April 29, 2011

On April 6, 2011, Wisconsin psychiatrist Kimberly Hammes Frank was arrested in Collier County, Florida for attempting to abduct two children from a Naples beach. 

She was charged with felony child abuse without great harm. 

News reports state that a mother was playing with her three children (ages 4, 8 and 9) in the water when Frank approached them and grabbed the two oldest ones and began screaming “These are my kids, Mattie and Meredith” and attempted to reason with the mother that the children were actually hers. 

The father had to pry Frank’s hands off the children. 

Frank refused to be interviewed by Collier County detectives.
