A family member needed the police because she was being threatened over the phone and was in fear for her life after waiting for 15 or 20 minutes for them to come (she lives a mile from the police station) she called me and my husband and we went and picked her up to take her to the police station..a 1/4 mile from her house sat a officer in his car talking on a cell phone..he was right there and could practically see her houe from where he was sitting..she complained to the Chief but I don't know if anything was done about it.....And as far as the other misssing child we had last year goes..kudos for you for getting involved and helping out if you did that but I'm just going by what I have read and heard from his grandparents

this child has been missing for 15 days, what are the police and sheriff offices in hazlehurst and jeff-davis county doing, I readed another story about a 15 year boy that ran away and he was found dead is this what they do they wait untit the child is found dead, Why will they not ask for help from other agency if this to much for them. This child needs to be found and brought home to her family and the scum that has her loced up for life so he can not hurt another family, Get with it people in georgia if this was your child you would be raising hell to find her or him.

I am the mother of the 15 yr old that was missing for 13 days and was killed by my x...good luck getting any help in this county. I could go on and on about the wrongfull treatment we recieved in our despair, wearing ourselves out looking for my baby because the law ( not all of them)literaly sat on there asses and would not allow GBI in to help us find Chandler. Whoever this child is that is missing I am praying for her and the family. I know exactly how they feel. But let me Thank the few cops and the many many civilians that helped my family and me through that awfull expreince that will haunt us the rest of our lives. To the mother of the missing child, I know what you are going through and I have been praying for you ever since I heard about your child missing. If you need anything at all, even if its just to hear I know how you feel and actualy mean it, please don't hesitate to contact me. [email protected] thats my email God bless you and your baby.

I don't understand why this child missing is not being taking more serious. Signs all over the county and the city vote for so and so. What about signs being put out to help find this missing child? Its sad to think that everyone in the community is more worried about an election than a child missing. I hope that WTOC isn't the only news channel that has been contacted. This child could be anywhere, if you haven't try all the news channels in Georgia. You got Walb out of Albany, Fox out of Macon and Atlanta. Maybe you have already contacted these, if so contact some in the surrounding states. This is just my thoughts if all these have been contacted I'm sorry for mentioning them. It just really upsets me that the only time I see anything about this child missing is when I come to topix. I hope and pray that she is returned to her mother safe. May the LORD be with her mother and family until she found and home safe.

meant to say,"other than from law enforcement"-but I did'nt help for personal accolades.I did so because it was the right thing to do.And I urge anyone who can help with this case to please do so!

We personaly asked that the civilians that helped look for Chandler be thanked in the paper and they only thanked the law enforcement. I'm sorry that you didn't recieve any kind of gratitude.I appreciate anything and everything you did to help Chandler and our family.

i'm sorry,i did not mean to imply that i did not recieve any graditude-i did.besides the "certificate of appreciation" and letter of gaditude,i recived from law enforcement-i felt some personal satisfaction knowing that i did try to help.i am only sorry it was too little and too late.while no one can really say that they 'know how you feel',i too have suffered loss and can easily see how something could get overlooked in such times.i also understand that it is only natural to think more could have and should have been done-and you may well be right.but i do believe more may have been done than you realize and i'll explain when i get the chance.most of all,i want to apoligize for those reprehensible individuals who posted those terrible things on this forum while your son was missing.i went back,tried to read them and almost got sick.perhaps there is a lesson here for the "whole community".again i am so sorry for your loss and pray justice will be done.

i'm sorry, the comments on the post above should have been attributed to me-not I RONNY.you see, i use a number of monikers simply bacause i happen to believe it is the 'message' as opposed to the 'messenger' that is more important.others have the right to disagree and i repect their opinion.

She's home as most know but I can't believe anyone thinks he's looking for DNA?!? She's not his nor was it implied she was ever! He did touch her, took her & went on run while abusing her & manipulating her mind into thinking she cared for him. Keep in mind this jackass was her STEPDAD at a point. Gross
