    I wish that LE hadn't mentioned the fact that they can't confirm the car or driver from the meet up. How is that helpful at this point? They could have saved that for a few more days as they sorted through the tips that are coming in, along with the info they coming in from the warrants.

    Where did you hear the Lyft driver was a woman? Also, I think I'm more curious than most women I know. I'm not sure about that generalization.

    I think there is plenty the Lyft driver has told LE that’s not public. She had to have told him (do we know the driver was male?) exactly where in the park to drop her off, which would have led her to explain why. How vague she was or whether she told the truth is another story.

    This doesn't seem to be the case, I think that they would have said something about the ride being ordered from someone else's account. Also, in one of the pictures at the airport she appears to be holding her phone in her hand, so it looks like she was using it.

    Yes, but I just cant shake the thought that if someone had ill intentions from the start, they would have parked completely out of sight of the LYFT driver. Imagine your going to commit a crime, you don't want anyone to know you were in the area you don't let yourself or your car be seen at all. Of course at this point nothing is ruled out and everything is on the table.

    In the press conference, they specifically referred to the Lyft driver as a "He."

    Unless the person didn't want to be seen?

    Or she chose the meeting point for a reason that isn't obvious to us.

    Why do I think that the driver DID get out of the car to greet her? In the first presser, I believe LE said that the Lyft driver indicated that ML was happy to see the person she met and they "made contact." Did I just imagine that? Don't have the energy to scroll back and find that presser.

    Welcome - I have snipped this (SBM) to say that those places you mentioned probably have cameras that work. Hatch had cameras - there are signs posted at the gate - but the cameras were not functioning. (ETA: and someone knew that IMO)

    IMO this is pivotal.

    Again, playing devil's advocate, not exactly true. I unknowingly flew out of LAX with marijuana in my bag a few months ago. (it was inside of a suitcase inside of a bag inside of a bag) My bag was not searched or opened and I don't have a medical card so it was technically illegal. In California it's fine for me to have it, but I was traveling to Illinois, where it also wasn't caught.

    First time poster here. I live in SLC so I have been following MacKenzie's disappearance.

    I went back in this thread and did not see mention of this recent article by the Salt Lake Tribune: Who did MacKenzie Lueck meet? Salt Lake City police ask key person in this baffling missing person case to call them..

    It mentions that Lueck interacted with police in an assault investigation. Police spokespeople did not indicate whether she was the "victim, suspect, or witness" in this investigation.

    All speculation of course, but this may indicate she was a victim of assault or had an abusive relationship in the past? I have seen a number of posts indicating suspicion toward the ex boyfriend. Does anyone know whether he had a new girlfriend? Maybe he had reason to want to hide his meeting with MacKenzie and was therefore meeting her in the middle of the night?

    Also, just watched an interview with one of the sorority sisters and she mostly averts questions relating to Lueck's use of dating apps and her possibly having secret social media accounts. I think this is purely to protect the image of their sister and am hopeful they have been absolutely forthright with investigators. It certainly feels though that there are details they are not being forthcoming with the media on.

    Made contact could mean a wave of recognition?

    Welcome to Websleuths, and thanks for the very valuable insight!

    So where do you suppose they planned to go from the park?

    It's been private the whole time.
