Texas Woman's Ex-Spouse, Son Emerge After 17 Years

Filed under: Divorce & Custody, In The News


HOUSTON (AP) - A Dallas-area woman's ex-husband who fled in 1993 with their toddler has surrendered in Houston with the couple's now-20-year-old son.

An attorney for Stephen Palacios Jr. of Waco contacted federal authorities Thursday so his client could turn himself in at the lawyer's office. Palacios was held Friday on charges of interference with child custody. His attorney did not immediately return a call Friday.

Dee Ann Adams says she was awarded primary custody of their son when the couple divorced. She has since remarried.

Details on where her ex-husband and child have been, plus plans for the woman to reunite with her son, were not released.

Adams says authorities told her that her son saw an Aug. 29 Waco Tribune-Herald story about his disappearance and insisted that his father turn them in.
