    Mr. Cooke, My previous thoughts when we were on the other server that Litlstar is talking about was exploring the serial killer angle. Possibly because I kept reading about many different cases involving serial killers in TX so maybe that was what was influencing my thoughts. As you say, the likely suspects though are people who knew the victim in some capacity. So I'd like to ask you some questions, and I know you can not be specific.

    In a roundabout way, can you tell us whether there are actual suspects who knew Rachel personally? Do you just mean someone who may have known her only as an acquaintance? A stalker-type of person who may have become familiar with her through her job? Are there any good leads at this point? Or are things at a standstill? How many potential suspects were there at the beginning? And, have any of those people been successfully eliminated or narrowed down since that time?
    I have 5 suspects on my personal list. Law enforcement has some ideas on suspects but none have been identified to me. As far as I'm concerned they have not eliminated anyone. It could be someone I don't even know about like a construction worker who saw Rachel running. I'm not eliminating a serial killer, but it's unlikely.

    If I were running the case, I would research each possible suspect until I eliminated them and then move on to someone else. They haven't done that.

    I've had 3 different people working for me at certain points but we still don't have much.

    Mr. Cooke
    I am going to ask this and I am not sure if it will be upsetting to you, I am sure anything having to do with Rachel is upsetting. Have the police ever looked into the possibility of a sex ring or a place where they could be holding woman against their will for sexual purposes? I have heard people mentioning such things in other missing woman cases but I don't know if they really exist. I didn't want to ask this but seeing that people are mentioning such terrible things as serial killers I thought it would be ok.
    I visit your website several times a week to get updates on your case. You are an excellent father and should be very proud of the work you are doing to find Rachel!
    Again I hope I do not offend you!
    God Bless!

    There has never been any evidence that points to a sex ring. Of course we thought of that back when she was first taken.

    Post Gratitude and Remembrance - January 10, 2004

    January 10, 2004, will mark two years since Rachel Cooke disappeared while jogging near her parents' Georgetown, Texas, home. Friends, family, members of the media and law enforcement, and those who searched, provided donations, and supported Rachel's family in every way will gather at Faith Lutheran Church in Georgetown once again. We will honor Rachel, and the Cooke family will thank the thousands of people who have helped them through this awful experience.

    Mr. Cooke.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you on this sad anniversary. Rachel and her family have not been forgotten.

    We continue to pray that in some way she will be brought home to her family.

    I remember my Lutheran pastor once describing something as a "mystery known only to God."

    I continue to pray that someday, Rachel's mystery, which is now known only to God, will be made known to those who love her.

    I just wanted to congratulate you, Mr. Cooke, for earning the honor of Person of the Year through one of your local news stations. Even though the circumstances that have brought you the attention as person of the year are tragic, you really deserve the honor and are doing such wonderful things for all families of missing children.

    Thank you Up2theminute.

    I accepted the person of the year because I knew it would help keep Rachel in the news and help promoe the M.U.S.T. self-defense and awareness classes. Since we haven't found Rachel, I don't feel like I've done enough.

    That was a very good article, and I know you haven't found Rachel, Mr. Cooke, but I hope some day you can realize the inspiration you've been to many, many people.

    Today marks the 2 year 'anniversary' of Rachel's disappearance.
    There is a Gratitude and Remembrance ceremony today, in Rachel's hometown, for anyone in that area of TX who's able to go.

    Mr. Cooke, know that you and all of your family members are in the thoughts and prayers of many!

    I also just read a new article that talks about there being a new sheriff in town and how he plans on revisiting this case. I hope that is true.

    Gratitude and Remembrance

    Around 175 people attended all or part of the two year remembrance for Rachel. The bird release was beautiful and the candlelight service was excellent. I want to give a special thanks to Faith Lutheran Church for helping us once again.

    Members of the Williamson County Sheriff's Office, Texas EquuSearch, Gabriel's Gifts, Laura Recovery Center, Bikers Against Child Abuse, and Travis County Search and Rescue also joined us.

    I placed some news links and pictures on rachelcookesearch.org/2year.
