Just curious-if Linnea did contact the El Dorado LE and told them that she was fine, not really missing, and staying with someone right now would they withdraw her from being an "at-risk" missing person? Like, is that enough? If so, if Linnea really is happily staying with someone and healthy in every way it seems like the fastest way to end this would be to give LE a call.

I would have to say that El Dorado County Sheriff's would make a public statement if they know for a fact that Linnea is somewhere safe.

And I have to agree with you that the best way for everyone to end the pain of not knowing Linnea's well being is contact LE.

The clean bill of health statement seems like really bad reporting/wording from The Daily Mail and not any "real" source (either the family, Linnea, LE, or Sutter Health). I don't know any mental health facility that would use that terminology while still recommending medication and continued out-patient treatment which has also been a part of the story since the very first day. I don't see any major contradictions unless I am just missing it.

I've been checking the family fb throughout this day and it appears they are NOT deleting posts. High 5s to them for that! I hope that practice continues.

I'm just curious how so? What have you been hearing up until now, and what made it seem/feel so different to you?

I keep wondering if any of these sightings were actually Linnea and not just a number of girls that would resemble her. There has to be something that indicates that foul play didn't occur and she wasn't abducted on the day she went missing, but yet there is really no concrete evidence of this that we have proof of. There hasn't been any individual or agency stating to the media that she has been seen and talked to face to face. Anybody can call in a sighting, that really means nothing.

Yes, let's see how long they leave those posts up. I took a couple of screen shots to see if they delete. Some posters are very upset with the relentless search.

For what it is worth...read the comment by JK posted 10 hours ago via mobile.

She claims that someone claiming to be able to have direct contact with Linnea...and claiming that Linnea was with someone and was safe in Sacremento...tried to talk to the family. But the family wouldn't have anything to do with them.

Several other interesting comments under the latest post that is asking for volunteers on 7/7 and 7/8.

YES I was wondering the same, I mentioned that in one of my last posts on the prior thread. I was at Discovery Park today (on my own, not officially searching, but with a watchful eye). It wasn't even all that busy today and I still not only saw numerous people who could've been her with changed appearance, I got the feeling people were watching me as well just in case. The friends I was with mentioned it too and didn't even know much about the case or the rumored sighting at the park, so I don't think I was being overly "why are you looking at me?!?" I can't post any official MSM links because there really aren't any but it was reported here from someone listening to a radio scanner - as such I will gladly edit/delete this if necessary.

I might look a LITTLE bit like her but not much - I mean side by side with a missing poster you'd think no way, but from a distance, potentially 'disheveled,' potentially appearance changes... it would be hard to say without talking to her directly or seeing her VERY close up. I could easily see people calling in potential sightings especially if they were being extra cautious or vigilant or whatever you want to call it.

I must say I can't blame girls/young women for running away even if they're NOT her. I was creeped out and I can only imagine I got a tiny taste of what the women who actually look more like her are experiencing.

Edited to add: "it" referenced above was the rumored sighting on the archery range, nothing today that I know of.

The meaning of, "For what it is worth", in my post was.. "you can read the info and decide for yourself what you to choose to believe...or choose not to believe."

As for me...I take what I read on FB with "a grain of salt"...by which I mean...
"I take it at face value, while being skeptical as to it's truth."

There you go...It is what it is. <Mod Snip>

Nevermind what poor LL herself would be feeling if she is in fact trying to stay away! My point was I can see how easy it'd be to have invalid calls on sightings, 'potential' sightings, and even women running when they were "seen" whether or not they were LL. I could've called in potential sightings numerous times just today based on the people I saw and I can only assume I'd have been wrong. None looked ENOUGH like her for me to call once we got closer but I saw a LOT of people who looked like her from even a fairly short distance. Do I think any WERE her, no? But could someone easily make that mistake and call it in? I would think so.

Also for what it's worth, I didn't see any of the LL missing posters out there including near the archery range. I'm sure the park tries to keep flyers off of the trees or there'd be hundreds, but I didn't see any in the bathrooms, on the bulletin boards, etc. If she really was seen there should there be some? Is someone taking them down? I didn't scour every possible poster location but I did walk through the parking lot and past several bulletin boards and didn't see anything. Like I said all I have to go on is someone here thought they heard a sighting at the park on a radio scanner so it could've easily been a call from someone who thought it was her when it wasn't.

All MOO... life experience and a little speculation based on what I've seen here and on FB only. I hope I'm not overstepping bounds or TOS here - if I am I apologize and will try to understand better.

I know many times when I'm out and about I've turned my head from a distance because a saw a blonde with a ponytail that looked like my daughter. With everyone wanting to help I could see how there would be many calls of potential sighting. The sighting of her in the car could have also been someone that looked like her?

What do you do in something like this, assume the worst and hope for the best. In other words until we have proof from a good source that she is somewhere safe, we should treat this like any other missing case with the possibility of foul play.

It's definately happened before where LE has stated that there is no indication of foul play and later it's turned out different.

The people that are claiming to know she is safe on FB really need to back that statement up with proof.

She could actually make a public statement herself to put an end to this.

I know... it's all confusing!! I'm so sorry about your daugher and I can only imagine how many times you've turned your head hoping, given I was doing that with someone I don't know other than via here, FB, and the news.

There was a DART (Drowning Accident and Rescue Team) crew out today and I kept stressing about that too until I remembered we see them probably 1 out of every 5 times we're on the river... and they certainly weren't seeming rushed or stressed or anything which always makes me relived. vs. seeing them when they are stressed.

Public statement would be so great if she can, or is up to at some point (hopefully soon!) doing that.

I'm still scared for her on a number of different levels and I hope she's ok.

If it is possible that she met with foul play on day one, the investigation would have been handled differently.

There would have been a search of her home, phone, computer and cameras in the area checked. Whether any of this has been done we don't know.

I hope they know more than what we do, to confirm that she has runaway.

One needs only to look at the reliability of Eyewitness Testimony in the courts to realize how flawed it *can* be.

Had there been more to it at the start, Sacto would not have turned-over the case so readily to ED in the manner in which it did.

Oh, my daughter is fine. I was just trying to illustrate how inaccurate a sighting could be. She did put me through some very terrifying times though in her teenage years. She snuck out of the house one night and I started hunting her down. She found out I was on her tail and managed to avoid me for a week. Everyone helped hide her, nobody snitched. Yes, and during that time, she was gang raped and didn't tell me until years later.

Would have, or should have? I'm new to all this so I'm honestly asking.

I so hope you're right and that she's somewhere safe - or at this point at least pretty safe and comfortable until she gets her bearings.

I'm so very sorry to read this. I hope she is ok now, and you too. :-(

(as well as to be expected after such a terrible event, that is)

Did Sutter have outside video cameras? I pulled it up on "street view" on Google earth, but I can't tell if it has cameras.

It looks like it would be a busy place at 1:00...I wonder if they have any eye witnesses that saw her leave.

They don't say if they feel she left on foot...or if she got into a car...I'd want to know those things.

It would be sooo interesting to know what Linnea's psychiatrist...or therapist think about all this. I wonder if they have had input as to the search (without violating HIPPA/patient/client confidentiality).

It should have been handled differently if there is no proof of her actually being seen beyond that day when she left the treatment center.

I'm worried the initial approach may have altered the investigation. If these sightings are not true.

I have to hope that they know more.

Sharing my daughters story was just a way to illustrate how even if she has ran away there is still a high potential for harm to come to her.

I won't rest easy about this until it is confirmed she is alive and somewhere safe.
