    [HR][/HR]Family, friends search for missing Norfolk teen
    Staff, 13News Now 5:46 p.m. EDT April 10, 2015

    NORFOLK -- Family and friends were searching Friday for 18-year-old Anjelica "AJ" Hadsell, who hasn't communicated with them since March 2.
    Norfolk Police said Thursday they were trying to confirm whether she was spotted on the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University.

    [...]
    Her friends have been coming in and out of her home and passing out missing flyers in the neighborhood.
    "This is not Anjelica. We all know her, we know how she would act and this is out of character," said her longtime friend Andre Barr.

    In this photo, ( and video), as well as other photos & video prior to the arrest, I noticed that WH has inserted himself in the middle. He did it both emotionally & physically. I would like to see more photos

    Moving on...one of the things that really stood out to me early on was that the first neighborhood search (on march 6?), and the Tidewater Dr. search, were both lead and directed by Wesley Hadsell. From everything I've read, he was the one who told searchers what to look for (pink top, leggings, ugg boots, white headband, cell phone & cell case). According to WH, it was Texty who discovered the first pieces of AJ's debit card. I have no idea if that is true or if it isn't true, but I do know that Wesley Hadsell was the one directing EVERYONE where to look. He was the one who lead everyone down Halprin Drive.

    Search for missing Longwood University student enters second week
    Posted 1:22 pm, March 9, 2015, by Alix Bryan, Updated at 01:38pm, March 9, 2015

    [...]
    Before she disappeared she sent several unusual text messages to her parents, police said. And her debit and credit cards were later found cut up.
    Norfolk officers were out Friday going door-to-door talking with neighbors about the missing teen.[HR][/HR]Is Anjelica Hadsell in danger? Family convinced missing teen taken against her will
    By Joe Fisher Published: March 13, 2015, 10:30 pm Updated: April 6, 2015, 11:26 am

    [...]
    “I’d say she’s screaming ‘help,'” Wesley Hadsell said. “She wants someone to find her. She wants us to come get her.”

    The desperate search into the Norview High School graduate’s disappearance is now in its eleventh day. Family and friends of missing 18-year-old Anjelica Hadsell say a big piece of their heart is missing.

    More than 20 people were out searching for the teenager again Friday. Mr. Hadsell said her cell phone sent a signal from the area of Tidewater Drive near Thole Street in Norfolk.

    [...]
    Mr. Hadsell told 10 On Your Side police have recovered pieces of his daughter’s debit card and her jacket, which a neighbor said he saw Anjelica wearing the day of her disappearance. The Norfolk Police Department has not confirmed that information, but they did tell WAVY.com they are vetting all leads. Police say they have had detectives assigned to this case every day since it was reported.

    "AJ’s friend found her credit card laying on the street one block from her home, according to Mrs. Hadsell. She said the credit card was sliced in half.

    “For me, it’s just the first thing that relates to her that I know for a fact that is hers …. I know that a broken credit card on the street means nothing, but I know that she doesn't have it on her,” Mrs. Hadsell said."

    AJ's credit card, sliced in half and found a block from her from her home is really bugging me. I don't feel like that means nothing, as Mrs. Hadsell said. Any thoughts?

    From the videos at the links posted above, her dad, friends, neighbors (about 50 people) were vigorously combing the streets. Her dad is very torn up...he was out there helping lead the search. As Londonrraine just posted above, some pieces of her credit card appear to have been found ("matching numbers"), and some homes have security cameras so hopefully there is something on them; detectives were shown in the videos as arriving towards the end of the search to follow up on the leads.

    It seems odd to me that if she was abducted by her home, that it would be an opportune moment to take the time to cut her credit card, just seems odd at this time...maybe it was thrown there later? Red herring? Taunting? (Thinking out loud)

    JMO: I do not have faith in sightings; they seem to very rarely pan out in the cases I've followed imo, so I will be surprised if anything comes of the college campus sighting. I'm hopeful though!

    None of this is sounding good at all. Hoping for AJ's safe return. I will definitely be keeping my eyes on this case.

    I anticipate that this case will get a lot of attention, as most cases out of Virginia involving youñg ladies (AM, MH, HG) seem to have. IMO, Virginia's LE groups have performed exceptionally thoroughly, resolute and at a higher caliber than other agencies in other cases out of other states that I've seen.

    Same old questions...any attempted abductions in the area? RSOs...? We know RAT and JLM are behind bars...Hopefully LE can provide more information soon as to phone pings, electronic footprint, etc.

    Everything is jmo.

    Her debit card was cut into pieces? And cut into so many pieces and scattered so it took a while to find all or most of it? Why do that if foul play is involved? I would think a criminal would leave her card intact somewhere hoping that someone would use it illegally and deflect the investigation away from themselves. I would like to know when that card was last used.

    Looking at the area on a map, the intersection of Halprin Drive and E. Little Creek Road has some businesses - Dunkin Donuts, Walgreen's, Wedgewood Plaza Shopping Center. Maybe quite a few blocks to walk, but I'm wondering if she grew up there she might have walked it more than a few times so she is accustomed to walking over to that area. I would hope Norfolk PD has pulled videos from some of those businesses.

    I was wondering the same thing - why would a criminal cut up their victims credit card? That sounds more like the actions of the card's owner....

    That green in the middle, labled Tarrallton park is then ementary school. She was last seen to the right of Tarralton where her family lives. The area directly to the left of Tarrallton is the housing area I spoke of, and it is connected to the school grounds by a foot bridge. I will make up a more detailed map in just a minute.

    That's Gate A1 for Norfolk International Airport. Gate 1 for Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek is at the intersection of East Little Creek Road and Shore Drive (Hwy 60).

    BTW, I went to Google Maps and if have her address right she lived about one mile from E. Little Creek Road. It is another 1.6 miles from the intersection of Halprin and E. Little Creek Rd and Gate 1. So farther than I originally thought.

    The bushy areas lining the school and surrounding areas are where there have been homeless people spotted, and abandoned 'camp' sites. Behind that, in the murky area, is all swamp.

    I came back to look at this interview again because it was really bugging me. During the interview, Mom gets a call that AJ's debit/credit card was found. She asks where it was found as she furiously writes away on her pad. The reporter then reports that a FRIEND found the debit/credit card. It's right there in this report. Somebody isn't telling the truth. Mom tells reporter a friend found it. Now Step Dad says he found it. Who really found it and how come LE are not part of this interview? I would think that the find of the debit/credit card would be worthy of a sound byte from LE. Am I wrong?

    >>Thursday afternoon the first week she was missing, I don’t know the dates I just know it was the first week that she was missing on Thursday. I got a call – I was at work out of town, not out of town, but an hour away. I wasn’t in my home residence, Norfolk home. But I was working and they called and said “so and so” found part of a credit card with her name. I didn’t ask questions at the time, rushed home whatever, the next day I organized a search party to search from my driveway up the road like you would be driving out of the neighborhood. --WH link>>

    Rhetorical questions...where is this? Has a search been conducted at this "out-of-town, not out-of-town", not "Norfolk home" place an hour away?
