Levon Wameling: Father Waits Two Weeks To Report Missing Son
drugs, alcohol, partying...
Levon Wameling, 9 months, was reported "missing" two weeks after his father said he went missing. When a child goes missing, if the parent does not cry out for the child immediately, the parent is signaling that he may not want the child found.
His father, Jevon Wameling said that he locked himself out of the house, and left Levon alone on the porch while he went around to the back of the house to crawl into the window. When he came back out to the front of the house to get Levon, he had disappeared.
Family members asked about the baby's whereabouts, forcing Wameling to report him missing. The baby's mother was reportedly in drug rehab, leaving the baby with him. The reluctance speaks volumes.
We are looking for the father's statement, but thus far, have none.
Neighbors on Jay Street in Utica recall loud nights full of music and drinking that often ended with the cops being called.
The man who lives in the apartment below Jevon Wameling's on Jay Street says he distinctly remembers hearing 9-month-old Levon crying back on either May 28th or May 29th.
Neighbors say Jevon lives a typical night life, coming home at 2 or 3 in the morning, often under the influence of alcohol. The neighbor, who did not give his name,
says there were often complaints about the loud music coming from his apartment. He says that behavior all suddenly stopped two weeks ago, which he found odd.
Neighbors says the cops were called to Jevon's apartment once a week because of screaming fights inside the apartment.
The neighbor says those fights ended back on when his girlfriend moved out.
One neighbor is very concerned about the welfare of Levon and says he can't think of a good reason to wait so long to report the child missing.
