    Are there ring cameras in her neighborhood and security cameras at the beach parking where her car was found?
    FlipFlops at water edge sounds like a swim in her clothes but empty pill bottle? Sounds strange.

    Did she knock herself out with medication and fall asleep on the beach to be washed out to sea? That's what it kind of sounds like.

    This sounds like possibly self-harm. I hope not but right now it can’t be ruled out. FWIW

    I agree IF there’s anything showing her leaving the home that morning.

    If this was suicide it was simple, clean & done but is there proof that she left the house the morning of July 1 and that she was the person that parked her car at the beach?

    Search continues. A SAR group from Maryland called We Are Their Voices is reported to have been helping for about a week.

    Sadly, I agree. It sounds like self harm. Prayers for this family.

    On July 1, Oritz left her husband a note that she was going to walk on the beach.
    Her vehicle was found in beach parking but she has not been seen since she left her home.
    On July 2, police got a tip that an empty pill bottle and flip flops belonging to the missing woman had been found near the high-tide mark the morning she went missing.

    More info from WeAreTheirVoices SAR search for Theresa, including pics. Pics give a great view of the area/terrain where she went missing.

    Note : The link states missing man nj, but takes you to Theresa's case.

    An article I hadn't seen with a very sad interview with Theresa's husband. IMO, reading this, she had some very serious medical condition(s). Maybe it just became too much to deal with. :(
