    I can send online, and through my email, if that's okay.

    I will be posting flyers around here. Even though I'm not in any of those cities/states, we get a lot of "through" traffic and out-of-staters around here so it can't hurt. The more people to see that sweet little face the better. You never know where he could be.

    I remember seeing someone putting together a list of good places to post flyers and thought that would be a good idea to have in here too. What kind of businesses would be good to post the flyers at? Post office, grocery store, Wal Mart, Babies R Us, etc?

    For San Antonio:

    MissingGabe thinks Eliz may have taken Gabe to a doctor, so clinics, hospitals, doctors offices, urgent care clinics, clinics at CVS etc.

    Also, pharmacies near the hotel where she could have gotten a prescription or over the counter medications.

    Other places: zoos, museums, recreation centers, parks, day care centers

    BeanE,

    I've received 2 PM's from people willing to post fliers in their local area's. One of whom is in a small town and thinks 25 would cover most of the area. I haven't seen lp34 on here today. What do you suggest we do to get these orders in? I know that MissingGabe said they would cover any costs. I know you are pretty busy, so I don't want to add this to your workload. But lp34 didn't email me last night so I don't have his/her email addy to send these to. Any suggestions would be great.

    ETA: A HUGE thanks to Tricia and Mods for getting this sub-forum going for Gabriel. It is going to help our efforts and other aspects tremendously.

    You can PM Hoppy and ask for it to be stickied. Great idea :)

    While looking at the flyer I noticed in one of the photos the brown envelope under Gabriels' hand. Can that be blown up and maybe some info would be on it?

    I can't wait to get to work tonight, where I can print these out.

    I work in a hotel, in a 'tourist' town.

    With my boss' permission, I will see if I can put one on the window of the hotel, and also have a stack on the counter in the lobby.

    I will take them to other local hotels/motels, the local grocery stores, convenience stores/ gas stations, library, day care centers, restaurants, police and fire stations, retail stores, fast food restaurants- and anywhere else I can think of.

    Thank you for providing these fliers!

    To those putting up fliers in the areas where we really think he may be, please take note of where you leave them, so if they are disappearing very fast from one specific area, we can turn that in as a tip. If Gabe is still in the San Antonio area, it is possible that anyone knowing the family or part of the family that has him will try to remove them.

    I need a really quick answer, I'm gedtting ready to leave, I live in Phoenix, on the border of Glendale. Surprise, Sun City, Peoria are small towns minutes away, anyway, my question is, is it ok for me to print out this flyer, well actually I already printed it, and have made copies from my printer, my question is, is this ok for me to do this. There are a few Wallmarts in these towns, I thought I could put the flyer there. I guess I just want to make sure I'm not doing something illegal, as far as printing this flyer by myself, I hope I'm making sense, thanks :)

    grammie,
    most of us believe that to be a board book under Gabe's hand.

    Gabe's family has given permission for us to use this flier and pass it around, so there are no issues on that end. I don't think it is illegal to post this around town, but some places may ask you not to, or may not want them there (unfortunately).
    THANK you from the bottom of my heart for doing this. I know it will do Gabriel's family some good to see these posters going up.

    There is nothing illegal about disseminating information about a missing child, and in this case, Tempe police have requested the help of the public.
    One way that I check, if a child's poster is on http://www.missingkids.com then they are fully cleared by law enforcement to be distributed. A different poster of Gabriel is linked there, and the one that we have been using contains the same information, updated pictures, and was created by the family, also fine for distribution, or the family would have been told not to create or release them.

    You also are not "soliciting" as that would require a plea for money or other assets. You may be breaking store rules if you don't speak to a manager about posting it, but nothing illegal.
    Any discussion here at WS of anything illegal would have been immediately shut down, so there's that to help you trust me.
    (I sounded a bit lawyerly there, sorry, I'm not one, I just have answered this question in person about a million times.) :)

    Well, I am disapointed, and surprised, I was told my Walmarts manager that all flyers have to come from their corporate office.

    What? Didn't come through? I got a confirmation email from kinkos that they were done. PLEASE tell me I'm misunderstanding.

    ETA: Sorry, I think I mis-read
