  1. Id**t authorities never formed a search party. The McDonalds where Naomi was abducted from is on a road that leads straight out to canals east of Harlingen toward Rio Hondo. After she was kidnapped she was reported to have been in a vehicle heading east.

    Had the police searched immediately Naomi would have been found while her abductors were using her for a good time on the canals and before they dumped her there.

    But stupid valley authorities are too dumb too capture anyone.
