    You can take a look at the park here. It is very typical of FL parks all over the state. The land is so low that boardwalks are usually built to get you out over the wetlands, swamps, bodies of water, etc.

    I'm a little behind but this article says that, per her parents, Noemi was last heard from in a Snapchat. Do we know what time that was? MOO

    Here's the timeline I have. Is this correct? Anything to add?

    Where does the Snapchat fit in? I'm thinking it may be the 6 pm photo sent to her friend but can't find confirmation.

    Also, who last saw her at 4 pm or was this sighting via security footage? MOO

    Feb 11, 2021

    Prior to 4 pm - Noemi took a city bus to Ann Kolb Nature Center. She was
    texting and sending photos to a friend as she made her way on foot and by bus.

    4 pm - She was last seen in the area of the nature center.

    6 pm - She sent her friend one last photo of the scenery at the park.

    7 pm - Noemi's brother became concerned when she hadn't called or texted.

    8 pm - Noemi and her brother both needed to be somewhere else at this time.

    10 pm - Her phone pinged near 2300 South Ocean Dr, about 3 miles away from the nature center.

    11 pm - Her phone pinged again near 2300 North Ocean Drive, about 1.5 miles from the nature center.

    Great job - two things...
    4 pm
    I'm not sure what is most accurate but the MPRC missing poster says she left home after 4pm.
    The sun sentinel says parents say she left home at about 4pm.

    around 7pm - I'd just add that's when brother said he also called police (per miami herald)
    Also from there "Her parents say uniformed officers from the Hollywood police department searched for about two hours on Thursday night before assigning the case to a detective." (per sun sentinel)

    Thanks, Moe. :)

    I used 4 pm as the time she was last seen according to Hollywood Police Department | Facebook. I don't know where MPRC got that information. It is possible that LE received add'l info and never updated their post, but I just don't know that. Do we know how close she lives to the nature center?

    I'll definitely add the time of brother's report and the two hour search by LE.

    Thanks again! MOO

    I'm on a device I can't even link.

    However, think Jersey Shore as in Seaside Heights the show. Or Google Wildwood, New Jersey. Virginia Beach doesn't have one.

    Search continues for missing 21-year-old woman from Hollywood

    Feb 16
    Volunteers returned to the Anne Kolb Nature Center in Hollywood Tuesday morning to continue the search for Noemi Bolivar, 21, who’s been missing since Thursday.


    Noemi Bolivar took a selfie at the observation tower inside the park and sent it to a friend on Snapchat.

    But she stopped sending or receiving messages and phone calls around 6:15 p.m.

    Interesting wording. Does that mean her phone was off?

    Thanks for this, I'm watching now.

    He said she has a degree in Wildlife Ecology, so surely she is very capable of wandering around in a nature reserve. I suppose that can quickly change if you get lost, and it's Florida (creatures and swampland).

    It is a little bit odd that she arrived at the park so late in the day, especially if it takes her a half hour to get there by bus, and yet it closes at 6. Was she meeting someone?

    This article says:

    https://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/broward/article249264735.html

    "Hollywood officers said her cell phone pinged near 2300 South Ocean Drive, which is about three miles away from the nature center, at 10 p.m., according to the Missing Person Support Center.

    The phone pinged again at 11 p.m., this time at 2300 North Ocean Drive, about a mile and a half from Ann Kolb."

    So her phone pinged south of the park at 10 pm, then pinged north of that an hour later at 11pm, which is a walking distance of about an hour from 2300 S Ocean to 2300 N Ocean. (So it is doable if she was walking).

    Which link gives the details on the times her phone last pinged? I can’t seem to find it.

    I believe this is Noemi's Pinterest:

    Noemi Bolivar (nbolivar04) - Profile | Pinterest

    I'm immediately interested in her Pokemon folder (not sure if she played on her phone). That might be one reason she enjoyed walking through the park. I used to chase those things down all over the place when the app first came out, and the farther out in the middle of wilderness you are, the "rarer" Pokemons can pop up. Imo.



    @mlhenn the link in my post (#30) has the ping times.

    Multiple law enforcement agencies are assisting in the search for a missing 21-year-old woman with autism.

    Hollywood police officers, K-9 units and deputies from the Broward Sheriff’s Office were taking part in the search Wednesday just south of the Anne Kolb Nature Center, where Noemi Bolivar was last known to be.

    They said they believe she caught a bus to go hiking at the nature center.

    [​IMG]
    “She’s just a nature girl. She loves birds. That’s her passion, go look at the birds and the plants and everything,” her mother, Marycel Bolivar, said.

    Noemi took a selfie at the observation tower inside the park and sent it to a friend on Snapchat.

    But she stopped sending or receiving messages and phone calls around 6:15 p.m.

    Noemi’s parents say she is high-functioning, however she has the social maturity of a 15-year-old girl.

    Was she texting the friend or talking to the friend that she was sending the photo to?

    From the video, the search area is described as:

    1) Wooded area just south of the Ann Kolb Nature Center near the Intercoastal Bridge
    2) Just across the street from the observation tower where she took a selfie
    3) Just off Sheridan Street

    I’m very familiar with the areas where her phone pinged as I’ve vacationed there and spent hours walking up and down N/S Ocean Drive. In a normal year, it would be pretty touristy right now, but I’m not sure how COVID has affected visitation to the area.

    The area where her phone LAST pinged, N Ocean Drive, is not far from the Margaritaville resort and is near gobs of hotels/lodging. Again, in a normal year, this area would be pretty populated right now, especially during the daylight hours.

    It is actually almost 8 miles straight East of where Leila Cavett went missing.

    The S Ocean Drive location is right near the Trump hotel in Hollywood. It’s a relatively nice area full of many high-rises.

    Great to have a local! Thanks for your insight, @zucchinibread.

    This is from yesterday but it has video of Noemi and a map showing where her phone pinged on N. Ocean between Taft St and Magnolia Terrace.

    Yes, I read in one article that it was about an hour between pings at Magnolia Terrace and then Taft. Indicates walking speed.
