Article dated June 11, 2008
As of the date above Edward Lee was still out of the USA.
I can't find an article dated later than the above. I did see a poster that replied to an article about the child in brazil that was taken during a custody battle and that poster claimed to be Edward lee's father and claimed that the child was still in S. Korea dated june 2009.
...Meanwhile, Voinovich is protesting on behalf of Ohio resident Richard Melanson, whose son Eddie was allegedly abducted to South Korea by Kyong Mi Lee, the boy’s mother, after a custody dispute in 2007.
Voinovich’s office has been working with Melanson and the State Department to try to bring Eddie back to the United States and extradite Lee, who faces a federal child abduction warrant, an aide to Voinovich said.
But the South Korean government — not a party to the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction — has refused to help locate the child or act on the U.S. warrant, according to the aide.
“What we’re trying to do is to get the attention of the Korean government to participate in trying to catch her and extradite them back to the United States,” Voinovich said...
It appears he isn't missing but rather is with his non-custodial mother in S. Korea at this time and diplomats are negotiating his return. To no avail.
