Okay I'm finally caught up and I just don't know about the backpack now. I was going mainly on LE's saying there wasn't one but there have been very good points about LE holding stuff back.
I had a dream last night that Sandra was found alive and I was crying so hard I could hardly type on WS how happy I was. I kept messing up all the letters. (Maybe that's a sign I'm here too much if I dream about writing posts). Anyway I wish it wasn't a dream and I'm very scared for this little girl!!!!

doors17 from the TracyPress is not joining here thanks to people who are on there trashing the whole website and calling posters out. Anyway she's posted more info about where Sandra was seen walking:

To answer Tinkerbell38 question we have 4 streets that run north to south. And we have two streets that run east to west. The east to west streets are at the front of the park and the back. In the video at the very end she was going south towards the end of the park. So if anyone took her by car they could have gone around the park on any of the other 4 streets to get out. The street she lives on is very busy. Behind the two walls where we wash our cars is all of our mailboxes, which is why it's has the most traffic.

To Guest, I did look at that website, but I didn't post anything there because all I can do is just repeat what I've said here and I noticed that someone was coping and pasting what I said here, which is fine with me, but I don't really have anything to add.

To Justine, at the beginning of the tape, when you first see her coming out between the two parked cars is the direction behind her where the man who was taken in for questioning on Friday lives, but I don't know if that's where she was coming from.

I'm sure most of you know this, but the grandfather put up the camera about three weeks ago because someone slashed his tires. With the workers and painters who have been working on the home I was telling you about the police must know about them and I'm sure they were questioned.

Maybe I'm looking too deep at this video but as she coming out she seems very happy and whoever caught her attention her body language to me seems to hesitate with a attitude of well okay I'll come over but with no enthusiasm to who she going to.
Quote:
No, we don't have anyone who documents who comes in. Our manager rides around in a golf cart and he doesn't allow salesmen or ice cream trucks to enter. When we do have guest staying for the evening or a few days we let him know their plate numbers and what kind of a car they do have, so he'll know that it's okay for someone to park in the guest spots in front and around the club house. It's important for him to know so he doesn't think it's a stolen car that was left there since were so close to the freeway, and doesn't have a guest of ours have their car towed away.

Too bad people have trash WS. I can't imagine what they would find fault with, this is an excellent well managed site! Anyway, I totally agree with the body language there is a slight hesitation, she looks back for a sec. at her house and than continues. That is not a good sign.

In the actual moving video, you can see the foliage blowing around slightly, so it must have been somewhat windy at that time.

sad that there is no news today on finding Sandra alive. If she did run away, hoping, where would she go! Someone has to know something....seen something. If she ran away her little friends would probably know and they would know where her hiding spots are. Why haven't they changed this to an abduction case. This little girl didn't drive herself out of that mobile home park!

Part of the problem might be that it's been reported she didn't have that many friends, and the one child she was supposedly last with is only 5 y/o, so I don't know how much information they could provide. In other words, her own family might know more than friends would, about where she could've gone, IF she left on her own. I still think it's someone who watched her often, noticed she wandered around alone, and took advantage of the opportunity to abduct her. MOO

Just a Thought....

Do you think perhaps Sandra's mother was counting on her older children to watch out for Sandra that afternoon? There may have been some miscommunication about who was actually in charge of the 8-year-old that didn't become apparent until it was getting dark.

Does her mother have a job? Has there been any information re: the whereabouts of the older siblings that afternoon? (Not to implicate them in any way, but just wondering if they were around the house and the mom might have thought they would take care of Sandra, without any actual agreement being verbalized; after all, they all apparently thought it was a safe neighborhood.)

In the camera footage stills, that white ball/light has sort of a shadow around it, almost like a black halo, similar to what looks like a backpack on Sandra. I'm thinking that her alleged purse or backpack is actually just a trick being played by the resolution of the camera.

I agree, good eyes.

Well I guess we have to error on the side of the police lol. I'm sure they interviewed the mom and found that Sandra's back pack was at home or something. Although I could swear just by the way she is walking, position of her hand and the "shadow" it seriously does look like a bag/purse/ something she was carrying on her back.

There is no backpack in *her* shadow on the ground, not that I can tell. Don't know if that's been mentioned before.

I noticed that too but if it isn't a backpack then what the heck is it? It can't be another shadow...it's in the wrong position. I suppose it could be the shadowing from the pixels, the grain of the video, like the black around the light.
I know when I watch it, it moves as she moves and it's an odd shape to be a shadow. It's driving me nuts and I wish LE would just come out with it if it is a backpack. Maybe they think if they release that info that it will look more like she did run away and community support will be less than it is now. I dunno





This is the last of "the backpack/whatever it is" pics...I promise

I definitely understand why LE and all of us are confused as to the whole backpack thing... but I'm thinking that if LE decided there's nothing there, then there's probably nothing there. I think we should be trying to figure out who lives next door to her.

I've watched this so many times. In the very beginning, you see nothing. But then as she hops and skips, the shape appears, as if she did have a backpack on and it slipped around as she was skipping.

Has anyone else listened to the presser from this afternoon? I don't have a link, sorry?

I am interested in hearing the thoughts of others regarding the FBI analysis on this issue and also the discussion about the developments.

Thanks,

Salem

I kinda agree with you. However, in the presser this afternoon, LE said the release of the video had NOT resulted in the info they were looking for. Also said FBI was still analyzing something - I thought it was the backpack question, and that developments were being made but he could not tell us what those developments were.

I think the last update said LE has not made a decision on the backpack but I do think you are right about focusing on who the neighbor is...the backpack thing is just driving me nuts...I'm weird like that...
