Ok, so when I am working on a case; sometimes strange coincidences start to occur in my life. A strange “coincidence” happened last Saturday. I had been reading some of the articles about Ayla prior to going into town. I had put my phone on silent because I was at an event and didn’t want to disturb anyone with my phone ringing.
When I returned home I checked my phone and I had received a text message. The text was from a phone number I did not know; it wasn’t local. I went ahead and read it; it was telling me about a meeting to be held on Sunday. It just seemed really odd; but I put it off to being some sort of mass texting.
I decided to Google the area code it was: 207. Hmmm Maine! LOL I’m used to my “coincidences!” I then proceeded see if I could figure out where in Maine, from the information in the text.
I am not going to post the man’s complete cell phone number because that would not be appropriate, due to the circumstances. He thought he was texting a friend or acquaintance.
The beginning of the number that texted me is 207-229-6xxx. And the text said:
“If you are an early riser on Sunday, there is a good meeting at 9:00 am at Mercy Hospital on State St. in the Upper Auditorium located at the sub basement level 2.”
So, the text was about a meeting in Portland, Maine!
It really started bugging me to know what kind of meeting it was, so I texted the number back and asked.
I did receive a response from this person stating what type of meeting it was. It seems it was a type of AA Meeting.
Because the person texting back used his friend’s first name; I realized it was not a mass text. So, of course, I let him know it was a wrong number.
So, that is my strange coincidence! A text from Maine in the same area the father had once lived and Ayla’s mother still resides. Any thoughts on this?
Please keep Ayla’s picture and information on your websites and blogs! Ayla you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
