Athena Brownfield

After the 4-year-old girl vanished, a married couple who police claim was looking after her in Oklahoma was detained and accused, according to the authorities.

Athena Brownfield was originally reported missing by police after they launched a search for her young sister after they saw her unattended outside a house in the town of Cyril, which is roughly 55 miles southwest of Oklahoma City, earlier this week.

According to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, Alysia Adams, 31, was detained on Thursday in nearby Grady County and is accused of neglecting two children on two separate occasions.

Ivon Adams, 36, was detained on Thursday in Phoenix, Arizona, according to police in Oklahoma and Phoenix. According to a court record submitted in Maricopa County, an outstanding felony warrant had been issued from Oklahoma on allegations of first-degree murder and child maltreatment.

After a mailman reported a young child who was unattended and stumbling outside the Adamses’ home to police on Tuesday, authorities learned that Athena was gone, according to detectives. When authorities discovered the kid, who was revealed to be Athena’s 5-year-old sister, she was unharmed, according to law enforcement. But since then, Athena has not been found by authorities.

According to Oklahoma authorities, Athena was being looked after by the couple at the time of her disappearance. They say the investigation is ongoing and they are worried about her welfare.

Speaking on behalf of the state bureau of investigation, Brook Arbeitman said on Wednesday in afternoon, “You’re talking about a child who’s been on her own.”

Athena’s parents have been contacted by authorities, but they have declined to disclose more details about what happened.

Police confirmed earlier this week that they had spoken with Athena’s parents but declined to elaborate on the specifics of the case.

Officers examined Athena’s house and are now searching the neighborhood for more hints.

Arbeitman added, “We are finding things around town that could be helpful in this case, but I’m not going to label them evidence.

According to the State Bureau of Investigation, von Adams is presently being held in Maricopa County Prison while he waits to be extradited to Oklahoma. According to authorities, Alysia Adams is being held at Oklahoma’s Caddo County Prison.

On Friday, it remained unclear if the pair is represented by a lawyer.

Why was Athena Brownfield living with the man now charged with killing her?

It’s one of the major questions surrounding the tragic death of the 4-year-old. Police said Athena’s mom left her in the care of Alysia and Ivon Adams as many as two years ago.

“Ideally, if you’re going to have a child that’s out of your home a significant amount of time, you would go through the court and give guardianship to somebody,” said Linque Gillett, a family law attorney.

How the two caretakers, Ivon and Alysia, came to be in charge of Athena, 4, and her 5-year-old sister is a mystery. Athena and her sister were living with Ivon and Alysia after their real mother abandoned them in the couple’s care, according to a court document made public on Tuesday.

According to the records, Athena and her sister addressed them as “mom” and “dad” or as “uncle Ivon” and “Aly.” Gillett has been practicing family law for 15 years but is unrelated to this case.

Resources:”Ultimately, you as the parent have the responsibility – as that parent legally responsible for your child – and you have to make safe decisions for your child,” Gillett said.

The statement stated that Alysia and Ivon did not take either child for checks and that Athena’s sister, who is 5 years old, was not enrolled in school.

According to the lawyer, parents frequently worry about the expense or other factors when considering using the legal system to appoint someone to care for their children. Athena’s biological parents are cooperating, according to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, and have not been charged in this instance.

1 year old vanishes from home – Quinton Simon

Quinton, a 1-year-old, was reported missing on October 5 by his mother, who claimed that her boyfriend had seen him in the family’s Savannah home at around 6 a.m. She later awoke to find Quinton gone.
She called 911 shortly after 9:30 am and informed the dispatcher that Quinton couldn’t open the door but that she had discovered it open.
Responding cops were informed by the dispatcher that “he thinks someone came in and took him.”

Police conducted a thorough search of the region with assistance from the FBI and other surrounding law enforcement agencies.

Childminder speaks up
Quinton and his younger brother had been in the care of babysitter Diane McCarta for around six months. Even when their mother isn’t at work, she said she monitors the kids every day.

On October 5, McCarta claimed, she was scheduled to watch a child, but the family phoned her and informed her that she wasn’t required that day. When she later learned that the youngster had been reported missing, she thought it was strange that the plans had been altered so suddenly.

“I got a text this morning saying they would not be here, would not be babysitting them at 5:29 [a.m.] Which was kind of odd because I have them even when she doesn’t work,- Diane McCarta

“And then I get a text at 9 a.m. saying have I seen Quinton? I immediately go to their house. I try to help them look, but they didn’t want that. So, I’ve been just waiting around like everyone else.”

The Chatham County Police Department said it had responded to the home twice in the past, but neither call was about a missing child. The department also said the disappearance doesn’t seem to be related to any custody dispute and that all parties are cooperating in the investigation.

Leilani Simon didn’t contact the police until around 9 am that morning. But her boyfriend is the one that said that he saw Quinton at 6 am, not Leilani For all we know she could have been sleeping in. She did also state when she woke up she noticed there the front door was open. They do have a lot of people living in that house there is a possibility that the door was left ajar and the boy walked out and got lost and someone took him.

Harvy Moss Quinton’s Biological father claims he hasn’t seen his son in 8 months. His mother passed away on October 23rd and his father was in a critical hit-and-run on November 4th. And passed away. No suspect has been named in the hit-and-run.

Police believe that Quinton is not alive they have been searching the landfill for his remains. The police have not said why they think he might be in the landfill somewhere.

The mom has been seen at the bar while people look in the landfills but here is the thing, Would you really want to look for your child in a landfill? Presuming you have nothing to do with your lost child and you’re already getting attacked by social media and everyone you know. And you’re missing your baby would you really want to search for your baby in a landfill?
