local police will hold a news conference @ 10:45am.
Doesn’t look like an abduction to me. Just saying.
Brittany is twelve Easley is 32. He does not have legal custody of this minor, nor the consent of her parents to take her anywhere. She is not in school which he is responsible for (truancy, which I think you’re up to right now), and we haven’t even opened the can of worms if she’s had sexual contact with him.
Legally, that is abduction even had she pleaded to be taken away. He stepped outside not only legal boundaries, but ethical/moral boundaries in his poor choices.
Interesting article. Discusses Tina’s last days of postings on facebook.
Tina’s Facebook wall is full of comments from devastated friends, but it’s her final posts that have Ennemoser wondering if Tina knew something was going to happen to her.
On December 2 at 9:30 p.m., Tina wrote “If I should die before I wake, God Bless my friends. May I be remembered for my good heart and hopeless romantic ways.”
Tina’s last status update was on December 3 about 1:30 p.m. She wrote, “God, please protect us from the evils of this world.”
Do you really expect it to look like an abduction? He probably threatened to kill others if she tried to get help. Think Elizabeth Smart. And it doesn’t matter if she wanted to go with him or not, she is a child and was kidnapped. What exactly does an abducted person look like, I am curious?
Mid-afternoon an amber alert was issued for Brittany in Alabama. They think the two of them were headed this way for some reason. My cable TV went to a black screen with that noise like the emergency broadcasting system, followed by a text crawl detailing the alert. Kinda freaked me out. I hope they find her before it is too late.
Amber alert in Florida for Brittay Mae Smith.
ROANOKE, Vir. — An Amber Alert issued in Virginia has been extended to several other states, including Florida.
Women at one time protected children, that is in the past. Women’s Liberation have miss led women, to believe, anything they want is OK.
Sorry ladies that I voiced my opinion, but it won’t happen again. You sleuthers are much better at this forum than a novice like me. Points well taken.
Morning news today said someone in Florence, Alabama reported that they thought they had seen Jeffery Easley without Brittany.

Does the plot thicken?
In the search warrant filed in Roanoke Circuit Court, investigators say that Jeff Easley sold his red Chevy SUV to Adam McElvy, of Roanoke, in the evening hours of December 3- the same night police believe Tina Smith was killed.
A criminal complaint filed against Easley by the FBI claims a man picked up Easley and Brittany, after Easley sold his red Chevy SUV on the night of December 3rd.
Police say this was after surveillance video captured Easley and Brittany at the Salem Wal-Mart at 8:30 p.m. on December 3rd, and after a security camera taped similar video of Easley and Brittany leaving a nearby Apple Market convenience store about an hour later
