Lubbock police are expanding the search for Zoe Campos, but have not changed the status of her disappearance. This indicates that they still believe that the missing teen is "in danger," and for good reason. Some of the details of this girl's disappearance make it easy to speculate the worst case scenario -- or rather, every parent's worst nightmare. Was this teen the victim of foul play? It's likely.
When the Lubbock teen went missing her car was left abandoned -- but prior to being abandoned, a man was seen driving it. Media reports aren't giving any indication that authorities may know the man's identity, so for now this appears to be a disturbing mystery. It could easily be speculated that this mystery man was someone that had harmed the missing teen, and was seen driving the car as he was on his way to abandon it after doing something with her. But what did he do, and where can she be found?
It's important for ground searches to take place in an area surrounding where her car was found abandoned. Search any wooded or rural areas, any dirt paths or country roads. The search for this woman should hit all investigative avenues, and that includes searching for human remains.
