    I had heard about the Sarasota sighting,but this is the first evidence I have seen. Does anyone have more details on this report?

    Thank you for sharing. Since Gabby’s parents have been very outspoken in their desire for their daughter’s life to bring meaningful change to the world, I think they would appreciate your message.

    After crossing the creek, her boots were probably wet, so she took them off and put them beside a little fire that they built (my speculation only). Then it turned cold at night. I wonder if those conditions contributed to what happened.

    I could not agree more. I appreciate expert input to explain what is going on - like, say, explaining just what the police can and can't do when executing a search warrant, or just what exactly attorney-client privilege is. That depends on specialized expert knowledge, and is generally applicable.

    But a retired FBI agents opinion on where BL is right now? That's just for clicks, IMO

    I agree, it’s a matter of why he’s missing. Is he hiding or is he dead?

    So many details missing. For example, do the witnesses at Merry Piglets...any of them remember what Gabby was wearing, and comparing that to what she was wearing when found. Also, I think LE does have the technology to analyze food passing through the digestive track more than they have disclosed. Helpful to estimate time of death.

    Mystery still ......why LE is still focused on Reserve....

    Expert, or inexpert, here's two MSM posts posted here this morning with wildly different theories as to where BL is. You're exactly right: if we knew what the FBI knows, we might form different opinions. Just in the past day, I have started leaning more in the direction of him still being in the area they are searching now, and perhaps deceased. UGH. It's still not my first theory, but I'll be content to be proven wrong if they find him. JMHO

    That is the million dollar question...
    I'll reiterate:
    Why does LE keep focusing on the Reserve?
    What info do they have?

    I have a question. On August 27, Red, White & Bethune saw the van and have a video of that. Then Elk Hunters spot the van August 29, per the timeline. Is the van in the same spot or had it moved? For some reason I have confused the Elk Hunters with the RW&B family, thinking they are the same. tia

    yes. In either case, I can’t think of any scenario where he is a victim. Missing, to me, implies innocence. JMO

    ETA it’s simply a matter of semantics. But semantics are very important when one is trying to drive a narrative in a certain direction. Which I think is precisely what the attorney is trying to do. Again MOO

    I’ve come to lean in that direction, the more the FBI continues to search the Carlton reserve (4 weeks now), bring in cadaver dogs, etc.

    Yes, but see how you go via I-80 to get there? I-80 goes directly west to SlC, straight across WY. In other words, right close to the Tetons.
    You can drive on auto-pilot, practically, from WY to the Chicago area. Then you get more interstate spaghetti.
    Because of where Benton is, and relative to the Tetons, BL almost certainly came east on I-80. Then went south through Benton.
    He would have had to fill up the van a tank before that. Or, at least, FBI could make a guess from how much gas. If he put in 10 gallons, he last filled at approx 250 miles back on I-80. At a guess. Not so much needle in haystack…..

    IMO she ran away from him barefoot, and he caught up to her.

    What if he actually got lost at least some of the time? I see him as wannabe, kinda clueless.
