    The girls were last seen sitting on the sofa watching t.v. just after new years. (12:20)a.m. on the 1st.
    A missing persons report has been made with the Watauga Police dept.

    Sorry for lack of details...no other news reports could be found.

    Odd that they didn't even include the last name(s) of the girls. They do have unique first name spellings. I found this via Google. Not sure if this is their dad's obit, but what a coincidence if it's not:

    Wonder when the Amber alert will be coming out? The original article at wfaa only says that a missing persons report was filed with the Watauga PD.

    Praying for their safe return. :(

    nor can I and they don't live far from me. BTW, that was a 'you report'. Great catch on the tribute, it appears to be the girls' uncle, from what i can discern.

    It certainly does look the obituary of their father.

    The last names are included in the obituary.

    Yes - it appears Miriah was missing for a short time following Hurricane Katrina...

    http://eyesonkatrina.blogspot.com/2005/08/im-ok-line.html

    i've located 4 family members in jackson ms. still searching for 4 others. 2 brothers: JM and JK, a neice and nephew
    Miriah Melendez and BJ.

    Of note, limae39 is the user who posted the younews story on wfaa.com about the girls missing.

    What I want to know is this... if these girls have been missing since just after midnight on the 1st, why isn't there more info out there?? :( Sounds like the girls have been living/staying with their aunt.

    I've also found a myspace page for Miriah, but thankfully it's private (as it should be for someone her age!).

    From the link you provided, dream, I found this info on the WPD site regarding the Amber Alert System:

    How Do Amber Alerts Work?

    Once law enforcement has been notified about an abducted child, they must first determine if the case meets the recommended criteria set forth by the U.S. Department of Justice for activating an alert. Each of the following criteria must be met before an Amber Alert to be activated

    • There is reasonable belief by law enforcement that an abduction has occurred

    • The abduction is a child age 17 years or younger, or with a proven mental
    or physical disability

    • The law enforcement agency believes that child is in danger of serious
    bodily injury or death

    If these criteria are met, alert information must be put together for public distribution. This information may include descriptions and photos of the missing child, the suspected abductor, and a suspected vehicle along with any other information deemed valuable to identifying the child and suspect.
    *snipped*

    So - if this is a verified missing/endangered child(ren) case - they will most likely be posting an Amber Alert at some point.

    Wonder when the family submitted the missing persons report to the WPD? I guess I'll wait to see if this can be verified before getting in too deep.

    I am so glad you did this.
    What did they have to say?
    The person said that this had been reported to the police.


    I did not get a response to my email to Police Chief yet, but then I didn't expect one until Mon. morning.
    I did ask if the girls were entered into NCMEC and Texas missing persons clearinghouse.

    I just emailed wfaa.com and asked about this story.

    Could this be some kind of hoax?
    Last seen at 12;20am on the couch is kind of an odd statement.

    Well if her name is lisa and the children live with the aunt then it seems to fit, since many of the comments on the tribute were from a lisa melendez leclerc

    Additionally comments were left by an alexos carissa johnston who must be the cousin

    So it looks like your first find was pretty on-point coopzoo!

    Aunt has a myspace apparently

    http://www.myspace.com/limae39

    additionally the limae39 email was used in the katrina search so it appears somewhat legit

    It must be, because i talked to dispatch and he even checked with officials. Trust me, if 2 girls were missing in the DFW area, we would have heard about it immediately, with or without an Amber Alert. As we all know, the Amber Alert started from Amber Hagerman from Arlington, Tx ( same DFW area ).

    Yeah, that's why I started thinking *maybe* there was some truth to the story, even though there's not much info out there. Definitely weird.

    Thats exactly what i'm thinking? I mean it looks like that is the only video the user posted so i guess they could have used a name that would look like the aunts email, myspace id etc but why? Something isn't right here
