FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- Brittney Clark of Fort Wayne was looking for answers in July after her son nearly drowned while in the Indiana Department of Child Services' custody.
Now another mother Tonya Martin is looking for answers after she said her son ended up having a broken leg while in foster care.
“They can't even talk to their parents. It's not right. It's not fair to the kids. It's not fair to me. It's not fair to the grandparents," Martin said.
Tonya Martin said she hasn't been able to talk to her child at all.
While at a public hearing today for her case, another father, Benjamin Byerline realized they were both having the same problem- not getting the answers they are asking for.
“Somebody who is submitting false evidence, and doesn't return phone calls says they're in the best interest of the child. Yet that's all proven to be false," he explained.
FOX 55 has reached out to the Department of Child Services about the accusations from both Martin and Byerline of mishandling cases but did not receive a response.
