Search for Hannah Anderson/Kidnapped Teen

Hunt for Hannah Anderson and James Lee DiMaggio moves to Idaho wilderness - CSMonitor.com

According to the article about 100 people are currently searching--seems like 10X that many would be needed.

After hearing updates for several days--it sounds like he picked her up from gymnastics/cheerleading but the mother and brother had been invited to his house. So bizarre.

She may not even know that he killed her mother and brother.

Teen found safe in Idaho; alleged abductor killed
Aug. 10,`13 — The man suspected of abducting 16-year-old Hannah Anderson and killing her mother and brother has been killed in Idaho and the teen has been found safe, San Diego County Sheriff's officials said Saturday.
Quote:
The confrontation between 40-year-old James Lee DiMaggio and the FBI happened after a campsite was spotted from the air, according to Gore. Gore said DiMaggio was killed in the shootout, but declined to discuss details, saying authorities in Idaho will release details at a news conference planned Saturday evening. He said San Diego sheriff's authorities have notified Hannah's father that she was rescued. "He was very relieved and very excited and looking forward to be reunited with his daughter," Gore said.

Federal and local law enforcement spent Saturday combing through Idaho's rugged Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness in search of Hannah and DiMaggio. The Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness is the largest roadless area in the lower 48 states, sprawling across central Idaho and reaching north to the Montana border. DiMaggio is suspected of killing Hannah's mother, 44-year-old Christina Anderson, and her 8-year-old brother Ethan Anderson, whose bodies were found Sunday night in DiMaggio's burning house in California near the Mexico border.

This combination of undated file photos provided by the San Diego Sheriff's Department shows James Lee DiMaggio, 40, left, and Hannah Anderson, 16. A massive search entered a seventh day Saturday, Aug. 10, 2013, for DiMaggio, suspected of abducting 16-year-old family friend Hannah. DiMaggio is suspected of killing Hannah's mother Christina Anderson, 44, and her 8-year-old brother Ethan Anderson, whose bodies were found Sunday night in DiMaggio's burning house in California near the Mexico border.

DiMaggio's car was found Friday morning about 40 miles east of the tiny town of Cascade, parked where the dirt road ends and the Sand Creek trailhead enters the wilderness area. Detectives with the San Diego County Sheriff's Department finished searching DiMaggio's car Saturday afternoon. They had the vehicle towed to a garage in Cascade for further processing.

The discovery of the car came about two days after a horseback rider reported seeing the man and girl hiking in the area. Ada County Sheriff's department spokeswoman Andrea Dearden, who is helping the Valley County sheriff's department handle the case, said the rider didn't realize the pair were being sought until he got home and recognized them in news reports.

Body of boy identified as sheriffs search for suspected California kidnapper
The second body found in the burned-out home of a suspected kidnapper belonged to eight-year-old Ethan Anderson, San Diego County officials confirmed on Friday night, as officers searched a remote part of Idaho for the man and a teenage girl thought to be with him.
Quote:
The multi-state search for James Lee DiMaggio and 16-year-old Hannah Anderson narrowed to an area known as the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness on Friday after a rider on horseback spotted two people matching their descriptions, said Ada County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Andrea Dearden. More than 150 agents had gathered to help in the dragnet on Saturday, Dearden said, with dozens more expected to arrive later in the day. With air support and on horseback, they were scouring the isolated area that has only a few scattered cabins and extremely limited cell phone service, she said. “The area is rugged terrain, it is wilderness country, this is backcountry,” Dearden said. The traditional method of sweeping for a missing person along a grid “isn’t going to work here,” she said.

While officials cannot yet be certain that the two people seen earlier this week were DiMaggio and Anderson, police say their goal is to bring the situation to a quick conclusion. “Our ultimate goal is to bring Hannah home safely,” Dearden said. Officials suspect that DiMaggio, 40, set fire to his own house killing the young boy and his mother, Christina Anderson, 44. They suspect he kidnapped Hannah, setting off a search that expanded to Canada and Mexico. Ethan Anderson had been classified as missing as the search went on, and the identification of the body was confirmed by DNA analysis, the sheriff's office said. San Diego sheriff’s officials have said DiMaggio might have had an “unusual infatuation” with Hannah, and earlier this week the girl’s father pleaded for his daughter’s safe return: “If you have a chance, you take it. You run. You’ll be found.”

The horseback rider told authorities he saw an adult man and teenage girl near Morehead Lake in the secluded region of Idaho on Wednesday evening, Dearden said on Friday. The couple seemed odd, but did not strike him as dangerous, Deaden told reporters. “There was nothing immediately alarming about this pair,” Dearden said. San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said at a news conference earlier on Friday that the two people spotted on Wednesday appeared to be in good health when they were seen on foot with camping gear. “As far as we know, it didn’t look like she was being held against her will,” Gore said.

The two were seen about six to eight miles from where a Nissan Versa was found in the remote region outside the city of Cascade. The car, which matched the description of one driven by DiMaggio, was found covered with brush and without any license plates. A check of the car’s vehicle identification number confirmed it to be DiMaggio’s, according to the sheriff. A search of the vehicle found no explosive devices in or near the car, according to the sheriff’s office in Ada County, Idaho. Authorities had warned on Thursday that DiMaggio might have booby-trapped the car with explosives. Sprawling across more than 3,500 square miles, the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness is crisscrossed by deep canyons and rivers. Gore said he is confident Hannah Anderson will be returned safely. “She was alive on Wednesday and we hope that law enforcement will find them up in the mountains there and return them safely,” the San Diego sheriff said.

Rescued teen Hannah Anderson to be reunited with dad
11 Aug.`13 - After a manhunt that went nearly a week and began in California, a teen girl is safe after a harrowing alleged kidnapping that ended with gunfire in Idaho's wilderness. With Hannah Anderson now recovering, authorities say she will be reunited with her father
Quote:
Teenager Hannah Anderson is due to be reunited with her "elated" father on Sunday for the first time since a family friend allegedly killed her mother and brother and took off into the wildnerness with her. The 16-year-old was rescued Saturday afternoon in a remote area of Idaho, where kidnapping and murder suspect James Lee DiMaggio, 40, was killed by law-enforcement, authorities said. The teenager was being examined at a hospital in Boise while relatives celebrated her rescue. "We're just so relieved," said the girl's grandmother Sara Britt outside her home in Santee, Calif.

The family said they are waiting to learn the details of Hannah's six-day ordeal. “We don’t know what she saw or heard. Hannah is the only person who knows what happened that night,” grandfather Ralph Britt said on TODAY. The grandmother added that joy over Hannah's recovery will now give way to mourning for her mother and brother. "We had to put the murder of Ethan and Tina on hold in the back of our minds because we had to totally focus on Hannah," Britt said. "So now we can take the time to grieve my daughter and grandson.''

Officials suspect that DiMaggio set fire to his own house last Sunday, killing Hannah's 8-year-old brother, Ethan, and their mother, Christina Anderson, 44. They suspect he then kidnapped Hannah, setting off a search that expanded to Canada and Mexico and saw Amber Alerts issued in several states. A break came when a horseback rider spotted a middle-aged man and a teenage girl hiking in the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness and later realized they were the subjects of a manhunt.

Federal and local law enforcement spent Saturday combing the wilderness after his DiMaggio’s car, a Nissan Versa, was found Friday covered with brush and without license plates. With air support and on horseback, they scoured the isolated area, dotted by only a few scattered cabins and limited cell phone service and figured out where DiMaggio was holed up. The rescue was "very challenging,” Ada County, Idaho sheriff’s department spokeswoman Andrea Dearden said Sunday.

She told TODAY that agents were forced to land a two-and-a-half-hour hike away from where the pair's campsite had been spotted in order to secure the girl’s safety. She declined to discuss details of the operation or whether DiMaggio had fired at agents, saying that a review team would investigate the suspect's death. “Hannah is safe and that was our first priority from the very beginning,” said Valley County Sheriff Patty Bolen at a press conference Saturday. Hannah's father, Brett Anderson, was "elated" his daughter was found alive, San Diego Sheriff Bill Gore said.

Teen, abductor stood out in Idaho wilderness
August 11, 2013 — Almost from the moment he laid eyes on 16-year-old Hannah Anderson and her abductor, James Lee DiMaggio, former Idaho county sheriff Mark John was swept with the feeling that something just didn't seem right about the pair.
Quote:
Initially it was the lack of openness on the trail, a reluctance to engage in the polite exchange of banter or adventures like so many other recreationists John has encountered during his various horseback excursions into Idaho's rugged backcountry. Then John and his partners on horseback puzzled why Anderson and DiMaggio were hiking in the opposite direction of their stated destination, the Salmon River. But more than anything, it was their gear, or lack of it. Neither was sporting hiking boots or rain gear. The 40-year-old DiMaggio, described as an avid hiker in his home state of California, was toting only a light pack. It even appeared Anderson was wearing pajama bottoms. "They just didn't fit," said the 71-year-old John, who retired as Gem County sheriff in 1996. "He might have been an outdoorsman in California, but he was not an outdoorsman in Idaho. ... Red flags kind of went up."

At a news conference Sunday in Boise, John and his three riding mates shared the kind of details from their encounters with Anderson and DiMaggio that helped focus the massive manhunt and rescue effort on a southwest corner of wilderness in the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness, a 3,600-square-mile roadless preserve in the heart of Idaho. On Saturday, after searchers spotted the pair by air, two highly-specialized FBI hostage teams moved in on ground, ultimately rescuing Anderson and killing DiMaggio in a shootout at their encampment at a remote, alpine lake. Anderson was immediately transported to an unidentified hospital. She was expected to be reunited with her father, Brett Anderson, earlier Sunday, but authorities did not disclose any details of their meeting. DiMaggio is also suspected of killing Anderson's mother and brother at his home in Southern California.

Standing out in front of the Ada County Sheriff's Office in Boise, witnesses, from left to right, Mary Young, Mike Young, Mark John and Christa John speak with news reporters Sunday Aug. 11, 2013 about their sighting of Hannah Anderson and James DiMaggio out Morehead Lake.

On Sunday, FBI agents returned to process the scene at the camp at Morehead Lake, about 8 miles inside the wilderness border and 40 miles east of the central Idaho town of Cascade. But authorities made clear Sunday that the rescue may have taken longer if not for the chance encounter with John and the other riders, who included John's wife Christa, 68, and Mike Young, 62, and his wife, Mary Young, 61. The four riders had a second encounter with Anderson and DiMaggio later Wednesday, this one at the lake as they were getting ready to head back down the trail. The Youngs and Johns recalled seeing Anderson soak her feet in the lake and again avoid interaction. Still, nothing about their behavior raised suspicion that DiMaggio was wanted for murder and kidnapping. "If she was sending us signals that she was in trouble, we didn't key in on it," said Mary Young.

It wasn't until Thursday afternoon when the Johns returned home and saw the girl's photographs on the news that they made a connection. After confirming with the Youngs, Mark John immediately called Idaho State Police, setting off the investigation in Idaho. On Friday, police found DiMaggio's car, hidden under brush at a trailhead on the border of the wilderness area. Details about the operation that ended in Hannah's rescue are being released slowly. FBI spokesman Jason Pack said the rescue teams were dropped by helicopter about 2 1/2 hours away from where Anderson and DiMaggio were spotted by the lake. Pack said the team had to hike with up to 100 pounds of tactical gear along a rough trail characterized by steep switchbacks and treacherous footing.

'She told TODAY that agents were forced to land a two-and-a-half-hour hike away from where the pair's campsite had been spotted in order to secure the girl’s safety. '

From the clips on CNN the FBI team arrived at the search area in a Uhaul truck. The campsite was said to be only about 8 miles from where they were spotted on Wednesday.

This is the premier FBI hostage team/comparable to the SEALS? I am certain there is much that can never be disclosed about how this operation was conducted.

Vaguely remember a huge dispute over how the capture of the LA PD officer/suspect was apprehended--in a blazing fire. 'Did he shoot at the SWAT team?'

Perhaps I should care--but I don't. This man killed 2 people and kidnapped Hannah Anderson (and possibly a number of other charges). If you are going to go that route then I think you should be prepared for extreme consequences.

Glad to know we have this level of expertise available.

Abducted California girl didn't know her mom, brother were slain: sheriff
Mon Aug 12, 2013 (Reuters) - A 16-year-old California girl rescued in the Idaho wilderness after her kidnapper was shot to death by the FBI was unaware until after she was freed that her mother and brother were slain a week earlier, the San Diego County sheriff said.
Quote:
Hannah Anderson, left badly shaken by her ordeal, was informed while being debriefed by authorities after her rescue on Saturday that her mother, Christina Anderson, 44, and her 8-year-old brother, Ethan, had been killed by her kidnapper a week earlier, Sheriff Bill Gore said.

Addressing an afternoon news conference after the teenager had been reunited with family in California, Gore also sought to dispel any notion that she might have willingly accompanied the suspect, James Lee DiMaggio, 40, a longtime family friend of the Andersons. "It became very clear to us that she is a victim in every sense of the word of this horrific crime," Gore said. "She was under extreme, extreme duress."

Gore also revealed that Hannah had told authorities that DiMaggio was armed with a rifle and fired at least one round before being shot to death by FBI agents in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness on Saturday. The bodies of the teen's mother and younger sibling were found August 4 in the burned-out ruins of DiMaggio's house in the rural community of Boulevard, California, about 45 miles east of San Diego.

Man killed in Idaho mirrored father's actions
12 Aug.`13 — A man suspected of abducting a 16-year-old family friend after killing her mother and younger brother died in a shootout with FBI agents exactly 15 years after his father committed suicide, a family spokesman said Monday.
Quote:
James Lee DiMaggio, 40, appears to have followed in his father's footsteps in a carefully laid plan, said Andrew Spanswick, a friend who runs a behavioral treatment center in West Hollywood. "He clearly had a death wish," Spanswick said. DiMaggio is suspected of killing 44-year-old Christina Anderson and 8-year-old Ethan Anderson and leaving their bodies in his burning home near San Diego on Aug. 4. He triggered a massive search in much of the western United States and parts of Canada and Mexico for Hannah Anderson, who was rescued in Saturday's shootout. Spanswick said DiMaggio's father disappeared exactly 15 years before the house was set on fire.

James Everet DiMaggio was addicted to methamphetamine and had a troubled life marred by criminal activity, Spanswick said. His cause of death was listed as dehydration, but he consumed a large amount of methamphetamine intravenously and "walked into the desert," he said. The elder DiMaggio was arrested in 1988 after breaking into the home of his ex-girlfriend, wearing a ski mask and a carrying a sawed-off shotgun and handcuffs, Spanswick said. The former girlfriend wasn't home, but DiMaggio held her 16-year daughter and her boyfriend at gunpoint. The girl escaped after asking to use the bathroom. The elder DiMaggio later spent time in prison after pleading guilty to assault with a deadly weapon for a 1989 beating of two people with a baseball bat at a motel in El Cajon, east of San Diego.

The Evening Tribune of San Diego described him as a 35-year-old transient, former car salesman and divorced father of two. He died in 1998. Spanswick said he confirmed details of the elder DiMaggio's criminal history and death with Lora Robinson, James Lee DiMaggio's sister and only surviving family member. Robinson, who did not respond to phone messages, asked Spanswick to serve as a family spokesman. The victim of the elder DiMaggio's kidnapping attempt — now an adult — told KFMB-TV that her attacker professed his love after breaking up with her mother and announced he was taking her away to "give me a good life." She pleaded with him not to kill her, her boyfriend and her brother. "Don't worry, it'll be over quick," the woman remembered the elder DiMaggio saying.

The woman, who was not identified by the television station and whose face was blurred on camera, attended El Cajon High School, near San Diego, with James Lee DiMaggio. After the episode, KFMB said, she changed her name and moved. The younger DiMaggio was like an uncle to the Anderson children and close friends with their parents for many years. Spanswick, who often went hiking with him and his brother-in-law, said neither he nor the Anderson family noticed anything strange about his behavior. Spanwick said he alerted authorities Friday when Robinson told him the date of her father's death. "There's too much coincidence for this not to be directly associated with that," he said. Spanswick said the siblings made a pact not to follow in their father's footsteps. "Her brother broke that trust and he never called her," he said.

'We may never know his motive'--nor do we need to concern ourselves with him. I turned the TV off when Piers Morgan started interviewing his friend--some sort of psychologist.

One bullet--all that was needed.

There had better not be any further questions on how this was handled.

Calif. teen says captor deserved to die
Aug 14,`13 -- The 16-year-old California girl kidnapped by a close family friend suspected of murdering her mother and 8-year-old brother says he threatened to kill her if she tried to escape and got what he deserved when he died in a shootout with authorities in the Idaho wilderness.
Quote:
Hannah Anderson went online barely 48 hours after her rescue Saturday and started fielding hundreds of questions through a social media site. Many were typical teenage fare - she likes singer Justin Bieber and her favorite color is pink - but she also answered queries about how she was kidnapped, how she survived captivity and how she is dealing with the deaths of her mother and brother. The postings started Monday night, hours after her father publicly requested that the family be allowed to grieve and heal in private. Brett Anderson didn't respond to a text message seeking comment about his daughter postings, which continued into Tuesday evening. Police have said little about their investigation. Jan Caldwell, a spokeswoman for the San Diego County Sheriff's Department, said authorities are aware of the online comments but couldn't confirm the account is Hannah's.

The postings appear on the ask.fm social-networking site account for "Hannahbanana722" of Lakeside, the San Diego County community where the teen lived with her mother and brother. At one point during the lengthy series of posts, a questioner asked Hannah to post a photo and she complied. The image shows her with a wide smile. Dawn MacNabb, whose son, Alan, is one of Hannah's closest friends, confirmed the postings were by the teen. Alan spoke on the phone with Hannah on Tuesday and urged her to delete some of the postings, MacNabb said. "He said she was going to, but I don't know if she will," she said. Anderson declined interview requests from news organizations that posted to her account.

She was kidnapped Aug. 4 by James Lee DiMaggio, 40, her father's best friend who was like an uncle to her and her brother, Ethan. DiMaggio had invited the children and their mother, Christina Anderson, 44, to his house in Boulevard, a rural town 65 miles east of San Diego. "He told us he was losing his house because of money issues so we went up there one last time to support him, and to have fun riding go karts up there but he tricked us," Anderson wrote. Anderson said DiMaggio tied up his mother and brother in his garage. Their bodies were found after a fire destroyed the home. She said she didn't know they had died until an FBI agent told her at the hospital after rescue Saturday. "I wish I could go back in time and risk my life to try and save theirs. I will never forgive myself for not trying harder to save them," she wrote.

Anderson said she "basically" stayed awake for six straight days and DiMaggio ignored her requests for food. She couldn't try to escape because DiMaggio had a gun and "threatened to kill me and anyone who tried to help." Anderson said she was too frightened to ask for help when four horseback riders encountered the pair in the remote wilderness on Wednesday. The riders didn't report the sightings to police until the next day, after returning home and learning about the massive search spanning much of the western United States and parts of Canada and Mexico. "I had to act calm I didn't want them to get hurt. I was scared that he would kill them," she wrote.

The girl said DiMaggio threatened to kill her if she didn't help hide his blue Nissan Versa with tree branches. Authorities discovered the car Friday, leading to her rescue the following day. Asked if she would have preferred DiMaggio got a lifetime prison sentence instead of being killed by FBI agents, she said, "He deserved what he got." Anderson acknowledged being uncomfortable around DiMaggio even before the ordeal, saying he once told her that he was drawn to her. "He said it was more like a family crush like he had feelings as in he wanted nothing bad to happen to me," she wrote. She said she didn't tell her parents because DiMaggio was his father's best friend "and I didn't want to ruin anything between them."

having read that--I am going to try very hard not to hear whatever will be said on TV.

'if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck--smells like a duck--'

Too much overanalyzing.

they did manage to find a US Marshall involved in the rescue--he said the team was glad things worked out well for Hannah.

Go Idaho!

Abducted California girl didn't know her mom, brother were slain: sheriff
Mon Aug 12, 2013 (Reuters) - A 16-year-old California girl rescued in the Idaho wilderness after her kidnapper was shot to death by the FBI was unaware until after she was freed that her mother and brother were slain a week earlier, the San Diego County sheriff said.
Quote:
Hannah Anderson, left badly shaken by her ordeal, was informed while being debriefed by authorities after her rescue on Saturday that her mother, Christina Anderson, 44, and her 8-year-old brother, Ethan, had been killed by her kidnapper a week earlier, Sheriff Bill Gore said.

Addressing an afternoon news conference after the teenager had been reunited with family in California, Gore also sought to dispel any notion that she might have willingly accompanied the suspect, James Lee DiMaggio, 40, a longtime family friend of the Andersons. "It became very clear to us that she is a victim in every sense of the word of this horrific crime," Gore said. "She was under extreme, extreme duress."

Gore also revealed that Hannah had told authorities that DiMaggio was armed with a rifle and fired at least one round before being shot to death by FBI agents in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness on Saturday. The bodies of the teen's mother and younger sibling were found August 4 in the burned-out ruins of DiMaggio's house in the rural community of Boulevard, California, about 45 miles east of San Diego.

Man killed in Idaho mirrored father's actions
12 Aug.`13 — A man suspected of abducting a 16-year-old family friend after killing her mother and younger brother died in a shootout with FBI agents exactly 15 years after his father committed suicide, a family spokesman said Monday.
Quote:
James Lee DiMaggio, 40, appears to have followed in his father's footsteps in a carefully laid plan, said Andrew Spanswick, a friend who runs a behavioral treatment center in West Hollywood. "He clearly had a death wish," Spanswick said. DiMaggio is suspected of killing 44-year-old Christina Anderson and 8-year-old Ethan Anderson and leaving their bodies in his burning home near San Diego on Aug. 4. He triggered a massive search in much of the western United States and parts of Canada and Mexico for Hannah Anderson, who was rescued in Saturday's shootout. Spanswick said DiMaggio's father disappeared exactly 15 years before the house was set on fire.

James Everet DiMaggio was addicted to methamphetamine and had a troubled life marred by criminal activity, Spanswick said. His cause of death was listed as dehydration, but he consumed a large amount of methamphetamine intravenously and "walked into the desert," he said. The elder DiMaggio was arrested in 1988 after breaking into the home of his ex-girlfriend, wearing a ski mask and a carrying a sawed-off shotgun and handcuffs, Spanswick said. The former girlfriend wasn't home, but DiMaggio held her 16-year daughter and her boyfriend at gunpoint. The girl escaped after asking to use the bathroom. The elder DiMaggio later spent time in prison after pleading guilty to assault with a deadly weapon for a 1989 beating of two people with a baseball bat at a motel in El Cajon, east of San Diego.

The Evening Tribune of San Diego described him as a 35-year-old transient, former car salesman and divorced father of two. He died in 1998. Spanswick said he confirmed details of the elder DiMaggio's criminal history and death with Lora Robinson, James Lee DiMaggio's sister and only surviving family member. Robinson, who did not respond to phone messages, asked Spanswick to serve as a family spokesman. The victim of the elder DiMaggio's kidnapping attempt — now an adult — told KFMB-TV that her attacker professed his love after breaking up with her mother and announced he was taking her away to "give me a good life." She pleaded with him not to kill her, her boyfriend and her brother. "Don't worry, it'll be over quick," the woman remembered the elder DiMaggio saying.

The woman, who was not identified by the television station and whose face was blurred on camera, attended El Cajon High School, near San Diego, with James Lee DiMaggio. After the episode, KFMB said, she changed her name and moved. The younger DiMaggio was like an uncle to the Anderson children and close friends with their parents for many years. Spanswick, who often went hiking with him and his brother-in-law, said neither he nor the Anderson family noticed anything strange about his behavior. Spanwick said he alerted authorities Friday when Robinson told him the date of her father's death. "There's too much coincidence for this not to be directly associated with that," he said. Spanswick said the siblings made a pact not to follow in their father's footsteps. "Her brother broke that trust and he never called her," he said.

Rescued Teen Hannah Anderson Makes Appearance at Fundraiser
15 Aug.`13 Hannah Anderson, the California teen rescued over the weekend as FBI agents shot and killed her suspected kidnapper in Idaho, arrived unexpectedly this evening at a fundraiser to benefit her and help pay for the funeral expenses of her mother and brother.
Quote:
In her first public appearance since the rescue, Anderson, 16, arrived at the Boll Weevil restaurant in Lakeside, Calif., shortly after 4 p.m. PT, according to ABC News affiliate KGTV. She made no statement as she walked into the fundraiser, which was closed to the media. Her father, Brett Anderson, told reporters, "Hannah sends her love. She's doing good day by day. And we'll just keep moving forward from here. "Right now, we're just looking for her future and get her settled," he added.

The fundraiser was to benefit Hannah Anderson and help pay funeral costs for her mother, Christina Anderson, 44, and younger brother, Ethan, 8, who were killed as she was kidnapped Aug. 4 by James DiMaggio, 40, a family friend. A handwritten note was recovered from the scorched home where DiMaggio tortured and killed Hannah's mother and brother, according to warrants released today by the San Diego County Sheriff's Office. The content of the note was not revealed and police declined to say whether it was related to Hannah Anderson's kidnapping. The warrants released today also revealed that DiMaggio likely used incendiary devices to set two separate fires after he "tortured and killed" Christina Anderson and Ethan.

One blaze was set in his house, where Ethan's body was found burned beyond recognition, according to authorities. The second fire was set in DiMaggio's garage, where Anderson was found under a tarp, according to the warrants. After killing the pair, DiMaggio kidnapped Hannah Anderson, setting off a tense, six-day manhunt that ended last Saturday in the Idaho wilderness when FBI agents shot and killed the suspect, DiMaggio, and rescued the teen. Anderson fielded questions about her ordeal on social media site ask.fm, but later disabled her account. A source briefed on Anderson's case confirmed to ABC News that the posts made on the site were from the teen but was unable to confirm any of the information the teen shared.

According to Anderson, DiMaggio tricked her family into coming to his Boulevard, Calif., home. "He told us he was losing his house because of money issues so we went up there one last time to support him, and to have fun riding go karts up there but he tricked us," she wrote. She added that DiMaggio tied up her mother and brother in his garage. Authorities said that Anderson did not learn of her mother and brother's deaths until after her rescue, when an FBI forensics interviewer told her the news. "I wish I could go back in time and risk my life to try and save theirs. I will never forgive myself for not trying harder to save them," Anderson wrote.
