    "An eleven-year-old girl came forward claiming that she had seen Lauren being abducted by a stranger.

    An eleven-year-old girl witnessed Lauren being abducted by an unidentified white male. She saw the man forcing Lauren into a car."

    Any info on this girl and where she saw it happening?

I am going to make additional copies with markups on this new detail and forward to the DA's office.
    Tracker - I grew up in this area and had a few friends that lived in Park Springs around this time, I'm trying to get in touch with them to ask them about the POI with the bad arm, boots and yellow dirty socks.

    I can tell you that right next to the motel is a little shopping plaza and the corner store was called Johns Newstand. Not sure if it's still there or not. It was a seedy little place, my friends and I could go in there and buy cigarettes when we were 14, no questions asked. I imagine that's the store she would go to with her friends. It was a great place to walk to as a kid because it was the only place back then that was within walking distance that you could go to and get chocolate bars and/or candy. Also, it was a place that sold dirty magazines, marijuana papers and cigarettes so there would be some strange men hanging outside of that store from time to time.

    If I remember correctly, this was investigated and found to be a different girl or was discounted. Can't remember which.

    Thank you for that additional information. I will see if the store is still there.

    The mother was weepy/puffy eyed the entire time, had dark circles around her eyes and would occasionally break down in tears for short periods. I have no idea what information the "expert listener" who was assigned to be her "personal aid and communications person" during the search overheard. That person was a female member of GPSR and all the conversations that individual overheard were turned over to the PD and FBI. I have never seen the transcripts. The Chief of GPSR never disclosed that information to the SAR team members.

    I know that her father and the FBI Agent or Sgt Cote did take a trip to Florida to follow up on a lead but found nothing. Looking back over the articles, I did find that there were extended family on the mothers side that lived in Florida. If they were staying in the Vincent Motel at the time (as noted in one news article)....well...anyone can do that math.
    Maybe the mother owed money for drugs and they had warned her and because she didn't pay up, this was the result.

    That has been a long held theory and was discussed at length by local and Federal LE at the time of the search.

    The buildings overgrown on the left are what I was told were Pennhurst buildings for women, now on the VA Hospital property. I don't remember them being searched. Even in 1988 they were overgrown and in very bad condition. I can only imagine what might be found in them.

    This is the field and woods behind the strip mall. Not sure if this was searched or not. Seems a bit open for an abduction, but the woods offer some cover from view. Might be worth a look before spring while the weeds etc are dormant.

    Did Christina write her own obituary?

    Just to update anyone new to the case, I was the SAR footprint tracker on this case and have extensive files and news clippings of this case (and all my cases). I have worked this case for 30 years and am not about to give up.
