    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."

    Wondering if she has a cell phone that was attempted to be tracked?

    Hmmmm looks like she was arrested the day before she went missing and at least one other time before that. Age, city, photo seem to match up. Further sleuthing shows she left scene of a crash, no driver's license. Previous arrest was posession of cocaine.

    Wonder if drugs have to do with disappearance...So sad how many cases end up that way

    Her arrest history includes: heroin, paraphernalia, attempted robbery or break in and another cocaine possession.

    I can't quite tell if she had two children or one.

    The last place she was reportedly seen has a Circle K, Sunoco, Walgreens, Bank & 7/11 at that very busy intersection.

    A few hours ago, deputies were searching not far from where she was last seen by a friend who picked her up at a hotel she was staying at, and dropped her off at a manufactured home on the 2800 block of Cleburne Rd, which does have something of a woody/swampy area on it, according to Google Earth.

    The report says she was wearing black pants white shoes and a tank top. (No one knows what color tank top.)

    There's a screen shot of the street they searched earlier today. It was the 2800 block of Cleburne.

    Thanks for the link.

    It's unclear why deputies decided this morning to search the wooded area off the dead-end residential street south of Buck Road, less than a mile east of Dean Road.

    A group of about 25 members of the Sheriff's Office Emergency Response Team set out at 8:30 a.m. looking for evidence, spokeswoman Jane Watrel said.

    Here's a map of the area.

    Wonder if the owner of the manufactured home has taken a poly.

    Ugh she has a child/children?

    Yes, her one child K is with her parents and can be seen on the news at the above link.

    I haven't heard anymore about the mobile home, but the friend who dropped her off there is JD.

    Matt Grant from WESH reported a few slight updates to Tia's case:

    "There were some other people we can't go into that right now," said sheriff spox when asked about who saw Tia Bonta last."
    "Investigators say they have interviewed "JD" (unsure relationship to Tia) along with 10 of her friends. Working on leads they can't discuss."
    "Sheriff's report says "JD" last to drop Tia off near area where investigators searched. Today they say he was not the last one to see her."
    "Tia's father said she missed a court date today..."

    He tweeted more but it was stuff we already discussed on this thread.

    His tweets are concisely here about 2/3 of the way down: http://www.scoopnest.com/user/MattGr...46325746020353

    His tweets are also on his WESH Channel 2 news page: http://www.wesh.com/tv/news-team/Matt-Grant/21115450

    Forty-four-year-old James Dellofield, whose last name is sometimes spelled Dellafield, was seen with Tia Bonta on July 31 at the Days Inn at 11639 E. Colonial Dr., near Alafaya Trail.

    Bonta's father reported her missing Aug. 5. He said a witness told him Bonta got into a car with a man named JD at the Days Inn, and gave deputies JD's phone number, records show.

    Also:

    A deputy called JD, who said that he did pick Bonta up at the hotel and drive her to a house on Cleburne Road. He said he did not know the home's exact address, records show.

    Deputies did not say whether JD is Dellofield.
