    FL - Ashlyn Bowman, 17, Edgewater, 22 June 2016

    Missing teen girl behaved erratically before disappearance, deputies say

    A search is underway for 17-year-old Volusia County girl whose disappearance has raised concerns among investigators.
    Ashlyn Bowman of Edgewater was last seen on June 22, according to Gary Davidson, a spokesman for the Volusia County Sheriff's Office.

    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."

    Okay, i'm going to walk on egg shells here. Through her FB, I have been able to connect Ashlynn to an acquaintance who happens to live on Edgewater Canal Road. That is the street address where Ashlyn was last seen. There are only about 25 homes with that street address.

    The acquaintance's home was raided by police about a year ago. Police found a meth lab and also an UNIDENTIFIED TEENAGE RUNAWAY, who was trying to hide under a blanket or a pile of clothes or something. Strange coincidence?

    By the way, the acquaintance was arrested as a result of the raid last summer. But the case is pending. Thus, he's been out of jail on bail for some time. On June 29 (just a few days ago), that same person was arrested on charges of resisting arrest without violence.

    Question Indecisive investigation

    There was to be an organized search for Ashlyn Bowman today. Law enforcement called us off. No reason was given. This girl as been missing for well over 3 weeks. There is little to no press. What gives? <mod snip> Was told about Wed that LE was Waiting on forensics and info was due in 48 hours. Ashlyns phone is turned off, not found. So, can anyone give me insight to why we are pretty much in the dark? And why they would call off a search whereas we know we cannot go into the woods anyway? Family is as confused as we are. Any ideas what should be done?

    I am friends with an editor for the News-Journal. If you can give me a contact, I can send him some info and ask him to have a reporter get in touch.

    I assume that you are a family member or friend. I am very sorry that you are going through what must be a living hell. Unless the search party was attempting to search private land without permission, I can't think of any reason that police would have the authority to stop a search. Sometimes, though, police prefer to do their own searches when they believe they may find evidence. Also, police do not like for potential suspects to search. So, if they are looking closely at someone in the search group, I can see them not wanting that search to take place.

    I live in the area. Its a nice area, mostly older folks who have lived here forever, or so it seems from those I have met. We started renting about two years ago, and the place on Edgewater Canal started going downhill. The person you referred to as being in jail is hopefully going to be there for a while. They let him out on bail for the meth lab incident, and he didn't show up for a court date so they rearrested him. He holed up in a house in Edgewater and wouldn't come out for over an hour, and that is why he, and another female, were charged with resisting arrest. <modsnip>

    I found it pretty ironic that right after the guy that lives there got re-arrested, they also raided the house on Edgewater Canal again. I am not sure what time they got there, but there were sheriff deputies and vehicles all over the property until almost midnight.

    That certainly sounds like evidence gathering based on a tip. So that raid was about a week ago?

    The raid was on July 5th. I agree that it was on a tip

    They are working on it. They may not be telling anyone that is not close what is happening, but that doesn't mean they are not doing anything. Pressure needs to be put on the people that know her to go to the sheriff. The person that you said was your admin (not sure what they are admin of) has some of the very same people on their own Facebook friends list that came and went from the house. Have you or anyone from your group turned the names and locations of the two girls who's names keep coming up in numerous conversations? Its probably important for the sheriff to have a conversation with them.

    Please stick to the facts and what has been reported in MSM when posting! Rumors and hearsay, however well intentioned, will not help find Ashlyn. Do not post names and/or arrest details of random people here. Until LE states they have named someone as a suspect or POI, no one is to be named or sleuthed. Thanks!

    He was arrested before the raid. Still does not explain why no media, no search. Is this normal?
