    We do not know that to be true. I do not see why BL coming home alone with the van was much different from BL flying home alone the week prior. He simply could have told them that she was staying in WY with her friend for her birthday, which had been a well established plan before. GP's mother said it was not until possibly NINE days after the 8/30 text that she started getting concerned. “I believed she was in a place with no service,” Schmidt said. “It was day eight, nine that I really became concerned and I figured she couldn’t be off the grid for that long.”‘We just want her home’: Woman from Long Island goes missing on road trip with boyfriend | PIX11

    I haven't heard anything about the relationship between GP and BLs parents prior to this incident. I have been married for 17 and I have Inlaws who never pick up the phone when I call there and then call my husband and ask why I might be calling. I do not think it is a stretch for them to start pressuring their kid about why GP's family is calling. I do not believe they constitutionally did anything wrong to hire an attorney. I work in the legal field. That is exactly what I would tell my family. The only way this story starts changing is if they think he is guilty of something. From the day she is reported missing to the day BL is reported to have left for the preserve is three days. I do not think it is a stretch for an attorney to tell their client who is professing their innocence to not talk to the police.

    The country is vilifying this family for the hideous acts their son likely made. I am certain if he had a criminal record we would have heard about it already. I know conspiracy theories a fun to entertain but if you just break it down there are less dramatic scenarios that make make more sense. I always try to look at it from the point of view of a juror. And is there a plausible explanation. For BL I sadly do not see one. However, for his parents to not dragged their child to the police station and reported information that they did not have, against legal counsel's advice, there is. MOO

    I understand the intent, but....stop and think a moment...

    There's a lot of Him in there....Personally, it's hard for me to watch, knowing what was going on when the recording stopped.

    Idk...I'll be following what her parents do to memorialize her.

    That's just My Opinion.

    I had thought this too. Seeing pics of that creek area where the van was pulled over. If they had gotten out to explore and then what you said happened. Tons of rocks there! But then why do you think was the van in that weird spot for three days?

    He deleted the messages as they come in or he blocks Gabby's parents on his parents' phone.

    Or he asks his parents not to respond to them. <modsnip>

    I dont recall providing a home address when signing up for Youtube. It's been a long time though. I imagined they emailed you and asked where to send it.

    There is a red truck and the mustang. I always thought that Mustang may be registered to the mother. Most spouses have their own car. But, Who knows..

    Guys if the family doesn’t report him missing until Friday- why does the sister give an interview on Thursday saying she wishes she could talk to him? Presumably, if he’s just out on a hike(and not on the lam) why wouldn’t the sister be able to talk to him?

    Definitely there is a discrepancy there. It seems most people are choosing to believe one MSM over another (as ABC7 says the car was picked up from the reserve on Thursday).

    Some of us are hovering in the middle, until (if) we have some official police confirmation of exactly what happened.

    And even if you have a good repellant and they aren't biting you, the constant buzzing alone is maddening.

    I've been watching local news, WPTV deployed a local reporter and Brian Entin who has covered a lot of this also used to work for WPTV so I've been following him as well.

    This would be a waste of valuable time.

  14. Someone suggested that Gabby wanted to be an influencer. I think she has influenced us all in many ways. When our kids don't answer their phones and we worry, we won't wait a few days before we over react and panic. If we get a strange message from them that makes us have an uncomfortable feeling in our stomach, we will check in with them immediately and follow up. No one wants their child to end up like this. I am not suggesting in any way that her parents did anything wrong. They had no reason to believe she was in danger. She was with her fiance, a man who loved her. Why would they worry? But Gabby's story will stay with us forever. We will be influenced by her example for a long time. If nothing else, maybe her "domestic violence" interaction with the police will influence first responders and small town police officers . Maybe it will serve as a training video and influence people in authority to think twice, to be more observant and save the next potential victim.

    These are great thoughts. Maybe first steps are to place mental health/domestic violence hotline numbers in bathrooms of NP's and campgrounds. So that someone knows there are helpful caring people at the other end of the line that you can either talk to or they could help with advice, or lead them to a safehouse. Maybe LE should hand out cards with these resource numbers during suspicious stops.

    Just thinking out loud. I wish there would have been a way to help Gabby.

    If you have that many subscribers, you may be monetized I believe. I'm not sure what level of subs you need to get monetized but there's also sponsors etc so I imagine at some point, you have to give your info for tax reasons. I'm not 100 that that's how it works but I reckon.

    BL came home and told his parents they broke up and Gabby went off with someone else. He is not himself and his parents assume he’s heartbroken and upset about the breakup. His parents feel Gabby is enemy #1 for breaking up with their child and running off with someone else. They proceed with “normal” family activities (biking, chores around the house, etc.) to keep their son busy and keep his mind off the devastating breakup.

    Then Gabby’s parents start contacting BL’s parents and BL’s parents don’t want to get involved because it’s not their relationship - it’s BL & Gabby’s relationship and they are adults (plus they are still upset with Gabby for breaking their son’s heart and have no desire to speak with her parents). Then reports that Gabby is REALLY missing surface and they think Gabby has run into trouble after she left BL. But they are concerned that things look bad for their son (and maybe they even start to have suspicions), so they contact a lawyer who tells them to speak to anyone.

    That does not explain refusing to speak to Gabby's family at all or to relate what their son told them.

    ***
    Aside -
    "Van gets picked up"? What does this refer to? It was at their home.

    MOO there are many people with MH, the rate of murderers no greater in that group. It's about the individual's and their choices.
