  1. Big Bend has little to mostly no cell service. I live in Big Bend. There’s a few spots here and there where you might be able to get a bar but it’s hit and miss and not likely to get enough signal to upload pictures. If she did indeed upload From .
    ig Bend it was probably through a private wifi link or she got lucky and got a good signal which is again rare. Her car was seen on camera in Redding in the evening on the 23rd, which doesn’t make sense if she was headed home to Reno. At least it’s not the route I would take unless I had a compelling reason to. My question is did the camera capture the driver? Was there passengers? It’s mysterious. But I think she went missing after leaving Big Bend and I wish our tiny isolated little community wasn’t being blown up like this.
