    For some reason the tag stuck with me, i was coming back to work after running an errand and was passed by a black mustang. I didn't have my phone with me, or i would have continued to follow the car. I did not get a view of the driver or occupants, but as soon as i got back to work, i did call the police listed above. I called back about an hour ago and they had no information as whether or not she had been located. I was told it was handed over to the N.C. Highway Patrol.

    Praying for her and hoping this wasn't a drug overdose.

    Such a beautiful person inside and out to be so tormented by deamons. As always, I wish her the best and pray for her friends and family who care so much about her.

    Gav (Gavin) is Mandy's young son.

    I heard that "Gav" is her son the she, unfortunately, recently lost custody of. I hope that she is found safe, and receives the help she needs (and hopefully wants) to get her life in order to be a great person and mother.
