Thanks for posting you guys. I hope she is found safe and I will keep my eyes and ears peeled.
I am in Ellicott City, MD, about 10-15 miles outside of Baltimore City, and anywhere from 7-15 miles outside of Baltimore County. I've lived in this area of Maryland my whole life. Again, I wasn't raised in or around the immediate Bmore City area, but let me tell you, you don't have to be to know exactly why it's called "Body-more". I've gotten lost in my car in some JACKED-UP neighborhoods. The place is riddled with homicide, violence, drugs, and not-so -nice people. And frankly, there are some parts of Baltimore County, close to the city, that are not much better. I know all major cities are rough, but Baltimore is pretty awful. It's one place you definately do not want to wander alone in if you are a young female from out of town.
The house she went missing from is 6520 eberle drive. This neighborhood, while in the county, is ROUGH. It's the southern most point of Pikesville, which used to be a predominately (pretty much all) Orthodox Jewish neighborhood, but over many years has succumbed to crime and hoodlums coming in from Baltimore City, which is close by, right down Reisterstown Rd (140) past Northern Pkwy (going South). I've been to that area several times for Kosher baked goods, and my husbands family lives North of Pikesville, and most people know that once you pass the Reisterstown Plaza, it gets SKETCHY. Pikesville used to be a nice, safe community, but it's really gone by the wayside.
Prayers for her and her family. I hope she is safe.

It's been on the local news since she went missing, if I can remember. I was waiting for it to get posted here. I need to find out how to make my own threads, if allowed, when I hear someone is missing locally.

I'm about an hour away... Wish I had known sooner, even though we were out of town until a day or two ago. My thoughts/prayers are with the family that she is found soon...Fly high and free, Jhessye ~

And if you need help after your edit time has expired, mods can help...just click on the Alert/report post button & explain what you need.
From what I can tell, the local news has been covering Phylicia's story...I've been following since Dec.30th...the news stations in North Carolina have covered her story, too.
From what I've read & videos I've watched, her family has been very active getting out w/ flyers & talking to people on the street.
Listening to her mother's plea in the videos makes me wish I could do more for her.
Oh- almost forgot.
There's a FB page for Phylicia -

I should have explained better, I meant almost a week before they decided she might have been abducted. There is such a tendency to assume teenagers ran away, and with good reason - HOWEVER - it really makes it bad when the parents are telling them over and over they didn't and days later they agree that something might have happened. They loose too much valuable time.
ETA: Same thing when adults go missing.If there's hink....there must be stink.

I do feel for LE in cases of missing persons, as it is so easy to be wrong initially. I think they have to go with their instincts, case by case, and that can't be easy. I'm sure nearly all parents refrain from stating that there is a chance their child (or other loved one) left on their own, yet LE classifies so many people in this way. Is it as simple as if no proof of foul play, that is there only other option?
I am very scared for Phylicia, I don't think there is any chance she decided to take off while away for the holidays. I did see a brief story on HLN today, hopefully she will get more coverage.Just my opinion, of course.

No sooner did I walk in the house today after work, did I hear Phylicia's case on the TV that my husband had on in his man cave. I listened to Phylicia's mother being interviewed. That POOR woman. She looked at the interviewer the whole time, then turns, looks the camera dead in the eye and says to the perp, "We're gonna get you." You could just see her pain. Just terrible. Interview with mother:
I know parents are not supposed to show anger and are told to remain calm when speaking to the media in these matters, but I have to give her mother credit---that is EXACTLY what anyone would be thinking!!! How could you hide your anger. I was like, "THAT'S RIGHT, WE ARE GONNA GET YOU".
Here is the father's interview. According to him, she was very creative, bright, and active in school, loving music and dance.
This young lady had a bright future. She graduated high school early, model student, and was going to attend Towson University, here in Baltimore (Towson, MD), my alma mater).
This is very scary and I fear---very tragic.

This missing person case was in the local news very soon after she disappeared. It was on the news and in the paper, maybe by Wednesday, definitely by Thursday.
I don't have a link, but on the TV news they kept saying she was missing as of Tuesday at 1:30 pm.... then in the next breath they say that it is thought she left during the night to get something to eat. I'll see if I can find any of those old reports.
Police kept saying there were no signs of foul play. Now today they think it IS foul play and she was taken from the state. I don't think they were looking very hard, but the family has been very proactive, thank goodness.
I don't know the particular apartment complex where she was staying, but I grew up in north Pikesville ....and the neighborhood where she was, around Reisterstown Rd Plaza has been bad for at least 30 years - lots of drugs, holdups and some shootings in the area. As soon as I heard where she was, I thought foul play was involved. It has been speculated that she went to the shopping center to get something to eat. It would be very easy for her to run into trouble there - and it has been said that she does not know the area. I would never go there alone (or at night).

Here's a link to 1 of the early stories, that mentions she left in the middle of the night.
She does have her cell phone with her. I wonder if they have tried to track it?

here's one of the older ones - there's quite a few links in the Missing/Info & Support thread
Deena Barnes says she left Phylicia sleeping Tuesday morning when she left from her Northwest Baltimore apartment. Her sister’s boyfriend last saw the girl at 1p.m. Tuesday.
Phylicia’s last Facebook post at 11:30 a.m. mentioned being hungry.
The family wonders if she walked to the nearby plaza for food.
“She texted me while I was at work and asked me to come pick her up,” said Kelly Barnes, her half-sister. “I started calling her, texting her, leaving her voicemails, everything. And nothing.”
“My daughter’s friends came home,” said Russell Barnes, “and the door was unlocked and the music was loud. That’s all they can tell me.”
more here - including it was "confirmed" that Phylicia was seen & turned away from a homeless shelter...that turned out to be untrue.
info on the shelter sighting which was false - and I think this caused a delay in LE figuring out Phylicia has not left voluntarily / run away.
