Man faces charges of parental kidnap in Braintree case

BRAINTREE — A man who lost custody of his two young children in January 2012 in a neglect case and who allegedly abducted them Monday from their foster home here is facing parental kidnapping and other charges.

It remains unclear how Jon T. Lockwood discovered the ­address of the foster home, but the alleged abduction came a short time after he attended a scheduled supervised visit with his children at a state Department of Children and Families office in Braintree, a meeting that was monitored by police, said DCF spokeswoman ­Cayenne Isaksen.
