    Sheriff names parents suspects in disappearance of Idaho toddler
    By Crimesider Staff CBS News January 25, 2016, 4:26 PM

    [...]

    "They are the top persons of interest," Bowerman told CBS affiliate KBOI. "Does that mean they're suspects? Yeah I think so."

    [...]

    "They know something, I just don't know what they know," he told the station. "It causes me alarm. I believe they know where he is absolutely."

    Sheriff: Parents named as suspects in DeOrr Kunz Jr. case
    By David Ashby dashby@journalnet.com Jan 25, 2016

    [...]

    “We’ve interviewed them multiple times, and every time there are changes to parts of their story,” Bowerman said. “The little things all change every time we speak with them.”

    [...]

    "We re-interviewed them, but they weren’t willing to tell us the truth,” Bowerman said.
    The last interview with the parents was conducted this past weekend.

    Out of the four suspects interviewed, Bowerman said Reinwand’s story has been the most consistent. However, all four are still considered persons of interest in the case, the sheriff said.

    "They were at the scene, so we won’t rule them out,” Bowerman said. “But in terms of persons of interest, I think mom and dad are higher on the list.”

    LE and the organized searchers would need a warrant to search private lands. Some of this land may be held by companies/corporations. The warrants would have to be served on the proper officer of the corp/company to be valid. Those officers may not be in the state. Just a suggestion that it could take a while to get the warrant served.

    Maybe some or all private lands were not searched during the initial massive search and VDK was just taking a jab by pointing out all the areas that have not been searched.

    Sometimes I think that DeOrr was not on the trip to Leadore, but was left with GGP at the campsite for a few hours while IR was fishing.

    What if these two are such rotten, no-good, bad character, drug addict, irresponsible people who neglect and abuse their child and an aging relative, with not much to lose, decided the child was better off with another family and that his last meaningful act on Earth was to arrange a disappearance?

    There is a movie where the child is intentionally taken from her drug addict mother's at risk life. It was arranged by the child's uncle and the new parents were an LE commander and his wife. Some people get tired of waiting for the system to save the kid. I dunno.

    Back to the issue of the "Hotwheels" being searchable by metal detector:

    As suggested by Tr., I held my Pierce Brosnan as James Bond magnet up to my Sharkcruiser. No dice. Maybe what seems to be metal is so adulterated with other things that it doesn't "read" as metal to a magnet. Dunno, but the magnet itself works fine. Let's hope that if Deorr had any in his pockets, they were made of real metal (like those owned chez Neesaki), unlike my cute plastic one!

    According to my google investigation Hotwheels cars are usually made from an aluminium/zinc alloy, neither of which are very magnetic. I did think a Hotwheels car should make a metal detector beep though?

    My son has a basic metal detector but it's at grandmas house, otherwise I'd be up in his room now trying it out on his massive Hotwheels collection! We've used it on the beach and it picked up all kinds of metal tat. I wish now I'd tested it all against a proper magnet.

    I read this, and immediately thought of DeOrr. This little one died when he was left alone in an rv for seven hours!!!!

    http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/...Ru8?li=BBnb4R7

    The woman's brother said,“I don’t think it was to be harmful or anything, I just think it was neglect, she got busy doing something else.”

    These parents "
    each face second-degree murder and felony child neglect charges." Would JM and VDK find that a good enough reason to stage a huge cover-up????

    I'm pretty sure hot wheels are not made of metal anymore.

    I'm pretty sure they are, in part anyway. We have over 100 in our house and some do feel different to others, but they are defo made of some type of metal. I've just checked about 20 out with a magnet and none are magnetic. IN some the base is plastic but the rest is metal. Interesting how they all feel a bit different, some are really heavy and solid, others feel more plasticky and lightweight.

    Anyway. The point of me bringing all this up yesterday was to try and establish whether the parents have ever been asked if he had a toy car with him when he vanished. Jessica said in the interview that he literally always had one in his hand or pocket.

    Most coins aren't magnetic but they are definitely picked up on a metal detector. My son has a fairly decent metal detector and he has found all sorts of things, including lots of old Hotwheels (old metal ones). When he gets home from school, I'll have him check to see if the newer Hotwheels are detected on it...

    The same in my house. They are all diffrent. Some are heavy, some are just plastic but I haven't found one to truly be metal. I thought I heard they stopped making them metal in the 70s/80s but I might be thinking of the tonka trucks.

    I've always felt that if DeOrr didn't have his blanket then he had his cars and was playing with them like they said. That makes sense to me. But surly they didn't bring him just one hot wheel car. Didn't he have other big trucks and stuff to play with. That bothers me more then a small hot wheel missing.

    Not to quote myself. But speaking of bigger trucks or other toys. I don't know about other toddler boys but mine always leaves a trail. He will start out carrying as many of his trucks, cars as he can and slowly lose some as he goes.
    I guess what I ment is I don't understand that part. Like how was his set up. Where were his other toys?

    BBM - Well this is what I was getting at but thought I was being super silly! I would definitely say a hotwheels car would be picked up by a metal detector then. Did you all read the post at the end of the last thread about Ben Needham (also missing with a toy car in Greece) and the giant metal detectors they used in his case? Not sure how to being an old post forward, could somebody please do the honours?

    Well TBH, I've never tried them with a magnet, lol.

    RSBM. Can't speak for others but we bring very few toys when camping with a 3 and 6 year old (and didn't when they were younger, either). They got to bring their special "lovey" (don't go anywhere without that...) but other than that the expectation was that the kids were playing and exploring outside (supervised closely....). We'd take a ball or two and usually a football, frisbee and decks of cards and books for when it's rainy. It's amazing how much time they can spend drawing in the dirt with sticks and seeking out various bugs and such.

    Why are we talking about finding cars with metal detectors if we don't know for sure that he had a car in his pocket (even though parents said he did)? Ground penetrating radar would be a much better search tool.

    (Speaking of the car in his pocket, I can't remember if parents said it was in his jacket pocket or pants pocket. If pants pocket, do boys' pajama bottoms have pockets?)

    EDIT - it was Grandpa Kunz that said he had a car in his pocket, but he did not say which pocket. Grandpa Kunz was not at the campground that we know of.
