Kids are Safe!


On April 10 we learned from a person which had been taken into custody that his/her 2 young children were given to a complete stranger in a north east Missouri county about 2 days prior.  The parent told us they had given their kids to a person referred by a good friend, (such a good friend that was only known by a first name) that lived in a white colored house in possibly one of several towns in 3 different counties in north and north east Missouri.

We notified the Child Abuse Hotline, Division of Family Services, and sheriffs in Grundy County, Sullivan County, and Schuyler County of the situation.  Only through significant and cooperative efforts and several hours of investigation were we able to learn the children were safe and with their grandparents in Oklahoma!

It is apparent that controlled substance(s) were involved with the reporting parent.  The county with jurisdiction and DFS are continuing with the investigation.

One of many good reasons to stay drug free!
