Closed Cases and Known Hoaxes

I can't understand why anyone would make up a hoax... But I do understand why they get passed along. It is because people for the most part want to help when a child is missing. They like me, find it hard to believe that anyone would make up a hoax about a missing child. As hard as it is to believe, it happens. This is one of reasons that before we send any alerts or notices for a missing child we first check with the law enforcement agency that is handling the case, plus we also require permission from the custodial parents. I know that this might be over kill but it is just our policy. We also do this for some reasons other than just to keep from forwarding any hoaxes, like we would never want to harm an on going investigation. To view our policy on the verication process, click here.

But I feel if the average person would just take a minute and check with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children http://www.missingkids.org/ to see if the case is listed or email it to us and we will check it out, and let you know. It might help cut down on the hoaxes.
One more thing if you know of any missing child hoaxes or just received an email concerning a missing child, please let us know so we can check it out..

Thank You,

Dean Powers

We have spent many hours trying to check this case out. We have yet to find anything.  We can't find any reports being filed with any Law Enforcement Agency that we can find. We have been told that it hasn't been listed with NCMEC. We haven't been able to find any report in any online news services about this case.

UPDATE We have received word that this was not a hoax but a closed case. The child was found after being missing for just 2 hours.

Below is the email that the mother sent out. She has made every effort to recall the notice but it is still going around. I am in touch with the mother and "Bethie" is home and doing well.

I have a request...........this is my 15 year olf daughter Elizabeth. She is missing and has been missing for 13 days today. I need to get her pic out to as many people as possible. She has been abducted and I do not know where she is. Her hair is now blonde and long, but the pic is very close to what she looks like now. Please help me here, I have reported her missing to the police and the missingkids website, she is in the NIC system and have sent her pic out to hundreds of people. But my resources have been exhausted
and im afraid for my daughter. If you could pass this on, anyone seeing her can contact me at my e mail address or 911. Her name is elizabeth Siranda. Please say a prayer for her safe return. Thank you so much. God bless you. Lilly aka Yamard. This girl is from Maine and was visiting a friend in Boston when she disappeared.
