JANUARY 22, 2010 Missing Child from Brooklyn, NH


Patrick Alford (7)
RILYA ALERT

Patrick Alford, 7 years old is missing. He is a black male child who is 4’8 and 65 pounds. He has a thin build and is in good physical and mental health. He was last seen wearing a red T-shirt, blue jeans and black sneakers. He was last seen Friday evening leaving the lobby of the Spring Creek Development in the Starrett City section of Brooklyn, where he lives with a foster family.

Alford's biological family says the boy was placed there by ACS officials when he was taken away from his mother. They also say a caseworker informed them that the boy was missing from his foster home.

ACS officials would not go into detail on Saturday about how the boy disappeared or why the child was not residing in his original home.

Starrett City Child Sought
2-08-2010

The NYPD is asking for the public’s assistance in locating the following missing child who was last seen on Jan. 22, leaving the lobby of his Starrett City residence on Vandalia Avenue. He is Patrick Alford, age 7. He was last seen wearing a red T-shirt, blue jeans with black sneakers.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers web site at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.

Mother of missing boy in court, pleads for his return
February 09, 2010

BROOKLYN (WABC) -- The mother of a 7-year-old who disappeared from foster care more than two weeks ago was ordered to bring her son to family court Tuesday.

But Patrick Alford's mom came alone, saying she has no idea where her son is and is desperate to find him.

Alford's mother and family members continue their search for the boy, begging for his safe return.

"It's been 19 days," mom Jennifer Rodriguez said. "I don't have my son, and nobody I know has my son, but I believe my son's alive."

Patrick is 4-foot-8 and weighs 65 pounds. He has a slight build and a distinctive scar over his left eye. Police have searched the Giant Sugar Creek apartment complex, known to many as Starrett City, where Patrick had been in foster care.

"Patrick, if you're out there and you hear me, I love you and I'm going to find you, I promise," Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez had been held briefly by police, but was released on conditions that she help in the search and investigation. Back in family court, she was allowed to remain free and repeated that she did not take her son or know who has him.

Some believe Patrick is a resourceful young boy who could fend for himself out on the streets. But his mother believes he must be getting help from someone.

"I hope somebody is helping him, I just want them to find my son," she said. "And if you're out there, please don't hurt my son. He's just a boy and he needs to be with his family."

It is a family torn apart by the little boy's disappearance and the agonizing search that is seemingly no closer to finding him.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of this missing is asked to call Crime stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS. The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime stoppers website at CrimeStoppers.com or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

Brooklyn foster child Patrick Alford still missing as NYPD is mystified
Sunday, February 28th 2010

Despite an exhaustive month-long police search, the disappearance of Brooklyn foster child Patrick Alford remains a drama-filled mystery.

Less than three weeks after being placed with a foster family in Starrett City, the homesick 7-year-old disappeared while taking out the garbage on the night of Jan. 22.

In the weeks since, Patrick's biological family has waged a bitter finger-pointing battle, while police have pressed what NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne called "one of the most intensive searches for an individual in recent memory."

Suspicion has surrounded Patrick's biological mother, Jennifer Rodriguez, who lost custody of her son after she was arrested on theft charges. Her aunt has blamed her in the disappearance, and a judge locked her up for contempt because she wouldn't divulge her son's whereabouts.

"I had nothing to do with my son's disappearance," insisted Rodriguez, who passed a lie-detector test. "I believe that my son is still alive."

Rodriguez rejected the idea that the boy - who had threatened to run away before - fled on his own and initially suggested her relatives were involved.

She quickly contradicted herself, saying, "To my knowledge, no one in my family has my son."

The pressure-packed investigation to find Patrick - which boasts a $12,000 reward - has been extensive.

Cops have interviewed some 14,000 people and searched 214 buildings, knocking on 9,100 doors near the East New York foster home and Rodriguez's Staten Island home, police sources said.

Seven registered sex offenders living near the foster family's apartment complex were interviewed, as were 28 bus drivers, employees of seven Brooklyn car services and 21 family members, friends and acquaintances.

Cops also analyzed 81 surveillance videos, including one from the Staten Island Ferry terminal in Manhattan that showed a boy fitting Patrick's description being led away by a woman. His family says it's not him.

Patrick's relatives say they are stumped and have numerous theories about what happened to him. The boy's father, also named Patrick Alford - who has since been granted custody of Patrick's younger sister - said he suspects Rodriguez and the foster mother were in cahoots, noting Rodriguez had foster mother Librada Moran's phone number.

"Her [Moran's] whole story sounds ridiculous. It sounds fake," he said. "If he was threatening to run away, why would you bring him into the hallway [to take out the garbage] with you?"

Rodriguez and her Brooklyn aunt Blanca Toledo have blamed each other in Patrick's disappearance. But Toledo doesn't rule out that the child ran away, saying his spirit seemed "broken" after he was placed with Moran, 58.

"He wanted to come home," said Toledo. "This kid was out of it."

Toledo has been visited at least nine times by detectives, but she says they are wasting their time.

"The boy's not here - he's not here!" Toledo thundered. "I wish he was."

If you have any information about the case, call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS

Missing Boy's Last Meeting with Mom
http://www.wpix.com/news/wpix-pix-investigates-missing-boy,0,5547988.story


CANARSIE, N.Y. (WPIX) - PIX Investigates has obtained exclusive photos of the last meeting between a 7-year-old foster child and his biological mom, about a week before he vanished from an apartment building in Canarsie, Brooklyn.

The cell phone pictures show 7-year-old Patrick Alford happy, when he's posing in front of a dinosaur painting, but forlorn when he's hugging his mother, as the visit was ending.

The boy's grand-aunt, Blanca Toledo, told PIX News, "Patrick was arguing with his mother, 'Why can't you take me home?' He was upset...There was a big scene; Patrick threw himself on the floor. He said 'Why? Why?' It was horrible."

Patrick disappeared, while taking out the garbage with his foster mother, back on January 22, from the Spring Creek Tower apartments in Canarsie. Police launched a huge search, interviewing 14,000 people, but the boy has seemingly vanished.

Blanca Toledo described her niece as a very good mother who doted on her three, young children, until she fell in with the wrong crowd about two years ago. 23-year-old Jennifer Rodriguez is currently in rehab to treat a drug problem.

Police are urging anyone with information about Patrick Alford to call 1-800-577-TIPS.

On Staten Island, mom and kin keep the faith for young Patrick Alford~
Patrick Alford is still out there ... somewhere.

It’s this hope that keeps Jennifer Rodriguez going. A hope beyond hope.

And a prayer that, at any second, her phone will ring and Patrick’s well-remembered voice will be on the other end telling mommy to open the door because he’s coming home.
Missing Patrick AlfordAdvance file photoJennifer Rodriguez, 23, holds a photograph of her son, Patrick Alford in this file photo.
Last night, at a vigil for the missing 7-year-old New Brighton boy held at Mount Sinai United Christian Church in Tompkinsville, which Jennifer’s aunt Brenda Ortiz attends, the Rev. Dr. Victor A. Brown helped Jennifer and several family members keep that hope alive by taking to Pike Street and locking hands in a prayer circle.

“We believe in the power of prayer,” Rev. Brown said. “We know what prayer can do. “I don’t think at this point the family has reason to give up hope,” the minister added.

After four months, hope is all they have left.

Hope ... and so many prayers, you wonder how God manages to keep up.

“I’m still devastated,” Jennifer said. “I’m depressed. I just want him to come home.”

“This has been very emotional for us,” said Brenda Ortiz. “There are no leads. The whole family is torn apart. There are no answers.”

There should not even have been a question, not when the avowed priority of the city Administration for Children’s Services is to try to place the child with family first.

ACS did nothing of the kind when it stripped Jennifer of custody of Patrick and his 4-year-old sister, Jailene, after Jennifer was arrested in December for shoplifting.

Patrick told the ACS caseworker he wanted to go with his father, Patrick Alford Sr. Jennifer “begged” ACS to put both kids with their father.

If the father couldn’t take them, there were plenty of family members — Brenda Ortiz, aunt Claudia Ortiz, even Jennifer’s mother, Debra Ortiz — who could have taken in both kids until Jennifer got back on her feet.

According to the ACS caseworker’s report, Jennifer’s pleas and Patrick’s expressed wishes to be with his dad fell on deaf ears because she lied in court that Alford Sr.’s girlfriend abused her children.

“Unfortunately that lie [Ms. Rodriguez] told in court is keeping the children in foster care,” the ACS caseworker wrote in the report, “and only the judge can determine what happens next.”

With former St. George Family Court Judge Terrence McElrath’s blessing, ACS dragged Patrick and Jailene out to Brooklyn’s Spring Creek Development in Starrett City to live with a stranger, a foster mother named Librada Moran.

Patrick didn’t want to be there. Every time he spoke with his family on the phone, he pleaded to come home, his grandma Debra Ortiz said a couple of months ago.

On Jan. 22, when it became obvious that nobody was going to let the little boy go home to his family, Patrick made a run for it.

Ms. Moran told police she and Patrick were taking trash downstairs to the lobby of her building. She said she took a call on her cell phone and ... poof, Patrick was gone.

That’s her story.

Little Jailene had her own version: She said her brother took out the trash that night.

Why believe a 4-year-old over an adult? Because it doesn’t make sense for Ms. Moran to lug her trash down 11 flights to a bin in the lobby when a trash outlet was located next to her apartment. She had only to walk a couple of feet outside her door and toss it down the chute.

It’s a moot point now. Jailene lives with her father and Patrick hasn’t been seen since.

Police haven’t given up hope any more than Jennifer has. Last month, they scoured 1,000 acres of woods and marshland near Howard Beach in Queens, not far from where Patrick was last seen, after one of their dogs picked up Patrick’s scent on the ground.

There were no signs of Patrick. But the old adage, no news is good news, sustained the family.

“I believe he’s alive,” Claudia Ortiz said last night. “I believe he wants to come home.”

Jennifer echoed her aunt nearly word for word.

“I do have faith,” she said. “Every day I have faith.”

Faith ... and a prayer.
