"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.
In 1996 I moved to Woodstock, Illinois, after having lived all over the U.S. It didn't take long to get involved in my lifelong traffic crusade, because I noticed that many drivers, including too many police officers, routinely ignored traffic laws. My traffic crusade led to an appearance on ABC's The View, and two invitations to appear on Court TV followed.
I started my first blog on April 15, 2007, to address perceived problems with the McHenry County Sheriff’s Department and some local police departments. I have also advocated strongly for disabled students in Woodstock District 200 Special Education.
As a practicing hypnotherapist, I have a unique practice in this area, providing sessions to clients in the comfort of their own homes, rather than in a sterile office setting. I studied and worked with a retired D.O. who had begun using hypnotherapy in her California medical practice in 1950. Often, clients experience past-life events and relate them to current-life situations.
I ran for McHenry County (Ill.) Sheriff in the November 2010 General Election and came in Third with 5% of the vote. That’s the one and only time I’ve ever run for public office.
