A connection

After receiving numerous emails suggesting a connection to a film called HEAD TRAUMA. I reached out and contacted the film maker Lance Weiler. Here's what he had to say.


I'm sorry to hear about HOPE if there is anything that I can do please let me know. To answer your questions there is a missing girl in HEAD TRAUMA and she is abducted in a scene by a Hooded Figure. After looking at your videos I thought it would be best to turn over to you what I have so that you can use it within your search.

The Jacket was purchased in the spring of 2003 for $45 dollars. We purchased two of them from a gentleman selling army surplus over ebay. They are air forced issued and were used in the late 80s and early 90s from what I was told.

The following are a number of stills that include the Hooded Figure and the girl within the film.

I sincerely hope that this helpful and if you need anything else please let me know.

I'm not sure if there is any correlation between Mr. Weiler's movie and Hope's disappearance but I don't want to leave any stone un-turned. I'm getting so close to the day that we were to be married. My stomach is knots and I can't sleep.

I know that I keep saying this but I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for all your hard work in searching for HOPE. For those who have carved time out of their busy schedules to help aid us in our time of need - thank you so much!

A conference call?

I was just notified that a conference call took place early Sat morning. The call was between a number of people searching for Hope and what could have been deep throat. By following clues from our videos people discovered a secret call in number and access code. From what I'm told the call lasted only a few minutes.

I received an email from a person that asked not to be identified, pointing to a myspace profile page owned by someone named "J". On the page was a strange video. A recording of the call that includes code and just a single image of who I'm sure is Hope. See below.

Can someone please help translate the code that moves up the screen and also the title of this video. I can't make out much in this recording but I'm sure that the voice must be Hope!

The air is clear and the birds are flying?

There are so many theories flying around the abduction of HOPE. Thanks to everyone for their feedback. I'm still sorting through everything.

Late last night I received an email that we believe came from Deep Throat. If you can figure this out please let us know. ASAP!

new video

After a number of long hours this past weekend we have finally finished the second video. This one proved to be problematic in the sense that it was difficult to capture into the computer. The time code on the footage was broken in a few places. It would hang the system up requiring us to work the tapes by hand.

The more we shifted through it running it back and forward the more we began to hear and see within it. We need your help to sort all of this out. I'm a bit dazed between the editing, expanding the search, and keeping work and school on track - it's becoming more difficult. I'm going to have to make a tough decision regarding school very soon.

Send us your theories, pictures, audio and anything else that you think will aid us in our search.

Save me?

Got word back, they don't teach gregg or any type of shorthand. So Hope wouldn't have learned it in school.

I know a lot of you have said the symbols look like gregg shorthand. That they spell out "save me" which gets me excited that Hope is still alive.

Thanks to all those who have been sending in theories and breakdowns of the footage. Special thanks to earthian for the following. Click the image to see a larger version.

earthian says: Maybe the squiggles aren't actually any kind of symbolic glyph or abstract graphical representation. Maybe they are trying to indicate something that is going on in the image. I got the idea when I noticed the large loop squiggle seems to like up with Connie's face.

Here's an enhanced capture of them two of them apparently eating cheerios together. Connie has some beverage in a mug with a flower with five petals on the side. In the background over Connie's head is a frame picture, but I can't really make it out.

And here's the sequence of frames with the squiggles. One thing that struck me is that the vertical loop seems to outline the side of her face, while the horizontal mark is basically aligned with her nose in each frame. The doodles overlap just whatever in the background, but scrupulously avoid overlapping her face. U might just be that they show up better against the dark background, but I'm not prepared to rule anything out at this point.

These ones are cropped and numbered, but otherwise untouched.

People have said that they hear other voices when I hold up the tape recorder and play back Hope and Connie's phone conversation in video one. It sounds like something but we could use your help.

Also at first we thought the latest message on the hotline was someone pranking but I've been getting numerous emails from people who seem to hear

Some say strings of numbers and others say phrases

A few have offered to clean up the audio. Is there anyone who could provide a before and after. Also if you could share how you did it that would be amazing.

We're getting close to finishing another video and should have it up any day now. Lastly, we have received close to a thousand comments. I'm trying to go through them and as soon as I can I'll post them.

Thanks for your continued support.

Wow the response has been overwhelming. With so many people viewing, passing and searching through the footage word is spreading about Hope.

What came in yesterday...

optomit says
"The symbol at frames 3270-3279 looks like shorthand to me. It could be Gregg shorthand, but I cannot read it. The horizontal line with the circle at the end could mean 'money'. I assume that Hope could write shorthand, if she is studying journalism?"

HugoZ says
"Are you sure that is short hand notation? It looks like images you get from AFM microscopy of protein folding. notice the first and last stage in the folding of this prion to view click here.
the prions are associated w/ brain diseases.

I'm not sure if Hope knows any shorthand but tomorrow I'll call down to the communications department to see. Have to look into the prions thing. If anyone has more knowledge on how this could be related I'd love to know.

Other tips - a number of people saw significance in 3:07.

3. 0. 7
three zero seven

and a few people saw a connection between the recurring time of 3 o'clock and felt it could have some occult significance.

At this point I'm open to any and all possibilities

Here it is

Well it took a few days longer than we expected but here it is. The following video is a the first in a series. What is interesting is the more I comb through the materials the more strange things I find within the frames. I'm sure there is a connection between these tapes and Hope's abduction.

The more people who see these the better and if you find anything in the videos please let us know. All these efforts will give me something to take back to the police who are moving so painfully slow.

Special thanks to myspace and Stage 6 for their support.

first video coming Monday

Been working with Tom on editing together Hope's footage. It's been taking longer than I would like due to my work load. Trying to balance work and school has been difficult over the last few weeks. But we are close to launching the first in a series of videos. Our goal is Oct. 1st.

We've been noticing elements within the video. They appear to be strange symbols. Been trying to figure out what they mean. If you know what it means or have any idea what type of symbol it is please drop us an email

taking matters into my own hands

Well it's been almost three weeks since I turned over the tapes to the police and they still haven't viewed them. I've decided to take matters into my own hands. I can't sit back and wait for someone to find Hope.

With the help of my friend Tom, I'll be editing together the tapes that "Deep Throat" sent me. The tapes include Hope's movies, footage of someone watching her and a ton of creepy shit. I'll be posting them online. I've started to contact some sites to see if they'll help to spread the word and bring some attention to this case.

Not sure how to phrase this so I'll just come out and say it. Hope's mother Connie tried to take her own life on Sunday. She digested a cocktail of pills and now she's in a coma. Now I've never gotten along with Connie, she's a troubled woman. I sent some flowers to the hospital but not really sure what else I can do.

thank you

This past weekend was a tough one. Hope and I had made plans to travel south down the coast for an end of summer vacation. I can't believe it's been two months since she disappeared. It rips my heart out daily.

On a more positive note - to everyone who has been sending mail, THANK YOU so much for your support it's been overwhelming. Ever since channel 13 ran the segment about Hope and our efforts to find her, we have received an outpouring of emails, letters and phone calls.

Thanks to Ned for setting up a myspace profile and for helping out with this blog. I owe you big time.

I've been calling the police daily to see what they think of the tapes but I haven't heard anything back yet. I'm going to call again tomorrow and my goal is to have some type of answer prior to labor day.

It's Hope!

ALL THE TAPES ARE HOPE'S!!!! I almost fell out of my chair when I placed the first tape in the camera. And there she was - Hope was on screen. From what I can tell so far these are all the tapes that she shot while she was at her mothers.

I called detective Becker today and I could barely contain myself as I explained what I'd received in the mail. So Tom and I are copying the tapes now and then shipping everything off to the police.

What's strange is that there is footage of someone watching Hope. It's creepy. Also some of what Hope's mom was doing was down right disturbing. The police don't want me to show anything to anyone especially not online.

Today is the first happiness that I've felt in a long time. I know in my heart that Hope is still alive!

Hope's birthday

Today is Hope's birthday. She is 23 today. I sang happy birthday this morning to a picture of her and couldn't get all the way through. I called out of work and will most likely skip class tonight.

This afternoon I received a strange package. The return address just said Deep Throat. There are a number of unmarked tapes inside and few strange notes. I don't have a camera but Tom said I could borrow his. I looked up Deep Throat online and it is both a porn film from the 70's and also the name that had something to do with watergate.

Here's what I found on wikipedia
"Deep Throat is the pseudonym given to Deputy Director of the FBI William Mark Felt, Sr., who was the secret source who leaked information about the involvement of U.S. President Richard Nixon's administration during the Watergate first break-in and subsequent events that came to be known as the Watergate scandal."

pissed off

Today I got a call from the detective handling the case and the call ended with me screaming at the top of my lungs. The police have been driving me nuts since the beginning. Their slow and there hasn't been any progress. I've been considering bringing on some type of private investigator to help. Something anything to help get Hope home. Just typing this is pissing me off and now my stomach is upset. I have to go lay down.

Wednesday, July 25, 2007


It's been four weeks since I last spoke to Hope and the police have nothing. The biggest lead they had Louis Kelly offed himself when they showed up at his place to question him. They found some weird things in his house but they haven't shared any of the info with me. All they say is that it's under investigation and they are considering all the possibilities. What that means who the hell knows. They've been using it since Hope disappeared.

I'm so frustrated and depressed. My parents suggested that I cancel the wedding but I can't bring myself to do it. I just know we're going to find her and that we will be married on Oct. 20th. Hope is my true love and god I feel so empty without her. She's my soul mate. I refuse to give up.

Hope is missing

I've started this blog in an attempt to get the word out about my finance Hope Wilcott who has been missing since June 27th. She traveled back home to visit her mother who she feared was in trouble. We spoke a number of times over the course of a week but I haven't heard from her since the morning of June 26th.

The police have be involved and it feels like they are moving so slowly. It feels like they aren't taking it seriously. A friend suggested that I start this blog both as a way to spread the word and also as a way to feel like I had some control over the situation. Thanks for the advice Pam! I really do want this help but I would love nothing more than to have the next blog entry say that Hope has been found!

It's getting late and I'm tried.

I miss u Hope!
