Normal The Casey Effect???"

Much like the disappearance of Caylee Anthony, the cases surrounding the disappearances of Lisa Irwin, Tyler Dasher and Sky Metalwala have gripped the nation, leaving many to wonder what is behind the sudden rise in disappearing children.

Unfortunately, the rise in missing children is not so sudden. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, approximately 2,000 children are reported missing in the United States each day.

There is, however, a trend that has become increasingly common in missing children's cases since the acquittal of Casey Anthony, the Florida mother who's acquittal on the charges of murdering her two-year-old daughter Caylee after failing to report the child missing outraged much of the nation.

Since Anthony's acquittal in July, several cases have come to light that are eerily similar to the circumstances surrounding the death of Caylee Anthony.

In the cases of Lisa Irwin, Sky Metalwala and Tyler Dasher (who's remains were found near a cemetery not far from his home), all three children were initially reported missing by their respective mothers, all were said to have been stolen by an unknown assailant from either their crib or, in the case of Sky Metalwala, his car seat, and each of the mothers, despite initial cooperation, have stopped cooperating with law enforcement to some degree.

While it is impossible to establish a direct connection between these missing children's cases to that of Caylee Anthony, the behavior of and stories given by most of these mothers greatly mirror that of Casey Anthony.

Did the acquittal of Casey Anthony encourage other young mothers, stressed and overwhelmed with the constant responsibility of motherhood somehow trigger the thought that they too could get away with murder? That is a question that remains to be seen.

If, however, the acquittal of Casey Anthony has led to a sort of "Casey Effect" the future of many of America's children may very well be in peril.
