Recent photo of Baby Levon who has last seen alive over six weeks ago

Levon Wameling has been missing for over six weeks. He was last seen at his home in Utica, New York on the night of May 29, 2013.

According to reports, Utica Police were notified when an attorney contacted them informing them that Levon’s father, Jevon Wameling, 27, left the child on his Jay Street front porch at 11:30PM on May 29th while he went around to unlock the back door, and when he got into the house and opened the front door, Levon was gone.

It was only after 2 weeks, on June 11, 2013 when the child’s mother and Levon’s stepfather confronted Jevon that he claimed the baby was missing and possibly kidnapped.

Utica police and New York State Police K-9 units spent hours searching the streets and wooded areas around 748 Jay St. for any clues about what happened to Levon but so far have come up empty. They have asked others to NOT form search parties while the investigation is underway.

Levon was last seen wearing only a diaper according to his father. He is now 11-months old and his whereabouts remain unknown.

Levon Wameling – Missing Baby is a Facebook created which has already received 568 likes. The family of Levon Wameling is asking the public to please ‘like’ and ‘share’ the Facebook page in hopes that somebody who saw something will remember and speak up.

Paige Aiello, NJ College Student Missing Since Tuesday After Her Purse Was Found On The George Washington Bridge

paige-aielloPaige Aiello, 22, is a college senior who had been working two jobs and preparing to attend Rutgers Law School this fall when she suddenly went missing three days ago.

The honor student was last seen Tuesday March 9, 2013 by her father, Christopher Aiello and about two hours later her mother noticed her vehicle had been taken without her permission. Authorities said the car was found at a parking garage near a train station in a New Brunswick and later that same night her purse and car keys were discovered by a passerby on the south walkway of the George Washington bridge in NYC, which has her parents very worried. They have tried reaching her on her mobile phone numerous times to no avail.

‘Please get a phone,’ Christopher Aiello said ‘Call because we need you and want to see you again.’

Paige had recently moved back to her parents home to be with her family after struggling to deal with stress of her busy schedule, her family said. Her father believes her 22nd birthday, which was to be celebrated yesterday, could be a motive to her disappearance.

‘With her birthday coming and with the fact that she was distraught, [maybe] she just wanted to be missing and not celebrate during this time,’ Mr Aiello told NBC. ‘I really don’t know what to think.’

He also said that his daughter was the captain of the school’s woman’s tennis team and described her as being a ‘high achiever” and was dealing with alot of stress prior to her disappearance.

“She has been all-conference and has been accepted into approximately nine law schools for next year,” he said. “It’s maybe just too much.”

“She had hit almost like a wall where she felt she was not maybe either worthy of all this or she just couldn’t handle it. So the message that at least I’ve been saying all day is not only do we have to be watching our children that are not doing well and getting in trouble but we have to see and watch the kids that are the over-achievers. They have a self-imposed stress,” Aiello said. “She did express stress.”

NYPD have scanned the water below the bridge but have so far found no trace of the missing student. Christopher Aiello said he had been briefed by the Port Authority Police Thursday afternoon that no witnesses had reported seeing anyone jumping from the bridge, which gives many hope that she will be found alive.

Paige is described as a White female with long brown hair, brown eyes and a thin frame. She appears to have light freckles on her face.

Scotia High School Teenager Goes Missing In 2004 After Leaving His Girlfriend’s Apartment Complex To Go Home

craig-frearFull Name: Craig Frear
Birthdate: Nov 14, 1986
Missing Date: 06/27/04
Missing From: Scotia, Schenectady County, NY
Age Then: 17
Age Now: 26
Race: White Sex: Male
Hair: Red Eyes: Brown
Weight: 190 lbs Height: 5’11″
Clothing: Last seen wearing blue jeans, a short-sleeved white shirt, white (Adidas)  sneakers with three black stripes

Photo above shows what Craig Frear looked like at age 17. He was several months away from his 18th birthday. Below is an age progressed photo showing what Craig may look like as a young man in his twenties.

frear-age-progression

Craig Frear, a Scotia High School Student, went to visit his new girlfriend at her mother’s Cambridge Manor Apartment in Scotia on the afternoon of June 27, 2004. He had driven to the apartment complex in a vehicle but when he left, he was seen walking into a wooded area near railroad tracks.

He hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

According to Craig’s brother, Matthew Frear, “He was last seen walking towards railroad tracks, and…in the direction of our house. He was never seen again.”

As the day wore on, his family became worried and went looking for Craig: “We had walked back in those woods later that day probably about 5 o’clock to see if maybe he had tripped or anything such as that,” his mother said.

“When the sun started going down, and friends were calling back, and nobody knew where he was…I really started getting scared,” said Veronica Frear, Craig’s mother.

The police were called and a local search yielded no clues. It’s as if he walked off into thin air. NYSPD, as well as Craig’s family, don’t believe he ran away nor do they believe he committed suicide.

“As far as the police are concerned if he had committed suicide then they would have found him by now.” said Mrs. Frear.

In the Fall of 2008, Lt. John Agresta of the New York State Police told WRGB that police believe Craig “did not run away or that he’s harmed himself. We believe some kind of harm has come to him.”

“The day my son went missing is etched in my brain.” “I had spoken to him on the phone…he was at a friend’s house…and he said that he was on his way home,” said Veronica Frear, in a 2011 interview with Crimesider.

NYSPD investigator Gloria Coppola told Crimesider that on the day he disappeared, Craig had argued with his mother on the phone after his parents found out he had lost his job – which Craig failed to tell them.  He told his mother he’d be home in 10 minutes but when he left his girlfriend’s apartment he walked away from where he’d parked his car. Coppola thinks Craig’s father may have been waiting for him at the car, and that Craig chose to walk in a different direction to avoid a confrontation.

It’s believed Craig wasn’t carrying any ID or form of identification, and nothing else belonging to him, including his clothing has turned up since that Summer day in 2004.

Craig’s parents have left his room untouched since his 2004 disappearance. He was a soccer player at Scotia High and in the photo you can see Veronica Frear looking at her missing sons possessions including a trophy he had won for his soccer achievements, Charleston chews, photos, a video game controller, a movie, and other typical items you would expect to see in a teenagers room. The Frear family hope that one day Craig will be able to come home.

A website, Missing Craig Frear, was set up to post articles and information on Craig’s disappearance.

unidenified_childEast River Jane Doe
Date of Birth: January 1, 1985 (not the actual birthdate but an estimation)
Date of Discovery: May 6, 2000
Estimated Age When Found: Between 12 and 18 years
Estimated Age As Of Now: 28
Sex: Female Race: White (Victim may also be Hispanic or of mixed ancestry)
Hair: Black Eye Color: Unknown
Height: 5’6″ Weight: Approx 150 lbs
City/State: NYC, New York

The skeletal remains of a child or young teenager were discovered floating in the East River located near 57th Street in New York City. Medical Examiners estimate her age as being between 12 and 18, and they believe she has been deceased for up to several months prior to discovery. She was found wearing dark-colored cargo pants, a Champion blue sports bra, blue boxer shorts, a t-shirt with a skunk printed on the front and the words “Perfect Thyroid” on the back (Perfect Thyroid is a local band originating in the Kingston, NY area.)

A photo of the shirt and pants can be seen in the left-hand bottom corner.

Due to the condition of the remains, some items in the composite – such as hairstyle and skin tone – are the artist’s estimations based on the description medical examiners gave and should NOT be the sole significant marker for identification.

NOTE: An unidentified individual located on US soil could be from anywhere around the world. Canada is closer to NY than California and it’s possible the victim was brought from up north. Child and females are the most targeted for abduction and/or human sex-trafficking and thousands of victims are smuggled into the US every year for profit. If you’re from another country don’t exclude the idea that this victim could be one of your own. Leave no stone unturned.

Two Similar Unsolved Cases of Unidentified Females Found In NY

These two cases are very similar. Both females were discovered in NY, both are Hispanic/Black woman, each with a similar tattoo on their breast, both murdered and unidentified, both with missing body parts when they were discovered. They were found ten years apart.

Victim One:

605UFNY

A small tattoo of two red cherries on a green stem above her right breast

  • Unidentified Hispanic or Black Female
  • The victim was discovered on March 3, 2007 in Mamaroneck, Westchester County, New York
  • Estimated Date of Death: Last week of February, 2007
  • State of Remains: Torso and two legs only
  • Estimated age: 35-50 years old
  • Approximate Height and Weight: 5’7″ – 6’1″; 180 – 200 lbs.
  • Other: The torso had a stab wound and belonged to a large woman.
  • Clothing: She was wearing gray Champion sweat pants, a tan or cream-colored long-sleeved shirt by Voice and a red camisole bearing Spanish-language labels.

A female torso inside a suitcase washed ashore at Harbor Island Park in Nassau County, New York on March 3, 2007. About three weeks later, the two legs were found a day apart — on March 21 off Cold Spring Harbor and March 22 off Cove Neck, along Nassau County’s Gold Coast. Each leg had pink toenail polish on some toes. DNA confirmed the legs and torso belonged to the same woman.

Since the torso floated onto the beach as storm-fed floods hit the region, authorities have said it could have come from almost anywhere.

The dark blue or black suitcase is sold exclusively at Wal-Mart stores. Police also found small scraps of paper tucked away in the crevices of the suitcase. When pieced together, it looks like a calendar with the Spanish word “cinco” and the phrase “begin to live.”

Victim Two:

unidentified_tattoo

A tattoo of a peach in the shape of a heart with a bite taken out of it and two drips falling from its core was located on her left breast.

  • Unidentified Black / Biracial Female
  • Located on June 28, 1997 in Lakeview, Nassau County, New York.
  • Estimated Date of Death: No more than 3 days
  • Cause of death was homicide
  • Estimated age: 16 – 30 years old
  • Approximate Height and Weight: Unknown
  • Scars/Marks: She had an abdominal scar, possibly from a caesarean section.

On June 28, 1997, a dismembered body was discovered in a wooded area of Hempstead Lake State Park, Lakeview, New York. Both arms, head, and legs below the knee were severed and have not been located. The torso was found on the west side of Lake Drive, about 200 yards north of Peninsula Boulevard.

She was found in a Rubbermaid container along with a red towel and a floral pillowcase.

With no leads to the woman’s identity, the police published a picture of the approximately two-inch wide tattoo in a national tattoo magazine, in the hopes of finding the artist who did the work. They received a call from a man in Connecticut who claimed he remembered giving the tattoo to a woman. The artist said he remembered the customer as a young black woman, about 18 or 19 years old, who was accompanied by two women, an aunt and a cousin. During the session, he also claimed she told him she was from either the Bronx or Long Island and that she was in Connecticut because having trouble with her boyfriend at the time. It is possible the woman had other tattoos on her arms or lower legs that the killer did not want found.

Murder Victim Dubbed “Princess Jane Doe” Found In Blairstown Cemetary in the Summer of 1982

princess-doe-unidentified

The identity of a young female discovered in Warren County, New Jersey on July 15, 1982 remains unknown over three decades later.

The unidentified female was given the name “Princess Jane Doe” after she was discovered in a wooded area in Blairstown Cemetary, Route 94, NJ. She had been beaten to death and medical examiners conclude her estimated time of death could have been up to several weeks prior to discovery. They also determined she wasn’t pregnant nor did she ever give birth. She had no drugs in her system at the time of her homicide.

The community was horrified that something like this could happen so close to home and saddened when nobody came forward to claim the body so they came together and raised the funds to give Princess Doe a proper burial and gravestone.

So many years have gone by and many believe Princess Doe wasn’t from the area due to the fact that nobody knows who she is. It’s possible she may even be from another Country which would explain why, despite thousands of people threw out the United States seeing her case, her identity remains a mystery. However, a witness did come forward saying she knew Princess Doe and that she lived in Long Island, NY and was estranged from her family.

Lt. Stephen Speirs of the Warren Co. Prosecutor’s Office has investigated Princess Doe’s case close for many years and had hoped to solve the mystery by July, 2007, which would have been the 25th anniversary of the discovery. But it’s now passing the 30th anniversary with just as many unanswered questions as there was 30 years ago.

Physical description: A young Caucasian female between 14-20 years of age with a thin frame. Eye color is unknown. When she was found she was wearing red nail polish on her right hand but no polish on her left, almost as if she started painting her nails but didn’t get to finish. Her left ear has two piercings, her right ear has an unknown amount of piercings.

Case Details:

Date Body Found: 07/15/82
Estimated Date of Death: 07/11/82
Estimated Age: 14 – 20 years (victim would be in her 40′s if she was still living today)

Hair: shoulder length brown hair

Weight: 90 – 100 pounds
Height: between 5’2” / 5’4”

Teeth: Lower anterior teeth are crowded (two of her front teeth were slightly darker than the rest of her teeth and her teeth also indicate she came from a middle-class background)

Clothing: A red V-neck pullover shirt with yellow piping on the front portion of the shoulder and blue and black piping around the neck, sleeves and waist. Victim was also wearing a red/white/blue print wrap-around skirt with a wide border print of peacocks on the lower portion.

Jewelry: A gold-colored chain with small white beads spaced evenly within the chain. Attached to the chain was a 14K gold cross with an ornate design.

01/16/13, OLD WESTBURY, NY — 20 years on, Katie Beers says kidnapping saved her

Being chained as a 10-year-old for more than two weeks in a coffin-size box in a suburban New York dungeon was, Katie Beers says 20 years later, “the best thing that happened to me” because it allowed her to escape a life of abuse.
On the 20th anniversary of her ordeal, Beers has co-written a book with a television reporter who covered her kidnapping. “Buried Memories: Katie Beers’ Story” (Title Town Publishing) has a happy ending.

Beers is now a 30-year-old married mother of two who earned a degree in business management and works in insurance sales near her home in rural Pennsylvania.
Her kidnapping attracted nationwide attention in early 1993, when revelations surfaced while she was still missing that she had suffered years of neglect from her mother and had been repeatedly sexually assaulted by her godmother’s husband since she was a toddler.
Beers was described in Dickensian terms back then — a louse-infested, filthy waif who had no friends and often was forced to lug the family’s laundry down the block or fetch cigarettes and junk food for her elders.

After kidnapper John Esposito, a family acquaintance, admitted to detectives on Jan. 13, 1993, that he had kidnapped Beers and showed them the dungeon where she was hidden for 17 days under his Bay Shore, N.Y., home, the little girl was placed in foster care and raised in a comfortable East Hampton home with four siblings.
Her foster parents not only imposed newfound discipline into her life, making her go to school regularly and do small chores around the house, but they also shielded Beers from intense media interest. And reporters largely complied with a parent-like plea from a prosecutor to leave her alone.

“We as a society must protect this child, or our professed love for own children is just a fraud, and our so-called compassion for each other is just a mockery,” said James Catterson, at the time the Suffolk County district attorney. Click here for full article….. (News.Yahoo)
