Its been twelve days. Twelve days of her parents not knowing where she is, or if she is even alive. Twelve days of endless searches, questions, tweets, re-tweets, Facebook posts, and heartache. It doesn't help that its raining and cold today which does a number on anyone's spirits. There are still search parties. Rain ponchos have been donate, hotel rates cut for searchers to come and stay. Discounts on food and supplies are available and hope is still available for everyone, but you need to grab on and hang on tight.
This is one of those times where I feel immensely and oddly compelled to do something. I can't tell you how many times in the past week and a half I have considered packing my four children to go walk Monroe county in search of Lauren. Its not practical, so this is the best I can do. I'm Tweeting, re posting on Facebook, and now blogging to encourage YOU, wherever you are, to stop and pay attention. I don't care if you're in Alaska, Vermont, Mexico, or Canada. Twelve days is long enough to get any of those places. Maybe you've seen this truck...
This is an image of and image of an image. Once there is a better one, I'll replace this picture. This is a
white, Chevy Silverado or Colorado. 4 door. Short bed with cargo in the back. Bed liner. Check out the wheels - they are distinct. There is also lettering that is working on being enhanced on the doors.
Maybe you know someone in Bloomington, IN or maybe you have passed through. Maybe this truck drove through your town, or is from your town and happened to be in Bloomington a week an a half ago. Please pay attention. Its a small world and anything small can be big!
