    peculiar sez: “If they're worried about her right not to be found, then why put out that she's being looked for?”

    As the police chief said, she has the right to . not be found. Any adult does. But any adult should also realize that when they disappear, people will worry about them or at least want to know they are alive and well.

    A responsible adult who decides to assume a new identity and go underground should communicate that they are OK and don’t want to come home. People back home are fearing the worst and wondering every time a dead body or part of one is found, if it is their son, daughter, or sibling. They are entitled to peace of mind.

    Too bad the security cameras at Hatch Park weren't functioning. Why invest in them in the first place if they're not maintained. They can play such a vital role in situations such as this. Hope she's found safe soon.

    She's coming home after a flight and meets someone at a park at 3:00am? Why wouldn't the person she met at the park just pick her up at the airport?

    Something doesn't smell right!

    According to Assistant Chief Doubt, they are using the national press and database publicity to ask her, even if she doesn't want to be found, to at least let them know she's OK.

    "Police have listed Lueck as "missing" on a national database, so if an officer comes across her anywhere for any reason, the officer will know people are looking for her.

    Doubt said there is also the possibility that Lueck does not want to be found, which is her right. "

    That doesn't make much sense. If they're worried about her right not to be found, then why put out that she's being looked for?

    I don't like it.

    Unknown persons cannot be trusted!

    I hope everything is OK.
