    Ps. One of the aspects that I love most about WS is our global community who bring and share their local cultures and norms. It's fascinating. Sending hugs round the world.

    I think it's more likely that a young offender would be less conspicuous in a strange town than a 300# white bearded man who was wearing suspenders and a straw hat. MOO

  4. Somebody remind me, did LE ask the local residents to search their land, outbuildings, etc., yesterday at the press conference? If not, that's an interesting omission.

    some cctv will be off on color, I don't understand it, but different fabric types can show different. I have seen blue show up red, sometimes same brand of camera on same system cant agree on a exact color. angle and the way light reflects effects it too.

    Could they have worn the dark glasses so they could look at bystanders without being noticed?

    I only noticed her boyfriend wearing sunglasses, but I did notice her mom appeared to be close to tears at the end, and she rushed off quickly. An yes, I do think that the general mood of the family is very telling. I fear they may be losing hope.

    RT and DJ perused the attendees of the previous presser, no sunglasses.

    If it's a black and white camera, as many if not most are, it's hard to tell bright pink/red from ordinary black. They both tend to become the same dark gray.

    Not if Mollie her self had been there recently, vacuuming her car. Or anyone of her family or friends.

    The “source” for that Radar article could have looked at almost any offender profile the FBI has done for that “info.” I tend to think it is retired LE at most, and not involved in this case.

    RT DJ and others firmly believe Mollie is alive- I am just wondering - do they think she is alive and being held in her town of Brooklyn or someplace in or outside of Iowa? Hope and prayers she is alive- I cannot get my head around this whole situation - my thoughts change at least twice daily about what I think could have happened - Mollie's Dad, bf and rest of her family are TRULY AMAZING people!!! I don't know how they cope-- Sooo strong!!!

    I can’t imagine they sent all hair from car wash for testing.

    They have been doing that all along, especially her dad.

    I don't think it would reveal anything definitive even if they did.

    I'm sorry, I think I missed something. Where did the 300 pound etc. guy come from? He sounds like a local farmer or something.

    I don't recall saying anything about strangers either.

    At this point, even if she's still alive, she's not likely to ever be the happy, always smiling girl they all knew and loved. I would think they've considered that more with each passing day. MOO
