Manwill search on CNN

This video from CCN's Jane Velez-Mitchell posted this morning on 8-year-old Robert Manwill's disappearance:

c0f9/1249059829-map.jpgMike Gaynor, former NYPD detective, told Velez-Mitchell that he does not believe the search for Robert is for a runaway child, but rather one for the recovery of his body at this point.

Velez-Mitchell asks what's wrong with America that more than 120 registered sex offenders live within a two-mile radius of Robert's home, and guest Dr. Dale Archer answered that the criminal pasts of the adults in Robert's life are highly relevant to his case and his home life is the "perfect storm" for abuse.

Robert disappeared from his mother's home July 24. Earlier this week, the Idaho Statesman broke the news that Robert's infant half brother had been removed from his mother's home after she was found guilty of fracturing the infant's skull. In addition, the mother's boyfriend has a slew of criminal convictions and has been barred by the courts from being alone with Robert's half sister.

Roughly 75 officers from the Boise, Meridian and Garden City police departments, as well as the Idaho State Police, the Ada County Sheriff's Office, and Probation and Parole will be leading what officials hope will be 1,000 volunteers in the search for Robert today.
