    Chief deputy on missing boy's family: 'They're solid

    KTVB, KTVB.COM 2:14 p.m. MDT July 16, 2015

    [...]
    "We've interviewed the family, and the information they've provided us - my office, myself - we're good with that," he said. "And I know there's a lot of innuendo out on social media and a lot of stuff going out there and it would be nice if it would stop and let them have a little peace. They're solid."

    Here is a slightly "tilted" view of the camp area to give a sense of terrain. We think their campsite is where the truck and camper is parked in this view: https://www.google.ca/maps/place/Ti...m2!3m1!1s0x5357b2face15292b:0x50f57ef867884c6

    Brought over from previous thread

    Yeah, but you don't always think of everything. Maybe you just need a break, or a refill on your coffee. If you're a tourist, maybe you want a souvenir. Lots of reasons to stop.

    Somebody up thread asked if the creek could be drained. Nobody replied. I just wanted to tell that poster nobody replied because I don't think we know. I don't remember it being discussed here and it would take somebody up there in the know to discuss that. Hope that helps.

    Would the parents volunteer for polys if they had anything to hide?

    And maybe the woman in the store did see a filthy, bawling toddler in a black truck at 6pm. It might not have been DeOrr though. And at 6pm it certainly wasn't dad because LE were there by then.

    My dad is in his late 60s and still goes hiking and camping with his friends, and he and my mam took me from being a few months old.

    The search has been officially suspended. The sheriff said investigators from Bonneville and Bingham counties have offered assistance in further follow-up investigations into any possible criminal histories of those involved

    People volunteer for poly's all the time, then change their minds later. Anyone who has been on this forum any length of time knows this happens alot. Not saying the parents are guilty of anything or have anything to hide but YEA people do volunteer to do them..but then dont follow through. Pretty common it seems.

    I'd like to see a show of hands: how many people here live in a sparsely populated place or enjoy recreating in such a place? My impression is not too many. So I thought I would share a few things that are common among those who do:

    1) There is a universal code of "self rescue": In an emergency, it will take too long for help to arrive. You take immediate action yourself to find someone who is missing, give first aid to someone who is hurt or sick, etc. Once you've done a thorough search, or stabilized your "patient," then you call for help. Every minute counts when you are in a remote location. If little Deorr had fallen in water, they needed to spread out and look themselves immediately, not try to call 911. They did what backcountry enthusiasts know to do, and need to do, before deciding they needed additional help.

    2) Age is just a number. It's a state of mind. If great-grandpa liked the outdoors, why shouldn't he go camping in a place like this? My father-in-law was active right up until he died at 86, even though he was dying from cancer his last few years. Nothing was going to stop him from living before he died. In addition, for all we know, g-grandpa was dying and he wanted "one last time in the wilderness" before his health prevented him from being able to do so. No matter what the circumstances, a multi-generational family camping in the wilderness does not make me wonder, "What the heck?" I think, "How wonderful!"

    It just saddens me to see people think this isn't a normal outing for families to take. And it also saddens me that people think this family didn't call for help quickly enough. These are not the things that bother me. What bothers me is that SAR didn't find a single item belonging to this toddler, they didn't find footprints, and their dogs didn't find a scent.

    I do think it's possible he was abducted. There are cases where human predators wait in remote locations: serial killers come to mind, such as Israel Keyes. But my gut says if he was at the campground, he fell in the creek and is lodged farther down than they searched. He could be in the reservoir, but I think that is less likely (but not impossible).

    All this is JMO, of course.

    I dont know for sure about possibly stopping the creek water but I can take a good guess based on the pictures.

    When a creek is running like that, There is only 2 ways I know of where they could stop the flow of that creek in order to search below the creek better.

    #1-It depends on the source of the creeks water. If the source of the creek water was coming from a dam and they had a way to turn off of the valves right at the dam, then they could stop the flow for a certain length of time before having to turn the valves back on.

    There was talk of a reservoir up from the campsite so I am not sure if there is a dam with a valve that is feeding that creek or not. It all depends on the source of this creeks water.

    It could be a naturally fed creek and then it could not be stopped without Option #2.

    #2-Corps of Engineers would have to escavate the land to divert the creek to another diversion and force the water to go somewhere else.

    This option #2 is not really an option due to the huge cost and permits involved.

    Very much so. In fact, he will be on Coast to Coast AM tonight 1AM - 5AM, EST; 10PM - 2AM PST. I believe it will be well worth the listen. I've read all but his latest book and I look at things a bit differently these days.

    Guys, can you guys please help? I am trying to hear what the journalist asks at 4:17 that makes the mom sort of smile at 4:19-4:20 but I cannot hear it properly. Thanks in advance.

    On the previous thread, someone had made a good point about the 911 call and I think it kind of got merged into a discussion of how long is long enough before calling 911.

    The point that got lost was the mother herself said on the 911 recording that she had searched about 1 hour before calling 911.

    The poster was trying to clear up the other inconsistencies in other reports about it only being 10 minutes before the call to 911 was made.

    We have heard inconsistent reporting about this and i think this is a real good point that on this particular call, the mother herself says it was about 1 hour. So IMO, i am going with 1 hour too.

    "She said they checked around the area they were camping for over an hour before calling 911."

    IMO he's not. David Paulides makes these cases all sensational, when they are really just people that got lost in the outdoors. National Parks are huge and it's easy to get lost out in them. The terrain can be too dangerous for searchers to find missing people. It doesn't take long for nature to take its course and remains get scattered and covered up by undergrowth.

    Paulides might never mention bigfoot in any of the Missing 411 books, but that's just part of the marketing ploy that gets people to buy his other books.
