i think the odds of him wandering off and then being nabbed by a stranger are slim to none.
LE says there is one RSO in the area - did they specifcally say that the RSO lived across the street from Joshua's house. Found via Family Watchdog:
I don't know. Sometimes I think parties are times when it is most likely for a child to get hurt or go missing. Lots of drownings happen during parties. It's like no one can imagine that a kid could get hurt or wander with so many adults around, so no one really pays attention. That's why there is a rule about having designated people to watch the pool during a party, for example, with the pool watchers taking shifts, so the kids in the pool are constantly under surveillance. People get into what they're doing and sometimes things can go unnoticed. I don't know.
ETA: I can see a few of you had the same idea!
If he just slipped out the door why would he have taken "some toy balls" with him? He's 18 months old! How could he have carried them out and managed to get down steps or whatever? This makes no sense.
sorry if someone already mentioned this...I haven't read all the posts yet.
Supposedly, the father saw him last @ 8 pm. And he, supposedly, was in the livingroom with all the friends watching the game, when he was was pulling on his hat.
Mom says she last saw him at 7;40, in the bedroom. Dad says he last saw him at 8 pm. So i am assuming that the friends watching the game can verify the dads sighting at 8 pm. But you never know.
I just find it hard to believe anyone inside of the home could have hurt him without the others seeing/hearing it. It is a small place, it was full of visitors, and sound travels.
I guess I want to believe the mom. Her gut tells her something is hinky with one of the male visitors, who came and left and then returned. I wish we knew more about that situation, like where did he go, how long was he gone etc.
I looked on the TX state RSO directory - the offender that lives in that neighborhood is registered on a crime committed over 15 years ago - the victim was a 8 or 9 year old girl..
Seems like I read that he had been cleared by LE -
I agree it seems odd he would have wandered and been grabbed - especially since it was dark when he turned up missing ..
This is so sad - he's such a little cutie ..
I don't believe the parents were involved either.
They have been right out there doing what they can, passing out fliers, answering media questions.
There are plenty of pictures and I haven't heard of any money deals.
The father apparently keeps his 6 yr old son which shows responsibility.
Are there any custodial issues?
Why would he admit to having 3 polygraphs if he was guilty?
that is probably true. although we do know there was one RSO living directly across the street. If I am standing at my kitchen sink doing dishes I have a direct view of the house across the street. I have seen their puppy escape twice and both times I was the first one to know and the one to return him. [Not saying the RSO did it btw.]
I don't know if it's been speculated he took the ball with him. It was reported yesterday that it was an old ball one of the searchers found and placed on the mailbox so it could be claimed.
I'm hanging on to the 'slim' hope side. Stranger things have happened.
Joshua has front page coverage at Texas Equusearch.
Long time lurker here. I'm trying to find out where the info is posted on what I can or can not post. Could somebody please point me out to that. I am not very familiar with message forums.
Anyway I live 20 minutes from NB and just finished watching the local news (WOAI) They mentioned what was taken from the backyard. Am I able to post what they said without having a link to support it?
I realize the news makes mistakes and I would really hate to post something and have the news be wrong in the end. Which is why I've been trying to find a msm link but have been unable to find what I've heard.
Found the msn link for you:
A bucket and a tarp is what the linked video says - is that what you heard?
It bothers me that in every interview... Josh Sr. looks away from the camera...he's always looking to the side or looking down...never straight into the camera.
I'm at a total loss as to where Joshua could be...I want to believe that no one hurt him, I want to believe that he's still alive...I sincerely want a miracle for this family and lil' Joshua but there is something here that is just so not right...where is the panic? Does anyone else see it, because I do not.
I'm not saying there is a wrong way or a right way to act when your child is missing, but I know what I've see from others who have experienced this nightmare...Deena was panic stricken when Somer was missing, KC was cool as a cucumber (although Caylee wasn't actually missing), Drew was cool as a cucumber when Laci; who was pregnant with baby Conner, went missing...
Does anyone see what I'm getting at or is it just me?
Yes that is what I heard. Thank you for finding the video for me
I'm leaning towards one of the 7 adults knowing exactly what happened and where the baby is...
And here is what you probably saw live from the news/video link:
Elepher, if you read back, I believe that LE cleared the RSO...
Yes, that is what has been reported in MSM several times. I didn't realize that the RSO was directly across the street from Joshua's house and it floored me.
