Wait a minute. This man kidnapped HIS OWN son, and raised him well. And now he is getting jail time for that? I know that he was taken from his mother, but please. There must have been some logical reason.
Axxel Rose
The father did a good job of raising him... that should count for something... idk if I agree with the man going to jail
Damn he cute tho
Kaitlyn Kennedy
so the Alabama police didn't think to check with his FATHER for 13 years to see if the boy was with him? like???
Alyssa Abdulluoo
I get this is serious, but he’s hella cute😍🤤😂
It's so sad that the father got arrested, like I understand that he was "kidnapped" but come on! He wasn't harmed in any way, he was probably raised in a good home with clothes on his back and food on the table. That's just ridiculous

Makes you wonder why the father ran off with the child in the first place? Going as far as hiding the child's identity...if this would have been a woman the news would have been painting another picture. Weird. Very weird.

Before the video started, a commercial came up about impeaching trump😂 Lmao

Let’s be honest. It’s pretty clear the son was much better in the fathers custody than he would have ended up with the mother. Do a little research and you will see that she was not a perfect mother. The boy was about to get ready for college, the dad raised him damn near perfectly. No charges tell the mom to take a hike and be happy he son is alive and well and if the son wants to start a relationship that’s his choice. Case dismissed.
I don't know why they say 'courage'. I would think anyone who found out that their name doesn't match up would naturally go looking into it and find out. It's a natural instinct to find answers, not courage.

How can he be 16 when he was missing for 13 years at age 5?

Wait wait I’m confuse if he was 5 when he was kidnapped , and then was missing for 13 years. That would make him 18, yet apparently he is 16.... I’m so confused🤨

Who's watching in 2018 or 2019
Wow. He never googled himself! I thought everybody does that. You'd think if he did that he would find something and ask. Just crazy stufg
The US judicial system is weak and with a lot of blank spaces. The father should be put in jail.

Cutie alert 🚨
Hidden in plain sight, eh? *SNEAK: 100, Level Up*
Ok but he is beautiful

with how the court system set up its the only way for a dad to take care od his son......
Bibi Sanchez
@kendallrae !!! COVER THIS
"He discovered that he's missing" *THE IRONY*
Kill me please
Oh hey look at that!! My 'dad kidnapped me!!! Like how do you just find that out. 13 years!!
Maybe the mother wasn't fit and the dad saw that so he took him away. Cuz obviously he turned out a great kid
Prince Vegeta
Man... This should be the ending of The Missing. :(
Poor kid. It sounds like he had a positive upbringing with his Dad. I can't imagine the mixed feelings he must have. Reconciling the fact that he was a good father to you, but also let your mother believe you had been abducted and potentially killed. I don't care what happened between the parents, that is pretty messed up.
CNN Math: 13 + 5 = 16

1:17 I can’t be the only one who thinks this guy looks like benedict cumberbatch’s older less popular brother
This reminds me of the click bait article "Woman joins search part to find herself."
Emmy & Oliver much?! I feel bad for that kid. Imagine your whole life being, in a way, a lie.

Mom probably wouldn’t have took good care of him anyway! She probably a meth head! Dad did a good job raising him!

maybe his dad is actually saving him from his mother

5 + 13 = 16 years old going to college? Something does not compute
Damn. He just wanted to go to college.
Let me get this straight. He's his biological father. He raised him well. No abuse happened. 250,000$ bail. Mate the mother must have been crazy, I say this man doesn't deserve this.
