Their daughter is snatched, asleep in her bed. The town is rife with talk that their lifestyle may have cost them the child. A familyís nightmare .

Feb. 18 issue ó Itís been 10 days since 7-year-old Danielle van Dam went missing. The blonde, blue-eyed Girl Scout was last seen on the night of Feb. 1, comfy in her blue-flowered pjís as her father tucked her into bed on the second floor of the familyís loft-style house, snug in a California suburb. When her mother went to wake her the next morning, little Danielle was nowhere to be found.

That's what I think too. Ew! Mother has stated she brought friends home. Plural. Someone, one of her *friends* - strangers from the bar, where she was looking for...you know...., someone probably snuck around the house while mommy was busy, and found a sleeping blonde girl and abducted her into a car. I don't want to think about this.

Nothing like unsubstantiated innuendo to fuel a story like this. The posted story already is wrong, the tow-truck driver has already changed his story.

The Van Dams were on Larry King and basically admitted didn't deny they are swingers........

Sounds like one of the couples swing partner took off with the kid.

How did you make the leap from admission to be swingers to "one of the partners took the kid." Please explain.

well, that's what rick roberts said. roberts has one issue on his radio show...child abuse, which leads one to wonder if he was abused as a kid while living at his grandparents.

rick got his tip on swinging couples, he said, friday, from a high level detective.

hildy's right. most of the stuff on the news here is unsubstantiated.

today the san diego soviet union tribune gave the story a break and went with the fallbrook fires, another voyeurism.

Many good comments posted in this earlier article. The real story might be even more sordid than this article indicates.

From her comments on the other thread, one can only suppose that Hildy approves of all this, and considers it a lifestyle choice rather than a danger to the children in the household. Which is probably how the little girl got abucted.

He's probably so disgusted that he can't believe it. Larry rarely asks hardball questions.

I'll guess that the neighbor was spurned by the mom - and he didn't take rejection from a slut well, so he took the child knowing the parents were otherwise occupied.

He just can't understand trying to get along with more than one woman at a time...call him a serial monogamist. Heck, call him a taxi.
