I am so praying another little sweetheart hasn't been taken from this earth. How does a three years old just vanish from her home in the morning. I know there is cases like Jessica Lunsford (even the name matches) where it was proven she was taken from her home. I can only pray they find her but it sure sounds suspicious!

I sure hope they find Aliayah soon. In the video, the area looks heavily wooded with dense underbrush.

The dog leading the searchers to the river bank has me concerned.

I wish there were more details. I wonder how long it was before she was reported missing after she was noticed missing.

I hope this is not a Shaniya Davis situation where the mom reported her missing long after she was given to the pervert!

What I mean is something could have happened to the child hours earlier or days earlier and was reported missing after a story is fabricated.

This may be another Joshua Davis case (New Braunfels, TX). He just vanished from inside the home with about 7 or 8 people inside! He is still missing.

Isn't it kind of unusual that a 3 year old is already missing four front teeth? I know all kids are different, but my kids lost their first tooth at 5 1/2 & almost 6 years old. Then the next three teeth came later. Just something that caught my eye.

I agree with you Julie - I thought that was rather weird.

She also looks really sad in the picture.

5 NEWS UPDATE: Authorities Searching for Missing 3-Year-Old Girl

Last Updated on Monday, 26 September 2011 08:32

Written by Ashton Marra
Saturday, 24 September 2011 14:48

WDTV - Bridgeport, WV

As dive teams from multiple counties slowly search the water near her home, Aliyah Lunsford's family is still waiting for word of the missing three-year-old, and are now reaching out to the community for help.

"Around 9 or 9:30, I went back in to wake her up and she was gone," said Lena Lunsford, Aliayah's mother.

Three-year-old Aliayah Lunsford went missing from her Bendale home Saturday morning, and ever since, search teams have turned her typically quiet neighborhood upside down in hopes of bringing her home.

"We've done a foot canvas of the neghborhood, used k-9s, now we have divers in the water. We've entered her in as missing," said Sgt. Michael Posey of the Lewis County Sheriff's Department.

Family members say Aliayah is a shy child. They say she never talks to strangers and would never have wandered off alone.

Help! I tried to embed the video from the article above.

The many lines of the "code" appear but when I click Submit the video does not appear. Just blank space!

I am learning how to post videos from TV stations. This one won't work for me! Would some one please see if they can post the video and tell me what I am doing wrong? Thanks!

After viewing the above video and reading what little has been disclosed in this case, my hinky meter continues to go up in this case.

It is being reported that Aliayah was last seen at 6:30 but was not reported missing until about 11:30 a.m.

Five hours is a long time considering Aliayah is only 3 years old.

I would think after a frantic search of the home and just outside the home, the mother would have called 911 stat!

Aliayah looks very sad in the picture that the family provided to LE and media.

It appears she has a bruise above her left eyebrow. It is also very disturbing that this 3 year old child would have tooth loss at such an early age.

I look forward to more information on this case.

The time frame in which this child was reported missing is very disturbing considering she is only 3 years old.

WESTON, W.Va. — Authorities continued to search Monday for a 3-year-old girl who went missing from her Lewis County home over the weekend.

Police say Aliayah Lunsford's family reported her missing from her Bendale home just 150 yards from the West Fork River on Saturday morning. Her mother, Lena Lunsford, told WDTV-TV (http://bit.ly/nqbycw) that she went to wake the child at 9:30 a.m., and she was gone.

Lena Lunsford's last contact with her daughter had been about three hours earlier, said State Police Sgt. C.M. Alton. Other siblings were in the home at the time, and authorities said the family is cooperating with investigators.

5 NEWS UPDATE: Community Comes Together to Look for Missing Girl

Written by Nicole Porter
WDTV - Bridgeport, WV

Monday, 26 September 2011 16:29

The search continues for a 3 year old Lewis County girl who has been missing since Saturday.

More than 1,000 volunteers have joined Police in combing the streets trying to find Aliayah Lunsford.

It seems as though Aliayah disappeared into thin air Saturday. Dogs can't track her scent and Police don't have any clues as to where she could be, but that hasn't stopped the community from coming out to look for the girl.

Lewis County, West Virginia - The red dot is Weston.

It is my understanding Bendale, where it is being reported that Aliayah went missing from, is in the Weston area.

Are there any folks from West Virginia that are familiar with this area? Please comment. Thanks!

Jane Velez-Mitchell hosted the Nancy Grace Show tonight.

I did not get to watch the first 20 minutes of the show. This is some of the info that was disclosed on the show. I do not know if all of it is accurate or true.
~~~~~~

Aliayah's mother, Lena Lunsford, is 8 months pregnant with twins. Because of that, she was not given a polygraph test.

Certain people are being polygraphed. Did not state who.

The dogs picked up Aliayah's scent from the home to the river. The river is less than 100 yards from the home but there is thick underbrush and it would probably be difficult for a 3 year old child to navigate.

Lena, the mother, has a criminal background regarding forgery. Also has a criminal history in two other counties.

Aliayah may have been born while her mother, Lena, was incarcerated.

Lena has 5 children. Per Law Enforcement (LE), Aliayah's biological father does not know Aliayah is his daughter. Lena never told him.

Aliayah has a stepfather. He left the home early to go to work at a nearby resort (hotel, etc.). Did not state his occupation.
LE confirmed he was at work as he stated.

Aliayah was sick Saturday morning. Lena checked on her at 6:30 a.m. and she was sleeping. There was a 9 year old sibling with Aliayah and Lena took the 9 year old out of the room so Aliayah could sleep late.

Lena checked on Aliayah about 9 or 9:30 a.m. and Aliayah was gone.

Lena drove around the area looking for Aliayah. Supposedly ran out of gas and borrowed either gas or money for gas.

Some of the places Lena went captured her on security cameras.

She drove around looking for Aliayah until 11:30 a.m., came home and called LE to report Aliayah missing.

Per LE, the front door of the home did not close well. The home is an older home.

There are 25 sex offenders in the area. They are being questioned by LE.

Aliayah is shy per Lena.

Some of the guests have a problem with the time line. They don't understand why Lena would drive around for almost two hours looking for her child since she was only 3 years old. They don't understand why she did not call LE promptly when she discovered that Lena was not in the house versus driving around looking for her.

They think the 9 year old could be very helpful to LE as to what happened in the home.

They notice that Lena is the only one talking and she is saying the last time she saw Aliayah was at 6:30 a.m. What if that is not so?

The transcript to the Nancy Grace Show should be available later tonight. When it it available, I will post the Link.

Also, sometimes there are videos of the Nancy Grace Show. Maybe Sierra1947 will post the videos from the show tonight.

If so, I'll post them here.

5 NEWS UPDATE: Community Comes Together to Look for Missing Girl

WDTV - Bridgeport, WV

September 26, 2011

The search continues for a three-year-old Lewis County girl who has been missing since Saturday.

More than 1,000 volunteers have joined police in combing the streets trying to find Aliayah Lunsford.

It seems as though Aliayah disappeared into thin air Saturday. Dogs can't track her scent and police don't have any clues as to where she could be, but that hasn't stopped the community from coming out to look for the girl.

On Saturday, crews searched the area near her home in Bendale. Sunday the search stretched out, now crews and volunteers are retracing their steps. Dogs were back out in the area, and for the third day divers were in the river. Volunteers say they will continue to retrace their steps until this girl is found.

"We have no clues that have risen yet. It is beyond frustrating. A three-year-old doesn't just disappear," says Sgt. Michael Posey with the Lewis County Sheriff's Department.

Many of the folks in our area are still in shock over Aliayah Lunsfords disappearance.

Thanks for the updates Ann. I'm guessing the stepfather was polygraphed. I'm not sure who else they may have polygraphed. I can't imagine them giving a polygraph to the children. The stepfather may be able to be ruled out as a suspect if the 9 year old can confirm that Aliayah was alive after the stepfather left for work. However, the mother's story of driving around for two hours before calling the police sounds hinky. I pray that Aliayah is found safe.

Lewis County Girl Missing

Posted Monday, September 26, 2011 ; 06:08 PM
Updated Monday, September 26, 2011; 06:57 PM

She was last seen wearing purple pajamas and a pink sweatshirt.

By Malarie Dauginikas
WBOY - Clarksburg, WV

BENDALE -- UPDATE Monday Sept. 26 6:08 p.m.
It has been more than three days since anyone has seen Aliayah Lunsford.

She disappeared from her home in Bendale near Weston early Saturday morning.

Boat teams, canine units and foot crews have scoured woods, streets and water searching for any sign of Aliayah.

"Christmas Day, when she was going to open up her presents, she always opens up the biggest ones first and the smallest ones for last. She was really, really proud of what she got for Christmas. I just want her back home," Wendy Swiger, Aliayah's aunt, said.

Regarding the updates, you are welcome Justice!

Lena, the mother, is the one saying she took the 9 year old out of the bedroom around 6:30 because Aliayah was sick and sleeping.

I hope she is being truthful.

On the Nancy Grace Show, a guest said certain people are being interviewed 5 and 6 times. Did not say who the certain people are. Implication was the stepfather and mother, Lena, were being interviewed.

A guest on NG said the disappearance of Aliayah will focus on the home because she was last seen in the home. That's a no brainer!

I hope that whoever interviews the 9 year old has experience in interviewing a child.

I wish the stepfather's name would be released. I'd see what I could find out about his background.

Yeah, that doesn't sound right. I wonder if Alaiyah had wandered off before. Or maybe Lena was just not wanting LE in the picture if they didn't have to be.

Perhaps they are polygraphing the sex offenders.

K-9s, volunteers, police search in West Virginia for 3-year-old girl

By the CNN Wire Staff - CNN
updated 10:07 PM EST, Mon September 26, 2011




Aliayah Lunsford, 3, was last seen by her mother and sister around 6 a.m. Saturday, police say.


CNN) -- K-9 dogs and hundreds of volunteers have joined authorities in West Virginia to look for a missing 3-year-old girl, but a sheriff's department lieutenant said in the two days since she was last seen that "we haven't come up with anything."

Aliayah Lunsford's mother and 9-year-old sister told police they saw the girl around 6 a.m. Saturday in a bedroom in their home in Weston, West Virginia, located between Charleston and Morgantown. The mother said she returned about three hours later to see the girl -- who had been sick the night before -- and take her temperature, but Aliayah wasn't there, Lewis County Sheriff's Lt. David Parks said Monday.

By that time, the girl's stepfather had already been picked up and left for work. The mother got in her car and drove around looking for the child, at one point running out of gas, said Parks. She called police to report Aliayah missing around 11:30 a.m.

Thanks for posting the transcript, Justice!
I came here with a "loaded mouse" and was going to post it.

Also, thanks for posting the video.

I wonder if the NG Show will cover Aliayah's case tonight. I hope so.
