Clearfield, PA –  A couple who are accused of hiding their children from Clearfield County CYS were arrested and are making their way through the court system.

32-year-old Lauren Hyson and 31-year-old Tony Hodge, both of Philadelphia, waived their preliminary hearings. They are both facing felony charges for concealing the whereabouts of a child.

It started when CYS was awarded custody because Hyson and Hodge were both reportedly using several kinds of drugs.

CYS workers later also found the children were living in dangerous conditions and were not getting appropriate care for their medical conditions.

Hyson and Hodge allegedly took the children to Philadelphia so CYS would not find them. The children are reportedly now in a safe home.
