More Than 16 Weeks Later Aliayah Lunsford Still Missing

It has been more than 16 weeks since Aliayah Lunsford was first reported missing from her Bendale home, and there still isn't any sign of her.

Since then, community members who've never met the three year-old, have made it clear that their not losing faith. Some have started the "Aliayah's Law" petition online to protect missing and abused children. Others continue to protest and beg Aliayah's parents for help.

A recent picture released on the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children's website has many up in arms.

Folks say a bruise has been photo shopped off of the missing toddlers face. We've called the center, but they have yet to call back.

Police say they're investigating her disappearance as a crime but have still not named any suspects.

Suspicious Finding in Bendale Dam Prompts Water Search for Aliayah Lunsford

A dive team was out searching in a dam near Aliayah Lunsford's Bendale home after volunteers in a search group say they found something in the water.

Aliayah's Army has continued the volunteer searches of the area after PPP Recovery left. On Tuesday, members were sent out around 10:30 a.m. to clear some more areas, including the Bendale dam, which is behind the former home of Aliayah's parents, Lena and Ralph Lunsford.

The volunteers have been following leads and searching certain areas for the past few weeks. They say this dam has been a point of interest because it's so close to where Aliayah disappeared.

Volunteers had the dam lowered so they could take out a boad and an underwater camera. They found "something" around 2:30 Tuesday afternoon.

The volunteers aren't allowed to specify exactly what they found. They alerted authorities, according to protocol, who took over the search.

Heavy Rain Delays Search for Aliayah Lunsford

Wednesday's heavy rains kept divers searching for remains that could be those of Aliayah Lunsford out of the West Fork River Wednesday.

Divers couldn't resume the search Thursday either because of high water and flooding.

Aliayah's Army said its member spotted something suspicious in an underwater photograph on Tuesday.

FBI says intruder didn't take missing W.Va. child

The FBI has a working theory about what happened to a 3-year-old Lewis County girl who vanished six months ago, and it doesn't involve a break-in.

Supervisory agent John Hambrick wouldn't say during a press conference Thursday what investigators believe happened to Aliayah Lunsford or whether they think she's still alive. Nor would Hambrick name a suspect, predict when an arrest might be made or offer any details about the ongoing investigation.

Asked about persons of interest, he said only: "It's a small universe.''

Hambrick did, however, seek to assure residents of north-central West Virginia that they need not fear for their own children's safety, saying investigators have ruled out the notion that Aliayah was taken by an intruder.

"The initial concerns of somebody slipping in and taking Aliayah, a break-in -- we found no evidence of that,'' Hambrick said. "We were not able to develop that as a theory.''

Aliayah disappeared from her Lewis County home on Sept. 24, 2011, and there has been no sign of her since. Her mother, Lena Lunsford, told police her daughter was in bed at 6:30 a.m. but was gone when she checked on her a few hours later.

Last week, Lena Lunsford's attorney said his client believes there is no way her daughter wandered off. He also said she was cooperating with investigators and "is convinced that no blood relative of Aliayah knows what has happened to her.''

Asked whether Lunsford believes a non-blood relative may have been involved in the disappearance, attorney Mike Woelfel told The Associated Press, "She doesn't know what has happened to Aliayah.''

Lena has recently filed for divorce from her husband, Ralph Keith Lunsford. She's been living at her mother's house for months and is currently awaiting sentencing for federal welfare fraud.

In a hearing on that case last fall, Ralph Lunsford suggested he's been the focus of some scrutiny. He told a judge he'd "been questioned by authorities day after day for the last month or two.''

Hambrick wouldn't say Thursday if Ralph Lunsford is a suspect or if investigators are still talking to him.

Lena Lunsford, meanwhile, pleaded guilty in January to selling $114 worth of credit on her food stamp card for $50 cash. She had been indicted on multiple counts in October, accused of swapping for cash five times in two months.

Candle Lighting Ceremony to Mark Seven Months Since Aliayah's Disappearance




Just days after a memorial candle lighting for lost ones in Lewis County, extended family members of Aliayah Lunsford are planning another one in her honor.

In two weeks, Aliayah will have been reported missing 7 months ago. Therefore, on the night of the 24, extended family will hold a candle lighting ceremony at 7 p.m. at the State Road Parking Lot in Bendale.

Since the three year old was reported missing, no one has been named a suspect and investigators won't say if they believe she is still alive. They have a working theory but won't elaborate on it.

Aliayah Lunsford - Seven Months Missing




Tuesday marks seven months since she was first reported missing. While time has passed, many still think of the little girl every day.

It was a Saturday in September that Aliayah's mother first called 911 to say she couldn't find her daughter. Since that day, thousands of people have came in and out of Bendale to find the little girl.

The sheriff's department was the first to look into the missing person case but the investigation quickly grew to include the State Police and the FBI. To this day, after thousands of hours of searching and investigation not much has been released to the public about what may have happened. Federal investigators say that no one broke into the house to take her. They will say there's a working theory but there's no details on what that may be. A small universe of people are being looked a but no one is officially called a suspect.

They can still use your help if you have any information about what could have happened. You're asked to call the West Virginia Fusion Center at 304-558-6592 . This is the number to report information on Aliayah's case. If you're trying to report another crime, call your local police department.

Aliayah Lunsford Missing Eight Months; Vigil Held in Bendale

Members of the community were along side some family members of Aliayah Lunsford Thursday evening, showing their support in the effort to bring home the little girl.

Thursday marks eight months since she was first reported missing from her Bendale home in Lewis County. Folks held a candlelight vigil and a balloon launch to make sure she's not forgotten. They passed out purple wrist bands which say "Pray For Aliayah" and has the date she went missing, September 24, 2011.

Since that September day, thousands of people have come from all over the county, searching any and everywhere for signs of Aliayah. Investigators say they've looked into almost 150 tips they've received from the public. They have video evidence gathered from homes and businesses which has helped them come up with a working theory on what happened to the little girl, but haven't said what that theory could be. Aliayah's aunt says they'll never give up looking and will never forget about Aliayah.

"We wanted to make sure nobody forgets about her and to let her know that we're still here and we're not giving up. We'll be here until we bring her home," said Tina Smith, Aliayah's aunt.

Law Enforcement Continues to Investigate Tips In Aliayah Lunsford's Disappearance

Monday, September 25 marked one year since now 4-year-old Aliayah Lunsford, a Bendale, Lewis County resident, disappeared.

The FBI and the West Virginia State Police continue to receive information and follow through investigating tips, although the tips haven't been able to help investigators get across the finish line and determine what happened to Lunsford, said FBI Special Agent John Hambrick on Wednesday.

The FBI has a working theory of what happened and it continues to pursue that theory, said Hambrick, although investigators have not seen any major advancements in the case in the last sixty days.

The FBI is still offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in this case.

If you have any information, call the W.Va. Fusion Center at 866-WV-WATCH
