    If I was this little girls so called mother. I couldn't live with myself, after all she brought the killer And child molester to her little girl. I thin she ought to be proscuted to highest extent of the law. How could a mother do something like this? And this muderer, Should be incased in concrete. The system is too easy on these ( I don't have a ba enough name to call them). But how can they let these creeps roam the streets looking for another innicent child to hurt.

    I' ve read alot of blame of the mother on these blogs and i cant believe at a time like this you can stoop to such a level to were you can blame her.. a sleep or not cooking or cleaning in the bathroom or in the shower no one deserves the bashing that some of you people are putting on her. It can easily happen to one of you or me I hope it never does but this is a time were we all need to become united and stand by one an other.. No child is ever that safe or ever watched enough all it takes is 1 second you mean to tell me when your using the bathroom you bring your lids in there everytime. No i dont thing so So watch what you say i know people wwrite things in the heat of the moment but listen No one is perfect no matter how much you think so. Now with all that said Ive never commented on these blogs before So here goes.. My heart along with my familys heart has went out to this family

Our deepest sympathy goes out to all of Nevaeh Buchanan Family Whether it be friends or family or some one that she just would say hi to i truly mean everyone the ones who searched triedlessly Including police..

    im so sorry to hear of this tragedy. it must be really hard on nevaeh's ,other and other family members. i hope the family finds who did this and have him get the judgement he deserves. there are some sick twisted individuals out there. sex offenders are the most likely cause for why children go missing. my condolences to the buchanan family. i will be praying for all of u. and this should be a warning to every parent or family member with children to watch out there are these type of people out there. and nevaeh was victim to this. God bless all of the buchanan family

    No it could Not easily happen to my child… Nevaeh's mother allowed CONVICTED CHILD MOLESTERS to be around her daughter and serve as a “FATHER FIGURE” and that quote came from her mother!!!! Most parents would PROTECT THEIR CHILDREN from these PREDATORS NOT invite them into their homes to be around THEIR CHILDREN!!!!! The mother Should Be CHARGED With NEGLIGENCE and THROWN IN PRISON… NEVAEH is SAFE IN GOD'S ARMS NOW… TO BAD SHE WASN't SAFE WITH HER OWN MOTHER…

    I really belive if you have children that you love so much. You do everything to protect them in this case Nevaeh at age 5 wasn't care for and left attended to raise her self on the street . I blame her parent's for not beening there in this world that all kind's of ''bad'' thing's are going in this world . Thing's like this shouldn't happen. I really believe the parent's should go to prison. Now she is in better hands of ''GOD'' she can't be hurt no more. Parent's like this is good a example not to follow. I hope this doesn't happen again to any one else please learn from this. You would never get them back. Cherish your children all you can they only live onece in a life time .

    Mom is a lying SOB, I understand people grieve differently but if your child is missing how can you be so blazah blah regarding what happened to your daughter. defending yourself that you didnt do anything before anynoe even accuses you,
    like my Grandmom says …” A Guilty conscience does not need an accuser.
