Missing Baby Update: It Was All A Lie

Talk about waste of time and resources! I can’t understand why someone would make up such a drastic lie just to cover up a miscarriage. Police are saying it was a desperate attempt to fix a broken relationship. Nearly 20 detectives worked the case during Christmas Eve and Christmas. Now police want McCormick to pay for the resources that were used in the search.

Police: Missing Baby Story Was A Hoax

The search in Florida for a missing toddler with ties to Massachusetts has been called off – because it was a hoax.
Miami police had been looking for help in their search for 6-month-old Riley Buchness, who was reportedly last seen by his mother December 23 in Miami. 
It turns out there is no Camille and there is no Riley.

Miami police said Friday that the whole story was fabricated by the woman who claimed to be the missing child’s mother.

That woman, Megan McCormick, has now been charged with filing a false police report.

According to Miami police detective Freddy Ponce, McCormick made up the story about her missing 6-month old son to cover up the fact that she had a miscarriage six months ago and didn’t want her ex-boyfriend, John Buchness, to know the truth.

Police say Buchness had no knowledge of the miscarriage and was in Miami to meet his son for the first time.
That’s when the story started to fall apart.

Search for Missing Miami Baby

What a nightmare for a parent to experience… The parents of a 6 month old toddler are desperately looking for the whereabouts of their baby boy. The baby was last seen with his babysitter, Camille on December 23rd. She’s described as five feet six inches tall, weighing about 130 pounds, with dark brown hair halfway down her back and a gap between her teeth. She speaks with a heavy French accent.

If you’re in Florida, please keep your eyes open for this baby and look out for a red Acura with a Massachusetts license plate. Police ask anyone with information to call Miami Police at 305-579-6630 or 305-579-6619.

Police: Missing Florida Boy May Be In Mass. Car

The search for a missing toddler in Florida has ties to Massachusetts.
6-month-old Riley Buchness was last seen by his parents December 23 in Miami.
Police did not offer details of his disappearance, other than he was with a woman by the name of “Camille.”
Riley, who is white and about a foot tall was last seen wearing a white onesie with blue jeans.
His hair is in a mohawk style, he has one tooth, and a fake tattoo of an anchor on his left arm.
He’s believed to be with a 20-to-30 year old woman named “Camille.” Her last name is not known. She speaks with a heavy French accent. She is white, 5-feet-5 inches tall, weighs 130 pounds, with very long brown hair, brown eyes, and a gap between her teeth.
Police say Riley and Camille are possibly traveling in a red Acura, possibly with a Massachusetts license plate.

Investigators are asking anyone who sees the child or the car to contact their local police department immediately.


Suggestive Reading: Media Bias: Only White Kids Get Abducted

Check out this article on Mom Logic about media bias as it relates to race and missing children. I really appreciate their mention of the good works by Black and Missing But Not Forgotten. A blog dedicated to those that are missing and black. Thanks for all you do, Deidra! Unfortunately, there are many who say they are dedicated to missing persons, but none focus on missing minorities in general.

As stated by the Media Bias article, “Thousands of kids go missing each day — so why do we never seem to hear about the African-American children?” Great question, Mom Logic! Thanks for bringing this issue to the forefront.

WARNING – Extortionist Targeting Families of the Missing

A few weeks ago, I received an email from someone that said they had information about missing mother, Lilly Aramburo. I knew it was some sort of hoax. My intuition is rarely (if ever) wrong. Here’s the email below:

I did some research and learned that this person has been targeting families of the missing and trying to extort money from them. What a sick individual(s)! That’s some heavy karma they’re creating.

Peggy Florence, who’s daughter, Jasmine Haslag disappeared last June (just like Lilly) was targeted. She has a website She wrote this public warning on her website:

“Just know that if you receive any correspondence from a person stating they know the location of your missing loved one, that they are being held hostage/captive by someone and they are asking for an amount of money to provide you with information about your loved one, it is a scam intended to extort money from you. This person or persons truly have no information about your loved one, and they intend to take your money and run. These vultures will prey upon anyone, and this is no different then all the other internet money scams that go on everyday, except that they are preying upon very vulnerable persons and they know that these families are desperate to find their loved one, very hopeful of finding the loved one alive, and vulnerable to grabbing at any straws or leads, and they see the horrible situation of having a missing loved one as a very profitable scam to run.”

If you are a victim of this scam artist, please contact your local FBI.
