    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."

    It looks like she is still missing. The story came up as trending on Facebook. Her daughter has commented on this post from Local 8 news. She says that her mother was driving a van and the van has been found.

    Apparently there is another woman missing from the same general area.

    From what I also gather by looking at her Facebook page, it seems as if her husband/significant other passed away a few years ago. I get the impression that she is still grieving, bless her heart.

    I think you are right about her loosing her husband a few years ago. However, it seems to me that she has managed to move on with life. There is a photo from September with a man and people are saying how happy they are for her. Same with a photo posted in August.

    Family of missing Cocke County woman pleads for safe return
    January 15, 2016

    Snipped...
    ...Hale said Costner texted someone at her son’s school last Thursday saying she was running late due to a flat tire.

    “That’s the last time anyone seen or heard from her,” Hale said.

    Hale said Costner’s van was found in the parking lot of Union Baptist Church with a slashed tire with no trace of her.

    Family of missing Cocke Co. woman grows desperate for answers
    A missing Cocke Co. woman has not been heard from for more than a week, and now her family is growing more desperate for answers.

    Lora Costner was last seen on January 7 around 4 p.m. She was on her way to pick up her son from school. A text message was sent from her phone to the school saying, "I got a flat tire. I'm going to be a few minutes late".

    "We're not sure if she's the one who sent that text message," said Lora's sister-in-law Deanna Hale.

    "I don't think she is," said Lora's brother Jeff Hale.
    Costner never arrived at the school. Her van was found in the Union Baptist Church parking lot, with a slashed tire.

    "She would not have left the van there with a flat tire- she would've called someone for help. That's another red flag," said Deanna.

    But the repercussions can last a long, long time. Plus, they are being telephonically harassed.

    Her van being found in Cosby spooks me. It is one of the few drives in my area that make me feel like I could be the victim of a crime. Cocke County is the county next to us and I've seen nothing in the paper. I am very worried for her.

    I wonder how her husband passed? Was it natural causes or maybe an accident? I have looked but only found obituary. I only mention this because it could very well be repercussions from the identity theft situation they dealt with, same could be happening now with Lora.

    TN - Lora Elizabeth Hale Costner, 42, Cocke County, 7 January 2016

    She also seems recently single as of NY based on a meme she posted.
    Along the lines of who else is ringing in 2016 single?
    It appears she was dating someone late summer they broke up and she started dating someone new in Sept. But then possibly single in Jan. ( could just be a random meme she posted)
    I hope these men hVe been spoken to. Not saying they are to be involved. Just saying. She appears to be a very loving mother and devoted to her son. I'm assuming her daughter is off at school? This seems very suspicious to me.

    I lost my partner suddenly when he was 25 and our son was 5. I relate so much to Lora. Her posts break my heart and bring me back to when I was hurting so badly for our loss.
    With my own experience I dotted on my son even more. I see that with Lora on her posts and her memes. I feel her sadness. I really truly feel someone has hurt her. She had a slashed tire. Who did that? And how would that person know when she would actually have car trouble? Would she call this person for help? This is all my opinion. I pray she is found.
