    Bumping up for Tara and her family.
    Is it confirmed she actually went missing from Chicago? I wonder why she travelled there and what the likely scenario is.

    She looks like such a fun, kind person. I hope she is somewhere safe.

    Hardly any coverage out there. A college athlete missing and all we get is a vague paragraph surrounding her disappearance.

    I wonder if the E stands for Elliott, as a Elliott Smart is a alias. Also North Dakota state university is linked 2016-2020.

    Can you cite where you see 2020? The most recent thing on her is from 2017. If her school profile says 2020 it likely indicates she's not missing and they forgot to remove her off the list.

    All her profiles stop at 2017:
    Tara Smart - 2017 - Women's Track and Field - NDSU
    TFRRS | Tara Smart - Track and Field Results & Statistics

    I've tried searching everywhere including teammates, and it doesn't appear she has any social media accounts which sounds absurd for someone her age. Does it link you any social media profiles of hers? If it does try checking the date of her latest activity. With little to no information/updates I'm inclined to think she's been found safe and they forgot to remove her from being listed as "missing". It's happened before.

    NDSU twitter and facebook has no mentions of her being reported as missing. I've came across what I believe to be relatives facebook accounts and they to have 0 mentions regarding her as a missing person. She doesn't appear as a listed person on the St. Louis missing person's list nor the Missouri MP list.

    Well that is promising. But does anyone feel up to the task of contacting the investigating agency in charge of her case to find out? Since her NamUs page is still up...
