    To set up a rendezvous point BOTH she and the mystery man would have to be recognizable. Right? I still think a professor or co worker who lives 15-20 miles from airport. Otherwise, why the cloak and dagger?

    So if they know where to look, and find something that shows she is on certain apps or what not (accounts with pics etc) is that enough
    Wait......LYFT has a “territory” or mileage rule? I must have missed that. It definitely makes the theory of her being farther away more credible. What’s the cut-off, and how much is it per mile?? I am very interested if anyone knows! TIA

    One thing about the location drop-off choice in this case: Hatch Park in North Salt Lake City, UT.

    This is just a theory, but if you are meeting someone that you know at a park at 3 am, I think it would be because you are unsure of the right address, but have a general idea of where that person lives. So maybe the person on the phone says they live behind Hatch Park or something like that and offers to meet them at the park and take them the rest of the way. Or they live in a gated community or complex nearby.

    So I would theorize that the location she ultimately went to was very close to Hatch Park, but complex in terms how someone would describe getting there at 3 am in the morning. Hopefully she is found safe. Whoever she went with must have been very confident she did not tell anyone else where she was going. It will be interesting to see how this missing persons case turns out.

    I don’t think they have a set boundary, but it gets expensive going long distances. All they wanted was a clandestine meet up. Also neighbors would maybe notice an Uber rather that just his car going into the garage.

    This is interesting. Why would they meet where they knew there would be a witness and witness account, as in the Lyft driver? Unless they didn't know she was taking Lyft. Either not thought through enough or something unexpected.? Seems to me that points away from intent. Imo.

    Maybe the person she met is a fellow student and they planned to burn the midnight oil, so to speak, and cram for the exam? Or so he told her?

    The problem I have with the voluntarily missing scenario is that even if she just needed to get away, I don't think she'd want to worry her family, particularly so soon after the death of her grandmother. Didn't she text her mom right after the plane landed to let her know she was OK?

    I'm thinking along similar lines as you.

    When my grandmother passed away many of my ex-girlfriends I missed and hadn't spoken to in ages found out about it somehow and reached out to me to offer their condolences. Some were currently in new relationships but regardless of that still wanted to be there for me to comfort me.

    Could see someone ML had a relationship with very long ago popping back up suddenly offering her the comfort she is craving after such an emotionally exhausting trip and them planning a covert meeting in the park since the ex is in a new relationship with someone they are now living with that would prevent her from going to their home.
    The ex'snew partner saw them sneaking off in the middle of the night and followed them and did something in anger and jealousy to either her or both of them and is now trying to cover that up.

    It looks like her venmo profile is public and the last time she paid someone was 8 days ago.

    Why assume the person she was meeting knew she would be arriving in a Lyft vehicle?

    If you are only 15 minutes away why would you make someone get a ride to come to you? Just doesn't make sense It can't be true. imo

    Because the person she met wanted to limit exposure to the Lyft driver, hoping the driver wouldn't see a vehicle and wouldn't be able to give a good description of him/her. All of the other options would open this person up to surveillance and more eyeballs.

    if this was just a 'simple' affair - why would they care if a random Lyft driver saw them?

    That's actually a sweet thought. When my mom died, an old boyfriend from high school, who still lives in my hometown (I live several states away now) contacted me after he heard the news. Corresponding with someone who knew my mom (as my friends in my new state did not know her) and who knew me from "back then" was a huge comfort. There was no chance of a hook up or 3am meeting, but perhaps at another stage in life, it would have been a possibility.

    I don't think that happened in this case, but it's nice to think of something sweet rather than something sinister, even just for a moment.

    I totally agree! After the death of her grandmother, I can’t see anyone being so heartless as to do a voluntary missing scenario. I strongly feel that there is foul play. Imo, she is being held against her will or she is no longer with us.

    Im pretty sure you could take a Lyft to colorado if you wanted to pay for it and the driver was ok with it.
