In a rather significant development police now call the disappearance of this young six year old girl out of Arizona and abduction.
It's been almost two months and secured Isabel Seles was reported missing from her own home on a Saturday morning around 9 o'clock.
Shortly after that time her mother made this chilling 911 call.
Now -- and McCain.
-- you're opening it.
And -- Heard really gives -- that woman Mary -- -- tools are retired FBI criminal profiler good morning to you worked on.
Some of the most high profile cases in the country that we've come to know Elizabeth Smart and Natalee Holloway also wrote the book dangerous instincts.
How gut feelings betray us.
Thank you for your time today your heart really goes out the mom can you learn anything from them of -- -- still -- mother who is very concerned about where daughters.
Well what would be important is to get -- baseline of behavior from the mother to understand how she acts.
In another crisis situation so is this out of the ordinary or is this in keeping with how -- she would normally respond.
-- you wonder you know mothers watching at home they probably react the same way if if your child was missing and they had no answers for where he or she is.
Now contrast that with what the father.
What the father's 911 call and -- wanna play a clip of that to -- should analyze this.
An -- emergency.
Wanna reporting missing person my little girl of the pictures -- that believe she was abducted from our house.
That I even -- in the living room watching it doesn't vaccine at midnight metro police.
You know I never heard anything weird sort of like just on the other side of the wall for her woke up this morning -- vote getter -- baseball game and she's gonna look like my -- -- It looked everywhere in the house and my older son noted that the window was wide open and the screen like playing in the backyard.
Here optional as she is just such work -- just called record holder gets about how.
But he came from.
Well he does sound very calm cool and collected.
But the point -- -- is that how he traditionally is when he's under stress.
And I know a lot of people who are listening to that say that's just simply not realistic.
But it may be for this person it may be the way he acts under stress now there were a couple of interesting things that he.
Provided to the 911 operator and that was.
When he was listening to the to the ball game he didn't hear anything unusual.
However the window of opportunity for this little girl to go missing.
Went well beyond that baseball game so why -- -- focus on that timeframe so that would be a question I would out there -- There's a few more questions in this -- this girl disappeared on the 21 of April.
And that the father has now been told to stay away from her two Brothers.
Why would that be.
I think that's.
Pretty unusual actually.
I I have not had that experience in another case where the father or the mother's been asked to stay away from the other children.
Another could be.
Very legitimate reasons for that -- could include that.
The father is is being too demanding on the children.
Maybe trying to interfere with the children statements and what they want to tell police or could be.
That police do not want this whole situation escalating even further because he -- a suspect.
The one thing that strikes a lot of us -- -- the laughter at the end there.
Can you explain that.
I have seen people and very.
It's troubling that the very stressful situations you bring them into the FBI office you bring them in to law enforcement offices.
And they laugh and appropriately.
They just do it and hit you double take on it.
But I've seen it happen.
Over and over again.
Again I have to put that in context.
Here -- some more context then another 911 call from the father on that Saturday morning.
A -- like just a moment he's -- circle freaking out I MP.
Number we are on the way to get a bunch of opposite -- I want -- -- -- -- in the house we will.
So they stay there and now the mystery continues.
Why then would the police changed the category.
Of this case to an abduction what is that -- That tells me that they haven't ruled out the possibility that she just wandered away on her own that.
Enough evidence now to say that she was taken against her will.
But I think what's really interesting here is that yes they do call it an abduction.
But you'll notice they did not call -- a stranger abduction.
And what does that mean.
I believe that means that there are still people within the family or close to the family whom knew the little girl.
That could still be considered suspects a stranger abduction means exactly that it is history -- Unknown to the family unknown to the child they did not use that word.
As you well know -- abductions of a child from -- home you know from from strangers it is so where's your point.
And oftentimes you find that the missing.
Or whomever is responsible is often -- back there's some relationship with the family.
It is that a fair statement to make.
That's a very fair statement stranger it genuinely is it's genuine stranger abductions are very very rare.
The danger to children especially that age.
Comments from people who are closer to that child -- a close family friends or someone within the immediate family.
You have to hope and pray this young girl comes back -- Mario and -- thank you for allowing us to.
-- in your experience there out of Washington today I have.
