FITCHBURG The father of a missing 5-year-old boy from Fitchburg said in court today that despite being recently arrested for allegedly dealing heroin, he still believes he is fit to care for and should be granted custody of his remaining two children.

"I did a stupid mistake... I wasn't thinking," said Jose Oliver, 41, of New Britain, Conn. in the Fitchburg District Courthouse on Friday after a custody hearing.

Mr. Oliver would not comment on the case pending against him, in which police assigned to an undercover sting allege that he attempted to sell them up to $300 worth of heroin.

He was arrested on Dec. 30 near his home and charged with possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics with intent to sell, possession of narcotics with intent to sell within 1,500 feet of a school and criminal attempt of sale of narcotics, said New Britain police captain Thomas Steck.

His son, Jeremiah Oliver, has not been seen since Sept. 14. Elsa Oliver, 28, his wife of nearly 10 years with whom he fathered three children, is being held on child abuse charges. Ms. Oliver's boyfriend, Alberto Sierra, is also being held on child abuse charges. Neither have said where the boy is and investigators are treating the case as a possible homicide.

Three Department of Child Services employees have been fired in connection with the boy's disappearance. The remaining two children are currently in state custody.

Until recently, Mr. Oliver had not seen his children or wife because of a restraining order she filed while the family was living in Worcester in early 2012.

After the closed-door custody hearing, Mr. Oliver described himself to reporters as a "desperate father" who needed the money. He said in a previous interview with the Telegram & Gazette that he would support himself and the children on money he receives through disability benefits.

Mr. Oliver reiterated that he would like people to "take the focus off me and put it back on finding Jeremiah."

"I've got hope and I've got faith," he explained. "I'm ready for whatever it takes to get my kids."

When asked if he believed someone else might be better fit to care for his 9-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter, he said "Nobody's going to love my kids the way I love them."

He said that there will be a follow-up custody hearing, but would not give a date.

For the drug charges, Mr. Oliver could face jail time, but whatever sentence he gets "would be tailored to his criminal record," Capt. Steck said soon after the arrest.

Mr. Oliver was released on bail soon after and will be arraigned on Jan. 17, Mr. Oliver said. He had to reschedule the arraignment in order to attend the custody hearing today.

A search organized by neighbors, family, friends and concerned citizens will be held on Saturday at 10 a.m. in the neighborhood of 276 Kimball St., where the children were living with their mother and Mr. Sierra.

Lynch, Is Jose going to be in town today and involved with you guys in the search? I'm thinking you, him and Dave might want to consider hooking up with the Latin Kings after to see if you can come up with any leads?

You might also want to consider visiting the Methadone clinic too, Jose might have a few old clients down there that might also have some leads?

Thanks again for all the laughs Lynch.

Jose, My thoughts and prayers are with the safe return of your boy. May God Bless and guide you in your search. As for the FPD I have watched this department operate and I am sorry to tell you the opposite of what they are telling you but they are inept and they are not doing everything that they can do. I know they probably told you that they have been dealing with me for yrs and to not listen to me. Yes I have been dealing with them for years as I have been sticking my neck out there in an effort to bring equal justice for all Fitchburg citizens. In order to bring equal justice to Fitchburg we need CNN and the FBI. Without these two there is no hope. I am praying for the safe return of Jerimiah , unfortunately I cannot search any longer do to the total lack of information provided to the public. Historically the police have always depended on the public to solve crimes. Maybe this new boyfriend is being set up. I don't know. But I will tell you if they put out hard facts of this case and it is fact that this boyfriend hurt the boy then the Latin Kings would severe ties to him immediately and put the pressure on in order to find the boy. I wish you the best of luck as you and your family are in my prayers but I cannot go on without any more evidence or direction. Something just isn't right here! Another possibility is that with Gods blessing the boy is safe and maybe the Mother is scamming DCF for millions. In any case I wish of course for his safe return. Amen

We need the FBI and CNN here in Fitchburg. All due respect to Jose but we here in Fitchburg better understand the FPD and the make up of Fitchburg. There is a divide and they are not shy about it. There are too many trust issues concerning the FPD and the community. We live this reality everyday in Fitchburg and this is why we called for outside help. I encourage all to email me with possible evidence and I will forward these facts onward to the FBI. Or call the FBI and give them a tip as they will handle the tip appropriately.

This is why I am a card carrying member of GLAAD. Gays should be given the right to get married, adopt 5 yr. old kids and mistreat or misplace them for months at a time just like everyone else in Fitchburg.
seriously?

Maybe the folks at that HGTV show will build this father of the year a house so the family can be reunited. Maybe with a hydroponic green house for fresh grown veggies (wink wink) and a chemistry lab (wink wink) in the back yard. Thank god he has his SSDI to fall back on, now that the drug dealing gig is over, at least for now

It is a disgrace for the father to be in church for the funeral of his son WEARING a baseball cap backwards. Really?

Have some respect and decency. Lose the cap for once in his life, at least for a short time during the funeral. There is no place for the gangsta look in a church especially at a funeral.
