'Missing Person' charade ends in Florida

Alec Thomas Hash no longer listed as missing

by Timothy Charles Holmseth

The Leon County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) in Florida has removed Alec Thomas Hash from the National Crime Information Center (NCIC). This latest development comes as Hash’s ‘missing person’ flyer was removed from the Web.

“Since Hash has been emancipated he is no longer considered a runaway,” said Joel Weaver, LCSO.

Hash, (now) 17, got married and fled Florida in May of 2013 to avoid being taken into the custody of the State.

Hash’s bizarre plight drew the attention and support of high ranking officials including U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss [R-GA] who has requested the Justice Department investigate the facts and circumstances surrounding the case.

Law enforcement’s recent decision to halt the action against Hash creates new questions about how and why he was ever listed in the computer system in the first place.

Law enforcement records now refer to Hash as being considered a “runaway” during the time he was listed in the NCIC. However – the Emergency ‘Ex Parte Child Pick Up Order’ issued by Judge Karen Gievers that triggered the NCIC listing does not classify Hash as a “runaway”.

“It is currently believed the child is being detained by the father’s friend in Georgia,” Giever’s said in the Order.

Law experts state that what the Judge did next was illegal.

Judge Gievers ordered the arrest and detainment of Alec Hash’s father, Dr. Mark Hash, on two separate occasions. “Mark Hash shall be taken into custody to be held in the Leon County Jail until Alec Hash returns to Florida and turns himself into the juvenile detention center,” Giever’s said.

The nature of the situation is exasperated by the fact Dr. Hash has a lawsuit filed against the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE). Additionally - Dr. Hash, Alec Hash, and Christopher Hash have all notified the Tallahassee Police Department (TPD) of intent to sue.

“This is a corruption case – not a custody case,” Dr. Hash said.
