Leeland Eisenberg, 52 Year Old New Hampshire Man Who Took Hostages at One of Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Offices 6 Years Ago Missing his Manchester Halfway House Sunday

According to the New Hampshire Department of Corrections, Leeland Eisenberg, the 52 year old New Hampshire man who took hostages at one of Hillary Clinton’s campaign offices 6 years ago is missing from his half way house.  Leeland Eisenberg was discovered missing during a head count Sunday afternoon at the Calumet Transitional Housing Unit in Manchester, NH. In 2007, Eisenberg entered Hillary Clinton’s campaign office in Rochester, NH, with road flares strapped to his chest claiming he had a bomb. Eisenberg held several hostages for hours. Hillary Clinton was not present at the time. Eisenberg would have been eligible for parole in August 2013. Now, once he is found, he will be charged with escape, a felony punishable by 3 ½ to 7 years in prison.

Authorities say they are considering it an escape because Eisenberg did not let anyone know he was leaving, as he is required to do. They said he is not considered armed or dangerous.

This is at least the second time Eisenberg has left authorities wondering about his whereabouts.

He was released in 2009 after serving two thirds of a three-year sentence. But in February 2010, he violated his probation by cutting off his GPS tracking bracelet. He was arrested about a day later and eventually received a new sentence of 3 1/2 to 7 years. He is eligible for parole in August.

Eisenberg has a history of mental illness and substance-abuse problems, authorities say.

Florida Authorities Asking Recreational Boaters to Be on the Look Out for Missing/Kidnapped Brothers Chase & Cole Hakken … Seraching for Joshua Michael Hakken’s Newly Purchased Boat “Salty” and a Paw Print in White on both Sides of Hull

Four year old Cole Hakken and his brother two year old Chase Hakken have been missing since Wednesday, April 3, 2013 when they were forcible removed from their grandmothers home and kidnapped by their bio father Joshua Michael Hakken. The grandmother had been given custody one day prior to the abduction after Joshua and Sharyn Hakken had lost their parental right.

Florida authorities are asking recreational boaters to be on the look out for missing Cole and Chase Hakken and for a sailboat that the father Joshua Hakken recently bought. According to accounts, it is a 25 foot sailboat (picture here) with a blue hull with the word “Salty” and a paw print in white on both sides. The Coast Guard is also aiding in the search for the missing brothers and has been broadcasting an Amber Alert.

Florida authorities are asking recreational boaters to keep an eye out for a boat owned by Joshua Michael Hakken that could hold two kidnapped boys.

The message appears to be getting the attention of boaters along the Florida coast.

“I got kids and family myself, so we’ll be definitely looking for them,” Bryan Hinland told WTSP-TV.

Pedro Rodriguez said he was also keeping an eye out. “Every once in a while I looked out to see if I saw (the sailboat) or not,” he said.

Investigators with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office say they believe Hakken shuttled his wife, Sharyn, and the boys onto the 25-foot sailboat around 10 a.m. Wednesday. Investigators are unsure whether Sharyn Hakken is part of the kidnapping plot or a victim.

 Father purchased a sailboat: (more details)

 On Friday, authorities said they’ve obtained information that Joshua Hakken recently purchased a sailboat.

At least one witness said the 25-foot boat was spotted going underneath the John’s Pass Bridge last week.

The sheriff’s office says Hakken has sailed before.

“I don’t want to say extensive, but we do know he has some sailing training and some sailing experience, so he is capable of operating that boat,” said McKinnon.

The boat is described as a 1972 Morgan 25M (25 foot) sailboat, blue bimini top, white mainsail, boat deck and cabin are white, hull is blue with “Salty” and a paw print in white on both sides with a white stripe near water line, bearing Flo.

It is uncertain at this point whether 35 year old Joshua Michael Hakken, 34 year old Sharyn Hakken and the two brothers, Chase & Cole Hakken, are still aboard the sailboat or whether they might be back on land. An Amber Alert for the boys has been issued in Florida, Tennessee, Louisiana and other states.

UPDATE I:  Deputies find GMC pickup truck used in kidnapping of Tampa kids.

Hillsborough County deputies have confirmed that a black truck allegedly used in the abduction of two brothers has been located in Madeira Beach.

The 2006 GMC pickup truck was located abandoned in the John’s Pass Parking Garage located at 12901 Gulf Blvd.

HCSO detectives and crime scene technicians are processing the vehicle.

Pinellas County deputies initially responded after someone reported seeing a vehicle that matched a description on Amber Alerts issued across the Southeast.  Four states issued the alerts including Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee.

Chase and Cole Hakken were still wearing their pajamas when deputies say their own parents took them by force from a Lake Magdalene home.

UPDATE II: Cole Hakken, Chase Hakken may be in Tennessee

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has issued a statewide AMBER Alert for two Florida brothers who may be in eastern Tennessee with their non-custodial parents.

Cole Hakken, 4, and Chase Hakken, 2, were kidnapped from their grandmother’s home in Tampa on April 3. The grandmother has custody of the brothers.

The vehicle may have been spotted in the area of Highway 30 and Highway 411 in Etowah, Tennessee Wednesday around 8 p.m.

UPDATE III: AMBER alert family seen headed onto Gulf of Mexico.

Hillsborough deputies say the father who abducted his two non-custodial children in Tampa was last seen taking his family into the Gulf of Mexico aboard a sailboat.

The information comes shortly after Joshua Hakken’s pickup truck was discovered in a Madeira Beach parking garage. Investigators believe Hakken took his 4-year-old Cole and 2-year-old Chase onto a 25-foot sailboat, hours after abducting them from their grandmother’s home early on Wednesday morning.

The Sheriff’s Office says it is not clear what direction the boat went after leaving the Johns Pass area, nor do they know if the boat was still on the water during Thursday’s strong storms.

Body of Missing Student Pilot who Fell from Small Plane is Found … Victim Fell 2,500 Feet to His Death During the Flight on Friday in Tennessee

Let this be a lesson whether you are driving a car or a plane … always where your seatbelt.

The body of the unidentified student pilot who fell to their death from a small plane on Friday has been found. According to accounts, the small two-seater training plane, Zodiac 601 experimental aircraft, went into a nose dive when the canopy came off. The unidentified victim was not wearing his seatbelt and fell 2500 feet to his death. Good grief. The single-engine aircraft left Collegedale Municipal Airport just outside Chattanooga, TN between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Friday. The flight path took them over southern Bradley County, a rural area with many farms and few communities. The instructor, who also was not identified, managed to land the plane at the airport while emergency crews scoured the countryside around East Brainerd, TN.

Not actual plane … Zodiac 601 similar to the above 

Police on Saturday recovered the body of a student pilot who was not wearing a seat belt during a training flight and tumbled from his small two-seater plane when it went into a nose dive over rural Tennessee.

Reuters reported that the body was found in a tree-line not far from a roadway.

The victim, who has not been identified, fell 2,500 feet to his death during the flight on Friday, WRCB-TV reported.

“The people inside the plane were not wearing seat belts,” Bradley County interim fire chief Troy Spence told WRCB-TV. “So when they lost control of the plane, in an attempt to regain control of the plane, the passenger was ejected.”

36 Year Old Cecilia Zamora Missing Since February 16, 2013 in San Bruno, CA

36 year old Cecilia Zamora has been reported missing on February 16, 2013 in San Buno, CA. She was last heard from on February 12. Police also learned Zamora may have been the victim of an assault while in San Bruno and believe that she has been a victim of foul play. Hmm, so does this mean that the situation as to why she is missing is one of domestic assault? Otherwise, why would a prior assault have any thing to do with her missing or the police releasing an update that she may have been the victim of foul play? Far too many questions still need to be answered and too few clues.

Cecilia Zamora, 36, who was reported missing on Feb. 15, may be the victim of foul play, according to San Bruno police.

Her family hasn’t heard from her since Feb. 12. Police said she may have been a victim in a previous assault as well.

Zamora is about 5-foot-2 and weighs 125 pounds. She has brown eyes and dyed purple hair.

If anyone has any information as to the whereabouts of  Cecilia Zamora , please call San Bruno police at (650) 616-7100, or e-mail sbpdtipline@sanbruno.ca.gov.
