FL - Robin Ford, 51, Key West, 30 August 2016AURORA WOMAN MISSING 3 WEEKS LAST SEEN IN KEY WEST
The last time Robin was seen was at around 3:00 am on 8/30 in Key West.
She had a court date later that day and didn't show up.
She did not show up for her flight leaving on 8/31.
Ford's family said her disappearance remains a mystery.

Interesting posts on her find page. Unfortunately, I don't think this is going to end well 😕I really, really hope I'm wrong. She is obviously very, very loved. Her family's posts just break my heart.

What a fascinating case. I never knew there were transient people who lived on islands in Key West and used dinghies to get around! Sadly it sounds like a high-risk lifestyle and it seems pretty apparent what has happened to Robin. I am still holding out some hope that she's just moved on to the next city, though.

I used to live just outside of Key West - there are many transients there, but most keep to themselves. There's an old saying, "You move to Key West because you're either running from the law, or running from love". When I lived there, many people were involved in dealing drugs, "Don't ever ask your neighbor what he does for a living - it's not your business; if he's kind and generous, just say thank you". But yeah, Stock Island has a large transient population; many in that area live on boats off-shore, others at campgrounds, and still others live under bridges. But, being a small town, if she's there, she'll be found. Of course the sea is very large, and if she's there, she may be difficult to locate unless the ocean itself decides to give her up.I'm so afraid that no one will believe me until after I have taken the seat that I fear has been saved for me in the darkness.

Yet that's not the biggest concern the 83-year-old retired Caterpillar man is facing these days.
More than anything, he wants to find out what happened to his daughter, Robin Ford, who has been missing since the end of August from Key West, Fla., where she had been living with a friend on a sailboat since January.

Aurora Cubs fan dies right after World Series game at Wrigley
Gathered around him at Seasons Hospice in Naperville watching the game on television were all 10 of his surviving children: A daughter Marcia Scarpetta died a few years ago; and his daughter Robin Ford has been missing since the end of August from Key West, Florida.Although he had no closure over daughter Robin's mysterious fate before his death, Herb Ford, like the rest of the large, close-knit family, had come to terms with the fact she was the victim of foul play and that her body was likely somewhere in the ocean.
What happened to Erica Jayne Franolich?
Missing from Middleburgh, NY, October 1986
