RE child trafficking
This is the post I posted last night from the comments section of the following link-
This happened in Jacksonville, Fl

http://www.news4jax.com/news/21342995/detail.html

audreymaryjane
Having had my daughter be attempted to be taken right out of my arms eleven years ago in a Walgreen's parking lot in Atlantic Beach, Jax FL. Luckily I was strong enough to get away with my daughter who at the time was only a few weeks old. After reporting it to the police I was made aware of the under cover investigation going on in Jacksonville for child trafficking through the ports. Anywhere there are ports will always have an increase danger for child trafficking, because Jacksonville does have a large port we are at higher risk.

Nor are native-born Americans immune from slavers; many are stolen or enticed from the streets of their own cities and towns. Some sources, including the federal government, estimate in the hundreds of thousands the number of U.S. citizens primarily children at risk of being caught in slavery annually. Although these figures may be inflated, the precise number of slaves in the United States, whether trafficked in from other countries or enslaved from our own population, is simply not known. The simple truth is, were looking at a crime that lives in the shadows; its hard to count what you cant find. <snipped>

Kimster, I just read up on human trafficking too. It's unreal that this is such a huge, but under reported epidemic. She is so young though, I mean, she can't be walking the streets-do they have homes that these kids are warehoused in? This is so sick I don't really want to investigate this more.
Nite nite, kids
Maybe tomorrow we will have good news regarding Haleigh, Somer and Ghassane.

Today, he is very outspoken about what is right and isn't afraid to speak up. When he heard some people were selling drugs in town, he went to their house and told them to cut it out! I wondered why he would step out like that at the time and now I know.
I know that it was 30 years ago. It still needs to be reported to LE.

justbeachy - what a wonderful way to use your Wednesday - helping to bring Somer home. Thanks to you, and all the volunteers, who are selflessly going out to search. You are all so brave! Take good care of yourselves, keep hydrated, eat well, stay safe, and we will see you this evening on the Somer thread.

Graham man awaits return of missing daughter
Somer Thompson

Posted: Oct. 20 11:42 p.m.
Updated: Today at 12:13 a.m.

Graham, N.C. — A daylong search for a missing 7-year-old Florida girl who vanished on her way home from school Monday has produced more than 150 leads, but the child remained missing Tuesday and officials said they suspect foul play.

More than 100 Clay County, Fla., deputies, law enforcement officers from neighboring counties and the FBI scoured a residential Orange Park neighborhood looking for Somer Thompson.

"I can't describe how that feels. It feels like somebody just took the life out of you," said Sam Thompson, Somer's father.

Sam Thompson, an Iraq War veteran, lives in Graham, North Carolina. He is recuperating from an accident that left him in a wheelchair. [respectfully snipped}

A devastating accident and now Somers is missing..this family deserves a break...let's bring this beautiful child home! justice for Somers!

I think the mother and father and the boyfriend are all without suspision .The only thing we should be looking at is that someone did try to kidnap a child within a BLOCK of where she dissapearred ...This is the 700 pound elephant in the room ...This is the only thing we should be focusing on at this time ...!!! Can someone link the astrology chart that Tuba did,, that is pretty much the only real lead we have if the LE cant come up with anything

Two days of searching in Orange Park and there is still no sign of Somer Renee Thompson.

Somer's mom, Deana Thompson, pleaded for her daughter's safe return at a candelight vigil Tuesday night.

"If anybody has her, please let her go. Pray for her, that she comes home".

Investigators still aren't sure why Somer went missing.

A search is under way for another missing little girl in northeast Florida.

Second-grader Somer Renee Thompson did not return from her Clay County school on Monday afternoon. She lives in the Grove Park neighborhood of Orange Park and was last seen a few blocks from her home at about 2:45 p.m., according to the Clay County Sheriff's Office.

In a news release, the Sheriff's Office said Somer's mother was walking through her neighborhood looking for Somer when she flagged down a passing deputy and reported the 7-year-old was missing. Somer had reportedly been walking home with her sister and friends but ran ahead of them heading toward home.

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

ORANGE PARK, FL -- Somer Thompson's mom, Diena Thompson, will appear on all three network morning shows this morning.

The parking lot at Orange Park's Town Hall is filled with trucks, as crews prepare for the interviews inside council chambers.

Thompson will appear on Good Morning America on ABC and The Today Show on NBC.

A reporter for NBC News and several network news producers are also in Orange Park this morning.

I can't even watch another mom right now. I am just going to keep praying for Somer's safe return, as well as all of the other missing babies. My youngest daughter is 6 1/2 yo. As I have said too many times, I would never let her or even my 12 yo and 14 yo walk anywhere without an adult. I know in some people's opinion that makes me paranoid, over-protective, or a "hover mother", but I don't care. When it comes to my babies, I will do anything and everything to keep them safe.

Police had already been investigating a separate child abduction attempt two weeks ago in which the potential abductor tried to lure a girl into a car, one block away from the spot where Somer was last seen.

Beseler said today that authorities had located both the car and the individual and are "pretty confident" the cases are not connected.

It is so sad we can't let our children out to play, walk home from school or go visit a friend without parents walking them.

Well that information is huge and they really need to publicize that more. I think people are looking for a blue car, and they need to know that it isn't necessary to waste their time looking if it has been found.

O/T, I know this boy's name was brought up in this thread as missing, he was found and is safe.

Missing boy found safe in Aurora

DENVER - A boy who was missing from his home in Denver since Monday afternoon was found safe in Aurora early Wednesday. Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson says the boy appeared to be fine.
