Here's a map so you can see where the country club is: https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&s...d=0CIYBEPwSMAA
If it doesn't pull up, try googling Salisbury Country Club, Midlothian, VA. If you follow Salisbury Road down to Wadebridge that is where the trap & food are. Her neighborhood entrance is Framar. It's a fair distance, but not out of the question. Especially since Abby was spotted by 2 people at Bandstead/Albion Roads which is about equal the distance going the opposite direction and also very near the other side of the golf course .

Yes, the map came up fine... I looked via the satelite image and can see how very challenging this search is with all the wooded areas involved.

Gosh wish there were some scent hounds available in your area! Wonder if some off duty K-9 cop would volunteer to try to track at least her 'path' . Maybe put the word out?... someone who knows someone? I know they'd not do it on the 'taxpayers-dollar' and understand that... but maybe off-duty ? Yes..I know I'm really grasping at straws here!

Was the owner not open to an animal communicator? ..yup again grasping!

The animal communicator hasn't been mentioned yet ~ I still need to tell her that. I also need to re-address the idea of hounds and see what the reasoning was for not using them. I just hung up with the owner and then saw your message. She has asked me to go to the Country Club and the church and put out new flyers and re-create interest. Also to flyer the neighborhood on the same side of the road as the Country Club, so I'll be doing that today.

BTW, not only is it wooded, but there are a lot of very steep valley kind of things in that area (never seen that before around here), swampy area and lots of preditor wildlife and waterways. Ugggh.

I can understand not wanting the scent dogs to get too close for fear of spooking her...but would think that if they could start from 'square-one' at her home where she went missing they could at least follow her general direction...
If it were me I'd go to the police and ask if they have tracking dog and could they possibly give it a try off-duty. Even if they said no... I'd leave name and number with request, as they might get a change of heart?

If animal communicator is dismissed for financial reasons maybe a request for help on FB? ( I don't believe it can be done here).

I think you are right about the k9 assistance and I will talk with her tonight or in the a.m. more about that. (She has to work a 10 hour shift today.) I'm not sure how she will feel about the animal communicator - she may love the idea or she may not be interested due to religious reasons ... I just don't know her personally enough to judge what her response will be. I will mention it though. I don't think finances would stop the search though. Thanks for all the great ideas .

I also think there should be a re-posting on craigslist lost&found.... I know it was on but now gone down the 'list pages' and newer people going for maybe something else will notice and keep eye out?

I hope she doesn't nix the dog communicator due to religious reasons..

Hi everyone, the owner worked a 10 hour day yesterday plus searching, so I haven't had a chance to talk with her about the ideas we mentioned earlier. They are strong, but still quite understandibly fragile too. She will be available more on Wednesday, so I think we'll be able to talk at great length then.

Right now, the owners have chosen to take a "wait and see if she surfaces approach". We are still putting out flyers (I update the Craigslist post every couple of days), talking to neighbors, churches and business, drive-by searches, putting out food and putting out fresh scents from the owners belongings. If Abby is out there, we have to just pray that she has the strength to show herself, so that we can pinpoint a better search area. She has not been seen since Thursday (1/31). During my search yesterday I saw a HUGE hawk right next door to where we feed Abby - where she is drawn out in the open to a mailbox to eat...this makes her a VERY easy target (she's partially blind/deaf) for such birds. Please don't stop praying that she is some place warm and safe and eating/drinking from someones cat or dog food bowl.
