Hannah Anderson: Father Begs For Her Release

Hannah Anderson’s father, Brett Anderson, spoke to a group of well-wishers at a vigil held last Tuesday to remember his kidnapped daughter.

The assembled crowd, consisting of both family members and friends, also prayed for his dead wife and for his son.

He told the crowd, “Hannah will come back and Ethan and Tina, I love you both….we all love you. I know everybody’s here for support of all three of them and I want to thank you all. God bless.”

Hannah Anderson’s friend Haley Wilcock told Fox 5 San Diego, “We have hope still that she’s still out there. And we hope that she somehow hears about this and knows that we’re all here for her and praying for her.”

James Lee DiMaggio, 44, a longtime family friend, is suspected of killing Christina, 44, and of kidnapping her daughter, Hannah, 16, and Ethan, 8, according to San Diego County Sheriff’s office.

At news conference held on Tuesday afternoon, Brett Anderson pleaded for his daughter back. At the vigil held at El Capital High School in Lakeside, California, the people wore pink — Hannah’s favorite color — and released blue balloons into the sky in honor of her younger brother, Ethan.

“I’m begging you to let my daughter go,” her father said. “You’ve taken everything else.”

DiMaggio, is believed to be driving a blue Nissan Versa, California license plate 6WCU986. A state-wide Amber Alert was issued Monday and still remains in effect.

And so the search for Hannah Anderson continues, with a mixture of hope and dread.
