    WA - Jaxon Smith, 5 mos, Vancouver, Nov 2013

    During the transfer, police said Jaxon's father, Kasey McKernan, snatched the child and fled in a vehicle driven by Jaxon's mother, Summer Smith. Police spokesperson Kim Kapp said the reason police waited a week to notify the media was because detectives were trying to work with family and friends to locate Jaxon but were unable to and needed more help.

    From the local newspaper:

    http://www.columbian.com/news/2013/d...d-5-month-old/

    I've emailed Emily at the Columbian to see if she can find out from Vancouver PD why no Amber Alert has been issued. From what I can see, it seems to fit the criteria.

    ETA: I heard back from Emily Gillespie and she has not heard back from her contact at VPD yet this morning. But she said it was an excellent question and she will ask the contact person when she hears from them.

    This article gives a little more info about how Fuller assisted them...

    "That night, Fuller rented a room for the family at Howard Johnson Inn and Suites, 9201 N.E. Vancouver Mall Drive, after Smith told him CPS had tried to take Jaxon, court records say. Fuller said he visited the room several times and saw them smoking methamphetamine,"
    Also says he helped get rid of their truck to throw LE off the trail even more.

    http://www.columbian.com/news/2013/d...ys-kidnapping/

    Makes me furious. Why was he helping them run with this poor baby just so they could keep exposing him to their meth lifestyle? And I feel so bad for those social workers trying to do their jobs and getting assaulted. What a mess.
    A run-away may leave on purpose, but that doesn't mean that they are able to get back home.... Never stop searching.

    Police find missing infant and mother, but father still at large

    Police arrested a Vancouver woman they say absconded with her 5-month-old son who had been in protective custody, but the boy's father is still at large.

    Summer Smith, 36, was arrested on outstanding warrants after police tracked her down at a home on W. 19th St. in Vancouver.

    Her son, Jaxon Smith, was placed back into custody by child protective services.

    I always try to give the benefit of the doubt. Here at first I saw it and I was like OK he freaked out and ran because he was losing his son. Then I noticed it was from CPS and he assaulted the poor woman. It just gets scarier and sicker from there. Meth around an infant that could make him so sick or worse. According to the article at the bottom there were seven addition arrests of people they happen to come across while searching for this couple that were wanted. They're surrounded by criminals. This situation could of gotten so much worse and it's such a blessing this baby was found safe.

    I brought a child into this dark world because it needed the light that only a child can bring.

    So glad that Jaxon has been found and is now safe and away from his meth-infested parents. I pray that someday they will clean up their lives. In the meantime I wish the best for little Jaxon.
