understood Jabberwockey, I can only imagine how that feels. When my son was running, hid Dad and I both knew where he was, but we are not employed in law enforcement and amazingly the law enforcement people did not come to us and ask us where he was. His Dad was the one talking to the authorities and he did tell them of the stuff he knew about the meth explosion and who was responsible, and this feels terrible no matter why you do it. Turning in your own flesh and blood is a terrible thing to have to do. But I for one would have if I thought they would acutally go get him. Sometimes it is better for them in than out. Why don't you know if he has an active warrant? Possibly it may be like here, they won't tell you when you call. Strange.Actually, it would be so much easier for us if our son was in hiding due to an active warrant. Lil and I are both mandatory reporters due to our jobs. If we knew he had an active warrant and we knew where he was at we could lose our job for not reporting it and he knows this.
