AZ - Man, 63, caught decades after allegedly impregnating, kidnapping girl
Deputy U.S. Marshals and law enforcement officers in Kentucky arrested James David Gibson on Wednesday, about two years after his alleged 13-year-old victim came forward to authorities.

Authorities said that, after learning that the victim was pregnant, Gibson kidnapped her and together they fled to Tennessee.
So all this time (from 1980) up until 2009 she was missing??
It was not until 2009 that the victim came forward and law enforcement authorities opened their case.
Am I understanding correctly?
James Gibson is in Kentucky, charged with kidnapping and sexual assault of a minor
Authorities say he impregnated a relative about three decades ago, then fled Arizona
Fearing for her life, the alleged victim waited until her daughter grew up to come forward.
Snipped from above article!
Uggghh this disgusting man, god only knows how many other "family & nonfamily" victims he has out there!!

The most chilling comment, IMO, in Peeples' link is:
"....Gibson was eventually found again in Jenkins, Kentucky, where he was living with a granddaughter...."
History has a tendency to repeat itself.

Isn't there a statute of limitations on child molestation/statutory rape/incest? I think there is and it isn't 30 years.
Not sure how the "daughter was now an adult and able to defend herself" plays into this. Do adult females become bullet proof? Or abuse proof? This is a VERY VERY strange story indeed! I am thinking the "kidnapping charge" is what counts, and this was one very very weird situation that well.....hmmmm.
