For many months my dd's father was basically out of the picture... long story.
She would often feel sad and miss him. I would explain to her that her daddy loved her and wanted to be with her, but the circumstances would not allow it.
Often she would reaffirm that both I and her daddy loved her, out of the blue. I would confirm it, and honor her feelings.
You really need to just reiterate to your son that it is not his fault that his daddy is not near him, and that his daddy loves him. And always honor whatever he is feeling around it, even if its frustrating, and you want to tell him that his father is in trouble and running from the law.
Best of luck and let us keep posting. It is so good to get ideas and feedback from the boards.
