    The other thing I find strange was that his posts are more about dealing stress or doing his own thing, then I found the posts on the cryptocurrency on a different site. At one point he's completely broke back in 2016, I believe, and had to go interview for jobs "for the first time in 7 years." Yes, you can find a long post about this on his tumblr. He then mentions that he's borrowed money from his family to the point where he felt it's too much and his cards are overdrawn, etc. But he also posts that he knows just the right amount of money he needs to keep his car and the house.

    He also posted that on one of his big trips he was broke when he started out. I went through almost all of his tumblr posts last night so I can't be certain, but i believe it was one with his daughter.

    The DA stated that she is being held against her will and prevented from communicating with the outside world.

    That’s what I was commenting on.

    That’s more than just custodial interference.

    I wonder how her bible was found? Who was digging in the trash and why? And how did they connect the bible with her? Sort of odd.

    I don't know, that part doesn't make sense either.




    To add to all of this weird stuff:

    Any fool could figure out that he's been using I-40 as it's the simplest way to get from Tennessee to the west. I read one of his posts about being in Amarillo, TX and Albuquerque, NM.... then strange that he's now being reported at Santa Fe, then seen in Colorado Springs, which means he used I-25 north? I mean come on, the reports show he's using major highways.

    Speculation time: maybe he goes through Salt Lake City, then Paradise, CA where his family lived, then north to see his sister in Auburn, WA then what... northern Idaho for his brother's land?

    DA: Daphne Westbrook being drugged by father after kidnapping over custody ruling | WKRN News 2
    The Hamilton County District Attorney’s Office says new information has led to the indictment of John Westbrook and Amber Alert for Daphne Westbrook.

    Because of COVID-19 suspending the grand jury things were delayed in this case. But District Attorney General Neal Pinkston said investigators have not stopped searching for the 17-year-old.

    “Our investigation has revealed that she is presently expressing some suicidal ideations. And she has not just presently but she has a past history of that as well,” Pinkston said.

    [...]

    “She has this odd affection to him now because prior to her leaving he would give her alcohol, marijuana, LSD, mushrooms. And he’s now, we know from recent witness interviews, that she’s constantly drugged and/or drinking alcohol provided by him,” Pinkston said.

    Pinkston said Westbrook kidnapped his teenage daughter after a custody agreement ruled he could only have Daphne every other weekend.

    “Well in order to avoid that and avoid paying child support he just leaves with her,” Pinkston said.

    They could, however, be anywhere. And in recent weeks, evidence uncovered during the investigation into John Westbrook has led authorities to become increasingly concerned for Daphne’s wellbeing. (6/9) #TNAMBERAler

    We’re issuing our AMBER Alert now, because a warrant has been issued for a qualifying crime in Tennessee, and in hopes that – should evidence place her and John in another state – that state will be able to issue an AMBER Alert faster. (7/9) #TNAMBERAlert

    FEB 23, 2021 Indictment: WestbrookTrueBill.pdf (auburnexaminer.com)

    The document is linked in this article dated MAR 4, 2021:
    Missing Tennessee Child may be in Auburn Area | Auburn Examiner

    Also from the article:

    [...]

    We’ve recently learned he spent the first few weeks of this year in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Three weeks ago, he moved to the Colorado Springs, Colorado, area. Due to publicity in the Denver media market we believe Westbrook will try to seek shelter with a family member — most likely his sister, KWM. We also believe he may have made attempts to alter his appearance and Daphne’s, including using hair dye and false teeth.

    KWM lives in Auburn, WA, and works at Auburn Adventist Academy. We know KWM is in frequent contact with her brother but she refuses to cooperate with our investigation and has repeatedly avoided interview requests by the U.S. Marshals Service.

    Daphne is increasingly at serious risk of physical and emotional danger and we need your help to find her.

    This article has been updated:

    The FBI is planning to interview Westbrook's sister in the coming days. They say there have been no confirmed sightings of Daphne or John Westbrook in Florida.

    Also:

    Editor's note: An earlier version of this story stated that there had been a confirmed sighting of the pair in Florida. This version has been updated.

    Perhaps the photo below (also from the article) is related to an unconfirmed sighting there?
