    What is she doing for money, food, etc.?
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Totally agreed. That's why I finally shared her story and joined (unofficially) the search. It doesn't sound like it was planned, definitely sounds like she has very few resources, and there are better ways to 'get away' and heal.

    Here's what makes me worry; she's 19. A legal adult. She has every right to disappear, to keep her private life private, to leave the hospital, to run away with the circus, whatever. All she would have to do to close out her missing persons case is to make contact with LE.

    I would think someone who has dont nothing illegal and WANTS to get away from certain people (family) or situations (outpatient treatment) would want to contact LE ASAP. Easier to hide when you don't have an entire city watching for you or searching. Since that seems like the rational thing to do it makes me fear she's incapable of that right now.

    Purely speculation but knowing the area and the timing, she wouldn't have much problem getting food - find a beach and some boaters to hang out with, or jump on board one of the many "boat islands" that form around this time of year. For the most part the boaters are friendly and welcoming in that area and it's almost a joke that there are no "strangers." Especially with her being so young and presumably not too scruffy yet (if she is in fact homeless right now), I think people would welcome her aboard to share food and probably even stay on their boats. For lodging, the highs have been in the upper 80s and lows in the upper 50s, so even if she's outside she's probably ok climate-wise.

    I know I might be overly optimistic here, but I'm very happy she's at least been seen, and I'm trying to have faith that she's ok for now, until she gets home.

    Very true, Kaliste - that worries me, too.

    I agree with you on the first part. I'm not sure about the second. I'm guessing she fear being put in a mental hospital as the only choice if she contacts family.

    Maybe she is not sure what will happen if she contact LE or is afraid she can't be anonymous, that they will pressure her? But, like handyman916 said "Then why are they posting a private number for people to call any sightings or tips and not directing them to call the police?" I'm not sure what LE's role really is in a situation like this and I'd hope they would make it clearer. Would they try to pick her up and hold her?

    I'm a bit confused or alarmed or something (IDK) that FB posts made by some woman who knows her and the family states she thinks Linnea is reading the facebook page and seem to imply people have talked with her since she's gone missing (the post talks ab out her oxycontin addicted son). I get the feeling they (family, friends, etc.) want complete control and that Linnea is expected to chose one of their options. Another person says they have a plan for a third part to take over.

    I guess it's unclear to me what kind of authority the family, a third party, or police have in this case where there is an adult who left an outpatient session and doesn't want to be found. I'm not sure that in itself is enough to force her into a mental health care facility unless they will claim she is gravely disabled.

    See, I look at this in a totally different way than everyone else here, apparently. I see this from the parent's perspective. Your young adult child is having problems...even her friends know something isn't right. As a loving parent, you try to intervene and get help for her. Then she runs away, without any medication or any money. Your concern grows, obviously.

    We often criticize parents here who do not take the proper precautions to help the people in their lives. We get angry and say, "Well how could that mother let that 19 year old girl walk off without a ride?" Or, "How come they didn't report that they haven't spoken with her in 3 days?! That's crazy!"

    Here we have parents that I think are acting in their young adult daughter's best interest. If she wanted to get away, then she needed to reveal that to her psychiatrist and the authorities....mostly for the sake of her loving parents. These people have invested years in her life....they deserve to at least know she is ok.
    But I don't think she's ok. I think she is sick. And she really needs help even if she doesn't believe it yet.

    If she is voluntarily missing, LE may not be as active as the family would like, hence asking people to contact them. LE does not usually spend a lot of time on adults who go missing on purpose.


    And she may not be in a state of mind to contact LE; it may not even occur to her. She may believe that LE will inform her parents of her whereabouts.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    What??? Yikes, wow, I hadn't seen those and imagine they've been removed by now. I know it's all speculation but I can see why it concerned you - me too!

    I hope she is found, and I hope she's able to find a place where SHE feels safe, whether or not that's with her family. For her family's sake, I hope they at least know she's been located and is safe, regardless of what she chooses.

    The post is still there. For others, you do have to click on 'read more'.

    Maybe if she was in a safe place, had her minimum needs met, and had someone on her side (like a different therapy person/doctor/center), she would feel she could call and let them know?

    Another poster on the FB that seemingly knows her states Linnea is angry (or it's the same poster, I forget).

    Is there a link for the public FB page? Not finding one.
    Just my opinion, of course.

It should not be that way they need to call police otherwise they are violating her HIPA rights by asking people to call a private number and not police. That post should be removed and people just told to call police not the family hotline. We are talking about a voluntarily missing adult.
    I think the family is afraid if they release the exact location of a sighting, too many people not versed in the search protocol will suddenly converge on the area and possibly scare Linnea away.

    The police may be only minimally involved now, as there is no reason to suspect foul play - yet. Her family and friends want desperately to find her before anything happens to her. The streets - or the riverbanks - are not a good place for an emotionally fragile young woman.

    YES!!!

    If my DD just walked away from her life..which would be totally out of character..Id do whatever it took to find her,and she is 23 yrs old. If when I found her,she wanted to remain "gone",THEN I would have to allow her that choice.
    IMO

    ick..just typing that makes my heart ache.

    Where are you Linnea? So many people are worried about you Honey.
    If I really thought I could...
    Id give up your ghost for good.
    But Im not so sure it isnt you..
    That keeps my ghost from leaving too.
