I don't even know what would happen if I disappeared completely for 24 hours with zero warning to anyone. I'm in contact with someone almost continuously. Would be an interesting experiment...but Mrs. Spider would be waiting with a club when I walked back in the door. :)) Which I'd deserve.

Speaking of big sticks and getting lost, the Navy just lost one of their crew on his own ship. Thinking he had gone overboard, there had been a gigantic international search going for days lol. But he was there the whole time, apparently hiding down below:

Maybe the guy just lost it.

Yes it is. You are trying to be macho here for some unknown reason. give me a break with this. If you went out drinking with friends, left without telling any of them where you were going, missed work the next day, and 20 hours later still no one had heard a peep, you are telling me that NO ONE would be looking for you? You're full of shit dude.

It is being a fully functional adult.


This isn't a "hey, I'm going to be with friends for a few days, I'll see you when I get back" kind of issue that you used as an example. I mean I've been backpacking several times back in the mid to late 90s and no one came looking for me after a week. Why's that? Well for starters, I told people I was going (with one exception), I checked in with the ranger station to get my permit and tell them where I'd likely be each day, and then checked in via phone on the last day to say I was heading back. 6 days of no communication. And guess what? People do that ALL THE TIME without issue.

What makes it an issue is if you don't tell anyone of your plans first and then go completely dark for a day. Virtually no one should be surprised when they miss work and go missing for over a day and no one has any clue where they are. People post stuff like that on Facebook all the time so this certainly isn't a unique situation other than that it was a "famous" person missing.

This entire type of drama is caused by


Let me finish this for you because you got it wrong - this was caused by one of her friends/family concern for her because she went missing without saying anything to anyone and they wanted to make sure she was ok. Yes, Reddit white knights spread it to every sub because she's pretty. I get that. But she could have avoided this whole thing by just telling one person "hey, I'm going offline for a day."

What part of contact the police and don't post this to social media do you not understand? That is the issue. Not the concern by friends and family. Social media is only for when you know definitively they are missing, not a day one response - at least for adults whose privacy you respect.

Why wouldn't you do both? And if you think the police are going to go out rushing to look for a 20something that is missing, well, I have a nice bridge to sell to you. Adults - as you have somewhat pointed out - can do whatever they want. There has to be some heavy hints of foul play before they are going to start actively looking for an adult, and not just make a report.

I think the intent with the post to reddit/twitter was to find out who last saw her and to give them a starting point, or if anyone had seen her recently since she had been reported missing. Nothing wrong with that. I mean, why wouldn't you do that if you were legitimately concerned that a loved one was missing. You are saying you wouldn't be trying to use every tool available to you if you thought someone you cared about might be face down in a ditch somewhere? C'mon.

Social media is only for when you know definitively they are missing, not a day one response - at least for adults whose privacy you respect.


Says f**k who? Where is that law written down? I like how you try and play this out like you are some kind of authoritative figure on how people are allowed to use social media lol.

It is childish, immature and attention-seeking behaviour to post this on social media after a mere 20 hours, especially when the "missing person" is relatively famous among a demographic of people who talk favorably about "weaponized autism." If you are going to do anything on social media, you create a private group and invite people you know are there and you know are friends, in addition to calling the police. What you don't do is broadcast this all over Twitter for any f**k asshole to get ahold of. I would have friends I KNOW AND TRUST looking for my wife, not a bunch of rabid neckbeards who jerk off to her livestream.

It is called privacy. Some people respect it, and some don't. Privacy for your family issues, privacy for your loved ones, privacy for your problems. If and when you know something is really up (i.e. NOT when somebody decides not to check Twitter or call you for under a day), maybe you can start thinking about rolling this out to social media.
