Where in the World is Taylor Meyer?

10/20/08 – UPDATE – Taylor’s body was found at 10:30 AM today within about 100 yards of where she was last seen.  There were no obvious signs of trauma on her body.  The state medical examiner is on-site, trying to ascertain cause of death.   Here’s hoping they can quickly determine what happened out there that night.   Rest in peace, Taylor.

Taylor Meyer, Missing in Mass.

Norfolk, MA – Last Friday night, October 17, there was a house party in Norfolk, MA.   After a time, some of the revelers adjourned to a nearby airfield that had been abandoned for more than 10 years.   One of the underage gang was a pretty 17-year-old girl named Taylor Meyer.

No one has seen her since. 

The last time anyone remembers seeing Taylor is around 10 PM.   At some point, they claim, she “wandered off,” and no one saw her again.  But this is where the story gets truly strange.   Police report that she made a couple of phone calls that night.  In the last one she seemed pretty incoherent, but kept repeating the word “plane” over and over again.   Further, she was not reported missing by her mother until the following afternoon.

Now, I had some pretty wild times in my teenaged years, but if I wasn’t in my bed when my parents woke up the next morning, there would have been a mighty frantic call made to the police, let me assure you.  And that was before cell phones!  Imagine not being able to raise your teenage daughter on her cell when she doesn’t show up at home.   What a terrible thing to imagine.   Perhaps her mother was out and didn’t know she was gone, or thought she was at a friend’s home?    And I guess not one of her friends noticed she wasn’t with them when the party broke up for the night?  Who did she arrive with?  Why didn’t they notice her missing?   Something about all of this doesn’t sit well with me.

In any event, dogs, helicopters, and divers searched the area late Saturday and all day Sunday, but have found no trace of Taylor Meyer.  The area is dense, wildly overgrown, and full of marshy, boggy wetlands, so it’s a tough go in terms of searching.

Another bizarre twist to the story is that apparently a bunch of kids from her school district maintain an ongoing gossip website of sorts.  If you dig back three years to 2005, there are some pretty mean and inflammatory posts about Taylor from several of her classmates.  It seems that — at that time — some folks definitely did not wish her well.   I’m confident the police are aware of that history, and will follow any leads they can in the investigation.   I’m also sure that 3-year-old gossip from a bunch of 8th graders is probably irrelevant today.  But in light of the mysterious circumstances of Taylor’s disappearance, it is worth considering.

Taylor is 5′ 8″ tall and weighs approximately 150 pounds.    Anyone with information about the disappearance is asked to contact the Norfolk Police Department at 508-528-3206.

Updates as the occur.   I know you will all join me in wishing that Taylor is found quickly and unharmed.
