    On the FB Page, in the FAQ section, it says Beth's phone is an iPhone and hasn't been used, can't be found and can't be triangulated or pinged, not an option and can't go into why not.

    Anyone have any ideas on this? What could be the reason they can't do any of that?

    What's up with that? Can't be found and can't be triangulated or pinged? How bizarre. I had to repeat it simply because it seems so strange to me.

    That does seem strange... And they can't go into reason for why not? The only thing I can think of is that they can't get a subpoena for the records because the phone is in Beth's name...

    But you can tell if the phone has been used by looking at the online records for usage... I know the iPhone is available exclusively through AT&T, can you check your usage through the net? (I have Verizon, and it's usage is updated immediately after I make a call..) Anyone with AT&T know if it's the same?

    Maybe the phone was destroyed?

    Pure speculation but perhaps it is not that the phone can not be triangulated or pinged but rather attempts to do so have been unsuccesful. I can't imagine "not an option" being related to work, as it is my understanding attorney's phone line's usually recall all incoming and outgoing calls. Unless the phone is on some kind of business network in the company name and due to the "company" being an attorney's office it is not an option? Or the phone is in someone else's name who will not give permission to access the records?

    All speculation and jmo.

    But how would they know if it's been destroyed?

    That would account for no usage, but then they would need the actual phone to tell that. You can still triangulate positions and get previous pings, that's all done through the carrier off of cell towers and they keep records of that... I haven't had AT&T in about 5 years, but I know with my Verizon phone, the only time it's not pinging is when the actual battery has been removed from the phone.

    Another thought. Maybe they can't get a subpeona because there is not enough evidence a crime was committed and Beth did not walk away willingly at this point. Not that I believe she walked away willingly, but perhaps they simply do not have enough evidence yet?

    No, that wouldn't make sense because there are cell phone pings and a map for John Spira's missing persons case and LE seems to think he left of his own accord.

    Hmmmmm........

    My DH has had some business in that area as recently as last week, has Verizon and had no trouble.

    I just have never seen that before about can't be pinged or triangulated and am just very curious what makes this different. Is it that it is an Iphone, ATT or????

    Anyone have any ideas on this? What could be the reason they can't do any of that?

    Perhaps Beth's I-phone was mysteriously found inside the rental car by JW, or by LE after she returned the car at the Woodstock rental lot. The phone could have been planted there by JW and RR to make it look as if Beth might have lost or forgotten her phone in the rental car when she was supposedly dropped off at the train station by JW and this was part of the planned cover up to throw off investigators as to the location of Beth by tracing Beth's phone to a dead end. Was it ever mentioned if the rental car was impounded for forensic evidence? (if it hasn't it should be)

    A scenario like this could also be the reason why AGM or the author of the FAQ's cannot go into detail about why Beth's phone cannot be tracked. You surly would think that if the phone was not traceable by LE it would not be secret information and LE would have come forth to the media and said that they tried to locate her from her cell phone with no success or at least give the public a general idea of the last known location Beth's phone made a call from if successful to aid in the search for her. Unless LE suspects foul play and does not want her abductor(s) to know if a trace was preformed and if it was successful or not and let their conscience get the best of them hoping they will come clean.

    What a coincidence, Beth loses her cell phone and goes missing all at the same time, the perfect reason why she never called home while on the train and her last location cannot be pinpointed from the phone records due to the phone being found in the rental car back in Woodstock.


    If Beth's phone was not found, I would assume her phone was destroyed so that it could not be tracked by LE. If her abductor(s) was smart enough to know that. I just hope they were NOT smart enough to remove the batteries from their own phones while they were disposing of the body so they could not be tracked as well, if that is what actually happen to Beth.

    Here is an interesting article to read about tracking cell phones.

    http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-10451518-38.html

    CNET was the first to report on prospective tracking in a 2005 news article. In a subsequent Arizona case, agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration tracked a tractor trailer with a drug shipment through a GPS-equipped Nextel phone owned by the suspect. Texas DEA agents have used cell site information in real time to locate a Chrysler 300M driving from Rio Grande City to a ranch about 50 miles away. Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile logs showing the location of mobile phones at the time calls became evidence in a Los Angeles murder trial.

    And a mobile phone's fleeting connection with a remote cell tower operated by Edge Wireless is what led searchers to the family of the late James Kim, a CNET employee who died in the Oregon wilderness in 2006 after leaving a snowbound car to seek help.
