Was Katy Roe Abducted?

Authorities in Oregon are looking for Katy Roe. The 22-year-old woman vanished around April 17, and over the course of the past week there have been developments that have the missing woman's loved ones concerned. The News Guard reports that an article of clothing belonging to the missing woman has been located -- but what could this mean in the search for her?

According to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System, Katharine "Katy" Roe went missing on April 17 at around 2:00 a.m., while walking home by herself from the Wing Wa restaurant. She has not been seen since, nor has she made any contact with her loved ones since that night. This is leading people to imagine the worst in her disappearance, especially in response to the latest developments in the search for the 22-year-old missing woman.

Authorities in Depoe Bay aren't commenting specifically on the item of clothing that was found, such as what it was. However, it's been reported that the garment was located near the bay's shoreline.

Katy Roe is a petite young woman standing at only 4'9" and approximately 90 lbs. She has long brown hair and has a light complexion. If you know anything about this young woman's disappearance, or if you think you may have seen her or something related to her disappearance, please do not hesitate to contact the authorities in Depoe Bay, Oregon.

So what happened to Katharine "Katy" Roe? With this woman's incredibly petite size, it's easy to imagine that she'd be easy to overpower by a predator with foul play on his or her mind. A fear of possible foul play could also explain the quick response time by authorities, who set off a search for the woman as soon as she was reported missing by her grandmother. On the other hand, clothing found near the shoreline could also indicate that this missing woman somehow ended up in the water. There are far too many possibilities in this case due to the lack of information being released to the public.

Texas mom tried to roast toddler in oven

A Texas mom has been arrested on accusations that she put her own two-year-old daughter in an oven. Fox News 25 reports that the child was fortunate to survive the incident, but now 35-year-old Tasha Hatcher could face serious punishment. This case is absolutely bizarre, but this is not the first time a child has been cooked by a caregiver.

Hatcher was arrested on Thursday after she reportedly notified the police of her actions. She confessed that she had put the two-year-old girl in the oven and turned it on, which caused the child to suffer second and third-degree burns on her body. Authorities say that the child is recovering at the Parkland Hospital in Dallas. She has been removed from the custody of her mother, and placed in to the care of Child Protective Services -- and for damned good reason. Tasha Hatcher and other members of her family have been barred from having contact with the injured toddler. This detail creates more questions in a case that is already confusing as it is.

Those who are acquainted with the Texas mom say that she seems to be a "loving parent." Her friends have reacted with shock at the allegations she has admitted to committing. So what drove her to putting her child in the oven? Was she under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol? Or was she under some kind of delusional breakdown?
