On Sunday, November 27, 2016 at about 7 p.m. Humboldt County Deputy Sheriffs responded to the 4100 block of Hillside Ct. in Eureka for a reported child abduction by parent.  The reporting party told deputies when she was in another part of her residence, Anthony Lux (31) unexpectedly left with his daughter, 4 year old Allison Shirey.  The reporting party provided court documentation stating she has temporary physical and legal custody of Allison.   Lux did not have permission to take Allison from the residence.

It was later discovered Lux received a ride from the residence on Hillside Ct. to St. Joseph’s Hospital.  Lux did not check into the hospital and has not been seen since.  Lux has connections in Alderpoint, Eureka, McKinleyville, Montegue (Siskyou County) and Chico (Butte County).  Lux’s whereabouts are unknown at this time.

Anthony Lux is a white male adult, 5’8”, 160 lbs, with brown hair and brown eyes.  He was last seen wearing an olive colored pea coat, black pants, and black shoes.

Allison Shirey is a 4 year old girl, 3’ tall, 50 lbs, with blue eyes and brown hair.  She was last seen wearing pink pants with owls on them and a white shirt with blue and pink flowers.

A Be-On-the-Lookout (BOLO) was issued for Lux.  Anyone with information for the Sheriff’s Office regarding this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Office at 707-445-7251 or the Sheriff’s Office Crime Tip line at 707-268-2539.



  • will keep an eye out

  • Wow I’m hoping somebody will see them.praying for the.safety of the little girl.

  • Vehicle description?

  • Cant an Amber alert be put out? then everybody in the state will get a message on their cell phone

  • It’s surely painful to be a parent without rights. Yet I am always saddened by the short term thinking. Invariably the ‘kidnapping’ parent is caught. Then what was days or maybe weeks of ‘quality time’ is followed by years or likely decades of loss of connection and time together for BOTH parent and child as the elder one is incarcerated. Get Support instead of taking this destructive action. Please!!

  • This is my biggest fear. My DDs father is mentally unstable but still sees her and this is my nightmare. I can’t even imagine.

  • Honeydew Bridge Chump

    Wears a grower uniform, hope the child is safe.

    Keeping children safe from hostage taking growers is priority.

    Until the community stands up, asks The Marines for help in rooting them from their holes- people will suffer and growers will take children as hostages.

    Humboldt needs a Marine Division standing by to negate these terrorists and chop their devil’s lettuce to the ground.

  • Family courts do it again.

    All those ‘missing children’ on the wall at the Walmart entrance; abducted by non-custodial parent.

    Divorce court is a whole industry unto itself.

  • The child support system is soo corrupt and the interest just builds up and builds up!
    Our country is in chaos because of the way we offer help to the mom’s and babies… No abortion… No welfare… No man to be there ( you have to have an absent parent) … So because she had the kid he gets kicked to the curb and harassed by child support entities with interest building…. She has all the power.. Most likely an attitude and he probably wants to be a family.
    The men of the households of this country are being emasculated and it is straight from the pit of hell!!

  • Fathers don’t have to agree to anything. Yes, the mother is given the benefit of the doubt, but if neither can afford their own lawyer, mediator and a judge is all they get (unless CPS gets involved for whatever reason). Yes, the mediator usually tries to give the mother more custody, but what people lack knowledge in, is the father doesn’t HAVE to agree to anything he doesn’t want to. As long as you stay civil, and present yourself as open-minded, you’ll most likely get what you’re asking for, or close to it–if you don’t have a record or just randomly appeared in your child’s life one year + after they were born. But people are so immature, they go into mediation calling names, cussing, and talking shit about the other parent, rather than thinking about the child. Just because you hate the other parent’s guts because you’re jaded, or whatever the case may be, as long as your child ISN’T in danger, there’s no reason not to give the other parent time with their child, other than to just be spiteful.


  • Is there any news on this little girl??

  • I just saw him a week ago at Walmart and he’s been working at walmart. He doesn’t look nothing like the pics on here. He’s clean and clean shaven. If you haven’t seen him as much as we have. You won’t be bashing him. I have known this guy most of his life. Whatever the girl’s grandmother is saying is a bunch of bull. He was working hard to make things right to be with his daughter.

  • Working at wall mart then abducts child wheres the amber alert!!!??

  • oopsy,

    turns out the child wasn’t abducted, the family says oops, our bad.

    but these comments can be here disparaging this father forever. if i were to google names in these articles i can be led to these comments…

    they have devastating potential for father and daughter…

    perhaps those who made negative comments would come back and again comment that they were in error?

  • Devil’s lettuce? Grower’s “outfit?” Smoking pot (you can find in studies if you can read, or just by simply speaking to anybody even slightly educated on the subject) leave those who absorb it very sleepy, hungry, and hungry still. For those “Marines who ought to assigned posts from which they can harass citizens in the fashion of a bulldog without work,” think of small words like “harmless” if a sentence is too elaborate and quickly exhausts the only undeveloped muscle in your body: the brain. My “outfit” is a jacket and jeans. How does a parent “abduct” their own child? The media, and the indiviual who was designated my daughter’s guardian at the time, contacted authority once I had taken my daughter North to meet her grandmother. This occured after 6 months of provding the mother little time to see Allison, as far as designating a restraining order and effectively preventing Allison’s mother the ability to visit the home. And my eyes are green, not brown. Don’t believe everything in the media, folks. HOO RAH – Lux
