In search for missing Fitchburg boy, volunteers focus on wooded areas, playground

http://www.telegram.com/article/20131230/NEWS... #

FITCHBURG The search for 5-year-old Jeremiah Oliver continued Saturday morning in the wooded areas around the Meadowbrook Village apartment complex and the playground near the state pool.

The child has been missing since September and this weekend's search is the second by family members and volunteers.

Elsa Oliver, Jeremiah's mother, and her boyfriend, Alberto L. Sierra Jr., are being held on charges related to the child's disappearance. The case is being treated as a possible homicide.

Miguel A. Fleitas of Fitchburg coordinated the search, which was concentrated in the area where the Sierra family lives.

Mr. Fleitas has been going door-to-door talking to neighbors and has received calls.

"A neighbor told me that Mr. Sierra was seen taking the children to the playground in mid- to late summer," said Mr. Fleitas, who volunteered his services to Jeremiah's father, Jose Oliver of New Britain, Conn.; and Sandrino Oliver of Worcester, the boy's uncle.

The first search by volunteers last weekend was in the neighborhood where Ms. Oliver and her three children lived at 276 Kimball St. That search was concentrated around the brushy area close to the Nashua River.

Mr. Fleitas said volunteers carefully combed the area. "But beyond the bridge, it is too dangerous. We will have to wait until spring to really look in that area," he added.

Three teams of 25 volunteers met in front of the Kimball Street home, where a memorial of toys and candles, now covered with snow, still stands.

Dan Giacomozzi of Leominster, a retired corrections officer and former US Marine, headed up one team. Michael Alvarado of Fitchburg volunteered to head up the team that searched the playground, because he knows what it is like to have a family member go missing. He said that he searched for his sister 20 years ago and all they found were some items of clothing. Mr. Fleitas took his team behind the Meadowbrook Village apartment complex.

Sandrino Oliver and his family traveled from Worcester to join the volunteers. Jose Oliver was not present Saturday.

Sandro Oliver brushed off snow from the memorial as the volunteers waited to begin.

"I am doing this because I am his cousin, and even if it were somebody else I would do the same thing," he said.

Sandro's mother, Rose Valcourt, who is Sandrio Oliver's wife, said she hoped that Saturday's search would turn up something.

"We just wish they (Elsa Oliver and Alberto Sierra) would speak up, tell us something, where he is. This child is out in the cold. At least the other two kids are safe (in Department of Children and Families custody). This is what I don't understand. The girl tells the teacher about not seeing Jeremiah for a while and the mother goes out shopping and she seemed to be in her right mind then. It just doesn't make any sense," said Ms. Valcourt.

Pastor Thomas Hughes, of the New Creation Community Church on Boulder Drive in Fitchburg, brought 10 church members to the search.

"We are going to keep looking, keep fighting, turn over every stone. This is our first opportunity to do this," said Mr. Hughes, who said a prayer before the search began.

The volunteers were instructed to be careful, to respect private property and to report any suspicious articles or situations to Mr. Fleitas, who would contact the police.

The group uncovered plastic bags, looked into culverts and drainage ditches, dug out sheets of plywood laying under snow and debris, poked sticks into small mounds of snow and walked through brushy areas near a stream going past the apartment complex.

The search was abruptly suspended after about an hour and a half, when one of the volunteers slipped and fell on an icy section of a parking lot and was taken away by ambulance to the Leominster Hospital emergency room.

"We didn't find anything, but this is better than not trying. There are still some piles of brush that need to be looked at. We're not done with this area, but let's all keep our hope up," Mr. Fleitas said to his group of volunteers.

He said that he also got a tip about a wooded area in Ashby.

"It's where there is gang activity and they do their business. It's very wooded and dangerous, according to my sources," said Mr. Fleitas.

I came here to see if there was any updates on the status of the missing child and instead i see Lynch hijacking yet another post. The guy is clearly a sociopath for wanting to make everything all about him! I just hope if the child is alive, Lynch is not the one to find him. God only knows what a guy like him would do to an innocent child. There is a reason his kind does not reproduce.

One fired, one suspended as Oliver case fallout continues
By Matt Murphy

http://www.sentinelandenterprise.com/breaking...

BOSTON -- The social worker assigned to the family of missing 5-year-old Jeremiah Oliver failed to provide the most basic support services, while supervisors papered over a lack of direct contact with the Fitchburg family despite signs in June that the family was "in trouble," according to a new report.

Department of Children and Families Commissioner Olga Roche announced on Monday that she had fired a third person in connection with the department's mishandling of the case of the missing boy from Fitchburg, who was last seen by relatives in September and is feared dead by authorities.

Oliver's mother Elsa Oliver, 28, and her boyfriend, Alberto Sierra, 22, are both now in custody, facing charges of assault and endangerment of a child, but neither have been charged with any crime relating to the boy's disappearance.

Following the dismissal two weeks ago of the social worker and supervisor assigned to Oliver's case, Roche said the North Central office area program manager has also been fired, and a fourth person -- the area program manager of intake -- has been suspended for three days without pay, reassigned and ordered to undergo additional training.

"The Department is comprised of hundreds of dedicated employees, who work tirelessly, every day, to ensure the commonwealth's most vulnerable children are safe and well cared for," Roche said at a press conference. "It is my belief that the failure and misconduct of the staff involved in this case contributed to this tragedy."

The internal DCF review of the Oliver case revealed that the social workers assigned to work with Jeremiah's family, including his mother and two siblings, failed to make the required monthly home visits to ensure the well-being of the children. Supervisors, including the area program manager, knew the home visits were not occurring, but failed to take action to address the missed visits.

Roche said the Department of Children and Families first became involved with the Oliver family in September 2011, and the family prospered under the supervision of DCF officials and a caseworker from the department's Worcester office. When the family moved to Fitchburg in January 2013, the case was transferred to the North Central Area office and a new social worker was assigned to the case.

Roche on Monday said it was "very clear the family was in trouble" in June following three reports of domestic violence in the home and a threat of homelessness that was never followed up on by the social worker or supervisors in the office. The report indicates that in June the youngest child's pre-school called the social worker to express concern that the child was coming to school hungry and that the mother was considering moving to Florida.

The social worker did not conduct home visits with the Oliver family in June or July. The only home visits took place in February and April. The last contact anyone from DCF had with Jeremiah Oliver came in May when an investigator met with the mother and youngest child -- Jeremiah -- to follow up on a report of abuse of the oldest child. The investigator reported that Jeremiah was "precocious, talkative and articulate."

Roche said she has ordered area directors to take additional steps to ensure home visits are taking place and to further investigate and "employ intensive case management" in any cases involving reports of abuse or neglect of a child five years old or younger in families with a history of domestic violence, substance abuse or other risk factors.

The department will also implement case reviews of families with children living at home every six months by social workers, program managers and supervisors to ensure that field reports can be verified by supervisors, similar to the way the foster care process works.
