My theory is that the kidnapper was known to the family, but not a friend, i.e. the way you would know your local bank teller. I don't think the abduction has anything to do with any of the family members' past or present situations. I do think that this person is a male, acting alone and not creepy in any way, in fact, quite the opposite, in that everyone would think he would be the last person on earth to do such a thing. The kidnapper and the girls became acquainted while the girls were riding in the neighbourhood and I think the abduction occurred in one of the parking lots and that the girls were locked in a room and the bikes staged immediately. I do not think the girls were ever at the lake and I know nothing at all about dogs, but I think they may have made a mistake. Not to sound like anyone from the past, but I think the girls are close and alive! and with WS TOS, I cannot say any more. Just in MOO.
