FBI Joins the Search for Missing 9 Year Old Aliahna Lemmon in Indiana (UPDATE: Police Call news conference “very important”)
Nine year old Aliahna Marie Maroney Lemmon has been missing since Friday morning, December 23, 2011 at the Northway trailer park around Clinton Street and Diebold Road. No one has seen or heard from her since. The fact that there have been no sightings or clues to the whereabouts of Missing 9 Year Old Aliahna Lemmon is not a good sign for any happy outcome.
The FBI has now joined the search for the missing Indiana girl. It has been said that missing Aliahna Lemmon has physical and emotional problems. Also and even more disturbing the mobile home park where she was staying is known as a haven for registered sex offenders. What better place for a 9 year old little girl to stay. How does anybody allow their children to live around so many sex offenders, many considered violent sex offenders. Just curious, so why is the FBI involved?
About a half-dozen people in black windbreakers, several of whom identified themselves as FBI agents, were at the mobile home park Monday where Aliahna Lemmon went missing from a family friend’s home on Friday. Some with search dogs were seen at a nearby storage facility.
Monday’s renewed search came a day after local police significantly rolled back a coordinated effort by several law enforcement agencies, said Cpl. Jeremy Tinkel, a department spokesman. He said the same size search could not be sustained on Sunday because of the Christmas holiday.
Note: That the FBI does involve themselves in cases if children are missing and possibly kidnapped, with no known interstate transportation. The FBI will initiate a kidnapping investigation involving a missing child “of tender years, 12 years old or younger. This would lead us to believe that authorities are not buying the “sleep walking” stories.
If a child is missing and possibly kidnapped, but no interstate transportation is known, will the FBI begin an investigation?
Yes. The FBI will initiate a kidnapping investigation involving a missing child “of tender years,” even though there is no known interstate aspect. “Tender years” is generally defined as a child 12 years or younger. The FBI will monitor other kidnapping situations when there is no evidence of interstate travel, and it offers assistance from various entities including the FBI Laboratory.
The questions in this case are many:
- How could any mother allow her children to be exposed to so many convicted sex offenders?
- Who allows their children to stay with a man ( Mike Plumadore ), living among sex offenders, because they are too sick?
- Really, the mothers own father was a convicted of crimes who lived with Plumadore prior to his death?
- How does a mother not see the children since Tuesday, even though we are told that Aliahna had many physical and emotional issues?
- Why would the 6 year old sisters have told Plumadore that Aliahna was with their mom, if she was not … this according to Plumadore?
- Why would Plumadore have left the children alone at all? If he had gone for a cigar at 6AM, a bit early for a Tiparillo isn’t it dude? So he leaves them alone, knowing the 9 year old has issues?
- Also, why was the step dad not taking care of the children when the mom was sick? Why ask a friend? This kind of stinks of the stereotypical “step-dad” stories.
According to the news account in the VIDEO below, Mike Plumadore, the man who was watching Aliahna, claims that he was going into having a polygraph taken by police. Listening to individuals accounts of the story, I just find it hard to believe it all occurred that way. And still wondering why the step-dad was not taking care of the girls, why a guy friend?

The family friend who was allegedly caring for Aliahna at the time of her disappearance spoke briefly to Indiana’s NewsCenter Monday morning. He reported going in to take a polygraph test, and said he too is eager to find Aliahna.
From CNN’s Nancy Grace:
Story told Grace that search dogs picked up Aliahna’s scent going from Plumadore’s home to a bus stop but her trail then vanished. The bus stop is on the side of a busy road and Story speculated that someone may have abducted her from there.
