September 12th, 2012
September 5, 2012
It has been 30 long years since your were ripped away from your family and everything you knew in life to be good. On the day you were kidnapped, it was so difficult to believe such a thing could happen in a quiet neighborhood. Nothing like this had happened in our community before.
I could only imagine what was happening to you, the terror, fear and pain you endured. In the first days, thousands of people volunteered to help us search for you. Each time a search party would come back and had found nothing, I breathed a sigh of relief because perhaps it was a sign you were still alive.
My prayers for you were that you would be found safe but until that time God would be watching over you. Each night I prayed that some new idea would come to me to try that would bring you back home. Every morning there was something new to try, someone to reach who might help but in my heart I knew each minute, hour of every day was time out of your life.
Within a short time TV shows wanted to hear your story, as the shows would air, new leads were coming in to be worked. We hired a private investigator to work full time, it was at that point we began to get real answers. What we learned, no parent would want to know but we had to face the truth of why children are kidnapped. At that time, I not only missed you but the pain of now "knowing" what was happening was a walking nightmare. What you have suffered, no child should ever have to go through.
At times, I would remember you as a little boy and some of the things you said and did. One time, you told me at 5 yrs. old that you wanted a "blue castle cake for your birthday". I had no idea where you had seen that type of cake. But eventually, I found it in a cookbook the exact cake you described. Building the cake was a family project, you were so happy when it was finished that you didn't want to eat it. You told me you just wanted keep it forever.....
Every parent wants the best for their children and it breaks my heart to know that your innocence and childhood were robbed from you ... I wish you could be as happy as you were in this photo.
A short time after you were kidnapped, a neighbor lady called me and said " I would like to tell you what a fine boy you raised. Johnny helped my six year old son. One night after school some bullies were beating up my son and smashed his lunchbox, Johnny ran to help, he jumped in tossing each of the bullies onto the ground, telling them to get lost... they ran like the wind. Johnny then walked my little boy home. I just thought you should know what a kind boy you raised. " Johnny, you came back home and never mentioned the "good deed " you had done that day by helping the other little boy. It was very touching to hear, somehow it made me feel as though you were not so far away.
As years passed, we received valuable information that you were possibly still alive. Other victims contacted us, we had more pieces to place in this giant puzzle. Then came a real break, information that you were definitely still alive and had escaped reached us. You are grown now and do not look like the little boy who was kidnapped, so you can "hide in plain sight" and live. Even though that means it isn't possible for a normal family life, you are safe. That information surfaced a number of years ago, my hope is that you are still alive today.
It has been a very long 30 years and no one knows that better than you. I am proud of you, Johnny and hope you are able to see this message.
I love you,
STATE OF IOWA STATEMENT ON TV REGARDING A COLD CASE TASK FORCE
October 15, 2011
This week it was announced through the media that the State of Iowa was discontinuing the "Cold Case Task Force" in Polk County. During the news report on NBC, they sited Johnny Gosch's kidnapping as well as a few other cases.
It was reported they did not have the money for the Task Force to continue to investigate these cases..Well it is news to me and the Johnny Gosch Foundation that there was a Cold Case Task Force in Polk County. No one had ever contacted me or the Johnny Gosch Foundation regarding the case or any involvement of the Task Force. I would suspect no one ever talked to the Martins or the Allen's concerning their kidnapped boys either. The West Des Moines Police and FBI have done precious little since the case began but absolutely nothing in the past 14 years.
It would have been more professional if they had at least sent some type of notice to the families of the victims. Instead of them learning of this Task Force being shut down on a TV News Program.
Could this just be another way of closing these kidnap cases forever so that it would seem as though "it never happened here"?????? That would be my guess, since the WDMPD have hounded me for my DNA for the past two years and I declined to give it to them. We know they would have used the DNA to claim some body in a morgue somewhere in the country, saying it was Johnny and closing the case. I was advised by my attorney to decline to give my DNA to anyone.
Earlier in the year when a corpse was suspected to be Johnny in Colorado, the medical examiner called me and said the WDMPD had sent Johnny's dental records. She also told that the "WDMPD were pressuring her to say it was Johnny's body".
The examiner then stated that in the dental records there was a "tooth restoration" (filling) in a certain tooth. I replied "your corpse is not Johnny, he had a tooth restoration but in a different tooth". There was dead silence on the phone and the medical examiner finally said " oh so you have seen the dental records then"??? I replied " oh yes I have a set of them and know for certain your corpse is not Johnny. So you should be asking yourself why would the WDMPD try to pressure you to say it is Johnny when they know full well it is not"?
Following that phone call, Jim Rothstein, retired New York Police Detective contacted the medical examiner and explained what has been going on in the Des Moines area concerning the cover up on the three kidnap cases.
This is just a portion of the latest activity on this 29 year old case.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BY TONY NASSIF
Massive Arrests Made in Internet Pedophile Ring
Amazing Timing: I just received a news story about the recent breakup and arrests of an international pedophile ring. This appears to present a good example of the information I presented in my last release entitled "The Evil Dynamic to Pornography" leading to active deviance. including some 70,000 members, tens of thousands of images and films of children being abused. Over 230 children were rescued.
Arrest and Rescue: "... Europol said in a statement that "Operation Rescue" had identified 670 suspects and that 230 abused children in 30 countries had been taken to safety." MSNBC.COM How many more are there? How vast is this demonically inspired/influenced perversion of possession, addiction and abuse? Where are they getting the children? Many of those arrested come from prominent/professional positions in their community. Moral depravity defies demographic description. Vast amounts of images and films were taken as evidence. When you read the article of how the site operated you can see the progression of degeneration. The article link is below.
Noreen Gosch and the Discovery: Years ago one of our regular PreventingAbuseConference speakers, Noreen Gosch, mother of kidnapping victim Johnny Gosch discovered her son was abducted by a national pedophile ring (30 years ago). A few years back she uncovered a massive Internet pornography network resulting in hundreds of arrests. Below is a statement from her:
"Human trafficking is fanned by the flames of "pornography". The internet has made it easy for these perverted individuals to view [pornography] .... all types and soon that isn't enough to achieve their thrills, they must move on to something else which is often violating a child. Addiction to [pornography] is the breeding ground for "human trafficking, murder and torture of young innocent victims."
Noreen Gosch, 3-17-11
Do You Remember?
Remember the discovery of government officials from the SEC and Pentagon accessing pornography? This presented national security concerns. Could this recent Internet pedophile ring lead to national security threats?
How Many More Are There: Here's my question: How many more sites are operating? How many more women and children are victimized? Nearly 1,000,000 children reported missing every year. Child pornography is the fastest growing on the Internet. Where are they getting the children? Hundreds of thousands of children trapped into prostitution...in America.
The Spiritual Dynamic to Sexual Exploitation: When a person is sexually exploited they experience the ongoing tearing and destroying of the mind, body and soul. To deal with the torment, many victims fall into mental compartmentalization i.e. multipersonality disorders schizophrenia).
The Evil of Perpetrators: Perpetrators of child and women sexual exploitation are not necessarily just afflicted with a messed up gene. These people are diabolically evil. Consider this: To victimize a woman or child that person(s) have to formulate the evil plan to capture the victim, over the cries and continual cry of torment they continue the victimization (some 30 times a day!!!) and yet some are murdered. Jesus said the evil one seeks to take life.
Yet, Jesus came to give life. John 10:10
What We Can Do: We need to put pressure on the Justice Department to prosecute obscenity crimes, impact our culture to return to moral values that help protect children. Support movies and media programming promoting sound moral values and elect government officials who support those timeless values.
Stay in Touch: Stay tuned as we are about to announce our next PreventingAbuseConferences.

NANCY DIS-GRACE SHOW
I must admit it has been a long time since I have seen such a "dog and pony show" as that which I witnessed last night on the Nancy Grace program. I know that when they called Jim Rothstein, retired New York City Police Detective (who has been working on Johnny's case for over 12 years) to be on the show, they said " do you think Noreen would still come on the show if we called her". Jim said "no, she wouldn't". I declined to do this show based on previous shows I had viewed by Nancy Grace, she is a very caustic, angry and bitter woman who attacks most all of her guests for no apparent reason. I have worked too hard for nearly 30 years to jeopardize this case by doing a TV show such as Nancy Grace.
In their attempt to tell Johnny Gosch's story they failed in so many areas and left the viewing audience with half truths or is that half lies. I find impossible to believe that the West Des Moines Police would have given the "entire case file on Johnny's case" to CNN to read. Yet the show host stated " the police did a lot on this case because I have read the entire file". The West Des Moines Police would have only sent "what they wanted the show to see".
As they talked about Paul Bonacci, discrediting him, they failed to mention that in court in February 1999, Federal Judge Urbom asked Bonacci to tell all the details of the Johnny Gosch kidnapping. Bonacci did so.... at the end of the proceedings, Judge Urbom ruled that "PAUL BONACCI WAS TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT THE JOHNNY GOSCH KIDNAPPING". Yet as the show continued the host stated "Police have never been able to confirm that Bonacci was involved in Johnny's kidnapping". THE WEST DES MOINES POLICE DID NOT EVER QUESTION PAUL BONACCI ABOUT THE JOHNNY GOSCH KIDNAPPING, SO HOW COULD THEY PROVE OR DISPROVE ANYTHING. They failed to report that Bonacci had not been questioned.
About The phone calls which came to our home, again the show host failed to tell the audience that there was another person at my home and took the calls with me (we had two phones). They also knew Johnny and his voice. Yet the show host delighted in saying that I "imagined it". Good lord I have seen better drama at a high school play.
The show was aimed at one goal to attack and try to discredit me. Jim Rothstein did an amazing job of voicing the facts on the case when they allowed him enough air time to do so. It is very clear that the staff on the show as well as Nancy Grace herself are not well versed in this type of kidnapping. Nor did they take into account that there are two other unsolved kidnappings in Des Moines.... Eugene Martin and Marc Allen.
Now for your panel of so called experts. What a joke. Who was that bird that stated " there are so many runaway's that there is no need to kidnap kids" or words to that effect???? If that were true then why are there so many kidnapped children and why would there be a need for Nancy Grace to be doing shows on this subject? Seems like an "oxy moron" to me .... Heavy on the MORON.
The psychologist appeared to be "in the bag" on the show. Interesting that she seems capable of diagnosing a person whom she has never met. I laughed out loud when I heard her say that "Noreen had suffered depression and wanted to believe all these things happened". I have never suffered from any condition at all. I could see from the beginning how this case was being handled so someone had to do something and it was me. I started the private investigation by hiring a P.I. within a few short weeks after the kidnapping and the rest is history.
When I told the police chief I was going to hire a P.I., he began yelling and screaming telling me I was not allowed to hire anyone. The police chief had a great deal to hide. When the private detectives started on the job the first day. The WDMPD arrested them in an act of protest. Unbelievable are the things this police chief did to try and stop my private investigation. However, none of that saw air time last night did it? The former police chief was relieved of his duties several months after Johnny's kidnapping. He had a history of being drunk on the job and prior to Johnny's kidnapping, 21 of his own staff filed a protest against him. So this was not a smooth operating police department at the time of Johnny's kidnapping.
During the period of time before the Franklin Scandal was exposed, there were parties involving minors, attended by that police chief. No wonder he was trying to stop Johnny's investigation. Shortly after he left office, he was arrested at Target for shop lifting a number of items. There were big headlines in the newspaper here following that arrest.
As Jim Rothstein stated on the show " he based his statements on experience". However, each time Jim stated the facts that actually happened, they quickly changed to the next subject of attack against me. I doubt that any of the so called panel of experts ever worked on a kidnapping case, except for Mark Klaas, who's daughter was kidnapped and murdered. I wonder if Mark Klaas was the guest on the show if he would have been treated in the same accusatory manner. Johnny's case is very different than most other cases.
WE HAVE NOW IDENTIFIED THE MAN IN THESE PHOTOGRAPHS AND KNOW WHAT HE HAS DONE. IF ANYONE HAS INFORMATION ON "DELTA" PLEASE CONTACT email@example.com
IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM NOREEN GOSH
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
It has come to my attention that there is an effort underway to "expose" my son, Johnny and force him out of his present location. I am NOT involved in this and do not approve. I think it is dangerous to not only him but to others.
I am releasing this statement so my son, Johnny and others, will know that I am not a part of this plan. Nor will I give my "DNA" or other requested information to those who are involved. By no means is this an admission that I'm giving up on seeing Johnny again but right now his safety as well as the safety of others is a prime concern. I will not be a part of jeopardizing their safety. The continued support and efforts of all those that have came forward over the years has been very significant in getting me to where we are today and I look forward to your continued support and prayers

December 17, 2008 - Adam Walsh Case
I am very happy to hear of the recent resolution on Adam
Walsh's case. I understand how frustrating it is for parents of a
missing child to not have closure. John Walsh has been very vocal
about the mistakes made in the investigation by the Hollywood, Fl.
Police Dept. In the end, they decided to review the evidence in the
case and determined that Ottis Toole was indeed guilty of murdering
July 12, 2008 - NEW INFORMATION!
I have had the following composite drawing for some time and am releasing it now due to new information on Johnny's case. You will see one photo/composite is from 1982 the second is the same man approximately 10 years later. There is further information concerning this man which will be released at a later time.
The second man involved in the kidnapping of Johnny Gosch, Sept. 5th, 1982. His name is Tony... He followed Johnny down the street shot Johnny with a stun gun and after he dropped to the ground, grabbed Johnny and threw him in the back seat of the kidnap car. The dark areas on his cheeks are "severe pock marks from acne scarring". This has been consistent in the description given by all witness's.
This is a updated version of Tony approximately ten years after Johnny's kidnapping, showing him with a different hairstyle. He is wanted in at least 4 other kidnappings and the children have never been found. The dark areas on his cheeks are "severe pock marks from acne scarring". This has been consistent in the description given by all witness's.

Most Recent Photo of Johnny Gosch
I received this photo recently, it is like so many others, as Johnny appears bound and gagged once again. However, this photo has something very significant in the background. It is a laundry bag from a "camp". The photo was taken in the early 1980's not long after my son was kidnapped. This photo appeared on a Russian Pedophile Website around Thanksgiving 2007 and sent to me a short time later. Someone has had it in their possession/collection for a very long time.
If there are viewers of my website who are familiar with this camp, please email me at: JGoschFoundation@aol.com I would appreciate any information you may have to share. I have obtained many photos of my son, as well as other boys which were taken in this same room. Apparently this location was used for some activities with children.

Johnny Gosch: 25 Years of Heart Break and Service
It's a story that catapulted Iowa into the national spotlight, changed state law and continues to draw awareness to human trafficking. It's a recurring nightmare for parents across the nation... and a living nightmare for Noreen Gosch that has unwillingly launched her into a life of public service.
On this day 25 years ago, Johnny Gosch left his home to work his Des Moines Register paper route. What happened after that has been the subject of speculation. According to Noreen Gosch, two men approached him, he was thrown into a vehicle and kidnapped.
September 5, 2007
You are loved and missed by all of your family. It is important for you to know that we have tried everything possible to bring resolution to your case, to make it safe for you to live your life. All of the information which we have researched and collected has been given to the FBI, it is in their hands now.....
If nothing is done then we will all know that they did not go forward with it.
My hope is that the latest report saying you are still alive is true and that one day we will be able to see each other again.
TWENTY FIVE YEARS LATER
September 5th, 2007 is the 25th anniversary of the kidnapping of my son Johnny Gosch. It is amazing how such a marking of time can many times still "feel like it was yesterday".
He was kidnapped on September 5th, 1982, while delivering his Des Moines Register Sunday paper. There were a number of witness's to the kidnapping who all saw the men and the car.
After 25 years.... This is what we now know:
1. Johnny was a victim of a human/child trafficking network.
2. He was taken for the purpose of satisfying pedophiles for a profit for those who took him.
3. Reports say he is still alive, living under another identity.... still fearing for his life after escaping from the network a number of years ago.
4. Many changes and progress have taken place since the plight of these missing children has been brought out to the public. This happens only because of the continued work by the parents of the missing and those who are assisting us.
5. Photos sent to me ARE MY SON..... they have all been verified. In addition to those photos I have received hundreds of other photos of children, some featured with pedophiles but all bound and gagged. Those photos have been given to the FBI and we are in hopes they will do something.
6. The work continues on Johnny's case as there has not yet been any resolution.
I want to thank all of the people who have assisted me during these long 25 years. The list is so long, it is impossible to name everyone but you all know who you are and what you have done to contribute. I am most grateful.

Britain, U.S. break up online pedophile ring
700 investigated; 31 children rescued as authorities shut global operation
Updated: 12:11 p.m. ET June 18, 2007
LONDON - British police, aided by U.S. authorities, have smashed a global Internet pedophile ring that broadcast live-streamed videos of children being abused, investigating more than 700 suspects worldwide and rescuing 31 children in a 10-month probe, officials said Monday.
Some 200 suspects are based in Britain, said the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Center, a government agency. Of the 31 children, some only a few months old, more than 15 were in Britain, the center said. British authorities would not give a breakdown of where the other suspects or children came from, but said more than half the suspects in Britain were already being prosecuted.
Authorities said they used surveillance tactics normally used against terrorism suspects and drug traffickers to infiltrate the pedophile ring at its highest level.
Officials said the United States, Canada and Australia were Britain’s main partners in the investigation, which involved agencies from 35 countries. The international investigation dated back to August 2006 until the ringleader’s sentencing Monday.
tip from Canada
A Canadian official said authorities there have arrested 24 Canadians and rescued seven Canadian children since late 2005.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement joined the British-led operation in December. U.S. officials declined to comment because their investigation is continuing in at least 12 states.
It was unclear whether any of the rescued children had been reported missing, but authorities said the investigation was not linked to the widely publicized disappearance of Madeleine McCann, a 4-year-old British girl who vanished nearly two months ago in southern Portugal.
Toronto police conducted online surveillance along with British police, said Detective Sgt. Kim Scanlan of the Toronto police sex crimes unit, who confirmed the Canadian arrests and rescues of children that began before the British-led probe.
a good day’
In Germany, police are investigating two men in connection with the breakup of the ring, the country’s Federal Crime Office said.
The host of the chat room, Timothy David Martyn Cox, 27, of Buxhall, who used the online identity “Son of God,” admitted to nine counts of possessing and distributing indecent images, authorities said.
Cox was given an indeterminate jail sentence Monday at a court in eastern England. That means he will remain in prison until authorities determine he is no longer a threat to children.
“Today’s verdict serves as a powerful warning to those using the Internet to facilitate the sexual exploitation of children,” said Jim Gamble, the child protection center’s chief executive.
Cox was identified after intelligence linking the chat room to Britain was passed on to the child protection center by Canadian authorities in August 2006. The center is an agency under the Home Office that is made up of officers with special experience in tracking and prosecuting sex offenders.
Cox also had been a member of a U.S.-based online pedophile ring shut down by U.S. authorities in March 2006, Gamble said.
After Cox’s arrest on Sept. 28, 2006, British, Canadian and Australian authorities were able to infiltrate the chat room and collect evidence on the other members. Officers posed as contributors and even pretended to be Cox, running the chat room for 10 days.
At no point did officers distribute illegal images.
Forensic teams examining Cox’s computer found 75,960 indecent and explicit images in addition to evidence that he had supplied 11,491 images to other site users.
A man described as Cox’s lieutenant, Gordon Mackintosh, tried to resurrect the chat room in January. Authorities in Britain, Canada, Australia and the U.S. again infiltrated the operation.
Upon Mackintosh’s arrest in January, authorities assumed his identity online and ran the chat room for three days while collecting information on offenders who traded images.
Mackintosh, 33, has pleaded guilty to 27 charges of making, possessing and distributing indecent images and videos. He is awaiting sentencing.

Police arrest woman linked to China baby trafficking
2 hours, 16 minutes ago
BEIJING (AFP) - A woman in China suspected of being involved in the trafficking of 118 baby girls has been arrested after four years on the run, state press reported Tuesday.
Ji Xiulan, believed to be aged in her 60s, had been a fugitive since the trafficking ring was busted in 2003 but was arrested in a village in central China's Henan province on June 15, the Beijing Times reported. Ji was suspected of having been involved in buying trafficked babies from southern China's Guangxi region, the report said.
The 2003 arrest of the ringleaders of the gang exposed a network of trafficking in baby girls that spread from Guangxi to Henan, Anhui and Hubei provinces in central and eastern China, the report said. The case broke when police found 28 drugged and tied-up baby girls -- none over three months old -- in bags on board a bus bound for northern cities. One of the babies died while being smuggled, reports at the time said.
In July 2004, 54 people from Yulin city in Guangxi region were convicted of trafficking 118 girls between 2001 and 2003. Two people from Yulin were sentenced to death over that case and more than 100 outside Guangxi were convicted, of whom at least one was executed, state press reports at the time said.
The case has been linked to China's "one child" family planning policy that has sharpened traditional values preferring boys over girls and leading to many mothers selling or giving away their baby daughters in the hopes of later having a son. Many defendants in the case refused to admit wrongdoing, insisting they were providing a humanitarian service as many of the trafficked girls went to childless couples in cities, earlier press reports on the scandal said.

UPDATE CONCERNING RECENT PHOTOS APPEARING ON MY WEBSITE
Over the past five months, I have received hundreds of photos There photos are of my son Johnny included, but also many other children. The children in the photos are bound & gagged. Upon close investigation of these photos, we have seen the following:
The physical, sexual, emotional abuse to children is continuing at an alarming rate in our country and world. One aspect is .... Child/Human Trafficking. Some are making a profit off from showing this material.... using other peoples children. Everyone who reads this should be angry and concerned. If they did this to my son, Johnny age 12 when he was kidnapped ... they can do it to your child next. There is nothing preventing it.. This type of criminal knows the laws are weak and most likely they would not be caught. I take particular exception to this because one of the kids they kidnapped and used was my son ...... Johnny Gosch.

I received the following photos which are very disturbing but we are posting them on the website because there are adults in the photos and we are in hopes someone might recognize the men shown. If you do recognize them, please write to me at

I have been contacted by many people who follow my website asking for me to post something concerning the kidnapping of the two boys in Missouri. I feel a great deal of compassion for both boys and their families after what has happened to them. There is still a great deal ahead for them concerning all of the legal issues but with the support of their families they will go on to live healthy productive lives.
James M. Rothstein, Ret. NYCPD Detective is an expert in the field of investigation of pedophile activity and crimes against children. Mr. Rothstein has been investigating Johnny's case for over ten years and has written a very comprehensive report on the ORGANIZED PEDOPHILIA AND THE CRIMINAL EXPLOITATION OF CHILDREN, which we no know as HUMAN TRAFFICKING. He is sharing this report, it will shed light upon the issue of missing and exploited children in all categories. Throughout the report, you will see that some names have been removed for legal reasons. Mr. Rothstein has also proposed needed legislation which is included in the report.
CONFIDENTIAL REPORT ON ORGANIZED
December 21, 2006
These are the most recent photos of Johnny which were sent to me. We estimate they were all taken within the first few months after he was kidnapped. It further supports the information we have indicating Johnny was taken for the purpose of "human trafficking". Each time I look at photos of him in this situation, the sadness spreads over me as I realize over and over how much my son has endured at the hands of these people. Johnny is one of many children who have been used in this manner. How can any of them sleep at night for what they do to our children.......
December 2, 2006
There are fetish groups, on yahoo and MSN, who appear to be obsessed with tying up young boys. Perhaps some of the members of these groups are having second thoughts about what the people behind the scenes do or are capable of serial and obsessive photographing of boys tied up. These men, who are driven by their unhealthy desires and fantasies trawl web sites such as Web shots and steal any photo they can find of kids in tied up fun situations (they do happen.) The parent innocently shares there photo only to have the photo stolen by fetishists who often pose as young adults or teens. They spend endless hours trawling Yahoo Images, Google Images, etc for any photo they can find of a kid tied up, handcuffed etc. Then they post them in public and private groups for purposes they probably do not entirely comprehend themselves.
What is much worse however is the serial photo's often taken by parents or much older siblings, relatives or care-givers. In many cases we are also finding children who have been kidnapped appearing on these web sites. Some of the kids have been identified recently. These photos often eventually become known on public pedophile fronts. This is an issue parents are going to need to confront as a culture of tolerance and acceptance appears to be occurring in regards to adults using children to pursue their sexual fantasies. They see as "ONLY LOOKING" is not a crime or sin.
Some members, of these groups however, are beginning to see things for what they really are.....a sick crime. They are opening their minds, not to the hidden people saying this is ok, it is part of what you are, it is art of the innocent aspect of your childhood. They are becoming savvy to the fact that there are pedophiles lurking in these groups or those who would benefit financially or otherwise. Some are now prepared to confront the fact that the people they thought were their friends, may be, and sometimes are, pedophiles. Many lies and half truths are told in relation to these photos and they are now seeing what these kinds of photos represent, or, what they wish them to represent. It is to these people who do have some conscience, who are bothered by this .....that I appeal for you to come forward, either anonymously, and make known what information you may have. It is to the members of these groups, I make this appeal.
Below this message are two more photos I have received recently. The first photo is my son, Johnny Gosch. The second photo is unidentified.

On October 30, 2006, I received this third picture of my son Johnny Gosch.

Who are these boys?
Why are they on a pedophile website?
If you any information about these children, please call The National Center for Missing
and Exploited children at 1-800-843-5678

From the day I posted the photo of the three boys the following has taken place.
I received emails from people saying I shouldn't have placed this photo on my website because it was disturbing. Then shortly after the middle boy was identified but no info could be released due to the parent not wanting publicity. I received emails telling me "YOU HAD BETTER POST WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS BOYS IDENTITY..... ASAP OR YOU WILL LOSE ALL CREDIBILITY". In other words a threat.
Approximately three weeks later, the mother of the boy in the middle did reconsider and wanted to tell her story. We placed a few paragraphs of information about David Johnson on the site.
Since that date, I have received a number of emails from people who seem to have issues concerning Patricia Johnson Holm. I have received threatening email and written attacks directed towards me.
My intent from the moment I received the photos was to identify the photos of the boys, who were found on a pedophile website, perhaps some people have lost sight of that part of this tragedy. We have received more photos of unidentified boys which have been turned over to the National Center For Missing Children for comparison in their database of missing children. Human trafficking is a huge problem, nearly 100,000 children yearly are trafficked. It is still my mission to continue protecting children and gaining information on the hundreds of children who are unidentified to date.
If anyone has any issues concerning Patricia or her son, it would be best if you contact her directly as she would be better able to answer your questions. Her email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org

Three weeks ago, we made contact with Patricia Johnson Holm, the mother of one of the boys in the photo which had been brought to my door. At that time she did not want additional publicity. Since that time she has seen the interview the Fla. Detective did with Fox TV/Greta Show and is shocked that the detective is again trying to discredit the photo and both of our sons. She has now reconsidered and is willing to share her story and the photo.

The detective from Florida has once again tried to convince the public that Johnny was not in the photo of the three boys, who were bound and gagged on a bed. We had this photo on my website for a time. Three weeks ago. we were contacted by the parents of two of the boys. We have verified that the children were missing /abducted and have removed that photo by request of the parents. We also have an eye witness who identified all three boys,(including Johnny) the communication was made possible by the attorney representing the witness.
From the moment I received the photos I stated that it was my intent to try and locate the parents to bring some peace to them. We have done that and we are now concentrating on resolving the origin of Johnny's photos. The other parents do not want further press coverage at this time in their lives so we are respecting their wishes.

Ex-investigator: No proof photos aren't
"It's been like searching for a needle in a haystack," former detective Nelson Zalva said Thursday. "We're talking cases that were kept on index cards here." Zalva said he wished any of the youths in the photos or the anonymous person who originally tipped police to his years-old investigation would step forward to help prove the photos predated Johnny Gosch's disappearance. Noreen Gosch, meanwhile, was back on the offensive with authorities this week, urging police to explore any and all leads related to the photos. Among them:
Jeff Tarpinian, a spokesman for the FBI in Omaha, Neb., could not be reached Thursday for comment.
Lt. Jeff Miller, a spokesman for the West Des Moines Police Department, said police remain in contact with state and federal authorities, but he said he didn't believe any new leads in the case were being pursued at the moment. At The Des Moines Register's request, Miller released to the media a copy of the anonymous letter postmarked Sept. 6 from Tampa, Fla., alerting Des Moines police to Zalva's old investigation. "Gentlemen," it read. "Someone has played a reprehensible joke on a grieving mother...."
There was an investigation concerned with that picture, made by the Hillsborough County sheriff's office. No charges were filed, and no wrongdoing was established. The lead detective on the case was named Zalva. Although workers at the sheriff's department reviewed more than 300 cases from 1979 on microfilm, Zalva said, they cannot find the incident report or the photocopies of photos from the criminal investigation that he said eventually led nowhere.
The digitally reproduced photos sent to Gosch and several people close to the case the weekend of Aug. 27 generated a surge of public interest and a range of claims by individuals who purported to know what happened to the paperboy whose face became synonymous with child abductions in the 1980s. Gosch said it's important police look into all allegations, regardless of how strange they might seem.
"People get real caught up in what I say, but I think maybe they've forgotten what's like to be me," she said. "I really thought the police would jump into this with both feet, but they haven't. "Here you have a kidnapped child on a pedophilia Web site. ... C'mon, boys, let's get busy."
The Register has not published the photos that Gosch said she received last month because it was not clear where the images came from....

There is also information mentioned about another Kidnapped Boy ... Jacob Wetterling from Minnesota.

We know his photo has appeared on a number of porn sites .... if anyone has more information please contact me through the email address on this website. email@example.com Thank you so much... Noreen
INFORMANT MESSAGE (Special Thanks from us to you...)
(Letter sent to the police)
Dear Captain Richards;
I have information about the Johnny Gosch
case. I was watching the Donnie Deutech show on MSNBC and noticed the
pictures of Johnny Gosch and noticed the brand that was placed on his
left arm and I remembered a similar brand I saw on another boy that I
saw from a cropped child porn site. The photo involved two boys
kissing laying prone on a bed. The boy on the bottom had a similar
brand on his left arm. This boy had a striking resemblance to Jacob
Wetterling. His hair was dyed black.

WEST DES MOINES POLICE ARE WRONG and PEDOPHILE SITE IDENTIFIED
THIS IS JOHNNY GOSCH
The West Des Moines police contacted us and said " their lead with the Florida Detective is falling flat, he can't produce anything, no names, files or any information.". I told them this would happen prior to their press release, however, they ran with the story before they had any proof. The detective in Florida can not provide anything, no reports, case number ..... nothing! The detective in Florida is not credible.
This site was discovered by our investigators. There are at least 83 boys tied and gagged on this website. Why are the kidnapped boys from West Des Moines being shown on this website? There are pictures of older men with these young boys. Is the owner of this website domain a pedophile?
Johnny Gosch's picture was seen on this website. The front page of the website is trying to hide the contents of this site. http://www.jacobstales.com/ . Click on the pictures below to be taken to actual photos supposedly run by an active pedophile serving other pedophiles.
Missing for Decades
PART I: The West Des Moines Police released a statement, indicating that they received an anonymous note saying " there was an investigator in Florida who had investigated and identified the boys in the recent photo, which they appeared bound and gagged in 1979". They also stated this photo had been on the internet since 1979.
Unfortunately, this press release caused a media storm and much confusion. At no time had he ever seen the photo of Johnny
Gosch ... the black/white photo below. We also know that the internet as we know it
..... did not exist in 1979.
PART II: This media clip ran on Channel 3, Omaha Nebraska
This is a poster for a missing boy in Des Moines. His name is "Marc Allen"....... He is the third missing boy in a six year period in Des Moines Iowa. The first was Johnny Gosch in 1982, the second was Eugene Martin in 1984 and Mark Allen in 1986. This boy did not receive an investigation by police nor any publicity. We want to know WHY ... WHY .... WHY?

This photo was sent to us ... explaining it was one of the "perps" who had molested my son and others. We gave it to the police and the Missing Children's Center. They told us the man is "dead and there is a device around his neck called a ligature". They are currently investigating to also learn the identity of this man. Again, if anyone viewing my website knows who this man might be.... please contact me below.

Shocking News has broke quickly on the Johnny Gosch case. The website was taken down for 36 hours due to high-traffic volume which blew out a server in Las Angeles. That is now taken care of. We hope that you will support The Johnny Gosch Foundation and its mission to assist others in knowledge and empowerment to stop the blatant human trafficking problem we have not only in this country but in all the world; a business estimated in the Billions of Dollars.
This website or blog will be updated rapidly over the next week as we try to respond to the high traffic. There are books for sale and donations accepted to help fund the continuing mission of The Johnny Gosch Foundation. We are upgrading our servers once again and hopefully the ability to take online 128-bit SSL secure transactions as we used to offer. For now, Please contact us directly at:
