Right. And for all we know he wasn't in the loop *at all* during the time this initially unfolded. It's been reported in MSM that he was in Denver, though I realize people have questioned the veracity of this (ie, suspecting he may have been lying to cover his tracks for being somewhere else at the time). We don't know the family dynamics, as it's been stated on this thread many times. Maybe the daughters didn't reach out to him with their concerns for reasons of their own that we have yet to learn and instead decided to call the neighbor first. Maybe the daughters' suspicions were immediate. And maybe once police got the call, *LE* took control and steered things a certain way. Who know when exactly BM was told anything about SM's disappearance?? SM's family says they're in the dark ... and so are we!
