A friend of mine who lives in Evansdale close by the grand mothers house said he and his wife would see those two girls walking the streets all the time at different hours of the day and night.
I think they are some where else and the bicycle thing is something that is planted to throw people off.
I think they ran away and there are some older boys involved.

No, I don't think that is the case here. I agree the bicycle thing is staged. I don't know what to think anymore, I have read the articles, listened to videos...the family is too calm, I don't get it. I would be hysterical and no way looking pretty for the cameras. I don't think they ran away, too young...I don't think older boys involved either..I hope they found the two guys fishing at that lake...How can you take two little girls at the same time without someone seeing them?
The girls daddy has a criminal record that is very long...what if it is drug related? He is in trouble for drugs and meth lab, perhaps his dealer is taking his revenge?

Illegal aliens have raped those little girls .
And then either killed them or sold them .
And it is Barry Soetoro' fault for allowing these illegal aliens to run through our country by the millions committing crimes against the American people !
This is why all illegal aliens should be EXECUTED !
And Barry should be brought up on charges of treason and then executed for perpetrating these heinous crimes against the American people .

Keep the pressure on the parents, I believe it is all going to come out soon enough. An abduction like this is few and far between (done by a stranger that is). But, by a family member? oh yes, I think you will find them guilty when all this comes out..

Where is the pain and suffering that their little girls are missing? The easy smiles from a mom, the strange sentences from both, their composure. I don't see any anguish. Are they heavily sedated? It is my feeling that these parents need to be watched carefully as something may be amiss with those two. Iím not saying that either one or both have done something to these children but they do seem to be acting very strangely, particularly by bringing God into it in the manner which they did as if they can speak for God. Polygraph went "fine" one of the mothers says twice in the CNN interview. She was smiling through the whole interview, with two missing children in the family.

I don't think the mom was ever close to the girls to begin with. She appears to be a person who is wrapped up in herself. Sometimes people who have been long term narcotic users don't feel things the same way normal people do.
I think the girls are upset about something that has happened since their mother came home or are disappointed about something not being the way they thought it would be. One of the articles stated there had been problems just the week before.
These little girls coming from their background and enviorment are street smart, they are not going to get into a car with anyone they don't know or even get close to someone like that. I believe they are hiding or are being hid by a person of concern or a family member.

I think you have a good theory guy, The criminal past of Misty and Dan speak clearly that they had little involvement in raising Lyric in a healthy environment. Who did? Grandmother? I know g/m does not watch as ďwatchĒ is defined by most. I see now why no emotion is shown by either. I can only hope that someone who cares did grab Lyric. What about Elizabeth? Does her mom and dadís past read anything like that of Lyricís? This family better get ready for a lot of negative feedback because it is coming. A family member may not be involved, while there is certainly enough sordid background there to keep going in that direction. I wonder if these parentís believe they have been good parentís. The solid alibiís Iím hearing donít mean very much when you have history like this to go thru. I think it would be a difficult thing to get Misty and Dan to tell all to LE that might be factors to solving the case. The criminal past of both is only out because it is public knowledge. They didnít bring out up front.

We haven't heard much at all from Elizabeth's parents. Wonder how they are taking this? What are their ideas? Funny that only Misty and Dan are in the lime light and steady telling everyone what they think has occurred! I have read article after article and these two are something else. No attachment to their own daughter at all. They are two selfish individuals that probably don't really care if that child ever comes back. After all, the child support payment will cease. They didn't even live together, had a restraining order to keep them apart because of physical abuse...go figure. I am pretty sure 99.8% that they are guilty of something.

I hesitated saying what you did, while I sure thought it. I havenít seen anything in Misty or Dan that shows they are shocked, torn apart or even sad that Lyric is missing. Iíve shown more sadness for Lyric than they have. I can tell Misty likes being in front of the camera. Heather Collins is the mom of Elizabeth Collins, the 8 year old who says Elizabeth lives by strict rules. Heather has only interviewed on the phone to my knowledge. She has forgiven the abductor and God has too. She doesnít want to know who it is. Only wants her daughter back. I am not saying any of the parents had anything to do with the missing girls, while they would all stay at the top of the list until the mystery is solved.

No real new news today other than the FBI is here and ready to tackle that lake. I don't believe those girls are in that lake. The family of those girls don't believe the girls are in that lake. They are positive they were abducted, I wonder how they know that? All of them know the same thing? Not one of them think just maybe the girls are in that lake? Definitely a lot of unanswered questions, and puzzle pieces missing. Not looking so good for Dan Morrissey and his camera happy "wife"..they seem like the perfect couple until you dig into their history. Timeline is way off, but I don't have answers there either. Missing links for sure. God has this and more than likely he has those girls too. My heart breaks for those little girls, I bet they were frightened...I agree with the staged setting because an abduction on the path would mean the bikes were on the trail in the way. The biker says he swerved to miss them..hmmm, that would mean they were laying on the trail. But they were found leaned against the fence. Did the biker move them? Sorry, rambling
