My husband Simon and I have been covering missing children cases since July 2008 when I first heard about little Caylee Marie Anthony missing. Neither of us knew covering this story would turn into a series of missing children cases. Never in my wildest dreams was I even aware of the fact that so many in our own country went missing as they do.

Normally you hear or read one or two reports about them and then that is it. Sometimes you have to go snooping around later to find out if the child was ever found. You wonder if they were found, were they dead or alive.

Well we have been trying to keep the cases alive as much as we can and when we slip up and leave some out it is never intentional. We care about all the children that are in danger. We don’t care what their race or nationality is. What does that have to do with an innocent child being in danger anyway? I don’t go by that as to whether or not I will follow the case. A child is a child no matter what color their skin is or what country they are from. All children are defenseless and they should never be put in danger where their lives are on the line. I have a heart big enough to where there is enough room to care about all these children.

masasarah-ross1.jpgOn October 29th I reported about a little three year old girl, Masaraha Ross, that was missing and believed to be with her mother Ronkeya Holmes and neither of them had been seen. A few days later I reported that the FBI got involved because they believed the mother and child could be in danger.

Holmes’s mother, Edith Fletcher said that her daughter had let the child stay with her father in Winter Haven Florida while she attending classes at Savannah Technical College. Something just didn’t feel right when she tried to make the arrangements to bring the child home.

“She would call and say let me talk to Masaraha or I am coming to get her,” said Fletcher. “He would always say she is sleeping or out of town. Months went by and I told her to just go and get her and when she got there he wouldn’t give her to her.”

masasarah-ross2.jpgHolmes was supposed to be meeting her daughter’s father, Lester Ross in the Wal-Mart parking lot in to pick her daughter up from a visit with her father. Fletcher said she hadn’t seen or heard from her daughter or granddaughter since.

Police found the mother’s car but it was Lester’s cousin that was driving the car. Police found inside the car baby clothes and shoes, a child’s book and toys in the back seat. On the front seat they found a suitcase with women’s clothing inside it and Holmes’s college badge hanging from the rear view mirror. Fletcher feels that those things were planted in the cover as a cover up for something.

Lester Ross claims he handed his daughter over to her mother at a Haines City, Wal-Mart store but he has since been carefully avoiding any contact with law enforcement since making that claim.

Holmes’s family members have managed to put together $2000 for a reward hoping it will help freshen someone’s memory about seeing Homes and Masaraha or perhaps to get them to come forth with any information they might have to help find the two of them.

Anyone with information about the missing pair, should contact Winter Haven Detective Sgt. Chris Ford at 863-291-5733 or 863-412-5973 or Detective Amity McGee at 863-291-5312 or 863-287-1961.

Anyone in the Haines City area should contact Haines City police at 863-421-3636.

I will keep this mother and child in my prayers as always.
