This link gives a different report of what she was wearing.
You know, this happens SO OFTEN! Conflicting reports sent out in the beginning when this is the most CRUCIAL time to find these kids! Why do they have all these conflicting reports??????? ARgH!!!!
A blogger at this site claims she and her "brothers" play in her back yard. It sounds like Somer has a few siblings?
also, kimster, a comment from there trully touched me, so i wanted to send my condolences(sp)
so i clicked on her nic, and it took me to a 'pay to post/blog' site,,hhmm,,,guess i am so jaded from the anthony/cummings situations
i just think it is not looking good for this little girl, sigh

"She was last seen at 2:45 p.m. walking home from school near West Gano Avenue and Debarry Avenue. She was with her brother and friends, but separated from them, running ahead towards her home."
Now the sister is a brother! That has to be the quickest "operation" ever. The pink skull backpack morphed into a Hanna Montana one. That is some horrible reporting. I hope that tomorrow, if they haven't found her, they at least get the facts straight. Good night, all, and hopefully, tomorrow Somer and Haleigh will be found.
Something seems "off" about this story.
Just logged on and saw this case and thought "Please God, not again".
I read through all 11 pages of this thread, and, like always it seems, keep hearing conflicting reports about the kind of backpack she had (pink with skulls and hearts, or Hannah Montana) to what time this was reported into authorities (5, 5:30, 6:30, etc). I REALLY wish the media would just get the story verified and straight before reporting it.
Something seems off about this case, I agree with LoveMyDogs.
Updated and snipped:
CLAY COUNTY, FL -- The search for seven-year-old Somer Renee Thompson of Orange Park continues into a cold Tuesday morning.
Deputies with the Clay County Sheriff's Office want people to search everywhere around their homes for the missing girl.
The little girl hasn't been seen since Monday afternoon. The girl's mother notified the sheriff's office around 5 p.m. that her daughter had not returned home from school.
"Her mother began looking for her, and after about two hours, [she] flagged down a patrol car and reported that Somer did not come home this afternoon," said Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler.
Thompson is a second-grader at Grove Park Elementary. Police say she is a white female, 3 feet 5 inches tall and about 65 pounds. She has brown hair and was last seen wearing a cranberry colored jumpsuit with pink striped sleeves.
link to Somer's endangered missing poster-states that her backpack and lunchbox is purple Hannah Montana.
She is not listed under an Amber Alert-probably didn't meet the "criteria"-grrrrrr.
If the comment posted on the Jax news site is true (recent attempted abduction-license plate number reported)-I sure hope the vehicle and its owner has been tracked down.
Why does this stuff happen in FL so often? No offense to any Floridians intended.

praying for you Somer!
ok, so Somer was with friends and a twin brother. Father is in North Carolina...he has been accounted for... I'm hearing it on First coast news right now...
10 days ago... blue Nissan Sentra .... people in this car tried to lure a child into that car... they are not sure if this is connected or not...
sorry for the multiple posts but wanted to relay the info as I hear it.
i hope they find her this morning.
I work close by to were this little girl went missing. The search was huge last night and the community is really coming together. I just hope they find her. It was really cold last night for her to be out somewhere. I also work at an elementary school and it will be interesting to see if parents care enough to pick their children up today. I hope they will find her.
