And he brought Shasta back home after 7 weeks of hell on earth but I find that highly unlikely to happen in this case.

IMO
As I recall, LE couldn't get past focusing on Steve Groene. As I recall, he'd had some run-ins with the law, he didn't have a tight alibi for the night in question and that kept LE so tightly focused on him that they didn't really seem to look anywhere else.

I can't even begin to try to imagine Mr Groene's frustration, knowing he was innocent and yet unable to convince LE.

I believe I've read that in a significant percentage of child abductions by strangers, the child is released alive. Probably because if the child did not know the abductor, the perp felt more confident that LE wouldn't be able to connect the perp with the crime.

Wonder if we will hear about the evidence that was sent to crime lab in Ackeny for testing. But i bet LE wont say. Understandable though.

It does seem planned, and for a quick execution of the plan the girls probably had to be familiar with the person(s) they are with.
If TWO people were involved, then here is a possibility (even if far fetched).
An abductor may have lured the kids and the bikes into his vehicle.
Then driven the bikes to a vehicle, where someone was waiting (perhaps in the bush near the highway where the hole in the fence is?) to park the bikes (place / drop whichever applies) and the purse in that area. Then the driver speeds away, and the guy in the park having just parked the bikes walks away.... and meets up the other guy later (?) or goes home or whatever.

Not directed toward you CN2...and appreciate you updating us with any media links, but seem the media is on a roll with incorrect reporting this morning. The reporter stated the bikes were found on the banks of the lake rather the trail.

I also do not believe the FBI would carry on with the investigation in this manner if they know the girls are safe with appropriate adults, and not really missing. They would, IMO, be obliged to tell the public they are no longer missing but that the suspect(s) are at large, and that they need help from the community, etc...people do searches on their own, regardless of what LE says, and there could be injuries, people getting lost, etc...much possible liability, if not legally, at least morally.

My opinion is that the FBI is NOT obligated to tell us anything during an active investigation. This again is why I think the statement that they believe they are alive is so unusual. My sense is that this is a huge investigation, involving lots of individuals who have played a part in some sort of criminal activity. The disappearance of these girls is one facet of the criminal enterprise target, and just might have included child trafficking. I think they may have been handed off to a series of individuals, and at some point the FBI was able to get them to a safe house of sorts to protect them from further harm while they track down all the folks who had anything to do with it. In this scenario, I believe they would not necessarily tell the family anything other than they believe the girls are alive because some members of the family might also be a part of the criminal enterprise. And they sure wouldn't tell the public because that could compromise the identity of any confidential informant that helped get the girls to the safe place.

Possible? Probable?

Thanks for posting the link, just watched it.

In it, Heather says the girls usually stay close to home.
A thought occurred to me that maybe they went there to meet someone.
The "bike video" seems to show them riding quickly towards their destination.

I deleted my FB, so I can't see what others have mentioned in the past, recent FB friends etc.

I had asked earlier about the $50,000 reward because i'm curious. MS reward is $25,000. Just seems a bit odd to me.

Also, I never realized the Meth thing was such a huge problem in the "Heartland".

In another interview of Elizabeth's parents that I recently saw, Elizabeth's Mom described LE as treating them as one would a family member.

That's pretty specific, hopefully the man will come forward.

Forgive me if this has been asked before - is there an area on Meyers Lake where you can rent paddle boats, fishing boats, canoes, etc.? Or would a paddle boater have to bring his own boat?

I believe the reward is from private donations and Crime Stoppers. I'll look to see if I can find a link to that, but I know I've read that recently.

ETA: here's the link, and it says anonymous donations, not private donations.

I couldn't agree more. Meth is a huge problem here.

I'm not good at transcribing. She basically said the girls usually rode their bikes on the block.

She said when others are not cooperating, their (LE?) focus needs to be on other issues. She asks that whoever may be holding them to please release them somewhere safe; gas station, Target etc.

There is not a rental area. Some homeowners have paddleboats, especially in the canal.

I am puzzled as to how this paddle boat did not get mentioned waaaay before this. Iwould have bet that if anyone at all was within sight of that lake and there was someone paddle-boating it would be one of the first things they mentioned when they found out the girls were missing!

Hmmm...OlliePop said that the unfinished house/garage near the lake was used to store recreational equipment, I believe he said something like "big boy toys". I wonder if there is a paddle boat in there?

This will sound far-fetched, but I've wondered if there might be some sort of inconspicuous underground shelter below that strange structure, like a hidden cellar or tornado shelter. It would have been much easier to conceal them somewhere very near the lake without being seen than it would be to transport them elsewhere. Surely the dogs would had picked up the scent if the girls were there, right?

Thanks for the Today show video link, PattyG. It was "the mother of one of the girls" who was asked to take another polygraph. I'm guessing that it's Lyric's mother. Methinks that she knows more than she's telling about where the girls are and what has happened to them.

My assumption is that LE learned of the paddle boater from others in response to their request for info from anyone at the lake the day the girls went missing.

A paddle boat can get fairly close to shore, so maybe LE wants to know what the man might have seen, or not seen, that day.

Misty (Lyric's Mom), in this morning's Today Show's interview, mentioned that "we" and she does not think it's anyone that the family knows; that someone saw the girls playing.

From what I understand, Lyric's mother's poly was inconclusive. Now this is just a "rumor" as I think it was posted yesterday that she posted this on Facebook. However, since it is stated she is going for another poly, I guess it is now fact.

I've felt it all along, but after this recent interview with DC and HC, I'm sensing a very real disconnect between the two sets of parents. I am hoping that they can all come together and draw strength from each other.
