Boy Missing for 10 Years and Not Reported Missing

Have you guys been following this? A 10 or 11 year old boy was taken away from an abusive mother at the age of 2 only to be abused horribly by an adoptive mother. There's accounts from family that she made him sleep in the bathtub w/o pillows and blankets and beat him. They claim he ran away, but they still continued to claim him on their tax return. They've been looking for more evidence in the trailer park the family used to live in.

Do you think he's dead? After 10 years, I do. It was probably routine abuse that got out of hand. That woman doesn't deserve to live.

I live in Wichita, and this stuff is all over the news. One more thing this area will be remembered for. This, the woman stuck on the toilet for years, and the BTK killer. Nice.

  • I think the authorities have stated they are treating this case as a death. I hate to think of all the cases we never hear about. When the Adam case was resolved at Christmas I went to that website to see the other missing kids, and was floored by all the adults and kids missing for so long we never hear about on the news.

  • This is one of those stories that nake you go "WHAT?"! I hadn't heard about the abuse on the adopted mom's part, and that is just horrible. After this long I doubt he is alive....how horrible!

  • what kind of parents would do such a think even if they were adoptive parents doesn't mean they get to treat the kid like crap.

  • That is very sad for a child to be taken from an abusive situation and put back into one. Are charges being pursued?

  • Isn't this crazy?! I couldn't believe it either. My fear is that we are going start seeing a lot of these stories pop up!

    The bottom one is a local news story from today. I thought the 2 from ABC NEWS were the best.
