    I just read this in my local online newspaper and was about to start a thread. My news story update about 10 pm said that an Amber alert was denied. I'm glad if they went ahead, because the man's ex wife feels the kids could be in danger. The family reportedly only knew this man for five months.

    This is confusing because he drops off his own child and kidnaps the 3 other children? Why would he do this? How was he connected to them? Was this some kind of neighborhood trip out of the "goodness" of his own heart?

    Pictures of children can be seen at this link with update and description of the 41 year old male they were last seen with... The state refuses to issue a State Wide Amber Alert becaue they do not meet the criteria since they were not taken against their will eventhough they have not been returned or heard from. Their parents expected them on Sunday 10/26/2008 around 5:00.

    According to the news the family has known the man for 5 months an he planned a trip and invited the children to go. The local news also said that his ex-wife told the authorities that he is not suppose to be around young girls however there has been NO report of him being a sex offender...so not sure about what the story is there...

    Well - I'm glad they finally issued the Amber Alert. They have to many senseless rules on issuing these alerts - the guy could be half way to Hong Kong by now!

    I hope he is found soon and I hope the alert goes out all the way to Louisiana!

    Prayers for these children, may the come home soon!

    Oh man this sounds really bad to me.
    And just one look at him gave me a really icky feeling.
    I have this thought in my mind that i'm afraid to type here...
    but to me, it doesn't sound good that he dropped his own child off safely and took off w/ the other kids.
    And the fact that his ex wife said he's not supposed to be w/ girls...she probably knows something that wasn't reported.
    (I have personal experience there ....and i would be able to say that about someone i know that was never reported...but yeah if i EVER found out he took off w/ some young girl or girls....you bet i would be calling the police!)
    It scares me for the boy too though.
    3 kids is alot of kids to take care of and hide out with....
    i don't really want to type what i'm thinking...
    but i'm sure you guys are too....
    i hope they're found really really soon.....
    please God...
    we need some good news......
    I sat there for the longest time
    after you were gone....
    thinking about all things we said.....
    and all the things we didn't say...
    I wonder if you misunderstood,
    cause I'm no good when it comes to talking....
    And I'm sorry,I didn't know the words.......
    to make you stay.

    IDABEL, Okla. — Police say two of three children missing from Lubbock have been found alive in Oklahoma.
    Capt. Greg Stevens said 14-year-old Jasmine Nichole Bazan and 9-year-old Angel Contreras were found around 11:30 p.m. Monday near Idabel, Oklahoma after Angel called his father in Lubbock.
    The search continues for 11-year-old Lashawnda Annice Theriac, Angel's sibling. She is believed to be in the company of 41-year-old Kenneth Wilcox.
    Stevens told The Associated Press Tuesday that the children are in the custody of the McCurtain County, Oklahoma Sheriff's Office.
    He said authorities are searching for Wilcox who left Lubbock Saturday with plans to take the children and his son to Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington. The children hadn't been heard from since Saturday.

    Children found

    Amber Alert Update: Two Missing Kids Located

    Posted: Oct 28, 2008 12:18 AM CDT




    According to Lubbock Police, just before midnight Monday, two missing Lubbock children have been safely located in McCurtain County, Oklahoma, southeast of Oklahoma City. A third missing child has also been located but is still with a man who is wanted for questioning in the case.

    LaShawnda Theriac, 14, and Angel Contreras, 9, are in the custody of the McCurtain County Oklahoma Sheriff's Office. Police tell NewsChannel 11 that Jasmine Bazan, 11, has been located inside a Wal-Mart in Idabel, Oklahoma. Police in that town are trying to safely recover the child from 41-year-old Kenneth Wilcox. Police say he initially had permission to be with the children but then disappeared and Lubbock Police issued a local Amber Alert late Monday.

    Oh my Gosh!!!! Those poor kids. First, I am soooo glad they are safe. It sounds as if this must have been like some horror movie. Drop off the son, runaway with 3 other kids. Then drop off 2 and keep one and then get "surrounded" at the WalMart. That poor girl. Oh, I can't even imagine.

    I am so glad they are safe!
