Trenton Duckett Still Missing, Police state missing Trenton likely Alive

The search continues for the missing 2 year old Leesburg, FL boy Trenton Duckett. Trenton DuckettAuthorities in the first time in the case mentioned that “Trenton Duckett is alive and close by.”

Police Capt. Steve Rockefeller wouldn’t say Friday why investigators are encouraged about the fate of the 2-year-old boy, who was reported taken from his bedroom through a window. Despite numerous searches, no body has been found.

“We have no evidence to indicate that he is dead,” Rockefeller said. “This [investigation] is not fruitless.”

Rockefeller said investigators are also looking at all possible answers for the toddler’s abduction — including his parents’ rocky past. Police records released Friday show that the months leading up to Trenton’s disappearance were filled with allegations of abuse and threats of violence.

The search goes on with the efforts of The project Adam team. The questions remain is whether the parents extremely rocky past and history of alleged abuse allegations and mis-treatment have anything to do with the Trenton’s disappearance?

The couple lived in Bushnell and moved to Leesburg last year. Bushnell officers said they responded last year to several of the couple’s arguments and an allegation of Melinda Duckett neglecting her son.

The accusation was determined to be unfounded, a report said.

Last year, police took Melinda Duckett into custody under the state’s Baker Act, which allows authorities to hold people for a mental evaluation if they show evidence of being a danger to themselves or others.

The specifics of the incident that prompted her being held were unclear. Bushnell police would not release their report Friday. They said it was a medical record not subject to the state’s public-records laws.

Police are working with state and federal agents from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the FBI.

On Wednesday, law-enforcement officers were questioning neighbors in the Windemere Villas apartment complex where Trenton lives and interviewing nearby registered sex offenders.

Andrew Vita, a member of Team Adam, a unit of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, said his organization was helping to circulate fliers and talking with Trenton’s relatives and parents, Joshua and Melinda Duckett, both 21.

“It’s a very intense investigative effort,” Vita said. “They [officers] are working all night long. Some people have been here for several days.”
