    A very complex and sad case to say the least. I hope it's okay to post this here.
    All I can say it just read it. :)

    Oh dear.

    Released by CPS to parents in Dec. 2007. According to his parents in Nov. 2010, Thomas was sent to live with a relative in Georgia. Later, both parents still claimed that Thomas was still with a relative in Georgia which was never verified. His mother passed away in Jan 2011.
    Missing persons report filed by CPS in Nov. 2011, at least a year since Thomas was last seen.

    In Nov. 2011, CPS filed a missing child case with the Laredo Police Department. Since some considerable time had elapsed since anyone had actually seen Thomas, the investigation was extremely difficult and led to various possibilities.

    Every possible lead in this investigation has been followed up and verified. This case has led detectives across multiple jurisdictions throughout the State. The investigation has also included notification of Thomas to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children by Laredo Police.

    Not looking good for this little guy. :(

    Drug addiction can have a ripple effect on a family. Poor little kid.

    Where to even start? Is the dad still alive? I hope he's identified the supposed relative. I'm reminded of another case where the parents claimed to have sent a child away, but the child was in fact, dead. :-(

    Also, from a different article:

    Casarez claims many CPS guidelines were overlooked in this case. He began investigating after the agency took custody of Thomas and discovered several problems with the case that began in December 2010. "When I went back a year later to try to find Tomas, I discovered that none of the children had been photographed and I could not find a single recording for any of the 6 children who the agency had Temporary Managing Conservatorship of," Casarez explained.
