      A 60-year-old woman accused of abducting her baby grandson from Florida in 2000 moved around Missouri with the child for more than a decade, working at times in residential care facilities. Sandy Hatte was arrested and charged this month with felony child abduction. She appeared in Livingston County court Wednesday when a judge set a preliminary hearing for Oct. 23. The grandson is now a teenager. He's been reunited with his father and has returned to live with him in Alabama. Investigators aren't saying how Hatte and the child got by or where they lived. But an official with a Sedalia-based residential care company says Hatte worked for the company for a few years and was a "very good employee."
