    I disagree with this assertion. Who said this?

    I called my son "little man" from the day he was born. He seriously looked like a little man. :confused:

    The joint goal is to find him.

    Here's a case that is "exactly" the same as the disappearance of Deorr except that this child was three times older. I will post an additional link about this case with more details.

    Now don't think for a minute that I have a particular penchant for sleuthing mountain lions and that for some strange reason feel a compulsion to try to create a blame game for this furry creature. I don't feel a necessity to blame the mountain lion for nefarious, questionable, untoward behavior just because news in this case has been slow coming and just because it is a POI (predator of interest) that was in the forest at the time. Nothing could be further from my mind.

    After reading this news story and follow-up stories as well, you feel there is a MORE reasonable likelihood that something else happened to little Deorr, I would be interested in hearing about it. TIA

    Here's a follow-up article:

    Ok, thanks skinnycat, I suspect that I'm overthinking things. :blush:

    Something about that "confused" icon that always makes me laugh. :giggle: And thank you very much for your input, JLS. I'm starting to get the picture. :)

    This "lil man" term is not regional. I am in the south and noticed it over 18 months ago when my previous interns were having babies and used this term, and even had baby showers with this theme. Like you, I cringed at the terminology! Let's use a Baby Boy, a Son, just not "lil man"!

    However, it is the new and current terminology. My son and wife just had my first grandchild, a boy, and how many times have I heard "lil man"! I just smile, and keep my mouth shut as it is the in thing. Just like when the word "cool" was the in thing. Hope this helps.

    Omg, this is seriously scary. And just to let you know, I have never totally discounted the possibility of a wild animal / mountain lion attack. Though it sounds as though the Sheriff has. Still, it may come to be that is what happened. :(

    Nope not over thinking at all you are just looking for answers like the rest of us, I can see where it could sound strange to those that have never used it or heard it.

    Well, if that's the case then the sheriff needs to get up to snuff on the subject. The sheriff certainly is no expert on mountain lions but there are a lot of resources available to assist him.

    I believe there were many people in the last thread. I may not have read all of the replies but I thought it was the general consensus that they would not normally search their homes - there was talk of search warrants etc.. I may have missed something.

    It's not just current terminology. I'm older than dirt, am a grandparent and called MY now grown son little man. Maybe you're talking about "lil"? I don't use that word.

    You know, I got to thinking about that term as it was nagging at me. I thought it sounded familiar... then just a bit ago, it came to me. That term was used referencing a dog, our dog, by my ex-husband. But this was years and years ago, like almost 30 years. :dunno: Beats me. So, a Southern thing ? But, wait, Idaho isn't the South. :confused:

    Well all I can say is that I don't see a baby or toddler as any kind of 'man', but that's just me, and let everyone else do their thing, lol. From now on I know to recognize it as a term of endearment. Thanks all ... :seeya:

    Ahh, gotcha, thanks. It was the people here at WS stating their opinions. LE would most definitely say different, IMO.

    If they hadn't searched their homes, cars, etc...People (not you) would be chastising them for that.

    I'm glad they did it. They have to be thorough and search everything, everywhere, everyone in order to find this precious child.

    No way JLS, that you're older than dirt. :giggle: And please forgive me if I've missed out on, or am ignorant of, something that is apparently a cultural norm.
    It's been an eye opening experience. :seeya:
