    Church clothes are often a little different. It varies from place to place, but often the covering and apron with be a different color on Sunday, or some little difference.

    Do we know if her church dress was found at home ?
    Sorry if I’ve missed it but I haven’t seen a concrete decision as to whether they believe she made it home from church and went back out to youth group or not.
    Wasn’t there early talk that the bars were still in the refrigerator?
    I assume that indicates she didn’t make it home?

    I probably should have called it a "Barn Party" and yes, there are not too common, but enough so that the police have to go bust them up once in a while. Makes the Bishops a bit unhappy.

    I don’t think that they have released anything really. At least nothing I could find.

    I’d like to know:
    1) she was seen last at stumptown & beechdale...but by who?
    2) what direction was she coming from when she was heading home to beechdale? Would she have had to make a left or right onto beechdale?
    3) do they suspect she made it home & disappeared from there?
    4) how long was her walk from the home in which church was held to her home?
    5) was she walking or was she on a scooter?

    so many questions....all in which i know they are holding close for a reason. But it’s tough when a case like this has no press conferences. It makes people go crazy with speculation.

    The search area is not all that big, rural and almost no trees. It's all farmland. Good application for a SAR Drone with thermal imaging.

    Interesting thought dally_doodle. I had not thought about her having a kick scooter.

    Because of the heat? Maybe she was sweating and wanted fresh clothes on.

    MOO

    Thank you! I guess hearing about the phones had me questioning it. I live in rural upstate NY in the Finger Lakes. We have strong communities of Amish and Mennonite. The garb definitely had me thinking Amish, but the talk of phones threw me. :)

    Hut parties have been around long before Amish Mafia was a TV show. These parties are usually held in barns or fields, and they can get pretty wild. Drinking, drugs, sex, etc. just like many English teen parties. Do most Amish teens participate? Not necessarily. Do some? Yes!

    We tend to romanticize the Amish world, when in many cases it is similar to ours. Amish do socialize outside the Amish community.

    I have to admit this case has me scurrying to Google search to learn about their culture. It is fascinating, but this story is totally tragic! It's very frightening that they will now only allow professional searchers. I worried that now they are looking for a body. She's so young. I hope they're wrong and she is just being a rebellious teen for the first time in her life.

    Sadly, this has been happening for many years . I lived in Lancaster 30 years ago and it was happening back then. Idiots.

    My son lives in the rural part of Lancaster with Amish all around. I'm about 15-20 min away and am frequently in the area. Probably where I will retire to.

    Tracker, given your knowledge of both the area and S&R, given the scope and nature of the search efforts there since LS went missing, do you think it's safe to conclude that she did not suffer some type of medical event or have an accident on her way home and they just haven't found her yet?

    Also, do you think that if she was abducted by someone and, say, tossed into the trunk of a vehicle, LE would have found signs of a struggle in/around the road the next day when they began searching, or not necessarily?

    It was the middle of the day. If she was abducted on that road, that was hugely high risk behavior by the perp.

    I keep wondering if she was perhaps lured into a car with the offer of a quick lift home.

    JMO.

    speculation--maybe

    If you are familiar with the area it's a very unusual to park in the petting zoo parking lot when you have well lit shopping centers, motels and a walmart (that allows camping) less than 10 min away. It is odd behavior at best.
