COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The man who police say disappeared with his children appeared in court for the first time on Thursday, Aug. 25.
Jarvis Brown was scheduled to be in Recorder's Court at 9 a.m., but his attorney never arrived.
Reports say the two couldn't reach a payment agreement with Brown's spouse.
Brown is facing in-state custody interference charges when he didn't return his four children to their mother.
Brown and the children, who are between the ages of 5 and 9, were missing for three days before he turned himself on Monday.
