More information from family on FB.

Cerilla was a sergeant in the police dept.
I have been emailing with Cerilla D's sister in law. She started the FB page for Cerilla.
She has given me more details about Cerilla and her disappearance.
I have her permission to list those details.
The sil says anything that can be done to find Cerilla Doyle is okayed.
Cerilla's husband died in early 2008. He had been ill for years with diabetes.
Cerilla was a sergeant in the police dept., number two in the department.
She was fired.
She was fired due to a boyfriend who had problems and caused problems, per sil.
The night before she left, she was arrested.
This due to the boy friend's inaccurate statements about Cerilla.
Cerilla's daughter got her out of jail.
Cerilla had a concealed license permit, but her gun was taken from her.
According to the sil, Cerilla was embarrased and ashamed.
The daughter works as a 911 dispatcher.
She left for work that evening and when she got off work the next morning,
Cerilla was gone.
Cerilla left her car, her clothing, her personals.
Police say that from Cerilla's internet usage, they felt she may
have taken a bus to Tulsa.
Police have noted that Cerilla has a police background and knows how
The local bus depot was checked and the person there thought
maybe Cerilla had been there. Trash bins showed something that
could have belonged to Cerilla.
Security cameras were either broken or not working that day.
There are one or two news articles from Tulsa.
But sil says that no police agency talked with Tulsa bus station personnel.
No one has heard from Cerilla at all.
What does the sil think happened?
She doesn't know. She just wants to find her.
But she now says that anything is possible.

Just a thought -- but thinking of some of the other women recently who have been killed by violent boyfriends -- she may have felt the only way to get away from this troublesome boyfriend was to disappear so he couldn't follow her?

It must be very difficult for the daughter to lose both parents in one year. I hope she is coping okay.

If Cerilla's car was not at the bus station, who drove her there? (I guarantee she didn't walk -- the station (really a FastTrak Citgo convenience store) is across HWY 540 in what most people around here would consider Rogers. For those of you not from around here, Bentonville has a population of around 30,000, so it's not some little one-street town where people walk to the bus stop.)
The one bus that leaves Bentonville to go to Tulsa leaves at 1:50 am, and it doesn't go directly to Tulsa. In fact, you'd have to take a Jefferson Line bus in the opposite direction, north/east, to Joplin and then change to a Greyhound bus to go back down southwest to Tulsa. I wonder if anyone has questioned the people at the Joplin bus depot.

Bentonville police want your help finding a former officer. Cerilla Doyle was a Pea Ridge Police Officer. She was last seen at her home on October 27th. She may be armed. According to a news release she is suffering from depression symptoms and may be suicidal. Police think she may have taken a bus to Tulsa and may be using a different name. If you have any information please contact Bentonville Police.

I found out a few days ago that my significant other's mom was friends with her. I'll post any thoughts from her, when we get to talk. The Facebook page on her disappearance is gone. Was she found? I'll do some more research.

It maybe sounds like she went to Tulsa to disappear.
And it's so frustrating that LE didn't contact the Tulsa bus station... LE in this area is questionable sometimes.
I'm really thinking Cerilla is still alive. I really hope so.
