    6 days in raleigh? and no one was able to direct her to the 64 bypass? there is much more to this story and I don't think any of it should be considered news

    How long was she missing? Was she just lost for an hour or what? How can anyone read this and believe it to be a news story? I hope Santa brought her a GPS.

    In the words of one of my former Interview and Interrogation instructors, "That t)rd won't flush no matter how many times you pull the handle".
