    That crossed my mind too. She didn’t really have to bring anything from home or to pack anything. She got her paycheck, so she could very well buy whatever she needed.

    Why was she interested in New York? Broadway? The park? Because it “never sleeps”?

    She really could do so.

    I've shopped in downtown L.A., and am always amazed how cheaply one can buy food and clothing.

    Hoping and praying Veta is safe and will be found soon.

    JMVHO.

    Definitely, but she would have had to act quickly once in New York as she didn’t have much to last very long. Unless she knew someone there?

    I think she met that someone online. And decided to start over.

    That particular scenario comes back a lot the past 2 decades.

    Have flyers with her picture been spread around all the places that the bus would have stopped? Does anyone know where the stops were and how long the stops last? Also if she would have had to transfer at any of the stops.

    I've tried the Wayback Machine to see if by some chance the URL was captured. It unfortunately was not but I do have the link if someone knows another site like Wayback Machine and wants to try

    Unless she did have more than her family thinks she had... she is an adult, my parents had no idea of the stuff I was doing when I was 19. They probably thought they did, but they sure didn't.

    As the father of a 21yo daughter, I can attest that young adults utilize multiple SM accounts, sharing one’s based on their name publicly with family and friends but also maintaining private ones under aliases for activities online that they keep to themselves. Just because Veta’s phone/email/texts show no NYC connection or plans to leave, IMO there easily could exist these “shadow” accounts where she maintained online relationships unbeknownst to her family.

    Sometimes, people will follow their “real” SM feeds and those of their friends with these alternative accounts so that they can anonymously keep tabs on their friends and family without actually exposing their presence. I hope that Veta’s tech-savvy sisters are exploring this area.

    I have been wondering...

    As I recall... there has been no news of Veta's father in the media during Veta's disappearance....

    If he doesnt live in Sacramento...

    Could he possibly live in New York?

    Just a thought...

    I, too, am wondering if Veta met someone online.

    Or, as stated above, maybe Veta found her father.

    I really hope we get more information within the next few days. I would love to see Veta with her family for the Holidays.

    JMVHO.

    No trace of 19-year-old woman two weeks after she disappeared from Home Depot in Sacramento
    From this article:
    Veta, who lives at home with her parents and two of her sisters, is a full-time student at Sacramento State where she’s majoring in business management. She devotes a great deal of her time to her role as a youth leader at her church.

    This Wendys thing on Linkedin could be very important because Veta worked at Wendys here in Natomas before the Home Depot job.There are 9 Wendys in the times square downtown area and I have only been able to get someone to answer at 7 of them.I do not really trust the workers that answered either.It is on my list to have Vetas Mother tell the Detective when she talks to him next.

    Why do you say that you don't trust them?

    Another member here suggested taking the same bus route at the same approximate time and day, canvassing for information at each stop. Is that possible?

    The weather is getting colder here on the east coast, and COVID restrictions may soon increase. Winter conditions make ground searches and canvassing very challenging, in my experience.
