Did they say the name of the complex?
Once you pass Shepherd on 43rd and 43rd turns into Crosstimbers, the area gets to be worse with crime/drugs.
Here is the sign in front of the complex I think they might live in:
Looks to me to say, "Garden Oaks Village"
I'd like to know:
* how it was confirmed that he made it home to get the video.
* who, if anyone, was at his home when he got there
* if the video is missing
* if Mom and stepdad were at work when he disappeared
* if there were other kids at the sitter's, or anyone who can confirm the sitter's story, and exactly when did the sitter realize he was missing and notify parents or LE?
I wonder if his unexpected arrival at his home interrupted or surprised someone who expected him to be at the sitter's house. Did he see something he shouldn't have...or did he just happen to cross paths with a random predator?
If I have the location correct then the zip is: Houston, TX 77018
Do any of the locals or Texas people know where we find SO in that area?
according to this article: http://www.khou.com/news/local/Autho...112505914.html
Authorities said Jonathon Foster vanished from his Garden Oaks home sometime on Christmas Eve.
Foster was last seen by his stepfather around 1:45 p.m. Friday. A few minutes later, his mother received a mysterious phone call at work.
"Someone called and said it was an emergency," said Gifford. "But by the time she picked up the phone, no one was there."
my comments...this whole case has me enraged! No media coverage for a child gone missing Christmas Eve??? Wondering...
1. When was he reported missing? I haven't found that yet..or I missed it if it was previously reported.
2. How long was he to "stay" with the babysitter?
3. What's the sitter saying??????
Heads up guys. Nancy Grace is covering this tonight! This poor family for this to happen on Christmas Eve of all nights!!
<snipped, stolen, or whatever I am supposed to say>>
<modsnip: See what raveon said on December 27, 2010 at 5:48 PM - she is curious about the tracks at 43rd & TC Jester>

From the link above - this area is not really all that close to where he was last seen. He would have had to have been taken to this location. Wonder if they got a lead?Volunteers from Texas Equusearch searched through the woods Monday near the railroad tracks at T.C. Jester and 43rd Street.
Such an awful, sad story -- can't see a good ending. Poor little guy was smaller than my 10 yr old. He just wanted to get some video games on Christmas Eve.
How awful...I hope Tim Miller can locate this sweet little boy. NG covering this story now.
Man named Joe Gomez on Nancy Grace is saying that the circumstances are mysterious he was last seen by either his babysitter or stepfather.
Amber Alert just issued.
Does this child have a cell phone ?

He was at his babysitters Friday Afternoon and at 1:15PM left to go get some videos games. He has done this before to go get games. Lives in same neighborhood as as babysitter. He has ADD. Police are saying he's been potentially kidnapped.
NG: live with Jean C.
12 yr old vanishes into thin air on Xmas Eve. Disappearance is "suspicious". Why would a little boy disappear a day before Xmas? Just issued an amber alert for this case.
Nobody knows where Jonathan is, and the weather is very cold. Do we know how far J walked from his babysitters to his home? J is 12 yr old and knows what he is doing.
J has ADD. We know LE is searching for child. J mother and stepfather are cooperating.
OMG!! 1,442 s/o in the area.
Conflicting stories from various family members means this isn't looking good.

NG: inner city Houston, city environment. Conflicting reports where J was. Stepfather may be the last person who saw him. Case is breaking right now. LE getting conflicting stories from family.
The police are confused and getting conflicting stories... that's always good.
I'm not interested in the guy who slept with his 16 year old girlfriend, or peed behind a building. Even someone who raped an adult woman is not likely to be involved here. This is likely NOT a registered sex offender but if it IS, it is likely someone with a history of this same victim type.
