    I read a little more at FB and unfortunately, I must say that it seems as if there is more information that doesn't sound too promising for Tarasha's "safe" return, but like you I hope they can find some answers and/or tips that will lead them to learn where she is and what happened.

    Like you stated, the friend obviously knows something about what happened to Tarasha. They had to have met up at some point for Tarasha to get the keys if she was indeed driving the truck. The fact that she was said to have been alone in the friends truck is very worrisome...was this some type of set up by friend or friend of friends? was Tarasha the initial target of someone? I saw comments about "friendS" at the FB link so sounds like there are other friends that possibly and/or should know Tarasha's whereabouts on this day. I pray that they'll find it within them to provide LE and Tarasha's family with some information they have...if they have any.

    Prayers to the family and friends of "Pooh"...and prayers that today is the day they get the answers they need to find Tarasha.

    Experts join search for missing Selma teenager

    A team of two search experts from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has joined forces with local law enforcement authorities as the hunt continues for a 17-year-old teenager who went missing more than a week ago.

    The members of Team Adam are not identified, but generally are representative of retired federal, state or local law enforcement, said Bob Lowery, a spokesman for the center.

    [snip]

    The two team members arrived in Selma on Tuesday and met with family members of Tarasha Benjamin, said Angela Benjamin, a Selma City Council member and relative of the missing teenager.

    Dive teams search for missing girl

    Investigations at waterway in the northern portion of Dallas County led officials to land again as tips evaporated into more questions about the location of missing 17-year-old Tarasha Benjamin.

    [snip]

    Officers and rescue members began investigations early Friday morning and continued into the afternoon until leads ran out.

    “We’re following up on any lead or any idea that may be able to lead us to either to a safe return of the missing person, or if this turns into a recovery situation, to that,” said William T Riley, Selma police chief.

    Search continues for missing Selma teen

    Residents in Selma are searching frantically for a teen who went missing last month.

    Because the search is becoming so large, Selma Police have asked for extra help from across the state.

    It has been 15 days since 17 year old Tarasha Benjamin left home and never came back.

    [snip]

    "Well we've had specialized teams as far as Huntsville, Athens, Alabama, Shelby County, Montgomery, Wetumpka, that have brought specialized teams and search equipment, and personnel to assist with the search. We've had dogs, and we've had helicopters and we've also had a dive team come in," said Rhonda Abbott, Interim Director of the Dallas Co. EMA.

    Still no sign of teen

    Nearly three weeks have passed since Tarasha “Pooh” Benjamin left her house to go to a nearby flea market.

    Still, experts from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children continue to work in the search for the 17-year-old Selma teenager.

    Linda Benjamin, one of the coordinators of the family efforts to find Benjamin, said the experts, a team of two, have asked the family to discontinue its search and allow the specialists to continue.

    But the family continues to gather information, said Angela Benjamin, a Selma City Council member and relative of the missing girl.

    “They asked us to keep doing our information search and we’re still collecting data,” the council member said.

    Still no sign of Tarasha ''Pooh"" Benjamin. Investigators have a POI they are interviewing and have asked the family to no longer do searches (investigators want to do their own searches)

    Clearly, this isn't likely to turn out well. How horrible for this family! Praying for Pooh!!
