Lilly's dad, Robert Baumann, first reported the girl missing in May 2014 after Everett did not return with her; the parents share joint custody.

The motive behind the abduction was found in a note Everett had left her boyfriend, Carlos Lesters.

"If I let them take her and vaccinate her and brainwash her, I wouldn’t be doing what’s right," Everett had allegedly written to Carlos. "I cannot let a judge tell me how my daughter should be raised. We will miss you. But I had to leave."

Soon after the case was featured on CNN's The Hunt with John Walsh, a landlord renting property to Everett led police to her where she was living with her daughter in an RV. She is now behind bars and has lost custody of her child, who will be cared for by her dad.

Suffice to say, I am so glad this mom was caught: It's one thing to be anti-vax, but at least go through the proper channels and make your stance on the up-and-up. Don't kidnap your kid and live on the run for a year in an RV!

Because no matter how bad she imagined vaccinations could endanger her child, let's get real: Kidnapping your kid is way worse.
