Dreamer: Bonnie M. Wells

blank

I don't know where I was, but I could see a blond haired woman laying in a semi-curled position, surrounded by darkness.

She appeared to be in some distress and was struggling to reach something, but I don't know what it was.

As I continued to look at the woman I thought - "That's Allison Jackson-Foy." And I awoke from the dream.

Allison Jackson-Foy was abducted from Wilmington, North Carolina on July 29th, 2006, and was eventually found murdered in 2008. Her case is posted on this web site and I have been aware of it from day one - so why I would dream that she was alive, but in distress, was somewhat confusing to me - UNTIL - I turned on the TV on May 27. Then I realized what had happened.

It was not the first time I'd had such an experience. One time before, local authorities searched for a missing girl, while I dreamed that Stephanie Evans was riding in a van with a dark haired man and woman.

Stephanie Evans had been murdered, and her body found some time before the missing girl even disappeared, so I knew it was not Stephanie. I also knew the so called 'missing girl' was alive and well .... and I knew a whole lot more about that situation too, but no one ever wanted to hear it.

But, for today, I want to get to the news reports that greeted me as soon as I turned the TV on ......

Mom Abducted, Daughter Missing

The woman who made a 9-1-1 call yesterday was stricken with fear.

In a terrified voice, police said, 38-year-old Bonnie Ann Sweeten told how she had been grabbed by two men after a minor accident in lower Bucks County, shortly before 2 p.m., shoved into the back of a Cadillac and driven away.

She said that her 9-year-old daughter, Julia Rakoczy, had been with her but remained in her vehicle, a GMC SUV. It was not at the scene when cops arrived.

An Amber Alert was issued for the girl.

Lt. Frank Vanore, Philadelphia police spokesman, said that the woman told the 9-1-1 operator that she was driving her silver-colored 2005 GMC Denali SUV on Street Road near Southampton Road in Upper Southampton Township when a black Cadillac rear-ended her vehicle.

She said that she got out of the vehicle and two men jumped out of the Cadillac, grabbed her and forced her into the trunk.

"It seems like a very distressed call," Vanore said. "You could tell she was scared."

The woman gave her name and how to reach her husband, Richard Larry Sweeten, of Feasterville, but she said nothing about what her abductors might have said to her, Vanore said.

Julia Rakoczy was described in the Amber Alert as being 4 feet 1 with long brown hair, blue eyes and a dime-sized birthmark on her forehead.

Although the abduction occurred in Bucks County, Vanore said that the 9-1-1 call was traced to a tower that placed it near 12th and Walnut streets, in Center City.

The FBI joined the investigation later in the day.

"We're treating this as an abduction," said FBI spokesman J.J. Klaver, while acknowledging that there were "inconsistencies" in the woman's account.

The Denali's Pennsylvania license number is GYK8998.

Bonnie Sweeten is described as 5 feet 11 with blond hair and blue eyes.

Last night, the Sweeten home on Saxon Drive near Bristol Road, Feasterville, was the mecca for well-wishers, many of them visibly upset and teary-eyed. There was no one in the house, and visitors stood outside.

Kate Carr, who said that she is Bonnie's aunt, arrived with her teenage son.

"I'm still in shock," she said through her tears. "But she's a good mom. She loves her kids, and she is protecting Julia. I know she's protecting her."

Bonnie and her husband also have an 8-month-old daughter, and Bonnie has another daughter, Paige, 15, from a previous relationship.

Also at the house was Ryan McFadden, 15, who works with Richard Sweeten in his landscaping business, which he operates from his home.

McFadden said that he and his mother heard about the abduction on the news and he came racing to the house.

At least 10 people left messages of support on Bonnie Sweeten's Facebook page last night, including one that said: "The whole class of '89 is praying for you."

Sweeten's page said that she graduated in 1989 from Bensalem High School.

Under the section for favorite quotations, she added, "I always tell Paige and Julia 'Make Good Choices' before they leave for school or go on a trip without me or a parent."

Reports that Philadelphia police impounded a black Cadillac that was suspected to have been involved in the incident could not be confirmed last night.*

Staff writers Gloria Campisi and David Gambacorta contributed to this report.

FBI Seeks Pa. Woman

Reported Being Held In Trunk

The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA - A woman and her daughter were abducted Tuesday and forced into the trunk of a car after being rear-ended on a suburban road, the FBI said.

Bonnie Sweeten, of Feasterville, told a 911 dispatcher that she and her daughter had been coerced into the trunk of the car that rear-ended her and that her SUV had been stolen, FBI special agent J.J. Klaver said.

It was unclear whether Sweeten, 38, knew the two men she said kidnapped her and her 9-year-old daughter, Julia Rakoczy.

"Until we can locate them and interview them, we don't really know," Klaver said. "Right now, we're treating this as an abduction based on the information provided in the 911 call."

The call was traced to a downtown Philadelphia cell phone tower, Klaver said.

Investigators found a Cadillac in Hunting Park with front-end damage and scratches of silver paint late Tuesday, Action News reported. But nothing inside the trunk or inside the car linked the vehicle to the kidnapping.

Authorities were looking for Sweeten's 2005 gold or silver GMC Yukon Denali, which has Pennsylvania license plate GYK-8998, and a 1990s black Cadillac.

My Comments

All I can say at this time is that I believe I may have tapped into this situation because of several different things.

{1} The name Bonnie - which is also my first name:

{2} Bonnie Sweeten does resemble Alison Jackson-Foy:

{3} The license number on Bonnie Sweeten's vehicle contains the 989 - which is the beginning of my phone number here in Ohio:

{4} Her vehicle is a silver SUV, and I drive a silver Grand Cherokee, Limited:

And, in conclusion, I'll just say that the first time I received a dream involving a female that had supposedly been abducted - but which was represented by another 'murder victim' and one in which every instinct in me said - 'no, she was not abducted' - and it turned out I was right, then I'll stick with my instincts until further notice.

The FBI and other authorities might want to check in Ohio and in North Carolina for the missing Bonnie Sweeten and her daughter.

Pennsylvania Mother Arrested on Charges She Faked Abduction With Daughter

blank

A Pennsylvania woman was arrested Wednesday after her story about being abducted with her daughter unraveled -- quickly turning from a mysterious missing persons case into a criminal investigation that ended in her capture at the Walt Disney World resort in Orlando.

Bucks County, Pa., District Attorney Michelle Henry said 38-year-old Bonnie Sweeten of Feasterville was taken into custody in Florida around 8 p.m. Wednesday. Henry said Sweeten's 9-year-old daughter, Julia Rakoczy, was with her and is waiting in Florida for her father to meet her.

Sweeten used a co-worker's driver's license and presented it as her own when she bought an airline ticket and flew to Orlando, Fla. on Tuesday, Henry said, adding Sweeten also used the license to check into the Grand Floridian Hotel at Disney World.

Tony Rakoczy, Sweeten's ex-husband and Julia's father, will pick the girl up, Henry said.

A security camera reportedly showed Sweeten and Rakoczy at Philadelphia International Airport, just hours after Sweeten made at least two 911 calls by cell phone saying she was locked in the trunk of a dark-colored 1990s Cadillac.

"It's a terrifying thing for a local community to hear that allegedly two black men in a Cadillac took a woman and her daughter," Henry told reporters at a press conference Wednesday night.

"The fact that she would accuse anybody of doing something ... was a total fabrication on her part," Henry said.

The case was cracked because a combination of factors didn't add up, she said.

Investigators uncovered that Sweeten allegedly was involved in stealing about $300,000 from her former employer, an attorney in suburban Philadelphia, ABC reported.

Detectives and reporters had been puzzled by holes in Sweeten's story, and FBI spokesman J.J. Klaver confirmed earlier Wednesday the existence of "inconsistencies" in her account of the accident and abduction. But he declined at the time to elaborate and said those aren't the focus of the investigation.

Sweeten had told emergency dispatchers that she and her daughter were snatched in the middle of the day Tuesday by two men who rear-ended her SUV in suburban Philadelphia, according to police.

When investigators arrived at the scene, they found no evidence of the crash and the FBI and local police found no witnesses who saw the accident that the missing mother described.

And although Sweeten said the accident took place in Upper Southampton Township, a suburb of Philadelphia, Klaver said authorities discovered her 2005 GMC Denali SUV on Wednesday in Center City, 40 minutes away, along with a parking ticket that indicates it was there about 20 minutes after she dialed 911.

The 911 calls were traced to downtown Philadelphia, about 20 miles from the site of the reported fender-bender and abduction. One was picked up by a cell tower only two blocks from where Sweeten's car was found.

Tony Rakoczy had said earlier Wednesday that the sequence of events didn't add up.

"I don't think it makes any sense, the timeline and everything else," Rakoczy told FOX News.

Sweeten has two other daughters, an 8-month-old with her current husband and a 15-year-old from a previous marriage.

Sweeten's oldest daughter Paige wrote on Facebook, "I'm asking everyone, to please pray for my mom and sister."
