Exclamation GUAM - AMBER ALERT: Eric Tithim Wazhuth, 2, Dededo, 6 Sept 2008

From http://www.kuam.com/news/29940.aspx:


The Guam Police Department has issued an Amber Alert for a missing 2 year old boy who was last seen at a family party at Tanguisson Beach in Dededo Saturday (September 6, 2008) afternoon. Eric Tithim Wazhuth, a Yapese boy approximately 2 1/2" tall and weighing 100 pounds (???) with short, black, wavy hair was last seen wearing dark blue quick dry shorts and a sleeveless blue shirt.

His family reported him missing around 8:55 Saturday night. GPD Spokesperson Officer Allan Guzman says there are no suspects identified at this time and police and investigators have questioned individuals at the beach site.

GPD's Criminal Investigation Divisiona and SWAT agents along with patrol units, the Guam Fire Department's Rescue unit, Coast Guard and Navy HC5 are assisting in the search both on land and in the water.

I sure wish they could post a photo as the description is throwing me a bit--2 years old, 2 1/2 ft. tall and 100 LBS? I'm certainly not trying to be mean and pray that this little one is found safe, but could that me a misprint? They also didn't give very much information--who was he last seen with or by? Who was supposed to be watching this poor little guy?
I know that toddlers have a tendency to wonder so that's even more reason to watch them, especially on the beach. Prayers that he is found safe!

Good point. I didn't even catch that, and it's particularly unlikely as the child has been described in other sources as "having a slim build." Apparently, the child wandered off or was enticed away (that possibility is the reason for the AMBER Alert, which the GPD held off issuing until they determined that there IS a possibility of foul play) during some sort of social gathering/party at a beach. Definitely a reminder to keep more than a casual look on young kids.

FINALLY, a picture of the little guy! There is no way he's 100 lbs.

Baby Eric still missing

The search continues at this hour for a missing two-year-old boy who was last seen at a family party at Tanguisson Beach on Saturday afternoon. On land and at sea, the search for the missing toddler has been extensive.

[snip]

And after searching through the night, crews were still at it this morning in hopes of finding the missing Yapese toddler. Guam Police Department spokesman Officer Allan Guzman told KUAM News, "It's very difficult at this time. We've been searching throughout the night and we're working with the fire department to do a very, very extensive search through the jungle, the beach area and even in the waters."

Video about the search for Eric: http://www.kuam-media.com/flv_player...yer.php?vid=69

PRAYING THAT THIS IS NOT ERIC:

Coast Guard pulls child's body from waters off Cabras

The U.S. Coast Guard located a child's body in the waters off Guam. Coast Guard Lieutenant Lee Putnam tells KUAM around 12 noon, the Coast Guard Cutter Assateague found the body of a child 1.8 nautical miles North of Cabras Island. Lt. Putnam says the crew found the body of a male child while on patrol for another mission. He confirms the area was not part of the search pattern for the missing child reported at Tanguisson Beach.

The search meanwhile continued earlier today, both on land and sea, for 2 year old Eric Tithium Wazthuth who was last seen on Saturday evening at Tanguisson during a party. GPD Spokesperson Officer Allan Guzman said the search was looking more and more like a recovery. Until an autopsy is conducted, officials cannot confirm the identity of the body pulled from the waters today.
