    They were going to the post office to "play on the grass"? Does that sound a little unusual to anyone else? Was this a common thing that kids in the area did, in lieu of a park or playground, or was there some reason in particular that these two did it?

    These children went missing from Albuquerque which is the desert. There were probably few area's with grass. It might have been a highlight to go play on the grass, especially with grass soft enough to play on if it was maintained by the city in front of the post office. It may have only been maintained between fall and spring months as well. I know that to be the case for certain communities in Phoenix, not much grass and none in the summer.

    Were the children ever seen playing at the post office with the grass and was that facility on a busy street or highway? I'm thinking of a place where there would have been quite a bit of through traffic with persons driving past from out of town who could have taken the youngsters far from their home. Of course, if this was the case, there could have been a better chance for someone to have seen something. I know some post office buildings are on busy streets while others are located on quiter residential ones.

    Kat, did you notice at the end of the video report the news anchor said that the old statute would not allow them to file any charges! so the goal is to find the children and give them a proper resting place and close the case?
