    Authorities today are searching Grundy County to find two missing Independence children after police found the children's duffle-bag of clothing.

    Independence police said the bag was found in a wooded area, three to five miles east of Trenton, Mo., and south of Missouri 6.

    Lindsay, 8, and Samuel, 7, have been missing since June 6 when their father Daniel Porter failed to return them to his estranged wife.

    Independence authorities are still looking for eight-year-old Lindsay and seven-year-old Samuel Porter.
    Searchers found clothing over the weekend packed by the children's mother. The clothing was found in Trenton, near the area deputies arrested their father Daniel Porter, Thursday.
    He was supposed to take the kids back to his estranged wife, last Sunday but never did.
    Porter told police his kids were in Oklahoma City, but would not say exactly where. http://www.kshb.com/kshb/home/article/0,1925,KSHB_9410_2955958,00.html

    "MYRTLE, Ark. -- Law officers think itÂ’s possible that two missing children from northern Missouri are in a remote rural area of Boone County north of Harrison. No one has reported seeing the children since June 4."


    I hope a relative, however misguided, does have them.

    I'm really worried about these two children. It doesn't sound good. Why would their clothing turn up and not them with it?? If they are alive, what are they wearing, the same old clothes they have been wearing for days?? Why isn't the father talking??

    This reminds me of that case last summer where the two children were taken by the father from like CT, I think, and he turned up in CA but the kids were never found, I don't think. He confessed to killing them but could not tell the authorities exactly where he buried them along the route, I think it was supposed to be in OH somewhere but I'm not sure they were ever found.

    I believe there is a special place in hell for parents who kill their own children.

    3 Bound Bodies Wash Ashore

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The bodies of a man and 2 children, bound together, have washed ashore a lake in Wisconsin.

    Poor babies!

    I read this over in Crimes in the News-Is it possible this is connected? This is such horrible news...prayers for those babies.

    Here's an update. Sounds as if LE suspects a boating accident - they believe the adult may have tied the children to him to keep them all together. So sad to think of all of them floating together, hoping to be rescued.

    I don't think it sounds like a boating accident with them waiting to be found -- they apparently had bags of sand attached to them and one of the boys had sand filling his pockets with the pockets zipped shut. I'd say it seems decidedly like not wanting to be found. Very sad indeed.

    The Porter Case was on Dr. Phil tonight. He's going to do anything he can to find them. They talked to Dan's best friend, who claims to know nothing about the kids whereabouts. Tina, the kids' mother, doesn't believe it, so a polygraph will be issued. She told them that Dan was going to take the kids out of state, but didn't think that it was a necessary piece of info to LE. All I can do is shake my head at that.

    Has anyone heard of this case? It is horrific!! I first saw it on Dr. Phil. Go to www.drphil.com "Help me get my kids back" It was aired last Wednesday. It is the story of 2 children who were kidnapped by their father, to spite their mother. The father is in custody but the children seem to have vanished. He will give the authorities no information.

    Then for more information, go to their website www.samandlindsey.org

    Lisa flunked the polygraph. No surprise there! I can't understand her attitude. She has information that is is not sharing. She told them that after Dan took the children he told her that he left them with a friend on a farm near where he grew up. Why didn't she let LE know about this before? I don't know whether or not she knows where the children are, but I do know that she is one dumb woman. :furious:

    Yeah, I just saw that on the show. I didn't like the look of her the first time I saw her. It really isn't a shock she lied. She's gotta know where those kids are, she failed by quite a bit on that question (the lowest number to indicate deception is -36, she was -31). Why won't she just tell everyone where those kids are?! She just seems so cold when talking to Tina Porter. I also hate the way she's playing the role of the victim. "I don't see why Tina could just call me, why did I have to call her?" Um, Hello? Her kids are missing. It's probably not the first thing on her mind to call you. Woman needs an attitude adjustment.
    JMO,
