I don't know if anyone outside of Calif is aware, but a 7 yr old girl was abducted out her bed in San Diego, Calif. The S.D. County Coronor has declared her dead, but the authorities have not yet located her body. ================================================== [url]http://kfwb.com/news/local/l022713.html[/url] San Diego Police Investigating Discovery of Body EL CAJON, Calif. (AP) 2.27.02, 4:20p -- Police investigating the disappearance of 7-year-old Danielle van Dam were called to a rural area east of San Diego on Wednesday to look into the discovery of a body, apparently that of a child. The remains were discovered Wednesday afternoon by volunteers who have been conducting an exhaustive search for the San Diego girl, who was reported missing on Feb. 2. Police said the unidentified body appeared to be that of a child. It was partially burned, according to a sheriff's deputy on the scene. The age of the body or its gender were not immediately known, said Ron van Raaphorst, a spokesman for the San Diego County Sheriff's Department. A positive identification of the body could take several days, police said. The body was found along a road near the Sycuan Indian Reservation, about 25 miles east of San Diego, about 2:15 p.m. San Diego County Sheriff's deputies alerted San Diego police, who have been investigating Danielle's disappearance. Danielle was last seen on Feb. 1, when her father put her to bed in her family's north San Diego home. She was discovered missing the next morning. A search for her involving thousands of volunteers has stretched from Mexico to the desert east of San Diego. A neighbor of the van Dam family, David Westerfield, 50, pleaded innocent Tuesday to charges of murder, kidnapping and possession of child pornography. He was being held without bond in isolation in a San Diego jail.
