    <modsnipped discusses topic that is off limits>
    I feel really awful for her parents. It is so easy to get in over you head in your early 20s, even with a wonderful family and a bright mind & kind soul.
    We can hope that there were other security cameras in the area at the time that the mystery driver left the park. I really don't understand why LE released the info on the cameras being non-functional. One would think they would keep that information a secret from the mystery driver, unless the cameras actually are functional and they do want him/her to be out and about again...

    I don’t know... time is of the essence. Someone goes missing, an eyewitness saw them get into a car, what legitimate reason would LE have in withholding a description of a suspect or vehicle? Can you think of another scenario where they refused to release details until another person corroborated what may be the ONLY eyewitness?

    Unless they don’t 100% believe the Lyft driver’s story.

    Those were some of the questions in the presser -- police said they were not releasing the info which makes sense for an ongoing investigation.

    This is where my thinking is leading... since we don’t know who it is, but whoever it is she’d have to feel comfortable meeting at that time and the location, so it would need to make sense to her to choose the park or agree to go there. Possible a halfway point? Possibly explains why she didn’t leave the airport right away - maybe the person said they’d let her know when they were about 15 minutes away... I can think of plenty of other “maybes” that could make sense too, but definitely thinking something like a halfway point makes most sense right now.

    It could be a strategic decision.

    They might be close to identifying who this person is, and don’t want to tip them off, or escalate things.

    Put out information like that, it could turn up the heat, and lead to unintended consequences.

    Law enforcement wants to solve this, and there has to be a solid reason behind this decision.

    I could be wrong, but the politics look wrong on the Tumblr when compared to her FB page.

    Trip out of town together, i.e., vacation/cruise, etc., to remote destination.

    Escapism d/t mental and emotional stressors. Hiding out somewhere.
    Doesn't want to return to work and/or school, but doesn't want to contact LE, either.

    That’s not what a plasma donor center does.

    What if the Lyft drivers says she was seen getting into a police / sheriff / UHP vehicle.

    From what I have looked at they seem to match.

    We passed medical last fall. It's also a pretty easy drive to certain parts of colorado and then once Wendover opens their dispensary in NV, it will be an even shorter drive from SLC

    They want to let the contact know they have a description & are putting them on alert to contact LE or the info is disclosed to all MSM

    I agree that it matches up. For me it's the political posts in particular that make it look like her page.

    On Facebook, Kenzie lists her employer as Grifols. Google them in S/L City, and you get two different facilities.
    One of those is a plasma donation center.

    I so hear you. The why is the biggest piece of the puzzle missing. We don't know why or who she met. Conveniently, once again the cameras aren't working (or in some cases, just before the driver gets out of the car, it turns off!), so there's no video of a vehicle or a person she met.

    Not one family member or friend knows a thing about why she went there that night, instead of home. I don't care if you're an energetic college student or an old lady- something made this woman meet someone late at night, by herself, with her luggage. She just came back from her grandmother's funeral, had exams to take, a job, and a wedding to go to the following weekend that she missed.

    Why?

    It doesn't make any sense to me. If she wanted to run away or get away, it makes no sense that she would do this at that hour of night. She has a cat at home- most people don't leave their animals without provisions, but there have been a few that have stranded their pets- she doesn't sound like the kind of person to do this. Going by what her friend has said on here, she sounds like a caring young lady that had a lot going for her.

    So again, we ask, Why? After a trip home, getting in late, she texted her Mom who probably assumed she was either already at her residence or on her way. What caused this woman, who should have been tired and emotionally drained from her grandmother's funeral and had an exam to take, went to this park instead?

    Why is probably the same question going through all of her loved ones and friends minds. We can't understand why, and it's clear they can't, either.

    I don't buy that she went on a date at that hour- not with a cat at home, probably needing food and water, an exam to take, work. I just don't see a date with all that she had going on.

    I am wondering if someone texted her while she was on the plane, they wanted to talk or something, told her where to meet them, and from there.........we just don't know the rest.

    She doesn't work at a plasma donor center anymore and hasn't for almost a year now.
