    FBI: Missing Seattle boy may be in San Diego


    According to the FBI, Hanson, a known drug abuser, is believed to be extremely volatile and law enforcement is gravely concerned about the child's safety. A federal arrest warrant has been issued for Hanson, charging him with violating the International Parental Kidnapping statute after the boy was supposed to be put on a flight back to his mother's in Pennsylvania but never showed up at the airport.


    The FBI says it is believed that Hanson, an experienced sailor, took off in his sailboat with his son from Shilsole Marina near Seattle around Aug. 28 and may be headed to the San Juan Islands near Vancouver, Canada.

    Authorities say he could also be headed to Mexico or possibly across the Pacific Ocean to Tahiti. There is a chance, the FBI says, the two could end up in San Diego.

    Some more info in this article: http://www.kirotv.com/news/news/poli...angered/nhLZh/

    Jeff Hanson's close friends told KIRO 7 they're afraid he's making his way to Tahiti with Billy. KIRO 7 reporter Rob Munoz spoke to a Hanson family friend who said he warned the police and FBI weeks ago that Jeff Hanson might try to take his son to Tahiti to meet a close friend of his, but said he was not taken seriously.
    If his father is a known drug abuser and "extremely volatile", why was Billy even allowed to go visit?
    Please be aware that what I type is my opinion.

    I wonder what makes dad's friends think he might be headed to Tahiti.
