    I think that media is going by the photos that have been circulated from inside the convenience store. I thought it looked like a koala, until another source said it was an elephant. I can see that now as well.

    Rampant rumors distracting from search for Dulce Maria Alvarez, FBI says
    [​IMG]

    Dulce Maria Alavez, 5, was last seen in the area of Bridgeton City Park on Monday.

    “No detail is too small,” she said, also urging potential tipsters not to fear police. Law enforcement will not be asking questions about immigration status, she said.

    “Time is of the essence,” Webb-McRae said. “We need to find young Dulce, and as time passes it gets harder to find her.”

    Earlier Thursday, investigators with multiple agencies, including the FBI, searched in Bridgeton’s City Park with a bloodhound named Alec. The dog was given a piece of clothing to sniff and then started off around the playground, leading two detectives on a taut leash as he kept his nose to the ground."

    No, definitely not a Jersey thing... there are many, many vans with sliding doors... the confusion I was referring to in my earlier post was because it is now being said that the vehicle MAY have been an SUV. An SUV is totally different than a van and I have never seen one with a sliding door of any kind, whereas just like you, I have seen plenty of vans with sliding doors. IDK, maybe it's something being lost in translation if this possible new description info was being given by someone who's first language may not be English. MOO, JMO, IMHOO

    A bit over 72 hours now, not good. I am still thinking this was a stranger abduction, which is bad. I would love to believe a "family member" took her because that would give me hope, but I do not believe that. I do not believe family is involved. I am not going to criticize the birth mother for anything. The "Mom" took her two little children and little sister to the park and bought them treats beforehand and went to the park to let the little children play, as I imagine she has likely done many times before as it was her "in the neck of the woods", imo. I also believe that "Mom" was comfortable being there and it was likely familiar territory. I agree with others," a perfect storm". I am hoping I am proved wrong and that someone tonight is keeping this little 5 year old safe and sound and loving her, but I do not believe that is the case at this point. I think of two scenarios - Jaycee Dugard and/or Adam Walsh and both had horrible outcomes.

    I was actually responding to this post by @JudgeJoe "But if they know the PERP is undocumented, they still may be hesitant to call."

    What I meant was hopefully people calling in care more about a little girl than they do about turning in a possible undocumented suspect.

    Maybe use Crime Stoppers form. There is a link on the Bridgeton Police web page. At least that would provide a lead. And then maybe the ensuing investigation would turn up enough evidence.

    So what if he’s undocumented? They are scared because they might be!

    I agree and I think this has gone a bit round the block, so to speak. My comment about caring more about a missing girl over the perp possibly being undocumented was just a response to a post mentioning it. Perhaps the original poster worded it incorrectly because it makes more sense that someone who is undocumented themself would hesitate to report anything. Taking the undocumented boyfriend into custody certainly didn't help that situation.

    I drive the Parkway and Turnpike north for my commute and have not seen one alert on any of the electric highway signs.

    Same for me. We took the turnpike from Exit 2 to Lincoln Tunnel yesterday, and back. I saw nothing.

    She's reportedly 5, so she is old enough for Kindergarten. Plus she is pictured wearing the uniform required by the Bridgeton School District. So I'd guess she is a K student.

    I posted up thread that today I drove on Rt 1 south in Woodbridge and there was an amber alert sign for the red van. I don’t understand why they wouldn’t do that for the Parkway and Turnpike.

    IMO it's concerning that the witnesses couldn't tell the difference between an SUV and a van, especially if the description was given by the basketball players in the park, assuming they were young. Like you said, they could describe the perp as having acne and no facial hair and the van/SUV having tinted windows but they couldn't tell which it was? I dunno... I'm actually surprised no one in the lot could even identify the make.

    JMO and MOO but I'm having trouble with that.

    Maybe they need to interview these young men again? They know vehicles! I feel like the answers are here.

    I occasionally see the silver alerts posted and when I received the blaring Amber Alert on my phone at 11:20pm Tuesday night I was expecting to see the alert on t least one electronic board going north when I left for work Wednesday morning at 6am but there was nothing and yesterday and today the same.

    Thank you Zecats and Stunned too. I noticed that on one of the good maps posted, that there is a high school and elementary near the park. IMO-not saying that this is Dulce or her aunt's school, but what if someone had been watching Dulce or even her aunt at school (maybe even before the day she was kidnapped) and followed them to where they got ice cream and then to the park. Maybe the aunt was even the original target and took Dulce instead. Also, IMHO, this is really a stranger abduction and Dulce's family doesn't have anything to do with it. With the 2 schools being close by, I would think they would have cameras that would of shown any red van or even a varying color of red on them.
