Latest news from her EQ2 guild site is that she never left Vegas and lied about being on the way home and her credit card has been used in Vegas after the time she claimed to be in Albany, NY. Her friends and family are now convinced she has chosen to vanish.

Disappearing at a rest stop brings back haunting memories of The Vanishing for some reason. I hope shes found safe and in good health.

She was driving a rental car, so the police are working with the car company to get the make and model. That should help. I hope it's just the case where she decided to get off the grid for a couple days and forgot to tell anyone. I hope nothing bad has happened to her.

It's fine the administration cleared you at 9am this mornning after your last call confirming your where abouts. But just to be safe bring up google maps to have them stand down the dog teams.

I'm hopeful that woman is safe. Usually when an adult woman like this goes missing, they don't want to be found or they've just been inconsiderate about going off the grid and didn't tell anyone.

Not always, but enough of the time that there is still some hope. It's not like a kid where if it's been 48 hours it 99% certain they are dead.

I also hope they find her safe.

So after finding out I have alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency, and on the road to getting back to work, I pass off my 'return to work' paperwork at the doctors office Thursday 2 weeks ago, and get a call from the officer manager that they lost all my paperwork and need to come in for a checkup to make sure I'm really able to do so after my doctor said it was ok. Fast forward to Tues. of last week, where my sister and nephews head to the west coast on vacation, and my bro-in-law to the east coast for work. Mom calls me says she needs to go to the ER because she hasn't gone to the bathroom in 12 days. I'm thinking ok, easy enough ER trip that I can do solo. Turns out my mom has a major blockage and they try 2 enema treatments, with little success. They want to do exploratory surgery with recommendations that her colon be removed. (For those who don't know you can live without your colon, but you are on a colostomy bag if this happens). They go in and find all sorts of problems including some gangrene, so the colon has to be removed. The big question was if she would survive the surgery (being 72 years old, 128 lbs, blood pressure issues, OCPD, etc). Thankfully she survived it and is a few days from being off the ventilator.
The hardest thing I ever had to see in my life was back when I was 12 after my father's liver transplant and seeing this huge built 6'6 240lbs guy hooked up to every machine under the sun including a respirator. That was until a few days ago where I see this tiny, frail 5'2 120lbs women hooked up to the same machinery that made her look even that more frail and tiny. Sadly my father never left the hospital after his surgery, but every day my mom is getting stronger and progressing 3 times as fast as anyone they have ever seen, considering the odds.
The really suck part of this is that I'm suppose to quit smoking due to A1AT, but considering my brother in law gave me full access to his liquor stash while he was gone (which I haven't touched.. YET), I think I'm doing pretty good so far.

Sorry just needed to get this off my chest, and after my immediate family, you guys rank a close 2nd.

Disappeared at a rest stop? Does not look good.

Good on that Russian guy. Serves the douchebag bank right.
