8-month-old Ashlyn was last seen on July 20, 1995 in Dallas, Oregon. Ashlyn's parents, Tara and Dan Wilson were involved in a custody dispute at the time. Even though Tara and Dan share the same last name, they were never married.
Dan filed for custody of Ashlyn shortly after she was born. Dan has never seen his own daughter. When Tara failed to appear at any of the custody hearings and disappeared with Ashlyn, the courts granted custody to Dan.
On July 20, 1995, an arrest warrant was issued in Polk County for Tara, charging her with violating the court order granting Dan's visitation rights. On January 8, 2003, an FBI warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution was issued for Tara. Tara and Ashlyn may now be living in Montana, California, Canada, or Latin America. Tara's parents live in Polk County and Ashlyn's case remains unsolved.
In May 17, 2013, Ashlyn has been found safe Link.
