11 Year Old Nautaysha Tarver Missing Since 4/11/13 in Detroit, Michigan (Update: Found Safe)

11 year old Nautaysha Tarver has been missing since Thursday afternoon, April 11, 2013 in Detroit. MI. According to the Detroit Free Press, Nautaysha Tarver was last seen by her younger brother around 3 p.m. on Thursday as she walked on Lappin and Crusade.  Tarver told her brother  that she was going back to school, in the 15600 block of E. Seven Mile for detention. However, when the mother arrived at the school at 4:30 pm to pick her daughter up, she was not there. One needs to first ask the question of the school whether missing Nautaysha Tarver was ever at the school serving detention? It does seem a bit odd for someone to leave school and then return for detention. Normally one would serve the detention directly after school ends.  And if so, did they actually allow her to leave by herself or is it the school’s policy to let students just leave on their own without being picked up by an adult on record with the school?

Tarver is 4’-ll.” She weighs 110-115 pounds and has a medium brown complexion, medium length black hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a black knitted hat, green shirt, tan pants, a rust-colored, waist-length jacket and turquoise, white and purple athletic shoes, police said. She is emotionally impaired and takes medication.

If anyone has any information regarding missing Nautaysha Tarver, please call Detroit Police Department’s Criminal Investigations at 313-596-1340

UPDATE I:  Nautaysha Tarver found safe at friends house.

TCNJ Student Paige Aiello Missing in New Jersey Since 4/9/13, Update: Aiello’s Purse, Wallet & Phone Found on the George Washington Bridge

New clues found in the disappearance of 22 year old missing Paige Aiello, her purse, wallet and phone were found on the George Washington Bridge. Police are searching the waters near the GW.

22 year old TCNJ college student Paige Aiello has been missing since Tuesday, April 9, 2013 in New Jersey. The Hillsboro, NJ resident, Paige Aiello has an  on-campus apartment at TCNJ; however, according to family members has been staying at home recently. Her father drove her to class Tuesday morning and also drove her home around 1 PM. This was the last time she has been seen. When her mother returned home at 2:45 PM, Paige was gone and had taken her mother’s 2006 grey Audi A4 without permission, according to the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office. The family reported her missing to Hillsborough police at 7:45 PM. The Audi A4 was found about 10: PM on Wednesday by the New Brunswick Police Department in the Gateway parking garage located on Somerset Street in New Brunswick, NJ. Paige Aiello was reported missing on Wednesday. At this time the police are saying they do not suspect foul play.


Now new and disturbing clues have been discovered in the disappearance of TCNJ student Paige Aiello. Her purse, including her car keys, wallet and cell phone were found on the south walkway of the upper level of the George Washington Bridge. This prompted police to search the waters of the Hudson River near the GW. So far they have found nothing. Could stress have lead to the unthinkable? Her sister has stated that “she’s [Paige] a perfectionist, she’s a very driven kid. The stress of classes and a recent breakdown had led Paige Aiello to spend more time at home, living there instead of her on-campus apartment.”

Paige Aiello’s purse containing her car keys and mobile phone were found on the south walkway of the upper level of the George Washington Bridge by a passer-by at 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, the prosecutor’s office said.

The Good Samaritan who found the purse called the Aiellos and a search was launched in the Hudson River near the bridge, prosecutors said. Port Authority Police Department was assisted in the search by Harbor Patrol, the U.S. Coast Guard, New York Police Department Patrol and Aviation Units, prosecutors said.

A Port Authority of NY/NJ spokesman said nothing was found in the water. An NYPD spokesman said today he did not believe the Harbor Patrol has returned to the area to resume the search.



Anyone with information on her disappearance is asked to call the Hillsborough Township Police Department at (908) 369-4323, the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office at (908) 575-3300, Somerset County Crime Stoppers’ Tip Line at (888) 577-TIPS(8477) or online at www.888577tips.org or www.scpo.net and click on either “Crime Stoppers” or “TIPS HOTLINE”.

UPDATE I: Police suspect foul play after remains of missing Ohio woman found in Indiana.

It’s basically like a brand new investigation,” said Indiana State Police Sgt. Noel Houze.

Indiana police investigators took “numerous items” from the site where Katelyn Markham’s remains were found for study and possible testing, Houze said. He said the creek area where the remains were found is used by some as a dumping ground, so it’s too soon to say whether any of the items are significant to the investigation.

“They collected a lot of stuff,” he said, declining to describe the items but adding that they could turn out to be trash.

Cuba Will Turn Over to the United States Authorities Missing Florida Family, Including Abducted Brothers Chase & Cole Hakken

You just can’t make this stuff up. Who would have thought that the missing persons case of Chase and Cole Hakken would wind up in Cuba and be a reverse Elián González story? Although, Joshua Hakken may have wanted to have chose another country that did not have an extradition treaty with the US.

Late Tuesday afternoon,  Cuba said that it would return the Florida couple and the kidnapped bothers, 2 year old Chase and 4 year old Cole Hakken to the United States.  Joshua Michael Hakken and his wife Sharyn Hakken, who had their parental rights taken away from them, abducted their two sons from their grandmother and sailed to Havana, Cuba aboard  Joshua Hakken’s new purchased 1972 Morgan, 25 foot sailboat “Salty”.  The boat, named “Salty” was spotted at the Hemingway Marina in Havana. No one knew initially what the Cuban government would do with regards to the couple and the kidnapped brothers.  Cuba and the US are hardly pals and Cuba does not have an extradition treaty with the United States. Nor is Cuba a signatory of the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. Which basically means that is was solely up to Cuba to do the right thing. Who ever thought that when Chase & Cole Hakken first went missing that this would turn into a modern day reverse Elián González story?

Yahoo News reports, The foreign ministry announced the decision in a terse statement saying Joshua Michael Hakken, a fugitive from U.S. justice, would be handed over with wife Sharyn and their children.

The family was located by a CNN reporter Tuesday when he ran into the father, Josh Hakken, Tuesday on a boat named Salty at a Havana marina. Cuban security asked CNN to leave the scene when the family was first spotted.

Foreign Ministry official Johana Tablada told The Associated Press in a written statement Tuesday that Cuba had informed U.S. authorities of the country’s decision to turn over Joshua Michael Hakken, his wife Sharyn and their two young boys. She did not say when the handover would occur.

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.
