Brian had been paying attention, too, and now joined Emily in Andy's cubicle. "I guess you can't call her cell phone. Would a text get through?"
"I sent one, but I don't know," Emily said.

"Would she've tried to contact us if she changed hotels?" Brian said.
"I don't know, this's never happened before," Emily said, trying not to sound exasperated. She had already thought all of this through before she dared say anything to anyone. So far no one was actually being helpful, but they couldn't know that.
"And where's Dave right now?" asked Ricardo. "Have they left El Salvador yet?"
