Beth Bentley gone 205 weeks - goodbye, Beth

Beth Bentley has been missing for 205 weeks, ever since the week-end trip with Jenn Wyatt to Mt. Vernon, Ill. on May 20-23, 2010 (assuming there ever was such a trip).

What might assure anyone that such a trip really happened? Perhaps corroborating statements from three people who ought to know, for sure. That would be Jenn Wyatt, Ryan Ridge and Nathan Ridge. Ryan and Nathan were supposedly at the house outside Mt. Vernon to which Jenn and Beth drove late on the night on May 20, 2010.

But there are probably 25 or more other people who could provide investigators with information and tips. Maybe they did... maybe not.

In a month Beth will be gone four years. I had hoped that weekly articles would result in useful information to locate Beth.

The Woodstock (Ill.) Police Department apparently remains the lead investigating agency, even though it is more than 300 miles from the location where they believe Beth vanished. Many think that the Jefferson County (Ill.) Sheriff's Office should have investigated her disappearance.
