Every where we thought he would go he hasn't no one has seen him.
He is suicidal as well. He was very upset when he left his father's...

Barbara, I've sent this on to someone I know who knows a lot of people around (is a driver) and also has some experience with autistic children. I hope it helps.

Re: Missing Autistic and Bipolar child - 10/12/08 11:21 PM

Would the radio stations be able to put something out there for people to be on the lookout, or even for him to hear that people are worried and miss him and that he needs to call home?

You're in my prayers, keep the positive thoughts. I know, easier said then done, more good people are on the lookout now \:\)

Near Newark I guess... no one is giving me answers...
I am sitting by the phone constantly waiting for anything.
Do not dare to leave in case I get a call from him or the sheriff.

Ok, well, listen, hawley's daughter is on his account right now, i know her personally, she is a really good person, she wants to know what she can do to help...so, if you could post here and let her know if there is something she can do that would be great.

Re: Missing Autistic and Bipolar child - 10/13/08 11:17 AM

The only thing anyone can do , besides pray, is keep their eyes out for him. That is all I am asking. Like I said I am afraid to leave the phone.... what if he calls or the sheriff? I truly appreciate any help!

Re: Missing Autistic and Bipolar child - 10/13/08 11:23 AM

The Father was calling them earlier to tell them that info. so hopefully they will do that. The father has not been calling me with updates I have to keep calling them. I will until he is found and they can deal with it. I raised that boy for 17 years and they wanted a try... Well, I know him better than anyone. He needs to come back here where he will stay safe. Period.
When we find him I will try to make that happen quickly.

Do they think he's in Wayne County, still? They should be telling you something.

Re: Missing Autistic and Bipolar child - 10/13/08 04:57 PM

They said nothing more than OH he is probably hanging out there somewhere.... he said it like you know how kids are...
I am sitting here losing my mind and they are like you know he is just another one of them kids.

Then to top it off.
I keep trying to Call Pete's father.
They one have a cell phone.
He shut the phone off... says taking no calls at this time...

What father turns off his only phone when his son is missing??????/


I am telling you They will be locking me up in the loony bin... I cannot take very much more.

Barbara, have you tried the media? A missing Autistic youth, with his picture on the news may put a fire under the police, or at the very least put his picture out there for more people to see... Just my 2 cents...

Hope everything turns out ok!

Re: Missing Autistic and Bipolar child - 10/13/08 07:36 PM

Around here, the only way to get the cops attention is to have a skateboard. They are always on my sons ass cuz he has his board. i called 911 once to report that my ex had been drinking and driving with the kids in his truck, the response: That's not really a big deal ma'am.
Posted by: ChrisGriffin

Re: Missing Autistic and Bipolar child - 10/13/08 07:37 PM

I think the last thing you want people doing is calling the police repeatedly. They will only get more annoyed. They are doing their best to find him.

I am sure because, and I am not saying this is the case with your son, by it seems 99.9 percent of all missing kid cases result in being the son-daughter ran off with someone they met on the Internet

Come on seriously, whats the point? I don't know you or what your intentions are here but Barbara has been through so much emotionally over the past few months... Is it really necessary to bend her words into an argument about her expressing her frustrations about the way SHE feels SHE was treated by the officer handling the case?

You seem to be very defensive about law enforcement..are you a police officer? If so, I hope you stick to parking meter duty.

This woman has been through so much in the last 24 hours plus and then you have the gall to chide her during the time she is elated to have her son back. SHAME ON YOU! If you don't have something nice to say at this point, back off!
