3 Year Old Dominick Arceneaux Missing From Front Yard. Update 2-18-09


What is happening to our most precious resource, our nation's children? While the search for five year old Haleigh Cumming continues in Florida LINK, the FBI has requested the help of the public in finding a missing three year old boy, Dominick Arceneaux. Dominick was last seen by an aunt Tuesday in Chidester, Arkansas. The FBI unsuccessfully searched nearby White Oak Lake. Authorities have interviewed sex offenders in area. They have also spoken with the boy's father. No one at this point has been ruled out as a possible suspect.

Dominick Wesley Arceneaux was last seen Tuesday afternoon in the front yard of a mobile home in Chidester, in south-central Arkansas. Dominick is 3 feet tall, weighs 38 pounds and has brown hair and eyes. National Guardsmen have done a grid search covering a one-mile radius around the home and are currently expanding it to a two-mile radius. The investigation includes talking to patrons of a bar next to the mobile home where Dominick lived with his mother.
Anyone with any information, please call the FBI hot line, 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324).
In another child snatching, the perpetrator has been caught. A crocodile was identified snatching and eating Jeremy Doble, a five-year-old boy in Australia. Jeremy Doble's remains were discovered in the stomach of a four-meter long crocodile. Jeremy vanished while walking with his seven-year-old brother on February 8. Jeremy disappeared into a swamp behind his home. His brother, Ryan, watched the ordeal in horror. Lets hope for a better fate for Haleigh and Dominick.

Legal Pub,
Thanks for running this story. I have been following the story on katfishponders for a week now, trying to encourage some national media outlets to pickup this story. Dominick went missing the same day as Haleigh Cummings in FL.(she was taken at 2:30 a.m. and Dominick at 2:30 p.m.)
Now that a nationwide Amber alert has been issued perhaps they will pay attention.

Members of the FBI's Child Abduction Rapid Deployment (CARD) teams have been deployed to the area. The CARD teams usually investigation non-family child abductions, ransom child abductions, and mysterious disappearances of children.

The early investigation focused on the lake and surrounding area, interviews with neighbors and with registered sex offenders in the area.

You guys are the best!

Ouachita County Sheriff's Department says that they found a small child's body that matches his description, but they are waiting for positive identification.
The body was found in White Oak Lake about 200-300 yards from where Arceneaux was last seen. Members of the search and rescue team found the body at about 11:45 a.m.

Thanks to anyone who assisted in getting media coverage for Dominick. HLN did run a few reports on the case today before he was found. :,-(

Katfish, I know L.P. is happy he could help. CNN has folks that listen.
