So many questions...
I originally posted this under Destructive Churches [board.culteducation.com
] but decided that former cult members might have more information to offer.
Have there been other cases of people who are deeply involved with questionable religious organizations simply vanishing? Do these groups have so much control over an individual that the person would willingly go to who-knows-where without mentioning it to any family members? Would a person who may be trying to escape a group simply go into hiding without telling any family members.
Please forgive my ignorance. My family and I are trying to understand this bizarre and horrible situation.
