    Just reading the story bring chills to me. Because first, if I had a small child (which she does) how can I just not call and talk with my child, knowing this child is worrying about his mom. and to supposely call and say hey dad/family I'm ok, you can stop worrying about me....come on now you don't handle nothing this serious like this.

    Was there ever a phone call, or is someone covering up another crime and don't want the police to investigate? Has the phone records been checked? I hope she is found soon and she is safe.

    Plus I think if you are that concern for this young lady, then get a group together and talk to her father and then start looking for her. Pass out flyers etc. You really don't want to do that but you are concern!

    you dont know what i have done or havent done. it is so funny to read what is important some people would say in certain stories. i think you're just running your mouth just to have something to do. i know most def if there was a different twist you wouldnt be saying the end so quick.

    By the way, she did call and talked to her father. Re-read the story.

    I read true crime stories all the time and I do not believe this is the case here. When she called home, the person that answered the phone call would have picked up something if there was something wrong, say in her voice. But it still remains the young lady do not want to be found and is grown. Let her be. If her life is in danger, well then, that would be another story. Pray that it is not. We should not live in fear on a daily basic. That would not be good. God is still in control.

    dataclerk, i know this pertains to tv but um havent you ever seen stories even true ones on lifetime when kidnappers have their victims to call home to say they are ok? what makes this any unsual?

    Obviously she is not being held against her will when she call her family member and they did not pick up anything unusual. The police probably wants to question her and I feel some of you are jumping the line a little to quick. Yes, I know a lot of young girls are still missing, but remember this one call home and said "stop looking for me." You cannot make a grown woman return home if she chooses not too. Thats the problem in the world today. Parents not letting go of their grown children whicb is now call controlling.

    I'm glad the Durham PD still considers her missing until they hear from her, to their satisfaction, that she is OK. We don't know that she isn't being held against her will and her captors made her make that phone call in hopes the search would be called off. Maybe she left of her own accord, may she didn't. We shouldn't be too hasty in judging.
