    I have no idea how they can find anyone in deep snow. Awful.

    I don't think they'd sift for that (they could use various kinds of sonar, available through a couple of universities nearby).

    I think it's something smaller.

    But if there were a bunker, could a child survive without someone supplying him, in such cold, for more than 3 weeks? I guess LE would know if, for example, camping equipment was missing from the house (she'd have had to bring sleeping bags). I wouldn't even type that if this story didn't have such weird twists and turns.

    Maybe not all the LE got the memo that they were keeping the search today on the DL?

    Yeah. Regardless of what the truth is, it’s clear that they are focusing on that same area.

    Either people are searching, or law enforcement is investigating. It conveys one indisputable thing: That location is incredibly important.

    I just drove by the search area. No activity there today. The mobile command unit is gone from the staging area. The only thing remaining is the portable cell tower. There were no new footprints in the snow at the search area.

    I also drove up Spruce Mt. Road to see if maybe they moved over there but didn’t see anything.

    Maybe they are interviewing people who live around there? That might account for a few LEO there but not a full blown search?

    I have no clue if there are houses or what nearby so I’m just spitballing.

    Her quote was days ago.

    I don’t understand-if they are not actively searching, why won’t they allow groups like Texas Equusearch participate?

    I suppose I already know the answer, because it’s an active investigation-but there is soooo much ground to cover. Unless they know where Gannon is, I see no reason (aside from money/resources) why they wouldn’t be checking every possibility, every day, or allowing other search agencies do so.

    using the idea that perhaps they are (or were) searching for a cellphone/fitbit some type of electronic.. would there be a reason why LE would need to locate the physical electronic and would not be able to find the info needed (texts/gps) thru the carrier ?

    Great thought, perhaps house close by with more video cameras. We can only hope someo n.v e has seen something and did not realize what they saw.

    I think SM had to pick a reasonable time Gannon "went missing" and leave plenty of options open. Since he supposedly went to visit a friend first, she had to pick a time when a friend would be home from school, but early enough she could say he must have left before little sister got home. Leave a big enough chunk of time so it sounds like she wasn't really paying attention to the time and also make it harder to track down a specific time to check security footage in the neighborhood. But I have so many thoughts on all the statements made that contradict other statements and theories.

    There aren’t many groups like TES and such groups are spread extremely thin with limited resources. So even if LE asked for help searching it would be unlikely they would be able to come.

    Thank you for this. You are so on top of this story, you should apply for a press pass!

    A reporter also just tweeted that she has confirmed no active searches today.

    Ashley Franco (@AshleyKKTV) | Twitter

    Tons of rumors today, though (all kinds). The presidential visit is causing a lot of attention on CS and so many Gannon supporters are tweeting to the president, or trying to, and the comments are out of hand. It'll die down tomorrow, I guess.

    I think that’s the most likely scenario. They may be gathering potential witness statements and/or video from homeowners in the area.

    If they are searching up there, it’s because SM was likely there at some point. They’d want to gather everything they can on her activity and movements.

    Aren't "bunkers" underground ???

    I think it's really a stretch to prognosticate that someone (someone affiliated with TS no less) has built a bunker to stash Gannon. Where are people getting all this talk of "bunkers" and "captors"?!?

    I’ve been a member here since the Savanna Greywind case but only posted a little during the Chad Isaak case so I hope I get this right.
    ***HUGE SPECULATION*** The mention of a bunker got me thinking (and I’m grasping at any possibility where Gannon is still alive). WHAT IF the stuff LS was loading into the truck was stuff she was “dropping off” with GS that he would need while he’s gone? I realize this idea is probably full of more holes than Swiss cheese. And LS doesn’t seem the type to be concerned about comfort...but...it would mean he’s alive....somewhere....

    Not arguing or downing this thought but wondering out loud, how could she account for his friend being home from school already but not the sister? I mean, it could be anything especially since I think she’s lying about the “friend” and didn’t even know his “name”

    At least four professional volunteer search and rescue groups have been assisting all along.

    Imagine how confused Someone Else probably is, and take comfort in that!
