Cedar Park Police Searching for Child Missing Since July
Updated: Thursday, September 11 2014, 11:14 PM CDT


(Photos from the Cedar Park Police Department.)


(Previous booking photo from the Williamson County Sheriff's Office.)

UPDATE: Police say the mother of the child -- identified as 20-year-old Meagan Work (pictured below) -- is being charged with abandonment/endangerment of a child, a third degree felony. Investigators say Work is homeless and living out of a car, but was found at a Cedar Park address. Police say they don't know where the child was last seen and Work is giving inconsistent information. Brandt's disappearance does not meet the criteria for an Amber Alert because a child has to be kidnapped or abducted, police say. Investigators say Brandt's Father has been interviewed, but could give no details.


EARLIER: Cedar Park police say they are searching for a child believed to be a victim of child abuse missing since July. Investigators say Cedar Park Police received yesterday a welfare concern of a child call. Officers were able to locate the child's mother, but not the child. Detectives say the child was last seen by people other than the child's mother in July.
 
 They say the child's mother is providing inconsistent details of the whereabouts of the child and the circumstances surrounding his disappearance. Colton Brandt Turner, 2, is described as a white male, 3'0" tall, 30 lbs, with blond hair and green eyes. He may have a black and purple blanket with him, police say. Cedar Park police say they are working in conjunction with the FBI in this case.

FBI searching for missing Cedar Park boy
Published September 11, 2014, Updated September 12, 2014

 
Authorities believe Colton is in immediate danger, and Work is providing inconsistent details about his whereabouts and the circumstances surrounding his disappearance. Work has been taken into custody and is facing charges of abandoning and endangering a child.

“She’s being charged because she doesn’t have custody of her own child,” Asst. Chief Mike Harmon said. “I don’t know too many parents out there that haven’t seen their child since July 2014, and don’t know the whereabouts of it.”

Work pleaded guilty in May 2013 to assault causing bodily injury. She was also arrested in 2012 for cruelty to livestock animals.

Colton’s father has also been interviewed and questioned, but police provided no further information about what they may have learned from him.

Cedar Park police say they are working with the FBI to find Colton. He has blond hair and green eyes and may have a black and purple blanket with him. Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800-CALL-FBI.

Police cannot confirm whether or not Colton was abducted. Because of that, an Amber Alert was not issued since the boy’s disappearance does not meet the necessary criteria at this time.

Police searching SE Austin for evidence in missing boy case
September 12, 2014


Austin police and other authorities are collecting evidence in Southeast Austin near Burleson Road and Felter Lane after receiving “credible information” in the case of a missing Cedar Park boy.
Cedar Park police announced Thursday night that they had been searching for 2-year-old Colton Brandt Turner after someone called authorities concerned about his welfare.
Police arrested the boy’s mother, 20-year-old Meagan Work, at a Cedar Park house Wednesday night. Investigators plan to charge her with child abandonment and endangerment in connection with the boy’s disappearance, Mike Harmon, an assistant Cedar Park police chief, said Thursday. Work has provided “inconsistent” stories about her son, he said.
Authorities requested STAR Flight’s help looking for the boy from the air Friday morning. The helicopter took off around 8:33 a.m. and landed about an hour later.
In a statement, Austin police said the investigation into this case spans multiple jurisdictions.

FBI, police searching for missing 2-year-old boy from Cedar Park
Published: September 12, 2014, 7:46 am    Updated: September 12, 2014, 11:11 am

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin police set up their command post in Southeast Austin just before 11 a.m. Friday. A source tells KXAN that investigators are following up on “strong” leads into the case of a missing 2-year-old boy from Cedar Park, Colton Brandt Turner.

FBI investigators arrived in Southeast Austin around 9:40 a.m. Friday, where STARFlight crews say they were searching for Colton. After searching from 8:30 a.m. to 9:20 a.m., STARFlight crews returned to the hangar — though they would not say if they found anything in the area they combed through.
“The Austin Police Department received credible information in reference to a missing persons case involving the missing child from Cedar Park,” said Austin Police Department spokeswoman Anna Sabana. “This is a multijurisdictional investigation, and our Missing Persons Unit — along with other units — are actively working at collecting evidence in Southeast Austin near Burleson Road/Felter Lane. When appropriate, additional information will be provided, but at this time it’s a fluid investigation, so we are asking for your patience.”

Austin police earlier Friday morning told KXAN that they were working with the FBI and Cedar Park police in that area. Officers cordoned off the area with crime scene tape, as STARFlight flew overhead with what appeared to be an ******* taking advantage of the aerial perspective at the scene, which is near an auto repair shop and Hot Bodies men’s club. Officers escorted in crime scene technicians.

Officers appear to be walking into a fenced-off wooded area, which apparently have no homes, according to people who work on this street.

 
Police received a call about 6:20 p.m. Wednesday concerned about Colton’s welfare. Cedar Park officers were able to find his mother, 20-year-old Meagan Work, but did not find Colton. Police say Work has been living out of her car for the last several months. Officers found her outside a Cedar Park home but would not say who alerted them to her whereabouts.

Investigators determined the last time the boy was seen with people other than his mother was in July.

Authorities believe Colton is in immediate danger, and Work is providing inconsistent details about his whereabouts and the circumstances surrounding his disappearance. Work has been taken into custody and is facing charges of abandoning and endangering a child.

Colton’s mom used to work at Bikinis Sports Bar & Grill off Interstate 35 and St. Johns Avenue, where a manager told KXAN that the corporate office would be sending out a statement soon. Work’s Facebook page indicted she began working there in October 2013, though she only worked there for six months.

Police search for missing toddler in Southeast Austin
September 12, 2014

 
Police received a call around 6:20 p.m. Wednesday regarding a welfare concern of a child. Cedar Park police officers found the child's mother, but not the child.

Police said the child was last seen around July 2014. Police said they believe Turner is in immediate danger, and that the child's mother is providing "inconsistent details" about his whereabouts and details about his disappearance.

"Not knowing where the child is. The mother not knowing who has the child, where the child is, what the welfare of the child is. That's what makes us believe that [the child is in danger]," said Cedar Park Assistant Police Chief Mike Harmon.

Detectives said the person who called police saw pictures the boy's father posted of him on Facebook, showing him with cuts and bruises. KVUE spoke with Turner's father on Facebook. He said the last time he had seen his son way May 30. When Turner's mother disappeared, he tried to find them and contacted police then. He said a family member recently shared the photos of Turner's cuts and bruises, and he immediately shared them with police.

In a press conference on Thursday, police said the boy's mother, 20-year-old Meagan Work, is homeless and will be charged with endangering a child and abandoning a child, both third-degree felonies. She told investigators she last saw Turner in July. She and her son were living out of her car.

A search of Williamson County Jail records showed that Work has a criminal history, including charges of animal cruelty and assault. Detectives also said Work has a history with Child Protective Services, but did not go into further detail.
 
The Cedar Park Police Department and the FBI are investigating. Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800-CALL-FBI.

Third Cedar Park attacker pleads guilty in disabled teen's beating
Posted: Wednesday, November 30, 2011 5:34 pm | Updated: 5:53 pm, Wed Nov 30, 2011.


CEDAR PARK - An 18-year-old Cedar Park man became the third person to plead guilty in the September assault of a mentally disabled teen.
Brandon Lee Pelfrey was senteneced to four years in prison by a Williamson County District Judge.
In early November, two more of the five people arrested in the assault were also sentenced to four years in prison after they pleaded guilty.
Judge Burt Carnes convicted Pelfry and sentenced him to four years in prison, even though he was eligible for probation.
Pelfrey followed the lead of Tyler James Bracamontez, 17, and Markus Ole Mathis, 21.
Two juveniles were also detained. Their cases are being handled by the county attorney's office, according to District Attorney John Bradley.
On September 3, 2011, Cedar Park police investigated a report that Griffith had been attacked by several individuals. He was found in torn clothing and with an "L" drawn on his forehead. He had cuts and bruising on his body, along with a cigarette burn. He also reported being choked to unconsciousness.

I have no idea what is true or not true in this case. I don't know if the folks posting are who they say they are etc.   I've posted some of the comments that are posted at the end of the article.  It's up to individuals to decide what is and isn't imo.  I really, really fear for the well being of Colton Turner.  It doesn't sound good for him, but I'm praying for a miracle he can be found safe.

Williamson County, CPS, Probation, come on, they drop the ball all the time. Bottom line is there is a missing child here, grow the F _ _ _ up and quit blaming each other, get the info out there, and just make it happen. Do whatever it takes to find this little boy. I am once again amazed at our society and how we always seem to put blame on the Father for something or other, they are a FATHER, and why do they not have equal rights from day one? In many cases, they are far better than the Mother who sits back and collects those child support checks and has nothing to have to prove as to how that child is being taken care of......................no wonder so many dads take the law into their own hands or kidnap their children, its sometimes the childs only chance to have a decent life, Come on people, stop the blame game and simply pray this precious little boy is found safe !!!!

Just putting this out there to everyone who believes my cousin Brandon col tons father had anything to do with his dissapearance. A month ago he began trying to tea k him down on his own under the belief Meagan just didn't want to see him and so was keeping colton from him. When he couldn't track her down two weeks ago after receiving g messages of concern from a mutual friend he called burnet PD and tried to file a report. Because he was believed to be with his mother they told him they would file the report and to contact with any additional info. Two days later he called to tell them he knew where she would be that night. They said no report had been filed and none would be because it was not an emergency. Sin e the. He has called the center for missing and exploited children who could do nothing g without a police report. So he continued begging the police to make the report and they refused. Then he received some desterbing pix of colton that were taken in jul. Again he tried to involve the police to no avail until he spoke with caps after the report and then he found out where they could find Meagan that night and informed them.

I work for law enforcement and there's holes in the story. They write a report on such circumstances and follow up regardless of the situation. You shouldn't post things as such until you're 110% certain on facts and the statements you're making.

So the father knew the potential whereabouts of the mother and child but didn't follow up himself to see where she was? If that were my child I would be searching night and day. Blowing up 911 until they either listened to me or arrested me for abuse of 911..... At least they heard me! I would have gone where baby mama was that night and gone batsh!t crazy until I found my son!!! Something isn't right and both parents know more than what's being said.

Honestly the whole thing is suspicious. If they have mutual friends you would think your "friend" would tell you if your ex and little boy are sleeping in a car. FOR SEVERAL MONTHS. And why they hell did his "friend" send him pictures and not call the cops on the spot with the photos he has posted on fb? Hell sorry to say this but I would have lied to the cops, that boy would have been out of her hands. Now you just posted this comment to "defend" him. That he's been looking for her for a month yet on Megan's fb she posted Monday about going to the doctors bc she's pregnant, Brandon commented "wow" on this and she told him to message her. He's had the pictures for two weeks and couldn't come up with a lie or anything to convince the police to move? Cps? Dps? Nothing? Sorry your defense of him doesn't sound very convincing. She on the other hand should never get to see a kid again or the light of day. If she caused the harm in the photos he shared I hope she gets it ten fold. AFTER SHE HAS THE CHILD SHE IS PREGNANT WITH! I'm praying for this little boy, I really pray he is found safe and sound....

The FBI doesn't get involved in local missing children cases. There's more to every story than what meets the eye, exact reason they're withholding the statements from the father and his knowledge on the case. The law has more evidence and are tracking the little boy more than the public will ever know. It's a matter of time before light shines down on the truth.

Do these parents live in a vacuum? Where is the family, where are the friends and workmates? Is everyone so self absorbed they didn't see this developing? This is almost as disturbing as the report of the missing and reportedly abused young child.

My husband and I have family living less than 10 minutes away in all directions, and friends as well, and we can go months without seeing anyone. People are content to rely on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and whatever else to keep "in touch", so I don't think it's that shocking to hear a toddler -- who isn't in school yet -- has virtually disappeared without anyone noticing. Sometimes my kids' grandparents go 2+ months without visiting or seeing pictures of them for no reason other than they are busy. And we live in a nice house with great neighbors and a dog. Even the American dream isn't enough to get people to pay attention to each other. Razz

From the AMBER Alert website:

"For an AMBER Alert to be effective in recovering a missing child, the law enforcement agency must have enough information to believe that an immediate broadcast to the public will enhance the efforts of law enforcement to locate the child and apprehend the suspect. This element requires as much descriptive information as possible about the abducted child and the abduction, as well as descriptive information about the suspect and the suspect’s vehicle. Issuing alerts in the absence of significant information that an abduction has occurred could lead to abuse of the system and ultimately weaken its effectiveness."

Without that descriptive information, every blonde-haired, green-eyed 2 year old becomes Colton Turner, and it becomes increasingly more difficult for law enforcement to follow up on leads that could actually produce results.

This is because police had not known that colton was missing and friend thought she had dropped him off with a ‘friend' even though he wasn't real. But police did not know this. Plus police were searching for Megan and she had hid out. Until a recent tip from a close person to me for Megan stealing 300 from their account. Police had no idea where she was.

FBI involved in search for missing Cedar Park boy, mom in custody

This photo shows 2-year-old Colton Brandt. The FBI is assisting with the search for Brandt, who was last seen by relatives in July 2014. His mother, 20-year-old Megan Work, was arrested this week in relation to Colton's disappearance.

UPDATE: (11:50 a.m.) - Reports from the scene in SE Austin indicate a possible excavation, and some media outlets are reporting that a body may have been found. There has been no official confirmation of either, but we will keep readers updated as we have new information.

UPDATE: (10:00 a.m.) - Austin Police Department and other agencies are investigating a possible crime scene in southeast Austin. An APD spokesperson confirmed that the search is related to the case of missing Cedar Park 2-year-old Colton Brandt Turner.

ORIGINAL STORY (8:32 a.m., Sept. 12, 2014) - Former Leander High School student Meagan Work was arrested this week after police were unable to locate Work’s 2-year-old son, Colton Turner.
Police say they began the investigation late Wednesday, after receiving a call concerning Colton’s welfare. Cedar Park police found Meagan, but could not find Colton.
Work, who is 20, is a former LHS student and had reportedly been living in her car for several months, including a period of time living with Colton in her car.
Cedar Park Asst. Chief Mike Harmon said that police believe Colton is in immediate danger, and are working with the FBI to find the boy, who turns 3 next week. Because Work has not been forthcoming with information about the whereabouts of Colton, and police say she has provided inconsistent details about his location and when she last saw him, Harmon said Work has been arrested and will be charged related to the disappearance of Colton.
“She’s being charged because she doesn’t have custody of her own child,” Harmon said. “I don’t know too many parents out there that haven’t seen their child since July 2014, and don’t know the whereabouts of it.”

Child’s remains found in Southeast Austin
Published: September 12, 2014, 7:46 am    Updated: September 12, 2014, 4:03 pm

AUSTIN (KXAN) —  The search for missing 2-year-old Colton Brandt Turner turned tragic Friday as a child’s body was found in Southeast Austin where the FBI, Austin and Cedar Park police were searching in a wooded area near the intersection of Burleson Road and  Felter Lane.

We have every reason to believe the remains of that child are those of little Colton Turner,” Cedar Park Chief of Police Sean Mannix said in a news conference Friday afternoon.

Mannix said the case went from missing persons case to a homicide investigation within 48 hours.

“We are no longer looking for a missing child in Cedar Park and instead are investigating a death and disposal of a body,” He said.

The body believed to Colton’s was discovered in Austin Police’s jurisdiction. Chief Art Acevedo said the person of interest in the case, is Colton’s mother, Meagan Work, is in custody.

The FBI, Cedar Park and Austin Police descended upon the wooded area early Friday and used STARFlight crews to search from above. Shortly after the helicopter left the scene, sources told KXAN that they would begin excavating for evidence.

FBI investigators had been working with Cedar Park police to find Colton, after asking for the public’s help Thursday evening in finding the boy who they believe is a victim of child abuse. Colton would have turned 3 years old in nine days.
