WHEELING, W.Va. — The mother of a missing Lewis County girl is back in custody.

Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal Alex Neville told MetroNews Wednesday deputy marshals arrested Lena Lunsford at the Wheeling Business College Wednesday morning.

Neville said Lunsford had failed to pay court-ordered restitution for three months. She also allegedly violated her supervised release by having contact with a convicted felon at least five times. She’s reportedly pregnant by the man. She has seven children.

Lunsford has been on supervised release after serving eight months following her conviction on federal food stamp fraud charges.

Lunsford’s daughter, three-year-old Aliayah, disappeared from the family home near Weston in September 2011. No one has been charged in connection with the disappearance.

Lunsford is scheduled to appear before a federal magistrate Monday at 11 a.m. She’s currently housed in the Northern Regional Jail.

    Perhaps she sold the child. It happens all the time nowadays. I certainly hope they find out the truth or the find the child one day. This woman needs to be locked away without conjugal visits forever.

    You are either a "maker" or a "taker". She is both . . . She makes babies and then takes the tax payers money. I would write more, but I can't cuz I have to go to work and make money that gets taxed to oblivion to support Lena's babies.

  • Beckie

    Yes, where is that child? Meanwhile this trash keeps right on getting pregnant. It sickens me. God help those children who are still living and not yet disappeared.....from this "mother".

    worthless white trash. the kids will pay the price for her laziness. people like this keep the radical liberals in power.

    I use to work with Lena she told me one day she sleeps with guys to get pregnant and uses the guys for child support so she won't have to work. And that way the guys support her and her habits.

    Another slap on the wrist and she will be back doing the same thing. I feel sorry for her kids.

    She is a product of "the world owes me everything" because I am to stupid to do anything on my own. America get use to this type of trash because she is not alone. Just take a look at every thing people get for free. Housing,phones,food,medical care,child care. No wonder America is in the shape we are in. Kids today refuse to grow up. Mommy and Daddy let them become what they are. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree,in most cases. What a waste of a life.
