According to this video interview with Ross and Campbell yesterday, social services has told them that even if Hassani is found, THEY WILL NOT GET EITHER OF THE CHILDREN BACK!!!
the video is in the video library and is labeled August 17th 2009 at 5:34 pm.

Sometimes a man can meet his destiny on the road he took to avoid it.
Police have received just 50 tips about possible sightings of 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell in the week since he was reported missing.
None of the tips or the searches of Oakland neighborhoods, the parklands of Coyote Hills near Fremont and the marshland area along the Hayward shoreline have turned up anything, police said.
There also is a lack of community support in the search for the missing boy with cerebral palsy. There were just a handful of people at a vigil this afternoon.
This comment ...only 50 tips...really bothered me. Aren't there usually hundreds of tips in a missing child case. Why so few in this instance?
watched the 10K reward video - 2nd video on top.

Please think long and hard before calling a child a 'run-a-way':
You might be giving a 'perk' to the 'perp'.

Thomason said police are still treating Hassani's disappearance as a missing persons case but as time goes on the chances of finding him alive may be dwindling.
He said on Saturday law enforcement officials and volunteers searched marshland and shoreline areas at the tip of West Winton Avenue in Hayward as well as Coyote Hills Regional Park in Fremont but didn't find anything significant.
Or it could be that local people are not supporting them because they don't believe in them.
Only a few turned up for the vigil, which supports the foster parents. Does anyone know how many showed up for the search, which would support Hassani?

I really think his name is spelled Hasanni. I remember someone mentioning that a missing poster for him had his name spelled "Hasanni," and we were thinking How could they misspell his name? But I think the media has spelled his name wrong from the beginning and now are not correcting themselves.
For some reason, it bugs me for his name to be universally misspelled, like it's not important.
Checking in on Hasanni to see if there is any news and there are very few tips and Hasanni has not been found. IIRC stats show that if a child goes missing at the hands of parents/cusodians the child is usually found within 2-3 miles of home and near water. Maybe we should draw a map showing all places within 3 miles of where Hasanni lived and any bodies of water within that radius - anybody local know of any bodies of water within 3 miles of Hasanni's residence?
Hasanni, little man give us a clue so we can find you.
How can Hasanni and his 18 month old sister have been in foster care for 2 years and then with LR and JC for 6-8 months?
I know I suck at math, I have the grades to prove it...but that doesn't add up no matter who you are.
ETA: And I think some of the anger in that video is because if CPS told them the kids aren't coming back to them, they may have also let them know that their rights to their own child are in danger. Which I almost guarantee is the case. These people will either lose their own child too, or they will have CPS so far up their butts the state will know what they ate for breakfast.
JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.
I got zero sleep, so I am off to bed, but I thought I would leave a parting thought:
In the video of the interview with bio mother, there is a very well maintained white bike in the middle of the apartment. Whose is it? Bio mother doesn't see, like the bike riding type, if you catch my drift. So, who lives with her? Why weren't they willing to appear on camera? That and that infant carrier, something isn't right on that end of this whole deal.

It sounds as if his "fight" for Hasanni to learn to write, etc, is partially an attempt to prove something about himself--like, "MY son CAN write, dam*it" --as if Hasanni is an extension of him (Ross) or something. But the attitude comes across so bullying and absolute. I could be wrong...
Hope I don't sound like I am playing devil's advocate, but lots of people do stupid things like leaving their kids alone for a couple of minutes and they are just lucky that the children don't get abducted or something terrible happens. IF Ross is innocent, it must be totally discouraging and depressing to find out you won't get your children back, anyhow.
