Alec Thomas Hash ‘Missing Child’ flyer removed from FDLE website - deemed “unfounded”  

by Timothy Charles Holmseth

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children says the missing person flyer published by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) has been removed because it has been deemed “unfounded”.

The flyer was published on September 4, 2013, per the collaborative efforts of the FDLE and Leon County Sheriff’s Office.


On April 12, 2014, Write Into Action asked the FDLE why Alec Thomas Hash is listed as a ‘missing child’ despite there being an Emancipation Order, which was issued in February of 2014; nine months after Hash was first classified as missing. FDLE did not respond to the question. However - a short time later - the poster was removed.

Alec Hash, his brother Christopher Hash, and their father, Dr. Mark Hash, have all provided legal notification to the City of Tallahassee that they are suing for Color of Law violations.

“The law enforcement official behind this has destroyed my son’s reputation for the rest of his life. I imagine he will have to go to the courthouse and have his name changed because the Web is saturated with that false and defamatory information,” Dr. Hash said.

Dr. Hash believes the malicious act of listing his son as ‘missing’ was done by a defendant in a pre-existing lawsuit.
