    CBS news blog about the "shootout" - nothing new about Patrick's whereabouts tho.

    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.

    We are in the midst of a cold spell right now with temps only reaching highs in the 20's.

    Sadly, I have not heard Patrick mentioned on the local news or on NY1 (24hr news channel soley devoted to New York City news) in days.

    What do you think about the possibility the foster mom and the bio mom worked something out between the two of them? Bio mom knew where foster lived eventhough she apparently was not suppose to have that info coupled with fosters lame story about how he vanished. There could have been some arrangement made - money exchanged for foster to let bio take her son back. A little far-fetched, I know, but stranger things have happened.

    Anything is possible. I still think the foster mother would not want to jeopardize a cash flow she has had for 20 years to reunite one child with his biological mother. I doubt the bio mom would have been able to pony up any significant sum to bribe the foster mom.

    Missing Boy's Mom Kept In Jail, Called A Liar And An Addict

    The mother of a 7-year-old who disappeared from a foster home in Brooklyn more than a week ago remains behind bars because authorities believe she knows where her son is. Staten Island resident Jennifer Rodriguez—who according to the Post was described by a social worker yesterday as a drug-addicted habitual liar—is being held on contempt charges as authorities continue to look her son, Patrick Alford, who went missing on Jan. 22.

    Rodriguez lost custody of her child after being arrested for theft. She has claimed the boy is staying with her aunt, though the relative denied it. Police have used helicopters and police dogs to search the neighborhood and swamps near the East New York foster home where Alford was last seen, but they haven't found any sign of the child.

    She passed a polygraph, and was released but ACS STILL believes she had a role in his disappearance.

    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/ny_c...r_lie_det.html

    AND even though she passed a poly & LE doesn't think she's involved the family court judge STILL wants her to produce him by next Tuesday's hearing.....

    Judge Terrance McElrath granted Jennifer Rodriguez, 23, release from Rikers Island today during a hearing in Brooklyn Family Court on two conditions: She entirely cooperate with the Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) and cops, and she use all of her resources to produce the boy by next Tuesday’s hearing.

    http://www.silive.com/northshore/ind...missing_b.html

    This is what drives me nuts about Family Court & ACS, they're completely lacking in common sense, yet they're entrusted with other people's children.

    Whoa.. The child has been in their care 3 weeks and they know mom well enough to say she's a drug addicted, habitual liar ?
    And.. isn't this social worker supposed to be 'helping' families and not slandering them in the media.

    It’s believed that the seven-year-old boy who disappeared after he ran away from his foster parents at Spring Creek may be as far away as Baltimore or Florida -- and his biological mother may have facilitated his escape, according to police and published reports.

    Very crazy. I know polygraphs aren't 100% accurate, but wow. And I'm sure someone will be keeping a very close eye on bio-mom for a while. I wonder if we will see her re-arrested if she does not "produce" Patrick by Tuesday?

    This article IMO, isn't accurate. I havent read that the police believe his mom facilitated his escape.
    According to the article....
    On January 22, Patrick was last seen leaving the lobby of his Vandalia Avenue home at 9 p.m. after threatening to run away.

    --Does anybody know if this is true ?

    Has there ever been another case where a parent of a missing child was jailed for contempt for not producing the child?

    Go figure.
    Maybe drug addicts with incredibly high IQ's could accomplish this ?
    Is it easier for a strung out addict to pass a polygraph too ?

    I'm gonna stand back from this one a bit to see how things play out here. I admit I am very confused It has always been reported that LE does not think the biomom is involved in Patrick's disappearance. The the judge throws her in jail. Then the social worker calls her names. (This one throws me. I wonder if this social worker knows the mom personally? Maybe they had a falling out over something on a personal level? It is very rare that a social worker will go to such lengths against a parent, in my experience.) Then, biomom passes a poly and the judge lets her out with a warning to produce the child.

    And now some of the recent articles are saying that LE does think biomom is involved UGGGGHHHGHGHGHH

    What a mess. Poor Patrick. Please, please, please find him and bring him home. It is cold out there!

    And I still have suspicions about the foster mom and the story she gave.

    Thanks -- that's a very interesting case! From the link:

    Judicial experts agree that contempt is one of the courts' most powerful and vital weapons. It is an essential means of enforcing a judge's rulings and coercing testimony from recalcitrant witnesses. Civil contempt is used to compel future behavior, while criminal contempt is used to punish past conduct.
    I just don't see how she could have taken Patrick and hid him somewhere. And, I don't understand why she's in jail for contempt with no proof to support that she actually took him.

    It's not the police.
    My understanding is that the police don't believe the mom is involved.
    IMO, they probably helped mom get out by giving her the poly.

    Family court and state social worker's are the ones who say mom is involved.
    A FAMILY COURT JUDGE is ordering her to produce Patrick, in spite of the police, who don't think she's involved. The Family Court Judge knows that she passed a polygraph test and it was concluded that she didn't know where Patrick was. In spite of the facts, he's threatening to put her in jail.

    They want her to produce him, because it looks very bad that they lost him.
    Please pay attention to how they're able to violate a person's rights with NO consequence. Where is the due process when she's arrested without being charged with a crime and held without a trial.
    The only reason she's out now is because the judge knows he's being watched.

    well the aclu should be all over this (if they arent too busy protecting pedophile and child murderer's rights) cause that judge needs more then zilch to keep her locked up.

    Patrick's case has recently reminded me a lot of Damaris Herrera-Lopez from Arizona. She supposedly "took off running" after an argument, where I think her brother grabbed her, and gave her to mom. Her mother was not jailed, as they still can't find her, but Damaris's brother was jailed for helping mom snatch her.

    The difference here? They KNOW that mom had something to do with it.

    There's a big difference in this case. In this case they know mom took the child and mom admits to taking the child. She's in contempt because she's hid her child after the court ordered visitation with the dad who she claims is molesting her.
    The case you referred to is about custodial interference, not a child who disappeared while in the care of someone else care and could have been killed by a member of the foster family or kidnapped by a sex predator.

    If anyone should have to produce him, it should be the one who lost him.

    Yep, they're too busy with NAMBLA. Family Court judge's routinely violate the right's of citizens. Google CPS or Family Court corruption to get the full picture.
    They hide behind "the best interests of the child" mantra, even though more children are hurt while under their watch than those that are left with their parents.

    Shhh. The state picked that home and the state can't be wrong. It irks me that most of the original articles start with ' foster child threatens to run away, then disappears.'
    Why not.. 'foster child goes missing on trip to dump trash with foster mom' ?
    Foster mom said she went to answer phone and he was gone, no wait she turned around and he disappeared ? What's the other story?
