    GA - Jenna Van Gelderen, 25, Atlanta, 18 Aug 2017 #1

    http://www.decaturish.com/2017/08/de...id-hills-home/

    Jenna Van Gelderen last seen on Friday and her brother reported her missing on Aug. 20. She was house sitting for her parents who live near Emory University.

    Her parents were in Canada at the time. Her brother told police that when he came to check on his sister on Saturday she wasn’t there but the TV and lights were on. A painting had been removed from a frame hanging on the living room wall, the police report says.

    There was no sign of forced entry or a struggle. Her blue 2010 Mazda was also missing.

    Van Gelderen’s friend said he saw her on Friday and they had a brief conversation before she left, the friend told police. Her friend had not heard from her since. Another friend said she had a conversation with Van Gelderen on Saturday and later received a text saying she was lying down. Her friend said she hadn’t heard from Van Gelderen since and was trying to call her, but her phone kept going straight to voice mail.

    Here is a photo of Van Gelderen that was being distributed on the Nextdoor website. People with information about her whereabouts are urged to contact police.

    Flyer says no internet, phone or credit card usage since 18 August.

    ETA: Her parents have been posting about this on their own facebook page since this weekend (has been on my feed) but today is the first MSM article for which to start a thread. No "official" facebook page yet.

    I believe it's ok to list a linkedin and facebook profile for a missing person. She lists as a cashier for a Pet Store.

    Like I mentioned, I only glanced at her FB briefly & it was the 3rd post down & just so happened to be in August, as well. My mistake! Apologies for confusing anyone!!

    I think she made another/new FB account under another/nickname, because in this one the last post was almost a year ago (2016) or she decided to get rid of FB...

    Could it also be that she stopped posting publicly ? That was at least my thought?

    Yes. FB prompts me once or twice per year to review my privacy settings. This is what mine looked like when I changed to only friends could see. The old posts were still public but the new ones are not.

    Good point as to privacy settings and FB sending out those notices. Nothing nefarious as to that.

    That said, a PI or others could actually try to send the missing persons flyer to all of the friends, if it gets to the point the family wants to do such.

    Perhaps if those that are really close to her may the missing poster as their facebook "photo" iykwim.

    I've seen that on cases where folks close will actually put the missing poster for ALL their friends to see as their... whatever you call that... ?background? or such that shows for you posting..

    The missing pieces flyer would be a good one.

    WvanGelderen, about the FB account. Yes she could have used other privacy-settings (but some kind of information is always for every one to see (public), for example if you change your profile photo) or she could not have posted but used Messenger only....

    I'm seeing quite a bit of activity on this thread for guests. 27 guests at the moment.

    If you are friends/family member, please check out the threads at this link for how to get the case in the media, how to make missing persons flyers, how to obtain outreach... etc.

    I have not seen another MSM article other than the one posted above. I have not seen a LE/Missing Pieces Network etc. flyer for distribution, or family outreaching to the media yet either. I have indeed seen the father posting on facebook, which we are not allowed to link per TOS here.

    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/for...ons-Discussion

    ETA: 38 guests now on this thread just 3 minutes later. A dearth of information perhaps that only one article and WS showing when one googles her name?

    for any family members looking here. Getting it in MSM to force the efforts of police at her age may be key. Nefertiti Jaquez at WSB Nefertiti.Jaquez@wsbtv.com was very helpful on another case. Flood the local stations to get interest, but know that it may put a microscope on her life.

    If a family member or a person close to the case wants to post, you may want to get approved by the moderators, or unfortunately, your posts may be removed as it may be considered rumor by someone unverified. It's for protection of others and victims. Let me check to see how you can get verified if you are wanting to post and your posts will then not be removed.

    Not positive if this post is allowed, please delete if not & I apologize in advance if it's not. This post has a photo of Jenna's vehicle. Thought this may be helpful!

    I checked Jenna's facebook and we have 1 mutual friend.
    Also, her parent's home is within a few miles of mine.
    I hope she is found safe and soon.
    There is a post about her on nextdoor but there is no more info than what has been mentioned in the thread so far.

    Very surprised there is not more on MSM about this. Hope for good news.

    Perhaps I am understanding it incorrectly, or poor journalistic communication?

    I wish I knew what was missing.

    Was it a painting of the family?

    Was it a non-sentimental valuable painting?

    Specifically saying it was a painting, and it was removed from the frame...and not a photograph, leads me to ...

    Again I wonder if it is poor journalism communication and I am not reading it correctly.
