One Possibility

This is just a thought but do you know if the authorities have checked out the northeastern part of Syria near the Euphrates River? From what I understand, it's like a big refugee camp with people from all around the area. Because it's very remote and impoverished, also surrounded by desert, if she were taken there I imagine it would be very difficult for her to communicate with anyone.
I wish you the best.

Re: One Possibility

Where'd you get that idea?

First of all, the northeastern part of Syria, al-Hassakeh and Qamishli, are not particularly close to the Euphrates River. Nor are they anything like refugee camps; the people in and around Qamishli are predominantly Kurdish, and Assyrian and Armenian Christians, with more Arabs around al-Hassakeh and further south. They're not refugees. It's not desert, either, but plains with a heavy amount of agriculture. It might be an infrequently visited corner of the country, but it isn't exactly "remote". Also, there is little reason she'd end up in a predominantly Kurdish and Christian region if she went missing in Hama (a predominantly conservative Sunni Arab region).
