While the missing persons report on Porter was filed on the 5th, the Canon City Daily Record quotes Porter's mom, Rene Jackson, as saying she's actually been gone since June 3. In a June 11 article, Jackson told the newspaper Porter and her boyfriend had spent the night at the Castle Rock Inn in Castle Rock on June 2. However, Porter is said to have been upset that her boyfriend was moving out of state and traveled to Westminster on the 3rd to stay with what's described as "a male friend" with whom she'd gone to school.

CBS4 identifies that friend as Waide, seen in the following Facebook photo:

Porter's car was found abandoned at Waide's apartment building; it's been impounded. As for Waide, the Daily Record reports that he initially told police Porter had received a phone call at about 11 p.m. on June 3 and split. According to him, he last saw her leaving in a light-colored truck.

Since then, Waide has placed numerous items about Porter on his Facebook page. For instance, he shared the following poster on June 6 under the line "Please share this. We just want to know she is safe. We miss her very much:"

Hopefully she is found. I disagree with this reports "objectiveness" you have this guy basically convicted with your report despite no hard evidence that hes guilty. He might be but that's not journalism. Just saying.

Good work by the PD. Let's hope the court follows through and he spends an eternity locked in a cage where he belongs.

Yes, I see that he did confess to murdering her, and, he disposed of her body in a dumpster! If you see his facebook page, he keeps asking for people to find her.

It is a classic story. Her car is in a parking lot close to his place. He thought he could get away with murder. She was a very small girl and he was ex-military, so he could have easily thrown her in a dumpster.
