Sunday, May 25 is National Missing Children’s Day.
National Missing Children’s Day is an annual observation in the United States designed to highlight the problem of child kidnapping and abduction. It is observed on May 25 because that is the date in 1979 that 6 year old Ethan Patz disappeared on his way to school in New York City, NY. National Missing Children’s Day was first observed in 1983 when it was first proclaimed by President Ronald Reagan.
National Missing Children’s Day is commemorated this Sunday, May 25 and aims to remind the public of the numerous cases of America’s missing children.
The most recent study conducted by The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children states, that approximately 800,000 children younger than 18 were reported missing in one year.
National Missing Children’s Day has been commemorated in the United States on May 25, since 1983, when it was first proclaimed by President Ronald Reagan.
It falls on the same day as the International Missing Children’s Day.

Key facts from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children:
- The most recent, comprehensive national study for the number of missing children estimated in 1999:
- Approximately 800,000 children younger than 18 were reported missing.
- More than 200,000 children were abducted by family members.
- More than 58,000 children were abducted by nonfamily members.
- An estimated 115 children were the victims of “stereotypical” kidnapping. These “stereotypical” kidnappings involved someone the child did not know or was an acquaintance.

The murder of an abducted child is rare, and an estimated 100 cases in which an abducted child is murdered occur in the U.S. each year. A 2006 study indicated that 76.2 percent of abducted children who are killed are dead within three hours of the abduction.
- The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® has assisted law enforcement in the recovery of more than 193,705 missing children since it was founded in 1984. Our recovery rate for missing children has grown from 62 percent in 1990 to 97 percent today.

Free after a decade …
An unidentified female victim, who was taken and reported missing in 2004 at age 15, has been found alive and her alleged kidnapper has been arrested. 41 year old Isidro Garcia was arrested and taken into custody by police on Tuesday and booked on suspicion of kidnapping and rape. According to reports, authorities say that Garcia was dating the mother of the unidentified victim in 2004 when the suspect assaulted and drugged her mother, then abducted the teenager and held her captive against her will at his his house in Compton, California. Garcia forced the girl to marry him in 2007 and she gave birth to a child in 2012. Isidro Garcia of Bell Gardens was arrested and booked for 209(b)(1) PC – Kidnap for Rape, 288(c)(1) PC – Lewd Act With Minor and 273(a) PC – False Imprisonment.
The woman initially went to police in Bell Gardens to report a domestic dispute, according to Santa Ana police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna.
It was during that conversation she told officers she that was a missing person who had been kidnapped.
“She was in fact taken and held against her will for the past 10 years,” according to Bertagna.
Isidro Garcia was taken into custody on Tuesday on suspicion of kidnapping for rape, lewd acts with a minor and false imprisonment, the Santa Ana Police Department announced Wednesday.
The victim was 15 years old in August 2004, when her mother reported that her daughter and the her live-in boyfriend went missing “after a domestic violence incident.”

Santa Ana PD Detectives locate missing person after 10 years victim of kidnap and sexual assault
In August of 2004, a 15-year-old was reported missing to the Santa Ana Police Department by her mother. The mother reported that her daughter went missing along with her cohabitant boyfriend, Isidro Garcia, after a domestic violence incident. At the time, the mother suspected Garcia of sexually abusing her daughter; however she had no evidence to support this belief.
On 5-20-14, the Victim, now 25-years-old, disclosed the circumstances of her disappearance to law enforcement.
The victim said in June of 2004, while living with her mother and sisters at 811 S. Fairview in Santa Ana, Isidro Garcia began sexually assaulting her. In August of 2004, after Garcia assaulted her mother, Garcia drugged the victim and drove her to a house in Compton. There, Garcia provided the victim with falsified identity documents and locked her overnight in a garage to prevent the victim from fleeing. Over the course of the following months and years, Garcia repeatedly told the victim her family had given up looking for her, and if she tried to go back to them, the family would be deported. The two moved on several occasions to avoid police detection. Garcia frequently physically and sexually assaulted the victim. Garcia arraigned for the two of them to receive employment at a night cleaning service, so he could keep a close eye on the victim.
Illegal Immigrant Oscar Ayala-Arizmendi Charged with First Degree Kidnapping & Rape … Forcibly Held a 27 Year Old Woman as Sex Slave for 18 Months in Buhl, ID
Another illegal coming to America out of an act of love. Or is it an act of rape? Don’t worry Oscar, Barack Obama will let you out of prison like the thousand of other illegal felons …
36 year old illegal immigrant Oscar Ayala-Arizmendi has been charged with first degree kidnapping, rape and possession of a controlled substance as he allegedly forcibly kept a 27 year old woman in his home as a sex slave. Should we have called him an “undocumented” rapist instead? According to the victim, she was forced to be a sex slave, forced to perform sexual acts, shackled in chains, while forced to take meth and with a gun to her head. She eventually escaped on April 8, but it was not until two weeks later, after the woman was arrested on a drug charge and in jail, that she told police her story of horror. This led the police to getting a search warrant for the Twin Falls County home. The authorities found chains and locks mounted to walls and floors, chains on exterior doors, a handgun, and an electrical wire system intended to shock anyone trying to escape. Bail was set at $1 million. Ayala-Arizmendi’s next court appearance is scheduled for May 23.
On Tuesday afternoon around 4:30, Twin Falls County Sheriff’s deputies served a search warrant at Ayala-Arizmendi’s home in Buhl. Inside, they found devices and restraints that back up the story of a 27-year-old woman who claims she was held here against her will.
The woman says the abuse began before they moved into the home in southern Buhl.
She told police that Ayala-Arizmendi raped her repeatedly, forced her to use meth and sometimes held a gun to her head.
In essence, she told investigators, she was Ayala-Arizmendi’s sex slave – forced to perform sexual acts, shackled or with a gun to her head.
The woman said he kept her “drugged up on meth,” making her smoke it against her will more than two to three times a week.
She says the windows of this home were boarded up – exterior doors were chained preventing her from escaping.
But don’t worry, this is just another one of Jeb Bush’s fine upstanding illegals coming to America out of an act of love. Oscar Ayala-Arizmendi better hope he is in America illegally, that way Obama will let him go free like the rest of the illegal murders, rapists and sex offender.
87 Year Old Missing Georgia Woman Shirley Dermond Found Found Dead, Body Found in Lake Oconee … Husband Previously Found Decapitated
Bizarre and Grisly murder investigation continues …
The body of 87 year old missing Shirley Dermond has been found in Lake Oconee, south of Athens, GA. The discovery was made by two fisherman Friday afternoon about five or six miles from the her home. Shirley Dermond had been missing for nearly two weeks. Authorities had believed that Shirley Dermond was abducted from her home in Reynolds Plantation, GA after the police made the grisly discovery in finding the body of her 88 year old husband, Russell Dermond, decapitated.
Shirley Dermond’s body was found in Lake Oconee, south of Athens, Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills told reporters Friday.
“We now, unfortunately, know that Shirley Dermond was murdered,” Sills said. Sills declined to discuss the condition of the body other than to say, “the head was not removed or anything like that.” Authorities were alerted Friday by two fishermen who spotted what they believed to be a body in the lake, some five or six miles from the couple’s home.
Sources tell 11Alive that two fishermen discovered the body near a dam at Lake Oconee on Friday afternoon.
“While we were riding towards the place I was going to go fishing, I noticed something that looked strange — out of the ordinary — so we approached it,” said fisherman Dennis Higgs. “When we got close enough to see what it might be — we thought it might be a buoy or something like that — when we got closer to it, we realized it was more than a buoy. It was something else, so we backed off from it. I think at 2:24, I called 9-1-1.”
Sheriff’s officials confirmed that the body found was Shirley Dermond’s.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office at 706-485-8557.

Uber-Leftist Bill Maher & Conservative Dinesh D’Souza Battle Arianna Huffington & Lib Panel Over Islam, ” Liberals Too PC to Ever Condemn It ”
Condemning Islamist extremists and Muslim religion make strange bedfellows.
Who would have ever thought that liberal comedian Bill Maher and Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza would ever be on the same side of any topic? However, that is what happened on on Friday night HBO’s ‘Real Time’ with Bill Maher. The liberal comedian astonished his fellow leftist panel by arguing that the Islamic religion tends to influence horrific acts of violence and has become the “elephant in the room.” Maher was irked by how liberals “do not stand up for liberalism” and outright condemn brutal Islamic laws that go against values of equality and freedom, especially where women are concerned. Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza opined, claiming that most modern day terrorist attacks have some ties to Islam. He joked that you don’t see a lot of “Buddhist suicide bombers.” Comedian Baratunde Thurston warned that Islam did not have a “monopoly” on extremism as he reminded the panel that Christians also commit acts of violence. Maher then amazingly and correctly responded, “If this was the 14th century, I would be coming down on the Christians because that’s when they were too violent. Religions and cultures change.” WOW, nice. How progressive, liberals are still living and outraged by things that took place in the 14th century.
Maher makes the comment as the libs on the panel and in the audience had no idea what to do or say when Maher continued to question the evils of Islam, according to “Sharia Law, failure to perform Friday prayers could get you whippings or amputations. Because its a religion of Peace. [Uncomfortable audience response]. I know, I’m the bad guy because I am against the people who cut your arms off for not praying.”
“There’s no mention here of connecting this to the religion, which is always what I am seeking to do because I think that’s the elephant in the room,” Maher said. “And that in the religion at large, women are seen as property, second-class at best, often as property.”
Reason’s Matt Welch claimed the kidnappers’ ties to Islam are being highlighted in the media, but also agreed that the religion “is providing a disproportionate share of radical nut bags killing people.”
Huffington Post President Arianna Huffington and comedian Baratunde Thurston both warned Maher against condemning the entire religion because of the behavior of radicals. Thurston also claimed that Islam doesn’t have a “monopoly” on extremism.
“Kind of they do,” Maher said. “Not a monopoly, but perspective is important. … It’s the Titanic hitting the iceberg compared to Whitney Houston dying in her bathtub.”
To answer Bill Maher’s question regarding why liberals do not stand up to Islam and Sharia Law for their despicable treatment of women would mean they would have to admit that this is the real war on women. It is called the liberal double standard.
88 Year Old Russell Dermond Found Murdered & Decapitated, His 87 Year Old Wife Shirley Dermond Missing in Reynolds Plantation, GA
GRUESOME MURDER AND WIFE MISSING IN REYNOLDS PLANTATION, GA.
88 year old Russell Dermond was found murdered in his garage and his wife, 87 year old Shirley Dermond is missing and believed abducted. She is not believed to be a suspect in her husband’s death. Authorities confirmed that Russell Dermond was found decapitated. Investigators believe Russell Dermond was killed between last Friday and Sunday, and they’re still searching for his severed head. Shirley Dermond is 5-foot-2 and weighs 148 pounds. She has gray hair and blue eyes. She is believed to be in danger. In an area where there is almost literally no crime, the the two lived in a multimillion dollar gated community. Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills said he doesn’t believe the attack was random, partly because there was no evidence of forced entry or a struggle.
Investigators are treating her disappearance as an abduction, he said. There is no indication she’s a suspect, and there’s “plenty” to indicate she was taken, he said. Her pocketbook, cell phone and vehicle were all at the million-dollar waterfront home where her husband’s headless body was found.
Investigators believe Russell Dermond was killed between last Friday and Sunday, and they’re still searching for his severed head, Sills told reporters, describing the case as “very unusual” and the most frustrating homicide of his career.
“I don’t think it’s a random incident. I think for whatever reason these people were singled out for this,” Sills said. “They live in the most exclusive neighborhood, or one of the most exclusive neighborhoods, in this county. … They’re on a cul-de-sac in a gated, multimillion dollar resort community that we have no crime in.”
Investigators fear Dermond’s 87-year-old wife, Shirley, was abducted or killed. They were searching for her with the help of the FBI.
“We looked in the woods adjacent to the house, we looked in the lake,” Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills said during a news conference. “Her pocketbook and things like that are there, her cellphone is there, the car is there — we don’t have anything to track.”
“I certainly hope that she’s still alive but I’m not overly optimistic because of her husband,” he said Thursday afternoon. “If it’s an abduction, you would expect some sort of extortion demand. If it was an assassination you would think both of the people would be there — both bodies would be there.”
Anyone with more information should call the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office at 706-485-8557.
Hillary Clinton’s State Department Refused to Brand Boko Haram as Terrorists … But, Hillary Called the Abduction of the Girls by Boko Haram was “Abominable, It’s Criminal, It’s an Act of Terrorism”
HOW PRESIDENTIAL … Hillary Clinton, I was for not calling Boko Haram terrorists, before I was for it.
Former Secretary of State and 2016 Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has a lot of explaining to do. In the wake of the Muslim Islamist terror group Boko Haram kidnapping nearly 300 girls and threatening to sell them into human sex slavery, Hillary Clinton like many jumped on the bandwagon of outrage. On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton called the abduction of the girls by Boko Haram was “abominable, it’s criminal, it’s an act of terrorism and it really merits the fullest response possible, first and foremost from the government of Nigeria. Clinton went on to say that as Secretary of State she had numerous meetings with Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan and had urged the Nigerian government to do more on counter-terrorism.
Oh contraire mon frère … Hillary Clinton supposedly urged the Nigerian government to do more on counter-terrorism, but as reported at The Daily Beast, Hillary’s State Department refused to brand Boko Haram as terrorists. According to accounts by Josh Rogin, what Hillary Clinton failed to mention was that her own State Department refused to place Boko Haram on the list of foreign terrorist organizations in 2011, after the group bombed the U.N. headquarters in Abuja. The refusal of branding Boko Haram as terrorists came despite the urging of the Justice Department, the FBI, the CIA, and over a dozen senators and congressmen.But of course naming a new group to the terrorist list would have gone against Obama’s reelection talking points that al Qaeda was on the run.
As the folks at Hot Air opines,“Sound familiar? … Now Hillary wants to fight Boko Haram with hashtags. Too bad she didn’t fight them with real resources when she had the chance.”
Under Hillary Clinton, the State Department repeatedly declined to fully go after the terror group responsible for kidnapping hundreds of girls.
The State Department under Hillary Clinton fought hard against placing the al Qaeda-linked militant group Boko Haram on its official list of foreign terrorist organizations for two years. And now, lawmakers and former U.S. officials are saying that the decision may have hampered the American government’s ability to confront the Nigerian group that shocked the world by abducting hundreds of innocent girls.
In the past week, Clinton, who made protecting women and girls a key pillar of her tenure at the State Department, has been a vocal advocate for the 200 Nigerian girls kidnapped by Boko Haram, the loosely organized group of militants terrorizing northern Nigeria. Her May 4 tweet about the girls, using the hashtag #BringOurGirlsBack, was cited across the media and widely credited for raising awareness of their plight.
What Clinton didn’t mention was that her own State Department refused to place Boko Haram on the list of foreign terrorist organizations in 2011, after the group bombed the U.N. headquarters in Abuja. The refusal came despite the urging of the Justice Department, the FBI, the CIA, and over a dozen senators and congressmen.
But of course Clinton’s response to these questions will be, we have 300 girls threatened to be sold into sex slavery, what difference does it make that Boko Haram are terrorists.
Boko Haram Claims Responsibility For Kidnapping More Than 200 Missing Nigerian Girls … Islamist Militant Terrorist Leader Says … “I Will Sell Them … Allah Says I Should Sell”
THE REAL WAR ON WOMEN …
Abubakar Shekau, man claiming to be the Boko Haram leader has claimed responsibility for the mass kidnapping of over 200 Nigerian girls. In a video tape the Muslim Islamist militant leader said, “I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market, by Allah. There is a market for selling humans. Allah says I should sell.” Over 200 girls were abducted on April 14, 2014 when a school in north-east Nigeria was attacked by members of the Islamist group Boko Haram, whose name means “Western education is forbidden,” in Chibok.
And of course Islam is a religion of peace.
About 230 girls are still believed to be missing, prompting widespread criticism of the Nigerian government.
The Boko Haram insurgency has left thousands dead since 2009.
The girls were taken from their boarding school in Chibok, in the northern state of Borno, on the night of 14 April.
“I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market, by Allah,” a man claiming to be Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau said in a video first obtained by Agence France-Presse.
“There is a market for selling humans. Allah says I should sell. He commands me to sell. I will sell women. I sell women,” he continued, according to a CNN translation from the local Hausa language.
Boko Haram is a terrorist group receiving training from al Qaeda affiliates, according to U.S. officials. Its name means “Western education is sin.” In his nearly hour long, rambling video, Shekau repeatedly called for Western education to end.
Democrats would tell you that the GOP is conducting a war on women. Sorry, but you trivialize the actual war on woman and their exploitation that is taking place in the world no different than Democrats fauz cries of racism just because someone may disagree with Obama’s policies. As Legal Insurrection states, take a real good look at the real war on women courtesy of Islamists.
39 Year Old Jason Wayne Autry Indicted on Aggravated Kidnapping & First Degree Murder Charges in Case of Missing Holly Bobo … Prosecutors Plan to Indict Shayne Kyle Austin
SECOND INDIVIDUAL CHARGED IN CASE OF MISSING HOLLY BOBO … MORE TO COME.
39 year old Jason Wayne Autry has been charged with aggravated kidnapping and first degree murder in the 2011 disappearance of Tennessee nursing student Holly Bobo. Autry was already in prison, currently serving a three-year sentence in Riverbend Maximum Security Institution, for an unrelated assault conviction. Previously, Zachary Adams was indicted last month on the same kidnapping and murder charges. Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director Mark Gwyn stated that he believes that there are more people with information and possible involvement said, “expect more announcements in the coming days and weeks.” Holly Bobo went missing on April 13, 2011 in Darden, Tennessee.
According to the documents, prosecutors plan to indict Shayne Kyle Austin, who previously had been granted immunity in exchange for his cooperation in the investigation.
The state voided the immunity agreement because Austin was not completely truthful and forthcoming, according to an email from Assistant District Attorney General Beth Boswell to Austin’s lawyer, Luke Evans. The email was sent on March 27.
Jason Wayne Autry
A second man has been charged with murder in the 2011 disappearance of Tennessee nursing student Holly Bobo.
Other suspects can expect police to be “on their doorstep” soon, Tennessee’s top investigator told reporters Tuesday.
Jason Wayne Autry, who is already in prison for an unrelated assault conviction, was indicted on especially aggravated kidnapping and first-degree murder charges by a special grand jury Tuesday, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director Mark Gwyn said at a news conference in Decaturville Tuesday afternoon.
Autry, 39, was a longtime friend of Zachary Adams, 29, who was indicted last month on the same kidnapping and murder charges, Gwyn said. Autry, from Holladay, Tennessee, has a lengthy criminal history, he said.
