  • Just remind him of your love, and that if possible you'll help him find her. I would check with her family. There must have been some reason she left though...but it's not right she didn't tell your bro that she was or where she went.

  • Report missing persons, if it's been 24 hours they will put out an alert. GL hope all goes well....

  • He could contact the police....One parent disappearing with a child is a recognized form of kidnapping, and the police could help with locating his kid.

  • I agree. Contact the police. She can't just leave and not let him know where she's going with his child.

  • I guess I should have said unless Domestic Violence is involved. If so, she may be in shelter.

  • Yeah, he needs to get this in front of a judge and get a motion to present the child in court so the matter of temporary custody can be dealt with. If he blows this off and lets dust collect then he's not going to be able to get a result he will like.

  • I agree with the others. He should contact a lawyer and find out what he needs to do to get his daughter back. I wish your brother luck!!
