My Sister, Nicole Vienneau, Has Gone Missing in Syria|

"I was only able to rule Nicole's boyfriend out because he had already told me that the RCMP checked his passport to make sure he had never visited Syria. Of course, he could have made that up too...you see where this can lead?"
Matt I know this is a very difficult time for you, your family , the boyfriend and their friends. However to insinuate that the boyfriend might be involved in some way is insulting. He loves and cherishes her and is grieving deeply. I'm sure there isn't a moment that goes by that he doesn't think about her. Please be careful what you say in these difficult times as words can often hurt more than actions, PLEASE KEEP IN MIND "THE BOYFRIEND'S" FRIENDS & FAMILY READ THIS BLOG DAILY...
SINCERELY CONCERNED FRIENDS

Re: The Boyfriend
I've already responded in the main blog but I wanted to add here that the only reason it came to my mind is that Gary has been telling the story of his original report to the RCMP and how hew was immediately the suspect - they grilled him as much as they asked about Nicole. It has repeatedly come up in our conversations (and we've had a lot over this past week) that the first suspect is always the boyfriend/husband/ex-boyfriend/ex-husband and that it was perfectly natural for the RCMP to ask him these things.
Gary is not a suspect - neither are many of the others mentioned. As you say, he loves and cherishes Nicole and is grieving deeply.

Re: The Boyfriend
Don't worry about the boyfriend comments too much Matt. I read your comments as a metaphor and got where you were coming from. I also interpreted that he and you had discussed this very thing, and were both struck by just how bizzare the whole thing is. And you were sharing that.
Unfortunately words spoken on the web can easily be misinterpreted.
Fortunately the web is also doing good, in allowing you to reach so many people and get so much help in the search for Nicole.

Re: The Boyfriend
The thing about /some/ police is, oh I just have the impression that they automatically suspect the person coming to them because it's the easier thing to do. Woman filing a sexual assault report? Is it easier to grill her to see if she's lying so they can write it off, or to file it and then drag their asses out to do scene and stuff? Concerned Parents? Tell them their kid ran away. Partner missing? We think you are responsible and are just covering it up with an advance phone call.
Maybe it isn't...malicious, maybe they've just been trained to examine everything, and when all the everything they have to start with is the person in front of them, it can be a stumbling block towards finding justice.
Is it possible for you to get the attention of the people in charge, Google, or whatever people is it, that have access to satellites that covered the area, to start looking at the footages over it the day she disappeared? Satellite images are collected everyday, hers could have slipped under the radar if nothing happened 'on screen', or no one was looking at it at the time. If she went pass tourist heavy areas, it will all the more be likely that her images would be in a variety of cameras somewhere, in the corners, etc.
You can also look up, if you could, what tour groups (companies) were in the area the day of her disappearance, maybe the tourguides would remember something?
I wish you luck.
