Chances of a safe return?
I've been busy this weekend and just checked the news and was surprised that Haleigh was still missing. Do you think they'll ever find her?
What are the chances that a child is found after so long?

I pray for the best, but...
I'm expecting the worst.
I hope I'm wrong, and they bring her home safe and happy..... ....... My posts are my opinion, only.

I think we're all praying for a family abduction and Haleigh will be found safe but the reality is the time missing without a poi.~ Beating the drum of awareness ~

I fear the worst for poor Haleigh. The family did the right thing by contacting the authorities right away. However, it has been over 12 days and no leads have panned out for her safe return.
United States Statistics Missing Children Statistics
- A child goes missing every 40 seconds in the U.S., over 2,100 per day
800,000 children go missing each year
90% are juveniles
50% are 4 to 11 years old
Strangers commit 53% of child abductions that end tragically
Another 500,000 go missing without ever being reported
According to the U.S. Department of Justice
74% of tragic outcomes after a child abduction occurred within three hours of being taken. According to one study of missing children statistics and stranger abductions, showed that 44% of the cases ended tragically within the first hour. By the third hour, it was 74%, and within 24 hours, 91%.
How effective has Amber Alert been?
AMBER Alert has been very effective. Recent kidnapping statistics in America show that AMBER Alert programs have helped save the lives of over 350 abducted children nationwide.
AMBER Alert cases have already shown that some perpetrators release the abducted child after hearing the AMBER Alert on the radio or seeing it on television.

Hello everyone, I'm a newby here. I hope that she's OK, something tells me that she might just be OK, I don't know why but I really hope so.

I hope I am wrong (as we all do) and she is found alive. Statistics don't seem to bear this out however. I don't think this is in bad taste. Unfortunately, its reality and what we do here. If we didn't talk about "death" and other unsavory subjects, WS would cease to exist.

The statistics say that she was probably dead within the first 3 hours and almost certainly dead within 3 days.
However, there is still the chance in this case of one of the family's having her, so that would improve her chances.
I hope for the best, but know the real life chances...and they aren't good.JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

The odds aren't good, but there is always hope - Elizabeth Smart.
I am really worried for this child, but praying for a miracle.

I just have a feeling she will be found alive. I definitely hope I am right.

Unfortunately, I think Haleigh is deceased. Too much time has elapsed since her disappearance.

I think she is dead. Killed by who....is up in the air.(all posts are my opinion only--do not try to understand my logic)

I don't know why... but I believe Haleigh is still alive (at least right now). I know there were supporters that truly believed Caylee was still alive, though I never felt that way, from the beginning. I just have a different feeling about this little one, I guess.A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie. ~Tenneva Jordan
