I hadn’t thought of this, but this is a great point! We give our old phones to nieces/nephews who use it for just that. I wonder if it was a similar situation: someone’s old phone, money is tight, can’t afford activation right now. Do we know if her ex was in the area at time of disappearance or if he was in KY? I saw him on the tv interview w her mom, so it looks like he’s there now. Not sure if he followed her from KY when she moved into mom’s or if he’s only there due to the fact that she’s missing/comforting daughter?
