    Thank you, I wanted to make sure the issue wasn't on my end.

    WFLA just stated that a TFR (temporary flight restriction) was issued in the same area that they are searching for BL in. No aircrafts allowed except for first responders. Could be something could be nothing.

    BBM. The phone. I missed that in the SW that her phone was turned off Sept. 1. Could they be searching in the Preserve for her phone and other possible evidence he may have dumped…possibly even that Sept 1 morning before returning home?

    Seems incredibly stupid, considering he had a million other places along the way to get rid of stuff…but we already know he’s not exactly the smartest creature in the forest.

    I've been watching History Channel's "Alone" series, so that obviously makes me a survivalist expert (LOL KIDDING). It does, however, give some indication of what sort of things he would need to survive by himself out there: food, water, shelter, fire.

    For food, in "Alone," they tend to set up fishing nets and trap lines, and many of them bring bows, since they aren't allowed firearms. Foraging only provides so many calories, and eventually, the body uses up its fat stores. BL wouldn't be hunting with firearms there -- the sound would draw too much attention -- and the vegetation looks too thick to hunt well with a bow. Plus, he seems like a pretty lean guy -- not many fat stores to use up.

    If he really is out there (which, for the record, I don't think is the most likely scenario), he's going to be SUPER hungry by now. Or maybe someone's been finding a way to drop off food for him? I hope they're carefully watching all roads in after dark.

    MOO.

    This! The helicopter that has been on the case for a week has been adamant he will cover everyday and hasn’t left prior. Also heard today’s search is fbi led and from other side of park.

    OK, are we assuming this means they found something and don't want media choppers?

    I know, but I wish she could have, she was the only female there, and she was the only one who took the time to talk with Gabby.

    He is not a genius. IMO he was acting in panic during his time at Spread Creek. But now he has a plan. We'll see if he's that much of a mastermind.

    That could explain why he said he was on a long hike. Maybe he wanted to dispose of some stuff.

    I was finally able to find a picture where he is wearing those larger sandals that were sitting outside of their tent in one picture and outside of the van in the last picture that we have of their camp grounds

    It's from 11:45AM to 7PM tonight - daylight hours. I think it's to keep the news crews out. But who knows.

    Based on the video on their Nomadic Statik youtube channel, they didn't seem to use the van to live in or sleep, they would sleep in a tent and do most things outside of the van. The van was just used for travel/storage. There was no bed in the back of it, just a makeshift area to sit on. It's possible they walked away from the van with their tent and other items and camped away from it.

    I have a gut feeling that he will be found today. If they haven’t issued a TFR until now, they got something out of someone yesterday. MOO

    Cassie might have cared for her. We don't know yet.

    The helicopters might be distracting for the dogs trying to do their job.
