    I agree. I just posted similar concerns on wondering why this guy is a POI. I’m guessing....and hoping....and expecting...there to be more to to their suspicions.

    In my experience following many cases here - the release of this video is a precursor - IMO - they have more and it's not good. I just wonder if they have her on any video from Saturday on?

    I am really confused about this too. Maybe I missed it, but from the articles I haven't seen reference to Raelynn ever being at that library, and it sounds like the POI video was from Monday, which (unless it means the previous Monday, the article is unclear on this) is AFTER she disappeared.

    This is a YouTube link to a news report that shows the POI exiting the Library. The original link on this thread seems to be a FB link, which doesn't offer the same helpful playback options and settings.

    DON'T FORGET. . . If you click the settings link (looks like a gear) on the bottom of the YT video, you can control video speed. (from 1/4 speed to 2x speed)

    Also, you can move forward/backward ONE frame at a time by using the ", ." (comma/period) keys on your computer's keyboard.

    I've made this link to jump right to the Library POI section of the video. You can do this with any YT video by the way, which is a great help/time saver if you want any video link to take the viewer to an exact spot in the video.

    ETA, apparently the "copy video url at current time isn't working for this video. But, the library POI section starts at 34 seconds)

    I'm thinking the computers with internet access took him there.

    On the Ossian Branch library website, there is a Virtual Escape Room/Scavenger Hunt offered for teens. To play, teens need to pick up a To-Go kit from the library and then use items from the kit as they go online to play (either alone or with others). The To-Go kit is offered Oct 19 through Oct 31.

    this is why I'm curious if she was spotted on video around there between Sat/Mon - and so they are looking for anyone who may also have been there ? They can't figure out who he is IMO so they need the public to help. If he is not involved, he will come forward IMO

    My 2 cents on several of the comments -
    The T-shirt also looks like Minions to me, but I can see the "Five nights at Freddys" which is a "jump scare" game that was giving younger kids nightmares (which is how I heard of it).

    I suspect they found communication to her devices from the Library's IP address and when reviewing the footage, this was someone who could not be ID'ed and perhaps a librarian recalled them using the PCs.

    I hope she is found quickly and unharmed.

    Exactly my thinking! Something he sent or accessed from there of interest maybe!

    The missing flyer says she was last seen on Center St in Huntington. This appears to be a dead end, residential street. It could even be the street where she lives.

    The library is at 255 West Park Dr and is about a mile from Center St. If she was talking to this person of interest online, they may have tracked their interaction to a library computer's IP address?

    Libraries generally record quite a bit of information about you if you're going to use a computer there. That's possibly how they zeroed in on him as a POI.

    Where did 255 West Park Drive come from? The sign on the wall in the video says it's the Ossian branch of the Wells County Public Library, which looks to be 18 miles from Huntington.

    But your point is taken on the library info, for sure.

    In the UK and I would think the US is similar we have to register with some official ID to become a member of the library, if you take a book out you use your card that has been validated and also if you use the computer, you give them your card and you can 'book' the computer for 1 hr. I have been to my local library 2 weeks ago and it was eerily quiet due to COVID, place was empty so I would imagine similar in US - staff would notice everything!

    His shoes are brand new ultra lite sneakers, either nike or reebok they look very similar. to shoes we have here at the house, they appear to be brand new and his hoody looks very new. just observations. Also another male in a navy blue jacket and relatively clean blue jeans ( freshly laundered ) mOO.

    I think LE is way ahead of any of us on this case and have linked her phone/social media communication to a computer in this library at the same time this poi was there using a computer. IMO of course

    Good point! Maybe she never was in the library and a witness saw someone Raelynn with someone in the vicinity of the library. Maybe after going through CCTV footage in the area, the witness or witnesses recognized this guy from footage. I suppose I will go on Google Maps and see what else is in the immediate area.

    I went back ran over the footage over and over, full screen and slower. I realized I can't see the guy's right hand - arm underneath the hoodie and not in the sleeve, hoodie sleeves too long for him? If this happened on Saturday, the sign on the door states the Saturday hours are 9AM to Noon, so that narrows down the time frame somewhat.

    I'm guessing he was/is aware of not leaving palm and fingerprints.
