How Long Has Samuel Been Missing?
KHOU.com in Houston reports the details of Samuel's disappearance continue to change. Detectives in Harris county say the last place they can verify anyone actually seeing the young man goes back to April 30th when he was last seen at his elementary school. Samuel's father Olson says the boy was staying with his girlfriend in the Webster area when the boy's mother showed up with a person in a Harris County police uniform. When questioned by Houston police, the mother said she did not know where the boy was.
As the story develops, authorities are finding the multiple conflicting stories very hard to follow. Now that Texas Equuseach has joined the effort, they hope to find answers very soon. Our prayers go out to this little boy and we hope he is found safely.
