UPDATE I: Police Searching for Missing 7-Year-Old Girl.
Community members have gathered at the Topper’s Pizza restaurant, which is serving as a headquarters for the search. A large pizza delivery map is being used to help plot out the search areas. Searchers are being sent out in small groups to comb the neighborhood and wooded areas.
“At this point the map is actually a delivery map for Topper’s, so it’s got the quadrants, so it’s helping us quite a bit being able to divide the groups up between 4 and 6 people,” said organizer and family friend Melissa Toch.
About 80 to 100 community members have joined the search effort, and more are expected to join during the daylight. People are handing out fliers with Lilleona’s photo and information on the little girl.
Lilleona’s stepmother says she is thankful for the community’s outpouring of support. Tina Badtke says they are staying in contact with police during the search.
“We are in contact with the police, and we let them know what’s going on, if we find anything suspicious, anything like that,” said Tina Badtke.

This is a bit bizarre. The 7 year old spent the night at a classmate’s house but no adult in that home called this girl’s parents to tell them as such?
The 7-year-old girl who went missing Monday afternoon was found when she showed up for school Tuesday morning.
Lilleona Rose Badtke was found safe and sound at Longfellow Elementary School after apparently having spent the night at a classmate’s home, according to information released by the Sheboygan Police Department.
SICK, JUST SICK … BUT THAT IS WHAT TERRORISM IS.
Rhode Island police are stating that they have received a chilling letter with the threat to behead elementary school students in Warwick, Cranston and Johnston. The threat is being taken seriously by police. Many parents are taking the letter serious as well, as they have taken their children out of school and had them stay home. Johnston police received the anonymous threat by mail on Tuesday.
Warwick’s police chief says a threat to elementary school students in three communities mentioned beheading.
Col. Steven McCartney tells WPRO-AM that the threat specified that “beheading is planned.” He called the nature of the threat targeting children in Warwick, Cranston and Johnston chilling.
“There was a specific mention of elementary schools in this letter, the other thing which was the specific type of threat, which was beheading, is planned,” McCartney told WPRO.
Johnston police received the anonymous threat by mail on Tuesday. Police say officers will be at every school in Johnston, Cranston and Warwick through Friday.
Also Wednesday, state Rep. Deborah Fellela, who represents Johnston, said she plans to introduce a bill that would make it a felony to threaten students in Rhode Island with physical harm. The legislation provides for a sentence of up to 20 years in prison and $100,000 in fines. A judge also could order that restitution be paid to any municipality that responds to a threat.
EXIT THOUGHTS … What is the preferred weapon of choice by Islamist terrorist when beheading innocents? A knife of course. You know the old saying, “don’t bring a knife to a gun fight”. These terror threats against children are just another wake up call to make sure that there is an individual on the premises who is armed and ready to protect.
Greg Allen’s Pursuit of his 4 Year Old Missing Daughter Sabrina Allen is Over After 12 Years … Kidnapped to Mexico by Mother, Dara Marie Llorens
After twelve long years, a fathers fight is finally over … He never gave up hope.
A father’s pursuit to get her missing daughter back is finally over. After 12 years, Greg Allen has been told that his daughter Sabrina Allen has been found. However, any reunion with her father is on hold as over the years her mother manipulated her by telling her he, Greg Allen, was a bad guy, a wife beater, and child molester. In April 2002, a then 4 year old Sabrina Allen was visiting with her non-custodial mother, Dara Marie Llorens, as part of a court agreement, when the mother abducted her daughter and took her to Mexico. The search is now over, Sabrina Allen has been found. Dara Marie Llorens is in custody and has been shared with aggravated kidnapping and custodial interference. She is being held on $300,000 bond.
On that day, Llorens allegedly violated a court-ordered child custody agreement and disappeared with her daughter during a scheduled weekend visit, the FBI said in its wanted bulletin for Llorens.
Llorens was supposed to return the daughter to her father two days later. He was the primary guardian, the FBI said.
Sabrina Allen, age 4 (left) – current (right)
Sabrina Allen has been missing since she was allegedly abducted by her non-custodial mother in 2002. \Sabrina and her mother, Dara Llorens, were found in Mexico and brought back to the United States Tuesday. Llorens is currently being held on an aggravated kidnapping charge in the Travis County Jail in lieu of $300,000 bond. Sabrina was taken to an undisclosed location for medical evaluation, CNN reports.
Sabrina, who was last seen by her father when she was 4, is now 17. She and her mother were found Sept. 30 in a small town Southeast of Mexico City by a joint task force that included the FBI,US Marshals Service and Mexican federal agents.
The break in the case came in the form of a confidential tip received four weeks ago, reports CBS News correspondent Elaine Quijano. Federal agents, working with their Mexican counterparts, hatched a daring rescue plan that finally paid off on Tuesday.
Gregory Allen said there were three simple things he was looking forward to.
“Love and happiness. And family,” he said.
Sabrina, now 17, is dealing with the trauma and re-adjusting to life back in the U.S. with the help of a therapist.
When she’s willing to see her dad again, Allen said he knows exactly what he’ll say.
“I’m going to ask her if I could give her a hug.”
Allen said there’s no timetable for his reunion with Sabrina, that he will wait until she is ready.
Greg Allen’s obsession with finding his missing daughter began more than a decade ago, when the mother finally made good on a threat and fled with the daughter from Texas to Mexico, according to him and authorities.
Sabrina Allen was a month away from turning age 5, and the visit with her non-custodial mother, Dara Marie Llorens, was supposed to last only a weekend in April 2002, as part of a court agreement.
But that weekend visitation in Austin lasted 12 years and finally ended Tuesday, when Mexican and U.S. authorities said they found the girl and her mother living in seclusion in a small apartment in a town between Mexico City and Puebla. The mother will face charges in Travis County, Texas, said Dan Powers, an FBI assistant special agent in charge in San Antonio, Texas.
So much time has passed that Allen’s daughter is all but grown, now 17 years old. Moreover, his daughter has been told over the years that her father was “a bad guy” and “a wife beater” — all false accusations, Allen declared.
Parents are pulling their children from Dallas, TX schools in wake of Ebola … Wouldn’t you?
In the wake of the first diagnosed case of Ebola in the United States and their children’s possible contact with individuals who may have come in contact with the infected patient, some parents are being cautious and pulling their children from schools.
Some Dallas parents pulled their children out of school Wednesday after health officials said five area children had come into contact with an Ebola patient over the weekend.
The five children were kept at home Wednesday, but that did not stop families from picking up their kids out of fears they might be vulnerable to illness, according to local news reports.
Parents at Sam Tasby Middle School and LL Hotchkiss Elementary were seen picking up their children following Wednesday’s press conference.
Dallas health officials had insisted that no other children were at risk of developing Ebola and urged families to keep their kids in school.
The Ebola patient was identified in news reports as Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian man who had shared a residence with an Ebola-stricken woman prior to his travel to the United States.

Minnesota Vikings’ Adrian Peterson Indictment in Child Injury Case … Warrant Issued for His Arrest (Update: Peterson Booked on Child Abuse Charge, Posts Bond)
AND ANOTHER BLACK EYE FOR THE NFL …
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has been indicted in Montgomery County, Texas for reckless or negligent injury to a child. The indictment is in regards to Peterson hitting his 4 year old son this past summer with a branch, referred to as a switch, as a form of punishment. Peterson states that this is how he was punished as a child. A grand jury seated earlier this summer decided not to charge Peterson with a crime. However, that was not the case with the new one. According to accounts, the incident resulted in multiple injuries to the child. The boy lives with his mother in Minnesota but was on a visit to Texas several months ago when Peterson disciplined him with the switch. Peterson was taken into custody at 1 a.m. Saturday in Montgomery County, Texas, and was released on $15,000 bond, according to NFL.com. If convicted, Adrian Peterson could face two years in prison.
Adrian Peterson has been deactivated by the Vikings and will not play this Sunday against the New England Patriots.
According to law-enforcement sources, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson beat his 4-year-old son with a tree branch as a form of punishment this summer, an incident that allegedly resulted in multiple injuries to the child. According to reports, Peterson has been indicted in Montgomery County, Texas for injury to a child.
The “whooping” – as Peterson put it when interviewed by police – occurred in Spring, Texas, in May. Peterson’s son had pushed another one of Peterson’s children off of a motorbike video game. As punishment, Peterson grabbed a tree branch – which he consistently referred to as a “switch” – removed the leaves and struck the child repeatedly.
The beating allegedly resulted in numerous injuries to the child, including cuts and bruises to the child’s back, buttocks, ankles, legs and scrotum, along with defensive wounds to the child’s hands. Peterson then texted the boy’s mother, saying that one wound in particular would make her “mad at me about his leg. I got kinda good wit the tail end of the switch.”
Adrian Peterson’s lawyer, Rusty Hardin later released the following statement:
Adrian Peterson has been informed that he was indicted by a grand jury in Montgomery County, Texas for Injury to a Child. The charged conduct involves using a switch to spank his son. This indictment follows Adrian’s full cooperation with authorities who have been looking into this matter. Adrian is a loving father who used his judgment as a parent to discipline his son. He used the same kind of discipline with his child that he experienced as a child growing up in east Texas. Adrian has never hidden from what happened. He has cooperated fully with authorities and voluntarily testified before the grand jury for several hours. Adrian will address the charges with the same respect and responsiveness he has brought to this inquiry from its beginning. It is important to remember that Adrian never intended to harm his son and deeply regrets the unintentional injury.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office released the following statement on Friday evening:
On Thursday, September 11, 2014, a Montgomery County Grand Jury, “true billed”, Adrian Lewis Peterson on a charge of injury to a child. On today’s date at 2:47 PM, a warrant was issued and entered for the arrest of Adrian Peterson for that charge.
Since the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office has referred the case to the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office, and the investigation has led to a, “true bill”, on a criminal offense, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office will not discuss details in reference to the case or investigation.
At the time of this release, Adrian Peterson is not in custody at the Montgomery County Jail and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office does not have any details in the arrest of Adrian Peterson.
Peterson’s team, the Vikings, released the following statement on Friday evening:
The Vikings are in the process of gathering information regarding the legal situation involving Adrian Peterson. At this time, we will defer further questions to Adrian’s attorney Rusty Hardin.
One of the darkest weeks in NFL history took another disturbing twist Friday when a warrant was issued in Texas for the arrest of Adrian Peterson, the face of the Vikings, over his treatment of one of his children.
Peterson faces an indictment accusing him of reckless or negligent injury to a child stemming from Peterson’s decision earlier this year to discipline his 4-year-old son by beating him with a ‘‘switch.’’
The Vikings responded by quickly deactivating Peterson for Sunday’s home opener against New England at TCF Bank Stadium. Peterson will surrender to Houston police, his attorney said.
Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson turned himself in to Montgomery County, Texas, authorities early Saturday morning.
He was booked into the Montgomery County jail at 1:06 a.m. CT and released at 1:35 a.m. CT after posting the $15,000 bond.
74 year old Democrat Representative Jim Clyburn from South Carolina has come up with a sure fire way to get out the Democrat vote in 2014 … SEXTING!!! I am almost certain Bill Clinton might agree.
From the The Daily Caller comes the third-ranking House Democrat’s appearance on C-SPAN, where REP. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) accidentally misspoke and used the word “sexting” instead of “texting”. Oops. Sorry Wonkette, but this is funny. Like you have never pointed and laughed at anyone before. Nothing like some good, clean, innocent humor. Nothing mean intended here, obviously Rep. Clyburn not a big texter. However, with the problems facing the Democrats in 2014 thanks to Obama’s failures, sexting may be the only way to get out the vote.
“Use the tools that we have,” he said, according the Daily Caller’s clip of the appearance. “We’ve got great tools to communicate about everything else. We can text. What do we call it? Sexting. Let’s do some voting, organizing over the internet. We’ve got the tools. Let’s use them for a new massive movement that will make sure that we can have in November 2014 the kind of turnout at the polls that we had in 2012 in November.”

Parents Turn Their 13 Year Old Daughter into Sheriff’s Office after Finding Nude Pics on Cell Phone & Tablet in Dindiddie County, VA
TOUGH LOVE … WHEN WILL TEENS GET A CLUE ABOUT SEXTING?
Dindiddie County, VA parents have turned their 13 year old daughter into Sheriff’s deputies after they found nude pictures on her cell phone and tablet. The teens parents were shocked to discover that their daughter was sending and receiving nude pics. Exactly what part about creating and disseminating child porn don’t these teens quite understand? Even though it is possible their daughter could face criminal charges, they did this in order to protect her. The mother, whose name remains anonymous to protect the identity of the 13 year old, said that she is particularly concerned about whether the people she shared photos with were adults. The soon to be 8th grader may not necessarily face charges and go through the court system, but instead go through a program called diversion in the juvenile justice system. However, any older teens involved could most certainly be facing felony charges depending on their ages.
The parents discovered their 13-year-old daughter, who is about to enter the eighth-grade, had been sending and receiving naked pictures of other teens using her tablet.
And the deeper they dug, the worse it got. In fact, things got so bad they called in the sheriff’s department to investigate.
“What scares me is, this is much bigger than we realize. How many others are doing this and you don’t realize it,” asked the Dinwiddie County mother of two.
FOX 4 sister station CBS 6 News is not revealing her name to protect her family’s identity.
The parents became aware of what their 13-year-old was doing, when their other child heard voices in her bedroom around 4 a.m.
The parents then confiscated the electronics.
“Looking through the phone and the tablet we did find sexual pictures, conversations that were very inappropriate for her age,” she said.
While none of the nude photo’s showed their daughter with anyone else, there were pictures being sent back and forth with other boys.
“Everybody wanted to be her friend, because according to these people, she was cool now,” she said.
