Get him

Why would anyone steal a two year old? How on earth did this happen? Didn't her parents or whoever was watching her give chase?? Hope they find him, fast, and recover her. If he were in a car that would, oddly, probably make it easier to find him and get her back.
Very upsetting.

What did the CHILD look like?

What did the CHILD look like? A 2 year old in a pink jumper describes probably 1,000 kids in the area.

Unreal!

"was last seen running with the child towards Lake Olmstead Stadium,"

I guess the one or ones who saw him running with the child was in a wheelchair or using crutches or just didn't care. I feel anybody who could run could outrun anybody carrying a child!

Raul and all Hans...

...
Has hit upon something!

When an all points bulliten is put out because one spouse took a child versus another spouse; that is a big difference vs a child missing!

The point is, there should be a difference!!!

Else one can't "measure" the seriousness of the crime!
