Mom Abandons Special Needs Boy In The Woods - It Gets Worse

A woman has been accused of leading her son, who has special needs, into the woods and attempting to abandon him there. The New Jersey mother has been arrested for endangering the life of a child after she left her son in the woods. According to reports, the woman had her son pack a bag and she left him in the woods all by himself. She then went home. Neighbors were shocked, but the disgraced mother doesn't want to talk about the issue.

Debra Wisler of Millville, NJ, was trying to get her son enrolled in a Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst program, a program at a local military base. She found out that he was ineligible to enroll in the program on the Air Force base, and she opted for plan B: leave him in the woods.

According to reports, the 39-year-old mother brought the little boy to a wooded area near the base. She walked him into the woods with his luggage and left him there.

The little boy spent a little time in the woods wondering what to do. After walking around for a while he fell asleep and later woke up hungry. He began wandering around and came by a roadside. A motorist spotted him and picked him up. The Good Samaritan brought the child to the visitor's center, where they gave him food, water and a medical evaluation.

The boy had sustained some minor, non-life-threatening injuries. He was able to give authorities his mother's name and phone number. The boy was taken into custody of the state police, then later placed with the New Jersey Division of Child Protection and Permanency. They've placed the child in a temporary care situation.

Wisler was approached by authorities and arrested. She was released pending a court date. She has refused to answer her phone, and when reporters knock on her door she sends them away.

“I don’t want my business all out there,” Wisler said from her porch to reporters. “Just please leave the property.”

The move was an unexpected one, it seems. Photos of Wisler's son are plastered all over her Facebook page up until 2017. Until this incident, she has apparently been a very doting mother. In the intro on her page, she wrote, "I can be ur best friend intill u do me dirty. N i have a heart of gold. n my son is my world."

A few months ago, she began posting much more infrequently, and only a couple of photos of herself. She stopped mentioning her son, and in her photos, she appeared to be unhappy.

Barbara Todd, a former teacher's aide in the boy's school, was shocked.

“He was her life, and I just can’t believe it,” she said to People.com. “She got him involved in everything that she could and all services are available to him and her... I can’t even talk, I’m just still so shocked.”

It’s unclear if Wisler has retained a lawyer, or if she’s planning to fight to get custody of her son back.
