    Holly Grim went missing on Friday, 11/22/13.

    In addition to what is noted in the article:
    Holly took her son to the bus that morning.
    Her mother arrived at her home shortly afterwards to pick her up for work.
    Holly was not there. There were signs of a struggle. Her purse and glasses were there. The back door was slightly ajar.

    Holly has not been seen since.
    Her family and friends are frantic.
    Holly is a single mother, and her child is now in the care of her grandmother.
    Police have since that morning been doing a diligent investigation, including interviews.
    They have asked for any help, even to let them know if anyone hears any rumors, no matter how meaningless the tip might seem.

    If anyone has any information to contribute, it would be a huge help.

    I truly hope (and imagine they will) that LE watches closely the people who attend the vigil...

    Perps have been known to insinuate themselves into the events surrounding the missing persons...

    I just viewed the relatively newer pics (posted towards the end of the last thread #1) of Holly's home....

    I was interested in the shed that is at the side of the house...

    The shed brought some questions to my mind...(as I believe it has to other WSers, too)...

    Could someone have hidden in the shed? (maybe a place to hide for a stalker, etc.)

    Could there be (or have been) something of interest to a perp in that shed?

    Just some thoughts...

    A few more questions/ideas regarding the shed...

    Are there secure locks on each shed found in the trailer home tract?

    (The following question was asked by a WSer towards the end of the last thread...):
    Does LE have the "power" to search each shed?

    The sheds look large enough to hide a body and/or evidence.... And the perp may have used/planted evidence in someone else's shed without the owner's knowledge....

    I am not hearing much with this case. I will contact the volunteer search team leader and see if they have planned anything.

    I was not able to be at the vigil as I was flying back from Montreal Canada at the time.

    This is a somewhat frustrating case as there is not a lot of physical evidence and what PSP has, they understandably wish to keep close to the vest.

    I REALLY thought something would have happened in Holly's case by now.

    There is just astonishingly so little movement it seems.

    And almost as odd, it seems like there's not much conversation about it either, as surely by now we'd have heard leaks about speculation or something... THAT seems very peculiar to me given it's a town of under 6000, and small enough to only have one HS.

    I feel so badly for her son.

    It seems like it'd have to be far worse at this point to not just have any idea of where his mom is, let alone if he'll ever see her again.

    Not that it matters much, but it's really not that small an area that she lives in and her actual location is kind of secluded from other residential areas. She lives off a heavily travelled highway but is surrounded by mainly business and shopping centers. It may be hard to visualize without looking at a map, but aside from her actual trailer park neighbors, she borders a junkyard and then it's banks, fast food, walmart ect. So I don't find it too puzzling that there hasn't been much talk. Her "community" is rather small and I doubt those in the nearby area are even too familiar of her situation.

    Holly's case has been well publicized in the area. The vigil was well covered and a member of PSP did make a speech.

    Nothing new has come forth at this time.

    PSP is very engaged in the case. From what I am seeing, they are at least approving of the volunteer search operations. I have contacted the team leader to see if PSP will give an official request to Jersey K9 and Greater Philadelphia Search and Rescue for organized grid and K9 searches.

    PSP has no information that Holly is in or around any of the surrounding towns or counties.

    The volunteer team has a Public Relations Officer (ICS) who is doing a good job of getting the word out and engaging media.

    Leads still coming in. Nothing concrete yet.

    Search team checked out the junkyard and some other spots. Waiting for the results.

    Is this recently that the search team checked out the junkyard and some other spots? Have they checked them multiple times?

    The junk yard was searched by PSP. The search team was authorized by PSP and the yard owners to perform a second search.

    This case is a real head-scratcher. There must be more to the story than what has officially been released. It's hard to believe that Holly vanished into thin air in such a short amount of time without careful planning by the perp. No clues of significant value left behind. But she was clearly targeted. Any other similar crimes in the area? It does appear to be isolated.

    This is as mysterious as Susan Jacobson's disappearance in Roseville, CA over a year ago. Very frustrating.
