MARI HAS BEEN FOUND!
According to findmariruddy.com, Mari was found alive, but unconscious & her family is asking for privacy at this time.
http://www.findmariruddy.com will continue to update us on her status.
Please send Mari and her family lots of love, prayers & healing vibes!!!
Mari has type-1 diabetes and wears an insulin pump. Her phone and other belongings were found in her home. She left in her car, a dark green 2002 Honda Civic, Minnesota license plate #102-LNC, with a bike rack on top and a red Namaste bumper sticker.
Mari’s family fear that she may try to harm herself and appreciate any help locals can provide in search efforts. She may have gone to a place with spiritual significance, beauty or seclusion. Please contact Mollee at 952-406-0081 to volunteer. You can also join the search effort by connecting with this Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/172257126284014/?notif_t=group_r2j

According to this article on TwinCities.com: St. Paul police have received a missing persons report about Ruddy, said Sgt. Paul Paulos, police spokesman. At this point, police don't regard her disappearance as suspicious, he said.
Personally, I think that Sgt. Paulos needs to get on the ball and search for Mari in ernest! I googled the Saint Paul Police Department and called them. I found out his direct line and left him a very detailed message as to why he needs to look for Mari. And I suggest you do the same. Sargent Paulos’ direct line is: 651-266-5639. Call him and let him know your thoughts!
The Saint Paul Paul Police Department can be found on twitter @sppdPIO and on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/stpaulpolice - Reach out to them and let them know that they need to find Mari!
I was feeling helpless, so I reached to several law enforcement officers in my local area and one of them has some Twin Cities Law Enforcement contacts and he's reaching out to them to see if they can get more people on the search for Mari. I recommend that you reach out to police in your area and see if they can reach out across state lines on Mari’s behalf.
I interviewed Mari for this blog in October of 2009 and found her to be kind enthusiastic and funny - Mari is good people and like the entire diabetes online community, I’m really worried about her .
Please share the above info and the FindMariRuddy.com website with everyone you know - And send positive thoughts to Mari and her family!
