IIRC, it was noted in the media (can't remember where- I'll try to find the link) that LE had to break a window in order to remove the dog. So it sure doesn't sound like windows were opened, because even if they were just cracked LE could have popped a door, not broken a window.
IMO, that dog was not in that vehicle for the length of time indicated.
Which changes everything.
At the very least, we need to rework the timeline; as well as consider the fact that the Jamisons may not have been on the mountain that day. And without a doubt, someone was on the mountain with the dog at a much later date.
Or possibly there was a reason why the Sheriffs dept used the dog as evidence that the Jamisons LS timeline was valid.
But it is not.
Although considering the ease of popping a door and the fact that most LE carry slim jims.....I still don't really get it. Maybe it was broken by the individual(s) who first found the truck. IDK.
I'm not positive, but I thought mtrooper said there were bags of chips in the truck.
Okay. So.... What are some of the possible ramifications, supposing the dog was placed in the vehicle at some point after said vehicle was abandoned? I sign on to that theory, but what might it mean in terms of the disappearance? Ideas?? I'm boggled (but I was boggled long before this). Who might have put the dog in the truck? Why? Where had the dog been in the interval? (And how does it affect the odds on my oft-stated [and much ridiculed!] theory that the Jamisons left of their own accord?)
Each new possibility in this case is like another explosion in a jigsaw puzzle factory. The bits and pieces keep getting smaller, and scattering in the wind.
Also, wasn't there some mention of a security system in their home? Or do I have that wrong?
So....now we :
A: do not know how long the vehicle was abandoned for.
B: do not know where the dog was prior to being found in the vehicle.
C: where the dog was in the interval
D: why the dog might have been placed in the vehicle at a later date.
E: if, in fact, the man last known to have seen/spoken to the Jamisons was in fact the last person to have seen them
F: do not know but I think can safely assume that another vehicle was involved on the mountain during that time period (at or close to where the Jamison truck was found.)
As for the elective disappearance theory- I think it may give it more weight.
Quick question (unrelated):
Does anyone have the make, model, or year handy on the abandoned vehicle on the mountain? Need the info relatively quickly. TIA
It iI am going to look at the truck's photo I can make a good guess but not exact on the year the vin number would tell us all of that.

All I can tell is that it's a Ford.
It has 250 written on the right fender.
It is a 1986 ford 250 4 wheel drive two tone dark blue and tan.
Ok, I come up with a 1990-91 Ford F250. I'm going by looking at the window behind the passengers side. It has a bar in the middle.
Ford didnt change alot but by 88 the side marker light was gone and the front had a slightly straighter edge.
Also I think they call it a 250 xlt.
Looks like they both have a bar down the middle of the window.
