Police are also searching for her missing car: A white 1997 Ford Escort, VA tag: JPC2848. ——————————————————————————– On the Monroe Park Campus of VCU, friends and family members hand out fliers with Taylor Behl’s photo, hoping one of the students passing by will recognize her face. Behl spent the weekend with her mother in northern Virginia and then headed back to campus Monday. Around 10 PM that night, she left her room at the Gladding Residence Center, grabbed her keys, ID, and a borrowed skateboard. She told her roommate she was heading out for a couple of hours. But, she never returned. The university is looking at the surveillance cameras from her dorm room and even searched her computer for clues. But, after nearly four days, there’s no sign of where she could have gone.
Behl’s mom says this is “not like her at all. She’s not a party girl. She’s not a drinker. She’s not a drug user. She’s very family oriented.” If you have any information about this case, please call (804) 828-1196.
