GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: Father Pfleger has told church leaders he will no longer speak about candidates by name, though he insists he will still talk about politics.
And there's breaking news in Vermont tonight--an intense search. 12-year-old Brooke Bennett is missing. Could Brooke have been communicating with someone online who knows where she is?
Now, here's what we know. Yesterday morning at 9:00 a.m. Brooke is dropped off at a convenience store in Randolph, Vermont. And--that's it. She has not been seen since.
Earlier police in Vermont spoke about the case.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: During the early morning hours of today, a family member of Miss Bennett located some items off Vermont route 65 in the Brookfield, Vermont, area. One of these items was similar to an item that Ms. Bennett was last seen wearing.
Members of the Orange County sheriff's department, troopers from the Royalton office, state police detectives from throughout the state came to the scene to search the area for Miss Bennett and, also, process the scene where the items were found.
Members of the Vermont state police search and rescue team also responded to the area and searched the immediate and surrounding area in an attempt to find Miss Bennett. So far those results have been negative.
Through this investigation it was learned that Miss Bennett was communicating with an unknown individual online. Members of the Vermont state police computers crime unit are currently examining the computer used by Miss Bennett in an attempt to isolate and identify when she was speaking with the person online prior to her being reported missing.

VAN SUSTEREN: Joining us live from Randolph, Vermont is a Julia Dunn, reporter with WFFF. Welcome, Julia, and are you standing near the convenience store where she was last seen?
JULIA DUNN, WFFF: Yes, it's actually right behind me, the Cumberland Farms in Randolph. That's where she was last seen around 9:00 yesterday morning, when her uncle dropped her off. She was supposed to be meeting up with a friend, and they were going to visit a friend at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. That was almost 40 hours ago.
VAN SUSTEREN: Is there any surveillance tape at all at that convenience store?
DUNN: Yes, there actually is a surveillance tape. It hasn't been released yet, but the police said at the press conference this afternoon that the surveillance tape shows her being dropped off at the Cumberland Farms, and soon after she left on foot, heading towards downtown. But she was alone. She wasn't with a friend.
VAN SUSTEREN: How far is downtown from there?
DUNN: It's actually not too far. It's probably less than half-a- mile. Right where I'm standing right now is actually pretty close to downtown. So it wouldn't have been a far walk.
VAN SUSTEREN: Do you know where the items were found that may be hers? It hasn't been confirmed, but how far that is from where you are?
DUNN: The items that actually family members found this morning -- cops haven't said exactly where they were. But they were off to the side of the road, off of Route 65, which is in the Brookfield area is where they were found. It was where they were doing a lot of searching today.
They haven't confirmed what the items exactly were, but it was something that was similar to what she was wearing. And one of the items has been confirmed as belonging to her.
But, again, the cops aren't being specific on exactly what that item of clothing was, whether it was damaged or stained. That still hasn't been released to the public.
VAN SUSTEREN: Any idea who she was communicating with online?
DUNN: The police have no idea at this time. The Vermont state police computer crimes unit is actually analyzing Miss Bennett's computer, which she was using at her house to communicate with this unidentified person through MySpace.
She had a profile on MySpace. She's 12 years old. She's going to be 13 in two weeks, but she lied about her age on MySpace, as we learned tonight, saying that she was 14.
Police are hoping that scanning her computer is going to shed some light on some clues as to who the person was she was communicating with. But they were -- the messages were talking about a possible meet-up in the area.
VAN SUSTEREN: Now, there's some story about how she was supposed to meet a friend to go visit someone in the hospital. That's completely concocted. It wasn't like she went to meet the person and missed the person. That was always just a fictional story?
DUNN: Yes. Police are really reconsidering the whole story that came out to be gin with, that she is being dropped off to meet a friend, to go to the hospital to visit a relative of her friend's that was in the hospital. They've completely, pretty much debunked that story. And police and, actually, a family member said it was probably a ruse just to get the girl down to that location so she could meet up and do whatever she was going off to do.
VAN SUSTEREN: It's a terrible story. I hope this one has a good ending. Julia, thank you.
DUNN: Thank you.
