    I'm still wondering about that. Although I realize now that Signal Mt. didn't have much tornado damage compared to the rest of the county, but everywhere else had an emergency situation on that day and power was out all over town, as well as all over Alabama.

    The county where their Wetumpka lake house is located had a tornado on the 27th and power was out there. Was she aware of that?

    The annual rush to Lake Martin this Memorial Day will require some extra care this year as parts of the lake still hold the hidden danger of tornado debris.

    A virtual minefield of debris from houses decimated by the April 27 tornado still floats in parts of the lake around Children’s Harbor, Windemere and areas north of Chimney Rock in Tallapoosa County.
    I've said it before, but police on the radio were telling people to stay off the roads because so many power lines were down. To me she must have been desperate to get away from her husband to leave town that day, especially if she had power! Maybe the cops figured she would be more in control of the situation if they let her take the kids to a safe place. Otherwise, if they asked the husband to leave he might circle back and bother her later - just speculating.

    I hope I'm not stepping on toes with this, but I was watching the video specifically because of Matt's claim that the Jeep had been spotted, and I noticed the previously-provided transcript had parts missing or incorrect. Most of the transcript was spot on, but the last reporter's question and stuff about the Jeep was missing/incorrect, so I did my own transcript. I'm a medical transcriptionist, so it's possible I'm just being fussy. Again, I hope this is okay, and of course feel free to correct me if I goofed.

    ---

    JA (Janice Atkinson): Okay, my name's Janice Atkinson, and I'm with the Hamilton sheriff's office Public Information Office. I would like to thank everyone for being here today, and specifically I appreciate the media assisting with the release of Mrs. Palmgren's picture and description of her vehicle. I am handing out an information release concerning this and would appreciate, in the future, requests for information come straight to my office from all the media. At this time, Mrs. Nichols? Would you like to speak?

    DIANE NICHOLS: My name is Diane Nichols, I am Gail Palmgren's sister, and she's been missing since April 30th, and we have not heard from her or seen her vehicle since. My family asks for your help in finding her. We're asking for the public's help. I'm only one person and this is quite a large area to cover. Please, if anybody has seen her or the vehicle, please, please call the police immediately. Call 911 if you can't remember the number. That number for the Signal Mountain police is 423-886-2123 or, yeah, call 911 immediately. Her vehicle is a 2010 Jeep Rubicon four-door with a black soft top. It has license plates that read “Eazy St,” that’s E-A-Z-Y street. It’s an Alabama tag. Please, if anyone has any information on this vehicle, please call police immediately. If you've seen my sister: She is 44 years old, she's 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighs approximately 135 pounds, has blonde hair and brown eyes. Please, she's got 2 little kids at home that miss their mommy. I'm begging you, please, help us find my sister. Gail, if you're out there somewhere and you can hear this, please call the police, call me, we love you. There are people that are concerned about you that love you and miss you. Please contact somebody, contact. We love you. Please come home. Thank you.

    MATT PALMGREN: Thank you. As you can tell, it’s been a rough 2 weeks for the entire family. I'd like to start off by saying thank you to Chief Veal, Detective Tizzio, all my neighbors that have been out, Diane for coming down, all the family that's helped us look, uh, for Gail. As you can see, the Jeep has been spotted, we’ve been told, on a few occasions out there, so we’re asking for anybody who’s seen that to immediately call their local police and let us know and get more clues to where Gail could be. So, for myself, we've done everything in our power to finding Gail. We've hired a private investigator, we’ve continued to look, we're turning over everything we can. So, as Diane says, it’s like, yell if you hear us, please come forward, [redacted] and [redacted] love you, and please, please show yourself soon. I hope everyone keeps us in their thoughts and prayers. Thank you.

    JA: Okay, this will conclude the press conference today.

    REPORTER #1, CALLIE STARNES: Janice, do we ask questions of you or do we do that on an individual basis?

    JA: There will not be any responses on the investigation at all today. As I said, when information can be released, it will be released immediately.

    CS: Does that mean it will be released from your office? Are you guys now taking the lead on the investigation?

    JA: We're not taking the lead. We're assisting. They have asked me to help with the media.

    CS: So the investigators are not involved, just the Public Information Office at this point?

    JA: Yeah, we have 2 investigators that are assisting Signal Mountain PD.

    CS: Have you guys worked at all with Alabama authorities? I know there's mention of a lake house, is it possible that agencies there will get involved?

    JA: Well, as I said, no investigative information will be released right now.

    REPORTER #2: Janice, are you able to tell us what kind of efforts are being made to find her by the police department if you can't comment on the details yet?

    JA: Every, every effort, every avenue that’s open to locate her is being done by both the Signal Mountain and Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office.

    R #2: Can you tell us if there have been any searches for her, with officers going out and looking in areas where she might be, or...

    JA: Not from the sheriff's office standpoint.

    R #2: Do you know if...

    JA: There is a plan for something later on this week.

    REPORTER #3: Is there anything you can say about the sighting? It was mentioned that her Jeep had possibly been spotted. Can you elaborate on any of that?

    JA: The only thing I can say is that every, every lead that has been passed back to law enforcement has been investigated or is in the process of being investigated.

    CALLIE STARNES: Are there any suspects in the case at this point or anyone that’s been able to provide lead information that you guys have been able to gain anything from?

    JA: At this point, it’s a missing persons investigation, so suspects, no.

    R #2: Janice, is there any reason for the investigation to believe there may be foul play? I know, as you stressed in the press release here, that it’s a missing persons case, but is there anything that leads you to believe that something may have happened to her?

    JA: That's always a possibility and will be looked into by law enforcement.

    CS: Janice, how does this compare to other missing cases that we've dealt with in our area? What are the similarities? What are the differences? Does this one stand out to you?

    JA: I don't think there’s a lot of differences. I mean, each case is unique within itself. From a law enforcement standpoint, we treat every missing report the same. We make every effort to locate the reported.

    CS: A lot has been said about "on air," especially, “Gail, if you hear this, please call us.” Is there still the possibility that she might be somewhere listening to what's broadcasted and that might be an option, a way of getting her home?

    JA: There is always hope that she is still there and listening and will respond, especially to her family members.

    REPORTER #4: Is there a national alert for the car?

    JA: She has been placed in the national missing persons registry.

    R #4: But the car specifically, would that be spotted by...

    JA: No. No.

    JA: Okay, that's all I have. Thank you.

    She would have been in her teens when her mother passed. That must have been pretty tragic for her.

    Okay, notice that at the press conference, Matt says "As you can see, the Jeep has been spotted, we’ve been told, on a few occasions out there." It sounds like meant that this info was on the press handouts given to the media at the press conference.

    However, Diane Nichols specifically stated the Jeep had not been seen. Spokeswoman Janice Atkinson would not confirm anything, and when asked by the male reporter at the end, she said the Jeep had NOT been put in a national registry for cars.

    This is very curious. I already emailed Callie Starnes to see if anything about the Jeep being sighted was in the press info. But since two reporters specifically asked for more information about these sightings (and were given no answers), it sounds a LOT like Matt just made that up.

    I gotta say, of all the hinky things Matt has done up to now, that one really burns my biscuit.

    I have a hunch his attorney is not gonna let him do many more of those press conferences. If he isn't guilty of something he sure makes it look as if he is...... just my opinion again. Gail, please prove me wrong and call your sister - or brother. Let them show you how they will stand right by you through this.

    Ain't that the truth! He said remarkably little about Gail, really. He thanked people, said the Jeep had been spotted several times, then started talking about himself and telling people that he's done "everything in our power". When he got back to talking about Gail, he said "yell if you hear us". Might as well have said "holler when you get back from the grocery store" for all the concern he showed.

    I do hope she's out there somewhere, but I won't lie: I have a really bad feeling about this. And I think LE is going to try to do as little as possible until a vehicle (or worse) is found.

    I do feel that there is foul play here...but it is possible that if Gail left her DL behind and credit cards. she may have had a DL from another state-one perhaps no one else knew about. She may also have had some credit cards only she knew about. She may have felt she needed to leave immediately for some reason, and felt she could come back for the kids at a later date. I suppose it is even possible she had acquired ID and credit cards in a false name, if she ever anticipated she would need to 'hide out'. Just random thoughts..it would be nice if it were that easy...

    Well I think we are watching him sink his ship one way or the other.....

    “We’ve hired a private investigator,” said Matthew Palmgren. “We continue to look. We’re turning over everything we can,” he said at Tuesday’s news conference in Signal Mountain, where the couple live.

    Palmgren, 40, reported 44-year-old Gail Palmgren missing on May 2, according to police records. On May 6, he filed for legal separation from her in Hamilton County Chancery Court and for temporary custody of their 12-year-old son and 9-year-old daughter.

    Palmgren’s attorney, Bryan Hoss, filed a motion Tuesday to continue the order because Gail has not been located and is considered a missing person by authorities. A chancellor is scheduled to rule on the order on June 3.

    All this "we" talk about him and Mr. Hoss's efforts to help find GP, but the same day Hoss filed a motion to continue the order previously filed. Wonder how many posters they both have distributed?

    This scenario is absolutely possible, except that she left the kids. Gail is too smart to plan all that and then leave the most important part to chance! These are smart, mature kids and they would be quite able (IMO) to pull this off with her. One thought that no-one says, is that perhaps they didn't want to leave? I can't really conceive of this, but kids can be strange, and home is home.....

If that were the case, it would explain her not stopping to talk to a neighbor with whom she was friendly.
    IMO, this is one of the only scenarios make makes any sense. My children are close in age to Gail's and after traveling for 4 hours, the first place my children would go when getting home would be to their various electronics. ie: computer, xbox, etc. in their rooms or in the playroom. I would most likely have gone in the house, thrown my purse down, and then started getting things out of the car from the overnight trip. Someone could have easily had access to the house that morning and with the kids occupied, forced Gail into her car. This would explain her leaving her DL and not stopping to acknowledging her neighbor. In a situation where nothing seems to add up, this is just a theroy. I pray that this isn't what happened.
