Saw this shared on FB this morning, also observed she had several mutual friends in the community, so thought it was worth a share here.

"Kelsey Faye Weaver, from Mangun, Oklahoma, has not been in contact with her family or husband after she began storm chasing yesterday.

Reportedly, Weaver was with another unnamed male occupant at the time of the chase yesterday.

Online reports indicate Weaver was last seen wearing jeans, turquoise cowgirl boots (possibly Ariat’s), black long-sleeved v-neck shirt. She was also driving a blue four-door car, with a “Storm Chaser” sticker on the trunk. The vehicle is possibly a Ford model.

Last known contact with Weaver was made from Bowie, Texas – as she was heading towards Decatur, TX."

I hope nobody takes this the wrong way, but I wonder what lead the mother - or anyone - to think that she was missing? I know from my past experience chasing in Texas I sometimes went days without talking to anyone in my family. A lot of times cell phone reception was iffy, at best, and wouldn't even allow me to make calls. Either way, I'm glad that she is safe.

Location sharing for family members is useful for this type of thing, several options are available (Google being the easiest) and you can turn it off when not needed.
Totally, I have an iPhone and have location sharing enabled and shared with my brother so he can just pull up the "Find my.." app on his phone and see my exact location. I have no idea if this will ever come in handy, but at least I know he can easily pull it up and find my location if needed.

I too felt this story was a little fishy. You have a married female out with an "unnamed" male occupant. She's reported missing before 24 hrs even pass from her departure to chase. If they had car trouble, there's a town within walking distance a few hours from anywhere in the area they were in. If it was a lost or broken cell phone, surely they could find a way to make contact. I'm gonna guess there's way more to this than the public is ever gonna know.

The outlet that came from is a benchmark fake news outlet. The guy that runs it has had more than his fare share of trouble, both in and out of the chasing community. Dude lives like 20 minutes from me.
