    BOISE - Robert Manwill was last seen at 9:30 p.m. Friday near his home in the 2800 block of West Cherry Lane. [snipped]

    Seen Robert? Call Ada County Dispatch at 377-6790.
    When Obama called on the SEALs, they answered the call and killed Bin Laden. When the SEALs called on Obama, he didn't answer, and they were killed.

    Thanks for posting Liz. I just saw this. I hope Robert is found safe and soon.

    FBI to Join in Search for Missing Boy

    The search continues for a missing 8 year old boy, and now the FBI is getting involved.

    Charles McClure of the Boise Police department says they've handed out fliers, stopped cars, and searched a canal and a nearby pond trying to find Robert Manwill who was last seen Friday night about 9:30 near his home in the 2800 block of Cherry Lane.

    Update from about 3 hours ago:

    Community still searching for missing 8-year-old Sunday

    About 75 volunteers, including off-duty officers, Boise State University officers and residents, methodically scoured the neighborhood around Robert Manwill's home.

    The 8-year-old went missing 9:30 p.m. Friday from the 2800 block of Cherry Lane, near Vista Avenue and Targee Street in Southwest Boise. The New York Canal is about two blocks south of the apartment complex where Robert lives.

    ~snipped~

    Officers have asked anyone who may have seen the boy, even for a moment walking down the street, to call them at Crime Stoppers, 343-COPS.

    Police say family members are not suspected in the boy's disappearance.

    Well, it's good to hear that the family isn't suspected. But I do have to question why he wasn't asked to which friend's home he was going for this "party" at 9:30 at night. I was in Boise on Friday night and Saturday, but didn't hear about this until just now.

    Also...I don't recall the FBI getting involved in a case so soon before. I could be mistaken, but it's kind of concerning.

    It does appear as if the FBI is getting involved rather quickly. LE must think something happened to the him? I'm glad they are getting involved and I'm wondering if Idaho has another alert system, like Amber Alert, but that can be used when there is no car or suspect?

    Prayers this child is found soon!!

    As always, I am hoping that someone already brought in some tracking dogs, to try and distinguish just how far this little guy got. Time is of the essence! I pray Robert is found safe and sound.

    Plus, isn't 8-years old a little young to be going partying? (Or maybe I'm just being an "old fart"?)

    It depends on what you mean by "party," I guess. My 12 y.o. goes to a "party" at a friend's house and it means they eat pizza and ice cream, chase each other around with Nerf guns, and then sleep on the rec room floor in sleeping bags for the night, all under a parent's supervision.

    Hope Robert is found safe soon!

    I don't think Idaho has any specific other alerts, but I'm pretty sure they use the CANS Missing Endangered Alert nation wide. Some sort of alert should be issued. They always wait so long to issue a CANS, and I just don't get it. Lindsey Baum's was 3 days after she was missing. Adji Desir's was 5 days later. I'm not sure of the exact criteria for a CANS, but in my opinion, the second the AMBER Alert request was denied, they should have requested a CANS. He's an 8 year old that hasn't been home in 2 days. I'm pretty sure he qualifies as "missing endangered".

    This is what I assumed "party" to mean too. Even if it's a sleep-over though, I think 9:30 is a little late to be starting...and for the parents to not know whos party it is.

    According to this video, Robert wanted to go to the BIRTHDAY party. He asked his mom, but mom said no. Then Robert later walked out of the house.

    Also mentions dad's name is Charles Manwill, and an Aunt Trish Burrell.

    Search Continues for Missing Boise Boy

    Police officers and over one hundred volunteers together in prayer before heading out to again look for a missing eight-year-old boy.

    Robert Manwill disappeared late Friday night now 48 hours later he is still nowhere to be found.

    "At this point we don't know where Robert is we're trying to determine what has happened and pleading with the public for the assistance to locate Robert Manwill", says Deputy Chief Jim Kerns.

    This probably explains why he went to the party so late (because he was going without permission) and why the mom didn't know where the party was.

    According to the Idaho State Patrol sex offender registry, there are 408 RSO's within 5 miles of Robert's home. There are 70 within 1 mile. And there are 5-10 VERY close to his home.

    I couldn't get the link of the search to work, but if you want to see, just use the 2800 W. Cherry Lane address that has been given in reports. That's not his exact address, it's just the block given in media reports.

    They are doing a news conference right now. The officer says they don't believe there actually was a party.
