Tracy Davis, Micah’s mother, was informed of the incident by Tubbs. Thereafter, Tubbs asked the mother to lie to the police and tell the police that the child was at a birthday party. Tubbs was released on a $1,000 bond. Child and Family Services is investigating NaNa’s Day Care, but the mother said she does not want to press charges.

GPS devices are on the market that can help parents and caregivers find missing children. While the devices may be extremely helpful in certain instances, they are not and should not be substitutes for diligent parental / adult supervision of children. There are thousands upon thousands of missing children reported missing every day. Some wander away while others are abducted. Hopefully, new technology will help concerned parents and caregivers locate missing or abducted children. You can read more about the recent trends at GPS Devices Help Give Parents Peace of Mind.

Technology can aid law enforcement and the public in locating missing children. The disappearance of Madeleine made international headlines. In 2007, Madeleine was 3 years old. Today, she would be 6. She disappeared on a family vacation in Prai da Luz, Portugal. An expert working at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children created the digital image using prior photographs of the child. The parents recently appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show to publicize the photo, technology, and ongoing search for their daughter.

Ten years ago, Adam Herrman was an 11 year old boy living in a mobile home park in El Dorado, Kansas. He was previously in the foster care system and then adopted when he was 2 1/2 years old by Doug and Valerie Herrman. Adam disappeared when he was 11 years old but it was not reported to authorities by his adoptive parents, Doug and Valerie Herrman. According to the Herrman’s attorney / lawyer, the Herrmans did not harm the child and only violated the Kansas law of failing to report that he was missing. A search of the area and association will be performed by law enforcement authorities. Adam Herrman is 21 years old if he is still alive today.

winter%20on%20tree%20branch.jpgWinter weather brings sub zero temperatures to many parts of the United States including Iowa. In Laurens, Iowa, authorities found a 7 year old walking around in sub zero temperature alone with inadequate clothing. The child was found and put in protective custody. The child had walked at least a half of a mile. The boy was so cold that he couldn’t speak. If the boy had spent more time outside, he was at risk for hypothermia and even death. The boy’s parents, Eugene and Stacy Lane, were cited for child endangerment by local police and then released. The child now will be subject to proceedings by the State in which the parents will need to appear. I expect that the State of Iowa will require the parents to participate in a parenting plan in order to regain custody of the child unless there are instances of neglect and abuse from this household.
