    Authorities on missing woman in Chiracahuas: 'We can't rule out foul play'

    After an exhaustive search for a missing and endangered woman in the Chiricahua Mountains with no answers, authorities are now investigating the possibility of foul play.

    Janet Castrejon, 44, was reported missing the evening of June 19. She was last seen in a remote section of the Chiricahua National Monument near the Arizona-New Mexico border, an area that is no stranger to human trafficking and drug smuggling, according to the Cochise County Sheriff's Department.

    "We're not focusing solely on the fact she may have just walked away," said Carol Capas, spokesperson for Cochise County Sheriff's Department. "We're looking into several possibilities that include the trail areas where smuggling is common. We can't rule out foul play."

    The family is trying to raise awareness. They have set up a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/findjanet The URL www.findjanet.org has been set up to redirect people to the Facebook page. They are asking people to use #findJanet on social media.

    The family was camping when she disappeared.

    This is a weird and sad one. Why would she let her daughter find her way back to the camp herself? By these accounts, she was mostly blind, had short term memory loss, and the mental capacity of a child. Just ONE of those disabilities would be enough reason to keep an eye on her... why wasn't she asked by her mother to wait in the bathroom for her??

    There are 3 of them....left outside while the mother used the restroom....out walking with the parents and she headed back ALONE....out hiking with the brother and he 'lost' her....I'm with you HMMMMM. Is it possible each thought she was with the other, hence no one knows where she went?

    Every time I read about this woman's disappearance my mind takes me back to 2002 and the murder of seven year old Danielle Van Dam by David Westerfield. He had kidnapped Van Dam from her bedroom and killed her at some point inside his RV while roaming around southern California. So...I am curious if there were other RV campers besides the parents at this campground at the time and, if so, were these other campers questioned and their RVs searched by LE for Janet? I believe that I have read all of the MSM concerning this disappearance but could have missed something.

    This article explains where the story of her being out hiking with her brother came from: http://www.adventistreview.org/chur...ist-woman-goes-missing-during-hike-in-arizona

    Her parents later called her brother, who called police.

    The family has set up a donation page to generate money for a reward. They have earned almost $10,000 already. :thinking:

    Oh man. I'm not liking this at all.
    I don't know why but I'm thinking she never got there. I have nothing to base it on, just a hunch.
    I would love to be wrong.

    Do you suppose the parents changed the story to protect the brother?

    I honestly think she got lost and is lying somewhere, sadly, deceased.

    PLEASE don't take this the wrong way, but if her family wished to have her gone, they would not have waited so many years. The poor girl sustained her injuries when she was 18. There is no indication that her family has done anything other than care for her until this happened.

    Maybe I am naive, but I really think this is an accident. A horrible, horrible, accident.

    BTW the story changing - IDK, I've only been here a couple of years, and I've seen a lot of reporting getting stories mixed up, especialy in the initial stage. The rush to be first often leads to misleading info IMO.
