    @Emi -- thanks for your local, critical update on missing EV.

    It seems now that there's more information known to LE that's not made it to MSN yet.

    We know the standard community / family protocol for missing persons, and it's already been 4+ days, and not seeing it yet with this case.

    MOO

    Possibly, if she has any known medical conditions, moo.

    Apparently, they don't have a reason to do so.

    I keep thinking they must have a reason for treating this as a voluntary disappearance. What is it?

    She has already been missing four days. It is understandable why her family is so worried. I am too. MOO

    I wish some friends/colleagues who last saw her in Palo Alto would make a statement of some sort. I feel like it would be helpful to know WHERE in Palo Alto she was last seen, and with whom, and what time. Depending on where she was specifically it would help determine whether she likely took 101 or 280 towards the airport. Not to mention her state of mind when last seen would be pertinent to exploring what might have happened.

    MOO.

    Tbe only scrap of new info on FB that I see is the car's plate number:

    Ca plates 8LUD641

    That might have already been posted, I don't know. For those of you who are local to San José, you could consider signing up for Nextdoor.com and posting the missing flyer and the car plate #. Eventually it might make its way to the Almaden neighborhood or where ever she is.

    For some reason I think they will find her and she will be just fine.

    Maybe it's not that they have a reason, it's that they don't have a reason. In other words, without any evidence to contradict it, they automatically assume a missing adult is missing voluntarily. Although her family is saying adamantly that her being missing without contact, IS reason to contradict it. So...

    I honestly hope she's okay somewhere, but I suspect that's likely not the case.

    I'm confused, it wasn't clear to me if he was on the phone with her because she was lost and he was trying to help her? Did she call him for help? Egads, these reporters need to come to WS for interview school!! She didn't ask him how the call ended? What did she last say? Did the call end and then her phone was off?

    HW said; "So my last communication with her was on the phone Monday night, after the last person saw her. And it was on the phone, umm, trying to figure out where she was. She was still saying she was going to the airport, but was also bouncing off of topics".

    Bumping map:
    Palo Alto to San Jose - Google Maps

    ETA: Upon an initial glance all the green areas (State Parks) appear to be Southwest of this road.

    Water to the north.

    Moo.

    That would be great.

    What makes you think so? And what would be some ideas of where she is right now? I want to have hope!

    That specific area where she went missing got impacted by the PG&E power cutoff

    Sure. I have overshot and undershot exits many times.

    San Jose is my hometown; I was born there. I lived in and around the area for many years and I'm less than an hour south of there now. If I were going to SJ from Palo Alto, I'd take 101; it's a straight shot. However, if for some reason she chose to take 280, she'd then cut over on 17/880 to get to the airport. IF she overshot, 87 would be the next best way to double back. I can't imagine a non-local attempting to take surface streets. And honestly, I cannot imagine missing the airport exits; they are clearly marked. MOO

    I think she might know someone in the area. I don't know her, just a feeling I have.

    This map is more specific, Magz. It includes Palo Alto, the airport, and the location of her last location/cell phone ping which has been described as
    • Almaden Expressway and Camden Avenue in San Jose, and
    • Vegas Drive and Menlo Street in San Jose
    Both are basically the same area: Google Maps

    Wouldn't surprise me that she knows someone in the area. I just can't come up with why an outgoing, social, tech exec would not return her rental car and miss an important awards ceremony.

    It was reported that she was there for a conference and to meet up with friends. So, I think it's a given that she knew people there but I don't think she went visiting friends on her way to the airport when she had the rental car to return.

    And, according to her husband, she was confused and was trying to figure out where she was, still saying she was going to the airport... Why was she confused? Medical issue? Did somebody drug her? MOO
