Hi Pink! How are you this evening? Usually by the time I get home from work & get caught up on all the threads, everyone is LONG gone - LOL! I'm CA time - what time zone are you in?

Hiya Tams,
I am in IL. I just don't sleep. I suffer from night terrors and insomnia so sleep is something I don't get a lot of. I try. I just am not good at it. Smile

Pinky..I am in Illinois too!

hope that this little one is ok...I am kindof worried on this one though...
how could he have gotten very far if he left the car on his own? and a kidnapper would have had to have been in that exact spot at that exact time..I know it happens, but would guess that it is rare...

Louis Ross, the child's foster father, said he left the boy, Hassani Campbell, outside his newer-model BMW in the back parking lot of Shuz, a shoe store in the 6000 block of College Avenue, about 4:15 p.m. He was there to drop the boy's 1-year-old sister off with his fiance, Jennifer Campbell, the boy's aunt and foster mother, police said. Campbell manages the store.

FBI Searches for Disabled Boy Hassani Campbell
Cops Say Campbell Couldn't Have Walked Far Alone Because of His Leg Braces

By EMILY FRIEDMAN
Aug. 12, 2009
he FBI has joined the search for a 5-year-old California boy, whose cerebral palsy makes it difficult for him to walk and requires him to wear leg braces. He has been missing since Monday.
Oakland, Calif., police, now with the help of the FBI, are searching for Hassani Campbell, an African-American boy who was last seen Aug. 10 with his aunt's fiancé, according to ABC News' San Francisco affiliate KGO-TV.

"We are confirming the FBI is involved in the search for the missing 5-year-old boy," FBI spokeswoman Patti Hansen said.

Campbell, who has brown hair and brown eyes, was wearing a gray sweatshirt and gray pants when he was last seen with 38-year-old Louis Ross, a man police describe as his "caretaker."
The leg braces Campbell has to wear are decorated with a Spiderman design, according to KGO.

Campbell was reportedly seen Monday at around 4:15 p.m. sitting in Ross' BMW outside a shoe store, Shuz of Rockridge, where his aunt and foster parent, Jennifer Campbell, 33, is employed. Jennifer Campbell also cares for the 1-year-old sister of the missing boy.
Ross told authorities at the time that he left Campbell alone in the car when he went to unlock the shoe store so that the child would be able to go inside more easily. He said the boy was gone when he returned, according to the Associated Press.

Authorities do not believe that Campbell would be able to walk far on his own because of his disability.

With the help of the FBI and a search warrant, authorities have been combing the Fremont, Calif., area for clues and have used search dogs to bolster the investigation.

"We've devoted a significant amount of resources to finding this young child because it's very important to us that we locate him as soon as possible," Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan said at a news conference late Tuesday.
Boy's Aunt Is 'Devoted Caregiver'

Asked whether there were any leads suggested Campbell has been hurt, Jordan said that authorities, so far, have no "specific facts" that lead them to believe the boy is harmed, but would not discount it as a "possibility," according to KGO.

Jordan did not immediately return messages left by ABCNews.com today seeking an update on the progress of the investigation.
John Riker, the man who owns the shoe store where the young boy's foster parent works, described Jennifer Campbell as a "devoted caregiver," according to KGO.

An employee who answered the phone at the shoe store today declined to speak to ABCNews.com.
Pamela Clark, the grandmother of the missing boy, told the San Francisco Chronicle that she's anxious anxious fort her grandson's safe return.

"I would like my grandson back," Clark told the paper. "I just hope this works out.

Clark said that she did not think the family is involved in Campbell's disappearance "at all," according to the paper.

Hasanni's godmother, Regina Douglas, told the paper that she did not think Ross or Campbell were behind the boy's disappearance.

"If I knew what happened to Hasanni, we wouldn't be having this conversation," Douglas told the paper.

Douglas described Hasanni as a "very gentle, mild and loving boy."

Missing boy's relatives plead for his return

Henry K. Lee, Chronicle Staff Writer

Wednesday, August 12, 2009
(08-12) 09:35 PDT FREMONT -- Relatives of a missing 5-year-old boy with cerebral palsy pleaded for his safe return today as police and the FBI wrapped up a search of his Fremont home.
Oakland police and members of the FBI's evidence response team left the Roxie Terrace home of Hasanni Campbell at about 1 a.m. today after searching the property for several hours, said FBI Special Agent Joseph Schadler, spokesman for the agency in San Francisco.

Schadler would not say what investigators were looking for and what they may have seized from the home in Fremont's Ardenwood neighborhood. Authorities arrived at the home Tuesday evening with search dogs. The home belongs to Hasanni's foster father, Louis Ross, 38, and his fiancée, Jennifer Campbell, 33, public records show.

Ross told police that the boy disappeared about 4:15 p.m. Monday from Ross' BMW, which was parked on a driveway on Harwood Avenue off College Avenue in Oakland. The boy vanished when Ross walked around the corner to Shuz of Rockridge, a shoe store on the 6000 block of College where Campbell works, Ross told police.

Campbell is the boy's aunt. She became Hasanni's legal guardian after his mother, Shemika Campbell, who is also disabled, could not take care of him, relatives said.

"I would like my grandson back," said Pamela Clark, 62, of San Francisco, who is Shemika and Jennifer Campbell's mother. "I just hope this works out."

Clark and she doubted Ross or Jennifer Campbell were responsible for the boy's disappearance.

"I don't think the family's involved at all," Clark said.

Regina Douglas of San Francisco, Hasanni's godmother, agreed. "There is no custody dispute," she said. "Everyone is satisfied. Everyone was comfortable with the arrangements."

Douglas said her message was simple: "Return our child to the loving environment he was already living in."

The investigation jarred residents on quiet Roxie Terrace, where Ross and Campbell moved in less than a year ago and kept to themselves, neighbors said.

"We don't see them outside very much," said Ben Siu, adding, "I hope they find the boy."

FBI Joins Search for Missing East Bay Boy
5-year-old Hasanni Campbell was last seen Monday

The intense search for a 5-year-old Oakland boy with cerebral palsy has intensified and gained a new tool: the FBI.

Hasanni Campbell was last seen Monday night in Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood, where his foster father took him to see his foster mother.

Police say Hasanni's foster mother's fiance dropped the boy off at a shoe store where the foster mother works at about 4:20 p.m. He left the boy in the car and walked to the storefront to unlock the door, but when he returned, Hassani was gone.

FBI agents on Tuesday searched the Fremont home where Hasanni lives with his foster father and his aunt.

Hasanni's grandmother, Pamela Clark, said that about six months ago, a court removed the 5-year-old and his sister from their mother's home but she wouldn't say why.

Clark says the court then gave legal guardianship of the children to Hasanni's aunt and her fiance. The family says the arrangement was agreed upon and there are no custody issues.

Hasanni has cerebral palsy and wears braces on his legs to help him walk. His family says he has been making a lot of progress in physical therapy lately but they are worried about his health and special needs.

"He's only five years old. He does have some special medical conditions that need to be attended to on a consistent basis." The boy's godmother, Regina Douglas said. "The people who have him now may not have that information."

Family members on Tuesday passed fliers out with pictures and description of Hasanni in hopes it will help them reunite with the boy.

Police say they have interviewed Hasanni's biological parents, who live in San Francisco, and are keeping all investigative leads open.

Hasanni is African American with brown hair and brown eyes. He is about 3 feet tall and weighs 40 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray sweatshirt and gray pants. He wears leg braces that have Spiderman on them.

Park Search Comes Up Empty For Missing 5-Year-Old

Updated: 12:16 pm PDT August 12, 2009

OAKLAND, Calif. -- A search of a Fremont park Wednesday failed to uncover any new leads as to the whereabouts of a disabled five-year-old, who has been missing for more than two days, authorities said.

Fremont police, volunteers and tracking dogs spent more than three hours searching Nordvik Park, near the home of little Hasanni Campbell. But their efforts came up empty and attention returned once again to Oakland.

“We will also go back and re-search areas where we have already searched,” Oakland police Sgt. Ray Bachman told KTVU.

On Tuesday night, authorities searched the Fremont house where the five-year-old has been living with relatives.

The boy was reported missing from the area of 6000 College Avenue at around 4:15 p.m. Monday, according to the Oakland police youth services unit.

Campbell was last seen Monday afternoon sitting in the car parked outside a shoe store where his aunt and foster mother, Jennifer Campbell, works.

Hasanni's foster father Louis Ross told police he had driven to Shuz of Rockridge with the little boy and his one-year-old sister to drop them off with Jennifer Campbell.

Ross told police he left Hasanni in his BMW parked behind the shoe store and took Hasanni's little sister with him as he went around to open up the back door to get the boy. But when he got there, he said Hasanni was gone.

On Tuesday, authorities served search warrants at the home on the 5900 block of Roxie Terrace in Fremont's Hampton Place neighborhood, where the boy lived.

Earlier Tuesday evening, Jennifer Campbell told KTVU she's very distraught over Hasanni's disappearance and that she's asking for the public's help.

Hasanni is African American and suffers from cerebral palsy. He's described as three feet tall and weighing 40 pounds. He was last seen wearing grey sweatshirt and pants. Hasanni has braces with Spiderman stickers on both legs.

In the meantime, law enforcement spent hours at the couple's home looking for clues.

FBI spokeswoman Patti Hansen said she could not give details about the case but confirmed that FBI is helping search for five-year-old Hassani Campbell.

Tuesday afternoon, law enforcement officers removed items from the home, including what appeared to be a computer.

The Alameda County Sheriff's Search and Rescue Team used four dogs to search the premises.

"This dog is trained to find human scent of both alive and dead," said Rhonda Dyer of the Search and Rescue team. "We searched the home here and the area around it."

Earlier in the evening, Hasanni's grandmother talked about the boy. She said he speaks with a slight lisp and loves Spongebob Squarepants, the cartoon character.

"He's a sweet affectionate boy. He's very intelligent very smart," said Pamela Clark.

Grandmother Clark told KTVU her daughter Jennifer was awarded temporary custody of Hasanni by the courts eight months ago when another daughter, Hasanni's biological mother, couldn't care for the boy.

Police would not comment if a possible custody dispute may be a factor in the boy's disappearance.

"We've devoted a significant amount of resources to finding this young child because it's very important that we locate him as soon as possible," said acting Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan.

Grandmother Clark had a message for whoever may have the boy: "I just want my grandson back. If anybody has him please release him, please."

Police are asking that anyone who has information to call them right away.

Thanks for all the updates this morning. Smile

I wonder when the last time someone other than the foster parents saw the little dude. Another family member? A neighbor?

Sister is only 19 months old and can't talk.

It worries me about his "medical condition" I wonder if he needs medication on a regular basis.

I am glad they searched the park, next to the home. He may not be that close though.

Do BMW's have GPS? Is there anyway to track where that car has been? I hope they took his cellphone too.

I agree but I also think there is lazy and crappy reporting nowadays that contribute to a lot of this confusion. They mess up the minor details or don't get them right and then later they are corrected, or corrected in some media but not in others. It makes it hard to separate facts and lies.

I definitely agree with you on the quality of reporting sometimes.  It's like they want to get the news out so fast, the facts aren't checked first.  And when mistakes are made, they aren't corrected and tend to be repeated and compounded.   

I hope little Hassani is found soon.  In one of the articles, it's said "He's only five years old. He does have some special medical conditions that need to be attended to on a consistent basis." The boy's godmother, Regina Douglas said. "The people who have him now may not have that information." http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local-beat/FBI-Joins-Search-for-Missing-Oakland-Boy-53045372.html

He might take medication to help with spasticity. He may also take medication for seizures, as some people with CP suffer from seizures. There is also regular physical therapy that has to be done. To keep him flexible and stretch the muscles. There is also feeding, digestion and breathing problems that people with CP can suffer from.

I am praying so hard for him.

The search for Hasanni was underway in the Rockridge area for the second day in a row. Wednesday evening, detectives were handing flyers out to people in the neighborhood hoping to find someone who saw something. So far, the last person to see Hasanni was his foster father.

48 hours after Hasanni went missing the search for him continues. Search teams canvassed the Fremont neighborhood where Hasanni lives with his aunt Jennifer Campbell and her fiancé. Dogs searched a park near their house for the little boy's scent but investigators called off the search when they came up empty handed.

Oakland police Sgt. Ray Blackman told ABC7 Wednesday that they did not have any solid leads or suspects.

Louis Ross told police he left Hasanni alone in his car parked behind the Rockridge neighborhood shoe store where Hasanni's aunt works. He went inside briefly to drop Hasanni's sister off. When he returned to the car Hasanni was gone.

Authorities towed the car. Police and FBI agents have searched the couple's Fremont home and the neighborhood surrounding the shoe store but some family members question the Ross's story.

"It appears somewhat strange and I don't know. So, I don't really want to speculate," said Hassani's godmother Regina Douglas.

The family is pleading for the boy's safe return.

"We're pleading and appealing to their sensibilities, to their conscience, to return this innocent little boy to his family," Douglas told ABC7.

Police say the couple is cooperating with the investigation but they will not say whether they have taken a polygraph test. Investigators plan to search the Rockridge area for a second day in a row hoping for new leads.

"Primarily, this is a missing person's case. But, we would be neglecting in our duties if we discounted that foul play may have occurred," said Ray.

Jennifer Campbell's sister told ABC7 Wednesday that Jennifer is 5-months pregnant and devastated by what has happened to her family. The family that is worried and waiting for Hasanni to come home, is now also very concerned about his foster mother's well-being.
