    It happens. Most child abduction or disappearances do involve family members so I understand why that's the first place people's minds go but stranger abductions do happen.

    I think people like to believe it couldn't happen to their family and of course they'd hear someone in their home but that's just not always true.

    It was only speculation on my part that they don't have a land line. The article indicated they thought the 3 cell phones were taken to delay a call to police and that doesn't make sense if they do have a land line but please don't take that as fact - I don't know any better than any one else if they do or don't.

    The parents were on GMA this morning. Apparently, this was the ONLY time the mother left the front door unlocked and the ONLY time the father worked over night. And the police apparently do think the parents are involved. After watching the interview, I have to agree that something just isn't right here. I don't think they hurt the baby, (hopefully) but I do think they're involved and wanting publicity and money. I just hope that's all they're doing.

    I have been praying that they find the baby alive. I don't want to compare this case to the many others over the years that did not turn out well for the missing child but ......still praying for a happy ending.

    Ooh, that's new. Everything I've read said the police don't think that.

    I hope they find the baby, healthy and sound. How very sad.

    I don't know what to think. Something is not right. I fear that the parents are involved and if so, I doubt that baby is ever found alive.

    The words are eerily similar to other cases where the parent has been found responsible. Caylee anyone?

    All it takes is one time, if indeed it is an "outside" job...

    And I agree with Badams about the cell phones. I am "wireless" myself (no landline), and that cell phone is always with me when I leave the house and go somewhere, whether it's to work, the market, or to a contra dance in Lenox, MA which is an hour's drive from where I live. It is also in my saddle bag when I go bicycling (and yes I have had to use it!). That's the real purpose of a cell phone, IMO: so you always have a way to contact someone in the event of an emergency.

    I don't always carry my cell phone. Most of the time but not always.

    I forget my cell phone all the time at home, especially if it's on the charger.

    My BIL's job doesn't allow cell phones, so he usually leaves it in his glove box, but he's also left it at home. Most notably during the VA earthquake that he never felt. His DD was freaking out because "Dad's not answering his cell phone!" He never answers it - voice mail and patience is the only way you can get hold of him on his cell phone during business hours.

    If I worked the overnight shift I would absolutely always have my phone with me. Even if I had to leave it In the car. Overnight I always make sure there is a phone near enough to me to hear it or find it in case of an emergency. All I have is a cell, so it charges as I sleep...under my pillows. But that's just me.

    You'd be surprised. My roommate has slept through a fire alarm so I wouldn't be surprised if she slept straight through someone breaking into the house.

    (my bold) Yes, that's you (and apparently Karina). It says nothing about what these parents do. The fact that I (and FigureSpins) don't also does nothing to inform about this particular instance.

    Mother flunked lie detector test article. Something is very fishy.

    But the coincidence of the first time for ...well everything ... does come across as odd.

    Well, I don't live in the countryside and I make sure people know where I am going when I go out. If I need to make a call while I'm out, I borrow a phone. If DH needs to get me at the rink/studio/, they have phones at the front desk and can page me or take a message. I'm never out of touch for more than an hour, so it's okay.

    The fact that the phones were all together in the kitchen and they were stolen is ominous, but not that the DH left his at home.

    Although, I've had a bad feeling about this story from the start...

    There's a photo of the little girl standing at a front door, so she might be able to walk, but she's too short to reach the doorknob/handle on her own. Locked or unlocked front door, some adult took that baby.

    The Dad's alibi is that he was at work, leaving the Mom as the prime suspect since she didn't have an alibi. Wonder if something happened before the guy went to work and they planned a cover up this way, not realizing the wife would be the fall guy?

    As soon as I heard about this case, I thought, "the mom killed the baby and disposed of the body." Would love to be wrong, of course.
