    Police interviewed witnesses, which would certainly include the friend, if his story matches the father's what else do you want from the friend? Right now finding the girl is most important so it's best to stay focused on the woman that took her and finding people and video/ pictures of her during the time she was gone. And not distract from the search by focusing on people police have interviewed and not arrested or mentioned.

    I can't even begin to imagine

    This is the Sheetz in Delmont where she was found on surveillance cameras. This place is always packed and it sits on a busy highway. If she was there "exchanging" a child, she would have been seen by many people.

    It rained in Western PA very heavily last night. Many places flooded with 5 inches of rain. I hope this child wasn't thrown into a drainage ditch while strapped into her car seat.

    It would have to be a pretty organized situation with several pieces in place all the time, because she couldn’t possibly have found a “buyer” and been able to drop the baby off in 15 minutes.

    I don’t believe the story about the father selling her, but I also don’t see how it would be possible for her to have arranged a transaction so quickly.

    I really feel like the whole trafficking angle is a huge mid-direction while something else entirely is going on.

    It’s often everyone’s “go to” theory, but there are very few instances of such a thing happening in real life (as opposed to how often Hollywood would have us believe.)

    I’m curious as to what things you’re referring to.

    The police didn’t pull her over until 8:00, but I agree, the trafficking angle is far-fetched at best.

    I agree. I certainly don’t know all of my son’s friends.

    Her first call to her husband was about 5:00? Wasn't that like immediately after she drove off with Nalani?

    Loyalhanna Lake is north of New Alexandria. That's where the water search team was today.

    Right, but wasn’t she at the gas station 15 min after driving away?

    That’s...an odd thing to hope for.

    I just don't buy the selling of the baby for some reason. Until LE is able to scour every video they can at that Skeets where she went 15 minutes later and see if the baby was indeed in the vehicle with her when she pulled up there, we're at a stand still to pin this down to one or two scenarios that could have occurred.

    I forget- was it official that the father called 911 right after it happened- as in, it was caught on video that the time frame matches his story? The fact that LE has established a connection between the father and Nancy tells me there's much more to this. This wasn't a random incident. If he indeed had sold his little girl, there's no way that he would have called LE to try to catch Nancy in the act, know what I mean? I wonder if the friend was an innocent bystander and insisted that he call 911? Maybe that's why LE isn't talking about the friend right now. This person, in my opinion, may be key to some of this as a witness and not involved at all.

    Also, the father stated that right after him and his friend got out of the car, he was going to get Nalani out of her car seat, when Nancy took off. I mean, the door had to have been wide open, and I am sure if that was the case, someone driving by would have seen her driving with a car door open with a child there and at least honked their horn at her to pull over or something. That also doesn't jive with me for some reason- she would have had to pull over at the very least to close the door.

    I really want to hear more about the friend's version of this story. It is possible that they are involved, but they could also just be one of those persons at the wrong place at the wrong time- which is why for now, I am sitting on my hands.

    Nancy is insisting he sold his daughter. He's insisting she kidnapped the daughter.

    Also, what were they doing in that neighborhood? Did they know a friend that lived around there? He was obviously either giving her the little girl to take away, or he was going to visit someone around that area. It was a residential area, right? Was he getting out of the car with this friend to go to that friend's house when this occurred? Where did they originally meet Nancy for the ride?

    I'm really frightened that this child is not alive. I hope I am wrong and she is ok, but this story just smells like BS to me, from both sides.

    It was a typo. Should say "wasn't thrown into a drainage ditch"

    He said in the interview that video chatting was how they often spoke throughout the day. There is nothing unusual about them conversing in this manner.

    Exactly. There’s only one person in jail at this time.
