    Cops Search Area Near Swamp For Missing Boy

    Patrick Alford apparently walked away from his foster mother on Friday night in Brooklyn and he hasn't been seen since. Police initially thought he may have gone off to find his foster mother, but late Monday night darker possibilities came to the forefront as police began a large-scale search in the vicinity of a nearby swamp.

    [snip]

    The foster mother's apartment is at the end of the hall and the trash compactor -- or at least the chute to it -- is something any New Yorker who's been in a hi-rise would recognize. The trash goes in and heads on down to the basement. The woman said she headed back to her apartment and noticed the boy was no longer with her when she got there. There is a door to a stairwell nearby, but the neighbors think the whole thing is very odd.

    Where Is He? Leads For Missing NYC Boy Go Cold

    Helicopters in the air and police dogs on the ground continued the frantic search Tuesday for a missing 7-year-old Brooklyn boy. Patrick Alford was last seen taking out the trash at his foster home over the weekend, and police have now expanded their attempts to find him.

    Just by the force of their sheer numbers cop after cop fanning out on the street, helicopters scanning rooftops, police vehicles of every size left and right, and a command post set up on the block the NYPD is making it very clear that they are going all out to find Alford.

    The scent does not mean all that much if the kid had been there before. If this man had nothing to do with the family then why are the dogs picking up a scent?

    I'm glad LE has an all-out search for Patrick, but I wish I knew if it was the reporters interpretation of foster mom's story or she's giving different versions....becaaaauuuuse -

    Now there's 3 different stories - 1) he slipped away when her back was turned 2) she left him while she went to take a phone call and now 3) she just happened to notice he wasn't with her....AFTER she reportedly said he'd been trying to run away for the past 3 weeks.

    It's getting harder to support her...I wish we knew - bad reporting or truly inconsistent stories!!!

    Not to mention the neighbors think something's "odd".
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    There has been tons of bad reporting lately. I agree.

    If my information is correct (meaning not everyone's information is online, correct, or possibly not the same person)

    The man identified in the news item lives in the Mariner's Harbor section of SI (northwest area), which is where the police were searching the other night.

    The mother lives in New Brighton which is on the northeast side of the island.

    Prayers they find this little guy safe...We shouldn't have to read about another little one tossed away like trash...for me, it's getting harder to have hope for him-- knowing how mean & evil people are, and especially after learning about Aveion today.

    Why are they giving this guy's name but not foster mom's ? She's part of the investigation also.

    Why is this story getting so little coverage in the media? Someone has seen this boy! Praying for Patrick tonight.

    It's another cold, rainy/snowy, windy night in NY. 5 full days, going into the 6th night. Praying that Patrick is somewhere warm and safe.

    I hate when stories change right away. Prayers, love for the angel boy.
    If Marc could still smile big, so can I.

    Listen close to the end of the video. The theory...

    Helicopters in the air and police dogs on the ground continued the frantic search Tuesday for a missing 7-year-old Brooklyn boy. Patrick Alford was last seen taking out the trash at his foster home over the weekend, and police have now expanded their attempts to find him.

    The child has been missing since Friday night, when police say he had threatened to run from the foster home where he had been placed three weeks ago because he wanted to be with his biological mother. That woman, 23-year-old Jennifer Rodriguez, lives on Staten Island.

    On Monday night, police K-9 dogs picked up a scent, but that lead went cold.

    I listened to the theory and yes, it is possible the foster mother in some way assisted this escapade. Having said that, if she was a professional foster mother, meaning she has been taking kids in for 20 years without incident (at least according to the news accounts) I find it unlikely she would jeopardize her cash pipeline for this one child.

    The theory is that the answers lie on Staten Island, that implies that LE thinks his bio-family holds the answers here. That was my take on it.
