It was the second time in two months that she reported an unexplained attack.

I limit my unexplained attacks to one a month...

. She told police that she was then moved about a block from where she was attacked but was not sexually assaulted or robbed, authorities said.

Have they checked her for alien implants, Scully?

Hmmm is right. She reported the 1st incident. Did it make her a target for the second? It sounds like it's someone she might know which wouldn't be unusual. Fortunately, it looks like he/she isn't a killer.

I'm still thinking old boyfriend or acquaintance who wanted to be her boyfriend.

Saturday morning, she was waiting for someone; and her going out the door alone would seem to indicate it was someone she knew.

I don't know. Someone on another thread pointed out that she is at the age where schitzophrenia begins to manifest. I wonder if she had some sort of blackout and just couldn't explain her disappearance any other way.

Both Fox and local news: "There appear to be inconsistencies in the story of Audrey." News conference in a half-hour.

Well, this would mean I'm getting very close to winning the hypothetical bets with all of my friends. Hoax........

"Did it make her a target for the second?"

Are you kidding? She is a nut case who was never attacked by anyone or anything other than her own crazy mind.

"Saturday morning, she was waiting for someone"

I don't think she was waiting for anyone. She was just making up her mind about whether or not to pull her stunt.

She is just looking for attention.

It sounds like it's someone she might know which.......

Substitute "know" with "imagine" and you have my initial observations.

Please don't scorn folks with mental conditions. It's no path of roses, for them or their families. Have the same compassion you would for someone suffering from any debilitating illness. They don't ask for it, they don't deserve it, God knows.

If She's cried "wolf" twice, She's also set yourself up as a safe victim.
The police won't believe her again.

It is just too obviously a stunt.

True, but a stunt that could have caused her death from exposure.

IMO, the girl is likely suffering from a psych problem and needs help.

She is lucky that she survived this.

She is just looking for attention...if this is the case, I'd have given here some attention. [Here...get a load of this!] OK, bad metaphor, and just kidding. BUT if someone stoops this low...IF...and she is found out, throw the book at her.

The last thing we need, with future victims needing our help, is for someone to be crying "wolf." Makes me sick. For future victims, I hope this is not the case.

Prayers to all the families of abducted family members that you are granted the God's "peace that surpasses all understanding."

But she said she wasn't sexually assaulted.

My guess is: whack job. We had a person here in my town claim to be raped, turned the whole city on its ear for days, and it turned out she did it herself (I'll spare you details.) She wanted sympathy (and money) from her parents.

I agree. The person named "Dick" who is making such mean remarks on this thread might want to consider the HELL her family went through during the time this girl was missing.

Sounds to me like the girl had some kind of breakdown.

This is not a stunt. Most certainly she is in the preliminary stages of schizophrenia.

My daughter was also a brilliant girl, teaching herself to read at age 4, and skipping a couple of grades. All was lost to mental illness. When she went to the university she slowly began to lose touch with reality. Within 4 years, she was wandering the streets, sleeping under bridges and eating out of garbage cans. She could not comprehend or accept assisted living environments. She refused to do anything but wander the streets alone. We were powerless to help her. She eventually died on the street.

My prayers are with Audrey and her family.

Naw, just a 20 year old with a problem.

Really nothing unusual, but she seems like a loner and nobody saw it comming.

Thanks. As someone who is a caregiver for a family member with neurological problems, I just ask for a little compassion. It's not bed of roses, nobody asks to suffer in this way, nobody asks for this cross to carry. And to get scorn and derision instead of some pity just twists the knife. Not you, I just mean society generally.

Golly!

My sincere sympathy.

I too had some difficulties at that age.

I survived, but it is scary to think how many things may have gone wrong.

I had no idea what was happening at the time and I have a cat bird seat when I see things like this.

I agree. I have an 11 year old son with Asperger's Syndrome. It's no fun dealing with rages and meltdowns, or searching for him at night in the woods, and finding him by his crying.
