Locals Searching for Baby Levon



The frustration must mount as searchers realize that just a word from the baby's father and the search comes to an end.

As frustration mounts, so do the costs to taxpayers, both financially and emotionally:  something the father's family's attorney should keep in mind when or if a jury is needed.


UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Utica Police are preparing to take advantage of an overwhelming outpouring of offers to help search for baby Levon Wameling by organizing citizen search parties.

Utica Police on Sunday night put out the call, asking civilians to call 315-223-3510 and let them know if they're interested in helping to search for the missing nine-month-old or distribute flyers with the baby's picture.

Dozens of people called as of mid-morning Monday; some civilians and some professionals, with certification in search and rescue.

"We felt that, rather than just having people walking around the streets looking for something that they don't know what they're looking for or how to look, that we'd organize it," said Sgt. Steve Hauck.

Sgt. Hauck says that police are researching what kind of instruction civilians would need in order to take part in a search for a possible crime victim. Of high importance is what to do if they come across human remains which would be valuable evidence at trial.

At this point, police are just taking names and numbers of those interested in helping so they know how to reach them and put together an organized search. Sgt. Hauck says it will probably be a week or more before that happens.

Baby Levon Wameling's paternal grandparents reported him missing last week. At the time, the baby's father, Jevon Wameling, said the child had vanished from their Jay Street front porch two weeks prior.

The case has been receiving national attention from various media outlets.

Similar (not exact) name. Was a DNA test done to establish paternity?

I am not up on this story. Where was the baby's Mom during the 2 weeks he wasn't reported missing? TIA

Mom was in rehab.

'We obviously have very grave concerns about the child. First and foremost, is where this child?' Utica Police Sgt. Steve Hauck told YNN. 'We need to know what happened. Wherever the evidence leads us is where we're going to go. If we find a crime was committed, then we're going to take appropriate steps to bring that person to justice. But right now, our biggest concern is finding this child.'
Though he is not a suspect, police said they are are treating Wameling as a 'person of interest'.
'The last we left it with the father he asked for an attorney and no longer wanted to speak with us,' Williams told CNN FRIDAY.


MONDAY...
Sgt. Hauck was on WIBX First News with Keeler in the Morning and said that Levon’s father is not officially a suspect at this time, and no arrests are pending unless there is a VERIFIABLE SUSPICION of involvement.

there is a VERIFIABLE SUSPICION!!!!!

In Ohio Elaina's mom was arrested for child endangerment, Levon's dad would be arrested if this crime happened in Ohio.

"Here’s the thing, we have a problem with what he says," Williams said. "Here’s a guy that waited two weeks to come forward. He doesn’t bring it forward to the police, but brings it forward to his parents. Instead he goes to an attorney's office. I THINK ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THEN WORDS."

ARREST JEVON FOR CAUSING THE DISAPPEARANCE OF LEVON!!!

Anonymous said...

If we find a crime was committed, ????

It must be a crime to NOT report a missing child!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Please help find Ayla
The difference in Levon's and Elaina's disappearances is the manner in which they were...or in Jevon's case..WERE NOT reported. Is the paternal grandmother friends with the DA? Why did she go there? The police may be timid to proceed without the backing of the public prosecutor...as is often the case :(

WebSleuths BANNED all discussing of Hailey Dunn case, last year or so they banned all negative discussion of Billie Jean Dunn, administrator calls Billie Jean Dunn a VICTIM, claims Billie Jean Dunn was never cited as Person-Of-Interest or Suspect even though 2 affidavits name Billie as Person-Of-Interest and upon the identification of Hailey's remains the Sheriff of Mitchell County said the two Persons-Of-Interest (Shawn and Billie) were promoted to Suspects (I posted links a dozen times and every message was quickly deleted and the account disabled/blocked)

WTF with the WebSleuths side? They ruthlessly censored the Hailey DUnn board and now they claim Billie is a VICTIM!

“We’re at the very early stages in the investigation and it would be inappropriate at this point for me to discuss the evidence that we discovered or to comment on information that has been made public that ultimately may be utilized by us at a future time,” McNamara said.
“There are significant undertakings that all need to be done before we decide on what we can do criminally or where we want to go,” he added. “I know people are outraged, but we are still looking for a missing child( INFANT MISSING TWO WEEKS!) and I think we should be giving this a little bit more time.”???!!!
(I know there's laws against losing an infant, then failing to report it's disappearance. Surely it won't take long to search a law book for the criminal codes!!!)
While police understand people are wondering why Wameling is not jail, officials say it’s important for investigators to tread carefully before making any moves that might undermine efforts to solve the case.

“FOR US, IT'S IMPORTANT that we get THE whOLE STORY ...and not just a portion of it,SO, if THERE'S A CHARGE THAT maybe COULD BE LEVELED, I suppose that’s POSSIBLE HOWEVER THIS ISN'T a sprint TO MAKE AN ARREST IT'S A MARATHON! WE'RE very busy getting to THE BOTTOM OF IT, and WE'VE GOT a long way TO GO!!!”” Hauck said. “

TOLEDO -- The mother of a missing Toledo toddler arrested on a charge of child endangerment faced a judge Thursday morning.
Angela Mories Steinfurth, 25, was arraigned on one count of child endangerment for an incident that took place the day her 18-month-old daughter, Elaina, disappeared. According to the court affidavit, Steinfurth admitted to police that her daughter sustained a serious physical injury on June 2, but she did not seek medical treatment for the child.

@anon 10:12 pm- Thank you for the link on the missing baby. This statement is sad from the grandfather, "She doesn't know where the baby's at, but she knew what happened to the baby," he said when asked about the child's injury. "I was told the boyfriend dropped the baby and she had serious physical injuries."

SHE KNEW..past tense, rest in peace baby Elaina:(((

I'm going to need DNA confirmation to believe that Jevon is Levon's biological father. Which could contribute to motive, if he thought that the baby was his but it became more and more obvious that he is not.

@

Nail on head he is no more the bio Father than I am an he knew it probly from the ger go.

Babys father was white an he murdered him.

Not just because of that but a contributing factor along with being
An evil excuse for a man an a waste of skin..I like you do not belive there one iota of himbeing this poor deceased childs baby daddy.

Probably got a bout 4 children all over the place anyway.

An like a lion or something was not going to let another mans seed flourish an grow amongst his PRIDE

An there is a pun but I wont use it because an excuse for a man like him has no pride in life orhimself.

LawAbiding said...

The mother of Levon or Elaina? If Elaina's mom, she also has a 4yo, so maybe it's the child's birthdate (2/02/09)? Just a guess. If Levon's mom, no idea.

Anonymous said...

I have a friend who has 2 bi-racial sons, one is red headed and freckled, as his white mom and one is dark skin and hair, as his black father...Just because a child is bi-racial does not mean they have to look like dad/mom.

I noticed they describe him on the missing info as black hair, and dark eyes, I think the pictures are not portraying the actual looks of the child.

Anonymous said...

There is that missing info that says he has black hair, but the other one says he is blond. That's quite a discrepancy.

Her other two children definitely look biracial. I'm not sure who their father is supposed to be.

I personally don't know if it's a death date of someone she knew(child, friend). I just told what I know in a previous post because of working around that.

Anons @ 6:50 and 7:30, 6/17; IMO, it is just a matter of time before Trish at Websleuths becomes her own final undoing. She is actually thick-headed and stupid but has somehow managed to exceed "The Peter Principal". She is not nearly as smart as she thinks she is; she just got lucky, that's all.

A couple of years ago (or so), I heard Trish on an interview with Dr. Keith Ablow, to whom she was very insulting, belittling and demeaning. Like she's smarter than he is, has more experience and better degrees than he does. NO WAY. She was SO rude and unprofessional towards him for his mere suggestion that George Anthony gave every indication of having molested Casey Anthony as a child, and that Casey had every symptom of having been molested by her father; and outlined those issues that pointed directly towards Casey having been extensively molested.

Every major learned and degreed analysist and psychologist I've read or heard about gave these same profesional opinions of George and Casey, so it wasn't like it was some strange opinion that came out of left field, yet Trish was highly insulting to Dr. Ablow in regard to his professional opinion.

After the show was over, I read the comments made by Trish and her minion followers and they were all extremely insulting and undermining to Dr. Ablow. Now I know how stupid she really is and have never read up on Websleuths again. I have no time for people who think they know more than everyone else, (including some 'so-called' un-trained professionals), when they have no related experience, knowledge or background at all.

I'm not surprised she's so stupid she would actually support Billie Dunn in her lies, deceit and treachery. I just hope in time that Trishs' stupid little ship sinks along with her dumb minions who aren't any smarter than she is. We lost the best of the blogs when ValHall shut down The Hinkey Meter. Although I never posted there, this is the one I miss, certainly not Websleuths. They suck. Waste of time. Observer.

My question is why did they give the baby to the dad instead of letting him stay with the grandmother? Obviously a very dysfunctional situation. And yet these types of people continue to have more babies. They can't take care of themselves and instead expect the state government to do it all.

I think Amy thought that Levon was going to be cared for by his paternal grandmother, here she asks that Levon be returned to HIS mother, as in Levons dad's mother.

Here is a quote from the mother from cnycentral.

"I have nothing. All I have is to sit there on an empty stomach, that's it," says Warney. "Is my baby ok? Who did this to my baby? If my baby is in your house,... PLEASE RETURN HIM TO HIS MOTHER, WHERE MY BABY IS COMFORTED, LOVED, FED PAMPERED BATHED, SLEPT WELL.... I just ask everyone that if you do see Levon Wameling anywhere, dead or alive please contact the police and get him where I can put him to rest."
June 17, 2013 at 3:48 PM

Instead the paternal grandmother also waited to report Levon missing...first she called the family lawyer...then had an appointment with the lawyer to confer...and made an appointment to see the DA....then FINALLY reported Levon missing...

How sad is it when the parent of a "missing" child won't call out for them, but will call out for a lawyer? Somehow they forget the child's name, but remember their lawyer's number.

I don't know anything about this blogger, other than she's a local and has apparently had some limited access to Levon's mother.

IF this blogger is getting accurate info, then BOTH of Levon's parents need to be looked at.

Levon's father has spoken to the media. He said, "He would 'never' hurt his baby." Not a reliable denial.
