Erwin police searching for missing father, children

Posted November 2, 2010

— Erwin police are searching for a missing father and his two children. The case was first reported as a parental abduction Tuesday, but was later changed to a missing persons case.

Susan Boggs told police she took her 7-year-old fraternal twins – Alyssa Ann Allen and Alex James Allen – to visit their father, Alvin Allen, on Sunday afternoon, with the understanding that he would return them three hours later.

Boggs called police Monday after the children were not returned. She said she made multiple attempts to call their father, only to learn his phone service had been disconnected. He also cleaned out his house and took a leave of absence from his job, she said.

The case does not qualify for an Amber Alert, police said, because Boggs allowed the children to go with Allen.

Both children suffer from asthma and are without their medications, according to Boggs, who said Allen does not know about the children's medical condition or how to treat them.

Allen and the children might be traveling in a gold 2000 Chevy Tahoe with N.C. license plate XZC-7746 or ZWS-5529. Their direction of travel and possible destination are unknown. However, Boggs says Allen is originally from New York and still has ties there.

"I want him to bring my babies back, just bring them back safe and not harmed," she said.

Allen has a history of domestic violence, according to court records.

Since the time they disappeared, an emergency ex-parte and child custody order has been issued by the courts, according to police. Prior to their disappearance, there was no custody order or agreement in place.

Anyone with information should call the Harnett County Communications Center at 910-893-9111.

    Oh and by the way she has a history of domestic violence also...forgot to mention that tho didnt she....

    I am positive that whereever he is with the kids they are safe and sound...and furthermore i think there is always 2 sides to a story but most of you have already passed judgement on this guy..who knows what she may have done to push him to this point..but as usual most of you have already put the blame all on him... I used to work with him in Raleigh and know for a fact that he will never hurt his kids..and that he has always been there for all 6.. he does know of their astma and how to treat it.. So Miss Boggs can sucker you all in to her fake rying and that poor me thing all she can...But like i said there are 2 sides to a story get all the facts before you pass judgement.....

    People, please excuse wilcat- he has not taken his medication. Also, wildcat did not pass 5th grade English. He or she, whatever it is. Work on your grammar skills before you post comments that make you look like a complete ijiot, not to mention your completely ridiculous reasoning. Thanks!

    "the mother pretended to cry but there was not tears. whats up with that pretender." - wildcat.

    Perhaps because they CUT THE CAMERA AWAY FROM HER when she become emotional? Good Great Gosh Amighty Wildcat, give it a rest - or least post more than one sentence at a time so we don't have to go through PAGES of your vitrolic rhetoric in order to read other's comments. You are really starting to come off as a troll!

    Who should really have full custody of the children...the mother or the father? The mother has painted a pretty picture of the story. Is any of it really true?
