    Tavish is almost 18 now. It sounds like he could also have been kidnapped by someone wanting to raise a child, like Carlina was. Hoping that he will become suspicious about his roots, too, so he can be found safe.

    Child abducted from Grady in 1993 still missing

    Wednesday’s attempted abduction of a baby from Southern Regional Medical Center had a good ending when an alarm system and hospital employees thwarted the kidnapping, but that wasn’t the case nearly 19 years ago when 1-month-old Tavish Sutton was taken from a downtown Atlanta hospital.

    Despite a $10,000 reward and hundreds of interviews by Atlanta police and the FBI, Tavish, who was recovering from minor surgery when he was abducted from Grady Memorial Hospital’s Hughes Spalding pediatric unit on March 9, 1993, was never found.

    I wonder if whoever kidnapped him knew that he was in the care of the state, that his mother was severely mentally ill, and that parental rights were soon to be terminated anyway. If so, perhaps they felt less guilty kidnapping and raising a child who was essentially without a permanent family, than kidnapping a child that had a loving home. Purely speculation here.
