An 18 month old Texas toddler has gone missing. Last Friday, Joshua Benitez was watching Toy Story with his mom and left the room. Outside of the room were six other adults and another child. After ten minutes and Joshua not coming back, the mom went looking for him but no one had seen him. The mom does not believe that he would have walked outside on his own, but that is what police believe happened. During the ten minute period, one adult came in and out of the house, but police do not believe that person is a suspect.
How does an 18 month old walk out of a house with all those people there? What were they doing that they would not notice some kid going outside. Can an 18 month old even reach the door knob and turn it and walk out? No Amber Alert was sent because it has to look like an abduction before one will be issued. Here is my thing with that. If some kid did walk out by himself is that not worthy of an Amber Alert? You know, be on the lookout for an 18 month old kid wandering around in the dark? This is so sad and hopefully they find him really soon.
