Thank you for writing to us! Although we receive hundreds of e-mails every day, we really and truly read them all, and your comments, suggestions, and questions are most welcome. Unfortunately, we can manage to answer only a small fraction of our incoming mail.
Our site covers many of the items currently being plopped into inboxes everywhere, so if you were writing to ask us about something you just received, our search engine can probably help you find the very article you want.
Choose a few key words from the item you're looking for and click here to go to the search engine.
(Searching on whole phrases will often fail to produce matches because the text of many items is quite variable, so picking out one or two key words is the best strategy.)
We do reserve the right to use non-confidential material sent to us via this form on our site, but only after it has been stripped of any information that might identify the sender or any other individuals not party to this communication.
Claim: A 2-year-old girl named Kaydance Bearden was kidnapped from her Arkansas home.
Example:[Collected via Facebook, September 2013]
ATTENTION EVERYONE!!! IF YOU SEE THIS BABY GIRL, CALL POLICE IMMEDIATELY!!!
Her name is Kaydance Bearden. She is my baby cousin and is only 2 years old! She was kidnapped sometime yesterday in the Saline/Pulaski county area and we need help finding her. PLEASE!!! She has blonde hair, blue eyes and weighs about 25 pounds. It is quite possible that the lady who took her is heading to Florida. Please, please, please share and spread the word. Help us find our little girl and bring her home safely!!!
Origins: This item claiming that a 2-year-old girl named Kaydance Bearden was kidnapped was posted by a Facebook user on 1 September 2013, with no details other than the girl's name and the mention of a general geographic area (Arkansas' Saline and Pulaski counties). We found no information about a girl named Kaydance Bearden other than postings of this same message — no police reports, FBI bulletins, Amber Alerts, news articles, or any other expected references to a kidnapped child with that name — but on the following day the same Facebook user reported that Kaydance had been found.
