    Have police ever identified the I.P. Address the emails were coming from? Or made access to the email to see who else was sending or receiving emails to or from that account?

    Not that I know of. I know they said they could see calls to and from me. I believe they said they couldn't tell about emails . They did check the email that came on Nov. 22, 2011 and it came from a Burger King in Clio, MI., which is half way between FG's former rental house and one of her close relative's place of employment. So, I'm not sure why the other emails are different. Maybe we need to question the police on this again. Thanks.

    BUENA VISTA TOWNSHIP, MI (WNEM) -
    The Buena Vista Township Police Department is investigating a case of missing persons that stretches back to 2011.

    Authorities said in November, the family of Eric Franks filed a missing report with the Archbold Police Department in Ohio, because Franks had not been seen or heard from for several months.

    Investigators learned that Franks went to Saginaw, MI, and met with an estranged girlfriend who is the mother of Franks' child. Franks checked into the Miller Motel in Bridgeport sometime in late 2010 and stayed for about five months.

    Police said Franks then checked out on March 21, 2011, and has not been seen or heard from since...

    I have a full copy of the original missing report and even then there are conflicting timelines . Other conflicting statements follow after the case left OH.

    No way I can only copy 10% of article due to TOS. Copied 1st part then did a screen shot.

    Witness says missing person was threatened Updated: Fri 5:23 PM, Mar 06, 2015
    BRIDGPORT TOWNSHIP (WJRT) - (03/06/15) - The disappearance of a Mid-Michigan man and his car has baffled police for years - but some new information could be a new clue in the case.

    Four years ago this month, Eric Franks vanished - and so did his car.

    ABC12 has learned that the Michigan State Police have recently spoken to a man who says he heard Franks being threatened.
