    Write up with local comments:

    http://sbynews.blogspot.com/2009/12/missing-child-sarah-foxwell.html

    according to local comments - there are helicoptors, LE searches, divers, K-9 units, etc all looking for this beautiful child. It's obvious LE doesn't believe her to be alive.

    ETA: Sarah and her sister live with their aunt who is the legal guardian.

    They have the predator in custody and he won't talk - I have a few ideas on how to make that happen.

    Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis announced late Wednesday night that Leggs, a resident of Bennett Road in Salisbury and a registered sex offender, has been charged with one count of kidnapping and one count of first-degree burglary. Leggs is awaiting his initial appearance before a Wicomico District Court commissioner.
    According to the Wicomico County Sex Offender Registry, Leggs was convicted in 1998 of committing a sex offense against a 12-year-old girl. He was 18 when the alleged offense occurred, according to the registry. Leggs was also convicted in 2001 of a sex crime in Delaware.
    Lewis noted that while Leggs is not related to Sarah, he did know her.

    the longer I am on websleuths the angrier I am getting about people being either naieve/gullible/selfish or just not caring about the people they befriend/move in with/or trust with their children....

    Boy you who have been on this site for years must just be beyond despair with the amount of times this is happening...

    First of all mum must have problems if the kids are in the care of someone else, secondly this ******* was familiar with the family!!!! and what gets me was there was NO forced entry......an adult has led this guy into this llittle girls life...

    I really do not want everyone coming down on me for this but in alot of these cases, these adults are not leading decent lives in some way......

    Her middle name could be Haley. Just a thought.

    The Wicomico County Mobile Command Units were stationed on Zion Church Road, but will be moving to Winter Place Park tomorrow.
    They will begin ground searches there as soon as officials set up a perimeter.
    At least ten teams of searchers and k-9 units searched for Sarah in a three mile radius of Zion Church Road.
    Officials say that dogs then picked up a scent at Parsons Lake which led to the dive teams going out in dark waters, and unfavorable weather conditions.

    I have been on WS for over a year now.
    The only way it is helpful, if for the ones that are found, that are safe.
    And the ones who deserve the life sentences they get.
    Every so often, I have to back away for awhile.

    So mom is living with a RSO.
    Or he is her 'boy friend.'

    Sigh.

    That's interesting - the longer I'm on WS the angrier I get with the legal system that continues to let these slugs out of jail; let these slugs seal their juvenile records; pretend group therapy or any therapy helps; and provide the slug with who knows how many chances for rehabilitation. A child doesn't get a second chance!

    Sorry, but if it wasn't Sarah the pedophile predator took, it would have been another child, perhaps one living next door or down the street. I do agree that in an ideal world every mom, dad, sister, uncle, and grandparent with a computer should/could do a sex offender check on neighbors, friends, and sig. others, but also in an ideal world, our legal system should remotely work in keeping therse slugs off the streets, and it doesn't. For me, my anger and energies are directed toward the dysfunctional system that continues to let these low-lifes roam around free. MOO

    I find this statement in the article very odd:

    Sarah was reported missing about 10 a.m. Wednesday by a family member. She was last seen about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, and her disappearance was discovered early Wednesday when a family member went to check on her and her 6-year-old sister, Lewis said. He also said there was no evidence of forced entry into the residence.

    http://www.delmarvanow.com/article/...ties-search-overnight-for-missing-11-year-old

    No one checked on the children from 9:30 PM until 10:00 AM with a 6 year old in the house. WTH! No signs of a "break-in". Sure makes me wonder if the aunt was home.

    I also wonder what evidence they have that it is Leggs that took Sarah? He is being charge with kidnapping and first degree burglary, yet they are saying "no signs of break-in".

    Is the aunt dating Leggs? Where is Sarah's mother? Is Sarah's mother dating Leggs?

    The Salisbury Dive Team was out last night searching different ponds in the area and quite frankly we provided a tip to the Sheriff's Department in which they were searching while we were there last night. I was informed there was enough evidence at the scene to bring in additional people for a better search.

    Many of you have provided incredible information and that's the best we can do at this time. I'd like to clear up some confusion about who's who in this case. Many people believe the mother was raising Sarah but that just isn't the case. Sarah's Aunt was raising her along with other siblings. The Aunt was allegedly dating Tom Leggs. I cannot answer if she knew Tom's background but I'm sure we'll find that out at a later point.

    Hi Patty G. It seems like the aunt put the children to bed around:
    9:30pm (Tues) - children were put to bed (last time seen)
    Early AM (Wed) family member went to check on her and sister
    10:00AM - reported missing

    Looks like they didn't check on the girls during the night hours.

    No signs of forced entry - maybe Leggs had a key or was there during the evening.

    Thomas J. Leggs lives close by and it seems his parents live down the road from him, so not sure why he would be spending the night.
