    Interesting info that I didn't get earlier when I posted this some time ago. Also her missing date is different. So was she missing Jan 27 or Feb 6??

    "Smallwood was driving a 2005 Chrysler Town and Country minivan with New Jersey plate WSJ-52H. The vehicle might have been spotted in Camden on Feb. 10."

    Last on-line article April 1 2014
    "Smallwood is a mother of three adult sons, the report said. Her family told ABC she has had some psychiatric problems in the past.
    Police have been searching since February and have come up empty handed, partially because there has been no credit card or bank activity since her disappearance, the report said."

    Is it possible she was car-jacked? Were there any robberies reported in the area near the dry cleaners right about the time she was sitting parked and waiting for her husband to come out?

    Did the dry cleaners and surrounding businesses have video cameras? Were they checked?

    Details of Disappearance
    Smallwood was last seen on January 27, 2014 at the Any Garment Cleaners, which is located at a strip mall the 500 block of Haddonfield Road in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Her husband went into the establishment while Smallwood waited outside in their vehicle, a silver 2005 Chrystler Town and Country van with the New Jersey license plate number WSJ-52H. By the time he came out, Smallwood and the van were gone. Her cellular phone pinged off a tower in the 700 block of Broad Street in Clayton, New Jersey at 10:22 p.m.; this was the last sign of her. Since her disappearance she hasn't used her credit or debit cards, but her vehicle may have been sighted in Camden, New Jersey on February 10.

    Smallwood left behind three adult sons. She previously worked at the Philadelphia International Airport, but she was out on disability at the time of her disappearance. One of Smallwood's sons stated she was "acting funny" and seemed "confused" before her disappearance. Although foul play is not suspected in her case, it remains unsolved.

    I googled the area and it's not too far away from the NJ/PA state ine. She could be anywhere if I'm going to be honest.

    I don't know if she was carjacked though. There is a Pizza Hut, Starbucks and Jersey Mikes at that Strip Mall that Any Garment Cleaners is located. And let's be real, all of those, especially Starbucks, are big chains and most likely people would have been getting coffee, sandwiches or pizza at the time that Vanessa and her husband were getting clothes cleaned.

    Is it possible she might have had a breakdown or something and just drove off? But then eventually died on accident or something. This case is confusing.
