Dawna is described as 5'6" with brown hair with blonde highlights and brown eyes.

Today's THV spoke with a family member who tells us police are asking them not to speak about the case at this point.

HSVP says they will be releasing more Wednesday and we will keep you updated as information becomes available.

""She doesn't leave without giving hugs. She loves people," Hathaway said.
But Natzke did that night, with her boyfriend. We spoke with him, but he declined to go on camera, only saying Natzke dropped him off at home, saying she planned to return to the party. But she never arrived.

There are questions KARK continues to have for Village police as well. For two straight days, the point of contact for media at the department has failed to return our calls.

However, according to Lt. James Martin, the Garland County Sheriff's Office has offered to help in any search efforts, but the police department has not requested help from their
deputies."


(There is a video on the page with the article. One pic of Dawna with her arm around a a man if featured at the beginning...I wonder if hr is the boyfriend and if he has connections to the local PD?)

HOT SPRINGS VILLAGE, AR – "Somebody please call," urged Hot Springs Village Police Lt. Ricky Middleton. "We need some help."

~snip~

Hathaway couldn’t get in touch with Natzke, which is very odd. Next thing she heard, police found Natzke's teal green 1997 Ford Escort Wagon off of Highway 298 in the Ouachita National Forest. They found it burnt.

"Oh my God," said Hathaway after hearing the news. "I just couldn't believe it."

Neither could friend Henry Rogers. Now, just like police, he's looking for Natzke.

"I drove through this area," said Rogers while retracing his steps on Highway 298. "There's a hunting lease over here. I drove through it the other morning looking around. That was before I knew they found the car. I was looking for her car."

Now, they've found the car. Rogers is still looking for Natzke.

"If you're not out looking," he said, "you're not gonna find nothing."

I googled Natzke and found he/she run a construction company (small one) at 11 Rota Lane. Unfortunately, I don't know how old the web page is, so I don't know if he still lives there. I think Dawna lives on Rota Lane.

The only possible justification I can see for the local PD taking holiday instead of continuing a search or accepting help from the sheriff's dept. would be if they are pretty sure that forensic evidence would prove that a body was burned inside the vehicle. If the vehicle was burned that bad, a body could have been almost completely consumed. (Total speculation on my part, MOO.)

Still, it is very unprofessional of them not to return media phone calls at all. Refusing to respond to media and refusing help from the sheriff makes the local PD look like there is CYA going on, IMO. I really wish we knew if the boyfriend or ex-hubby was a police officer. Even if he is, we couldn't post it without a valid media link.

If any of Dawna's friends are reading here, please post and let us know what is going on. It seems that the local media has as many questions as we do.

How big is the local PD? Do they have an official academy to properly train officers and use ongoing education, or is this dept. too small for that? Is the community confident that the PD knows what they are doing?

One of the reports I watched said that he told police that Dawna dropped him off at his mom's house. I guess he lives there...betcha a dollar his mom will say he was home by 10:30 and didn't leave all night.

(I'm not thinking you are sucker enough to take that bet, cluciano!)

It sounds like the party wasn't over when they left, so why did Dawna need to "take" her boyfriend home early? Some unpleasantness...drunkenness maybe, or was he just not having fun at the party? MOO

It does seem odd that she works for the police department, and they are MUM about what happened to her.

Certainly looks suspicious that they won't, at the VERY least, just say they are investigating and have no further comment at this time, and ask for tips, etc.
