    You can find wedding pictures by doing a little sleuthing. Not that it’s relevant, but it appears they were married in November 2012. Beautiful bride and beautiful wedding! I hope valuable time is not being lost in the search for this spunky and quirky (in an awesome way) woman.

    The picture of her alone on Valentine's day ... me neither. May be nothing, my hubby isn't on social media, so I rarely post pics of us together unless we are at an event, or on vacay. Twenty-nine years of bliss though :D

    I'm local to San Jose area
    Very strange no media coverage here. I also go to parks near that area. Something that is bothering me is there are no missing posters.

    My parents have been married for 35 years and I think my mom has posted a picture of her and my dad on social media maybe twice ever. It’s really not uncommon if the spouse isn’t on social media or travels for work often.

    You’re right that she doesn’t mention the husband a lot but he is in some pics on FB and IG.

    Family circulating posters where EV was last believed to be seen or her electronic footprint known is the best thing her family can do at this time to keep focus and attention on EV --their missing wife, sister, friend.

    It's just as important for family to be honest with the public-- that EV was allegedly not acting like herself when she went missing or off the grid. People will know to look for a disoriented person, or one that appears to need help.

    Also, although EV's phone may be turned off, and not emitting any signal of her location, it's possible that the rental vehicle is equipped with gps sensor, and LE working to locate that gray Nissan. There's probably much work going on behind the scenes by LE.

    Family also need to get in front of the camera and make an appeal for EV to call or make contact with anybody she trusts, that can contact LE and her family and to notify them that she is OK.

    All the above will provide a better chance that their collective efforts will lead to information or evidence for LE to upgrade EV's disappearance to involuntary and eligible for more resources expended to locate EV. MOO

    Also from the link supplied:

    The 33-year-old Valenti is the CEO of Tinker Ventures. Her family says she was in the Bay Area for conferences and to meet up with friends.

    Family said Valenti failed to make her flight home from San Jose and that in their last conversation she sounded confused, disjointed and was not acting like herself.

    ITA. With the density of the area, there should be an accurate cell ping. Down to the exact street. And there should be a GPS device on the rental.

    I agree. And honoring WS TOS not to sleuth family - it's very much possible EV's husband's profession or occupation may be a factor in limiting his presence on SM. (I've never had a FB account, and don't expect to have one-- if ever, until career change or retirement. MOO

    100% this!!

    This was my thought too, was actually in the process of typing a very similar post. Was just trying to find a way to phrase it but still stay within TOS.

    This (the bolded) definitely changes things. I wish we knew this in the beginning.

    If she was confused it's easier to understand that she wound up (if she did) past the airport.

    But, why did her phone go silent? MOO
    Thank you. I hope to take look at her SM shortly. I asked because it has been mentioned that she seems to have some highs and lows, few photos of her husband, etc. I don't consider the latter to be that unusual. MOO

    People who are distracted can make a wrong turn and then try to double back. They can miss their offramp. Happens all the time.

    Surface streets near the airport see quite a bit of police activity (mostly minor assaults, some robberies).

    But unless she somehow transferred her phone to someone after talking to her husband, her phone was in the car with her and the phone ended up near Almaden and Camden, quite a bit south of the airport. Either someone hijacked her car once she got off on the proper offramp or she came down the 280, thinking she remembered the directions, wasn't using GPS, and ended up somewhere she didn't plan to be.

    Almaden Expressway branches off the 280 before it gets to the 101, and then runs parallel to the 101, so she would have had to head north (again) on the Almaden Expressway to get back to the airport. I think her GPS would have told her to head north on the 101, though.

    I'm pleased that it seems LE has gotten her cell records and can plot out her drive. I just wish they'd be more specific about the route.

    I'm guessing her first misstep may have involved surface streets, as well. Maybe went around the wrong block? Opportunistic crime? Is it confirmed she stopped at an ATM?

    On the other hand, if EV is in fact voluntarily taking a break, by her own choice, reporting the vehicle as stolen could result in criminal charges against her, that could only add to what may already be a stressful situation for this young woman.

    I think they have better options here.

    MOO

    There's been noting reported at this time about her banking/credit card activity.

    However, he last contact with her family was not considered normal by the family that knows her best.

    Additionally, some persons with professionally oriented pages and an interest in privacy may not want to post about their personal life. (I haven’t reviewed her SM in detail, just saying if it is possibly more work related, etc..again just speaking generally.)

    So, she was more than just distracted, she was confused. And she didn't know where she was.

    She overshot the airport, but what then? If her last known location is Camden/Almaden Expressway, she was right at or near the Almaden Mall, a nice (not crime ridden) shopping center. Lots of businesses, gas stations, etc., etc.

    "Confused" is very concerning. She should be listed as missing and vulnerable.
