    Deca brought up the Butterfly Garden or Park. What's it called? Is it Butterfly World? Plus all the nature parks in that immediate area.

    When Claudia was captured on surveillance by a camera at Calypso Water Park, which side of the road was she on? Was she on the side of Royal Palm that is on the same side as the water park or was she across the highway? We know she was walking east but the direction of which east could be determined by which side of the road she was on.

    I don't know about the surveillance video there, but I think she was on the north side. A friend reported seeing her crossing 441 & Royal Palm/Copans in front of the Volvo dealership, which is on the North side. And then the still from the bus video at Copans & Lyons, she is at the NE corner, appearing to cross to the SE corner. So I think she walked E. along the N. side of the road, crossed Lyons from the NW to NE side, then turned and crossed Copans from the NE to SE side.

    Now, according to google maps the sidewalk ends at that intersection, going E on the North side. So she could have been continuing along Copans, just switching to the South side for more sidewalk. Or she could have gone South from there instead.

    I haven't seen the video from the water park to see if that contradicts.

    They paired the video from the water park with the camera from the passing bus.

    Here's where I'm going with this... If Claudia was going to Broward Transportation, wouldn't she have just taken the road she parked her car on, since it's a straight shot there? Or even Butterfly World? She walked south at one point bc she ended up on Royal Palm. So that makes me wonder if she was headed south east instead of just east. Royal Palm turns into Copans, so was there an entrance to wherever she was going located on that road? Or maybe a different bus stop that might go farther away? Where's the bus stop for the bus that takes a person to Ft Lauderdale Airport?

    I'd like to add that I in no way shape or form am implying that her friends & family don't care or aren't involved in trying to search for her. In fact, both sides of the family have been at the forefront & vocal. What I noticed, though, is that there's hardly been mention this month. As far as Facebook goes, I definitely agree with you but that's how a lot of the family caught up with each other, kind of like just checking in etc. I'm certain they spoke on the phone as well. But I do still think its odd that I'm very used to seeing missing posters of loved ones that disappeared to be posted as a default picture on their relatives, friends, acquaintances & advocates pages - but I don't see that a lot in Claudia's case. Maybe 10 or 15 from her friends & family. That seems odd to me only bc it's different compared to what I normally see in these cases.

    However, I find it odd that her son has nothing on his page stating he misses his mom, a poster of her, anything to do with the search... But...he does however mention that he had to take a polygraph. Then he posts about moving to Coconut Grove a week after the dogs searched, but then he deleted that small 3 sentence conversation. It's probably all innocent, but it is odd.

    If there's a mod that may check in here, am I allowed to post his Facebook link since he took a poly? He's not a suspect as far as I know. His "likes" are death metal. He seems funny & intelligent. I haven't found anything negative on him. Everything I've come up with shows love between mother & son, nothing less. They seem soft spoken and wise, caring, give back to the community & be involved in good causes.
    Agree with you...It seems like we are on the same page then. Thanks for the info about the son...I have not looked at his FB page. That deleted conversation and the poly are very interesting. Is that normal procedure to give a poly to family members? Why would they even do that if he wasn't in the area at the time??

    That wasn't me. I don't know anything about the butterfly world. She did seem like an animal lover. I think she was involved in the rescue world somehow.

    Thanks a lot jersey for getting in on this one. Things lost steam and I think you are bringing some life back to this thread.

    I'm sorry, it was obody that mentioned the butterfly place.

    I'd like to find out the bus routes along that path Claudia walked and see if any were headed to a south east destination. Or maybe a previously rented rental car.

    Something just really seems off about the restaurant owner saying Claudia frequented his establishment but he hadn't seen her for the past couple months before she disappeared. I understand she'd be busy, etc... But it really does make me think something was going on for those couple of months to preoccupy her. She parked at that restaurant and didn't even go in. Then she walks away & disappears. The last place she was spotted was almost 3 miles away. If she'd lost her mind, why would she park at her favorite restaurant & then walk so far away without so much as popping in for a light meal & a sweet tea or something? She could have parked anywhere. Why did she choose to park at the restaurant? I keep thinking its part of the puzzle. Could she have parked there knowing it would buy her time to get away but also know that her husband would know to look for her there when all else failed? That way he could get the car & not incur towing? Is it a safe area? When Claudia went to that restaurant over the last 10 years, was she alone or with her husband? Or with another acquaintance?

    Maybe she disappeared on purpose bc she didn't want to move to Nashville. Maybe she "let on" that she was excited about the move bc she knew Frank was excited. Just by her FB alone it appears as though she enjoyed making others happy, not ever causing friction. She isn't one of those people that airs her dirty laundry on the Internet, she has too much class & compassion for that crap. So I'm wondering if maybe their bills were steep & it was getting too expensive to live there, so maybe that's why the need for a transfer. Nashville compared to Coral Springs are two different worlds. Plus it's so much farther away from her family & friends. I'm thinking she might not have been as happy about the move as she acted.

    Murphy's family is worried, but are still hopeful for her return home. "We're all extremely worried because this is not like my mother at all," said Diego Perez, Murphy's son. "We're just trying to keep the word out for anyone who may have seen her."

    FYI, I mentioned Butterfly World several days ago because of its location and because she has a firefly/butterfly tattoo. I saw it in a photo on the website for her.

    Again, her shoes indicate that she was planning to go for a long walk. The bag indicates pre-planning. Leaving her vehicle in a place where it would be recognized indicates pre-planning. Those things don't strike me as the actions of a disoriented, lost, confused woman.

    I think we can safely say that she had no intention of returning to her car and had a specific plan in mind. I think we also can say she was walking deliberately toward some destination to the east.

    That truly narrows the possibilities. She either committed suicide and her body is in some remote location that has not been searched or she met someone and either was killed or is with that person now.

    If she was meeting someone, they had to make some sort of plan. Her internet history, email correspondence, phone calls and text messages should provide some clues. She also may have used work computers or public computers. So they need to check those possibilities, too. If they can't find any communication at all, I'd lean toward suicide and set up some search parties.

    Hi HeinekenMan. Yes, I knew I read a post that mentioned Butterfly World! Thank you!

    I agree on almost all you've posted as we've all discussed much of the same things in your above post. I'm just not comfortable to say for sure that this is on purpose, although in my mind it truly appears that way. The creases in her forehead on the ATM video make her look distressed. She doesn't appear to be herself, at least according to info we've all read about her. She could have been going to Butterfly World but if she really were then why would she take that route instead of just going straight down the road she parked on? Kind of doesn't make sense. There's so many parks (and the like) that it makes me wonder if that were honestly the case, then why not just drive into the woods & hide her car? The shoes... looks like she wore them all the time for comfort, she's had them for over a year. I'm thinking she'd have worn the shoes anyway, most especially if she'd be doing some walking. I've gone through family & acquaintances of hers, some live near directions she was walking. Wherever she was headed, she was walking with a purpose. I wonder if she retained any of her old id's. She's has surnames Valderrama, Perez, Murphy.

    Bump.

    It just boggles my mind how someone (voluntarily or involuntarily) can just disappear with no trace. Someone must know something!

    Thanks, for that. Interesting.

    Well, I am not saying Maria Claudia DIDN"t voluntarily disappear, but why would she? Let me play devil's advocate for some fun here.

    If you are a broke college student or someone that has no (or little assets) when you disappear you essentially are in the same financial place in life. If you are someone more established: someone who has money in the bank, a nice car and house, etc., I find it hard to believe you would leave your comfortable life behind to live what would be a hardscrabble life.
    Of course, she could have had a little money squirreled away, but I would imagine anything more than a few thousand dollars and her husband would have noticed.
    So I think the only way that you would give up everything would be if you felt your life was in danger or you had some sort of life changing-join-a-cult type of breakthrough.
    JMO

    bump for Maria Claudia.
