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.


Miami Police – Nothing Like CSI:Miami or First 48

Recently, I had a conversation with the detective from Lilly’s case. It only took a few weeks of daily messages to his voice mail and emails to him and his superiors inside the Miami Dade Police Department.

I was a little frustrated to say the least but very thankful to have the opportunity to seek help in several aspects in the search for Lilly. And more specifically, I had some questions that needed answers.

In the few weeks in which I waited to speak with MDPD, I managed to not only get two Search and Rescue Teams to volunteer, but I tracked down the owners of the property (where the recent tip said she’d be found) called them and received approval for the search. All we were waiting for was MDPD.

Back to the conversation with detective. After almost 3 weeks, not much had been accomplished on their end. According to him, he was out the previous week and nobody handles his cases while he’s out. Besides, Lilly’s is not his only case (I’ve heard this mantra over and over again). Nevertheless, I was happy to report that we had 2 SAR teams ready to move and all we needed was their approval. That approval never came. What I got instead was a bunch of excuses.

And since then, I can’t help but wonder why the MDPD would not allow two professional Search and Rescue teams from South Florida to help in the search for Lilly? The more I think about it, the less it makes sense.

You would think they would welcome and accept any help that’s offered to them since they’re so tied up with hundreds of missing persons cases. So busy that it’s taken more than 3 weeks to get the ball rolling in order to complete the search at the property where Lilly’s remains might be found. Instead, they insist they are fully prepared. They have cadaver dogs…

After an entire year of neglect to her case, now we must rely on them and them only?

And yet, why has it taken this long? Can it really be that the MDPD are that tied up? That it takes them weeks to simply find out who the property owners are? When it took me less than 20 minutes? Trust me, Miami Dade Police are nothing like what you see on CSI:Miami, more like Reno 911.

Honestly, what is it going to take for police to solve this case? Lilly did NOT willingly abandon her child. She did NOT just vanish!  

Does more blood need to spill?


More Than One Entire Year and Lilly is still GONE ~ Desperately Seeking Justice

Since the moment I received the phone call from Lilly’s mother, I knew this was going to be a life changing event. Although, I was used to losing touch with Lilly every once and awhile, this was different. The more I learned about the details, the more I knew something was terribly wrong. She’d never abandon her child. Just a few days before she went missing, she wrote journal entries expressing hope and love for her baby and making plans for the future. She was in a treatment center until her scheduled court date. She was clear minded and making an effort to change her life. That day, she was picked up by Christen in the morning, at the treatment center. And the rest is history.

A short time after Lilly disappears, Christen’s Cadillac SUV disappears. And Kelly moves in with Christen. According to them, there was another person in the apartment the night Lilly vanished. A guy by the nickname “EJ”. It’s been more than one year since that night and we still don’t know anything about this person. Why have they not come forward? Miami Dade Police have yet to interview any of the people who were there at the condo the night she disappeared.

If you have any information or a tip, please contact Detective Mancha at 305-418-7245. If you know anything about her disappearance and could offer some insight, please email me. This has gone on way too long. Someone out there knows EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED TO LILLY. I urge you to contact the detective or call the tip line at 305-471-TIPS, you can remain anonymous if need be. Just make the phone call, please. No matter how small a detail, no matter how silly you think it may be, your information could help solve this mystery. It’s been a hellish experience for Lilly’s family and friends. Please help bring Lilly back home.

For the most recent update on Lilly’s case, please read Murder, Money & Power Miami Style. Very raw and unfiltered truth about what we are dealing with in the real life mystery of Lilly Aramburo’s disappearance. Please comment and make a quick phone call to the US Attorney’s Office at 305-530-7679. It appears the US Attorneys office are the only ones who can properly investigate this case. Also, please continue sending emails to Governor Charlie Crist and media. It makes absolutely no sense that after all this time, not ONE article has been written about Lilly’s case in local newspapers like The Miami Herald or Miami New Times. The local news channels are not helping either. It’s not due to lack of effort, I testify to that.
