    Thanks! That article though doesn't say that the dogs hit on the trunk of a car, but that dogs were used to search his parents' car and bloodhounds tracked his scent.

    Crystal Lake from the movie was set in New Jersey and it was a big lake. Crystal Lake is a town in Illinois. It does have a couple of very small lakes within it, one of many dozens of small lakes that dot Northern Illinois. Praying for this little guy - saw it on the Chicago news this morning.

    Some of my friends live near Crystal Lake, apparently, a helicopter is there, and a scuba team is looking for him in the lake.

    There must be a video or picture not loading because I'm at work and I can't find that.

    ETA: The only 2 images I see are one of the boy, and another of a neighbor being interviewed in front of a tree.

    I just saw video on WGN news of a dog inside the trunk of a car sniffing around, but that does not necessarily mean the dog hit on the car, does it? Just might be having the dog search the car, and possibly coming up empty.

    Police Don't Believe Missing Crystal Lake Boy Was Abducted

    Police said an investigation so far does not appear to indicate an abduction took place in the disappearance of a 5-year-old boy in Crystal Lake.

    Authorities said Friday that in the last 24 hours of their search, "several police search and rescue canine units, trained specifically to locate people... only picked up [Andrew Freund's] 'scent' within the residence indicating that Andrew had not walked away on foot."

    Authorities said their search for the missing child remains focused on the home.

    I really want to believe this boy's parents did not harm him. We know from experience that children can indeed be abducted from their homes, but we also know that, statistically, it's just not the most likely scenario. :(

    The parents said they last saw Andrew at 9 pm but we don't know if that is true. moo. They could just be saying that. Sad. Moo.

    The same car backed up to the garage in the abc7 video and in Google Maps from October 2018. Just thought it was interesting.

    Following.
    Saw this in another msm article.
    I don't think someone abducted him. And that's all I'm going to say.
    What a little cutie he is. :(

    Hope DCFS didn't drop the ball here.

    I've worked out in the field with scent dogs though I'm not trained in handling them (just observed them). The dog either indicates a "hit" of a scent with a bark, or the dog immediately goes to the handler with a visual cue they use together then returns to the scent source. I see in the video earlier that the dog just gets out of the trunk. I'm guessing no scent.

    I did see a reporter say neighbors hadn’t seen the boy since last week sometime. I would love to know when he was last seen outside the home. I’ve been thinking longer and they’ve just reported now because they will be seeing family for the holiday.
