She also has a cousin she is close to who has reached out to the news media several times. The links are here in this thread. Her daughter, who lives in the same area as Echo and who was a new mom at the time of her mom's disappearance, has done a very good job of publicizing her mother's case. Daughter's younger brother also lives in the area. The daughter has been cautioned by local LE to not discuss further details of the case. There's no evidence I've seen to indicate Echo cut off contact with any of her family. Two of her children lived in the area and she visited with them regularly. She was in the midst of ending her marriage, but she and her husband were on good terms. It doesnt sound like she was involved in a romantic relationship with anyone else. She had a cousin she was close to. My impression was that Echo liked living in the country, near the lake. That's why she moved to that area. Its near two well known resort areas that are very popular for fishing and boating.
