  15. Strange such a broad spand of time that he may have been missing- 10 hours is a long range of time for not knowing where your child is.

  16. Terry Jr needs to be found and returned to his Father. This would have never happened if he was with his father

  17. His been found...sadly,,, His gone...RIP. He was in the backyard......

    Poetic Journal

    Today I was created
    Today my life began
    By the union of two people
    A woman and a man
    They call themselves my parents
    I'll be their little boy
    Bringing them much happiness
    To them I'll be a joy

    I'll grow from a baby to a toddler
    Learning to walk and run
    Inquisitive in nature
    Having lots of fun
    I'll have cuts and scratches
    And band aids quite a few
    Nothing a kiss from mom won't cure
    Something mother's usually do

    They'll take lots of pictures of me
    My smile will touch their heart
    But then there will come a day you see
    When we will have to part
    My picture will be posted everywhere
    For all the world to see
    Everyone will be searching
    In hopes of finding me

    Then when they least expect it
    They'll find me in a shallow grave
    Many will shed rivers of tears for me
    Others will rant and rave
    But I'll be at peace everlasting
    No more sadness, no more tears
    Never again to be all alone
    Like I was during my eleven years
