Ground search for Adji to end Sunday
By WINK News

Story Created: Jan 18, 2009 at 10:19 AM EST

Story Updated: Jan 18, 2009 at 2:03 PM EST

IMMOKALEE, Fla. - The massive ground search for missing six-year-old Adji Desir will end Sunday. The Collier County Sheriff's Office will now switch to a "task force" style investigation starting Sunday afternoon.

Currently the headquarters for the investigation has been in the Immoaklee Farm Workers Village, where Adji lives. The headquarters will now be moved to the Collier County Sheriff's Office Substation in Immokalee.

Investigators will be changing their focus to primarily following-up on tips in the investigation, versus the ground search of the area where Adji lives and was last seen.

New leads in seach for missing 6-year old

Posted: Jan 28, 2009 09:03 PM EST


2,000 copies of a new full page color poster will help get the word out to keep looking for missing Adji Desir. The 6-year old vanished from Farm Workers Village in Immokalee on January 10th. The fliers will go to the East Coast. Haitian communities in Miami and Fort Lauderdale will to post the fliers their neighborhoods.

  Lead Investigator Lt. Tom Smith says, after halting the ground search, now his team is filtering through 500 tips. "We've had tips that cover everything from you need to look in the trunk of a red truck to I've had visions of a house with 666. You have to take each one very seriously."

  What continues to make this case so difficult is direction. Did Adji wander off or did someone take him? Lt. Smith says, "now we are spending time looking at people, at vehicles and doing analytical checks."


  Investigators have re-interviewed the children, some as young as 5-years old, Adji was last seen playing with. Farmer Workers Village only has one way in and one way out. It is very normal for parents to let their kids play outside- even late at night.

  With Adji's developmental disability, he might not be able to explain to someone he is lost or in danger. "Where a child might say, 'this is not my dad' or 'this is not my mom', he might not be able to articulate that," says Lt. Smith

  Collier County Sheriff Office sergeants, patrol officers, and members from the FBI and Florida Department of Law Enforcement are dedicated full time to the Immokalee Substation in the search for Adji.

  Lt. Smith said there are no similarities to the case of missing Fort Myers child Baby Byran. Baby Bryan's parents first reported a woman kidnapped him, but later investigators determined the parents gave the child back to smugglers.

  The Adji's family has been cleared of any suspicion in his disappearance. Another challenge, investigators have to work with consulates to communicate with Adji's father who lives in Haiti.

  The reward for Adji is now at $33,500.

  "We've just got to keep going until we are at the right place at the right time and the right person tells us something," says Lt. Smith.

  If you have any information on the location of Adji Desir call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS.

Program segment brings new leads for Adji Desir

The Collier County Sheriff's Office received seven new leads into the disappearance of 6-year-old Adji Desir after his case was featured last Saturday on the "America's Most Wanted" television program.

"You never ever know when you go on any show whether you're going to get a lot or a little," agency spokeswoman Karie Partington said. "It's a matter of getting the right one."

The Sheriff's Office also released a new photo of Adji on Wednesday, in which he is wearing the two-tone, blue sneakers he wore the day he disappeared. Investigators hope the sneakers will generate fresh leads.

Sheriff's Office Lt. Thomas Smith was slated to appear on CNN's Nancy Grace show again Wednesday night to discuss the case. He has appeared on the program several times since Adji disappeared from outside his grandmother's Farm Worker Village home in Immokalee on Jan. 10.

Anyone with information about Adji's whereabouts can call the Collier County Sheriff's Office at

(239) 793-9300, or if you wish to remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).

<snipped to include Adji coverage only>

NANCY GRACE

Aired March 4, 2009 - 20:00:00   ET


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Law enforcement officials say they continue to get tips in the case of missing Florida boy, Adji Desir, who was last seen playing outside his grandmother`s home. The Collier County Sheriff`s Office are investigating all tips that come in, including one tip that police are looking into today. A tip that may be deemed credible.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Their assignment will be to go through all the tips and leave some signs that we`re posting in the stores and when information is coming through from the media.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: A multi-agency task force has been working day after day to find out what happened to 6-year-old Adji, who`s developmentally disabled and has the mind of a 2-year-old. The South Florida community is pulling together, praying for the boy`s safe return, while a $38,500 reward is being offered in an effort to bring out more credible leads.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

GRACE: Straight out to Rory O`Neill with Westwood One. Rory, what`s the latest in the search for Adji?

RORY O`NEILL, REPORTER, WESTWOOD ONE RADIO, COVERING STORY: Well, good evening, Nancy. They have had some success in getting at least a few more tips. One of them, a good tip that they`re following. That`s because the case of Adji`s disappearance was recently profiled on "America`s Most Wanted," so they did get at least one solid tip they`re still following through on.

No big ground searches going on. That`s been suspended for about 50 days now. So really they`re just trying to follow up this latest lead in the case.

GRACE: Everyone, this little boy cannot verbally communicate. He has the mind of a 2-year-old little child. Therefore, he can`t even explain to anyone that he is lost.

Rory O`Neill, are police now accepting that this is not a case of the child wandering off, that this is a kidnap?

O`NEILL: That`s really what -- as soon as Adji was reported missing, they spent about nine days doing this massive manhunt, while working parallel investigations, that, one, that he just wanted off, and two, that perhaps something had happened. Though they say if a boy this age, developmentally disabled, as you say, really couldn`t walk away too far on his own.

They feel secure in the search that they mounted on the ground. They think someone else was involved in his disappearance.

GRACE: Joining me right now, special guest, Lieutenant Tom Smith with the special crimes bureau, Collier County Sheriff`s Office. He`s the lead investigator into Adji`s disappearance.

Lieutenant, thank you for being with us.

LT. TOM SMITH, SPECIAL CRIMES BUREAU, COLLIER CO. SHERIFF`S OFFICE, ON THE CASE: Thank you again for airing Adji`s story, you know, keeping his picture in everybody`s mind is very crucial to finding him.

GRACE: Lieutenant, it`s stunning to me that this little boy disappears out of his own yard, his grandmother there in the home, taking care of him. What can you tell us about the new lead that is being researched?

SMITH: Well, you know, to say that there`s a specific tip that has some specific potential, it`s pretty difficult. I mean we`ve been getting a lot of leads. And we`ve had about 250 leads, about 30 of those have been -- are still remaining to be, you know, closed out. From the "America`s Most Wanted" show, we got a few tips and a few of them have elements that allow us to dig into them a little bit deeper.

GRACE: Lt. Smith, tell us again about the circumstances surrounding Adji`s disappearance.

SMITH: Well, Adji was out in front of his home in a community housing authority project that consists of about 611 homes, just about dusk on January 10th. And within about, just a 15-minute time frame, around 5:30 p.m., he disappeared. And we`ve not been able to find any information to lead us towards an abduction or towards a walkoff, so, you know, we`ve always accepted the possibility that it could be either one and we`ve worked both of those avenues.

GRACE: What do you mean by a 15-minute window?

SMITH: Well, he was seen around 5:30 and around 5:45, he was not there where he could be called back to the house and they began searching. And it took about two hours of their own searches before they realized that they couldn`t find him and then they called the sheriff`s office.

GRACE: Who saw him at 5:30?

SMITH: He was playing football, tossing a football with a child about his own age, and then the older brother to that friend came over and said, time to come home for dinner, and they`ve left him standing 100 feet from his home.

GRACE: How old was the older brother that came and got the little friend?

SMITH: He`s in his early teens, probably 11 or 12. I don`t know specifically.

GRACE: So that`s a reliable witness?

SMITH: Oh, absolutely. You know, we`ve interviewed all the children that`s playing in the community. It`s a very close knit community because of the type of development that it is. We`ve interviewed his classmates and all the children that he`s played with that whole evening from the time he woke up until the time he disappeared and he just vanished.

GRACE: So at around 5:30, the neighbor friend comes to get the little brother, it`s time to come in for dinner. They leave Adji about 100 feet from his own home and then 15 minutes later what happens?

SMITH: Grandmother comes out to tell him to come into the house and he`s obviously not out front. And the stepfather had been in the same neighborhood doing laundry down at the local washhouse and had walked up to the house, so I mean, it even makes it a little bit more difficult to know that he was right there and nobody saw anything.

GRACE: And this is a very low-crime area?

SMITH: Well, it`s a typical housing authority unit where people are screened very closely before they move in. You know, it`s a zero tolerance type of, you know, crime community, so if you commit a crime or have associated that come in that commit crimes, you run the risk of being kicked out. So, yes, it is a good-natured community.

GRACE: To Dr. Marty Makary, physician and professor of public health at Johns Hopkins, joining us from Washington, D.C..

Dr. Makary, what is your take on the special needs of little Adji?

DR. MARTY MAKARY, PHYSICIAN, PROF. OF PUBLIC HEALTH, JOHNS HOPKINS: Well, it really all comes down to water. You know, from a developmental perspective, a child like this with the mental age of 2 does not have the mental construct to put the logic together that water that they see is what would satisfy their thirst and they`re at high risk for dehydration.

Also because of their stranger anxiety, they may hide from people actually looking for them.

GRACE: What do you mean stranger anxiety?

MAKARY: Well, they can detach from their environment because they become lonely and scared at an early age when they`re not around their typical environment. So they detach and can really burrow into their surrounding.

GRACE: Out to the lines, Sheeba in Illinois. Hi, Sheeba.

CALLER: Hi, hi, darling. I just want to know, Nancy, when people take these pictures with their cell phones, why don`t they stay there -- I would. If I thought, God forbid, it be one of your children, I would not let that person that I thought was your child away from my sight.

Now, I might have to apologize (INAUDIBLE) profusely, but I would not let them out of my sight.

GRACE: You know, Mike Brooks, former fed with the FBI, you dealt with a lot of tips. Why when people really believe they`ve spotted a missing child, do they walk away?

BROOKS: That`s a great question, Nancy. You know, I mean, I think as the lieutenant said, they`ve had over -- about 250 leads, 30 of them, they need to follow up on. It`s going to be case management and also keeping this out in the public, as the lieutenant said, that`s going to find this little boy.

But it sounds like because of his developmental problems, it`s highly, highly unlikely that he walked away from there himself. Someone probably had to take him out of there because it`s such a rural area.

GRACE: The reward is now nearly $35,000. Tip line, 800-780-8477.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SMITH: This is a farm worker`s village. It`s a housing authority community consisting of about 600 homes, about 468 are occupied. And it`s a stand-alone community in the middle of a farm field. Most of them are permanent migrant workers. They`re farm hands and they work at the packing houses.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It takes boots on the ground, individual deputies getting out there and crawling through culverts and looking in brambles and bushes. So we`re just taking the search and being as thorough as we can.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

GRACE: Where is little Adji? To Rupa Mikkilineni, our producer on the case in the very beginning. Rupa, what can you tell me?

RUPA MIKKILINENI, NANCY GRACE PRODUCER: Well, you know, police have a couple of really theories here. The real theory is that he was abducted. I mean they`re leaning towards this. Mostly because they have done extensive searches in area almost immediately as soon as he disappeared, Nancy. So they`re thinking somebody in the Haitian community might know something.

GRACE: And what are they doing about it? I know the entire area has been canvassed. I know they`ve got a lot of press just recently. How many tips did that generate, Rupa?

MIKKILINENI: Over 2500 tips, actually, in the last two months. This child has been missing almost two months now, Nancy. What they`re also doing is expanding throughout all of southeast, southwest Florida, the Miami area, hitting the Haitian communities in those areas, talking with Haitian minister, apparently, they`re speaking with who might be going to Haiti soon and will be spreading word even there.

GRACE: And I understand new photos have been released.

MIKKILINENI: Yes, new photos have been released. One important clarification for one of the photos is there`s a photo of him sitting Indian style, I think, and it shows the sneakers that he was wearing when he disappeared. In previous photos, I think, those sneakers were described as grayish. They`re actually dark blue and light blue.

GRACE: Special thank you tonight to Rory O`Neill and Lt. Tom Smith, along with Rupa Mikkilineni, joining us on the story.

Little Adji, 800-780-8477.
