    Thank you for the pictures MBL. They sure give a better feeling for the area. The river didn't look that wide from the google maps, even zooming in. I hope the water recedes tomorrow and searchers can get back out there safely.

    I don't know when those google photos were taken, but feel it was before the "widening" project

    http://www.saw.usace.army.mil/Author...anoke/Main.htm

    This widening has been completed thru the area where Aveion went missing

    The link to your album isn't working for me...

    I found these pics of the flood back in '04 (remnants of hurricane jeanne).

    Search for Aveion has moved to the Smith Gap landfill in Roanoke Co.

    We've been speculating for days this is where they should be searching...

    I am so glad that they have finally decided to search there. Praying that it wont be long now before Aveion is found.

    I know that they have always at least considered the possibility that he could be there; remember early reports from when he first disappeared stated that people were seen in the Food Lion parking lot? As for why they've focused so much on the river, I'm not sure. Maybe because the landfill wasn't going anywhere, but if he was in the river, they had to search that immediately or his body could be carried anywhere...I know that they "marked off" the area of the landfill where the trash from that area went and no new trash has been dumped there since, so hopefully if he's there, they'll find him.

    So sad and frustrating that SOMEONE knows where he is and wont talk...

    I wonder if the dumpster for the Food Lion is visible from the back of Aveion's "home"?

    (I use home as a loose term.. this was clearly not a safe place to lay his head at night..) My prayers and thoughts are with this little boy and I hope he is brought back to people who LOVE him soon...)

    I took more pictures of the river today...but it's going to be a while before I can get them posted. The river has now gone back within it's banks (just barely)...but there's still a lot of water flowing that normally isn't there.

    Thanks for taking alll the pics, MBL...I wish I could view your album!
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    From the article it looks like they have been searching the landfill, but hadn't yet released that information to the public. I'm so glad they started the search there before we knew about it.

    I take it the POS step monster is still not providing LE with any information about where he dumped this childs body. I can't say how steamed that makes me. It gets me sooooo angry. It's too bad, LE can't dangle him from a rope around his ankle over the Roanoke River (after some alligators are added) until he fesses up.

    Happy Birthday in Heaven Aveion. I promise I will never forget you and we will continue to fight for you until you receive justice!

    Cubby - that's what I did several times & it doesn't work for me.

    Excellent points snoelle! Now I bet he put that child in a dumpster at the food lion. Remember when he was saying Aveion couldn't regulate his body heat? There were bits and pieces of BL's story that was telling the truth! Now I am also thinking, it is likely the description of the clothing the fake kidnappers wore is probably a description of what Aveion was really wearing and not the yellow sponge bob jammies. While the weather would certainly make those jammies muddy and dirty pretty quickly, I really have a feeling BL would NOT have put that child out in bright yellow pajamas which may become exposed and possibly easier to spot.

    I think those searching, should take a good look at the description of the fake kidnappers and look for those color clothes, etc.

    I hope BL is already getting a little of his with his fellow jail inmates!

    thanks. MBL, do you have your album set up for only those on your friends list? Perhaps you should check your user profile to make sure all users can see the album.

    Oh God PLEASE tell me they are not just now starting to search there...

    ETA: I should have read the link first lol.

    On January 16, 2010, investigators identified trash from Roanoke in the Smith Gap Landfill operated by the Roanoke Valley Resource Authority. This trash was isolated and contained within the landfill to prevent further contamination from other trash.

    So they didn't believe his story from the start, either.

    This is for Aveion. I know 2.5-3 is a little young for Sponge Bob, and I remember when my son was Aveions age, he really loved Blue's Clues, so found this especially for Aveion.

    Hope you are having a fantastic party in heaven today!

    We aren't giong to give up finding you, and getting justice for you!

    The other one I found, had a balloon. Couldn't figure out how to copy it here properly, so found the above pic instead.

    New pictures have been added to show the difference from the flood to today. Quite a change. Water is still really high but is back within its banks. So sorry it has taken me so long to get these pics out...it's been a really bad day. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

    I have made sure that my album was public and it is. I'm not sure why everyone is not able to access it - unless WS was having some kind of glitch going on.
