Michael Richardson says he found out about press conference not from LAPD or LASD but from Los Angeles Times reporter Carla Hall.

9:27 a.m.

So here’s the latest, Michael is in Las Vegas and headed over to the press conference.

We did a three way call this morning to Las Vegas Metro PD’s Office of Public Information regarding the press conference to let them know that he was going to be there.

An Officer Cassell all but bit our heads off inquiring who told Michael, Mitrice’s father to come to Las Vegas?  He said and I quote, “Did you talk to the LAPD and the LASD authorities in charge?  Did they ask you to come?”

What the fuck is that about?  He’s her father.  The officer did everything but tell him, don’t come here.

As I type this, Michael is already on his way over to the Enterprise Area Command located at 6975 Windmill Lane in Las Vegas for the 11 a.m. press conference.

Oh and no—neither the LAPD or the Sheriff’s have yet to tell Michael anything about today’s press conference.  Somebody needs to put that in check.  The police should have flown both Mitrice’s mother and father to Las Vegas this morning.

Is Mitrice Richardson In Las Vegas?

I don’t know but I’m headed out there ASAP on a Plane! The same 5 friends I tell you I have and mention often, we were in Las Vegas in January this year when I see this child that not only look’s like my Mitrice, but all of her body movements were like Mitrice. I jump out the truck and almost get hit by cars trying to get to this girl. The rest of my friends get out and help me search but in a split second this child is gone again. One of my friends say, “that’s got to be her, because she keep disappearing.”

The following Sunday morning I get up good and early and go looking and found nothing. The following Monday I return back to Los Angeles and call the Detectives from LAPD and inform them what transpired. I drew them a map and photoshoped the entire situation. They (LAPD) provided another lazy follow up and brushed it off as it was just probably my imagination.

Now, 6 months later a young man who took Mitrice to a Junior Prom and went to her church states he saw possibly the same young lady. Mind you folks, the Father is not credible but this kid is because when he said he possibly saw Mitrice the next thing I know the LAPD and Los Angeles Sheriff’s are parachuting out of helicopters and airplanes in Las Vegas.

Now, please keep in mind they’ve known about this since January of this year, and they waited until I filed a Lawsuit on 7/27/2010, and ironically they drop a press release it’s been sightings of Mitrice. No one from the Sheriff’s Department has contacted me are even provided me with information regarding the Press Conference taking place in Las Vegas on 7/29/2010. I learned of the press conference through the Media, LA Times to be exact!

Yes, I would love for this to be my daughter and hope she responds to our plea, But this may just be another distratction from the Sheriff’s to reduce the heat I’ve been keeping on them.

Like always, I will keep you in the know the best I can.
