It's ALWAYS a concern when parents "check" on their toddlers in the middle of the night, IMHO. That raises huge red flags. In my opinion.
In reality, how many abducted children have ever been taken due to a "grudge" against a family?
So, the little one's diaper bag and blanket are missing, per mom. Doubt the child took a diaper bag when she climbed out of the crib and went out for an evening walk. Yes, of course, that is sarcastic ... but if those items are gone, we know that someone took her.
I pray to God that whoever took this child is taking care of her. And will bring her back.
I agree with others that this case sounds like other cases we've all followed...the accounts from the adults on the scene aren't making sense.
I hope we are all wrong and that little Sharylyn is found safe, and I hope that happens today.
I have 4 kids and check on them each night- more to just give them one last kiss before bed. That includes my 12 year old. I know they are ok, so I guess it's not really checking on them, but I see them between when they go to bed and when I go to bed!
Are there any vindictive exes in the picture?
