    That is probably it. There are a couple houses on the property and you can see a building with a reddish center to it. That is the brick courtyard in the middle of the barn. It was owned by a wealthy man who wanted to have a carriage museum there about 25-30 years ago. It has been a while since I have last been passed there, but for a long time in the near recent past it has not been very well maintained and it had been up for sale.

    Just looked at a map and the surroundings. There's an airport nearby. Does that mostly service small private aircraft, or commercial as well?

    That would be Smoketown Airport, which is small planes and helicopters.

    Home

    There is a larger airport in Lititz, which had some commercial flights, but to have options in commercial flights you would need to go to Harrisburg or Philadelphia.

    This case really pulls at my heartstrings for so many reasons. I suspect the outcome won't be great.

    After days of extensive searching by trained professionals coming up with nothing leads me to believe she didn't have some sort of medical event happen. Between the dogs and all the feet on the ground searching around the area she went missing, I believe they would have found her by now. I am not ruling it out completely but putting it to the bottom of my list. With the FBI becoming involved, I am hopeful they will find a lead somewhere.

    I do doubt this scenario...Because someone would know something about a suitor and a desire to leave and would tell, and because the local police called the FBI in.

    I’m still hoping but must admit each time I refresh this thread I’m awaiting the “found deceased“ and am profoundly sorry

    Terribly sad another day without answers.

    my heart is so sad for her family & community.

    I can’t help but think **if** she did leave on her own she still would have had to heavily rely on someone she likely barely knew, making her probably just as vulnerable & just as groomable.

    I feel like every possible scenario I think of doesn’t seem to end well.

    thinking of Linda & her family tonight, hoping they receive answers tomorrow.

    Heck, I haven't even got mine in the ground yet. Times (and planting zones) are different now.

    FBI assisting in search for Linda Stoltzfoos

    SABBM:

    The FBI is now assisting in the search for a missing Lancaster County woman, East Lampeter Township Police confirmed.

    Police are still considering all possibilities, including that Linda chose to leave without telling her family.

    “With this investigation so far, we don’t have any direct evidence to say this is foul play or direct evidence to say this was her leaving on her own free will,” said Lt. Matthew Hess, public information officer for East Lampeter Township Police.

    The long days of searching have been grueling, volunteers said, both from the physical effort of searching all day in the summer heat and from the emotional toll and frustration of not finding anything.
    ___________________________

    I was just about to come on the thread to note that I really don't know what to make of this case.

    I see I'm not the only one.

    Sounds like LE is scratching their heads right now, too.

    The complete lack of evidence may actually support a best-case scenario, i.e., that she's gone voluntarily missing, so in that sense, no news is good news.

    JMO.
