    NY - Patrick Alford, 7-year-old "runaway", Brooklyn, 22 Jan 2010 - #1

    Brooklyn foster child Patrick Alford, 7, threatens to run away, then disappears

    A 7-year-old Brooklyn foster child who threatened to run away to his biological mother disappeared Friday night when he left to take out the trash, police and family said.

    Patrick Alford walked through the lobby of his Spring Creek Development home in East New York at about 9 p.m. with his foster mother to take a bag of garbage to a trash compactor, cops and family said.

    [snip]

    The young boy had just moved in with his foster family three weeks ago, and has attempted to flee to find his mother before, the family said.

    ACS, NYPD Seek Missing Brooklyn Boy

    The Adminstration for Children's Services worked with police Saturday to try to locate a missing Brooklyn child.

    Patrick Alford, aged seven, was last seen Friday evening leaving the lobby of the Spring Creek Development in the Starrett City section of Brooklyn, where he lives with a foster family.

    Alford's biological family says the boy was placed there by ACS officials when he was taken away from his mother. They also say a caseworker informed them that the boy was missing from his foster home.

    ACS officials would not go into detail on Saturday about how the boy disappeared or why the child was removed from his original home.

    Classified as Endangered Missing, NOT Endangered Runaway. GOOD!

    "Patrick was last seen on January 22, 2010 and was last known to be in or near Brooklyn, NY. He was last seen wearing a red t-shirt, blue jeans, blue and black Jordan sneakers. Patrick has a scar on his left eyelid."

    oh dear -- the streets are not safe for 7 y/o's....I hope they find him safe any minute now.
    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.

    I look at his sparkling eyes and big smile and I want to wrap my arms around him to protect him from all his fears,hurt, confusion. May Patrick be safe and found soon.

    I'd like to know why he was taken.

    According to this article.... He has a thin build and is in good physical and mental health.
    Doesn't seem to fit the description of an abused child to me.

    It's really hard to tell from looks alone. My friends have one current and one former foster child. The current child came to them as a chubby, giggly baby... and she had cocaine in her system and had been left in the care of her under-3 sister. The former foster child was a cute, healthy 4 year old boy... his mom left him in the care of a man who murdered his baby brother (actually a story that was discussed on this site at one time). You just never know what these kids have been through. And through it all, they sometimes still have quite an allegiance to their parents.

    What worries me most is that we didn't hear anything about this yesterday. The media didn't have anything out about it until nearly 24-hours later. This is a SEVEN YEAR OLD!

    Yes, this is very disturbing in the least.
    And Patrick has only been with that foster family for 3 weeks (if I read correctly)--not avery long time to adjust for a little one.
    He sounds like he really misses/wants to see/ be with his mommy--very natural, imo.
    The poor little guy must be soupset and his whole world has been turned around.
    Heartbreaking--and I fear for his safety.
    Way too long a time to get info out in the media!!!


    Hoping, hoping, hoping for some good news soon that Patrick has been found safe.

    Maybe the state didn't want it announced that he disappeared on their watch ?
    I was surprised to learn from the owner of a group home that 4 foster kids committed suicide last year in my state alone. There was NO news coverage.

    Am I understanding correctly that this little boy was put in foster care 2 weeks ago ?

    I confess that the following is my own biased opinion.
    They're the government, they don't like these things out in the open.
    The public might start questioning what they're doing with our tax $$.
