A dedicated father tried everything to search for his children privately. Finally, on Matteo James' 12th birthday, a father went to social media to spread the word of his plight. Stephen James posted the following:
I want to say Happy Birthday to my son Matteo. He turns 12 today. I havent seen him and his little brother Zane in 80 days since they were kidnapped to Mexico by their biological mother and maternal grandmother. I miss them tremendously and
I know my sons miss me as well as being scared and confused. Please share this with as many people as possible in the hope that eventually Matteo or someone close to him will see this. Thank you.
The mother of the children was on a supervised visit when she took the children. It is alleged they ran to Mexico with the children. This case, however, takes legal twists and turns from there. The court granting sole custody to the father, Stephen James, is Bell County. CPS and law enforcement involvement from before the children became missing involves Williamson, Tarrant, and Bell Counties. The father lives in Williamson County, the mother lived in Tarrant County. All these municipalities, including the cities within have a hand in. Then, there are the higher ups, due to the nature of Mexico involvement. The issue within all of these municipalities is no one wants to issue the warrant. Every side is waiting for the side to do so. So, as Stephen waits, his children could be anywhere.
The pictures above are the last ones taken by their dad. The children have been missing for almost three months. Imagine if this were your child. Would you want people to scream it from the rooftops for you? If so, help Stephen by doing it for him! Help bring his boys back home. Zane will be celebrating a birthday in November. He needs to be celebrating it with his legal guardian, his Dad!
The only picture found of the mother, Alma Alicia Gomez James (aliases include Alicia Gomez, Alicia James), is not as recent. She's dropped weight, but facial recognition shouldn't be that difficult.
Un padre dedicado intentado todo para buscar a sus hijos en privado. Por último, en el cumpleaños 12 de Matteo James, un padre se fue a los medios de comunicación social para difundir la palabra de su difícil situación. Stephen James publicó lo siguiente:
Quiero decir feliz cumpleaños a mi hijo Matteo. Él cumple 12 años hoy. No he visto a él ya su hermano menor de Zane en 80 días desde que fueron secuestrados en México por su madre biológica y su abuela materna. Los extraño muchísimo y
Sé que mis hijos me echas de menos, además de ser asustado y confundido. Por favor, comparta esto con personas como posibles en la esperanza de que con el tiempo Matteo o alguien cercano a él, verán esto. Gracias.
La madre de los niños estaba en una visita supervisada cuando se llevó a los niños. Se alega que corrió a México con los niños. Este caso, sin embargo, toma giros legales y pasa de ahí. El tribunal otorga la custodia exclusiva al padre, Stephen James, es Bell County. CPS y la participación policial delante de los hijos se convirtió en falta implica Williamson, Tarrant, y los condados de Bell. El padre vive en el Condado de Travis, la madre vive en el Condado de Tarrant. Todos estos municipios, incluyendo las ciudades de tener una mano pulg Luego, están los altos mandos, debido a la naturaleza de la participación de México. La cuestión en todos estos municipios hay nadie quiere emitir la orden. Cada lado está esperando a que el lado para hacerlo. Así que, como Stephen espera, sus hijos podrían estar en cualquier parte.
Las fotos de arriba son las últimas tomadas por su padre. Los niños han desaparecido desde hace casi tres meses. Imagínese si se tratara de su hijo. ¿Te gustaría que la gente lo grita a los cuatro vientos para usted? Si es así, ayudar a Stephen al hacerlo por él! Ayude a llevar a sus hijos de vuelta a casa. Zane estará celebrando su cumpleaños en noviembre. Tiene que ser lo celebra con su tutor legal, su papá!
La imagen sólo se encuentran de la madre, Alma Alicia Gomez James (alias incluyen Alicia Gómez, Alicia James), no es tan reciente. Ella bajó de peso, pero el reconocimiento facial no debe ser tan difícil.
This shirt is available in Bald Knob.
In the trucking bible, chrome is next to godliness. I'm a chrome junkie. I am an addict. I don't want rehab.
In pursuit of the almighty chrome, I have visited many chrome shops. I am a regular customer of two, and will be trying out another one here shortly.
From the infamous ones in Wyldwood, Joplin, and Walcott to the less known ones in Phoenix, Bald Knob, West Memphis and other parts of the world, I've seen a lot. We are huge fans of Trux and Rockwood, which are pretty much available at all of the shops. All of the shops have one thing in common; they all carry chrome and lights. The differences are in customer service, overall friendliness, pricing, and stock.
I have drivers and their wives ask me where we got this or where they should go. I will go ahead and publicly tell you so that it is well known. I will never send a driver to somewhere I won't go.
The worst instances have been infuriating at best. I never drop less than a couple hundred dollars at any place we go. We are now starting anew with our truck, and I won't tolerate nonsense on going to all new parts. I have been allowed to stand there like a lost crackhead for over 30 minutes in three separate chrome shops, never once being asked if I need help. In one, once I walked up to ask if they would give me advice, I was sighed at and made to feel like I was a burden to them. We walked away without a single piece of chrome. At all 3 of the lost crackhead stores, they were all in a hurry to leave the customer wanting advice, after having employees pass them up while they were trying to find someone available, at least six times.
All but one commit highway robbery on chrome. I refuse to pay $9 for what I know Josh has available for $5. If a small chrome shop has it that cheap, a major chrome shop, with a bigger wholesale contract, should have it cheaper.
Can't smile at me? Don't expect me to come back. I refuse to shop at a place that thinks the customers need them. Newsflash! The customers buy your parts, allowing you to work there. (For the less intelligent, the customers are your boss, they pay you.) I will not be snarled at (this happened at the sigher mentioned two paragraphs up). I am a human, I have money in my pocket, and want to be treated the same whether I intend to spend $10 or $1000.
I will now tell you the two I frequent and why I frequent them.
THE CHROME SHOP IN BALD KNOB, AR
WOW is the best way to describe this place! The best prices around. Josh and Roger are the main ones we deal with there. Josh owns the shop, and is there most of the time. He came out, looked at the truck, and grabbed a shopping basket. He knows my budget when I walk through the door, and hands the baskets of stuff over. I trust him with our truck. He is very knowledgeable on what he sales and DOT regs on the extra lights. He will warn you if you're a woman not to roam around Bald Knob at night due to safety reasons (that right there earned instant loyalty toward him). They will bust your balls while joking with you, and can handle getting what they dish out. They treat you well even if you don't intend to spend any money (I saw it myself). They truly have southern hospitality. If Josh doesn't have it, he will special order it for you. His specials make some of the pieces so low that even the Ramen noodle truck driver can afford chrome. He can do installation, and ships free to anywhere in the continental U.S. If you stop in, tell him his favorite pain in the ass says hi.
DANNY'S BIG RIG OASIS IN PHOENIX, AZ
These poor guys are always getting their balls busted by me, whether it be Kevin being put on camera for an interview he's totally unprepared for, Gabe getting messed with for his term "Molly Whop," Chris having me demand his presence like I own the place if there's an issue, or the polisher with the nickname Pinche Pindejo for what he called my headache rack. They have the absolute best truck wash in the nation, and their 67th street location has the best polishers in the southwest. Fresh food is available at their main location, and I love the breakfast burritos. (Walk across the street to eat at Denny's and you're an idiot.) You will be treated like family. Also, the driver lounges have the most comfortable seating I have ever seen. The washer and dryer are either $1 or $1.50.........cheapest you can see nowadays. We've had pow wows at their facility. Last time, it was 15 of us meeting there and grilling out without issue. They are pay to park with security on premises. Security are characters there. I will tell anyone to go there, enjoy your visit, and get an "Old Chrome Gangster shirt. (Make sure to give Chris McDermott hell for me while there.)
Good luck in your own chrome pursuit!
