TFinn... Chances are people would be more like!y to spot the mother.

One of the things people do when they abduct children is to cross-dress them. Everyone's looking for an 8-yo boy, so slap a dress on him, and maybe a wig, and keep going.

Good thinking Sam, wig on Mom would work as well. Child protection may be involved when it comes to his picture?
