    Hmm OK odd, so the article states the family says she got into an accident where her car was abandoned Friday and the car was subsequently towed that day (not by police, they got it Monday). She then wasn't reported missing until Sunday?!

    How did they know she was in an accident? (maybe damage to car) Why the wait to report? (did police make them...stupid) Wondering what these friends know since they saw her last!! Who found the car? Ahh questions...

    Jamisha's facebook, not much to it:

    Without looking at a map, I'd say it's about 20-30 minutes from where Alexis went missing from. Just basing it on knowing where Alexis was at that gas station, and Lynchburg in general. Trying to figure where Concord is, and if it's where I think, might be closer to 30 minutes difference.

    This is scary!! A wreck and nowhere to be found?

    Is the date in the thread title correct? By looking at tweets (lots of today, yesterday) I get the impression it should be November 29?

    December 2, 2013 Dozens of officers scoured the area around Concord Turnpike on Monday afternoon looking for missing teenager Jamisha Monique Gilbert, who disappeared Friday morning under what investigators are calling “suspicious circumstances.”

    The search included canines, a state police helicopter and fire department boats, which looked for signs of the 18-year-old in the James River.

    In the river ... that does not sound very good.

    What is it about car accidents and people (mainly females if my memory serves me correctly) going missing right afterwards?? It's almost like an epidemic or something. I mean from the cases that I've read, it's not like it was a major accident. Now if someone gets in an accident and has something to hide, then I can see them wanting to get out of there ASAP before cops show up. Wow. This boggles my mind.

    Police had a brief news conference Monday afternoon, saying that they consider Jamisha Gilbert's disappearance as being under suspicious circumstances. Between 35 and 40 Lynchburg Police, State Police officers and firefighters have been searching for her.

    Gilbert's family says her car was involved in some type of accident on Concord Turnpike. Police didn't think much about it at first, but that changed when Gilbert's family reported her missing Sunday night.

    There is an active search and command post for Gilbert near where her car was found on Concord Turnpike. Investigators are using dogs and boats in the search. The James River is less than 100 feet away from Concord Turnpike. Concord Turnpike runs from downtown Lynchburg to Route 460.

    Can't find the link now!! Just was reading that she had been accepted to attend college starting in January. Per her fb, she was at least within the top 10% in her high school class and was aiming for higher before she graduated this past Spring.

    Yes, that gas station in Lovingston where Alexis was last seen is probably about 45 minutes away from where Jamisha's car was found. Hubby and I were just down there in Lynchburg on Saturday morning, probably only 10 minutes away from where her car was.
