Jerice Hunter was arrested on disappearance of her daughter Jahessye

(Glendale Police Sergeant Brent) Coombs said investigators do not believe they will find the girl alive and that Hunter 'is our number one focus.'

Well yes odds are that after 3.5 hours the child will not be found alive. But, Jahessye has been missing for a month so why now?

 Police have said they believed Jahessye wandered from her apartment in Glendale, a Phoenix suburb, while Hunter was running an errand. The girl's three older siblings were the last to see her.

But then why did the police feel a need to serve a second search warrant today? What can they hope to find now, almost a month later?

 Hunter's apartment was surrounded by police tape today as investigators in white jumpsuits searched inside. Coombs said authorities served their second search warrant on the residence.

And then consider this,

 Police have repeatedly said they had no evidence, suspects or promising leads

Then think about this,

 In the days following Jahessye's disappearance, more than 100 officers and volunteers searched for her in pools, garbage bins and shrubs. They interviewed and searched the homes of registered sex offenders in the area, and stopped at every door to spread news about the missing girl.

Police also cordoned off an area of a local landfill where garbage from Jahessye's neighbourhood would have been taken the day of and day after her disappearance, but have not searched it.

A 100 officers doesn't seem like all that many to me, how about you? And the police cordoned off part of a landfill, and simply let it set for a month? Is there intention to condemn this woman by innuendo? Is this how one preserves evidence?

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The police here arrested the mother of a missing 5-year-old girl on a child abuse charge on Monday and said they believed she might have played a role in the disappearance of the girl, Jhessye Shockley, who they said was presumed dead.

The mother, Jerice Hunter, was not charged with the girl’s disappearance, which has attracted national attention, but the police in this Phoenix suburb said that information they uncovered in the last week led them to believe that the girl was probably no longer alive and that her mother was somehow involved. A search of a landfill in the area may take place soon, the police said.

“Yes, she’s our No. 1 focus,” Sgt. Brent Coombs, a spokesman for the Glendale Police Department, said of Ms. Hunter at a crowded news conference, adding that investigators believe she “played a key role” in Jhessye’s disappearance.


So police arrested the mother on "child abuse" charges, and believe the child is dead, and the mother is involved with the child's disappearance... But do NOT charge her with the disappearance.... Does that then indicate that the abuse is other than neglect, permitting her child to be unsupervised? More charges yet to come? And more than a month later the police may search the landfill?
