Father still has hope for two missing children


Troy Turner recalls the last time he played with his two children in the park.

“That was my princess…she was my princess; she’s as sweet as can be…and then Jacob- that kid didn’t have an angry bone in his body- he didn’t have a bad side to get on – he just always smiled,” said Sarah, and Jacob Hoggle’s Father, Troy Turner.

Sarah and Jacob Hoggle vanished nearly two years ago.

They were last seen in September of 2014 with their mother, Catherine Hoggle in Gaithersburg. Sarah was just three years old, while Jacob was two years old at the time of their disappearance.

“In my heart I feel like they are still out there or I probably wouldn’t be standing here and that’s a survival mode. I know mentally when I think about it there’s a good chance that they’re not as well so we have to continue on both ends,” said Turner.

Catherine has been deemed mentally incompetent to stand trial, and while she says her children are safe; she has not given authorities any information as to their whereabouts since her arrest in September of 2014.

Hoggle is currently institutionalized.

“She’s told me herself that she’s being advised to remain incompetent, and she explained the system- and right now as long as she does it …she’s going to continue to be a patient and be protected more so than my children – she has more rights than my kids have,” said Turner.

Although Troy doesn’t know how this will end, his says his children deserve one thing…

“One way or another my kids deserve to be brought home no matter what condition they are in; no matter what it is, they deserve to be brought home,” added Turner.

Troy says he will not give up until his two children, Jacob and Sarah are found.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
