    Gannon Stauch of Colorado Springs left home on foot around 3:15 p.m. to go play at a friend's house, his parents say, but never came home.

    The last known sighting of Stauch was Monday afternoon between 3 and 4 p.m. in the Lorson Ranch neighborhood at his home. He lives along Mandan Drive east of Colorado Springs near Fontaine Boulevard and Marksheffel. He was reportedly going to visit his friend a few streets away.

    Gannon's father is a member of the National Guard, and the Guard is assisting with search efforts.

    Due to his age and expected weather, the Major Crimes Unit is assisting in the search because they have more tools at their disposal.

    Can anyone, including LE track a Fitbit without the owner's knowledge?

    I would think yes, to a degree. I feel like there is something in the Terms to do so. They have used them in adult disappearances (I think they did in Mollie Tibbets) so I would imagine the same here.

    I'm not sure it can be done without the owner's knowledge. It would probably require a warrant as in any other electrical/digital device. Is the owner advised if a warrant is issued to get their phone records? Would a fitbit be any different?

    Certain Fitbits have GPS capabilities as do Apple Watches I believe. A lot of the fitness tracker smartwatch type devices have GPS now.

    Good Question.

    I agree; I think that if she really thought everyone would buy the runaway story, that could have truly seemed like her best option if something happened (either she intentionally did something to him or there was an accident she should have prevented). I think she seems pretty dependent on this marriage working; the move to Colorado took her and her daughter far away from the rest of their family and support system. If she thought BD would kick her out (which of course, he did, so her fears were apparently founded) when he came home and either saw what happened to his son or heard his complaints, she might have been desperate enough to do something horrible. She also comes across as impulsive and prone to bad judgement and decisions.

    Given all that, I think they will find Gannon somewhere he could have walked to from the route he would have taken to his friend's house.

    This came up bigtime when Jamal Khasoggi was murdered in the Saudi embassy in Istanbul... no, that was his watch or was it? Sorry, plot lost, need fingerprint far as I know... no, wait again, some US sodiers were being traced via their fitbit apps and they had to stop using them If that sentence made no sense, I can't do it better, I've lapsed into jibberish but it might give a sane individual a headstart for a search for a coherent answer. Is all. Sorry.

    That's okay, actually that report last night was the first time I heard it clarified that there was "conflict" between the stepmother and Gannon's mom.

    I think it was channel 13 or ABC, but I'm not sure.

    The reporter also said he went from door to door and some neighbors did not want to say anything but he found someone who was willing to share the security footage with him.

    So I'm assuming there is more than one camera that captured Letecia and Gannon driving off in the red truck.

    There could even be more incriminating video that LE has that we don't know about.

    Imo

    Yes I remember that on the Mollie Tibbets case (he's trying to get out of it...ugh). But SM from everything we've been privy to see, always has a fitbit on. So even if she did not take her phone with her couldn't they still track her day?
    Or if I didn't return from one of my long walks....would my hubby, without my passwords, be able to locate me?

    How much would LE rely on his younger sisters recount of the events of the weekend to issue an arrest warrant? Do LEs generally take what children say with a grain of salt or could her recounting be the real clincher?

    MODS PLEASE BRING THIS POST OVER TO ALL NEW THREADS UNLESS THERE IS AN ARREST.

    IF YOU DON'T WANT TO READ THIS WHOLE POST HERE IS THE SHORT VERSION. WE CANNOT IGNORE GANNON'S STEPMOTHER POSSIBLE INVOLVEMENT IN HIS DISAPPEARANCE BASED ON THE VIDEOTAPE. THIS IS A RARE CASE WHERE WE WILL ALLOW MEMBERS TO DISCUSS THE STEPMOTHER HOWEVER DO NOT TRASH HER OR CALL HER NAMES LIKE YOU ARE ON A PLAYGROUND. DISCUSS THE FACTS AND LEAVE THE NAME-CALLING TO FACEBOOK GROUPS. YOU OWN YOUR WORDS. A GOOD WAY TO DECIDE IF YOU SHOULD POST SOMETHING OR NOT IS ASK YOURSELF IF YOU COULD DEFEND WHAT YOU POST IN A COURT OF LAW. ALSO PLEASE USE HER INITIALS.

    Dear Everyone,

    Rarely are things black and white when it comes to the Websleuths rules.

    One of our rules is we cannot accuse just anyone of a crime. Good rule. Another rule we do our best to follow is unless law enforcement says someone is a suspect or even a person of interest we cannot accuse anyone connected to a case of a crime.

    Then we have our great big gray areas. Like Gannon's case.

    It is rare these days for law enforcement to actually say someone is a suspect but we have to use our common sense.

    Take the case of the missing children of Lori Vallow. Her behavior and the fact that people around her are dropping dead leaves us with the very logical conclusion that she has done something with her children and therefore we do allow our members to discuss this case with Lori and her husband Chad as possible perps involved in her missing children.

    Mark Sievers was just convicted of 1st-degree murder in the death of his wife Dr. Teresa Sievers even though he was hundreds of miles away when she was murdered. Early on we allowed our members to discuss Mark Sievers as a suspect because of what our members discovered and it was only common sense that he was a suspect.

    Then there is the case of Heidi Broussard. Her boyfriend was 100 percent innocent in her disappearance and her murder but many members decided to accuse him of being involved because he was awkward in front of the camera. I hope that those who felt it was OK to accuse a man when there was no evidence to suggest he had anything to do with the crime will re-think before they ever do something like that again. Remember, unless the Internet blows up, Heidi and Shane's children could (one day) read your words about their father.

    Your words have power. You are responsible for your opinions. We cannot babysit this thread 24/7.

    Always imagine you are standing in front of the person you are posting about. Imagine that person knows your real name and where you live. Imagine that person has the power to go on a forum and say something about you. Now, this scenario is strictly a fantasy but it is a great guideline to use when you post.

    Below is the short version of this post.

    WE CANNOT IGNORE GANNON'S STEPMOTHER POSSIBLE INVOLVEMENT IN HIS DISAPPEARANCE BASED ON THE VIDEOTAPE. THIS IS A RARE CASE WHERE WE WILL ALLOW MEMBERS TO DISCUSS THE STEPMOTHER HOWEVER DO NOT TRASH HER OR CALL HER NAMES LIKE YOU ARE ON A PLAYGROUND.

A GOOD WAY TO DECIDE IF YOU SHOULD POST SOMETHING OR NOT IS ASK YOURSELF IF YOU COULD DEFEND WHAT YOU POST IN A COURT OF LAW. ALSO PLEASE USE HER INITIALS.

    Thank you,
