Douglass was shocked when his son Gunnar (10) and daughter Kianna (9) were abducted by their mother, Naoko Numakami (Berg) in August 2009. Gunnar and Kianna are wonderful kids who love both their mother and father. Before the children were kidnapped from their habitual and legal residence in the United States, they attended elementary school where they were taught in both English and Japanese. Their mother had taken the kids under false pretenses and told Douglass that she was just going on vacation to Japan; however, they did not return. Since the abduction, all communication has been lost between the children and their father. He has tried multiple times to contact his children at the grandparent’s home but no one will answer the phone or return any mail. He currently does not know where his children are residing. Douglass fears his son and daughter will suffer from parental alienation and dreams of the day where he can spend time with his children again. He simply wants the return of the children to Fairfax County VA where US Jurisdictional orders have already been established.
