There were some 150 law enforcement searchers, including tracking dog teams, divers and helicopter units involved in ground and water searches for missing Somer Renee Thompson.
“Obviously we suspect foul play in the fact that she did not come home last night,” said Sgt. Dan Mahla of the Clay County Sheriff’s Office. “This is totally out of character for her.”
“In fact, the climate conditions and the age and the size of that child would have made it very very tough for her to survive.”
Police have stated that there have been 150 leads; however, there have been no “persons of interest” named or any physical evidence found that might lead LE to where the missing girl might be. Make that 200 leads and counting.
Volunteers: We Will Search All Night for Somer if Necessary

Texas EquuSearch will begin a search for Somer Renee Thompson, age 7, on Wednesday, October 21, 2009, at 8:00 a.m. The Command Center will be located at Orange Park Athletic Association, 1086 Fromhart St., Orange Park, FL 32073. The website for the park is www.opaa.us.
UPDATE II: Body of Missing Somer Renee Thompson found in Landfill
Sadly, the body of 7 year old Somer Renee Thompson has been found in a Georgia landfill. Investigators have confirmed that the body of a young girl that was found in a Georgia landfill about 50 miles from the Jacksonville, FL area where Somer went missing was Somer Renee Thompson.
Officials from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation say that they will not determine, nor disclose, until an autopsy is performed tomorrow morning if the body is that of little Somer Thompson. Thompson vanished on her mile-long walk home from school Monday in Orange Park, Florida. John Bankhead, spokesman for the GBI tells Fox that the investigators are still at the scene where the body was discovered, but that the body of the young female has been sent to Savannah, GA for the autopsy in the morning.
UPDATE III: The autopsy might just be the piece of the puzzle that provides an arrest and justice for Somer. If Somer Renee Thompson was sexually molested, then there will be DNA evidence that will nail the scumbag(s) that committed this heinous crime. With all of the sex offenders in the area of the abduction, it will be hard to believe that there will not be matching DNA evidence on a database.

The search was resumed Sunday at 6 a.m., but so far with the same futile result as the day before.
Police are hesitant to call the girl’s disappearance a case of foul play just yet, but the girl’s family fears the worst.
“I’ve tried to keep the thought of somebody grabbing her out of my mind,” says her mother, Melissa Baum.

Melissa Baum said Lindsey wasn’t angry Friday night, and left without money, a change of clothes or her cellphone. Police have searched for the girl in the homes of her friends, in case she had been “hiding out.”
“She wouldn’t have run away,” Baum said, her voice hoarse. “If she had been hiding she would have come out by now. She can’t hide that long, she loves to talk.”
