My fear: Kingsley and Wells connect to Blanding. A 20 minute or less drive has you to 295, and 95-North to Georgia and on up the coast, donwn to Deland (near Satsuma) and far south Florida. The other way on Blanding takes you to very rural areas-Middleburg, Green Cove, Palatka (Satsuma), or over to the Panhandle and easy access to states bordering Florida. So in the last 24 hours, she could be very far away.

"I have read on this site for a long time, but I used to only have AOL...I tried to sign up a couple of different times but couldn't because of the AOL address. Anyway, I am not sure of when I actually joined, but it was sometime this past summer, when Victoria Stafford was missing, but I am a member of another online sleuthing community, also. I live probably a million or more muffins away from Canada, but this was the only place I could actually find information other than what I found on the internet myself. But that's how I ended up here again, to finally join. So there may actually be a lot of people who just read and never post, but they feel like they belong because they have read everybody's posts for so long. That's how I felt, like I knew everybody."

Anothermom, I know just how you feel! I joined last fall after lurking here for about 5 years for the JBR case and only joined when there were CA docs posted in the Parking Lot that I was dying to read lol. It was a headache, because my bf has the only email addy allotted by our internet provider, and I had to actually pay $10.00 bucks for my own. But it was worth it.
It is true how you feel like you "know" people on here.

I had a great life by the all American standard, so I thought. Then one day at the age of 23, I was playing golf and thought I injured my shoulder, I was wrong. I found a lump in my collar bone and went to a doctor who misdiagnosed me. I immediately got a second opinion and was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma stage II. I underwent chemotherapy and radiation and almost died on several occasions due to complications from the medical treatments.

'Give me my baby back,' pleads mother of missing Orange Park girl Somer Renee Thompson

Orange Park Police Chief Jim Boivin told the Times-Union his agency notified the Sheriff's Office of the abduction attempt, but the investigating officer failed to report it to Grove Park Elementary. He said that should have been done.

"It just slipped her mind," Boivin said.

Boivin said his officers have kept an eye out for any suspicious blue Nissan SUVs matching the description of one used in the abduction attempt.

Grove Park is in the middle of a residential neighborhood and many students make the trek to school on foot daily. Somer Thompson, who is a second-grader there, disappeared after she was separated from her sister while walking home Monday afternoon.

As parents waited to drop their children off, investigators at the Clay County Sheriff's Office stopped everyone in the vicinity of the school, taking down names, making notes and showing them a picture of Somer.

Previous Incident Near Somer's Home Being Looked at Again
Created: 10/20/2009 6:01:34 PM

<snipped>
An attempted abduction that happened near Somer Thompson's home 10 days before she disappeared is being re-investigated.

The Oct. 10 incident happened around 12:30 p.m. Police say a blue, four-door sedan, possibly a Nissan, pulled up. A woman and two men inside tried to lure a 5-year-old into the car.

The girl's mother, April Boothroyd, says they told her daughter they were supposed to pick her up and take her home. Her daughter told them, "no."

from the five pm team coverage on Jax I gleaned this:

Somer was released from school at 2:50 by herself

she walked by herself for a half mile to the intersection of Gano where she met up with her two sibblings.

at this intersection... she was only four blocks from her home now.. and this is where the teasing took place and she walked off.

also noted was the fact that in between where she walked off and her home was the location... right smack in the middle of that last short bit of her walk home.....where the other attempted abduction took place ten days ago at the same time of day.

newscasters also said that on the six pm news (I am waiting on the video to be posted) they will have the 911 call from the first abduction.

another thing... on the five pm coverage they showed a car that "looks like" the car that the witness saw in the attempted abduction. It is a four dour sedan. blue playdough color.. it is not an suv

Sam Thompson lives in Graham.

He got the news about his missing daughter Monday evening.

"My whole family is just waiting with baited breath to hear one word that they've got Somer, and that she's one her way home. But until then we can't breathe."

AMW: Somer Renee Thompson
Search Teams Scour Florida For Signs Of Somer
<snipped>
Somer left school at 2:50 p.m. that Monday, and was walking home from school with her twin brother, her 10-year-old sister, and some friends when she ran ahead of the group, toward her home.

Somer's siblings arrived home safely at about 3:05 p.m. without her and no one has seen her since.

Their mother's friend, Sean Patton, was at the house and asked the children where Somer was and they said she walked off.

Sean and the kids searched for Somer for an hour. when Somer's mother called, Sean told her Somer had not made it home.

She left work immediately and stopped at the Sheriff's Office on the way home to report her daughter missing.

The search included canine units, mounted police, dive teams and helicopters with heat-sensing technology.

Several police agencies, the FBI and local volunteers began searching the wooded areas in near where Somer was last seen.

Authorities have interviewed 57 registered sex offenders living in a three-mile radius of where the girl disappeared and plan to interview an additional 37 offenders in an expanded 5-mile radius.

Mahla said in addition to the search operation, officers had followed up on 80 of the 150 leads people have called into the sheriff's office.

10-20-2009, 07:21 PM
So...if we go with the assumption that the previous kidnapping attempt is related to Somer's disappearance, we can speculate on the following (notice I said speculate...meaning we can discuss the pros/cons of these):

1. The kidnappers are "locals" meaning they live nearby the Orange Park area (since they returned to the SAME area rather than choosing another school).

2. They are comfortable with the area despite a failed kidnapping attempt earlier (you'd have to be REALLY comfortable returning to the same area again...did they know that nothing had been done after the first attempt?)

Anything else?

"The Indigos are unable to conform to dysfunctional situations at home, work, or school. They don’t have the ability to dissociate from their feelings and pretend like everything’s okay….unless they are medicated or sedated."
http://www.indigo-healing.net/What_is_Indigo.html

ETA I don't feel that this guy is a suspect, I'm leaning more towards the stranger abduction. I do think it's really overt to try it again so close to where they tried it before, but the way the peeps in the Nissan feel, they got away with it. After all, it wasn't even reported to the schools.

he is talking about auras. I have a great friend (and actually an open heart nurse with me) who is a reikki healer and she tells me all about it... not that I buy it hook line and sinker but I HAVE seen it do some amazing things...

He is talking about children with that color of aura having problems with adhd etc.. . it is just the lingo of the practice.. it wasn't creepy to me at all... but of course that is moo and meant with websleuth love.

Reading into his background, this guy is a hodgkin's survivor. Guess what, I am too! I can associate with being near death and reaching out to everything and anything to prevent it from coming back. I am not ready to sell the farm on SP yet... I just am not feeling that hinky meter ticking about him. Of course anything the rest of you all dig up can change that in a heartbeat.

At the moment I am really thinking this was related to the other attempted abduction... same time of the day.... same area... it is just too coincidental for me..

I am quite familiar with those who believe in "indigo" children. It was introduced to me as a plausible reason for my son's Asperger's Syndrome and has been discussed at length on many AS sites.

The general lo-down is that it was created by one person who believes kids with ADD, ADHD and AS symptoms are "special beings" and then that person created the term "indigo", etc. It is not recognized by the medical professionals that I've talked with regarding AS. Personally, I think the whole thing was created to make a way to get the public to treat people in a more positive way. At least, I hope that's why this movement began.

Whatever it is, it is a goofy way of looking at people on the autism spectrum and those with ADD and ADHD. Goofy, hogwash, and nothing that is threatening, from what I've seen.

10-20-2009, 07:28 PM
Turquoise: Relates to the immune system. Sensitive, compassionate, healer, therapist.

BLU AURA COLOR: Relates to the throat, thyroid. Cool, calm, and collected. Caring, loving, love to help others, sensitive, intuitive.
Soft blue: Peacefulness, clarity and communication; truthful; intuitive
Bright royal blue: Clairvoyant; highly spiritual nature; generous; on the right path; new opportunities are coming

Dark or muddy blue: Fear of the future; fear of self-expression; fear of facing or speaking the truth
INDIGO AURA COLOR: Relates to the third eye, visual and pituitary gland. Intuitive, sensitive, deep feeling.

some aura color examples and site for background reading on reiki... (but we don't even know this is for sure the guy yet... but background nonetheless is always good at websleuths right guys?)

[bolded by me]

Good question - the story surrounding this failed kidnapping makes them sound desperate. If the kidnappers thought their attempt wasn't taken seriously, missed, or went unreported, why wouldn't they try again? imo the person who let this report 'slip her mind' is negligent. :furious:

At a candlelight vigil Diena Thompson thanked the crowd for its support and help in assisting in the search for her 7-year old daughter, Somer Thompson.

The vigil began at 7:30 p.m., and Somer's grandmother, Debbie Bowling, was there.

Four agencies with helicopters also joined the search today. Detectives have expanded their search, and in that radius there are 87 sex offenders and each is being checked out.

Police Plan to Search All Night for Somer
Created: 10/19/2009 8:34:10 PM
Updated: 10/20/2009 7:37:11 PM
<snipped>
Officials will continue to search through the night in the air on the ground, in the water and using horses to find 7-year-old Somer Thompson who disappeared on her way home from school Monday afternoon.

Clay County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Dan Mahla said at a news conference this evening that 200 leads had been called in as of 5:45 p.m. But right now, police have no person of interest and no physical evidence in the case.

"We suspect foul play," Mahla said, adding that right now Somer is considered an endangered child because she did not come home last night, and because of her age, size and the low temperatures last night.

The only thing I got out of the news special was that Sommer's sister is ten years old and her brother is a twin (we knew that)..

The candle light vigil and the mother's plea were not easy to watch. My gut and heart are equally ripped out of my body and stepped on... I cannot imagine what this mother is going thru.

I also add that I have not seen a "normal reaction" to a child abduction in a while (ie Haleigh, Caylee, Robert, etc) and to see it is devestating and at the same time really goes to show you what those who are lying look like... there is NO COMPARISON.

Perhaps his relationship with Somer's mother is not very amicable and they want to prevent any possible problems between them. Their emotions are on high right now and to have the father come down might not be the best thing. Finger pointing and blaming each other for Somer's disappearance etc...

Perhaps they don't want a confrontation between the father and the boyfriend?

Maybe the mother asked LE to keep him away because he hasn't been active in their lives?

I'm sure there are other possible scenarios but those were the top three off the top of my head.

It depends on the state:

http://www.latchkey-kids.com/latchkey-kids-age-limits.htm (http://www.latchkey-kids.com/latchkey-kids-age-limits.htm)

There is no minimum age in Florida.

http://circuit8.org/family/FAQ.html

At what age is it legal to leave a child home alone? There is no minimum age established by law. Whether a child can be left alone depends on a number of factors, including: the child's maturity; the safety of the environment they are in; how long they are left alone; whether or not they can get in touch with their parent or caregiver; and whether or not they know what to do in case of an emergency. Leaving a child alone can constitute neglect on the part of a parent or caregiver if the child could be in any danger of harm.

That's ok BeyondBelief, I'll recap for you :)

-His name is Sean/Shawn (I've seen both spellings) Patton and he's a "family friend" (being called that by LE and Somers mom) who lives with the family.

-The mother works, and Mr. Patton is home each day when the children (Somer, her twin brother, and her sister) get home from school.

-Yesterday, supposedly the sister and the brother come home around 3:05-3:10pm and he asks where Somer is. They tell them she ran ahead of them and he tells them to go out and look for her.

-Someone found a link to a company called Indigo Healing that he may own. http://indigo-healing.net/

-Someone else ran his information and found he is not a registered sex offender, and doesn't have any sort of criminal background (other than minor traffic things).

Abduction Attempted 10 Days Ago
Police Say 5-Year-Old Girl Nearly Abducted Near Search For Missing 7-Year-Old
POSTED: Tuesday, October 20, 2009
UPDATED: 6:23 pm EDT October 20, 2009
<snipped>
The Orange Park Police Department report said a 5-year-old girl on a bicycle was riding about one block from where Somer was last seen when she was approached by a vehicle driven by a Hispanic woman with two Hispanic men as passengers.

According to the report, the three approached the 5-year-old in the 1200 block of Ambor Circle Drive and told her to get into the vehicle. When she screamed and rode her bike in the opposite direction, the car sped off in an unknown direction.

Investigators say three people in a blue Nissan Sentra similar to the one pictured above tried to abduct a 5-year-old girl 10 days ago.

hey BB!
In my opinion no as to him being suspicious. That is only my opinion though.

This child was released from school and walked a half mile until she met up with her ten year old sister and her seven year old twin brother... someone got teased and she walked off... her home was four blocks from this point where she was last seen.

in between where she was last seen and where she lived (four blocks away) another abduction of a five year old was attempted ten days ago at the same time of the day! A witness saved this child, saw the car, noted a woman and two men in it, and took the child to her home. news4jax said they would be releasing the 911 tape but I have not seen it out yet.

Back to suspicion of SP: it has been reported that when the two children arrived home sans Somer, he asked where she was at and when they said she walked off he sent them back out to get her... and they looked for an hour. I think some wonder why he sent the children out alone but the more I think about it, he didn't have a reason to have hinky thoughts at this point and these same children walk to and from school on the same route every day... to top it off... that attempted abduction that happened ten days earlier two blocks from their house... was never reported to the school so that parents could be aware of it/take extra precautions.

The mother called home at four pm.. to see how her children were doing and when she heard that somer was missing she left work right away and went to LE post haste and the investigation was started.

IT IS REAL and before my friend told him of his eyewitness account, I dismissed it. The public NEEDS TO BE AWARE as I am afraid it is escalating!!

I hope you and/or your friend have gone to LE and told them what he saw.

they do go to the same school. They are not in the same class... she met up with her sibblings at the 1/2 mile mark. They walk a LONG way to get to their school (almost a mile I believe)

It is an awfully long way for kids that age, IMO. I really don't suspect the "family friend" at this point, only because, it would have been a very small window of time between the time Somer came home and the time the other kids arrived.

However......it does irritate me to no end that he was home sitting on his duff while these kids were made to walk home from school. He couldn't have taken a 1/2 hour out of his day to pick them up? WTH?

I see very young kids walking to & from school every day. I understand that some (most?) parents work, but if you can't drop them off and pick them up, FIND SOMEONE WHO CAN!!! It shouldn't be so difficult to ask others for help when it comes to the safety of your babies.

It was over 30 years ago, Hoppy.

One thing he said is that he remembers kids hovering in a corner, wide-eyed and scared. He said he has nightmares because at the time, he didn't do anything. He has since become a Christian, married and raised a family and if you met him, you'd never know he ever lived like that. I told him that God forgives him.

Today, he is very outspoken about what is right and isn't afraid to speak up. When he heard some people were selling drugs in town, he went to their house and told them to cut it out! I wondered why he would step out like that at the time and now I know.

does Somer meet the criteria of an INDIGO child?????
needed DRUGS???

not sure what you're interpreting

on that site it even states, "Unfortunately, when they are medicated,the Indigos often lose their beautiful sensitivity, Divine gifts, and spiritual warrior energy."

there's nothing creepy about indigo healing, any more than any other spiritual quest in life

I thought I read that some female was there inside the house when the kids came home from school and she asked where Somer was at. This female called the mom at work and the mom came home. Well whatever the story is, Im glad LE is going to search all night.

The only way he could fit the time line is if Somer arrived home first, the quickly did something to her or hid her, when the other 2 siblings came home he immediately sent them out to search and in that hour time period they were away from the house, he could have disposed of her. That's the only way I can think of he would have fit in that timeline but still..that would have given him a very small window to work with.

I am quite familiar with those who believe in "indigo" children. It was introduced to me as a plausible reason for my son's Asperger's Syndrome and has been discussed at length on many AS sites.

The general lo-down is that it was created by one person who believes kids with ADD, ADHD and AS symptoms are "special beings" and then that person created the term "indigo", etc. It is not recognized by the medical professionals that I've talked with regarding AS. Personally, I think the whole thing was created to make a way to get the public to treat people in a more positive way. At least, I hope that's why this movement began.

Whatever it is, it is a goofy way of looking at people on the autism spectrum and those with ADD and ADHD. Goofy, hogwash, and nothing that is threatening, from what I've seen.

it's really not about kids with ADD or autism ...I think that belief came with an offshoot movement but I don't want to go completely off-topic here

not sure if I can post a link to a good info site here (if not, sorry mods - please delete for me)

Siblings returned home at 3:05 to home with SP at it.

SP asked where Somer was - siblings said she "ran off."

SP sent siblings out to look for Somer.

Mom called home at 4 p.m. to ask if the kids made it home OK.

SP reported that Somer had not.

Mom left work & notified police on the way home.

I'm unsure of where you have gotten your story.
The information here was reported at the 4 p.m. presser.

1450 school lets somer walk home

she catches up with her ten year old sister and her twin at the intersection where she walks another four blocks home (1/2 a mile to that point). She got teased and walked off ahead of them (this is the last sighting of her

kids get home at 1505 (iirc) and then SP (who is the boyfriend and lives in the home) asks where is somer... the kids tell him she walked off and he send them back out to go and find her. They look for an hour. It is not clear if he also went out to look... and really the media has never asked any questions in the pressers to clarify that further so at this point we just don't know what exactly happened there.

1600 mother calls home from work to check on the kids and is told somer is missing. She leaves work and notifies le right away and the investigation is started.

I actually just moved from this area. I use to take the back roads to avoid blanding traffic to go to the doc every week. It is not quite a mile from the school. the school is pretty close, however for a 7 yr old to be walking it with or with out other kids imo should not happen no matter where you live. What bothers me is this, I know how many people are on that road when school gets out. There are is atleast one maybe two crossing gaurds between the school and Debarry, not to mention the other kids and alot of cars from picks or parents walking with the kids. So I dont understand how with all this around how no one knows what happened to her. I hope and pray she is found safe and is home soon.:praying:

I'm not sure if this has been addressed as I just picked up on this tragic abduction of little Sommer. I immediately googled the area and sure enough highway 15 runs about a block and a half away from the school. This reminds me of how close highways were from Lindsey's McCleary location.

It seems to me that predator groups are just driving the highways picking up young girls for potential sex rings. The idea that a week or so before this abduction another attempt was made in the same area. The idea that a female was involved in that previous abduction attempt along with a couple of males (according to eye witness accounts) lends some credence, imo, that much of this abduction stuff in the US, along major throughways, is related to child sex rings and perhaps the FBI should seriously investigate that idea and look for some sort of common denominator relative to what appears to be some sort of child abduction along major throughfares frenzy (for lack of a better term).

When I googled the area where Sommer was abducted my first thought was to zoom out and see if there was a highway through the area, and close by. It didn't take me long to see highway 15 just a few blocks away.

She's beautiful.
I was just going to follow this one in the news, but the news reports all conflict.
Then I was just going to read the thread, but it made my fingers itchy, so here I am.
Let's find Somer.

(This is my way of asking for a really condensed update.)

As far as what I've heard, she is in second grade, possibly first, 7 y/o. Was walking home from school with at least two other kids at 2:45-2:50 pm. Walked ahead, got separated, and in a 15-20 minute span on time, disappeared. No solid suspects, no solid leads except for the little girl that was almost kidnapped a week and a half ago. Seeking a blue 4 door Nissan. Residential, residual traffic area.
Do I have the basics?

it IS so perplexing! And also changes things up a bit.. I wish I lived closer so I could help search. I sincerely thank ALL of you who are doing so from the bottom of my heart...

let me see if I can explain this right....if they are walking home from school on the left side of the road....after passing the first guard, but before the second guard is a big sports area where they have local baseball, etc....woods also...on the opposite side of the road....this is where the command ctr is now set up. I would imagine that area was vacant at the time, due to the fact that the kids were just getting out of school....I hope they checked it out good there...

Massive Search Continues For 7-Year-Old
POSTED: Tuesday, October 20, 2009
UPDATED: 10:13 pm EDT October 20, 2009
<snipped>
"We're hoping for the best, but we're working as if it is a crime scene," Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler said Tuesday morning. "Time is of the essence. Every moment that goes by is not in our favor. That's why the push is so hard."

Beseler said deputies were out all night using infrared cameras and dog teams to search the wooded areas. Beseler said when deputies finished interviewing the 58 registered sex offenders within three miles of where Somer disappeared; they expanded the search to a five-mile radius.

She's beautiful.
I was just going to follow this one in the news, but the news reports all conflict.
Then I was just going to read the thread, but it made my fingers itchy, so here I am.
Let's find Somer.

(This is my way of asking for a really condensed update.)

As far as what I've heard, she is in second grade, possibly first, 7 y/o. Was walking home from school with at least two other kids at 2:45-2:50 pm. Walked ahead, got separated, and in a 15-20 minute span on time, disappeared. No solid suspects, no solid leads except for the little girl that was almost kidnapped a week and a half ago. Seeking a blue 4 door Nissan. Residential, residual traffic area.
Do I have the basics?
you got it NMK.. did you also get the part that SP (boyfriend who lives with the family) was at home after school with kids while mom was working and sent the other two sibs out to look for Somer (supposedly... it was kinda ifffy speak at the presser) when they came home and said she had "walked off" and they looked for about an hour... than mom called to check in (normal check in call) and upon finding out she was missing left work and went to le

I'm not sure if this has been addressed as I just picked up on this tragic abduction of little Sommer. I immediately googled the area and sure enough highway 15 runs about a block and a half away from the school. This reminds me of how close highways were from Lindsey's McCleary location.

It seems to me that predator groups are just driving the highways picking up young girls for potential sex rings. The idea that a week or so before this abduction another attempt was made in the same area. The idea that a female was involved in that previous abduction attempt along with a couple of males (according to eye witness accounts) lends some credence, imo, that much of this abduction stuff in the US, along major throughways, is related to child sex rings and perhaps the FBI should seriously investigate that idea and look for some sort of common denominator relative to what appears to be some sort of child abduction along major throughfares frenzy (for lack of a better term).

When I googled the area where Sommer was abducted my first thought was to zoom out and see if there was a highway through the area, and close by. It didn't take me long to see highway 15 just a few blocks away.that would be Highway 17, and then you have Blanding Blvd which is 21, and Wells rd, and Kingsley. This neighborhood is blocked in by these very busy roads.

I suppose they get by with it longer cause can't use a child as a sting operation.. like they do for drugs and prostitutes.. etcc.. but there should be someway for them to find these sex rings.. we go to the moon and send stuff up to moon just to crash into it and we can't protect our children better. can you imagine the prison they could build and run on that stupid money they use to go to the moon.. we will never be able to live there I just think it is stupid when the usa needs other things for the money.. like health care , schools .. crime protection.. grrrrr sorry for the rant..

I actually just moved from this area. I use to take the back roads to avoid blanding traffic to go to the doc every week. It is not quite a mile from the school. the school is pretty close, however for a 7 yr old to be walking it with or with out other kids imo should not happen no matter where you live. What bothers me is this, I know how many people are on that road when school gets out. There are is atleast one maybe two crossing gaurds between the school and Debarry, not to mention the other kids and alot of cars from picks or parents walking with the kids. So I dont understand how with all this around how no one knows what happened to her. I hope and pray she is found safe and is home soon.:praying:

I hope and pray she is also. Would most of the traffic be gone by the time the kids make it that far? I know schools here let out car riders before bus riders, in some age groups, depending on the school, or the other way around in other age groups. Not sure we have many walkers so I am unfamiliar with that. I live in the Country! But it is hard to imagine no one saw anything.

Well like the woman 10 days ago, seeing what was happening.

My google search of the elementary school seems to indicate that highway 15 is a few blocks from the school in question. Highways 17 seems to be across the bridge and not especially near highway 15 which is a few blocks from the abduction. Am I getting this wrong?

Here's a google printscreen of what I'm referring to:

http://www.websleuths.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=5720&stc=1&d=1256093223

I apologize if I'm way off base, but I'm not sure why they are searching for sex predators across the bridge, somewhat distant from the school, rather than closer to the school which is very close to highway 15, and a straight turn and quick drive to the school area.

Hate to go a bit O/T here - if that is the case - but on another missing girl case some time ago, someone posted a story (Dateline, 48 Hours, IDK) that focused on U.S. "hub" cities that were, basically, launching pads for child trafficking. IIRC, most of the kids that were abducted for this purpose were a bit older than Somer. Most were probably runaways and were, for the most part, untraceable.

The real problem here is the demand, not so much the supply. LE doesn't spend enough time and resources determining WHO the freaks abusing these children are, IMO. You really have to wonder why that is. Are they protecting people?

I so hope this little girl is found safe.

Somer Thompson - Missing from Florida

Clay County sheriff's deputies are searching for an Orange Park girl who they said has been missing since Monday afternoon.


Deputies said 7-year-old Somer Renee Thompson was last seen in the Grove Park neighborhood. They said the girl's mother called police and said her daughter never returned home from school.The girl is described as 3 feet 5 inches tall and 65 pounds with brown hair in a pony tail. She was last seen wearing a cranberry-colored jumpsuit with pink striped sleeves. She also had a black, pink and white colored backpack with a skull and hearts.

Deputies and detectives from every branch of the Clay County Sheriff's Office, approximately 100 personnel, are looking for Somer. Additional support is also being provided by the agencies surrounding Clay County, such as St. Johns and the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has also assigned a member to assist Clay County, along with staff from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

The Clay County Sheriff's Office has utilized reverse 911 as well as the school system's automated phone message system to get information about Somer to as many households as possible as quickly as possible.Deputies said the girl was last seen at 2:45 p.m. walking home from Grove Park Elementary School near West Gano Avenue and Debarry Avenue with her sister and friends but separated from them after an argument and ran toward her home.

Deputies said the girl's mother was outside in the neighborhood looking for the child when she flagged down a passing deputy and reported the incident.The family lives in the 1700 block of Horton Drive in Orange Park."We would ask that the public assist us in providing any information that anyone may have about this little girl's whereabouts," Beseler said. "Anyone that's in this vicinity, please be vigilant, be looking, search around the area and call us if you saw anything."Beseler said deputies are contacting the 53 sexual offenders who live in the area as part of their investigation. More than 100 deputies, police and SWAT members were searching for the girl overnight and into Tuesday morning.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911.

This is a great question! Since she ran ahead of the other kids, she may have taken another way home. Are there any shortcuts she may have taken?

This is the post I posted last night from the comments section of the following link-
This happened in Jacksonville, Fl

audreymaryjane
Having had my daughter be attempted to be taken right out of my arms eleven years ago in a Walgreen's parking lot in Atlantic Beach, Jax FL. Luckily I was strong enough to get away with my daughter who at the time was only a few weeks old. After reporting it to the police I was made aware of the under cover investigation going on in Jacksonville for child trafficking through the ports. Anywhere there are ports will always have an increase danger for child trafficking, because Jacksonville does have a large port we are at higher risk.

Nor are native-born Americans immune from slavers; many are stolen or enticed from the streets of their own cities and towns. Some sources, including the federal government, estimate in the hundreds of thousands the number of U.S. citizens primarily children at risk of being caught in slavery annually. Although these figures may be inflated, the precise number of slaves in the United States, whether trafficked in from other countries or enslaved from our own population, is simply not known. The simple truth is, were looking at a crime that lives in the shadows; its hard to count what you cant find. <snipped>

Kimster, I just read up on human trafficking too. It's unreal that this is such a huge, but under reported epidemic. She is so young though, I mean, she can't be walking the streets-do they have homes that these kids are warehoused in? This is so sick I don't really want to investigate this more.
Nite nite, kids
Maybe tomorrow we will have good news regarding Haleigh, Somer and Ghassane.

It was over 30 years ago, Hoppy.

One thing he said is that he remembers kids hovering in a corner, wide-eyed and scared. He said he has nightmares because at the time, he didn't do anything. He has since become a Christian, married and raised a family and if you met him, you'd never know he ever lived like that. I told him that God forgives him.

Today, he is very outspoken about what is right and isn't afraid to speak up. When he heard some people were selling drugs in town, he went to their house and told them to cut it out! I wondered why he would step out like that at the time and now I know.

I know that it was 30 years ago. It still needs to be reported to LE.

Graham man awaits return of missing daughter
Somer Thompson

Posted: Oct. 20 11:42 p.m.
Updated: Today at 12:13 a.m.

Graham, N.C. — A daylong search for a missing 7-year-old Florida girl who vanished on her way home from school Monday has produced more than 150 leads, but the child remained missing Tuesday and officials said they suspect foul play.

More than 100 Clay County, Fla., deputies, law enforcement officers from neighboring counties and the FBI scoured a residential Orange Park neighborhood looking for Somer Thompson.

"I can't describe how that feels. It feels like somebody just took the life out of you," said Sam Thompson, Somer's father.

Sam Thompson, an Iraq War veteran, lives in Graham, North Carolina. He is recuperating from an accident that left him in a wheelchair. [respectfully snipped}

A devastating accident and now Somers is missing..this family deserves a break...let's bring this beautiful child home! justice for Somers!

I think the mother and father and the boyfriend are all without suspision .The only thing we should be looking at is that someone did try to kidnap a child within a BLOCK of where she dissapearred ...This is the 700 pound elephant in the room ...This is the only thing we should be focusing on at this time ...!!! Can someone link the astrology chart that Tuba did,, that is pretty much the only real lead we have if the LE cant come up with anything

Two days of searching in Orange Park and there is still no sign of Somer Renee Thompson.

Somer's mom, Deana Thompson, pleaded for her daughter's safe return at a candelight vigil Tuesday night.

"If anybody has her, please let her go. Pray for her, that she comes home".

Investigators still aren't sure why Somer went missing.

A search is under way for another missing little girl in northeast Florida.

Second-grader Somer Renee Thompson did not return from her Clay County school on Monday afternoon. She lives in the Grove Park neighborhood of Orange Park and was last seen a few blocks from her home at about 2:45 p.m., according to the Clay County Sheriff's Office.

In a news release, the Sheriff's Office said Somer's mother was walking through her neighborhood looking for Somer when she flagged down a passing deputy and reported the 7-year-old was missing. Somer had reportedly been walking home with her sister and friends but ran ahead of them heading toward home.

--------------------------------------

ORANGE PARK, FL -- Somer Thompson's mom, Diena Thompson, will appear on all three network morning shows this morning.

The parking lot at Orange Park's Town Hall is filled with trucks, as crews prepare for the interviews inside council chambers.

Thompson will appear on Good Morning America on ABC and The Today Show on NBC.

A reporter for NBC News and several network news producers are also in Orange Park this morning.

I can't even watch another mom right now. I am just going to keep praying for Somer's safe return, as well as all of the other missing babies. My youngest daughter is 6 1/2 yo. As I have said too many times, I would never let her or even my 12 yo and 14 yo walk anywhere without an adult. I know in some people's opinion that makes me paranoid, over-protective, or a "hover mother", but I don't care. When it comes to my babies, I will do anything and everything to keep them safe.

Police had already been investigating a separate child abduction attempt two weeks ago in which the potential abductor tried to lure a girl into a car, one block away from the spot where Somer was last seen.

Beseler said today that authorities had located both the car and the individual and are "pretty confident" the cases are not connected.

It is so sad we can't let our children out to play, walk home from school or go visit a friend without parents walking them.

Well that information is huge and they really need to publicize that more. I think people are looking for a blue car, and they need to know that it isn't necessary to waste their time looking if it has been found.
