In this complicated story, some believed that Alex could not travel back to the United States because of some sort of legal restriction. It’s more complicated than that.
Alex and his family love living in St Kitts and don’t want to move back to the United States. Who wouldn’t want to live on a Caribbean island?
Until Alex was 18, He absolutely could not travel anywhere. He was listed as missing in the US and by Interpol until he was 26.
Any border he crossed would have triggered an immediate alert and resulted in his detention:
Alex’s status as a missing person for over 15 years creates problems for background checks and security clearances. While traveling, he was detained and asked questions by US and international authorities.
Alex’s dad is really sick. Because of this, he has to help his younger siblings get to school and do other things his dad can’t do. This makes it hard for me to travel for very long. His dad has not been able to leave the tiny island of St Kitts since he returned from Bulgaria in 2009. His dad is completely trapped here and has been for over 12 years unable to get the medical care he needs.
His TV interview states:
25-year-old Aarys Hower is seeking help to be able to travel back to the U.S.
Hower and his father are unable to travel back to the United States because of a custody battle that went too far.
