Texas Equusearch Helps Find Missing Randle Terry

18 year old Randle Terry had been missing since Tuesday, May 29, 2007 while swimming in Spring Creek near Riley Fuzzel Road. Volunteer members of Texas Equusearch joined the efforts to help find the missing Terry.

Texas EquuSearch crews used boats to search the water.

“The current is not as strong as I thought it was going to be,” said Tim Miller with Texas EquuSearch. “The waters went down considerably since yesterday, so all we need now is a little bit of luck and a lot of prayers.”

The Coast Guard and local law enforcement agencies searched the area until about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, and then again on Wednesday but found nothing.

Searchers said the water is very murky and about 20 feet deep because of recent rainfall.

The searched turned into a recovery mission by Wednesday afternoon. Volunteers believe Terry’s body is near where he was last seen.

“Normally, they don’t go too far. But, we do realize we’ve got quite a current here,” Miller said.

However, on Thursday the body of Randle Terry was found by members of Texas Equusearch in Spring Creek.

TES crew members have found the body of Randle Terry about a mile from where he went underwater in the creek. We pray that this family can now find the peace and begin to heal as they find ways to deal with this tragedy. We wish to thank everyone for their genuine care and concern to find this young man. A special thank you to all of our members who continue to dedicate themselves for such a tough job. Thank you to all of Randle’s classmates, teachers, family and friends that came to support each other. May you all continue to stay close and keep each other through this difficult time and always. God Bless you all.

This beautiful photo was provided by Carolyn Mitchell. Randle’s family wanted us to share this photo with you all. May You Rest In Peace. (TES)

UPDATE I: Baby Kidnapped from Texas Hospital.

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - A woman posing as a medical worker kidnapped a three-day-old infant from a hospital early Saturday, police said.

Mychael Darthard-Dawodu was last seen at 1:20 a.m. at Covenant Lakeside Hospital when a woman wearing blue and flower-print hospital scrubs and a gray hooded jacket took her and drove off in a pickup truck, police said.

Hospital surveillance video showed the woman with the jacket hood pulled around her head and holding a purse as she walked through the lobby.

The woman may have had a male accomplice, Hudgens said.

“At this point we don’t have any reason to believe that the family knew the suspect,” Hudgens said.

The suspect had gone into the mother’s room several times before the baby was taken, telling the mother the baby needed treatment, said Stafford.

“I think there was more than one attempt,” Stafford said. “I’m trying to verify if it was two or three times.”

3-year-old Ethan Foley Still Missing, Kidnapped by Biological Mother, Noel Raleigh (UPDATE: Found Safe)

It has been more than a month since 3 year old Ethan Foley went missing. He was kidnapped by his biological mother, Noel Raleigh and his aunt Stephanie Martinez. Sharon Foley-Pryor is Ethan Foley’s paternal grandmother and his sole legal guardian. The missing persons case was initially handled rather poorly.

Time is critical in any missing person’s case — especially when you’re searching for a kidnapped child. But in the case of 3-year-old Ethan Foley, there was no Amber Alert issued and it took a month for police to finally alert the media. Now, we find out why police waited and why Ethan’s grandmother fears too much time has passed. Sharon Foley-Pryor, Ethan’s grandmother said, “I’m frightened for him… so frightened for him.” (KLAS-TV)

Ethan’s grand mother fears for his safety as his mother lead a rather wild and dangerous life using drugs. AMBER ALERTS are usually a beneficial tool in helping locate missing children; however, in this case it failed miserably. It supposedly did not meet the criteria. One needs to seriously ask themselves why there would be restrictions on a tool used to find children. It hardly makes sense.

That same night — Sharon Foley-Pryor says, with her legal guardianship documents in hand, she and her attorney pleaded with Metro to issue a statewide Amber Alert for Ethan — but she was told the case didn’t meet the criteria. “They said because she didn’t say that she was going to hurt him, that it couldn’t be an Amber Alert,” said Foley. Metro Missing Persons detective, Sandy Southwell, confirms there must be an imminent threat of danger to enact an Amber Alert. Metro says parental abductions are also the most complex kidnapping cases they deal with.

If you have any helpful information, call Metro’s Missing Persons Unit at 828-LOST.

UPDATE I: Missing Las Vegas Boy Found in Virginia

A three-year-old Las Vegas boy missing for a month is back in the Valley.

Ethan’s Foley’s grandmother, Sharon Foley Pryor, told Eyewitness News Friday afternoon he was located in Virginia. She is flew there to get him over the weekend.

She now hopes to work on changing the criteria for Amber Alerts so they can be issued in cases of child abductions in which it is not immediately known if there is a threat to the child. (KLAS-TV)
