    Wasn't this the same girl that had a similar situation and was found in Greenville a while back?

    I have been there done that with my middle schooler climbing out windows, missing for days, etc. It was a living nightmare for several years. Kids today are so easily misguided and influenced.

    Finally a little good news. That sort of kid (esp. taking those kind of photos) is at high risk from predators, so happy she's back home. Hope she gets straightened out.

    ok, what's wrong with the second pic? -- comment

    It looks sexually provocative and not the best presentation of a 15yo who the media is pleading for us to be on the lookout for as a possible innocent victim...in short, bad PR. Honest reactions might made for a better second picture, maybe one in profile.

    She's a lovely girl and I will watch for her and call in should I see her. I imagine I would see someone more like the first pix, the one that clearly shows her complete face and hair without shadow.

    ok, what's wrong with the second pic? Just because it makes you feel....funny, doesn't mean the rest of the readers are that perverted.

    I'm not sure that second picture is wise....
