Trenton Duckett: 2-year-old missing since 2006

An age-progressed photo has been released for Trenton Duckett.

Trenton Duckett was only 2-years-old when he went missing from his home in Florida in 2006. 

Trenton’s mom Melinda Duckett called the Leesburg police on Aug. 27 and told them that someone had broken into the home.  A screen window in Trenton's bedroom had been cut,, but nothing else was ever found.

Josh Duckett, Trenton’s father was estranged from Melinda.  He took a polygraph test and police were satisfied he had nothing to do with Trenton’s disappearance.

Melinda did not take a polygraph test. 

Authorities found that the last time Trenton had been seen was when he was picked up from daycare on Aug. 25.  Josh had not seen him since June. 

Melinda went on the Nancy Grace show and faced tough criticism from Nancy.

Partial copy of transcript below - go to link above to read all.

MELINDA DUCKETT: I can remember perfectly well where I went that day. Just like I have spoken to the FBI with it. But as far as anything else goes we haven`t had very good dealings with any of them.

GRACE: Well don`t you think it would be a great idea, for instance if you were at a local JCPenney`s or Sears Roebuck to tell the viewers right now this is where we were. Did you see anything? Did you notice anything? Here`s your child`s picture? Here`s my picture. Help me. Where were you? Why aren`t you telling us where you were that day, you were the last person to be seen with him?

MELINDA DUCKETT: And we have already gone out and distributed the fliers and spoken to --

GRACE: Right, why aren`t you telling us and giving us a clear picture of where you were before your son was kidnapped?

MELINDA DUCKETT: Because I`m not going to put those kind of details out?

GRACE: Why?

MELINDA DUCKETT: Because I was told not to.

GRACE: Ms. Duckett, you are not telling us for a reason. What is the reason? You refuse to give even the simplest facts of where you were with your son before he went missing. It is day 12.

MELINDA DUCKETT: (INAUDIBLE) with all media. It`s not just there, just all media. Period.

GRACE: Let`s go to Dr. Lillian Glass, psychologist. Weak spots?

GLASS: This doesn`t make any sense to me. And the fact that she`s skirting around the issue and can`t get to the point concerns me a lot. Her reaction is not the typical reaction of a mother who has a missing child, whose child was taken from the bed when she says I don`t cry my eyes out. Most people would be emotional about it and the fact that she`s been skirting the issue through this entire interview concerns me."

Melinda committed suicide the next day.  Grace was criticized by the family for airing the show and subsequently Melinda’s family sued CNN and Nancy Grace for contributing to her suicide.  Grace said it just confirmed her guilt.  The case was settled out of court. 

“She wasn’t one anyone ever would have thought of to do something like this.  She and that baby just loved each other, couldn’t get away from each other.  She wouldn’t hurt a bug,” said Bill Eubank, Duckett’s grandfather. 

Delano Wilson: Amber Alert for missing baby from Indianapolis

UPDATE 8/30/14 - The authorities have decided to cancel the Amber Alert for Delano, because they believe there has been sufficient awareness publicized about the missing baby.  Police believe the search for the baby is a search-and-rescue mission, and they will continue to look even though they have searched every place possible.

The Amber Alert said the baby was seen with a white man and a Hispanic woman in a 2000 blue Ford Taurus.

 Neighbors are critical of the authorities and believe they should continue to search until the baby is found, stating that the search has not continued and there was no one searching anymore.  Regardless, neighbors are voluntarily looking for him, "He is out there.  Dead or alive, he is out there somewhere." 

This is very true and I agree that the search must continue until Delano is found, dead or alive.  I suspect the police do not believe the father's story and feel Delano is dead, but that is when they must continue the search because they need Delano's body to prosecute the person that is responsible for his death.  There are so many missing children out there and so many murderers walking free, because without a body, the police cannot build a case to prosecute or even arrest anyone.  

Police say Delano Wilson was snatched from his father's arms in an alley around noon Wednesday. An Amber Alert was issued Wednesday evening.

The victim says he was robbed and pistol-whipped near the intersection of South Harding and Henry Streets, reports WTHR news.

He says a man and woman took off with the baby in a blue Ford Taurus.

One concerned mother didn't want to appear on camera but says she saw Willie Wilson, Delano's father and the kidnappers' car.

"I saw the dad coming out of the alley after the vehicle left. I didn't hear any yelling, or gunshots or the car wasn't speeding away or nothing," said the woman.

Police have searched the nearby river, but have found nothing.

Ramy Demboski: Amber Alert for missing 3-year-old from Missouri Found

Ramy found with her biological mother in the Westport area of Kansas City, police said.

Read more here: http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/crime/article1311864.html#storylink=cpy


An Amber Alert has been issued for a missing 3-year-old girl from Excelsior Springs, Mo.

Ramy Demboski was at her home 116 Persimmon Drive, when a woman came to the home and said her car had broken down around 3 p.m. on Wednesday.  Ramy's step-mother, Paulina Nave invited her in and gave her some water and let her use the bathroom.

Paulina left Ramy at home with another woman so that she could go and pick up another child from school.  She had heard the woman call someone with the cell phone she had let her borrow and heard her say, it would be about 45 minutes before someone would be able to come fix her car. 

While she was gone, the other woman at the home left to watch Ramy called and said the woman was gone and so was Ramy.

“I don’t know where she is. I know what she was wearing. Right before I left to go pick up the oldest daughter, she said ‘Look Mommy. I’ve got fishy shorts on,’ and I didn’t think. I didn’t think this woman would take her. She had kids! I gave her water. I gave her Gatorade because she has kids and I have kids and it’s hot and she’s gone,” Paulina Nave told WDAF TV news said.

The police are trying to find Ramy's biological mom and they now believe that there may be a connection between the woman and Ramy's mother, as the father and her have been have a custody despite.

The police are looking for the woman who was driving a silver blue Dodge Charger with Nebraska plates.  There may be two small children in the back seat of the car.

Ramy has blonde hair and was wearing a white shirt with a mouse and kite on it as well as pink and yellow flannel shorts, and black flip-flops with pink beads.

Danielle and Sydney Wolferts: Sisters missing while visiting mother




Please scroll down to bottom of page to read the beginning of this story.  Posts run in a descending order.

UPDATE:  8/30/14 - According to the uncle of the two missing sisters, the girls ran away because they were being abused by their father.   The self-proclaimed uncle left a comment on this page under the name TNT Homes Builders and he stating, "I am in communication with their older sister that was present when they ran way because they did NOT want to return to their father. I have a letter from a Dr that interviewed the girls in June that states "(they) would be severely emotionally harmed if they were returned to the physical custody of their father."

The older sister is Brittany that left a statement on her Facebook page a few days ago, that you can read father down on this page, next to the photo of the Mormom Church. 

As I brought up back the, is it possible that Brittany WAS with her younger sisters in San Diego when the photo from the Mormon Church and of Brittany at the Beach was taken?  According to the uncle, Brittany was there when they ran away, but we don't know where is.  

Now we hear that there is possible abuse from the father?

Wolferts vs. Wolferts

UPDATE:  8/28/14 - I have been checking back with this story every day and sometimes several times a day to see if there are any updates.   With all the years I have been doing missing person stories, there is a pattern, especially when the case involves teens.  Usually the parent reports them missing to the police, the police are slow to respond as they assume they are runaways.

The police, based on their experience with teen cases look for foul play right away, and when they see none, consider it a runaway.  Many times they have seen a teen return before the paperwork is done.  Statistics show that 83% return within the month, with most returning within the next 6 months.

I have written a book on How to use Social Media to help you find a Missing Person and I dedicated a lot of writing to missing teens, and trying to explain why this age group that gets such little attention from law enforcement and media.

One of the things that most don't understand is why police seem slow to respond to missing teens. With all the cases they have seen police make a judgement call, right at the beginning whether it is voluntary or involuntary.  If they have decided that your teen is voluntarily missing, you are pretty much on your own to find them, as once the paperwork is done, they do no active searching for the most part and wait until they are picked up sleeping in a park somewhere or return home.  But, one thing they are expected to do and without hesitation is to put their personal information into NCIC.  NCIC is a database that hooks all the police departments, including government law enforcement together.  So, for example, if the sisters are found sleeping on a beach, the police can run their description or name and find out instantaneously they were reported missing. 

The media is slow to run a missing teen story, as they share the same thought as law enforcement that by the time they run the story the teen will be back home and usually they are right.  It is not until at least a week has gone by and a lot of attention from social media that draws their attention, before a twist is created to make the story interesting enough for the public to read.

Regardless of the above, there are two teens that are somewhere in this world and they need to be found.  Why they decided to runaway, assuming it was their decision is not known at this time.   I am willing to bet that the police have already made a judgement on this case, as they have talked to the parents and have not divulged that information.  It is hard to tell at this point, but I am willing to bet they feel as though the sisters have probably been put somewhere, like a relatives or friends house.

But, right now the police are stuck and their hands are tied, as the mother says they have runaway and has not elaborated on her story.  With that, the authorities have nothing else to go on to counterdict her story, so they are left to wait.  Wait until something comes out that proves what actually happened to them, and if they acted on their own free will or were coerced to hide, like a certain balloon boy did several years back.   It is a guess at this point whether the authorities are treating this like just another runaway teen case, or will suddenly find the sisters after some remarkable sleuthing when everyone thought they were out for donuts. 

Previous Post:

A photo from Instagram from Sydney's account posted on Facebook shows that Sydney may have been in San Diego. Looking at this photo I recognized it as the Mormon Church that is alongside Freeway 5 in San Diego County, that is officially called the San Diego California Temple.

It is breathtaking and unexpected when you first spot it as you drive on the freeway, and many people seeing it for the first time, can't help but want to take a photo of it.  At first, no one knew if this was proof that Sydney and Danielle had been in San Diego, but another post of the same church was done by Brittany Ann, which I believe is Sydney and Danielle's sister, per this statement on her Facebook page.  Is this just a coincidence?  Brittany posted on her Facebook page:

"I've had concerned family, friends and community members ask about what has been going on with my missing sisters. I want everyone to know that I am extremely supportive of all of the shared pages of my sisters. I'm overwhelmed by everyone's love and concern, and all of the prayers in behalf of their safety. One thing I would ask in behalf of clarification is that when these pages/links are shared, the following information is altered: it was July 17 that they ran away, rather than missing on July 9. The reason why the 9th is documented with orem city is because that was the first time they ran away for a space of a few hours before returning.
Again, I thank every one for their support and concern. I honestly don't have the words to express my gratitude. I love you all and express thanks again for the many prayers.
Brittany"

 There is also a photo of Brittany on the beach. In the background you can see an island.  I believe this to be Islas Coronado the little uninhabited islands that used to have a bunch of goats on it.  Judging by where she is standing she could be at Imperial Beach in San Diego.  

Was Sydney and Danielle in San Diego?  Is there any friends or family of the family in San Diego?  Did they just pass through and then decided to travel back on their own?

Melissa McGuinn: Baby missing since 1988 from Trenton

Melissa had reddish-blonde hair when she was a baby and it could be that color or even dark brown like her mother's.  

Melissa McGuinn, born Aug. 3, 1987,  was only 7-months-old when she went missing from her home on the 600 block of Lamberton StreetTrenton, NJ on March 6, 1988.

Wanda Reed, who had the mental capacity of a 6-year-old were sharing a home with the McGuinns.  Reed had an infant son and Becky and her would take turns watching each other's baby.  Reed walked out of the house with Melissa and returned later alone.  She told authorities she had given the baby away to throwing her into the river.  Wanda was evaluated as unfit to stand trial.

Becky McGuinn House, Melissa's mother and Anna Canard who has been working on the case believes that Melissa is still alive, but does not know what happened to her.  With attention brought to the case there is a possibility that Melissa might realize that she is the baby that went missing 26-years-ago.

“It's just a matter of time before she recognizes herself or someone else recognizes her or someone else who was afraid to say something back that might come forward and say ‘hey you know what, I know what happened',” Canard said.

Reed said she took Melissa because she got more attention than her son.

There is one person the police are waiting for results of a DNA test to see if she is the missing Melissa.  Three other people have been ruled out. 

Detective Paul Sciortino, Stajanov has been re-interviewing witnesses  in an effort to finally new leads, reports the Daily Mail.
'I absolutely believe that she's still out there,' said Sciortino.

Robert Earl McGuinn, Melissa's father died in 2008.  Becky is still alive and residing in Arkansas.
