42 year old Jason Gregory Rappe of Olympia, WA has gone missing aboard the Holland America Cruise Ship Eurodam. It is believed that Rappe went overboard. He was reported missing by his wife Thursday. The Eurodam was traveling from St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands to the Bahamas when Rappe was reported missing. A search has begun for missing Jason Gregory Rappe. The Coast Guard activated a helicopter crew based out of the Air Station Borinquen on Puerto Rico and diverted the cutters Nantucket, a 110-foot patrol boat based in San Juan, and Decisive, a 210-foot cutter based in Pascagoula, MS, to search for Rappe.
The man, identified as 42-year-old Jason Gregory Rappe of Olympia, Washington, was reported missing Thursday by his wife from the Holland America cruise ship Eurodam. A baseball cap belonging to the passenger was found on one of the decks and he is believed to have gone overboard.
“At this point, we are actively searching,” Castrodad told The Associated Press. “We are hoping to find a survivor.”
The search continued Thursday night for a cruise ship passenger who was reported missing early Thursday morning, less than a day after his ship departed from a port call to St. Thomas.
Coast Guard search and rescue crews were searching for the passenger, a 42-year-old man from Washington, who reportedly disappeared from the Holland America Line cruise ship Eurodam early Thursday morning while the vessel was traveling from St. Thomas to the Bahamas, according to a press release from Coast Guard spokesman Ricardo Castrodad.
Castrodad said Thursday evening that the passenger had not been sighted and a search was ongoing.
11 Year Old Leukemia Patient Emily Missing from Cancer Ward … Taken From Hospital by Mother in Arizona … Could be Headed to Mexico
Emily, an 11 year old Hispanic leukemia patient is missing from a cancer ward at the Phoenix Children’s Hospital in Phoenix, AZ. Emily was brought to the hospital about a month ago by her parents to receive treatment for leukemia. She was scheduled to be released from the hospital the following day; however, her mother for unknown reasons removed her from the hospital early before Emily’s treatment was finished. Hospital surveillance video captured the mother taking of her daughter with an IV still attached. Emily’s mother is 35 years old, Hispanic, and goes by the name Norma. Her father is 46 years old, Hispanic, and goes by the name Luis.

Video shows the mother walking Emily from her room with an IV still attached. They’re then seen heading to the elevators and eventually a restroom, where her mother changed her clothes and removed the IV from a chest catheter placed into her heart, before walking her out of the hospital.
“If she does not have this catheter sealed correctly by medical staff, we understand it’s highly likely she could obtain an infection and ultimately die within a couple of days,” said Sgt. Steve Martos of Phoenix police.
Police say detectives have been working feverishly for the past two days, but are now turning to the public for help. An earlier infection caused Emily to lose an arm; police say now they’re worried about another infection with potentially grave consequences.
Authorities fear that Emily’s life could be in jeopardy due to her medical condition and the family could be headed to Mexico. Emily, had her arm previously amputated because of an infection and a chest catheter inserted into her heart.
Police believe the family left the hospital in a 1998 Ford mini-van, last seen with AZ license plate AVY3157. However, detectives say that license plate number is not registered to the van, so it’s possible it’s been removed.
Detectives believe the family has ties to California and Mexico. They put out alerts to agencies in California, as well as other hospitals in the area.
“Our concern right now is for that catheter to be medically removed. We understand that there is the possibility that the catheter could get an infection and thereby result in the death of this child really in the matter of days,” Sgt. Steve Martos told KNXV TV station Thursday night.
Authorities said that the mother had removed an IV drip from the catheter, changed Emily’s clothes and then walked the 11-year-old patient out of her ward at the hospital.

Chester Duane Price Arrested for Murder of Missing Andrea Gail Parsons Who Went Missing in Florida on July 11, 1993
After almost 20 years there is a major break in the case of missing Andrea Gail Parsons … So much for no body, no crime!
42 year old Chester Duane Price has been arrested and charged with murder of Andrea Gail Parsons. Andrea Gail Parsons went missing and was last seen on July 11, 1993 in Port Salerno, FL. She was 10 years old at the time. Andrea Gail Parsons was last seen at approximately 6 pm as she purchased candy and soda at a grocery store when she waved to a local couple as they drove by on an area street and honked. Chester Duane Price was charged with first-degree murder and kidnapping of a child under the age of 13, after he was indicted by a grand jury. According to the sheriff’s department new release, the police investigation concluded that Chester Duane Price abducted and killed Andrea Gail Parsons. The girls body has not been recovered. Price is being held at the Martin County Jail without bond and is scheduled to make his first court appearance via video link at 10:30 am Friday in front of Judge Darren Steele .
Price was acquainted with Andrea at the time of her disappearance, and also knew another man police once eyed as a potential suspect, officials told ABC News affiliate WPBF in West Palm Beach, Fla.
“The investigation has concluded that Price abducted and killed Andrea Gail Parsons,” read a sheriff’s department news release. “Tragically, at this time, her body has not been recovered.”
The sheriff’s department declined to specify what evidence led to Price’s arrest for the crime after 19 years or to provide details to ABCNews.com beyond the prepared news release.
Chester Duane Price Arrested for Murder of Andrea Gail Parsons
Price was most recently living in Haleyville, Ala., and has an extensive criminal history with arrests dating back to 1991, the sheriff’s office said. He voluntarily returned to the area to give testimony to a grand jury, sheriff’s spokeswoman Rhonda Irons said. He was arrested after the grand jury decided to indict him.
At a news conference Thursday, retiring Martin County Sheriff Robert Crowder said that a team of detectives was assigned last year to conduct a further review of evidence collected in the case.
“The resolve to find Andrea and get answers surrounding the circumstances of her disappearance has never wavered,” he said.

13 year old Dylan Redwine has been missing since Monday, November 11, 2012 in Vallecito, CO. Dylan was last seen at his father’s home in the 2300 block of La Plata County Road 500, which is north of Vallecito Lake near Bayfield. Dylan lives with his mother in Colorado Springs, CO but was staying with his father for the Thanksgiving holiday. His father, Mark Redwine, went to run an errand at 7:30 a.m. Monday; however, when he returned at 11:30 am Dylan was gone. Dylan was reported missing by his father the same day. Elaine Redwine, the mother of missing Dylan Redwine insists that someone knws where her missing son is and that “he did not go off on his own”.
“He didn’t go on his own,” Elaine Redwine said of her son, Dylan, who was visiting his father, Mark Redwine, during Thanksgiving break.
The couple are divorced and she lives in Colorado Springs.
“Dylan wouldn’t have left willingly,” Redwine said during an interview at the home of a friend Friday afternoon. “If there was any way to communicate he would have called.”
The missing boy is 5 feet tall, 105 pounds, with blond hair, blue eyes and fair complexion. He was last seen wearing a blue-and-white Duke Blue Devils baseball cap, black Nike T-shirt and black Jordan tennis shoes. “Dylan wouldn’t have left willingly,” Elaine Redwine said Friday during an interview at the home of a friend. “If there was any way to communicate he would have called.” Dylan was picked up Sunday by his father at Durango-La Plata County Airport, his mother said Friday. Dylan announced his arrival in a text message and ended it with the emoticon that is interpreted as a scowl, she said.
This case has the appearance that Dylan Redwine might have initially run away from his father’s home as all signs indicate that Dylan did not want to be there. His visit was a part of a court-ordered Thanksgiving holiday visitation. Dylan, his mother Elaine and his brother recently moved to Colorado Springs, CO following his parents divorce. However, what happened after that might be something totally different. A Vallecito resident had seen Dylan walking with another boy Monday afternoon, but did not know that Dylan was considered missing at the time.
A nearby resident who knows Dylan reportedly saw him walking with another young boy along La Plata County Road 501 in Vallecito Monday afternoon, but the resident didn’t know Dylan was missing until Tuesday.
“We have to consider everything from foul play to a runaway,” said La Plata Sheriff’s spokesman Dan Bender
Anyone with information about Dylan should contact La Plata County Sheriff’s Office investigators Dan Patterson (970-382-7015) or Tom Cowing (970-382-7045).
Volunteers have been making door-to-door contacts to spread the word about Dylan, and searching areas near where he was last seen. Five investigators from La Plata Sheriff’s Office are assigned to the case. Deputies and officers from other law enforcement agencies respond to any report of a young person resembling Dylan. On Friday, the sheriff’s office released new details about what clothes Redwine may have been wearing when he disappeared. The La Plata County Sheriff says he may have been wearing a blue and white Duke Blue Devils baseball cap, a black Nike t-shirt, black basketball shorts and black Jordan shoes. “We have not ruled out any possibility” said Dan Bender, Public Information Officer for La Plata Sheriff’s Office.

Arnold barricaded himself inside their Wesley Chapel home on the night of May 6, 2012 with his 5 year old daughter. . SWAT was able to rescue the little girl, but Timothy Arnold killed himself with a self-inflicted gun shot. Authorities are still trying to determine Linda Losacano;s cause of death.
Despite the discovery, Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said the case is far from closed.
“We can confirm that we have her,” he said. “She’ll be given a proper burial, but at the same time we don’t know how she died.”
Investigators said they may know who killed her. Losacano’s long-term boyfriend, Timothy Arnold, is still their lead suspect. Arnold committed suicide the day Losacano’s family reported her missing.
Arnold barricaded himself inside their Wesley Chapel home on the night of May 6 along with the couple’s 5-year-old daughter. A SWAT team was able to get the girl out, but a few hours later, they found Arnold dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside the home.
That day, investigators combed the property in search for evidence that might lead them to Losacano.
