I think there is a lot more going on here. Maybe a private investigator could do some checking?
    Did the family ever hire a PI? I agree this case needs one if there hasn't been one.

    I don't know if they did or not. I assumed they had - and I think I heard they had even talked with a clairvoyant, but don't know that for a fact.

    Acting on a tip from the public, Emergency Management and local law enforcement officials searched a wooded area south of Fairfield on Saturday for evidence related to the disappearance of Megan Nichols.
    Assistant Police Chief Silas Eckelberry said authorities received a tip that evidence regarding Megan’s disappearance could be located in a thickly wooded area off the Burnt Prairie blacktop south of Fairfield. For over two hours, EMA officials, along with Fairfield City Police, Wayne County Sheriff’s Deputies and auxiliary police combed the area, finding no evidence of the missing teen.
    I posted this over a year ago. I go over the information every now and then, and one of the things that bothers me is the part I bolded above. How do you thoroughly comb a wooded area in a little over 2 hours? I would think they would be looking at every inch of that ground - on top of and underneath the soil, in water, ditches... I don't think they know how to comb through an area. If her body was there, wouldn't it be mostly bones? And wouldn't those bones be scattered throughout the area, both by animals and the occasional high water that area receives? Maybe I'm wrong, but this doesn't seem to have been searched thoroughly.

    I really think there is more to Megan simply "missing"
    I hope she is safe.
    Now that she's old enough to technically be an adult, I hope she comes home. Or at least let's her mom know she's okay

    Mother Kathy Jo Hutchcraft has been keeping her now 16-year-old daughter next to her heart on a necklace. "Megan and I were incredibly close," said Hutchcraft. "I mean we did everything together."

    Hutchcraft had dropped Megan off at their house on July 3rd. She had been complained about an upset stomach. Mom returned late that night from running errands. "Sick feeling you know came over me and said shut the stove off and go check on your daughter," said Hutchcraft. "When I went upstairs, she was gone"...

    The Fairfield Police department gets several tips each week. Their search with the State Police, U.S. Marshals, and the FBI stretched to Oklahoma. Megan's biological father, John David Jackson Nichols, was arrested for being a non-compliant sex offender. However, the arrest did not lead to Megan.
    I don't usually notice this kind of thing, but this time it jumped out at me - Megan's mom refers to her in the past tense only a month after her disappearance.

    Just an observation.

    You're right.
    I've read her statement 8000 times, and never thought anything about it.

    In the above interview with Megan's mom, at the 2:12 mark, she says that the note Megan left read, "I am upset. I am scared, and I am a little paranoid".



    In this interview, at the 3:40 mark, she says that the note basically read, "Mom, I love you, but I'm never going to be happy here. Don't come looking for me, because why spend a lifetime looking for somebody who doesn't want to be found."



    BBM. Direct quotes from mom.

    According to the Prayer Circle page, Meg's dog is sick.
    Megan, you need to go home!

    Facebook is a buzz tonight with stories of Megan sightings in Midland, TX near Loop 250 and WalMart. Fingers crossed this is the real deal and she is found safe.

    No...The mom did not say that the note said those words...watch it again. The reporter said that a note was left and then they cut to a piece where the mom is describing how she herself feels...it is not a quote from the note..
    Watch further and they show the note as it was written with Megans signature.

    I see what you are saying. The reporter says, "And there was a note supposedly from Megan". Cut directly to the mom where she says, "I'm upset, I'm scared, and I am a little paranoid".

    The lead in (to me) implied that she was talking about the note, but I see how she could be talking about herself. However, why would she be paranoid? (Not necessarily a direct question to you, just pondering). I guess paranoia wouldn't be the first thing to set it (to me) if I thought my child had run away.

    I feel like the thing that makes the most sense is human trafficking.

    The phone being wiped clean is the biggest indicator in my opinion.

    how does it make sense to steal cash and leave the credit card...or steal cash and leave the cell phone...or steal cash and not steal something else of value that can be hocked for more cash.? did megan feel entitled to that amount of cash for some reason...was it her cash that was being kept in moms account for safety or did she in fact take moms' money? idk

    but it seems that if it were in fact megan's money then she would most likely own her own phone as well...again idk...but mom indicates that she had sometimes taken away the phone as punishment and then found megan still communicating with off-limits boyfriend via the ipad ....so did megan take the ipad when she left?

    it just doesn't seem like megan was much of a thief...i mean why not pack a bag, grab the phone to sell later, grab the card and get the cash on the way out of town and keep the card for back-up or hit the account for another 300 daily limit the next morning???
    instead she goes to the bank and withdraws cash, returns to the house, returns the card, writes a note and leaves it where SHE KNOWS mom will find it in the prayer room, and then at some point resets the factory settings on the phone and places the phone beneath the blankets on the bed...now i have to wonder...why would megan leave a note in an obvious place but conceal the phone? i suppose it could be something as simple as not wanting mom to see the phone before seeing the note...kind of a timing thing if she knows mom wont visit the prayer room till later..but the phone could have been left with the note right?...and didn't they say that a second note was found?...idk but i remember hearing that.
