My thoughts on the Noah Terry Thomas disappearance

Update: As of 3/26/2015 the body of missing child Noah Thomas has been found. The details surrounding the tragic discovery only further stick out to me as suspicious. How did he get there? Did someone put him there? Read more here.

Virginia child Noah Terry Thomas has been missing now for a handful of days under circumstances that are a little questionable. Police officials -- along with volunteers -- have searched the wooded area surrounding his home for days with no success, not even picking up any scent with search dogs or any evidence indicating that he ever wandered through the area. These details concern me since the story being given by the boy's family involve him wandering out of his home while he was supposed to be watching television on Sunday morning. Here we are three days later. So where is the evidence supporting the current story?

I want to examine the circumstances surrounding this child's disappearance, and take a look at the various theories in his case that can be considered. Did this child really wander away on his own into the dangers of the great outdoors -- or did he fall victim to foul play?

Noah's mother told authorities that she brought the child with her when she drove her husband to work on Sunday morning. She said that it was around or before 7:00 a.m. Between that time and approximately 9:30-10:00 a.m., she realized that the lad was missing. 

It is assumed that Noah wandered out of the home, but no evidence has been published in the media to confirm this without a shadow of a doubt.

Authorities have declared that the boy's parents have been cooperative in the search and investigation, but what hasn't been addressed is whether or not the mother or the father have taken polygraph tests to clear them of involvement. Since authorities have expressed frustration that there have been no developments in the search over the past three days, it seems like common sense to at least clear them of misleading authorities. Now, let me clarify that this post is meant in no way whatsoever to accuse the family as their community searches for their lost child. However, it's a statistical fact that most crimes against children are indeed committed by custodial relatives -- in particular, parents. It's important to clear them of involvement, at the very least, to make sure that every avenue has been exhausted in the search for Noah.

Furthermore, if Noah was able to wander off and disappear so mysteriously -- what was his mother doing in this amount of time that she was unaware of what her son was doing? Keep in mind that there is a window of time from a little after 7:00 a.m., until around 10:00 a.m. -- around three hours, give or take.
