    It sounds like they have found the girls who are 5 yrs now and they are safe in a foster home. Glad to hear that.

    Sick

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Believe. Looks like two of the kids have been found as Bobbisangel has said. This link has a photograph of the hotel room in it that apparently this freak had used. They are hoping people will recognize it, and looks like they are getting some leads. What a sad, sad set of circumstances. Hope they find them two women.http://www.king5.com/topstories/stor....17d55700.html

    Hey Mama Jen, that would be Chester A Stiles I believe. Never be sorry, HMJ. That was a good question. Hope your headaches are better.

    He's really a creepy POS, isn't he? I'm glad he's off the streets.

    God bless the children involved, and the investigators that have to go through his trash. It sounds like the children already have a rough start if they are in foster homes. Hopefully they are loving homes.

    Where did you find the link that says they were found? The links I clicked were still asking for help in identifying them.
    Happy New Years

    I think it says in the first link in this thread that the girls had been found safe in a foster home.

    teonsprincess, one of the articles linked in the thread has been updated to say the girls are safe. Police have a terabyte of pictures to go through so there may be many more victims.

    The reports are now stating that there is a chance he manufactured the violent images found using actual pictures of children, however investigators cannot tell for sure, so they have a list of more children that need to be accounted for...

    Puyallup, Wash., police believe the computer's owner, Andrew F. Kowalczyk, 33, may have been abusing the children shown in hundreds of images.

    There were also images of four women and a hotel room on the computer of Kowalczyk, who was arrested at a hotel in Puyallup on Dec. 27, police said...

    Kowalczyk has a long criminal history that includes convictions for assault and threatening others with a gun.

    Investigator Clark began his search for child pornography pursuant to the warrant on January 4. He contacted Detective Visnaw later that day and reported recovering images and video of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. The pictures did not show the offender's face, but one showed a silver watch on his wrist.

    On January 5, Puyallup police issued a press release depicting four adult women whose pictures were found on Kowalczyk's computer, hoping that someone would come forward to identify the children.

    That day, Detective Visnaw also applied for and received another warrant to search Kowalczyk's personal property stored at the jail, specifically for watches and rings, to compare with the images. After obtaining the warrant, he found a "Swiss Army" silver watch with diamonds or fake diamonds, which appeared to be the same type of watch as depicted in the photographs.

    While reviewing the images again, officers found one depicting half of a woman's face with the two youngest children. Police released the image of half of the woman's face to the media.

    On January 6, a woman later determined to be the mother of three of the victims called into the tip line. Her sister had seen the news coverage in the Portland area. She thought the children were hers. She asked for the name of the suspect and Detective Visnaw told her Kowalczyk. She began "to sob uncontrollably," said she knew him, and explained how she knew him. MTS-109, at KOWAL00097. She said that Kowalczyk had watched the two youngest children for her at times from approximately 5-6 months until they were 2-3 years old.

    On January 7, Detective Visnaw learned that Kowalczyk sometimes went by the name "Jessie."

    Portland Police Detective Darrell Miller was assigned to the case after learning that the children were from the Portland area. He attended a CARES Northwest evaluation for the three listed victims on January 11 and 18. Detective Miller attempted to contact the victims' mother on multiple occasions and finally spoke with her on January 22. He asked her questions about how Kowalczyk and she had met, where they stayed, and when he had access to her children. She confirmed he had, at one point, stayed at a motel under the name of "Jessie." At the conclusion of the conversation, Detective Miller told her he had a number of non-pornographic pictures to show her and asked her if she would be willing to identify where the pictures were taken. Detective Miller reported that she was willing to help.

    Detective Miller met with the mother the next day at 4:15 p.m. She came with an advocate from Self Enhancement, Inc., who explained she was a domestic violence advocate who had been working with the mother and was trying to get her into an alcohol/drug treatment program. The mother identified a number of the locations and people. Detective Miller noted the mother smelled of alcohol.

    The mother and advocate met with Detective Miller the next day, and again the mother identified several of the locations from photographs.

    the girls were pictured in ordinary snapshots. Police hope to learn whether these girls also were among the children who appear in pornographic photos, in which faces are obscured.
