    Maybe if The Hook from Charlottesville would focus a couple of stories on the local missing persons that could help bring attention to Janet's case... Just thinking there are ways these subjects can be revisited and new information gained.

    Over 4 years since Renee went missing! I think someone is getting away with murder...

    On July 2, 2014, Janet Renee Field drove away from her home in Scottsville, Virginia after having a small argument with her husband, according to her husband’s statements to police. Renee never returned. Two days after she disappeared, police found her car abandoned about 20 miles from her house. Police say nothing was out of the ordinary with the car. Bloodhounds and cadaver dogs have searched both Renee’s home and the area near where her car was located, but nothing of significance has been found. Friends and family say Renee, 49, was a very private person who didn’t have any social media accounts, placing her even further off the grid and therefore harder for investigators to track. Authorities have investigated every lead they’ve received over the past four years to try to locate Renee.

    This case bothers me so much. I hope she is out there safe leading a new life but I can't believe she wouldn't have contacted her mother. I wish there was news.

    This case has always bothered me too.....I just don't think she would have left her mother. Perhaps someday she'll be "found".

    I've followed this case, too. I know the husband, boyfriend or ex is the first person LE looks at, but based on most of the media accounts the husband here does seem like a strong POI or suspect. BUT I can't rule him out either.

    A couple thoughts. The fact that Joan's vehicle was found at Zion Crossroads, Va. is significant IMO. In the years leading up to Renee's disappearance were at least two other incidents involving foul play that had connections to the Palmyra/ Zion Crossroads area. (If you are interested in the other cases, you should research Kristin Fox & Robert Hourihan - see links). Perhaps there is a bad guy who feels very comfortable in that Zion Crossroads area and could have been operating there. The possibility of Renee encountering the UNSUB at the local gas station a distinct possibility. Incidentally, RAT was known to hang out at gas stations trolling for women, and that is where he located Alexis Murphy. The articles that are linked in some of the earlier threads mentioned that Joan may have been at a gas station.

    The other thought I had was that JM (who killed Hannah Graham) was active during the summer of 2014 and and greater Charlottesville locales were his stomping grounds. It is possible Janet crossed paths with JM or RAT (who has been convicted in the case of Alexis Murphy).

    I'll check out the links. I suppose I had blinders on because of the age difference between Renee and the other women. Plus who knows who else is hunting in the area

    I did a Google search over the last 12 months and nothing. Nada. Zip zilch. Not one word on this case. The most recent update was around July 2018. If LE and media take an I-don't-care approach it is going to be even more difficult to solve.
