Ahhh, Serenity, will we ever know for certain what happened to you?
After walking about 50 yards north of the complex entrance, Serenity went out of sight of the granddaughter, whose view was blocked by trees and topography.
I am going to need gps cords for this ...and probably a math nerd. Because I hate mathing .If you look at the aerial photograph on Google Maps, the distance would have to be about 440 feet, or 146 yards, before she would have left the witness' line of sight.
She could be seen for a football field and a half.I am going to need gps cords for this ...and probably a math nerd. Because I hate mathing .
So she went out of sight after three power line poles or phone line poles or whatever you call those things they hang wires on and plant every 50 yards. About that far out of sight ? Next they look (80 minutes) (thought i heard) Then the whole running and next walking ...that is gonna effect calculation. And after the 80 minutes a 911 call is placed?
I Went back to the first post on this thread , somehow missing that this is thread 4 ! still 3 threads behinds. So BBs. Again.
Reading the 4 threads here, as well as articles about the case. Many of these questions have been answered.I am totally new to this thread. Knew of the case, but didn't get involved, until a great video by Noor Jasmine I just saw on YT.
“Dennard was last seen by a woman dropping off a relative at the Children's Home, according to the sheriff's office at the time.”The more I learn, the more I lean toward the theory she never ran outside, but was taken someplace else (MOO)
“Chad and Kasandra Dennard, Serenity's primary parents at the time of the disappearance, previously told the Journal she had behavioral health problems stemming from the trauma of being removed from her biological parents and living with multiple foster families. They said they enrolled Serenity with the inpatient program at the Children's Home because years of outpatient therapy wasn't working well enough, and felt she was a risk to herself and others.”
- Did her adoptive father put her back into the BCH because he got a new gf/wife and wanted to dedicate time to her, or new wife/gf didn't like having a "needy" child around?
- Would love to ask her adoptive father HOW do you reckon with yourself when it comes to adopting a child and then sending them back to the very same children's home that had traumatized them to begin with, causing their RAD diagnosis?
- Did her adoptive parents try to get her intensive trauma therapy or anything at all or just send her right back? I'm nauseated at this case..
I agree,especially with things coming out lately about facilities like this. Plus the fact that they waited so long to report her missing. That does not sit right with me at all. MOOThe problem children with severe behavior and emotional disorders, is impulsive behavior, and lack of insight. I have no doubt that Serenity wanted to leave, and ran away. It was more than likely impulsive, and that day started out mild, chinook. Then, by 4pm, it was a whiteout blizzard.
Sad. The real issue is the facility, with lack of staff and poor emergency response. Shocking in a place that is supposedly a specializes in children with behavior disorders.

Money, money, money! I hate these places also and wonder about the people who place children in them. IMONo. I hate places like this, quick bucks in Medicaid. Good grief, the place had no cell service, and apparently limited phone service? Really? A supposedly approved medical facility, approved for care of emotionally disturbed children, had no access to emergency services?!
And obviously, run on super cheap budget. Two staff members for how many children?! Children who have behavioral disorders, often need one on one direct care. But, that cuts into profits, of course. And so many of these places tout that they are "non profit", right.
In the end, this is all about money. And the people at the top who were responsible for the care of these children dropped the ball. It really is negligent homicide. INMO. But they never get charged, close up shop, and move on to set up the same scam in another area.
I still lean toward the probability that she hid somewhere, not wanting to be caught, and that hiding place was never found. But the only thing we know, even after all this time, is that she simply disappeared without a trace.Serenity was not dressed appropriately for being outside in 14 degree weather. Wind chill conditions could have been below zero. The staff took 80 to 101 minutes to call 911(depending on which version you believe). Running in cold weather causes a person to sweat. When they stop, the sweat freezes creating a layer of ice under their clothes. Sad to say but Serenity probably collapsed and died before LE even got there.
The cruel truth is that she probably hid or fell into a depression in the ground, a creek, ditch, or ravine and was covered first by snow and later by leaves or other natural forest debris. Each fall more leaves bury her deeper.
She deserves to be found but it may take years or decades before someone stumbles over her.
Reading this thread makes me want to go look for her.
Some of those families ,others however are pushed into these positions by welfare workers .People who have no skills faith or common sence being told what to do by protocal because they are educated and do what they are told because they need the job and paid good money to be trained in the career . They get a check and go home.That would be the family, who thought they were doing the best thing for her with her behavioral issues.
