September 28, 2011 

A Pierce County judge ruled this afternoon that the sons of a missing Utah mother cannot be safely returned to their father, who has long been a person of interest in his wife's 2009 disappearance.

Judge Kathryn Nelson issued the ruling after hearing from the state and Josh Powell regarding the custody of Josh and Susan Cox Powell's two sons, ages 4 and 6. The judge is now deciding who will get custody of the boys.
