  1. Hey Mac…donโ€™t judge a book by its cover? Looks can be deceiving? The child was located unharmed. Do you think that perhaps he is a distraught man who just wanted to be with his daughter? You donโ€™t know what the familyโ€™s situation is or why heโ€™s not allowed to see her. He did wrong in the abduction of her but perhaps have some understanding that when a dad canโ€™t physically be with his own flesh and blood, he may take drastic measures to do so even if itโ€™s just a short moment in time. Was he truly going to harm her? You and I will probably never know.

  2. So glad to hear that the child was found safe and sound nice to hear good instead of bad. Father must learn that there are other ways to see his child and abduction is not the right way just causes bad feelings and now he may never get to see her. But her safety is what counts and he did not harm her in any way.
