Somer Renee Thompson, Age 7, Missing From Orange Park Florida

Somer Renee Thompson

Somer Renee Thompson

The following is from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children:

Somer was last seen walking near her school on the afternoon of October 19, 2009. She was last seen with her hair in a ponytail tied with a red bow, wearing a maroon sweatsuit with a pink stripe, and a black tee shirt. She was carrying a purple Hannah Montana backpack and lunchbox.

A statewide Amber Alert has been issued for Somer.

Somer vanished not far from where Haleigh Cummings disappeared earlier this year. While there has been a great deal of public suspicion expressed towards Haleigh’s parents, there have been no arrests connected to the little girl’s disappearance.

According to the Florida Times-Union (Jacksonville), there has been a recent attempted child abduction in the area from which Somer Thompson vanished yesterday. From the Times-Union:

“The lady was trying to lure my daughter in, saying, “Your mother told me for you to get in the car so I can take you home,” the mother said. “My daughter said no. This other lady saw everything happen. She said they instantly drove off.”

You can follow links above for further information, but if you have information concerning the whereabouts of
Somer Renee Thompson, contact the Clay County Sheriff’s Office at 1-877-277-6911 or dial 911.

    This is such a sad story! Steve, you are greatly missed on truecrimereport.com! Are you blogging anywhere else or are you taking a hiatus?

    That’s funny, looks just like a crime blog.

    About Me

    About 5 years ago I started a crime blog on my own, on a lark. A dark lark, I guess. Then, for whatever reason, it turned into a 'thing.' Since then I've written for TruTV, Radar Magazine, ASSME and Village Voice Media. As a crime-related talking head I've appeared on Fox News, HLN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS and was even part of an aborted series pilot on TruTV. My crime-blogging has received notice in several publications, including Rolling Stone's ranking of two sites as among the top 5 true crime sites on the 'Net in 2006. Village Voice Media brought me on-board to run The True Crime Report in 2008. I'm on Twitter: @SteveHuff.
