Michael Beasley lives on Bagdad Highway, near the location where a Twentynine Palms Water District employee spotted Corwin’s abandoned, blue Toyota Corolla on Monday, June 30.

Michael Beasley tells San Diego, California, TV station CBS 8 that on the morning of Saturday, June 28, after Corwin left her at home in Twentynine Palms, reportedly for a solo day trip to Joshua Tree National Park, he saw her meet a man, exit and lock her blue Toyota, and then climb into the man’s red sedan.

“They were just sitting and chatting,” said Beasley. “If she wanted to get out of the car and say, ‘I don’t want to be in this car,’ she could have.”

The pair then drove off together in the man’s vehicle, he said.

Missing and Kidnapped Jewish Teens Eyal Yifrah, Gilad Shaar & Naftali Fraenkel (Dual Israeli-American Citizenship) Found Deceased in West Bank … Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Vows, “Hamas Will Pay”

The search for three missing teens in Israel has come to a sad, savage and bloody end …

19 year old Eyal Yifrah, 16 year old Gilad Shaar and 16 year old Naftali Fraenkel, who had dual Israeli-American citizenship, have been missing since June 12, 2014 have been found murdered in the West Bank north of Hebron. The three went missing while hitching home from a West Bank religious school. Israeli officials said at the time that one of the teens called a police emergency line said: “We’ve been kidnapped.” They were not heard from again.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowing “Hamas will pay.”

The Israeli air force conducted strikes early Tuesday morning against 34 targets in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip in response to rocket attacks against Israel’s southern communities. It was not immediately clear if the airstrikes, which targeted Hamas and Islamic Jihad assets in the strip and came after more than 20 rockets were fired into southern Israel over the past two days, resulted in any casualties, the Jerusalem Post reported.

Also on Tuesday, a Palestinian who Israel said was a member of Hamas was shot dead when he threw a grenade at forces carrying out an arrest raid in the West Bank. The man was the first casualty since the bodies were found.

Israel_3 teens killed

UPDATE I: The Times of Israel: What happened on the night of the kidnapping.

The three teens were waiting at Geva’ot Intersection, west of the settlement of Alon Shvut in the Etzion Bloc south of Jerusalem, soon after 10:15 p.m, looking to catch a ride heading west on Route 367 toward Beit Shemesh and from there to locations in central Israel where each of them lived.

Inside the Hyundai, Israel alleges, were Hamas terrorists Amer Abu Aysha and Marwan Kawasme.

Recognizing, too late, that the car was not an innocent Israeli vehicle, one of the teens called the police at 10:25 p.m. and whispered, “We’ve been kidnapped.” The call was transferred immediately to a senior officer, who continued to ask questions but received no reply. The call lasted for 2:09 minutes and was then cut off. The officer called the number eight more times, but received three busy signals and reached voicemail five times.

The kidnappers, apparently realizing that a call had been made, shot the three teens dead soon afterwards in the backseat of the car, military sources said.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday night that they were murdered “in cold blood.”

UPDATE II: Israel Launches Airstrikes in Gaza Strip.

Israel said it launched a series of airstrikes against targets in the Gaza Strip early Tuesday. The military said the strikes hit 34 targets and injured four Palestinians across the Hamas-controlled territory.

It also said approximately six rockets hit Israel, including two that struck an area north of the city of Sderot. No damage or injuries have yet been reported.

Israel launches Gaza air strike after bodies of missing teens found.

Israel bombed dozens of sites in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, striking at Hamas after finding the bodies of three missing teenagers whose abduction and killing it blames on the Palestinian Islamist group.

Israel’s security cabinet, which held an emergency session late on Monday and was due to meet again on Tuesday, was split on the scope of any further action in the coastal enclave or in the occupied West Bank, officials said. The United States and regional power-broker Egypt urged restraint.

The military said aircraft attacked 34 sites, mostly belonging to Hamas, though its statement did not link the strikes to the abductions. Palestinian medics said two people were slightly wounded.

The military cited 18 Palestinian rockets launched against Israel from Gaza in the past two days.

The Islamist group has neither confirmed nor denied involvement in the disappearance of the students as they hitchhiked near a Jewish settlement on June 12 nor in the cross-border rocket salvoes from Gaza.

A California firefighter who went missing two weeks ago during a camping trip after he ran after his dog has been found dead among rugged terrain in Los Padres National Forest, authorities said Friday.

Michael Herdman, 36, ran after his black lab, Duke, the night of June 13 while he was barefoot and wearing just a T-shirt and shorts.

Missing: Charlie Bothuelle V

The FBI joined Detroit police in the search for Charlie Bothuelle V, who was last seen at 9 p.m. June 14, leaving his home in the 1300 block of Nicolet Place, near Gratiot Avenue, after working out.

Last week, the FBI used cadaver dogs to search Charlie’s home, which led them to a nearby elementary school playground where Charlie is known to hang out. The search went cold at the playground, said the boy’s father, Charlie Bothuelle IV.

Bothuelle and several other family members passed out fliers last week at the nearby Martin Luther King Apartments, where one resident told relatives she saw Charlie walking east on Lafayette on June 14.

Police launched a new search for the missing boy Tuesday night. Several K-9s sniffed around the Martin Luther King apartments on Lafayette.

Police launched a new search for the missing boy Tuesday night. Several K-9s sniffed around the Martin Luther King apartments on Lafayette searching for the 12-year-old.

At the same time, the boy’s father has been hitting the streets every day searching for his boy. Tuesday night he appeared on “Nancy Grace” begging for help to find him.

UPDATE I: Lie detector twist in case of missing 12-year-old Charlie Bothuell.

Hmm, why would you not tell police the truth about something that seems so minor? Originally, the father of the missing boy told police that Charlie was working out when he stopped to go to the bathroom and never came back.   However, Tuesday he told a different story. He says there were some chores that he didn’t do and he cut his work out short.

There is a new twist in the case of a missing 12-year-old boy from Detroit who was last seen leaving his home on June 14.

Polygraph tests for Charlie Bothuell’s father have come back inconclusive. The child’s stepmother declined to take the polygraph test.

She tells 7 Action News her attorney told her to decline the lie detector test because she did not think she would be treated fairly.

The father and stepmother both say they feel like they have been treated like suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detroit Police’s Criminal Investigation’s Department at (313) 596-1140.

UPDATE I: The Search continues for missing Michael Herdman:

Michael Herdman, 36, and fellow firefighter/paramedic Taylor Byars hiked to Tar Creek Trail and set up camp along the Sespe Creek on Friday evening when Herdman’s dog ran away.

Herdman, who was barefoot and wearing shorts and a T-shirt, along with Byars, ran after the dog.

A short time later, the two men became separated, authorities said.

Byars searched for Herdman for nearly two days before he made his way out of the wilderness and reported his friend missing Sunday evening.

Deputies said it took a long time for Byars to report what happened because the camp was so far out.

Investigators said there are no signs of foul play.

Byars made his way back to the campsite, but Herdman, a seven-year firefighter veteran, and his dog, Duke, never returned.
