I am looking for my little brother. He is between 10 and 15. his name is cody wayne lang. I have not seen him since his mother and my father seperated when he was 4 years old. I would love to reconnect with him and make him a part of my life.

Please post every detail that you can about him and where he might be and who he might be with - - everything that you are comfortable posting.

This thread will probably be moved or deleted by the mods because of the nature of the subject matter. However, there should be a sticky about this type of request.

While it is 95% likely that this is an innocent request, this is the internet and there is a major amount of anonymity to the real name of the poster. I strongly urge that people NOT respond to these requests with information unless they are absolutely 100% certain of the identity of the poster and the situation surrounding the "disappearance." The raw facts of life are that many people are abused and their abusers are continually trying to find out where they are. Other people may be seeking a person because of some attempt at retribution. We all are aware of the witness protection program, which is used in extreme cases. Most disputes don't reach that level of protection by the government.

To anyone legitimately seeking a lost loved one, please consider the standard legal channels, or hiring a professional to conduct the search. I know the chances of you being honest and innocent are very great, but I simply could not live with myself if I inadvertently guided someone who was an abuser towards their prey.

We should not be helping anyone search for minors on this site. And we should not be helping minors search for others on this site. You are suppose to be 16 years old just to use the site by the terms of use agreement.
If anyone is attempting to find a minor who is a sibling or a child or grandchild, they should be going through the proper channels, through the courts and requesting visitation. Relatives of the child have certain rights to visitation as rewarded by a court. If you are a parent looking for a minor, you should be paying support for that child and you should be able to get visitation through the court.
If the court has deemed that you should not have visitation, then we should not be helping you locate the child. It is up to the custodial parent and the courts to decide who should have visitation rights and who should know the location of the child, not us.
I think this site does some really great things as far as reuniting people. But there are some cases we should not be helping, and searching for minors or helping minors search for others is one of those areas.

I disagree with this post but you have a right to say it. They have done a lot of good and anything is a crapshoot in this life.

I think you are going to have to wait until he is over 18. Good luck to you.

Instead of looking for your brother that may be a minor; you can look for his dad.

A minor is just that and whether it is looking for one or helping a minor child find another is in violation of the Terms of Service.
