Hmm OK odd, so the article states the family says she got into an accident where her car was abandoned Friday and the car was subsequently towed that day (not by police, they got it Monday). She then wasn't reported missing until Sunday?!

How did they know she was in an accident? (maybe damage to car) Why the wait to report? (did police make them...stupid) Wondering what these friends know since they saw her last!! Who found the car? Ahh questions...

Jamisha's facebook, not much to it:

Without looking at a map, I'd say it's about 20-30 minutes from where Alexis went missing from. Just basing it on knowing where Alexis was at that gas station, and Lynchburg in general. Trying to figure where Concord is, and if it's where I think, might be closer to 30 minutes difference.

This is scary!! A wreck and nowhere to be found?

Is the date in the thread title correct? By looking at tweets (lots of today, yesterday) I get the impression it should be November 29?

December 2, 2013 Dozens of officers scoured the area around Concord Turnpike on Monday afternoon looking for missing teenager Jamisha Monique Gilbert, who disappeared Friday morning under what investigators are calling “suspicious circumstances.”

The search included canines, a state police helicopter and fire department boats, which looked for signs of the 18-year-old in the James River.

In the river ... that does not sound very good.

What is it about car accidents and people (mainly females if my memory serves me correctly) going missing right afterwards?? It's almost like an epidemic or something. I mean from the cases that I've read, it's not like it was a major accident. Now if someone gets in an accident and has something to hide, then I can see them wanting to get out of there ASAP before cops show up. Wow. This boggles my mind.

Police had a brief news conference Monday afternoon, saying that they consider Jamisha Gilbert's disappearance as being under suspicious circumstances. Between 35 and 40 Lynchburg Police, State Police officers and firefighters have been searching for her.

Gilbert's family says her car was involved in some type of accident on Concord Turnpike. Police didn't think much about it at first, but that changed when Gilbert's family reported her missing Sunday night.

There is an active search and command post for Gilbert near where her car was found on Concord Turnpike. Investigators are using dogs and boats in the search. The James River is less than 100 feet away from Concord Turnpike. Concord Turnpike runs from downtown Lynchburg to Route 460.

Can't find the link now!! Just was reading that she had been accepted to attend college starting in January. Per her fb, she was at least within the top 10% in her high school class and was aiming for higher before she graduated this past Spring.

Yes, that gas station in Lovingston where Alexis was last seen is probably about 45 minutes away from where Jamisha's car was found. Hubby and I were just down there in Lynchburg on Saturday morning, probably only 10 minutes away from where her car was.

Monday, officers searched in the area between Garnet Street and U.S. 460, he said.
Gearhart declined to answer specific questions about the car, Gilbert's intended destination, and whether investigators expect foul play.
"We are concerned for her welfare and for her safety," he said, but added he did not think there was a threat to the community.

Investigators have not found any evidence linking Gilbert's disappearance to Alexis Murphy, the 17 year-old reported missing from Nelson County in August and has yet to be found.

Gilbert was last seen by friends in the city between midnight and 1 a.m. Friday morning. A few hours later, police found an abandoned 2002 Honda Accord near the intersection of Concord Turnpike and Winston Ridge Road.
At the time, they could not identify the driver of the car, but Sunday evening, Gilbert’s mother reported her missing, and officers were able to connect Gilbert to the Accord.
When asked if he believed a crime has been committed, Lt. Dave Gearhart said only that the case is being investigated as “suspicious” by the department’s Criminal Investigations Division.

The first thing I thought of when you said this was that would be a perfect way to get a woman out of her car to abduct her...he hits her car with his vehicle, she gets out to inspect the damage and to call the police but before she can do anything, he grabs her, throws her into his vehicle and then she vanishes.

Is it absolutely confirmed that her parents reported her missing Sunday? That doesn't make any sense to me if she was missing since Wednesday. It appears that her family is very concerned for her safety and it just seems strange that they would wait 4-5 days to report her missing. I don't know, that just doesn't fit with all of the information that's been given. Also, her friends must know something. They were the last ones, according to statements, to have seen her. I think they need to be questioned further.
