My heart is breaking o this little girlÂ’s family. I pray that they find her safe. I am very disappointed in KAIT for not running with this story sooner. It may have made all the difference in finding her. She has not been seen since Saturday night. A Morgan alert should have been issued right away. What the worst that could have happened if it was a false alarm and she was safe and sound? Valuable time has passed; we have a strong community here in Lawrence County. Many people would have been keeping an eye out for her.To Sidney's Family: you are in my prayers and I hope Sidney is brought home safe and sound.
The sole authority for issuing an Amber Alert is the police agency handling the case. KAIT nor any other media has that authority.

Well surely if he called and said that about the cabin the police would hifh tell it that way and search there. He is guilty of something or he wouldnt have killed himself.

A family member supposedly made a statement posted earlier today on a Facebook with the info about the alcohol and pills. Then someone commented on KAITs fb post about the sex offender part.....
I was merely repeating the info I had read and the questions I had in regards.

The sole authority for issuing an amber alert in arkansas is the arkansas state police! A local agency can make their request to them!

Her step father was found dead just outside of Walnut Ridge (her hometown) in the vehicle that was reported. Still no sign of Sidney. The police have canines on the scene right now, trying to find her.
I have been told that the stepdad called the police before he killed himself & said that he has her in a cabin in Imboden, Arkansas? Has anyone heard any about this?
he did not have a cell phone so i dont think he could have called

I did not mean for my post to sound like I was implying that Kait should have issued an Amber Alert. I was stating that one should have been issued shortly after she disappeared. Whoever is responsible for the Amber Alert should have realized time is an important factor in these cases. Kait did not need an Amber Alert to post information for the public. They could have put something on Facebook and twitter sooner and more often.

If you read my post you will see, I never said KAIT should have issued an Amber Alert.

I hope and pray that they find this young lady and she is fine. At least theres one sick person off the face of the earth. I do agree the news will report abuse to a dog before something like this. God be with the family, you are all in my families prayers. Just keep praying!

This was treated as a minimal missing teen. The police dictate by their request how serious it is. THEY did not take this serious until much later. KAIT or any other media would have gone balls to the wall if the police had asked them to. They didn't ask. The police send 3,4,5 missing teens every week. It's a teen didn't come home and now they're missing thing. Happens many times every week right here in Northeast Arkansas. If the police had thought this was as serious as it has turned out to be, they would have/should have said so. They didn't. Until the body was found today.

RE: Neighbor's post
The story HAS BEEN all over Facebook since Sunday. Please don't criticize if you do NOT have the facts. MANY, myself included, posted every single update ASAP. Please pray for this young teen and her family.

FIRST;
Direct from the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office– Authorities are working on an active crime scene concerning John Cornell. Civilians are NOT to come to the area of the crime scene for any reason. Professionals and law enforcement are conducting a search for the missing girl, Sidney Randall, and do not need help in the search at this time. Deputies are closing Lawrence Rd. 438.

So Kait8 just said they've called off the search for tonight....REALLY??!! It's only 9:30!! What the hell is wrong with the police around here?? First they wait more than 48 hours to issue an Amber Alert, now they're giving up so early in the night?? THIS IS SHAMEFULL,THEY TELL THE PUBLIC TO STAY AWAY THEN THEY PACK IT UP AND GO HOME. THE TEMPS ARE GOING DOWN AROUND FREEZING TONIGHT, EVERY SECOND COUNTS EVEN IF THERE IS ONLY A 1% CHANCE OF HER BEING STILL ALIVE !!!

Tell me when this thread is updated:
