6-year-old boy missing. Family leaves on an international trip

Police in Everman near Ft. Worth, TX say a family boarded a plane to Turkey without their 6-year-old son, reports USA Today.

The family left with their six other children two days before police issued an Amber Alert for Noel Rodriguez-Alvarez.

According to Fox4, the seven children including Noel lived in a shed with their mother. Cindy Rodriguez-Singh has ten children in all with three of them living with their grandmother.

Investigators were spotted at the shed gathering evidence. Authorities believe the family lived in the home for 9 years, but in recent years had been living in the shed.

The man who owns the home said he took the family in because they were going through a rough time. He said they left without saying goodbye and expressed shock that the boy is missing.

“They’re scared they’re going to get in trouble with the law,” Charles Parson said to Fox4. “They’re afraid they may have done something wrong.”

The Daily Mail reports Noel suffers from mental and physical disabilities and has been missing for four months. Police believe the mother may be on her way to India. The children they say she left with are between the ages of 5 and 11.

‘The circumstantial evidence is certainly building up to a level where it becomes criminal,’ Everman Police Chief Craig Spencer told Fox News.

Police conducted a wellness check on Noel March 20. but Rodriguez-Singh reportedly told them he was with his father. The father would later tell police he had been deported before Noel was born and has never met him.

“He (Noel) has a requirement to be on oxygen at certain points in time and we don’t know if he’s getting that,” said Spencer.
