    Don’t people leave the key on the tire when they want to lend their car to someone? Why would she leave her keys if she was just hiking?

    For those of us that don’t have Facebook, can you tell us how she is connected to St. Mary’s county?

    Nice to have bonus money to offer.

    sadly, it rarely rarely ever produces any fruit.

    Monsters are out there, folks. The day you decided to end the quick and powerful punishment of the death penalty, you gave them free reign. Ole’ Sparky put these demons where they belong, permanently.

    Now, instead – we have this horror to consider on a daily basis.

    Our children, wives, friends, and other loved ones are always at risk, living in fear, and going “missing”. You are breeding the disease that is killing you.

    Odd she left her cell phone behind & key on the tire to go for a hike. I would have taken both with me. Prayers to the family & hopes for her safe return.

    idk about you but a hike has always been told to use the buddy system. wouldn’t you want to listen to music while your on your hike or if you want to listen to nature you still bring it in case of an emergency its 2019. her stuff was all at the car staged in my eyes. i think offering a reward is no go. that just lets the person that took her or did something worse (murder) to step forward and get money for his/her own crime!

    Prayers for the family though loss is never easy weather its unexpected or expected.
