    Budnick's family members say the junior at Central Connecticut State University and native of Southington, Conn., left the United States on April 1 without telling her family members she was going to Japan. On April 4, her family looked at Budnick's e-mail account and discovered that she had booked the one-way trip to Hokkaido by way of Tokyo.

    SAPPORO (Kyodo) A 21-year-old female college student from the United States has been missing since arriving in Hokkaido on April 2, her mother and sister said Tuesday, asking Japanese people to come forward with any information they may have about her.

    Yes, more content, links, etc are helpful. My heart breaks for her family, not to know. The families of missing persons get stuck in a sort of limbo I refer to as the unknowing.

    I read that she was believed to have stayed in an inn in Japan and I think that possible siting took place on April 7, 2008 but the namus date is that of the day she was last known alive and on US soil so that is the date on the thread title.

    The international angle only makes it that much harder I would imagine for her family to get leads on her movements once she landed in Japan. I am still looking for more articles about the case. indricold, do you happen to know if the family has a facebook support page or a website on the case? Thanks for any further info on Skye's disappearance you can provide.

    there are some photos that seem to be of her on deviant art, a site she would likely frequent given her passion for Japanese anime and art. http://www.deviantart.com/tag/budnick

    lots of info regarding initial search efforts by family here

    The family revealed Monday that Skye left with only her laptop and about $800, according to information obtained from her bank accounts. Megan Budnick said if her sister is still alive, she is not sure what she is doing for money.Megan Budnick said her sister showed symptoms of clinical depression prior to leaving on the trip. There is a history of depression in the family, including one case that ended when an aunt committed suicide, she said.Skye Budnick refused to see a doctor regarding the condition and was afraid to get help. Aside from one counselor she claimed to be seeing at CCSU, Megan Budnick said Skye constantly told family members she needed to resolve her issues alone."She said it was something she needed to do on her own, that it was something she could do on her own if she got a chance," Budnick said. "We have gone through every scenario and this is what we hope she is trying to do."

    I went to my town police department to get some possible information on the case, all I was able to get was that Southington is not, and has not investigated the case since briefly after the disappearance had occurred.
    They said, considering that she was an adult at the time she was free to do as she wished, the tracked her transactions for a time and once it stopped they no longer kept tracked and consider the case closed. They're also not willing to speculate.
