Trenton Duckett – Missing Child

This is an age-enhanced picture of what Trenton Duckett might look like today. Trenton Duckett was two years old when he went missing from Leesburg Florida. According to his mother Melinda Duckett she tucked him into his bed @ 7 p.m., yet just 2 hours later she called authorities to report her son missing. The screen to his window was cut. Trenton Duckett lived with his mom at the Windemere Villa apartments.

Melinda Duckett committed suicide by a single gunshot at her grandparent’s home two weeks after reporting her son missing. Trenton Duckett has been missing for three years and would now be five years old. In August on the three year anniversary of his son’s disappearance Josh Duckett held a candle light vigil for his son. He continues to believe his son is alive and will be found.

Trenton Duckett is now four years old, and as of August 27th he has been missing for two years. Do you know where Trenton Duckett is or what happened to this little boy? Please contact the Leesburg Florida police or your local law enforcement with any information, you can remain anonymous.

Kiva Uncovered


Kiva.org promoted itself as a new personalized level of financial assistance for individuals in third world countries. The bright star Kiva presented to our world was bright and shining and allowed a single mom of two small children like myself to help someone in another world who was working hard to make the world a better place on their end.

The Kiva system allowed individuals to lend money to a real person, a person with a face, and a story, and a need. I enjoyed reading through the real world stories of the people Kiva was helping to find the right person for me to lend money. That special person who struck a chord in my heart, and that Kiva allowed me to use small amounts which were feasible for a single mother of two small children to handle in these hard times.

The need remains but the mystery is gone. I now question how accurate the stories of individual needs really may have been or if someone at Kiva.org was hired simply to write the words to sell the loan to those who thought there was a person or face behind the story to help.

Richard Heene Claims Family Privacy Violated


Richard and Mayumi Heene have been accused of using their children in a hoax. Mayumi Heene has confessed in an affidavit that her husband’s balloon stunt was a planned out hoax. Now Richard Heene wants the sheriff charged for violating his privacy.

The Heene’s call 911 telling them their child is floating above Colorado in a homemade balloon that resembles a giant jiffy pop and allow the public to believe their child is in danger for hours. Then act surprised that millions of people feel deceived and instead of owning up to what he has done he begins to attack those that tried to help him and his family.

Yes, there is a statue that prohibits the sheriff from telling anyone that the family is being investigated by child protective services, yet when you place your family on national television and say your child is missing and floating above the earth you lose all rights to privacy. The temper seen on a brief homemade video by the Heene’s as the balloon floated off is frightening. I cannot imagine how the temper flared toward Falcon after he said on national television during a Wolf Blitzer CNN interview, “you said we did it for the show”.

Placing your children knowingly in danger is unacceptable. Richard Heene has certainly made it evident that taking his small children into the eye of a storm multiple times is family fun and not cause for concern. Frightening!
