Missing Shanae
Posted: Monday, Sep 24th, 2007
BY: Roger Larsen

Although staying busy helps, Layne Peterson’s mind never wanders far from thoughts of his shy young daughter, missing now for 14 months. He last saw her in July 2006.

“Every minute, every day,” the Hitchcock farmer said when asked how much he thinks about Shanae, who turns 9 in October.

The young girl is believed to be with her mother, Eileen Marie Sharp, and her stepfather, Perry Dean Sharp. But where they are, and how they are managing to get by day to day, is a mystery.

Shanae had attended summer school in Meridian, Idaho, a year ago and was supposed to be reunited with her father on Aug. 15. Full custody had been granted by the court to her biological father on July 27.

While he had custody, Peterson allowed his daughter to go back to Idaho until just before school started.

“I didn’t have to let her go back, but I figured, well, it’s the right thing to do … let her go back with her mom, she can do what she has to do and come back on the 15th before school started here,” he said.

When she didn’t return, Peterson called the Beadle County Sheriff’s Office.

“They wanted to give it time,” he said. “I knew something was up. I think we gave them four, five, six days. I’m thinking they (Sharps) had something planned before.”

The FBI is involved, and there’s a substantial reward for information leading to the girl’s safe return. Shanae’s case is also posted on the Web site of “America’s Most Wanted,” and a CBS TV “The Early Show” story first aired last December was repeated Friday morning.

Peterson describes his daughter — the youngest of his three children with Eileen Sharp — as shy. She warms up to people once she gets to know them. “Just a typical little girl,” he said.

When she was living in Huron with her mother and stepfather, she was in a cheer and dance group and Girl Scouts. She loves swimming, and took lessons at the Nordby Center for Recreation. She started school at Madison Elementary.

Peterson wanted to keep all three of the kids together, but Shanae went to Idaho with her mother while she still had custody. Eileen Sharp had been postmaster in Yale before landing a postal job in Oregon, commuting across the border to Idaho where they lived. Her husband was a mechanic.

Shanae has two older brothers, Nate, 18, a student at Lake Area Technical School in Watertown, and Jordy, 15, who attends Hitchcock-Tulare High School.

“It’s been hard on everybody,” Peterson

She's most likely chained in a underground dungeon by some pervert.

And that pervert is probably her step dad.

But on a more serious note, is there a chance she is happier living with her mom?

Ahh...

I can't get too worked up over the kids who are kidnapped by their own mom or dad.

When kids get abducted by strangers... that shit makes me nuts. I think of my own kids being taken, and it makes me physically ill.

There should be a universal policy of execution for any scumbag who abducts a random child. A lengthy execution involving a soldering iron and each and every bodily orifice.

It's always to hard to read how a post is going to go on Wackbag.

But yea, people who abuse kids should die instantly. We all joke and love dark humor, but out in the real world, if anyone ever did anything to my Goddaughter, I would feed them their genitals.

QFT and QFT. I'm still in college and a long way from kids, but that kind of stuff is just infuriating.

First - I'm a goose for spelling Shanae "Shanai" in the thread title.

Second - I know Shanae's dad and step-mom. This has been beyond miserable for both of them. Don't know the mom, but abducting a kid - even if it's your own - is a real scumbag move.

I'm sure they're devastated, but did they ask Shanae who she wanted to live with? Did she spend most of her life with her mom, and therefore has all of her friends there? And how old is she?

You guys are killing me. :icon_bigg



I agree with the previous poster about being kidnapped by a parent. It's heartbreaking for the one with custody but the kid's probably alright.

Shanae was born in 1998. Don't know if she wanted to live with her mom or her dad but that doesn't really matter now because her mom (check out the FBI wanted poster) already made that decision for her.

I'm with TheKitnerBoy on this. Yeah, it sucks for the dad but as far as criminals go this one is a pretty low priority unless the mom is a druggy, abusive, etc. From what I can tell from the FBI wanted poster, all the mom is guilty of is wanting to have her daughter with her. I do hope that the daughter is aware enough that if she was being abused that she would tell someone in authority and be returned to her dad.

But if she's living in a healthy environment & is happy & surrounded by friends, I can't be that upset. And yes, her mom did make that decision, but maybe Shanae agrees with it?

Gotta agree with you on this. The only thing I wonder is what kind of stories the mother has told the child to keep her from contacting her father and step-mother. Did she tell them that they hated her or didn't want her anymore? Have she & the mother assumed new identities and looks?

This bothers me because as much as she may be in a healthy environment and have friends and everything, what kind of psychological damage is being done to the kid?

It's a pity when parents can't get along for the sake of their children.

Update.

I get all kinds of worried when my dog takes off for a few hours. Can't imagine what it must be like to have your daughter gone for two years.

Child Found After Missing For Two Years

Shanae Peterson - Recovered Child
Perry and Eileen Sharp - Fugitives Arrested

In October of 2007, the U.S. Marshals Service was asked for assistance in locating and apprehending fugitives Eileen and Perry Sharp. In August of 2006, the FBI obtained an Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution warrant for the Sharps based on felony warrants in the non-custodial abduction of Shanae Peterson. The United States Marshals Service-led Black Hills Fugitive Task Force adopted the felony cases upon request.

Eileen Sharp initially had custody of Shanae with a court order from a South Dakota court to allow specific visitation for the father, Layne Peterson. Sharp violated the court order by not allowing the required visitation.

Layne Peterson petitioned the court in Beadle County South Dakota to revisit custody and visitation rights. The Court reversed custody and gave physical custody to Layne. The Court also ordered Eileen Sharp to turn Shanae over to her father on or before August 15, 2006. Perry and Eileen Sharp along with Shanae fled the area on or about August 12, 2006.

During the course of this investigation, a tip was received through Americas Most Wanted on September 19, 2008. The tip involved a person who had worked with Perry Sharp in Dawson Creek, BC, Canada. The tipster stated he was on the internet and at some point ended up on the Americas Most Wanted website. At that time, he saw a picture of Perry Sharp. The tipster recognized the photo but knew Perry Sharp as Robert “Bobby” Evans. A photo of Eileen and Shanae were also shown on AMW. The tipster stated Eileen Sharp was using the name of Dorothy Evans and Shanae Peterson’s name was Shannon Evans.

A lead was sent by U.S. Marshals from South Dakota to U. S. Marshals International, along with the tip and other information concerning the case. Deputy Marshal Alex Claunts, from Idaho was then contacted. Deputy Marshal Claunts contacted the Royal Canadian Mounted Police who then began confirmation of the sighting in Dawson Creek.

On Monday, September 29, 2008, positive identification was made and Perry and Eileen Sharp were arrested without incident. The Sharp’s admitted their true identity and are awaiting deportation from Canada. Shanae was taken from school and arrangements are being made by Canadian authorities to return her to her father in South Dakota.

WOW...AMW does it again...that show is amazing...one barber cuts a kids hair a little too short and his dad turns around and starts a show that captures tons of criminals. Congrats to your friend on getting his kid back. I hope the girl can adjust after being taught by people she trusted to lie to everyone.

Good outcome.

Yeah... that's great and all, but the kid was ten years old. Don't most ten year olds know how to operate a telephone? The kid was going to school ferchrissakes... all she would've had to do was stroll into the Principal's office and say, "My mom abducted me. My real name is Shanae Peterson." and bingo, the jig would've been up. It doesn't seem like the kid was involved in a living hell or anything.

I'm not saying there's nothing wrong with the situation, but the kid was being cared for by people who loved her. There are many, many, many kids in this awful world in much, much, much worse situations.

You are asking for adult behavior & reasoning from a 9 year old. You don't know what the kid was told or threatened with. She was with her mother & stepfather, she may not have known she was missing or that her father was looking for her. Nothing in the articles here give a reason why the child was being removed from her mother's care. It could be as simple as a desire to keep all the children together or there could have been shenanigans going on. Nobody here can say if she was living in hell or not, even if she was with people that "love" her.

I know my first name is Shanae.
Apples and oranges. Shanae was abducted by her mother, Steven Stayner was abducted by a pedophile. Stayner's brother Corey grew up to be a serial killer, hope Shanae doesn't have siblings.
