John Charlton played the right section of concerned boyfriend during an trade with Jorga Bass—until she talked about what the law states.

“A police officer has to speak to you since you may function as the final one who saw her,” she texted Charlton, relating to a Seattle Police statement of likely cause report filed in a Seattle-area court Tuesday.

Charlton never ever responded.

Bass’s child had mysteriously vanished on April 8 after supposedly happening a date with Charlton in the Seattle Mariners house opener. The day that is following Lyne, 40, had been allowed to be house to manage her three daughters whenever her ex-husband dropped from the 12-year-old, 10-year-old, and 7-year-old girls.

“My title is John, I was thinking she had been along with her children today,” Charlton had written straight back.

“When did the thing is her final?” Bass fired right back. “She’s maybe not right here, her phone will be here and driver’s permit and bag but she’s maybe maybe not, please react, I’ve called 911.”
