    Sick, sick, sick! When they catch him and they will, long, length prison time. No time off, no plea bargaining, etc.

    What an animal! Praying he is caught quickly and is dealt with harshly. Praying the woman and child will be ok, and that if the woman is involved with this guy, that she kicks him to the curb like the refuse he is.
