    I live in Virginia Beach and coming from the Navy myself, I have to add it's not unusual for anyone to arrive on base at least 90 minutes prior to the start of work. A good portion of our huge population works on many of the military installation in the surrounding area so your best bet to beat the traffic and get through all the security is to leave that early in the mornings.

    The only toll in the area is for the Midtown Tunnels and Downtown Tunnels. Otherwise, there are HOV lanes w/ restricted use and times, but no tolls in the immediate Norfolk/VA Beach area, particularly in on I-64 or I-564 or I-264W (east of I-64 interchange)

    But there are tons and tons of cameras all over the roads in this area. I would think LE is scouring all the possible travel paths from the base to Azalea/Tallyho (phone spot) and to 9500 of Lakeside in the oceanview area (car location). However, I images w/ so many possible routes, road cams and possible security cameras that could be a daunting task. Hopefully someone's coming through it all to be sure there isn't a stone unturned.

    It's a pity it took that long.

    Hope this young lady comes home safe but I have to say, I don't have a good feeling.

    Agreed. I cant help but wonder if they wanted someone to steal the car. It just sat there that long and no one did anything.

    Maybe someone in the neighborhood reported to LE seeing the car parked there since the day she went missing. The person may have become suspicious only after seeing the car sitting there several days with the windows down, and then may have recognized the car on the news or a MP poster and reported it to LE. JMO

    Odd that the windows were down. Was someone airing out the car? Wonder if any DNA evidence has been found in the car.

    Billie dreams of opening her own bakery or becoming an executive chef and was excited to study her passion in college, the family said. When Billie discussed getting a job, her father said he thought she had enough on her plate with school starting. But when she said she wanted to work at the sub shop on base, he encouraged her to pursue it.

    Sounds like she was content with her life, doing the things she was passionate about and working toward fulfilling her dreams. Doesn't sound like someone who would just walk away from family and her dreams. MOO

    So many scenarios going thru my head.

    Finding her car really changes my perspective on things. If she needed a break to get away I don’t think she would ditch her car.

    Back in May there was another black female (and her infant daughter) reported missing in my city not far away from Norfolk. Do you remember Kier Johnson and her baby? She hasn’t been found nor her daughter. Kiers car was found miles away abandoned by some residences. :/

    Here is another map, showing the location where AB's car was abandoned.

    https://goo.gl/maps/TaCNwJhabTN2

    It looks like the car was driven along Rt 60 to where it was abandoned in Ocean View. Not good that whoever was in the car, possibly with AB, traveled so close to the water. Would someone be able to catch a ferry in Ocean View to get to, say, Buckroe Beach and Park where a vehicle may be parked.

    AB's cell phone being found in Norfolk suggests 2 possbilities:
    1.) Someone, with AB in the car, drove from the base to Norfolk and then backtracked/took I-64 to Ocean View.

    2.) Two people are involved in the abduction of AB, one driving AB's car and the other driving a 2nd car. So, the one drives to Norfolk while the other drives to Ocean View.

    Either way, he/she/they wanted to spread the evidence. Fortunately for LE, that's more opportunity to catch something/someone on camera. Hoping they did and Ashanti will be found soon.

    ETA: meant to ask, what besides her cell phone was found in Norfolk?

    I've been quietly following this case.
    Is it possible that she was confronted by someone or even met someone at her work? She left willingly with them and was kidnapped after? Or maybe she "ran" away or was persuaded to go away with a love interest? Maybe someone from where she used to live?
    I hope she's found safe.
    I'm on the fence. I don't know what to think about this one.

    Okay, now I get it. This was a construction dumpster, and the cell phone was found in the dumpster by construction workers because it was ringing. Makes sense.

    Odd that her car was abandoned in one direction (from the base ) and her phone was ditched in the opposite direction. Almost makes me think whoever ditched her car in Ocean View had to travel back in the direction of her apartment, and ditched her phone along the way.

    Do we know if her keys were ever located ? Anything missing from her apartment ?

    I'm thinking a random abduction from a govt. Non military worker that either someone that knew she was opening or just an crime of opportunity.

    hearts go out to everyone who knows and loves Ashanti. The not knowing, and not knowing what you don't know, can be so soul crushing. I hope Ashanti is safe somewhere and if not, I hope there is a resolution soon.
