    FBI trains Kansas agencies in missing, abducted child cases

    The FBI is helping to make sure law enforcement agencies across the state know how to handle cases of missing and abducted children.

    [...]

    While this volunteer group searches for Lucas, the FBI is training 35 law enforcement agencies from across Kansas.

    "This started a couple years ago, it is now expanding across the country, I will tell you this region, Kansas in general is ahead of the curve," said Special Agent Darrin Jones with the FBI Kansas City office.

    They are using the same training the FBI's team uses when responding to child abductions.

    [...]

    The training is not just in the classroom, as they'll be holding an exercise in El Dorado on Thursday.

    5-year-old Lucas Hernandez has been missing for nearly 6 weeks

    WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -
    Lucas Hernandez. He's a 5-year-old boy who was reported missing in mid-February and there's been no sign of him.

    “We’ve said it. He is Wichita’s son," recent search organizer Julie LaForce said. "He’s our son as well. We may not be the immediate family but he is our boy and we’re gonna bring him home.”

    That was nearly two weeks ago, but the volunteers haven't given up.

    ...

    "It is still an active investigation," Wichita Police Officer Charley Davidson said Friday morning. "We are still asking for any information from our community."

    Kansans turn on 'Lights for Lucas', encourage others to remember missing boy

    A group of people in Kansas are installing green porch lights to spread awareness about missing Lucas Hernandez.

    [...]

    "I would be devastated. I wouldn't know what to do with myself if that was my baby," said Chrissy Morales. "This little boy has stolen so many hearts. It's amazing how much support and love this little boy has."

    Morales, like many other Kansans, is now hoping to shine a light on that love.

    "The green light on my side porch is for him. That supports him," Morales said. "Green, I am hearing is his favorite color."

    Morales said she's received quite a bit of feedback on the green lights.

    "I've had several people ask where did you get those awesome lights at because they're so bright," she said.

    Why a dad wanted a judge to keep two sons away from stepmom of missing Lucas

    Twelve days before Emily Glass reported that her 5-year-old stepson — Lucas Hernandez — was missing, the father of her own young sons reported a safety concern to police after the boys visited her home.

    On Feb. 5, the day after one of his two sons returned from visiting Glass and had red marks with visible fingerprints on his chest, the boys’ father filed a report with police “for the safety and welfare of the children,” a court document says.

    According to the document — an affidavit from the father — Glass blamed the red marks on her boyfriend, Jonathan Hernandez, who is Lucas’ father.

    [...]

    The Eagle obtained the court documents detailing the father’s concerns about Glass on Thursday. Her attorney couldn't be reached for comment.

    According to the affidavit filed by her sons' father, Glass was allowed to have her sons for two and half hours every Wednesday and for seven hours every other Sunday.

    She did not complete a court-ordered class on “parenting in a home with anger/violence nor a co-parenting class,” the affidavit says.

    The father says in the affidavit that Hernandez, identified as Glass’ boyfriend, “got physical with our youngest son” on Sunday, Feb. 4. The injured boy is about 6 years old, according to the birth year listed for him in the court document.

    “The children reported the incident to me as soon as I picked them up after parenting time,” the father said in the affidavit. He took photos of the injury. “And although it was 4-5 hours later, there were still red marks on (the boy’s) chest with visible fingerprints. His chest was still red the next day.”

    Hernandez couldn’t be reached for comment. Sedgwick County District Court records don’t show any charge against Hernandez related to those allegations.

    The father said in the affidavit that Glass told him “that her boyfriend (Jonathan Hernandez) said that the mark was ‘an accident’ and that she kicked him out after it occurred.”

    “She then became angry, blamed the children’s behavior and hung up on me.”

    [...]

    On Feb. 17 — 12 days after the father made the report to police — he saw on the news that Glass had reported Lucas missing while he had been in her care, the affidavit says. Glass told police that she took a nap that day and that when she woke up, Lucas was gone. Relatives have said that Lucas’ father, Hernandez, often worked out of town.

    When the father of her sons called her that day, she told him that police with dogs were on the way to look for Lucas, and she agreed to reschedule her parenting time that had been set for the next day, the affidavit says.

    [...]

    He said he worried that her “situation could be traumatic for the boys to deal with. I have worked to shelter them so that they do not know their mother is in jail nor the full circumstances surrounding it. … I don’t know what (her) living arrangements will be when she is released from jail … .”

    Philip Klein, president of Klein Investigations and Consulting, on Tuesday confirmed that his hiring is dependent on $25,000 being raised to pay him. That amount is necessary to cover transportation and lodging costs for a team of investigators, Klein said. He said he would cover separate investigative costs. His business is in Nederland, in southeast Texas.

    Klein said he got a call last Wednesday from a friend of Lucas’ family. If the money is raised and he is hired, he said, “I made it very clear: I am not coming for any family member. I’m coming in to look for Lucas.”

    [...]

    Wichita police did not immediately comment Tuesday on the plan to hire a private investigator. More than 100 officers and FBI agents have investigated the child's disappearance.

    Klein said he has been featured on the TV show "Dateline" and that Lucas’ case has drawn national and international attention. He has spent about 15 hours looking into the case so far, he said.


    What could his team bring to an investigation that Wichita police and the FBI have not?

    “That’s a great question,” Klein responded. He said he could assemble a team of specialists with search and interview skills who would bring “a new, fresh set of eyes,” who could uncover something possibly missed by police detectives.

    If he gets hired, he said, “I represent little Lucas. I’m going to go find that boy if we can.”

    Horrific new details emerge in court document about missing 5-year-old Lucas Hernandez

    The bruises on Lucas Hernandez kept showing up. Relatives saw them. The school nurse counted nine of them and said it looked like he had been in a fight. His injuries were reported to the state — twice.

    A court document filed by a prosecutor and viewed by The Eagle sheds light on what happened to 5-year-old Lucas before he disappeared from his Wichita home almost two months ago. It gives the widest, most detailed view so far of the investigation of his disappearance. The mystery of the missing boy has transfixed thousands of people. Various social media groups named after Lucas and devoted to finding him have sprung up. Some are sharing pictures of the bruising.

    In seven single-spaced pages, the child-in-need-of-care petition describes a dysfunctional and violent household.

    It says Emily Glass, Lucas' 26-year-old stepmother, has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, has difficulty controlling her anger and has experimented with methamphetamine and heroin.

    Horrific new details emerge in court document about missing 5-year-old Lucas Hernandez

    Glass, the report says, was thought to be targeting Lucas due to her anger with the boy's father. The pre-kindergartner had bruises most often after Glass and the father fought, the state's child protection agency was told.
    The day before Lucas was reported missing, a witness saw a young boy standing at the front door of the home. Glass later admitted to leaving the 5-year-old home alone that day while she went to eat at Olive Garden.
    Those details are part of a Sedgwick County juvenile court document that provides the most complete account of abuse that Lucas allegedly suffered.

    Green ribbons laced the trees surrounding the Fifth Judicial District Courthouse in Carlsbad Sunday afternoon.

    The ribbons were for 5-year-old Lucas Hernandez, of Wichita, Kansas, who was reported missing Feb. 17, 2018.

    Community members and Lucas' extended family in Carlsbad held a vigil to keep the boy's name in the limelight.

    "I think it's awesome that everybody can get together and rally for my grandson," said Cyndi Norman, of Carlsbad. "Any opportunity that we can get him and his face out there for anybody across the nation that could possibly see him and help us get him home is greatly appreciated."

    The people at the courthouse were from several groups that have been searching for Lucas and have established Facebook pages to gather information. They were carrying signs that read "Find Lucas" and "Justice for Lucas," and they wore green ribbons to recognize his favorite color. Brooklyn Ledbetter said people want answers and "we're going to be that little boy's voice for Wichita." Melissa Ortiz said the groups want to avoid speculation and they want people to keep searching their farms and properties to find Lucas.

    It's been 2 months since Lucas Hernandez was reported missing

    WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -
    Lucas Hernandez. He's a 5-year-old Wichita boy who was reported missing two months ago and there's been no sign of him.

    A Sedgwick County juvenile court document indicates the state of Kansas was told at least twice that Lucas was being abused. The document includes detailed accounts from people who said they saw the boy with bruises, black eyes and cuts at various times in the year before he disappeared

    Search group not giving up on finding Lucas Hernandez

    WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -
    Julie La Force has spent every day of the last two months wondering where Lucas Hernandez could be.
