In most cases if victims are not found within 24 hours, I am sorry but the police and everyone need too not give the family false hope, and im sorry for that. Chances are they are dead or sold into human trafficking. Just tell the truth and let the family move on and do not give them false hope. This is truly a sad fact .. God be with them...

I do not agree wih Ms Intelligence. There is hope. Lots of cjhildren are found and returned after months and even years have passed. Maybe whoever has them will drop them off in the middle of the night and then haul tail. Could happen.People all over the country pray for these little girls to be found, and it ain't over til it's over.

Miss Intelligence is is not wrong in all she says. Many kidnapped children are never seen again or found dead within 24 hours. Some days, weeks or months later. Many have been brought back alive, some safe, some not so safe. Family does play a part in many kidnappings and this family has all the markings of suspicion. The Meth drugs run deep in this family, not just Misty and Dan. If Feds think the kids are alive, itís not because a stranger has them, it points to family. If Feds have evidence that leads them to this belief, itís because some in the family or business of drugs have talked, but not quite enough. This case is most bizarre in that, Iíve never read about a family with a missing child having so many drug addicted relatives, past and present, and with prison records. It is usually the perpetrators who have these added attractions to their glory. I donít know how law enforcement has had time as yet to check them all out thoroughly. Lyric is 10 years old and it would not surprise me at all if she is has been using drugs or has been a very rebellious preteen living in the lifestyle of this family. Hope is something a parent is naturally going to have if a child goes missing, right up to the time the child is found dead or alive. One thing is for sure in this family. If some are involved, their major hope and prayer is to not get caught.

I agree with 99% of what you say, but there are a lot of things that can happen. Nobody except the perpetrators know, and someone somewhere will talk. A secret is only a secret until a second person knows. As for sick, dysfunctional families, read about Brittany Woods, missing, Tillmans corner, Alabama, Mobile area. Drugs have been the ruination of the american family. But even without drugs, a persons character is what it is.

I read this case last week. Another who done it with many suspects. Did you see the map that a Private Eye put on the website that has 10 pictures of missing/murdered young women, small petite blonds, age range, weight about the same. In the middle of the map there is picture of a semi. His analysis is connection to interstates and similar descriptions, where all the girls have gone missing across several states. The family history is disgusting. I would hope she would not leave her daughter there in the midst of it. She will soon be missing 3 months with little hope of her being alive. I do think there is a connection between the uncles aledged suicide and Brittney missing. Heís dead before Brittney is reported missing. Sheís going to meet uncle.(according to friend) Someone else, say a jealous person who does not like the relationship between uncle and Brittney (based on all the talk about inside sex in the family) might be responsible for the death of both. Many murders are seen as suicides in my opinion. Just like Lyric and Elizabeth, so many ways to go in finding who snatched them with no real evidence, just suppositions.

When I think more on Brittany Woods(Mobile), I wonder if maybe she may have shot the uncle(there was still a bullet in the gun when found) and ran away in fear of a murder charge. Who knows? The whole family is full of pedophiles, it's disgusting. At her age she had to have known something, she was extremely close to uncles and brother. LE says she has no connection to the sex abuse cases. Will we ever know?
