Isn't the 5 year d saying her brother was in the car considered a confirmed sighting ? TIA
@FCN2go: Barring anything breaking, JSO will update the public on their search efforts for Lonzie Barton at 8:30 a.m. Sunday morning. #FINDLONZIE

I believe last I heard (in police conference) she was going in and out of that story "due to her age" is what the sheriff said.
Edit.. Detectives have also spoken to Lonzie's sister, but Hackney said she has not provided any concrete evidence.
Agree with you as to how sad this is. As to why CPS wasn't involved (do we know that as a fact?), first someone has to provide CPS with reason to investigate. If no one comes forward and gets involved, CPS doesn't know there's a problem. Secondly, if CPS took custody of every child whose custodial parent had a record and a history of drug use, they wouldn't begin to have room for them all. Sad, but true. Finally, laws in many states require CPS to make keeping the family together the top priority, in which case they wouldn't be able to remove a child for "just " prior drug use and a record.
That's SO true. There is no room in foster care for every neglected, abused, drug-addicted household child. Just as in the past, there was no help for every starved, abused, abandoned, brutalized child. We have no way, as a society, to take care of all the children that are at risk. Horribly sad.
And bouncing off what you said:
Hats off to LE.
This is a great question. I hope some other sleuthers know the answer. Obviously, they want to interview her and know what she knows and go off of things she says to investigate but is a 5 yr old's sighting a ' confirmed' sighting ? Great question. I am actually leaning towards ' no' if I had to guess.
They said the laundromat is about a mile and a half from the apt, is this park between the apt complex, and laundromat? I just looked at the map, the park is right down from the laundromat.
I haven't been able to follow as close as I wanted to but I am confused about something.
I am thinking that I have read that his mother last saw him at the Laundromat, and also that she last saw him when she left for work.
Wasn't Lonzie in the car because bf was taking her to work? I though I saw earlier that bf dropped her off at work and then went to the Laundromat.
I also keep thinking back to all the confusion with the Cummings......
On this map, done by WSer, skibaboo, the laundromat shows to be on Powers Ave. If the park is 7641 Powers Ave. it's right there adjacent to the laundromat:
I'm confused about this as well. After reading through everything several times, I've come to the conclusion that it's possible mom, boyfriend, kids went to the laundry to throw the wash in before taking mom to work. After dropping mom off, they stop back by the laundromat to move clothes from washer to dryer/start another load/whatever. That seems to be the only conclusion I could come up with, but I've never been to a laundromat in my life, so I don't know what the timing is like.
ETA: Or maybe there was only one trip to the laundromat and it's being reported wrong or someone is trying to be sneaky and telling fibs about where they were that night for some sort of alibi.
Thanks Hoosier952, that makes sense.....or at least as much sense can be made of anything here.
Poor poor little Lonzie and his sis.
I have been wondering about the mom saying she last saw him at 8 at the laundromat because if the Suspect drove her to work, then the last place she saw him should be her workplace. But I don't think anyone has ever said the suspect drover her TO work. We know he said he was on his way to pick her up from work, but that is it. I wonder if they stopped there and a co-worker picked her up on the way to the gentleman's club. That is how this scenario makes sense to me, but who knows really. The police took a computer from the laundromat, so they may have verified some of these assertions.
I'm betting Ebron is waiting to make a deal
My husband and I went to the site today. We gave out water, chikfila, fruit and a few other things to LE. Also went to court house to see the *** stand in front of the judge....just defiant. I just wanted to scream at him and honestly beat the hell out of him. But....instead I balled. Tonight we went to the vigal, a few of Cherish" family members were there, Deana Thompson was there. A few other people that have missing or murdered children were there. The whole night almost took my breath away. We took our 4 year old blonded hair, blue eyed granddaughter with us. Maybe we,should not have but we told her what was going on. Her main focus was wanting the canines' to find Lonzie. We will go back if citizens start searching!
I put the 7641address into map quest and it shows the park further down where Powers Ave runs into Old Kings Rd. S.
So unless something breaks tonight the search will resume in the morning.
Yeah, it looks like a fairly large park. I don't know where the reporter got the 7641 number from. Maybe a city park's address is just in the middle of it somewhere?
thinking Ebron will have drug withdraws any day now....maybe then he will start talking
Looking at the map the park by the laundromat is the High School and the one at 7641 address is San Jose Athletic Association.
