SAN FRANCISCO — Two young sisters who had disappeared during a custody battle were dropped off at the doorstep of a San Francisco Bay area television station.
Two members of a group that helps parents get custody of children in county protective care delivered Anna Nunez, 6, and her sister Emily, 4, safely to KGO-TV studios in San Francisco Monday.
The girls had been at the center of a custody dispute after the 1999 divorce of their parents, Danny and Kelli Nunez of Contra Costa County.
The mother had accused Danny Nunez of child abuse, and the girls disappeared in April after Kelli Nunez picked them up from a day care center. Danny Nunez has never been charged with child abuse.
Kelli Nunez was arrested shortly after the disappearance, after telling a judge she had given the girls to strangers and had no idea where they were. She has been held on contempt of court charges at Contra Costa County jail.
