    Robert, I have read your posts on another forum for quite a while. I think of you and your family often. You have been such an advocate for other missing people. Thank you for doing such good work in the face of such a senseless and heart-breaking event.

    Mr. Cooke, welcome to Websleuths. I've read your posts on Court TV's message board, and I hope you will post updates and events you are involved with here also. Good to see you!

    Post thanks

    Thank you. I'm be glad to post here as long as people stay interested in all missing persons. There are many of the missing who never make the national news or even the local news.

    I've quit appending on some other forums because people were only intertested in 1 or 2 major missing person cases.

    Mr. Cooke,

    also, I welcome you to Websleuths..
    I have started looking at all the websites, and reading your journal, and I admire your dedication and perseverence.

    It is a problem that the media get focussed on one case and virtually ignore many others, very frustrating.

    Shakira Johnson in Cleveland for example, another girl was missing and an Amber alert was issued, and the girl located, yet why was none issued for Shakira?

    Keep up the good work. You are model to all of us.

    I'm sorry to say it's not just the media. Law enforcement does not react like they should. They go with statistics for missing teenagers and adults and assume teens are runaways and adults left on their own.

    LE needs to listen closely during the interviews with the missing person's friends and family.

    Very few abductions have a witness.

    Mr Cooke, That is so very sad yet true and is part of the reason why I'm drawn to these types of unsolved cases. This is the age group that almost essentially falls through the cracks, single young individuals just starting out into the real life adult world and the fact that this is one of the most vulnerable times in life in a lot of ways often gets completely overlooked. I've really been active in keeping these topics active and have along the way run into some others such as Litlstar and others who you see frequenting this section who are just as fascinated about these cases as I am. Between us and Doyle who does the great job of moderating this forum and letting us jabber away adding whatever we need to about the cases, I think it's possible you will get the most feedback here about your daughter's case.

    Mr Cooke,
    Welcome. My heart goes out to you and your family. I can't fathom what it must be like to not know what happened to your beautiful daughter. I am a long time follower of missing persons cases and remember when I first heard about Rachel's disappearance. She is in my prayers, you all are. God will take care of her.
    Misty

    As Up2theminute said on the Molly Bish thread, we were in the middle of discussion on Rachel's case before the other forum crashed. I'm trying to remember what had been discussed, so if anyone can help out, it's appreciated.
    I recall that I had asked Mr. Cooke if the possibility of a serial killer had been explored. He replied that the authorities had checked out all possible suspects in the area and there had not been any other people missing under similar circumstances in the area, either. I think, Up2, that you had questioned this? I know we hesitate to completely trust LE in many cases and tend to quickly conclude that it is a repeat offender in the area that is responsible.
    I can't remember where I read it, but I thought I recalled something about a male co-worker at the restaurant that was under suspicion or a patron of the restaurant?

    As with most missing person and murder cases, the perpetrator is usually someone who knows the victim or knows of them. This could be a family member, friend, coworker, or a person in the area such as a construction worker. Since we haven't had a lot of activity in the area since Rachel disappeared I think the above is even more true. A serial murderer or abductor tends to repeat the act within a few months.

    I can't really discuss leads or suspects on the Internet. You never know who's reading this.
