    An interesting question by John came up at about 29:15. In one of the news links, it says that Jessica's BF called his son to come get him when he got out of the river. Is it possible his son is the person who was holding Jessica's phone that day, and the person who helped them launch the boat? If not, why did her BF call his son, and not the other person who was holding Jessica's phone?

    "Although Stacks owned a cell phone, she did not have it with her. The sheriff said the plan had been to leave her phone with the person who helped them put the boat in. They took Baggett’s phone with them, in order to call her phone when they decided to get out of the river. That person would then come and get them."

    Well, in January, the sheriff said (see earlier link):
    “We are spending hours going and talking to people, finding out, ‘what I said, I heard so and so say that’ and then they heard so and so say that, it just snowballs and gets bigger and more added to it and they say, ‘no I didn’t say that’ takes hours to chase all that down,” Edwards said.
    Edwards says there is no sign of foul play, but he promises to continue to search and follow all credible leads.

    Some might interpret that to mean: "I'm sick of working this case and my butt is sore from riding my ATV up and down the river, so unless you have a videotaped confession, don't bother calling in your tips".
    That's not how I interpret it, but I'd hate to think that the more shy citizens might be tempted to sit on potentially valuable ℹ️information rather than calling LE.

    I was hoping that'd we'd see some developments here as the seasons change, people spend more time on the river and the water level ebbed and flowed. She's gotta be somewhere.

    Do we know if she was actually on the boat?

    We've been told that. But I'm not sure it's true.

    I, personally, do not believe that she was EVER in that boat. But, that is my opinion only; not based on any factual info.

    There seems to be a growing trend, in other cases, where "no body" is not a bar to prosecution. Purely circumstantial evidence is enough to indict a prime suspect. The pendulum is swinging that way, at least in some jurisdictions.
