    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    "has confirmed criminal history of harming children, sexual assault, domestic assault or is suicidal,"

    So...which is it? Sounds like generic alert criteria to me. Which criterion does this abductor meet?

    EXACTLY!

    (He is not a registered sex offender in Michigan, for what it's worth.)

    This is the criminal history I can find on him, though I didn't really look that hard.

    2005 Criminal trespass: http://www.fairfield-city.org/courtr...593EEC890108DC

    2005 Failure to appear on Criminal trespass charge: http://www.fairfield-city.org/courtr...593EEC88050EDC


    They believe the child is in extreme danger of being harmed.

    Then they show that adorable, obviously most recent picture they have of her and it's with her father. That really isn't going to help convince people he is going to hurt her.

    How hard is it to say "We believe the child is in extreme danger of being harmed because _____________."

    That should be a requirement. It drives me nuts.

    If you believe the child is in extreme danger, you should be able to give a reason why.

    If you have enough information to make the statement, you should have enough information to explain it as well. The person has made threats, the person has been abusive before, the person is suicidal, whatever it might be. You would think if there WAS something major like child abuse convictions, they would have said that.

    If all you can come up with is "we believe the child might be in danger..." Then it might be time to review the information that brought you to that conclusion. Are we sure this isn't a custody dispute over the holidays?

    Unless there is some huge piece of information we are missing, I think this one will have a happy ending. That's a great thing of course.


    This article certainly sounds much less dramatic:

    http://www.freep.com/article/2010122...Lansing-girl-3

    A 3 year old girl was taken from her mother's house in the 1300-block of East Lansing and may be in danger, police said.

    The East Lansing Police Department said the child may be with Lester Devon Pernell, 28.

    Police are asking anyone with information to call the East Lansing Police Department at 517-351-4220.

    Haven't found any news reports that have any info other than what is in the AA....but wow - he's 6'6" & 220 pounds - that's a big guy!

    Maybe we'll know more about the reporters are wrapped up reporting on tonite's lunar eclipse.
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    I just pray that he doesn't hurt this precious child. Were they having a dispute as to who gets the baby over the holidays? This time of year can really make people go nuts. Wonder if he works, and who he hangs out with. It shouldn't take long for LE to find him.

    She is so adorable. I hope he does not hurt her. We all know here on WS that parents can take a child from another parent and hurt them out of revenge - or hurt them and kill themselves. So I hope she is found quickly.
