But after 2 years, some maintain hope that Alexis Patterson will be found
By LEONARD SYKES JR.

In the west side neighborhood surrounding Hi-Mount Elementary School where Alexis Patterson vanished two years ago, the community fervor to find her has all but died down.

Alexis Patterson disappeared May 3, 2002. She was 7 years old.

Anneliese Haeselich plans to keep the flier for missing Alexis Patterson in the window of her home on N. 49th St. until she is found.



Few businesses, homes or bus shelters carry the elementary school portrait of Alexis, a key part of the poster asking for information on her disappearance. The posters, once the inspiration for the community search, have themselves vanished, right along with the intensive searches by police and sheriff's deputies.

Four police detectives have traveled out of state looking for the remains of a girl missing for more two years, a television station reported.

A prisoner told investigators the remains of Alexis Patterson were buried in a southern state near a metropolitan area, according to WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee. The station quoted unnamed law enforcement sources in its report Tuesday.

Three years ago, Alexis was walking to school with her stepfather, but the then 7-year-old never made it inside the school.

I've read through a few of the many articles. Did they ever mention anything about the family being suspects? Particularly the step-father since he dropped her off?
What about other children on the playground? or Teachers?
Did anyone ever remember seeing her AT the playground? I couldn't find anything that said anyone recalls her even being there.

When this first happened, there was a report that someone heard screams near where she was found. I never saw anything about it after that. I thought, if it checked out, that this was probably an indication that she met with foul play right after she went missing.

There are still missing posters in area restaurants. She hasn't been forgotten, but I think, like the Prescious Doe case, that a tip from someone who knows what happened, will be needed to crack the case.

If LaRon Bourgeois truly had nothing to do with the disappearance of Alexis Patterson, he's probably been wronged as much as anybody in this ordeal.

At least, he certainly thinks so.

The stepfather of then-7-year-old Alexis has been Unofficial Suspect in the minds of many observers in this baffling mystery.

Bourgeois was the last person to see her alive after walking her to Hi-Mount Elementary School two years ago.

Police questioned him extensively and gave him a polygraph test but no official comment from police ever suggested Bourgeois was regarded as a suspect.

Alexis Patterson -

Sweet Alexis has always been on my mind over the last 3 years. I had two friends in the National Guard who took part in the search. I find this a very sad story. Hoping there will be a tip in this case, as it seems there are no leads at the current time.

It hurt me Alexis, (a cute child) did not receive such wide spread media attention as many other missing children. I assume because she was a poor child from Milwaukee.

I was glad to see John Walsh do an update on this case at one point. I know that LE did think the moms mate, (the childs stepfather- who was the last to person to be seen with her) was a suspect but I think he has been cleared.

Each day I pray for Alexis, and I try to get the word out through different sites and organizations.

My prayers for this family and to others who have not had their children returned.

In response to one question: The schools were checked, and the playground, in fact the whole area, but I do not know any information.

I find it unfair sometimes a child is treated differently when they are of another race. This is just my opinion.

Prayers for all the missing children and adults. There is also a Website for Alexis.

Come home Alexis. You are missed.

The charges are related to running a "drug house" in her home. They found a large amount of cocaine in the home and she has been selling from the home. The "word on the streets" here in Milwaukee has always been that people think stepdad allowed Alexis to be taken to fulfill a drug debt. That is just a rumor and I don't know what info led people to think that but mom's most recent run in definitely may show they are connected somehow to people in the drug business that would be capable of such awful plans as abducting and god knows what else to a child!

Because the 'then step dad' was polygraphed, he must have passed? So now that we see the mom is involved with 'hard drugs,' IMO, they need to revisit the investigation into this missing child and talk to the mom. Who knows, maybe the 'then step dad' was covering for the mom. :(

Just a thought

I just can't believe how many people, and especially children, can just disappear without a trace. You visit the NCMEC and the other missing sites, there are so many people gone........so many families and loved ones left behind.....not knowing.

It's truly heartbreaking.

I honestly don't know why they can't have a cable station dedicated just to 'missing persons,' and 'unsolved' cases of abducted children and adults. There has to be several large corporations that would gladly sponser such a program. If they were even able to solve 1/2 as many cases as AMW has captures, this could be huge.

Just like with on your siggy, JerseyGirl,.....What in the world could have happened to this missing couple? I mean, they are in a vehicle which hasn't been found. It's like they were beamed up into the sky. Someone, somewhere, has to have seen something. :confused:

And I did hear rumblings recently of one being in the works. I'm not sure how much of that is rumor and how much is truth, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I think it's necessary - there are so many missing and too many that we never even hear about.

And they have found absolutely nothing. Not one single clue. Not one single witness. There are a couple threads here at WS about it, Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community - Richard Petrone, 35 & Danielle Imbo, 34 (http://websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=20094), (in fact, I just added it to my siggy), but it's more or less just a place to post the few news stories that pop up because there's just nothing. It's got to be so frustrating for their families. Richard's cousin posts on that thread and I feel terrible that she's still left guessing after all of this time.

God bless Alexis, Danielle & Richard, and all of those that are missing.

It's been more than four years since 7-year-old Alexis Patterson disappeared on her way to Milwaukee's Hi-Mount Boulevard Elementary School.

Daytime talker Maury Povich dusts off the case file in a show airing today at 4 on Channel 24, talking to Alexis' mother, Ayanna Patterson, about the unsolved mystery.

"The last four years of my life have been a nightmare," she says on today's show. "I'm so empty."

Povich said in a phone interview that, while his airing of the Patterson case may not bring out new information, it at least lets Alexis' mother know that people are still concerned about the girl, missing since May 2002.

"She's emotional, but at the same time, she's also realistic," he said.

This little girl has been gone way to long. Did she disappear on the way home from school or from her home? Is her mother still with the man that LE think did something to her?

Are there no fliers still up or anything to remind people that this little seven year old girl is still missing? I read the article about the older lady that said she will keep the poster in her window until this little one is found. Bless her heart. Why isn't the mother making sure that she isn't forgotten? That is really sad. Poor little girl. I hope that she is found one of these days and doesn't remain out there by herself forever.

Remembering Alexis Patterson

WTMJ-TV and JSOnline.com
updated 8:54 p.m. ET, Sat., Dec. 13, 2008
The Caylee Anthony case brings back memories of a missing child case in Milwaukee. It's been six and a half years since Alexis Patterson disappeared, but investigators aren't giving up hope.

MILWAUKEE - Sheree Rogers still wonders what happened to Alexis Patterson. The Milwaukee mother can't forget the little girl who disappeared in 2002 after she was dropped off at Hi-Mount Elementary School. Rogers told TODAY'S TMJ4, "It really saddens me because my kids go to that school, and I'm thinking could that still happen... could we still find her body?" Rogers says the Caylee Anthony case in Florida has brought back memories of Alexis Patterson. Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm says the Anthony case also reminds him of Patterson, and makes him want to solve the case even more. "It remains an open case and that means that we still invest resources into it," he said. The D.A. says he's optimistic one day Milwaukee will find out what happened to little Alexis. "We always maintain hope, we are always committed to finding out what happened. And we hope that someday justice will be done in this case as well."

The article includes an age progression, but I am not sure how to post it or the current forum photo posting/linking rules.

I'm very familiar with law enforcement in the area and the police tried long and hard to find Alexis. Many officers worked many hours on their own time. I did NOT know this however:Chief Judge Jeff Kremers confirmed for 12 News that a John Doe investigation began in 2003 and is ongoing today. A John Doe is a closed, secret proceeding designed to gather information. Kremers wouldn't say anything about what has been learned so far.

"Let my baby come home! If the worst has happened to my child, it don't matter. I just want my baby's body, Lord Jesus. If you got my baby, let her go," Patterson said.

"You know how hard it is for me to even allow myself to get up and push on? It's very hard for me. But I keep going because I know Alexis knows, 'My mama's looking for me. My mother wants me. My mother knows I'm coming home.' When I go to sleep, I pray that I see her in my dreams. And I see her in my dreams. That's how I know that she's coming home."

The mother of a missing Milwaukee girl is lobbying for a national day of remembrance for all missing children and adults.

Eight years ago Monday, Alexis Patterson went missing. She was 7 years old.

On the day she disappeared, her stepfather said he walked Alexis to Hi-Mount School and left her on the playground. She's been missing ever since.

About 30 close friends and relatives held a prayer vigil at the spot where Alexis disappeared eight years ago on Monday night.

"Let my baby come home! If the worst has happened to my child, it don't matter. I just want my baby's body, Lord Jesus. If you got my baby, let her go," Patterson said.

"You know how hard it is for me to even allow myself to get up and push on? It's very hard for me. But I keep going because I know Alexis knows, 'My mama's looking for me. My mother wants me. My mother knows I'm coming home.' When I go to sleep, I pray that I see her in my dreams. And I see her in my dreams. That's how I know that she's coming home."

No one has ever been arrested in Alexis' disappearance. Her stepfather is in jail on unrelated drug charges.

Alexis Patterson - 7 years old - Friday May 3, 2002

Never showed up at school after her stepfather walked her to the corner.

Mom discovered her missing when she didn't come home from school and immediately called police. (Kyron Horman like.)

It took an hour for the police to respond at all. (Though she'd already been gone the whole school day.)

7 year old Alexis was treated as a runaway.
Because she wasn't allowed to take cupcakes to school that day.

So police said let's give it the WEEKEND and if she's not home by Monday...

She was 7 years old.
SEVEN.

Wondered about this case- there is no info on how/where was found. The "date found" was 2/24/07 which is so very close (error maybe?) to this one, also found in Lake County IN

My question is this - both were young AA females. Alexis would have been 12 which puts the age close. The other UID has much more info, but WHAT IF someone kidnapped 2 little girls back in 2002 and held them until killing them in 2007?

Alexis' family and others will gather Thursday at Hi-Mount Elementary School, where Alexis was a student and where her stepfather told police he dropped her off the day she went missing.

The gathering will be part of a commemoration Patterson calls "Forget Me Not Day," which she hopes will help keep attention on her daughter's case, and those of all missing children.

"We must never forget her. I can't ever forget her," says Patterson, who during the past 10 years has taken the search for Alexis nationwide, appearing on numerous television shows, including "Maury Povich," "Ricki Lake" and "The View."

Has anyone heard anything back? This poor little girl is from my area. I am always thinking about her. I wish her mother could have some closure and peace of mind to know what happened to her baby girl! Below is a link to the website dedicated to helping find out where Alexis is and what may have happened to her. Please, bring Alexis home, where she belongs! :please:

Why do we seldom hear about missing black children?

They are strangers whose faces and names we know intimately; JonBenét Ramsey, Elizabeth Smart, Dylan Redwine, Caylee Anthony. They are other people's children, but we worry for them, pray for them. In addition to being young and innocent, these well-known names have something else in common.

All are white.

[snip]

The fact that younger, attractive white children — particularly girls — incite a disproportionate amount of media attention is not new. Alexis Patterson, a seven-year-old, African-American girl from a poor part of Milwaukee, also disappeared in 2002, after being walked to school.

Eleven years ago today, a little Milwaukee girl was on her way to school, but never made it. She hasn't been seen since. But today, Milwaukee County Sheriff's deputies will make sure she isn't forgotten, either.

10 Cases Of Students Vanishing From Their Schools

4- Alexis Patterson

On the morning of May 3, 2002, seven-year-old Alexis Patterson walked with her stepfather to Hi-Mount Boulevard School in Milwaukee. When Alexis arrived at school, she was last seen heading toward the playground before her stepfather went home. However, she never attended any of her classes, though other students reported seeing her crying on the playground both before and after school that day. However, these are the last confirmed sightings of Alexis and the school did not notify her family about her absence until that afternoon. An extensive search of the area failed to turn up any trace of her.

Alexis had a perfect attendance record prior to her disappearance and it was theorized she chose not to attend classes after getting into an argument with her mother the night before. As punishment, Alexis was not allowed to bring cupcakes to her classmates as she had originally promised—which might explain why she didn’t show up for class—but was still seen hanging around the school playground. Some students reported seeing a suspicious red truck parked near the school during the preceding week, which was never seen again after Alexis’ disappearance. Months later, an anonymous caller contacted a Milwaukee television station to claim that Alexis’ remains could be found in the Milwaukee River, but a search turned up nothing and the identity of the caller is unknown. Over a decade later, Alexis Patterson has still never been found.

I have long suspected that he had something to do with the disappearance of Alexis Patterson. This only adds to my suspicions.

If he hurts a little baby like that I'm sure he wouldn't have a problem abusing an older child...Poor Alexis.

This is the BIOLOGICAL FATHER.
He wasn't in Alexis' life... why would anyone suspect him?
He was incarcerated when Alexis disappeared.
Why would he hire someone to abduct a child he had nothing to do with while he was incarcerated?
I am missing something, someone please explain what his motive and means would have been here?

The STEPFATHER is where my suspicions still lie, if it was family. :twocents:

Thanks for clarifying. I was thinking it's the stepdad somehow.
