    Why can't WRAL post a picture? It’s ridiculous to ask for the publics help without posting a picture. Should we as responsible citizens report every white teen ager we see to the police?????

    If I lived in Fayetteville and was a woman I would run away too. To many women getting killed. It took a month for someone to start looking for her? Or at least it took a month for the media to make it public. Seems no one is to concerned maybe she has reason to leave. I hope she is safe and warm.
