From above article:
-Jenna and Michael are from Temple, Texas. They were last heard from around 3 a.m. on Friday, January 4 under suspicious circumstances. Michael was last seen at 4:10 p.m. on Thursday, January 3 and Jenna was last seen that same day at 4:38 p.m., TDTNews reported.
-“We suspect foul play inside of (Swearingin’s) house based on the security updates,” he said. “However, all footage was completely deleted from his home computer around 8:30 p.m. and the camera was shut off.”

Could this mean it started where they live in Temple and ended in Austin, where the car and his phone were located? I’m trying to figure out the security footage being erased FROM his home PC. They were both last seen Thursday, the 3rd. They were last heard from around 3am Friday, the 4th, ‘under suspicious circumstances’. The article states the 3am communication was clearly not them. It doesn’t really give the exact date the security footage was deleted, though. Michael’s friend posted the security info on Jan 7th, Monday. He didn’t state what day it was deleted. I find it hard to believe that this doesn’t have something to do with the crazy exbf that’s been stalking Jenna. He’d gone so far as to break into her home. She had a no contact order on him. jmo. There’s less info released about Jenna’s whereabouts or phone, etc. I feel so badly for her little girl, and both of their families and friends.

I’m wondering same. And who would know how to erase it? But if they were held at gun point and told to erase, then made them get in car. I wonder if police know where the ex is. I’m not sure even an Ex. A previous Tinder date.

They definitely met on Tinder. I heard/read that they dated a little while, but he was too aggressive and stuff. He didn’t take rejection well at all. That’s someone I’m certain that LE will be looking into. So scary. JMO

Missing woman’s restraining order later tossed by judge

In a restraining order filed in July 2018, Scott told the court she feared for her safety and the safety of her family.

According to the filing, Scott and the man in question, who KWTX is declining to identify because it is not clear if he has any connection to her disappearance, began dating in August 2015.

The order required the man to stay away from Scott and her family and not to contact anyone connected to Scott’s master’s program at the University of Mary Hardin Baylor.

It did not state when or if the relationship ended.

A court hearing was held in August and the judge ultimately denied the protective order on Sept. 17.

Sickening and sad.

So some time after 4:30pm someone entered MS's home and then erased all the security footage. Any idea where MS lived? If they were escorted out of the house and into their vehicle around 8:30pm it seems a bit odd that no neighbors saw anything, unless MS's home is in a rural area.

A little more detail from the Temple paper about the bf and the protective order.

Temporary protective order indicated danger to missing woman, family

"A temporary protective order was issued in Bell County in July to prevent future family violence against Jenna Scott, and her parents, Jonathan Scott and Karen Scott."

This is really looking grim with the apparent violent ex. It seems he’s looking more and more like a solid suspect. However, would he be clever enough to erase security footage, etc? Someone sent text messages from Michael’s phone that his friends/family say weren’t him. What about Jenna? Was her phone used to send texts? jmo

A temporary protective order shows 28-year-old Jenna Scott and a man she was in a relationship with filed charges and protective orders against each other in July. According to an arrest affidavit, he violated that protective order by emailing her. She tried to re-file for a protective order in August. A few days after she submitted the paperwork, he was charged with allegedly breaking into her home and preventing her from calling 911. Within an hour of being served with a protective order, he was accused of filing a false report saying she was violent toward him.

A judge denied Scott's request for a new protective order in September.

Sorry if this is already posted. I did a quick scan and didn’t see it. The man that Jenna filed a protective order against is a MMA fighter from what I have read. That right there is scary. I’m curious as to what happened with the security footage. Praying for these two.
