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

I have this deep, sincere feeling she's not even in Syria. I know you checked the borders and if she crossed over to Turkey and there was no luck there. But something tells me if she was abducted or kidnapped, her taker wouldnt do it and stay in Syria, let alone in Hama (it's too close for comfort).
With all these weeks going by and no sign of anyone seeing her/noticing her, it just seems too far fetched that she would still be in Syria or around the areas you're checking. I know it's the most sensible thing to do, but if i was abducting someone i would make sure to take them as far away from the place where i found them.
Now, that's just my guess...cause i cant imagine she got lost and i almost know for certain she didnt escape!
Have you ruled certain options out?! Have you investigated or read about what happens when someone goes missing?! What's been said?!
I am sorry if this post has caused you pain to think of the worst. I am just trying to help. I pray for the best!
Syrian border controls are relatively good, though open at times to anyone with enough US currency. There is definitely a possibility that she was taken out of the country, but there's nothing we can do to follow up on that. We can't go into Lebanon or Iraq and randomly begin asking people, we need a lead or trail that points us in that direction and gives us a place to start.

Thinking about it, I think it is very plausible that if she was abducted that she may be in Iraq. There are so many Iraqi refugees in Syria some of whom may belong to groups interested in Western hostages to pressure their countries. However, the thing is they always announce themselves and make demands.
