Three years ago, Everlyse Cabrera disappeared from her foster home in North Las Vegas. Investigators still don't know where she is, but in the last month, they have identified one place she isn't.
From his home office, Private Investigator Jim Conklin pieces together the details of a disappearance from a house not unlike his own, the last place anyone saw little Everlyse Cabrera in foster care in June of 2006.
"I just don't think it's possible that a young child, just 2-years-old, would be able to walk out of that situation. I think somebody took her from that situation," he said.
Everylyse's foster parents, Manny and Vhee Carrascal, speculated to police that Everlyse used a stool to unlock the front door and wander out during the night. That day three years ago was the last time the couple, and their adult son Melvin Balane, cooperated with the investigation.
So when Conklin's initial canvas of the neighborhood revealed the house had changed hands, he contacted the new owners for permission to investigate the property. "When she disappeared, nobody saw anything or heard anything, so the thought was perhaps she had been murdered and buried in the backyard or the grounds surrounding the house. So we felt the primary thing was to search that," he said.
With assistance from the North Las Vegas Police Department and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, investigators recently surveyed the home using cadaver dogs and ground penetrating radar -- tools not available during the original forensic examination of the property.
