MISSING Aliahna Lemmon: Police Still Searching for Missing 9 Year Old Aliahna Marie Maroney Lemmon in Fort Wayne, IN …Numerous Registered Sex Offenders Live Near Girl’s Home
Aliahna Marie Maroney Lemmon still missing …
Fort Wayne, Indiana police continue to search for missing 9 year old Aliahna Marie Maroney Lemmon. She was last seen December 23, 2011 in the Northway trailer park around Clinton Street and Diebold Road. Elizabeth Sepponen, family member stated Aliahna Marie Maroney Lemmon is partially blind and deaf and suffers from mood and conduct disorders and suspects she ran away. Sorry, I do not buy it. The lack of looking out for the welfare of this little 9 year old girl is pathetic. Also, the fact that there are so many registered sex offenders in this trailer park is beyond disgusting. Runaway? How far could a 9 year old girl have run to in the short amount of time she was so-called missing? Of course the fact that there are so many sex offenders in the area like cockroaches should be a big concern.
Aliahna’s grandpa died earlier this month. Sepponen says the family hasn’t been coping very well and her cousin, Tara, also Aliahna’s mother, has been very ill. Sepponene says Aliahna and her two younger sisters have been in the care of a neighbor for the past couple weeks while Tara recovers. Police say Aliahna was last reported sleeping in a chair at the neighbor’s house before she went missing. Sepponen said when Tara called to check up on her daughters, the neighbor realized Aliahna was missing.
“The babysitter thought that she had gone home to Tara. So nobody realized, because of the miscommunication, that she had actually been missing for a few hours,” Sepponen said. “Tara’s pretty freaked out.”
Police interviewed neighbors and family members all weekend. Aliahna lives in a trailer home with her mother and step-father in a neighborhood where 15 registered sex offenders also live. However, Sheriff Fries says they’ve already gone to each offender’s house and interviewed them. He says none of them are suspects.
“We’re not going to rule out anything as far as foul play. Maybe she’s just at a friend’s house,” said Ken Fries, Allen County Sheriff. “We’re hoping somebody sees this and says, ‘Oh Aliahna’s at our house, come get her.’”
The article above states that 15 registered sex offenders live in the area; however, the Allen County Sheriff’s Dept states that there are 22 child predator scumbags. Many of them have been labeled violent sexual predators.
I feel much better that the police have gone to each of the registered sex offenders homes and interviewed them. Like that makes a difference. Because a convicted child predator would never lie to the police and say they did not kidnap and 9 year old girl and do the unthinkable. GOOD GRIEF!
BTW, what parent allows a 9 year old girl to have a FaceBook page when the TOS states that the age must be 13?
Also, if a 9 year old child suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Activity Disorder and Oppositional Defiant with Conduct Disorder, how do you not keep better watch on the child? Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, HUH? Um, from what? Sorry, she did not run away, I find that hard to believe.
