    There are a TON of grow operations out there, may which are visible on imagery, and many more that are tucked in. It is entirely possible that they are from someone eles entirely. It would be highly unlikely that kids that age could build a fire, especially in the wet conditions. It should have been easy enough for searchers to look around for footprints and determine if the children were ever there.

    Yes. Casey. And was heard by a dog walker because he was crying. I wish these little ladies would be heard and be found as well.

    It’s probably dye from their tee shirts. They are wearing tye-dyed ones.

    However, foul play doesn’t have to involve parents. Or family. Investigating all avenues is spot on in case they were picked up by some stranger. JMO

    When I first saw this article on these 2 adorable missing girls, my thought automatically goes to foul play since it seems like there is a lot of it in this day and age. However, so far it does sound like they simply wandered off and got lost. I'm praying these two girls will be found safe and that there is no foul play. My heart aches for them.

    Yes, it sounds like the sheriff has covered that possibility, from the beginning. They're stopping and searching all the cars in and out of the area.

    Or a hungry stranger asked them for food and they went and got granola bars and came back outside and tried to find that person and got lost or kept following to a sheltered area?

    I agree with sarx-- the dye on their faces and their shirts looks like they did a "color run"-- usually a race in which runners are doused with colored dye at each point they pass. Humboldt county had a family color run for all ages in Sept 2018: MGC's COLOR HUMBOLDT RUN 2018
    Photos from the 2017 run to give you an idea of what it's like: https://www.ervmgc.com/color-run

    Thanks, good image. Looks like they are searching the mountain top. Not what I would expect. I would not think the girls would walk uphill in that terrain, especially with the youngest girl. But I'm sure they know what they are doing (they have more info that I do!).

    I think those are drone searches in that area. The drones can cover a wide area fairly quickly, so it's probably good to check there, too. Never know if they decided to go uphill and down the other side. I've never been lost in the woods, so I don't know, but it seems its so easy for people to get turned around and move in directions that are the opposite of where they think they're headed.

    Great that they have these drones with FLIR equipment. A huge help in this situation.

    There has been an unknown development in the case of the missing girls, Leia and Caroline. The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office just tweeted, " Press conference has been delayed due to developing information. Will update soon."

    The problem is, with the density of the forest in this area, the IR has trouble penetrating and is not as helpful as one would hope.
