    Van Nguyen came to the United States from Vietnam as a teenager. Her parents wanted their four children to have a better life and more opportunities.

    Van Nguyen found the opportunity to work at the Argosy Casino as a dealer. She also found a husband.

    Nguyen's family said she endured a miserable marriage for their two children, John and Kristina. However, the couple later decided to end the marriage. Nguyen talked about ending her life.

    This year divers searched using high tech sonar equipment. Like all the other searches, cars are always found, but not Nguyen's Nissan Pathfinder.

    In the '70s, a young woman moved to the CA area from Japan. She soon met and married a young gentleman from her home country. After the birth of their second child, she discovered the husband had been cheating on her. In a tradition of her culture, she blamed herself for failing her husband. Again following tradition, she took her children under her arms and walked into the ocean. On-lookers were able to save her, but not the children. She was tried for murder, but due to the strong cultural tradition bred into her both the prosecution and jury were lenient.

    It would appear a similar tradition exists in other eastern cultures...

    When I read the story, I wondered if the family had made contact with the people in the village she came from. If maybe she could have gotten a false passport and id's and have gone back to Vietnam. If so, LE is not likely to find her, but there is a chance that the family might. A personal visit from the family to that village, might prompt information if she kept in contact with anyone there, or if she had ever returned there. The family seems pretty certain that she may be alive.

    With regards to the paragraph in the opening thread that a custodial parent is subject to criminal prosecution and a non-custodial parent is not is not correct - especially in the State of Ohio.

    A non-custodial parent who fails to support his child or children is subject to a charge of felony non-support which on conviction can carry a term of up to five years in the state penitentiary. I know of a number of individuals who have been convicted of this in Hamilton County (Cincinnati), Ohio and served time. At the same time, a non-custodial parent who has been ordered to pay support by a judge may be found in contempt (which is a civil finding) for this failure and be sentenced to jail for 30, 60 or 90 days.
