Sandy asked:

So what happened? Was she kidnapped or did she fall into a hole? The last page seemed to imply that she was kidnapped.

Regina Kane In my opinion, she was kidnapped. It doesn't make sense that there would be an exhaustive search which found nothing and an eleven-year-old that could make up such a convincing story and trick the professionals. I think she had a selective memory, riddled by guilt because of her anger against DJuna at the time. The mind does funny things (remember the last episode of Mash when Hawkeye thought a chicken had been strangled on the bus?).
