I am "leaning" towards thinking the phone was not very significant. When it was first found, everyone of course got real excited, and the Bobo's expressed relief that this was a good sign. But this was just of many things that as time ticked by, proved to be not a help to solve the case. Some imagined pictures were on the phone that would cause a 'game changer', but I don't think it did. And I do NOT think this was why the searches ended.<quoted text>
To what you just said I have been told a story that would very much support what you said as in the find. There are several versions so which to believe I wouldn't know. I thank you kindly for your response.
After the SIM card was examined, my guess that all that was on it were various photos Holly had taken on it earlier, and whatever other info was on it was examined, certainly did not help authorities to find her. I also doubt that the perp had called her, or, at least he wasn't anyone who wasn't already on her phone call list. I am even questioning if she had it on her when she was attacked and abducted. If it was, her perp did not let her use it. Either he threw it out later, or, it was left behind at the house and someone later decided to toss it after removing the SIM card.
