Grace : “It Doesn’t Make Sense…”
“I’ve been to Lake Seminole many, many times,” Grace said. “Dark, dark waters…if you look out on it, it’s very eerie looking. Even in the daytime, when you drive by and look out, it’s vast. You can’t even see the other side to it at some points. And the water looks black, even the daytime.”
Grace investigates Lake Seminole, the spot where Mike goes missing, the route he would have taken, even The Gibson Inn where the couple planned their romantic giveaway. Was it somehow linked?
“I don’t know how anybody boats on it, or hunts on it or fishes on it with all those stumps. And what’s under the water is scarier. There are gators there…This young dad, Mike Williams, goes out duck hunting early morning. He promises to come back because very important, it’s his anniversary! He and his wife already have one baby girl and they want to add to their family.”
Grace, a mom herself, is struck by mom Cheryl’s pain and her search for answers, the thought that in the space of one “normal” morning, you never see your son again? He’s just “gone?”
