Is this story real about this kid missing?

Not sure yet, but I do know it has not been on the local news here in Pittsburgh at all. And if he had been missing since Friday, I would think it would be all over the news here by now. So I'm guessing probably a prank of some sort.

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.

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.

Not a hoax - You saw my post of FB which has gone viral. A lot of crap goes on in families where a child looses. And no his dad can't just throw him into detention but he can AND does lie about what his son does in order to get him into and keep him in detention.

Police are involved as is juvenile probation - Do you really think you here about EVERY missing child especially one already involved in the juvenile probation system? No Amber Alert because there is no vehicle involved or other persons.

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!!!!

There are thousands of 17 year old run always. The police are not going to follow every one of them and the news isn't going to report it.

I Shared. Maybe he'll catch wind that he grandmother is worried and give a call. He will certainly know people cared and there is nothing wrong with that.

And big deal if it is a hoax. All that is wasted is some storage space and band width. Sheesh.

Well, I'm not the only one who thinks this is strange. It's even currently being queried on Snopes and lots of people are confused.

I never said outright it was a hoax, I said I was suspicious. If it's real, I of course, hope he is found safe and well, as I wish for any other missing person.

Perhaps I write too bluntly or covey myself incorrectly?:/

Okay, so it took me a lot of digging, probably around an hour, since most my searches lead to nothing but reposts which is good, given my next point.

I was wrong. And I do feel terrible about myself but I wish to sincerely apologize to anyone I may have upset on here or if I have caused upset to his family, in whatever way.

I finally found a thread with some actual posts from his family so I now know it is real.

Not to excuse my suspicious nature but some people do make hoaxes and in this day and age, there's no such thing as too careful.

I pray he'll be found safe and all this with his father is sorted out because palming him into juvie is plain awful.

Once again, I'm sorry for my words and peace to all here.

But Junie, you did indeed call it a hoax....You're not writing bluntly, you're trying to change your words after the fact.

Where did I say it was a hoax? I said it was being queried, that I thought it was suspicious.

When I saw that paragraph, I thought it was spam/copypasta because of it being all over facebook with the same wording. That doesn't mean I believed Kade was a hoax, it means I was suspicious.

People make mistakes in life and I took responsibility for my mistake and apologized to everyone. Continuing to dig at me after that is simply churlish.

And yes, I did write that but that doesn't mean I believe it was a hoax, it was just that I was leaning more towards it being that way.

Don't tell me you've never made a mistake in your life and as noted, I feel awful already about it. Now I'm simply praying that he gets found and gets the help he deserves and needs.

NOT TRUE they don't post every missing child. Especially if they suspect he is a runaway.:(. They should change the law ANY minor be listed as an amber alert.

After looking through a bunch of stuff, I'm confused as to when he went missing.

The AMBER alert is specifically for suspected abductions, not missing children in general. I've heard of exceptions being made for very young children where there isn't necessarily cause to believe it was an abduction, simply because the likelihood of the child running away is remote in the extreme. So in this case, since there is no reason to believe an athletic, 17 year old boy has been abducted, no AMBER alert is going to be issued, nor would there normally be any reporting on it at all.

Snopes says it's true: http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/missing/shipkow...
I think they're pretty reputable about checking things out.

The rules to issue an Amber Alert say: "AMBER plans require law enforcement to confirm an abduction prior to issuing an alert."

They do NOT issue Amber Alerts for every child under 18 who goes missing. They think this boy is a runaway, so no Alert will be issued unless they find evidence that he was abducted.

It is not a hoax, check Snopes.com . I hope he is found quickly!
