In a precedent that could have a major impact nationwide, California police say they are looking at known child *advertiser censored* traffickers in a missing child case.
(TRACY, Calif.) - Police in Tracy, California, a city of 80,000 just east of San Francisco, are searching for an 8 year-old child, Sandra Cantu, who disappeared March 27th.
Now, according to the Tracy Press, investigators in the case say they are looking at 60 individuals in the Tracy area who have been identified trafficking in child *advertiser censored*, along with 78 "registered" sex offenders.
It is believed to be the first time in the U.S. that police have publicly acknowledged the huge population of known but not arrested child *advertiser censored* suspects in a missing child case. more at link:

Good article and parents needs to know and be informed so they can watch children carefully. Even in MHP's they aren't safe without adult supervision.:mad:

You mean the hotel guest came into the the park and then took her out? Or do you mean she left the park?

I think they would have both on tape.

The pond was filled with water 10 days ago almost to the day of her vanishing.

Based on the child trafficking in the area, yes the MHP and a hotel guest most likely are working together.

If the Pastor lives on ORANGE (?) that is the direction she was walking when last seen on the video!


Looking up the address for the pastor, he lives IN the MHP, lot #57.

I think they will find it was someone inside the park and probably someone they have already interviewed. It would have to be someone familiar with the church and the shed if this is the crime scene.

How did the person get Sandra to the church? Was there a ruse to take her to the bible study? What time did the bible study begin?

Sad to say but I definitely can see Sandra falling for it! :mad:

Thanks - does anyone know if that was indeed the family at the press conference yesterday? There was something off about it that I will keep to myself, but was wondering.

I heard the news this morning and am just so sad about it! Hope they make an arrest soon!

I am so sick and tired of children being abducted and killed! This has got to stop!!:furious: It's becoming an epidemic!:mad:

Thanks, Salem~

I don't recall there being another camera at the entrance besides the one on Sandra's home (altho he could have two cameras there and we only know of one so far) due to someone vandalizing his truck.

NO family spoke. The lead detective was given a written statement from the famil to read.. I'm not sure , but I don't think the family was on scene.

It has been an "epidemic" for a long time now. As the laws got stronger against sexual predators, unfortunately, it resulted in more murders of victims to avoid prosecutions, imo.

This was no accident. I do believe this was a sexual assault/murder scenario with her age, circumstances of being alone, and the way she was found.

I saw the video of the LE caravan going into MHP last night. Are they still there, any word on what they took etc. All the residents were outside of their homes and had not been let back in at that time. Does anyone know what time they let everyone back in? etc.

I read a minute ago the mother was taken to the hospital via ambulance so perhaps they were with her.

the family was notified before the presser and Sandra's mother was hospitalized. I don't think they would have been in any condition to be at the press conference. They need to circle the wagons so to speak. Moo of course

This is just so tragic - I just saw the news about the pond and the suitcase. That changes everything.

If you are talking about the group of people that were standing off in the back last night then left the room when the camera's shot to cover them....yes, I think that was part of the family. However, I did not see Sandra's mother in that group. I don't know how they ended up in that room but I don't really blame them for not wanting to be in there. I would have been at home loading my handgun....I am sorry but, I really really would kill the person that ever brought harm to any of my children. I give the family members of victims so much credit because I just would not be able to live unless I knew the p*g responsible was in hell.

Is this really saying they KNOW who's involved in the child *advertiser censored* but they haven't been prosecuted? WTH!

If this does involve child *advertiser censored* that leads me to believe she wasn't killed that soon after she was taken & makes whatever happened to her even more horrific..I really can't even go there right now or I'll go :crazy:

Do you think that these people in the back might have been from the father's side of the family? It was weird.....they looked grief-stricken and would not stay in the room. I would like some more info on who it might have been.

Good morning all. I just wanted to repost two things I found in the wee hours of this morning:

1) http://www.sgmsurvivors.com/ -- a group for "survivors" of the Sovereign Grace Ministry churches. The Clover Road Church is a part of this group according to their web site.

2) If you do a Google search for the church's address (11000 W. Clover Rd Tracy, CA) you can see it in street view. there's a long rancho style building and a smaller building -- possibly the shed in question?

Have you guys heard anything more about the church?
