    So he’s using the story that a 5 year old ran away and is hiding so he doesn’t get in trouble?? And he’s somewhere he can see the news report and just decide to come home? Something STINKS to high heaven here.

    This sounds fishy moo...sends a message to his 5 year old. Maybe to his "captors" which I don't think he has to look very far...like the mirror?? Again moo

    So the father has death on his mind. Hmmm. It's not an uncommon expression, but in the circumstances, JMO looks like a tell.

    Can't discuss it. Either way this scenario occurs way too often. They get calls about children,and children wind up dead, or close to it. Because excuses,excuses. Sadly none if the excuses help the children.
    MOO

    Seriously, it's asinine. "I hear you, officers. I know you'd like me to come inside and answer some questions so we can locate my missing child but I can't! C'mon, guys, I've got no cell phone and I've gotta take care of a few things! (Like calling friends to ask them to destroy potential evidence for me)" Obviously a parent with his priorities in order.

    I can't believe he cares more about the phone than his own son...

    "... Please come home. You're not in trouble..." (Freund Sr.)
    What an odd message.

    Why would this child think he was in trouble ?
    Had they disciplined him ?

    And the description of what he was last wearing sounds like day clothing, including that AJ was wearing shoes.
    Did he normally wear shoes to bed ?
    I'm getting some vibes of Haleigh Cummings.

    The dad of a missing Crystal Lake boy had a message for his 5-year-old son, who hasn't been seen since Wednesday evening.

    "Andrew, please come home," he said. "You are not in trouble."

    Andrew Freund Sr. was seen walking the streets near his northwest suburban home as the search for the missing boy continued for a second day.

    "AJ please come home," he said. "We love you."



    Hmmmm.....

    Ita.
    Does the father think AJ might be hanging out where he can see a news report... and decide if he should head home ?
    He's only 5 years old ; you just don't tell a child that age to 'come home'.
    You get your face in the cameras, pleading for any help-- and you go out and do not stop looking for him !

    Maybe something happened the night before, and the boy ran away in fear?

    CBS Chicago video of Father being questioned by media / police outside the home. I’m reserving judgements until more information becomes available. (Yes, I know how it looks)

    He told police he needed to go get a cell phone. Couldn't he send someone to do that errand while he went to the police station?

    I also wondered about that scenario.

    But with the dogs they had at the residence, and LE saying they couldn't locate a scent outside the house....

    Who knows the situation? Perhaps he lost or broke his phone and needs to deal with some contract issue at source of provider. Expecting people to be rational or logical under these circumstances is an ideal. He’s clearly frazzled. Wonder if he’s sleep deprived? (Is he drinking an energy drink?)

    I thought he said in the video it was at the police station. He was going to "get new" phone, in the video.

    The police already stated he didn't take off on his own.
