SAD NEWS PRAYING FOR THE FAMILY!Slideshow Code:
PRICHARD, AL -
Update: 6:40am Thursday: Police cars, volunteers beginning to gather at the command center off Highway 45. The Salvation Army canteen has also arrived. The search is expected to resume around 7am. A prayer vigil will be held at 8am.
Update: 8:20pm: The search has been suspended for the night. Law enforcement will be back at search headquarters in Prichard at 7 a.m. A press conference is scheduled for 9 a.m. The FBI has also taken over as the lead investigative agency in the case.
"From an investigative point we want to know that we have left no stone unturned, no leaf unturned we want to make sure that we have done everything that we can possibly do," said Prichard Police Chief Mike Rowland. "We do hope that with every step that we do we are coming one step closer to recovering the child and getting her back to her parents."
Update: 7:25pm: Foot searches continue on both sides of St. Stephens Road. We're told dogs have picked up her scent around the apartment complex, but nothing too specific just yet. Although there has not been an Amber Alert issued so far, the FBI's
National Crime Information Center (NCIC) has been alerted and a statewide missing person's report has been issued. It states Haiwayi was last seen wearing a green and white Hello Kitty shirt with purple shorts. She has braids in her hair with clear beads. Police also say surveillance cameras in the complex show no signs of Haiwayi.
Update: 3:30pm: Prichard Police say a helicopter will be brought in to help search.
Update: 2:45pm: Prichard Police have started an "organized knock and talk" search. That includes going door to door in the apartment complex. Chief Michael Rowland says residents are cooperating. He has contacted U.S. Marshals and the FBI to get additional resources on a federal level. He also plans to expand the search and investigation. KlaasKids Search and Rescue Foundation, Mobile County Sheriff's K-9 unit and Mobile Police are also aiding Prichard Police in the search. Police have not ruled out that this may be domestic related.
Update 11:32am: Prichard Police just wrapped up a press conference about the disappearance of Haiwaya D'iland Robinson. The search is being focused in the 1 mile area around St. Stephen's Woods Apartment. The child was going to see her dad last night. Investigators say they consider this to be a domestic situation. They do not believe she is in danger at this point.
A mother is desperate to find her little girl who has been missing since Tuesday evening.
9-year old Hiawayi Robinson was last seen around 4:30pm at the St. Stephens Woods Apartment complex.
Her mother, Yosha Populus, says Hiawayi was going over to her cousin's apartment in the same complex. Hiawayi's dad had called and told her he was headed there.
But according to Populus, the cousin says Hiawayi never made it there.
Populus says Hiawayi knows to always be home by dark. When the little girl never showed up, they called Prichard Police and started searching.
"I went in every breezeway and was screaming her name, calling for her, knocking on doors and nobody has seen her," said Populus.
Melanie Baldwin, the Public Information Officer for Prichard, confirms this is a missing person's case. Baldwin says investigators do not believe Hiawayi was abducted or is in danger. Populus says police interviewed her, Hiawayi's father and Hiawayi's grandmother.
Populus just wants her daughter home safe.
"They will not put an Amber Alert out for my daughter, They say you need a little bit more time. I don't feel like I have time. I need things to go in action right now. I want her back, I want her unharmed."
According to the Alabama Department of Public Safety website, there is a criteria that must be met before an Amber Alert can be issued. That list includes that the child has been abducted, is at serious risk of harm or death and there is enough descriptive information of the child, abductor and/or a vehicle to help locate the child.
"I want my baby home, please help me get my baby home, " said Populus.
If you think you've seen Hiawayi Robinson, call police.
BMB Rockettes, Ms Betty Boop wants to Thank everyone for your thoughts and prayers during her surgery last week.

7/7/2014 UPDATE: Prichard Police have arrested and charged a man with murder for the death of a 21-year-old mother. Richardson Kennedy, 22, is charged with murder and possession of altered firearms. A press release issued by the city of Prichard states there is a possibility other charges are pending.
Police say Kennedy shot his girlfriend Tylandria Rivers, 21, in the head, then staged the home to look like a home invasion.
They say he moved her body from the bedroom to the front door and broke the window in on the wrong side.
The woman's 1-month-old baby was inside the home at the time of the shooting.
The child is now in the care of family members.
PRICHARD, Ala. (WPMI) Prichard Police Department is investigating the death of a 21-year-old woman, who they say was shot.
Dispatchers received a home invasion call at around 3:30p.m. on the 4,000 block off Jarrett Road. At that time, detectives started a homicide investigation after finding the woman dead.
Family asked police to not release the name of the victim at this time.

It's Riding Season................
In the NEWS.......
MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Text messaging on Alabama's public roads will be illegal starting Aug. 1 under a bill signed into law by Gov. Robert Bentley on Tuesday.
Bentley touted the measure as life-saving, comparing it to the state's law requiring motorists wear seatbelts on public roads.
"It doesn't take a lot of common sense to know that you can't text and drive at the same time," Bentley said. "I believe this will save lives."
The bill prohibits sending text messages, instant messages and emails while behind the wheel. It provides exceptions for contacting emergency services and for using global position services.
The bill's signing makes Alabama the 38th state to ban texting while driving. States that make the practice illegal include two of Alabama's neighbors: Georgia and Tennessee.
Alabama's law is a primary enforcement law, meaning any officer can issue a citation without any other traffic offense having taken place.
The law includes a fine of $25 for a first offense, $50 for a second offense and $75 for a third or subsequent offense.
Alabama Public Safety Department of Public Safety director Col. Hugh McCall said distraction from an electronic communication device caused 1,256 accidents, including five fatalities, in 2010 — the most recent year for which data is available.
"Texting while driving is distracted driving, and distracted driving is impaired driving," McCall said. He said that texting while driving caused impairment similar to driving while intoxicated on drugs or alcohol.
McCall said texting while driving takes a motorist's eyes off the road for 4.6 seconds, which would be the equivalent of traveling the length of a football field while driving on the highway.
Rep. Jim McClendon, R-Springville, said he's been pushing to pass the ban for six years.
Concerns over how law enforcement officers would be able to enforce the law or prove a driver was texting were brought up during Legislative debate over the bill. Asked by reporters how law enforcement officers would address that, McClendon said that the cellphone companies keep very good records of messages sent and received. He said officers would be able to use those records to prove that a text was sent while a driver was on the road.
McClendon said the fees were set at a low rate because teenagers were expected to be the ones most often cited for violating the ban, and their parents would likely have to pay the fine.
The bill-signing ceremony was held underneath the Alabama sun on the south side of the state Capitol building. Protesters chanting "repeal Alabama's pain" and other slogans opposing the state's toughest-in-the-nation immigration law interrupted Bentley as he was taking questions from reporters after the bill signing.
NIGHT RIDER IS BACK IN THE STATES FROM AFGHANISTAN!
KABUL, Afghanistan -- When Afghan insurgents attacked Sept. 13, Sgt. 1st Class Kevin Carroll drew upon the same tenets of leadership he learned directing a road crew with the Baldwin County Highway Department.
“You have guys you really have to look out for and make sure everything’s right in terms of safety,” said the Daphne native, who leads a force protection team at the New Kabul Compound, home to 1,200 soldiers.
Carroll, 39, is a member of the Alabama Army National Guard’s 1165th Military Police Company, stationed in Fairhope.
He and 32 others at the compound in Afghanistan’s capital were decorated for their actions during the attack, which lasted 20 hours and also targeted the U.S. Embassy and the International Security Assistance Force’s headquarters in Kabul. There were no casualties among compound forces.
The soldiers received either the Joint Service Commendation Medal or the Combat Action Badge. Some won both.
Of the soldiers decorated, 14 were Alabama Guardsmen, including six from the Mobile area and one from Pensacola:
- Decorated with both the Joint Service Commendation Medal and the Combat Action Badge were: Sgt. Michael McGraw of Mobile; Sgt. Scott Hulsey of Semmes; and Sgt. Cody Talley of Mobile.
- Decorated with the Joint Service Commendation Medal were: Carroll; Sgt. Michael Orso of Citronelle; and Cpl. Jeremy Hagar of Pensacola.
- Spc. Justin Chunn of Theodore was decorated with the Combat Action Badge.
The U.S. Army website states that the Joint Service Commendation Medal honors those who “distinguished themselves by meritorious achievement or service,” while the Combat Action Badge provides “special recognition to soldiers who personally engage, or are engaged by the enemy."
Carroll said he enjoys serving alongside men and women from all over the U.S., but finds special comfort in being around soldiers from back home.
“We’re like a big family,” he said. “When we depart and leave home, we depend on one another.”
They also maintain a few friendly rivalries, according to Carroll, especially during football season. He said that the looming Iron Bowl is already a point of banter and boasting among the 170 members of the 1165th.
The Nov. 26 game, he said, is “going to be a big deal here on this compound.”
But while sports offer a diversion, Carroll’s thoughts of home mainly focus on getting back to his wife, Mildred, and their children and grandchild.
“They’re proud of me, but I’m kind of more proud of them being able to put up with me being gone,” Carroll said. “They deserve the flags and all the accolades that we get.”
According to Carroll, the 1165th is due back in the U.S. toward the end of the year, though no specific date is known at this time. And he is scheduled to retire from the Guard after 22 years of service in March 2012.
DAPHNE, Alabama -- For Alabama Army National Guard Sgt. Kevin Carroll, Christmas this year will be followed quickly by his unit’s deployment to Afghanistan.
For his wife, Mildred, the new year will bring in a yearlong absence of her husband. The situation has made the holidays that much sweeter, if a little more anxious, the couple said.
"Right now, I’m focused on spending time with family," Kevin Carroll said, picking up his squirming, laughing 1-year-old granddaughter, Marlie, as he sat on the living room couch of his Park City home beside his wife.
"It’s a little easier this time because our sons are older and they understand better what’s happening," Mildred Carroll said. "It definitely makes the holidays bittersweet this year, but it’s brought us even closer together."
Their three sons are 21, 16 and 10 years old, this time. When their father last left for an overseas mission, they were 14, 9 and 3, she said.
"I was just glad that he made it back, the first time. I understood well enough to know that that might not happen," 16-year-old Devin said. "We’re looking forward to seeing him next Christmas."
Kevin Carroll, 38, is a member of the 1165th Military Police Company stationed in Fairhope. The Alabama Army National Guard unit last deployed to a war zone in 2003. During its 14 months in Iraq — a longer deployment than any other Alabama unit — 12 members were wounded and one was killed, Spc. Christopher Taylor of Daphne.
Kevin Carroll was there when Taylor was killed Feb. 16, 2004, by shrapnel from a roadside bomb that exploded near the Humvee he was driving.
"I was in the vehicle in front of him," Carroll said. The unit received three citations for its service, including the Presidential Unit Citation, the highest honor that can be bestowed on an entire unit.
The company is set to leave town Jan. 3 for Camp Shelby in Hattiesburg. From there, the unit will leave for Afghanistan within a few days, he said.
A farewell gathering, followed by a parade, for the group of 170 citizen-soldiers is scheduled for noon on Jan. 3 at the Fairhope Civic Center. The event will be followed by a street assembly to send off the troops.
In Afghanistan, the 1165th will be replacing a transportation unit that has been providing security at an established base in an urban area, Kevin Carroll said. They will "fall in" on that unit’s equipment and routines, he said.
The mission’s biggest challenge will be the unit’s young recruits, most of them spending time away from their families in a foreign nation for the first time, he said. Of its 170 members, only about 20 are veterans of the 2003 Iraq tour, he said.
"In a year’s time, always something’s going to happen. Things will be happening at home, and it’ll be painful," he said. "I’ve instilled in the guys under me that we’re going to be just like a family and we’re going to get through it."
The Carrolls said they are both lucky when it comes to employers. Kevin Carroll works for the Baldwin County Highway Department, and his wife works at the Golden Living Center nursing home in Foley.
Mildred said the nursing home let her take two weeks of vacation for the holidays to spend time with her departing husband.
"They’ve never given me a second of trouble about the time I’ve needed off," Kevin Carroll said of the Highway Department. "They just say ‘Hurry back and be safe.’"
