"Official" website now for the missing Beth Bentley
Today I came across a new website (or blog) labeled as the "Official Website - Help Find Beth Bentley". The site appears to have been established by the Rogers' side of Beth's family (her Arizona brother and father). You can view the new site at www.helpfindbethbentley.com/
The first postings were on January 19, and several posts have been added since the first day.
The site mentions the Woodstock Police Department and the CUE Center for Missing Persons, but not Crime Stoppers of Woodstock or CrimeStoppers for McHenry County. It contains information that has generally been set aside, such as she was last seen in Centralia, Ill. and that she was thought to have been headed for a 6pm train.
It seems more likely that Beth was last seen on Friday night, May 21, 2010, at the Frosty Mug in Mount Vernon, Ill., where a person not closely connected with her did last see her. Because little information has been released by police agencies in Woodstock or Mount Vernon, rumors persist as to her last-known whereabouts.
In addition to the "official" website, there are two active Facebook pages related to Beth's disappearance. The first one at one time had 7,600+ followers; that number today is 3,611. A second Facebook page has 695 followers.
