    Some people don't. Some people only watch it once in a while depending on their schedule. To some people the news is very important, and to others it's not.

    I have friends who make it a point not to watch the news, for various reasons.

    Other times people are just hesitant to call LE, but if LE goes there, and they're friendly, the person sees there's no reason to feel intimidated, and they speak up.

    That's why it's important that LE get out there and show around pictures and talk to people.

    I agree, if she was staying next door why use the bathroom at the store. Diaper change would have happened before checking out of the hotel.

    If the cousin found the clue and stopped at the store by chance then the PI must not be interested in looking for all the stops along the way to SA either. Town and Country (now known as Stripes in my town) is always right on the route when traveling through towns and are usually very busy and logical choice for a traveller to stop.

    We won't know Jay's strategy until he's done using it, lol.
    He also is likely still at the info gathering stage...he is coming in with a lot of catching up to do.

    What bothers me is that it seems like LE is waiting for the info to come to them, instead of actively going out and seeking it.

    I think it is credible, but not helpful, since it was before. I wonder if they have gone to the gas stations/stores along the way to Victoria? TS seemed adamant that she went to Victoria and then back to the SA bus station, yet LE seems to refute this. If they find him in the Victoria area, will TS say she told them that in the beginning? :waitasec:

    There are many reasons people don't watch the news.

    Too busy with their own life to watch/read news
    Work schedule interferes with watching TV news
    not interested in news
    watching news makes them fearful or depressed or angry
    depressed already, so not participating in life, world around them
    traveling and missed local news during that period

    I'm sure there are tons of other reasons. There are periods in nearly everyone's lives when we miss the News for days or weeks. That's why it's so important to keep Gabriel's picture posted everywhere, and keep his face and story in the media. Someone whe never watched the news may happen to catch it unintentionally, or see the poster at a convenience store, and it may trigger a memory.

    Maybe they did stop but spoke to a person who wasn't on duty at the time EJ stopped there. SA has not given the story much media time, few flyers in SA, etc. I think the witness's story is credible because of the details she gave about EJ and GJ.

    I'm not that confident that they(LE) really puts in the effort we think they do... and not sure the people with the information are comfortable talking to LE...only b/c most people doubt theirself and arent really sure enough to make the call but are more likely to tell a volunteer a hunch.

    Just so glad to hear there are more feet on the ground and a PI....:woohoo:

    also, i friends in austin, who had no idea who Gabriel was until I told them, thats only an hour from SA.

    Bear with me here, When I was 9 or 10, my mom was going to run with me and my sister(custody stuff) in the end, she did not. But the talks I remember hearing, are about which states are better to run to, they don't "get along" with TX, and won't enforce TX court papers, or something, and I'm wondering, if it can work like this during investigations? and even though it's a missing baby, TX is hesitant to put alot of man hours into this?? IDK, I would hate for that to be the case, being Texan and all:)

    It seems to me that Elizabeth's route was not investigated until now -- I am not sure why it has not - due to Tempe LE, SA LE, FBI? I think more will come out of Logan's road trip --

    Seems to me that we need posters in every convenience store, gas station, hotel, motel along I-10 and maybe that poster should include a picture of the car she was driving

    I mentioned this before but you would be surprised at how many people don't know who Gabriel is and haven't heard anything about this case. I live an hour away from San Antonio and my neighbors, friends- most of them had not heard of Gabriel. It's not on the local news, it's not on the main yahoo news page or main google news page and alot people don't watch CNN/HLN.

    I think it could be EJ & Gabriel, but it also seems possible this woman's memory was triggered by Logan's family handing out flyers there at the store. I also wonder how she could just now be so positive about it being EJ & Gabriel when she wouldn't really have been paying attention over a month ago? I'm sure there's a lot of traffic in and out of the store. MOO

    I thought we could use a thread to focus on the reported possible sightings. There are quite a few out there now. I could use some help getting this thread going. Please post links when possible for each sighting being discussed.

    ETA: I'm trying to provide a link for each reported sighting. But there may be several articles/video's for each one. Feel free to post additional links for these sightings but please specify that it's not a seperate sighting, just to avoid confusion. Thanks.

    Sorry, I'm trying to work on getting some links to media stories in this thread. I got sidetracked though. I'm working on it.

    Video and article about the Pizza Delivery guy from Papa John's.
    Pizza orders placed on Dec. 21st and 3 days later (so Dec. 24th?)

    VIDEO REPORT: Pizza Delivery Driver Offers Clues 1:54

    Article:

    Snip:
    “She was real skittish, she kept the door closed. I think she gave me a $5 or $6 tip. Really nice lady. I think that’s why I pretty much remember her,” said Morris.

    She may have soon slipped his mind if not for the flier posted in the restaurant. He produced a receipt to CBS 5 News from Dec. 21 with the name Elizabeth and her room No. 150.

    “She pretty much handed me the money and didn’t let me look in the room. Didn’t let me look or anything like that. I could tell something was wrong. She was real skittish acting,” said Morris.

    This article mentions both the surveillance video of EJ and Gabe at Six Flags and the sighting at a Subway.

    Snip: Subway
    “I have three kids and I couldn’t even imagine. Good luck to you, really good luck. I’ll be praying for you all night,” said one man at the Subway where Johnson was spotted.

    Snip: Six Flags
    Johnson and Gabriel were spotted on surveillance footage outside the Six Flags on Dec. 26, the same day she took the last known photos of Gabriel in the Homegate hotel room. That was also just two days after she posted two comments on her MySpace page stating, "Where there's a will, there's a way" and "Excited to start my new life."
