    I guess the people here follow the news closer. Most of the people I've talked to today did not know about this.

    I would have thought that something like this would get a lot more coverage.

    A missing blonde girl get's raging coverage from they Nancy Grace's so much so that main stream news and pundits feel they have to pick it up and mention it. This isn't a whodunit finger pointing... it's live and happening right freegin' now. I can't believe they aren't all over this drama with media bugging the cops to let them put a live feed wire camera down the pvc pipe.

    This seems to be a "Ruby Ridge" of sorts.

    I suppose pumping the bunker with anesthetics would work - it would be risky because it could potentially kill both.
    The amount needed to drop the man would kill the kid.

    That is why I hate the media. This story doesn't sell, but when they realize it will (like if the boy is killed) I promise you they will go nuts with it (gun control, mental healthcare, drama, police failure, etc.) when they realize it will sell.

    This is not so far from home for me. It is really sad. I am wondering if they can dig quietly with shovels down to the tunnel. Might require a media black out in case he has a tv or something.

    Latest news I could find on the Alabama shooting - 4 hours ago - see video news here:

    Alabama Boy, 5, Held Hostage in Underground Bunker After Bering Abducted on School BUs | Video - ABC News

    5 year old Ethan is still being held hostage, and they explain why they have been keeping negotiations under the vest.

    We are now in Day 3 of the hostage situation with no new updates. It is still a complete stalemate.

    Our local news passes along updates a bit faster than the national media. You can look here...

    I think the lack of updates and information is being requested by the police, because they know he has a TV and don't want him to hear anything that could affect their negotiations. I'm hoping they are making progress and just can't say anything yet.
