First Coast reported, Sergeant Lonnie Mills of Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said the child was taken by a man who had befriended the mother at the store and said he was taking the girl to the store’s McDonald’s outlet for a snack. HUH? Oh dear God, who does this in this day and age? Seriously folks, how in the hell do you allow yourself to be befriended by a total stranger and allow your 8 year old little girl to go off like this? What on earth was this mother thinking?
Charish Lilly Perriwinkle description: 4′ 3″-tall, 60-pound, white girl with hazel eyes and brown hair. She was wearing an orange sleeveless dress, a pink bandanna and purple flip-flops when she vanished from the Walmart off Lem Turner Road in Jacksonville, FL.

Smith has several previous arrests involving lewd behavior with children and has a registered address of 2495 Segovia Avenue.

After the investigation revealed that the girl had been abducted, an Amber Alert was activated, Hartley said. He identified Smith, “a man with a very extensive criminal history” that included a kidnapping conviction, as a suspect.
Williams said the girl’s mother first met Smith on Friday night at a local Dollar General store, where he offered to take the family to Walmart to buy them some clothes.
“After being inside the store for a couple hours, the man then offered to buy some hamburgers,” Williams told reporters. “As he walked to the front of the store, he took our 8-year-old victim with him. They walked to the front of the Walmart toward the McDonald’s. They did not stop at the McDonald’s. They walked outside, got in his van and left the location.”

Florida Authorities Asking Recreational Boaters to Be on the Look Out for Missing/Kidnapped Brothers Chase & Cole Hakken … Seraching for Joshua Michael Hakken’s Newly Purchased Boat “Salty” and a Paw Print in White on both Sides of Hull
Four year old Cole Hakken and his brother two year old Chase Hakken have been missing since Wednesday, April 3, 2013 when they were forcible removed from their grandmothers home and kidnapped by their bio father Joshua Michael Hakken. The grandmother had been given custody one day prior to the abduction after Joshua and Sharyn Hakken had lost their parental right.
Florida authorities are asking recreational boaters to be on the look out for missing Cole and Chase Hakken and for a sailboat that the father Joshua Hakken recently bought. According to accounts, it is a 25 foot sailboat (picture here) with a blue hull with the word “Salty” and a paw print in white on both sides. The Coast Guard is also aiding in the search for the missing brothers and has been broadcasting an Amber Alert.
Florida authorities are asking recreational boaters to keep an eye out for a boat owned by Joshua Michael Hakken that could hold two kidnapped boys.
The message appears to be getting the attention of boaters along the Florida coast.
“I got kids and family myself, so we’ll be definitely looking for them,” Bryan Hinland told WTSP-TV.
Pedro Rodriguez said he was also keeping an eye out. “Every once in a while I looked out to see if I saw (the sailboat) or not,” he said.
Investigators with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office say they believe Hakken shuttled his wife, Sharyn, and the boys onto the 25-foot sailboat around 10 a.m. Wednesday. Investigators are unsure whether Sharyn Hakken is part of the kidnapping plot or a victim.
Father purchased a sailboat: (more details)
On Friday, authorities said they’ve obtained information that Joshua Hakken recently purchased a sailboat.
At least one witness said the 25-foot boat was spotted going underneath the John’s Pass Bridge last week.
The sheriff’s office says Hakken has sailed before.
“I don’t want to say extensive, but we do know he has some sailing training and some sailing experience, so he is capable of operating that boat,” said McKinnon.
The boat is described as a 1972 Morgan 25M (25 foot) sailboat, blue bimini top, white mainsail, boat deck and cabin are white, hull is blue with “Salty” and a paw print in white on both sides with a white stripe near water line, bearing Flo.
It is uncertain at this point whether 35 year old Joshua Michael Hakken, 34 year old Sharyn Hakken and the two brothers, Chase & Cole Hakken, are still aboard the sailboat or whether they might be back on land. An Amber Alert for the boys has been issued in Florida, Tennessee, Louisiana and other states.

The 2006 GMC pickup truck was located abandoned in the John’s Pass Parking Garage located at 12901 Gulf Blvd.
HCSO detectives and crime scene technicians are processing the vehicle.
Pinellas County deputies initially responded after someone reported seeing a vehicle that matched a description on Amber Alerts issued across the Southeast. Four states issued the alerts including Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee.
Chase and Cole Hakken were still wearing their pajamas when deputies say their own parents took them by force from a Lake Magdalene home.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has issued a statewide AMBER Alert for two Florida brothers who may be in eastern Tennessee with their non-custodial parents.
Cole Hakken, 4, and Chase Hakken, 2, were kidnapped from their grandmother’s home in Tampa on April 3. The grandmother has custody of the brothers.
The vehicle may have been spotted in the area of Highway 30 and Highway 411 in Etowah, Tennessee Wednesday around 8 p.m.
UPDATE III: AMBER alert family seen headed onto Gulf of Mexico.
Hillsborough deputies say the father who abducted his two non-custodial children in Tampa was last seen taking his family into the Gulf of Mexico aboard a sailboat.
The information comes shortly after Joshua Hakken’s pickup truck was discovered in a Madeira Beach parking garage. Investigators believe Hakken took his 4-year-old Cole and 2-year-old Chase onto a 25-foot sailboat, hours after abducting them from their grandmother’s home early on Wednesday morning.
The Sheriff’s Office says it is not clear what direction the boat went after leaving the Johns Pass area, nor do they know if the boat was still on the water during Thursday’s strong storms.

Investigators say Sidney Randall was last seen in her room Saturday night. Sidney Nicole Randall was last seen wearing a brown Aeropostale jacket. She is 5 ft. 4 in. tall, 85 pounds, green eyes, with long brown hair just below her shoulder. Sidney Nicole Randall was believed to have been with her stepfather, 38-year old John Cornell. Her mother woke up around 3:30 a.m. and could not find Sidney nor her husband. John Cornell returned home around 5:30 in the morning and his wife called 911 when she did not see Sidney. She has not been seen since and has literally disappeared.
Wednesday an army of investigators, rescue squads and search dog teams were back in the area of Lawrence County where John Cornell’s body was found.
Walnut Ridge Police Chief Richy Thatcher says no stone will be left unturned, ”We’re just looking for any kind of clues, leads, anything that we can come up with.”
Chief Thatcher says the search for Sidney has been extensive and exhausting, but no one is ready to give up, ”We’re just hoping that she’s safe, where ever she’s at. Whether he let her out somewhere and she’s hiding or something: just her safety is our concern.”
Authorities are asking the public to check their property for anything suspicious.
John Cornell, the step father who was wanted for questioning in the case of missing 14 year old girl Sidney Randall, was found dead in the Walnut Ridge area this afternoon of a possible self inflicted gun shot wound. Cornell was found in his 2000 red ford ranger.
The search for Sidney Nicole Randell enters day 7 Saturday morning with search crews meeting the public at the Walnut Ridge Fire Department at 9a. A dive crew is currently searching the Big Running Water Creek. Search crews on land are combing many back roads and county roads around the creek. “We back tracked, every little lead that we possibly could find,” Lawrence County Sheriff Jody Dotson said. Arkansas State Police seized the computers John Cornell, Sidney’s step-dad and suspect in her disappearance, recently bought with tax refund money looking for any kind of evidence. Investigators continue to seek the public’s help in the search for Randall. Police have been asking residents to search their properties for anything out of the ordinary, and then call into police so they can mark the area searched on their search map. Even if you don’t find anything on your property, Sheriff Dotson said they still would like for you to call the Dispatch Center with that information.
“She was a sweet, caring person, but she was keeping something,” her brother Ben Randall said. “She never did tell anybody but she was keeping something from everybody.” Sidney Randall’s father and his live-in partner said they suspected the teenager’s stepfather John Cornell had been molesting her. “She told one of her friends John slugged her in the mouth,” Sidney’s father Victor Randall said. “She was scared of him.” Victor says Cornell seemed to make sure Sidney was with him when he left the home. “She said she was going to tell,” he said. Lawrence County Sheriff Jody Dotson said that allegations have been made that Cornell might have been abusing Sidney, but that they cannot prove it.
Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Walnut Ridge Police Department at (870) 886-2525.
