    Close her myspace account. These kids should not be exposed to this crap. This is probably where she met "her boyfriend".

    I agree with K-town, we never hear the results of finding these kids. What gotten into these kids leaving home? It's dangerous but my heart goes out to the family and I pray the girl return home soon or found.

    This is a very good friend of my daughter's. We told the family that she had been talking, on Friday, about spending the weekend with her "boyfriend". I am very worried about her. She spent nights at my house and is a very loving, respectful and kind hearted young lady.

    I hope they find this young lady soon and pray that she is ok...But this is the last we will hear about this story if its like all the other amber alerts that u post we never hear if you find these young children or not...my prayers go out to the family for her safe return
