5 Year Old Jerold Joseph Williams Missing Since 8/6/15 Near Jacob Lake in Northern Arizona (Update: Body of Missing Boy Found)

5 year old Jerold Joseph Williams went  missing on Thursday, August 6, 2015 near Lake Jacob in Northern Arizona. According to the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office, the Colorado City boy went missing at about 1:30 p.m. Thursday while chasing grasshoppers 100 to 200 yards from his campsite. His mother said she lost sight of him, and she and others from the campsite looked for Jerold for the next four hours. The Coconino County Sheriff’s Office received a call on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. of a report of a missing 5-year-old boy at a campsite 12 miles south of Jacob Lake.

Missing:Jerold Joseph Williams

Coconino County authorities are searching for a 5-year-old boy who went missing from a campsite about 12 miles south of Jacob Lake.

According to Gerry Blair with the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office, Jerold Joseph Williams and his mother were camping with 15 to 20 friends and relatives at an unimproved campsite in the area of Highway 67 off of Forest Service Road 241. The area lies within the northern portion of the Kaibab National Forest.

Jerold was chasing grasshoppers when his mother lost sight of him at approximately 1:30 p.m., according to sheriff’s office spokesman Gerry Blair.

Jerold is described as a white male, approximately 3 feet 6 inches tall and about 35 pounds. He has a thin build, light complexion, brown eyes and brown hair that is cut very short. He had visible facial abrasions and was last seen wearing a gray or tan shirt, blue jeans, hiking boots and long underwear.

UPDATE I: Multi-Agency Task Force searches for 5-year-old boy near Jacob Lake.

Coconino County Sheriff’s Deputies were immediately dispatched to the campsite. Upon their arrival they spoke with the missing child’s mother who identified her son as Jerold Joseph Williams. According to Mrs. Williams, she and her son were with 15 to 20 other friends and family members who were camping in the area.

UPDATE II: Search continues for 5-year-old Jerold Williams, Jacob Lake.

Coconino County Sheriff’s Office posted a notice Friday night on its Facebook page that the case is still active and ongoing with ground and air resources. The post noted that radio and phone communication is limited in the search area, which may account for limited updates.

The typical Kaibab National Forest area is high mountainous area, Kane County Director of Emergency Services Alan Alldredge said.

From what members of his Search and Rescue Team who assisted in the search Friday said, it sounds like pretty heavy forest, Alldredge said, maybe a lot of downed trees in the area that made it kind of hard to work their way through.

UPDATE III: Search enters 3rd day for Jerold Joseph Williams, 5, missing in northern Arizona.

Sheriff’s Office spokesman Gerry Blair said rescuers searched for Jerold Joseph Williams by air and foot on Friday and continued during the night with ATVs and foot patrols.

U.S. Air Force helicopters equipped with night vision will continue scouring the rugged terrain in a remote area north of the Grand Canyon, Blair said.

Heavy rains and 40-mph-plus winds Friday limited the amount of time searchers were able to utilize aircraft and created extremely muddy conditions, according to Blair.

Improved weather conditions Saturday aided the approximately 300 to 350 searchers and allowed for the use of more air resources, Blair said.

The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with any information to contact the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office at 928-774-4523.

UPDATE IV: Body of missing 5-year-old boy found in N. Ariz.

The search for a missing 5-year-old boy who wandered from his family’s campsite north of the Grand Canyon last week ended Monday evening when searchers located the child’s dead body, officials said.

Coconino County sheriff’s officials did not immediately release further details. A sheriff’s spokesman said the body was found in an area with poor cell reception and, as a result, communication with investigators was limited.

53 Year Old Free diver Natalia Molchanova Missing Since 8/2/15 and Feared Dead off the Coast of Spain Near the Island of Formentera

53 year old free diver Natalia Molchanova has been missing since Sunday, August 8, 2015 off the coast of Spain near the Island of Formentera. Molchanova was “recreationally freediving” without fins on Sunday when she became separated from her group. She disappeared approximately two miles northwest of the port of La Savina at Poniente de es Freus. Natalia Molchanova holds 41 world records and is a 23-time world champion in freediving. The extreme sport requires divers to hold their breath rather than use scuba gear or oxygen tanks. Sadly, this trailblazer in the sport is feared dead.

World champion free diver Natalia Molchanova was missing and feared dead Wednesday, more than two days after she disappeared while recreationally diving off the coast of Spain.

The international diving association AIDA said the 53-year-old Russian apparently dove into a strong current off the island of Formentera.

“Search efforts have been ongoing during daylight hours and the next day since she was reported missing by three peers,” AIDA said in a statement.

Free divers swim as deeply as they can while holding their breath. AIDA said Molchanova could hold her breath for nine minutes.

Molchanova, the mother of two, is the most decorated competitive free diver in the world. AIDA said she holds 41 world records and is a 23-time world champion. She also has a doctorate in teaching sciences and has authored multiple scientific articles and two free diving training handbooks. She designed and taught free-diving programs worldwide, training thousands of divers.

Natalia Molchanova

From AIDA International: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – The Worlds Most Accomplished and Famous Female Freediver, Natalia Molchanova, is Missing.

Formentera, Spain. Natalia Molchanova was recreationally freediving off the coast of Spain on August 2, 2015 when she was separated from her peers. She was diving without fins to around 30 to 40 m and supposable got into strong underwater current. Search efforts have been ongoing during daylight hours and the next day since she was reported missing by three peers. She disappeared while diving approximately two miles northwest of the port of La Savina at Poniente de es Freus.

Natalia is a proud mother of Oksana and Alexey. She loved children and was awaiting the day when she would become a Grandmother. She was an inspiration to all freedivers and despite being one of the fiercest competitors in the world, she was always calm and relaxed during competitions. She said “birth and death are important, but freediving competitions are just games for adults”. The cause of Natalia’s disappearance is unknown, but she was doing what she loved. Natalia has a passion for freediving that burned so deep inside of her that she dedicated her life to it.

NY Times – Free Diver Natalia Molchanova Descends for Fun, Then Vanishes.

Natalia Molchanova, widely regarded as the greatest free diver in history, wore her favorite purple wet suit Sunday on a chartered boat off the coast of Formentera, an island near Ibiza. Only 1.5 millimeters thick, the wet suit was low buoyancy, designed specifically for divers like her who want to go deep on a single breath. It was a Molchanova, the brand she started with her son, Alexey Molchanov.

With clear skies and a light breeze on the Balearic Sea, off the eastern coast of Spain, Ms. Molchanova attached a neck weight — a pound or two, at most — that would help her descend. Then she dipped into the water to begin what divers call breathing up. A lower heart rate enables divers to use precious oxygen more efficiently. To relax deeply, Ms. Molchanova would inhale for a few seconds, then exhale twice as long and twice as deep.

Those may have been among Ms. Molchanova’s last breaths. She then proceeded to attempt a recreational dive to a depth that was modest for her, and she never resurfaced. After two days of intense search efforts, Alexey Molchanov said Tuesday afternoon that his mother, 53, was not expected to be found alive.

The search for a missing 8-year-old girl came to a tragic end after police found a body inside a dumpster at a complex in Northern California where she was last seen riding her scooter. A teenage boy, who also lives in the complex, was arrested in the case.

Santa Cruz Police Chief Kevin Vogel said the body found by a detective Monday night at a Santa Cruz artist community and housing center is likely that of Madyson Middleton.

The 15-year-old suspect was arrested, and was being questioned by police.

When reporters asked if the clothing on the victim matched the clothing Madyson was wearing when last seen Sunday evening, Vogel stated that it’s too soon to be certain.

UPDATE II: Continued updates of the Coast Guard  search for the missing teens.

Missing Boys at sea

UPDATE III: Families hold out hope for Florida teens missing at sea.

Rescuers endured a fourth night of an anxious search for two young Floridians born and bred as boaters who vanished on the high seas.

The Coast Guard scoured an area the size of West Virginia with no sign of the boaters by early Tuesday. The 14-year-old boys’ vessel was found capsized two days earlier. But relatives and friends of the teens were clinging to hope that the expertise they acquired boating and fishing in their short lives was enough to keep them alive while apparently lost in the Atlantic.

“This isn’t something that he’s new at,” said Carly Black, the mother of Austin Stephanos, in an interview with television station WPBF. “I think they feel better on the boat than they do on land.”

UPDATE IV: Coast Guard Continues to Search for Missing Boys … Teen’s capsized boat found 70 miles off shore.

In the warm waters off the Florida coast this time of year, the Coast Guard says, someone can survive four, maybe five days.

Florida teens Perry Cohen and Austin Stephanos have been missing since Friday — four days and counting.

“People can survive in the water,” said Capt. Mark Fedor, chief of response for the Coast Guard 7th District. “It’s relatively warm, but, again, it’s a dangerous environment, and there’s only so long you could stay in the water.”

The day-and-night search is focused 60 to 70 miles (97 to 113 kilometers) off Jacksonville, north of where the boys’ capsized boat was found Sunday. Fedor said search conditions were good, but the situation is dire.

The Coast Guard says five cutters, a Navy ship and multiple planes are involved in the search.

UPDATE V: Family calls off private search for missing Florida boys.

The families of two Florida teens who went missing at sea called off their private search Sunday after weeks of trying to find them.

The private efforts began after the Coast Guard called off the search for Perry Cohen and Austin Stephanos, who went missing on July 24 after launching a fishing trip off the Florida coast.

“We love our boys and want them home,” the families said in a joint statement. “Today, our hope becomes our prayer — that one day Perry and Austin will be returned to us. We thank everyone for their dedicated efforts and support.”

After over a week of raising funds and calling on volunteers to help the effort, the family called it off due to no credible evidence found to help find the boys.

Lonzie Barton

Missing: Lonzie Barton

The Jacksonville Sheriff said they could not be more worried about Lonzie Barton, the 21-month-old who disappeared in an alleged car jacking early Friday morning.

Dozens of deputies spent Friday searching the Jacksonville neighborhood where 21-month-old Lonzie Barton was last seen.

“We are looking anywhere that we can look to find this child, the longer this goes on that we cannot find this child, the worse the outcome is going to be,” said Jacksonville Sheriff Chief Tom Hackney.

Hackney said the boy was being watched by his mother’s boyfriend while she was at work.

The boyfriend, William Ebron Junior, told police he put Lonzie and his 5-year-old sister in his car to go pick the mother up from work but had to run up to the apartment.

Ebron said when he went downstairs he saw his car being driven away with Lonzie inside of it.

Lonzie Barton is almost two years in age, has blond hair and blue eyes, and weighs about 20 pounds.  Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at 904-630-0500.

UPDATE I: Police continue search for missing toddler through the night.

It has been one full day since an Amber Alert was issued Friday morning and police began searching for 21-month-old Lonzie Barton.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is searching for the child, who was last seen outside a unit at the Ravenwood apartment complex on South Old Kings Road about 2:20 a.m. Nearly two hours later, police issued an alert for Lonzie, who was believed to be taken during a car theft.

According to Chief Tom Hackney, the mother’s boyfriend, 32-year-old William Ebron, was getting ready to pick up the mother, 25-year-old Lonna Lauramore, from work at Wacko’s Gentlemen’s Club around 2 a.m. He gathered Lonzie and his 5-year-old sister into an orange 1995 Honda Civic.

Friday night police scaled back the search for the evening but as many as 60 detectives are expected to help pick up the search again Saturday morning.

UPDATE II: Sheriff: Missing Jacksonville boy’s caregiver is lying.

Authorities say a caregiver for a missing Jacksonville toddler has been lying to investigators about the child’s disappearance.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office told reporters Saturday that 32-year-old William Ebron had been arrested and charged with two counts of child neglect.

Chief Tom Hackney said investigators believe Ebron was lying about the disappearance of his girlfriend’s son, 21-month-old Lonzie Barton.

The car was recovered 15 to 20 minutes later a short distance from the apartment complex and Lonzie was nowhere to be found.

Court records show Lonzie’s mother and Ebron had a rocky relationship. Just two weeks ago she filed a third domestic violence injunction against Ebron.

Hackney said investigators are still treating the case as a child abduction and don’t know whether Lonzie is alive or dead.

He said Ebron is not being cooperative with investigators.

UPDATE III: Amber Alert canceled, 1-year-old Jacksonville boy presumed dead.

Authorities in north Florida canceled an Amber Alert for a missing 21-month-old boy on Monday and say they are now investigating the disappearance of Lonzie Barton as a homicide.

Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office Chief Tom Hackney released surveillance video during a news conference that shows the car of the mother’s boyfriend, William Ruben Ebron Jr., heading toward where the vehicle was eventually found abandoned and then Ebron running back toward his apartment.

“We’re working this as a murder case,” Hackney said.

Ebron, who lived with Lonzie’s mother, was caring for the boy and his 5-year-old sister when Lonzie disappeared July 24. Ebron initially told police he had left Lonzie in the car with its engine running while Ebron went into the apartment, and the car was gone when he returned, authorities said. The car was quickly recovered, but Lonzie hasn’t been located since.

“His whole explanation is nothing but a load of lies,” Hackney said.
