Photos on a "help find Robyn" Facebook page feature Gardner's body ink, including a jungle-print design on her left shoulder and a Latin phrase tattooed over her right ribcage. Translated, it reads, "If I can't move the earth then I'll raise hell."
But the pretty, 5-foot-5-inch blonde was more reserved than the pictures suggest, according to Jones and Gardner's on-again-off-again boyfriend, Richard Forester of Rockville.
At Forester's home, where she often stayed, she took care of two cats, Kobe and Toonsy, and relaxed by watching travel and food shows on TV, he said.
"She just liked the drama of it," he said.
