U.S. Marshals Need Help Finding Missing Child
Plano, TX - The U.S. Marshals are seeking the public’s assistance in locating a missing 11-year old boy, William Spencer. Spencer was allegedly abducted by his mother, Susan O’Connor, in May 2009 and is believed to possibly be in the Jupiter, Florida area.

In 2009, after being notified that custody of Spencer was going to be awarded to the child’s father, O’Connor allegedly disappeared with boy who was 4-years old at the time. O’Connor is currently wanted on a felony charge of interference with child custody out of Collin County, Texas.

Spencer has been featured as a missing child by several national databases including the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. It is possible that O’Connor may have taken steps to change the physical appearance of herself and Spencer.

Do not attempt to apprehend or approach O’Connor. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the U.S.Marshals Service by calling the National Communications Center at 1-800-336-0102 or the U.S. Marshals Service West Palm Beach Office at (561) 651-1827. Callers can remain anonymous. A cash award is being offered for information directly leading to the apprehension of O’Connor and the recovery of William Spencer.
