    Looks like she had just recently moved to the area from Florida, originally from Eau Claire.

    She was last seen around midnight and was reported missing at 2 am. That seems like a really short time. I wonder what led to her leaving, and potentially someone waiting, for her to return to the house.

    This is different than many other missing cases of young women this age in that she was at home (as far as we know) and THEN disappeared. If she did indeed leave home at midnight, I think social media/cell phone/text are going to hold clues.

    Can I post a link to her FB page? Also some interesting comments under some of the articles posted on SM, but who knows if it's legit or just speculation.

    You can post a Facebook link of hers if you're certain that it's her Facebook page.

    It looks like she actually spells her name as Abbey. It appears to be mostly private, but there are a ton of other pictures of her on there. What a beautiful girl, who looks like a lot of fun.

    From the article posted above by los2188:

    "After Abbey Russell wrapped up her serving shift at Pub 112 in downtown Stillwater about 5 p.m. Friday, she went out with friends and then headed home.

    Russell, 24, who lived north of downtown Stillwater, stepped outside her house about midnight and hasn't been seen or heard from since, said her father, Ken Russell, of Fall Creek, Wis."

    Her parents in Wisconsin are the ones who called to report her missing at 2am. How did they know? I'm assuming Abby must have lived with friends who contacted her parents?? I'd like to know who else was in the house who knew that she stepped outside at midnight and didn't return.

    Abby links an online journal/blog a ways down where she states she is in recovery for depression and an eating disorder Could very well speak to why the alarms were sounded straight away.

    If you look at google her home location of Minnesota 95 and Popular in Stillwater, MN, you'll see it's quiet, wooded area. Popular is a dead end without many houses. It's not the neighborhood where you would step out your door for a quick errand to the corner store.

    How close is it to the St Croix? Within walking distance?

    Very close. You'd have to cross Minnesota 95, which is a highway. And, I think it would be pitch black out there at midnight. But, it's very close.

    Sorry...I wrote "Popular" above, but the street is actually Poplar. My typo.

    Probably not relevant here, but there is a state prison in Stillwater and there are signs on all the highways warning motorists against picking up hitchhikers.
    always remembering

    Jacob Wetterling, missing from St. Joseph, Minnesota since October 22, 1989

    Jeanna North, missing from West Fargo, North Dakota since June 28, 1993
