  1. Ha. Quick analysis: multiple piercings, including “belly,” check; tatoo, check; “glam shot” make up, check; younger than 16, check.

    Parents: “Out to lunch” and “out of control,” check.

    Bet mom and dad (or whoever had custody at the time) *tried* telling her “no” (for a change) … and … and … she ran away.

    Check out her boyfriends’ places.

    Or her pimp.

    Just kidding … about the pimp.

    • @brianansorge!! U real quick to make assumptions!! Get the fck out of here with ur negativity. You dnt knw shit!! She comes from a great family. & fyi who gives a fck abt tattoos & piercings tht dnt mean shit! Were looking for someones daughter, sister, cousin, friends. I knw damn well if it was someone u knew u would want everyones help & wouldn’t want to hear the bullshit!

      • Two very clever, cerebral responses from a couple of intellectual giants—who also happen to be anonymous cowards.

        Please feel free to fill us in on *all* the details regarding all the stuff that *does,* in your personal opinion, “mean shit” … since, apparently, you are such an expert on what *is* important!

        You know, like telling us all the circumstances regarding her disappearance … and her being “found,” when she is “found.”

        I’m sure there are just as many people who think that *you* are the ones being negative.

        So, if you call me a “jerk” and tell me to shut up and can I call you a *cretin” and tell *you* to “shut up?”

        Just asking.

        Never mind; it’s a rhetorical question [look it up].

        I’m through now. Rant away [I'm sure you'll have nothing but positive, enlightening and verifiable FACTS to add to the, uh, conversation! But, so far, NOTHING has been shared here, except OPINIONS—mine and yours]!

    • You are a jerk! Just shut the hell up! The young girls in my community don’t need your disrespect. Go troll somewhere else.

Feel like saying something about this?
