xx Shania Supanich - FOUND SAFE - DAD ARRESTED
« Thread started on: Dec 7th, 2004, 9:00pm »

Shania has been abducted by her non-custodial father. Please read the excerpt from the website below:

Shania was last seen with her non custodial father, MARK SUPANICH.

Mark has ties in Auburn, Washington and in the state of Michigan. He may be living in his motor home and traveling from campsite to campsite. He may be in Canada or Mexico.

Mark is 46 years old, 6'2 inches tall, 200 pounds, blonde/balding, and has blue eyes. His date of birth is 05/07/1958.

Mark works in the construction trade; his specialty is roofing. He has a long history of alcohol abuse and has a suspended drivers license. He has an extensive civil record (domestic violence). He has been arrested for poaching a deer in Dear Park Washington.

The motor home in question is a 1992 Kountrystar Numar. His last known vehicle was a 1987 brown Chevrolet Conversion Van with a large tinted window on the sliding glass door. He also drove his ex wife's Suburban on a regular basis. It is a burgundy fully loaded 1996 with the license plate number 897LMG (Washington State). The last five or so cars that he owned are not registered under his name. He had bought them through M & D Construction (including the motor home).

Mark is listed as part owner of M&D Construction however on the company records his last name is spelled "Sapanich." He may be using this new spelling of his name as well as the alias "Dwayne Supanich."

Additional information: Mark is a member of Eagles. He has a lifetime membership with Whiskey Creek Resorts and he has been known to sell Quixtar Products (Amway). He has been in the restaurant business and prides himself in his homemade BBQ sauce. He is a fervent hunter and outdoorsman.

He also has a cell phone through T-Mobile (253) 632 - 0150 although it is now disconnected. If you have any way of knowing how to trace this number or know how to retrieve the records, I beg you to help us!

It is a quite possible that the non custodial father has cut the child's hair in order to dramatically change the child's looks or even pass her off as a little boy.

Mark is a firm believer in home schooling and insists on home schooling Shania himself (exclusively) although he, himself, is a high school drop out and he tragically lacks the skills needed in order to home school this child with any success.

As of June 14th, Mark Supanich has a FELONY WARRANT for his arrest.

It is imperative that this child be found ASAP. If you have any information please contact the Auburn Police Department at 1-253-931-3080.

xx The Disappearance of Shania Supanich
« Reply #1 on: Jan 13th, 2005, 06:45am »

Christmas is a time for families to celebrate, it has frequently been said over the years, which makes it an incredibly difficult time of the year for those who have lost one or more children. It is especially difficult for a parent if they do not know where their child is, or even if they are safe.

The mother of Shania Supanich described her Christmas as a nightmare. It was on 2 April 2004 that Shania, her 'baby', was taken from her in Aubern, Washington, USA. On that day Shania, who was five years old at the time, had been with her non-custodial father, Mark Supanich, and neither have been seen or heard of since.

Mark Supanich has a history of alcohol abuse and domestic violence. It is assumed that he has absconded with his daughter and there are serious concerns for Shania's safety.

In April 2004 Mark Supanich owned a 1992 Kountrystar Numar motor home and it is possible that he and Shania are travelling around North America in this vehicle. Whilst it is believed that they could be in the Aubern area, or else where in the state of Washington, Mark has ties in the state of Michigan and it is a possibility that they could have travelled as far a field as Canada or Mexico.

Shania was born on 17 May 1997 and so she is six years of age at present. She is Caucasian, with blue eyes, 4'0" tall, and at the time of her disappearance she weighed 62 lbs. Shania has a gap between her front teeth and a birthmark on her upper right arm. When she was last seen Shania had red hair below her shoulders but it is believed to be possible that her father could have cut her hair very short and that he could even be making her pose as a young boy to prevent her from being recognised.

It is unlikely that she is attending any school, as Mark is a keen advocate of 'home schooling.' Therefore she probably has minimal contact with anyone other than her father.

Mark Supanich himself is forty six years of age. He is described as being 6'2" tall, weighs approximately 200 lbs, has blonde receding hair and blue eyes. Mark uses the alias 'Dwayne Supanich' and might be spelling his surname as Sapanich. He may be working as a roofer, in the construction industry, which is what he is most experienced as, if he is working at all. He is a keen hunter and outdoorsman.

Mark Supanich is potentially dangerous and so it is imperative that he is caught so that Shania can be safely returned to her mother. A warrant for his arrest has been issued.

If you have any information regarding the whereabouts of Shania or Mark Supanich after 2 April 2004, please contact Aubern Police Department at 1-253-931-3080, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678 (1-800-THE-LOST) or contact myself at sclomax2004@yahoo.co.uk

Waiting for a kidnapper's mistake - Auburn youth has been missing for almost a year
2005-03-20
by Mary Swift
Journal Reporter


AUBURN -- Sandy Pedigo keeps her cell phone on 24 hours a day, praying for a call that never comes.

She has been waiting for nearly a year.

On April 2 of last year, Pedigo walked her 6-year-old daughter, Shania, to her first grade classroom at Auburn's Terminal Park Elementary School, kissed her goodbye, and went to work.

That afternoon, Shania's father, Mark Supanich, picked her up at school for what was supposed to be a weekend visitation.

Supanich and Pedigo had shared custody. But days earlier, a judge in Tacoma had altered Supanich's visitation rights and ordered him to get parenting classes and treatment for anger management.

Pedigo knew Supanich was angry.

``He was red, beet red, he was so mad,'' she said.

What she didn't know was how soon his anger would turn into action.

At 6 p.m. Sunday, April 4, Pedigo sat in her car in the parking lot of the south Auburn McDonald's waiting for Supanich and Shania.

It was neutral territory for the agreed-upon exchange of a young daughter between two very estranged parents.

Supanich never showed.

``I knew right away,'' Pedigo said. ``I knew when I tried his cell phone. I was in court the next Tuesday morning. The judge ordered sole custody for me with no contact between father and daughter. By then, it was already too late. He was gone.''

And so was Shania, the little red-haired, blue-eyed girl who loved Baskin-Robbins clown cones and her cat, Doughnut, and who turned 7 shortly after her abduction.

In June, a felony warrant for custodial interference was issued for Supanich, who has worked in roofing and construction.

Sandy Pedigo, who works as a forklift operator in a warehouse, has became all too familiar with the world of missing children in the months since Shania disappeared.

Shania is listed with the National Crime Information Center, the FBI database, with the Canadian Police Information Center and with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, among other organizations. Information on Shania's abduction is on a number of Web sites.

She's had her photo on ADVO cards, those advertising cards that are sent out bearing images of missing children.

There have been leads, Pedigo said.

But so far, nothing has panned out.

``Basically, we're waiting for him to screw up,'' Pedigo said of Supanich.

And that's frequently how a parent who abducts a child is found, said Detective. Carolyn Griffin, who is assigned to the King County Sheriff's Department Child Find Unit.

Nationally, there are an estimated 360,000 parental abductions a year, she said. Those can last from an hour -- to years.

A parent who abducts a child usually claims it's to protect that youngster. The reality, Griffin said, ``is it's about power and control and using the child to beat up the other parent. The kids are given new names, isolated from family and friends, often kept out of school.

``Some parents brainwash the kids and alienate them from the other parent.

``I had one mother who took off with her children and convinced them her husband was the Green River Killer and he would kill them if he found them. The kids went ballistic when they were found. They thought they were going to be killed.''

Reunification therapy often is used to help children who are returned after a lengthy abduction, Griffin said.

Deborah Brady, a senior case manager at the Center for Missing and Exploited Children is Pedigo's contact there.

When a parent abducts a child, he or she often reinvents himself with a new identity and, sometimes, a new appearance, she said. But there is often someone -- a family member or a friend -- who knows the whereabouts of the child.

And there are times when a neighbor or someone at a school may suspect that something isn't quite right about a story.

``We do get calls from school personnel,'' Brady said.

And sometimes, she said, a friend or family member who knows where the child may be ``has a change of heart.

``Sometimes it's that person saying, all of a sudden, `This has gone on too long.' That's what we hope for in publicizing these cases.''

Brady, a veteran of 18 years in the missing child field, recalls her first resolved case. That was two boys, abducted by their father and held for five years.

``There have been thousands and thousands of cases since then,'' said Brady, whose current caseload is 300 children. ``They do get resolved.''

Credit more than 300 ``photo partners'' that publicize photos of missing children for helping that happen.

``About one in six children are recovered based on a poster being released,'' Brady said. ``Those pictures are worth a thousand words.''

And that's the reason Pedigo keeps working to keep Shania's story -- and picture -- in the public eye.

``I work every day to do something to keep this alive,'' she said. ``That's what keeps me going, what keeps me strong. Wherever she is, what I want her to know is that I love her -- and I will never stop looking for her.''

After scanning some other sites this morning, it appears that Shania's mom had a remembrance in Shania's favorite park today. A poster from this other site attended and talked about how moving it was. Also that a few new tips have come in to LE.

Everyone is praying for Shania to be returned safely to her mother very soon.

xx Auburn girl abducted in 2004 found in Montana, fat
« Reply #7 on: Sep 28th, 2006, 3:00pm »


HELENA, Mont. -- A girl abducted by her father two years ago from Auburn, Wash., during a bitter child custody dispute has been found near Helena, the U.S. Marshals Service said Wednesday.
Lewis and Clark County sheriff’s deputies were checking an address northeast of the state capital when they spotted Shania Supanich, 9, on Tuesday evening, authorities said. She had been missing since April 2004 when her father, Mark Supanich, did not return her to her mother after a weekend visit.

“It’s amazing how she was missing for over two years and suddenly she was right in front of the deputy,” U.S. Marshal Dwight MacKay said in a statement issued Wednesday.

Deputies went to the area after a tip developed by the Pacific Northwest Fugitive Apprehension Task Force in Seattle indicated the homeowner had been a friend of Supanich.

After an elderly couple identified the father and daughter from photographs as a man and girl who had recently moved in across the street, the girl noticed them while walking her dog, “ran over to the deputy” and told him who she was, said Dan Orr, a supervisory deputy U.S. marshal in Billings.

“It was kind of an emotional time — the girl broke down and said she loved her dad,” Orr told The Seattle Times.

A deputy then spoke to her 48-year-old father by telephone and persuaded him to return to the house and surrender to deputies.
“It was a pretty traumatic event on her when this whole thing came down,” Sheriff Cheryl Liedle said Wednesday.

Liedle said the girl was turned over to the state child protective services agency, which would not comment.

Eric Robertson, U.S. marshal for Western Washington, told The Times the girl’s mother, Sandy Supanich, left Auburn on Wednesday morning to drive to Helena.

Mark Supanich, 48, appeared before Justice of the Peace Wally Jewell on Wednesday and was ordered held without bail on a federal warrant for flight to avoid prosecution. Jewell said Supanich also was named on a warrant for custodial interference.

A District Court hearing on extradition had not been set, Jewell said.
At the time of his arrest, Supanich had been putting siding on a house at a construction site. He told deputies he and his daughter had been in the area a few months and that he had been planning to relocate within a few days to avoid capture, according to MacKay’s statement.

He and the girl vanished nearly 2½ years ago soon after a judge ruled that he could not continue to see his daughter unless he participated in anger management classes and parenting programs. By the girl’s mother was granted sole custody, the girl and her father were gone.

The case was featured on the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s Web site and on “America’s Most Wanted,” a television program.

“We hope this provides hope to the thousands of parents out there who have a missing child,” Robertson said. “We in the Marshals Service are just ecstatic we could play a role in the safe return of Shania to her mother.

“This case shows that you can relocate as many times as you like, you may hide and avoid detection for a period of time, but eventually we will find you and we will never, never stop looking for a missing child.”
