Update: There will not be an Amber Alert, instead law enforcement issued a Missing Child Alert because they could not confirm the abduction. The grandmother has custody, the mother hasn’t brought her back…that’s an abduction if I ever heard of one. Especially when you factor in the pervert. A Missing Child Alert is an Amber Alert without the Emergency Broadcast System.
The grandmother of little Haylee Donathan was granted emergency custody of the child. A pair of local attorneys represented Mary Watson for free. Now that Ms. Watson has custody of Haylee, law enforcement can issue an Amber Alert because the girl’s mother is guilty of parental kidnapping or at least interfering with a custody order. The hands of law enforcement were tied because it is believed that Candace Watson willingly took Haylee on the run with Robbi Potter. And in this country it is not illegal to have one’s children around child molesters, even though it should be. The safety and welfare of children should be paramount over parental rights.
Now the information regarding Haylee’s disappearance can be broadcast over television and radio, and most important on the electronic billboards that line the roads. There have been a couple of sightings, but they all came to late to save the little girl.
Robbi Potter was in a halfway house after being convicted in 2006 of two counts of sexual battery against two children, ages 7 and 9. So you know that little Haylee is in danger. What kind of woman would put their child in that kind of danger? I can’t wrap my head around the thought process that makes her think that he has done it to other children, but I am so special he won’t do it to my child.
Potter and Watson are driving a black and green, 1988 Chevrolet truck with the license number ENS9729. They were last seen in Colorado. If you see the truck call 866-4-WANTED or text “potter” with your information to 847411.
