    I have not read everything out there. I just wonder when was the last time Noah was seen by a non family member ? I am not saying they are not telling the truth . At this point things are just so strange. It is like he just vanished . Praying for this family.

    That is NOT correct. Cougars aren't spooked by much of anything and certainly not by humans. The attack is instant. The cougar is silent. Little blood from a broken neck. They carry dogs over six foot fences. They fell 700 pound elk and considerably larger moose. Any evidence such as a small amount of blood would be invisible on the thick forest floor. IMO

    I think the snow helped in this case, and the fact that the dogs owners were out there quickly to look for their dog, possibly scaring off the lion. I'm not sure that blood is always noticeable but Im not the expert either. Would scent dogs even pick up on blood? Just wondering, also, maybe they should get some luminol in the area if they think thats a possibility.

    They sure can. On that show Mountain Men on the history channel that is what one of the guys on the show does. His dog tracks them to order to catch them and remove them out of areas close to humans/homes.

    "Rich and his hounds track Rich's nemesis, the killer mountain lion Three-Toes, across the length of Montana's Ruby Valley."

    I'm hoping that the neighboring houses were searched, preferably with dogs, but there hasn't been any mention in msm about it. What we do know is that grandma's house was searched, locals were asked to check their property, including outbuildings, and that the FBI has interviewed the neighbors. Also, all sex offenders in the area were checked out thoroughly by LE early on.

    It looks like that business changed locations a year or two ago, perhaps. And then I think it closed down completely.

    I am hoping areas across the street were checked! If not...then that is a huge mistake, IMO.

    All children are different. I've seen some that don't want to leave their parents side. And others who will just run off and not be afraid at all. We don't know Noah's personality at all.

    I'm pretty sure all options are being considered, regardless of what Sheriff Weaver is saying. From past cases we know that when a child goes missing parallel investigations are opened; while SAR looks for the child LE begins interviewing the caregivers and investigates other avenues, like RSO's. And in Noah's case Tennessee Wildlife is involved so they're been exploring the possibility of an animal attack too.

    So many agencies and people involved yet little Noah is still missing. :(

    OT -- there are magnetic-type door alarms for about $20 at home stores. They go off when the door is opened or closed. It might be a worthwhile investment for your little adventurer.

    I doubt if there is a real big mountain lion population in Pinson, Tennessee...........elevation 475 feet.

    Agreed. One of mine escaped from our house at an age considerably younger than Noah before I knew they could even work a door knob and didn't have the door locked. The weather was absolutely terrible (single digit temps and deep snow) and they were quite a ways from our house before being discovered by a neighbor. I did not even know they had left the room in which they were playing until I felt a breeze and realized the door was open. An adult analyzing the situation from an adult's perspective would probably have concluded there was no way they left the house but they absolutely did.

    Let me take a moment to say this. I think little Noah is there somewhere and has just been missed. I don't know where specifically, but I believe he's there. I think he wandered off playfully, may have crawled part of the time under briar and brush, may have fallen in a hole, slipped and fell, or succumbed to the elements, layed down and fell asleep. Or, he may have been attacked by a mountain lion, which most here doubt, which is fine, because I doubt it too. Occam's razor tells us he's in the woods due to one of the above. But for those who are concerned and perplexed because the dogs haven't found anything, then tend to skip right over the mountain lion attack to the preferable foul play, when there is absolutely no indication whatsoever that's what happened. These dogs are not infallible and it seems that more often than NOT when it comes to a small child lost in the forest, the dogs are no help in finding them. IMO, it is a better course to not put too much emphasis on these dogs, in this case.

    I'll bet the first LE officers on the scene are just kicking themselves for not setting up a BIG perimeter and looking for little tiny footprints.

    It sounds as if the initial search zone got trampled PDQ.

    They live at every elevation, not just in the mountains.

    Aren't mountain lions and cougars the same thing? Here in Montana we call them Mountain lions. Kinda like potatoe potato depending on where you live.

    I too think little Noah will be found pretty close to where he first went missing. I have seen this happen many times on this forum (sadly).
    The care the very extended community has shown has been amazing. It has somewhat restored my faith in humanity.
    My heart goes out to Little Naoh's family, especially grandma as I am a grandma myself and realize how fast our precious little ones can get away from us. This is heartbreaking.
    God bless little Noah and his family and this community.

    Yes, Mtn Lion = Cougar = Puma = Panther. I think you are right that it is a regional word.
