    Shouldn’t we wonder why it took Ataui’s live in boyfriend nearly two weeks before going public with the model’s disappearance?

    Didn’t something not register that she would leave without her cellphone, not make any contact with anyone, and in particular her live in boyfriend or family?

    Was the model on drugs, did she come to have an altercation, had she been depressed, threatened, feeling alienated from the world of modeling and its rigors, and why then did the model choose to check into hospital under a different alias? Why did the model check into hospital to begin with…?
