Now I get it he was abducted from his own father. That means he was living with his father. The mother most been stupid for not telling the police from time to time I want to check on him maybe he got our son. I don’t think the father should go to jail for raising his son. The mother should pay 13 years child support. 🤣

The father did change his son’s name though

I having the dad isn’t going to serve a long sentence. It’s a custody’s issue. The father is charged for falsifying legal documents.

I don’t know if what I did to my son was kidnapping though.. He was born from a surrogate mother. I was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia and I had to be in a long term, possibly lifetime treatment & one of the possible side effects of the medication was a low sperm count. My doctor asked me if I wanted to preserve my sperm in a sperm bank, but since I was very much single without a gf at the time of my diagnosis, I don’t know how long I can preserve & it may cost me thousands of $$$. My treatment has to start immediately. So I had a crazy idea and decided to just hire a babymaker. Paid her to be pregnant but our agreement was no strings attached and when she gives birth I will get the child. So that’s what I did. I paid her, got the child, and parted ways. We have no communication until now. My son is now 6 y/o. The only request I had from the surrogate was to have her photo so my son knows he has a mother. I know that someday, he will ask questions about this.. what I only told him was her mother and I were ex-lovers and have parted ways.. 😢

if the mother kidnapped and raised the son up well the same way, people would be applauding and praising her motherly love. sexist community

Kidnapped means when a parent refuses to work with the corrupt custody courts now. Never go to court! They prey upon children and destroy lives.

A 16 year old going to college. Wait he was 5 when he was kidnapped and 13 years later he found out he’s a missing guy. But 5+13=18 Not 16 It’s like 9+10=21 xD

To all the people saying the father broke the LAW and KIDNAPPED his child, have you considered, that in many cases, the LAW might be wrong and should be adjusted. It is a fact that mothers get more rights regarding custody, often even when the father is equally or even more caring and responsible parent. If the law would stop to discriminate and take away fathers' custodial rights so easily, maybe men like this father would not have the need to "break the law", just to be able to raise their kids. The laws should be adjusted, and both parents should have equal custodial rights, unless one of them is not fit to have their parental rights.

Wow there are a lot of incentive people on this thread. Has no one ever heard of shared custody smh. In some situations there is a reason, but you people have no idea what the real story is.

for all we know the mother could have been doing so horrible things to the boy and the dad took him away
human being (2 months ago)
Only a nutjob would do this. He should've sought custody LEGALLY through the courts. He chose to commit a felony instead. He did it to be HATEFUL towards the mother. He wanted to hurt her in the worst way. Otherwise, he would've approached it the RIGHT way. How do I know? Because the shit happened to me. Why would someone CHOOSE to commit felony child abduction instead of simply filing for custody? Now his dumb ass will serve up to five years in prison & his son has lost valuable time with his mother. #SOCIOPATH

I'd say release the father, screw the mother. I find it frustrating that women should think they should be entitled to custody when statistically speaking children are better off with their fathers anyways. If the shoe were on the other foot, she would have been forgiven and it would have all been over with, with nothing more than a shrug of the shoulders. Overlook him, get the poor kid's father out. There are some things not worth prosecuting.

Taylor Made2 (2 months ago)
They're saying you can't abduct your own child unless the courts had already established custody. The man just took his son from the mother without her knowledge and raised him. That's cruel what he did to her but do we know the whole story? Maybe he wanted to see his son and she refused so he took him.

Something is _really_ missing from this story. Dad raised the kid well. Clearly mom was a lousy mother, because she apparently made no real attempt to find him. They were using their real names! And the local police were unaware of the situation! Meaning, she pbly kept right on smoking meth, and never cared about the boy's "disappreance". Sounds like the kid was better off not finding out...

"Goes back to his mom, life turns to shit and college is not an option anymore." Sometimes, things happen for a reason...be it good or bad. But being "abducted" by his father got him to attempting to enroll in collge at 16 years old. Pretty nice feat.

Sometimes if the mother is crazy bi5(h and says they will seperate. Automatically the mother thinks knows she could just keep kid thats our reality. If i ever I MEAN EVER have a kid. Im getting a contract signed. Fathers get the screwy side of deal they have less rights to parenting thats our realities truth and fact. #equality

Nes Vquez (3 months ago)
So the whole time he was with his biological father, was well raised and applying for college... Sounds like his dad wanted to get his son away from his mother to have a good life. My question is...... why did this man wanted his son away from his mother? Something is probably not right with the mother or the dad was simply being a selfish parent.
Spiraling Universe (3 months ago)
Nes Vquez it is much harder for father to have rights to parenting then the kids mother. A mother can just up and leave and she would not get in trouble. She as the mother knows that, sad truth for fathers.
