Social media searching for missing man after beating of child

This child is in the hospital and is being protected by child protective services and her father  Wanted for questioning and allegedly beating this child is Jimmy Merle Vanater, 33, of Mesa, Arizona.

UPDATE:  12/14/14 –  According to the police in a probable cause statement, the arresting officer said he saw the child and her face was “bruised and cut with fingerprint markings.” He went on to describe additional bruising all over her body, “abdominal trauma that may require surgery,” and a fractured wrist, reported KPHO news.

The police asked the child how she was hurt and she said her mother, Rae Cherl Lynn, according to KPHO.

Chidesester, 26.  Police have since arrested her.  The little girl’s brother said that his mom and boyfriend hit him with a ruler and a belt and his sister, too.

So, Lorelei did not mention that the mother was involved with this case, but did say the mother is standing by the boyfriend.

According to Lorelei Slomba, who is the paternal grandmother of this little girl, “she is only 2 and; this jimmy done what you see and; that is not all of her sounds he beat her on every part of her body she is in the hospital.”  But I can find nothing that supports that Jimmy was ever arrested for this and according to the comments below he never was.

  1. “If you see him, please take a photo and call 911”. Take a photo? Seeing as how this man is allegedly violent that is a completely insane thing to ask visitors of this website to do. I request that you take that down from this site immediately.

  2. Oh god I hope the mom never gets this child back and that she can never have another. She should also be glad that that isn't my grandchild. I would go to jail the rest of my days if I saw my child or grandchild looking like this poor little girl. I just wish people would get involved more. So many innocent children suffer abuse and people turn there backs to it.

  3. Horrific photos of a badly beaten child have surfaced on Facebook on Sunday by the paternal grandmother of the child, Lorelei Slomba. Slomba stating it was the boyfriend of the mother that caused the injuries and has named him and has asked social media to help find him as he is missing.

    There has been no reports the police are searching for the boyfriend, but social media is reporting him as a wanted man in connection with the beating of the little girl. AZ Family News reported that the mother, Rae Cherl Lynn Chidesester, 26, was responsible for the beating and injuries to the child and she was arrested and charged with felony child abuse. Her mugshot on a website shows that she was arrested on December 10.

    It was also reported the 3-year-old brother of the little girl said that his mother and boyfriend beat him with a ruler and a belt and hit his sister with a belt, too. This information probably will be followed up on by the police even though according to Slomba, Chidesester is protecting her boyfriend and has not named his as being part of the incident.

    In a probable cause statement the police officer stated that the child was “bruised and cut with fingerprint markings, abdominal trauma that may require surgery, and a fractured wrist.”

    Chidesester told police that she slapped the child leaving a hand print and “banged her head into a wall approximately six or seven times and kick her in her buttocks,” reported WAFB news.

    The toddler was taken to the hospital and is recovering from her injuries. Slomba posted on Facebook that her son is by her side. The hospital also did a toxicology screen and a test came back positive for THC. The child along with her brother are now in child protective services custody.

  5. Thank you Lisa Stalcup for pointing out the truth of what was actually reported. There are many biased versions posted via social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and the list goes on. Nearly all focus the blame on the boyfriend. People seem to have ran with the story and didn't do the research. Jimmy went to the police on his own. There were no reports of the police looking for him. There was no warrant as had been claimed. There were no other charges of child abuse in his past as several people claimed. I have read thousands of the comments that people posted regarding this alleged accusation. Very few were kind, thoughtful or spiritual by any means. People threatening to kill him, torture him, and calling him a child molester, etc. It's disgusting that so many people could be so cold-hearted and cruel themselves by posting hateful remarks about another human being. Is this what our world is made of ? It's sad to think that people are so easily persuaded by what they see/read on social media sites. Thank you Lisa Stalcup for pointing out the difference between what was truthfully reported and what was fabricated. * For everyone who posted negative remarks about him…Did anyone think for one minute that this man means something to someone ? Did anyone think his kids might wonder why they're seeing their dad's picture and all those hateful comments about posted on the internet ? Jimmy is somebody's son. He is somebody's brother. He is the father of several sons and a daughter. He saved someone's life once. He's a somebody that matters to someone.
