Larissa behaves strangely
Belshay didn't believe her friend had anything to do with Tim's disappearance and assured Larissa that the police were just following procedure. The two friends talked about search warrants: when Belshay said police would have the right to search the home even if Larissa were away on her planned vacation, Larissa seemed unnerved and asked Belshay to come over to watch Tyler while Larissa went to the office "to take care of some bills" before leaving for Missouri. When Larissa did not return after a few hours as they had discussed, Belshay called her, and Larissa told her it was ok for Belshay to leave Tyler at home.
The following Monday, Belshay was talking about the strange disappearance with co-worker Leslie Fichera, who offered an odd story about a weekend meeting with Larissa. Fichera recounted that Larissa had called her that Sunday and told her to rent a moving truck so Larissa could move a rototiller. Fichera had done so, but had been puzzled when she later saw Larissa driving the truck on the opposite side of town from Larissa's home.
