Searches started in the wooded area behind the home. Lead searcher told the media-
“It is a large wooded area. There’s a lot of debris and it encompasses a vast area,” he said. “We are utilizing K-9s, we are utilizing drones, we’re utilizing traffic. We’re utilizing a lot of different resources to be able to locate this child.”HTTPS://WWW.KANSASCITY.COM/NEWS/LOCAL/ARTICLE244146877.HTML
Locals and others online started questioning the story being told.
Many rumors circulated, such as her biological mother being in jail and her father hiding her, to his dealer friends having her (this is often mentioned with missing children, but does it ever turn out to be true?)
Many claim Olivia has not been seen for around two weeks and that some were aware that abuse was going on in the home.
All these rumours are in thread 1 in the group.
