    Change of story:

    After talking to more people police now think she may have been missing since Thursday (January 25). Hedden’s birthday was Thursday and her roommate told investigators that she was going out to celebrate. Hedden borrowed her roommate’s truck Thursday night. The truck returned back to the house sometime late Thursday or early Friday but Hedden did not.

    Her family said her roommate is actually her fiancé.

    A lot of my friends are friends with her. My kids went to Gillespie school. We lived in the area from '95 to '10. So sad to see this and being so close to some I know.

    Many of her FB friends have posted her picture with her missing information. She is obviously well loved by friends and family. The only confusing bit as aside from the mention of children, two friends mentioned her "spouse", yet the media refers to "roommate. The vehicle returning but not her is troublesome. I'm from IL. Royal Lakes Crime stats for violent crime are almost double that of the national average, and much higher than Illinois as a whole (including Chicago). http://www.areavibes.com/royal+lakes-il/crime/ The average home price is $55,000 (average for the state is $199,000) and the average income per capita (all adults and children) is a little over $18,000 and unemployment is almost 6%. That can up the crime stats if you have low income and higher unemployment., https://www.bestplaces.net/economy/city/illinois/royal_lakes. On the positive side, it's a small town rural town with less than 200 people. Someone has to have seen or heard something.

    Royal lakes is also a town you blink and can miss it.
    Saying most homes are 55K is giving alot.

    couple of things. Where did she go to celebrate her Birthday? Did her roommate/fiance go as well? Does anything look out of sorts around the truck? Is the seat set at a position that she would have driven it? IMO

    Those crime "stats" are absolutely not accurate. This is a very small town in the middle of Macoupin County near where I live. Perhaps the proximity to East St. Louis has skewed those statistics.

    Her roommate is her fiance. Praying for a safe return.

    could her roommate/fiance be female? Not that it matters but I kinda assumed it was and others kinda assumed it to be a male. Of course, I don't read SM so y'all are probably more in the know than me.

    Regardless, it has been at least 5 days... not good at all. Come home, Ms. Aquarius!

    Major case squad involved in search for missing Macoupin County woman

    Macoupin County Sheriff Shawn Kahl has called in the Major Case Squad of Greater St. Louis to help in the search of a missing 37-year-old Royal Lake woman.

    Denita M. Hedden was reported missing Jan. 28 by her roommate. She lives in the 700 block of Catalpa Avenue in Royal Lake, a community of about 200 people in southwest Macoupin County, north of Bunker Hill.

    Kahl said Saturday that the major case squad will bring more detectives and more resources to the investigation. He added that due to the amount of time that has passed since Hedden was reported missing, the case has “become critical.”
