Similar to Jada Justice and Tangena Hussain, we have caretakers asserting their child disappeared from a car.

In this case the child Hassani, 5 years old, has cerebral palsy and wears leg braces. Are we to believe he left the car of his own free will and disappeared into nowhere? Witnesses told police Hassani was in Oakland with a his aunt's fiance, who was dropping off another child to Campbell's aunt. Hassini apparently lives with his aunt & her fiance.

According to news reports, Hassini was allegedly left in the car, a newer model BMW, while the fiance took Hassini's sister into the aunt's home. The boy was gone when the fiance returned, witnesses said. The caretaker's fiance asserts he last saw the child at 4:15 pm on 8/10/09 and the police were called three minutes later.

A suspicious story at best...

PLUTO rises, always ominous in a Missing Child case. Moreover, Event PLUTO is close square Hassini's natal SUN posited at 01 Libra. PLUTO, symbolizing death, destruction, complications, and murder attacks Hassini's natal SUN.

In the Event Chart, the SUN, which always describes the Event, is intercepted (hidden) in the 8th House of Death conjunct the Part of MISfortune. This clearly shows the cover-up (interception = hidden). Event SUN at 18 Leo is in a degree of evil. MISfortune is partile opposed BLACK MOON LILITH, another marker of evil. The malefic SOUTH NODE, still another marker of evil, is posited at 29 Cancer and also in the 8th House of Death partile conjunct the 7/21/09 Solar Eclipse degree, while BLACK MOON LILITH is partile conjunct the 8/5/09 Lunar Eclipse degree. These are extremely strong death testimonies.

Event MOON, describing the action, at 14 Aries is posited in the 4th House of Endings / the Grave trine the death SUN, Lord intercepted 8th. The 4th House Endings/ Grave cusp 06 Aries is partile square Hassini's secondary progressed SUN at 06 Libra. ORPHEUS, a death asteroid, is also posited in the 4th House of Endings/ the Grave at 21 Aries, partile quindecile (165 degrees) Event MIDHEAVEN. With a separation of 4 minutes of Arc, this suggests he was already dead when the alleged Last Seen took place.

Event VENUS the 5th House Child at 11 Cancer is partile conjunct the Part of PERIL and partile square Hassini's natal VENUS 11 Libra. As a Libra child, VENUS is an important planet.

Event SUN 18 Leo in a degree of evil is just past trine to Hassini's natal PLUTO (17 Sagittarius) which itself is conjunct the Event ASCENDANT.

Event ALGOL, the most malefic Fixed Star in the Heavens, at 26 Taurus is partile semisquare Event VENUS the 5th House Child Hassini.

There is more, but even this much shows the death testimonies are overwhelming.

FBI search home of Hassani Campbell
August 12, 5:16 PM
<snipped>
Hassani was last seen with his aunt, Jennifer Campbell’s fiancé, Louis Ross, 38, who is the boy's caretaker. Ross said he left Hassani sitting in his unlocked BMW, parked outside a shoe store, Shuz of Rockridge, where the boy’s aunt works. The couple aslo care for Hassani’s 1-year-old sister.

On Wednesday, police, the FBI and search and rescue dogs searched the Oakland shoe store and Hassani’s Roxie Terrace home in Fremont, Calif., where they collected bags of evidence.

The boy’s godmother told the media she knew of no problems in the family and does not believe Hassani’s foster parents—his aunt and her fiancé—had anything to do with his disappearance.

Hassani’s sister has been taken into the custody of Child Protective Services while the investigation is underway.

Hassani suffers from cerebral palsy and wears braces; therefore, authorities believe he could not have walked away from the vehicle on his own.

Hassani is African American with brown hair and brown eyes and was wearing a gray sweatshirt and gray pants when he was last seen. His leg braces are decorated with a Spiderman design.

Hassani Campbell, 5, has been missing since Monday afternoon when he was last seen in his foster father's car outside. Campbell has cerebral palsy and wears braces on his legs to help him move.

Foster Father Of Missing 5-Year-Old Submits To Polygraph Test
Posted: 10:44 pm PDT August 10, 2009
Updated: 7:08 pm PDT August 12, 2009
<snipped>
Both foster parents were requested to take a polygraph test regarding their version of the events leading up to the disappearance of Hassani Campbell, but only his foster father Louis Ross consented to undergo the test the day after the couple Fremont home was extensively searched for evidence.

Hassani’s foster mother Jennifer Campbell is six months pregnant and reportedly declined the test out of concerns for her unborn child.

More than 48 hours have passed since the little boy disappeared. Ross reportedly left him standing beside his car in a driveway behind the College Avenue shoe store that Hassani’s foster mother Jennifer Campbell managed

Ross said he took the boy's 18-month-old sister with him as he went inside the store to drop her off. When he returned to the car just minutes later to get the boy, he was gone.

Store owner John Riker said he was surprised to learn that Campbell ever had her foster children with her at work.

"Jen's six months pregnant, She has an 18-month-old and a handicapped son," said Riker. "This is not a day care center; it's a shoe store."

However, Riker said he didn’t have a problem with Campbell having the children at the store on rare occasions and described her as “a good mom.”

"I can't imagine any foul play from her end," said Riker.

Police told KTVU that -- despite combing the Rockridge area for witnesses two nights running -- they still have not found anyone who saw Ross with the little boy before he disappeared.

On Wednesday, the foster parents did not open the door of their home in Fremont that police searched the previous night, nor did they return phone calls.

Fremont police spent Wednesday morning searching with dogs within a mile of the house for any sign of Hasani Campbell. They looked in parks, drainage ditches, abandoned houses and dumpsters.

One officer told KTVU police have alerted landfills in Alameda County to be alert for a body. Hasani Campbell is just three feet tall and weighs only 30 pounds.

"These things can go in a variety of directions," said Oakland police Sgt. Ray Backman. "We're hoping and praying it doesn't go off into the direction we're no longer trying to find a missing child but to recover a body. That is our worst nightmare."

Missing boy's foster dad pleads for his return
Wednesday, August 12, 2009
<snipped>
(08-12) 20:03 PDT FREMONT -- The foster father of a missing 5-year-old boy with cerebral palsy pleaded for the child's safe return Wednesday, saying the family is going through a "nightmare beyond belief" that includes scrutiny from police and the FBI.

Louis Welton Ross of Fremont said he and his fiancée, the boy's aunt, have cooperated "100 percent" with authorities who are trying to find Hasanni Campbell.

An attorney consulting with the couple said Ross took a polygraph test Wednesday, one day after police and FBI investigators with search dogs went through the family's home for several hours.

"We were not involved in my son's disappearance in any way," Ross said. "We are cooperating with the police and with the FBI 100 percent."

Campbell, 33, who is six months pregnant, remained upstairs in their home during the interview. Relatives said she gained custody of Hasanni after her sister, the boy's mother, was unable to care for him.

Polygraph test
Ross said he would not talk about the details of the investigation, saying he wanted to make sure he did nothing to jeopardize it. He would not comment on the account by attorney John Burris of Oakland that he had taken a polygraph test Wednesday after initially refusing.

Burris said he was consulting with the couple and had urged them to cooperate with authorities.

"I suggested to them, they need to be candid and truthful with the police," Burris said. "The police should look at them - they need to rule him and her out."

No sightings
After he reported Hasanni missing, Ross said, police seemed to blame the family first. Authorities removed Hasanni's 1-year-old sister and put her in another foster home, he said.

"We were very upset," he said. "We were dealing with a loss of a child, and the other child was taken from us.

"All of a sudden it was like we were thrown against the wall," Ross said. "We had to prove we were not responsible - but our son is out there missing. We cannot be part of the search."

He said family members have distributed flyers in the Rockridge area with Hasanni's photo and other information. The family did not go to the media immediately because "our first and primary concern is the return of our son," Ross said.

Grandmother's account
Campbell's mother, Pamela Clark, 62, of San Francisco, said she doubted Ross or Campbell were responsible for Hasanni's disappearance. Ross, she said, is "a very professional man. He has a good job, he is very hard-working, a good provider."

Clark added, "I don't think the family's involved at all."

Campbell became Hasanni's legal guardian after her sister, 25-year-old Shemika Campbell of San Francisco, could not take care of him, relatives said.

Clark said Shemika Campbell is "just devastated" by the boy's disappearance.

Court records show that San Francisco officials sued Shemika Campbell and Hasanni's father, Ronald Hughes, starting in 2005, claiming they were unable to support Hasanni.

The actions, one against Hughes and the other against Campbell, were apparently resolved last year with a default judgment entered on behalf of the city. They could not be reached for comment.

Missing E. Bay Boy's Foster Dad Speaks Out
Aug 12, 2009 7:21 pm US/Pacific
<snipped>
The foster father of a a missing 5-year-old boy with cerebral palsy made an emotional plea Wednesday evening for the boy's return and denied any involvement in his disappearance.

"We love him and we miss him and we won't stop looking for him," Louis Ross, foster father of missing Hasanni Campbell, told CBS 5 in an interview from his Fremont home.

Ross' comments came as the Federal Bureau of Investigation and local police conducted searches in the Oakland Hills on Wednesday related to the boy's disappearance. On Tuesday, police and the FBI had searched Ross' home.

Authorities declined to comment on the searches and Ross denied a report that investigators had seized a computer from his home.

Earlier Wednesday, prominent Bay Area civil rights attorney John Burris said Ross had agreed to take a polygraph test as requested by police.

Ross later told CBS 5 that while he consulted with Burris, he had not hired the lawyer to represent him. Ross also maintained that he was "cooperating 100 percent" with police and the FBI.

The foster father was the last person to see Hasanni, who has been missing since Monday afternoon.

Exclusive: Guardians of Missing Oakland Boy Plea for Public's Help
8/11/2009 3:11:00 PM
<snipped>
The guardians of a five year old boy still missing from Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood are pleading for the public's help in finding Hassani Campbell.

In an exclusive interview with KRON 4's Terisa Estacio, Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell provided new details about the moments leading up to the child's disappearance from behind a shoe store on College Avenue Monday afternoon.

Ross and Campbell are the child's legal guardians. Campbell's sister is Hassani's biological mother.

Ross says Hassani was standing in the alley at the back of the store when he went inside to get Campbell who is his fiancée. Campbell was due to care for Hassani while Ross attended night school classes. The little boy has braces on his legs to help with his cerebral palsy.

Ross and Campbell say they did not leave Hassani in the car. When they returned to the alley, the child was missing.

Foster father: Hasanni has no leg braces
Tuesday, August 11, 2009
<snipped>
The search for Hasanni was underway in the Rockridge area for the second day in a row. Wednesday evening, detectives were handing flyers out to people in the neighborhood hoping to find someone who saw something. So far, the last person to see Hasanni was his foster father.

Louis Ross, the foster father of the missing 5-year-old boy, spoke to ABC7 Wednesday night and said a critical description of his son is wrong. He says Hasanni does not wear metal leg braces.

"So that story being put out there& think about the time that was lost. People could be looking at our son and not realizing it was him because the key discriminator was metal leg braces," said Ross.

Both Hasanni's aunt and Ross are frustrated about not having any time to organize a search for Hasanni. They say they are too busy cooperating with police -- talking to them for 12 hours the first night, and 17 hours the next.

48 hours after Hasanni went missing the search for him continues. Search teams canvassed the Fremont neighborhood where Hasanni lives with his aunt Jennifer Campbell and her fiancé. Dogs searched a park near their house for the little boy's scent but investigators called off the search when they came up empty handed.

Oakland Police Sgt. Ray Blackman told ABC7 Wednesday that they did not have any solid leads or suspects.

Authorities towed the car. Police and FBI agents have searched the couple's Fremont home and the neighborhood surrounding the shoe store but some family members question the Ross's story.

"It appears somewhat strange and I don't know. So, I don't really want to speculate," said Hassani's godmother Regina Douglas.

Boy with cerebral palsy is missing
Monday, August 10, 2009
<snipped>
On College Avenue, near Claremont in the Rockridge neighborhood of Oakland, police focused on the Shuz of Rockridge shoe store where it all began.

Police say the missing boy's father told them he pulled up to behind the building to let his son in the back door because the boy has cerebral palsy and can't walk well. The father reportedly walked around to the front of the store, went through it and when he opened the back door, the boy was missing from his car seat. Police say the boy's father called 911 around 4 p.m. and a search started immediately for Hasanni.

"There was a lot of foot traffic here and there was a lot of vehicle traffic. There's a business right here that had a lot of people outside and it's one of the first places I went and asked people if they saw him and they said, no they didn't see him. It's kind of notable to see a young man walking around with braces on his legs and nobody saw him," says Oakland Police Sgt. Richard Vierra.

Hasanni's father's car is being processed as part of the crime scene because police believe they could be dealing with an abduction. The initial search went on for over a solid seven hours on Monday night and the investigation continues.

FBI, police search Fremont home of 5-year-old who went missing in Oakland
Posted: 08/11/2009 07:54:44 AM PDT
Updated: 08/11/2009 11:04:23 PM PDT

The FBI and police on Tuesday searched the Fremont home of a 5-year-old disabled boy who vanished from behind a Rockridge district shoe store Monday afternoon, and authorities took the boy's younger sister into protective custody Tuesday.

Louis Ross, the child's foster father, said he left the boy, Hassani Campbell, outside his newer-model BMW in the back parking lot of Shuz, a shoe store in the 6000 block of College Avenue, about 4:15 p.m. He was there to drop the boy's 1-year-old sister off with his fiance, Jennifer Campbell, the boy's aunt and foster mother, police said. Campbell manages the store.

Some Rockridge residents and store employees said they have doubts about Ross' story.

"There are just too many questions," said Paullet Barnes, who works at a Rockridge art gallery. Barnes said the parking lot is too out of the way for a random kidnapper looking to snatch a child.

The boy has lived with Ross, 38, and Campbell, 30, in Fremont since December because his 25-year-old biological mother, who lives in San Francisco, has drug and health problems, authorities said. Police have not spoken to the boy's father, who also lives in San Francisco.

FBI agents searched the couple's home in the 5900 block of Roxie Terrace and shooed away a reporter who knocked at the door. "We are working something (here)," an agent said.

Authorities said the couple, who reportedly are taking legal steps to adopt the boy, hired a lawyer Tuesday. The boy's 1-year-old sister was taken into protective custody Tuesday, authorities said.

Sean Fahey, who lives in an apartment in the same building as the Shuz store, said he saw Campbell sobbing after the boy went missing. "She was really scared," he said.

Hassani Campbell's grandmother describes the missing child as an intelligent, impressionable child who loves the cartoon character Sponge Bob.

Pamela Clark is urging whoever may have the child to let Hassani go free.

"Please let him come home," Clark told reporters. "Please let him go."

"He's a very sweet, affectionate boy," Clark said. "He's very intelligent, very smart, he loves Sponge Bob, he's just an impressionable child."

Clark says Hassani can speak with a slight lisp. She says it's possible he wandered away since he can walk even without his leg braces but not very quickly.

Police Say It's Not Unusual No One Saw Hassani Campbell's Disappearance
8/12/2009 6:45:00 PM
<snipped>
Oakland police say there's no evidence five-year old Hassani Campbell's disappearance is the result of any kind of domestic dispute.

KRON 4's Mark Jones talked with a neighbor who says he was home at the time the child vanished from behind the "Shuz of Rockridge" shoe store on College Avenue. The neighbor says he didn't see or hear anything.

Police say it's not that unusual to have no witnesses to this kind of incident.

"We have had cases before in the past, not just in Oakland but in other jurisdictions, where abductions have occurred and no one saw it even in very populated areas," Oakland Police Sgt. Raymond Backman told KRON 4's Mark Jones.

"Have you talked to the biological mother?" Mark asked.

"We've identified the biological parents and I believe we have spoken to all of them," Sgt. Backman said.

Police Search Park Near Missing Child’s Home in Fremont
August 12, 2009 – 2:03 pm
updated 4:50 p.m., Aug. 12
<snipped>
Fremont police searched a park in North Fremont this morning near the home of missing five-year-old Hassani Campbell, but there have been no new developments in the case, said Sgt. Chris Mazzone, a spokesperson with the Fremont Police dept.

Karl Nordvik Park is located a few blocks away from Hassani’s home in the 5900 block of Roxie Terrace, Fremont.

The missing boy, who has cerebral palsy, disappeared from a parked car near the 6000 block of College Ave around 4:15 p.m Monday, according to his foster father, Louis Ross, who contacted the police.

So far, the police said, the investigation is only based on information provided by Ross, who was responsible for the child when he disappeared.

Ross told police he parked his car near Shuz of Rockridge (6012 College Ave), where his fiancé, Jennifer Campbell, Hassani’s aunt and foster mother, works. Police said Ross told them he went into the store to open a back door so his disabled son could enter more easily, but when he returned to the car, the boy was gone.

Homicide Detectives Working On Missing 5-Year-Old Case

<snipped>
A source told KTVU Wednesday night that homicide detectives have been brought into the investigation of five-year-old Hassani Campbell’s disappearance Monday afternoon.

Burris described the couple as being surprised by the focus of the investigation as law enforcement conducted an extensive search of their Fremont home Tuesday.

Burris said Ross agreed to take a polygraph test scheduled for sometime Wednesday, while Campbell would not take the take one because of concerns that the test could affect her pregnancy.

"He was more than willing to take a polygraph, but I did advise him that taking the polygraph is not necessarily foolproof," said Burris. "It is not uncommon to have a false negative."

Police told KTVU that -- despite combing the Rockridge area for witnesses two nights running -- they still have not found anyone who saw Ross with the little boy before he disappeared.

On Wednesday, the foster parents did not open the door of their home in Fremont that police searched the previous night, nor did they return phone calls.

Fremont police spent Wednesday morning searching with dogs within a mile of the house for any sign of Hasani Campbell. They looked in parks, drainage ditches, abandoned houses and dumpsters.

One officer told KTVU police have alerted landfills in Alameda County to be alert for a body. Hasani Campbell is just three feet tall and weighs only 30 pounds.

Similar to Jada Justice and Tangena Hussain, we have caretakers asserting their child disappeared from a car.

In this case the child Hassani, 5 years old, has cerebral palsy and wears leg braces. Are we to believe he left the car of his own free will and disappeared into nowhere? Witnesses told police Hassani was in Oakland with a his aunt's fiance, who was dropping off another child to Campbell's aunt. Hassini apparently lives with his aunt & her fiance.

According to news reports, Hassini was allegedly left in the car, a newer model BMW, while the fiance took Hassini's sister into the aunt's home. The boy was gone when the fiance returned, witnesses said. The caretaker's fiance asserts he last saw the child at 4:15 pm on 8/10/09 and the police were called three minutes later.

A suspicious story at best...

Sadly,
Soulscape

Very respectfully sniped for space.

These poor little children. Not given the opportunity to grow-up and enjoy all life has to offer. This is becoming an every day occurance anymore. I really hope they find the responsible parties and prosecute them to the fullest extent the law allows.

Thank you Soulscape for always providing so much detail with your charts. And thanks to all of the other super astros who contribute so much to these little children.

Angel, thank you for supplying the 'facts' so succinctly, one below the other. Very helpful.

Regarding Hassini, the charts strongly suggest homicide/murder. The child was not kidnapped.

The caretakers are involved because the 5th House of the Child and the 6th House of Caretakers share the same cuspal sign (Taurus).

If Hassini is the 5th House Child, the 5th House would be his turned 1st and his 'parents/caregivers' would be assigned to his own 10/4 axis. See chart in post #1. The turned parental 4th is radix House 8 and the turned parental 10 is radix House 2. Notice the intercepted signs across this axis as well as the dire testimonies described in my post #1 of this thread. Moreover, 22 degrees --- a degree of death by murder --- is on the parental cusps of the turned chart (2/8 radix, 4/10 turned).

Death is a homicide. Parental involvement. Lies/ cover-ups.

Thanks,
Soulscape

Missing Fremont boy's caretaker talks to media; homicide investigator assigned to case
Posted: 08/13/2009 08:39:07 AM PDT
Updated: 08/13/2009 08:58:17 AM PDT
<snipped>
Hassani's foster father, in interviews at his home Wednesday in Fremont, asked for the public's help in finding the boy and clarified earlier media reports that Hassani, who has cerebral palsy, wears leg braces.

He said he wears orthopedic ankle braces to help shape his feet and can walk without them.

When asked if he believed that someone he knew might be behind the disappearance, Ross told reporters from the community web site OaklandNorth.net, "As a father, those are thoughts you don't entertain. This has been a nightmare."

An Oakland homicide investigator has been assigned to the case full-time, according to Oakland Police Sgt. Ray Backman.

"It's not unusual in such cases," Backman said. "We're not discounting any possibilities."

"It might appear to be rough, but at the end of the day, the police are trying to find the kid. Until they rule the family out, they're going to be subjects of investigation, because they have to be," he said.

Oakland police on Wednesday also continued their search, and were aided by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The center has experience dealing with thousands of missing child cases.

"They're here to advise us, make sure we're covering all the bases and not missing anything," Oakland police Lt. Sharon Williams said.

There haven't been any independent witnesses who saw the boy in Oakland on Monday, police said.

Some in the Rockridge area said they haven't seen the boy since last week.

Three men living in different homes on Roxie Terrace in Fremont — the same street where Ross and Campbell live — said they don't recall ever seeing the boy.

"I've never seen him," said Pavan Muppidi, a father of young children who has lived on the street for seven years.

Homicide cops join missing-boy investigation
Thursday, August 13, 2009
<snipped>
(08-13) 09:01 PDT OAKLAND---Six investigators joined officers from the Oakland police missing-persons unit in canvassing the area Wednesday outside the shoe store where Hasanni Campbell was reportedly last seen. Police passed out flyers along the 6000 block of College Avenue in the city's Rockridge district, urging anyone with information to contact them.

Oakland homicide Sgt. Mike Gantt, who was among those who visited the scene, said today that police wanted some of their more seasoned investigators to work the case and that no assumptions should be made because they had been brought in.

"It's still a missing-persons case," Gantt said.

The homicide squad's visit came as Hasanni's foster father, Louis Welton Ross, 38, of Fremont urged anyone with information about the boy's whereabouts to contact police.

Ross said he would not talk about the details of the investigation, saying he wanted to make sure that he did nothing to jeopardize it. He would not comment on the account by attorney John Burris of Oakland that he had taken a polygraph test Wednesday after initially refusing.

Burris said he was consulting with the couple and had urged them to cooperate with authorities.

"I suggested to them, they need to be candid and truthful with the police," Burris said. "The police should look at them; they need to rule him and her out."

He added, "I don't see anything that suggests anything negative about these individuals."

He said the boy wears arch-support braces because of his cerebral palsy, not full leg braces, and that the public may have the idea that he needed the braces to get around. "They are to reshape his foot, give him an arch," Ross said. "He doesn't need them to walk."

After he reported Hasanni missing, Ross said, police seemed to blame the family first. Authorities removed Hasanni's 1-year-old sister and put her in another foster home, he said.

"We were very upset," he said. "We were dealing with a loss of a child, and the other child was taken from us.

"All of a sudden, it was like we were thrown against the wall," Ross said. "We had to prove we were not responsible, but our son is out there missing."

Missing Boy's Foster Parents Cooperating With Cops
Prominent attorney's advice: Do what they ask
Updated 11:18 AM PDT, Thu, Aug 13, 2009
<snipped>
Ross told NBC Bay Area by phone that he had nothing to do with Hasanni's disappearance and that he and the boy's foster mother have agreed to take lie detector tests.

Ross took the polygraph test Wednesday night but the foster mother, Jennifer Campbell, is pregnant and didn't want to take the test for fear it would harm her unborn child, the Chronicle reported.

Police are not commenting about the polygraph test.

Oakland police searched Joaquin Miller Park but have not said yet if they were looking for anything specific or how close they were to finding the boy.

Hasanni has cerebral palsy and wears braces on his feet to help him walk. The prosthetics, adorned with Spiderman logos, would not be visible because they are fitted just for his feet. While he can walk, Hasani's disability prevents him from running or jumping.

Missing Boy Case Is Strange
August 13, 2009
<snipped>
The case of the disabled Fremont boy who allegedly went missing in Oakland's tony Rockridge district has been strange from the start. And it appears authorities, including the FBI, have been justified in questioning the version of events put forth by the child's foster father, including searching the family home in Fremont, despite his claim that the kid went missing 30 miles away.

First off, the chances that the 5-year-old wandered off on his own are remote. He has cerebral palsy and has trouble walking. Plus, it seems unlikely that he would be kidnapped by a stranger in broad daylight in an upscale shopping district like Rockridge that experiences very little crime and where stranger abductions are unheard of.

Missing boy's foster father talks to ABC7
Thursday, August 13, 2009 | 12:57 PM
<snipped>
Family members of a missing disabled Fremont boy are hoping someone can help find him. Police say 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell was last seen in Oakland two days ago. He has cerebral palsy, but family members say he doesn't have leg braces on the outside of his pants.

Louis Ross took a polygraph test on Wednesday, but the child's foster mother is refusing. He refuses to discuss the outcome, citing the police investigation.
Jennifer Campbell is pregnant and declined a polygraph test, fearing the stress could hurt her unborn baby.
Louis Ross spoke to ABC7 Wednesday night and said a critical description of his son is wrong. He says Hasanni does not wear metal leg braces on the outside of his pants.

"So that story being put out there... think about the time that was lost. People could be looking at our son and not realizing it was him because the key discriminator was metal leg braces," said Ross.

Oakland Police Sgt. Ray Blackman told ABC7 Wednesday that they did not have any solid leads or suspects.

Police say the couple is cooperating with the investigation but they will not say whether they have taken a polygraph test. Investigators plan to search the Rockridge area for a second day in a row hoping for new leads.

"Primarily, this is a missing person's case. But, we would be neglecting in our duties if we discounted that foul play may have occurred," said Ray.

Missing Boy's Family Cooperates With Police as Search Continues
8/13/2009 12:10:00 PM
<snipped>
Oakland attorney John Burris says he was contacted earlier this week by Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell, the foster parents of Hassani Campbell, because they were concerned about being questioned by police about the boy's disappearance.

Hassani was reported missing from the 6000 block of College Avenue at around 4:15 p.m. Monday, Oakland police said.

The family "was surprised police tried to interrogate them, and I wanted to advise them that that is logical and they should not be dismayed by it," Burris said.

"They're emotionally traumatized, then police start asking them questions that they thought were unduly aggressive, and I just wanted to make sure that they understood that and not be intimidated by it," he said.

Burris said that Ross, the Hassani's foster father, was the last person to see the boy before he went missing. Burris has recommended that the parents "be cooperative so the police can rule them out and go about trying to find Hassani."

Missing child's foster dad says boy was kidnapped
Posted: 08/13/2009 01:19:22 PM PDT

The foster father of a missing San Francisco Bay area 5-year-old with cerebral palsy believes the boy was kidnapped.
Louis Ross, the foster father of missing Hasanni Campbell, pleaded on Thursday for the boy's safe return. Ross was the last person to see Hasanni, who has been missing since Monday.

Ross says he last saw Hasanni getting out of Ross' parked car behind an Oakland shoe store where Jennifer Campbell, Ross's fiancee and the boy's foster mother, works.

Ross says he told the boy to stay by the store's back door as he went to the front to get Campbell to open the back. Ross says the boy was gone when he returned.

Ross says he is cooperating with authorities and has taken a polygraph test, but declined to discuss the results.

"This has been a nightmare beyond belief," Ross said of the boy's disappearance on Monday.

Ross insisted he and his fiancee, who is the boy's aunt, have cooperated fully with investigators even after being tabbed as potential suspects in the child's disappearance.

"All of a sudden, it was like we were thrown against the wall," Ross said of investigators' initial suspicions in the missing person case. "We had to prove we were not responsible, but our son is out there missing."

Ross, 38, told the Chronicle he fears the younger Campbell was kidnapped. Based on that suspicion, Ross offered a plea to the child's possible abductors.

"If I could talk to anyone who may have taken him, I would say, 'Drop him off and go -- but don't hurt him. You have done enough,'" he said.

Angel, thank you for supplying the 'facts' so succinctly, one below the other. Very helpful.

Regarding Hassini, the charts strongly suggest homicide/murder. The child was not kidnapped.

The caretakers are involved because the 5th House of the Child and the 6th House of Caretakers share the same cuspal sign (Taurus).

If Hassini is the 5th House Child, the 5th House would be his turned 1st and his 'parents/caregivers' would be assigned to his own 10/4 axis. See chart in post #1. The turned parental 4th is radix House 8 and the turned parental 10 is radix House 2. Notice the intercepted signs across this axis as well as the dire testimonies described in my post #1 of this thread. Moreover, 22 degrees --- a degree of death by murder --- is on the parental cusps of the turned chart (2/8 radix, 4/10 turned).

Death is a homicide. Parental involvement. Lies/ cover-ups.

Thanks,

Search for missing 5-year-old boy intensifies
Thursday, August 13, 2009 | 5:07 PM
<snipped>
The Oakland homicide division is now involved in the search for 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell who has been missing since Monday. Police say it is because they need the additional personnel, and not because they consider it a murder case. A wrecking yard was the latest focus of their investigation.

The focus of the search returned to the Rockridge area Thursday afternoon. Police sent 30 officers back into the neighborhood to visit homes and businesses they may have missed in the past couple days.

He has taken a polygraph but he didn't tell me what the results were, but he did tell me he spoke truthfully, answered all questions, but I haven't spoken to anyone about it," said attorney John Burris.

Police will not confirm whether Ross took or passed the polygraph.

ABC7 News has learned that detectives have visited an auto salvage yard in Hayward over the past two days. Employees there say Ross was there before the boy disappeared on Monday, and that the boy waited in the car while Ross searched the yard for car parts. Police confirm that they have been searching in that area as well as many others. They have also searched a levee behind the salvage yard.

Police have clarified that the boy is disabled, but does not wear leg braces, but instead wears orthotics inside his shoes. He is able to walk, although with some difficulty.

Oakland police officers will be going door-to-door in the city's Rockridge neighborhood until the sun goes down today to search for information on the disappearance of a 5-year-old boy with cerebral palsy, police Sgt. Ray Backman said.

Backman said that there are about 300 homes and businesses in the area at which no one has been available to talk.

"We're going to go back out there, and the goal is maybe some of those people that weren't there, we can get a hold of," he said. "We're really trying to make sure that we're doing a really thorough canvas of the area."

Backman said a homicide detective has been assigned to the case along with eight special victims units.

"We're going to explore any and all possible outcomes of the case," he said.
Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell, the foster parents of Hasanni, have been cooperating with the investigation, Backman said.

The FBI has joined Oakland police in the search.

"We're pretty much in our holding pattern right now," Backman said. "During daylight hours we're going to continue to canvas and search. We'll scale back the search at nighttime, and resume it again at daylight."

Oakland homicide detective joins search for missing Fremont boy
Updated: 08/13/2009 05:05:54 PM PDT
<snipped>
An Oakland homicide detective has joined the search for Hassani Campbell, the 5-year-old disabled Fremont boy who was reported missing Monday afternoon, police said.

The move comes the day after Louis Ross, the boy's foster father, took a polygraph test. Ross has declined to discuss the results.

"All I know is he told me he answered all the questions truthfully," said Oakland civil rights attorney John Burris, who is advising Ross and the boy's foster mother, Jennifer Campbell. "I called him, and that's what he told me."

Burris has not been formally retained by Ross.

"I don't think (he) needs an attorney," Burris said today. Campbell has declined to take a polygraph test because she is six months pregnant and is worried the test could harm her unborn baby, Burris said. She has not hired an attorney either.

Also today, Oakland police returned to Rockridge, trying to talk to people who have not been at home or at work on previous search attempts. A CHP helicopter in the air and police on the ground searched Coyote Hills Regional Park in Fremont, but what if anything was found is not known.

Campbell did not talk to reporters Wednesday but did show a different photo of the boy after emerging from upstairs.

No independent witnesses have come forward to report seeing the boy Monday in Oakland, police said. Some in the Rockridge area said they haven't seen the boy since last week. A few neighbors on Roxie Terrance in Fremont, where the family lives, said they have never seen the boy in the nine months he's lived there.

Ross and Campbell have been caring for the boy because the boy's biological mother, who lives in San Francisco, has drug and health problems, authorities said. Police have spoken to both the mother, Shemika L. Campbell, and the biological father, Ronald Hughes, also of San Francisco, but have not released details about those talks.

FBI, police search Fremont home, park for boy

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and local police agencies searched a Roxie Terrace home Tuesday for clues in the disappearance of a 5-year-old Fremont boy.

Police also searched Karl Nordvik Park on Commerce Drive Wednesday morning, as well as nearby areas.

Police said there was no information leading them to believe the missing boy, Hassani Campbell, is at the park or in the surrounding area. The search is being done as a precautionary measure since he lives nearby.

The park is about a mile north from the two-story home where the missing boy lives with aunt Jennifer Campbell and her fiancŽ, Louis Ross, and two cousins.

Police and police dogs canvassed the Rockridge area Monday night, and several dozen police in cars, on bicycles and on foot continued the search Tuesday. Investigators also interviewed registered sex offenders living in the area, a routine procedure when a child disappears.

Authorities said Ross and Campbell have been cooperative but could be brought in for additional questioning.

An Oakland homicide investigator has been assigned to the case full time, according to Oakland police Sgt. Raymond Buckman.

Foster Dad Pleads for Safe Return of Missing Boy
Published: August 13, 2009
Filed at 5:29 p.m. ET
<snipped>
The tearful foster father of a missing 5-year-old boy with cerebral palsy said Thursday he believes the child was kidnapped and pleaded for his safe return.

His foster father, Louis Ross, the last known person to see Hasanni, said the boy disappeared after he briefly left him outside his car in the rear parking lot of a shoe store where Ross' fiancee, Jennifer Campbell, works.

Ross said he went to the store's front entrance to ask Campbell to open the back door, but when he returned to the parking lot, Hasanni was gone.

''It has been nonstop,'' Oakland police Sgt. Ray Backman said. ''Given that it's a 5-year-old boy, time is a critical factor for us.''

The boy is still considered a missing person, not a kidnap victim, Backman said. Investigators were working with no significant clues and a limited amount of tips, he said.

''There's always that possibility he will be found,'' the sergeant said.

Ross said his family was cooperating with authorities, although he felt police believed he and Campbell did something wrong.

Ross has taken a polygraph test, but Campbell declined because she is six months pregnant and worried about any adverse effects.

Ross declined to discuss the results of his test.

The couple, who also have custody of Hasanni's year-old sister, were seeking advice from John Burris, a civil rights attorney.

Burris said they were surprised about being the focus of the investigation. Their house was searched and Hasanni's sister was taken from them and placed in protective custody, he said.

''What I told them is their boy is missing and that you have to cooperate, assuming that you did nothing wrong,'' Burris said. ''I told them, you were the last ones who saw him, so they are going to come to you.''

Backman said he understood the family was going through a trying time.

''A lot of the questions that we have to ask during the course of investigation are very intrusive because we want to explore all possibilities, however remote they might be,'' Backman said. ''We're trying to be as delicate as we can.''

He disappeared after Ross pulled his BMW into a rear parking lot behind the shoe store with Hasanni and his infant sister onboard. Ross said he was heading for an orientation at Stanford University Medical Center in Palo Alto and then to his twice-weekly medical assistant class in Fremont.

Dropping the kids with Campbell is a family routine, Ross said. When he opened the rear passenger door for Hasanni, he said, the boy was unbuckling his seat belt.

''I said, 'Hasanni, go wait by the back door,' and he had already taken a first step out of the car,'' Ross said.

Ross said he grabbed Hasanni's sister and went to the front of the store and told Campbell to open the back door. He then went back to the parking lot.

''When I got to back there (Campbell) was already there. She says to me, 'Where's Hasanni?''' Ross said. ''I said, 'What do you mean?' I look to see if he's standing along by the car, but he's not.''

Police Investigation of Missing Fremont Boy Continues
August 13, 2009 – 7:55 pm PT
<snipped>
The search for missing five-year-old Hasanni Campbell continued Thursday as Oakland homicide investigators joined the on-going investigation.

Fremont Police Detective Bill Veteran said that kidnappings were “a rarity” in Fremont, where the boy is from. The most recent incident, he said, was a child abduction involving the child’s father, but that was several years ago. Abductions by strangers were especially rare, he said.

Ross refused to discuss legalities of the case with reporters, but the Oakland Tribune reported that he took a polygraph test today, although police could not be reached for comment.

Edward Wunsch, a Minnesota-based expert on child abduction cases, said that police perform polygraph tests to eliminate the possibility of parent’s involvement.

Ross told police on Monday that he parked his car near Shuz of Rockridge at 6012 College Ave where his fiancé, Hasanni’s aunt and foster mother, works. Ross said he went into the store to open a back door so his disabled son could enter more easily, but when he returned to the car, the boy was gone.

Police did not say whether any witnesses saw the five-year-old boy in the parked car.

Police have spoken to boy's biological parents, Shemika L. Campbell and Ronald Hughes, both of San Francisco, but have not released details about those talks. The boy's sister was taken into protective custody Monday.

Soulscape,

Do you think both the aunt and BF, or just the BF?

Thank you Soulscape. This is so upsetting because I have never seen an incorrect reading...ever...from our forensic astro's. God bless Hassani. :(

JnTexas & Kat, the Last Seen Chart indicates parental involvement. It also indicates Louis Ross is lying.

I need birth data on Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell to go further with this.

Thanks,

Foster Father Makes Plea For Missing Boy
Posted: 4:38 pm PDT August 13, 2009

Ross said he had parked in the back of the store and gone around to the front to tell his fiancé to open the back door to get Hasanni. He said this is something he's done every Monday and Wednesday for months.

But Ross said when he returned to the parking lot, Hasanni was gone. He said he looked up and down the street and called 911 when he couldn't find him.

In an interview with KTVU, Ross said he believes someone took Hasanni and he had a message for them.

"Drop him off anywhere. My son he wouldn't realize; he wouldn't remember you,” said Ross. "People have come in and out of his life all his life. Drop him off, let him go, don't harm him. And you know what? I will leave it like that. The biggest thing I'm having a hard time with is I screwed up."

He also said he and his fiancé spent five hours searching with police for the boy. Then they were with the Oakland officers being questioned for another 12 hours.

Oakland attorney John Burris said Thursday that he was contacted earlier this week by Ross and Campbell because they were concerned about being questioned by police about the boy's disappearance.

The family "was surprised police tried to interrogate them, and I wanted to advise them that that is logical and they should not be dismayed by it," Burris said.

"They're emotionally traumatized, then the police start asking them questions that they thought were unduly aggressive, and I just wanted to make sure that they understood that and not be intimidated by it," he said.

Burris said that Ross, Hassani's foster father, was the last person to see the boy before he went missing. Burris said he recommended that the parents just "be cooperative so the police can rule them out and go about trying to find Hassani."

The FBI has joined Oakland police in the search.

"We're pretty much in our holding pattern right now," Backman said. "During daylight hours we're going to continue to canvas and search. We'll scale back the search at nighttime, and resume it again at daylight."

July 1, 1971

If anyone can find his place of birth it would be a plus, but not critical as I can work from a relocated chart. I will post the chart & commentary later today.

We are still in need of Jennifer Campbell's birth data / place of birth if anyone can supply.

Two Oakland detectives driving an unmarked police car led the foster father of missing 5-year-old Hassani Campbell away from his home this afternoon for additional questioning.

The two investigators were at Louis Ross' home on Roxie Terrance in Fremont on Friday afternoon, and at about 1:30 p.m., the officers exited the home and waited at their vehicle, which was half parked on the sidewalk.

A few minutes later, Ross emerged from his family's two-story home wearing a light-colored dress shirt and dark colored pants.

He walked swiftly across the lawn and got into the back seat of the police vehicle. The car then drove off.

Today's visit with Ross was a routine part of the investigation, police said. The lead homicide investigator assigned to the case had not previously spoken directly with the boy's foster father, and wanted to get up to speed. Ross was not taken to the police station.

Ross earlier this week took a polygraph test, reportedly administered by the FBI, but the results have not been released.

Police have been investigating Hassani's disappearance as a missing persons case but have called in homicide investigators. Meanwhile, today it was disclosed that earlier on the day Hassani was reported missing, Ross was seen at a Hayward salvage yard, possibly with the boy in the car.

According to Oakland Police, officers on Thursday visited salvage yards on West Winton Avenue and showed photos of Ross to people there as part of the investigation.

Missing 5-year-old last seen in store parking lot, caretaker says
August 14, 2009
<snipped>
Louis Ross told HLN's Nancy Grace that he left 5-year-old Hassani Campbell outside his BMW for two to five minutes Monday afternoon. Ross said he went to the front door of the store to ask his fiancee, Jennifer Campbell, who works there, to open the back door.

"By the time I got there, Jennifer is already out of the store, walking toward me, asking, 'Where is Hasanni?' And I say, 'What do you mean, where is Hasanni?' And I look around to the side, and he is no longer there."

According to Ross, Campbell routinely took care of Hasanni and his 19-month-old sister while Ross attended medical assistant classes twice a week in Fremont.

"They would stay in the back room and play with each other until she got off work, and they would all come home together, and I would see them at 9:30, 10 at night, when I got home from class," Ross said.

Asked what flashed through his mind at the time, Ross said, "Initially, it didn't hit me. He's probably standing around there. ... When Hasanni gets frustrated, he freezes.

"So I thought he would still be on the side. And we all thought -- even Jennifer thought he was probably just hiding and joking around."

Foster father of Hassini Campbell taken in for questioning

On Friday at about 1:30 p.m., Louis Ross, the foster father of missing 5-year-old Hassani Campbell accompanied two Oakland Police Department detectives from his home to the police station for further questioning.

Hassani was last seen with Ross, 38, on Monday, sitting in his BMW. The vehicle was parked outside a shoe store, Shuz of Rockridge, where the boy’s aunt, Jennifer Campbell, 33 is employed. Ross told police he left the boy alone in the car when he went to unlock the shoe store to allow Hassani to enter the store more easily, but when he returned to the car, the boy was gone.

Initially, Hassani’s disappearance was being investigated as a missing persons case, but homicide detectives have now been assigned to aid in the investigation.

Foster Father of Missing Boy Leaves Home with Police
August 14, 2009 – 5:01 pm
<snipped>
The foster father of missing five-year-old Hasanni Campbell was questioned by police today and left his home in Fremont with officers, said a prominent Oakland attorney who has been consulting with the foster parents.

Attorney John Burris could not confirm where the police and Louis Ross, the foster father, were going, but said that they were in a car, driving around the area. The home is on the 5900 block of Roxie Terrace in North Fremont.

The boy’s biological parents live in San Francisco, and police said they have spoken with them, but would not give out further information.

The house was full of reminders of the two children; empty strollers and baby toys were visible from the living room and a small pink sandal lay on the wooden floor.

During the 20-minute interview, Ross sought to dispel what he considered false facts including the report of Hasanni’s leg braces. He wears “ankle braces,” or orthopedics designed to help shape his feet. He can still walk without them, Ross said.

When asked if he believed that someone he knew might be behind the disappearance, Ross said, “As a father, those are thoughts you don’t entertain. This has been a nightmare.”

Ross refused to discuss legalities of the case with reporters.

He told police on Monday that he parked his car near Shuz of Rockridge at 6012 College Ave where his fiancé, Hasanni’s aunt and foster mother, works. Ross said he went into the store to open a back door so his disabled son could enter more easily, but when he returned to the car, the boy was gone.

Police did not say whether any witnesses saw the five-year-old boy in the parked car.

UPDATED: Search for missing 5-year-old boy intensifies
The Oakland homicide division is now involved in the search for 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell who has been missing since Monday. Police say it is because they need the additional personnel, and not because they consider it a murder case. A wrecking yard was the latest focus of their investigation.
Friday, August 14, 2009 | 7:14 PM
<snipped>
Police in the East Bay have more questions for the foster father of a missing 5-year-old disabled boy from Fremont. The foster father was the last person to see Hasanni Campbell this past Monday on College Avenue in Oakland.

On Friday afternoon, the child's foster father, Louis Ross, walked out of his Fremont home and into the waiting car of Oakland Police detectives.

According to Ross' advisor, attorney John Burris, detectives drove Ross around for about an hour. Earlier this week Ross told ABC7 News he spent nearly 30 hours to detectives.

Ross was not taken to Oakland Police headquarters, rather detectives simply drove him around for about an hour. They want him to retrace his steps the morning the child disappeared.

In the meantime, Alameda County Search and Rescue will conduct a wide scale search for Hassani on Monday.
"We've been asked to coordinate a search and rescue effort for Saturday for the Oakland Police Department and it entails us calling other search and rescuers from other allied agencies as well as our own, and come Saturday wherever the Oakland Police Department wants us we will search those areas," said Sheriff's Spokesperson J.D. Nelson.

Oakland Police has yet to announce where that search will take place.

A missing boy's foster father is answering more questions from police.

Ross was driven from his Fremont home in an unmarked police car and questioned by Oakland detectives for a time Friday afternoon.

Ross' advisor, attorney John Burris, detectives drove Ross around for about an hour. They want him to retrace his steps from Monday, the day the boy disappeared.

Initially, Ross told police that he left the boy for just a few minutes Monday afternoon in the parking lot of a Rockridge shoe store, and that the boy vanished.

A large scale search is scheduled for Saturday morning.

Oakland police returned to an auto scrapyard in Hayward Friday for a third time. Police are trying to determine if Ross was accompanied by the missing boy when he visited the scrapyard Monday morning.

UPDATED: Police question missing boy's foster father
August 14, 2009
<snipped>
(08-14) 17:56 PDT HAYWARD -- The foster father of a missing 5-year-old boy was interviewed for about an hour Friday by Oakland police homicide investigators who brought him to a Hayward auto wrecking yard where he took the boy before the child vanished, authorities said.

Louis Ross agreed to accompany Sgt. Gus Galindo to the Pick Your Part wrecking yard on Winton Avenue, where Ross took Hasanni Campbell and the boy's 1-year-old sister Monday afternoon, hours before the boy disappeared, said John Burris, a lawyer whom Ross is consulting.

Police have searched in and around the auto-parts yard and the store in recent days, along with a park near the family's home in Fremont. They say they still consider the case a missing person investigation.

Ross, 38, has said he is cooperating with officials "100 percent." He took a polygraph examination Wednesday, but federal authorities who administered the test will not discuss the findings.

Burris said police took Ross to the wrecking yard and spoke with him for about an hour Friday before returning him to his home on Roxie Terrace.

"They wanted to find out what he knows," Burris said. "He was very cooperative."

Ross told Burris that he had gone to the yard looking for a car part. He was taking care of the children before dropping them off at the shoe store so he could go to a job orientation at Stanford Hospital Medical Center and then a medical assistant's class in Union City, Burris said.

Alameda County sheriff's deputies will be searching Coyote Hills Regional Park in Fremont on Saturday and undisclosed locations in Hayward, authorities with knowledge of the case said. It is not clear why those areas were being targeted for more intensive searches.

The foster father of a missing boy with cerebral palsy reportedly left his Fremont home with homicide detectives Friday afternoon for additional questioning.

Police said the detective involved had not spoken with Louis Ross directly and wanted to ask him some questions.

Ross said he was dropping Hasanni Campbell and his young sister off at a shoe store in Rockridge Monday to stay with his foster mother while he went to school.

Ross said he had parked in the back of the store and gone around to the front to tell his fiancé to open the back door to get Hasanni. He said this is something he's done every Monday and Wednesday for months.

Police plan a massive grid search of the area near Ross's home Saturday in Fremont. Authorities were also planning another search in Hayward.

Backman said a homicide detective has been assigned to the case along with eight special victims units.

"We're going to explore any and all possible outcomes of the case," he said.

Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell, the foster parents of Hassani, have been cooperating with the investigation, Backman said.

Investigators searched the parents' house in Fremont, as well as a nearby park, earlier this week, he said.

Child Abduction Cases By Strangers Are Rare
August 14, 2009 – 6:08 pm
<snipped>
Child Abduction cases do not occur often in the East Bay, say police, a few days after a foster father reported that a five-year-old boy with cerebral palsy disappeared in Rockridge.

“In Berkeley, child abductions are exceedingly rare. Ordinarily, they’re short-lived and have to do with some kind of custody battle,” said Sgt. Mary Kusmiss of the Berkeley Police on Friday afternoon.

Abductions by strangers occur even more infrequently.

The last time a stranger abducted a child in Berkeley occurred in 1992, Kusmiss said. In the Baby Kerri case, a Richmond woman posing as a social worker stole a two-day old baby from her 16-year-old mother at Alta Bates hospital in Berkeley.

The baby was returned three months later, thanks to a tip from a neighbor.

Fremont Police Detective Bill Veteran said that kidnappings were also “a rarity” in Fremont, where the boy is from. The most recent incident, he said, was a child abduction involving the child’s father, which occurred years ago. Abductions by strangers, he added, were especially rare.

According to the California Department of Justice, there were 1,363 parental or family member child abductions in 2008, compared to just 35 stranger abductions in the same year.

National statistics from 2002 affirm the same trend: abductions of children by family members are about three times more common than abductions by strangers, according to U.S. Department of Justice.

“The harsh reality is, most abduction cases are by somebody [the child] knows,” said Anthony Gonzales of Child Quest International, a non-profit that deals with missing and exploited children in the Bay Area.

Police Sgt. Gus Galindo, a homicide investigator, later would not discuss details of the interview with foster father Louis Ross, and it was not clear how long the interview lasted.

He and Sgt. Tim Nolan went to the family's two-story home on Roxie Terrace earlier Friday, and about 1:30 p.m. exited the home and waited near their vehicle.

A few minutes later, Ross emerged from the home wearing a light-colored dress shirt and dark pants. He walked swiftly across the lawn and got into the back seat of the car by himself. The car then drove off.

At no time was he handcuffed.

They apparently dropped him off back at his house less than two hours later.

Editorial: Community must mobilize to find missing Fremont boy
Posted: 08/15/2009 12:01:00 AM PDT
<snipped>
WHERE IS Hassani Campbell?

The 5-year-old Fremont boy, who suffers from cerebral palsy, was reported missing Monday from the Rockridge area in Oakland. Police, the FBI and the National Center for Exploited Children have all been searching for the child. On Thursday evening, authorities were searching Coyote Hills Regional Park in Fremont.

The foster father's account leaves us with a number of questions.

Why would a parent leave a young child — particularly one with a serious condition such as cerebral palsy — standing alone in the afternoon heat while he went into a store? Why not take the boy inside with him?

It's possible that he wandered off, but in our view, unlikely. Hassani wears orthopedic ankle braces, which would suggest that he is not fleet of foot. It's hard to imagine that on his own he could have gotten very far.

That leaves two decidedly disturbing scenarios for authorities to investigate.

One is that Hassani was never in Rockridge in the first place. As is customary in child disappearances, the authorities have searched the foster parents' home in Fremont as well as a nearby park. Ross has taken a polygraph, but refused to disclose the results. Ross now says he believes the boy was kidnapped.

Another scenario is that, in a flash of an instant, someone took the boy while his foster father was inside the store. We know from past experience that child abductions can happen in plain sight — even in busy commercial areas. Adam Walsh was abducted from a shopping mall parking lot in Hollywood, Fla.

Back in March, when Sandra Cantu went missing in Tracy, there was a massive mobilization in the community to find the child. We need the same level of community response to help locate Hassani Campbell, wherever he may be.

We urge all of you to join us in praying for this little boy's safe return.

5-year old Hassani Campbell still missing
August 14, 11:54 PM
<snipped>
5-year old Hassani Campbell who disappeared on Monday is still missing. Louis Ross, Hassani's foster father and the one who last saw Hassani, took a lie detector test on Thursday. The results have not been announced. Friday, Ross spoke with Nancy Grace of CNN.

"As normal routine, I would pull into the back parking...there is a little back parking lot behind the store, that would accommodate about 2-4 cars. I would pull into the parking spot then proceed to basically get out of my side, walk around and open up the door for Hassani, because that was our normal routine," Ross told Nancy Grace.

Ross said that he told Hassani to go stand by the back door and he walked, carrying Hassani's sister to the front of the store to tell his wife, Jennifer, to open the back door of the store. When he circled back Hassani was gone.

The message that Ross wanted everyone to know was that Hassani was not wearing silver leg braces but actually small braces on his ankles that most people wouldn't notice. He doesn't want the public looking for a child with leg braces, and possibly missing seeing Hassani.

The foster father of a missing 5-year-old boy says some media accounts of the handicapped Oakland, Calif., child's disappearance are wrong.

Louis Ross, 38, told CNN Friday that contrary to some reports, he never went inside a shoe store during the last time Hassani Campbell was seen alive in the store's parking lot. The boy, who has cerebral palsy, has been the subject of an intense search since his Monday disappearance.

The Oakland Tribune reported Friday that Ross has told police he left the boy alone when he went into a shoe store to drop off Hassani's 1-year-old sister. Jennifer Campbell, Ross's fiancee and the boy's biological aunt who has custody, works as a manager at the store, the newspaper said.

On the CNN show, Ross said he never went into the shoe store but only to the front of the business to motion to Campbell that he had arrived.

Ross told the U.S. broadcaster he voluntarily took a polygraph test. Those test results have not been disclosed.

Areas of southern Alameda County were to be searched for signs of Hassani Saturday by law enforcement agents, including FBI, police and sheriff's deputies, the Tribune said.

The foster father of a missing 5-year-old boy from Fremont spent an hour talking to the police on Friday.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Louis Ross agreed to show police officials the Hayward auto wrecking yard where he took Hassanni Campbell on the afternoon he disappeared.

Ross said he was looking for a part for his car Monday afternoon when he visited the lot with Campbell and his 1-year-old sister.

He said that later that afternoon Campbell went missing after he was left alone outside a shoe store on College Avenue in Oakland where his mom was working.

The paper reports that 38-year-old Ross is cooperating with police, taking a polygraph test and submitting to interviews.

Police have searched the wrecking yard and a park near the family's home and say they still consider this a missing person's case.

He told Grace that he left Hassani standing outside his BMW for two to five minutes.

Hassani suffers from cerebral palsy, but Ross said he does not wear silver leg braces, but instead wears small white braces on his ankles.

Ross explained, "By the time I got there [to the car], Jennifer is already out of the store, walking toward me, asking, 'Where is Hasanni?' And I say, 'What do you mean, where is Hasanni?' And I look around to the side, and he is no longer there."

Search continues for Hasanni Campbell
About 100 volunteers searched for a missing disabled boy on Saturday. Hasanni Campbell was last seen Monday in the Rockridge district of Oakland. Efforts to find him have taken investigators all over the East Bay.
Saturday, August 15, 2009 | 5:25 PM
<snipped>
The latest point of interest has been the Coyote Hills Regional Park in Fremont. The area crews were searching was only about a half-mile from Hasanni's house, but far from the parking lot in Oakland where he is said to have disappeared on Monday. Crews searched the park from about 9 a.m. Saturday until 5 p.m. but they came up with nothing.

The volunteers spent most of the day searching through high brush at the park and marshlands in Hayward for any sign of the missing 5-year-old. Police say investigative leads led them to the search areas but they would not be any more specific.

"These weren't our most likely leads but now that we've pretty much saturated the area of disappearance, we're branching out to some of the less likely scenarios," said Oakland police Sgt. Raymond Backman.

On Saturday the family was not involved in the search.

"We are not actively soliciting their help they are dealing with enough right now so we're trying to limiting their involvement, particularly because the areas we're searching today, there's a lot of hazards," Backman explained.

The sight of search dogs surprised many who visited Coyote Hills Saturday afternoon.
"It's sad and shocking. I had no idea. I come to the park mostly once or twice a week for my walk. I just saw some activity and I was curious," said park visitor Gurjit Randhawa.

"We feel really sorry for that boy. It's really safe here," said Lizhen Wu.
With the days ticking by searchers know time is not on their side.

"The statistics show having a successful location of the victim without harm greatly diminishes. We're certainly acutely aware of that," Backman said.

Neigbors of Hasanni's step father say they have not seen anyone at the house in the last couple of days. Oakland police say it is back to the drawing board as far as where to begin searching next.

I just got back from visiting Rockridge--the area around Shuz. I took some pictures which I hope I'll be able to upload here.

As expected, there was bumper to bumper traffic going through on College Ave, and the street was crawling with people. Of course, it's Saturday, but this is always a busy area.

I was lucky to find a parking spot on Harwood almost directly across from the alley/parking lot where LR parked his car on Aug. 10.

Harwood itself is quiet and residential with beautiful, but not extravagant, older houses and big trees; I guess if someone grabbed Hasanni and ran up Harwood with him it might have been possible to do so without being seen, but my gut feeling is: it just didn't happen.

The alley/parking lot is not as long as it looks in the pictures online. I wanted to get closer to the door and archway and snap a photo but I was a little worried about trespassing or possibly that I could get in trouble for taking pictures. However, I can say that the archway has no door and appears to go to a backyard of the apartment building. The doorway next to it that is partly hidden looks like it might be a storage area and the door looks like it is broken or slightly ajar.

On the left hand wall of the alley are windows of a store between the empty corner store and the alley, so someone in there could have seen something if a person grabbed Hasanni.

The store on the corner of Harwood and College is empty and you can see through the windows from one street to the other--hopefully this is obvious in the picture.

I walked from the alley parking lot to Shuz and since I wasn't wearing a watch I just counted 1-2-3 etc, and figure it's probably less than a minute from the alley to the store--probably would take less time if I were younger, LOL.

I peered into the Shuz shop but I did not see Jennifer; there was a poster for Hasanni in the window.

My overall feeling is that he was not kidnapped. I could be wrong but after seeing the whole scene, I just don't think so. All the people I saw were upscale, yuppies or parents, no homeless or anyone looking "down on their luck" whatsoever--NOT that homeless or down on their luck people are miscreants, but you just don't find any of that element in this neighborhood. It's just a really nice area. Bad things can happen anywhere, of course, so I could be wrong, but I just don't see Hasanni being abducted here.

SS or Tuba is there anything you can chart as to what life at home was like for Hassani before he was in the home with LR & JC??? I know there is no date except for it this from an article: Court records show that San Francisco officials sued Shemika Campbell and Hassanni's father, Ronald Hughes, starting in 2005, claiming they were unable to support Hassanni.

The actions, one against Hughes and the other against Campbell, were apparently resolved last year with a default judgment entered on behalf of the city. They could not be reached for comment....

as well as he was in their care aprox. 9 months ago! TIA :blowkiss:

Vigil to be held for missing boy
Monday, August 17, 2009 | 9:08 AM
<snipped>
A candlelight vigil is set for Monday to mark exactly one week since a five-year-old East Bay boy vanished.

Over the weekend, about 100 volunteers searched through the high brush of Coyote Hills Regional Park in Fremont, and marshlands in Hayward for any sign of Hasanni Campbell.

Police say investigative leads led them to the search areas, but they would not be any more specific.

Hasanni went missing Monday afternoon after his foster parent, Louis Ross, says he left the boy standing in an Oakland parking lot for just a few minutes. Since then, the police and FBI have searched Ross's home that he shares with Hasanni's aunt. Police have also spent hours questioning the couple.

With the days ticking by, searchers know time is not on their side.

Reward Offered in Missing Child Case
Updated 3:05 PM PDT, Mon, Aug 17, 2009
<snipped>
The family of the East Bay boy who has been missing for one week is holding a vigil tonight in Oakland.

Hassani Campbell is just five years old. His foster father said he left the little boy in his car while he walked around to the front a shoe store where the boy's foster mother worked last Monday afternoon.

Louis Ross said when he got back to the car, Hassani was gone.

This afternoon friends, family and strangers will gather in Rockridge to remember Hassani and try to bring attention to the case.

The vigil is scheduled to start at 4 p.m. near the Shuz shoe store where his foster mother worked.

Also Monday, Oakland police announced a $10,000 reward was being offered to anyone with information leading his whereabouts.

As in all missing child cases, the family has been questioned several times by police. Ross told NBC Bay Area that he and the boy's foster mother, Hassani's aunt, are fully cooperating with investigators. He also told NBC Bay Area by phone that he had nothing to do with Hassani's disappearance and that he and the boy's foster mother have agreed to take lie detector tests.

Ross took the polygraph test last week but the foster mother, Jennifer Campbell, is pregnant and didn't want to take the test for fear it would harm her unborn child, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Police are not commenting about the polygraph test.

Police also towed Ross' car but have not said yet whether they have found anything important to the case. FBI agents have also searched the Fremont home where Hassani lives with his foster parents.

Hassani has cerebral palsy and wears braces on his feet to help him walk. The prosthetics, adorned with Spiderman logos, would not be visible because they are fitted just for his feet. While he can walk, Hasanni's disability prevents him from running or jumping.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has also joined the search.

Police offer up to $10,000 for information leading to whereabouts of missing Fremont boy

Police and Crime Stoppers of Oakland have announced a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the whereabouts of 5-year-old Hassani Campbell, a disabled Fremont boy whose family members say he was last seen one week ago.

Meanwhile, family members, including foster father Louis Ross and foster mother Jennifer Campbell, will be distributing fliers at a vigil at 4 p.m. today at Shuz of Rockridge, the shoe store at Harwood and College avenues where Hassani was last seen, a relative said. The public is welcome.

"We refuse to give up hope. We know he wouldn't walk away like that," Ross told The Associated Press last week. "Whoever has him, let him go. Please drop him off somewhere — the police, a hospital, a school. Somewhere. Please."

In TV interviews, the couple described Hassani as a very friendly boy who would talk to anyone.

Ross said he was dropping both children off at the shoe store Aug. 10 because he was heading to an orientation at Stanford University Medical Center in

Palo Alto and then to his twice-weekly medical assistant class in Fremont.

Dropping the children off with Campbell is a family routine, Ross said. When he opened the rear passenger door for Hassani, he said, the boy already was unbuckling his seat belt.

"I said, 'Hassani, go wait by the back door,' and he had already taken a first step out of the car," Ross said.

Ross said he carried the girl to the front of the store and told Campbell to open the back door. He then went back to the parking lot.

"When I got to back there, (Campbell) was already there. She says to me, 'Where's Hassani?'" Ross said. "I said, 'What do you mean?' I look to see if he's standing along by the car, but he's not."

Ross said he and Campbell asked her co-worker if he had seen the boy. Ross then ran back to his car and called police.

Oakland police Sgt. Ray Backman, a police spokesman, has said investigators are working with no significant clues and only about 50 tips.

Ross said his family was cooperating with authorities, although he felt police believed he and Campbell did something wrong.

Police Search for 5-year-old Disabled Boy
Aug. 17, 2009
<snipped>
Police in Oakland, Calif., are still searching for a 5-year-old Black boy with cerebral palsy whose foster father said vanished from a shoe store parking lot within a two-minute period of being left alone.

Speaking to CNN’s Nancy Grace, the foster dad, Louis Ross said that he went to the front door of the store to ask his fiancée, Jennifer Campbell, who works there, to open the back door. "By the time I got there, Jennifer is already out of the store, walking toward me, asking, 'Where is Hasanni?' And I say, 'What do you mean, where is Hasanni?' And I look around to the side, and he is no longer there."

Campbell regularly took care of Hasanni and his 19-month-old sister, Ross told Grace, adding that he voluntarily took a lie-detector test.

"They would stay in the back room and play with each other until she got off work, and they would all come home together, and I would see them at 9:30, 10 at night, when I got home from class," Ross said. "Initially, it didn't hit me. He's probably standing around there. ... When Hasanni gets frustrated, he freezes. So I thought he would still be on the side. And we all thought -- even Jennifer thought he was probably just hiding and joking around."

Hasanni, 3 feet tall and weighing 30 pounds, was wearing shorts and white braces on his ankles because of his cerebral palsy, a debilitating brain disease that inhibits motor skills.

$10,000 Reward Offered In Search For Disabled Boy
Aug 17, 2009 5:54 pm US/Pacific

Oakland police and Crime Stoppers announced a $10,000 reward Monday for information leading to the whereabouts of Hassani Campbell, a 5-year-old boy with cerebral palsy who disappeared a week ago.

Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason said, "We definitely need the public's help" in finding Hassani.

Thomason said police have only received about 50 tips, which he said is unusually low for a week-old missing child case.

He said police are following all the leads but haven't turned up anything so far.

Thomason said police are still treating Hassani's disappearance as a missing persons case but as time goes on the chances of finding him alive may be dwindling.

He said on Saturday law enforcement officials and volunteers searched marshland and shoreline areas at the tip of West Winton Avenue in Hayward as well as Coyote Hills Regional Park in Fremont but didn't find anything significant.

Family holds vigil for missing boy
Monday, August 17, 2009 | 5:35 PM
<snipped>
The grandmother of a missing disabled boy from Fremont, is holding a vigil for him in Oakland. It's near the shoe store where he was reported missing a week ago. A $10,000 crime stoppers reward is now being offered for information leading to the whereabouts of Hasanni Campbell.

Oakland's crime stoppers hope the reward, up to $10,000, will help bring new clues into the disappearance of Hasanni Campbell.

"In a high profile case we get a couple hundred, hundreds of calls, which gives us good leads that we can follow up on. In this case we've had less than 50," said Officer Jeff Thomason from Oakland Police.

Crime Stoppers of the Bay Area is also willing to add up to $2,000 for information that will help solve this case.

Burny Matthews is a former East Palo Alto police chief. He also worked in Oakland and Alameda.

"It gives a reason for somebody that may be on the edge, they may need the money really badly and he or she is willing to give some information to police to just give that one little brick that will finish the wall in that investigation," said Matthews.

FBI agents have joined the case and have helped searched the family's home in Fremont.

Police have canvassed the Rockridge area and other surrounding cities. On Saturday, volunteers searched two parks in Fremont and Hayward.

"And there are no signs of this boy and we want to try to locate him. It's been a number of days now. The more days that pass, the less likely we are to find him alive," said Officer Thomason.

Both foster parents attended the vigil and they said they are not giving up the in search for Hasanni.

"If you want to help keep our son in the news, don't let him become a picture in a milk carton box, five years after when he was never found," said Ross. "You want to help, that's what you do."

The boy's grandmother told ABC7 that she believes Ross had nothing to do with the little boy's disappearance. Police also said they are in contact with the foster father every day.

Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason said, "We definitely need the public's help" in finding Hassani.

Thomason said police have only received about 50 tips, which he said is unusually low for a week-old missing child case.

He said police are following all the leads but haven't turned up anything so far.

A vigil for the little boy Monday afternoon brought well wishers to the Rockridge District shoe store where Hasanni's foster father said he last saw the child.

Ross has been questioned by police and given a lie detector test. On Monday, Ross angrily addressed speculation that he might be involved in the disappearance of his foster son.

"'Oh, they were foster parents. Did they really care?' Well, you go talk to social services,” said Ross. “You wanna find the record straight? You go to them and ask them why they placed them with us. Because we gave a damn! These were our children. Don't try to take that from us. This wasn't a situation where we didn't care about those children. We've fought every inch for both of them."

Hasanni's foster family is also grappling with the loss of their one year-old foster daughter who has been removed from their care.

"All we want is our children home. We want Hasanni found and Aaliyah with us," said the boy’s foster mother Campbell.

Police indicated there were no new searches Monday amid concerns that time could be running out to find the boy unharmed.

Thomason said police are still treating Hassani's disappearance as a missing persons case but as time goes on the chances of finding him alive may be dwindling.

"As time goes on, that is going to be our fear; that this will be a recovery," said Oakland police spokesman Jeff Tomason. "But right now, we are still treating it as trying to find a little five year-old boy."

Missing boy's parents plead for his return
Monday, August 17, 2009
<snipped>
(08-17) 18:31 PDT OAKLAND -- The foster parents of a missing 5-year-old boy stood Monday at the spot in Oakland where Hasanni Campbell vanished a week ago to the minute, tearfully asking for the public's help as police announced a $10,000 reward for information on his whereabouts.

"If you have him, let him go!" Louis Ross, the boy's foster father, urged at the side entrance of the Rockridge neighborhood shoe store where Hasanni vanished at 4:18 p.m. Aug. 10. "This is our son!"

"I just want him home," added the boy's aunt and foster mother, Jennifer Campbell. "I just want him safe. I want him in our bed. Our home is empty. ... All we want is to have him home, safe, loved and cared for."

The Fremont couple wore T-shirts with photos of the youth, whose name is also spelled Hassani. The couple, along with relatives and friends, brought red candles and a balloon of the boy's beloved SpongeBob SquarePants cartoon character.

Police and the Crime Stoppers organization announced the reward Monday for help finding Hasanni, who has cerebral palsy.

Law enforcement sources say Ross reported taking the boy with him earlier that day to the Hayward Pick Your Part auto salvage yard.

The trip was unusual, authorities said, because even though Ross said he was looking for a particular part, witnesses told authorities that he had left without getting out of the car to look for it.

Ross said Monday that he went back to the yard with police last week as part of an effort to retrace his steps on the day the boy disappeared.

Police and sheriff's have searched the yard and local parks in recent days, authorities say, but found no sign of the missing boy.

Police have received only 50 tips about missing Fremont 5-year-old
Posted: 08/17/2009 01:17:03 PM PDT
Updated: 08/17/2009 07:21:40 PM PDT

Police have received just 50 tips about possible sightings of 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell in the week since he was reported missing.

When 8-year-old Sandra Cantu of Tracy went missing, 477 tips rolled into police in the first five days of her disappearance.

None of the tips or the searches of Oakland neighborhoods, the parklands of Coyote Hills near Fremont and the marshland area along the Hayward shoreline have turned up anything, police said.

There also is a lack of community support in the search for the missing boy with cerebral palsy. There were just a handful of people at a vigil this afternoon.

In the case of Cantu, whose body was found April 6 in a suitcase in an irrigation pond near the mobile home park where she lived, searches brought out at least 300 people. Neighbor Melissa Huckaby, 28, has been indicted on five counts of kidnapping, raping and killing her.

"I'm sick to my stomach there aren't more people out here," said Charity Edmondson, a friend of Jennifer Campbell's, the missing boy's aunt and foster mother. "It's heart wrenching. (Campbell) would go across the world to look for someone's child."

The vigil was marked by the foster parents alternately declining to speak to reporters and then pleading with them to keep the story in the limelight.

"Don't let him become a picture on a milk carton five years from now," said Ross, who has been interviewed by police and homicide investigators twice since the boy was reported missing.

Ross said his family has been cooperating with authorities, although he felt police believed he and Campbell did something wrong. Today he was emotional and crying while speaking about the boy.

"He was a damn child. ... That's why we care. If we didn't, who would?" Ross said. "He sat in foster care for two years, and his sister sat in foster care for two months."

Ross said there has been a lot of "speculation" about what happened to Hasanni. "These were our children," he said. "Don't try to take that from us. We've fought for them."

The boy's younger sister is not with the couple because she was placed in protective custody last week while the police investigation is ongoing.

Search and Vigil for Missing Boy
Posted: Monday, 17 August 2009 6:38PM

Friends and relatives held a vigil for the missing boy on Monday and his foster mother, Jennifer Campbell said she's praying for him to come home safe and sound.

"Somebody took your child, the worst thing you can imagine happening to him," she said. "It's all playing in the back of your mind and then you hope that maybe that didn't happen and maybe he's safe. I just want him home."

A good home is what Campbell and foster father Louis Ross said they have provided for the 5-year-old and his 1-year-old sister when their biological mother couldn't care for them.

Ross said Campbell disappeared from the parking lot of the Shuz of Rockridge shoe store in the 6000 block of College Avenue in Oakland around 4:15 p.m. on August 10.

Oakland police and the FBI are following all the leads they've already received, but they haven't turned up anything so far.

Oakland authorities are offering a reward for information they hope will help them find a missing 5-year-old boy.
Police and Crime Stoppers of Oakland announced a reward of up to $10,000 Monday for information leading to the whereabouts of 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell.

The boy has been missing since Aug. 10. when his foster father, Louis Ross, left him in a car parked outside a shoe store where his foster mother works.

Ross told authorities that he left the car to unlock the store door to give Hasanni, who wears braces on his legs, easier access. Hasanni was gone when he returned.

Oakland police say they have received less than 50 tips in the case.

Thank you Angel for the updates. So much is hidden, but really there. I'm still searching for birth/locale etc, I think it too is "hidden" e.g. different long + lat for one of them. Anybody, was there any aspect or transit that would, even if far fetched by definition, that might show this to be the case of the caregiver or her fiance?

I hope I don't make a complete fool out of myself and that my understanding of your question is correct. I know nothing about astrology except that I'm a Capricorn so I'm way out of my league in here.
We've found court records to support (tenatively) that Mr. Ross spent several years on the east coast, in the VA/MD area, at least between 2001 and 2005. Combined with these, being native of VA myself, and listening to Mr. Ross's accent (or lack thereof) I'm willing to bet he's originally from northern Va or southern MD originally.

Thanks. It's always best if we have the documented time and place of birth which will give us the true ASC (House 1), etc.
When place of birth & time is not available, Astros can work with relocated charts' using a 'Sunrise' time The planets remain in same signs but the House cusps may differ.

Found Louis Welton Ross III on ancestry born in Bexar County, Texas.
My ancestry account has expired so I can't get the full details. But for sure he was born in Bexar County which would be the San Antonio area.

I cannot help but wonder if the bio parents are involved. I know the charts point to no kidnapping but if it were a bio parent took him could that confuse things? I thought I had heard reported that the foster parents were seeking total custody, might that anger the bio parents? I guess I am just hoping that one more child was not betrayed by the people in his little life that were supposed to protect him and keep him safe from harm

Hi Sweetbaby, The bio dad is incarerated in an unknown location right now for sexual battery and the bio mom has CP and has been rumoured to have a drug issue. From videos of the bio mom, she would have difficulty looking after herself let alone arranging a snatch and keep of Hasanni.

UPDATED: Family pleas for help to find missing boy
Family members of a missing disabled child hit the streets of Oakland again, asking for help. Their little one has been missing for more than a week.
Tuesday, August 18, 2009 | 5:52 PM
<snipped>
The family members who are leafleting in the neighborhood said they are being sustained by hope and prayer. On Tuesday morning, investigators went to the shoe store and left in an unmarked car with the child's foster father, Louis Ross.

Trinity Schwabacher is Hasanni's aunt. She says somebody in the Rockridge neighborhood must know something.

"I mean this is too crowded a street  you know, cars like every five minutes. I mean come on man, somebody has got to have seen him," said Schwabacher.

This is why Schwabacher and other family members of the missing 5-year-old mobilized a dozen young volunteers from their church to hand out leaflets.

Pamela Clark is Hasanni's grandmother.

"If I didn't have hope, I couldn't do this, you know. I have hope that he'll be found safe and sound," said Clark.

"They end up finding kids after months, sometimes years so I yes, I do have hope. I pray every day," said volunteer LaShanda Collins.

They started from the shoe store on College Avenue where the boy vanished in the late afternoon a week ago Monday.

Hassani's foster dad, Louis Ross, says he briefly left him at the store's back parking space while he went into the store.

Ross says when he came back, the boy was gone.

"I'm sure somebody just grabbed him in the car and took off," said Clark.

Although police and the FBI have searched several parks, a Hayward wrecking yard and combed the neighborhood, going door to door, Hassani's godmother, Regina Douglas says they're leafleting areas investigators may have missed.

"It was said that about 300 homes did not respond to the door knocking. So we feel that needs to continue," she said.
Mark Gavriel was one of several people we spoke with who said they had never heard of this case.

"I have a Xerox machine in my house. We have to make some flyers now and put them up in Lake Merritt where I live," said Gavriel.

UPDATED: $10,000 Reward Offered For Missing Fremont Boy
Updated: 12:57 pm PDT August 18, 2009
<snipped>
Ross told KTVU he has been voluntarily speaking with police daily and that on Friday he retraced his steps with investigators, showing them the auto salvage yard he had driven to with Hasanni hours before the boy disappeared.

Ross said he went there to locate a part for an old vehicle he's working on and that he had Hasanni with him the entire time.

He insisted Hasanni wouldn't have wandered off and suspects someone kidnapped him.

Hasanni's foster parents said they will hold a vigil here in the Rockridge neighborhood every Monday at 4:15 p.m. -- to coincide with the time and day of the boy's disappearance -- until he is found.

Police indicated there were no new searches Monday amid concerns that time could be running out to find the boy unharmed.

Thomason said police are still treating Hassani's disappearance as a missing persons case but as time goes on the chances of finding him alive may be dwindling.

"As time goes on, that is going to be our fear; that this will be a recovery," said Oakland police spokesman Jeff Tomason. "But right now, we are still treating it as trying to find a little five year-old boy."

Drummond: Where is the public outcry over 5-year-old's disappearance?
Posted: 08/18/2009 04:36:04 PM PDT
<snipped>
Remember when 8-year-old Sandra Cantu disappeared five months ago from the Orchard Estates Mobile Home Park where she lived in Tracy?

The community's response was instant and massive. Volunteers from seven counties mobilized into search teams — slogging through fields in search of the little girl. Over and over, TV stations broadcast an eerie surveillance video: Sandra, carefree, innocent, laughing and skipping on the afternoon she disappeared.

The story tugged at our collective heartstrings.

"Nightline," the "Today" show, Fox News and even Dr. Phil came calling.

Then, a dairy farmer happened upon a suitcase containing the child's body floating in an irrigation pond. Melissa Huckaby, the mother of one of Sandra's friends, has been indicted on charges of kidnapping, raping and murdering the child — the monstrosity of which I will never get my mind around.

For the past nine days, a 5-year-old boy named Hasanni Campbell has been missing. He is three feet tall, weighs 40 pounds and suffers from cerebral palsy.

Why hasn't Hasanni's disappearance garnered even a fraction of the public attention and outcry of the Cantu case?

Why isn't Oakland up in arms? How come hundreds of organized volunteers aren't out beating the bushes in search of little Hasanni? The police have gotten just 50 tips compared with hundreds in the days after Sandra disappeared. Just a handful of people showed up at a vigil Monday near the shoe store where Hasanni was reported missing. In Tracy, hundreds held vigils to pray for Sandra's safe return.

A few days after Hasanni vanished, I drove over to Rockridge. I wanted to see if I could detect any signs of something amiss. I spotted a few "Missing" fliers of Hasanni in store windows. But other than that, people were going on about their nevermind.

I doubt that you could have gone anywhere in Tracy back in late March and early April and not known instantly that a little girl was missing.

Why has the public response in these two missing child cases been like night and day?

Sandra was from a relatively small town. She was a familiar face in the mobile home park where she lived with her mother. Neighbors knew her.

The video of Sandra skipping rope helped people to connect with her emotionally. She was everyone's little girl — a real flesh-and-blood child we could all identify with.

The case also had a relatively simple plot line. Little girl goes out to play. Little girl disappears. Mom says she would never go off without asking permission. Her parents had less than wholesome credentials, but the public didn't hold that against the little girl.

Hasanni's story is more complicated. He has been raised by his aunt and her fiance since December because mom reportedly had substance-abuse problems and couldn't care for Hasanni.

But all that should matter is that a disabled little boy has been missing for nine days.

Kari Hulac was the editor for the Bay Area News Group's coverage of the Sandra Cantu case. She now works as an online editor in Oakland.

Hulac says she has also noted a big difference in public interest between Sandra and Hasanni.

"I'm trying to figure out whether it's racial, whether it's the parents' behavior — or whether people are assigning blame," Hulac said. "I thought the public response to this disappearance was going to be bigger."

Hasanni is African-American. Sandra was white and Latina.

Ross said he left Hasanni alone for a few moments. Some have been quick to accuse Ross of involvement in Hasanni's disappearance — though there is no evidence to support that.

Adam Walsh, let us not forget, was abducted from a busy Sears parking lot in Hollywood, Fla.

Speculate all you want.

The point is, a three-foot child with a serious disability has been missing for one week and two days.

How is it that we, as a community, don't seem that bothered about that?

Oakland Tribune columnist Tammerlin Drummond wrote recently about the difference between the meager response to Campbell's case and the public attention generated by the search for Tracy resident Sandra Cantu last March.

Family and Friends of Missing Boy Pass Out Fliers in Hopes of Finding Child
8/18/2009 6:58:00 PM
<snipped>
The family and friends of a missing 5-year-old with cerebral palsy are continuing their search for the boy by handing out fliers in the neighborhood where he was last seen.

Hasanni Campbell’s grandmother Pamela Clark and aunt Jennifer organized the group. On Tuesday they grabbed fliers and spread out to cover as much ground as possible.

“Oh it’s really hard. Hope keeps me alive,” said Pamela.

Some of the volunteers who never knew Hasanni say it’s important to do whatever it takes to find the boy.

Lashawenda Collins tells KRON 4’s Terisa Estacio why she felt the need to help, “I have nieces, I have a daughter. And my friends have kids also. And it could be one of us out here, looking.

The five-year-old has been missing since August 10th when his foster father, Louis Ross, left him next to a car parked outside a shoe store where Jennifer, Ross’ fiancée, works.

More Questions For Foster Father Of Missing Boy
Posted: 5:42 pm PDT August 17, 2009
Updated: 10:52 pm PDT August 18, 2009
<snipped>
Tuesday night, police in Oakland had more questions for the foster father of a Fremont boy with cerebral palsy who has been missing for over a week.

Hasanni Campbell's foster father Louis Ross said he last saw the boy when they were in Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood on Monday, August 10th.

Police confirmed to KTVU that Tuesday morning, officers brought Ross back to the driveway where Hasanni disappeared for further questioning and to retrace his steps.

Hassani, who lived in Fremont with his foster parents, Ross and Jennifer Campbell, was reported missing from the parking lot of the Shuz of Rockridge shoe store in the 6000 block of College Avenue in Oakland about 4:15 p.m. last Monday.

The little boy's grandmother, godmother, other relatives and volunteers were once again in the neighborhood Tuesday to hand out flyers with the boy's picture, hoping someone might have seen something that would help find him.

When asked if she thought Ross had anything to with Hassini's disappearance, the boy's grandmother Pamela Clark replied “No. No, absolutely not. I trust him completely."

Ross has been questioned several times by police and given a lie detector test. On Monday, he angrily addressed speculation that he might be involved in the disappearance of his foster son.

Hasanni's foster family is also grappling with the loss of their one year-old foster daughter who has been removed from their care.

"All we want is our children home. We want Hasanni found and Aaliyah with us," said the boy’s foster mother Campbell.

Ross told KTVU he has been voluntarily speaking with police daily and that on Friday he retraced his steps with investigators, showing them the auto salvage yard he had driven to with Hasanni hours before the boy disappeared.

Ross said he went there to locate a part for an old vehicle he's working on and that he had Hasanni with him the entire time.

He insisted Hasanni wouldn't have wandered off and suspects someone kidnapped him.

I think the reason for lack of outcry, is that it looks like just another family situation. Thats my opinion and does not negate the need for justice. I have been following this and I am heartbroken, he was a darling child, I want to hug him every time I look at his picture.
Its not a racial thing. Maybe the public is becoming numb to this alarming trend of children molested, disappearing or killed by parents. Dear God, please bless and hold Hasanni close.

Clock is Ticking for Missing Disabled Boy Hassani Campbell
August 19, 2009 10:25 AM
<snipped>
NEW YORK (CBS) “The longer he’s out there and not found, it doesn’t look good,” Louis Ross says, choking up, in an interview about his missing foster son, 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell.

Campbell disappeared Aug. 10 in Oakland, Calif. when Ross left him in standing near the family car in the parking lot behind the shoe store where his fiancée, Campbell’s biological aunt and foster mom, Jennifer Campbell works. Upon seeing that their son had disappeared Ross and Campbell called 911 and began frantically searching.

“Hasanni does not wander away,” Ross told CBS 5 San Francisco.

How can Ross be so sure?

Hasanni was born with Cerebral Palsy, a type of permanent disorder that inhibits development of movement and posture, i.e., he had trouble walking, and according to Ross, could do so with concentration.

Contrary to early reports that described him wearing metal braces on his legs, Ross told reporters he wears plastic braces on his feet, which would not be visible over his clothes. He also said that if his son’s braces were removed he would still be able to walk, but would be looking down at the ground in focus.

Hasanni was left alone for “about five minutes, probably less,” Ross said in the same interview.

When asked what he think did happen in those five minutes, Ross tears up: “as a father, those are thoughts you don’t want to entertain.”

Jeff Thomason says Ross is mostly likely correct in his assumption that Hassani did not walk away: “anything’s possible but it’s not likely…right now no witnesses saw Hassani walking away from that area.”

The FBI has joined the search, along with several other local agencies. On the day of his disappearance a massive search was launched, including the use of a California Highway Patrol airplane and the K-9 unit. In the past eight days they have gone door-to-door in parts of Oakland and searched numerous locations, including a regional park and his foster parents’ home in Freemont.

“This is a continuous investigation that will be conducted day and night,” Officer Seth Neri said in a press conference.

The Oakland PD has been in touch with the biological mother, who lives in San Francisco, and told Crimesider that she is not a person of interest at this point.

More Questions For Foster Father Of Missing Boy
Updated: 8:43 am PDT August 19, 2009

Tuesday night, police in Oakland had more questions for the foster father of a Fremont boy with cerebral palsy who has been missing for over a week.

Hasanni Campbell's foster father Louis Ross said he last saw the boy when they were in Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood on Monday, August 10th.

Police confirmed to KTVU that Tuesday morning, officers brought Ross back to the driveway where Hasanni disappeared for further questioning and to retrace his steps.

Hassani, who lived in Fremont with his foster parents, Ross and Jennifer Campbell, was reported missing from the parking lot of the Shuz of Rockridge shoe store in the 6000 block of College Avenue in Oakland about 4:15 p.m. last Monday.

The little boy's grandmother, godmother, other relatives and volunteers were once again in the neighborhood Tuesday to hand out flyers with the boy's picture, hoping someone might have seen something that would help find him.

Police told KTVU there has not been any confirmed sighting of the boy since Ross reported him missing.

Ross has been questioned several times by police and given a lie detector test. On Monday, he angrily addressed speculation that he might be involved in the disappearance of his foster son.

"'Oh, they were foster parents. Did they really care?' Well, you go talk to social services,” said Ross. “You wanna find the record straight? You go to them and ask them why they placed them with us. Because we gave a damn! These were our children. Don't try to take that from us. This wasn't a situation where we didn't care about those children. We've fought every inch for both of them."

Ross told KTVU he has been voluntarily speaking with police daily and that on Friday he retraced his steps with investigators, showing them the auto salvage yard he had driven to with Hasanni hours before the boy disappeared.

Ross said he went there to locate a part for an old vehicle he's working on and that he had Hasanni with him the entire time.

Full mailbox hampers search for Hasanni
Police have been asking the public for help in finding 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell, who was last seen in Oakland more than a week ago. But, it turns out that tipsters who called one police hotline were not allowed to leave messages.
Wednesday, August 19, 2009 | 11:48 AM
<snipped>
Police do not know how long the problem existed.

The fliers police have been handing out across the Bay Area for the last week and a half show the Crime Stoppers phone number. Police say they check this voicemail every day. It is supposed to be a way for people to leave anonymous tips for investigators, but as of Wednesday morning, people could not leave any messages at all.

It has been nine days since Hasanni went missing. He was last seen by his foster father behind a Rockridge neighborhood shoe store. Police have been asking the public to call in with tips about the little boy with cerebral palsy.

But, if they called the Crime Stoppers number listed on the fliers being passed out in the Rockridge neighborhood they got a message saying, "Thanks for calling the Crime Stoppers Hotline. No messages may be taken for this mailbox. It is full. Thank you for calling."

Police say part of the problem is that one person has been calling the voicemail and clogging it with messages unrelated to the missing boy. They also say fliers passed out to the media have two other numbers listed including numbers for investigators and police dispatch. They hope people will call those.

Searches in the neighborhood and around the East Bay have come up empty and so far, fewer than 50 tips have come in.

"We do need the public's help in locating this young boy and hopefully as time goes on, we'll be able to find him. Time is against us right now. This is the ninth day that he's been missing. As time goes on, it's less likely we're going to find him alive," Oakland police officer Jeff Thomason told ABC7.

Police are still calling this a "missing person's case." They say they have a few more small leads to follow up on, but they do not have any more searches planned because they just do not have any large tips to go on.

The police tip line for information about missing 5-year-old Fremont boy Hasanni Campbell was restored this morning after reports callers were unable to leave messages.

"We had one individual who called the tip line and left 39 or 40 messages with information that was not credible," Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason said. "We're contacting that person to ask them to stop, and the tip line should be open now."

Investigators are asking anyone with information on Hasanni to call 510-777-8572 or 510-777-3211. If either number doesn't work, investigator Sgt. Gus Galindo is available at 510-238-7934.

We're continuing to investigate, but at this point there is no evidence that a crime was committed. It's still being treated as a missing person case, Thomason said.

"Investigators today are following up on what leads they have, but we're starting to get to that point of feeling helpless," Thomason said. "That's why we're asking anyone who saw the boy to call in and give us some facts. People calling in now are saying things like, 'I had a dream he was here,' or offering opinions. Opinions don't help. We need people to call in with facts about times and places they saw him."

Boy's Disappearance Puzzles Investigators
Wednesday, 19 August 2009 1:13PM
<snipped>
Police in Oakland say they're frustrated by the disappearance of five-year-old Hassani Campbell, and they’re asking the public to get more involved in the search for the missing boy.

It’s been nine days now since Campbell vanished from the corner of College and Harwood in Oakland’s Rockridge neighborhood, where his foster father left him alone in the car for just a few moments.

Oakland Police Officer Jeff Thomason says the disabled boy’s foster parents are cooperating, and they’re not suspected at all of any wrongdoing.

”There’s no evidence right now that this is a kidnapping case, or that a crime has been committed,” said Thomason.

”We are asking the public to call in with any credible tips,” said Thomason. “We have received tips on our hotline, and the investigators have fielded calls. Most of the calls are people with feelings or opinions about the case, but we need people with credible information, and we’re not getting that right now.”

Concern Growns Over Missing Fremont Boy
Aug 19, 2009 3:35 pm US/Pacific
<snipped>
Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason said Wednesday that police are "very concerned" about a 5-year-old boy with cerebral palsy who has now been missing for nine days.

Thomason said police are still treating Hassani's disappearance as a missing persons case and that there is no evidence a crime has been committed.

"We're asking the public to call if they have any credible tips," Thomason said.

He said police have followed up on all of the approximately 50 tips they've received so far but none have panned out.

On Monday, Oakland police and Crime Stoppers announced a $10,000 reward for information leading to the whereabouts of Hassani.

Thomason said one caller left about 40 unhelpful messages with Crime Stoppers and clogged its voicemail box. But the voicemail box is now open again, he said.

Thomason said police talk to Hassani's foster parents every day and that they are being cooperative.

On Saturday, law enforcement officials and volunteers searched marshland and shoreline areas at the tip of West Winton Avenue in Hayward as well as Coyote Hills Regional Park in Fremont but didn't find anything significant.

Thomason said police have also searched North Oakland thoroughly.

I wonder if LE asked the foster dad why he didn't use a cell phone to call his GF and ask her to open the back door.
I believe the charts. This was not a kidnapping IMO.

Police sought "sword or cutting instrument" in search of missing boy's home, foster father's car
Posted: 08/19/2009 08:41:05 PM PDT
Updated: 08/19/2009 10:44:57 PM PDT

A search warrant issued the day after Hasanni Campbell was reported missing shows that police were looking for a "sword or cutting instrument" and biological evidence from the 5-year-old boy in his foster parents' home. Authorities also confirmed Wednesday that Louis Ross, the boy's foster father, failed a polygraph test given by the FBI.

The search warrant, issued at 5:45 a.m. Aug. 11 in Alameda County, was for the home on Roxie Terrace in Fremont, where the boy lives with his foster parents, Ross, 38, and Jennifer Campbell, 30.

The warrant was also for Ross' 2002 BMW.

Police recovered a pair of latex gloves, eight DNA swabs and four fingerprint lifts from the car but took nothing from the home, authorities confirmed Wednesday. It was unclear why investigators were looking for a sword or cutting instrument.

New Details Emerge In Search For Missing Boy
Posted: 3:37 pm PDT August 19, 2009
Updated: 10:50 pm PDT August 19, 2009
<snipped>
KTVU has uncovered new details about the ongoing police search for a five-year-old boy who disappeared in Oakland’s Rockridge district over a week ago, including what authorities were looking for when they searched the home where the boy lives on Tuesday, August 11.

One new item that surfaced Wednesday was a copy of the original search warrant issued last week to search the Fremont home of Ross and Jennifer Campbell.

The warrant was issued at 5:45 a.m. on the day after Hasanni went missing. The warrant allowed police to search inside the house where Hasanni lived as well as a 2002 BMW belonging to Ross

According to the warrant, police searched for biological evidence belonging to Hasanni, and a sword or cutting instrument.

On Wednesday, KTVU also obtained the inventory sheet that listed what officers took during the search. The list included one pair of latex gloves taken from the vehicle as well as eight DNA swabs and four fingerprint lifts taken from the car.

The inventory sheet shows no items were taken from the home, though Ross has said officers took a cell phone and paperwork.

KTVU also learned from authorities that certain evidence indicates it is unlikely Hasanni wandered off.

Law enforcement sources told KTVU that search dogs never led their handlers on what's called a "hot trail" on the afternoon Hasanni disappeared, meaning the dogs never picked up a scent that led handlers away from the lot.

Sources said the dogs did pick up Hasanni's scent inside Ross's BMW. They said the boy was either snatched by someone as he was standing by the car or he was never in the back lot that day.

Law enforcement sources confirmed to KTVU Wednesday that Ross failed a polygraph test given by the FBI last week. During previous interviews, Ross has told KTVU he answered all questions during the polygraph honestly.

KTVU also learned that the boy's foster mother Jennifer Campbell arrived at the shoe store where she works sometime between 8:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. on the day Hasanni went missing.

Additionally, two workers at an auto salvage yard in Hayward reported seeing Ross and Hasanni in the BMW that same morning.

On Wednesday, KTVU spoke with the father of two young daughters who lives adjacent to the lot. He says it's hard to fathom how a child could go missing without anyone seeing him.

"There's so much traffic. There's a lot of pedestrian traffic; cars coming and going at all times. There's restaurants right across the street," said Rockridge resident Steve Shochet. "It's hard to understand how someone could potentially kidnap a child with so many people who could be witnesses."

Police search for a sword in Hasanni's case
Wednesday, August 19, 2009 | 11:20 PM
<snipped>
After nine days of intensive searching, police are down to their last few leads in the disappearance of young Hasanni Campbell and they need the public's help. There are new details about a search warrant served the day after Hasanni went missing.

According to the warrant, police were looking for a sword or cutting instrument, biological evidence, and his foster's father's BMW.

Nine days ago Hasanni was last seen by his foster father behind a Rockridge neighborhood shoe store.

Through all of his pleas, Louis Ross -- Hasanni's foster father -- remains under a cloud of suspicion because he's the only one who can place Hasanni behind the store the day he disappeared.

"I was absolutely under a cloud of suspicion," says Mark Klass.

Klaas says the investigation for his daughter, Polly, who was abducted and murdered in 1993, could not go forward until he was cleared. The same for Ross.

"And I think at that point, the people will buy into his story a little more and you'll see a lot more public involvement in trying to recover little Hasanni," says Klaas.

Despite the cloud of suspicion, police say Hasanni's foster parents have been cooperating.

The Crime Stoppers Hotline number is now up and running. But, police say the best number for people to call is 510-777-3211, which is Oakland Police Dispatch, a number manned around the clock.

There is alot of hope to go around in the Rockridge neighborhood, but police are saying that because they have no new leads they have no new searches planned for Hasanni.

There is now a memorial for Hasanni in the parking lot where he was last seen.
Passersby like Toni Sands and her daughter cannot help but stop and wonder.

"I just wanted to go by and say a prayer, and hope that God answers it," she told ABC7.

The Last Seen chart clearly points to death by homicide, 'parental' involvement, lies and deceit (see post #1 in this Thread).

Now that we factually know Louis Ross failed the LDT and police are looking for a sword or cutting instrument, it would seem obvious who is responsible for little Hasanni's tragic fate.

Remember on 8/14/09 when Detectives pulled up to Ross's door & took him away for questioning? The chart cast for that Event shows SUN at 22 Leo --- the 'kill or be killed' degree as well as the sign & degree of being one's own worst enemy --- partile opposed JUPITER Lord 5 the Child (Hasanni). This is a solid homicide testimony...



http://i428.photobucket.com/albums/qq5/Soulscape12/Case%20Briefings/DetectivesQuestionRoss.gif




In addition to SUN, Lord 1 MARS (Louis Ross) is also in the 22nd 'kill or be killed' degree. I find it beyond 'coincidental' that prime significators JUPITER (Hasanni) and MARS (Louis Ross) as well as SUN which denotes the essence of the Event are all in the 'kill or be killed' 22nd degree.

The Part of Death 29 Scorpio is in Fateful Degree (same degree as the NODES), as is HADES, another death marker, and TORO, an Asteroid of Brutality. These placements confirm catastrophe, tragedy, fatality.

The weight of the chart is in the 3rd House (cars, transport) and the 8th House (death).

The 3rd House of Information True or False is cardinal (Capricorn) with Lord 3 SATURN in a mutable (lying) sign. Lord 1 MARS (Ross) separates from square to L3 SATURN --- damning testimony Louis Ross was not truthful.

ETA: chart added 8/21/09

Thanks,

The foster father of a missing 5-year-old boy with cerebral palsy sent an angry text message threatening to leave the child alone at a BART platform just 10 days before Hasanni Campbell vanished, according to court documents released today.

In addition, Louis Ross "voiced some misgivings" about caring for a disabled child when he talked to officers investigating the child's Aug. 10 disappearance, according to a statement that Oakland police submitted to justify obtaining a search warrant of Ross' Fremont home.

According to the police account, Ross sent an expletive-laden text message July 31 to Jennifer Campbell, his fiancee and the aunt and foster mother of Hasanni.

"This is f- over, I will watch her but he will be out on the BART and its your responsibility to hey (sic) him so f - you," Ross texted at 9:50 a.m., police said. The references appear to be to Hasanni and his 1-year-old sister.

As for the sword, Ross said he had told police about it and that officers had later returned and picked it up. He said he kept it under a mattress.

"It wasn't a big deal," he said.

The foster father of a missing 5-year-old with cerebral palsy reportedly sent an expletive-laden text threatening to leave the child alone on a BART platform just 10 days before the boy disappeared.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that court documents released Thursday revealed not only the angry text, but also that Louis Ross "voiced some misgivings" about caring for a special needs child when he talked to officers investigating the Hassani Campbell's disappearance.

Ross sent the angry message July 31 to Jennifer Campbell, who is his fiancee and the boy's aunt and foster mother according to a statement submitted by Oakland police to justify obtaining a search warrant if Ross' Fremont home.

The Chronicle reports that court papers show the relationship between Ross and Campbell was violent at times and that police had heard reports that Ross had threatened his fiance with a sword.

Nothing was seized from the home, but court records show that Ross voluntarily surrendered his cell phone to police.

When The Chronicle asked Ross about any domestic disputes, he downplayed them, saying he was "venting."

Ross also denied leaving Hasanni at BART and said he has been cooperating "100 percent" with police.

Search of Hasanni Campbell's Foster Father's House Fails to Turn Up Sword
8/20/2009 9:47:00 AM
<snipped>
Police are still searching for a sword or other cutting object that they say could lead to the discovery of five year old Hasanni Campbell.

Investigators are also confirming reports Ross sent a text message on July 31st to Campbell threatening to leave Hasanni on a BART platform.

The warrant says Ross told police he had left Hasanni and the daughter home alone on a previous occasion while he went to the bank to conduct a transaction.

"He had also voiced some misgivings about caring for a developmentally disabled child during the interview," the warrant says. Ross told KRON 4's Terisa Estacio several days after Hasanni's disappearance that the child had developmental difficulties.

Ross told Terisa he left Hasanni outside his BMW but the search warrant quotes the foster father as saying the child was still inside the vehicle.

"Another concern amongst this investigator and others in the unit was the fact that this child, who was severely disabled, disappeared in a croweded business district with no witnesses while Ross took the 1-year old daughter to Jennifer Campbell who was working at Shoes of Rockridge," the warrant says.

The affidavit says neighbors told Fremont police they hadn't seen Hasanni for at least two weeks before the child was reported missing.

Foster father of missing Fremont boy sent angry text message about abandoning boy on the BART platform
Posted: 08/20/2009 03:36:29 PM PDT
<snipped>
The Alameda County Superior Court records showing that police recovered that information were temporarily available early today but were quickly sealed by police once the information about the text message got out to the media.

Information in a search warrant issued at 5:45 a.m. Aug. 11, the day after the boy was reported missing, shows that police were looking for a "sword or cutting instrument" and biological evidence (hair, blood or skin cells) from the 5-year-old boy at the Roxie Terrance home in Fremont, where the family lives. They did not recover a sword or cutting instrument and it is not clear why police were looking for such an item.

An inventory sheet from the warrant also shows that police recovered a pair of latex gloves, eight DNA swabs and four "fingerprint lifts" from Ross' 2002 BMW. Investigators took nothing from the home during the search.

Ross, 38, has not returned repeated calls for comment.

For a second straight day, Oakland police spokesman Officer Jeff Thomason held a morning news conference at police headquarters today. He said investigators have no new leads and have received no new tips about the missing boy. About 50 tips have come into police to date.

"The main goal of this case is to find Hasanni Campbell," Thomason said.

Foster Father of Missing Boy Defends Self in Interview, Says Focus of Investigation Should Be on the Child
8/20/2009 5:20:00 PM
<snipped>
The foster father of a missing 5-year-old with cerebral palsy is defending himself, saying the focus of the investigation should not be on him, but on his missing boy.

While Ross may not want too much focus on himself, information in a search warrant regarding a sword, a heated text message recovered from phone records and possible instances of domestic violence against Jennifer, his fiancée, has put him in the spotlight.

KRON 4’s Haaziq Madyun spoke to Ross, who says he has an explanation for all of the above, including the sword, “Jennifer is uncomfortable with the sword,” he said. “I think that may have been one of my text messages, that she didn’t like the sword in the house and I kept the sword underneath my bed for protection, it is the only weapon in the house.

Regarding the text message laced with profanity sent to Jennifer, where he threatens to leave Hasanni at a Bay Are Rapid Transit station, Ross says he never left the boy at a train station, “I said get the f-out. At the time I am responding to a comment she made and I am venting. Do I regret it? I regret it not that the world knows about it, I regret that I said it.”

With Jennifer by his side, Ross tells Haaziq there has never been any domestic violence in their relationship. Jennifer stresses that none of these things are important right now, “It doesn’t matter what you think of us, or our relationship, or anything else. Just find Hasanni.”

Missing Boy's Foster Dad Fails Polygraph
Aug 20, 2009 6:37 pm US/Pacific
<snipped>
The foster father of a missing 5-year-old Fremont boy with cerebral palsy told CBS 5 on Thursday that he failed a polygraph examination, also known as a lie detector test, as part of the police investigation of the case.

Despite the text threat, failed polygraph test and the execution of a search warrant at Ross' home, police maintained Thursday that he was not a suspect in the boy's disappearance.

Nothing was seized from his home, but court records showed that Ross voluntarily surrendered his cell phone to police.

In the search warrant affidavit, investigators also said they were mystified that Hasanni could disappear from "a crowded business district with no witnesses."

Further, the affadavit said bloodhounds were unable to detect Hasanni's scent outside the store where Ross said he left the boy.

The affadavit also said police believed foul play might have been involved.

The court papers showed the relationship between Ross and his fiancee was violent at times and that police had reports that Ross threatened her with a sword.

That sword was among the items that police were looking for when they searched Ross' 2002 BMW and his home on Roxie Terrace in Fremont -- where he lives with his fiancee, the missing boy and the boy's younger sister.

When Ross was asked about any domestic disputes, he downplayed them, saying simply that he was "venting." He also stressed that he had been cooperating "100 percent" with police.

UPDATED: Missing boy's foster dad sent angry text
There are new details about the mindset of the foster father of a missing child.
Thursday, August 20, 2009 | 6:41 PM
<snipped>
The warrant says records from Ross' cell phone revealed "a relationship that appeared to have some instances of domestic violence."

Ross says he has never abused his fiancée Jennifer Campbell, who is also Hasanni's aunt.
Rodd told ABC7, investigators kept pushing towards that conclusion during their interviews.

"They were trying to say that, they even told me that, 'So you're very emotional, aren't you, you must have got to the point where you just snapped,'" Ross said.

Ross says they were talking heatedly about a previous argument terminating their relationship and it had nothing to do with harming Hasanni.

"I said, 'this is over,' I was ending the relationship, completely; this wasn't about me getting rid of Hasanni," Ross said.

Investigators also said in the affidavit that "Ross voiced some misgivings about caring for a developmentally disabled child."

Campbell and Ross say that is rubbish.

"There was no conversation we ever had, either verbal or text message at all," Campbell said.

"Saying that we had misgivings," Ross added. "Every child in every home has their issues."

Foster father of missing Fremont boy sent angry text message about abandoning 5-year-old
Posted: 08/20/2009 03:36:29 PM PDT
Updated: 08/20/2009 06:35:09 PM PDT

The Alameda County Superior Court records showing that police recovered that information were temporarily available early today but were quickly sealed by police once the information about the text message got out to the media.

The last two days have brought out more questions than answers about Ross and Campbell and their roles — if any — in the disappearance of the boy.

Authorities confirmed Wednesday that Ross failed a polygraph test given by the FBI a few days after the boy was reported missing. Campbell, 30, did not take the test because she is six months pregnant and told authorities she was worried the test could harm her unborn baby.

Foster Parents Discuss Troubling Investigation Details
Posted: 9:34 pm PDT August 20, 2009
Updated: 11:06 pm PDT August 20, 2009
<snipped>
During the interview at their home, Campbell and Ross told KTVU Thursday they want to refocus attention on trying to find the missing boy. The couple denied allegations Ross may have had something to do with the disappearance.

They said when they gave police permission to access their phone records more than a week ago, they told investigators about the angry, obscenity-laced text Ross sent Campbell about ten days earlier during an argument.

"It's like we had an argument and we worked through it. And now it's like the argument is being twisted and turned into something it isn't," said Campbell.

"The situation resolved," explained Ross. "I calmed down and never left the house."

They also said they were the ones who told police Ross kept a sword under his bed. That sword was among the times included in the police search warrant of the home and, according to the couple, was taken by authorities last week.

Campbell and Ross showed KTVU a list of items police took from Ross's car. However, there was no mention of latex gloves disclosed in court documents as one of the items taken from the vehicle.

The couple said they volunteered to give DNA samples to police who visited the house Thursday morning so that they could be ruled out as suspects.

Missing Fremont boy's foster father speaks out about Hasanni
Posted: 08/20/2009 08:02:05 PM PDT
Updated: 08/20/2009 11:47:50 PM PDT
<snipped>
I failed Hasanni the last couple of days," said Ross, 38, in a telephone interview Thursday. "Every single day I am having to defend myself, but that is wrong. By defending myself, I am making it about me. "... Think about it. "... It's not about Hasanni anymore."

The text message read: "This is (expletive) over, I will watch her (the boy's 1-year-old sister) but he (Hasanni) will be out on the BART and its your responsibility to hey (sic) him so (expletive) you," sources confirmed Thursday.

Ross said the message was not meant to imply that he planned to leave the boy, who has cerebral palsy, alone at BART but rather that he wanted to meet Campbell at a Union City BART station to give her the boy.

Ross said he sent the angry text message because the two had an argument, and he was going to end the relationship.

He said he eventually calmed down, apologized and decided not to break off the relationship. "I should not have let the situation escalate," he said.

Ross said that over the past year, he got to know Hasanni, who loved music, books and SpongeBob SquarePants. "His interest was books and people reading to him "... and even his little sister was picking up that habit from him,'" Ross said.

Hasanni also seemed to enjoy music and had a small guitar that he played, Ross said, adding that he was thinking about buying the boy a piano and had taken him to a violin teacher. Ross said that Hasanni had done "OK" in school and that the couple wanted him to understand that his cerebral palsy should not be a deterrent to success.

In fact, Ross, who is unemployed, said Hasanni "put the fire under me to be a neurologist."

"Medicine was my ultimate goal," he said, adding that he was heading to an orientation at Stanford Medical Center the day the boy went missing.

When the addresses are googled i.e. for routes from one point to another, there are several places 'Ross could have "thrown" the body easily from a vehicle, especially right before the merge. It is also a route serviced by public transit. He could have taken a "pkg" on the bus, that would explain why the dogs didn't find anything. Are there transit cameras in this city? Worth a look.

No Wonder There Isn't a Stronger Outcry About the Missing Boy
August 21, 2009
<snipped>
The Oakland Tribune's Tammerlin Drummond complained in a piece yesterday that people weren't out searching for 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell, who allegedly went missing in Rockridge, suggesting that it was because the boy isn't white. Drummond also argued that there was no evidence to suspect Campbell's foster father was involved in the child's disappearance. But of course, there has been ample reason to suspect the foster father from early on in the case, and now there's even more. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, newly released court documents show that Louis Ross threatened to abandon the child just ten days before the boy supposedly went missing.

But more to the point, people have been justified for the past week for not partaking in a massive search of the boy. Drummond compared Hasanni's disappearance to the case of Sandra Cantu who went missing in Tracy. But there is one major difference that explains people's reactions. There was never any question about Sandru's parents being involved in her disappearance, but from the beginning, police questioned Ross' version of events — and rightly so. Investigators searched his home and a junkyard that Ross said he took the boy to before going to Rockridge. Indeed, there is reason to question whether the little boy was ever in Rockridge the day Ross reported him missing. So why should people be blamed for not embarking on what could be a wild goose chase, when police themselves are not doing it?

Foster father of missing Fremont boy sends angry text, but says he's not to blame
Posted: 08/21/2009 06:14:07 AM PDT

Louis Ross says he's failed his foster son in the past few days because he has been focused on defending himself rather than searching for the missing 5-year-old.

Ross also has been on the defensive after information about items seized from his home and car came to light on Wednesday through search warrant documents. A warrant issued Aug. 11, the day after Hasanni was reported missing, shows that police were looking for a "sword or cutting instrument" and biological evidence, such as hair, blood or skin cells, at the couple's Fremont home.

Ross said police took his small decorative sword that he kept under his bed for protection, at least one of Campbell's poems, a camera and his cell phone.

From his 2002 BMW, the FBI took swabs, the rear seat of the vehicle, carpet from the car, two car seats, molding and latches, according to a receipt of property from the FBI. An Alameda County Superior Court document also shows that four fingerprint lifts, eight DNA swabs and one pair of latex gloves were taken from the car.

Ross said that over the past year, he got to know Hasanni, who loved music, books and SpongeBob SquarePants. "His interest was books and people reading to him "... and even his little sister was picking up that habit from him,'" Ross said.

Meanwhile, Oakland police said Thursday they had no new leads and had received no new viable tips about the missing boy. About 50 tips have come in to police to date. Police have become increasingly concerned because the longer a child is missing, the slimmer the chances are for a positive outcome, Oakland police spokesman Officer Jeff Thomason said. He said the department still considers the disappearance a missing-persons case. A homicide detective was assigned to the case last week because that detective is experienced in dealing with such cases, police said. Police have not said they have any suspects in the case.

You guys are incredible. FYI- the Fremont area, where the foster parents live North of San Jose and is made up of exactly what Soulscape mentions is as noted on the map from AWC. Mostly made up of new development and the Bay primarily reaches up to the side of the Penisula, but I wonder about Union City north of FremontMap of Union City, CA by MapQuest (http://www.mapquest.com/maps?zipcode=94587).
Which is just south of Oakland and the Freeway 880 directly takes you into Oakland.

The direction and mileage fits. Moreover, because the Part of Death is disposited by JUPITER in Aquarius, and Aquarius is associated with (among other things) quarries, this may well be a fruitful place to search.

Missing 5 year olds father fails polygraph test
August 21, 6:07 PM
<snipped>
Louis Ross, the foster father of Hassani Campbell tells the media that he failed the polygraph test. Ross said, "they said I was 99% deceptive. That means I did not pass the control test questions, either."

A statement submitted by Oakland police to justify obtaining a search warrant for Ross' home came to light on Thursday. The document stated that 10 days before the boy disappeared, Ross sent a text message that said, "This is f*****g over, I will watch her, but he will be out on the BART and its your responsibility to hey (sic) him so f*** you." (BART is the Bay Area Rapid Transit)

The document also stated that Ross brandished a sword at Campbell, that he left Hassani and Hassani's one year old sister alone in the home while he went to the bank, and that he had some misgivings about caring for a disabled child.

Ross response was that the sword is ornamental, that he left the napping kids home for 5 minutes while he went to the bank, and that he never said he had misgivings about caring for a disabled child.

It was also noted in the documents that a neighbor said that they had not seen Hassani for 2 weeks.

On Thursday, police search dogs were unable to detect Hassani's scent in the parking lot of the shoe store.

"In any case we keep an open mind. Whether it's a missing persons case, whether it's a criminal case, in any type of case we try to keep an open mind and we try to cover all of our bases. And that's why the search warrant was done last week," said Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason.

There is a $10,000 reward for information leading to the boy's whereabouts. Officer Jeff Thomason, an Oakland police spokesman, said the department still considers the case a missing person investigation, but a homicide investigator has just been put in charge of the case.

Fundraiser for missing 5-year-old
Oakland police continue to ask for the public's help in finding a 5-year old disabled boy who was reported missing nearly two weeks ago.
Friday, August 21, 2009 | 7:17 PM
<snipped>
It has been 11 days since Hasanni vanished. The balloons at an impromptu memorial are starting to deflate.

"We want to focus on Hasanni," his foster father Louis Ross said.
Ross and his girlfriend Jennifer Campbell tell ABC7 the only thing they want is to have the 5-year-old back home.

Campbell, who is Hasanni's aunt, says it was Ross who insisted on raising Hasanni and his 1-year-old sister.

"Louis's parents died when he was younger, his aunt and uncle stepped in and raised him, he felt I should do the same thing," Campbell said.

"I was upset with her, how could you let them sit there, you, yourself had mentors, you, yourself had your grandmother, how would you feel if you were in foster care," Ross said.

People are shopping and they want to get their dinner ready, a lot of people are getting things done before they go home," one Rockridge resident said.

The man, who did not want to be identified, lives in an apartment near the driveway. He says that particular day; part of the street was void of parked cars.

"It was street sweep day, so half the street was shut down for no parking," he said.
If the child was kidnapped, his abductor could have done it without witnesses.

But the neighbor also says because of the limited parking, people were driving around looking for spaces.

"It was much busier than normal," he said.

There will also be a fundraiser Saturday to raise money for the reward fund.

No Scent Found At Scene Of Missing Oakland Boy
August 20, 2009
<snipped>
Police bloodhounds were unable to detect the scent of a missing 5-year-old boy outside an upscale shoe store where his foster father says he last saw him, according to a police search warrant affidavit.

Police were mystified as to how Hasanni Campbell could have vanished Aug. 10 from a "crowded business district with no witnesses," said the document, which supported a warrant to search the home of the boy's foster father, Louis Ross, in Fremont.

In a phone interview Thursday with the San Francisco Chronicle, Ross said he sent the text message in frustration at a time when he planned to break up with Campbell.

"It was me venting about a situation in our past that had come back up," he told the newspaper. "I was ending the relationship at that point."

Besides scouring the area around the shoe store, police have searched Ross' home, the surrounding neighborhoods and parks as well as a scrap yard in nearby Hayward, Calif., that Ross had visited hours before Hasanni's disappearance.

Nothing was taken from Ross' home, and he voluntarily offered his cell phone to police, court records show.

Also Thursday, Ross told television station KPIX that he failed a lie detector test but has cooperated with police "100 percent."

Oakland police would not comment on the court documents or the lie detector test.

Police spokesman Jeff Thomason says Hasanni's disappearance is still a missing person investigation, but says a homicide investigator is in charge of the case.

Editorial: Keep up the investigation until Fremont boy is found
Posted: 08/22/2009 12:01:00 AM PDT
<snipped>
DISTURBING NEW information has come to light in the disappearance of 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell.

Most shocking is an expletive-filled text message sent by the child's foster father, Louis Ross, just 10 days before Ross reported Hasanni missing from the Rockridge area on Aug. 10.

The text message, in addition to other recent developments, have only further fueled speculation about the veracity of Ross' story about Hasanni's disappearance. Ross has told police that he left Hasanni in a parking lot behind Shuz of Rockridge while he briefly went around to the front of the store with Hassani's 1-year-old sister. He said he planned to drop her off with Campbell who works at the store. When he returned, Hassani, who has cerebral palsy, was gone.

Yet police search dogs were unable to detect any scent of the boy leading away from the parking lot. Which means, either, he was never there or he was abducted in a car.

Authorities said Wednesday that Ross failed a polygraph administered by the

FBI. A police search warrant also has revealed that the day after Hassani's disappearance, police went to the Fremont home where the boy lived with Campbell and Ross in search of a sword or "cutting instrument."

Regardless of what some may speculate, we must not rush to convict Ross in the court of public opinion. It is important to note that he has not been named as a suspect by authorities.

We all need to remember this: the priority right now is finding Hasanni.

Since I'm not gifted in astrology, like SS & Tuba, I look at asteroids. There seems to be a correlation between the brain, the action and the asteroid at the time of an event. Bear with me.

Louis' chart shows "Winton" at 10 deg 20 minutes & "Cabot" at 10 deg 21 min. in CANCER conj. his Sun @ 9 deg CANCER.

Venus is transiting "Winton" and "Cabot" and is EXACTLY conjunct them both @ 10 deg 21 min. on 10th Aug. That seems too much of a coincidence considering that on this, of all days, two incidents occured. He was actually there and Hassani went missing.

I've used the "walking man" on google maps to scour W. Winton Ave. (from Cabot to and beyond the junkyard) but it abruptly ends at 2666 W. Winton. That is the "walking man" ends, but W. Winton doesn't, it continues to the left. As one moves along W. Winton there doesn't seem to be anyplace "private" enough to dump a body or dig a hole until you pass 2666. Cabot Dr.

"Cabot" is a cross street at W. Winton The distance from Roxie Terrace to Cabot & W. Winton is 11.8 miles.

From Rosie Terrace to 2666 W. Winton is 12.2 miles

This is a light industrial area, some commercial, some homes. The bay is beyond. It's NNW.

Is it a possibility?

Car wash held for missing 5-year-old
People in Oakland are trying to do what they can to help find missing Hasanni Campbell.
Saturday, August 22, 2009 | 5:49 PM
<snipped>
A special car wash was held Saturday afternoon along MacArthur Boulevard to help raise money in the search for the 5-year-old disabled boy. Organizers said they planned to donate 50 percent of the profits to Hasanni's foster parents.

"I hope today is the day that they see that this little boy has love not just from his foster family, his biological family, but from the community," one organizer told ABC7.

The boy's foster parents Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell attended the fundraiser but did not want to speak to the media. Ross has told police he last saw Hasanni outside a shoe store in Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood 12 days ago.

Foster Parents Defend Behavior
Posted: Friday, 21 August 2009 6:38AM
<snipped>
KCBS reporter Doug Sovern says his foster parents say there are innocent answers, and no reason for police to suspect them of anything.

When Ross was asked about any domestic disputes, he downplayed them, saying simply that he was "venting." He also stressed that he had been cooperating "100 percent" with police.

John Burris, an Oakland attorney who has consulted with the foster parents, said Ross is "a little overwhelmed" that he is being scrutinized by police and "is disappointed that attention is being focused on him" rather than on the search for the boy.

But Burris said Ross also realizes that it is "par for the course" and that police want to investigate everyone close to a missing child.

Fundraiser Held for Missing Boy
Saturday, 22 August 2009 2:28PM
<snipped>
Motorists took time out Saturday in Oakland to help in the efforts to find 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell.
A car wash fundraiser was held on the corner of MacArthur and Webster and was an upbeat scene, with people washing and vacuuming cars and grilling chicken and ribs.

Antonio Anabo donated his auto detailing shop for the event.

"I just want to get a lot of people out here to support the kid," Anabo said. "I feel real bad for him, and as you can see, everybody's supporting. We're just trying to bring everybody together and try to help find this little boy."

They held hands in a circle and prayed for the safe return of the disabled 5-year-old.

Teray Frederick led the prayer circle.

"This is an innocent child, a child that did not deserve to be gone from two people that love him," Frederick said.

Campbell's foster parents declined comment to the media as organizers said they are not happy with the accusatory tone of recent news reports.

Missing Fremont boy known for dancing and asking questions, mother says
Posted: 08/23/2009 05:19:24 PM PDT
Updated: 08/23/2009 05:27:25 PM PDT
<snipped>
Five-year-old Hasanni Campbell, the 40-pound Fremont boy reported missing by his foster father two weeks ago now, is known to most adults who meet him for his playful laugh and chatty company, his mother said Sunday.

"He's very talkative," Shemika Campbell said near her home in San Francisco. "He asks a lot of questions to everybody, just always so curious."

"He likes Sponge Bob and all kinds of cartoons," she added. "And he loves to dance. Not even to just one kind of music. He loves it all."

Campbell said she's not recently spoken with her sister, Jennifer Campbell, who has been Hasanni's foster mother since December 2008 and lives in Fremont with Louis Ross, who is her fiance and who reported Hasanni missing in the Rockridge District on Aug. 10.

Hasanni's 1-year-old sister also lived with the couple but was taken into protective custody after Ross reported Hasanni missing.

"I think we should really pray, and I just want to thank everybody for helping me in this search for my child," Campbell said.

Foster Father: Hasanni Not Just a Paycheck
Louis Ross talks about sword found in home, angry text message, failed polygraph
Updated 2:59 PM PDT, Fri, Aug 21, 2009
<snipped>
Loius Ross says he wants to set the record straight about questions surrounding his actions in the case of his missing son, Hassani Campbell.

Police have served multiple search warrants as part of the investigation into the disappearance of 5-year-old boy, who was last seen Aug. 10, and the boy's foster father has turned over a sword to investigators, a police spokesman and an Oakland attorney said Thursday.

However, John Burris, an Oakland attorney who has consulted with the foster parents, said one of the items Oakland police were seeking was a sword, and that Ross has turned over a sword to them.

"The sword is something I keep underneath my bed." Ross told NBC Bay Area. "The sword was initially put in the closet, to be honest. But we had some incidents, a couple of incidents where somebody was setting off our alarm while it was in our garage."

Investigators gave Ross a polygraph test but he failed it. He says the test was fraudulent.

Ross said the polygraph test was fraud.

An Alameda County Court document shows agents also recovered latex gloves from the car but Ross disputes that.

He told NBC Bay Area's Jodi Hernandez that the glove was a hand puppet that their 1-year-old daughter was playing with in the car.

"They need to check their story." Ross insists. "Was it their latex glove? Because they left all latex gloves. They destroyed parts of the house, knocked down plastic shelves and left latex gloves laying around my home."

Ross stressed his love for Hasanni, insisting the boy was not just a foster child paycheck.

"I was his father. He was my son." He said.

Hassani's room is the same as he left it. His bed his backpack and other belongings remain, awaiting his return.

Ross said he won't talk to the media anymore; he wants to keep the focus on the search for Hasanni.

Vigil For Hasanni Campbell Will Be Held Tonight
Posted: 4:42 pm PDT August 24, 2009
<snipped>
There will be a candlelight vigil in Oakland at 6:30 p.m. Monday night for Hasanni Campbell, a 5-year-old boy who disappeared two weeks ago, according to his aunt.

Trinity Schwabacher, Hasanni's aunt, said the vigil will be in the parking lot of the Shuz of Rockridge shoe store in the 6000 block of Rockridge Avenue in Oakland, which is where his foster mother, Jennifer Campbell, works.

Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason said Monday day that police are still searching for Hasanni but there aren't any new developments in their investigation.

Schwabacher said Campbell and Ross will be at the vigil and the organizers of the event will be selling T-shirts with Hasanni's picture.

She said Hasanni's family members are trying to raise money to increase the reward for information leading to Hasanni.

She said there also will be a sign-up sheet for volunteers who want to help find Hasanni.

Fundraiser nets $650 for reward fund for missing Fremont 5-year-old
Posted: 08/24/2009 05:22:53 PM PDT
<snipped>
A carwash at Tone's Auto Detail in Oakland raised $650 Saturday for the Hasanni Campbell reward fund, said Sherri Miller, who has been helping with fundraising and the search for the missing 5-year-old Fremont boy.

Police continue to treat the disappearance as a missing-persons case.

Antonio Anabo, owner of Tone's, said he wanted to do his part for the family because his "heart goes out to them. I feel really sorry for them," he said.

Meanwhile, Miller, who has been printing the missing-persons fliers from her San Leandro print shop, is helping to organize an auction to raise money for the reward fund. She said Highline Custom Jewelry in Hayward donated a $2,000 watch for the auction.

She still needs other businesses to donate items. A date for the event has not been scheduled. Those who would like to donate items should call Miller at 510-276-9090.

To keep the case in the spotlight, family and friends will be holding a vigil at 6:30 tonight and each Monday night to announce fundraisers and searches for the boy for the week, Miller said. The vigils will be held behind Shuz of Rockridge at 6012 College Ave. in Oakland. Also, Miller said a Web site — www.findhasanni.com — should be up this week.

UPDATED: Another vigil held for Hasanni Campbell
A vigil is just getting underway in Oakland tonight to focus the public's attention on Hasanni Campbell, the five year old boy who's now been missing for two weeks
Monday, August 24, 2009 | 11:57 PM
<snipped>
Police is not talking about any new leads, but we do know that police said that there were no new searches and no new search warrants filed. A vigil is took place at the rear driveway of the shoe store where Hasanni's foster dad told police the child was last seen.

This is one of those stories that has a lot of people speculating and the couple realizes many people think Louis Ross, the foster father, had something to do with it.

About 20 people showed up at Monday night's vigil for missing 5-year-old Hasanni, which is twice as many as the turnout last week.

"If we got the public out here, wouldn't that save on manpower and wouldn't the truth come out then once he's found?" said Ross.

Police said they are doing everything they can to find the boy, but Hasanni's foster parents say they realize public support is not on their side.

"You have to justify all of your actions. Everything you do you have to justify," said Ross.
Ross is dogged by the fact that he's the only one who can place Hasanni behind the Rockridge shoe store the day the boy disappeared.

Ross says it was an impassioned text message exchange, but he says it was taken out of context from the full message. Aside from that, the couple says the pressures of being under public and police scrutiny have been intense.

"On the BART, as I'm going up the escalator, on the loudspeaker, 'I hope they throw you in jail,'" said Ross.

When asked if Campbell could tell she was being monitored, she replied, "Yes. You're phone doesn't dial, like it doesn't pick up a signal as well. When you go out, there's certain cars that you keep seeing over and over again," said Campbell.

At the vigil, several volunteers signed up to help search for Hasanni. Also, organizers say a website called FindHasanni.com will be launched in two days.

Black Boy Kidnapped in Oakland: Some Questions I'd Love to Ask
Aug 20th 2009 3:50PM
Posted by Boyce Watkins, PhD
Dr. Boyce Watkins is a distinguished scholar with the Barbara Jordan Institute for Policy Research at Texas Southern University.
<snipped>
When I read about the recent kidnapping of 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell, my heart skipped a beat. The boy is as cute as a button and reminds me of the son I lost many years ago. The thought of a child's innocence being breached in any way is unbearable and leads to eternal pain for those connected. Hasanni was allegedly kidnapped in Oakland, Calif., near the back door of the store where the fiancee of his foster father works.

Oakland police are investigating the kidnapping as we speak. I admit that I don't have much respect for the Oakland Police Department after seeing the way it handled the shooting of Oscar Grant and the Beauty Salon beating that was taped and distributed on Youtube. It is my hope that the department will be able to handle this case better than it has handled other high-profile ordeals.

The kidnapping of little Hasanni left me with these piercing questions:

1) What would Nancy Grace think?
I'd hate to sound cynical, but I must confess that I wonder if Hasanni's eyes are blue enough for Nancy Grace to care that he was abducted. Although black children are three times more likely to be killed than white children, one can't help but wonder if some members of the media don't consider Hasanni's face to be as "camera ready" as Jonbenet Ramsey's (the little girl whose case took over the airwaves for years). But perhaps Nancy will prove me wrong. I certainly hope so.

2) How much do we care about black children as a nation?
Did you know that more than one child is murdered in Chicago every week? Father Michael Pfleger has flown the flag outside his church upside down for months, and Rev. Marcia Dyson has gone on a hunger strike to call attention to the alarming number of child murders in Chicago this year. The sad fact is that no one is listening, but we've got to open our ears.

3) What to make of Hasanni's foster parents?
According to several media sources, the child's foster mother refused to take a lie detector test, and his father won't discuss the results of his test with the public. Additionally, the family has retained civil rights attorney John Burris. This doesn't mean that the family is guilty, but it makes us all wonder what's going on. But of course, this is not to say that any of us know whether the parents are involved in Hasanni's disappearance.

If we don't care about our children, no one will. We must also remember that Hasanni is not the only African American child who is suffering. There are thousands of children in psychological and physical pain who don't make the media cycle. If you see child abuse of any type, please don't hesitate to call Child Protective Services. We've got to give voices to our youth.

Oakland Store Owner Calls For Help in Search for Hasanni Campbell
8/25/2009 2:06:00 PM
<snipped>
San Leandro business owner Sherri Miller says she's looking for more businesses to step forward and help raise money to increase the reward for information about Hasanni Campbell, a 5-year-old Fremont boy who disappeared more than two weeks ago.

Miller, who owns the All in One Stop store in San Leandro, said she would like to increase the reward by at least $5,000, to a total of at least $15,000.

She said she's planning to organize an auction to raise money but is waiting for more businesses to donate items.

Miller said Highline Custom Jewelry in Hayward has donated a watch worth $1,900 and Tone's Auto Detail in Oakland raised $650 at a car wash on Saturday.

She said she's printed about 2,000 missing-persons fliers at her shop and has also donated T-shirts to raise awareness about Hasanni's disappearance.

In addition, Miller said a Web site, www.findhassani.com, is expected to be up by Wednesday.

Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason said today that police are still searching for Hasanni but that there aren't any new developments in the case.

People who want to donate items for the fundraising auction may call Miller at (510) 276-9090.

One Woman's Crusade to Find Hasanni
Sherri Miller refuses to give up hope
Updated 5:30 PM PDT, Tue, Aug 25, 2009
<snipped>
A San Leandro business owner is taking matters into her own hands in the attempt to find Hasanni Campbell, the 5-year-old Fremont boy who disappeared more than two weeks ago.

And while she won't say it, she is one of the very few is not only people who are still actively keeping this missing child's case alive.

Oakland police have stopped giving interviews regarding the Hasanni disappearance, other than to say that they have no more searches planned and have followed up on the very few tips they've received.

Even Hasanni's foster father refused to talk to reporters over the weekend as he attended a car wash that was raising money to help find the little boy.

But there is Miller. Picking up her phone and talking to anyone who will listen. She also does her fair share of calling. Miller says she hopes businesses will step up and donate money to help increase the $10,000 reward. Miller says she wants to raise another $5,000.

"I'm just a one person business. We need business to step up," Miller said Tuesday.

Miller has printed about 2,000 missing-persons fliers at her shop. She's also helped get together a Web site dedicated to the child that she says will be on line by Wednesday morning. The url will be www.findhassani.com.

When asked why she's putting out all the effort, she quickly brings the conversation back to Hasanni.

She said even if people suspect the parents had something to do with his disappearance, "There's still a five year old child who needs to be found."

Soulscape saidvent MOON, describing the action, at 14 Aries is posited in the 4th House of Endings / the Grave trine the death SUN, Lord intercepted 8th. The 4th House Endings/ Grave cusp 06 Aries is partile square Hassini's secondary progressed SUN at 06 Libra. ORPHEUS, a death asteroid, is also posited in the 4th House of Endings/ the Grave at 21 Aries, partile quindecile (165 degrees) Event MIDHEAVEN. With a separation of 4 minutes of Arc, this suggests he was already dead when the alleged Last Seen took place.


This seems so right. Does the chart show he was even in the car (traveling) at that time, albeit dead or does it show death and stationary (body already dropped off) around that time? I don't believe Hassani was in the car at all at that time either. Is it possible to see a point in the charts where he and Hassani separate during travel or is there a way to determine if the travel method changed, or shortened? If Ross had the body in a garbage bag, and walked to dispose of it in an area as you previously described, would the chart show that type of travel prior to his getting in the car and then driving to the shoe store?

Gilsta,

When I examine a Last Seen chart where a specific person (here, Louis Ross) states to the effect the Last Time he saw another specific person (here, Hassini), I often assign the Observer to the 1st House*, particularly if the Observer is a parent/family member.

*There are exceptions, but in this case I assigned 1st House, Sagittarius ruled by JUPITER, to LR.

Since Hassini is LR's child, I assign Hassini to the 5th House of Children, here Taurus, ruled by VENUS.



http://i428.photobucket.com/albums/qq5/Soulscape12/Case%20Briefings/HassaniCampbellLastSeen.gif


To answer your question:

1. Lord 1 JUPITER (Louis Ross) is posited in the 2nd House of Near Future. This immediately gives me pause --- why, when he is telling what happened, is he in a 'future' position? More curious, why is he not making any aspect with VENUS (Hassini)?

2. JUPITER (Louis Ross) has just passed BLACK MOON LILITH, a most malefic influence, and is involved in conjunction with CHIRON (damage) and NEPTUNE (deceit/disappearance). Does this show he has been 'damaged' by loss (NEPTUNE) or does it indicate he is fabricating (NEPTUNE) an evil (BML) story (CHIRON)? With no aspects to VENUS (Hassini), Part of Children or Part of Sons, I wonder...

3. JUPITER (Louis Ross) maintains the 22nd 'kill or be killed' degree. While we can't nail him on that, it is certainly unfortunate.

4. JUPITER (Louis Ross) is intercepted. Interceptions speak of secrets, things hidden, interferences. Louis Ross is hiding information/ keeping secrets.

5. Look at the 3rd House of Information, Facts & Rumors. We see Pisces, a most deceptive sign in horary astrology, on the 3rd House Cusp with its modern ruler NEPTUNE poised to enter & in conjunction with JUPITER --- both the traditional ruler of Pisces and in this chart, Louis Ross.

To repeat what I have already said about this chart in earlier posts -- including how severely this chart afflicts Hassini's Sunrise natal and secondary progressed charts -- the astrology strongly indicates Louis Ross is lying. I highly doubt Hassini was in that car on August 10, 2009 at 4:15 pm, as alleged.

VENUS (Hassini) separates semisquare from ADMETOS (a death indicator) partile conjunct ALGOL, the most malefic Fixed Star in the Heavens by 22 minutes of Arc (less than 1 degree). This suggests something happened to Hassini not too far before the alleged Last Seen time. (However, keep in mind we can't take '22 minutes' literally.)

Thanks,

Soulscape, would the retrograde planets come into play e.g. revisit, Ross revisiting the site? His deception and continual need to "feed" that deception is almost controlling the situation. His deception, i.e. Hassani being in the car to the shoe store etc , keeps the focus in the wrong area and maybe he can do that because he can walk to the body's location.. Could it be he fears that the body is no longer covered because of weather or the lack of time he had to dispose of it when he committed the killing and because it's close by Ross will revisit a location he can walk to, like a drainage run-off or something like you said? It is as if his words have people under an illusion. It seems like they don't hear what I hear and I don't get it, maybe it's my own neptune.

OAKLAND, CA (KGO) -- Oakland Police say they have no new tips in the disappearance of 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell.

Police haven't revealed if searches of several locations have turned up any leads.

That includes a search of Hasanni's foster parents' home in Fremont.
Hasanni's family plans to keep holding vigils for him every Monday in Rockridge until he is found.

A $10,000 reward is being offered in the case.

Oakland police said Friday night that they believe Hasanni Campbell is dead, and that his foster parents, Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell, were responsible.

Ross and Campbell were arrested Friday afternoon on suspicion of murder, according to Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan.

"Right now, in this investigation, it's not a missing persons case anymore," police spokesperson Jeff Thomason said. "It is a homicide investigation."

Louis did not react as he was taken into custody, according to Chief Jordan, who said that the foster father seemed to be awaiting arrest.

"We believe Hasanni Campbell is no longer alive and we have the people responsible," Thomason said.

Thomason said investigators have not located Hasanni's body and declined to comment on specific evidence in the case that led to Friday's arrests.

"This investigation is still ongoing and very complex," Thomason said.

He said Ross and Jennifer Campbell were being interviewed by detectives this evening.

KTVU has learned that Ross has waived his right to remain silent, and has been talking to police.

The investigating officers also told the court that Ross had “also voiced some misgivings about caring for a developmentally disabled child” and added that neighbors had not seen Hasanni for about two weeks.

The couple said they volunteered to give DNA samples to police who visited the house Thursday morning so that they could be ruled out as suspects.

Foster parents arrested in boy's killing
August 28, 2009
<snipped>

(08-28) 18:08 PDT Fremont -- The foster parents of a missing 5-year-old boy with cerebral palsy were arrested today at their Fremont home on suspicion of homicide and police were conducting a search of their property, authorities said.

Louis Ross, 38, is being held on suspicion of murder and Jennifer Campbell, 33, was being held on charges related to homicide, Oakland police said. The body of the child, Hasanni Campbell, has not been found.

Oakland police investigators were questioning the couple and searching their Fremont home Friday evening.

Police blocked off the development, called Hampton Place, where the couple lived as they removed potential evidence from their property.

John Burris, an attorney who has been consulting with the couple, confirmed the arrests.

Burris said he was told of the couple's arrest this afternoon. "I'm not aware of what evidence, if any, that police have that supports the detainment or the arrest," Burris said. "I know that they have been questioned extensively by the police over the last several days."

Investigators had long focused their attention on the foster parents, scouring their Fremont home with dogs two days after Hasanni vanished and questioning Ross and Campbell, who is Hasanni's aunt and Ross' fiancee. Ross also was given a polygraph examination; Campbell, who is more than six months pregnant, declined to take one, saying she feared it might harm her fetus.

Police had said the dogs were unable to detect Hasanni's scent outside the shoe store where Ross said he last saw the boy. Hasanni wears arch-support braces because of his cerebral palsy, but he can walk on his own, Ross said.

Neighbors of the family's home in Hampton Place, a tidy community of two story stucco homes with wide streets and rose bushes, were shocked to see police cars and news helicopters descend on a neighborhood they regard as free of crime.

"It's surprising for this neighborhood. There's not much crime here. We have had some break-ins, but nothing really serious," said one neighbor, Anton Ko. "It makes you feel afraid."

Entrances to the neighborhood were blocked by police, who were allowing only residents to enter.

"We're all talking about it, me and my friends, on Facebook," said one 15-year-old neighbor, Arvind Mahesh, who said he heard the helicopters arrive at about 3 p.m. and rode his bicycle to watch the police search the home that Ross and Campbell share on Roxie Terrace.

Neighbors who had been following the story said they were dismayed at the latest twist in the case.

"All along, we heard the foster parents were upset about being interviewed, and asked a lot of questions. Now today, we found out they got arrested," said Alok Verma, who lives about a block and a half away from the family's home. "It's shocking."

Thank you Angel for the news. I am relieved to know they have been arrested. I admit, personally, I was surprised to know the foster mother was involved as well.
Once again our amazing Astro-Sleuths were right, I only hope they find his little body and bring him home, once and for all, so he can find peace.

RIP darling Hasanni... you will never be forgotten

Recall from the 'Detectives Question Ross' chart in my post #55 on page 3 of this Thread:



Remember on 8/14/09 when Detectives pulled up to Ross's door & took him away for questioning? The chart cast for that Event shows SUN at 22 Leo --- the 'kill or be killed' degree as well as the sign & degree of being one's own worst enemy --- partile opposed JUPITER Lord 5 the Child (Hasanni). This is a solid homicide testimony...
Perhaps it was his own testimony on that day of questioning that supplied LE with the ammunition they needed to rope him in.

d'arrest had transited PAST 23 Virgo 2 days ago. What? Of course! When it conjuncts his Pluto at 27 degrees. AND, it did. Today.

The foster parents of a missing 5-year-old disabled boy have been arrested on suspicion of murder, police said Friday.

After being questioned by detectives late into the night, Louis Ross was booked into the Santa Rita Jail early Saturday on a homicide charge and was being held without bond. Jennifer Campbell was jailed on an accessory charge and was being held on $15,000 bond, according to jail records.

Police indicated that they believe young Hasanni Campbell is dead, although as of Saturday no body had been recovered.

"Right now, in this investigation, it's not a missing persons case anymore, it is a homicide investigation,'' Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason said. "We believe Hasanni Campbell is no longer alive and we have the people responsible."

The couple were arrested separately within an hour of each other. Campbell was arrested about 1:50 p.m. Friday at the Union City BART station, police said. At 2:45 p.m., Ross was arrested at the couple's Fremont home.

Thomason said the couple were questioned extensively by investigators after being taken into custody. Police officers also conducted a search of the couple's home on Friday evening.

Investigators declined to comment on any specific evidence in the case that led to the arrests of the foster parents.

"This investigation is still ongoing and very complex,'' Thomason said.

The couple, who are engaged, were scheduled to be arraigned in court on Monday.

The pair took custody of Hasanni and his 1-year-old sister several months ago because their mother — Jennifer Campbell's sister — had drug problems.

There's even a Web site — findhasanni.com — where his foster family tries to explain their role.

"We understand that there is a lot of speculation out there due to misconceptions about our family and the environment Hasanni was living in but to us he is a son, a brother, a family member and so much more and not just a foster child," a message from the site reads.

But, with police receiving a lack of strong tips and bloodhounds unable to detect the scent of where Hasanni allegedly disappeared, many wondered if his family had anything to do with it. Both Ross and police had said his family was cooperating with authorities, although Ross felt police believed he and Campbell, who is six months pregnant, did something wrong.

They both have denied any involvement with his disappearance.

During a second vigil for Hasanni outside the shoe store on Monday, the soft-spoken Ross told The Associated Press that "in the court of public opinion I've been charged, tried and convicted," regarding the boy's disappearance.

Prominent Bay Area civil rights attorney John Burris, who has been advising the couple shortly after Hasanni's disappearance, said Friday that he was surprised by the couple's arrest.

"I'm not aware of any hard physical evidence that ties either one into a missing child," said Burris, adding that authorities have 72 hours to file charges.

"This is a not a missing persons case any more," Officer Jeff Thomason, Oakland police spokesman, said Friday evening.

"This is a homicide investigation, and we are talking to the people responsible."Campbell was arrested at 1:50 p.m. at the Union City BART station. Ross was arrested in the couple's Fremont home at 2:45 p.m. Hasanni's body has not been found, Thomason said.

Campbell was booked Friday night on suspicion of being an accessory to murder. Police were still interviewing Ross late Friday night and said they would be booking him on suspicion of murder.

Homicide investigator Sgt. Gus Galindo said police decided to arrest the couple "because our preliminary and follow-up investigations have shown Hasanni Campbell was never in the rear of the Rockridge shoe store as reported by Louis Ross."

Police plan to release additional details that they hope will draw more information from the public. The last confirmed sighting of Hasanni was Aug. 6 at a Wal-Mart in Fremont, where he was seen with both foster parents.

Ross, who used to live in Maryland, had a restraining order filed against him there in 2005. He also has had a number of judgments for unpaid state taxes there, including a number of income tax liens totaling thousands of dollars. As she has done since Hasanni's disappearance, Campbell's mother, Pam Clark, continued to defend her daughter and Ross after hearing of the arrests Friday evening.

"It's shocking. I think they made a mistake and arrested the wrong person," Clark said. " just feel like they don't have anything to do with it." Clark said the arrests did not dim her hopes of seeing her grandson again.

"This is not going to stop me from looking for Hasanni, because he still needs to be found. I have hopes he will come back alive," Clark said. "I just feel he's alive somewhere. I'm still looking." Police have scoured the area around the shoe store in the busy Rockridge shopping district but have turned up no clues. Police earlier served a search warrant at the Fremont home where Hasanni and his younger sister lived with Ross and Campbell, retrieving a small, decorative sword, a cell phone and other items.

Police also searched the 2002 BMW that Ross was driving the day Hasanni disappeared, taking swabs, the rear seat of the vehicle, carpet from the car, two car seats, molding and latches, according to a receipt of property from the FBI. An Alameda County Superior Court document also shows that four fingerprint lifts, eight DNA swabs and one pair of latex gloves were taken from the car.

Oakland police officers again searched the couple's home Friday, starting about 2:30 p.m. and continuing into the night. Officers could be seen searching a bedroom above the garage, going through clothes and papers, and flipping the mattress. Between 7:30 and 7:45 p.m., police officers removed a gray computer CPU tower and screen from the house. Two dogs, one large and tan-colored and the other black and white, were removed from the home and loaded into Fremont city vehicles.

Around 8:30 p.m., officers left the house with two grocery-sized paper evidence bags as they prepared to wrap up the search. Fremont police provided security during the search and restricted traffic to and from the subdivision for several hours.

Residents said they were shocked at the news of the arrests Friday. "I can't believe it," said Jim Pham, who has lived on a street adjacent to the couple's home in the Hampton Place subdivision.

Pham said the FBI came to his house in the days after the boy's disappearance and asked general questions about the couple, but Pham had never seen them. Other residents echoed his sentiments and added they were concerned about the negative publicity being brought to the quaint neighborhood.

More than a half-dozen neighbors interviewed in recent weeks described Ross and Campbell as a quiet couple rarely was seen outside their home. A woman who lives next door said she never seen Hasanni, and another woman who lives across the street said she only saw him once earlier this year. Although several of the neighborhood children play in the streets, Hasanni was never among them, they said.

Juan Bonuel, who lives in a home across the street from the couple's corner lot, had contact with Hasanni several times but never had spoken to Ross or Campbell. Bonuel said that every day during the school year he would see Hasanni on the school bus that takes kids to James Leitch Elementary School in Fremont's Warm Springs District. "He's a good-looking kid, adorable," Bonuel said recently, noting Hasanni always would say, "Hi." Bonuel said he had not seen Hasanni since summer vacation began in mid-June.

Hasanni's foster parents arrested for murder
Friday, August 28, 2009 | 5:29 PM
<snipped>
On Friday, Oakland Police said they are now convinced that 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell was killed and they accused his foster parents of the crime. Both are in jail.

"We do believe Hasanni Campbell has been murdered," says Oakland Police Officer Jeff Thomason.

Oakland police have yet to find the body of Hasanni, but they insist his foster parents killed him.

Louis Ross and fiancé Jennifer Campbell, Hasanni's aunt, were arrested this afternoon on suspicion of murder. The two were taken separately to the Oakland Police Department late Friday afternoon.

"Right now we have investigators talking to both parties. I want to clarify that this is not a missing persons case anymore. This is a homicide investigation and we are talking to the people responsible," says Officer Thomason.

Police aren't saying what led to the arrests, but investigators have been at the couple's Fremont home all afternoon searching for evidence. Still, Hasanni's birth mother and extended family stand behind Ross and Campbell.

"I'm outraged at the fact that they would arrest my sister and brother in law for something they didn't do," says Shemika Campbell, Hasanni's biological mother.

"I am very surprised that they got arrested because they didn't do anything wrong. They love those kids like there were, you know, their own," says Trinity Schwabacher, Hasanni's aunt.

Then, investigators discovered a text message on Ross's cell phone where he threatened to abandon Hassani at a BART station. Through it all, the couple maintained their innocence. Attorney John Burris has been offering them legal advice and he believes the arrest is nothing more than tactic to get the couple to talk.

"It would not surprise me in any way that police would seek to divide and conquer, by arresting, to see if one or more of the persons have something to say that they have not already said," says Burris.

Oakland police said Friday night that they believe Hasanni Campbell is dead, and that his foster parents, Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell, are responsible.

Ross and Campbell were arrested Friday afternoon on suspicion of murder, according to Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan.

"This investigation [is] not a missing persons case anymore," police spokesperson Jeff Thomason said. "It is a homicide investigation."

Jennifer Campbell, Hasanni's aunt and foster mother, was arrested on suspicion of murder at about 1:50 p.m. at the Union City BART station, Thomason said. At about 2:45 p.m., Louis Ross was arrested on the same charge at his Fremont home. Warrants for their arrest remain sealed.

Louis did not react as he was taken into custody, according to Chief Jordan, who said that the foster father seemed to be awaiting arrest.

"We believe Hasanni Campbell is no longer alive and we have the people responsible," Thomason said.

He said Ross and Jennifer Campbell were being interviewed by detectives Friday evening.

A law enforcement source told KTVU that a compelling piece of evidence is that no one ever saw the little boy in the busy Rockridge neighborhood where his foster father reported him missing 18 days ago.

The source also says that the fact that very few tips have come in point to the couple as being the only ones who really know what happened to their foster son.

KTVU has learned that Ross has waived his right to remain silent, and has been talking to police.

“It would not surprise me in any way that the police is seeking to divide and conquer by arresting and seeing if they have something to say that they haven't already said,” said the couple’s legal advisor John Burris.

Burris told KTVU that the district attorney has until next Tuesday to decide whether to bring charges against Louis Ross and Jennifer Cambpell.

UPDATED: Foster parents arrested in boy's killing
August 29, 2009
<snipped>
(08-28) 18:08 PDT Fremont -- The foster parents who tearfully pleaded for the public's help in finding their missing 5-year-old boy with cerebral palsy were arrested Friday on suspicion of killing the boy, authorities said.

Louis Ross, 38, and his fiancee, Jennifer Campbell, 33, the boy's aunt, were taken into custody on suspicion of murder, said Officer Jeff Thomason, an Oakland police spokesman.

Oakland homicide investigators were questioning the couple Friday night and conducted a search of the couple's Fremont home in Hampton Place, a tidy community of two-story stucco homes with wide streets and rose bushes.

Campbell was arrested at the Union City BART Station shortly before 2 p.m. after being questioned earlier by police, Thomason said. Ross was arrested at the Fremont home about an hour later.

"This is not a missing persons case anymore, this is a homicide investigation," Thomason said. "And we are talking to the people responsible." The officer said the investigation was "very complex."

John Burris, an attorney who has been consulting with the couple, said he was told of the couple's arrest on Friday afternoon.

"I'm not aware of what evidence, if any, that police have that supports the detainment or the arrest," Burris said. "I know that they have been questioned extensively by the police over the last several days."

Absent a body, Burris said the arrests were probably a police tactic designed to pressure the couple to talk and turn on each other.

"That's how police work," Burris said. "Divide and conquer."

Prosecutors will have 48 hours from the arrests, not including the weekend, to decide on charging the couple.

Friday afternoon, yellow crime scene tape blocked the street about a half block from the family's home, and Oakland police officers were seen going in and out of the backyard while Fremont police stood guard. A light could be seen on in the second story window, but it did not appear that anybody was at home. The search of the home wound down about 7 p.m.

Neighbors were shocked to see police cars and news helicopters descend on Hampton Place, a neighborhood they regard as free of crime.

Entrances to the neighborhood were temporarily blocked by police, who were allowing only residents to enter.

"All along, we heard the foster parents were upset about being interviewed, and asked a lot of questions. Now today, we found out they got arrested," said Alok Verma, who lives about a block and a half away from the family's home. "It's shocking."

Police gather outside the home of missing 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell in Fremont where Oakland police were investigating.

UPDATED: Foster Parents Arrested, Hasanni Campbell Believed to be Dead
8/28/2009 4:06:00 PM
<snipped>
The foster parents of Hasanni Campbell, a 5-year-old boy with cerebral palsy who was last seen Aug. 10, were arrested on suspicion of murder Friday, Oakland police Officer Jeff Thomason said.

"Right now, in this investigation, it's not a missing persons case anymore," Thomason said. "It is a homicide investigation."

Jennifer Campbell, Hasanni's aunt and foster mother, was arrested on suspicion of murder at about 1:50 p.m. at the Union City BART station, Thomason said. At about 2:45 p.m., Louis Ross was arrested on the same charge at his Fremont home.

"We believe Hasanni Campbell is no longer alive and we have the people responsible," Thomason said.

Thomason said investigators have not located Hasanni's body and declined to comment on specific evidence in the case that led to today's arrests.

"This investigation is still ongoing and very complex," Thomason said.

He said Ross and Jennifer Campbell were being interviewed by detectives Friday evening.

Campbell’s Foster Parents Arrested: Murder Suspected in Missing Child Case
August 28, 2009 – 9:59 pm
<snipped>
Louis Ross and his fiancée Jennifer Campbell—the boy’s aunt—were taken into custody in separate arrests today, Thomason said.
“I want to clarify, this is not a missing persons case,” Thomason said at an 8 p.m. press conference held at the Oakland Police Department headquarters. “We believe Hassani Campbell has been murdered.”

Thomason would not comment on any evidence uncovered in the investigation nor on the nature of the arrests, but said police have yet to recover Hassani’s body. Campbell was arrested at 1:45 p.m. Friday at the Union City BART station and Ross was arrested at his Fremont home at 2:45 p.m., Thomason said.

High profile Oakland attorney John Burris, who has been working with Hassani’s foster parents as an advisor, said the two underwent questioning today and that the arrests were unexpected. “I’m quite surprised as to why they were arrested today,” Burris said at a press conference that took place before Thomason’s statements.

Burris said he has not been hired as an attorney but that he will be assisting the couple. He has previously represented celebrities including Barry Bonds and Tupac Shakur, and in 2003 won a $10.9 million class action settlement against the Oakland Police Department in the “Riders” case, which accused officers of planting evidence and using excessive force. Earlier this year Burris filed a $25 million wrongful death suit over the January shooting of Oscar Grant by a BART police officer.

Hasanni's foster parents could be released
Saturday, August 29, 2009
<snipped>
The foster parents of missing 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell could be released from jail by Tuesday if formal complaints are not filed by then.

Louis Ross and his fiancée Jennifer Campbell were taken into custody Friday on suspicion of murder. That means police have 48 hours from the time of the arrests, not including the weekend, to file formal charges.

Police say they are now looking for Hasanni Campbell's body and they are investigating the case as a homicide.

Investigators would not say what led to the couple's arrest or why they now believe the 5-year-old is dead.

Search for Hasanni not over yet, volunteer says
Posted: 08/29/2009 05:49:56 PM PDT
Updated: 08/30/2009 07:36:40 AM PDT
<snipped>
Those who had been aiding Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell since their 5-year-old foster son, Hasanni Campbell, vanished earlier this month expressed sadness Saturday, a day after the couple was arrested in connection with what investigators now call a homicide.

Oakland police released no new information Saturday, after arresting Campbell, 30, on Friday afternoon at the Union City BART station and Ross, 38, later Friday at the couple's Fremont home. Campbell was booked Friday night on suspicion of being an accessory to murder. Police were still interviewing Ross late Friday night and said they would be booking him on suspicion of murder.

Prosecutors must decide by Tuesday afternoon whether to charge the couple or release them pending further investigation.

Oakland attorney John Burris, who has been advising Ross and Campbell in recent weeks, said Saturday it was unlikely he would formally represent them; he mainly does civil-rights cases, not criminal defense, and he's not sure who'll end up taking the case. Still, he said, he tried to meet with them Saturday morning but was unsuccessful because they were in transit, perhaps for additional police interviews.

"I just want to let them know what's ahead for them... what the process looks like in front of them. No more than that," he said.

Burris said it appears investigators' probable cause for arresting Ross and Campbell was because Hasanni was never in the vicinity of the Rockridge shoe store where his foster parents claimed they last saw him Aug. 10; police say the boy actually was last seen Aug. 6 with his foster parents near a Walmart store in Fremont.

"It means to me that this is more of an effort, seemingly, to build a circumstantial-evidence-type case and eventually get one or more of them to turn state's evidence if they have any evidence, and I don't know that they do," Burris said. "I'm not surprised at that strategy."

Sherri-Lyn Miller, who has used her San Leandro shop, All in One Stop, to print up T-shirts with Hasanni's image to publicize the case and raise funds for the search, said the foster parents' arrests won't slow her volunteer effort to locate the boy.

"There's still a 5-year-old child that's missing. I'm putting a search team together and leaving my store at 8 a.m. tomorrow morning," she said. about 15 to 20 volunteers will caravan to the Monterey area, where Ross has lived in the past. "As far as trying to find him, nothing has changed. We just have two less people to look for him, and now that they're in custody the public has no more excuse for not helping to look for this child."

Volunteers Continue Search Despite Foster Parents' Arrest
Posted: 3:25 pm PDT August 28, 2009
Updated: 8:06 pm PDT August 29, 2009
<snipped>
Volunteers who have been searching for Hasanni Campbell for weeks said they are undaunted by Oakland police department’s statement that they believe Hasanni is dead, and that his foster parents, Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell, are responsible.

On Friday night, police spokesperson Jeff Thomason said, "This investigation [is] not a missing persons case anymore. It is a homicide investigation."

Oakland police have not said what led to the arrest of the foster parents or why investigators believe the child is dead, though they have indicated they may reveal more information in this case on Sunday.

Still, volunteers on Saturday said their efforts are still concentrated on finding the missing boy.

Sherri Miller has been leading a small volunteer search effort for Hasanni since he was reported missing 19 days ago.

“Regardless of the arrests, regardless of anything else, he needs to be found,” said Miller. She added that she felt that the story’s improbability has kept many who might have aided in his search away.

“I think the story was very difficult for people to buy into. It made it very difficult for some people to feel some type of connection.”

Ande Pena is among the volunteers who plan to hand out t-shirts and flyers and search this weekend as far away as Monterey.

“I was saddened because it leads [people] to believe that he's not going to be found alive,” said Pena.

While they said they feel the arrest of Hasanni’s foster parents is irrelevant, both hope it leads both clues to the child’s whereabouts and a renewed effort to the search effort that has so far drawn few volunteers.

“[In similar cases], you've seen communities organize and volunteers be turned away because so many people have come together,” said Pena. “You didn't see that in this case.

Volunteers say they will continue with plans for a vigil Monday evening for Hasanni at the Shuz of Rockridge shoe store in the 6000 block of College Avenue in Oakland where he was allegedly last seen.

Crime story II:

Oakland police decided early last week to arrest the foster parents of missing Hasanni Campbell - the only question was when to pull the trigger.

The first hint of a turn in the case came Wednesday when Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason suddenly stopped talking with reporters.

Up until then, the department had been handling Hasanni's disappearance as a missing-persons case and holding regular briefings.

And while Hasanni's foster father, Louis Ross, called police every day, little of what he told them about Hasanni's disappearance checked out, sources said.

"We never came up with one piece of proof that the child was ever in Rockridge that day," one police source said, referring to the neighborhood where the father claims the 5-year-old went missing.

And as time wore on, so did the feeling among investigators that they had to make a move in the very high-profile case.

"There are no new leads and still no body, but we felt it was time to bring them in, separate them and sweat them," said one police source.

Murder case to be built even though boy missing
August 30, 2009
<snipped>
When a Fremont man and his fiancee are called to court this week in connection with the apparent slaying of their disabled 5-year-old foster son, prosecutors will be moving forward even though his body hasn't been found.

Louis Ross, 38, and his fiancee, Jennifer Campbell, 33, who have not been charged in the case, are the latest in a string of East Bay homicide suspects against whom police have built a case without a body.

Ross is being held without bail at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin on suspicion of murdering Hasanni Campbell, while Jennifer Campbell is being held in lieu of $15,000 bail on suspicion of being an accessory in the case.

Circumstantial evidence helped convict Hans Reiser of first-degree murder in the 2006 slaying of his estranged wife, Nina, in the Oakland hills. His sentence was later reduced for leading police to her body.

Eric Mora, 53, was charged with murdering Cynthia Alonzo, 48, who failed to show up at a Thanksgiving dinner with her family in San Francisco in 2004. He remains in jail.

Hasanni's case presents its own unique challenges.

Adult victims who go missing presumably leave a trail. Prosecutors often tell juries that the evidence points to death when an adult fails to show up to work, visits friends, or use a credit card.

In Hasanni's case, prosecutors plan to prove the boy was murdered in part because no one has seen him since he disappeared Aug. 10, and Ross allegedly sent an expletive-laden text message to Campbell threatening to leave the boy alone on a BART platform.

Hassani Campbell is Missing: Foster Parents Arrested for Suspicion of Murder
Fiance of Aunt Sent Angry Text Message Threatening to Abandon 5-year-old Just Days Before Disappearance
August 29, 2009
<snipped>
The foster parents of Hassani Campbell have been arrested in connection with his homicide. Not just his disappearance, but his death. Oakland Police announced Friday, according to the Associated Press, that Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell, the aunt of the 5-year-old boy, were charged with suspicion of murder. A spokesperson for the Oakland Police announced that the couple had been brought in for questioning. Hassani Campbell has been missing since August 10 and Louis Ross has appeared on talk shows like Nancy Grace to talk about the boy's disappearance. Jennifer Campbell, who is pregnant, has been relatively silent about her missing nephew, but both had pleaded for the safe return of the young boy.

"This is not a missing persons case anymore. This is a homicide investigation," Jeff Thomason, spokesman for the Oakland Police Department, said Friday. "We are talking to the people responsible. We do believe Hasanni Campbell is dead."

Hassani Campbell went missing when Louis Ross supposedly left the boy beside his car outside the back door of the shoe store where Jennifer Campbell worked. Ross said that it was routine on the days he had classes (Ross is a medical assistant student): He would leave Hassani, walk around to the front of the store carrying Hassani's little sister, then signal his fiancee that they were there so she could open the back door for Hassani. The routine, he said, was adopted to make it easier for Hassani Campbell, who had small ankle braces and found walking distances to be difficult.

According to Louis Ross, on this particular day, everything was going as planned, but then Hassani disappeared before he got back to the parking lot, Jennifer Campbell having already ascertained that her nephew was missing. Hassani, who has cerebral palsy, sometimes would hide, Ross said, so they spent a few minutes looking for the boy. When they failed to find him, they called the police.

And Hassani Campbell hasn't been seen since...

Jeff Thomason said that Hassani Campbell's body had not been found and would not elaborate on why police believe that the boy is dead.

The house (Edited media typo from apartment to house!) the couple shared was searched Friday as well. In the search warrant affidavit, Louis Ross threatened in a text message to his fiancee to leave the small boy at a train station platform unattended. Ross explained to the San Francisco Chronicle that he had sent the message in a moment of anger, when he was thinking of breaking up with Jennifer Campbell.

Ross' and Campbell's attorney said he was surprised by the arrest, as were many of their friends and supporters.

But Ross and Campbell aren't the only caretakers being questioned about the disappearance of someone in their charge. Back in June, 2-year-old Jada Justice was reported missing from a vehicle parked at a convenience store in Gary, Indiana. Engelica Castillo, Jada Justice's cousin and babysitter, claimed that the child had been left in the car while she went inside but was gone upon her return. But no one at the crowded convenient store saw a child, nor did they see anyone approach the vehicle in question. Fox News reported that a few days later, the body of little Jada Justice was found. Engelica Castillo, 18, and her boyfriend, Tim Tkachick, 24, were arrested a few days later and charged with Jada Justice's murder, neglect of a dependent, battery and false informing.

But being under suspicion or arrested for murder does not necessarily mean that those arrested or suspected are actually guilty of said crime or crimes. Polygraph results, although used as leverage in investigations, are inadmissible as evidence in legal cases.

Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell are maintaining their innocence with regard to the disappearance of Hassani Campbell. They have a website set up in the effort to find him: FindHassani.com. There is a reward of more than $10,000 for information as to the whereabouts of the missing boy.

Neighbors Nonplussed By Arrests
Posted: Sunday, 30 August 2009 2:35PM
<snipped>
Prosecutors in Alameda County Sunday worked to build a case against a Fremont couple suspected in the death of their missing foster child.

While investigators combed the Fremont home where Louis Ross and his fiance, Jennifer Campbell, live, those who work and live nearby told KCBS they weren't at all surprised when the couple was arrested Friday on suspicion of murdering the child.

Maja Ruznic works next door to the shoe store and was in the driveway with the couple moments after they said Hasanni vanished. She said their story never made any sense to her.

"From the very beginning I had a feeling that the kid was not in the car," said Ruznic.

The county prosecutor in charge of North Oakland was out investigating around the Rockridge shoe store driveway where Louis Ross says his 5-year-old foster son Hasanni Campbell disappeared three weeks ago. The DA has until the end of the day Tuesday to file charges against Ross, who was arrested Friday on suspicion of murdering the boy. Jennifer Campbell was arrested on suspicion of being an accessory.

So far, police have not found any evidence that the boy was in the car, nor have they found his body. If they can't get one of the couple to confess, or develop enough other hard evidence by Tuesday, they would have to release Ross and Campbell while the investigation goes on.

The foster parents of missing five-year-old Hasanni Campbell are maintaining their innocence after their arrest on Friday on charges of murder, according to an attorney who visited the two in jail on Sunday.

Louis Ross was arrested on suspicion of homicide on Friday. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday.

Jennifer Campbell was arrested on suspicion of aiding and abetting a felony. She is scheduled to be arraigned Monday.

“We have not located his body and we do need people who know where he is,” said police spokesman Jeff Thomason, “And we don't believe he is alive.”

Oakland attorney John Burris visited Campbell and Ross Sunday, in attempt to assist them in locating a criminal defense attorney.

Oakland police have not said what led to the arrest of the foster parents or why investigators believe the child is dead, though they have indicated they may reveal more information in this case on Monday.

Volunteers say they will continue with plans for a vigil Monday evening for Hasanni at the Shuz of Rockridge shoe store in the 6000 block of College Avenue in Oakland where he was allegedly last seen.

The foster mother of Hasanni Campbell, the 5-year-old disabled Fremont boy who is now considered a homicide victim by Oakland police, will not be charged with a crime today, prosecutors said.

Jennifer Campbell, who is six months pregnant, and her fiance, Louis Ross, were arrested Friday in what investigators are saying is a homicide case. Ross reported the boy missing Aug. 10.

Alameda County Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers said no charges will be filed against Jennifer Campbell. It is expected Campbell will be released from Santa Rita Jail this afternoon.

"There is insufficient evidence at this time, and the investigation is continuing," Rogers said.

Campbell refused to talk to police about the case at all after the arrest, investigators said.

Ross is due in court Tuesday, and prosecutors still are reviewing the case.

Police have said the last confirmed sighting of the boy was Aug. 6, when he was seen with his foster parents at a Wal-Mart store in Fremont.

Will Foster Parents Be Charged With Murder?
August 31, 2009

We should find out soon whether the foster parents of little Hasanni Campbell will be charged with murdering him. Oakland police held Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell, who is also Hasanni's aunt, in custody over the weekend on suspicion that the Fremont couple killed the 5-year-old and then told a bogus story that he went missing in Oakland's Rockridge district. It's not clear what evidence police have against the couple, and if prosecutors do charge them this week with murder, it could be a tough case to prove without a body -- although they were able to do it in the Hans Reiser case a few years ago.

The foster mother of missing five-year-old Hasanni Campbell was released from custody Monday after authorities determined they did not have enough evidence to charge her in his disappearance and apparent death.

Jennifer Campbell, 33, and her boyfriend, Louis Ross, 38, were both arrested Friday after Oakland investigators ruled the boy’s disappearance was a homicide.

But hours before her first schedule court appearance, Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers said there was “insufficient evidence” to charge her at this time. However, Ross remained in custody on suspicion of homicide charges.

UPDATED: No charges against Hasanni's foster mother
August 31, 2009
<snipped>
(08-31) 13:01 PDT OAKLAND --The boy's foster father remains in custody on suspicion of murder.

"We are not charging her; there is insufficient evidence at this time," Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers said.
John Burris, an attorney who has been consulting with the couple, said of Campbell today, "I'm not surprised that the D.A. chose not to file charges. There was never evidence connecting her to a crime.

"At best, it was just her association with Louis, but that was not in any way reflective of criminal behavior or knowledge on her part," Burris said. "I totally thought it was a wrong-headed approach by the Police Department. I'm glad that the D.A. and cooler heads prevailed."

As for Ross, Burris said police probably arrested him simply because they didn't believe his story that Hasanni had been outside the shoe store.

"From there, they inferred that if he's lying about that, then he must know something about it," Burris said. "But there's no real evidence. There's no independent evidence of any kind, no corroborative evidence and no admissions by him. In that sense, it's pretty weak."

"She was quite emotionally distraught," Burris said. "She was in a state of disbelief and shock and reiterated that she had not done anything wrong and answered all their questions. She cannot believe she was treated in such a way by the police."

Burris said Ross was similarly emotional and "very much concerned" about his fiancee's well-being.

Burris said he had referred Ross to a criminal defense attorney but declined to identify that lawyer, pending an expected meeting between the two Tuesday.

UPDATED: Hasanni Campbell's Foster Mom Won't Face Charges
Aug 31, 2009 1:41 pm US/Pacific
<snipped>
KCBS Radio has learned that the foster mother of a missing 5-year-old boy won't be charged in connection with the boy's disappearance.

Jennifer Campbell, who is also the child's aunt, was arrested Friday along with the boy's foster father, Louis Ross.

Ross and Campbell were being questioned by investigators in the murder of 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell, who has cerebral palsy, Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason said.

Ross and Campbell were arrested separately within an hour of each other, Thomason added. He said police have not recovered the boy's body.

Monday morning, KCBS learned that Campbell was scheduled to be released from jail some point during the day, without any charges being filed against her. Campbell was scheduled for arraignment Monday afternoon on aiding and abetting charges.

UPDATED: Hasanni Campbell's aunt to be released
Monday, August 31, 2009 | 11:44 AM
<snipped>
The aunt of missing Hasanni Campbell will be released from jail today and no charges will be filed against her, prosecutors said.

Alameda County Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers said there was "insufficient evidence" to charge Jennifer Campbell in the case.

Her fiance, Louis Ross, remains in custody and is being held on suspicion of murder. Prosecutors have until tomorrow to file charges against him.

The pair was arrested on Friday.

Hasanni, who has cerebral palsy, disappeared three weeks ago today. Police say even though they have not found his body, they consider this a homicide investigation and not a missing person's case. Police say they are now looking for the five-year-old boy's body.

Foster Mother of Missing 5-Year-Old to be Released From Police Custody
8/31/2009 10:20:00 AM
<snipped>
Officials say the foster mother of missing 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell is being released from police custody.

According to Alameda County Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers, there is insufficient evidence to charge 30-year-old Jennifer Campbell as an accessory in Hasanni’s murder.

On Friday, Campbell and her fiancée, Louis Ross, were arrested in connection with the boy’s disappearance on August 10th.

Police spokesperson Jeff Thomason says the two were arrested separately within an hour of each other, “This is not a missing persons case anymore. This is a homicide investigation," Thomason said late Friday outside police headquarters in downtown Oakland. "We are talking to the people responsible. We do believe Hasanni Campbell is dead."

Rogers notes that he’s reviewing police reports to see if there’s enough evidence to file murder charges against 38-year-old Ross, Hasanni’s foster father, who is tentatively scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday.

Police confirm that the boy’s body has not been found.

KRON 4’s Reggie Kumar spoke to John Burris, the couple’s legal consultant, who says he talked to Ross just a few hours before the arrests and that the couple had been undergoing intense questioning by Oakland police, “I know there is no body. I’m surprised as to why they were arrested. Which then means, and we hope, that there may be probable cause to support the arrest, other than they were the last people to see the child alive.”

Police are expected to make an announcement about the arrests in the next few days.

No Charges to Be Filed Against Jennifer Campbell

KCBS has learned that the aunt and foster mother of a missing 5-year-old boy won't be charged in connection with the case.

Monday morning, KCBS learned that Campbell was scheduled to be released from jail some point during the day, without any charges being filed against her.

Campbell was scheduled for arraignment Monday afternoon on aiding and abetting charges.

A team of investigators searched the couple's Bay Area home again Friday for clues in Fremont, Calif.

Thomason said it's an ongoing investigation discuss further what led to the arrest after the boy disappeared on Aug. 10. Ross, the last known person to see Hasanni, said the boy disappeared after he briefly left the boy outside his car in the rear parking lot of an upscale Oakland neighborhood shoe store where his fiancee, Campbell, works.

Prominent San Francisco Bay-area civil rights attorney John Burris, who has been advising the couple shortly after Hasanni's disappearance, said Friday that he was surprised by the couple's arrest.

"I'm not aware of any hard physical evidence that ties either one into a missing child," said Burris, adding that authorities have 72 hours to file charges.

She said if Ross and Campbell, who met online two years ago, know where Hasanni is, to say something.

"We need to find Hasanni."

The aunt and foster mother of 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell, who was reported missing earlier this month and who police now believe was murdered, will be released from custody today after being arrested on Friday, Alameda County Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers said.

Rogers said there is insufficient evidence to charge Jennifer Campbell, 30, as an accessory in Hasanni's murder. The boy's body has not been found.

Rogers said the investigation into the disappearance is continuing and that he's reviewing police reports to see if there's enough evidence to file murder charges against Louis Ross, 38, the boy's foster father.

Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason said Friday that police are no longer considering the case to be a missing-persons case and instead are investigating it as a homicide.

No Wonder There Isn't a Stronger Outcry About the Missing Boy
August 21, 2009
<snipped>
The Oakland Tribune's Tammerlin Drummond complained in a piece yesterday that people weren't out searching for 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell, who allegedly went missing in Rockridge, suggesting that it was because the boy isn't white. Drummond also argued that there was no evidence to suspect Campbell's foster father was involved in the child's disappearance. But of course, there has been ample reason to suspect the foster father from early on in the case, and now there's even more. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, newly released court documents show that Louis Ross threatened to abandon the child just ten days before the boy supposedly went missing.

But more to the point, people have been justified for the past week for not partaking in a massive search of the boy. Drummond compared Hasanni's disappearance to the case of Sandra Cantu who went missing in Tracy. But there is one major difference that explains people's reactions. There was never any question about Sandra's parents being involved in her disappearance, but from the beginning, police questioned Ross' version of events — and rightly so. Investigators searched his home and a junkyard that Ross said he took the boy to before going to Rockridge. Indeed, there is reason to question whether the little boy was ever in Rockridge the day Ross reported him missing. So why should people be blamed for not embarking on what could be a wild goose chase, when police themselves are not doing it?

OAKLAND: UPDATE: FOSTER MOTHER WON'T FACE CHARGES, ADVISER BURRIS 'GLAD'
Mon, 31 Aug 2009 12:24
<snipped>
Oakland attorney John Burris said he's not surprised that the Alameda County District Attorney's office isn't filing any charges against 30-year-old Jennifer Campbell, the boy's foster mother and aunt, because he believes "there was no factual basis for her to be arrested."

Burris said being arrested was traumatic for Campbell, who is six months pregnant, and caused her "a great deal of emotional harm."

But Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers said Campbell will be released from custody later today because there's insufficient evidence at this time to charge her as an accessory in the murder of Hasanni, whose body hasn't been found. However, the investigation into the boy's disappearance is continuing, Rogers said.

Rogers said he's still reviewing police reports to see if there's enough evidence to file murder charges against the boy's foster father, 38-year-old Louis Ross.

If charges are filed, Ross will likely be arraigned in Alameda County Superior Court at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Rogers said.

Thomason couldn't immediately be reached for comment today.

Burris said he thinks that that the Oakland Police Department arrested Campbell as "a tactic to intimidate her to talk" and disclose incriminating evidence against Ross.

He said, "She hadn't done anything wrong but the police didn't accept that."

Burris said he was in the process of finding a lawyer to represent Campbell in case she appeared in court, but that he won't have to do so now that she is being released.

However, he said he has found a lawyer to represent Ross in the event charges are filed against him.

No charges for missing boy's foster mother
Posted: 08/31/2009 02:06:48 PM PDT

The foster mother of a missing 5-year-old boy with cerebral palsy won't face criminal charges after prosecutors decided there isn't enough evidence to proceed with her case.

Alameda County prosecutor Tom Rogers says 33-year-old Jennifer Campbell will not be charged in the disappearance of Hasanni Campbell, who is also her biological nephew.

Rogers says the district attorney's office is still deciding whether to charge her fiance, 38-year-old Louis Ross, who is being held on suspicion of murder.

Ross reported the boy missing Aug. 10, saying he vanished after being left alone in a car parked at the back entrance of an Oakland shoe store where Campbell works.

Police arrested Ross and Campbell Friday, nearly three weeks after Hasanni disappeared.

Missing Boy's Foster Mother Speaks About Release
Posted: 11:05 pm PDT August 31, 2009
Updated: 1:07 am PDT September 1, 2009
<snipped>
The foster mother of Hasanni Campbell told KTVU after her release from jail Monday that she hasn't lost her focus on finding the five-year-old who went missing three weeks ago.

Jennifer Campbell was released from jail just hours before her first scheduled court appearance. Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers said there was “insufficient evidence” to charge her at this time and that police have a "different standard of proof" than prosecutors.

Campbell was arrested Friday on suspicion of aiding and abetting a homicide. Her fiancé Louis Ross was arrested at the couple's Fremont home on the same charge. Prosecutors told KTVU that a decision about whether Ross will be charged with murder will be made by Tuesday morning.

"All I know is that this was one of the most difficult times in my life," Campbell told KTVU after her release. "I'm still focused on finding Hasanni."

Campbell said she was "in utter shock" when police arrested her at the Union City BART station Friday when she spoke to KTVU about being interrogated by police.

"They just said I was guilty of something. I told them I didn't do anything. I just said find Hasanni. They accused me over and over again of doing something. I told them I didn't," Campbell said.

Oakland police have not said what led to the arrest of the foster parents or why investigators believe the child is dead.

Following her release, Campbell attended a prayer service for Hasanni in the Rockridge neighborhood.

Campbell was greeted by friends and those who have helped in the search for Hasanni.

Campbell said she was kept away from other inmates in an isolated cell at Santa Rita jail, but could still hear the inmates yell out derogatory remarks at her.

A search of Lake Elizabeth in Fremont has been organized for Saturday morning. Volunteers said they intend to continue to hold weekly vigils for Hasanni until he is found.

Hasanni's foster mom says couple are innocent
Tuesday September 1, 2009
<snipped>
(08-31) 19:11 PDT OAKLAND -- Hours after being freed from jail, the foster mother of 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell said tearfully Monday that she had nothing to do with the boy's disappearance and is confident her fiance is also innocent.

Jennifer Campbell, 33, standing near a collection of photos and Hasanni's favorite toys at a vigil Monday evening in Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood, said she and Louis Ross "are both accused of a crime we didn't do."

"He's our little boy," said Campbell, who is also Hasanni's aunt. "We want him home."

Campbell was arrested Friday on suspicion of being an accessory after the fact to what Oakland police believe was the boy's murder. But Alameda County prosecutors let her go Monday, saying they had no evidence to make a case.

Ross, 38, Hasanni's foster father, is still being held without bail on suspicion of murder. Prosecutors said they would decide today whether to file charges against him.

Campbell was held over the weekend, during which, she said, police tried to raise doubts in her mind about Ross. The Fremont couple are expecting a child in about two months.

She said she had no such doubts. "I told them that they were lying to me," Campbell said.

"Anybody who knows me knows what I'm capable of," Campbell said. Hurting the boy, she added, is "not in my character."

"You live your life to be a good person," Campbell said, "and all that disappears, and you're interrogated and treated like s-."

Updated: 09/01/2009 02:10:16 PM PDT

Oakland police today released a video that they say shows the last time missing Fremont boy Hasanni Campbell was seen in public.

The video, copies of which were handed out at a press conference this afternoon, shows Hasanni, 5, with his foster father Louis Ross pushing a shopping cart at a Fremont Wal-Mart on Aug. 6. Ross told police Hasanni went missing Aug. 10 from behind the Rockridge shoe store where the boy's foster mother works.

Acting Police Chief Howard Jordan said at the press conference that the district attorney's decision to not press charges against Ross was "unfortunate."

"We know for a fact Hasanni Campbell never made it to Oakland that day," Jordan said.

Jordan said the investigation is continuing and that Ross and foster mother Jennifer Campbell could both potentially be rearrested.

However, investigators have no substantial open leads and will not be conducting any more searches for the boy, who has cerebral palsy, unless they receive new information, said department spokesman Jeff Thomason.

The Alameda County District Attorney's Office announced its decision to not file charges against Ross this morning. Police arrested the foster parents on Friday and said they consider the boy a homicide victim.

Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers said his office had "insufficient evidence" to charge Ross, 38, with killing Hasanni Campbell.

"We're not filing on Louis Ross," Rogers said. "There is insufficient evidence, and the investigation continues."

The District Attorney's Office on Monday decided not to charge Campbell with a crime, and she was released from custody.

Five-year old Hasanni Campbell's step-mother insists he's done nothing wrong.

Jennifer Campbell made the comments while leaving the Santa Rita jail Monday after spending the weekend in custody. Prosecutors now say they don't have enough evidence to hold Campbell. The missing child's step-father Louis Ross remains jailed. The Alameda County District Attorney's office says it will announce charges, if any, against Ross on Tuesday.

"I'm just glad to be out of jail," Campbell told reporters outside the jail. "I didn't do anything. I hope the focus can shift to finding Hasanni and bringing him home safely. We are still having the vigil tonight for him because he is still missing. Thank you to anybody who has offered support. I don't want to comment on the police. All I know is I'm putting my faith in God and trusting him to lead me in the right direction and to steer me the right way. I can't say anything else about anything."

KRON 4’s Reggie Kumar spoke to John Burris, the couple’s legal consultant, who says he talked to Ross just a few hours before the arrests and that the couple had been undergoing intense questioning by Oakland police, “I know there is no body. I’m surprised as to why they were arrested. Which then means, and we hope, that there may be probable cause to support the arrest, other than they were the last people to see the child alive.”

Jennifer Campbell spoke to ABC7 on her way out of jail. She said she didn't do anything wrong and wants the focus of the police investigation to be on Hasanni's whereabouts.

Campbell walked out of the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin a free woman and into the arms of family members who came to get her.

"I'm glad to be out," said Campbell.

Oakland attorney John Burris has been offering legal advice to the couple. He says authorities tried to get Campbell to implicate Ross in Hasanni's disappearance.

"Either to get her to implicate him, in order to have him, not so much implicate her, but feel the pressure of having her be in custody," said Burris.

Before the vigil Campbell said, "They accused me over and over again of doing something I didn't do or knowing something and I told them I didn't and they had to let me go. They didn't have evidence to hold me."

Campbell admitted police tried to get her to turn on Ross.

Before police said the couple had been cooperating.

"Why do I want to talk to them now? What do I want to say to them now? 'Have you found Hasanni?' No. 'Are you looking for Hasanni?' I don't know," said Campbell.
Ross is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday.

When Campbell was asked what she thinks police may do to Ross on Tuesday, she said "I don't know. He didn't do anything. They have to let him go."

Oakland Police say they are anticipating a press conference some time on Tuesday, but it is unclear if they'll make it before or after the scheduled arraignment of Ross. They could either drop all of the charges against Ross for lack of evidence or drop a bombshell and explain why they're charging him with the murder of Hasanni.

The Alameda County District Attorney's Office will not file criminal charges against Louis Ross, the foster father of a 5-year-old disabled Fremont boy who is missing and who police believe was killed, authorities said.

Assistant District Attorney Tom Rodgers said his office had "insufficient evidence" against to charge the 38-year-old Ross with killing Hasanni Campbell, who Ross reported went missing on Aug. 10.

"We're not filing on Louis Ross, there is insufficient evidence and the investigation continues," Rodgers said.

Oakland Police arrested and questioned Ross and his fiance Jennifer Campbell, 30, on Friday. The district attorney's office on Monday decided not to charge Campbell with a crime and she was released.

"I'm not doing well," she said in an interview after the vigil. "I'm inspired by the people who are here. I'm inspired by God. When I was incarcerated, my faith was stronger than ever." Campbell, who is six months pregnant, said Monday night that she did not believe her fiance½would remain in jail for long either.

D.A. won't charge foster dad in Hasanni case
Tuesday September 1, 2009
<snipped>
(09-01) 09:21 PDT OAKLAND -- The foster father of a missing 5-year-old Fremont boy will not face criminal charges and will be released from jail, an Alameda County prosecutor said today.

Louis Ross, 38, was arrested Friday on suspicion of murder in what police believe was the killing of Hasanni Campbell. But there was insufficient evidence to charge him, Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers said.

Rogers declined to elaborate, but said the investigation by Oakland police was continuing.

The decision came a day after Rogers said there would be no charges brought against Ross' fiancee, Jennifer Campbell, 33. Campbell, who is six months pregnant with Ross' child, was arrested Friday on suspicion of being an accessory to murder.

John Burris, an attorney who has been consulting with the couple, said today that he was gratified that prosecutors had opted not to file charges.

"I'm not surprised," Burris said. "There never was evidence linking him to a crime. At best, there was some suspicion that the police may have had, but that suspicion wasn't supported by any evidence. So I think now the attention should go back toward finding Hasanni. It was a travesty that these two people were subjected to this kind of humiliation without just cause."

Campbell's mother, Pamela Clark, 62, of San Francisco agreed, saying today, "The focus should be finding this missing boy." She said of the attention on the couple, "It's like a terrible witch hunt."

Ross was expected to be released from Santa Rita Jail later today.

Alameda County prosecutors say there's not enough evidence to hold Louis Ross in the alleged murder of five-year old Hasanni Campbell.

KRON 4's Will Tran says that means Ross will be released from custody a day after his financee Jennifer Campbell was allowed to go free for the same reason.

Oakland police arrested the pair last Friday evening. At the time they said Hasanni's case was a matter of homicide not of a missing person.

<snipped>
The foster parents of missing Fremont 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell may have been released from jail because of a lack of evidence, but the Oakland police said Tuesday the couple remained the focus of their investigation.

At an afternoon news conference, Acting Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan left little doubt that the couple remained at the center of the "on-going" investigation.

"This case is an on-going investigation; we will continue to follow up on leads,” he said. “We strongly believe and know for a fact that Hasanni Campbell never made it to Oakland on August 10th...We are continuing putting our efforts into solving this case and potentially re-arresting Mr. Louis Ross or Jennifer Campbell at some point. We respect the DA's opinion, but we have more work to do here." The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office released Jennifer Campbell on Monday and said it would release Louis Ross on Tuesday.

Veteran defense attorney John Burris, who has been advising the couple, told KTVU the arrests were an investigative gamble that had backfired.

A search of Lake Elizabeth in Fremont has been organized for Saturday morning. Volunteers said they intend to continue to hold weekly vigils for Hasanni until he is found.

UPDATED: No charges in Hasanni's disappearance
Tuesday, September 01, 2009 | 8:15 PM
<snipped>
Both foster parents of a missing 5-year-old boy are now off the hook -- at least for the moment.

Prosecutors decided there isn't enough evidence to charge either one with his disappearance. But authorities still have their suspicions about what happened to little Hasanni Campbell when he vanished three weeks ago.

During a press conference, police released surveillance video taken inside a Fremont Wal-Mart the evening of August 6th.

It shows 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell, sitting in a shopping cart, wearing a red cap and holding hands with his foster parents, four days before his foster father, Louis Toss, reported him missing.

Investigators say it is the last time they were able to independently verify Hasanni was alive.

"We strongly believe and we know for a fact that Hasanni Campbell never made it to Oakland on August 10 on College Avenue at 4:15 as was previously reported," said Chief Howard Jordan from the Oakland Police Department.

Police aren't saying what evidence they have that leads them to believe Ross is guilty, but they say there could be more arrests to come.

"We are continuing to put our efforts into solving this case and potentially re-arresting Mr. Louis Ross and or Jennifer Campbell at some point," said Chief Jordan.

Oakland Police Chief did not take any questions during the press conference about why the department is investigating this case as a homicide. After the conference, police told ABC7 they will no longer be making statements about this case until there is either an arrest or a mayor development.

UPDATED: OPD Focus Still On Uncharged Foster Dad
Sep 1, 2009 2:54 pm US/Pacific
<snipped>
Oakland police said Tuesday that they were continuing to focus their homicide investigation on the foster parents of a missing 5-year-old disabled boy, despite prosecutors announcing there isn't enough evidence to charge them.

Police Chief Howard Jordan said that investigators know Hasanni Campbell was not in Oakland on Aug. 10 — the day his foster father Louis Ross told authorities the boy disappeared after being briefly left alone in a car outside the Shuz of Rockridge shoe store in the 6000 block of College Avenue.

"We strongly believe and know for a fact that Hasanni Campbell never made it to Oakland on August 10 to College Avenue at 4:15 as was previously reported," Jordan said.

Jordan made his comments after prosecutors decided no charges would be filed against Ross or his fiancee Jennifer Campbell. She is also Hasanni's biological aunt.

Police also released surveillance footage from a Wal-Mart store in Fremont recorded on Aug. 6 that they said is the last known sighting of the boy.

In photographs, the boy is seen wearing jeans, a black jacket, black shoes and a red and blue cap. Hasanni and his sister were captured in the pictures shopping with Ross and Campbell.

Earlier Tuesday, Alameda County Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers said police had insufficient evidence against Ross, 38, who was arrested Friday on suspicion of killing the boy.

"We are continuing to put our efforts into solving this case and potentially re-arresting Mr. Louis Ross or Jennifer Campbell at some point," Jordan said. "We respect the DA's opinion but we have some more work to do here."

Ross will help with the search for the boy upon his release from Alameda County's Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, his attorney John Burris said, calling the decision not to file any charges against Ross at this time "terrific."

Burris said Oakland police seemed to suspect Ross hadn't told them the truth but he indicated there isn't any evidence to support those suspicions.

"There aren't any independent witnesses and there is no physical evidence or DNA" pointing to Ross's guilt, Burris said. "There's nothing that tied him to his involvement in the disappearance of Hasanni."

UPDATED: Update: Acting Police Chief Says Investigators Know Hasanni Campbell Was Not in Oakland on Date of Reported Disappearance
9/1/2009 9:00:00 AM
<snipped>
The acting police chief says investigators know five-year old Hasanni Campbell was not in Oakland on August 10th, the day the foster parents say the child disappeared.

Acting Chief Howard Jordan made the remarks at a news conference held after prosecutors said there isn't enough evidence to charge Louis Ross with murder in the case.

Jordan says investigators remain convinced Ross and Jennifer Campbell are responsible for the disappearance and murder of the five year old.

Oakland Police spokesman Officer Jeff Thomason tells KRON 4's Haaziq Madyun investigators continue to build their case against the child's foster parents. Campbell was released from custody Monday. Ross is due to be let go later Tuesday.

Police are also releasing video showing Ross and Campbell with Hasanni from a surveillance camera at a Wal-Mart store taken several days before the child disappeared.

Investigators have said they don't believe Ross left Hasanni alone behind a Rockridge shoe store as the foster father has insisted happened. Last week police said this is no longer a missing person's case but a case of homicide.

D.A. won't charge foster dad in Hasanni case
September 1, 2009
<snipped>
(09-01) 13:50 PDT OAKLAND -- The foster father of Hasanni Campbell will not face criminal charges and will be released from jail, a prosecutor said today, even as police declared that they "know for a fact" that his story of how the 5-year-old Fremont boy disappeared is false.

The Alameda County district attorney's office said it did not have enough against Louis Ross, 38, to build a case that he murdered Hasanni. Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers, who made the announcement, declined to elaborate but said Oakland police were still investigating.

The decision came a day after Rogers said there would be no charges brought against Ross' fiancee and the boy's foster mother, Jennifer Campbell, 33. Campbell, who is six months pregnant with Ross' child, was arrested Friday on suspicion of being an accessory to murder, the same day Ross was booked on suspicion of murder.

Campbell left Santa Rita Jail in Dublin on Monday afternoon and went straight to a vigil for Hasanni outside the shoe store in Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood where Ross said he last saw his foster son Aug. 10.

But at a news conference today, acting Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan made it clear that investigators didn't believe Ross' account of events.

"We strongly believe and we know for a fact that Hasanni Campbell never made it to Oakland on Aug. 10 to College Avenue at 4:15 as was previously reported," Jordan said.

Police released a DVD and photos showing Hasanni, his year-old sister, Ross and Campbell shopping at a Wal-Mart store in Fremont on Aug. 6. The images were taken from store surveillance cameras.

Officer Jeff Thomason, a police spokesman, said the Wal-Mart trip is "the last time that we have independent information about Hasanni Campbell being alive."

The images show Hasanni walking next to Campbell as she pushes a shopping cart with a big box inside it. Ross is pulling the cart from the front.

Jordan said he respected prosecutors' decision not to charge the couple. But he held out the possibility that Ross and Campbell could be re-arrested.

"We have some more work to do here, and we're going to continue to work diligently to try to solve this case," the chief said.

Prosecutors Release Both Foster Parents
September 1, 2009
<snipped>
The Alameda County District Attorney's Office has decided to order the release of both foster parents of a missing 5-year-old boy, saying there is not enough evidence to charge them. According to the Chron, the foster father, Louis Ross, will be released later today. His fiancée, Jennifer Campbell, was freed yesterday. Oakland police had arrested the couple last Friday, apparently in the hopes that they would incriminate themselves. But according to the Trib, Campbell refused to talk to investigators. It's not clear whether Ross was cooperative. Police do not believe Ross' story that little Hasanni Campbell went missing from behind a Rockridge shoe store last month. Investigators also discovered that Ross had recently threatened to abandon the boy. In addition, Ross has admitted to failing a police lie-detector test.

DA Drops All Charges in Hasanni Campbell Case
Updated 2:38 PM PDT, Tue, Sep 1, 2009
<snipped>
The district attorney won't file charges against the man arrested in the disappearance of his fiancee's disabled foster child.

That word crossed the wires early Tuesday morning.

Alameda County Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers says there's insufficient evidence against Louis Ross in the Aug. 10 disappearance of Hasanni Campbell.

Rogers says the 38-year-old Ross was released Tuesday.

Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan said Tuesday that investigators know the child was not in Oakland on Aug. 10.

Also Tuesday, police also released surveillance footage from a Wal-Mart store in Fremont recorded on Aug. 6 that they say it is the last known sighting of the boy.

An attorney who has consulted with the foster parents of the 5-year-old old, who was reported missing three weeks ago and is now believed to have been murdered, said Monday that he was "glad" that no charges were being filed against the foster mother either. Burris said police rushed to judgment in an effort to get new information in the case.

A police search warrant affidavit indicated Ross sent an expletive-filled text message to Campbell 10 days before the boy went missing, threatening to leave him alone on a BART platform.

Sherri-Lyn Miller, a volunteer whose company has created T-shirts and fliers during the search, said the focus should be on locating Hasanni, not on Ross and Campbell.

"We're not going to treat him as a homicide victim like the police because we don't know that yet," Miller said. "It's time to bring this baby home."

UPDATED: Missing Fremont boy's foster father calls police investigation "irrelevant" after release from jail
Posted: 09/01/2009 09:02:51 AM PDT
Updated: 09/01/2009 07:51:12 PM PDT
<snipped>
Louis Ross, foster father of Hasanni Campbell, described jail as "hell" and refused to answer questions about the police investigation into the boy's disappearance after he was released from jail tonight.

Ross was released from Santa Rita Jail in Dublin at 6:30 p.m. wearing black sweatpants, a white hat and white long-sleeve shirt. He was unshaven and visibly angry. Asked what it was like in jail, he said: "One word: hell."

He said he and fiancee Jennifer Campbell, the boy's foster mother and aunt, would continue looking for the boy, who Ross reported missing Aug. 10.

"As long as I have got breath in my body, we will search for Hasanni," he said.

Ross was arrested at the family's Fremont home Friday. He said he was told to step out of his house, identify what he was wearing and put his hands up. He waived his rights and talked to police for a little while Friday afternoon and then asked to speak to attorney John Burris, who has been counseling Ross, 38, and Campbell, 30.

"I told the same story I told to the detectives," Ross said tonight. "They got the same story, but they weren't happy with that story. They wanted something else."

Several times while speaking to the media after his release, he called the police investigation "irrelevant."

"We are going to do what we need to do as parents," he said. "We don't care what (the police) do."

Campbell, while awaiting Ross' release from jail tonight, said that after her neighbors told police that they hadn't seen Hasanni for three weeks before his reported disappearance, she produced a receipt showing that the family had gone shopping at the Wal-Mart on Aug. 6.

Campbell said police have told her that they have evidence that the couple is implicated in this crime but that they will not say what it is.

"I don't know what type of evidence they plan to come up with," she said. "I know I am innocent, and I know Louis is innocent."

Campbell said she last saw Hasanni around 7 a.m. Aug. 10 while the boy was still sleeping. She said she kissed him goodbye and went to work. "It's been a living a nightmare ever since," she said.

She said that when she returned to her house Monday after being released from jail, every room was a mess from a police search conducted Friday after the couple's arrest. A couch was flipped over, things were pulled out of dressers and cupboards, Hasanni's clothing out of the closet and some of her paperwork was missing. "Everything is everywhere," she said. "They went through every single room."

Investigators, who are treating the case as a homicide, said today they have no substantial open leads and will not be conducting any more searches for Hasanni unless they receive new information.

"We believe we have a case, and there is a lot of information we can't make public while the investigation is open," said Oakland police spokesman Officer Jeff Thomason. "But the video we're releasing is big. This is the last time anyone other than our two suspects confirmed Hasanni was alive."

Thomason said the Oakland police investigation has not included searches in Monterey, where Ross lived until about nine months ago according to a former housemate.

"There are probably only two people who know where Hasanni is, and those are our suspects," Thomason said.

Burris said he has lined up criminal lawyers to defend the foster parents should charges be filed in the future.

The 1-year-old girl was taken into protective custody after Hasanni's disappearance. Campbell went to court today and learned that her parental rights are being severed and that the girl will be put up for adoption. "I basically will never see her again," she said.

"There was never sufficient evidence against either of them," he said.

Burris believed the arrests were "a tactic to see if they would turn against each other but it was unsuccessful."

"I hope the attention now turns to trying to find Hasanni and the people who possibly kidnapped him," Burris said.

Foster Father Describes Jail Experience As 'Hell'
Posted: 10:51 pm PDT September 1, 2009
Updated: 1:19 am PDT September 2, 2009
<snipped>
Louis Ross looked worn out when he walked out of Santa Rita Jail in Dublin at around 7 p.m., arm-in-arm with his fiance Jennifer Campbell.

Ross was released after the Alameda County District Attorney decided there was not enough evidence to prosecute him. Ross was arrested last Friday on suspicion of murdering his five-year-old foster son.

Ross described his four days in jail as "hell."

He said investigators tried to deceive him on Friday afternoon, shortly after they arrested his fiance at the Union City BART station without Ross's knowledge. Ross said the police started texting him messages posing as Jennifer.

"Her text messages didn't make sense," said Ross. "I find out she wasn't texting me. They had her in custody. They [police] had her cell phone ... basically coercing me to come out come get her at the BART."

Ross said police then ordered him to come out of his Fremont home. He said when he came out, "about four or five police officers with automatic weapons pointed at me. [They said] 'Walk back up...kneel down'."

When asked what was going through his mind Ross answered, "No sudden movement. I didn't want to be on the next six o'clock news as the next casualty."

During the police interrogation, Ross says he waived his right to remain silent and answered questions from the investigators.

"I told the same story I told the previous detective." he said. "They got the same story; they were not happy with the story they got. They wanted something else."

Tuesday evening, the couple said they will take life one day at a time and continue to look for Hasanni.

"I know I'm innocent," said Campbell. "I know Louis is innocent."

Campbell said as Ross was waiting to be released, her family suffered another blow. A family court formally took away custody of Hasanni's 19-month-old sister, Aliyah.

Missing boy's foster dad released - no charges
September 2, 2009
<snipped>
21:39 PDT OAKLAND, CALIF. -- The foster father of Hasanni Campbell will not face criminal charges at this time, a prosecutor said Tuesday, even as police declared that they "know for a fact" that his story of how the 5-year-old Fremont boy disappeared is false.

Officer Jeff Thomason, a police spokesman, said the Walmart trip is "the last time that we have independent information about Hasanni Campbell being alive."

Jordan said while it was unfortunate that prosecutors "did not find it fit" to charge either Ross or Campbell, he respects their decision.

However, he added, "We are continuing to put our efforts into solving this case and potentially rearresting Mr. Louis Ross or Jennifer Campbell."

Friends of the couple plan to search for Hasanni on Saturday at Lake Elizabeth in Fremont.

"The focus should be finding this missing boy," said Campbell's mother, Pamela Clark, 62, of San Francisco. She said of the attention on the couple, "It's like a terrible witch hunt."

Campbell foster parents released, no charges filed
September 1, 2009 – 8:23 pm
<snipped>
Citing insufficient evidence, the Alameda County District Attorney’s office cancelled an arraignment hearing for Louis Ross, jailed last week with his fiancee on suspicion of murdering five-year-old Hassani Campbell, officials said Tuesday.

Despite doubts surrounding the strength of the investigation into the high-profile case, Oakland police officials said the department will continue to investigate the whereabouts of the boy. His foster parents — Ross and fiancee Jennifer Campbell — say the boy went missing in Rockridge a little over two weeks ago, but investigators still question that claim and hope to re-arrest the couple, said Oakland Police chief Howard Jordan.

Oakland attorney John Burris, who is acting as an advisor for the accused couple, said the evidence is still too weak to have justified an arrest. He believes that investigators lack convincing evidence to substantiate claims that Campbell was dead or missing prior to August 10, when Campbell and Ross reported that he had disappeared from a car parked behind the Rockridge shoe store.

“My feeling about this is that the evidence they did have was no more than a suspicion,” Burris said in an interview this afternoon. “The D.A. did the right thing.”

He said the investigation was “excruciating and very challenging” for Ross and Campbell, who is six months pregnant. “They were in the process of building a family,” Burris said.

Officials at Oakland Police Department could not be immediately reached for a response to Burris’ comments. Burris is a high-profile attorney who has worked with clients including Barry Bonds and Tupac Shakur, and has a record of victories against the Oakland Police Department including a $10.9 million class action lawsuit in the high-profile Riders Case.

This still is from a video, released by Oakland Police today, which proports to show Hassani Campbell at a Fremont store shortly before he disappeared.

Louis Ross released from jail, last video of Hassani Campbell released
September 2, 3:49 AM
<snipped>
On Tuesday, missing Hassani Campbell’s foster father was released from jail after being arrested on Friday for suspicion of murder.

Louis Ross and his fiancé Jennifer Campbell, Hassani’s aunt, were both taken into custody on Friday as authorities announced the couple was suspected of murder and the case of the missing 5-year-old was now a homicide investigation.

Campbell was released on Monday because authorities said they had insufficient evidence against her. The district attorney had until Tuesday to file charges against Ross, but instead released him as well.

Despite their release, investigators still question the couple’s story surrounding Hassani’s disappearance and Oakland Police chief Howard Jordan announced they hope to re-arrest the couple.
Hassani, who has cerebral palsy, went missing Aug. 10 and was last seen with Ross, who claimed the boy disappeared after he left him alone briefly in a shoe store parking lot. Police said Hassani never made it to that shoe store, effectively stating Ross' story is false.

Detectives continued to focus their investigation on the foster parents of a missing 5-year-old disabled boy despite prosecutors announcing there was not enough evidence to charge them with murder, police said.

Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan said Tuesday that investigators know Hasanni Campbell was not in Oakland on Aug. 10. That's the day Hasanni's foster father, Louis Ross, told authorities the boy disappeared after being left alone briefly outside an Oakland shoe store.

"We strongly believe and know for a fact that Hasanni Campbell never made it to Oakland on August 10 to College Avenue at 4:15 as was previously reported," Jordan said.

"We are continuing to put our efforts into solving this case and potentially re-arresting Mr. Louis Ross or Jennifer Campbell at some point," Jordan said. "We respect the DA's opinion but we have some more work to do here."

On Tuesday, police also released surveillance footage from a Wal-Mart store in Fremont recorded on Aug. 6 that they say it is the last known sighting of the boy.

In photographs, the boy is seen wearing jeans, a black jacket, black shoes and a red and blue cap. Hasanni and his sister were captured in the pictures shopping with Ross and Campbell.

Sherri-Lyn Miller, a volunteer whose company has created T-shirts and fliers during the search, said the focus should be on locating Hasanni, not on Ross and Campbell.

"We're not going to treat him as a homicide victim like the police because we don't know that yet," Miller said. "It's time to bring this baby home."

(09-02) 06:25 PDT OAKLAND -- The foster parents of Hasanni Campbell proclaimed their innocence outside jail, saying they had nothing to do with the 5-year-old Fremont's disappearance and attacking the tactics of police investigators who believe their son was killed.

Outside jail on Tuesday evening, Ross told reporters that he was angry at the couple's treatment by police.

"See, I trusted their work, but they've shown through their actions their work cannot be trusted," Ross said. "They've shown through their actions they have an agenda."

Ross said he has repeated his account of what he did before Hasanni disappeared. "They got the same story, but they were not happy with the story that they got," he said. "They wanted something else."

Campbell agreed, saying, "I don't know what type of evidence they plan to come up with or what they plan to do, and I'll leave their investigation alone. I know I'm innocent, and I know Louis is innocent."

Officer Jeff Thomason, a police spokesman, said the Walmart trip is "the last time that we have independent information about Hasanni Campbell being alive." Ross and Campbell said they were the ones who gave the police the information about the shopping trip.

"I gave them a catalog of this, and I supplied them with proof. I said, 'As a matter of fact, here's a receipt. Check the time-date stamp. Look at the video. You'll see him there - you'll see all of us there."

Ross said after police arrested Campbell at the Union City BART Station on Friday afternoon, officers used her cell phone and texted him in an attempt to coax him out of his home on Roxie Terrace in Fremont. Ross said officers with "automatic weapons" ordered him outside.

"You do not destroy people, tear them down or destroy families so you can prove that you were right," Ross said.

Hasanni and his sister were placed with the couple in late 2008. The girl has been removed from their custody. The children's biological parents live separately in San Francisco. Records with San Francisco's Department of Human Services show no history of problems.

Murderers or model parents?
Wednesday, September 2, 2009
<snipped>
Hasanni Campbell's foster parents - whom Oakland police held over the weekend on suspicion of being involved in the 5-year-old Fremont boy's disappearance - would appear to be the least likely of suspects, according to social service records that have been turned over to investigators.

In fact, regular home inspections and other checks by San Francisco's Department of Human Services into Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell of Fremont show a spotless record of foster parenting.

Hasanni and his baby sister, now 1 year old, were placed with Ross and Campbell, the children's aunt, in late 2008. The children's biological parents live in San Francisco, so social workers in the city kept tabs on them.

Both Campbell and Ross were run through state and FBI databases for any criminal record or instances of child abuse. They came back clean.

Every month, social workers stopped by the couple's home on Roxie Terrace in Fremont. The last visit was July 22, less than three weeks before Ross reported Hasanni missing Aug. 10.

"If anything, they went out of their way to take care of his various medical problems," said a San Francisco social services official, who asked not to be named because he was not authorized to speak while the criminal investigation into Hasanni's disappearance continues.

Hasanni has cerebral palsy, and the couple made sure he was equipped at UCSF with special pediatric leg braces. They also regularly took him for treatment at Children's Hospital Oakland, he said.

Although Oakland police say they don't believe Ross' story of Hasanni's disappearance, the San Francisco official is perplexed.

"They were really good foster parents," he said.

Police say missing boy dead, foster parents suspects
updated 11:04 p.m. EDT, Tue September 1, 2009
<snipped>
Police say the foster parents of a missing 5-year-old California boy with cerebral palsy are suspects in what is now being called a homicide investigation.

Jennifer Campbell and Louis Ross, who are engaged, told police in Oakland, California, that Hasanni Campbell disappeared on August 10 while Ross was dropping him off at the shoe store where his fiance worked.

Police arrested the two as suspects, but released them this week pending further investigation, Lt. Jeff Thomason said.

"We had nothing to do with it. He's our little boy we want him and we want him home, and our main concern is finding him," a tearful Campbell told CNN affiliate KGO.

In an interview last month with HLN's Nancy Grace, Ross said he left Hasanni outside his BMW for two to five minutes while he went to get his fiance to open the back door of the store.

"By the time I got there, Jennifer is already out of the store, walking toward me, asking, 'Where is Hasanni?' And I say, 'What do you mean, where is Hasanni?' And I look around to the side, and he is no longer there."

But police believe Hasanni was not near the store August 10, Thomason said.

The officer said the Wal-Mart surveillance footage from August 6 represents the last known sighting of Hasanni alive, independent of his foster parents' reports.

"It shows we have an independent source showing him alive," he said. "We don't believe he was ever in north Oakland on the 10th [of August]."

Police: Hasanni Was Not in Oakland
September 2, 2009
<snipped>
Acting Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan said that department investigators "know for a fact" that little Hasanni Campbell didn't go missing from behind a Rockridge shoe store on August 10 as his stepfather claims, according to the Trib and the Chron. In other words, stepfather Louis Ross has lied and is still lying about what happened to the 5-year-old boy. Jordan did not disclose more details on how investigators reached that conclusion, but said Oakland police would not conduct any more searches for the boy unless they got additional credible information about what happened to him. Oakland cops say that the last known public sighting of the boy was on August 6 at a Wal-Mart store in Fremont. Jordan made his comments after the Alameda County District Office decided to not file charges against Ross or Hasanni's foster mother/aunt Jennifer Campbell and ordered them both released from jail.

Missing boy's foster father blasts police
Investigators Don't Buy Story
September 1, 2009
<snipped>
The foster father of a missing 5-year-old boy is out of jail and vowing to find the boy with or without police help. Oakland police released Louis Ross Tuesday night after arresting him on suspicion of homicide.

Ross is being quite vocal about the police department. He claims they have a preconceived theory about Hasanni's disappearance and says police know for a fact, in their hearts, that he killed the boy and that he was never really kidnapped.

As for now, the district attorney is siding with Ross, who is a free man after being released from the Santa Rita jail where he had been held since Friday on suspicion of murder. Investigators point to recently-released surveillance video from August 6th, of Hasanni and his family at a Fremont Walmart, as the last known citing of the boy.
They just do not believe the foster parents' story.

"We are continuing to put our efforts into solving this case and potentially re-arresting Mr. Louis Ross or Jennifer Campbell at some point," Police Chief Howard Johnson said.

"See... and I trusted their word. But, they've shown through their actions their word cannot be trusted. They've shown though their actions they have an agenda," Ross said referring to investigators' efforts to implicate him, including texting him from foster mother Jennifer Campbell's phone after the two were arrested last Friday. She was released Monday evening. He was released Tuesday night.

Currently, no one is in jail for Hasanni's disappearance. But, police say there is one prime suspect in this case and it is Louis Ross. The search for Hasanni will be continued on Saturday at Lake Elizabeth in Fremont. The organizers of the volunteer search are looking for divers to look in the lake.

Not Enough Evidence - Foster Parents Released
Wednesday, 02 September 2009 7:26AM
<snipped>
Acting Oakland police chief Howard Jordan claims police know for a fact that little Hasanni Campbell was never in the Rockridge area where his foster father, Louis Ross, claims he went missing.

Jordan refused to say what those facts are, but the district attorney believed there was not enough evidence to prosecute Ross, or Hasanni’s foster mother, Jennifer Campbell, on murder charges.

Legal analyst and former prosecutor Steven Clark says police were trying a standard technique when making the arrests.

”The police tried to separate the couple and get incriminating statements, and see if under police pressure they would disclose more information,” said Clark. “So the arrests were used as a police investigative tool, which is frequently done to get information from a suspect. So I think it was a good police tactic, it just didn’t, unfortunately, produce enough evidence to generate a charge at this time.”

Search for Hasanni continues Saturday at Lake Elizabeth in Fremont
Posted: 09/02/2009 04:10:11 PM PDT
<snipped>
Volunteers and donations of food and beverages are needed for the Saturday search for Hasanni Campbell, the disabled Fremont boy who was reported missing Aug. 10.

Sherri Miller is organizing the search of Lake Elizabeth at 40000 Paseo Padre Parkway in Fremont. A certified diver contacted Miller to volunteer his time, and the San Jose volunteer search and rescue team will bring diving equipment to the search, which starts at 9 a.m. Saturday. But Miller said Wednesday she still needs volunteers to register people at the start, assign tasks and assist with lunch.

She said she also needs donated food and beverages to feed the volunteers.

Miller, the owner of All in One Stop, a San Leandro print shop, got involved in the search the day after the 5-year-old boy was reported missing from the rear driveway of Shuz of Rockridge, a shoe store where Jennifer Campbell, the boy's foster mother and aunt, works.

Police said Tuesday the couple are the only suspects in the case and that they have evidence that the boy was never at the shoe store.

Since Hasanni went missing, Miller has printed thousands of missing-person fliers and dozens of T-shirts with Hasanni's face and information about him and the case.

Miller got involved in searching for missing children after Sandra Cantu of Tracy went missing earlier this year. The 8-year-old girl later was found dead, and Sunday school teacher Melissa Huckaby, 28, has been charged with the killing.

Soulscape,

I'm having trouble seeing a time stamp on the surveillance video, however, I did find this article that states Hasanni was seen at the WalMart around 8 p.m. on August 6. Perhaps in light of this information you can decipher the numbers on the video.

Hasanni's foster parents say they're innocent
Thursday, September 3, 2009

The foster parents of Hasanni Campbell proclaimed their innocence outside jail, saying they had nothing to do with the 5-year-old Fremont boy's disappearance and attacking the tactics of police investigators who believe their son is dead and suspect them of being involved in his killing.

Ross told police that he last saw Hasanni on Aug. 10 outside a shoe store on Oakland's College Avenue where Campbell, the boy's aunt, works. He said he believes someone kidnapped the boy, who has cerebral palsy.

But acting Police Chief Howard Jordan said at a news conference Tuesday, "We know for a fact that Hasanni Campbell never made it to Oakland on Aug. 10 to College Avenue."

Officer Jeff Thomason, a police spokesman, said the Walmart trip is "the last time that we have independent information about Hasanni Campbell being alive."

Ross and Campbell said they were the ones who gave the police the information about the shopping trip.

Reward for Hasanni Campbell upped to $60,000
Posted: 09/03/2009 01:03:28 PM PDT
Updated: 09/03/2009 01:30:44 PM PDT
<snipped>
The reward for information leading to the conviction of the person or people who abducted Hasanni Campbell, the disabled Fremont boy was reported missing nearly a month ago, has jumped to $60,000, authorities said today. The Oakland Police Department's Crime Stoppers Program received $50,000 in contributions from the Alameda County supervisors and the county of San Francisco.

Alameda County Supervisors Gail Steele and Scott Haggerty initiated the move to increase the reward by $25,000 for information leading to the whereabouts of the 5-year-old boy, who was reported missing Aug. 10 from the rear driveway of Shuz of Rockridge.

Because the boy's biological parents live in San Francisco, the city's Department of Human Services has been involved in the case. The biological parents gave up custody of the children because of health and other problems, authorities have said.

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom authorized a $25,000 reward for information leading to the identification, apprehension and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the abduction of Hasanni, who has cerebral palsy and wears braces on his feet.

"We hope this award will lead to information on the whereabouts of Hasanni Campbell," Newsom said in a statement. "If you have any leads, please contact the Oakland Police Department."

"This case has touched everyone in our community and across the region and with the increased reward money we are hoping to bring closure to this case, said Oakland's acting police chief, Howard Jordan, in a statement.

(09-03) 14:05 PDT OAKLAND --A reward fund for information leading to the whereabouts of 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell has grown to $60,000 with contributions from the Alameda County Board of Supervisors and from San Francisco, police said Thursday.

Hasanni's foster father, Louis Ross, reported him missing Aug. 10, saying he last saw him outside a shoe store on College Avenue in Oakland where his fiancee and the boy's foster mother, Jennifer Campbell, works.

Oakland police arrested the Fremont couple Friday on suspicion of being involved in what they believe is the boy's killing, but the Alameda County district attorney declined to file charges.

The couple say they are innocent.

The reward fund includes $25,000 from the county supervisors; $25,000 authorized by San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom; and $10,000 from Crime Stoppers.

Bay Area Counties Help Increase Hasanni Campbell Reward to $60,000

Oakland police say the reward for missing 5-year-old boy Hasanni Campbell is increasing to $60,000 thanks to large contributions from Alameda and San Francisco counties.

Oakland police and Crime Stoppers initially offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the whereabouts of Hasanni.

But Oakland police said the Alameda County Board of Supervisors and San Francisco County are contributing another $25,000 each to the reward.

Hasanni's biological parents live in San Francisco and the city's Department of Human Services had been involved in supervising him by checking in with his foster parents periodically.

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom said in a statement, "We hope this award will lead to information on the whereabouts of Hasanni Campbell. If you have any leads, please contact the Oakland Police Department."

Oakland Acting Police Chief Howard Jordan said in a statement, "This case has touched everyone in our community and across the region and with the increased reward money we are hoping to bring closure to this case.

Last Friday, Oakland police said they consider Hasanni's disappearance to be a homicide case, not a missing persons case. They arrested Ross on suspicion of murder and Jennifer Campbell on suspicion of being an accomplice to murder.

But Ross and Campbell were released from custody earlier this week after the Alameda County District Attorney's Office said there's not enough evidence to charge them at this time.

Saturday Search Planned For Hasanni Campbell
Sep 4, 2009 5:12 pm US/Pacific
<snipped>
Civilian volunteers will search for missing 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell at Lake Elizabeth in Fremont this weekend, according to event organizers.

At 9 a.m. Saturday, civilian teams will search the perimeter of the lake while professional divers go out on the water, said San Leandro business owner Sherri Miller, who is organizing the search.

Miller said she hopes Saturday's search will provide new leads in the case. She and two colleagues came up with Lake Elizabeth because it's big, it's in Fremont and it hasn't been searched yet.

"It's a large area, and we have enough volunteers to search it," Miller said, adding that close to 100 people have signed up to help search the region.

"Lake Elizabeth is our meeting point, and we're branching off into teams tomorrow," Miller said. "We won't know until tomorrow where we're sending them."

Miller said San Jose Search and Rescue, a nonprofit that helps with missing person searches and other recovery operations, volunteered their entire team.

She said she also invited Alameda County law enforcement officials to participate, but the Fremont Police Department and the county sheriff's office declined.

The video with the 7:56 time stamp is the entering time. Sunset for Fremont on Aug. 6th was 8:10 pm. You can see when they entered that it was light out. Figuring no less than 30 minutes to do the entire shop, it had to have been dark when they left. So the last seen was some 30 to 45 minutes after the 7:56 entering time.

I don't suppose we'll ever get the time they left. I've looked closely, but it's not there.

I run a chart for 8:30pm and lo & behold Jupiter had just entered the 12th house of secrets. Ascendant at 23 degrees 4 minutes of Aquarius, and Jupiter at 23 degrees 3 minutes of Aquarius. That took my breath away. Maybe I'm just easily influenced.

We're all waiting with bated breath for a glimpse into the event. At least I know I am. Bless you for your diligence Angel.

Keeper of memories: Campbell search organizer known for memorializing missing youth
September 4, 2009 – 7:12 pm
<snipped>
Those who die on Oakland’s toughest avenues may get little more than a brief mention in local papers or on the nightly news, but their memories live on at Sherri-Lyn Miller’s print shop on East 14th Street in San Leandro, just blocks away from the Bayfair Center shopping mall.

Now Miller is working to keep the public aware of another person missed by friends and family—five-year-old Hassani Campbell, who was in the care of his Fremont foster parents Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell when he vanished sometime around August 10. Last week the Oakland Police Department arrested Ross and Campbell on suspicion of murder, but the Alameda County District Attorney’s office declined to press charges and the two were released.

Miller is organizing a dive at Lake Elizabeth in Fremont to search for the boy. The dive, which will begin Saturday at 9 a.m., will involve the volunteer organization San Jose Search and Rescue, as well as residents from throughout the area. “It takes a village to raise a child and it takes a village to find a child,” said Miller, 40.

Since Campbell vanished, Miller’s print shop has become a headquarters for his search effort. What she initially envisioned as a campaign of “find Hassani” T-Shirts, missing persons posters and fundraisers has morphed into a larger search. She’s been assisted by Courtney Tascoe-Burris, 23, the daughter of Oakland attorney John Burris, who is working as an advisor to Ross and Campbell.

“Even if Hasanni is no longer with us, it doesn’t mean he doesn’t deserve to come back for a proper burial,” said Tascoe-Burris, who Miller says she met at a vigil for Campbell.

Tascoe-Burris may try to organize searches in Oakland parks as well. “We think that everywhere needs to be searched,” she said.

As of Friday evening it was unclear whether the Oakland Police Department or Alameda County Sheriff’s Department will participate in the lake dive; officials could not be reached for comment. The Fremont Police Department will not participate, according to Lieutenant Mark Devine. “This is an Oakland case,” said Devine, declining further comment.

“I’m just trying to find this boy,” said Miller, who hopes to start a nonprofit group to combat youth violence.

Miller believes this missing child case is an example of a culture that has lost its ability to care for children. “For them to be losing their lives out here, whether they’re kidnapped, whether they’re murdered, whether they’re beaten to death, it’s a tragedy,” said Miller.

Sherri-Lyn Miller, owner of the All In One Stop print shop, talks on the phone with a volunteer for Saturday's search for five-year-old Hassani Campbell.

Keep Hasanni Campbell probe going strong
Friday, September 4, 2009
<snipped>
If ever there were a police investigation worthy of special attention and treatment, it's the unexplained disappearance of 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell.

The Fremont boy, who has cerebral palsy and wears braces on his legs, has been missing for nearly a month, and investigators aren't buying the explanation provided by foster parents Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell.

Now, acting Police Chief Howard Jordan admits his department simply doesn't have the resources to keep shining as bright an investigative spotlight on the case.

That's an earnest assessment by a chief facing an endless stream of felony crimes - including murder - that require attention.

But despite the backlog of unsolved homicide cases and more deaths every week, authorities need to find a way to keep a full-time investigator on Hasanni's case. On Thursday, officials in Alameda County and San Francisco added to the reward money, bringing the pot to $60,000 for information leading to finding the boy.

In addition, the department's 22 homicide investigators were called in to help with tasks from surveillance to interviews with possible witnesses, Jordan said.

"We can't devote the amount of resources to this case that we had, but it doesn't mean we're not going to continue investigating this. It's just not going to be as many people."

In the event new information surfaces about the fate or whereabouts of the boy, another team of investigators - and other resources - will be assembled, Jordan said.

My hope is the department will do more than that in this case.

In the meantime, Oakland's acting police chief believes the involvement of federal authorities and other law enforcement agencies means the case will remain a high priority, he added.

If there is one thing that everyone agrees on, from the detectives looking for clues to the foster father who says he was with him shortly before he disappeared, Hasanni Campbell did not simply vanish into thin air.

No clues in search for missing Fremont boy
Organizers say Saturday effort leaves them with renewed hope

A massive volunteer search effort in Fremont on Saturday for Hasanni Campbell did not turn up any clues in the disappearance of the 5-year-old who went missing Aug. 10.

But it did give the organizers and the 124 volunteers who covered numerous areas in Fremont renewed hope that the Fremont boy is alive.

"It gave us hope that we're looking for a live, breathing, walking child," organizer Sherri Miller said.

Her co-organizer was Courtney Tascoe-Burris, daughter of civil rights attorney John Burris, who has served as a legal adviser to Campbell's foster parents.

Volunteers from the San Jose Search and Rescue Team, Newark Community Emergency Response Team, Oakland organizations and others began at Lake Elizabeth in Fremont at 9 a.m. They split into 11 search teams to scour the lake, the Dumbarton Quarry, Alameda Creek, the Alvarado Niles District and other areas around Fremont.

In the meantime, the Fremont school where Hasanni was enrolled, Leitch Elementary, has a psychologist on hand in case students need to talk about their concerns, but no one has sought his service, according to Nicole Steward, spokeswoman for the Fremont Unified School District.

The search ended at 3:30 p.m.

Miller said they will start searching in Oakland, where his foster father said the boy disappeared while in an unattended car in the Rockridge district.

Teams set out to search for Hasanni in Fremont
Sunday, September 6, 2009
<snipped>
They found a wheelbarrow. They found a suspiciously soft section of earth. And they found an old bag of marijuana.

But the 124 volunteers who swept through Fremont's 450-acre Central Park and explored Lake Elizabeth on Saturday did not find Hasanni Campbell, the 5-year-old Fremont boy who was last seen in early August.

"No news is good news," said Sherri-Lyn Miller, a San Leandro print-shop owner who organized the search and draped everyone in bright yellow "Hasanni Campbell Search Team" T-shirts.

Not finding him meant he could still be alive, she said.

Among the volunteers were some 20 orange-vested search experts from the nonprofit group San Jose Search and Rescue who accompanied the civilians and also scanned the shoreline of the 83-acre lake in rubber Zodiac boats. Jeff Emanuel, a diver, spent hours paddling about the murky, 7-foot-deep lake inhabited by trout, catfish, carp and some turtles.

2nd Headline:
Dozens of volunteers
The volunteers who gave up their Saturday to search for the missing boy knew that finding him would be a long shot. The park was chosen not because of any tip or clue, but because it was located in the same town where Hasanni lived. Yet dozens felt compelled to join in.

"I wouldn't rest if something like that happened to my son," said Reginald Page of East Palo Alto, clutching the hand of his son, 4-year-old A'mmani, as they waited for instructions on how to proceed. An articulate boy with long eyelashes, A'mmani made the volunteers laugh when Miller asked what he would do if he found Hasanni.

"I'm gonna make a lot of money!" he sang out.

He'd heard about the $60,000 reward.

The Page family was assigned to Group 10, a dozen or so people that included Patricia Newell of Dublin and her 15-year-old daughter, Daizshia.

"I want to teach her empathy and sympathy for others," Newell said. "If it happened to me, I'd want people to help me find my child."

Group 10 was dispatched to a marshy section called Stivers Lagoon Nature Area that had a meandering creek with plenty of footbridges to peer under and tall reeds to push aside in search of anything suspicious: A big bag. Children's garments. A toy.

Shortly into the search, Agnes Maez noticed something strange. The retired office manager from Hayward had stepped on a section of earth that felt different from the rest of the creekside path.

3rd Headline:
Spongy ground
"The area's soft and spongy," she told her friend Dee Fairfax, a retired accounting supervisor. "It feels hollow under here."

A San Jose Search and Rescue volunteer hurried over. Many of the trained experts won't give out their names. But his orange vest read "Klopper." He tapped the area with his foot, then called for backup.

"Do you think this is normal or hollow?" he asked another searcher in an orange vest, "O'Malley." After inspection, O'Malley said he thought it was probably normal.

"I'm going to say it's normal too," Klopper said.

4th Headline:
'Incredible' turnout

Miller, the organizer, said she was thrilled with the turnout - more than twice the number she expected.

"It's incredible!" she said, adding that the search will now expand to Oakland.

Neither of Hasanni's foster parents participated in Saturday's search. Louis Ross has said his foster son, who has cerebral palsy and wears braces on his legs, was kidnapped outside a shoe store in Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood on Aug. 10. Police say they don't believe the story, but lack evidence to charge Ross or Jennifer Campbell, Hasanni's aunt and foster mother with a crime.

Hassani Campbell Search Organizers Holding Vigil
Sep 7, 2009 4:17 pm US/Pacific
<snipped>
Event organizers who led a civilian search in Fremont this weekend for missing 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell are holding a vigil for him in Oakland Monday evening.

More than 100 civilian volunteers, including the San Jose Search and Rescue Team and the Newark Community Emergency Response Team, searched Lake Elizabeth Central Park in Fremont, according to event organizer Sherri-Lyn Miller.

The case is now being treated as a homicide instead of a missing person case, so the civilian searchers said they were relieved not to find Hasanni's body at Lake Elizabeth.

"We didn't find Hasanni here and that is good news for us," Miller said. "Now we can go to Oakland and focus on the area where it was reported he disappeared."

Miller added that the search party's main goal was to eliminate Lake Elizabeth as a site where Hasanni could be. She said there will be a vigil for Hasanni every Monday night until he is found, starting Monday night.

The vigils will be held at 6:30 p.m. at College Avenue Presbyterian Church, located at 5951 College Ave. in Oakland's Rockridge area.

On Monday night, about two dozen people gathered for a prayer vigil in honor of missing Fremont five-year-old Hassani Campbell at the College Avenue Presbyterian Church.

It has now been four weeks since the five-year old was reported missing from the Rockridge neighborhood in oakland.

Hasanni's foster father Louis Ross and foster mother Jennifer Campbell attended the service.

This past Saturday, more than 100 civilian volunteers, including the San Jose Search and Rescue Team and the Newark Community Emergency Response Team, searched Lake Elizabeth Central Park in Fremont, according to event organizer Sherri-Lyn Miller.

Thanks so much, Angel, for bringing these pictures here. I spent the better part of last night reading this entire thread. Now after seeing the pictures of all the people out there searching, it just infuriates me how killers/murderers go to extreme just to protect themselves, with not one care about those risking their lives looking while the guilty person could put an end to this. It's maddening. Just think of all the expense, the danger, the fact that LE is taken away from other areas, it's just so disgusting.

The Death Penalty is too good for these culprits, but certainly fitting. :behindbar California needs to rethink their stand.

Another search for Hasanni Campbell planned for Sunday
Posted: 09/09/2009 05:27:30 PM PDT
<snipped>
Organizers are planning another search for 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell, the disabled Fremont boy who was reported missing a month ago.

Sherri Miller, who has been at the helm of the search effort from the start, said she has 150 people signed up to search the Rockridge neighborhood, Lake Temescal, Lake Merritt and various neighborhoods leading to the Berkeley Marina on Sunday.

"We plan to go door-to-door in Rockridge and then search for him in a two-mile radius," said Miller, owner of All in One Stop print shop in San Leandro. Miller has donated thousands of fliers and T-shirts with Hasanni's picture on them since he was reported missing Aug. 10 by his foster father, Louis Ross.

Miller said volunteers for Sunday should meet at noon at the College Avenue Presbyterian Church, 5951 College Ave., in Oakland.

In addition of donations of food for the volunteers, Miller said she needs 10,000 fliers by Saturday and is asking print shops to donate them.

"We need money or the big printing companies to step up and help," she said. To help, call Miller at 510-276-9090.

Miller said she also is trying to set up a fundraising event at James Leitch Elementary School in Fremont, where Hasanni is registered for the first grade, on his sixth birthday, Sept. 24.

The boy's younger sister will not be returning to the couple and remains in protective custody while the police department's homicide investigation is ongoing. The case switched from a missing-person case to a homicide case late last month. Police subsequently arrested Ross and Campbell, 30, but Alameda County prosecutors refused to file criminal charges, and the two were released from jail.

Volunteers plan to scour across Oakland this weekend to search for a 5-year-old disabled boy who has been missing for a month.
Organizer Sherri-Lyn Miller says dozens are expected to help in the search on Sunday for Hasanni Campbell.

Hasanni was reported missing on Aug. 10 by his foster father, Louis Ross.

Ross said he briefly left the boy outside his car in the parking lot of a shoe store where his fiancee and Hasanni's foster mother, Jennifer Campbell, works.

Ross said when he returned the boy, who has cerebral palsy, was gone.

No signs of boy found in Lake Elizabeth: Search galvanizes community but reveals no clues
September 5, 2009 – 8:00 pm
<snipped>
Hassani Campbell’s 16-year-old aunt, Trinity Campbell, attended the search, but the boy’s foster parents, Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell, were not present. The Oakland Police Department arrested the couple on August 28 on suspicion of murder, but the Alameda County District Attorney’s office declined to press charges, citing insufficient evidence.

Oakland Attorney John Burris, who has acted as a legal advisor to the couple, says officers abused their power by arresting them without probable cause.

His former wife, Tascoe-Burris, and her daughter Courtney, a paralegal who works for John Burris, helped launch the search for Campbell because the boy may still be alive, Tascoe-Burris said, adding that the five-year-old still deserves a chance of being found.

Tascoe-Burris, a doctor who runs an Oakland wellness center in conjunction with her religious work, said her interest in finding Campbell has nothing to do with her ex-husband’s role in the case. The two often work on the same community issues simply because they both have an interest in social justice, she said. “John and I just happen to have portfolios of work that serve the good of the community, and that serve a parallel course,” said Tascoe-Burris.

This child is not alive. He was deceased prior to the alleged Last Seen. Death by homicide, parental involvement, lies, cover up. It is unfortunate LE could not gather enough evidence to keep Louis Ross in jail, as all points to LR being the perp. I stand by the astrological testimonies discussed in my posts #1, 8, 55 of this thread.

Another Search for Hassani Campbell
Posted: Sunday, 13 September 2009 8:58AM
<snipped>
Another massive search party is being assembled to check around Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood for a 5-year-old Hassani Campbell, reported missing more than a month ago, and organizers say there is hope he will be found alive.

About 150 people, made up of regular citizens from all over the East Bay was led by Shari Miller, a printing business owner from San Lorenzo.

"Right now the best move is the volunteers coming out and keep looking for this little boy," she said. "We need to assist the officials, the family, the community in any way we can to bring this little boy home."

It was August 10th when Louis Ross reported Hassani missing while Ross was dropping off his foster daughter with his fiance in Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood. The boy was reportedly left in the car, and Ross says when he returned a few minutes later, the boy was gone.

Police are certain that this is a homicide case and arrested Ross and his fiance, Jennifer Campbell, two weeks ago. They had to let them go, though, when the DA said he didn't have enough evidence to file charges.

Miller says her job is to separate herself from the investigation, and focus on the little boy with cerebral palsy and leg braces.

UPDATED: Missing 5-Year-Old's Clothes Possibly Unearthed In Oakland
Posted: 2:23 pm PDT September 13, 2009
Updated: 6:26 pm PDT September 13, 2009
<snipped>
About one o'clock Sunday afternoon, volunteers searching a hillside near the end of Chabot Road in Oakland found at least one item of clothing, which they and Oakland police say appears to be similar to one Hasanni was wearing before he disappeared.

“We were walking and we saw some clothes and we picked it up and it was a small sweatshirt," said one volunteer who asked that we not use her full name.

Police say the volunteers searchers found a small gray sweatshirt-- described as weather-worn and partially buried in the dry, soft dirt at the end of the street.

"It's covered with a lot of dirt. There's grass on it. It's ripped in places,” said Oakland police Sgt. Bautista. “We don't really want to handle it, because if there is any evidence, we don't want to contaminate it."

Five-year-old Hasanni Campbell was reported to be wearing a gray sweatshirt and gray pants when he disappeared over a month ago.

Searchers say they found two other items close by, including a red sock and a piece of a gray blanket.

The volunteers called Oakland police officers to the scene-- a sloping hill just beneath the access road connecting Tunnel Road and Highway 24.

As volunteers prayed, Alameda County sheriff's department k-9 units combed the hill for related items.

Investigators say it's too soon to tell whether the sweatshirt is Hasanni's.

"We don't wanna give anybody any false hope or things of that nature,” said Sgt. Bautista. “Right now , we're just gonna follow our standard protocol and secure the scene and have the technicians, evidence technicians recover the item. And at some point, we'll determine whether it was his or not."

Marc Klaas of the Klaas Kids Foundation says the search for Hasanni has been hampered by questions about whether his foster father, Louis Ross, is telling the truth about the boy's disappearance outside a Rockridge shoe store a month ago.

"If he's not telling the truth, then we have no idea where the little boy is,” said Klaas. “If he is telling the truth, then that almost means somebody picked the little boy up in a car and drove him out very, very quickly."

The woman who found the sweatshirt said this quiet cul-de-sac simply seemed like a logical place to search for signs of the missing boy.

"I knew it was a desolate area and it's not that far from where the kid supposedly went missing,” the volunteer, who didn’t want us to use her name, said. “And I thought, well, surely someone's looked up here because there's all of this space."

Jennifer Campbell-- the boy's foster mother-- declined to talk to KTVU earlier Sunday about the search for Hasanni

The Oakland police department is now examining a grey sweatshirt that may be connected with the search for five-year old Hasanni Campbell.

Two volunteers say they found the child-sized clothing at the end of Chabot Road near the Caldecott Tunnel. The discovery came at about 1:00 p.m. Sunday. The volunteers were part of a larger group searching for Hasanni who disappeared more than a month ago from behind a shoe store in Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood.

The child was last seen wearing a grey sweatshirt and grey pants.

Oakland police crime scene investigators are now conducting tests on the sweatshirt. Police and members of the Alameda County Search and Rescue squad have now taped off the area and are conducting a more thorough search.

Stay tuned to KRON 4 and KRON4.com for the latest on this developing story.

Volunteers searching for a missing 5-year-old Fremont youngster have found clothes similar to those Hassani Campbell was wearing on an Oakland street. Volunteer searchers found a grey sweatshirt, red sock, and other children's clothes, apparently at the end of Chabot Road, which is a dead end. The search party assembled this morning to check around Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood for Campbell, reported missing more than a month ago, and organizers say there is hope he will be found alive.

A gray sweatshirt found Sunday in the Oakland Hills did not belong to missing 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell, the boy's foster father said.

"It wasn't the right brand, it wasn't the right shirt; it's not his," Louis Ross, 38, of Fremont, said in brief remarks to the media after viewing the items volunteers found Sunday afternoon on a search for the boy reported missing Aug. 10.

Ross was accompanied by his fiancee, Jennifer Campbell, 33, the boy's biological aunt. They declined to answer additional questions, and were quickly driven from the scene at the end of Chabot Road.

"It's tough on them," said attorney John Burris, who has been counseling the couple. "You want to know and you don't want to know. You don't want confirmation that he's dead. You want to hold out hope, like other families, that he's still alive."

The gray children's sweatshirt was found shortly after 50 people began searching that area Sunday, search organizer Sherri Miller said. The area is slightly more than a mile east from where Hasanni's foster father reported last seeing him.

Volunteers flagged down some police officers. In a preliminary search of the area, those officers found an adult sock and another piece of material nearby. About 30 feet away from the sweatshirt, police found some bones, but later discovered they were from a deer.

Alameda County sheriff's deputies brought out search dogs to further canvass the area, which is just north of Highway 24. The dogs did not find anything, officials said.

The area where the sweatshirt was found had not been searched before by volunteers, Miller said. Police said they had not searched there, either.

UPDATED: Foster parents say sweatshirt not Hasanni's
Sunday, September 13, 2009 | 6:38 PM
<snipped>
Volunteer search teams thought they had found some important clues Sunday in the case of missing Hasanni Campbell after they discovered a sweatshirt, sock and piece of a blanket on a hillside at the end of Chabot Road.

The items were found a little more than one mile from the spot where Hasanni Campbell was reported missing 34 days ago. Police taped the area off as a potential crime scene.

Hasanni's foster parents arrived at the scene around 5:30 p.m. and quickly determined that the articles of clothing did not belong to the missing 5-year-old. Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell said with confidence that the gray sweatshirt was the wrong brand. They said the sock and part of a blanket found were also not his.

Around 1 p.m. Oakland crime scene technicians were called in and the sweatshirt was photographed and tagged. On the day Hasanni went missing his foster fathers said he was wearing a gray sweatshirt and pants, and that is why the items got so much attention Sunday.

The sheriff's canine was given a whiff of the clothing and it took off in search of a scent, but it did not find one. Alameda County search and rescue dogs are also helping cover a nearby hillside by Highway 24 and Highway 13.

Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell were arrested on suspicion of murder, but they were released because investigators could not find enough evidence to charge them. On Sunday their attorney John Burris explained that their relationship with the police and media has become very guarded since their release, which is why the couple made very few comments Sunday.

A team of volunteers looking for little Hasanni Campbell found something that caused police to turn the end of a dirt road into a crime scene Sunday.

Sherri Miller, a virtual one-woman-crusade to find Hasanni, organized the search of the Rockridge neighborhood, Lake Temescal and Lake Merritt. She told reporters someone found a gray child's sweatshirt at the end of a dirt road late Sunday afternoon.

The volunteer called police who were close to the area at the time. Police immediately put up yellow tape. There is no way to know if the find is indeed connected to the missing child's case, but Hasanni was reportedly wearing a gray sweatshirt when he disappeared.

Campbell and Ross came to the scene late Sunday and police showed them the clothing, which also included a sock. Ross told reporters that the sweatshirt did not match the one his foster son was wearing. He said it was the wrong brand.

Police called off their official searches long ago, but Miller, a San Leandro business owner, took matters into her own hands and organized searches of her own. And she may have found the biggest piece of evidence yet in the case.

The clothing will now be tested for DNA.

Miller has printed thousands of fliers at her shop. She's also helped get together a Web site dedicated to the child: www.findhasanni.com.

She said even if people suspect the parents had something to do with his disappearance, "There's still a 5-year-old child who needs to be found."

Volunteer search teams found a gray sweat shirt they thought might have belonged to Hasanni Campbell, a 5-year-old boy who has been missing for more than a month.

But Hasanni's foster father, Louis Ross told reporters late Sunday that the clothing did not belong to the missing boy.

Hasanni Campbell was reported missing on Aug. 10 by Ross. Ross said the boy was wearing a gray sweat shirt at the time.

Oakland police Sgt. Arturo Bautista says the shirt was found buried at the end of a road in the Oakland hills Sunday.

Police were searching the area.

Found clothing not Hasanni's, foster dad says
Sunday, September 13, 2009
<snipped>
(09-13) 18:25 PDT OAKLAND -- Volunteers searching for missing Fremont 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell reported finding children's clothing in Oakland's Rockridge District today, less than a mile from where his foster father had reported him missing last month, authorities said.

But Hasanni's foster parents, Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell, said the gray sweatshirt and a sock that were found at about 1:15 p.m. at the end of Chabot Road did not belong to the boy.

"It's not his," Ross told reporters while flanked by Campbell and the couple's legal adviser, Oakland attorney John Burris. "We buy his clothes. We know what he wears, so that was not his shirt. The sock was not his, either."

The discovery drew Oakland police crime scene investigators and Alameda County search dogs to the scene, which has been cordoned off by yellow tape.

Hasanni was reportedly wearing a gray sweatshirt when Ross reported him missing Aug. 10.

Before the couple's arrival at the scene, searchers girded for the possibility that the clothing belonged to Hasanni.

"We have no idea at this point if it's even connected to Hasanni," said Sherri-Lyn Miller, a San Leandro print-shop owner who has been organizing regular searches for the boy.

"Because it is similar, it's gray, it does appear to be small, we want to make sure - this is pretty close to the area where he was missing - we want to make sure that we analyze it and confirm," Oakland police Sgt. Arturo Bautista told reporters.

Foster Father: Sweat Shirt Is Not Hassani's
Posted: Sunday, 13 September 2009 5:46PM
<snipped>
Clothing found on Sunday that is similar to that worn by a missing 5-year-old boy with cerebral palsy does not belong to young Hassani Campbell, the boy's foster father said.

Volunteers searching for the youngster on Sunday found a small gray sweat shirt, a red sock, and clothes at the end of Chabot Road. They immediately contacted police who sent cadaver dogs to the dead end road.

The boy's foster father, Louis Ross, and his foster mother, Jennifer Campbell, arrived at the scene to examine the clothing. Ross told CBS-5 the sweat shirt was a different brand and did not belong to Hassani.

Every Sunday, hundreds of volunteers led by led by Sherri-Lyn Miller, who owns a printing business in San Lorenzo.

Police believe the boy was murdered and arrested the couple on homicide charges two weeks ago, only to release them for lack of evidence.

Ross and Campbell have maintained their innocence and say they are cooperating with police.

Miller said she would continue to organize vigils and searches until the case was closed.

The clothing was found at the end of Chabot Road above the Rockridge neighborhood where Hasanni was last seen. Authorities have declared the area a crime scene.

Kudos, and a check, for DHS
September 14, 2009
<snipped>
The state of Arkansas has received more than $800,000 for exceeding targets to find more adoptive homes for foster children, particularly some harder-to-place children. It outperformed a number of larger states, according to federal figures.

Children in foster care are more apt to be abused, neglected, raped, killed or go missing (just Google Hassani Campbell) than they are in their real homes. Now the states are offering to pay fosters even more money if they'll allow the child to stay in the home until age 21! See, that's the difference here. Fosters kick the kids out on their 18th birthday but their real parents would NEVER EVER EVER do that! They send them to college, when they can, help them move out on their own or let them stay home until such time as they can afford and emotionally handle living on their own.

Everyone wants to think that CPS is this benevolent, altruistic organization, saving all the abused and neglected children in the country but that is NOT what is going on here. I have personally talked with countless parents who tell me that on every visitation they have with their children that they're bruised, have stitches, severe diaper rashes, broken bones, are filthy, wearing clothes either way too small or way too big, and eat like they're starving to death. Some tell the parents that they've been sexually abused by someone in the foster home and when they report it to their case worker, they tell them to mind their own business.

Police To Analyze Clothes In Hasanni Campbell Case
Sep 14, 2009 9:05 pm US/Pacific
<snipped>
Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason said Monday that clothing found by volunteers searching for missing 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell doesn't appear to belong to him.

However, Thomason said investigators will do a lab analysis to try to determine if there is any connection between the clothing and Hasanni, who suffers from cerebral palsy and was reported missing from the parking lot of the Shuz of Rockridge shoe store in the 6000 block of College Ave. about 4:15 p.m. on Aug. 10 by his stepfather, Louis Ross.

Volunteers found a gray sweatshirt and a sock at the end of Chabot Road in Oakland about 1:10 p.m. on Sunday. The area is about a mile east from the spot where Ross reported last seeing him.

Thomason said the reason that investigators don't think the clothing belonged to Hasanni is that it appears to be the wrong size and Ross said it wasn't the same clothing that the boy wore.

Thomason said there haven't been any new tips in the case in recent weeks and police do not condone the private searches such as the one conducted on Sunday.

She said there also will be another candlelight vigil for Hasanni at 6:30 p.m. Monday outside the College Avenue Presbyterian Church at 5951 College Ave., which is across the street from the Shuz of Rockridge store. There's been a vigil in the area every Monday night since Hasanni disappeared.

The family of Hasanni Campbell privately commemorated his sixth birthday Thursday, while volunteers are organizing another search for the missing Fremont boy on Saturday.

Hasanni's grandmother, Pamela Clark, said the family "is just in seclusion" Thursday.

Sherri-Lyn Miller, a San Leandro print shop owner who has been organizing regular searches for Hasanni, had originally planned to hold an event for the boy, but it was called off out of respect to the family.

However, Miller said that organizers will be searching Coyote Hills Regional Park in Fremont starting at 8 a.m. Saturday.

The search of that area was originally scheduled for last week, but was canceled due to permit issues, Miller said.

Family Privately Commemorates Hasanni Campbell's Birthday, Volunteers Plan Search
9/24/2009 5:19:00 PM

Though it’s been over a month since Hasanni Campbell was reported missing, volunteers searching for him are still determined to find him.

Search organizer Sherri Miller tells KRON 4’s Haaziq Madyun they will not give up until he is found.

Hasanni would have turned 6-years-old on Thursday

Miller notes that Ross and Campbell have not participated in two previous searches for the boy and that she has not spoken with them since they were released from jail. She adds that frustration is growing regarding their lack of support, “It would certainly help if they were coming out and supporting our searches.”

Oakland police have no new tips in the case, and police spokesman Jeff Thomason says police do not condone the private searches.

Miller invites those wishing to join the search to call (510) 276-9090 or send an e-mail to findhasannigmail.com.

Volunteers will also be at the Rockridge Street Festival on Sunday, wearing T-shirts and passing out flyers with the goal of "getting his picture back out there," Miller said.

Event to help finance search for missing Fremont boy
Volunteers looking for Hasanni Campbell plan a Nov. 1 fundraiser.

It's been nearly two months since Hasanni Campbell, a 5-year-old Fremont boy with cerebral palsy, was reported missing from behind a shoe store in Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood.

And in those two months, the attention the case is getting has lessened significantly. The once-weekly vigils on Monday nights have turned into once-a-month gatherings at the request of his foster parents. An organized search for the boy hasn't been done since the last weekend in September.

To keep his name in the news and raise money for search efforts, Miller and Courtney Tascoe-Burris are planning a fundraising dinner from 2 to 8 p.m. Nov. 1 at Garre Vineyard & Winery, 7986 Tesla Road, Livermore.

Invited guests include Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums, Fremont Mayor Bob Wasserman, Oakland and Fremont City Council members, and others.

Miller hopes people will buy $30 tickets for the event, which will include a dinner of either roast beef, chicken or a vegetarian entree, garlic mashed potatoes, vegetables and a glass of wine.

There also will be entertainment from Shot Gunn Haze, the Rabe Ups, and a couple of the original members of Santana, Miller said. Marco Valley and Kelly Lynn Flynn, soloist musicians, will play during dinner, Miller said.

"We don't want him to be forgotten," Miller said. "He's still out there somewhere, and we need to find him and bring him home. It will be two months on Saturday that he's been gone. (Children) don't just vanish like that."

Volunteers trying to find a 5-year-old Fremont boy who's been missing for more than three months are hoping a $75,000 reward will bring some fresh leads to the case.

Authorities and volunteers have now raised the reward, up from the $60,000 announced in September.

Drummond: Why the deafening silence from missing boy's foster parents?
Posted: 11/15/2009 12:01:00 AM PST
Updated: 11/16/2009 10:23:20 AM PST
<snipped>
THERE ARE a number of things about the disappearance of Hasanni Campbell that do not compute.

"We are going to do what we need to do as parents," Ross said, regardless of what the police do. "... As long as I have breath in my body we will search for Hasanni."

Yet the truth is, Ross and Campbell haven't done any of the things that parents of missing kids typically do to advocate for their children and keep their names and faces in the public eye.

Rather than staying in close touch with the police, and trying to keep up the pressure to find their child, Ross and Campbell have invoked their right not to talk to the police. That means investigators can no longer interview the foster parents unless they come to the police of their own accord — something they have not done since their arrest.

Neither have the parents made any effort to reach out to reporters at this newspaper — or any other media that I am aware of.

The only thing that has kept Hasanni's disappearance from falling completely off the radar are volunteers who have organized searches, held vigils and fund-raisers. The foster parents haven't even been going to those.

Your 5-year-old has been missing for three months now and you go totally silent? No public comments? Not even an appeal for Hasanni's return on what would have been the child's sixth birthday?

When is the last time you saw either one of these two tearfully calling for Hasanni's return?

"I see activity, but it's all coming from other people," says Marc Klaas who offered the services of his missing children foundation Klaaskids to help search for Hassani. "The normal advocate in this situation would be the family, but here, there is deafening silence

He says Ross never took him up on his offer of help.

Campbell, who was pregnant when Hasanni disappeared, is scheduled to have a baby any day now.

"We had a handful of people, but that was it," said Sherri Miller, who has organized searches, vigils and at least one fundraiser for the missing Fremont boy.

"The more frustrating it gets, the harder we have to work," Miller said. "He's out there somewhere and that's the bottom line. He's out there and he deserves to be found. Hopefully with the city's new police chief and new district attorney, maybe they'll get some answers. Maybe we'll figure it out. I don't know what it's going to take, but we haven't found him yet, so we just have to keep going until we do."

However, 10 members of the news media were present, Miller said.

Miller said Ross and Jennifer Campbell weren't at the vigil on Tuesday and haven't been involved in the search effort recently.

This week’s vigil at College Avenue Presbyterian Church in Oakland drew just a half-dozen people, but Miller said she would not stop handing out flyers or searching until police determine what happened to the boy.

Sherri-Lyn Miller isn't certain but it might have been her own life-changing experience that has led her to help others who are suffering greatly.

Miller has been a force behind the organization of vigils, searches and fundraisers for Hasanni Campbell, the disabled Fremont boy who went missing in August. Hasanni remains missing.

Miller has owned a San Leandro print shop for the past two years but recently switched gears, cofounding, with two other women, The Citizens for the Lost Society, a nonprofit organization that provides resources for missing children and adults.

"Cases that have struck me are missing people of color who are underrepresented in the media. It's one of those things where you see the problem and wonder how you can get involved. It's painful to watch. This presented an opportunity to really try to give anything I could to keep Hasanni in the news."

She gave T-shirts to Ross and Campbell, and stood stoically by them as reporters asked them questions about the disappearance. The couple was subsequently arrested on suspicion of murder but criminal charges were not filed and they were released. Campbell, pregnant at the time, has since delivered her baby. The couple has repeatedly not returned calls for comment and has not been available for interviews for several months.

Volunteers renew search for Hasanni Campbell
Sunday, December 20, 2009
<snipped>

A group of 50 volunteers scoured the East Bay on Saturday, looking for signs of Hasanni Campbell, the 6-year-old boy with cerebral palsy who was last seen outside a shoe store in Oakland's Rockridge District on Aug. 10.

All they got, according to two volunteers, was a cold rebuke from Louis Ross, Hasanni's foster parent who was arrested in connection with the case but later released. :shakehead:

Vanessa Pereda and her mother, Kari Johnson, said they were taping posters in the Fremont neighborhood where Ross lives with his fiancee, Jennifer Campbell, who was also arrested and released.

Pereda and Johnson said that as they taped a poster to a parking sign directly outside the couple's home, Ross appeared in the upstairs window and shouted, "You guys need to stay out of my yard." :furious:

Pereda, who has volunteered for four search parties to find Hasanni, said she was caught off- guard by Ross' behavior.

"You'd think he'd be more helpful and supportive," she said. "We're trying to find Hasanni.":(

"He may think people have forgotten," she said, "but we haven't." :clap:

No one answered the door at Ross and Campbell's home after the alleged incident, and attorney John Burris, who has been advising Ross and Campbell, did not return a phone call.

The alleged incident only highlighted the tension that has grown between Hasanni's foster parents, who were the last people to see the boy alive, and the cadre of volunteers and well-wishers who are anxious to find the boy.

Miller said she befriended Jennifer Campbell in the days after Hasanni's disappearance, and even gave Campbell a ride to pick up Ross when he was released from jail.

"We're out here looking for their child; we'd like if they were here with us," Miller said.

She said she hasn't spoken to either parent since she dropped them off from jail.

Months later, still no trace of Hasanni Campbell
Volunteers come up empty Saturday in the latest search for a missing East Bay boy.

"We all know what we don't want to find," search coordinator Wayne Slack Sr. said. "We want to find him. We want to find out what happened to Hasanni."

Then, Slack added, "Let's be realistic, I don't think we're looking for a live child now."

The volunteers began at 8 a.m. searching sections of Highway 84 near DeVry University and near the home in Coyote Hills where Hasanni, whose 6th birthday was in September, lived with his foster parents and sister. The search expanded to about 50 members throughout the day and branched out to Berkeley, San Leandro and Hayward.

The group also distributed 10,000 fliers, some of them at the Walmart store on Osgood Road, in Fremont, the last place the boy had been confirmed seen, according to police.

"I'm trying to help in a search that I feel no one cares about," Coelho said. "I think it's terrible and sad that a child could be lost like this and nobody cares. It was in the news, then it just disappeared. I just wanted to do something to help because I feel so bad for this child."

Shortly after Hasanni went missing, police briefly held the foster parents on suspicion of murder, but they were released after criminal charges were not filed. They have been unavailable for comment ever since.

"They were involved in everything we did up until their arrest," Miller said of the foster parents' search for Hasanni. "We just wish they would cooperate, but they don't so we have to do what we do to find him."

Saturday was the last search of the year for Hasanni. A vigil is planned for Jan. 10 at College Avenue United Presbyterian Church, in Oakland. Miller said the group would continue to search for Hasanni until he is found.

Barbara Arnold, of Berkeley, searches for Hasanni Campbell, the 6-year-old Fremont boy who was reported missing more than four months ago, near Highway 84 in Fremont, Calif., on Saturday, Dec. 19, 2009. Volunteers searched in varous locations in Fremont, including near the the family home and the Wal-Mart, where authorities last confirmed the boy was seen.

She said Saturday's volunteers plan to go to four or five locations, including the Fremont neighborhood where Hasanni lived with his foster family and the Walmart where the boy was last seen in public.

"We're not necessarily going through the trenches digging and looking for him," Miller said. "We want to get back out there and tell people he's still missing. He's been forgotten for whatever reason, but he has a biological family that misses him and wants him to come home."

The boy's foster parents have stopped attending events and are no longer speaking to the media, Miller said, but his grandmother and a different aunt are involved in all of the efforts.

"In whatever capacity, he deserves to be found," Miller said. "That's what's so hard for me."

Missing boy's foster parents skip town, stop talking to reporters

Hassani Campbell's foster parents have disappeared themselves, and no one knows exactly where they are. The Oakland Tribune reports the pair have ended their relationship, and may have moved out of the Bay Area.

Campbell's foster father, Louis Ross, is reportedly living in Arizona.

Today, their house in Fremont is vacant and up for sale.

That's not stopping a dedicated group of volunteers, who say they'll be organizing another vigil for Campbell later this month.

Searchers Scour New Area for Hassani
Updated 6:06 PM PST, Tue, Feb 2, 2010

Sherri-Lynn Miller tells NBC Bay Area a well known psychic told her that Hassani Campbell is somewhere in Mt. Diablo Park.

The word from a psychic was enough for a group of dedicated people, most who have never met the little boy, to stop what they were doing and hit the road late Tuesday afternoon.

Oakland police say they are not taking part in the search. Miller and her search party are only armed with flashlights Tuesday night and they say they won't let darkness stop them.

Miller said they will search an area off Marsh Creek road. She said the psychic gave her a very specific location and surroundings where the boy's body would be found. Miller said the pyschic called them out of the blue with the tip.

The news media just learned Monday that the foster parents, Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell, recently moved out of the Bay Area.

Editorial: Keep going with Hassani Campbell's investigation
Posted: 02/05/2010 12:01:00 AM PST
<snipped>
WE NOW approach six months since 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell vanished without a trace. The Fremont boy has not been seen since Aug. 8.

Yet there are a number of things about the case that have never added up. No one has reported seeing the child in the busy commercial area. Police dogs taken to the scene found no trace of Hasanni's scent anywhere near the parking lot.

Then, there has been the highly unusual behavior of the foster parents. They quickly disappeared from public view. They have made no public pleas in months for the child's safe return. They have invoked their right not to talk to the police and have made no efforts to keep Hasanni's disappearance in the media.

They have not helped the volunteers — complete strangers who have kept the search for the child alive. In fact, volunteers say that when they tried to post missing fliers near the foster parents' Fremont home, Ross ordered them to get out.

Now, it appears that the foster parents have packed up and left their Fremont house. Ross is reportedly in Arizona. The whereabouts of Campbell and the couple's newborn daughter are unknown.

That Hasanni's foster parents have moved away does not mean they are guilty of a crime. But their overall behavior has been, in our view, a bizarre way of demonstrating concern for their missing foster child.

It's pretty clear that whatever police uncover will be without the help of Hasanni's foster parents. After his arrest, a defiant Ross told reporters, "As long as I have breath in my body, we will search for Hasanni."

Last we heard, Ross was still breathing. Why has he skipped town rather than help the police and volunteers find his son? It is imperative that police keep the Hasanni investigation on the front burner until this child is found.

Foster Parents Of Missing Child Leave Bay Area
Posted: 10:01 pm PST February 1, 2010
Updated: 10:48 pm PST February 1, 2010
<snipped>
There was a new twist Monday night in the case of missing Fremont five-year- old Hasanni Campbell who disappeared last August. His foster parents -- who were once suspects in the case -- have moved away from the Bay Area.

KTVU has also learned that there has been new police activity at their former home in Fremont.

“Don't let him be a picture on a milk carton,” said Ross in an interview last August not long after the boy disappeared. Almost six months after that interview took place, the Fremont house Ross rented with Jennifer Campbell stood vacant and for sale.

A neighbor who didn't want to be identified said the couple packed up with their new two-month-old baby two weeks ago. “There was a lot of stuff being thrown away,” said the neighbor. “There was a couple of people who came to help with the move.”

At about the same time, another neighbor said she saw police come around and seize one of the couple's cars. “I saw a cop and they had a tow truck,” said neighbor Joey Ann. “They towed a BMW, I think. It was a white car.”

Monday night, Oakland police did not confirm any new turns in the case.

Monday night, KTVU spoke by phone with Hasanni's maternal grandmother. She said she did not know where the couple is, or if they're still together.

A rally is planned outside Oakland Police headquarters on February 10th to show Hasanni Campbell has not been forgotten.

Hasanni's parents break up; cut off contact

Our media partner, The Oakland Tribune, is reporting that Hasanni's foster parents, Jennifer Campbell and Louis Ross, broke up soon after the birth of their daughter in November.

Ross reportedly has moved to Arizona.

Ross and Campbell were arrested on murder charges about two weeks after Hasanni's disappearance, but released when prosecutors said they did not have enough evidence to file charges.

Rally outside Oakland Police next week to mark six months since Hasanni Campbell went missing

Updated: 02/02/2010 06:34:55 AM PST

Organizers are gearing up for a rally Feb. 10 at the Oakland Police Department to mark six months since Hasanni Campbell went missing.

The boy was reported missing Aug. 10, 2009 from the rear driveway of Shuz of Rockridge in Oakland, where his foster father, Louis Ross, 38, has said he left the boy alone while he went to the front of the store to alert Jennifer Campbell, the boy's 30-year-old foster mother and aunt, that he had arrived to drop off Hasanni's 1-year-old sister. The girl has been removed from the couple, who have not been available for comment for several months.

Sherri-Lyn Miller, who has organized searches for the 6-year-old boy for six months, said the couple has split up following the birth of their baby girl in late November.

Ross has reportedly moved to Arizona. Pamela Clarke, Jennifer Campbell's mother, said she does not know where her daughter is or if she remains living in the Fremont house the couple once shared.[/U]

Organizers will hold the rally at 6 p.m. Feb. 10 at the Police Department, 455 7th Street in Oakland. Community and church members will be there and anyone who wants to participate can come to the Citizens for the Lost offices at 15976 E. 14th St. in San Leandro between noon and 6 p.m. Saturday to make signs, pick up fliers and learn more about the event, Miller said.

"This is not to bash the police, we hope that they will be involved and come out and speak to the crowd and let the public know that this little boy is not forgotten," Miller said. Police have said the case is still under investigation.

*On 2/10/10 @ 2pm....Will you all join me in lighting a candle for Hasanni? TIA

Organizers and volunteers helping to search for a missing East Bay boy are now having trouble finding his foster parents. Campbell and Ross split up after their daughter was born in November, search organizer Sherri-Lyn Miller said.

But the Fremont home is now vacant and for sale, according to people who live in the neighborhood. A neighbor told KTVU that she saw the couple packing up with their newborn baby girl two weeks ago and that someone was helping them clean up and move out. Campbell's mother doesn't even know where her daughter is now.

Another neighbor said she saw police activity at the house and watched as cops seized the couple's car.

Strange Tip Leads to New Search for Hasanni
Updated 5:10 PM PST, Wed, Feb 3, 2010
<snipped>
About a dozen people spent a second day searching Mount Diablo State Park for a missing child following a tip from a psychic. Sherri-Lynn Miller tells NBC Bay Area a well known psychic called her out of the blue Tuesday and said she knew where they could find the little boy's body.

That tip was enough to get a small, but dedicated group of people, most who have never met the little boy, to stop what they were doing and hit the road late Tuesday afternoon. They searched into the night armed only with flashlights.

After finding nothing, they stopped the search around 10 p.m. and returned to duty Wednesday afternoon with the psychic in tow.

She said the Mt. Diablo area was too hilly compared to her vision, so the group packed up and decided to search Garin Regional Park in Hayward instead. That is where they searched late Wednesday afternoon. None of the searches turned up any new clues on the child's whereabouts.

Volunteers Search For Hasanni Campbell In Clayton, Plan Vigil
Posted: 11:46 am PST February 3, 2010
Updated: 4:00 pm PST February 3, 2010
<snipped>
A group of volunteers has traveled to Clayton Wednesday afternoon to follow up on a psychic's tip on the whereabouts of Hasanni Campbell, a 6-year-old who went missing in Oakland nearly six months ago, a search organizer said.

San Leandro business owner Sherri-Lyn Miller has been organizing searches, vigils and fundraisers for Hasanni. About a dozen volunteers are conducting another search this afternoon based on a tip from Sam Herbert, a Berkeley-based psychic, Miller said.

The group searched an area in the 13000 block of Marsh Creek Road in Clayton between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Wednesday, she said.

After they were arrested, Ross and Campbell stopped attending events and are no longer speaking with the media, according to Miller, who has interacted with other family members since then.

In early January, the foster parents moved out of the Fremont home where Hasanni lived with them, said Ritu Khurana, the real estate agent who owns the home.

"Right now we're very confident in the police," Miller said. "They're keeping everything close to the vest but I know they're on top of it."

**GPS helps police capture, clear suspects**
Sunday, January 24, 2010
<snipped>
As more and more Bay Area convicts are tracked with GPS anklets, the new stream of information is cropping up in high-profile crime investigations.

In many cases, information from Global Positioning Systems has ruled out suspects. That was the case in the disappearance of 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell, whose foster father reported him missing in August in Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood.

Parole agents ran a simple search before telling police that none of the parolee sex offenders they were tracking had been near the area at the time.

The search also ruled out the same pool of sex offenders in a series of attacks near UC Berkeley in which a man tried to touch women after lifting their skirts.

Both cases remain unsolved, and Hasanni is still missing.

Where did Hasanni's foster parents go?
February 02 2010 at 10:41 AM
<snipped>
KTVU reports that the home rented by Louis Ross, 38, and Jennifer Campbell, 33, is now empty and up for sale. Ross is reportedly in Arizona. The couple allegedly split up after the birth of their daughter in November.

The latest developments come six months after Hasanni's disappearance. On the afternoon of Aug. 10, Hasanni, who has cerebral palsy and wears leg braces, vanished from the BMW that Ross parked outside a Rockridge shoe store where Jennifer Campbell works, Ross said.

Soon after, Ross and Campbell pleaded for the boy's return. When the investigation focused on the parents, Ross took a polygraph test. Campbell, who was pregnant at the time, did not take the exam because she worried it might hurt her fetus. The couple was arrested. But they were released because prosecutors did not have enough evidence to file charges. Ross and Campbell have maintained their innocence.

The pair did not join a search in September. During another search, Ross scolded two volunteers as they posted a flyer outside his home. The couple is not in contact with volunteers, according to Sherri Miller, founder of Citizens for the Lost, which has organized efforts to find Hasanni. She told KTVU:

"If you care anything about that child, you'd be doing everything in your power; you'd be on every tv station you could, trying to find this child unless you know there's no hope of finding him."

Rally set 6 months after Oakland boy disappeared
Wednesday, February 3, 2010

After initially attending vigils and publicizing the search for Hasanni, Ross and Campbell are no longer working with volunteers, said Sherri-Lyn Miller, who is organizing a Feb. 10 rally for the boy in front of Oakland police headquarters. Ross and Campbell split up after the birth of their daughter in November and have moved out of the Fremont home they shared, Miller said.

It's unclear where Ross and Campbell are living now. Ross could not be reached for comment Wednesday and a call placed to Campbell's mother was not immediately returned.

Miller said she's stunned that Campbell, who is Hasanni's biological aunt, is not working more closely with volunteers.

"(Campbell) had a pass while she was pregnant, but an innocent person would help look for, not run from him," she said.

Another volunteer, Celina Carleton, said she hopes next week's rally will inspire more people to join the search for the little boy. "We haven't given up hope," Carleton said. "We are going to find Hasanni."

Rally for missing Fremont boy draws crowd to Oakland police headquarters
Posted: 02/10/2010 11:27:00 AM PST
Updated: 02/11/2010 06:59:57 AM PST
<snipped>
About 20 people attended a candlelight vigil in front of the Oakland Police Department on Wednesday night to mark six months since the disappearance of Hasanni Campbell.
The Fremont boy, now 6, was reported missing Aug. 10 from the rear driveway of Shuz, a shoe store in the Rockridge neighborhood. The boy's foster father, Louis Ross, 38, told police he left the boy alone while he went to the front of the store to alert the boy's foster mother and aunt, Jennifer Campbell, 30, that he had arrived to drop off Hasanni's 1-year-old sister. The girl is now in protective custody.

Wednesday night's rally was organized by The Citizens for the Lost, a group cofounded by Sherri-Lyn Miller and Courtney Tascoe-Burris. The group has held fundraisers, vigils and searches since the boy went missing.

"It's really enlightening to see you all here," said Tascoe-Burris, daughter of attorney John Burris, who was advising the foster parents for a short time. "All of us are here for a common purpose, because of a little boy lost."

Police have said they are investigating Hasanni's disappearance as a homicide. In late August, police arrested Ross and Campbell on suspicion of murder. The Alameda County District Attorney's Office later declined to file criminal charges, and the two were released from jail.

Neither has been available for comment for several months. The couple has split up, and Ross has moved out of state, authorities said. Campbell's whereabouts are unknown, said her mother, Pamela Clark, 62. Clark was at the vigil briefly Wednesday night.
Police said the case remains under investigation.

"We have never stopped investigating it. With the level of evidence, witness statements and canvasses, there's a massive level of information that's coming in on this investigation," said Oakland police spokesman Officer Jeff Thomason. "We're still pursuing this case, and we're not going to stop pursuing it until there's closure."

Concerned citizens marking the six-month anniversary of the disappearance of six-year-old Hasanni Campbell pray outside Oakland police headquarters, Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2010 in Oakland, Calif. Hasanni disappeared from the Rockridge shopping district in August 2009, and subsequent efforts to find the child have proved fruitless.

Supporters remain hopeful six months after boy’s disappearance
February 11, 2010 – 10:44 am
<snipped>
It’s been six months since Hasanni Campbell disappeared from outside a Rockridge shoe store, but the supporters who gathered outside the downtown Oakland police station Wednesday night continue to hope for his safe return.

About a dozen community members attended the vigil along with a half-dozen reporters, a far cry from the 100-150 people that organizers expected. The supporters carried signs highlighting the $75,000 reward being offered. They carried candles, and many wore clothes bearing the child’s name and likeness.

“Our efforts will not stop. We are committed to finding Hasanni,” said Courtney Tascoe-Burris, who helped organize the vigil. “We believe somebody saw something. … We are imploring you to please come forward, please come tell the detectives at this station what you may know.”

This month news media have reported that Ross and Campbell have since moved out of their Fremont home and their whereabouts are unknown.

But despite the months of disappointment, supporters held fast to the idea that Hasanni is still alive at Wednesday’s vigil. “It’s only been six months. We don’t consider six months a long time. The case of Jaycee Dugard tells us that we should not give up our search. We should not give up our hope,” said Dr. Ramona Tascoe, the mother of Tascoe-Burris and ex-wife of attorney John Burris, who had at one point been acting as an advisor to the child’s foster parents. “Hasanni may very well still be alive so we are calling on the public to have a renewed strength, a renewed commitment.”

Among those gathered to support Hasanni was Tena Oakley, a Newark woman whose 32-year-old daughter disappeared three years ago. “Because my daughter is an adult and she’s in Michigan, there is no searching going on for her,” said Oakley. “I strongly believe that if you help people you’ll end up getting help too. … I’m hoping that if we find Hasanni maybe my daughter will show up, or we’ll be able to find — something.”

Toward the end of the rally Oakland Police Chief Anthony Batts came out to address the small crowd of supporters and news media. He said that the department is considering the case an active homicide investigation and he gets frequent updates on the case.

“Although we consider it that way and we still have to follow up those leads, we still ask that you look out for young Hasanni Campbell just in case that is not the case,” said Batts.

Batts said the police department is pursuing leads with the District Attorney’s office, but he would not say whether Campbell’s foster parents are the subject of that investigation.

“We wanted to show public support for the detectives, the Oakland Police Department’s effort, but then also to encourage them and challenge them to do more,” said organizer Tascoe-Burris. “If attention was going to be brought to this story, it was going to take a community effort, it was going to require a grassroots movement.”

When asked what more the police should be doing, Tascoe-Burris paused.

“Can I toss that one?” her mother chimed in. Tascoe claimed that several people told police they saw a boy matching Campbell’s description walking along College Avenue the day he disappeared, but that the police reports contradict these witnesses accounts. She said that the police have not answered why the case became a homicide investigation or why the foster parents were arrested and then released.

“When that story went out, there was nothing that doubled back and said, ‘Well we were wrong. We were premature,’” said Tascoe. “We were left to believe as the public that the story was true but we’re not going to do anything about it.”

“We need to have answers for why we’re not going to do anything about it if you think these people killed this child,” she said. “We frankly don’t buy the story that they killed him until and unless we see proof that there’s reason to believe that—and even then, as you know, innocent until proven guilty.”

At the end of the rally, the supporters began to sing, “We shall find Hasanni soon,” to the tune of “We Shall Overcome.” “Oh, deep in our hearts, we do believe, that we shall find Hasanni soon,” they sang, their heads bowed, almost in prayer, as the TV news cameras pulled back to capture the tableau.

Supporters gather for a candle-light vigil six months after Hasanni Campbell disappeared.

Vigil Marks Six Months Since Hasanni Campbell Disappeared
Posted: 10:58 pm PST February 10, 2010

A candlelight vigil on Wednesday night marked the six months that have passed since Hasanni Campbell was reported missing by his foster father.

About two dozen people gathered to sing songs about their determination to find Hasanni. Though the group was small, it was passionate. "There's a lot of unanswered questions," said Celina Carleton. "There's definitely a lot of frustration."

Angry but resolute, volunteers who participated in the search for the little boy urged anyone with information to contact police.

Courtney Tascoe-Burris helped organize the vigil. "This is ground zero for the investigation," said Tascoe-Burris. "This is where we're going to be able to solve this case and bring Hasanni back home."

Hasanni's foster parents have moved and did not attend the vigil.

But organizers warmly greeted Hasanni's grandmother, Pamela Clark when she arrived. "I think it's great to have people out here supporting my missing grandson," Clark said.

Oakland's new police chief met with Hasanni's grandmother and the volunteers.

"There are some leads we're following up on," said Chief Anthony Batts. "We've had conversations with the DA. and the DA has us looking at other things. We will continue to further that investigation,"

While the chief declined to say whether the couple are still considered suspects, a source has told KTVU the two remain the focus of the police investigation. Others said Ross and Campbell have ended their relationship.

They said Ross has moved to Arizona and Campbell to Los Angeles with the couple's newborn daughter.

Ramona Tascoe asked police to make the Hasanni Campbell case a top priority. "There is no child that should be left behind, particularly a foster child," said Tascoe.

"Somebody knows something. Somebody saw something," said Courtney Tascoe-Burris. Volunteers vow to continue their search for Hasanni Campbell until they find an answer.

Angel, when I saw this thread pop up to the top, especially since they began new searches, I was so hoping they'd found him. :frown: I'm so disappointed. I probably need a break from reading about these cases. It's all so depressing.

Thanks so much for the news, even if I don't like it.

I just don't get how this boy could be so well hidden. :shakehead:

Fundraiser Saturday will go to continue search for Hasanni Campbell

A small group of people who are still organizing searches and vigils for missing Hasanni Campbell are holding a rummage sale Saturday in Rockridge.

Sherri-Lyn Miller with the Citizens for the Lost Society, or CFLS, said the sale will include, art work, antiques, televisions, clothes, children's toys and household wares. It will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the College Avenue Presbyterian Church, 5951 College Ave., in Oakland.

Many searches in Oakland, Berkeley and Fremont have been held, as have monthly vigils on the 10th of each month since the boy went missing. This month, Miller said they wanted to do something different — the rummage sale — to hopefully raise money to continue the searches. The group also will hold a barbecue and release 243 balloons — one for each day the boy has been missing — at 4:15 p.m. Any one who wants to sign a balloon can do so between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday, Miller said.

Also, if you want to donate items to the sale, you must take them to the church before 9 a.m. Saturday. Miller said Hasanni's grandmother will be at the sale along with many community supporters and longtime volunteers of the Hasanni Campbell Search Team and CFLS, which recently qualified as a nonprofit organization. It is not likely Ross or Campbell will be there. The pair were jailed on suspicion of murder for a few days after the boy's disappearance, but were released when Alameda County prosecutors declined to file charges. Campbell and Ross have not returned repeated requests for comment over the last five months. They are believed to have left the area.

Chief Batts: Hasanni Campbell Case Still A Priority
Posted: 8:26 pm PDT March 25, 2010

At a monthly hearing to discuss the Oakland Police Department’s battle to reduce crime in the troubled city, Chief Anthony Batts said the investigation into the disappearance of Hasanni Campbell more than seven months ago "continues to be a priority" for the department.

Batts said, "There are some leads we're following up on and I hope they lead to a conclusion soon."

Deputy Chief Jeffrey Israel said the department recently partnered with the Alameda County sheriff's search and rescue team to try to find the missing Fremont boy -- who has cerebral palsy -- but was unable to locate him.

Israel declined to say what area was searched. Previously there were several other unsuccessful searches for Hasanni. Some were conducted by law enforcement officials and some were conducted by volunteers.

Holding Out Hope for Hasanni
Rummage sale held to help continue searches for missing Fremont boy
Updated 2:00 PM PDT, Sat, Apr 10, 2010

It’s been eight months since he disappeared and even though few clues have surfaced in the case of Hasanni Campbell, there’s still hope he will be found.

Members of the group Citizens for the Lost Society have never given up the search for Hasanni. The small group gathered at an Oakland church Saturday to hold a rummage sale to help raise money to continue the searches for the boy, who would be 6 now. The group formed as a direct result of Hasanni's disappearance but aims to raise awareness and financial support for all missing kids and adults.

The sale runs all day at the College Avenue Presbyterian Church in the city’s Rockridge neighborhood. It’s in the same area where Hasanni was last seen. The supporters will also release 243 balloons – one for each day Hasanni has been missing.

The same group has held monthly vigils since the boy vanished but this month, they wanted to do more to help continue the search.

Dozens of volunteer's renewed the search for Hassani Campbell, the 5-year-old disabled Fremont boy vanished eight months ago on Saturday. Citizens for the Lost Society released 243 balloons to mark each of the days since Hassani disappeared on August 10, 2009.

Hassani's foster father told police he left him outside the Oakland shoe store where his wife worked on College Avenue.

Search for Hassani Campbell Continues

Ross told investigators that he left Hasanni inside his car to run an errand only to return and find the boy gone. That touched off a massive search for the boy. San Leandro resident Sherry Lynn Miller volunteered to help then and is still out there today.

She has since formed a non-profit group to help streamline search efforts. This weekend, Miller and several volunteers hosted a fund-raiser at the Presbyterian church on College Avenue, complete with pictures of Hasanni tacked up everywhere. "People don't remember until we do something big to let them know,'Hey, this child is still missing,'" Miller said.

Investigators never really bought the foster father's story, and Ross, and the boy's foster mother, Jennifer Campbell, were briefly jailed in the case, but were let go due to a lack of evidence. Both have since moved out of the area.

Police officer Jeff Thomason says despite that the case is very active. He says that investigator is currently re-interviewing witnesses and going over old clues. Hopefully, in the near future, says Thomason, the department will be able to bring closure to this case.
