    Obviously Mr Watson does not have legal custody of this little girl, so he has kidnapped what appears to be his daughter. If this is accurate, he needs to be taken out, when whatever law enforcement office catches up with him. In his description, that lazy eye should be included, for it is a tell tell sign of his appearance.
