ROBERT ‘JERRY’ PFEIFER AND SASHA HUMMEL – WELCOME HOME!!!!

ROBERT “JERRY” PFEIFER AND SASHA HUMMEL

I couldn’t be happier to welcome home Jerry and Sasha!  After a year of fighting, searching, crying and laughing, we had the honor of seeing these beautiful boys back in their father’s arms.  The smiles shared between fathers and sons, well, they are priceless, and if hope had an appearance, those smiles are what hope would look like!

In the next few weeks we will release an article speaking with each Bob and Larry and talking about their journey to bring their sons home.  For now though, I know we all can respect the private time they are spending reconnecting with their boys.  Bob and Larry have not disappeared (we’d find them if they tried anyway 😉 LOL), they are simply spending every moment with their sons, and they are indescribably grateful for the love and support each and every one of you has shared with them.

So – it is my delight to type these next words on behalf of the Lighting Their Way Home Family …

WELCOME HOME JERRY AND SASHA!!

Jerry and Bob Pfeifer AND Sasha and Larry Hummel - HOME TOGETHER!

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has filed felony criminal charges against Maria Pfeifer for two counts of Child Detention With Right to Custody.  On September 12, 2013, a federal warrant for Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution was also filed for Maria.  In addition, the DA’s Office has also filed a warrant allowing Maria to be extradited if found outside of California.

Jerry and Sasha’s abduction sparked an international manhunt for the boys.  The FBI is working with local law enforcement agencies in the European Union to locate the boys and Maria and Interpol Notices have also been issued for the three.  Prosecutors have attempted to retrieve the boys through the Hague Convention, but have been unsuccessful as the process requires the knowledge of the abductor’s location.

Over a year later there has been no word of the boys’ whereabouts, but their fathers remain active in the fight to bring them home.  Both Bob Pfeifer and Larry Hummel have court-ordered permanent sole legal and physical custody of their sons.  Each man has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on the efforts to locate their sons and bring Jerry and Sasha home.

Larry and Bob agree that the hardest part is the not knowing.  Larry Hummel stated “It would be one thing if we knew he was safe, if there was some communication, anything – a photo or an email from her saying ‘I’m in Slovakia.  You’re never seeing your kids again.’ At least I’d know she’s on the planet Earth and the kids are safe, but we’ve had zero communication since July of 2012.”  Robert talks about his worries as well, saying “I wake up at night worrying for my son, if he’s scared, has he lost hope, is he being hurt?  When the seasons change, I feel he knows more time has passed.  Hopefully he hasn’t lost hope … I know he’s waiting for me to get him.”

According to Larry, Maria does not believe that the boys needed their fathers in their lives, and things quickly turned nasty during a custody battle over Sasha.

Here is the thing that really bothers me, if Maria Pfeifer is tried and convicted on both charges, she only faces up to 6 years in prison.  Does that really seem like justice?  Does that make up for all the time Bob and Larry have lost with their sons?  Does that atone for the emotional trauma which she has inflicted on Jerry and Sasha by snatching them from their homes, from their fathers, and forcing them to live in hiding?  I have to ask, is this the message we want to send about how seriously we take child abduction?

Jerry and Bob Pfeifer

Jerry and Bob Pfeifer

Many parental abductions result in little to no jail time, so I don’t have to wonder as to why parental abductions are so prolific.  We are not holding the abductors accountable.  We are not requiring these people to abide by the laws of our society, and by doing this, we are failing to protect these children.  We are failing to keep them safe, to allow them a happy and free childhood, and that is something that I am just not OK with.  That is not something that I am just willing to blindly accept, it is something that needs to change, and we need to fight for that change.

Sasha and Larry Hummel

Sasha and Larry Hummel

So fight we will.  What we are asking for is the public’s assistance in spreading the information surrounding Jerry and Sasha’s case.  The more we show their story and the more we educate others on the details of the case, the better chance we have of one day bringing the boys home.

If you have any information regarding the abduction of Jerry Pfeifer and Sasha Hummel, please immediately contact the Los Angeles Police Department at 1-877-275-5273.  Those in Europe can call 00-800-0843-5678 or dial 116000.  Please make the call, even if you only think may know something.  You never know when you will have the information needed to bring two beautiful little boys home.

Jerry and Sasha lived together with their mother when their father’s did not have them.  They are extremely close, with Jerry being very protective of Sasha, so we need to bring these boys home together.

It is also important to remember that these little boys are kind, loving, bright little men that have been thrust into the middle of a nightmare at the hands of a person who was supposed to be protecting them.  Jerry and Sasha are more than just photos on a missing person poster.  They are unique and full of promise … so members of the Lighting Their Way Home family, allow me to introduce you to Jerry Pfeifer and Sasha Hummel.

Jerry Pfeifer is a sweet, thoughtful, affectionate young man who brings so much joy to everyone that knows him.  Jerry’s favorite colors are red and blue, his favorite toy is Legos.  What parent of little boys doesn’t have a pile of Legos somewhere in their house right now?!  Jerry takes his Legos another step further though, and builds strategy games with them.  He is clearly a bright child who enjoys a challenge.

Jerry loves to read, everything from Harriet the Spy and Tin Tin to Phantom Tollbooth.  He enjoy writing stories, which you can read on the website his father has created for him, the links will be provided below.

Bob Pfeifer With Jerry's Pets

Jerry also loves science, and has taken to a fascination with outer space and satellites.  But his true passion, the one thing that you must know if you want to know Jerry, is that this young man has all the make-up it takes to be an entomologist.  He loves insects and reptiles, and actually keeps some as pets.  He is extremely fond of his two bearded dragons, “Spiky” and “CherryJerry” (try saying CherryJerry and not smiling – it’s impossible!), and his tortoise “Speedy”.  His love and drive to understand everything in nature is incredible considering that he is only 10, his passion goes well beyond that of the natural curiosity of a little boy.  Jerry’s idea of a good time is catching any animals that will hold still long enough for him to grab, but the most incredible part of this, is the appreciation Jerry has for each of these animals.

Jerry’s father, Bob, has shared one particular story about Jerry’s bearded dragon, “Spiky”, that I just have to share with you.  Jerry has a pretty special friend, you actually may know him, his name is Alice Cooper.  Jerry has known Alice and his manager Shep Gordon since he was a baby, and they are like family to him.  Here is the story Bob has shared:
“So Alice was playing LA a few years ago and though the gig was too late for him to stay up, we all considered having Jerry come down for a sound check.  Jerry being Jerry loves Alice’s snake and all things Alice does with the snake.  So when Shep called about the gig – Jerry wanted to know if Alice had his snake.  I asked Shep and conveyed to Jerry that Alice didn’t have his snake.

Jerry said, “Let me talk to Shep and Alice.”

I gave him the phone.

Jerry said, “I will come to the show and let Alice use Spiky.”

Shep said, “What’s Spiky?”

Jerry said, “It’s my bearded dragon.  It’s no problem.  He is a good bearded dragon who likes Alice.”

Shep proceeded to laugh and tell Jerry about how stage shows work and that they hadn’t planned on a bearded dragon.

Jerry said, “OK, but Spiky is a smart bearded dragon and could learn at sound check.  I’ll see you Uncle Shep.  Tell Alice to call me if he needs my bearded dragon.””

That story will make you instantly fall in love with this blonde haired, blue eyed boy that has a smile built for breaking hearts.  How can you not love a child who has offered to allow Alice Cooper to use his bearded dragon at a show – you can’t!

Jerry also has a side to him that shows just what an old, wise soul he has.  He likes watching older movies, and thinks black and white is better than color.  He cares tremendously about homeless people he sees, and he doesn’t understand why homelessness exists.  Jerry enjoys playing chess and is a very artistic and creative little man.  It would seem that music comes as second nature to Jerry and Bob says that he has a unique sense of ear for melody.  When Jerry was abducted, he was learning to play the piano, and he absolutely loved learning to play.  Another story Bob recalled was the day when he and Jerry were at Trader Joe’s and heard “Bittersweet Symphony” by The Verve.  When he and Jerry went home, Jerry went straight to the piano and figured out how to play the song on the spot.

When I asked Bob what he would say to Jerry if he could, he simply responded “That I love him and have been searching for him.”  I can’t help but feel that with the love and compassion that Bob showered on Jerry each day, that there is that unspoken bond between father and son.  That Jerry knows that his father will never stop searching, and that Jerry feels his love each moment of everyday, because a love like these two shared, is a love that grows in the soul and is impossible to destroy.

Jerry Pfeifer

So here is a simple suggestion if you find yourself wondering what else you can do to honor and support Jerry besides sharing his story, volunteer at your local soup kitchen, take a moment to step back and watch the smile you bring to other’s when you reach out a helping hand.  Take your children and grandchildren to the beach, or the forest, or even the backyard, and spend the afternoon catching and examining nature’s little creatures with the same wonder as you had when you were a child.

Jerry needs us to fight.  He needs us to fight to bring him home.  Even more importantly he DESERVES to be fought for.  Jerry is missed, and loved, and I am asking all of you to fight with me, and to not stop fighting until he is back in his father’s arms.  I know we can do this, and it is once again time to …

Sasha Hummel is a beautiful, bright eyed little boy that just shines with promise and innocence.  It is easy to see the love that this little man showers on all who know him.  As Sasha has grown, so has his personality, and what this has grown into is incredible.  He is a sweet little boy that loves the color orange.  He is a big fan of Mac N Cheese and loves the movie The Iron Giant.

Sasha is one of those little boys whose smile and laugh are just so incredibly endearing, that you are instantly compelled to do anything that will invoke that smile, that will get that laugh only a little boy can have.

The life and sweetness that makes this little man who he is, is very evident.  Once you take a moment to get to know Larry, and the love he has for his son, you will instantly see exactly how Sasha became the amazing little boy that he is.  Larry loves his son more than words can describe.  Seeing photos of the two is heart warming.  Take a look for yourself, and you will notice that in each photo of Sasha and Larry – Larry is looking at Sasha with this incredible wonder, amazement and pure love.  You can see the joy Sasha brings to Larry, and the joy Larry brings to Sasha.  There are few looks in this world that rival the look of a father and son staring into each other’s eyes with laughter on their lips.

Sasha is a vibrant little boy who loves to play sword fight, which of course comes from the love of his favorite toy, his plastic sword.  Who wouldn’t want to jump around on the furniture giggling until your stomach hurts dodging plastic swords for claim to a treasure chest?!  Sasha is the type of child that makes parenting easy.  Larry shares how kind his little man is, and just how easy he is to be around.  He makes the world turn.

When I asked Larry what he would like to say to his son, he said “Your Dad misses you so much and can’t wait to hold you again.”  I think that says it all right there.

We need to bring Sasha home, home to a father who will kiss him softly and tuck him in at night after reading Goodnight Moon.  Home to a family that just isn’t complete without him.  Home to his father’s embrace and protective love.  Sasha needs us to fight.  He is a little boy, and he needs us advocating to bring him home.  Sasha needs the best fighting for him, and I happen to have the privilege of being surrounded by the best.  So I am asking each of you, each member of the Lighting Their Way Home family to fight for Sasha.  Spread his story and share his smile.  Let’s do what we do best, let’s …

  1. Parental abductions always bother me the most. In cases where the noncustodial parent is violent or any type of threat to the children’s life or safety deserves to be treated as a normal kidnapping. But there is always that small voice in the back of my head that asks “could u survive every day with only having visitation with your children, instead of being with them every day?” and “what length would you go to have your children with you every day?” I know that doesn’t really pertain to this case at all & these dads deserve their children back! But I have read parent abduction cases where the mom lost custody for ridiculous reasons such as the dad had a lawyer & she couldn’t afford one or the dad had more “financial” means than the mom which meant he could give them a better life. It is then that I always find myself asking those questions. I am a mother like you have described yourself as being. My children are my world; I cant imagine only seeing them on weekends. Although I wouldn’t risk jail time or risk losing the ability to see my kids at all, in the cases I just described (not the ones on ur website) I part of me can somewhat sympathize with the moms I described who lost custody for unjust reasons and felt they had no choice but to take their children and run. I wake up every morning thanking god for my kids & go to bed every night thanking him for them. I always say my 4 kids make up the 4 pieces of my heart and I don’t think I could ever survive if one of those pieces wasnt with me day in and day out. Of course, I’m lucky enough to have their dad in the home with me but I’m not ashamed to admit if we weren’t together, I would struggle sending them off for visitation with their dad but I would still do it bc they deserve their dad as much as their mom. I know it doesn’t relate much to a particular case, I was just wondering it I was the only one who felt sympathy for moms who wanted their kids full time, lost custody for unjust reasons & felt they had no choice but the hide? But sympathy doesn’t mean it’s right bc disappearing like that, leaving the dads & other family members to worry & all the lies she must teach her kids in order to stay hidden. I just meant that I can understand the desperation, the want & need to have my babies with me! But none of the cases you have posted are like this I don’t think.

  2. Thank you for sharing valuable information. Nice post. I enjoyed reading this post. The whole blog is very nice found some good stuff and good information here Thanks..Also visit my page chess beginners.

  3. i am glad they got their sons back, but what do you expect when you marry somebody way young, way better looking, from a poverty stricken country and additionally, you are old and not a looker…..scam…..they only got their sons back because they had money

  4. Firat off i knew the morher here in los angeles. She was and is a great mother to those boys. Those boys adore her. Jerrys dad was a convicted felin and sashas dad is a nut job. Those two exes went against her and made her life a living hell. She is a mother and a mother will always protect her young by any means. Maria was always with those boys at parks playdated bookstores and all. So before u all judge. Take a look at the real deal the low life fathera who were never there and all of the sudden they want to be father of the year. Pathetic!!!

    • You clearly are not educated about what abduction is and the abuse it inflicts on the children.
      I am not going to engage with your stupidity or name calling, it is tacky and says more about you than those you are so eager to slander.
      Bob’s legal past in no way reflects negatively on his ability to be the INCREDIBLE father he is to Jerry. He is a great man, a man who I consider a good friend, and I am proud and honored to know him. The same goes for Larry. He is also a great man, probably one of the kindest, most thoughtful men I have ever met. I will clearly say that I support both Bob and Larry unconditionally, in all of their endeavors.
      Bob, Larry – you know I love the boys and you both very much – thank you for allowing me the honor of getting to know you and calling you a friend!

  5. A very sad story for all involved. What part of slovakia did Maria come from? This story should not negatively reflect on a very noble and honorable slovak people.

    • Larry – this in no way reflects badly on the citizens of Slovakia. In fact without the assistance and compassion of the people of Slovakia, we may not have located the boys when we did. The Slovakian media was outstanding and wonderful in assisting Bob and Larry in their time of need and I know that they are exceptionally grateful for everything that was done for them. I personally know many Slovaks and when I asked for their assistance in posting flyers etc, they were more than happy to help and wanted to do all they could. The only thing this case reflects on Slovakia, is that they are a country who clearly will not condone nor shelter international parental abductors. They are not a place of refuge for criminals, and Slovakia is standing side by side with us in this fight to say no more. If you check out Jerry and Sasha’s FB pages, you’ll see that they have hundreds of Slovakian supporters and friends, and the gratitude Bob and Larry have repeatedly expressed to them. I hope this puts your mind at ease!

  6. I was involved in the case and run an organization for finding missing children. globalmissingchildrenfund.org

    I got to admit the fact that the father never called me to say thanks explains it all,
    -We spent extensive long hours and late night calls supporting Bob Pfeifer
    -Our organization suggested the use of social media and web approach, using posters, pressuring the kidnappers family like we did in similar cases in South Africa and around the world
    -Suggested using our recovery expert to fly to Europe stir leads and meets family members of kidnapper.
    -met with local friends of the kidnapper searching for clues -getting informants to forward the emails to the FBI [probably biggest break], -Using our State Department contacts to pressure Slovakia Embassy/Consulate
    -scoured thru faces and leads to find a particular suspected co-conspirator
    -aided with a Congressman’s office to pressure the Feds to get the warrant-contacting family members and their communities
    – the list goes on-even comforting Bob when he attended an entertainment industry event and was afraid to face his peers from his felony charges!

    Bob never said thanks and the story on ABC 20/20 was “hollywoodized” because when we met Bob he was a wounded dad with no leads and no strategy, didn’t think about social media like the sites we directed him to from other cases we solved…….

    so the satisfaction our organization gets is that we helped Gerry & Sasha the kids because they still deserve to be with their dads.Founder of Global Missing Children Fund

  7. Just saw ya on the view. Congratulations!

  8. GOD BLESS 2 amazing dads that spent countless money, time, and mental anguish to pursue and win the full custody of their sons ! I’m appalled that Maria only received probation and money repayment! What a flaw in the american justice system! She comes to this country and uses her looks, and scheming ways to gain the affections of 2 men that had money AND ….of course…. had to…lo… have their children!! She then after giving birth to two now American born citizens breaks our laws and cause emotional damage to not only the men but her OWN two boys…THAT SHE PROFESSES TO LOVE …. by keeping them from their father’s and growing their hair long as to look like girls and change their names to girls !!! Without a doubt she has proven to be a scheming narcissist !!! Whose money was she draining while on the run? She should serve lots of time!! Let this case and many others be true testament of the BEWARE MEN OF YOUNG, NATURAL LOOKING, QUIET, WOMEN FROM OTHER COUNTRIES WHEN ENTERING INTO MARRIAGE ! THIS COULD HAPPEN AND DOES MORE TIMES THEN IMAGINED!! CHECK THE STATS !!

  9. Alright, tell me how this makes sense. For starters, both boys are automatic dual citizens of both Slovakia and the United States(any child of a Slovak citizen, parents married or not, is Slovak also) and had every legal right to reside not only in Slovakia but throughout the European Union,which means they were in France legally at the time they were located. Yes the mother should not have just vanished off the face of the Earth with her sons, without filing for custody in either Slovakia or the United States, leaving people to assume the worst, but her reckless actions regarding custody do not justify claims that she was dangerous to the wellbeing of her sons or ever abused her sons in any way. Her rash choice to flee and conceal her sons do not justify her being traumatically arrested before the eyes of her children without a chance to say goodbye, denied the rights to do process, stripped of all parental rights to her children, and forcibly deported from the United States never to see her sons again. As a European man this is appalling to me and a huge error. If my wife had ever absconded to her native country, United States with our children, despite my severe measures to prevent this by solely possessing all of our dual citizen children’s identification documents, while I would certainly want my children returned to Europe I would NEVER agree to my children’s mother being confronted and arrested in front of my children’s eyes at their school. I would not agree to my children being taken to some godforsaken orphanage and psychologically traumatized more by being deprived, regardless of how temporarily, of both parents in the care of strangers. Lastly I would never dream of and most likely would never be permitted to by local laws and the Rights of The Child standards, to completely deprive my children of their mother and get her deported permanently so she cannot even visit, once I had flown the children back to Europe to me. I would have a nanny and bodyguard keeping a very close eye on her while she visited with our children, but she absolutely would see them, because they were her children too.
    What an evil and unhuman country the United States is! This is custody case is a travesty and nothing to celebrate, because 2 children have been denied their own mother!!! This is child abuse of the highest degree!!!
