Re: Just a thought...
Police system in Syria works in a hierarchical structure.. so if she was locked up in a smaller town division she would be transfered to a more central division all the way up until she reaches a big city.. takes time but this is the way it should work.. and it is highly unlikely that she would be kept in prison all this time without contacting her embassy.. no matter how bad her situation is, the Syrian police would never hold a foreigner that long without informing the embassy cos they know that this would cause a diplomatic crisis, which is something they're trying to avoid now since they're under the international hotspot (I'm Syrian Canadian also by the way)...
i don't know how likely this is, but the ibn wardan castle and the dead cities are not too far from the borders with Turkey (north).. don't know how far exactly (am not from that area), but maybe she was wandering off and mistakenly crossed the border to Turkey.. some of the Syrian Boyscouts did that a few years ago and they were held in detention in turkey for a while for trespassing.. I wouldn't stop the turkey channel if I were you.. it's a slim hope but no one knows...
best of luck.. we are all hoping for her safety..
