An anti-government gun-enthusiast tied up his mother-in-law and sped off with his sons just before the sun rose over Tampa, Fla. Wednesday, police said.
 
Now the law is on the lookout for Joshua Hakken and his wife Sharyn, both 34, who learned their parental rights were terminated Tuesday.
 
Authorities issued an Amber Alert as anxiety grows over the wellbeing of Chase, 2, and Cole, 4. Police learned Friday that the parents were last seen in a 25-feet-long sailboat a few hours after the kidnapping, reported ABC Action News.

Hillsborough County deputies say Joshua Hakken left credit cards and computer prior to kidnapping
Posted: 10:35 PM
Last Updated: 2 hours and 45 minutes ago

TAMPA - A computer, credit cards, an Ethernet card, bank paperwork, a U.S. map and list of contacts are among the items Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputies say they found when searching Joshua Hakken's Tampa home.
 ::snipping2::
The documents show Hauser provided law enforcement with oral and written statements that Joshua Hakken and her daughter Sharyn Hakken had previously planned suicide but Joshua realized "they have a way out."

Hauser also stated that when Joshua left her house Wednesday morning he stated, "phase one completed, ready for phase two."

Father of missing boys recently bought sailboat

The boat's whereabouts are unknown. Had the family tried to sail in the Gulf of Mexico on Thursday, they could have encountered storms along Florida's West Coast. Other storm bands moved through the Gulf on Friday.

The Hillsborough Sheriff's office has issued an arrest warrant for Joshua Hakken on charges of kidnapping and several other counts.

Joshua Hakken lost custody of his sons last year after a drug possession arrest in Louisiana, and he later tried to take them from a foster home at gunpoint, authorities have said. Officials also said that the children had been living with their maternal grandparents since last year, and that the Hakkens were informed Tuesday by a Louisiana court that they'd been stripped of their parental rights.

Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office Col. Donna Lusczynski said that law enforcement in the Southeast and Southwest have put information about the kidnapping onto billboards.

Former boat owner may be key to finding Hakken
5:45 PM, Apr 6, 2013

MADEIRA BEACH, Fla. - The search for Joshua Hakken, the father accused of kidnapping his sons Cole and Chase, centered on Madeira Beach on Friday.
Hillsborough County Sheriff's investigators believe he may be on the run in a 1972 Morgan sailboat named "Salty," which was recently purchased and docked behind a group of beach condos on 129th Ave E.

The former owner of the boat, Gaston Garces, told us by phone that he sold the boat to Hakken a few weeks back and his relationship with him goes deeper than just the sale, but would not elaborate on what that meant.

Garces withdrew from an interview with 10 News under advice from investigators who said his statements could hinder the search for the Hakken and the children.
 ::snipping2::
The focus of the search now appears focused on the boat as investigators try to figure out if he is sailing into the Gulf of Mexico or use the vessel as transportation to another getaway vehicle.

Hakken appears to be one step ahead of authorities in what is shaping up to be a well-orchestrated escape triggered when custody was officially handed over to the children's grandmother.

Ambert Alert for Hakken kids takes to the water
Posted: Apr 06, 2013 5:49 PM CDT Updated: Apr 06, 2013 5:55 PM CDT

MADEIRA BEACH (FOX 13) - Authorities further expanded their search for two young boys Saturday who were kidnapped by their parents earlier in the week in a violent abduction.

Investigators with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are asking boaters from Pensacola to the Keys – a span of roughly 800 miles - to keep an eye out for the boat the Hakken family is believed to be sailing.

"The search, especially for a vessel, is extremely difficult just for the fact that Florida has some of the largest coastlines in the United States," said FFWC Spokesman Baryl Martin. "The nooks and crannies that run up and down the coast of Florida are varied, so a lot of the general public get back in those areas more than we're able to."

Florida Authorities Asking Recreational Boaters to Be on the Look Out for Missing/Kidnapped Brothers Chase & Cole Hakken … Seraching for Joshua Michael Hakken’s Newly Purchased Boat “”Salty” and a Paw Print in White on both Sides of Hull

Quote
It is uncertain at this point whether 35 year old Joshua Michael Hakken, 34 year old Sharyn Hakken and the two brothers, Chase & Cole Hakken, are still aboard the sailboat or whether they might be back on land. An Amber Alert for the boys has been issued in Florida, Tennessee, Louisiana and other states.

Wow, they could almost be anywhere as this abduction seems to have been very well thought out. With as much preparation, one has to wonder whether they have another vehicle parked somewhere else? Or if they have docked, moored the boat in some hidden, secluded cove? Heck, they most likely have painted over the "Salty" and paw prints.

Very good questions.  They're very intelligent and seem determined to accomplish their mission--whatever it is.  Hopefully, the sailboat is found soon, and the boys are safe.

Still no sign of kidnapped Hakken boys
Sunday, April 7, 2013 7:16pm

TAMPA — Authorities spent another fruitless day Sunday searching for the man accused of kidnapping his two young sons and fleeing on a sailboat into the unpredictable waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
 ::snipping2::
Those familiar with the gulf and sailing said Hakken's sailboat, a 1972 Morgan with an outboard motor, is fully capable of a long voyage, though he faces some daunting challenges.

The boat has a blue hull, white mainsail and the word "Salty" painted on the back. Gaston Garces of Tampa listed the boat for sale at $3,200 and told WTSP-Ch. 10 he sold the boat to Hakken several weeks ago.

Garces on Sunday declined to comment further. "We did sell the boat to him," Garces said. "But right now, the detectives want to work things out" before he speaks to the media.

The advertisement for the boat was posted online a month ago. It said the vessel was "in very good solid condition" with a new bilge pump, a CD player, a CB radio and a 19-inch flat screen TV with DVD player.

"Extremely strong boat that could (go) anywhere from weekend beach trips with the family, to even taking a trip to the Bahamas with no problem," the ad said.

The ad also said it had a draft of less than 3 feet, "perfect for going to the beach in shallow areas."

Investigators have no doubt taken note of one other point mentioned in the ad — the boat's 15-horsepower outboard motor has a gas tank of just 6 gallons.

While an AMBER Alert continues in states bordering the gulf, investigators said they cannot assume Hakken is still at sail.

Amber Alert: Detectives continue to follow leads on missing Hakken family
12:17 PM, Apr 8, 2013

TAMPA, Florida - Detectives with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said they received dozens of leads over the weekend in the search for Joshua Hakken and the boat he and his family are believed to be on. Investigators said they followed up on every lead and none of them panned out.

"The good news on that is we know people are now out looking. We know that this is a priority. Not only for us, but the public as well," said Det. Larry McKinnon, with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

The Hakkens are believed to be on the boat "Salty" possibly somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico. Detectives released another picture showing the boat more clearly.  They said they will also meet and review some of the information received through leads and other detective work.

Over the weekend multiple agencies, including the Coast Guard and Florida Fish and Wildlife, searched the vast waterways along Florida's Gulf Coast. The eyes on the water also included the boating public, who received alerts through their radios from the Coast Guard.

Detectives said they are focused on this case, will continue to get the message out, and remain optimistic for the boys' safe return. They are asking Joshua Hakken and his wife to turn themselves in.

Report: Hakken family in Cuba; seasoned sailors say Joshua Hakken may have chosen boat carefully
9:33 PM, Apr 8, 2013

St. Petersburg, FL -- Late this afternoon, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office received information that the Hakken family arrived in Cuba.

A report sent just before 7 p.m. says the sheriff's office is currently working with the FBI, who is in contact with the U.S. State Department, to verify the information.

A State Department official released the following statement:

"The U.S. Interest Section is aware of this case and is in contact with local authorities to get more information. U.S. officials are providing all appropriate assistance to the family. Because of privacy reasons, we are unable to provide any additional information. One of the Department's highest priorities is the welfare of U.S. citizens overseas. This is particularly true for children, who are our most vulnerable citizens. The Department works with parents and foreign governments to resolve these difficult cases."
