i think lafayette refers to louisiana, in this situation. it's about a 2.-2.5 hour drive from houston! and not too far from lake charles, where grandma promised to take maleah if she were found (lake charles is just over the border of texas)! this could actually be GOOD news! maybe they really are trying to hide this little girl with family close by in louisiana, and she's not dead!!! (grandma also admitted they had a lot of family in louisiana in her news interview!) i am hopeful after reading this report. i am aware it's a long shot, but what a twist if the sighting is legit. could this whole charade be about taking her over state lines or something while there is an investigation? very interesting @ this sighting. i hope we hear more about this today.
