If it had been reported to Police an Amber Alert would have been issued since he is a minor. The media would be all over this regardless of what Dad wants. Police typically field the info calls. This sure seems like a hoax.
Actually an amber alert isn't issued for older kids unless they are KNOWN to have been abducted and in danger. Otherwise they're presumed to be runaways and very little attention is paid. It's tough getting police to even take a report on a teenage boy. Sucks but that's the world.

Until we see a link to a reputable news story or police department post, it's hard to believe this ever happened. Why doesn't anyone post a link directly to a story about "Kade"? Not a link to the police department Facebook page or a link to a forwarded Facebook post- a link to the actual police post or news story! Is that so difficult?

Because as far as I've seen in my google searching, there's no actual news story to be found. I even checked the local news sites in Pennsylvania but it's possible I missed something.

Either way, if he's safe, that's good. Just hope things go okay for him though.

Not a prank. Kade is missing from his dad's home. Although he has made some not so great choices in the past, he is basically a good kid. He's smart enough to know that his dad only wants him so that he doesn't have to pay child support. His dad keeps having him placed in juvenile facilities so Kade isn't around. Kade disappeared from his dad's home during a leave from the latest detention facility. Sine Kade failed to return to the facility, it is now a "fugitive" case for probation instead of a missing person case involving law enforcement. Kade's dad demanded the post which listed his phone number be removed from FB after he received krank calls AND he refused coverage by a Pittsburgh tv channel. If I were the parent of a missing child, I would deal with thousands of crank calls in order to get the one that finds my child and I would be contacting every local, regional and national newspaper, radio station or tv channel for maximum media coverage. Believe me after Kade turns 18, his dad will turn him to the wind!
jlhendricks your a real piece of work!! You do not even know his dad and shame on you for posting such LIES!!!

Obviously you do not know all the facts.
Kade is extremely smart young man who we love dearly. We pray he can turn the corner and make smarter decisions

I find it amazing that people who know nothing about this child's life (JL Hendricks) can tell such blatant lies. Did you ever hear the saying "judge not lest ye be judged"? Obvious who you are friends with. The people who have had the least amount of involvement in this boy's life. And so glad to hear the smart people on here who know you can't just put someone in the system with no reason. Wonder who is really lying here? Just remember all the things will be seen by him when he is released. Just get him the help he needs and stop playing the blame game.

Oh gosh. I know this might be speaking out of turn but I honestly want to give my most sincere apologies.

I can't take back all I said or turn back the clock, though I wish I could but I'm very sorry for my speculating, Mr Shipkowski.

I hope Kade and yourself have better times from now on. Once more, I'm very sorry.

That whole paragraph about it not being a hoax that jlhendricks posted is a copypasta, the same paragraph was written by a woman on facebook a few hours ago.
I'm calling this whole thing a hoax because dad can't just throw him into juvenile detention when he feels like it, crime has to be committed first and since there is no actual reports on official missing databases or any actual news reports, it seems totally bizzare.
It's called 'Unruly Child' and at any time a parent can throw em away just like that. Learn.

there does bot have to be a vehicle involved for a Amber alert!!! Yes it would be on the news regardless of what the family wants the police would turn to the public and the news to get it out there. If you do the right search this has been going around for months and months and is a bad hoax!!!!
Actually, there does have to be a vehicle involved for an Amber Alert to be issued. Do some homework & educate yourself...

Safe/Found.

"I am one happy person at this moment. I just got word from Kade's father that he has returned as of 30 minutes ago. I want to thank everyone who has been posting and re-posting Kade's picture. You have been such good friends through this, and Genna and I appreciate all your help. He is alive and well, and I thank God that this nightmare is over. And....I think I may be able to sleep peacefully tonight. God bless you all!"

Obviously you know nothing about the world of the missing. My nephew, who was 18 at the time, went missing and it took four months to get it on the news and in the papers!!!! Small town police departments do not have "Missing Persons Units" and are not trained in that area. Our local state police detectives had to have a detective from the city write the press releases because they had never done one!!! My nephew is still missing 18 months later and is now listed as Missing/Endangered by NCMEC and NamUS. Kade could have had the same fate if people didn't share the info that you are so quick to doubt and judge. If a "child" is 18 or older, they are usually dubbed as a runaway - unless other evidence supports the notion that they are actually missing, or until they are found murdered somewhere, so until you are educated, keep your stupid comments to yourself. BTW - it is ILLEGAL to file a false missing persons report - if this were false do you really think they would advertise it all over the internet????? AND - what was said about Amber Alerts is true - needs to be an abduction. People need to have some knowledge of the law and do some research before they start shooting off their mouth and telling inacurate information because the next guy may not be informed either and perhaps ignore a missing persons flyer. THIS my friends is how rumors get started. I would feel pretty crappy if I did that and then saw on the news that the persons body was found. Good grief. People like that need to stay off the internet!!!!!!!
