She may have been upset after getting laid off work and did not want to tell her family. Maybe she got a ride with someone or maybe she had a boyfriend that her family did not know about? Samoan parents can be very strict and this family was also very involved in church. Maybe she left? I hope she left and was not taken. She was going to Sacramento University... Maybe she met someone her family may not have approved of. Also 3:45pm in a parking lot would seem kind of risky to try and take a person.
