Urgent! SBUX Missing!

131 posts in this topic

If any of you hear from Lucy (SBUX), please contact CCCooperAgency immediately. Tonight she did not come home. The Pennsylvania State Police found her vehicle, UNLOCKED with the key inside. There was an unsual note (not handwritten) on the windshield. The area was combed for several hours by the K-9 and helicopter search & rescue units. We did not find her body. She is not answering any emails or cell calls. PLEASE! If anyone hears from her, please contact us - we are worried sick.

If I was close enough to your area, I would volunteer for the search team. I hope you're able to find her soon, and in good health.

 

You might want to post this in your regional forum too.

Shouldn't this be moved to the regular forum? Hope she is found soon, safe and sound!

I am going to move this from off-topic to the regular forum, in the hope that more people will see it that way, and that someone might know something or be in a position to help. The well-being of a geocacher is always on topic.

 

SBUX lives in Southeastern Pennsylvania (Harrisburg/Hershey/Lancaster area). Please, especially if you are in that area, keep your eyes open until we hear the news of her safe return. Here is a good picture of this intrepid geocacher; I hope it helps.

I write this with a knot in my stomach. Lucy is my friend and I'm worried sick. We had a fun time geocaching together the weekend before Christmas and I look forward to our next trip.

This is extremely disturbing. My wife and I are only minutes away from heading out for our 1st caching adventure. This certainly makes one think and should serve as a reminder to be aware at all times and to never cache alone. Both of you will be in our prayers today and we'll keep our fingers crossed for the best outcome.

Yes, very distrubing. My sincerest wish is that she is returned to her family and it was an innocent happening.

 

I wonder if it would be appropriate if TPTB could shoot off an email to everyone who has coords or zipcodes listed in their profiles near the area and ask them to be on the alert. Kind of a Cacher's Amber Alert.

 

Signed,

Here in SC wishing for Lucy's safe return.

I like that idea.

 

Wish there was something I could do. :huh:<_<

I wish there was something more that I could do than sit here at work and think good thoughts for you and SBUX. <_<

I have passed the news on to the Triangle group.

I'm not close to the area either, but if there is something we can do we'll be there for our friends. Just say the word.

 

What did the note say?

I like the Idea of the hacher's Amber Alert.... We wish we were closer to the area to help. But our thoughts and praers are with SBUX and the whole family. I called our Minister and he is starting the prayer chain to bring her home safely.

 

Best Wishes,

We are praying in Oklahoma, too. We emailed a non-caching friend in western Pennsylvania, explaining the situation and asking her to spread the story to friends and family in the region. We never send or continue chain letters of any kind, but we asked that this be sent on to as many people as possible, and asked that everyone join us in prayers for Lucy and her family.

 

And to the new cachers who worry about their safety-

Things like this can happen when leaving work, at the shopping mall, and walking in your own neighborhood. We may actually be a little safer when out caching because we are paying so much attention to what is around us.

My wife Shadowgal just asked if anyone has contacted local media for their assistence? Can't hurt to get the word out to as many people as possible, not just the caching community. Also contacting my brother; he's a rabbi in suburban Philly. He may have some contacts that can assist.

Was she going after a cache? and if so which one?

I'm posting a link to this thread on the alacache.com forums. We actually have at least one person from PA who is a regular participant in our forums so maybe it will help spread the word a bit. If there is anything that any of us can do for you, please let us know!

Whereabouts did this occur? I'm in Erie, PA and I'm willing to drive within 5 hours of here to volunteer for any search team. I was training with a search and rescue team for awhile, so it's not unfamiliar to me.

 

I will leave work this instant to aid in the search or do anything else I can to help. Let me know. If I can't help that way, know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and Lucy.

Screw 5 hours... I'm willing to drive anywhere. And I'll take anybody with me who wants to go. Email me through geocaching.com if you want to arrange something.

 

Being someone who caches alone quite often, I find this very disturbing and will definitely re-think how I do things. Please let me know if I can help.

I can't tell her age from the picture, but there are two resources her family should not overlook: http://ncmec.org if under 18, http://missingadults.org if of legal age.

 

I've worked with both agencies professionally for years; they know how to help.

My prayers are with you and your family, Lynn. I always enjoyed caching with Lucy and hope to do so again.

 

I'm heading to Washington DC this afternoon but was wondering if there is an organized search effort set up that individuals could join? Where did this occur?

When they find her, they understandably will not be concerned about rushing to the computer to let all of us know. It'd be nice for someone close to volunteer to be the one to rush back here to post, and let them concentrate on hugs and stuff. We're all very concerned, but they won't be thinking about us when they find her, nor should they be!

Has anyone done a search for caches in the immediate area where her car was found? Maybe trying to trace where she might have been heading would help.

 

Just a thought, hope this all turns out for the best....

There is a scheduled prayer meeting this Sunday at our Christian Church and we will voice a prayer for her safety to the usual 1500 people in attendance.

Add Texas to the list of supporters. We are hosting a weekend event for New Years and will keep the family in our thoughts and prayers. Hopefully when we return to the “computer world” on Sunday, there will be GREAT news posted here.

 

Please let us know if there is anything we can do down South.

That is a very, very good idea! Maybe she signed a logbook on one of the caches that can place her in the specific location at a certain time or date.

 

If she normally carries a cell phone, maybe it could be used as a "beacon". Call the number, let it ring, listen. Move into the area, repeat.

My prayers certainly go out for SBUX's safe return, and her family as they anxiously await.

 

Our family is praying too.

If her cell phone is powered on, her cell phone carrier could pinpoint its location. One would think the authorities have already done this, but it's a thought in case they haven't.

I live down the highway from you all in Owings Mills. Never met you folks but having seen your logs in many of the caches in this area on some level one gets the feeling that you do get to know the person a little.

 

This is terrible news and our thoughts and hopes go out to you and your family for a speedy and good end to this story. Of course if there is anything I can do please let me know.

I'm not sure how long it takes but the police can work with the phone provider and see what towers are nearby the phone (If it's still on and within range) If she's in a city they can tringulate and get very close, if it's in the country they can at least say that she was x distance from a given point.

 

But by the time they get through the red tape the battery may be dead.

Are there any phone numbers for police or emergency services in that area for people to call if they do know something? Maybe posting those numbers here or on that area's geocaching group's page would be useful in case somebody finds her or has information.

If you need any help with searching please call me (301-471-6978)! I can be there in an houre and a half. I am trained in wilderness search and rescue. Also, if you can give us some idea what was on that note we would have a better idea of what to expect.

I'd think the best number anywhere would be 9-1-1...(are there still areas that don't have that coverage?)

 

Anyway, good thoughts are coming from WA as well...
