    Not only was her hubby the last to see her go, but they are in the midst of a Divorce, she left 7 kids, and her car is still in the drive.

    Sound familiar.....you bet it does.

    This is suspicious:
    Family members say the two are in the middle of a divorce. Our own Christina Wall interviewed Arnette Monday night, for a separate story about sex offenders on Myspace. Robert Arnette is a convicted child predator, and we found him on Myspace. He talked with Wall about Arnette, but never mentioned she was missing. He only said the two were getting a divorce.
    So did she find out he was molesting her children, a fight broke out, and she conveniently disappeared?

    You won't cry for my absence, I know -
    You forgot me long ago. Am I that unimportant...?
    Am I so insignificant...? Isn't something missing?
    Isn't someone missing me?

    Mr. E,

    It makes me wonder what the family problems were. The family member has had the children for months.

    Naomi was trying to get them back, according to an article I read.

    http://www.news-gazette.com/news/loc...plexes_friends

    Hyatt said she's perplexed by several details of the disappearance, especially because Arnette is fighting to regain custody of her seven children. The kids, who are between the ages of 7 and 17, are currently wards of the Department of Children and Family Services and living with a relative. Hyatt said Arnette has been fighting to get them back.

    and

    Arnette's brother, Charles Lechel, also is puzzled by her disappearance.

    Lechel said he hadn't spoken to his older sister much lately because he's been working a lot. But he knows she's never left before without telling anyone.

    "She was a churchgoer, a good person," Lechel said, adding that she doesn't smoke, drink or go to bars.

    Also, Nancy Grace covered this case. Transcript:

    Scroll past the Lohan debacle.

    I'll tell you what it sounds like to me. it sounds like some possible molestation was going on by this guy (stepfather?) of the kids, and/or bad arguments between the parents, and Naomi had the kids staying with her sister, and somehow the state got involved...and maybe Naomi was unable to leave this guy b/c of financial reasons, or get him out of the home, which is why she was having trouble getting the kids back. And it sounds like a bad fight on Monday likely led to this guy doing away with her. The same old, horrible story. Just awful. Those poor, poor children.

    Did I read correctly in the court tv transcripts that there was a boyfriend too?
    With personal experience I can say that if child services had reason to believe he was molesting the kids they would tell the mother to find a place for the kids, or hubby has to go. Sometimes it's only for a specific amount of time, in our case it was 6 months. I guess it's not uncommon for the Moms to misplace the children instead of giving the offender the boot. Of course, he could have threatened her if she was thinking about keeping the children home and asking him to leave. This is all just my speculation.

    I saw a very short segment about her on Nancy Grace...other than that, NOTHING.
    Very sad.

    Here are some possible aspects in regards of media coverage (or lack their of) on her:

    1. being as she is a mother without the custody of her kids, this image sometimes doesn't fit into some media outlet's cookie cutter profile of what a good mom is, so therefore they won't give her case air time.

    2. Then there are those outlets that will report it, but they will focus more on why she lost her kids, and then get to her disappearance like it is an after thought or something.

    3. Then there are those few media outlets that will focus and report on the fact that she is an innocent person and mother gone missing. They will touch on the fact that she was fighting to get her kids back, not as a way to put a dark light on her, but to uplift her image. This kind of reporting will be few and far between... IMO.


    There are other media reporting aspects, but those 3 are what first comes to mind. Thankfully, places like Websleuths exist where we can do our part to get information out there... something I have learned in my few short months of being here is that this place makes a difference in the lives of the missing and those searching for the missing. Mucho respect to all of you... this mother just got a hard working community on her case... hopefully she will be reunited with her babies, soon.

    I'm not sure if they were removing them. The only thing I've heard is that they were going to give a list of registered sex offender's with myspace accounts to authorities.
