    Looking at her FB appears she must have recently lost her father and going through some stuff.
    I hope she is found safe.

    I don't know. I am finding very little at this point.
    Yes, I imagine she is going through a lot. Her mother passed in Sept 2015, then she lost her father in March 2019. I looked to see if either was buried in Hampton, but that is not the case.

    Looking at Google Maps it's about 8 miles from Franklin County to Hampton. The road looks pretty straight if that's the way she was driving anyhow.

    Ah, that is rough. If I had had a car when my Dad died, I no doubt would have taken off and driven and driven until I was too tired to drive. Emotional time for a young lady, losing her Dad. I was around the same age. Was his death unexpected? Those are hard to deal with, as it blind sides you- your loved one is there talking and laughing one second, dies the next second, no warning.

    Keeping Brooke in my thoughts and prayers. Maybe she went somewhere sentimental to her and her Dad, or maybe a special place that brings her peace and happiness. Hopefully, she just needed time away.

    Oh wow, she definitely is going through hell right now, poor girl. At least when my Mom died a couple of years after my father, I was married with a second child on the way- something to keep you grounded, know what I mean? She's so young, losing both parents like that. Poor Brooke!

    Your post inspired me to map the possible (likely) route. I used the town of Allison, IA as Brooke was mentioned as living in Allison in her father's obit (Rodney L. Mennen (1962-2019)):

    Google Maps

    I google walked that route. That road is about as straight and flat as could be, but it does cross over some creeks/rivers. You would have to deviate from the road to drive into them, as each one has a straight overpass with straight approaches. I hope LE has checked these waterways for signs of a vehicle entering them, although I sincerely hope that Brooke is somewhere, just trying to recover from her father's recent death.

    Fantastic news!!

    But when I click the link it just shows that I’ve been blocked from the site/page/website ?? I’ve never been on that site before?? That’s a little confusing. I was hoping to read about her being found. I could not find anything on her in the news while she was missing.

    Here you go. From what I understand she was with her brother and apparently not in any danger.

    I was really bothered by the lack of news coverage...
