    I lived in WV and TN for a little while, and I remember missing child cases there being on the local and national news rotation constantly until they were resolved. An older girl vanished in Clayton a few years ago, and I'm pretty sure Greta Van Sustern and Nancy Grace were all over it. It was resolved in a few days (she was murdered by teenagers).

    This should be in heavy rotation all over the news, and it's not.

    When this story first broke my first thoughts were "I don't think Bridgeton police can handle a stranger abduction." I believe a lot of time was wasted thinking it was the family or that she was lost. But I know that's always the first thought of LE.

    It wasn't (and still isn't) in heavy rotation in all of New Jersey. I live on the coast and commute north towards New York City every day. Other than the alert on my phone last Tuesday night, I have not seen or heard much on the news and did not see ANY electronic board alerts on my route up the Parkway from the LBI area to the Turnpike towards New York City.

    It seems the news is concentrated in the South Jersey/Philadelphia area.

    Yes this was another fear of mine. She wouldn't get the media attention she deserves because she's from a poor area and she's Mexican. She has a young mother who isn't very educated. I truly believe this played into her abductors plan. He probably didn't even think she would get this much local media attention due to the circumstances. Add in language barriers and immigration status issues and it's perfect storm.

    I remember the girl from Clayton. Murdered for her bike. I knew of the boys who killed her due to my job. Very very sad.

    I don't mean to be argumentative but if someone was close enough to see acne/facial sores and no facial hair, not even a tiny goatee, how come they cannot describe to a police artist, the shape of his face, oval, broad etc or if he had high cheekbones or wide set eyes or was wearing a baseball cap backwards.
    Police artists are very skilled at interviewing and producing sketches.
    Unless, the description is not from a live witness and therefore cannot be interviewed, but is in fact from a camera or LE doesn't have confidence in the accuracy or truth of the description.

    I'm on the boarder of Camden and Burlington Counties and it's headline news every morning. I'm about 45 minutes from Bridgeton.

    I'm wondering if there is more to this video that hasn't been released and maybe the video picked up a shot of the suspect and that's where the description is coming from??

    Can you describe every person you see for a short time? Not sure what you mean description of suspect could have come from video on camera. If abduction was on camera, I am pretty sure LE would have said so, and wouldn't waste so much time searching the park area.

    I ageee. It doesn’t even resemble the vehicle the eyewitnesses described. Until LE clarifies and states that is the car, we shouldn’t claim it is.

    There were 3 other witnesses interviewed on Saturday, including a child.

    We haven't heard of any new information they provided, though.

    The video is apparently from security camera of someone who lives close to the park area. I don't think there is any chance it picked up the description of the person driving it.

    I don't think anybody is claiming it is. Definitely other than color doesn't show the same vehicle described by the witness.

    I can’t imagine it counts as MSM since we can’t understand it. They could be saying that is definitely the car for what we know.

    When I saw city park, before the amber alert, I thought she was lost in the woods, and I feared she fell into the water, but I was hopeful she had huddled up under a tree somewhere. I even thought maybe she tried to walk home - families are always walking around Bridgeton. I was a city kid in Vineland. It's not necessarily neglectful or unsafe to have kids running through the blocks, even today. Kids still walk to school some places, and walk from the bus stops unattended. Moms have neighbors looking - there are always people around to help. She might have felt safe trying to walk.

    When the amber alert came through I thought ... omg we lost her, and my heart ached for Bridgeton because I realized they had no idea what happened to her.

    47 Telemundo certainly seems to be claiming that it is.

    Hmmm... this implies that the AA was based on that vehicle, but clearly the video and the car description in the AA don’t match. Why would cops release bad info? This is so confusing!

    Someone translated it.
    And they do sound like they are claiming it is the car.
    It was posted awhile back.
