    She's been missing over two weeks and she just now made the news? I guess the media cant cover everyone all the time, but wow. There's another missing woman, Emily Grace, who's been gone even longer - since Aug 1st and today was the first I'd heard of her too tho

    I am just surprised there has been no media coverage of this.

    I saw a short blurb, but the person (was it mom?) giving the information (or either it was the edit monkeys) made it sort of sound as tho she got angry about something (a plan for the family to move some place?) and stormed off.

    That account sounds kind of troubling to me in that just bc someone becomes angry and leaves abruptly doesnt mean they intended to make themselves disappear.

    DIAZ: I`m Carlos Diaz in for Jane Velez-Mitchell.

    In tonight`s "Spotlight," a mother`s frantic search for her daughter who has been missing for nearly a month. Twenty-four-year-old Candiace Terry went missing August 6. Her mom says she left home angry after getting the news the family was moving to California.

    Texas organized a search on August 17 but did not find anything. There have been two possible sightings.

    Candiace`s mom has put up flyers, searched shelters and neighborhood parks. Now she`s worried something terrible has happened to her daughter. Let`s help find this young woman.

    Straight out to my special guest, Candiace`s mother Connie Davis. We`re also joined by Mike Brooks, HLN law enforcement official.

    Now Connie, thanks so much for joining us. We are so sorry to hear what you`re going through. Houston police told us they`ve had two possible sightings of Candiace on August 17 and August 26. Do these sightings somehow give you more hope?

    CONNIE DAVIS, MOTHER: Yes. Yes.

    DIAZ: Now, what -- what are your thoughts right now? Do you -- do you think that your daughter is some place other than Houston, some place other than the Texas area? Or do you think that possibly she`s gone with some friends someplace?

    DAVIS: I`m not sure where she is. I didn`t hear anything about the sightings that the police are talking about. No one told me. I know of one. That was on August 6.

    DIAZ: You seem very distraught and, of course, you should be. Describe your emotional state over the last month.

    DAVIS: Helpless. You know, it`s horrible when your daughter goes missing or your child. So, yes, I just need help finding her and safely.

    DIAZ: Before we bring Mike Brooks in, I want to ask you, how would you describe your relationship with your 24-year-old daughter Candiace?

    DAVIS: We have a good relationship.

    DIAZ: Because, you know, she -- you announced that the family was moving to California. That`s when there were problems. Why did she not want to move to California?

    DAVIS: Well, she was comfortable here. And we -- it was just a discussion. It wasn`t set in stone. It was just a discussion. And -- and then she went for a walk, and I haven`t seen her. So...

    BROOKS: Connie, did she take her cell phone with her when she left or any other personal belongings? Maybe a bank card at all to possibly trace if there has been any activity on that, on either the cell phone or possibly a bank card?

    DAVIS: No.

    BROOKS: What about any friends and associates that are in the area that she may have gone to see since she was a little bit upset about her moving? Has law enforcement said anything about that at all?

    DAVIS: We`ve talked to her friends, and no one`s seen her. I haven`t really talked to law enforcement that much. They`re difficult to get a hold of.

    JMO:
    I watched this segment and the mom seemed to be .. uh.. searching for words.. or giving one word answers.

    I give her the benefit of the doubt as her daughter has been missing for three weeks and she is on a national tv news show.
    And perhaps she has been taking medication to help deal with any anxiousness because her daughter is missing.

    But,

    I thought she would be more pro active, have something prepared to say, maybe a plea to her daughter, call home, call the police, let us know you are okay..
    but.... she seemed very subdued.

    It makes no sense to me either that Candice would take off because her parents were thinking of moving. :waitasec: Candice is 24 years old and should be able to maintain her own life as an adult if her parents decide to move away.

    Also the lack of media coverage YET TES was doing a search. :waitasec:

    Yes, I mean it's not like she's 13 and has to go where the family moves. Exactly. Unless she was steamed at the thought of her staying and the family moving, but still.... something seems odd about that part. Some folks get angry about whatever and step out for air or leave the room, building, home, etc go for a drive to think but.. IDK what I'm trying to say. IDK.

    Candiace Terry has been reported found on a FB page posting as of 15 hrs ago, this poster is also friends with the mother. Since i can't tell if the poster is a minor or not, i'll wait for some other confirmation. Maybe TES will post an update.

    Sad thing is... aside from JVM covering the story, there was no media coverage or stories to link regarding her missing. I'm wondering if anyone will even report her found. I keep checking the TES website but no updates there either.

    That was all that was posted. The post by TES was back-dated to yesterday when she was located.

    You want peculiar...I've got peculiar for you. :waitasec:

    What reason would there be for TES to remove that update from the site? I went to the homepage and started there after it wasn't on the link about her search...

    I can't find it anywhere on the site. This post is still the only one there and it just talks about the search. http://texasequusearch.org/2010/08/missing-candiace-terry-24-yrs-houston-tx-080610/

    In fact there isn't even a post from September at all.

    It still comes up in a regular google search...because it is in the cache but it's gone from the actual website. The cache is obviously the same post as the above link, with the update removed.

    You have to scroll down a bit as this is the main page:

    http://webcache.googleusercontent.c...rg/+"candiace+terry"&cd=2&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

    WTH is going on here??? If there was some privacy issue or something...Why would you remove the update, but not the whole thing? :waitasec:

    Unless she hadn't been returned safely.... :waitasec:

    Another interesting note. (Yes, this is bugging me.)

    The person who posted that Candiace HAD been found.... got a reply from Candiace's family (a maternal Aunt I believe) asking her to verify it. (I keep waiting for someone to say "Can you provide a link for that?")

    Her mother and a few others still have the missing poster as their icon.

    I can find no one else who has posted that she has been found, even if they posted about her being missing before.

    So we are now talking about 54 hours since it was posted that she was found.

    TES has removed the found update from their site but left the missing and search information there.

    There has been no news article to verify it.

    Her mother and other family members have not updated to say that she has been found. Either in posts or their icons. (Maybe someone else has more time to look through more of them.)

    I'm confused. Do the moderators know something we do not? I would love verification here. Maybe they called LE or Candiace's family or something?

    I'm confused.
