Discussion in '2000's Missing' started by Doyle, Aug 12, 2003.
For some reason, her post has been removed from the Charley project site.
Still there but that link is no longer valid. It was probably changed when it was last updated to Rachel Louise Cooke.

Rachel's NamUs profile was modified yesterday 8/19/2021. I am not sure if it was another rule out. (currently they have 18 rule outs)
I hope one day they can find out what happened to her.

I was so excited when the vehicle was found a couple years ago...so incredibly disappointing that (apparently) it didn't yield any useful clues.....
The Baffling Disappearance of Rachel Cooke
For a little bit of fresh discussion;
What do you think happened to Rachel?
I’m thinking stranger abduction. I just don’t know if it happened on her run or someone lying in wait at the house. They didn’t keep the doors locked.
I would like to know more about the ex boyfriend. In the early years after her disappearance I heard nothing about him. The first time I heard of him was a couple years back while watching Disappeared.
Thank you imstilla for the good recap article.
Sheriff Chody really got this case moving again when he was elected, I had so much hope that we would find Rachael or at least get some answers. However, since he has been indicted for evidence tampering involving Javier Ambler and 'Live PD' , I don't even know what to think.

I can't believe this case will almost be 20 yrs old soon. I remember reading her father's blogs about the search for Rachel. I keep hoping there will be some break through, it's been too long without any answers for her family! I tend to think the ex-boyfriend was involved. I remember reading he had shown up to her parents' home (maybe like the nigh before she went missing or a couple days prior?) and wanted to see her and was rebuffed and was angry. An ex that is scorned seems like motive to me.
