Missing Missouri girl found alive

A 4-year-old girl abducted Monday from the front yard of her Missouri home has been found alive, according to authorities.

Alisa Maier was kidnapped in Louisiana, Missouri, while she was playing with her brother, police said. Authorities said she was found in Fenton, Missouri, which is nearly 84 miles from Louisiana, Missouri.

A neighbor said Maier's mother tried to chase after her daughter's abductor, but to no avail.

Dozens of law enforcement officers, FBI agents and volunteers took part in the search for Maier.

    Let's hope that this will spur the media to highlight all missing persons whether they be white, black or Yugoslavian.

    We have the power of the Flying Spaghetti Monster to thank for her safe return. Clearly she has been touched by His Noodley Appendage, and let us pray that He does the same for all those in similar peril. Thank you, Flying Spaghetti Monster.

      Did you actually read the article or are you truly that disrespectful to a family?

    So glad she was found. I think the real person to thank is the one who called the police. I would have difficulty believing God rescued her as the normal scenario is that most children are never found and those children and parents I'm sure prayed just as hard and deserved rescue just as much. Whatever the belief system, I am so happy for her family. I hope she was not harmed. 🙁

    I'm grateful to God for moving on the heart of this sick soul to allow this girl to return to safety. It is not our place to understand why things happen the way they do.
    As far as all the other remarks about, "How can God allow this to happen". Because of sin, there is good and evil in this world. God is NOT the cause of your pain, nor the pain of others, but he will put an end to it when He returns. Don't be deceived...He is not slack concerning his promises, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish , but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9
    I will leave you with one thought, During the days of Noah, He preached for 120 years and no one believed there would be a flood. They thought Noah lost his mind. The flood came and only eight people were saved" I'm sure a flood back in the day sounded ridiculous, the way Jesus is coming back sounds crazy to many. But the Bible says, that EVERY EYE shall see him. Believe that. Repent and turn from your wicked ways before it's everlasting too late. Christ died that we might have the right to the eternal life...Invite him into your heart.

    I am so thankful that Allah decided to bring this little girl home. I'm so happy for the family the end result hardly ever means the child coming back home.
    Those of you who are non-believers have you no respect either? He is your Allah to and you will have to stand in front of Allah and answer to Allah one day whether you like it or not. Do you really think Allah made this happen? Are you so cynical to think that if we believe in Allah that we somehow do not also believe in Satan? I do not want to think of a world without hope.. . and definitely do not want to think of a world without Allah.

    God had nothing to do with this. Honestly, do you really think this was something caused/solved by a higher being? So, God doesn't care about the other children who go missing? This family was better than the other families in God's eyes? Things happen in the world and have nothing to do with some great plan. Just my humble opinion - and I think we are able to share our opinions in the USA still, right?
