    I say all this with the suspicion that Jessica has never left that neighborhood. I think she's still there within a block or two of her home. I hope and pray that she's okay. But my heart is breaking all over again.

    By the way, I understand why they don't want people sleuthing RSOs. Lawsuits are expensive.

    That's what I was thinking and that the placement of the 'bag' is a red herring.

    My posts are meant to help think through possibilities and are strictly an additional opinion under circumstances when many points of view need to be considered. I apologize in advance to anyone whose potential involvement is contemplated in error. Please understand that much of what is happening is merely brainstorming during unfortunate events.

When i signed up for my probation at the office i signed papers acknowledging that i gave them the right to search and do home checks and stuff.
    This is one of my pet peeves! Peeples is correct, they can do a pretty thorough search whether the RSO agrees or not. The problem is that so often, the contact is left up to a probation officer or regular patrol officer who has a list of RSO's to check in a short amount of time. Sometimes, they just knock on the door, ask the RSO where he was and, unless the dude is obviously drunk or covered in blood, we're lucky if they do more than a cursory walk-thru! All the RSO has to do is change clothes and hide the kid in a closet or under the laundry and he's got a pretty good chance of getting "cleared" unless they have some reason to come back and take a closer look.

    I am basing my opinion on other cases we've seen with RSO's who've continued to re-offend for years only to find out that the probation officers has very little contact with them at all. Jaycee Dugard's captor is one of them. Other children have been found dead in their homes even after police have "searched" two and three times. John Cooey had a little girl alive in his closet when police searched his home and she ended up buried in his yard!

    I love police officers! I am "police family", I see first hand that they work hard and do their best, and risk their lives for the rest of us! The way RSO's are so quickly "cleared" just leaves so much room for error. They need to search everywhere that a small child's body could be hidden and be keenly aware of details such as items belonging to the child. Search Rso's vehicles, outbuildings, attic, crawl spaces, junk in the yard and trash! Look closely at their fingernails, photograph any fresh scratches too!

    MOO
