Courtney Beard, a mother of two who was kidnapped while going to work at the Green Oak Township Olive Garden by her ex-boyfriend 23 year old Brandon Jay Smith of South Lyon from the parking lot at about 5:20 p.m. Friday after a “physical altercation” occurred as the woman was heading to work.
Kidnapped Courtney Beard found injured by alive
It was first believed Smith had a gun, but witnesses said he had a knife, police said.
Antrim County sheriff’s deputies found Beard at about 5:49 a.m. Saturday at a remote hunting cabin north of Mancelona that Green Oak Township Police Chief Robert Brookins said belongs to a Smith family member.
There is good news in the end from this story as Courtney Beard was found injured but alive in Antrim County early Saturday morning. Courtney Beard suffered from wounds and hypothermia.
Beard had been injured and was suffering from hypothermia from reportedly walking for several hours in the snow to reach the cabin. She was flown by helicopter to Otsego Memorial Hospital in Gaylord for emergency medical treatment.
The nature of her other injuries was not immediately known. The reason for the altercation also was not immediately known, but police said Smith was on electronic tether from a domestic violence case involving Beard. His criminal record also includes a misdemeanor conviction for assault and battery.
Brandon Jay Smith was also at the cabin with Courtney Beard and was taken into custody and arrested. It is reported by police that Brandon Jay Smith is on probation in connection with a recent assault against Courtney Beard. Beard’s family says he was ordered to stay away from Courtney Beard, but apparently removed his tether before the alleged kidnapping. The judicial system needs to throw this individual in jail before this stalking winds up in murder.

Missing boy, father rescued today by Coast Guard
22 year old Devon Hollahan has been missing since he attended a concert on November 21, 2009 in Frankfurt, Germany. Hollahan was last seen at approximately 3:00 am when he and a friend were traveling back to a hostel following the concert. According to the friend, he was traveling back to a hostel with a friend, who stopped to ask for directions. When the friend turned back around, Hollahan was gone.
Hollahan’s father, Jeff Hollahan, told NBC’s “Today” show on Friday that hearing his son had vanished is “every parent’s worst nightmare.” Jeff Hollahan plans to travel Sunday from his home in Scottsdale, Ariz., to Germany to help search for his son. Devon Hollahan had been teaching English in Prague since July.
Devon Hollahan and his friend Josh Friedman had traveled to Frankfurt, Germany from Prague to attend a concert by the band Portugal The Man on November 20. Hollahan works as an English teacher in Prague. According to accounts, Hollahan and Friedman had been drinking beer following the concert.
Hollahan and Friedman had been drinking beer and were “tipsy” after attending an after party with the band, his father said. They then took a taxi to central Frankfurt to find their hostel around 3 am, getting out at the Hotel Luxor before heading to the Taunusalange metro station – on the edge of the city’s red light district. Friedman turned away from Hollahan to ask someone for directions, but when he finished, his friend was gone. “It was in a matter of just one-and-a-half to two minutes,” Hollahan’s father Jeff told The Local from a television news studio in Scottsdale, Arizona, where he was preparing to make an appeal for help in the search for his son.
“The plan has been to generate some media attention so we can get more eyes and ears on the street that are familiar with his description in case someone sees him or remembers something from early Saturday morning,” he said.
Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts was asked to contact the following people:
- Jeff Hollahan 602-571-4547 or firstname.lastname@example.org
- Franz Seitz at the US Consulate, Frankfurt: 011-49-69-7535-2516 or 011-49-175-726-8343
- Christian Shults, ARSO, U.S. State Department: 011-49-170 634 3343
- Josh Freidman, Prague: 011-420-773-695-268
UPDATE I: Still No Clues into Scottsdale Banker’s Son Missing in Germany … Kidmapping Suggested as Motive
Some in the German media have suggested that this might be a kidnapping because the father of the missing man is a VP with a local branch of Morgan Stanley. However, if that were the case there would be some contact and a ransom offer. Is it more possible that the usual responsible individual became irresponsible and got involved with some unknown people who might have taken advantage of him? Or did the drinking and tipsy behavior turn into an accident that could have cost him his life?
The story that is being told by the friend does not seem to be the full one, IMHO.
UPDATE II: US father in Germany to search for missing son
UPDATE III: Body of an American student who disappeared in November has been recovered from Frankfurt’s Main River

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.

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.
