California Amber Alert

The AMBER Alert System began in 1996 when Dallas-Fort Worth broadcasters teamed with local police to develop an early warning system to help find abducted children. AMBER stands for America's Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response and was created as a legacy to 9-year-old Amber Hagerman, who was kidnaped while riding her bicycle in Arlington, Texas, and then brutally murdered. Other states and communities soon set up their own AMBER plans as the idea was adopted across the nation.

Gerry & Kate's Message:

It is two long years since Madeleine was taken. It is two years since we were a happy family of five. The pain and anxiety does not lessen, but our determination to find our beautiful daughter remains steadfast.

We are no longer looking for a 4 year old little girl – but a 6-year-old one. This is crucial. We are hoping that the new age-progressed image of Madeleine aged 6, produced by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in Washington, will help people to see what Madeleine may look like today.

On May 7th at 9pm (UK time), a televised ‘reconstruction’ of potentially significant and suspicious events from around the time that Madeleine was taken will be aired on Channel 4 in Britain. Much of this information has not been disclosed to the general public before and it is apparent that there are several highly important unanswered questions remaining. Just one of these answers could provide us with that vital piece of information that leads us to Madeleine. It is our hope that these reconstructed scenes will trigger somebody’s memory and prompt them to come forward – giving us the key piece of the jigsaw that we - and Madeleine especially -so desperately need.

Madeleine is still missing! She has the right to be back with her family. We have a responsibility to keep looking for her. We urge you – please do not give up on Madeleine.

Finally, we would like to thank everybody for their continued help and support. We know that we are not alone in our efforts to find Madeleine, or in our desire to have Madeleine back home with us where she belongs.

Thank you.

Sorry for hijacking your thread Peg.

I think I'll start a new thread as there's more stuff to add.

Let us know if you hear more news about this little boy. God willing.

Three-year-old Briant Rodriguez, who was kidnapped during a home invasion robbery nearly two weeks ago, may have been found in Mexico, authorities report.

The story began when two gunmen broke into his family's home, tied up his mother and her five children, robbed the house and left with Briant Rodriguez. Although an Amber Alert was sounded, there was no report of his whereabouts until today.

Detectives in San Bernardino County and the FBI received information from Mexican officials in the border town of Mexicali on Friday. Mexican authorities said that they had found a boy that could be Briant Rodriguez.

He was found wandering in Mexicali streets on Friday by a policeman. He has been reunited with his family. He appeared to be in good health with no obvious injuries. They will wait till he is comfortable at home before they even begin to ask him about his ordeal. They do have two suspect they are looking for. His beautiful hair had been shaved off.
ALOHA!!

MOTTO TO LIVE BY:

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, champagne in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming.

WOO HOO!!, what a ride!!!"
