I read that. Those look like Pre 2007* to me Chevy/GMC. Those models are much more similar looking versus the newer Chevy/GMC models. That truck also appears to be lowered(so probably 2wd) and have chrome rims.

*The asterik for 2007 is because the new body style began in 2007 there was also some of the older body style sold as 2007's and badged as Silverado classics. Classics because that body style had been around since 1988 with minor differences from year to year. So as far as that goes the ruled out truck could have been one of several years as it appears to be customized.

Also, she may have felt she was quick and smart enough to "lose" whoever was tailing her. As we sit and look at these pics of her we feel fear and dread, but when you're in that situation yourself and all is well with the world you just don't believe anything bad could ever happen.
Or, given that she's an attractive woman, maybe having untoward attention directed at her became background noise. A minor irritation, not a physical threat.

If every other vehicle has some scrub hanging out the window cat calling, yet another one may have gone unnoticed.

This is probably a stupid question... I am NOT a bike rider, but as a child I was ALWAYS told to ride FACING traffic. However on busy roads I always see adult bikers riding in the same direction. Can anyone explain? AND why no helmet? 4 miles... at 2am... helmets don't stop abductions tho!!!
Something is just "off" with this case IMO.

@Notlaw

As per the forum rules, we're not allowed to sleuth anything or anyone that hasn't been presented to us...which Im sorry to say isn't very much. So no matter how you slice it, people are going to be talking about the same things over and over until new evidence is brought forth.

Your right.

They must have additional footage/photos.

Laws say you have to ride with traffic nowadays...don't ask me why. But no idea why no helmet-at least she might have been mistaken for a man if she had a helmet on

I've been working hard on the car -now I'd like to work on her path... and try to figure where something may have happened IF the truck was following her by purpose or chance - by trying to guess the speeds of bike and truck
In the eary days I believe it was said she would of travelled from Ryan Street down west congress street to her home. I am not sure of her exact street name.

Today I saw this Map posted on one of the news facebook pages which may be handy for reference. http://goo.gl/maps/FWsE

In Louisiana, it's against the law to bike against traffic. And on sidewalks.

Ahh... thanks for the tidbit. I've got my fingers crossed then that they've found something important and are working on it.

I think it varies by state, maybe even municipality.

In PA, bicyclists ride with traffic.

I asked about that (disturbance) on the chat...but never got an answer. I also asked on here for the locals or voluntary searchers if they had heard anymore about it. Especially the vincinity. In BW's neighborhood...or elsewhere.

I am pretty sure in TX (or at least my city), you ride against traffic. That is what I see people doing and what I was told way, way back when I was in elementary school.

But, I'd rather do that and know everything that's going on, than ask something stupid that's been answered multiple times. And the people who do it sometimes even say "Oh, I'm sure this has already been asked, but..." YES! It's been asked and answered, asked again and answered yet again, and on and on and on.

If, at the 13th thead you are still wondering why they can't just ping her phone and go get her today, or want to talk about ghostly figures in pics of this truck and that truck, puh-LEASE go back and R-E-A-D first.

That is all.
LOL, you're right, that's why earlier, I said that when you know where you've left off on posts, go to the end pages where we are, go back a couple pages, and go forward, you'll catch up better that way, and also know what's been asked already and probably answered.

They had the wrong type of car at first. Got the right one and it panned out. So IF they have the wrong make and model of the truck that dwfinately hurts progress here.

I keep saying the truck looks like a Dodge ram quad cab. IS ANYONE REALLY WILLING TO BETMONEY THAT IT IS NOT?
I will. Look at the pictures that were posted recently(can't remember who now, since I'm getting long in the tooth)same truck no doubt.

The never-ending linear thread is a chatbox-style discussion. Nothing is organized or separated into subtopics. So yes, let's do everything possible and one way is for the mod to make a Mickey subforum.

You are excused
A subforum cannot be created for every single person that goes missing. Someone correct me if I am wrong, but that seems to be for cases that go on for a very long time or include multiple victims.

I start at last and read back before I ask. Unless I'm severely pressed for time and am willing to risk being obnoxious. That happens now and again.
