Wells community supports Ark.family trying to get their daughter back

Posted: Updated:

(KYTX) - The family of Arkansas girl, Catherine Grove, is speaking to the entire Wells community tonight -- about the controversial church their daughter has joined.

26-year-old Catherine Grove disappeared from Arkansas in June, to join an evangelist born again Christian group called "The Church of Wells."
 
Her parents, Andy and Patty Grove say Catherine has cut communication with them, and are worried about her. 
 
That's why they are holding a meeting with the wells community, which is supporting them. 

"We were asked to come and speak. We only want to tell our story, how we came to Wells, why we're in Wells, and why we haven't come home yet and we want to share with other parents and families our experience." 

During welfare checks Cherokee County Sheriff's Deputies say Catherine seems healthy.

She tells deputies she wants to stay- and because she is 26, he can make her own decisions.

The meeting is tonight at 7 at the Falvey United Methodist Church in Wells.
