Got this alert on my work scanner earlier. Call me confused but wouldn't wandering off be more likely? Saying she was abducted but not sure from where? Do they have a who in mind? Lots of questions...

Could that 3 am be a typo? Why would they wait so long to issue an alert?

Oh my gosh she's adorable!

Is there anything in the text of the AA identifying a suspect or vehicle? Aren't those things required for AA activation?

Some resources I'm looking at online:


https://www.ncjrs.gov/html/ojjdp/nismart/03/ns4.html

"An estimated 58,200 children were abducted by a nonfamily perpetrator in the study year, including an estimated 115 victims of stereotypical kidnappings (table 1)..."

*********

Link to article opposing the stats of the above link:

***************

Child Abduction Facts
Some important information about kidnappings in the U.S.
http://www.parents.com/kids/safety/stranger-safety/child-abduction-facts/

"Based on the identity of the perpetrator, there are three distinct types of kidnapping: kidnapping by a relative of the victim or "family kidnapping" (49 percent), kidnapping by an acquaintance of the victim or "acquaintance kidnapping" (27 percent), and kidnapping by a stranger to the victim or "stranger kidnapping" (24 percent)."

This!!! What is the public suppose to be looking for besides a tiny child that could be hidden anywhere. Was she taken by vehicle, someone walking by the "outside" of the backyard? Did Dad see someone that had taken her from the home as they ran from the backyard? We know nothing but are suppose to be looking for her...how?!!!
Oh my gosh she's adorable!

Oh this hurts. Richardson is one of my old stomping grounds. Sweet baby, be safe...

Their house backs up to the DART rail line (right across the back alley) and is only 5 minutes away from the closest substation at Spring Valley Rd. Nice enough residential neighborhood; at least three pools but those have fences. But the area south or west of this neighborhood is not as safe. Hoping they find her fast.

This article has a map for those wanting to see one. It also states that "Sherin Mathews was last seen by her father outside the family’s backyard in the 900 blk. of Sunningdale."(The backyard is completely fenced).

ETA:

"Outside the family's backyard" is alley on 2 sides. I'm wondering if her father saw her abducted via car?

Maybe the disability qualifies her for the AA? I'm not sure how all of that works.
ETA: I smell fish. Very large fish.

So many missing babies right now.

Look after your kiddos, people.

Hoping she is found safe and soon.

Makes me think there was a gathering , cookout or something and many folks were coming and going in the yard. Surely they've located everyone who was there but no suspect description is bothering me.
