She already has a copy so I would repost the book now!

I think it is probably just as likely that the book was returned because the person was AWOL and the system marked the book received due to inactivity. Once an account misses too many transactions, the system will place them on Hold.

I would probably send one more PM stating that you will give them until X date to respond and then you will be reposting the book.

Sounds likely that the member is no longer active, or already has the book.  The very most I would wait is 7 days, but given your circumstances and the time already lapsed even that is optional.
