for sure. So on this particular night, SD is running late now. Natalie waits for 15 minutes, then a half hour, then a full hour. But there was no sign of SD anywhere. She's not picking up her phone. She's not answering her texts. And even though this is weird behavior for SD, Natalie is telling herself, you know, don't panic. She could have had something come up at work. These things happen. And plus, like, if anything was really wrong, like if s he was in the hospital or something. Natalie knows that she had heard about it by now. STS husband Brandon totally would have called her. So Natalie just kind of finishes up her wine. And as she's leaving the restaurant, she kind of gets this idea like, You know what? I'm just gonna drive by her house and just, like, take a look, make sure everything's good again. This is a small town, and when she drives by, she sees the lights on like normal. But she also sees Brandon's truck in the driveway, which strikes her as a little bit odd, since she spent enough time over there at the house to know that s T usually is the one who parks in the driveway. And Brandon normally parks out on the street. But again, not that weird. And I mean, if s he wasn't home yet. You can see that. You know why Brandon maybe wouldn't want to park on the street. Your car can get dinged up. Whatever right? And like, maybe he was planning going out and then moving when she came back, or I mean, really doesn't matter, right? Exactly. So again, this isn't anything that's keeping her up at night. But the next morning, when she still hasn't heard from her best friend, things are starting to feel off. Like she can't deny that she's starting to get nervous. She knows SD doesn't act like this, and she knows she's going to be worried until she knows her best friends. Okay, which I can totally get. I don't want to know. My siblings are okay, my friends, my husband. Otherwise it just kind of like eats at you. So at about nine a.m. This is Wednesday morning. Natalie stops by STS workplace. She's a receptionist at this car dealership in town. She is always there by 8. 30 on the dot at the absolute latest, but when Natalie goes inside, she sees something shocking. STS desk is empty, and when one of the sales guys hurries over to answer one of the phones that's ringing, he tells Natalie that SD never showed up for work that day, and more than just not showing up like it's not like she called in, she was a no call. No show. Oh, Natalie's heart immediately plummets. This isn't right. It's one thing not to show up for dinner. It's a total. Another thing to miss work without even calling. And that's when this memory creeps into Natalie's mind. This memory that for a second gives her relief last Tuesday when they were having dinner, she remembers, that s he said something about needing to have an important talk with her husband, Brandon, and that if the talk didn't go well that she actually might go stay with her sister Bethany for a bit. So does Natalie called Bethany? Well, more than that, I mean, she wants to act like, at this point, put eyes on her best friend even like just check in and make sure everything's okay, because if she's at her sister's. It means they have this condo and it didn't go well. So Natalie goes over to Bethany's house, hoping against hope that maybe she'll CSC's car in the driveway. But it's not there when she pulls up and when she talks to Bethany, who's home, she says that she hasn't even seen SD in like the last week. Hasn't even heard from her in a day or so. And here's the thing. Bethany says that she knew Esty was upset about something going on with Brandon, so she'd actually been keeping the guest room ready just in case. Like so, she had the same conversation with SD, as Natalie did, but she hadn't heard anything about her sister coming over like nothing to make her worry. And again, she really hadn't only been talking to her for like a day. So Bethany wasn't on high alert or anything. And at that moment, this moment, when they both realized they haven't talked to her, they hadn't seen her. That's when they both knew that they had no other choice. They had to go to the police. Now, Natalie Bethany, don't bother calling 911 I mean, they go directly down to the station and tell them that they want to report a missing person. Now they get the usual like questions. How long has this person been gone? Do you have any reason to think that they might be in danger or that they would want to leave themselves? And Natalie kind of shares this look with Bethany and they both not a little bit. Nathalie tells the officer everything about how they've been looking for her, how it's totally unlike her to not show up for work or just to ghost people. And Natalie also tells the officer something else. So you remember that important thing that she wanted to talk to Brandon about that she had mentioned to Natalie at dinner, mentioned to her sister? Yeah. Now, even though she didn't outright say the word infidelity estimate it pretty clear that she had been thinking that her husband, Brandon, had been cheating on her. And so that Tuesday before, she said sometime in the next week, she was finally going to confront him about it
