    http://www.seattlepi.com/local/article/Washington-s-missing-children-4042005.php#photo-3469763

    (and an updated list, put out recently): http://www.kirotv.com/gallery/news/washington-states-missing-children/gCCpK/#3735554

    and another, from a few days ago, some kids thankfully marked 'recovered': http://www.wsp.wa.gov/crime/mischild.php

    I found this article back in February while sleuthing the Travis Padgett case, where Padgett was arrested for feeding meth to minors and pimping them out to a bunch of creepy female child molesters. Horrible story...

    Anyway, I was so concerned about the idea of this creep prostituting minors for meth that I went looking for missing kids in Yakima, WA. What I found was this article - and was immediately stunned by the sheer volume of children missing from foster homes.

    Is it a coincidence that the foster kids are almost all very good-looking? Are these kids simply runaways, or are they being abducted/recruited for more sinister purposes?

    Also, I'd really like to know if Washington has an abnormal number of kids missing from foster homes, or if this is average for all states. It just seems like a LOT of foster kids missing in 2012/2013...

    Where ARE they? Have some been found? Are they all still missing? What?

    So here, I plan to do the following:

    Dedicate a post to every child on that list, including those not in foster care. In that post, I'd like all news reports, missing persons links, everything that can be sleuthed, including links to threads here on WS if there is one.

    If anyone would like to "adopt" a child on the list to research, please - do!


    I intend to start my quest with Adrian Makiah Dillon, aka 'Pandora' - who is probably 18 now, so I'm guessing nobody much is giving a carp as far as Govt agencies go... He just looks like a kid who desperately needs some love and care, so I'm starting with him.

    Well! I found "Pandora", in about 30 seconds. Alive and well and just as quirkily clad, and apparently gainfully employed.

    He's updated his FB very recently, and all seems well. YAY!

    One down, I guess! :)

    Next, Destiny Rose Hicks. 18, disappeared from a Seattle foster home on Oct. 19, 2011.

    It seems Destiny is still missing. There's not much about her out there aside from the missing notices, and they don't say much. Preliminary WS search shows no thread for her here. So this looks like a job for tomorrow, after some sleep..

    Respectfully snipped. I've noticed that too, in general, runaway girls are good-looking. I don't know if foster kids tend to be more good looking, but runaways certainly seem to be. Not sure I'd use the word "recruited" - it sounds like an organized, purposeful process. Maybe "invited" to run away is more the word I'd use. Good-looking girls probably get frequent invitations from men to come away with them. And invitations from other kind of wayward girls, too, to run away with them.

    Girls who are markedly unattractive seem to not be candidates to be chronic runaways, it seems. Interesting.

    Silky, Catfancier - awesome! Thanks for 'adopting' those kids.

    Info on Destiny Rose Hicks is hard to come by. No articles, no interviews with her family, and she's been missing almost TWO YEARS now. Who has a daughter go missing and not kick up a fuss? -- people whose kids are in foster care, apparently.

    http://www.wsp.wa.gov/crime/docs/mischild/Hicks_Destiny.pdf

    She's out there, somewhere! And needs a WS thread, it seems.



    I found an article with some disturbing numbers in it.. In 2012, 74 kids were listed as missing in WA. 45 of those went missing from state supervised care.

    This is quite an undertaking, Ausgirl. It looks like this article you posted has 66 missing children listed. http://www.kirotv.com/gallery/news/washington-states-missing-children/gCCpK/#3735530 Is anybody planning to make a master list of the missing children so people don't duplicate efforts?

    One of the more recent appears to be Annmarie Rold. Listed as an endangered runaway.
    http://www.missingkids.com/missingk...seNum=1220301&orgPrefix=NCMC&searchLang=en_US

    We have a thread for her in the Missing Person Information and Support section of the forum, but not a discussion thread. http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=218331&highlight=rold

    WA - AnneMarie Rold, 16, Medical Lake, 11 Jul 2013
    DOB: Jan 30, 1997
    Missing: Jul 11, 2013
    Height: 5'5" (165cm)
    Eyes: Blue
    Race: White
    Age Now: 16
    Sex: Female
    Weight: 115lbs (52kg)
    Hair: Blonde
    Missing From:
    MEDICAL LAKE

    I can't find much more about her.

    Claire, a masterlist was something I wanted to do - but I've picked a stupid time of night to post this, and my insomnia will probably wear me out before I got a list finished tonight.

    If nobody's done one by morning, it'll be the first thing I do.

    List should be taken from the newest updated link in the original post, I think, as some of the kids in the first link have (yay) been found.

    Nicholas Lippert, aka "Kaite" is my next adoptee:

    http://www.wsp.wa.gov/crime/docs/mischild/Lippert_Nicholas.pdf

    Missing Since June 25, 2012. Sex: Male. Race: White. DOB: January 19, 1996. Age at Missing: 16. Missing From: Edmonds, WA

    Nicholas was born male but appears to identify as female under the chosen name of Kaite Ann Malaski.

    I picked up Joseph Michael Crapser, 16, known as Joey and missing since Feb 28, 2013.

    I can find nothing on him except the missing wsp poster, http://www.wsp.wa.gov/crime/docs/mischild/Crapser_Joseph.pdf but I have found a joey crapser on twitter with a total of 4 tweets. Might be worth a call just in case. Probably nothing but

    I found a comment on youtube:

    nicholas lippert 11 months ago

    thanks so much for your video i"m gay and proud i am m sixteen i cant think of any other life. your an inspiration. much love to all -nick


    Right age. No other info available on that account, though. It's not a very common name, so I'm hoping that means Kaite/Nicholas is out there somewhere safe if not found - s/he's been missing for longer than 11 months now.

    Kaite has a big social conscience, and was involved in suicide prevention groups as well as gay awareness groups before s/he (I don't know which Kaite would prefer.. so that'll do) went missing.

    Unfortunately, there are far more missing children in Washington that are just on that WSP page and in those articles. :( But not all of those kids on there are Foster kids. Just wanted to make that distinction.

    Check out my Washington's Missing album here - https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.290118679451.142174.288753959451&type=3

    Through that Facebook page, I also have an "Adopt a Missing Person" program. Kind of like what you're doing here. Picking a kid, usually in your area, and being their "advocate", so to speak. (Also do it for Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, Wyoming, and BC Canada.)


    I also made a map, a geographical representation of Washington's missing children - https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=211902822057040633612.0004dec3f2efb4f9ea017&msa=0

    Obviously the most recent "runaways" are not on there or I'd be updating the map every 20 minutes. But still, there's 130 kids just in Washington alone on that map.

    I pulled a list from this site, which was updated August 8, 2013: http://www.wsp.wa.gov/crime/mischild.php

    They are alphabetic by last name. On the website, there are a 88 total listed including 25 "recovered", leaving 63 children missing. Below is the list of those 63 children compiled from the one website. For a more complete list of children missing in the state of Washington, please see posts by SheWhoMustNotBeNamed.

    Based on the limited information given for each case on the wsp.wa.gov website, 7 of the 63 missing children are in foster care. (There could be more.) I added the word foster next to those 7 children.

    I have the list in an Excel file so it is easy to sort and add/delete. My next step is going to start searching the forum and pasting in links where we already have treads started.

    I just emailed http://www.wsp.wa.gov/crime/mpu.htm about Tahjarae and this might be worth emailing them about this as well. He may be afraid to go home or not think he is wanted etc. or have gotten into trouble since then on his own, i mean danger not trouble. That email addy is good for all the kids in the wsp list.
