    I am a bit confused by this Amber Alert. With such a lack of information, I am realy surprised that they issued and Ambert Alert. There isn't even a picture of her at NCMEC. http://www.missingkids.com/missingki...t/AmberServlet

    I hope that this little girl is found unharmed.

    I hope they've checked all the neighbors. I just hate it when they find the child two houses away a month later, and they've been there the entire time. Not saying this is what happened, I just hope they've checked.

    There is a registered sex offender living at 6607 MCDONALD ST DETROIT, MI 48210Raven's address is 6595 McDonald St. That is awfully close. I hope that LE has talked to him. Here is the link for the listings http://www.familywatchdog.us/ShowList.asp

    There are 40 within a mile of her residence.

    Lets hope this little sweetie is found alive and well. I cant believe the USA is fortunate enough to be able to literally type in their adress and it'll bring you up a list of paedophiles addresses. Unless I am mistaken there is not that facility in the UK - what a shame.

    Does anyone know if they've cancelled the amber alert? On clickondetroit.com they don't have anything listed about the amber alert, just that they have now called in the FBI. This is a couple miles South of me (I'm in the suburbs just north of Detroit) and I haven't been seeing any updates or really much period on the local news stations about this little girl. I see that's it is still listed on the State of Michigan website as an amber alert, just wondering why the local news (channel 4) doesn't have it as an amber alert!?!

    In order for an Amber Alert to be issued, doesn't there have to be a viewed abduction?

    I can't find any update info on Raven. Are there searches going on or what? All that I can find is the initial Amber Alert.

    I've seen nothing posted throughout the neighborhood, nor heard of any type of formal nor informal searching going on- I'll watch the 11 oclock news for an update and post if there is anything.

    Was down 8 mile earlier, nothing out of the ordinary (signs, flyers, etc) so not quite sure what's going on.

    Raven Jeffries is the top story on WXYZ in Detroit for tonight. Netcast here:

    The video shows family and neighbors posting flyers around the neighborhood. Raven is still missing.

    The video requires a Flash 8 Player. There's a link on that page to install it for free.

    I always thought so too, but geesh sometimes it just seems like it is at the whim of whatever LE agency is in charge. Earlier this summer, those two boys from Terre Haute were abducted at knifepoint by their father, and the LE said they didn't feel like an Amber Alert was warranted! One boy ended up dead at the hands of his father, and the other child was seriously wounded.

    I sure hope this little girl is found safe and well.
