The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children released aged-progressed photos of the missing twins from Penn Hills. Inisha and Ivon Fowler have been missing for 10 years.
Police began investigating their mother, Patricia Fowler, 47, after recently discovering two of her children have been missing for 10 years. The discovery was made after police removed four children from the home in June, at the request of Allegheny County Office of C.Y.F., and were later informed there should have been six children.
Fowler gave detectives conflicting answer as to their whereabouts. KDKA-TV reports she originally told investigators she sold the fraternal twins for $2,000 each. She then changed her story, saying they were living with a high school friend, then living with an out-of-state aunt.
None of her stories have yet been verified.

Police say they have no idea what happened to the boy and girl. They are identified as Ivon and Inisha Fowler. They would be about 17-years-old today.
Neighbors are shocked.

Fowler is facing several charges including hindering a child welfare investigation.
The brother of twins was arrested Friday. Datwon Fowler, 18, posed as his missing brother via phone to police. Police were able to track the phone to Penn Hills, not Atlanta where the caller claimed he was located.
WTAE reports Fowler admitted to contacting police pretending to be missing brother so that “everyone would leave them alone.”
