Another snow storm in the area tonight.
I'm from Davenport as well. I don't know Carrie, but we have several mutual friends. Glad to see this case on here, though I haven't heard much in the past few weeks. Very unsettling!
Just a little bump. Sad to see this case slow down.
Such a sad case. All eyes should still be on T.M. in my opinion.
The way car was missing and how he had it, and now she is missing and he just drives up to the police station with it....why there is so much mystery and drama, I just do not know why Nancy Grace won't even bite at this! There had to be more history than we know if TM had anything to do with it. If not, then why would he? So frustrating!
I think about Carrie everyday and check here, kinda hoping and maybe not hoping she would be under LOCATED. I do not know why this one tugs at my heart so much. I hope they find her soon.
Snow, snow...go away!
Hopefully TM will be doing some jail time here real soon. He has to appear in court (Rock Island) 3/13 for driving on suspended license. He is a habitual offender in both states Illinois and Iowa. I wonder why Davenport police didn't arrest him when he brought her car.
Just a tad little bump for Carrie.
I wonder how TM fared today in court. I hope they were able to hold him.
So far all that has been updated from court today is a bond date of 4/14. He has already posted bond so I don't understand the "bond date". Will they revoke bond and hold him?
If anyone can think of any place to search please post. I live a stones throw away from TM and I work near where the phone pinged. I have checked the parks, river banks, spillway, and drainage tubes that are in the vicinity. I'm thinking he used the blanket to drag her off the beaten path but where?
Billboards Increase Search Efforts For Carrie Olson

"We haven't forgotten about it...not by a long shot. It's an active investigation. People are working on it every day. We're just hoping for that shred of information that helps us solve it," Davenport Police Chief Frank Donchez said.
The family has even turned to social media by creating a Facebook account that has garnered more than 20,000 likes and serving as a means of communication between both the family and community. But now, they've come up with a new way to get word out--billboards.
The court records were finely updated today! Mr. Mcvay was a no show for his court appearance on the 13th! There is a warrant issued.
I believe he threw the phone in the Rock river and missed and it landed on the tiny island or on the bank. There is a bridge there but I can't figure out how to get down there. " I need a boat"
I do think she is still local just because I don't think he would want to be bothered on his date to Las Vegas.
Her Facebook page is referring that he had someone help him which makes sense to me from what I have gathered on this guy.
I have a plausible theory about the POI/and the weekend that the crime occurred:
Based on what I've heard thus far, we all have a good idea who did it, we just need to find her. This could have been a crime of passion or may possibly be a premeditated crime, but likely not planned that far in advance. That's why the POI was dumb enough to leave so much evidence lying around and why it's so obvious who did it. This crime will get solved, but a victim has to be found. If planned, probably planned and/or carried out within 12 hours before the crime occurred. Therefore not very well planned, and the POI is a scumbag idiot.
I think this POI is a loser, was bored looking for some action that night, and probably had no car, money, or resources and no one else to hook up with. He reached out to her to go drinking or partying on that Saturday night, probably led her to believe he was interested in getting back with her. She had nothing to do either that night and took him up on his invitation to get together. She was in RI to get gas and go to his home to pick him up to go somewhere with him, a party perhaps, out to dinner or a movie, a bar? By 3;30 am they were probably just getting back and stopped at the gas station again before returning him to his home. Probably they weren't sober. They got into a fight. He harmed her and spent the hours before 7am when he was spotted refilling the gas tank dumping her body somewhere. He filled the tank up to drive to Minnesota. He probably panicked and realized he needed to run away or get out of town. Knew someone in Minnesota he could run to, drove to Minnesota in Carrie's car. Probably didn't tell that woman in Minnesota why he was really there. Suggested and talked her into the Vegas trip. This POI is a gigolo that sponges off of vulnerable women. I know the type.
In the QC typically people dump bodies and/or evidence in the rivers. But at this time of the year the rivers were frozen solid. The next consideration would be to bury the body in a heavily wooded area or ravine. There are tons of ravines between RI and Milan. Between RI where she was last seen and Camden Park where her cell phone last pinged that is where she can be found. I can think of a few places like that. There is Black Hawk State park, Indian Bluff golf course, and Camden Park. All three of these places have had bodies dumped in them in the past. I believe this scumbag would probably do what a typical scumbag would do if they wanted to dump a body.
I think Camden Park/Milan area should be searched again on this reasoning: The last ping on her cell phone came from there, her cell phone is missing. I have a theory that her cell phone is wherever she is, that she still had it on her and possibly her wallet too, and was buried with them. People have asked why would she leave her coat and purse in the car. Being a lady myself, I would do that if I were going directly inside somewhere warm and didn't want to have to keep an eye on my coat and purse or keep it hanging from my arm. A bar perhaps? Movie theater? A restaurant? A store? She probably didn't have her coat on or carry her purse all that evening because she was inside somewhere warm and she still needed money and ID inside of wherever she went into. The fact that she would take her cell phone in with her is obvious, and the fact that her wallet is missing is a good clue that she needed it for ID and to purchase things (drinks?) wherever she went inside to, most likely a bar.
Those close to her should consider what bars they might hang out at. Did any one see them at any bars that night? If not, they must have gone somewhere where no one knew them. What bars do they never go to?
Another question to consider: Did the POI know anyone in Milan near the Camden Park area? Could she be buried in a back yard? Could someone in Milan have helped him? I doubt this, but it's possible.

If you click on this link you can find the court record for his case.
People need to understand how police investigations work, or don't work.
After initial back ground checks of a POI, they wait for information about the case to come to them. They do not actively pursue information. So they are waiting for people like us to come forward with tips or information, even finding the victim or body, then they follow up on it. It all works very passively. That's why it can take forever or cases go unsolved. For the family and loved ones of a victim the whole process can be very frustrating.
It's up to us to keep our eyes and ears open and not give up looking for her.
I am from her area. Live just a few blocks from where she was last seen. Am very familiar with the area and have lived here for over 30 years. I have seen many other missing persons cases and murder cases around here. So I am familiar with how they typically are carried out. I never took an active interest in any cases before, except for one case years ago I did report something my brother had heard in the area of his home the night of his disappearance to the police. I guess my interest in this case is due to the fact that she is close in age of my own son and it just really bothers me. What if she were my child?
This is the man that went missing in 1990. I have relatives who lived in the same mobile home park where he lived. My brother heard a gun go off that night that around 2 in the morning. This case still hasn't been solved. His ID and other personal items were found at the Indian Bluff golf course. His car was found at the airport near by.
