Police search for mother, children

Wed., April 7, 2010

Spokane police are searching for a woman and her two young children after she reportedly violated court restrictions during an alleged domestic assault on Saturday.

Patricia Lyons, 25, is wanted for second-degree assault. Police believe she’s with her 5-year-old daughter, Athena Lyons, and 2-year-old son, Ronnie Adams.

The children were returned to Lyons under a court order that police say Lyons violated Saturday when she allegedly stabbed her ex-boyfriend.

The children are to return to state custody, but police can’t find Lyons.

Lyons “is not in a healthy mental state” and the children may be at risk, according to a news release. She may be driving a white Chevy Lumina with Washington license plates 229 XWX.

Anyone with information on Lyons should call 911.
