    I know that but we don't have a specific location so that's all I can add now. If you know of a more precise location, I'll add it.

    I couldn't agree more with this.

    We do not know because the police has not let us know yet.

    It is confusing because my condo is in a very suburban area vs ie downtown where there are tons of cameras. I wish they would be more specific with that.

    I don't know. I'm not sure they have released that yet.

    This is just a totally random question but do landscaping companies work mon-fri, 9-5 type hours? And would they generally have holidays off?

    I think someone above stated he doesn't work for landscaping anymore, now he breeds cattle.

    Forgive me if this has been covered:

    1. Does she have a Facebook find me page?

    2. We really need a VI here!

    I'm still on the fence on this one. One thing that gives me pause is that it's not just the family withholding the information about the text, the police have also not released it. If the text said she was going to harm herself, would the police go along with family wishes to keep that quiet? A lot of times the police releases that an individual may be a danger to themselves even if family would rather not have that being known. Perhaps the text was vague enough that even the police are unsure what it meant and they don't want public opinion muddying the waters at this point in the investigation. IDK. :thinking:

    I am not aware of a find me Facebook page but I did see a group on Facebook called What Happened to Laura Wallen. I believe you would have to request to join it.

    I think police will follow family wishes if they believe foul play has not occurred. I feel like the family is desperate to protect L's reputation, with the assumption she left and will return at some point. If they truly believed she had been kidnapped, etc...I would hope they would worry less about privacy and release whatever info might help find her. Jmo

    I agree, But what if you are at a friend's party holding a glass of wine and someone else posts it? That seems intrusive to me, but I am weird.
    Back in the old days, you'd have to take a picture, have it developed for days and get numerous prints in order to show/share with many people. Now it's a click.

    But it is only the female teachers who get judged, right? The male teacher who impregnates , hypothetically, a teacher or other female adult is free from judgment..

    Just wanted to say that if LW sent a text about her dog, I would be very surprised if she didn't also mention contacting the school for a sub. The kind of teacher she was, I would think her identity would be wrapped up in her job.

    I have settings so I have to approve when someone tags me in a photo. It can show on their feed, but my name and page will not be attached to the photo until I have approved it.

    I struggle to agree that they feel she left and will return at some point mainly due to what her father stated at the press conference.

    He said, " We miss her, we love her, and its one of the hardest things a father can do is have a child taken away, way, way too soon. All we want is her to come back to us. Laura if you're out there listening, pick up the phone. Whoever may be out there helping or hiding her, please come forward and make it happen."

    Link to reference quote. https://www.washingtonpost.com/loca...478688d23b4_story.html?utm_term=.1ff9548352e7

    IMO, that doesn't sound like the words of someone who thinks she left willingly and will return. The $25,000 reward is also odd for someone who left on their own accord. I also recall the text message she sent being disturbing, so much so, that Laura's father called the school on Tuesday to see if she showed up.

    JMO but all those factors do not add up to someone willingly walking off.
