    I definitely think it is the Forest Rd 30290 section of the Spread Creek area
    I'm thinking around site #5 ?
    (Need confirmation - watch the youtube vid and match up to google maps/NFS campground map.)

    @wnk - in the yt video she said August 27 that they saw the van, right? Your map says 8/29, although that is when the elk spotters saw it I think.

    SO next question - how did he/they get from there to Coulter Bay? (heading to alltrails...)

    If he’s there, the dogs would drop and pickup his scent again (that’s a guess). I’m just having a hard time with the parents state of mind in letting him go (I know he’s an adult), knowing people’s outrage and his state of mind /mental issues. If he insisted on going why didn’t dad go with him? I do believe the parents know exactly what happened, maybe not Gabby’s location but they know she’s not here any longer. I don’t think there are any friends that would help him, another family member maybe. Possibly picked him up and took him to another location to hide out.

    To me, when i watch the video, it looks like someone or something moving in the front of the van as they drive past. Just me seeing that?

    I’m pretty sure the PD spokesperson was asked this a few days ago and his answer was no, they would not be sending any people… something along the lines of their guys wouldn’t be familiar with those areas to be of any use. I’ll try to find the video to link.

    Maybe someone on a computer can get a better screenshot? I am on my phone and wasn't going frame by frame so the stickers may have been blurry in that frame. Also I lightened the image because I was looking for the flip flops.

    Exactly and they haven’t yet so that leads me to believe they have it and won’t be sharing it yet -IMO
     
  13. Same hat is on the dash of the van in the Moab video.

    That red truck has some mud kicked up on it. Curious if that has always been there? Also living in Florida, I know we love when it rains, free car wash. Did it rain at their house yesterday? hmmm...

    Yeah I saw the hat on the dashboard in an ig story of BL's under the highlight, "van life". It's also in a post (second to most recent) on GP's ig grid but someone photoshopped the hat off of the pic. It's weird.

    ETA: I'm wrong about which pic I saw the hat in. It was in the same spot but it's a different hat than what I was talking about. Sorry!!

    I just keep wondering if BL was at his parents house how he got out of there to even go to the reserve to hike. In a news clip it shows BL mother outside for a minute and already news people were trying to ask her questions. In the news clip you can see the driveway isn't that big. And the front door to the home is very visible. With the mustang being parked closes to the door. JMO, but I think BL had a whole lot more time to make his get away than these days that he supposedly went to hike in the reserve.
    I'm sorry if I sound like Ms. obvious here. So many posts so fast, it's hard to keep up.
    I keep asking myself, how many people could actually be involved in helping this young man escape / avoid LE. I think about these men and women involved in this massive search, literally risking their lives to find this people. They have families, wife's husbands and children. So much RESPECT for them all. And who ever may be involved must know, or should know that in time LE will be able to come to better understanding of what has taken place. Then they will have to be accountable. SMDH!

    When you purposely slip off your shoes, you leave a pair, close together, behind. There's only one in the photo, pointed toward the van, not away. Who walks around with only one flipflop on?
