    #2 and #3 are concerning. No money then?No phone? How’d she call her mom? Pay phone? Do they still exist? (Yes I know there are a few.) Why not call back? Did someone stop the call and prevent her from recalling?
    Disturbing to say the least. Jmo

    Traveling from Baltimore, would go to Mardi Gras first (mid February - last parade was March 5) then on to SXSW (March 11-18).
    So if she was in Presidio on Feb 11th, she bypassed New Orleans Mardi Gras. IMO

    New Orleans to Presidio is approximately 1,000 miles, 15 hour drive.

    New information:

    “A family is searching for a 24-year-old woman who was last heard from using a Midland phone number to contact her mother back in February.

    Margaret Aislinn Channon’s last known location was Big Bend National Park on Feb. 11. Channon arrived at the park and later called her mother from Midland phone number 432-538-3315 at 9:32 p.m. that night. The call was dropped and attempts to call back were reportedly met with fax noises

    A park ranger confirmed she had left the park and was on her way to Austin, expressing intentions to visit SXSW music festival.

    [SBM]

    Channon was known to hitchhike.

    A missing persons report was filed with the Montgomery County Police, Bethesda District.
    The report number is 190011464.

    [SBM]” (BBM)
    Family searching for missing woman

    The article is from 15 hours ago, but it doesn’t mention the sighting in Presidio on Feb. 19. Perhaps it hasn’t been confirmed yet.

    Also, I just noticed the Big Bend NPS tweeted about Margaret last week:

    Missing person alert, last seen in Presidio (1 1/2 hours west of the park): Margaret Aislinn Channon. Last seen in Big Bend NP Feb 11 & in Predido, TX Feb 19. Please contact family or police department listed in the post. Thank you for your assistance.

    Very good question. I haven’t seen one yet. A “Help Find Margaret ...”-type Facebook page would be a great tool for spreading awareness, share more pictures (I have seen pictures of her on the fundraising site where she looks very different than the ones that have been used elsewhere), and if the family wishes, exchange ideas as to where she might have gone since there are so many possibilities here, IMO.

    I am curious...perhaps I missed something, but someone here mentioned wondering how/where she became separated from her friends. Do we know when she was with friends? Or was she traveling to all of these places alone? I have only seen that friends knew where she was intending to go...the music festival. Curious when she was last seen by someone she knew...again, sorry if I missed this!

    I don’t believe you missed anything :).

    There is an article that states:

    “Updated: Mar 14, 2019 10:00 AM CDT
    [SBM]

    According to officials with the BCSO, Margaret Aislinn Channon was on her way to SXSW in Austin and stopped at Big Bend National Park with friends.

    She has now been reported missing.

    [SBM]” (BBM)
    Brewster County searching for missing woman

    I hope the following is allowed since there is so little to work with:

    Last Wednesday. Margaret’s mom posted on her FB page she left her phone at a friend’s house in Nevada. (BBM)

    [A little more about the phone]
    In the same thread, her mom also said Margaret has a line on her account, and “that’s a dead end.”

    Two days ago, under a post by a high school friend of Margaret’s, who shared her missing persons poster, her mom commented Margaret's phone has been found and is being mailed to her. She also says Margaret hasn’t logged in to SM or email since January 18th.

    Also on Wednesday, her mom commented on her FB, Margaret was on a mission to see the country and pretty responsive until February. [No mention of anyone traveling with her]

    Hi there,

    I went to speak to the officer who last saw her. According to his description, it was approximately 2 or 3 in the afternoon on the 19th of Feb. She identified herself with name and dob, as she did not have id. The spot looked like the sort of place that someone might camp out: there was a natural shelter of trees, a water pump, and it was fairly secluded. Although the officer apparently patrols that spot regularly, so I guess she couldn't have been camping there too long.

    We also have an unconfirmed report she was spotted in Ojinaga, and I am trying to follow that up now.

    I wonder how often she checked in with family or friends while on her trip. Although she did not have her phone with her, I would imagine she could manage to contact someone if she wanted to. But it appears that even though she did not contact anyone between Feb 11th and the 19th, she was still safe (as it appeared to the officer). Also, if she was on the move all the time, I wonder where her phone was being sent to her?

    RSBM for focus

    I’m sorry I wasn’t more clear.

    What I meant to say is that Margaret’s phone has apparently been found in the last few days, and it is being mailed to her mom.

    Thank you so much, @mistree73!

    About once per week was typical.

    It sounds like Margaret is traveling alone? Perhaps making new friends during her travels?
