Im in chat if anyone wants to say anything there
I confess that I am tickled that tomorrow I have a seminar presentation that requires the use of my laptop. I just hope that I can be a good girl and not log on here while other people are doing their presentations.
Maybe she should ask the guy shes still friendly with where her daughter is? It sure would solve a lot of problems.
(OT: You can us the phone as a modem to tether your computer to the internet for free, using PDAnet -- depending on the make of the phone...)
Wish I could talk hubby into making the trip but right now we have four feet of snow in front of the camper.
I have not seen one news article today on this case. anyone else?
It tells me a lot that after 5 weeks, LE still hasn't taken Clint up on his offer to take a polygraph. JMO
Another thing that can be useful if you a phone that can do it is text messages frequently go out in places where you can't make a call. If you can get a text message out there are apps you download for free (or a dollar) that will text your gps coordinates to anyone you enter.
The thread in the Parking Lot will be opening again in a few minutes.
My concern is what happened those first few days HD was missing. Did local LE assume she was missing? Lot's of evidence can go missing after the first couple of days if it wasn't investigated as a crime very quickly.
This is a practice that I don't understand, or condone. There needs to be something in place to differentiate the probability of the lost one being a runaway, and if the probability is low, they should get on the ball and treat as a crime. mo
I just have to say, and I don't feel bad doing it....because Hailey loves them too,
:great: Go Steelersssssssssssssssssssssssssssss!
Well, sorry... It's OT but it is SuperBowl Sunday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ITA. I think ALL runaways are endangered.
If the parents are not forthcoming and 100% honest when making that initial contact there is not much LE can do to make that determination. It automatically takes the focus off the child and much more likely that they child is going to get "They do this at this age, I am sure she will be home soon" brush off.
I cannot blame LE on this one personally.
There are still people right now that think she might have run away.
BD can't tell a sequence of events to save her life.
Who knows what she actually said when she contacted them.
She says now she was adamant she didn't run away but I am not convinced she didn't say something wishy washy and circular when making the report that gave them the brush off opening.
Haileys age and the way she was living in this dysfunctional mess it would not be a wild thought that she ran away or had just lied and was somewhere else. I would want out of there too.
and the rabbit hole has been reopened
A valid concern. I'm not going to criticize LE, because statistically speaking most teens do end up to be "runaways", or located with a friend or relative. We don't know when LE started to "smell a rat", at what point conflicting accounts of the timeline started to emerge. If HD was the victim of a soft kill, there would also be a lack of forensic evidence. Sparky said pretty early on that they didn't have a smoking gun..and without that LE's hands are tied in obtaining warrants because judges don't approve fishing expeditions. OTOH, for all we know more warrants were executed, and they were able to keep them from being released under FOIA. FWIW.
Oh, and :banghead:
I know how you feel BeanE. It's all frustrating. I can't get over the fact that there is only one LE officer working this case. Hailey's been cleared from being a runaway and is has been missing approx 6 weeks. Her case needs to be worked by LE. As far as volunteer searchers go, I hope more will be recruited.
(I also hope Hailey gets her own thread soon.)
