Boys Escape CAS
March 15, 2007 permalink
Here is another Hamilton CAS story that doesn't add up. Two boys have been missing for three months, yet there have been no police alerts, and no news other than this solitary item. No one seems serious about looking for them. Maybe they agree with us, that the boys are safer outside of CAS control.
CCAS looking for missing boys
HAMILTON (AM900 CHML) - Hamilton Police and the Catholic Children's Aid Society are looking for help finding a pair of missing boys.
14-year-old Mark Gartner and Steven Walker, also 14, were last seen in mid December.
The 2 don't know each other but officials say they disappeared at about the same time.
Gartner, who is dark skinned, 5'9", 150 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes, had been at a foster home in Hamilton for the last year.
Walker, is white, 5'2", 145 pounds with short curly brown hair and blue eyes and had only been at a foster home in Grimsby for less than a week when he vanished.

Addendum: The Hamilton Spectator printed pictures of the missing boys on March 16, with wording suggesting one or both were crown wards. Also below, CHML reports one of the boys was found in a place the cops did not suspect for three months — with his mom and dad. In a move out of Alice in Wonderland he can now be saved from his parents.
