The mother of a missing Lewis County toddler was arrested again on Monday.

Lena Lunsford is said to have violated her probation by coming in contact with a felon, who is someone she was specifically told to stay away from. According to the Associated Press this the same offense that got her in trouble June 19.

Lunsford was arrested in Wheeling and taken to the Northern Regional Jail.

U.S. District Judge John Preston Bailey scheduled a revocation hearing for July 8 in Wheeling.
Lunsford served eight months in prison for federal welfare fraud after her 3-year-old daughter Aliayah disappeared from their Lewis County home.
The child has never been found, and no one has been charged in her disappearance.

She needs to be kept in prison FOR LIFE. When her baby is born, I hope the state will take the baby. She is an unfit Mother. WHERE IS ALIAYAH?

Just a matter of time before she finally 'confesses' and tells us where the child is buried. She is evil personified. She should not be running loose in society!
