    Praying she is alive and well and can be brought back to her family and friends unharmed. I am sure they are frantic not knowing where she is.

    When they do catch him, the courts should give him 50 years in prison. I hope she will be OK and alive.

    Praying for the safety and life of this young woman, and praying they find this guy before he hurts her or anyone else.

    God bless.
