    I would think she has switched the plates on the Sequoia by now.

    or managed to switch vehicles entirely! Pray & send good energy to the brothers, may they stick together & find a way out, a way to call one of their Dads or the up-thread grandparents!

    There have been other cases on this site where a parent abducting their own child is seen by police as a civil matter over custody, not a child abduction, even when they are in contempt of a court custody order.
    As an example, Cash Gernon and his twin were successfully hidden from his custodial mother by his father's girlfriend. The police would not help the mother find her children and told her it was a civil matter and directed her to file a contempt order with the court. Unfortunately, that takes time, especially during covid.
    And it may not have done any good anyway if police continue to refuse to enforce child custody orders.

    At this point, this is only being treated as a missing persons case, as far as I can see.

    US-72 going east DOES go to Tennessee, but that's CrimeOnline for ya.

    Her cell must have turned on for a time for LE to suggest this location and direction of travel. Imo.

    This is a song I wrote right after I lost access to Garrett. Might not be that relevant to the current situation other than proof of my sincerity. I talked with a friend of mine who is a Ohio state highway patrolman. He knew her and believes she is on the run as well.

    I am so sorry, Str3tch1982. You were put into an impossible situation. And for Tempe police to call and tell you to leave her alone, wow. Seems like Tempe police like to always believe the woman’s side without thinking there might be more to it.

    I can't imagine what you're going through, now and over the years. Thanks for sharing with us, that takes a lot.

    I obviously don't know your ex, but I'm holding out hope that, regardless of how mentally unstable she may be, that she's still capable of thinking about her sons and ensuring that nothing truly bad happens to them. If she's never directly or indirectly harmed them before, maybe she'll avoid that now too.

    She seems to have done quite a bit of parental alienation which cannot be healthy for those two boys. They need their mom and their dad. This is not to say that she will actively hurt the boys now but then again who knows what else she will do if desperate enough. I really hope LE finds them soon.

    Garrett is very thin in the picture dated 7/24/20 and appears to be wearing the same shirt in the other picture dated 4/23/21. Was either child experiencing health issues?
    Was Amy raised in a “cult religion”?
    I’m hoping someone sees them and provides a clue to bring them to safety.

    Thank you for sharing with us, it sounds like you have been through so much.
    I can hear the heartbreak in your song.

    Garrett is thin because he’s like me body wise. I’m 6’9’’ tall and 207 lbs. I looked malnourished until my 30’s.

    I know that in some states (in the divorce statutes) that it is illegal to take a child out of state without the permission of the other parent. I am not sure what the FBI's litmus test is for Interstate Transport of A Child for Illegal Purposes.

    Hope the boys are safe and found soon !
    It's never o.k. to kidnap your child from their other parent. :(
