    I showed the picture to my 11 yr old daughter earlier and asked what she thought it might be and she said a cooler. I was thinking it was an air conditioner lol.

    They were showing it on NG Live. It looked like a cooler to me too.
    I dont think Haleigh is inside, I think maybe evidence but not Haleigh, not that close to the bank, and if something is in that cooler it couldn't have been there for 15 months, because the tide would have carried it away or tossed it around, IMO.

    OK, not sure if you can see it. But this looks like some type of tank. After me cropping it. It looks to have a handle on the right side. One of the divers is holding it like a handle. I know I have seen these type of tanks somewhere, I just don't know where. It is large and to me it does not look like an oxygen tank. It almost looks like an old milk tank/jug from a farm.

    What might have been found when LE removed part of a wall in the MH? Was there some type of utility box missing? This is what comes to mind as I continue to ponder what the box might be.

    Ya, like another poster said, it kind of looks like handles. Maybe it sonar equipment and that is the handle. ???

    Here's a blown-up pic, but the quality is horrible.

    I agree with some ppl on here that said they didn't think the box was white because of how dirty the water is. Is it possible that this is a wooden box? The water would fade it out over a years time. But then again, would a wooden box still be in tact after a year in the water?

    I keep thinking of the baby girl in TX that floated across the bay.
    It was a Rubbermaid type tote IIRC.

    Could a concrete block (like back door) be in there to weight it down?
    Looks like a tote to me, white top, transparent bottom???

    I was thinking a smooth plastic rubbermaid type box would wash clean fairly quickly while being pulled up and moved around in the water. JMO

    I don't think it's sonar equipment. They keep the computer on the shore. Divers use what looks like a big gun.

    A news report said the divers knew exactly where to go.

    This looks like a cooler or storage box to me, perhaps faded, or just slime on the bottom.:twocents:

    Thank you for the blow up picture! Yes it could be handles. I have been googling sonar equipment pics because I tend to think it's some kind of equipment; haven't found anything that matches though.

    Why would pix be taken of it?

    if it is equipment of the divers???

    Also at that video link I was watching they said that the silt on the bottom of the river was feet deep, maybe what we think was a box was equipment of some sort.

    They brought in stadium lights, in for the long haul, Thank God!

    That's what I'm thinking passionflower.

    Like they could have put her and a concrete block or something in there to prevent the box for surfacing...put the container in the back of that darn van...backed down the boat launch ramp and threw her out. IMO it would have sank pretty quickly and they could have been done and gone in no time.

    Sad to think of someone doing that to this precious girl, but looks to me like that could have been what happened.

    FWIW, when I was watching the video live, I thought it looked like one of those metal cases (like a fatter version of those metal type briefcases) that a camera or something delicate would be surrounded by a foam mold. KWIM? It looked clean at first glance and so I thought it was part of their equipment.

    All JMOO, this is just my impressions while watching. At the time it was broadcast, it didn't occur to me that it was something being brought up, so what I described is what I processed it to be. Hope that all makes sense! :) I hope it's gonna be Haleigh's day today!

    Ya, I don't know. When the news anchors were first talking about it live, they said they didn't know what it was, or if they were removing it. Now it's being reported that it is a big box that was removed. How does anyone know?

    IMO silt and slime would wash away from a smooth plastic container while being pulled up. A smooth container has no pourous or rough surface for silt or slime to stick to.

    JMO - It could be a plastic container that has been there for 14 months.
