    Hope this isn't a d-b. If it is, I am sorry...I did check but did not see it.


    Another one for the "stupid/neglectful foster parents" file.

    I think stupid/neglectful would be the best-case scenario.

    Shouldn't the state have noticed he was missing before now? I mean aren't kids in foster care supposed to have visits from social workers and such?

    By "stupid/neglectful" you mean "criminal," right?

    You know...That thought *did* occur to me.

    "Oh, I'm sorry Ms. Social Worker. Timmy is out playing -- *somewhere*." Maybe heads should roll at the state agency that should have pressed these foster parents for specifics.

    The story says they were his adoptive parents, so I'd guess there would be little to no follow through after the adoption from social workers.

    I submit that the best-case scenario is not the likely-case scenario.

    <blockquote>WICHITA, Kansas - The e-mail was sent by Crystal Herrman, verified by those who know her as the biological daughter of Doug and Valerie Herrman.

    In her letter, Crystal hints that she and her brother may have been the ones who called authorities last month.

    The call began the search for her long lost adopted brother.

    "We started this, which was hard against our own parents as we were not adopted," Crystal said. "But we want more than anything to find the truth, answers and justice."

    Crystal also talks of Adam being abused.

    "We pray every day our parents will come forward," Crystal said. "Do the right thing not only for what they already put Adam through in the past, but to make it right for him now."

    Meanwhile, a former relative, who says she remains close to one of Valerie Herrman's sisters, says the sister told her that Valerie recently commented, "They can dig up the whole state of Kansas, they'll never find a body." …

    The Sheriff also told KSN Tuesday, detectives are preparing a search warrant, but he would not say where it might be executed.</blockquote>
