Father who abandoned son still wants reunion

Email

HASTINGS, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota father accused of abandoning his 11-year-old son last summer has again asked to be reunited with the boy.

Sixty-year-old Steven Cross of Lakeville renewed his request Wednesday during a child-protection hearing.

But the judge says a court-appointed doctor says Cross "lacks empathy" for the boy. The doctor recommended against a reunion right now.
