I wish Mr. Cox success in his search and admire the way he has constructed this scenario to get people thinking and helping. Elizabeth Smart wouldn't be free today without the help and constant focus of her family - the ones who will care most in any case.

Good Luck on you search. I do hope you find her body and are able to get closure finally on this tragedy. Steven Powell knows more than he is saying and is a spiteful man to now keep that information from your family. It will and has come back to him for his actions or lack thereof. I will keep you in my prayers and only wish the best for you and your family.

The cold fact is that Susan may never be found. Everyone eventually loses family members and loved ones to death, it is part of the life process. I believe her father is still grief stricken about this terrible situation. I have compassion for him and feel his pain, but he needs to accept it and realize that it is time to move on.

Exactly what I've been saying for years.

I drive a large section of I-84 quite frequently. It has sections of some of the most isolated and desolate area in the country. Much of the land around it is rugged and completely undeveloped.

I hope Mr. Cox finds what he is looking for, but unless he has some concrete information of where his daughter is, any search in that area is a waste of time and resources for all involved. I know people like to feel like they are doing "something" to help out, but wasting people's time like this is just wrong. The sad fact is that Mr. Cox has no idea where Susan may be, but he feels obligated to keep looking and to keep the story in the public eye. I can understand that, but it is still wrong to make others feel like they need to be part of his desperate but unfounded quest.

I cannot believe that Silent Lurker, Reasonable Person and DrGroovey feel that Mr Cox should give up. If my daughter was somewhere out there, I would leave no stone unturned, no building unsearched, and no possibilty uninvestigated. I am the father of three daughters and four granddaughters, and understand totally what drives Chuck Cox. If Steven Powell was any sort of decent human being, he would give any information that would lead to the discovery of Susan's remains. Come on Mr Powell, do the decent thing. Put an end to this. One day you will stand before the Judge of all men. Don't go there unrepentant.

Chuck Cox and family, you are in my prayers. My hope is that you will find the remains of Susan, and that she might rest alongside her sons until that glorious day of Resurrection, to be reunited with all of you.
