Shame on Boston media not showing up on 2nd anniversary of missing child. Heartsick for his family.


Released the following and no media called family nor showed up. Why?

Dorchester family to hold public candlelight vigil for missing child  

Kristopher Lewis was 13 years old when he went missing on Feb. 4, 2014, and his family is desperate to find him.


 BOSTON - Jan. 29, 2016 -- The family of missing teen, Kristopher Lewis, will be holding a candlelight vigil to acknowledge the second year of his disappearance.  The public and media are welcome to attend. Those attending will meet at the family home at 94 Selden St., Apt 2, in  Dorchester at 5:30 pm.  A short walk will be done to the bus stop that Kris was last seen and a prayer and balloon release will be done. Please dress warm. Missing posters will also be be given to those in attendance and with the hopes that they will be hung somewhere visible within the community.  Kris was 13 at the time of missing.

His mother, Nina Cancel-Gandy says "I'm hoping this vigil will reach everyone in the community to realize that Kris is still missing and I need whomever has information to please come forward. I love and miss my son and his siblings are lost without him." She also doesn't understand why there is not more media awareness for her child. "It hurts. I can't help wonder if my child were a girl if more would be done to find him? Two hours is a long time to not know where your child is, let alone two years."

Karen Ranoni of LostNMissing, a nonprofit assisting the family from New Hampshire,  says, "Usually a child of that age, when missing, is having some adult assistance and especially after such a length of time." Adults assisting a minor child by allowing them to stay at their home, without parental or guardian approval, can be charged with custodial interference. She further adds, "Naturally, we do not know where Kris is or if anyone is holding him against his will, which would be a prosecuting crime if that is the case." "This is why it is important for public awareness. Kris needs to be located and in many cases someone has the needed information, in the public, to find him."

Last year LostNMissing organized a building mural, which still hangs, on the side of SignsByJ in Dorchester. The sign company donated the printing and hanging of the mural which is visible on I-93 south.

Lewis is described as a biracial male of Hispanic-African American heritage standing 5'1" and weighing under 100 pounds. He has a scar through his left eyebrow as well as a scar on his upper lip. If anyone has information on his disappearance, or has recently seen Lewis, to please contact the Boston Police Department, Div B3, at (617) 343-4700, or (617) 343-4687. You may request to remain anonymous.

#Missing: Marisol Espinosa, 34 - Dallas, Texas

[Missing: Marisol Espinosa, 34 - Dallas, Texas]

The family of Marisol Espinosa now say homicide detectives are part of the search for the missing mother.

Dallas police now consider her former boyfriend to be a person of interest in the case of the missing woman.

A source told WFAA that search warrants were executed Saturday in what has become a homicide investigation.

WFAA found police officers and a crime scene unit late Saturday at the home Espinosa shared with Faustino Valdez.

Around 10:40 p.m. Saturday, detectives entered the front door of the home. Crime scene investigators were still at the scene into the night.

On Sunday, Espinosa's family spent six hours searching the area around Lawnview Park and Sycene Rd near White Rock Creek in southeast Dallas.

Her cousin Mindy Trujillo was at the home Saturday night when investigators arrived with a search warrant.

"They sat there and told us it's not uncommon for the homicide unit to become involved in high priority type cases," Trujillo says.  "I''m not going to lose faith because I believe we are going to find her."

Multiple sources said investigators have been unable to locate Valdez for several days. Police were also searching for items connected to him as they search for any sign of his missing girlfriend.

In recent days, WFAA has learned of Valdez's violent past.

Records confirm that he has been investigated for assault twice in the last two years. Espinosa's family has confirmed reports of abuse that include Valdez having a weapon and engaging in domestic violence.

#Missing: Marisela Fabian Hernandez, 38 - Pomona, California (Husband dies of apparent suicide)

[Missing: Marisela Fabian Hernandez, 38 - Pomona, California (Husband dies of apparent suicide)]

Authorities were searching for a 38-year-old woman who went missing a few days before her husband's body was discovered in an apparent suicide at their home in Pomona, officials announced Thursday.

Police responding to a suicide call Wednesday found Ivan Zarate dead in his garage at the home he shared with his wife Marisela Fabian Hernandez around 10:30 a.m., according to the Pomona Police Department.

"When I came back I thought somebody broke into my garage because the lock was missing and there he was," said 19-year-old Fernando Zarate, the oldest of four kids in the family. "He was the best."

Police are investigating what they call suspicious circumstances around the disappearance of Hernandez, who failed to report to work on Sunday and has yet to contact her kids or relatives.

Hernandez, who has a history of marital problems with Zarate, has left two or three times before, but is always in contact with her family, according to Marcus Perez of the Pomona Police Department. Hernandez left her car behind and it is unknown how she left her home.

Police say Hernandez may have a boyfriend in Albany, New York after family said that's where she disappeared to last month. 

"I hope she's watching, I hope she can get down here as soon as she can because there's a lot of things that need to be taken care of," Fernando said.

A possible murder-suicide has not been ruled out, police said.

Hernandez is described as 5-foot-3, weighs 133 pounds, and has brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information about Hernandez's whereabouts is asked to call the Pomona Police Department at 909- 620-2151.

#Missing: Randy McLaurin Davis, 26 - Aynor, South Carolina (Suspicious Circumstances)

[Missing: Randy McLaurin Davis, 26 - Aynor, South Carolina (suspicious circumstances)]

Horry County Police searched in the Aynor area Friday morning for a man who was reported missing nearly one week ago.

According to Lt. Raul Denis with Horry County Police, more than 20 officers will be in the vicinity of Valley Forge Road and Coolbreeze Drive in Aynor Friday morning searching for Randy McLaurin Davis, 26, of Conway. Officers searched on foot and ATV four hours, but as of 12:45 p.m. Friday had not discovered anything of interest in Davis' disappearance.

Davis was reported missing on January 23, after leaving a home on Marshland Road. Lt. Denis says Davis' disappearance is under "suspicious circumstances," and he has failed to make contact with his family since Jan. 23.

"Everybody says that's not like Randy. It's not like him to not call at least one time a day. All of his friends have said you know Randy has always called us at least once, twice a day. Even more for a minute to say hey but it's not like randy to not say anything at all," his sister Kristie Davis said.

Davis is described as a white man, standing approximately 6 feet tall, weighing about 150 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. Davis was last seen wearing a gray jacket and blue jeans.

"Randy is a good person. He's a good hearted person. He's got two children and I know they're wishing for their daddy to come home," his mother Loretta Davis said.

#Missing: Eugene R. Schmelzer, 61 - Combined Locks, Wisconsin

[Missing: Eugene R. Schmelzer, 61 - Combined Locks, Wisconsin]

Police continued to search Friday for a 61-year-old Combined Locks man who left his home early Thursday morning.

Eugene R. Schmelzer left his home sometime after 1 a.m. on Thursday and hasn't been seen since, according to Fox Valley Metro Police.

He was last seen wearing glasses, black jeans, work boots and a reflective safety jacket. He is 5-feet-8-inches tall and about 150 pounds with gray hair and brown eyes. Police said Thursday they were concerned for Schmelzer's safety because of the cold and because Schmelzer didn't have a car with him.

"This is not typical of his behavior," said Fox Valley Metro Police community support officer Michael Lambie. "We don't have any indication that he went to a certain area or was with anyone in particular."

Lambie said Schmelzer does not suffer from dementia or Alzheimer's disease. He said there is no indication of foul play.

K9 search units with the K9 Emergency Response Team volunteer group assisted with search efforts Thursday afternoon and evening but were unable to find Schmelzer.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Lambie at the Fox Valley Metro Police Department at 920-788-7505.

Critical #Missing: Olene Brooks, 68 - Amelia County, Virginia (Abducted - Suspect confirmed dead)

[Critical Missing: Olene Brooks, 68 - Amelia County, Virginia (Abducted - Suspect confirmed dead)]

The Amelia County Sheriff's Office has announced expanded search efforts for Olene Brooks, the Amelia grandmother, who was abducted last Thursday from a home in the 17000 block of Poor House Road.

"Amelia County residents can expect to see an increased presence of law enforcement over the weekend in the Court House area of the county. Beginning Saturday (Jan. 30), the Amelia County Sheriff's Office with assistance from the Virginia State Police (VSP) and Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) will be conducting concentrated search efforts in relation to last week's abduction and disappearance of Mrs. Olene H. Brooks," the office said in a press release.

The search efforts will continue through Monday, February 1, as law enforcement, canine teams, and VDEM conduct strategic, grid search patterns in proximity to the Brooks' residence.

The alleged abductor, Dana William, shot and killed himself as police in Fitchburg, Massachusetts moved in Wednesday morning, the Worcester County District Attorney's Office confirmed Friday.

The Sheriff's Office said since the abduction-homicide at the Brooks' residence last Thursday, they have been working closely with the Virginia State Police to track the suspect's movements and locate Mrs. Brooks.

"We've been searching non-stop for her, but are now in a position to expand those search efforts and bring in additional resources and personnel to do so."

"In addition to seeking information concerning Mrs. Brooks, we are also asking for anyone who might recall seeing her minivan in the Metro-Richmond area Friday before William left for Massachusetts," said Sgt. Stephan Vick, Virginia State Police Richmond Division. "The 2010 Dodge Caravan is silver with a handicap license plate "433114." The vehicle is missing the passenger side, front wheel-well lining and the quarter-panel molding on the driver's side."

Mrs. Brooks is described as a white female, 5'4 in height and weighing 160 pounds with brown hair and green eyes.

Anyone with information concerning Mrs. Brooks, William, and/or recalls seeing the minivan is still encouraged to call the Amelia County Sheriff's Office at 804-561-2118, Amelia Crime Solvers at 804-561-5200 or the Virginia State Police at #77 on a cell phone or email at questions@vsp.virginia.gov.

Amelia grandmother taken hostage after family zip-tied, duct-taped

The home abduction began Thursday (Jan. 21, 2016) at approximately 11:15 p.m., when Amelia deputies arrived at a residence in the 17000 block of Poor House Road (Rte 603). They found a male subject, later identified as Woodell E. Brooks, 67, deceased inside. Further investigation revealed that Mr. Brooks' wife, Olene, 68, had been abducted by Dana Lee William, who fled the residence in the Brooks' 2010 Dodge Caravan.

Before Brooks' abduction, William allegedly zip-tied, duct-taped and held her family hostage at gun point.

"He told me in order for me to save my family, I would have to call my mom to the house," Brooks' daughter Sheila Smith said. When she refused, she said things intensified. "He tied [my daughter] with zip ties and tied my friend up with zip ties, then tied me and my son up."

He then sent a text message to Brooks using her granddaughter's phone, law enforcement sources said, to lure the grandmother to the Poorhouse Road home. Brooks' daughter said the text asked Brooks to bring a thermometer over because the four-year-old was sick.

On Jan. 27, 2016, William, 43, was located by the U.S. Marshals at an apartment in Fitchburg, Mass. As they closed in on the apartment to apprehend William, he shot himself. William succumbed to his wound. The Brooks' minivan was recovered at the scene and processed for evidence.

William, who was recently released from prison after a rape conviction, served two years of a 40-year prison sentence because 38 years of that sentence were suspended.

Family members said last week's violent rampage was William's way of getting revenge on the Brooks family for the time he spent in prison.

In addition, days before the hostage situation in Amelia, law enforcement sources said William had inappropriate sexual contact with a teenage girl inside a Maybuery Drive home in western Henrico.

Endangered #Missing: Michelle Lynn Inch, 31 - Lycoming County, Pennsylvania

[Endangered Missing: Michelle Lynn Inch, 31 - Lycoming County, Pennsylvania (may be victim of foul play)]

A missing Lycoming County woman is feared to have been the victim of foul play, state police say.

Their suspicion is based on blood found on the outside of Michelle Lynn Inch's abandoned car, found about 8 a.m. Thursday in a rural area outside Canton in Bradford County, investigators said Saturday.

She was last seen about 5 p.m. Tuesday in the Canton area with her boyfriend, Michael James Houseweart, who police said she drove home since she was not working that day.

Since her disappearance, every place Houseweart and she were known to have gone has been searched, Cpl. Joseph Akers, a state police crime supervisor at Montoursville said.

People were out all Friday night, he said. Divers checked Rose Valley Lake in northern Lycoming County Friday afternoon.

The cell phone belonging to the 31-year-old woman, described as 5-feet-2-inches tall and weighing 160 pounds with brown hair and hazel eyes, went dead Tuesday and there has been no activity on her credit or bank cards, police said.

Earlier Tuesday, she went with her parents, Gary and Linda Inch, to the state police barracks in Montoursville to report fraudulent activity in their checking accounts.

A search warrant affidavit states that a check stolen from the couple had been deposited in the account of their daughter last Saturday and several ATM withdrawals were attempted Monday in Canton.

According to the affidavit, a stolen check belonging to Michelle Inch made out to Houseweart was cashed at a bank in Canton with $50 deposited and $150 taken in cash.

A third check stolen from Gary Inch also was made out to Houseweart, with $100 of it being deposited and $200 taken in cash, the document states.

About 3 a.m. Wednesday, two armed men wearing ski masks broke into the Sechler Driver home of Gary and Linda Inch east of Montoursville.

They bound the couple with duct tape, stole items from the house and then set it on fire.

Houseweart and Brian Matthew Vroman have been charged with the home invasion and are in the Lycoming County Prison without bail on 43 counts each that include attempted homicide, aggravated assault, robbery and arson.

An in-law told state police Houseweart seemed depressed Tuesday, was upset about Facebook messages between his girlfriend and an ex-boyfriend and commented he felt like burning down someone's house, a search warrant affidavit states.

A different police affidavit states Houseweart admitted that Vroman and he broke into the home. Houseweart had lived there with Michelle Inch for about a month, police said.

Gary Inch remains at Lehigh Valley Hospital–Cedar Crest, where he is being treated for smoke inhalation from the fire. He was rescued by firefighters.

His wife, who was able to break free of the duct tape and go to a neighbor's for help, was treated at Williamsport Regional Medical Center and released.

If seen or have info, call 911.

Press Release: Dorchester family to hold public candlelight vigil for missing child

Dorchester family to hold public candlelight vigil for missing child  

Kristopher Lewis was 13 years old when he went missing on Feb. 4, 2014, and his family is desperate to find him.


 BOSTON - Jan. 29, 2016 -- The family of missing teen, Kristopher Lewis, will be holding a candlelight vigil to acknowledge the second year of his disappearance.  The public and media are welcome to attend. Those attending will meet at the family home at 94 Selden St., Apt 2, in  Dorchester at 5:30 pm.  A short walk will be done to the bus stop that Kris was last seen and a prayer and balloon release will be done. Please dress warm. Missing posters will also be be given to those in attendance and with the hopes that they will be hung somewhere visible within the community.  Kris was 13 at the time of missing.

His mother, Nina Cancel-Gandy says "I'm hoping this vigil will reach everyone in the community to realize that Kris is still missing and I need whomever has information to please come forward. I love and miss my son and his siblings are lost without him." She also doesn't understand why there is not more media awareness for her child. "It hurts. I can't help wonder if my child were a girl if more would be done to find him? Two hours is a long time to not know where your child is, let alone two years."

Karen Ranoni of LostNMissing, a nonprofit assisting the family from New Hampshire,  says, "Usually a child of that age, when missing, is having some adult assistance and especially after such a length of time." Adults assisting a minor child by allowing them to stay at their home, without parental or guardian approval, can be charged with custodial interference. She further adds, "Naturally, we do not know where Kris is or if anyone is holding him against his will, which would be a prosecuting crime if that is the case." "This is why it is important for public awareness. Kris needs to be located and in many cases someone has the needed information, in the public, to find him."

Last year LostNMissing organized a building mural, which still hangs, on the side of SignsByJ in Dorchester. The sign company donated the printing and hanging of the mural which is visible on I-93 south.

Lewis is described as a biracial male of Hispanic-African American heritage standing 5'1" and weighing under 100 pounds. He has a scar through his left eyebrow as well as a scar on his upper lip. If anyone has information on his disappearance, or has recently seen Lewis, to please contact the Boston Police Department, Div B3, at (617) 343-4700, or (617) 343-4687. You may request to remain anonymous.
