    They didn't tell us specifically which direction she ran in the video, if she was clothed or where the diaper was found. We were, however, still searching the lake shore (per their direction) long after the video was watched and there were teams all over and in the water all day. I don't think they have ruled out the water at all.

    However, I think that perhaps they're trying to have hope that the water wasn't a foregone conclusion, so they're revving up asking people to really search hiding places. JMO.

    How warm is it? Would she have survived if she crawled into a car?

    “Canines have led to a diaper we believe the child was wearing at some point, located near the waterway at least one house away,” said Celli.

    The scent trail seemed to end there, he said."

    It has been dropping down to 50 at night the last 2 nights. Temps will be slightly lower near water.

    This reminded me of another case from a couple of years ago : http://www.cnn.com/2011/10/28/us/vir...stic-boy-found

    Robert Wood Jr. Was found alive 5 days after he wandered off during a hike. I'm praying that little Mikaela is found safe just like Robert.

    A great article re: Robert Wood Jr another mute, autistic child who wandered off. Lots of info on autistic children who go missing. I found this interesting:

    Koester’s stats told searchers that 50 percent of autistic kids in temperate environments are found within one mile of their last known location and 75 percent are found within 2.3 miles; that even in the wilderness, 45 percent are found inside structures and 20 percent on roads; and that 50 percent are found within 15 yards of a linear feature—a river, railroad, trail, or road—and 75 percent within 22 yards. “That gives you a model that sort of looks like spaghetti thrown against a plate,” Koester says with a wry chuckle. Nonetheless, it is a searcher’s road map.

    Despite identifiable tendencies, autistic kids are considered highly unpredictable. As the saying goes in the field, “When you meet one autistic person, you meet one autistic person.” The bottom line for Robert’s profile was troubling. The model went out only 48 hours, at which point there was only a 56 percent chance of finding him alive.

    It would have seemed even worse if it hadn’t been for a remarkable case 18 months earlier in the Florida swamplands north of Orlando. There, 11-year-old Nadia Bloom, who suffers from ADD, anxiety, and Asperger’s syndrome, wandered off from home and was lost for four days. She slept in an “itchy” bush the first night, managed to evade snakes and alligators, and ate spongy plants until a rescuer found her, dehydrated but otherwise OK. How did she spend her time? She took photographs, many of sunlight flashing hotly off water.

    More on that surveillance video:

    "CLEARLAKE A home surveillance video near the home of a missing child captured a view of Mikaela Renee Lynch, 9, running naked down the street. Shortly after, the video caught a glimpse of Mikaela's mother searching for her daughter in a white truck. Though the mother did not see her child, the video timestamp indicated the mother was about two minutes behind her daughter."

    How sad the Mom was right behind her. Hope they find her safe!

    Has anyone seen the current water flows for Cache Creek? I'm not easily finding them. I know they slowed them down on Sunday, but that's it.

    Probably not.

    Depending on such factors as what color he's wearing and when he last drank something, an infant might die of hyperthermia in just 15 minutes on a 75-degree day. Cooler weather is no guarantee of safety, either. Overly bundled babies -- warmly dressed and blanketed in their car seats -- have been known to succumb when outdoor temps were in the 60s or even 50s. And despite popular belief, cracking open a window does little good. That tiny bit of air can't begin to offset the heat that is absorbed by a car's seats, dashboard, and walls.

    As a parent, this is the WORST nightmare - a child wandering off into water when you turn your back. To know the mother was 2 minutes behind her and yet she's not found - that is tough. I feel so bad for the family, this has to be insanely awful.

    Thank you SFNancy! You're such a standup person. XO

    [Between 2009 and 2011, 91 percent of autistic children younger than 14 died in drowning incidents after "elopements." More than two-thirds of those deaths occurred in small natural bodies of water, such as creeks, lakes, rivers and ponds, acccording to the National Autism Association.

    Still, Clearlake Police Chief Craig Claussen told KGO-TV he was "hopeful about the search."]

    That link seems to be for the Cache River in Arkansas.

    Yeah, crossing my fingers and toes that she comes home safely.
