Bumping Thread for Brianna's friends and family who love her and continue to search
"Would some power the Giftee gie us To see ourselves as others see us" R.Burns
I was on Bri's site last night just praying for a positive update. I was checking out the pics of the car backed into the barn and am wondering what the WSers take may be on this. Any suggestions, insight, or guesses???
Brianna's family has doubled the reward for information leading to her whereabouts...
A segment about Brianna is scheduled to air on the Nancy Grace Show on CNN on Monday, July 4th at 8pm EST. (subject to schedule change)
Thank you for that link with the possible break in the case... I've been following this ever since seeing her parents on Nancy Grace a few weeks ago. It was so heartbreaking to see them.
Hi SS! I've been following this case from the beginning and hope the Maitlands have answers very soon. I can't imagine being in their situation.Originally Posted by SimonSays
That's great! Hopefully they find something! I've recently been wondering if ES would help search for Maura Murray...I wonder if they'd consider it now since they would be in the area..hmmmOriginally Posted by inquiringmindz
Bumping for Bri
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRIANNA
Another birthday Brianna's family has to endure the pain of not knowing where she is or what happened to her. No families should experience that pain.
Bump for Bri.
I swear I thought that they had taken someone into custody or something regarding Briana? I think it was a while ago, but I thought they had found someone who knew something but would not get in trouble if he said what he knew...Am I going nuts, or did this happen or not? And if so, does anyone know what came of that?
I know that I read a news article that stated that someone in custody with a connection to drugs made a "deal" regarding his charges if he revealed information regarding Brianna.
Don't which forum on which I read about it, but also recall that someone replied with a comment about the person walking out of the courthouse while no one knew where Brianna was.
Bring Maura Home!

I feel like LE was a little too "hush hush" (at least about Maura.) If I find any info about Bri I'll post a link.
Brianna and Maura Murray are featured in the Websleuths Spotlight. There are a lot of articles for background on Brianna's case...I almost missed it because I usually click on Missing...you need to click on Forums...

I don't recall anyone stating that a white pick up was seen near the Black Lantern that night. There was a report that a white pick up was setting backed in near the Longley Bridge on Longley Bridge Road for quite a while the night Bri went missing. Longley Bridge Road is very close to the abandoned house where Brianna's car was found. I am not sure, as I am not a local, but does anyone know if you can actually view the abandoned house from where the truck was parked? We are still unsure if the truck is involved or not. I feel most of the people who have reviewed this case feel that the truck is NOT involved.
Oops sorry I just realized I'm posting in the Missing person info & support! I'll try to find another thread to discuss this in! I'm really sorry!
This was posted on Bri's site Oct. 18 by Catmaster...I'm so happy for the Maitland's that Brianna's case will get this type of exposure.

By now, Brianna's image has been seen by millions of people around the world!!!! And it will be seen by millions more in the next few days, especially if we help it along!!! ... please pass the link around as best you can...
I've attached an image I was able to capture - bottom left of this post... I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw her... just a second, but enough to recgonise her... I had to go back and snap this snapshot using special software... but there she is - at the bottom of this post and in the advertisement for the Miniseries.... it's what's called subliminal projection, or advertising... the best kind of advertisizing there is!!!
Thank you Lifetime, TV for Women and MSNBC

Police Teams Search For Missing Teen
October 28, 2005
A platoon of police, volunteers, and specially-trained dogs hit the woods Friday in Franklin County looking for any sign of a teenage girl who went missing a year-and-half ago.
It is the latest chapter in the baffling disappearance of Brianna Maitland.
The police say the stepped search search for Brianna Maitland had been planned for some time and they made it clear that they do not expect to find her alive.
"We do not know what we're gonna find for remains if there is anything out there," said Vermont State Police Lt. Brian Miller speaking at an afternoon press conference to discuss the two-day search effort.
Miller heads up the State Police investigation to find Brianna Maitland that was renewed Friday in two areas of Berkshire and Montgomery. Forty-five police officers from three states -- teamed with cadaver sniffing dogs -- fanned out in the hills looking for any signs of the missing teenager.
Police have conducted an exhaustive investigation for the 17-year-old since she disappeared without a trace in March 2004 after she left her restaurant job in Montgomery. Police have followed hundreds of leads, conducted hundreds of interviews, including some indicating she may have been involved with drugs and drug dealers. But there have been no arrests, and police say they have no specific suspects; just a lot of non-specific information that triggered this search.
"There's just multiple pieces of information, many anonymous tips, thru interviews just probable locations where that we could look and maybe bring some closure to this case," said Lt.Miller.
If the police found anything new Friday that would help locate Brianna Maitland, they are keeping it to themselves.
Police say the search effort will end Saturday at dusk unless they find something that would justify staying on.
Thanks for posting the story and link! I'm always looking for new information about Brianna. Even though I don't know her, I've been interested in her case. I hope they find Brianna or some answers soon. I can't imagine being in their position
