    LE has said this before in other cases. Doesn't always mean they believe 100%. IMO

    This is true. I'm wondering if that's why I haven't read it in news reports. Like using Facebook to give him a false security

    yes @gitana1 - two women with their husbands both go missing literally within plain view - except for a few minutes when they weren't.... very coincidental IMO.

    So possible the dog did bolt for some reason? Something frightened it or maybe even tried to attack it? And she did pursue trying to rescue it?

    Questions with that scenario though? Why didn't she yell? If my dog took off or was in danger I would be yelling my head off. Also, dog was supposedly lame (one leg) so how did it travel 2.5 miles? Last question...where is Sheryl now?

    It tells me that the dog was in the vicinity for sure - if it's the same dog that went missing with her. I'm not sure of the location she was last seen yet - we don't have anyone else that saw them except who she was with last. JMO

    I wonder if the dog still had it's leash attached. If not, maybe it did bolt and she went off chasing it.

    i am not sure. They just said it was "matching" the description. It hasn't been confirmed for sure as of right now I don't think. That being said, if the dog was lame how would it get that far? Although, it has been a few days and I guess it could have just been wandering around. I lean towards the whole thing being very fishy and not an abduction.
    To me finding the dog would mean nothing except that the dog was there, still doesn't confrim she was.

    First of all, why didn't she ride with the husband to park the car? Seems like being in a vehicle with AC would be better than standing in the shade in the desert. Second, why expose the dog to the heat at all? I haven't heard the reason yet why the dog and wife didn't just ride with him to "park the car".

    While we don't know that degree of lameness of the dog.... I have a 3 legged old dog and she can run like the wind....

    This is true. For me, I have seen first hand the awful situations people find themselves in outdoors. For now, I'm going to take the husbands word, although the timeline is super super tight.

    I also think if the 'event' centered around something with the dog. I can see this owner just going for it, if she felt the dog was in danger or out of her physical control.

    I'm hoping a search and rescue team with dogs can backtrack/follow the trail of where SP's dog has been.

    I actually don't recall ever hearing of a case where they say they have determined a person is unconnected or have ruled out a person and then it turns out LE was lying.

    I have heard them use equivocating language such as "no evidence to connect the parents." "Nothing to indicate foul play." "We have no suspects."

    Or even "Not a suspect."

    But to say they've determined there's no connection seems much stronger. I don't recall seeing that before.

    No. I checked. At very end, clasped hands in front, but nothing like CW. In fact, he was gesturing "widely."
