    how scary! why are we just now hearing about this????????

    I am a military wife and have been stationed with mister nurse overseas several times to add up to almost 10 years of our military career... it just makes no sense that she has been missing a month and we are just now hearing about this!

    I hope she is found soon!

    Just a few more things that i was thinking of. The some islanders are infatuated with blonde hair and blue eyes. I know this because my children were blonde and they would always rub their heads when we went off base. I also had one that went to daycare and he was treated like a king. I have been out and my friends little boy was spit on because some do not like americans. Also ur car has a Big Y on the tag meaning that u are a yankee. moo

    I am not sure about Japan, but in Germany and Europe the military has done away with the "military plates" per se... as they pretty much make you a moving target :eek: so now the plates actually resemble european plates... that being said, the first few letters on a european plate are letters for the town your car is from.. so the letters the military uses pretty much still give you away.. but it is better than the old version imhoo....

    A couple red flags make it sound very hopeful she's left on her own.

    She doesn't smile in her pictures. In my experience following missing persons cases, I've noticed a correlation between people who are hiding unhappiness, and then they take off, and people who have that expression in pictures. Notice her early pic her mother is holding from a long time ago - she's smiling. In the two recent ones, her expression is like she's checking for stray particles between her teeth. She looks depressed to me.

    Second, she's "never left for more than a couple hours to cool off". Who does that? I don't know anyone who's stable who does that - vanish for a couple hours in anger.

    So prayers that she's found alive and well.

    I wonder how long they've been in Japan?

    She had one tweet on twitter and it was dated feb of 2010. She does have a myspace but it's private so no use posting the link. Her twitter said she's ready to go home.

    That could mean anything, I"m ready to go home from the mall, I'm ready to go home from work----etc.

    I spread her facebook support page through my own facebook (I have one to keep in touch with family and friends we've made over the past 20 years as a military family) I asked everyone to help spread the word for her Mother.
