    That is why I have thought from the start it could be a closet pedophile. One who may be very respected and well liked in the community but may have molested his own family members and they never told anyone.

    Someone like David Westerfield when he finally ventured out of his comfort zone and kidnapped Danielle Van Dam in order to rape and murder her.

    Someone that the girls may see consistently but never felt uncomfortable around them.

    IMO

    Police released 6 key points. One of them was that they wanted locals to use their "intuition" and report anyone that was acting odd.

    OT:
    Reminds me of the time when my little sister and I rode our bikes to Woolworth's. (70's) I was 11, she was 5. Unbeknownst to me, she had slipped a pair of garish, bright green earrings into her pocket. Not funny at the time, but it kind of is now~lol. After making a purchase, we left on our bikes. I'll never forget the store manager chasing/ grabbing my sister and dragging her back to the store.

    NOT implying anything. :moo:

    Simply jogged my memory is all.

    Excellent thought process! I agree. Once someone had the girls which way would they go to get out of town quickly? Would it make sense to go west on Arbitus continuing up South Evans drive and then turn west on Gilbert drive, south on River Forest Road to gain entry on 380. Or if perp was very familiar with area would he have stayed on Gilbert?? Or would he have gone north to Waterloo?

    The LE must really think it is someone local. I wonder why?

    You make an excellent point. The town has so many winding streets, it felt like a maze when I was there. I bet he had a plan of exit.

    what are the odds of a stranger from another state wandering into Edale and finding that exact blind and concealed portion of the trail and abducting 2 girls without a trace and no one noticing on a Friday afternoon in the summer?
    I think not likely.
    I still believe the person lives there or near the area, lived there in the past or vacationed in that area and is familiar w/ the lay of the land and maybe the girls as well.

    Thank you! The dogs wouldn't be much help if they tracked the opposite way because it would take them from where the person was most recently back to where the person had been earlier. So it tells me that their scent had been more recently in the woods than close to the water, right?

    Thank you Sunlight. 55 years, but justice was finally served. Ugh! Only 17 at the time of the murder and went on to enlist in the military and then worked as a Washington State police officer. It took 5 months to locate Maria's remains. His mother confessed on her deathbed to his half sister. Thank goodness his old girlfriend was brave enough to come forward regarding the unused train ticket. At 72, he's finally getting what he deserved.... not exactly instant karma, but he got what was coming to him eventually.

    Short story for you. When I was about 9 and lived in Sandiego, I was walking to school which was only a block away from my house. This guy in a red pinto pulled up along side me and asked if I wanted to make a hundred. I ran home. I'm so glad I wasn't guilable and would of considered the money not knowing what the pervert meant.

    Tips, maybe? For all we know, they've had calls from locals that gave them enough reason to add certain people to their list of possible suspects.
    Or they could just surmise from everything they know so far that it had to be someone familiar with the area in order to grab the girls and get out in a short timeframe without being seen.
    And that's pretty much what most of us have been thinking all along. This was not a random stranger, IMO.

    Well, it would depend on whether "it" would want a quick release of the urge to use the girls, or if "it" was planning to house them or take them far away. If it was the first case scenario, and it knew the area..continuing on Gilbert and hanging a right on McCoy and taking that to the very end of the road...looks to me like a perfect place that is remote..then dump into the pondy/lake thing there or right into the river, or into the woods.

    If it was someone wanting to not get caught in traffic, then whatever the quickest route to the highway would seem likely..from there, it is a crapshoot.

    Could be it would just take them right into a city..right into Waterloo and into a house or warehouse or shed.

    MOO

    ETA: They could still be in E'dale, however, LE stated that they believe a vehicle "departed the area". But, that could just mean the immediate area by the lake where the bikes were found.

    I just keep thinking of the guy that has been traveling Iowa in a white or black van and trying to abduct kids. We don't know if it's the same guy in all instances, but what if it is.

    Maybe Otto can draw up some maps of the quickest ways to get out of town? Hint hint.
