    I think the mom should be charged with something (child neglect).
    I know as a soon to be mom, I'd never sit in a car and watch my child.
    So many bad things (like in this case) can happen within seconds.
    I hope they find the girl unharmed, but it seems unlikely now.

    Acting on anonymous tips mailed to a casino and library in Ohio, police spent two days searching a snow-covered wooded area for missing Bridgeton 5-year-old Dulce Maria Alavez, but no evidence was found despite using K-9s and drones, a detective there told NJ Advance Media on Monday.

    Austintown, Ohio, police scoured 30 to 40 acres near a Hollywood Gaming casino and horse racing track using two cadaver dogs, according to Austintown Detective Lt. Jordan Yacovone. The drones used for the aerial search were equipped with infrared technology, Yacovone said.

    Up to 10 officers took part in the searches Friday and Saturday.

    Apart from confirming the tips were mailed to the casino and Austintown Library, Yacovone declined to comment on the contents of the letters.

    The two-page, handwritten letter was received by the library within the last week and a half, according to Janet Loew, the library’s community and public relations director. She also declined to discuss the contents of the letter, but noted that much if it was illegible.
    The area searched by Ohio police, located close to the Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course, is snow-covered currently and additional searches may be conducted once the weather warms up, Yacovone said.

    He noted that this is one of hundreds of tips authorities searching for Dulce have received in the investigation and each one needs to be pursued.

    “We just don’t blow it off. We investigate every tip,” Yacovone said. “What we’re doing is dotting our i’s and crossing our t’s."

    Police in Ohio are investigating a third anonymous letter received regarding the disappearance of New Jersey 5-year-old Dulce Maria Alavez, who has been missing more than five months.

    Austintown, Ohio, authorities are already investigating a letter mailed to a local library and an index card mailed to a casino regarding Dulce.

    A search conducted over the weekend near the casino based on information provided in the card turned up nothing, Austintown Detective Lt. Jordan Yacovone told NJ Advance Media.

    Dulce was reported missing from a Bridgeton park during a family outing on Sept. 16. The case has made national headlines and a reward stands at $75,000.

    Police in Weathersfield Township, Ohio, about six miles from Austintown, have now received a similar index card regarding Dulce, but Yacovone referred questions about that case to Weathersfield police. The card contained different information, he said.

    Weathersfield police did not respond to questions on Tuesday.

    Based on the handwriting, the two items received by Austintown police appear to have been written by the same person.

    The two-page letter sent to the library referenced Dulce, the investigation in New Jersey and an episode of the “Dr. Phil” TV program that focused on the case. Dulce’s mother was interviewed for that show last year.

    The information in the letter was the sort anyone could find from a quick internet search, Yacovone said, and didn’t reference locations in Ohio. The index card, however, offered details that were specific to the Austintown area, which is located in eastern Ohio, close to the Pennsylvania border.

    I saw one of these a couple of weeks ago when they sent our last batch of coupons.

    https://www.nj.com/cumberland/2020/0...pon-books.html

    The search for missing Bridgeton 5-year-old Dulce Maria Alavez is hitting millions of mailboxes across the nation thanks to a long-running partnership.

    The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children collaborates with coupon distribution giant Valassis, which sends out coupon booklets via direct mail and newspapers inserts. Each week, the packet includes a “Have You Seen Me?” box with a photo and information about a missing child.

    The current child shown is Dulce, who was reported missing from Bridgeton City Park during a family outing on Sept. 16. Her disappearance sparked an Amber alert and a reward stands at $75,000.

    The FBI is working with local, county and state agencies to locate the child.

    “Valassis has been one of our longest-term partners,” said John Bischoff, acting vice president of the missing children division at the national center. “For us, it’s an enormous asset.”

    Since the mid-1980s, the coupon packets have included the familiar missing child feature for an important reason.

    While technology has evolved and the center shares information across various platforms, the key remains getting those photos in front of as many eyes as possible, Bischoff said.

    The write-up includes a toll-free hotline — 1-800-843-5678 — where people can call with tips. Each child is featured for several weeks at a time.

    They've got nothing. I can't believe it's almost been a year.

    Investigators searching for a little girl who disappeared from a Bridgeton park more than 11 months ago believe she was likely abducted by someone looking for an opportunity to take a child.

    They also believe surveillance videos harvested from the area could show the abductor’s vehicle.
    “If you are looking for a child to take the child, you go where children are,” said FBI special agent Daniel Garrabrant. “That’s one of the reasons that we believe that the target was a child, but it may not necessarily have been Dulce. We’ve had cases like this across the country where offenders go to places where children are and they would have access to children and they wait for the opportunity.

    “In this case, it was broad daylight, mom being distracted for a short period of time and Dulce and her brother being far enough away, that the offender felt like it was an opportunity for him to take Dulce and leave with her and that’s what he did.”

    Dulce’s mother, Noema Alavez Perez, told police she remained in her car checking a scratch-off lottery ticket and helping her 8-year-old sister with homework. The sister noticed she could no longer see the kids at the playground, prompting them to go check on the children.

    The playground is located next to a few storage buildings and the abductor could have parked along the street on the other side of those buildings and waited, the agent said.

    “The person’s intent might not have been to take a kid,” according to Garrabrant, an East Coast leader for the FBI’s Child Abduction Rapid Deployment Team. “It could have been maybe to watch children because that’s what they liked, and the opportunity presented itself and they did what they did.”

    Investigators and family members cling to the hope that Dulce is alive.

    Nothing has been discovered to suggest otherwise, Garrabrant said. No physical remains have been found and searchers have combed the immediate area around the park. A hunting season has come and gone and nothing has been discovered in fields and woodlands surrounding Bridgeton, he added.

    “I’m working under the premise and the assumption that she’s still alive,” he said.
    Description of a suspect

    The park was a popular spot on the warm September afternoon when Dulce vanished. About two dozen people were playing basketball nearby. Witnesses confirmed seeing kids at the playground.

    From there, two descriptions emerged of what investigators believe is the same person — a Hispanic man about 5 feet 8 inches tall and about 30 to 35 years old, with acne. This could be the abductor, according to the FBI agent.

    “There’s a probability that the person was a younger Hispanic male,” Garrabrant said. “That’s because we do have some witnesses that saw a Hispanic male in the park in and around the playground that we have not identified. We don’t know who that is. It’s very possible that it’s the offender.”

    The first description indicated the man had no facial hair, while the image released with the second description shows a man with facial hair.

    In one description, he was allegedly seen ushering a girl into a red van. However, Garrabrant said the vehicle information may not be accurate.

    “We have literally gotten thousands and thousands of red van leads. None of them have panned out to date.”

    While the playground does not have cameras, agents have spent thousands of hours scrutinizing gigabytes of surveillance video from homes and buildings in the immediate area around the park in search of a suspect vehicle.

    Garrabrant said they’ve ruled out every vehicle on camera except for about 10 to 12 because of a lack of a visible license plate or too general of a description. Some of the video isn’t very clear.

    It’s not possible to get out of the park without being picked up on a nearby camera, he noted.

    “We believe that, in all likelihood, we do have a suspect vehicle on video someplace.”
    Why was Dulce taken?

    A motive in the case is unclear, Garrabrant said.

    He stressed that Dulce’s family members remain cooperative, but declined to say anyone has been ruled out as a suspect.

    “Sometimes the family becomes a point of focus, but throughout the investigation to date, they continue to be cooperative and engaged and it’s important that the community knows that,” he said.

    In an interview with NJ Advance Media last September, Alavez Perez said Dulce’s father, who now lives in Mexico, expressed an interest in seeking custody of the child when she was 1 or 2 years old, but never followed through on it.

    Investigators have found no evidence of a custody dispute between Dulce’s parents, Garrabrant said. The father has been interviewed by investigators and has also been cooperative, he said.

    Investigators can usually track efforts by family to take a child out of the country, including through searches of phone records leading up to a disappearance, Garrabrant said.

    Cumberland County prosecutor, Bridgeton police chief dispel rumors that missing Dulce Maria Alavez found dead

    Cumberland County and city law enforcement once again dispelled rumors late Tuesday that Dulce Maria Alavez, a young girl who went missing from City Park last year, had been found dead.

    “A Facebook post circulating on social media is FALSE INFORMATION!” county Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae said in a post on the agency’s Facebook page. “Information like this is a distraction to the investigation and causes unnecessary grief to the family of missing child Dulce Maria Alavez.”

    Webb-McRae confirmed that the investigation is ongoing "and will never close until we find Dulce and/or the person responsible for her disappearance" in an email to The Press Wednesday morning.

    "I have to respond to false information like this being disseminated because I have to dispel false information which may divert the public's attention from reporting suspicious information which may lead us to determining whose responsible for Dulce's disappearance," she said.

    A photo included with the post shows Dulce with “False Information” written in red capital letters across her face and chin, along with what appears to be a government seal in the upper right-hand corner. Underneath, in white type, it reads “It is with great sadness to report that Dulce Alavez has been found deceased. We will hold a press conference when we know all the details.”
