    I am such a doofus! Trying to scan through a few cases too quickly, my eyes landed on the term missing searcher and I swear, my heart stopped. Lol Just goes to show you how important it is to read things thoroughly.
    Do you guys think there’s very many people who might want to search alone, forego the entire operations and go check points of interest to themselves? I hope not. That’s what scares me the most because that person would be at greater risk if something went wrong leading to injury or getting lost...
    Also, on a personal note: I’ve always thought that you @Trackergd is who I would most want to be on my case if I ever went missing out hiking, camping, etc. You have this all down to a science! Just sayin...

    Thinking of all the searchers today. I wish I could be there to search too! Please be safe out there.

    I hope Suzanne is found today!

    Where should MG have raked or smoothed the ground with a machine? I'm seeing no space for using a machine?

    I’m assuming the rock retaining wall is the last part of that project, so the area probably looked a lot different in early May.

    yes, I saw that and agree. Does not look natural.
    If you read about decomposition, some weeks after a body is planted, tissues liquify and body mass is lost at the rate of 5 lbs per day.
    Indentations in ground is one of the giveaways to finding
    buried bodies in SAR instructions.

    I’m also no rock wall expert but if you look at Chris’ first pic to see the build of the entire wall and then compare it to the right hand side where the sand has sunken, the right hand side does not appear to be similar to the rest of the build.

    I wonder if that right hand side was even supposed to be part of the wall? It looks more like 6-8 rocks placed on top versus how the rest of the wall is more layered.

    Another wonky Barry wall. I wonder when he will decide to redo this one.

    At least one thing MG and JP have in common is that they both worked at the Salida jobsite. Interesting that they were both selected by BM to beat feet to the Broomfield site. Was it because BM was afraid they might notice anomalies at the Salida jobsite?

    MOO

    The ultimate problem with a mountain lion defense is that mountain lions can't and won't drag bodies very far, and that process (and the feeding process) is messy, leaving blood, drag marks, innards, and a carcass left within a mile of the attack. An expert will be happy to show the jury the photos of the last 7 or 8 fatal attacks in the States and Canada.

    Way back when the news of MG 'raking' the beach area, we had photos of the beach area
    w/ rake tine marks AND a few large rocks, BUT
    there was an open area that had no big rocks at all and the wall was not totally across the beach area.
    Anyone else recall this. ?? The beach area was totally different back then. So additional 'rock'
    work has been done there. MOO.

    I agree, as a rafter, the vast majority of properties along that river do have no trespassing signs, absolutely zero to do with not wanting people to see something, but to keep us from taking lunch on their property (understandable). It would be unusual if they did not. Rafting season was somewhat better this year than the last two, with a higher flow for longer. I don't see anything being buried there, but MOO.

    -.-.-
    What, if MG noticed some unusual things at the work site, asked one innocent question too many and therefore BM cut off the work and sent her home?

    could be. i always believed he wanted them away from the site, and salida, in general, for a few days, in case they noticed anything unusual, and that's why they were left hanging until tuesday.

    Brother of Suzanne Morphew begins 6-day search in Colorado | 9news.com

    SABBM:
    Her brother, Andy Moorman and volunteers from Indiana are beginning a six-day search effort Thursday morning in Chafee County to search the mountainous area where she was last seen.

    Volunteers are meeting at the Poncha Springs Visitor Center, located at 7010 US 285 in Poncha Springs to begin the search.

    The mother of two is originally from Indiana, but moved to Colorado with her family a couple years ago, according to WTHR, our sister station in Indiana.

    The Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation are serving in a support role in Moorman's search effort and not in a lead capacity.

    A candlelight vigil for Morphew is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Sept. 25 at Riverside Park in Salida.

    Back in May, search teams combed through a construction site outside of Salida. At the time, investigators would not say if they found any evidence.
    _______________________

    6 days of grueling physical searching vs. a 27-second, incoherent video.

    Such a stark contrast.

    Here is a screenshot from the Channel 9 News broadcast of May 22, 2020 which clearly shows the beach area., and a current screenshot from PE's Chris's Twitter feed. For accuracy, merely compare the three trees against the skyline. Today, there is clearly a sandy beach, but back on the eleventh day of SM's disappearance that entire sandy area was under high water. I thought I understood MG to say that she finished that underwater area off the day before SM' disappeared. When MG said BM told her to rake it out so the muck wouldn't show, just what could she possibly have meant?
    It's bizarre, I think. IMO

    I’m curious to get your opinion on this as a rafter:

    If you look at the first twitter Pic that Chris posted that shows the entirety of the beach/wall, you’ll notice a build up of river rocks to the right of the beach.

    Is a build up of rocks like that natural or would you think it is more likely to be part of the project work?

    The reason I ask is that, it’s pretty common for that to be natural here in N.C. where I live based on the water flow. But in Chris’ pic, the build up of smaller river rocks (especially around the sandy area in question) does not look naturally occurring based on where the rocks are located.

    Or said another way, are the rocks most likely naturally occurring in their location but something has disturbed the natural formation around that sandy area?
