REDDING, Calif. - On Feb 7 at approximately 3:50 p.m., it was reported to the Trinity County Sheriff’s Office that Sheila Johnson had abducted her biological daughter, identified as Skye Greenway. The incident had occurred in the area of Weaverville, CA, and had been reported by Greenway’s lawful guardians, who held court-ordered relative paternal rights in regards to Greenway.

Officials say during the initial investigation, it was discovered that Greenway had collaborated with Johnson in regards to incident, as Greenway had not wished to return to her lawful guardians.

During the early morning hours of Feb 8, Johnson contacted the Trinity County Sheriff’s Office and provided her location and that of Greenway. Shortly thereafter, Deputies with the Trinity County Sheriff’s Office contacted both individuals in the area of Redding, CA. Both were in good health.

Officials say interviews were conducted, during which time it was determined that additional follow-up in regards to the initial investigation, would have to take place.

Trinity County Child Welfare Services was also contacted, during which time it was discovered that although Greenway is in a legal relative guardianship, Johnson still had the option of petitioning the courts for the full return of her parental rights.

Officials say Trinity County Child Welfare Services established a safety plan with the legal guardians and Johnson, as it pertained to Greenway. An agreement was reached; during which time it was determined that for the time being, Greenway would remain with Johnson.

Officials say no criminal charges are being sought at this time, although the matter remains under review.
