    She is actually 5'5" and has blue/green eyes according to the FB page. I believe this flyer will be updated.

    I wonder who saw or heard she had left to do laundry. Seriously its been almost 2 weeks. Where were her kids that night. Ugh so many questions. I am glad a detective has been assigned the case.

    I was looking at her personal FB earlier this afternoon and now all posts after March 2015 are gone. There were tons of posts in April and May until the disappearance. I didn't see anything fishy, so I'm wondering who could have taken them all down? Strange and will take note of that!

    So she goes to use her apartment's laundry facilities, goes missing, presumably no one sees "nothing", and 2 weeks later, we're just now hearing about this. I admit that LE generally knows so much more than we do, but how is this not fishy? She goes to do the laundry and vanishes. How is that not a red flag or of some major concern? Please correct me. What am I missing?

    That's not a great area.

    I guess this would be considered rumor since it was a comment on wavy.com's page but it seems she may have been reported missing earlier and the police department has JUST assigned a detective. Maybe they originally thought she may have left of her own accord.

    This is local for me so I'm really glad someone posted it here.

    But gone for 2 weeks? From all that I am reading on the Bring Katie Barham Home Facebook Page, it would appear that everyone is thoroughly worried about her being missing, using the usual "she would never abandon her kids" type quote. I hope she's okay, but from all that I am reading, this is highly suspicious and doesn't look good. No purse, no cell...the sad, but usual. I do wonder if her clothes were found abandoned, so to speak, in the laundry room. Of course it should be noted, this is all rumor and conjecture coming from the Facebook page.

    I can still see them. Her last post was about 1 am on May 28, so that is after the time she was last seen on May 27.

    So the bad guy got an unexpected 10 day head start. Lucky for him.

    Evidence lost, surveillance camera's already looped and taped over, handprints and footprints covered up by other patrons, eye witnesses forced to work from long term memory.

    Two kids at home with no Mom.

    Marvelous.

    Her Facebook is still active. Her last post is time stamped May 28, 12:24 A.M.

    That is just a little after midnight. It is being reported that she was last seen on May 27th at around 10:30 p.m. That would be about two hours prior to her last Facebook post.

    Who lived with this woman ? Where were her kids that night ? Is there a man in her life ?

    Who was it that discovered her kids were alone and she was gone ?

    Article says her boyfriend RF found the clothes still warm in the dryer.

    Uh oh, does this part cause you to raise an eyebrow?

    I'm going to reserve judgement for the boyfriend until we get more facts.

    It appears that there was another kidnapping just a couple of days ago.
