      Lord knows what we would do if we didn't have facebook or myspace? Just how would we communicate?

    I must agree. Washington, NC PD in an outstanding job. They were responsive and appropriate resulting in the safe return of the child. Hopefully they will be able to help make sure Worthington is punished to the full extent of the law for this assault, battery , and abduction case as well as his pending child abuse and felony murder charges. Too bad we can't do to him what he has done to these babies and their mothers.

    Amber Alerts are not issued for every missing child. They are issued for missing children with strong suspicion of danger. The "baby daddy" is due in court in May for Felony Murder of another baby.

    Isn't he out on bond charged with the murder of a baby?

    He is "the baby daddy" I presume??? Guess he thought he could take her on a little outing and it would be "OK" with Mom.
