This is a perfect way to explain it one sentence. Thank you!
It doesn't work like TV unless you have a defined sample like cheek swab, semen, blood, tissue etc. For those samples, where you have lots of 1 kind of DNA, you can have a result in 90 minutes and a complete sequence in a few hours (assuming you have the labs full attention). If you have to go sifting through the detritus in the backseat of some random car looking for fibers that don't belong then you can be looking at weeks of a fully dedicated person and results that will be mostly disappointing.
If they get a stranger's DNA they run a scan on it for anyone that has a record. If they suspect someone, they can get their DNA off a napkin, cigarette, etc to match it.
Do you know if they said the wallet was left out in the car for everyone to see? I know I read that her wallet was in the car, but I hadn't seen mention made of where exactly. She could have had it in the center console or glove box and it wouldn't be visible from outside of the car.
I thought it was mentioned it was left out.
Regarding the water, we don't know if she had another bottle or a small flask with water when she went on the hike, run.
And maybe she didn't plan on being out there very long.
Also, seems to me that if she picked up a hitchhiker who harmed her, or that someone at the parking lot abducted her, then that perp would have stolen the wallet as well. I dunno...
Can you tell me where you saw this reported? Wonder if there was any foul play in her neighborhood..
Yep, it's very frustrating -- could this whole thing be a set-up, and she's many miles from the search site? Certainly possible.
The only argument I could give you on this would be that there are probably a lot of scents in those hiking areas. Dunno. A search for a 2 year old child, using locals, other people from farther out, LE and SAR teams and dogs got nowhere for 2 days, and then a bloodhound got a scent and they followed it, calling for him and they heard him crying, and finally found him alive -- but the other dogs could not get a scent. The big deal of it was that they did not give up.
This one is worrisome to me, too. It's been a long time...

I wonder if she bought anything that needed refrigeration during her shopping trip. If so, you'd expect her to make a quick trip home to drop it off before her hike, IMO.
SandBBM: I am giving this theory more and more of my energy.
Guilty people have passed lie detector tests, innocent people have failed. It depends on the type of person you have in the chair. Also, a common technique used by LE is to publicly say a certain POI is “no longer a suspect” or “has been cleared” it gets the person to relax, let their guard down, which allows LE to get closer to the person and surveil them, and may stop them from lawyering up. Not saying bf is guilty, just a theory. Just hope they find that poor girl.
She didn't get anything that needed refrigeration.
She bought an energy bar and a few boxes of dry tea from what the Findamanda fb page said.
They have never come out and publicly called the BF a POI or a Suspect, at one time, I am sure they looked into the possibility of him being one.
But at The PC, LE said that he took and passed a polygraph test and said he has been cleared for now.
That is good enough for me.
Same here, not Facebook account and can’t see comments. Can only see posts, pics, video
I don't have an account either. I clicked the link in your post. Underneath the image it says "168 comments" - click that and it will (should) open the comments.
I have never seen anyone who looked like A tourist hitchhiking. Any tourist that would hitchhike would be more of your camper/free spirit type of people. I’ve been here on Maui over 40 years, and we used to have a lot of hitchhikers. I believe we still have some, but very few that I see compared to back then. In the old days we also had no bus system, and now we do, it’s only two dollars per ride (unless it went up recently)
Has anyone made a timeline?
Police said it was in the purse along with credit cards and phone, purse was on the floorboard and was visible to anyone who looked in the window. They specifically mentioned the car did not have tinting and it was visible if someone looked.
Lots of good stuff here, on Maui Now:
I've tried to remember. I heard or read that a few days ago.
