The strange disappearance of Janice Klein is partially solved; she was discovered alive last night. However, there are far too many questions remaining in this case. Where did she go? How did she get there? Why? Why is this story just so weird? The updates coming in regarding her odd disappearance are revealing some new details, but they only create more answerless questions.
She vanished for two and a half days under such suspicious circumstances that her case became a national spectacle. There were immediate claims that she had been suffering from migraines and may be "disoriented," but no details as to why. Last night when she was discovered in DFW airport, she was described as being severely dehydrated and disoriented. She was wearing the same clothes she had on when she vanished. Most confusingly, she had a train ticket in her pocket and made comments about riding a train, but there are no other details to clarify what she was talking about or where she may have gone.
Robert Klein says he doesn't know how Janice Klein made it to the airport or what she had been doing over the course of the nearly three days that she was missing. The details are just too shaky in this case to draw any further conclusions, but it's a good thing that she beat the odds and survived. It's not every day that these types of missing person cases end in a somewhat positive manner. More often than not, these cases end in tragedy, such as the disappearance and slaying of Karen Johnson Swift out of Tennessee. When they end in the missing person being found alive, well there's a lot to rejoice about. Nonetheless it seems that there is a lot to this story that isn't being reported and that's a shame. What on earth could have made Janice wander off, disoriented, in the state that she was in for nearly three days? Drugs? Mental illness? Trauma of some sort? Her husband says he believes that bits and pieces of the truth will come out eventually. Here's to hoping he's right.
