January 28–The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public for help in locating 3-year-old Xander William Quigley, a Palm Coast child missing and believed to be endangered since his mother took him and allegedly joined a fugitive who escaped from a prison work-release program in Volusia County Friday.

The mother is Natasha Quigley, 24. She allegedly joined Gary Bullock, 24, after he removed his ankle monitor and left his job in Daytona Beach. He was serving an eight-year prison sentence for various felonies, including grand theft, robbery and burglary at a work-release center operated by Tomoka Correctional Institution.

At 3 p.m. Saturday afternoon, the Flagler sheriff’s office responded to 94 Port Royal Lane in Palm Coast to investigate a theft. According to the investigation, Frank Carr, the 70-year-old caller and father of Natasha Quigley, told deputies that the day before he and his 53-year-old wife Kimberley returned from a trip to Orlando to find that Quigley, who had been living with them, had packed all her belongings and left. Carr noticed $500 in cash missing from his room and checks, one of which was cashed for $1,200 at a bank in Daytona Beach on Jan. 21.

Carr later noticed that his Ruger .357 stainless steel revolver and a box of 50 count .357 hollow point ammunition was missing from his bedroom closet, the incident report notes. Carr said the behavior is not normal for Quigley. He does not believe she will hurt or harm herself or anyone else, he told deputies.

A release the sheriff’s office issued Tuesday states that the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office has been working with the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office on the case. Xander was entered today into a national data base (NCIC) as a missing and endangered

Xander is described as 3 feet tall and weighing approximately 35 pounds. He has hazel eyes and short blonde hair in a crew cut fashion.

Quigley was last seen driving her white 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt bearing Florida tag # EUJ-L31. Bullock is a wanted fugitive and is believed to be armed. Quigley is wanted for allegedly aiding in Bullock’s escape. He is 5’6” and weighs approximately 173 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes and a tattoo on his right arm. Quigley, who lives in Bunnell, is facing a charge of aiding escape. She’s 5’6 and weighs approximately 175 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes.

    Soo let me get this straight. This boy has been missing for days and is only now entered into NCIC as missing and endangered??? What is this sheriff doing???? As a Leo and member of an amber alert squad I can tell you that this is a huge mistake by Manfre! This child should have been entered as soon as he was discovered missing. Period!!

    Prayers going up that this poor child is found. I hope Social Services gets involved once he is located.

    Once again our ‘LIBERAL” criminal justice system comes back to bite us in the ‘BLANK”.

    You gotta love it, 8 year sentence for multiple felonies and allowed to do work release.

    Do you think when Bullock or Quigley submitted to ‘background ” checks before they stole the gun?
