    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."

    I was just getting ready to post this, but I thought I would check today's posts one more time. I've searched through Google and the NBC12 report is all I've found. Nothing on the newspaper or other news sources. A lot on Facebook, but mostly a repeat or a share of the information as above.

    This is just to the north of me and I'm not hearing or seeing anything on the news here.

    The WTVR channel 6 news article with little more info but it hasn't been updated since yesterday. She dropped her son off in Varina and they say she was last seen near the Richmond airport in Sandston. I always thought the Varina community was near Route 5 and I-295. The airport would then be 4-5 miles north. That leads me to believe someone saw her after her son. Not much in the way of details though.

    Bill Fitzgerald (WTVR channel 6) stated last night that LE had no updates as of 11 PM. Today he stated that LE is not conducting searches, but they have no objection if others organize a search. He said LE is asking for tips/info as they have exhausted all that they have now.

    Bill Fitzgerald of WTVR is now saying on his WTVR FB page that LE is at a boat ramp at Deep Bottom in Henrico and a car is apparently in the water.

    I was concerned with all the road flooding that Bonnie might have gone off the road into deep water. But not this. I was hoping for a better outcome.

    Police said they do not suspect foul play. In fact, police said they have suspected Bates’ body was at the location since Christmas Eve when she called 911 saying she was going to drive into the water.

    However, police said they could not perform a search that night because of a storm. However, they have been searching for her since.
