Holly Marie Bruce vanished over 20 days ago from the Phoenix, Arizona region and still hasn't been located. Described as suicidal, the missing woman reportedly purchased a gun the day she disappeared. Since then, she has not used her credit cards or mobile phone, which is creating a foreboding feeling about this case to say the least.
While the search for Holly Marie Bruce continues, people who knew her are pooling together funds for a reward. One person is an anonymous customer at the business which employed the missing woman. On the other hand, private "Jeep clubs" are reportedly driving throughout the state of Arizona aiding in the search for her, but when will she be found?
It's the cool time of year in Arizona, and while there are many evergreens that do not change in the winter seasons, there is still a small window of opportunity for search until all of the spring foliage begins to overgrow. The wilderness in northern Arizona can be very hard to navigate when everything is growing, as it isn't necessarily the desert environment that "flat-landers" are used to. Hopefully there are some actual foot-searches of the wilderness going on for Holly Bruce right now, because it just seems silly that nobody would do that. Certainly there are, right?
And also, as negative as it may sound, detectives need to begin rounding up cadaver dogs for their searches. If this young woman was suicidal, purchased a handgun and vanished to never use her mobile device or bank accounts againÂ—chances are she probably shot herself. Her Jeep hasn't been found, she hasn't been found, and none of her assorted belongings have been found either, and that does not leave a good feeling in one's gut.
