    FL - Dontrell Melvin, 5 mos, Hallandale Beach, July 2011

    A 6-month old baby was reported missing Wednesday night — nearly 18 months after the now-2-year-old child went missing.

    snip

    Calvin Melvin, the missing boy’s biological father, told the investigator that his son is with his grandparents and that he has been living since 2011.

    When police went to the grandparents’ house, they were told the grandparents hadn’t seen the boy in over a year.

    Wait a minute. Who called CPS, the dad? The mom? Two of the three were found with the mom? Whose parents was the child supposed to be with, paternal or maternal. I am confused. I really really hope this child is a happy 2 year old living with a loving family somewhere.

    Father disappears as search for missing baby gears up

    http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/loc...,5891429.story

    The mother contacted authorities in October 2012 because Melvin had not allowed her to see her son during the previous 16 months.

    The Florida Department of Children and Families conducted an investigation but the findings were unknown, Flournoy said.

    The mother gave birth to another son, fathered by Melvin, since the disappearance of Dontrell. She and other relatives have been cooperating with police, Flournoy said.

    So the mother and father of the baby lived together? No one questioned where this baby was for 18 months, grandparents, mom, aunts, uncles?

    Melvin lived with the child's biological mother. He is father to two of her three children.

    "The mother has indicated that she hasn't seen her child since July 2011," Flournoy said. "She has questioned the father on numerous occasions as to the whereabouts of the child and the father always indicated that the child was with his mother, the child's grandparents, in Pompano."
    The mother may have accepted the arrangement because of financial pressures and the perception her son would be better off with his grandparents, he said.

    "Although the mother wanted to see the child, [she] was supportive of that [arrangement]," he said.

    BBM-It says they lived together but I know reporting isn't always accurate. But if they did live together...once again, another story that makes zero sense.

    Sadly, I am not surprised this happened in FL. FL is notorious for absent children going unnoticed for appalling amounts of time. For example, Rilya Wilson and Caylee Anthony.

    IMO they know where he is, or isn't- this just doesn't feel good at all

    I think it is okay to put the 'father' FB on here then?

    ike- snipped-
    Flournoy said later Thursday that the father said he dropped off his son at a fire station in Miami Gardens. However, all of the children left at Miami Gardens fire stations have been accounted for, he said.
