I've read up on several differnet laws and stuff today - and, by definition, there is no evidence to support the endangerment charge eventhough I firmly feel that she was acting in neglect and maltreatment by not saying anything . . .
This is because failing to report when your child has gone missing for almost a month is not illegal - there is no law against it. A child can go missing for 10 years and same thing - this is not classifed as anything at all.
Obviously there is something horribly wrong, here - it SHOULD be classifed as a criminal act to fail to report when your child has gone missing, been kidnapped, abducted, etc etc etc - within a reasonable amount of time. ESPECIALLY if your child ends up dead at some point whlie they were absent from your presence or abused by someone else.
