Detectives are now trying to determine Merck's frame of mind as they trace her route from Athens, where she lived and worked as a vet tech, to Deerfield Beach, Fla., where her Honda CRV was discovered late last week, according to sheriff's office spokesman Deputy William Terrell. "There is no evidence that a crime has been committed," Terrell said on Tuesday. "At this point we know she is gone and we know how, she traveled to Florida and her car was left there. Why that happened is one of the things we are trying to determine."
On Tuesday, Aug. 21, Merck told her roommate and her supervisor at the vet clinic where she worked that she was leaving to go home to Kingsland. Merck boarded her dog in Kingsland on Thursday, Aug. 23, but when she did not arrive at her family's home her father filed a missing person report with police in Athens. Merck's name and description have since been entered into Georgia, Florida and national crime center computer networks, Terrell said.
"We are trying to backtrack with her life to try to understand what may have led her to do that; why the sudden disappearance," Terrell said. "That is the direction we are trying to move." Merck was scheduled to pick up her dog on Thursday, Aug. 30, but did not arrive at the boarder as police hoped she would. Instead, her family picked up the dog, Terrell said. "That's one of the things that is very worrisome; she's just gone. Since the 23rd nobody we know of has had any contact with her. It's very strange."
Look, here's the deal, the cops in GA and FL do not want the media involved in the Ivy Merck case at this time, for whatever reason, I do not agree, the most positive forward action would be for the family to deal with the media especially National TV News people.
It is a very big world out there and the more times the face of Ivy Merck is shown on TV like CNN Headline News, Nancy Grace, Inside Edition, AMW etc., or in a newspaper the more times someone will call in with a tip, just the way it is. Ivy Merck a white female, 5'1" tall and 115 lbs with brown eyes and dark blonde hair she fits a profile of about 12 other petite blonde females who have gone missing in the last 3 years from Bloomington Ind to Myrtle Beach SC and they all look-a-like.
On the same day, August 23rd, 2012, Crystal Morrison Prentice, age 31, from Kannapolis, North Carolina went missing, she was last seen around 1 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 23, walking on International Drive near the intersection of Davidson Highway right next to the entrnace ramp to I-85 in Concord NC after leaving work at Conextions Recruiting, see map CLICK HERE. Rick Morrison, Crystal's father contacted Concord Police on Friday morning to report her missing. Crystal is 5'2" tall and 100 pounds, with blonde and red hair, blue eyes and wear contacts. She has piercings in her eats and a tattoo on the back of her neck that says Kyson.
From: Concord, NC to: Athens GA area is about a 3 1/2 hour drive on I-85, see map CLICK HERE, Ivy Dawn Merck and Crystal M. Prentice are about the same size and weight with long blonde hair and both disappeared from an outside area near major interstate highways. When will the FBI profilers step in and connect the dots??
For over two years I have documented what seems like a never ending list of young petite white females with long blonde hair, all of which are about the same height and weight and look alike, who have disappeared, vanished without a trace, and now unfortunately there seems to be two more young woman gone, Ivy Merck and Crystal Morrison Prentice.
