Missing boy may be in center of child custody dispute

Missouri parents surely do their best to make sure the needs of their children are met. Sometimes, whether due to the poor choices of a parent, or circumstances beyond a parent's control, child protective authorities may feel some action is warranted to protect a child. While this may be a difficult situation for a family to face, parents should be aware that child custody is a legal matter, and if they do not comply, they may face serious consequences. 

Recently, the Missouri Division of Children's Services looked into the home life of a 13-year-old boy. Though it was not disclosed what concerns initiated the investigation, it was determined that the state would take custody of the boy. When social workers returned to the home to take custody of him, they discovered he was missing. 

Authorities are now reaching out to the community for help locating the child, and they advise that he may be in danger. They have been unable to contact the boy and fear he has been kidnapped or hidden by family members. As days pass, authorities grow more worried and have so far disclosed no leads they may have to his whereabouts or condition. 

Matters of child custody must be handled by the court. A parent or family member interested in the establishment, modification or enforcement of a child custody order may want to contact a reliable attorney. An attorney can educate a client about the legal process and stand by one's side as he or she attempts to sort a custody matter while remaining in compliance with any applicable laws.
