Additional documents filed may 17th show another filing for an emergency custody order, with the reason stating the child was removed from the marital home without consent, and his “well-being and safety are unaccounted for. His medical needs are unmet.”

On July 15th, another document outlines an injury the child received during a visitation period with his father. The document shows that during an exchange on July 6th, the mother noticed a large knot on his head and asked the father what happened.

The questioning made the father get upset, according to the document, stating that the child was fine and did not give any details as to how the child was injured.

The document also indicates that the uncle of the child, who works as a medical professional, advised the mother of what to do in case the child showed symptoms of a concussion.

Members of the community have been left wondering how the situation could have escalated, given documented circumstances.
