xx Bindics Case to Appear on "Without a Trace"
« Reply #20 on: Oct 13th, 2004, 12:26pm »

(October 12, 2004) - - The FBI is making use of the CBS television network to try to get leads in the case of missing Jamestown mother Yolanda Bindics.

On this Thursday night's broadcast of drama series "Without a Trace," the nation will be made aware of Yolanda's disappearance in a brief profile report.

"Without a Trace" airs this Thursday at 10:00 p.m. on Channel 4.

FBI Special Agent Paul Moskal said, "We try and profile people we think will benefit from increased publicity."

The FBI has taken over the investigation of Jamestown police officer Michael Watson, who knew Yolanda Bindics and has been charged with harassing and stalking women in unrelated cases.

Some corrections to some of our earlier reporting: Watson's case has not been granted a change of venue. It will not be heard in Erie County.

The Chautauqua County District Attorney asked for and was granted a recusal from the case to avoid a conflict of interest with the Jamestown Police Department.

A special prosecutor will be brought in to try Watson on the harassment and stalking charges in Chautauqua County.

xx DA's Office Ask Judge to Take Them Off Jamestown..
« Reply #21 on: Oct 13th, 2004, 12:29pm »

A new development in a stalking case against a Jamestown police officer.

The Chautauqua County District Attorney's office Tuesday asked the judge to take them off the case because Officer Michael Watson has testified for them in the past. They want a special prosecutor appointed.

Watson is also being questioned in the case of missing mother of four, Yolanda Bindics, but the charges against him are not related to her disappearance.

(October 15, 2004) - - The case of a missing Jamestown mother hit the national airwaves Thursday night.

The hit CBS Television drama "Without a Trace" featured a public service announcement about 26 year old Yolanda Bindics Thursday night.

The mother of four disappeared without a trace from her work more than two months ago.

The FBI and family members hope the segment featuring Yolanda's picture and brief description will generate new leads in the case.

Yolanda Bindics' sister Anne Chmielewski said, "There's parents out there, this could be your child. Somebody please help bring Yolanda home or bring peace to our family."

xx What Happened To Yolanda Bindics?
« Reply #24 on: Nov 5th, 2004, 06:24am »

What happened to Yolanda Bindics? It's a question that haunts her friends and family here in Jamestown, and we just don't know.

But over the past few weeks we've been able to find out what happened in the days leading up to her disappearance -- events, conversations, some of which could be a window into solving the mystery.

Until she vanished, Yolanda was a single mom with four children from four different fathers. To some that would be a burden, but to Yolanda, it was a blessing. She was always happy, her mother says, until right before she disappeared.

Reporter: "Something was bothering her?"
Yolanda's Mother: "Yeah."

It was something important that she was planning to reveal the night she vanished.

Reporter: "She had a secret she wanted to tell you?"
Yolanda's Mother: "Yes. Yes she did."

And to this day, no one knows what it is because she never had the chance to tell anyone that night.

It was Tuesday, August 10th. Yolanda was leaving work at the Jamestown Family Dollar with Nicole Berg, the last person to ever see her.

Nicole Berg: "I was doing the alarm and I locked up. We both came out at the same time. I said, well, Yolanda, give me a call later and she said okay. And she got into her car and got on the phone."

The phone call was to her brother Frank.

Frank: "I remember hearing her say 'goodbye' to Nicole."

He was baby-sitting Yolanda's children.

Frank: "She asked me if she needed any(thing) food-wise around the house. We were giggling with each other and that's when she said I'll be there in less than an hour. About 15 minutes after that... about 8:35... I called her back. There was no answer at all."

Yolanda never came home, making Frank the last known person to talk to her.

Brother: "It's hard. Real hard. I think about it every day and every night (eyes watering)."

So does Nicole.

Nicole: "And I should have stayed five more minutes... and... (long pause)."
Reporter: "I don't think anyone blames you for that, nor could you blame yourself."
Nicole: "I do (wipes her eyes, sniffles). I'm sorry."

The next day police found Yolanda's car at the Arby's just up the road. There were no signs of a struggle or any clues.

"Something's just not right here," said Captain Lee Davies of the Jamestown Police Department. "This isn't just your run-of-the-mill missing person case."

It just didn't make sense. Yolanda agreed to cover someone's shift the next day at work. And she said nothing about leaving to anyone, not even her closest friends.

Reporter: "What do you think happened?"
Nicole: "I think someone kidnapped her or did something to her. I think somebody was waiting somewhere around here, watched me leave and came up and did something."

Leading up to that night, Yolanda's mother says all was not well. her daughter wasn't her smiling self, she says. She also believes Yolanda looked tense, tired and stressed.

Could it have had anything to do with the secret? First we wanted to find out what it was.

Mother: "She wanted to tell it to Margaret first. She was closest to Margaret."
Reporter: "Her sister from North Carolina?"
Mother: "Yes, yes."

We spoke to Margaret by phone.

Reporter: "When was she supposed to tell you about the announcement?"
Margaret: "After 8 o'clock, Tuesday, August 10th."

That's the night Yolanda vanished.

Reporter: "And you were never able to get a hold of her?"
Margaret: "No."

Margaret says Yolanda had an important doctor's appointment three days earlier.

But for what?

Margaret: "She could have very well wanted to tell me that she's pregnant because of the fact that in the past, with her last two daughters, I am the first one in the family she tells."

Her mother has two theories.

Yolanda's Mother: "She was either going to get married. She decided to marry Darien after all, or, she thought she was pregnant with her boy."

By "Darien" she means Darien Thomas. He's the father of Yolanda's second child, and her on-and-off boyfriend for the last seven years.

A week before Yolanda vanished, the two took a trip to Canada alone.

Darien: "We talked on the way out and the whole time we were there, and she never mentioned any kind of secret me."

Reporter: "You had actually, recently... again... asked her to marry you?"
Darien: "Ah-hah. Ah-hah. We were... we were looking at settling down, perhaps finding a home together."

But Yolanda never agreed, he says. Later, after she vanished, Thomas and several other men close to her became "persons of interest," say police, and took polygraph tests.

Reporter: "Do you know what happened to her? Did you have anything to do with her disappearance?"

Darien: "Uhm, absolutely not. I have no idea what happened to her. And of course, I absolutely had nothing to do with her disappearance."

There was suspicion surrounding a Jamestown Police Officer, Michael Watson. He was put on paid leave just days after Yolanda vanished because, according to investigators, he had a relationship with her.

Then, there was something that, at first, seemed like a break in the case. On October 4, the Jamestown Police Chief announced that Watson was under arrest.

As it turned out, Watson's arrest was not for Yolanda's disappearance, rather on charges of stalking several women.

Weeks earlier there was another puzzling arrest involving someone else who had a relationship with Yolanda, Clarence Carte.

Carte is the father of Yolanda's youngest child. Like Watson, Carte was arrested on unrelated charges -- a probation violation from Florida.

There were also several searches in nearby woods, gravel pits, creeks and gorges, but investigators found nothing.

Later, police caught a break, finding Yolanda's keys and pocketbook after they washed up from a Jamestown storm drain. They sent divers into the sewers and the river, but they found nothing else.

Reporter: "In your heart, do you believe she's still alive?"
Yolanda's Mother: "Well, we're wondering."

Darien: "It's unbelievable."
Reporter: "How much do you miss her?"
Darien: "I miss her more than anything (tearing up)."

But he's still hopeful the new clues about Yolanda's actions, mood and secret before her disappearance will finally lead them to her.

Captain Davies: "If we can fill in those blanks, that would hopefully lead us to be able to solve the case."

And while they wait, they keep Yolanda close by, seeing her smiling face in home video and in photographs.

A smile that vanished from their lives, and still, no one knows why

xx Making a case for missing adults
« Reply #25 on: Nov 11th, 2004, 10:50am »

Susan Small was missing. Age 32, heavy build, tattoos on her left hand, pierced tongue, blond hair.
The cops didn't flag the case as suspicious.

"They said they get a lot of these reports every day, and unless they have something solid, they weren't going to follow up on anything," recalled her sister, Connie Baptiste.

Small's brother followed up with the police two days later. He stressed that his sister would never have disappeared and left her two children at home with her boyfriend.

Finally, three days after the first missing-person's report was filed, Baptiste placed an emergency call to 911 and pleaded with police to visit her sister's house because Small's boyfriend wouldn't let any family members in.

That day, the Buffalo police found Small. Her body had been cut into pieces and left in her West Side home.

When an adult in Western New York is missing, the disappearance rarely makes headlines. Many cases don't even warrant a detective's notice.

A few recent cases, however, have riveted many people's attention.

Yolanda Bindics, the Jamestown woman and mother of four who went missing Aug. 10, has been the subject of an intensive search and investigation.

Michelle Piwowar, the Hamburg woman and mother of three, went missing Oct. 23 and was found dead last Thursday after her husband led police to her body.

These two cases stand among more than 3,000 adult missing-persons reports filed over the last 18 months with police departments in Erie and Niagara counties, according to the state's Department of Criminal Justice Services.

The vast majority of these missing adults eventually turn up, though in more than half the cases filed with Criminal Justice Services, it initially categorizes the missing person as having disappeared under suspicious or dangerous circumstances.

In Erie County, roughly 92 percent of all reports filed for missing adults are canceled because the person is found, according to the data. The percentage is even higher in Niagara County.

More often than not, missing adults resurface on their own or have obviously left voluntarily. That's why police officials say that while they look into each missing-persons report, not all cases warrant a search or major investigation.

Baptiste, Small's sister, said the police expressed little interest in assisting her family when they called for help. She said she stressed to the authorities that her sister's disappearance was truly unusual and so did her brother.

"I just had the impression that unless we looked for her ourselves, there wasn't anything they were going to do," she said, "like I was pretty much wasting my time."

Small's body was found Oct. 25, 2003 - about three weeks since she had last been seen by family members.

While Baptiste faulted the police for not investigating her sister's disappearance right away, she acknowledged that by the time the police were contacted, it was probably too late to save her.

Small's live-in boyfriend, Michael Anthony Morgan, 26, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder. He is slated for trial Nov. 22.

Marlene Kovacik, a Buffalo police technician who processes all missing-persons complaints for the city, said that as of August, Buffalo's missing adults accounted for roughly a fourth of reported missing-adults cases in Erie County.

Yet despite the overall number of reports, she said that in her experience, fewer than 20 city cases involve people who are still considered to be missing under strongly suspicious circumstances.

Adult disappearances are challenging on several levels, police said.

While juveniles often go missing because they are runaways or caught in custody disputes, adults often disappear for an even wider variety of reasons.

They may have mental illnesses, be fleeing a troubled home situation or simply be too irresponsible to alert family members or co-workers of their plans to stay with a friend or to take a trip.

In fact, Kovacik said, it's common for fighting spouses to report each other missing when one or the other stays away from home for a day or two to drink or gamble.

"They're mad at each other so they go off and report one another missing," she said. "Over the years, you see a lot of that."

In some cases, the circumstances of an adult's disappearance is simply unknown, said Lt. David Mann, commander of the Buffalo Police Department unit that follows up on missing-persons complaints.

Police and family members are often left to speculate whether the person who's missing has voluntarily left the scene or been the victim of foul play.

A person's lifestyle often influences the police's decision-making regarding a person's disappearance, Mann said.

One notorious case in Vancouver, British Columbia, has made headlines across the continent. Police believe that pig farmer Robert "Willy" Pickton may be linked to the disappearance of nearly 70 drug addicts and prostitutes from the city.

The Vancouver Police Department has been heavily criticized for brushing off the missing-persons reports for these women, which spiked from 1997 to 2002, as well as clues and petitions for help from victims' family members and friends.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police was eventually called to help with the investigation. It pulled much of the information it needed to go after Pickton from the city Police Department's files, according to news reports. Pickton was arrested. His trial is expected to begin in the spring.

xx Site Comes From Psychic Tip
« Reply #28 on: Nov 26th, 2004, 10:53pm »

It's been three and a half months since Yolanda Bindics vanished, and her family says that sadness and frustration are taking over their lives.

"Honestly, it's just tearing everybody up, tearing everybody apart almost, said Anne Chmielewski, Yolanda's Sister.

Her family has tried hard to stay hopeful through search after search, but that hope is wearing thin.

"It's a terrible feeling," said Patricia Bindics, Yolanda's mother. "We don't know how to place it in reality in our minds."

With clues slowly drying up and little else to go on, her family says its now willing to listen to the advice offered by psychic friends, who have led them to a particular spot.

"If they feel that strongly that (place) needs to be searched, than by all means, it's another place to search," Chmielewski said.

The place is Hallock Street in Jamestown, specifically a wooded area there, where the family is planning a weekend search.

Yolanda's family says psychic friends repeatedly dreamed about that area. They also saw a white cross that perhaps, they say, is like the one on the front of a church on Hallock Street.

"It's been so long now, I almost want to believe somebody can honestly feel something," Chmielewski said.

It's not much, her family says, but will have to do while they wait for the answers they really seek.

"Who would hurt her? Why? Why take her from the family? Why take her from her friends and the children?" Chmielewski said.

The search party will meet Saturday, November 27 at 11 a.m. at Hillcrest Baptist Church in Jamestown.

The Bindics family is asking for volunteers, if for no other reason than to help them cover more ground in what's expected to be a wide search area.
