Retired firefighter finds missing son in Amsterdam

Many people might be aware of the abduction retired firefighter, Ken Thonpson’s son, Andrew. 

Ken’s primary focus recently has been to reunite with Andrew and ensure his safe return.

This morning fellow firefighters, friends and family of Ken, woke to the fantastic news that Andrew has been found.  It is understood that Andrew came to the notice of authorities when he was enrolled for school.

Ken is now in Amsterdam awaiting clearance to see Andrew for the first time in nearly three years, and sort out his return legally.

Ken has been through alot, with he and his son having much to go through yet.

On behalf of the FBEU, and firefighters across NSW, we wish Ken and his son Andrew a safe and happy reunion.

The FBEU has made contact with Ken, for those who would like to also do so, the following email has been circulated:
