    The Van

    Apologies mods if this subject is addressed elsewhere - I couldn't find it so feel free to wave your wand if necessary

    The Van:

    Where is it?
    Who owns it?
    Why was Haleigh's favorite blanket or the one she used every night in the van and not the house?
    Does/did it actually contain a blanket? If so wouldn't LE have taken the van and blanket as evidence?
    Did Misty ever drive this van? Like the day/night of the disappearance?

    Last - I SWEAR I heard somebody in this case in an interview say something about LE having taken the van. Am I alone or did someone else remember this? I need to watch all the interviews and see if I can find it ---unless one of you knows where it is?

    IIRC the blanket in the van was Misty's. It was taken away with the van. I still don't know if it was her van or her brother's van that was taken. I think she was referring to LE taking the van along with the contents which was her blanket. But I could be wrong. We know she had family over early in the evening, she may have put the blanket in their van to hang out. The grandmother of Ron said they had family over that Monday and she sent someone over to check on the kids and give them cloths. It is still very confusing.

    It was Misty's blanket in the van, not Haleigh's. Misty made the statement "in the van they took" but IMO she was not referring to LE. She is talking about washing blankets and she could not get hers because "it was in the van they took"...this was all before LE was involved. IMO the van belongs to brother Tommy...and could very well be how they "got rid" of Haleigh.

    HA! I love your sig! Your post too! I guess it was Misty's blanket in the van and maybe Tommy still has the blanket? Wonder if LE has checked out this van! I am thinking that surely they have (praying)....

    I hope so...I think the van and blanket are going to turn out to be very important to this.

    WAIT! I just thought of something. The grandma said that she had family over to check on kids and drop off some clothes, right? What if they are the ones who 'took the blanket in the van' with a load of laundry, to be washed for her? Maybe they do the laundry and were dropping off clean clothes (a load of laundry) and picked up the dirty load ... which contained the blanket?

    Whatcha think?

    I think it was suggested as a possibility.

    And we do know that Tommy and Lindsy have a minivan. They live around the corner.

    Misty said she was washing blankets....so she has a washer and dryer....so I don't think so...but..

    "I put her to bed…..and…. her blanket and my blanket…my blanket was in the van that they took, so we had a blanket hanging on the window, and I had to wash that and her blanket. Her blanket was…. Like she had peed on her blanket the night before I guess and I was gonna put it on her, but it smelled like pee, so I washed the blanket and I gave her a little sheet to cover up with.and she fell asleep and I come in there and put her blanket on her….."

    My take on this statement is that she was recounting the events of the night before and was explaining the bedtime, washing blankets, location of her blanket, other blanket on the window. She is making the statement "the van that they took" with the emphasis on the word took, as though she thinks this is common knowledge to whomever she is talking to. I felt that it was possibly a van that had been repossessed with her blanket in it.

    Interesting thought. There's been reference made a time or two to Misty's having been away for three days. I thought her blanket being in the van was associated with that trip, wherever she went, i.e. she'd taken the blanket with her and hadn't brought it back into the house yet. If the van was still there at the time she needed another blanket, would she not have just gone out to the van and gotten it? So I'm thinking "they" is someone other than LE, who would have not taken the van until after the fact.

    Not much has been said about the van, but why would LE take it and not list it on the incident report. The only item listed as being taken from the home is 1 CD.

    Misty's response to the question of "what happened that night" doesn't make a load of sense. She starts saying she put her to bed and then goes on about the blankets. Her wording of how she starts the sentence "..her blanket and my blanket.. my blanket was in the van.." shows Misty fishing for words to dodge the question in general. "her blanket was... like she had peed on her blanket the night before i guess and i was gonna put it on her.."
    Her voice sounds like she's lying during that interview. She's throwing together words randomly about the blankets. No one asked her about blankets, they asked her what happened that night. So instead of saying maybe she made the kids dinner, watched some tv, etc, Misty goes on about blankets. I doubt she was even home.

    FDLE Special Agent in Charge, Dominick Pape, said one vehicle has been seized and processed. It is unknown if any new information has come from the seized vehicle.
