Missing: Sarah Goode

UPDATE I: Missing Sarah Goode’s car found under ‘suspicious circumstances.

Suffolk County police said Goode’s car, a 1999 BMW 328i, was then found somewhere in the Medford area “under suspicious circumstances” and that it is now “being safeguarded by police.” Police declined to provide additional details on where the car was recovered or what led them to believe the situation is suspicious.

UPDATE II: Sarah Patricia Goode, 21, went to work Friday, and vanished after a night of watching TV with friends.

There were apparent signs of a struggle inside Goode’s unoccupied BMW, which police towed away – leaving the neighborhood fraught with anxiety.

“We’re horrified – I mean, we’re praying that she, you know, maybe just didn’t tell her parents where she was going,” one neighbor said.

One witness also said there appeared to be blood in Goode’s vehicle.

Police have been searching a wooded area near where the car was parked, 1010 WINS’ Mona Rivera reported. Officers were armed with machetes and other tools to cut through brush as they scoured through the woods.

But nothing had been found as of Monday.

UPDATE III: Woman’s Body Found on Long Island near where  missing Sarah Goode’s car was found.

An unidentified woman’s body was found in a wooded area on Long Island Thursday evening, close to the scene where a missing 21-year-old mother’s car was spotted this past weekend.

Suffolk County police received a 911 call at 6:17 p.m. about a woman’s body in the woods off Camden Court in Medford. The body was recovered a short time afterward, police said.

UPDATE IV: Body found in Long Island woods is the missing mom of 4-year-old daughter.

The body of a woman found in a wooded area on Long Island is the young mom who’s been missing for nearly a week, family members said Friday.

A search party of 40 to 45 people scouring the woods for 21-year-old Sarah Goode found the body in Medford off Camden Court at about 6:15 p.m. Thursday, authorities said. It was discovered “within a mile” from where Goode’s abandoned 1999 BMW was found, cops said.

The Suffolk County police department has not officially identified the remains, but distraught family members believe it is the Longwood High School graduate.

Police are asking anyone with information to call the Sixth Squad at 631-854-8652 or Crime Stoppers 800-220-TIPS. All calls will remain confidential.

89 Year Old British Royal Navy Vet Bernard Jordan Goes Missing from The Pines Nursing Home in Sussex, England … Found Safe at 70th Anniverary D-Day Ceremonies in Normandy, France (VIDEO)

IF THERE COULD EVER BE CALLED A GOOD MISSING PERSON’S CASE,  THIS WOULD BE IT … A MILITARY VET GOES ON ONE MORE MISSION!

We do so many missing person cases that end in tragedy, heartbreak and unbelievable sorrow. However, the following one just might be one of the more inspirational stories ever.

89 year old British Royal Navy veteran Bernard Jordan went missing Thursday, June 5, 2014 from The Pines nursing home in Sussex, England in the town of Hove. Police were called on Thursday night when the nursing home staff realized Jordan was missing. He had gone out at 10.30am and had not been seen since. However, this missing person story is not your typical one, what would one expect from a 90 year old military vet on a mission? What a story of perseverance and epitomizes yet another reason why those who fought in World War II are called our “Greatest Generation”.

Bernard Jordan

It would appear that veteran Bernard Jordan was determined to get to the 70th D-Day commemorations in Normandy on Friday so he snuck away from his nursing home without warning and made his way across the English Chanel to Normandy, France.  Mr. Jordan slipped out of the nursing home wearing a gray raincoat; however, underneath he had his military jacket complete with war medals. Eventually, Bernard Jordan contacted the Hove police to tell them that he was okay and will be returning after the D-Day ceremonies.

A police spokesman earlier said: “We have spoken to the veteran who called the home today and are satisfied that the pensioner is fine and that his friends are going to ensure he gets back to Hove safely over the next couple of days after the D-Day celebrations finish.”

Some reports had stated that the nursing home would not allow the vet to attend the D-Day ceremonies; however, that does not seem to be the case. It is more like they had tried at the last minute to get him to attend on an accredited tour to Normandy, but failed. So what was any determined veteran to do but find a way to improvise, adapt and overcome. This may be the last D-Day remembrance ceremony that Bernard Jordan ever has an opportunity to attend. For his will to accomplish his mission, we say KUDOS!!! I second Patterico ‘s Pontification comment that “I love this story more than words can say.”  What a metaphor for the “Greatest Generation”.

“Mr. Jordan has full capacity, which means that he can come and go from the home as he pleases, which he does on most days” Peter Curtis, chief executive of Gracewell Healthcare told the BBC.

“At no stage was he banned from going to the commemorations,” Curtis added.

Staff members at the home had actually tried to get Jordan on an accredited tour with the Royal British Legion but he made his request too late so it wasn’t possible.

Les Hamilton, another former mayor of Hove who knows Jordan, told the BBC the vet had attended the 50th and 60th memorial services in Normandy.

“The memorial services meant a lot to him. He clearly didn’t want to miss what might be his last one,” Hamilton said.

Hero’s Welcome For ‘Great Escape’ D-Day Veteran.

A D-Day veteran who went “AWOL” from his care home to see Friday’s commemorations in France has returned to a hero’s welcome.

Bernard Jordan, 90, was cheered and hugged by staff waving Union Flags at The Pines nursing home in Hove, Sussex.

“I had a great time. I’m really pleased I did it,” he said after the Brittany Ferries ship Normandie arrived in Portsmouth.

Quizzed on whether he would go back next year, he replied: “Yes, I expect so. If I am still here, definitely!”

The former Royal Navy officer said his wife had known about his trip.

God Bless you Bernard Jordan.

Daily Commentary – Thursday, June 5, 2014 – Former Members of Bergdahl’s Unit Angry When He Vanished

Say Hello To the Five Identified Taliban Prisoners Released by Barack Obama from GITMO in Exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl … Meet the GITMO 5

The Taliban FIVE released from GITMO have been identified.

Yesterday, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the only living POW held by the Taliban in Afghanistan was freed in exchange for five Afghan detainees from GITMO. Barack Obama was quick to take the praise yesterday and use phrases that began with an “I”.     The president stated Bowe’s recovery is a reminder of America’s unwavering commitment to leave no man or woman in uniform behind on the battlefield, which may have the have an asterisk after it. Who is to say that terrorists do not try an do the same? As reported at TWS, now it is time to meet the GITMO 5, five of the most dangerous Taliban commanders in U.S. custody.

  1. Mullah Mohammad Fazl (Taliban army chief of staff)
  2. Mullah Norullah Noori (senior Taliban military commander)
  3. Abdul Haq Wasiq (Taliban deputy minister of intelligence):
  4. Khairullah Khairkhwa (Taliban governor of the Herat province and former interior minister)
  5. Mohammed Nabi (senior Taliban figure and security official)

More from The Weekly Standard: Five of the Most Dangerous Taliban Commanders in U.S. Custody Exchanged for American Captive.

The Taliban has long demanded that the “Gitmo 5” be released in order for peace talks to begin in earnest. The Obama administration has desperately sought to engage the Taliban as American forces are drawn down in Afghanistan, but those talks have gone nowhere to this point.  At first, the administration set preconditions for the talks, including that the Taliban break its relationship with al Qaeda. When it became clear that this was a non-starter, the administration decided to make the Taliban’s desired break with al Qaeda a goal, and no longer a precondition, for its diplomacy.

There is little hope that the peace talks will be more successful now. But the president seems to believe that Bergdahl’s exchange for the Gitmo 5 (who are reportedly being transferred to Qatar) may break the ice. “While we are mindful of the challenges, it is our hope Sergeant Bergdahl’s recovery could potentially open the door for broader discussions among Afghans about the future of their country by building confidence that it is possible for all sides to find common ground,” Obama said in his statement.

The Obama administration says that security measures have been put into place to make sure that the Gitmo 5 do not pose a threat to American national security. Let’s hope that is true; it certainly has not been the case with many ex-Gitmo detainees in the past.

Taliban Detainees Turned Over by U.S. in Bergdahl Deal:

MOHAMMED FAZL: A February 2008 Pentagon document said Fazlserved as Taliban deputy minister of defense and as a seniorcommander who was chief of staff of the Taliban army. The U.S.military said he was wanted by the United Nations for possiblewar crimes including the murder of thousands of Afghanistan’sminority Shi’ite Muslims between 1998 and 2001. It said he wasborn in 1967 in Afghanistan’s Uruzgan province. According toU.S. military documents, Fazl was also on the scene of aNovember 2001 prison riot that killed CIA operative JohnnyMicheal Spann, the first American who died in combat in theAfghan war. There is no evidence, however, that Fazl played anydirect role in Spann’s death.

MULLAH NORULLAH NOORI: A February 2008 Pentagon document said Noori was a senior Taliban military commander in the Afghan city of Mazar-e-Sharif during fighting in late 2001 after the U.S. invasion. It said he also was the Taliban governor for two provinces and was wanted by the United Nations for possible war crimes including the murder of thousands of Shi’ite Muslims. It said he was born in 1967 in Afghanistan’s Zabul province.

NORULLAH NOORI_GITMO 5

KHAIRULLAH KHAIRKHWA: A March 2008 Pentagon document said Khairkhwa was a senior Taliban official serving as the minister of interior, governor of Herat and a military commander. It said that after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States, he represented the Taliban during meetings with Iranian officials seeking to support hostilities against U.S. forces in Afghanistan. It said he was born in 1967 in Afghanistan’s Kandahar province.

ABDUL HAQ WASIQ: A January 2008 Pentagon document said Wasiq served as the Taliban deputy minister of intelligence. “He was central to the Taliban’s efforts to form alliances with other Islamic fundamentalist groups to fight alongside the Taliban against U.S. and Coalition forces after the 11 September2001 attacks,” the document said. It said he was born in 1971 in Afghanistan’s Ghazni province.

ABDUL HAQ WASIQ_Gitmo 5

MOHAMMED NABI: A January 2008 Pentagon document said Nabi was a senior Taliban official who “served in multiple leadership roles.” It said he “maintained weapons caches and facilitated the smuggling of fighters and weapons.” It said he was born in1968 in Afghanistan’s Khost province.

UPDATE I: What the hell was this TWEET from father of released Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

Below is the tweet from Bob Bergdahl’s account, which was published May 28 and was deleted Saturday night.  Imagine that? He us still working to free all GITMO prisoners, what is up with this? God will repay the death of every Afghan child? Why didn’t the father of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl just end his tweet with allahu akbar?

Six Climbers Reported Missing on Mt. Rainier; Helicopter Search Begun for 4 Clients of Seattle-based Alpine Ascents International & 2 Guides (Update: Climbers Feared Dead After 3000 ft Fall)

Six climbers have been reported missing on Mt. Rainier in Washington state. The six climbers set out Monday along White River Trail, then reached Thumb Rock on Tuesday, elevation 10,700 feet. The group was last heard from on Wednesday night by satellite phone when they reported they were going to turn around because of bad weather. A helicopter search for the missing climbers is focusing on the northwest shoulder of the mountain at the Liberty Ridge area, near where they were last heard from.

Six climbers are missing on Mount Rainier, and a helicopter search was launched on Saturday for them, a National Parks spokeswoman said.

The missing group includes four clients of Seattle-based Alpine Ascents International and two guides. They were due to return from the mountain on Friday. When they did not return, the climbing company notified park officials, Park Ranger Fawn Bauer said.

“The last contact with them was at 12,800 feet,” Bauer said.

Mount Rainier, southeast of Seattle, stands at 14,410 feet and attracts thousands of climbers trying to reach its summit every year.

The search for the missing climbers is focusing on the northwest shoulder of the mountain at the Liberty Ridge area, near where they were last heard from, Bauer said. Saturday’s search includes a team of three climbing rangers on the ground and flyovers with a Hughes helicopter. An Army Chinook helicopter is on standby at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

UPDATE I: 6 climbers on Mt. Rainier believed dead after 3,300-foot fall.

All six climbers are believed to be dead after searchers then spotted debris and climbing gear but no signs of life at the site. It is believed that the bodies of all six climbers are there, and it appears they fell about 3,300 feet down the face of a steep rockfall. Mount Rainier National Park spokeswoman Patti Wold said, “There is no viable chance of survival from such a fall.”

A group of six climbers missing on Mount Rainier are all believed to be dead after plunging more than 3,000 feet down a steep rockfall at the peak’s upper elevations.

A helicopter search was launched for the missing climbers Saturday morning after they failed to return on time from a scheduled five-day ascent of the mountain.

Officials said searchers found climbing gear and detected pings from the climbers’ emergency beacons at the 9,500-foot level of the mountain. Their last known location before that was at 12,800 feet on Liberty Ridge.

“All indications point toward a fall of 3,300 feet from near the party’s last known location,” said Mount Rainier National Park spokeswoman Patti Wold. “There is no viable chance of survival from such a fall.”

Nigerian Defense Chief Air Marshal Alex Badeh Says They Have Located the Missing 300 School Girls Abducted by Boko Haram … Fears Use of Force to Free Them Could Get them Killed (VIDEO)

Abducted Nigerian school girls supposedly found …

Nigerian Defense Chief Air Marshal Alex Badeh stated yesterday that the Nigerian military has located the nearly 300 abducted school girls taken by the radical Islamist group Boko Haram. However, he fears that if the military tried to free them, many of the girls could be killed in the process. Badeh made this announcement in front of thousands of protesters in front of the Defense Ministry Headquarters, but did not say anything specific about where the girls are located. The terror Islamist group Boko Haram abducted nearly 300 girls on April 14 from a boarding school in Chibok in northern Nigeria.

VIDEO – CNN

Nigeria’s military has located nearly 300 school girls abducted by Islamic extremists but fears using force to try to free them could get them killed, the country’s chief of defense said Monday.

Air Marshal Alex Badeh told demonstrators supporting the much criticized military that Nigerian troops can save the girls. But he added, “we can’t go and kill our girls in the name of trying to get them back.”

He spoke to thousands of demonstrators who marched to Defense Ministry headquarters in Abuja, the capital. Many were brought in on buses, indicating it was an organized event.

Asked by reporters where they had found the girls, Badeh refused to elaborate.

“We want our girls back. I can tell you we can do it. Our military can do it. But where they are held, can we go with force?” he asked the crowd.

People roared back, “No!”

“If we go with force what will happen?” Badeh asked.

“They will die,” the demonstrators responded.
