Rachel is 26, but she seems far younger in her blog posts. There are only 2 from last year, but you can see her maturity level and her interests. You can also see that she is interested in a specific boy, doesn't get along with her family, and suggests that she might run away. Obviously, a year old blog has nothing to do with today, but it still speaks to her relationship with her family and her willingness to 'rebel' and runaway. My worry is that if she didn't run away, there is very little anyone will do to search for her as a grown woman.
Oh, I got Rachele's blog site by searching her yahoo email address listed at the bottom of her FB account. On another note, she's been missing for 2 full days now and she only has 27 friends on FB. None of them have even mentioned that she is missing.

La Habra police spokeswoman Cindy Knapp said Rachele K. Kirk had been in Whittier visiting with family when they decided to go shopping at Walmart, 1340 South Beach Boulevard in La Habra.
Kirk argued with her father and walked off, according to Knapp. She was last seen about 2:30 p.m. heading westbound through the parking lot.
At the time, Knapp said family members thought Kirk had simply walked off to calm down. When she didn't return several hours later, relatives called police and filed a missing person report.

Facebook page for Rachele. Her brother states she had been of her meds for schizophrenia for a couple of months prior to her missing.
Rachele's facebook page. She appeared to be an avid game player until June 23th which lines up with the brother's story about the meds perhaps...

I found her Xanga blog through Facebook, which was updated in May.
It seems like she was living in a halfway house a few months ago. She talks a lot about running away and her family being too controlling.

Per Brother's post from October 5th, 2010, she was found safe.
Also found her current FB page.
thank goodness she's alright!"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style."
