luke_finch.jpgA statewide Missing Child’s Alert was issued to help locate a three year old boy that disappeared while at the Riverfront Park in Cocoa, Florida Saturday around noon.

The boy’s father, Paul Martikainen, 35 has court appointed supervised visitation with his son after there were previous child abuse allegations involving the boy. According to the reports Martikainen managed to slip away with his son while on one of the supervised visits at the park.

Cocoa Police Department describe little Luke as standing about 2’9” tall, weighing 33 lbs. and he has blond hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a blue sweatshirt, blue pants and black and red fire engine sneakers.

lukes-father.jpgMartikainen is a white male, standing about 5’11” tall and he weighs 176 lbs. He has blond hair and green eyes. He may be driving a green Ford Explorer that has a dent in the rear bumper. The tag number is 143KEA.

Cocoa Police public information officer, Barbara Matthews said that the investigators were meeting with agents from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to widen their search statewide. “Investigators have received several tips and sightings of Luke,” she said. “However those sightings have been outside of Brevard County.”

Anyone with information regarding the location of the boy is asked to contact the Cocoa Police Department at 321-639-7620.

I pray that little Luke Finch is found soon and that he is safe and unharmed. This is another fine example of how screwed up our laws are. If the allegations against this man are true he should never have been given visitation rights with his son. This proves that a child isn’t safe even during supervised visitation. If a parent has been abusive towards their child, whether it be the father or the mother, they should be kept away from that child forever after that. Visitation should be automatically taken away from them.

Please continue praying for all these children along with their families that love them also. Here is my list of children to pray for plus so many more that is not on my list, Caylee Anthony (found dead), Adji Desir (remains missing), Haleigh Cummings (remains missing), Somer Thompson (found dead), Elizabeth Olten (found dead) , Masaraha Ross (remains missing), Alex Mercado (drowned) Rebecca Marie Allen (found alive), Sandra Cantu (found dead), Anthony Holland (found alive), Shaniya Davis (found dead), Hassani Campbell (remains missing), Giovanni Gonzalez (reported dead), Neveah Buchanen ( found dead) and Shannon Dedrick (found alive), Angel Miguel Perez (found safe) Luis Martinez (found dead) and now Luke Finch (still missing).
