I can't be a VI. But read between the lines in my previous post and your next questions might be answered.
I had asked about the clothes. I would expect that had Ashley been seen by people and her father has said she was seen on surveillance video at the post office so we should know if she was wearing the same clothes that she was supposedly wearing when she went for a run.
If she wasn't wearing the same clothes on video then either the post office visit was actually on May 17th (or prior) or Ashley had to change clothes at some point. And if she had changed clothes then I would question the story of Ashley not returning to her apartment or the part of the story of what she had taken with her.
Such a situation would point to the roommate needing to be interviewed again or that Ashley had clothes elsewhere besides her apartment and had actually stayed at that location and whoever knows that hasn't offered that up and if I were RCPD I would want to know who that is and why they hadn't spoken up.
Maybe, in my opinion, the roommate was not at home on the 17th and Ashley stayed in her apartment alone.
Clothes on the 18th?? It was hot here that week so jogging clothes and "to stay cool clothes"????
Does the entrance area of the Community Center still look like this?
There are parking numbers out front of the "ramp". But, yes.
Auto correct? Bumpers not numbers.
Is this community Center in Junction City?
There is a community center in Ogden. The Post Office is up the street and around the corner about 1/10 of a mile or a little over 500 to 600 feet away.
No it's in Ogden, it has a little library, meeting room, and I think a pool or ping pong table inside, and then there's a playground and pool outside.
Pretty much everything in Ogden is within walking distance. So all the places she was said to be at before she went missing, the post office, community center and bar are all on the same street.
Is it known where her apartment was located?
You may not be a VI but you are a local and can answer questions about the town and area, I think just not questions about Ashley or her disappearance.

Please note that only the owners and administration are privy to members who are on the verified list. Generally only one administrator works on the verifications, but other administrators may be asked to help if the need warrants.
If you have not known the family or friends prior to the incident, you most likely will not need to be verified. There are certain instances where this becomes necessary like in the case where a private investigator is hired and wants to post as an insider. Websleuths does not condone our members getting involved in crime cases unless there is something the member can do that will make a difference. Please contact law enforcement with any tips.
When you send in your information, please scan your license and attach to your email at the same time. That will expedite the process.
We no longer verify locals. It became way too time consuming and we didn't feel it was necessary. However, if a moderator deems that a poster seems to be more of an insider than a local, we will ask that you become verified before posting information that is not in the mainstream media. Otherwise, you are free to post about your area and what you've observed."
See, I can't be a VI. I know some of the players, but as "town folks". Meaning that I have seen them around town, the Community Center and the few businesses.
When I post about my observations, someone gets silly and takes my post down.
Is there active searches still taking place? Just seems like things are settling down and getting quite. And we all know if AM face doesn’t stay active and in the public’s eye then it slowly becomes another unsolved cold case.
Yes, there was one last weekend. I got permission tonight to search a plot on private property on the river, but the land owner has been mushroom hunting it lately. So, the search that will be conducted tomorrow will probably be a waste to of time. But it will be searched and crossed off the map. I will have to let the unofficial search coordinator know when I am done. The land owner only gave me permission to search. Most of the plot is really overgrown and way off the beaten path.
I have been thinking about this also. Nobody knows where AM stayed on the 17th because she went to her apartment by herself? Did AM leave the bar before her temporary roommate, alone? Could her temporary roommate stayed somewhere else?
Has it been verified that she went to her apartment? Is it possible she didn't go to her apartment after leaving the bar?
Obviously you're all looking for a deceased AM. Any possibility she is alive and hiding out somewhere? Manhattan maybe? Is the general feeling suicide, homocide or missing because she wants to be missing?
Voluntary missing and/or homicide, maybe one the consequence of the other (opportunity for a perp).
RBBM for focus
Thank you, @Ogden Resident, for your input and continuing effort to find Ashley. I cannot believe she has been missing for almost a month. In the meantime, LE really hasn’t shared much with the public. I am extremely worried about her.
From the most recent article on the case that I can find:
“RCPD Lieutenant Erin Freidline with the Investigations Division, has been working on a timeline to narrow down where she might be.
‘The last known contact with her was around the 17th, so we’re trying to focus on that time frame and go backwards from there and see who she was in contact with the week prior and then trying to move forward and keep continuing to check any leads,’ Freidline said.
RCPD has received several tips that people last saw her at the Ogden Community Center and Post Office on Friday May 18th but no other sightings.“ (BBM)
The search for Ashley Meiss continues
It’s starting to look more and more likely that there was a concerted effort by a group of people to make it appear as though Ashley was at the bar on Friday, when in fact she was there on Thursday, IMO.
I find it particularly interesting, @Ogden Resident, that you ask “Did AM leave the bar before her temporary roommate, alone?” Is it safe to assume, then, her temporary roommate was also at the bar on Thursday, May 17?
My understanding has been that the roommate stated Ashley told her early Thursday evening she was going for a jog, and that was the last time she saw her. Is Ice House a big place? I ask this because if not, and if the roommate was at the bar later that evening, it seems likely that she would have seen Ashley there.
If that was the case, and the roommate withheld that information intentionally, it makes me wonder what else she could be lying about, including whether Ashley returned to her apartment at any point after Thursday evening.
And what would be the reason for someone (or likely at least two people, IMO) to lie and say to LE and/or Ashley’s family she was there on Friday instead of Thursday?
