difficult child 2 and his wife have not been living together since the end of September. I thought several times that they were going to get things worked out but last Friday, his wife disappeared with the grandkids. We know a little and it is not good. She left with a guy difficult child had been working with. He had moved in with the lady across the street from me (a good friend of us all) this summer. I was never comfortable with him but I had no particular reason to feel that way. Now that they're gone, we find out he is 44 years old and has kids older than my daughter-in-law and he has grandkids. He has spend over 20 years in prison and was on parole and wanted for drug charges when he came here from Maryland. Maryland wants him back but they don't have the money to come and get him and unless he is arrested for something else, they won't do anything. I know that is true because difficult child is working with the local police and they are the ones who told him that. He has made threats to difficult child on difficult child's cell phone (yes, he kept them) and the police told difficult child to be sure he has a gun because the guy is considered dangerous so if he breaks in to "make it count." We got in her house yesterday (with the landlord who is difficult child's best friend). She took all of the clothes but not much else; none of the kids' stuff except the clothes. No kitchen stuff. No furniture except somebody saw them moving the big expensive TV - that was difficult child's but they weren't gone long when they moved it so I don't know if they stored it, sold it, gave it away, or junked it just to be nasty. Haven't talked to the school yet so I don't know if they've heard from her but obviously they are not in school here. His ex girlfriend thought he was planning to go to Florida; daughter in law has a grandmother there but I talked to her yesterday on Facebook and she knows nothing and she thinks they're all nuts so I'm sure she'd tell me if she knew something. There is a possiblity she's in the town where her parents just moved about 60 miles from here; the police are supposed to be looking into it but who knows if they'll actually do anything? GFGF has an appointment with SASA; police told him they'd help him sue for custody. daughter in law got in a fight a couple of months ago and is on a PR bond so if she leaves the state she will be in violation but it's not anything serious so the law would not go hunt for her. Her mother has warrents in several states and her dad may have one too but it seems that unless you kill somebody nobody wants to spend the money to come and get you. We are waiting to see what happens. I'm not sure where the grandkids are; noboby has heard from them or daughter in law in nearly a week. SHe changed her cell phone #, left granddaughter's cell phone behind so she can't be tracked, and unfriended us all from Facebook. What a mess! Please pray for my 3 grandkids or send good thought or whatever. Thanks.
