<modsnip - removed quoted post> As @oceanblueeyes just mentioned I also suspect maybe they think she could be long gone from the area. But this wouldn't make sense if the perp knew her through local contact, which could mean she is in a home or building fairly locally. Unless he took her to an external location separate from his home and further away (family property, cabin, etc.) Now if the perp is someone who groomed her online then she could be anywhere far away. There was a case here in NOCO quite recently...looking for link. We see on Chris Hansen “To Catch a Predator” all the time how far these perps travel. As I mentioned upstream there is a picture showing her holding a phone. So I think some older dirtbag maybe stole her.
