For us at WS, this case is dead/lost/forgotten without new details/facts/info on the case. IMHO
We currently have five Verified Posters on the LL case, they are as follows:
DomCobb is a verified local/searcher/insider
Ender is a verified insider/local
trackinghounds is a verified insider
AQuietHeart is verified as an insider
Silentone is a verified insider
We seem to have lost a couple of Verified Posters or the first page has not been updated. ??
Trackinghounds has been active here - thank you - you seem genuinely concerned and somewhat haunted by this case - I hope you find the answers you need to reconcile what your hounds have relayed to you! Still curious why the other dogs were or handler was spooked by the river.
What update/info can the other verified insiders offer? Their silence here is deafening.
I continue to be concerned about the welfare of LL and her silence is confusing given all of the details we have been provided.
I wish that I had something to add, but there is nothing. There was a hopeful lead with a request for volunteers starting at 5 this morning, but it was confirmed that the person in question was not Linnea. Her parents are still earnestly searching. How can you give up as a parent? I don't even think that Craig has been home since the day she went missing. The volunteers have dwindled, but they still want to do what they can to follow every lead if any come in. Volunteers are passing out flyers at the State Fair in hopes that a visitor from somewhere might have seen her. Her parents are very discouraged and sad.
7/30!!!! Sheriff holds press conference on missing Lomax
... [sheriff's statement] “Somebody out there has knowledge of where she is. We just want to make sure she’s OK.” ...
... A cell phone left behind by [LL] is also being focused on. ...
... [CL, LL's dad] also said that the family has not been able to speak with the organizations that were trying to help their daughter with her mental breakdown associated with studying for her finals at UC Davis. ... [????? I assume that means Sutter in-patient and out-patient facilities. If so, why not? What reason has Sutter given? I'll assume patient confidentiality issues. Has Sutter been open and clear with LE re LL's care? What can/must Sutter reveal to LE?]
... While unsure of [LL]’s state of mind, [sheriff] said the department is “taking the case so seriously. Any contact … we are looking forward to. I hope she hears this plea.” ...

The July 30, 2012 date is interesting as it's tomorrows date. Is it a mistake or does that mean this story will appear in tomorrows print edition?
I know this is neither here nor there, but I am very angry about this case.
I don’t think we’ve been given an honest picture of the events leading up to LL’s “missing” status, her “mental illness”, the reason for her possibly having “voluntarily” left or any subsequent details.
Re event leading up to LL’s “missing” status: We haven’t heard one word from anyone close to LL during her school year at UCD. Not a roommate, suitemate, new friend from UCD, teacher, the UCD nurse, etc. Zip, zilch, nada!
Re “mental illness”: We haven’t been given anything to substantiate that LL was suffering from anything beyond possible anorexia, IMHO. Granted, anorexia is associated with concerning causes and the combination along with typical stressors during college finals week may be the reason for her in-patient stay, IMHO. Please correct me if I am wrong here – but, I’ve seen no substantiation of the following behaviors: “suicidal”, “unreasonable”, “paranoid”, “delusional”, etc, IMHO. There has been no corroboration of “mental illness” by LE at all, IMHO.
Re “voluntarily missing”: One thing that both Sac LE and EDC LE agree upon is that they both believe that LL is alive. Why is that? What info do they already have that leads them to state emphatically that they both think she is alive?
What medication was LL prescribed and, now that she is without, is threatening her life, as has been described?
Please LL team, help me and others, who are also concerned about LL’s welfare, to understand what’s going on in this very nonsensical case.
Nothing adds up!
Nothing makes sense!
Why doesn't it???
We have heard from her father.....
With any mental illness, you cannot predict what a person will do, and so most facilities treat every patient with the some degree of caution, even if they have never been considered at risk of harm to themselves or others.
BBM - It's been difficult for me to separate what folks are saying based on when she went into Sutter from when she entered outpatient and to ascertain any degree of what they are saying about delusions, paranoia, etc. I think there surely must have been some significant changes. That's all I'm going to say about this on here so I don't get into trouble. I know it's private, but it's too bad we don't know what her doctors or therapists would say about where she was at at the end of her inpatient stay.
I'm not sure they would serve lunch in an outpatient setting. Someone could probably just call and ask them.
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. ~ Aristotle
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.
Where does one go for six weeks to hide out? I sure wouldn't know how to do this. I can't really imagine how she could be okay.
Just my opinion, of course.
From the Sutter out-patient website that someone posted previously:
Q . What does “Partial Hospitalization Program” mean?
A . Sutter Center for Psychiatry’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a voluntary outpatient program designed to provide intensive group therapy throughout the day. PHP starts at 9:00am and ends at 3:15pm daily, Monday - Friday, with lunch, beverages, and healthy snacks provided. The primary treatment approach is group therapy and we engage in individual and family services throughout treatment as needed.
Above is somewhere on Sutter site, I only had the abbreviated link which was www.suttermedicalcenter.org/p...y/php-faqs.pdf - [broken link, WS keeps adding hyperlink to code]
Also, and for what it's worth:

As far as Linnea's friends and others, I can't imagine them talking publicly about what they saw and their concerns without asking the family's permission first (just out of respect).
I don't think there is any doubt that Linnea is in danger. The question is what happened to her after she walked outside the outpatient facility?
