Ind. woman Katelyn Wolfe vanished four days ago, and police in Linton are seeking help from the public in finding her. In fact, this Case to Case post shares that officials believe the 19-year-old is in danger. So what could this mean? The first 48 to 72 hours of a missing persons search are the most vital hours, so it's not encouraging to see that this window of time is quickly closing.
What kind of danger could Katelyn Wolfe be in while missing? It's not likely that she's missing voluntary if you go by what her loved ones have said. It's reportedly not in her behavior to vanish for days on end, but her very public Facebook profile shows a young woman who enjoys partying -- and possibly in excess. So who's to say that she's not somewhere voluntarily right now? Perhaps there is more evidence in her case that police haven't publicized which leads them to believe she's in danger.
Linton, Ind. is approximately 45 miles from Bloomington -- which is the home of missing coed Lauren Spierer. There's no evidence to connect these two disappearances, but there are some similarities. Lauren Spierer was reportedly last seen wandering home barefoot and drunk after a night of partying with friends when she vanished. While there are heavy amounts of suspicion cast toward her friends, it's also highly likely that this woman was kidnapped. In the case of Katelyn Wolfe, the young woman (close in age to Spierer) was last seen on foot in the late night/early morning hours of June 6 -- literally two years and three days after the disappearance of Lauren Spierer, and less than an hour away.
