32-year-old Bobbie Maples vanished just days after giving birth to her daughter.

MUSKEGON COUNTY, Mich.- Family members of missing 32-year-old Bobbie Maples say Roosevelt Park Police will be conducting polygraph tests in connection with her disappearance.

Maples was initially believed to have gone missing Monday, Dec. 15, 2014, but Bobbie’s mother Muriel Maples says there is a new witness who stated she saw Bobbie leaving the hospital after visiting her daughter on Tuesday, Dec. 16.

Her mother says police told her a woman saw Bobbie getting into a brown minivan in front of Hackley Hospital in Muskegon with a man who had a long white beard around 3 p.m. that afternoon.

Muriel says though Roosevelt Park Police say there is no evidence that points to foul play or a criminal act, Maples disappeared without any personal belongings. She says abandoning her newborn baby girl in the hospital is something she knows her daughter was not capable of doing.

“I think somebody did something to her, there’s no way first of all she’d leave Airyonna” Muriel said when FOX 17 spoke to her last month. “If she was going to leave Airyonna, she would have called somebody like me to come get her, there’s no way she would just walk out and leave her.”

Bobbie’s sister now has temporary custody of her now 3-month-old daughter.

“I call her phone every day, ya know I send her pictures of the baby on her phone even though the phone’s not working,” Muriel said. “I think somebody might have killed her, myself.”

If you have any information on the disappearance of Bobbie Maples or know where she is you’re asked to call Roosevelt Park Police at 231-755-3721 or Silent Observer at 231-72-CRIME.

    It is FOOLISH and DANGEROUS to use the polygraph as “lie detector” – the theory of “lie detection” is nothing but junk science. It is based on a faulty scientific premise. The polygraph operators have the audacity to say that there is such a thing as a “reaction indicative of deception”, when I can prove that “lying reaction” is simply a nervous reaction commonly referred to as the fight or flight syndrome. In fact, the polygraph is nothing but a psychological billy club that is used to coerce a person into making admissions or confessions. It is FOOLISH and DANGEROUS for government agencies to rely on the polygraph to “test” applicants, or to conduct any type of investigations relating to national security. It is FOOLISH and DANGEROUS for the criminal justice system to rely on an instrument that has been thoroughly discredited to determine whether or not a person is truthful or deceptive, or to use it to guide their investigations in any way – especially when the results cannot even be used as evidence in a court of law! And it is FOOLISH and DANGEROUS for anyone to believe they will pass their polygraph “test” if they just tell the truth! When you factor in all the damage done to people who are falsely branded as liars by these con men and their unconscionable conduct, this fraud of “lie detection” perpetrated by the polygraph industry should be a federal crime! Shame on anyone who administers these “tests” – and shame on the government for continuing to allow this state sponsored sadism!
