    9 days missing doesn't sound good but one can hope she is safe and left voluntarily .

    OMG I know this woman. My wife just texted me to tell me about this. I hope she is OK. Laura is a very sweet person.

    She might have been in town on business and went for a jog

    I agree with KermitDFrog on this one. Does make you wonder where she is and if anything bad has happened to her??

    I'll keep my eyes open for her. With no Amber Alert issued, makes me wonder if she ran off.

    I agree. It's been almost a week too....tough to think about.

    A mother of 2 does not typically take off for a few days. I hope she's alive and well.
