I could understand silence if her friends and family thought foul play and just had no info from police and no idea what to do. I DO believe LE is investigating. However, what makes no sense to me is the people claiming she is probably hiding out someplace but simultaneously making NO EFFORTS to convince her to come home on her own or soliciting tips from the public. If she really ran off in an Uber with a bunch of money there are multiple people who would have seen her. She can't hide on her own without interaction with other humans (Our VI, AbuDrake, confirmed she is not and off-grid survivalist type). Those who claim to believe she is alive and want her to come home but simultaneously say getting her case publicity is not a good idea are suspicious, IMO.
