    MN - Barway Collins, 10, Crystal, 18 March 2015 #1

    Barway Edwin Collins

    Police looking for missing 10-year-old Crystal boy
    Authorities are searching for 10-year-old boy from Crystal who has been missing since after school on Wednesday.

    Barway Edwin Collins was last seen near his apartment building in the 5400 block of Douglas Drive North after classes Wednesday, according to the Crystal Police Department.

    Deputy Chief Mike Meehan said the department is working to find the boy, but has little to go on.

    Authorities say Barway Edwin Collins was last seen after school Wednesday, near his apartment building in the 5400 block of Douglas Drive North. He was reported missing to police around 6:30 p.m.
    “We’re worried about him,” Mike Meehan, deputy chief of the Crystal Police Department, told BringMeTheNews. “We thought he’d show up and he hasn’t.”
    Police have been looking for the boy all night, including having dogs comb the parking lot.
    “We’re covering all our bases,” Meehan said.

    Crystal Police Do Not Believe Stranger Abducted Missing 10-Year-Old Boy

    Police said they do not have information that he was abducted by a stranger and that he is with someone he knows.

    Officials also the case does not meet the criteria to issue an Amber Alert.

    A little more information plus a statement from the father. Information seems to slightly contradict the info in the above article, tho.

    I really hope this boy is safe.

    Hoping he's found safe soon.

    I wonder what time he was seen on surveillance camera? Was that right after the bus dropped him off?
    Someone must of caught the boys attention, wish that someone was also on camera.

    I really hope this seeming nonchalance is based on more than Barway looking back and looking like his attention was caught by someone he knew. I wonder if LE have seen something on surveillance that they have not shared with the family. I don't know. Family facebook accounts are eerily devoid of almost any mention of this child.

    Article also says BCA and FBI have been brought in.

    If they think that he's with someone he knows, why involve the FBI? It makes me that maybe he's being held by the person he is with. I'm not sure however.

    I haven't seen his mom mentioned in any of the articles. Does anyone know if she's living?

    It is a dad and stepmom according to Hejlena's link in post #5 above.

    So I guess his mother is in that video? They identified her as his mom.

    Certainly doesn't sound like she kidnapped him. What a mystery - prayers he is found soon, and healthy.

    I haven't seen a situation like this before. Both mom and dad look genuinely concerned and bewildered. For what reason do LE think a friend or relative would take Barway, and why in the world is this so low-key???? This is a ten year old boy who has been missing for two days now.
