Update: Jordan's home with the family who loves him!
Please, pass this along. This is serious. This is from Kim, a fellow blogger.
God Help UsI have a very serious post.
This is Jordan. He is 6 years old. He is missing. He is our child.
Jordan is a child in my family. He was abducted Tuesday evening by his mother. I know that sounds strange but allow me to explain.
My ex husband fathered this child. He was not aware of his existence until the boy was a little over a year old. The mother, Nancy, approached our family with the news claiming she just wanted him to know about it and to give him the opportunity to get to know all of us.
Shortly after we met Jordan, we began to notice things that didn't make sense. Marks on the child's body, bruises in strange places, odd behavior. Once Jordan was able to talk, we learned that he had been suffering unspeakable abuse at the hands of his mother.
Physical abuse. Psychological abuse. Sexual abuse.
Told to us by this child in his own words.
My ex and my family began a legal battle that has been going on in the court system for more than 3 years. The courts had allowed my daughter Kimmy emergency custody of Jordan and his mother had been kept away from him because there was evidence that she has serious mental health issues and is a danger to herself and others. Jordan has undergone intense psychological therapy to correct the wrongs that were perpetrated against him and his life had just begun to take on a more normal existence including attending school.
Then the court system decided that it would be a good idea for the mother to have strictly supervised visitation with Jordan 4 hours a week.
During her last visit, Tuesday night (9-27-05), she took the child and ran. We have not been able to find her or Jordan since.
The FBI is searching. The police are searching. We are searching.
Yet Jordan still remains unfound.
Please look at this picture. Please read the information I'm about to tell you about him. Please ask your friends and family to learn the same. Contact your local police department if you have any information.
Jordan Rolfe (birth name) or Jordan Barry (name he chooses to use, our name)
Born: March 10, 1999
Height: 4 feet

Marks: Scar on middle back, rash (exzema) on right arm and wrist, wart on right thumb.

Taken from the city of Strongsville, Ohio. Last seen in Lakewood, Ohio on Clifton Blvd. 9-28-05 at 10:00 a.m. We suspect that she will be trying to make her way either towards Mexico, or Florida.
Nancy Rolfe may be driving a White Chevy conversion van with light blue or green pin stripes. She may also be with a friend who drives a white Honda with black trim. Nancy may be going by the name "Flora" and may have altered her appearance to look like an older woman. Nancy is in her 40's, thin, dark hair and approx. 5'6" tall.
Jordan is at risk. He is in danger. We cannot get an Amber Alert issued because there is a custody case before the court, even though the judge, two different psychologists and a Guardian Ad Litum have all demanded that one be issued. There are cracks in the system, please help us to fill them and get the word out.
Please help. He calls me Grandma.
The contact info is:
Detective Sgt. Colegrove
