It was Laura’s birthday yesterday. She’s 23. We were hoping that she’d call us, but she didn’t. Hopefully she’s alive and will one day decide to get in contact with someone.


I just wanted to say thank you to The Charley Project for posting the information about Laura on their site. It was completely unexpected. They’ve brought so many hits to the blog and have exposed Laura to many other people.

Thank you again,


Hi everyone,

Thank you for checking in. We’ve still been trying to get media coverage and other volunteers to get up flyers.
Does anyone know any long distance truckers that could put up flyers at truck stops, rest stops and give them to other truckers? It seems like a really good resource of people that I don’t know anyone in the business of.
We don’t even know if Laura is still in Florida and she really could be anywhere.

If anyone knows any truckers or has any other ideas on how to get the word out about Laura, Please let me know.
You can contact me on here or at .

Thank you all so much


We’ve been fortunate enough to find great volunteers through facebook, craigslist and ravelry to pass out flyers all over! It has really been amazing at how much people care. We really don’t know how to repay everyone for their kindness.

If you would like to help put up flyers in the Tampa Bay area,  print out Laura’s Missing Person Flyer and let me know where you’ve put them. I’ve been trying to keep a mental map of where they’re going. Please let me know if you would like me to print some for you at your local kinkos.

– Thank you all so much,


I know that we’re getting into blogging pretty late in the game, but I figured that it wouldn’t be too late.

I didn’t realize that you could put things on here for downloading!

I just wanted to tell everyone who has taken the time to help in any sort of way weither it was just emailing us to get flyers and then posting them all over Tampa Bay, calling news reporters to try to get them to do a story on Laura, reposting a bulletin on myspace or sending us a comment on facebook to keep our chins up and they’re praying for Laura – Thank you all! It has been amazing and without your help we couldn’t have begun to do anything to find Laura.  

We are so greatful that there have been so many people willing to help. 

Thank you all so much for your warm wishes, prayers and hard work. We can’t thank everyone enough for helping us and we hope to repay the favor to someone one day in their time of need.
