« Thread started on: Oct 20th, 2004, 10:49am »

Cayce McDaniel Excerpt fron NAPN:

McDaniel returned to her family's home in Milan, Tennessee at approximately 12:30 a.m. on August 16, 1996 after a church party. A chaperone dropped her off there and watched her go into the house. Other family members arrived at their residence at approximately 1:30 a.m. - 2:00 a.m. and discovered that the back door was open. There was no sign of McDaniel inside the house and she has never been heard from again. McDaniel was possibly wearing a t-shirt and boxer shorts at the time of her disappearance. She was probably barefoot. Foul play is suspected in McDaniel's case.
A sketch of a possible suspect in McDaniel's disappearance is posted below. He is described as being in his early twenties in 1996, with a dark complexion, dark hair and dark eyes. He was approximately 6'0 and weighed 165 - 170 pounds. The suspect had a scar underneath his right eye and wore an earring in his right ear. He has never been identified.
In March 1998, more than eighteen months after McDaniel vanished, the evidence of psychics and cadaver dogs prompted police to drain a west Tennessee farm pond in search of her body. The 3 1/2 acre pond is a popular hangout for teenagers. Nothing was found there, however, except animal bones and a pair of pants and shirt that did not belong to McDaniel.
There were two unconfirmed sightings of McDaniel in her hometown after her disappearance. Witnesses said the girl was accompanied by an unidentified man in his twenties when spotted. Authorities do not know if the girl was actually McDaniel or another young female. McDaniel's case remains unsolved

March 9, 1998

The Associated Press

MILAN, Tenn. -- Authorities drained a West Tennessee farm pond but found no sign of a 14-year-old girl who has been missing for more than 18 months.

Cayce McDaniel was last seen at about midnight on Aug. 16, 1996, when a church chaperone dropped her off and watched her go into her house.

A psychic and cadaver-detecting dogs prompted police to search the pond, a popular hangout for teen-agers just off Middle Road.

The 3 1/2-acre pond was drained, but all authorities found were animal bones and a pair of pants and a shirt that did not belong to the girl.

Police planned to continue searching the area today.

« Reply #2 on: Oct 21st, 2004, 06:34am »

CHAMPAIGN A man wanted locally for a Champaign murder, a teen-age Tennessee girl missing for a year and a 23-year-old Cleveland man wanted for murder.
Police want to learn the whereabouts of all three:
Patrick Lamar "Bud" Thomas, 23, is wanted for the April 5 murder of James Betts in Champaign.
Cayce McDaniel, 15, has been missing since Aug. 16, 1996.
Mark Strbac, 23, is wanted for murder in Cleveland, Ohio.
Photos and information on all three will be featured as a new, Champaign-based national search organization kicks off its operations today. Troy Daniels, currently a sergeant of investigations with the Champaign Police Department and previously a deputy and investigator with the Champaign County sheriff's office, heads up U.S. All Points Bulletin.
At a press conference today at Precision Graphics, 106 S. Neil St., C, Daniels was to demonstrate how the use of photos of missing children and wanted criminals will be used on an Internet website and through a network of newspapers.
"Until now, criminals have been able to commit crimes in one state, go to another, set up identities and, literally, walk the streets without law enforcement always knowing who they really are," Daniels said.
The goal of USAPB is to make it harder for criminals to do that and to help locate missing children. The organization will do that by distributing pictures and information to 1,172 newspapers with an estimated daily circulation of 52 million readers. The photos and information also will be posted on the group's webpage at www.usapb.org beginning today. The group's initial searches feature the Champaign and Cleveland murder suspects and the missing Tennessee girl. As the operation continues, Daniels said he expects to have up to 50 missing children and 50 wanted criminals featured on the website.
The newspaper searches can be more focused, Daniels said.
"I'm an avid newspaper reader, and I've often wondered why we didn't look for criminals on a daily basis through the local newspapers," Daniels said. "There's at least one, sometimes two, newspapers in most cities."
The organization will feature three photos and information in newspaper advertisements: a missing child, a violent criminal from a pool of a state's "Top 10 Most Wanted" list and either a violent criminal or missing child sought by authorities in the area where the newspaper is published. Phone numbers for local police seeking information will be published, along with the address and phone number for USAPB.
Police investigators, through talking to family members or friends, usually have a general idea where a wanted criminal might have headed. The same might also be true of children taken by parents in custody disputes. But unless they have a specific address or sighting, the local police may not know where to look, Daniels said.
"We will have the ability to go after people and put out their pictures in specific areas as large as we want, including the entire nation," Daniels said. "If we get information that a criminal we are looking for is in Texas, within 12 hours, every daily newspaper in Texas can have that picture."
The organization is asking newspapers to donate or discount the cost of the space for the search advertisements, but the group will cover the entire cost, as needed, Daniels said.
For that reason, USAPB also is asking for individual and corporate donations. For more information call a toll free number at 1-888-FUND APB or write the United States All Points Bulletin at P.O. Box 6058, Champaign, Ill., 61826-6058.

Although Cayce Lynn McDaniel has been missing for exactly nine years today, members of the Double Springs Cumberland Presbyterian Church still believe in grace and the power of prayer.

''We just can't lose faith in the fact that God is still in charge,'' said Bill Welch, one of the church's elders.

And that will be the focus going into tonight's ''Remembering Cayce Lynn McDaniel'' service at the Milan church. A vigil has been held each year since Cayce, 14, was last seen entering her home on U.S. 45 in Milan, on Aug. 16, 1996. This year's service will be complete with singers; words from Cayce's best friend, Amber Hansen; an update on the case's status and words of encouragement from the church's pastor, Russell Little.

''God is still there,'' he said. ''He can still meet our needs in the midst of tragedy.''

Cayce's mom, Cindy McDaniel Bolton, plans to attend the service and says that it never gets easier.

''People ask me if I think about her, and I look at them like they're crazy,'' she said. ''Not a day goes by that I don't think about her.''

Even though so much time has passed, Bolton's son, Jesse Davenport, is still having a hard time with his sister's disappearance.

''It's hard to watch him,'' Bolton said. ''If anything, it is getting harder for him as he gets older.''

Jesse is almost 18.

Bolton believes the feeling of helplessness is the thing that is making it harder for her family. Little thinks it's something more.

''The problem is that there is no closure,'' he said. ''It leaves a wound that still needs attending.''

Milan Police Assistant Chief Tim Wright said there is no new evidence in Cayce's case, but some prior evidence has been brought up again.

Bolton said that she and her friends, as well as police, are working on a few things.

''You know you always run into a brick wall, and it feels like you're picking at it with a toothpick,'' she said. ''But we're still picking, and we will continue to do so.''

By TONYA SMITH-KING

MILAN - The words Phelicia Morris sang here Tuesday night at Double Springs Cumberland Presbyterian Church evoked strong emotion.

The 50 or more people who listened had gathered for an annual candlelight vigil in memory of Cayce Lynn McDaniel. McDaniel disappeared at age 14 and has been missing for nine years.

Morris could relate to the feelings of McDaniel's family and friends. Her mother, Janie Sue Lindsey, has been missing since Oct. 10. She was last seen at about 6 p.m. at a gas station in the vicinity of the 100 block of Veterans Drive North in Huntingdon.

Soft sobbing and sniffling could be heard among the audience as Morris sang, ''I Will Find You Again.'' Cayce's grandmother, Margaret Smith, sat with an arm around Cayce's mother, Cindy Bolton. Bolton sat sobbing, a hand over her month, her head lowered.

''If I have to knock on every mansion door, walk miles of golden streets ...,'' Morris sang. ''I will run along the jasper walls, call your name upon the wind. I will find you again.''

Morris, who lives in Gibson County, distributed fliers about her mother's disappearance before the service. She spoke briefly during the service, asking for the audience's prayers.

''You never think anything like this will happen to you,'' she said.

The news of a second Gibson County family with a missing family member has prompted the church to start a support group for people with missing loved ones. The church's pastor, Russell Little, was not certain when those meetings would start.

''The best comfort comes from those who've gone through a similar experience,'' Little said during the service.

Cayce was last seen entering her home on U.S. 45 in Milan on Aug. 16, 1996. She'd attended Double Springs. The church has held a vigil for her each year since her disappearance.

Her best friend, Amber Hansen, spoke briefly of their friendship and invited others who knew her to say a few words.

Mike Fitzgerald recalled never having seen a frown on Cayce's face.

''If you were in a bad mood, you wouldn't be in a bad mood long around her,'' said Fitzgerald, an elder at Double Springs.

Chief Deputy Chuck Arnold of the Gibson County Sheriff's Department also gave an update on their investigation into Cayce's disappearance.

There have been at least three leads since last year's vigil, he said. None were fruitful.

The Sheriff's Department has been partnering with Milan police on the case, Arnold said. The case is still active and is still being discussed at investigators' meetings, he added.

One promising factor is that after all these years, police continue to get leads, no matter how small, Arnold said.

''One of these days, it's going to be the one we need,'' Arnold said.

xx Rally set today for missing persons
« Reply #7 on: Jun 14th, 2006, 08:09am »

A Rally for the Missing - specifically Janie Sue Grooms Lindsey and Cayce Lynn McDaniel - will be held at 4 p.m. today at M&M Farm & Garden Supply, 6040 N. First St. in Milan.

Along with local advocates, members of the Community United Effort Center, a Wilmington, N.C., group focused on issues of lost and missing persons, will be there to raise awareness of the issue on a local and national basis. CUE Center is on a 25-stop tour through 11 states, including the cities of Milan and Madison in Middle Tennessee.

Lindsey, 56, has been missing since Oct. 10, 2004, when she was last seen at a gas station in the vicinity of Veterans Drive North in Huntingdon.
McDaniel has been missing since Aug. 16, 1996. She was 14 at the time, and last seen entering her home in Milan.

A release of balloons, carrying fliers seeking information about Lindsey and McDaniel, will end the rally.

xx Cayce: 10 years missing
« Reply #8 on: Aug 16th, 2006, 08:49am »

By PETE WICKHAM

They'll get together tonight at Double Springs Cumberland Presbyterian Church, as they have every year for the past nine years. But all who come wish to God they didn't have to be here, now or in the first place.

It is a collection of frayed nerves, rubbed-raw emotions, spent energy and broken hearts that will come, say prayers, light candles and ask God once again for an answer to the whereabouts of Cayce McDaniel.
It was 10 years ago tonight that then 14-year-old Cayce was dropped off at her house following a church back-to-school party, and was never heard from again. Her family and friends will gather at 7 p.m. at the church to remember.

Whether she never got to 15, or is a 24-year-old runaway somewhere, is the biggest thing that eats at her mother, Cindy McDaniel Bolton.
"There's no day that goes by when I don't think about her," McDaniel Bolton said.

Thinking about what's happened to her daughter's friends breaks her down, again.

"They're in college, getting married, having babies ..." she said through sobs Monday. "And we still don't know."

One of Cayce's best friends growing up, Amber Treadwell Hansen, and her husband, Mark, have an infant daughter. As she cares for the baby, Hansen's thoughts often wander to what might have been.

"All those milestones in high school - ballgames, proms," said Hansen, now a surgical technician living in Jackson, "I would have loved to have Cayce be part of that, to have been in my wedding, share our lives now ..."

In some ways, Hansen said, "you move on, because that's what happens. With time it's supposed to get better."

But she adds, "It never really gets better until you know something. It leaves time and space for your mind to wander. "

As he prays for some change in the stalemate for this hurting group, church pastor Russell Little will remind them of truths that don't change.

"God feels our sorrow. Jesus wept and weeps with us," said Little, who came to this congregation three years ago. "We'll pray for something to happen in the upcoming year that will bring this to closure. That there is no closure is what makes this more difficult than a death."

In a small corner of her soul, McDaniel Bolton said, "you never, ever lose hope that she's going to come home - then there's reality as well."

Either way, she said, "we're just trying to find her."

Milan Police Chief Ken Nolan was a sergeant, and incoming Gibson County Sheriff Chuck Arnold a chief deputy, when the case first broke.

Sometime soon they'll sit down and assign one man apiece to go over the small mountain of information and dead ends one more time.

"Maybe we'll find something we missed," Arnold said.

Nolan said, "We did it one other time four years ago. You get other information and new clues as time goes by."

McDaniel Bolton also lives with the scars it's left on her son, 18-year-old Jesse Davenport.

"He has a hard time with anger issues," she said. "He's working around town, but has had a hard time with it. People talk about it, say things that may or may not be true, and he's always been there feeling he has to stand up for me or the family."

McDaniel Bolton said that outgoing Sheriff Joe Shepard has been her closest ally in this whole ordeal. She's had varying degrees of run-ins with various law enforcement agencies, and no less than an aide to "missing persons guru" John Walsh has told her "you don't burn any bridge with anybody, so I try and keep my mouth closed."

Nolan said simply, "There are times Cindy gets aggravated with us, but ... you understand how she's feeling."

Both men say this is one of the tough nights on the calendar for them.

"You can tell by looking in the faces of people that they're tired of coming out," Arnold said. "They want an answer, and deserve one. And we haven't been able to give them one."

The ordeal has spawned a larger ministry within the church, a support group for those with missing relatives and friends.

It started with McDaniel Bolton. Then came Phelicia Morris, whose mother, Janie Sue Grooms-Lindsey, has been missing since October 2004.

"As we reached out we found others in the area who are going through the same thing. Their loved one may not have disappeared here, but they feel the pain and want closure as well," said Bill Welch, a church elder who has been involved with the group. "It's the way we're taught in the Bible to reach out to people."

But what they'll pray for more than anything else tonight is somebody's conscience.

"Somebody knows something, and hopefully their conscience gets heavy enough it will come out," Arnold said. "After this much time, sadly, that's probably what's going to break this case."
