    Well it sounds like y’all might have figured this one out. If she saw cops, ditched phone and ran that would explain the abrupt ending of communication with her dad. The two warrants would be the previous trouble in Utah her dad mentioned.

    Oh no ... something definitely going on here that we don’t yet know ... and may not find out. The warrants provide some possibilities but we’ll have to wait for the facts. So grateful that her son was quickly found safe. Things could have been so much worse for the little guy. Moo

    Just to fine tune that a bit ..

    TOS allows for sleuthing a victim (i.e. missing person) and an officially named perp. Background information on a victim can be sleuthed and respectfully discussed as part of victimology, but not used to disparage a victim or be judgmental toward them.

    I don’t understand why if Laura had access to a phone (burner?) for texting - she did not immediately text dad to pick up her son. Surely, even if fleeing due to warrants; possible charges for abandonment outweigh her alleged charges.

    Personal opinion here. She voluntarily went missing, for whatever reason. But the kid, phone, etc was to either save face for someone they loved (LR), or convince her to come home. Possibly both.

    Well now, that’s a different view. Interesting...

    It's strange I'm not one to speculate outside what is the usual answer. I just think this one is a slight variation on it somehow. I just can't figure out how. But I just hope those little ones are safe and are being loved. ❤️

    It still remains to be seen if what has been speculated was indeed what happened. If she fled because police were called to her car, then she probably knew that her son had already been found and was in good hands. That scenario alone could trigger a slide into any psychiatric and/or addiction issues that were present IMHO. After that it could have been one bad decision after another, until finally she did one right thing and reached out to her dad. It’s a sad situation all the way around. I think Tim Miller might know some if this, and was very distressed that this is the way it played out. Again, he would have given anything to have found his Laura alive in 1984.

    I woke up several times during the night thinking of this lovely man. I was so touched by the video. Pain from knowing his family tree is splintered forevermore. The broken branch of his Laura has almost broken him. I say almost. His spirit and his love for his daughter keeps him full of hope and tenacity. He is certainly not one to ever give up.


    In a perfect world, a child buries their parent. Unfortunately, things happen where a parent does have to bury their child,” Miller said. “But having to bury the same person three different times because of reasons out of our control, it was pretty devastating.”

    Texas EquuSearch volunteers, families of the missing and investigators attended Tuesday’s service to support Miller. Galveston County District Attorney Jack Roady even delivered Laura’s eulogy and led the attendees in a prayer.

    “I think I heard a little voice say, ‘Dad, I’m sorry for the all pain you’ve been through,'” Miller said.

    Possibly she left not only physically but also mentally. Chasing a high allowing escape from her mind? Where can one hide from themselves?

    can we tell how old these are? are they outstanding warrants? I understand that Lacie has been in Texas a couple of years, so they are not recent.

    So shady - I hope we get more info. Could it be a ransom situation? Someone has her?

    https://nypost.com/2021/01/19/missing-mom-laura-read-sends-text-after-baby-found-abandoned/

    Laura “Lacie” Read, 34, claimed she was safe when she texted her father, Randy, Monday morning from Utah using a phone number that he didn’t recognize, news station KPRC reported.

    She then sent him a photo of herself and responded to a series of questions that only she would know the answers to, the outlet reported.

    Authorities agreed to stop looking for the missing mom, but officers and her family still don’t know why the boy was left to fend for himself. No charges have been filed for child abandonment.
