Hi Don, she is married. I've added in a link to our previous coverage to give some additional context to the story.

I have been watching the I.D. Channel. One thing i don't understand. Is how come the apartment she shared with Ronald. Was never checked out .

It seems like this guy had control issues. And her family never thought that it was strange. And did not report her missing sooner. I think he had something to do with her being missing. And don't feel they will find her alive or her unborn child. Sorry to say that.
