    What a sick, demented thing to lie about! We have enough horrible things happening to our children without having to make something like this up!

    I hope they find out who she is and I PRAY she doesn't have any children.

    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    you're totally right of course. but I have been reading terrible tragedies for so long now that I just feel deeply relieved that no children appear to have been harmed...

    Sadly, we pray for a hoax but know it could be real. Wicked world.

    Peggy Boemmel, chief financial officer at St. Joseph's, said said the first call was taken by an operator, who transferred it to a nurse in the emergency room.

    The woman told the nurse that she threw her baby off the bridge, then hung up. The nurse called 911.

    When the woman called back a few minutes later, she was transferred to the hospital's behavioral access center, an intake facility for drug and alcohol patients.

    The woman told an intake worker about throwing the infant off the bridge, Boemmel said.

    The worker also called 911, and at some point, the woman hung up, she said.

    The third time, the woman spoke to the same intake worker, who kept the line open for a "couple of hours," Boemmel said.

    The woman told hospital personnel that she threw her older children from the bridge because she could not afford to feed them, Coast Guard officials said.

    The search was suspended after eight hours in which both helicopter and boat crews found no evidence supporting the claim.

    Not only are the pedestrian walkways locked at night, but also the security cameras along the suspension bridge captured no images of the woman or anyone throwing anything off the span according to the Delaware River Port Authority.

    The unconfirmed report has turned up no bodies and authorities have been unable to locate Michelle Perez. If you have any information on the whereabouts of Perez, please contact the Camden police.

    Soooo, how about posting a pic of her so people can be on the look out for her. Also, have they checked birth records to see if she has ever had children?

    I wish they could give some more info.

    Lovejac, they don't know who she is. She gave false information. She could have been anyone.

    Why would she take her three kids on a bus from Philly to Camden only to walk across the bridge from there to throw them over? Why did she call Saint Joe's? I think she must have been in there at some point before. Whoever she is.

    If she couldn't afford to feed her kids how did she afford a bus ticket? Wouldn't they comb 11th and Filbert to see if anyone sold a bus ticket to a woman with three kids.

    Plus she said she was in a Jersey hotel. How is she affording that? No images captured. Surely somebody if she could even get up there at that time would have seen a woman with kids up there.

    Whoever she is she needs help.
