    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Not telling us much.... was she walking to work at 8pm? Just going out for exercise? But taking purse and $$, traveling to family (at that hour?) - seems unsafe to go out alone as it's dark outside...

    Article makes it sound like she was walking to work.... but they said she didn't show for work on the 22nd; yet she was out at 8pm on the 21st... ?
    Wonder if she normally turned her phone off to save battery - if not, then something up there...

    From this link:

    It states that she may have taken tennis shoes as well, but that can't be confirmed.

    The news articles I have seen are slightly contradictory. If she had to be at work the next day, why would she be travelling to Cincinnati where her family lives? That is something I thought was odd. Maybe her family can shed more light on that.

    Maybe this is the only other place they can think of she would go.

    Don't know what to make of her leaving at night to visit family - seems dangerous, no?

    Yes, there are odd things that wish family might shed some light on.... did she normally leave at night to go visit family? Why take tennis shoes? What does her going at night have to do with her normally walking to work...

    I wonder how much money she took with her, and was it in cash? Did she have credit cards as well?
    IMOO.

    Maybe the reasoning for tennis shoes, if she did take them, would be to take a longer walk.
    Maybe she walked to a bus station, but I would think she would be on camera somewhere?
    I wonder if she walked in tennis shoes every work day and changed into other shoes at work?
    Maybe she was last seen in boots, at her home, but after that??
    I wish there would be more information coming out.
    IMOO.

    UPDATE from this link:

    paraphrasing....
    Fripp Island outside Beaufort, South Carolina, is where Beth's parents have a house and condo, so she might be headed there, per family...

    Good questions! You are right about CCTV around bus station. Wish we knew if when (if) she went to visit family if she would normally go at night. Seems strange, and since they saying she didn't show up for work the next day, sounds like she was expected at work... if going off to family, would think would have requested time off...

    “We have no answers. We continue to follow up on leads. We have interviewed family and friends,” said Capt. Dale Sievert, with the Davenport Police Department...

    Early reports suggested Hurst may have left to stay with family in South Carolina. Police say they don’t believe that is the case. “We have spoken to relatives throughout the country that we are aware of and we are being told she is not there,” he said...

    Police have checked records at local bus terminals and the airport. She has not used her credit card.
