    I wonder what happened to the two little boys. Maybe, since he moved back to Washington, her parents were part of their lives. I hope so. Does anybody know?

    It has been reported Jokumsen is homeless and had built a lengthy criminal history. Jokumsen was arrested for being a fugitive from justice and was first taken to the SCORE jail in Des Moines before being transferred to the King County jail.

    I hope and pray those two little boys were able to grow up in a stable home...perhaps with her parents. This is really bothering me. Does anybody know what happened to them?

    I did find this...It was 6 years after Donna went missing...I do hope his mother provided a good home for the boys. So sad that they grew up without their mother...

    After failing a lie detector test about his wife's disappearance, Kevin Jokumsen eventually returned to Enumclaw, where he still lives with his mother and two sons.
    "I see the boys once a year, and they think their mother just ran away," Douglas said.

    "We don't tell them anything else, but some day, I hope they learn the real truth."
