Wanted to share this with everyone in this & other groups on this website, for those who are aware of this sweet boy that is missing, its now 3 MONTHS & only leads, but they have come up with ZERO & this response is from Avonte's mother FB page (Offical Help Find Avonte, please like & pass around) & let others know as well;

We want to thank everyone for all of your help over the Christmas and New Years Holiday. We would like to clarify that we have sought the help of the FBI and had petitioned them to take the lead in the investigation regarding Avonte. There are several legal reasons they gave us for not being legally permitted to take over the investigation. The most noted is that the NYPD has listed Avonte as a missing person, not a victim of kidnapping or other such federal offense(s) that would require the FBI's involvement. It is our deepest desire for the FBI to get involved but there is a system in place that requires protocol, we cannot force the FBI to get involved and we continually ask and pray they do. We appreciate everyone's effort and tips and ask that you continually pray and volunteer to help find Avonte. Please volunteer your time and visit us 21-81A 24th Street Astoria, NY 11105 our number is 718 606 6610 Thank you. 

 

Every little bit helps, if you know someone in the media, anything we need to do something, more like yesterday....

 

As always thank you very much for taking time to read this & passing along & not giving up on finding Avonte........Together WE WILL BRING AVONTE HOME!!!!

 

Amen

I think you posted this before, right?

Do you know why he's listed as a missing person and not a victim of kidnapping?

How old is he? What does the family think happened? Is there a possibility he may have run away?

Yes I have & have been since he went missing back in Oct 4th & the NYPD havent listed as a kidnapping....yet, because they can say that he has been , they only have video of him running out of the school, they dont have any evidence that someone took on, only the video of him leaving the school around lunchtime........thats all ..

I know a family who lost their son more than 20 years ago now, in mysterious circumstances that have never been explained. He was 4. 

I'm pretty sure the praying had no effect.
