    Thanks tiblet for your comment. Do some of you have nothing better to do than count the number of alerts issued or be WRAL's personal spell checkers. Seriously, how many comments have to be made about the misues of a word? As far as "knowthefacts" goes, how do you really know why she is on the streets unless you're there yourself? And anyways, even if she has a drug problem, if she is in danger, then she needs help.

    how about everyone take a look at her pic, keep your eyes open, and call police if you see her. You don't need to know her life story to do that...do you?

    If "knowthefacts" is correct, are they going to issue alerts for every prostitute on drugs that no one has seen for a few hours? I feel sad for this womens situation, but she made her choices in life. I dont believe this is what the alert system was designed for. People will become conditioned to seeing them and they will be ignored, which does no one any good.

    She has a drug problem and roams the streets w/men if you know what I mean to find her next fix. Just pray she is found safe.

    aaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, sure she does, give her a silver alert! or at least a bracelet!

    Someone knows exactly where she is.

    Most missing women are "endangered". How descriptive!

  • shortcake53 May 20, 2009

    For heavens sake, dont be 10 minutes late coming home from the grocery store or you will be declared "missing and endangered". What criteria is being used to determine this? was she threatened, is she nuts, was she kicking and screaming the last time anyone saw her? how do authorities expect help with no details given?
