Hope Ashley is found safe and sound soon.
If the above pic is her...there is no way she looks 13 to me...more like 23. Her face has maturity that's not seen in most 13 yr olds. And no way that she appears to be weighing 160.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.

I searched for any additional info on this young lady and found none... Any idea what has happened? I hope she made it home, I don't want her to be another statistic...
I answered my own question - I called Sumter county LE and spoke with the investigator, and as far as she knows, Ashley Ward is still missing.
I am going to contact this young lady's parents this week and offer to assist with a poster-distribution event...
Let's bring this young lady home!
