    Well, I just do not like Ross' demeanor at all. The inconsistances do not look good either because it makes him seem to be lying. IMO, if he passed the polygraph I believe that LE would have cleared him. That has not happened yet.

    I saw the Nancy Grace interview too. I can't say that I thought he was covering his butt--to me it was more like he wanted to get the story straight due to errors in the press coverage of the incident. He especially was upset that the reports stated Hassani had leg braces and couldn't walk very far. He was afraid people would only be looking for the braces and ignoring the face of the child. He specifically said they would not be noticeable unless he was wearing shorts. I don't know what to think at this point, but I thought his explanation seemed very plausible and even NG (who jumps on everyone) was accepting his story. I guess I'll reserve judgement on this one until we hear more.

    OKay, please don't flame me for this, I am only thinking out loud, and i don't mean to turn this into a racial issue, so please hear me out.

    Ross is obviously a well educated man. I can see that in the way he talks and the way that he conducts himself ( no ghetto speak, very articulate, very good at putting his thoughts into logical order). He obviously has money, although at this point, I don't know how much is true wealth and how much is the appearance of wealth.
    Regardless, there are a lot of people in this country that are intimidated by a young black man with money. The cockiness and attitude may be something that Ross has had to put off his whole life simply to combat what simple minded cretins are prone to saying and thinking about people like Ross. Once you have cultivated that as a defense mechanism, it's hard to just turn it off.

    I just don't know. I'm not seeing foster dad as an outright murderer. The type to cover up a mistake, no matter how grievous, that is a possibility, but I just don't see killer on him.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    But a later model beamer would have a built in blue tooth speaker and that would be ok. I believe a one ear headphone, wired or bluetooth is acceptable as well. I just went through all of this because where I live the law is county by county and I ended up getting a bluetooth speaker.

    I have not noticed the foster dad being cocky or arrogant either. He seems genuine to me. Ony time will tell.

    Praying that Hassani is recovered safely. I don't get the feeling that either of the foster parents is involved (I could be totally wrong). Even if they're not involved, if Hassani was abducted, I'm afraid of the outcome. I think in my heart, I am wishing bio-dad swooped in and took Hasanni home with him to care for him. Maybe it's wishful thinking on my part but I just want Hassani safe.

    Just wanted to add my prayers for little Hassani. He is such a handsome boy and I am praying everyday that he is found safe somewhere.
    Happy New Years

    I never think about race at all. To me this is a precious small child who is missing and must be found.

    As for the foster Dad Ross, I do not think of race in the least. No matter what color he is, I do not like or believe his convoluted story.

    I think the cockiness is his persona.

    There could have been an accident or negligence on Ross part and he is covering it up. If that is the case, he turned it into a worse case scenario than it had to be. I am just saying that I do not believe his story. It does not make sense. JMO

    Did anyone else find him? Or the Aunt/Foster mother for that matter? TIA I'm very confused.

    I did try to find info on him, too, and could not. OR the previous two LWR's. Very odd . . . . Have we heard anything about any of his other family?

    Sorry if someone already responded to this, I'm just catching up, but yes, it is illegal to talk on a cell phone while driving unless you have a Bluetooth--i.e. cell phone is not supposed to be in your hand, clapped over your ear. The CHP has just declared they are going to start enforcing this law more, since people kept on doing it anyhow and weren't getting stopped.

    If he is a consultant it seems like this would require a lot of phone networking and thus you'd think he would have a Bluetooth.

    In an interview with KTVU, Ross said he believes someone took Hasanni and he had a message for them.

    "Drop him off anywhere. My son he wouldn't realize; he wouldn't remember you, said Ross. "People have come in and out of his life all his life. Drop him off, let him go, don't harm him. And you know what? I will leave it like that. The biggest thing I'm having a hard time with is I screwed up."

    Well, this trips me up. This seems to be something a parent would say when their child really does go missing. But, then there's this . . . .


    An Oakland homicide detective has been assigned to the case of Hassani Campbell, the 5-year-old disabled Fremont boy who was reported missing Monday afternoon, police said.

    The move came a day after Louis Ross, the boy's foster father, took a polygraph test.
    Just sayin . . . . .

    Could be a way to keep himself from crying in public, which many men are loathe to do.

    I didn't see the interviews. Judging by the reports of the case, I think it is justified to suspect the parents, just by stats alone. At the same time, I have always been leery of flinging stones at someone already going through hell (if they are innocent). We have to keep both equally compelling priorities in mind, and try to proceed the best way we can walking that fine line. And, either way, be prepared to handle being wrong.

    Bottom line: We all want Hassani safe and sound. I hope the dad is right, and Hassani is not scared... It's been so long... Never does the clock tick so loud and ominously as when a baby is missing.

    Little kids can move so fast! Once I was at a park where a mother turned her back for just seconds and her app. 2 yr old got across one lane of traffic and was heading straight toward a moving bus-- luckily the driver saw him and someone grabbed the boy.

    But Hassani had to watch his feet and concentrate while he walked, so he couldn't have gone too far on his own--besides, there would have been no options except for him to go either way on College Ave since the alley is small and appears to dead-end.

    I checked Megan's List and there are quite a few child molesters in the vicinity...of course, one could just have been passing through and not necessarily live nearby.

    I agree with you...I know Ross or Mr. Ross as we call him in class. He is very well-educated and would never hurt anyone, always been a gentleman. I truly hope they can prove him innocent.

    Thank you for your input, jericai. Is there anything else you could tell us about Mr. Ross? I saw his interview last night on Nancy Grace and have to say that I thought his explanation sounded pretty credible.

    I'm new to this site but I live in Ardenwood on the other side of the Karl Nordvik Park from Hassani's house. His house is about a 2 minute walk from my house. I saw the park search and dogs. Yesterday they were searching Coyote Hills Park. This is an enormous reserve but there is a security camera on the front gate that would deter someone from driving in. I don't think the camera works but it is new and would deter someone. (I'm a member of East Bay Parks and they are trying to get people to pay the entry fee with the camera) It is marshland, dry grassy hills and shallow water. There are other means of accessing the park on foot but it would be difficult while carrying someone. It would be impossible to access the bay while carrying someone on foot unnoticed. There is a farm that is not being worked in front of Coyote Hills. There is also a quarry. My concern is Don Edwards reserve down the road 1 minute which has marshes, salt ponds, and a road all of the way down to a desolate fishing pier leading into the bay. There are no cameras and anyone can drive right in. The Ardenwood Farm is also located behind his house and while it has some deserted areas it is pretty well traveled and has fences. There are also a ton of shallow canals in the area, some empty land for sale, and empty office buildings. My heart aches for this little boy and I don't buy foster father's or mother's story at all. How could she not take a polygraph? Who leaves a small child outside a car in an alley in Oakland? Who is wearing a sweatsuit in August? This is definitely way too close to home.

    I hope this doesn't come out wrong but I'm curious.
    IMO, Jennifer and Louis both speak with a slight foreign accent,yet have names like Campbell and Ross.
    I know it doesn't mean anything, it just kinda struck me as strange, especially after finding a name linked to the house.
    Look at the name under the pic.
    And again I know it has nothing to do with anything, I just thought it was interesting.

    At the very least you'll see what this home sold for less than a year ago.
    They were sitting on that same couch for their interview, right ?
    http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/59...25057465_zpid/
    At first, I also noticed, or thought I noticed, slight accents; sometimes people from some Caribbean islands, or the Bahamas, have Anglo sounding last names. But in later interviews, they didn't seem to have any accent at all.

    Fremont, CA has a very large Indian and middle Eastern population-- I am assuming the Indian name connected with the house was the previous owner or the realtor and doesn't have anything to do with Ross or Campbell. If I read the link correctly.
    Thanks for the link, it is interesting.

    Ardenwood is almost entirely Indian and Asian. There are a few others but not many. I looked at the Zillow listing. I would say that there house worth has probably dropped 50k since they bought it. We bought 5 years ago so ours is still worth more than we paid but I can't imagine that their is. Also, Roxie Ter is a very small street so I can't imagine that no one would have recognized the children.

    The homicide det. being assigned disturbs me too. We aren't talking about some tiny little locale where homicide is also sex crimes, missing kids and traffic.

    They know something that we don't.

    ITA. And landfills have been notified to keep an eye out for a body and the searches are focused near where Hassani lived or wherever the foster dad traveled to.

    Has a timeline been pinned down for the day he went missing and maybe the prior day? I still would love to hear from someone that had actually seen Hassani in the few days prior to the "kidnapping"

    On the link I just posted, it has "language: n/a."

    Do we have info on how well Hassani can speak or if he has any distinguishing speech impediments?
