Carl and Mike rushed to the spot where the other two guards were. The foliage was definitely disturbed. No one had touched the iPod on the ground. Carl pulled on a pair of latex gloves and took out a small baggie. He picked up the device and put it in the bag.
“Call the local police and get forensics out here. I'm going back to the room to see if Gabby can confirm this is Misty's iPod.”
Mike called into the central office, explained the situation, and told them to call the authorities. Carl went back to the dorm.
“Can you tell if this is Misty's?” he asked handing the iPod to Gabby.
“Looks like it.” She took the device and pushed the buttons through the plastic bag. One of Misty's favorite songs started to play. Tears welled in Gabby's eyes.
“It's hers. Where is she?”
“We don't know yet.”
Gabby crumbled into the older man's arms and sobbed.
