EMMA MAE SEARS - 14 yo - Fort Smith AR

Post by TomTerrific0420 on Fri Jul 13, 2012 12:18 pm





Local authorities and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are looking for an endangered runaway.

Emma Mae Sears, 14, of Fort Smith, was last seen on July 4 after
going to visit her boyfriend and his family in Winslow, according to her
mom, Angela Smither.

“I just want her home. That’s it. I want my baby home,” said Smither as she looked at her daughter’s missing poster.

“I talked to her July 4th. I’d seen her earlier that day,” said
Smither, who continued on to say that Emma wanted to go watch fireworks
with friends in Winslow.

Later that night, Sears called her mom and asked her if it would be okay if she went with those friends to Missouri.

Smither told her daughter no, and that she needed to come home that night.

Sears never came back home.

Smither told 5NEWS she thinks Emma got in the car with her friends
and her 19-year-old boyfriend, who she didn’t know about until after
Emma went missing.

Smither says following her daughter’s disappearance, she has received
texts from the boyfriend’s family that make her believe her daughter is
in danger.

One text, sent July 5th, reads: ‘You’ve gotta be here to enjoy this’, sent from a member of the boyfriend’s immediate family.

“I still (haven’t) figured out what that one meant. I can’t wrap my head around that one at all,” said Smither.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is investigating.

The FBI has been brought into the case since there is reason to
believe the missing teen has crossed state lines into Missouri, said Lt.
Emily Augustine. The teen is believed to be in Southern Missouri in or
near the towns of Monett and Cassville, Augustine said.

She is apparently in the company of acquaintances, Augustine said.

“She’s possibly endangered,” Augustine said.

The Morgan Nick Foundation and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children has posted images and information about the girl online.

If you have any information on the girl’s whereabouts call the Washington County Sheriff’s Office at (479) 444-5700.

Two Missourians Arrested in Connection with Missing Arkansas Teen

By: KNWA, Fayetteville Arkansas
Updated: July 18, 2012

FORT SMITH, Ark. -- Two people from Newton County, Missouri have been arrested in connection with the disappearance of a Ft. Smith teen.

According to the Washington County Sheriff's Office, 14-year-old Emma Sears was last seen by her parents on July 4th in Winslow.

39-year-old Deborah Dunmire and her boyfriend, 38-year-old Brian Reichard, both from Granby, Missouri, were arrested Monday for giving investigators false statements about when they last saw Sears.

According to Court Documents, On July 4th, Sears was at a home in Winslow with her 19-year-old boyfriend Wayne Dunmire, Deborah Dunmire, who is Wayne's mother, and Brian Reichard. Sears' parents were also present.

The arrest report states that the Dunmires asked Sears' mother, Angela Smither, if they could take her to Missouri with them.

Smither advised that she did not want Sears traveling across state lines with the Dunmires.

Witnesses reported seeing Sears leave the area in a blue passenger car with the Dunmires and Reichard.

Smither told investigators she called Sears' cell phone later that evening asking her to return to Ft. Smith.

Sears told Smither that the group was in Little Rock and would return within a few hours.

A week later, FBI and Washington County investigators interviewed Deborah Dunmire and Brian Reichard at their home in Missouri in reference to Emma Sears' whereabouts.

They both stated they last saw Sears on July 4th when they dropped her off at a creek in West Fork.

They said they then drove back to Missouri with Wayne Dunmire and dropped him off at a Walmart in Cassville, Missouri before returning home to Granby, Missouri themselves.

Washington County Deputies subpoenaed Sears' cell phone records which placed her phone in Granby, Missouri when she spoke to her mother on July 4th.

Information from Brian Reichard's cell phone records also placed him in Granby, Missouri around the time of the call.

The phone records contradicted Dunmire and Reichard's statements that they left Sears in West Fork.

Based on the cell phone records, Deborah Dunmire and Brian Reichard were arrested and each charged with a count of Interfering with the custody of a minor for unlawfully keeping Sears away from her mother.

A warrant was also issued for Wayne Dunmire, but he has not been arrested.

Deborah Dunmire and Brian Reichard have been released on bond.

Sears is still considered missing. Washington County investigators believe she may now be in the Kansas City, Kansas area.

Sears has dyed strawberry blonde or orange hair with blue highlights. She weighs about 100 pounds, 5'3" and has blue eyes. She has a heart tattoo on one hip and her ears are pierced.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Washington County Sheriff's Office 479-444-5703.

14 years old and she has a tattoo? Hope the girl is OK but she needs some boundaries and discipline.

Missing Teen Located, Boyfriend Arrested

The boyfriend of a missing River Valley girl was arrested on a charge of interference with custody Sunday.

Wayne Dunmire, 19, of Lee Summit, Mo., was booked into the Washington
County Detention Center on a $20,000 bond. His girlfriend, Emma Sears,
14, of Fort Smith, was placed into the custody of Arkansas Department of
Human Services after the two turned themselves in to the Washington
County Sheriff’s Office, according to Kelly Cantrell with the Washington
County Sheriff’s Office.

Sears was reported missing July 4 after she never returned from watching fireworks with friends and Dunmire in Winslow, according to her mother.

I am glad Emma was found alive and hope she gets the help she needs. I also hope that the adults that aided and abetted her disappearance are fully prosecuted.
