  • I used to live in Briceland and used to pick her up hitching back and forth to town I tried to call both numbers and no one answered. Can’t get info if no one answers. Pretty sure she lives in a cabin in China Creek .

    A woman who looked a lot like Ellen was across street from Chevron station in Trinidad tonite at 8:45 pm. Wearing Red ball cap and red jacket with a pack beside her. Waved at me twice as I crossed Street to station and back. Did not get close enough to be sure, but similar facial features, hair, and build. Good luck.
