    There has to be more to this story than two seemingly unrelated disappearances in two days. Where was the great grandma last seen?

    If the reports that I'm reading are correct, that the granddaughter was left off in Westfield, thats fairly close to Noblesville where the great grandma lived and a main route from Tipton to Westfield could go through Noblesville.

    How often does a 10 year old get abducted, driven around, and dropped off?

    This is so bizarre.

    LE speaking, see video at link-

    http://www.fox59.com/news/crime/wxin...,5485148.story

    LE states:


    Nothing out of place in the home-
    Dorothy's purse is missing, but car is at home in driveway-
    Scent dogs brought in, no hits. LE believes she was taken from her home in a vehicle-
    LE checking credit card and bank info for any activity-
    Heard was reported missing a few hours before Heard's granddaughter was kidnapped while riding her bike-

    I was thinking that Serena could have shown her abductor where G-Ma lived (all her abductor did was drive her around for five hours). But she was abducted Tuesday evening, Dorothy has been missing since Monday night, so that doesn't add up.

    I just think it's too bizarre to be coincidental.

    I have not been able to locate this woman's date of birth, or see where she is listed on a Missing Person's site yet.

    IF anyone sees it, please put it here.

    Strange case indeed!

    Maybe the grandma was already abducted and for whatever reason the abductor was going to bring the child to her....only changed his mind before he did.
    Or maybe Grandma wasn't abducted, but wants the little girl...family issues?
    Strange

    Girl's abduction changes family's world

    TIPTON, Ind. (WISH) - A 10-year-old Tipton girl is with her family after she was abducted Tuesday. Now police continue to look for the man who she says forced her into his car.

    Serena Weicht, one of three sisters, was riding her bike near her Tipton home Tuesday around 6:30 p.m.

    "“We had just finished supper, and Serena had asked me if she could go for a bike ride, which she’'s done probably 100 times right around the block here," said her dad, Todd Weicht. "“I said, '‘Sure, you can go ride your bike."

    When she didn’'t come home , he went looking for her. Around the corner from their home, he saw her bike knocked over near the intersection of North and Main streets.

    “"I knew immediately something was wrong,"” he said.

    A neighbor witnessed part of what happened when Serena was taken. She was talking to police when Todd Weicht approached.

    "“She heard her scream, and then she saw the car taking off,"” Weicht said.

    About four and a half hours later, Serena was found . Her abductor, she said, dropped her off at the Wendy’s in Westfield about 25 miles away.

    Serena told her parents the man said very little. "He drove around a lot," Todd Weicht said. "He got a phone call, but he didn't talk for very long. There wasn't much conversation or dialogue there at all between them."

    I just can't help but wonder if this is related to the Grandmother's disappearance.

    It seem the grand daughter would recognize a family member, perhaps they are distant or perhaps thats how they were pointed to him.

    Either way this doesnt look good

    This is too strange and just has got to be related, no?

    It just makes zero sense..

    Grandma was last seen Monday evening.. By Tuesday evening LE is contacted and she is reported Missing. Atvaround the same time that she is reported Missing her great grand daughter Serena is snatched off her bike with witnesses hearing and seeing most of the abduction, including giving an excellent description of the man that grabbed Serena.

    Serena was not taken to any specific location but rather drove around continuously for 5 hours..(is there video of them stopping for gas..food..etc).. Serena is not assaulted in any way during the 5 hours. She says very little was spoken btwn them and that he received a phone call that was very short in length..and dropped off at a Wendy's 25 miles from her home..

    LE must've had leads or tips that led them to the guy who they pursued in a short lived car chase resulting in him being arresting on charges stemming from the chase.. The vehicle fits the description of the abductors vehicle that snatched Serena.. Do we have a pic of this guy? Does he fit the description that was given of the abductor and better yet wouldbt Serena be able to positively id this guy as her abductor..

    This has got to somehow be related..

    Did I red that Heards purse is missing but her car was still at the home,and is grandmas house near either the place where Serena was abducted or the Wendy's where she was released?

    Do we know any details from the little girl, like what she was told to do when he dropped her at the Wendy's?

    And did she go alert workers of what had just taken place? Or was she recognized by someone as the missing child??

    Just a couple of questions that I have.. Would love to hear more about this and see where it leads.. IMO it has got to lead to it having been connected..

    Do we know if there is a connection of any kind found yet of the perp and any members of this family??

    Last question(for now..lol).. Correct me if I'm wrong in I
    Do not get the feeling we are talking about a family of great wealth? Not at all? Because upon first glance it could look like a ransom abduction attempt of some sort involving more than one victim therefor hoping to drive the ransom amount up.. But as I said from what I gather this family is not of any great wealth..
