You are welcome! Thought before the presser, we needed to move the discussion to a new one.

Police on Friday issued Vermont's first-ever Amber Alert, a missing-person report extensively sent to media and even to cell phone customers who have signed up to receive such messages. Thomas said Sunday authorities had received more than 150 tips in response to that notification.

http://www.rutlandherald.com/apps/pb...WS04/806300391

Being this is the first Amber Alert in the state, does it mean there haven't been other endangered missing children or does it mean they are so stringent with the recommended guidelines that they have failed to use it?

I have found other states that take the guidelines as the actual rules which should be done on a case by case basis. This is the way the guidelines were intended to be used, imo. Other states have learned to use them appropriately with much success.

http://www.wcax.com/global/story.asp?s=8576795 Same story, but thought I would post the website to keep up with updates on the presser. If you are like me, I forget their call letters.

I want to know who allowed this girl to be with this animal and I want the person charged. You do not allow your child to be with a rapist. EVER. I don't care if its dear Uncle Steve who just had that one incident 10 years ago, the freak is not safe!

Another example why we should never ever allow rapists out of jail.
It is possible the mother and father didn't know, but the step-father and grandparents must have. You are right tho. This man should not have been around any children for any reason and certainly not having them spend the nights at his house!

I can't believe that the mother would not have known about this, it was her sisters husband for petes sake. Not to mention, as others have said, this is a small town, word gets out. Can anyone find out how much time he did for the 93 crime? Then add on probation and the family didn't know? I'm not buying it. IMO

Take this for what it's worth, but there is a poster on the "In Sessions" boards, who claims it was common knowledge this guy was a RSO. She's from the local area where Brooke and her mom lives.

True, but why didn't it come out immediately when Brooke went missing if people knew? The small town theory should have kicked early on and it should have been the topic of discussion all over the internet. The first we caught wind of it was from Swannie, IIRC, when she was looking up RSOs in the area. (I don't think we knew at the time that he was the uncle tho.)

Like THAT wouldn't be front page news with him being the last one seen with Brooke?!

The poster I'm talking about on the In Sessions board is the first person to mention the uncle was a RSO. A couple of days ago. Then I saw it mentioned on here later. She is the one who said that people around the uncle knew about his past. Again..take it for what it's worth, she might assume people around him knew, because she and her family knew.

This is correct, I didn't know the uncles name ( had we known that every one of us would have had that posted) He stood out to me because of the kidnapping charge as well. I actually wrote his name down but didnt post it since I had nothing to back it up. When I saw what the uncles name was last night I could have fainted.

I also can't believe that the reporters didnt get wind of this either, they could have gotten the uncles name easily and wham!

I don't understand then how it didn't hit the press that he was a RSO! That is HUGE news in any missing person's case. Talk about sending up red flags! Maybe the locals should have made sure that someone called the media if they knew it.

Do we know if this guy was married at any time or has kids of his own? What does he do for a living? Anything?

Good idea asking her to come here. The mod over there, CW, is giving her a hard time.

I wonder if police can definitely link the missing items found to Brooke. I'd love to know if the MJ is the relative who found them.

We know, I think, that he is/was married to moms sister. And the cousin mentioned could be his son/daughter.
