The disappearance of a two year old can stir all kinds of emotions.
Take the recent case of missing Alvarado, Tx. child, Kevin Brown. He went missing, Thursday evening after last being seen playing outside with his 4 year-old brother. Police did not issue an Amber Alert because officials did not have a vehicle description or a suspect. They have conducted extensive searches, the parents have cooperated in their efforts and a reward of $14,000 has been offered.
“We should have found this little boy within the first two hours. … I don’t think he just walked off,” Johnson County Sheriff Bob Alford said. “He’s either gotten hurt and got trapped. Or he’s been abducted. “We’ve searched and re-searched, but we’ve got nothing,” Johnson County Sheriff Bob Alford said. “That’s why we’re offering a reward.”
Contrast his case with that off Trenton Duckett, the missing 2 year-old from Leesburg, Fl. where an Amber Alert was issued, his mother Melinda Duckett was viewed as less then cooperative and the reward is $5,000.
Both children remain missing. There are currently 36 missing children, under 3 years-old, listed on the NCMEC site.
