@Taylorbgilbert I am glad you are here.
@Taylorbgilbert , Thank you for getting verified. Have you heard any updates from police?
@UnapologeticallyAspie , pardon me for hailing you. With Taylorbgilbert's description of her sister, I wondered if you had any insight for us?
jmho ymmv lrr
Thanks for thinking of me.
I’m not sure if I can give you insight in regards to her specifically, but for me when I was 22, I was probably had a mental/emotional age of 15-16 y/o. And at that age I, too, was leaning heavily upon my parents, although I lived on my own at her age. But even when I around her age, my neighbor, a woman about 20 years older than me, fully took advantage of me, BIG TIME, financially and in other ways that I’d rather not talk about.
I did not fully mature until I was in my mid-late 30s. As far as the manipulation goes, absofreakinglutely, at least for me! And that didn’t change until my 40s, and only after I met a “street smarts guy”(my husband). If it wasn’t for my husband I think that I would still be the naïve person that I once was. I mean to be honest I’m still naïve, or rather, I have a very hard time seeing people as “bad“. I have a few other autistic friends and they too are like me. And most autistic people, get taken advantage of, even as adults. MOO.
A LOT of us ASDers struggle with executive function/dysfunction, as well as ADHDers. And a part of that is ”poor planning”, amongst other things. MOO.
I hope that helps answer some of your questions.
Also, just as a side note, I’m young at heart. I will forever be this way. My husband says that I’m just a big kid, and he’s right. But in public I mask as much of my autism as possible, and look like a 40-something neurotypical (non-autistic) woman.
@Taylorbgilbert I am so glad you got verified so quickly so that we can try our best to help you. Thank you to the mods and admin for making that happen.
I wanted to follow up on the link for endangered missing. After looking closer at the endangered missing criteria I’m not sure if she would qualify, but only because it wasn’t requested within 72 hours possibly. It might be worth asking about.
Endangered Missing Persons Alert – Texas Center for the Missing
You might consider contacting Texas EquuSearch. They are based in Dickinson.
Report a Person Missing
Takes a village, y'know. Genealogy or Sunday School -- call me for those.
Brianna, call your family, please!

I wonder if the gf wanted to end the relationship or made one of the people she was cheating with believe that she did.
Could someone have showed up at Brianna's work saying there was an emergency at home to lure her away?
I tend to think no about the emergency. I feel like Brianna would have said something to a coworker, manager. Even a quick text to let someone know where she was going. Speculation only.
re: what the cameras might have picked up
Many cameras, even newer ones, aren't that good. They might show people moving in the parking lot but not be clear enough to identify faces or clothing. Just human-shaped shadows moving around. Especially at the end of their range.
thank you for your insight! Bri is exactly the same way. She is just younger at heart.
She has been manipulated by this SO for years. She uses Bri to take care of bills, the children, everything. She hasn’t been helpful with the investigation at all and I have a feeling she has a lot to hide.
No updates yet. Of course they took the weekend off for the holidays but urged us to continue to hound the news stations to keep it on air and to exhaust all of our options on social media and the internet.
What is your gut instinct telling you happened?
I am so sorry to hear this, but I am not surprised. I hope/imagine the investigators have taken notice of this as well. If not, please take notes and communicate that to them. You never know what might be helpful.
Please let us know what we can do for you and your family. ((((Hugs))))
That is heartbreaking! But I suspected as much with the dog and pony show with the media. Children should never be used like that. And the little one should have been completely shielded.
Welcome taylorgilbert. Hope you find answers soon.
@taylorgilbert where do you think we should look?
Thank you for being here. My heart is with you and your family during this distressing situation.
The post by @MimosaMornings, includes an excellent suggestion:
Also, has a search party been organized by either the law enforcement or the local community?
It would be ideal if the police would use a scent dog for tracking - beginning in the parking lot.
You could ask the investigators about this when you are next in touch with them to see what they say about taking a scent dog to the company's parking lot. Just an idea.
In the meantime I will send tweets out to reporters in that area to ask for updates. I'll also ask about search parties.
Stay strong and positive. We are all thinking of you and your sister.
One of mine has a disability. I don't see her leaving work to just "run away"- ever. She was always on time- as stated in the news. Seems like info and tapes are being held back imo.
