Description

On May 25, 2003, 18-month-old Acacia Bishop was kidnapped from her great-grandmother's home in Salt Lake City, Utah. Acacia’s grandmother took the toddler and ran while Acacia’s great-grandmother left the room to put her vacuum away. This was not the first time that Acacia was taken by her grandmother. This time, she took Acacia to Idaho where they spent the night in a motel. The following day, the pair was spotted by witnesses playing by the Snake River. That was the last known sighting of Acacia Bishop. Authorities believe that Acacia drowned in a botched murder/suicide attempt that day, while some of her family believes it was an elaborate ruse and that Acacia was given to another family to raise.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Acacia Bishop, please call Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office at 801-743-7000.

You can follow Acacia’s case on social media at Acacia Bishop Missing Child.

You can forgive but how can you move on...?

With doing my best not to sound judgemental, I don't understand how one simply "moves on" from losing a child this way. I certainly did not expect to hear from the mother, since I cannot imagine myself having the strength in the same circumstances to open myself up to the public. I am appalled at the attitude of LE in this case not to mention the bizarre hostility of the local community. I would be more appalled if I were not toughened up by listening to nearly every episode of this podcast and finding that bizarre attitudes and behaviors are commonplace in missing persons cases. And I am more or less like, "Idaho Falls ..... again?" Deorr Kunz, the Vallow and Ryan children, and this little girl. And probably more that are unknown.
