Questions:

Does Doug have relatives living near Venus' parents?

Where were the two vehicles found?

Did Venus have possession of one of the vehicles after she left Doug or did he have possession of both vehicles before Venus disappeared?

Who is providing the alibi for Doug?

Could he have flown between Newport News and, say, Kalamazoo undetected?

So many questions about this guy that deserve answers. THIS ARTICLE flat-out says that police think that Doug abducted Venus. I think he did, too, but it'd be great to see someone dig a little bit and do more detailed reporting.

That article also says (paraphrasing) that Venus was abducted last week and douglas was found later in the week. We already know he was reached by phone later that evening, so I wonder if it took LE days to physically locate him?
And yes I would love to see more detailed articles. This is c-rap that she's been gone this long and no one either in MI or VA has any lenghty reporting for this crime. I checked the VA papers last night and could'nt find anything re: douglas or the abduction. Where are the microphones being pushed at douglas asking where his wife(ex) is??
I pray Venus is found just tied up in his trunk alive but I fear after all the other alligations w/ him that he had no intentions of her staying alive. Especially after the alligations of abuse to one of their kids. Her parents feared he would just bust down the door one day and grab her, I don't doubt that either. Thank goodness he did'nt grab the kids too! imo
Praying this morning that Venus is found, unharmed and returned to her family.

"Police first believed that Stewart might have been abducted by her estranged husband, Douglas Harrie Steward, 29, but authorities have talked with him and he says he had nothing to do with her disappearance."

Of course he said that. But does LE believe it??

Venus Stewart (PICTURES): Michigan Mom Feared Kidnapped from Parents' Home
May 5, 2010 6:50 AM

"There's been no sign, no word, no anything," Lt. Mike Risko told CBS affiliate WWMT. "It's as if she disappeared from the face of the earth."

snip

"There is evidence that there was a struggle," Lt. Risko told the station. "We do not believe she left of her own free will."

snip

Police say detectives are trying to determine Doug Stewart's alibi for April 26 and the days leading to Venus' disappearance. Lt. Risko says all investigators' contact with Doug Stewart is through his lawyer.

New Information In Missing Bronson Grad Case
Posted Wednesday May 5, 2010 1 hour, 25 minutes ago

Information from a request for a warrant to inspect her husbandís pick-up truck obtained by CNN claims a truck like it was seen in the area on the morning of her disappearance. They want to compare tire tracks left at the scene and inspect it for evidence that it may have been in Michigan. Stewart insists he never left Virginia and State Police Lt. Michael Risko says for now his alibi checks out. The request was signed by the judge and filed on Monday.

That will at least confirm whether the truck was used.

I'd really like to know his alibi and who witnessed him in VA that morning.

Good. I hope they find a connection. This morning I saw the wndu article posted earlier, that is the first local coverage I've seen of this.

couple of more questions

We still don't know what she was mailing right ?

Since it seems husband had both cars. did she sometimes or regularly take her mom to work to keep her car ?

since it was said on nancy grace... she went to mail box as her mom was going to work.

I cant see this being a random act somebody had to know her schedule

if this turns out to be a random act, I guess i will change my routine, I usually go to the mail box at the same time. I live on a quiet street. so i quess it could happen

Here is some of the transcripts from NG show lastnight:

Aired May 4, 2010 - 20:00:00

SNIPPED<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< <

What more do we know tonight, John McNeill?

JOHN MCNEILL, NEWS DIRECTOR, WKZO NEWSRADIO: Well, we have learned from a filing for a search warrant for Douglas Stewart`s pickup that they may have a lot more evidence than they`ve talked about previous to this. We`re hearing about the discovery of a clear plastic packaging in the driveway that may have been used to cover a tarp.
We`re learning that they have the tire tracks taken from a field nearby, an eyewitness account of a pickup in a field nearby, with a white male crouching behind it about the time of the disappearance.
We`re hearing that -- or we`re reading in this request for a warrant that they want to match the tire patterns that they found in the field with the ones on Douglas Stewart`s pickup truck. That the general tread pattern is similar, but they need to match the actual tires.

This is all new information that we didn`t hear about before. The truck description matches the eyewitness account. It`s a crew cab, a four- wheel pickup truck, light in color, very similar to the Dodge Ram that Douglas Stewart drives.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

GRACE: Mr. And Mrs. McComb, joining us tonight. These are Venus Rose Stewart`s parents.

To Miss McComb. Miss McComb, when we`re talking about a white male crouched down beside a pickup truck with a crew cab, resembles a Dodge Ram, where is that field in relation to your home?

T. MCCOMB: Across the street like kitty corner in a vacant lot.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

GRACE: Straight out to Sergeant Scott Haines, sheriff`s officer, Santa Rosa County, Florida.

Sergeant, what about the tread pattern? How often do you make those kind of comparisons?

SGT. SCOTT HAINES, SHERIFF`S OFFICER, SANTA ROSA COUNTY, FL.: Those type of comparisons are actually extremely helpful. Tires are very unique in the different nicks that they may have on them, the wear patterns, the placement on the vehicle, whether on the front or the real.

They`re all very unique depending on what type of abuse they`ve had, what they`ve hit. If you get a good tire impression, you can match it specifically up to any tire on a vehicle. So if they do have good tire impressions and they have the actual tire, they can definitely match up an identical tire.

GRACE: With us, Sergeant Scott Haines.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GRACE: Ellie Jostad, weigh in.

JOSTAD: Nancy, we know that the husband claims that he`s been in Virginia the whole time but police are testing that truck, looking for any evidence that might have been in Michigan. They`re looking for soil, insects, fibers that would link it to Michigan.

GRACE: Back to Larry and Therese McComb, Venus Stewart`s parents. I know that you are keeping the children, the two little girls, safe. How are they without their mommy?

T. MCCOMB: They ask a lot about her. They don`t understand. The 5- year-old accidentally seen her on TV. And she said, why is mommy with daddy? She was scared. That scared her. She goes, why is mommy with daddy? She didn`t understand.

Have the same thoughts about Douglas as I do with Josh P. Can you believe they are both still walking around? Although in this case, I believe an arrest will soon be made! I hope! moo

ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Authorities are out in Saint Joseph County, searching for Venus Stewart.

Michigan State Police in White Pigeon tell Newschannel 3 that teams are searching Adams Lake.

They are using side scan sonar to go through the water.

This is the same area where they conducted a foot search last week.

Stewart, a mother of two, has been missing over a week now.

Michigan State Police believe she may have been kidnapped from her parents' home in Colon Township.

Stewart's estranged husband lives in Virginia and has been questioned by authorities.

Police dive team combs Adams Lake near Colon in search for Venus Stewart

May 05, 2010, 3:21PM

“We’re just looking for evidence of Venus Stewart’s disappearance,” Risko said.
While the dive team conducted its search Wednesday, Risko said MSP crime lab personnel were flying to Virginia to conduct searches of a Mercury sedan and Dodge Ram pickup truck that are both registered to Douglas Stewart.

Police obtained search warrants for the vehicles, which were being held Wednesday by Newport News police, the lieutenant said.

Are the children school age? If the husband did abduct Venus, why would he think she would come out of the house at that time of day? Maybe he was hoping to get a peek at the children and when Venus went outside, he couldn't help but confront her, wanting to talk to her. When she refused, he grabbed her just to talk and things went really wrong after that.

I have to assume it was light at that time of the morning. Abducting Venus in "broad daylight" is so strange to me.

It seems there's a better chance of this case getting solved than the Susan Powell - Josh Powell matter.

One of the children may be in kindergarten, but the other is too young for school.

Venus was taken right after her mother left the house for work that morning (Monday morning). Since the husband probably knew the family's schuedule, he knew the mother would be gone. Maybe he planned on knocking on the door and taking Venus, then she comes out and makes it easier for him.

It just seems so brazen, especially since the stepfather was home! I do think I read the area where she was isn't visible from the house though.

I had a boyfriend who would have done something like that and I was terrified of him. I had to leave the town I grew up with and the only people who knew where I went were my parents, sister and my cousin. Nobody else in town knew. This stalker would drive to my parents home every day to check the mail box, hide in the bushes and wait around the corner in a car.

One time, I hid at the neighbor's house when my parents weren't home and when I wouldn't answer the door, he crawled in a bedroom window and waited there all night. (My parents were out of town.)

Back then, people just didn't call the police and weren't aware of what stalking was.

I was told that I would never be able to hide from this man. Fortunately, I got away before I ended up dead!

I'm sorry you had to go through that. I guess until you have met someone like this, it's hard to imagine what lengths they would go to.

Venus made a will out three weeks before this abduction, according to her parents. She filed for an order of protection in February, stating that she was afraid for her life.

Her father was home asleep, it sounded like he might work a night shift, but I am not sure.
