    If the father has the money in bank accounts under false names, or a large amount of it in cash, he may be able to live in a remote area and also live off the land as well, so he won't have to get a job to work? He was reading up on survivalist books, probably to educate himself how to live off the land. He could be in a one horse town if that somewhere very isolated where he wouldn't be recognized, also remaining away from the eye of the public. Maybe a cabin somewhere.

    I forgot about all that money.

    Here's the thing though. Therapies like that aren't offered in small towns, generally. How about if we find out what specific therapy he was interested in and then contact those places w/the NCMEC info. I mean, if that's what this was really about, I don't think it's one of those therapies you do at home unless you've been trained.

    Maybe we could all take a State or two and see what we could find? (Once we find out what specific therapy he was looking at.)

    Then why did he kidnap all three children and not just the one with health concerns? ETA: nevermind ... I didn't read far enough in the thread ... off to read more on this case.

    This article is extremely detailed giving info on the divorce and custody battle. Interesting that he had PRIMARY custody and the mother had visitation only... especially after the psychological evaluations.

    One of the most perplexing questions is why Matusiewicz would take off, depriving the children of contact with their mother.

    Court papers reveal a possible motive, that he thought Belford was an unfit mother with mental problems. A court-ordered psychologist rejected that notion.

    That same psychologist, however, said Matusiewicz was unstable, according to Family Court Judge Mark B. Buckworth's custody order in February 2007.

    Buckworth wrote that Matusiewicz was "at risk of losing touch with reality."

    Do you think he might try abroad for the therapy? He has to know that his face and the children's have been on tv and everywhere. I wonder if he has taken any steps to disguise the children, dye their hair or something.
    If he is still in the states he may be having someone watch the 2 while he brings the one daughter for therapy. (appearing as a dad with one child instead of 3 daughters).. just some ideas to toss out there.

    On Greta last night - the local Barney Fife, I mean detective, said there had been no activity on the passports - but left open the possibility of a passport in another name.

    I missed a minute of it, but then he said "well he didn't even tell me he was moving" referring to the grandfather, so apparently (I'm assuming here) he has gone to be with his wife, son and three daughters now.

    These children have been found and the father and his mother arrested.
    OH and this SOB told his children their mother committed suicide. Hope he NEVER gets to see these girls again.

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,509273,00.html

    "David T. Matusiewicz, an optometrist, was arrested Friday morning while dropping his 6-year-old daughter off at a school in a village near Managua, Nicaragua, the girls' mother Christine Belford told the newspaper.

    A short while later Matusiewicz's mother Lenore was arrested at her home, where police found the two other children — Leigh, 6, and Karen, 3."
    Only my opinion, no one else need agree.

    IA Jane... I really hope the autistic child has not digressed deeply. And thanks for the other article. Serious problems but I'm pleased to see the arrest of his mother too. I hope that sends a message to others out there 'harboring' children that are kidnapped from the custodial parents.
    Only my opinion, no one else need agree.

    I would be willing to BET that he is an optometrist somewhere. I have worked in the field of optometry for 20 plus years and the money is good. It is one of those professions that once you get in, it is hard to get out of. Good money and the work is not at all hard. Bet when they find him, he will have either his own business or work as a doctor with another office.
