    Details of Disappearance

    Christopher and his sister Lisa were abducted by their mother, Susan Elizabeth Zaharias. Susan had been married to the children's father, Louis Zaharias, for six years and their relationship had many problems. Louis stated Susan was abusing cocaine and behaving "recklessly" in 1987. On the morning November 20, 1987, the couple had a major argument. Later that day, while Louis was at work, Susan absconded with the two children.

    A photograph and vital statistics for Susan are posted below this case summary. A felony warrant for crimes against persons was issued for her on February 17, 1988. She also has a warrant out for her arrest for custodial interference. Lisa, Christopher and Susan were known to have stayed with a family in Pennsylvania for a time after the children's abductions, and there have been reported sightings of Susan alone in Michigan and Oklahoma, but their current whereabouts are unknown.

    Christopher, Lisa and Susan may be traveling in a black 1986 Toyota 4-Runner with license plates numbered 2X85442. Susan has relatives living in Oklahoma and may be in that state; in Sarina, Michigan; or in Lake Elsinore, California; Orange County, California; or in northern California. Some agencies state that Lisa and Christopher disappeared from Mission Viejo, California.

    Susan Zaharias is in NamUs -- https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/14783/85

    There isn't a photo in her NamUs listing and I had been looking at her off and on as possibly being a few different UIDs (but now that I see her photo, I can say that she definitely is not). NamUs lists her and her children as being missing from Mission Viejo, CA and the circumstances are as follows --

    I'm closer to where they were living before Susan and the kids went missing, but do have family in Pittsburgh, so I shared the page, too.

    I asked the person in charge of the facebook page what the connection to Greensburg is and she said that Susan has family from here. Greensburg is a City, but not really big.... I told the person to message me the names of the people in Greensburg, she said she did, but I never received it.

    I thought by possibly knowing the names of the relatives, I could know them or know someone who does..

    After checking my inbox on FB, I did receive a message from the Administrator of the Zaharias children FB page. She gave me the names of Susan's sister and her husband. The husband is a Priest of an Orthodox church in Gbg. I don't think I know of anyone that goes to the church, but would like to know if these people actually know what happened to their neice and nephew.
