    I agree. They may have gone to the lake expecting to meet up with a certain someone, but when they were not at the lake... the skate park was the next destination. The girls could have been riding and circling the area of Gilbert Drive, Frans, Schons, Lake and Arbitus Avenue waiting for someone to show up at the skate park.... for example:

    Dogs naturally track oldest to newest.

    However, if staging has occured, we can disregard the dogs.

    Staging may well have included dragging items belonging to the girls around the path, in my opinion.

    Contrary to what has been stated, LE said the dogs appeared to lead to the water, yet msm and the family said the appeared to lead to the wooded area.

    Or the other way round.

    Thank you for the picture. The girls would have wanted to have gotten off Gilbert ASAP because GMA might have driven on Gilbert to look for them.

    yes, it would seem that they stuck by the 1215

    but I don't necessarily think the times on the camera changed..

    I think they are narrowing their focus and have good reason to put out a more precise time to get more public feedback.

    :moo:

    yes, I believe as well that the sighting on gilbert between 1230 and 1300 could well be grass-water-man. It also fits with their normal pattern of behavior as this witness was quoted saying he saw them often riding down his street turning around and riding back.

    :moo:

    (I should be on a "got milk" poster with all these cows :lol:)

    Probably right, however, it was posted that there were "several" sightings on Gilbert. So, RC is probably/possibly one (since he lives on the corner), but it seems there are others and LE is now suggesting they were in an area that includes Elmer Avenue and Arbutus. MOO

    I will brb to link you our SAR thread. We have two verified SAR posters (sarx and Oriah)

    From what I have learned from other cases they have posted on (esp that of Sierra Lamar) they track the freshest scent.

    For example, Sierra Lamar was kidnapped walking to her bus. The dog was able to track how far down the road she went that particular morning because the dogs tracked the freshest scent. (the question had been posed to sarx: how could the dog track Sierra that morning if she walked to the bus every single day)



    I will see if I can get one of them to stop by this thread as well to give some perspective.

    Lol SapphireSteel. :)
    Thanks for the clarification.

    About your last point, I think it IS the other way round.

    I was searching for the reference to 'several people' while you were posting.

    http://www.wxow.com/story/19544827/marking-two-months-since-elizabeth-lyric-disappeared

    Thursday, they issued a plea for anyone who was in the Arbutus Avenue, Gilbert Drive, and Elmer Avenue areas on July 13th, and who may have seen the girls, to call police. Several witnesses reported seeing the cousins in this area between 12:30 and 1:00 that afternoon.

    OMG, I've been here since day one and thought I'd read everything. Maybe I just skipped over it because it didn't make sense to me.

    Nancy Grace and Jim Spellman re the dogs

    Jim, I want to go back over what you just said. I`m learning something new right now, that scent dogs, after smelling in the little girls` shoes and their clothing, eliminating family members, started smelling at the bikes. And instead of going down into the water, which I don`t think that two little girls are going to go swimming in their clothes anyway -- but the dogs didn`t go towards the water, they went back toward the bike path?

    SPELLMAN: They did, back towards the bike path, which ends in kind of a wooded area. Nancy, the way this lake is laid out, there`s a bike path that is sort of a U. And in the far corner of the U is where the girls` bikes were found.


    Family re the dogs -

    Family members said early Tuesday afternoon that dogs had tracked the scent of the girls to where their bicycles had been located on the southeast corner of Meyers Lake.

    FBI on the dogs

    In the Evansdale case, Breault said the dogs had indicated the girls’ scent was in the area near Meyers Lake.
    “The scent did lead to the water, which is also where their bikes were found,”
    she said.

    Spellman again -


    SPELLMAN: That`s right, Nancy, out of the girls` shoes. Family members were lined up so that the dogs could eliminate their scent. They then followed the scent from where the girls` bikes were found. And we know that the dogs went not too far, but into a wooded area at the end, the terminus, of this bike path. And that`s as far as we know that the dogs got.

    So....clear as mud.

    I wonder if the girls could have ridden their bikes at the skate park. My son was not into skateboards, but he had a BMX bike and we often took him to a skate park to ride his bike there. The local church also would take groups of kids, some had skateboards, others had their bikes. In fact, Lyric is about the same age as he when he took an interest in BMX. Little daredevil!

    It's where the boys are too. At that age, my friends and I would go where the boys were...we were innocent, but we did have crushes on different boys, etc. E was very interested in doing what her older brother did or was into..the family talked about that in an interview. MOO

    So, I'm probably as sick of the <censored> "white van" as everyone else, but I looked from different angles on one of the Bing maps. I remember a black truck being mentioned earlier too. Circled in red... yikes. What kind of vehicles are these? I wish these maps/overhead views were dated, or if they are I wish I knew out to find the date.

    Well at least we know definitely what the dogs did... :crazy: <sarcasm off>

    Thanks for putting all these quotes together in one spot! It's hard when you know you heard something, sometime, but you weren't sure when or who said it. This helps a lot having all the quotes together.
