    Yes - both are missing. She was supposed to leave very early, around 3am, on Dec 3. But no one has seen or her from her, and the Winnebego is missing.

    I hope they can get a helicopter in the air to search for her. If she wasn't feeling well, she could have had a medical event and ran off the road. That time of day, it could be very likely to have no witnesses to an accident like that.

    According to a post on her work fb page "Police told me last night her phone was pinged on Old Gunpowder Road in Laurel,MD" Who are the good phone pinger mappers on websleuths? What about google mappers? Can anyone look and see what their opinions are on where her phone (and hopefully HER) might be if that is where her phone is pinging?

    Thank you! I have tons of stuff going on this morning, but I knew that WSers could get working on it.

    ETA: I removed the pinging in Laurel from my message b/c Lauren and Burtonsville are very close - it could be the 'normal' tower for her phone to ping from. HOWEVER... the daughter is saying that it pinged from that tower last night - so she (or her phone) is still in the area. And she is supposed to be in Michigan.

    The phone ping is roughly 3 miles from the city limits of where she was picking up the dog. A is dog pickup. B is ping.

    Here is a map I threw together, maybe you guys can figure out her most likely route.

    Scroll the center wheel of your mouse to zoom it in and out. You will need to do a pretty good amount of zooming in order to see all the icons, since there are many miles involved between locations. The area of most interest would be around where her phone pinged. Note also that there is a State Park along route 200. Obviously they are usually set up to accept large RV's.

    I drew arrows the way I figured she was most likely to travel. That could mean nothing though, because I don't know where she may have had other stops scheduled.

    her daughter updated on the link up thread, about 10 min ago, that a person has gone to check out gunpowder rd for her

    Her phone hadn't moved much, not necessarily gone west, as the ping from the Laurel about 10 am local call indicates, when she should've been four or five hours away, in a different direction going to PA? If accident reports don't match, could she have been car jacked locally? maps below off skibaboo's link

    More info from FB page...she had driven off the road. Front end damage to RV...sounds like she may have been transported for medical treatment but not sure where. Hoping she is well with only minor injuries.

    There is a post on the fb page of a mans name and a phone number asking the daughter to contact him because he had info on her mom. That # when googled shows it belongs to the Comfort Inn in Beltsville, MD. I am praying she is found safe there and can get medical attention if needed! eta: hotel website shows it as being pet friendly... Praying hard!
