I believe Tara's mom is the one that came forward and said it was her. I feel for her but it looks like it wasn't her

Other parents of missing females believed it was their kid as well. The girl is patently not 19 years old & her face doesn't match either. Parents it is understandable, but law enforcement not at all. Then again the answer to the case might be a child of the sheriff, so he was probably happy with the diversion.

Person disappears in plain view in a national park. There is a massive search for the missing person for no more than 10 days. National Park services quit the search. Case gets put in a file. No one sees the file. Paulides has found thousands of cases that fit this scenario and in some cases has been stonewalled by the National Park Services into seeing the files. Some going back to the early 80's. Even under FOIA he's been stonewalled into not getting the missing persons case files and has even had some files redacted.
there are some really strange disappearances in national parks, a child was found on top of a high mound in a swampy place, really hard for the searchers to get there and they were all wet..the child was clean and dry,,, as if someone or something carried him and placed him there.

bodies found on or right next to the trail that searchers went up and down numerous times

What is the deal with that guy? From what I gather he seems to propose that the most likely scenario is that Bigfoot are real & are abducting/killing people. Also believe he got fired from the force for perpetrating a scam. That others who have examined these cases don't see the patterns he does.

The photos are disturbing whether it's Tara or not. The question is, were the girl and boy in danger or was it a tasteless hoax/prank?? That's what gets me.

Impossible to tell, they haven't been matched to any missing kids in 28 years so chances are it was a hoax. Marilyn Manson said he used to dump similar photos at random places in Florida as a teen, so perhaps it was something that was done by pranksters back then.

Police have not taken those photos seriously since the boy some thought resembled a missing child was found in the Arizona wilderness in 1990, having died from exposure. It has been said that Taro Calico was murdered on the date she had disappeared. Some local boys were harassing her in a truck, while she was cycling, but got too close, and seriously injured or killed her by accident when the truck hit the bike.

The boys panicked, and and dumped her body at an unknown location. All that remained at the scene was a cassette tape. The investigator is certain he knows who is responsible for Calico's death, but does not have enough of a case to make a conviction.

Tara Calico is known by most people as a possible match for a tied-up girl in a Polaroid left in a parking lot in the 80s. She went missing on Sept 20, 1988, last seen taking a bike ride along a state road. Pieces of her Walkman and a cassette tape were found on her usual route. /u/kittykatinthehat made a case write-up here.

What most people overlook are the case docs in the public record. I'm attempting to summarize them here and separate the wheat from the chaff since it's a lot of content and 'this person said this thing in an interview'.

Dying man Henry Brown requested an interview with Deputy Frank Methola that is detailed in the case docs (date not included, but I assume it had been many years after her disappearance). Brown stated that he hung out with some troublemaking teens, one of them Lawrence Romero Jr., son of the Sheriff Lawrence Romero Sr. LR Jr. dealt drugs and was also interested in Tara but she was dating another guy, Jeff Abeyta, who also happened to sell drugs.

Brown was partying with LR Jr. and his buddies at LR Jr.'s trailer, specifically the makeshift basement under it. Part of the party talk included LR Jr. and friends talking about how they hit Tara with their truck, then raped and killed her. They hid her body in bushes, and when the search intensified, moved her under a tarp in the makeshift basement and then later to a pond. A man named Donald Dutcher also came forward in late 2013 to say one of the suspects confessed to him.

The problem with the investigation? Well, first off, one of the prime suspects was the son of the Sheriff. Second of all, speculation that Deputy Sheriff (later Sheriff) Rene Rivera was a dirty cop who had their backs. Thirdly? All of the suspects are now deceased. LR Jr. either committed suicide or played a game of Russian Roulette (depending on who you ask) in 1991 and supposedly left a note confessing, which was not entered into evidence by Deputy Rivera. The docs are vague on who the other suspects are so I'm not going to name names (although there are plenty!).

tl;dr Most likely scenario: Tara was deliberately run over by some druggies, one of whom was the Sheriff's son, and all the suspects are deceased so no confessions will be forthcoming, although there is a rumoured suicide note that was covered up by the Deputy Sheriff.

Hey, that Cushelle is really strong. It is bad enough anybody thought that the first photo was Tara when it is patently somebody much younger with a totally different facial shape, but how did the other photos ever get taken seriously by the police?
