Should The State Continue Searching for Missing Girl in Rockport? [POLL]

Divers searched one week for Caleigh Anne Harrison, who went missing on Rockport's shore April 19.

State dive teams searched one week for missing 2-year-old Caleigh Anne Harrison.

The search was ended April 26, one week after off the Long Beach shore in Rockport. She was with her 4-year-old sister and the family dog, when her mother chased a ball that had gone over a fence. When she returned, Caleigh was missing.

Prevailing thought is she was swept out to sea, but the family thinks she may have been abducted. State investigators have no leads as to Caleigh’s whereabouts, and unless there are new clues as to where she went, the search will remain finished.

Should state investigators have stopped looking? They deployed teams of, at most, 20 divers and used all methods of technology to locate signs of the missing girl but found none.

Yes, the state should search for the little girl, but not in the ocean, I don't think she ever was on that beach that day.

yes they should look until they find her. If that was your child you'dnt you still search. get missing children involved.

I am under the impression that the little girl was left sitting with her 4 year old sister. Has the sister been asked about it by the parents or the police or social worker, etc.? She probably witnessed her going missing. What's up with that?

Of course they should continue to look for her, but maybe looking into different ideas of what could have happened. i think that theres a strong possibility that she was abducyed maybe they should start following up on that! May god be with her where ever she may be!!!

I was about 5, and we went to the Jersey Shore to hang out. The water was "dangerous" that day, and all were advised to stay out of the water. We did. I was picking up seashells and what not, about 6 ft. away from the water at the closest (wasn't even getting my feet wet). My parents were watching me, as well as other adults that were there. A wave came crashing in and just "took me". One second I was there, and the next I was GONE. I was in a rip-tide and didn't know up from down, etc. My father saw it, and went running. Anyway, he SOMEHOW found me in the mess and through me on shore before he was then sucked in. He was the strongest swimmer I have ever met TO THIS DAY, and he said that he almost didn't make it that day, and that it was a MIRACLE that he found me. My piont is, it's possible that the 4 year old didn't actually SEE what happened. She may not have realized that her sister was too close to the water (thinking as we did that the water couldn't come in "that close" to where we were). It happens that fast. That ball couldn't possibly have been worth enough for me to take my eyes off of my children for 1 MILLISECOND next to the water!!!

I believe this completely because I am a mom and this happened to my 2 yr old luckily I jumped into the water and grabbed her, and my husband came to our rescue. I still think of this whole incident with a shudder and know the forces of nature . I am very careful now going to the ocean with young kids.
