it seems like the children are considered missing bec. the parents were not allowed to run away with them. the parents are not really missing ,. shomrim just cant find them.

As we know, b’h reciting tehillim in such times has its benefit. So with every letter and word and perek said, may it be in their merit for a positve outcome and safe return.

Sounds like a kidnapping to me

#13 Comment By awacs On February 9, 2015 @ 11:15 am

Kidnapping your own kids? Huh?

#14 Comment By the parents arent allowed to have their children On February 9, 2015 @ 7:41 am

so they took them…. choldren missing… kidnapped(i guess)

#15 Comment By dont people get it? On February 9, 2015 @ 11:27 am

The poor children were not supposed to be in the parents’ custody for reasons that are rather obvious.So when the parents “kidnap”children it means they are in danger and therefore efforts need to be made to remove them from that situation.From the comments it sounds like people are very naive or uninformed.In any case, the children need to be found.IYH’.

#16 Comment By CHT On February 9, 2015 @ 11:57 am

I would clarify it this way: 2 people are Wanted and the other 2 are Missing.

#17 Comment By parents are not perfect. On February 9, 2015 @ 12:39 pm

But childrens and parents ned ich other , they are a family after all , even if parents are not perfect

#18 Comment By You are right people don’t get it. On February 9, 2015 @ 12:05 pm

Based on the information circulating, it seems the whole family is missing. In reality, your version of events ( Parents don’t have custody of the children, and have taken them anyway and run away) seems to be the legitimate situation here- watch out for these people.

#19 Comment By just part of the story is told here…. On February 9, 2015 @ 12:51 pm

if they are (presumably) with their parents – why is so many resources spent on finding them ? just so they can “get lost” again by their own parents?!

Obviously some city or state order/rooling didn’t stop them this time… why/how will it stop them next time ?!

#22 Comment By Citizen Berel On February 9, 2015 @ 3:53 pm

Go parents!

#23 Comment By strange case On February 9, 2015 @ 4:44 pm

It said on another site that the parents were given temporary custody so how can they be missing?

#24 Comment By are you ok #17 On February 9, 2015 @ 5:02 pm

Wow you are either a troll and not funny at all or seriously impaired if you believe all children belong with their parents.Sometimes children are abused and wives are abused or both and therefore, no one should have to be forced to live under such conditions. Children are innocent victims of some very sick people who shouldn’t be near their kids.Since you don’t give two cents about the suffering of others,maybe you should go back into your hole.

#25 Comment By Citizen Berel On February 9, 2015 @ 5:42 pm

What a fantastic comment. You have a different view than me so you are a troll or seriously impaired and don’t give cents for human suffering. What lives in a hole. You must live in a dark, dark world.

I’m neither a troll nor impaired nor do a I live in hole, and I fully agree that generally kids belong with their parents.

The state has been a bad actor for so long that they have absolutely zero credibility.

If you don’t agree with me you are rampaging pillager, a would be robber of children from loving parental arms, trading them to nanny state for not even 2 cents.

See how that works.

#28 Comment By first hand On February 9, 2015 @ 6:13 pm

I am a witness to the husband being an abuser physical and verbal also sexual . No reason he should have custody .

#29 Comment By yup this is real live situation: please be respectful On February 9, 2015 @ 7:19 pm

#32 Comment By Heartbreaking On February 9, 2015 @ 9:49 pm

This is such a terrible situation…as a community we should not be blaming anyone. This family obviously needs help. Hope they will be located safely & get the treatment/therapy/intervention they need to live a healthy & happy life

#33 Comment By sad On February 9, 2015 @ 11:16 pm

Once met these kids together with two wonderful and caring foster parents. They are hurting too after giving so much love to their “daughters.”
