    We had a visit from the local police very late last night. We were told the family is 'in protective custody' pending a 'criminal investigation'. We were asked (told) emphatically not to jeopardize their safety by making further attempts to contact them, not to have anyone else try to contact them. Right now they are being cared for and will be home as soon as this investigation is over . . . weird. But, what else can we do but sit and pray and turn it over. We were assured that they are not being held for any 'wrong-doing' - that they are being 'protected'. I asked about getting clothing to them and was told we'd be contacted if they needed anything further from us.

    So what have they seen or heard?

    Keep the prayers going.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    This just gave me chills Sandy. At least now you know they're safe. What took the police so long to fill you in? Yeesh! Will continue the prayers. PLEASE take care of YOU Sandy. This is bound to be taking a toll on you......

    So glad to get an update. Talk about answering the question as to their whereabouts but causing an endless list of other questions. Goodness! Praying for all of you. Strange that they also had to take the dog with them...

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I am so relieved right now, that you finally know they are safe, and such!
    WOOHOO!
    The rest will follow....
    And I TRUST the bad guys will be caught.
    I really need to get off the exclamation point.
    It may give people the idea that I'm bright and cheerful all the time....

    Thanks for the update! We had a similar situation ( nothing as drastic as a complete disappearance of an entire family!). In this case, the less we knew the safer we were. You could be in danger yourselves if you knew more. I hope it all gets resolved quickly, and they return safe. And that you and Al are safe also. More prayers for you!

    glad to hear there is a reason for all this, but it still is worrisome. What could they possibly have seen or heard to put them in that kind of danger.

    WOW! I can't believe that someone couldn't have let you known before days of worry! So glad that they are safe, but sorry that they are not home with you. How scary! I thought stuff like this did happen only on tv~! So many questions and wondering how long this investigation will take! So heart breaking, but at least you know they are being protected. The stories will all be told in their own time.....but that is not comforting for now! We will continue to pray for you, Al, and each of them!
