#FindSamantha: 13 Year Old Samantha Dodson Missing Since 12/3/13 in Oregon City, OR (Endangered Runaway … Believed to be with 40 Year Old Kelsey McCune)(Update: Samantha Dodson Found Safe, McCune Arrested Charged with Rape & Sodomy)
13 year old Samantha Dodson has been missing since December 3, 2013 in Oregon City, Oregon. Samantha Dodson was last seen Tuesday night and may be traveling with a 40-year-old transient man, Kelsey McCune. Samantha’s parents noticed she was missing Wednesday morning, when they went to wake her up to go to school. Authorities consider Samantha an endangered runaway. Two two might be camping. Because what else would a transient be doing who has no known address? McCune has no known address, but he is known to make money doing freelance computer work and he also may be carrying large duffel bags and backpacks with camping gear.

Police called the teen an “endangered runaway” and said she may be in the company of Kelsey McCune, 40, a family friend who authorities said has no permanent address.
It was unclear if the teen left home willingly; however police said she does not have a history of running away.
Dodson, who recently dyed her hair red, was described by police as 5-foot-4 and 125 pounds with brown eyes and a slim build.
Police said McCune is 6 feet tall and 170 pounds with a glass eye and salt-and-pepper hair.
According to FOX 12-OR, 40 year old Kelsey McCune is a long time friend of the family … of course he is. Because there is nothing more special than parents not realizing that a 40 year old, so-called friend of the family, is taking just a little too much interest in your 13 year old daughter!
The Dodson family says McCune is a family friend.
“Kelsey is a family friend of my parents. I met him a couple times in passing, but they’ve known him for years, and I know he was recently down on his luck,” said Sarah Dodson.
Samantha’s family now believes the teen and McCune had been communicating without anyone knowing. When they tried to confront McCune about it Wednesday, they say he wouldn’t return their calls, and won’t answer his messages.
“It’s my understanding that Kelsey doesn’t have a permanent residence, and we think they could be looking for a place to camp because there’s not a place to take her,” said Sarah Dodson.
The search for Samantha stretched to the Newell Creek area of Oregon City on Thursday, where a SWAT team scoured the terrain in the area.
Clackamas County deputies say they consider Samantha an endangered runaway mainly because of the age difference between her and McCune. They are also concerned about Samantha’s welfare because of the record-cold temperatures expected this week.

Samantha Dodson, a missing 13-year-old Oregon City girl, was found in good condition in a wooded area north of an Oregon mobile home park Saturday evening, deputies said.
Deputies and the SWAT team resumed the search for Dodson around 4:30 p.m. after getting what they called a “credible” tip from a witness Saturday who saw her and 40-year-old Kelsey McCune near South Maple Lane Road and South Country Village Drive, said Sgt. Nate Thompson with the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office.
McCune was also found in good condition Saturday, Thompson said. He was arrested and charged with kidnapping, sexual abuse, and rape. He was booked overnight in the Clackamas County Jail.
A vile one-eyed drifter busted by Oregon police for allegedly kidnapping and raping a teenage girl that went missing last week appeared in court Monday.
Kelsey (Patrick) McCune made his first court appearance in Oregon City while facing charges of first-degree kidnapping, custodial interference, sodomy, second-degree sexual abuse and rape.
Amber Alert Issued for 14 Year Old Elizabeth Romero Missing Since 12/4/13 in Kennewick, WA … Arrest Warrent Issued for 19 Year Old Edwardo Fabien Flores Rosalas
An AMBER ALERT has been issued for 14 year old Elizabeth Romero, who has been missing since Wednesday, December 4, 2013 in Kennewick, Washington. She is described as Hispanic, 5-foot-3 and weighs 130 pounds. Elizabeth Romero was last seen getting into her 19 year old boyfriend’s green Ford Escape around 11:15 a.m. on Wednesday at Phoenix High School in Kennewick. Edwardo Fabien Flores Rosales is wanted for kidnapping and a warrant is expected to be issued for his arrest. Authorities believe that Edwardo Fabien Flores Rosales might be trying to take Elizabeth Romero to Mexico.
Elizabeth was reported missing by her mother around 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Lattin said. A nationwide alert was issued around 1:30 p.m. Thursday.
A video released Thursday night shows Elizabeth walking across a parking lot at the high school and getting into a green sports utility vehicle. She is wearing a white top and dark pants, and is carrying a backpack and pink purse. She is 5-foot-3 and weighs 130 pounds.
Edwardo Fabien Flores Rosalas is 5-foot-9 and weighs about 200 pounds, and has black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen driving a green Ford Escape with no license plates.
UPDATE I: Information and text messages police received lead them to believe Elizabeth possibly didn’t run away with her boyfriend willingly.
Elizabeth’s mother got text messages Thursday from an unknown phone number that claimed to be Elizabeth. The messages said the couple were headed for Mexico. When the mother asked for a photo of Elizabeth, the conversation ended.
“When she asked to send a current photo and that request was refused, that’s the biggest red flag that tells us she might be in danger,” Lattin said.
Investigators have received other information that points to Elizabeth being in danger, Lattin said. He declined to say what that information is.
Local police have notified the U.S. Border Patrol in case the couple tries to leave the country, Lattin said.
UPDATE II: Amber Alert in California for kidnapped girl.
A 19-year-old man accused of abducting a Kennewick girl moved into a house on the same block as the teen just days before she left town with him, police said Friday.
Edwardo Fabien Flores Rosales started an online relationship with Elizabeth Romero while he was living in Hood River, Ore., said Kennewick police Sgt. Ken Lattin. After talking with the 14-year-old through Facebook, Rosales told his family he got a job and moved to Kennewick on Thanksgiving Day.
Rosales paid a full month’s rent for a room in a house on the same block as the girl, Lattin said.
Just days later, he had packed up his stuff, left his house key behind and took off with Elizabeth.
If anyone has any information about Elizabeth’s or Rosales’ whereabouts can call 911 or the Kennewick Police Department’s non-emergency line at 509-628-0333.

Tucson Police Dept. Capt. Mike Gillooly Discusses the discovery of 3 female siblings, aged 12, 13, and 17, held captive
The Arizona Republic reports on this sick and disgusting story:
A Tucson couple was arrested Tuesday after three girls told police they had been imprisoned in a home for up to two years, authorities said.
The girls are siblings — ages 12, 13 and 17 — and police are investigating two of their relatives, a 32-year-old woman and a 34-year-old man, on allegations of child abuse and imprisonment.
Authorities said the girls appeared malnourished and extremely dirty, and were living in filthy conditions.
The girls told police they hadn’t bathed in four to six months and were fed one meal a day, according to a Tucson police statement.
Details were sparse on Tuesday night, but police said they were called at about 4a.m. to a house on reports of an assault. The two youngest girls said they escaped and went to a neighbor for help after the 34-year-old man tried to break into a room while brandishing a knife, the statement said.
Police said they found the 17-year-old girl in a locked bedroom during a search of the home. The sisters told police that the eldest girl was kept in a separate bedroom from the other two and that they had not seen each other for months, possibly up to two years, police said.

Step monster Fernando Richter &
mom (sorry, she is no mother) Sophia Richter
Exactly why were these individuals offered bail, exactly?
The home in Tucson, Ariz. where three girls were held captive was a house of horrors with 24-hour surveillance, an elaborate alarm system and music blasted round the clock, police said Wednesday.
Stepdad Fernando Richter, 34, and mom Sophia Richter, 32, face multiple charges of kidnapping and child abuse of the girls aged 12, 13 and 17.
The girls even resorted to using their closets as modified bathrooms when the parents failed to let them out, cops said Wednesday afternoon at a press conference.
The deranged parents appeared via video in court Wednesday morning. A judge set their bail at $100,000 and $75,000, respectively.
Clark County District Judge Linda Marie Bell Denies OJ Simpson’s New Trail & Upholds His 2008 Conviction on Kidnapping & Armed Robbery
OJ SIMPSON DENIED … IT’S TRUE, WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS, STAYS IN VEGAS AND SO DOES OJ IN PRISON!!!
Clark County, Nevada District Judge Linda Marie Bell has denied O.J. Simpson’s appeal for a new trial. In upholding his 2008 conviction for kidnapping, armed robbery and other charges the judge said that Simpson was denied on “All grounds in the petition lack merit.” Simpson’s “non-dream” legal team’s had asked for a new trial on 22 specific grounds related to his trial and appeal. However, Judge Linda Marie Bell’s 101 page, point-by-point-by-point ruling denied the “Juice” as she stated, “Given the overwhelming amount of evidence, neither the errors in this case, nor the errors collectively, cause this court to question the validity of Mr. Simpson’s conviction.”
A judge in Las Vegas rejected O.J. Simpson’s bid for a new trial on Tuesday, dashing the former football star’s bid for freedom based on the claim that his original lawyer botched his armed robbery and kidnapping trial in Las Vegas more than five years ago.
“All grounds in the petition lack merit and, consequently, are denied,” Clark County District Judge Linda Marie Bell said.
Simpson lawyer Patricia Palm said she wanted to speak to Simpson before commenting on the decision. Ozzie Fumo, her co-counsel in the effort, said he expected they would appeal to the Nevada Supreme Court.
VIDEO - KTNV Channel 13 Action News
OJ Simpson is currently serving 9 to 33 years on his 2008 conviction of kidnapping, armed robbery and 10 other charges in the 2007 Las Vegas incident where Simpson and others were arrested in bizarre Vegas memorabilia heist. Karma baby!
Look for O J and his defense team to appeal this decision in federal court next. As reported at the Las Vegas Sun, Simpson’s attorney Ozzie Fumo said, “This is just the first step and we are going to Nevada Supreme Court and Mr. Simpson will be vindicated when this is done. We’re not giving up this fight and it’s not over.” Note to O J defense team, its over!
Isn’t it amazing how some of these folks just cannot seem to go gentle into that good night and have to put themselves in the media light. Even serving time and being irrelevant, this narcissist still gets PR. Interestingly enough, Dana Pretzer on Scared Monkeys radio was discussing this phenomenon with Dr. Clint VanZandt of those like O J Simpson and George Zimmerman just cannot seem to go away.

9 Month Old Savanna Catherine Todd Missing Since 1994 from Isle of Palms, SC Has Been Found in Australia … 53 Year Old Dorothy Lee Barnett Charged With International Parental Kidnapping
Unbelievable … 9 month old baby missing since 1994 found in Australia nearly 20 years later …
Savanna Catherine Todd, who was kidnapped by her mother in 1994 in South Carolina after she failed to returned her to the girl’s father after a supervised visit in April 1994, has been found alive in Australia. The daughter, now 20, as reported by the Sidney Morning Herald was “safe, healthy and otherwise living a normal life.” Savanna’s father, Benjamin Harris Todd III of Charleston, was granted custody following the couple’s February 1994 divorce. Since being taken out of the United States, Savanna’s name was changed to Samantha. Dorothy Lee Barnett was arrested in Australia on November 4, 2013 and charged with one count of International parental kidnapping and making false statements to attain a passport. Barnett was denied bond and is expected to be extradited to the US. Barnett faces up to 23 years in prison if convicted.
9 month old Savanna Catherine Todd
A girl missing since 1994 has been found and an indictment has been unsealed against the girl’s mother.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, 53-year-old Dorothy Lee Barnett, of Queensland, Australia, has been charged with one count of international parental kidnapping and two statements of false statement in a passport application.
Barnett used to live on Isle of Palms.
Attorneys say Barnett is charged with keeping her infant child, Savanna Catherine Todd, outside of the United States in an effort to keep her ex-husband from having any access.
According to the indictment, Todd was removed from the country when she was 10 months old. She was kept outside of the country until May 2009, the attorney’s office continued.
U.S. Attorney Bill Nettles said Todd, now an adult, was found safe and living an otherwise normal and healthy life.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation didn’t give up either … Agents alleged that they came across evidence that Barnett tried using an alias a decade ago to get an American passport.
Savanna’s picture was posted on websites. Artists created images depicting what she might look like today.
During her alleged time on the lam, Barnett used aliases such as Alexandria Maria Canton, federal authorities said, to evade detection.
Citing court papers, The Australian reported that she got married in 1995 to Juan Geldenhuys in South Africa. She gave birth to a son.
Once in March 2003 and again in March 2004, Barnett used her new name, Alexandria Maria Geldenhuys, to attempt to get a U.S. passport, according to the indictment against her.
She and her new husband later became citizens of New Zealand, then moved to Australia in 2007, The Australian reported. Her husband later left Barnett and died of cancer.

Are the bodies found in shallow graves in the desert that of the missing McStay family?
The investigation into the remains began Monday when a motorcyclist discovered them in a shallow grave between Quarry Road near Highway 15 in the desert outside Victorville, CA. Joseph McStay, 40, his wife Summer, 43, and two young sons, 3 year old Joseph Mateo and 4 year old Gianni, disappeared from their upscale San Diego County home and went missing on February 2, 2010. The family literally went missing without a trace. Now there has been a big development in the case. Four bodies have been found in the Mojave desert.
Facebook: Bring The McStay Family Home.
There has been a big break in a high-profile missing persons case that has stymied investigators for years.
A family of four vanished without a trace more than three years ago. Earlier this week, the remains of four bodies were found in a shallow graves in the desert near Victorville.
Their SUV was found parked near the border. There was a time investigators in San Diego thought surveillance video showed the McStay family making their way into Mexico.
But relatives discounted that theory. They suspected foul play. The McStays left money in their bank accounts and the family’s two dogs were found wandering in their backyard.
Facebook – Bring The McStay Family Home
According to CBS – Los Angeles, two of the bodies have been identified as the parents, Joseph and Summer McStay. J
The skeletal remains found in the desert outside Victorville earlier this week have been identified as at least two members of a Fallbrook family who went missing nearly four years ago, CBS affiliate KFMB in San Diego reported Friday.
Patrick McStay says two of the four bodies found in a shallow grave have been identified as his son Joseph and daughter-in-law Summer McStay. The couple’s two missing sons are still unaccounted for as investigators confirm the identities of the other remains, according to KFMB.
Would have liked a better outcome than this, but at least their family has some form of closure. Hopefully they will get more answers as well. Rest in peace
More than three years ago the McStay family — Joseph, Summer and their two young sons – seemed to vanish into thin air, but Friday authorities confirmed that four sets of skeletal remains found in California’s Mojave Desert are likely those of the couple and their two boys.
San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon said at a press conference that the remains were identified through dental records as those of Joseph McStay, 40, and his wife, Summer, 43.
Authorities are in the process of identifying additional skeletal remains that are believed to be those of the couple’s sons, Gianni and Joseph Jr., who were 4 and 3, respectively, at the time of their disappearance.
UPDATE II: At least one of the remains taken out of one of the grave sites had been bound with an electric cord.
The remains are those of 4-year-old Gianni McStay and his 3-year-old brother, Joseph McStay, the coroner’s division of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.
A state DNA lab confirmed their identities, the department said.

Two U.S. Mariners Kidnapped & Held Hostage from the Oilfield Supply Ship ‘C-Retriever’ Off the Nigeria Coast Last Month Have Been Released
CNN is reporting that two US citizens who were kidnapped from the U.S. flagged C-Retriever off the Nigerian coast last month have been released. The two freed individuals have only been identified U.S. and Nigerian officials as the the ship’s captain and a chief engineer.
Two U.S. citizens who were kidnapped from an oilfield supply ship off Nigeria’s coast last month have been released, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki confirmed Tuesday.
News of the release comes nearly three weeks after armed men stormed the 221-foot U.S.-flagged C-Retriever and kidnapped the two Americans, identified at the time by U.S. and Nigerian officials as the captain and a chief engineer.
The ship, owned by Louisiana-based Edison Chouest Offshore, was attacked October 23 in the piracy-plagued Gulf of Guinea off Nigeria.
The pirate assult on the C-Retriever was first reported at the gCaptain website.
Additional gCaptain sources also indicate that the Edison Chouest-owned, US-flagged platform supply vessel C-Retriever was working in a nearby field off Brass, Nigeria and was also attacked, an incident that our sources indicate was unrelated to the attack on the JTF personnel. Our source notes that the Captain and Chief Engineer, who are both US citizens, were kidnapped. A very close family friend of the Chief Engineer (who identified himself as his brother, but whos name is withheld at his request) confirmed with us that the FBI is working on the case.
