I'm living up to my name too well these days; this case is really confusing me. Could someone please tell me which of the "facts" I think I know are actually wrong? What I remember reading is: she ran out of the gym at about 10:45, and neither teacher could follow her because it would mean leaving other children unsupervised; the women dropping a child off saw her by the cattle guard at ~11:00 and informed staff; staff couldn't catch her and saw her run into the hills; when the woman came out from telling them SD was out there, she was gone; she drove up and down the road and saw no sign of her. Probably other things I'm forgetting. The only way I can make all of the reports work together is if: SD ran out of the gym and the staff member she was with called another staff member and said what happened. That person saw SD go out the door, but couldn't get to her fast enough; SD ran and ended up going into the hills. The staff went inside to get dressed for the weather and inform others what was happening, and during that time SD came back as far as the cattle guard, which was about the time the women came to drop off the other child. SD saw her go in and assumed someone would be coming out after her shortly so she ran again. There I hit a snag. Would she have gone back into the hills, somewhere on the property or down one of the roads? Going down the road makes the most sense to me since I'm sure they would have found her by now if she was on the property and I don't think she would have made great time going into the hills a second time. No matter how I look at it, it feels like somebody picking her up is the most likely option. Unfortunately, if it were someone wanting to help her, I'm sure someone would have been told where she is by now. Back to my original question, have any of the things I remember been proven wrong? If she had left and come back, could she have left again and still been far enough away not to be seen by them searching for her? TIA for any clarification.
