    What about red light cameras at nearby locations?
    I did a search and see there are some, i just don't know how to link it here.
    This past summer I had to call about a malfunctioning light at an intersection that I went through twice, 4 days apart. They were very helpful at getting back to me and checking with the times I gave them.

    I am thinking that the phone used for internet would not have been able to make or receive calls. I was assuming it was a phone that had no contract on it and was able to access internet by wifi only. When I upgraded my phone I still have my old phone here and can access internet by wifi on it. Anyone know if there is an app or anything that you could still make calls on such a phone? Mistivon is there any way to confirm if this internet phone was a working phone that could also make and receive calls?

    If somebody was repeatedly calling her right before she left the Goodwill, I'd bet money that individual knows what ultimately happened to her.

    Good idea, it'd be ironic if a red light cam actually served a useful purpose for once.

    Could be skype or something similar, yes. It would help to know which phone she was receiving the calls on, and what song the ringtone was.

    I think there are a lot of internet apps that allow messaging and calling. Does the shopping strip have wifi? Does Jon's? The church?

    Yeah, they need to get her phone records asap.

    I believe any scenario except voluntary missing. Unless of course she's hiding from someone wanting to do harm to her but I think she would have disappeared under different terms then.

    I'd like to see friends posting stories of Mari to humanize her and use the hash tag #MariStories or something. Also more pics need to be available and spreading like wild fire.

    Your first paragraph outlines a scenario that makes the most sense to me. I think the "music playing" was someone contacting her and she left GW to meet that person. I think she fully intended on returning to GW and had no intention of leaving her sister stranded.

    What baffles me a bit is that the sisters are described as shy and sheltered, yet MG has experience with drugs and risky modeling/hostess activities. I'm not judging her in the slightest and I do believe she is a victim of abduction, but can't reconcile the "sheltered" description with drugs/modeling. (I do understand that shy people are often drawn to modeling and performing as those activities provide a way to break out of shyness while on stage.) I admit this disconnect is confusing, and I also acknowledge I don't need to know everything. Bottomline is I want her found (safely!).

    She could have also used her other phone as a 'hotspot' to utilize it's connection for an app her internet phone to message/call.
    Again, all theory without documented phone records to support it.

    She might just be insecure which can come across as shy and reserved. When someone is shy or insecure and looking for attention, maybe in her case ( modeling, dancing, escorts ) their looking for some validation through these acts. It can become addicting as its your only source of attention. It temporarily fills whatever she's missing in life with empowerment. Drug use is someone self medicating a problem deeper inside. Insecurity is a huge problem in LA for not just young people, but adults. I spent most of my entire life in LA watching so many people waste there lives trying to compete with everyone. Not only do the rich and famous people I know still have to have the newest most expensive everything, the poor also try to emulate that lifestyle. Large Latino families living with 6 people in a studio apartment in the Barrio still drive a BMW. So for MG to be involved in drugs or modeling is absolutley understandable and the norm. Unfortunately it's all to commen for those in that lifestyle to get caught up in it and end up in a situation they can't get out of. Especially if you're gullible and shy. I'm not even going to touch the fact that the Valley is the biggest porn hub in the world and minors are getting into home porn on an alarming level to become, in their peers eyes, famous. I've seen it all down there believe me. Bad decisions can have detrimental consequences especially in the city of Angel's. And I do believe she knows her abductor/abductors.

    Thank you for your insight.

    I am sympathetic to her plight and appreciate knowing a bit more about the environment there.

    I thought the sister was riding along with MG on a couple of deliveries for MG's job, and then they spontaneously decided to look for a GW to purchase items for a party.

    Am I recalling that correctly?

    Yes. Mg had a part time job for a delivery service. PostMates. It is like Uber, but you pick up food or supplies and drop them off. She had 2 deliveries in Venice Beach area, and her younger sister went along for the ride.

    They were returning home and apparently her sister remembered that she needed some things for an 80's theme party---so she wanted to stop at a vintage clothing type store to find something. MG googled where to stop, so it was not a pre-planned destination.

    That also tells us that she did have the use of a smart phone with a browser at that time.

    So her smartphone wasn't wifi only then. I have in the past had two phones, where one had an internet plan but no voice plan. In that case, I could still use the phone for calls but had to pay per minute. Maybe she had that setup and rarely used the phone for calls. That may explain why her sister didn't recognize her ringtone.

    Make sure you get all of her known email addresses from the family today so we can search the Internet for anything.

    Maybe they finally disclosed something to the family realizing the lack of any transparency was causing major upset....?
    Can anyone confirm that Sarah/family will be at the search?

    I haven't caught up with threads but this on caught my eye so if I'm being redundant, forgive me. Yes good idea about her emails. We need those. And I know it may not be possible but if we can get get cell number I can run a social media trace using her cell # and hope it generates some hits.
