    I just do not understand why the delays in reporting these people missing. If it were me the 24 hour mark would be less than a second past and I would be on the phone making that call. Perhaps it was reported sooner but only told to the public now. But, if you want the public to help then it needs to be made known as soon as possible because in these instances every second counts. May God be with the family and may this young lady come home safely.

    Missing over 3 weeks and nobody noticed? When was she reported missing? If reported missing to police shortly after she went missing, why is it just now being reported in the media? Something is not right here.
