Oh, I agree there could be many reasons he was not at the birth and said as much, that the circumstances are unknown. It could have been beyond his control or was his choice, hard to say. He is certainly no suspect here so I will not add more as he is a victim who has lost his daughter. Yes, calling in Texas Equusearch immediately surprised me which is why I wondered who called them in. I pray they find her both so she can be laid to rest and justice can result. I would like to have hope she is alive but this is one case that I think it is pretty unlikely.
