    Becky Rios Rodriguez is the name she used for school registration. Her mother withdrew her from school at the end of the semester. She planned to send the girl to Puerto Rico to live with the girl's biological father. Apparently the girl did not want to go. I do hope she calls her mother soon.

    Thanks for posting the links to a story with better information. I hope she is found safe and unharmed. I can't imagine what her mother is going through.

    WRAL, there are not enough details provided for anyone to know if they have seen this young lady or not. Additionally, other sources (including the Fayetteville Observer)state her name is "Becky Lynn Rodriguez Rios". When a report includes a request for information of the whereabouts of a missing person, it helps to have detailed, accurate information.

    I am praying for her safe return, and that she is alright. (Yes, Please post a picture...this will greatly help in knowing who exactly we are looking for, I can never understand how the media can post a missing persons alert without some sort of picture. I am sure a 16yo girl must have plenty of photos that could be posted. I have daughters, and they are forever taking pics of themselves & their friends.)

    They want us to look for blue jean shorts and white shirt !!! She doesn't have a photo, height, weight, distinguishing marks, color hair, etc ???? Greef.
