    Story

    Jodie Smith is a loving father who travelled to Thailand in February after his estranged wife abducted their son Joleon in November 2017.

    He was absolutely devastated and feared he'd never see his son again as she refused any contact or to take any calls.

    In February 2018 he flew to Thailand to try to find Joleon. When he tracked him down to a remote village he was being cared for by his 10 year old Aunt and had a nasty foot injury. He also asked his father to bring him home to the UK. Joleon has a British passport and is a British Citizen.

    When Jodie took his son to the airport at Bangkok he was arrested for child abduction of his own son.

    We're now appealing for any donations, no matter how big or small to fight his legal case there .He's currently being held in a jail, we have no idea of conditions and no way of contacting him.

    Please help us in any way you can. Lidia, Joleon's grandmother.

    We're now appealing for any donations, no
