But the parents should own the ultimate responsibility in this. I cannot imagine a parent that would allow an 11 year old girl to run around unsupervised......

I'd hardly characterize what she was doing as "running around unsupervised." She could have been mere blocks from her house and was walking home from a friend's. Big deal. It's not like she was out at 3 a.m. cruising the interstate. If this is typical suburbia, there's nothing unusual about an 11-yr-old walking home for a slumber party, nor should there be. Blame the right perp here, the psycho who took her. The parents are not at fault.

Can you verify she was a couple blocks away? Then again this has nothing to do with the FACT that these parents should HAVE supervised the return of their CHILD. Even if she were only a couple blocks away the parents should have told her either stay there we will come get you or my head is out the door looking for her. Please people this is a child 11 years old in a crazy world. This is not rocket science.
