    Fake, soliciting money, taking advantage of a lost child and her family, mis-spelling words.... DM jumps to mind.

    No surprise, this world sure is full of some very twisted people. Hopefully nobody made any donations to the site.

    They are no longer accepting donations. This has already been posted.

    I am sorry, I didn't see the article you are referring to. I found this article that was posted on 2/22/09. I figured it was a new article or another group trying to make money off of this poor child. Did anyone find out who the group was? I have came across a few sites for Haleigh's, but none that are asking for money.

    No need to be sorry,the post was actually made by me on the rewards and donations thread. I was corrected by a mod that said the article stated that the donations were no longer being accepted in which i guess i did not see. The site is still up but it was first made by a Kim Savage and now it is being ran by an 11 year old which i find odd. (maybe her child,who knows) There is not much to the site,but it does state by a family member of Haleigh that they do not know the person that made the site and to be aware of fraud. Im assuming the article was correct in stating that the site no longer was recieving donations because i could not find anywhere on the site listed to donate.

    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    Is the site findhailey.com the same one that was on the news? It is created by an 11 yr old girl!
    My opinion is just that...my opinion...

    Why do the families of both sides need donations?They're not spending money looking elsewhere for her.I remember when the VanDams,Danielle's parents were looking for her,they fed and gave water out to searchers.These families aren't needing to do that.I can see taking them food,campers,tvs,but why money coming in for looking for her when I don't think they are.I think all proceeds for missing children should go to helping find the child and an education fund if they are returned and even in this case,JR.The reason I'm saying this,is because wacko parents that want to do something to thier child,because they know they can get rich off of it,will be encouraged by dollar signs.

    ITA! I think the site should be removed. I find it hard to believe an 11 yr old is behind it!
