Please feel free to copy and paste this to your walls so everyone can share, share and share it again. We want this story to get to as many people and places as we can get it for full exposure. While doing this we would like to push the petition for Skylar's law in hopes that in the future no other family will have do endure the heartache and anger that this situation has put us through. We have the full cooperation of law enforcement to proceed with everything that follows:
    On 7/7/12 I received a call from my husband Dave asking where Skylar was. He had come home for lunch and to leave the car for Skylar to take to work and she was no where to be found. I told Dave that she was probably shopping or swimming with her friends and to call her bestie. He did and when he contacted her best friend she stated she had not seen nor heard from Skylar. Dave called me again and I gave him a couple more names to call. He called these girls also and again no one had seen or heard from Skylar. Dave called me again and I told him not to worry that she had to be at work at 4:00 and she never missed work so we would check with them around 4 to make sure she had shown up. I returned home from work and was just ready to call her work when the phone rang and it was her work place calling to see if Skylar was going to report to work. At this time I started to panic and called her bestie again and again we were told she had not seen or heard from Skylar. About 15 minutes later her bestie called me back saying she had to tell me the whole story and proceeded to tell me that she, Skylar and another bestie had snuck out the night before and drove around town and were back home and in bed around midnight. She stated the they had dropped Skylar off at the end of our street because Skylar was insistent that she did not want us to hear her sneaking back in the house. At this point we immediately called local law enforcement (city law enforcement) and they responded quickly and we did a neighborhood search and went door to door asking if anyone had seen or heard anything the night before. The neighboorhood watch program seems to be a little lacking as no one had seen or heard a thing. The city police were ready to call in search and rescue as we live close to the rail trail and the Monongahela River. I remembered that we have security cameras and the landlord was called to check his cameras and it revealed Skylar sneaking out her bedroom window and walking across the parking lot and getting into a car. The video was blurry and less than optimal and we were not able to make out the make or license plate of the car. At this point local law enforcement (city) considered her a runaway and everything came to a halt.
    From the point of her being seen getting into the car the only thing we could do was to distribute Missing posters and rely on tips phoned in to the police. Many days and nights were spent following up on these leads and supposed sightings and none of them proved to have any merit. With the support of the community we continued on and it seemed as though nothing was getting accomplished. When we contacted the City police we were constantly being told by the Chief that she was a runaway and would return and there was nothing they could do but they were following up on all tips they received. This scenario continued for 2 months until I could no longer take it. I know my daughter and I know that she would not stay away that long without contacting someone. I may be vain in assuming it but I truly feel that she could not stay away from me that long let alone her friends. I went to the city police station one day and had no intention of leaving the premises without some answers. I was told in no uncertain terms by the Chief of the Police that she was a runaway until information proved otherwise and that he could not share all the information he had with me. Although this same Chief was sharing information with people on the telephone whom we do not even know and we were finding out this information on facebook. Again, I may be vain but I feel that the parents should have this information first without having to find it out through total strangers in the neighborhood and on facebook. I had asked the Chief to call for help from the State Police and he stated that he had a consultant with the States and he did not need any further help and even stated that he asked the States for help and they refused. At this point I was told to leave his office.
    Upon returning home I could not accept that 2 months had passed with no word from Skylar and they were still considering her a runaway so I called the State Police myself and was told that yes, they had received missing fliers on Skylar to distribute and keep an eye out for her but no, they had not been asked to help with the investigation and that they would never refuse to assist with a missing persons case. From that point on the States have been continually assisting with Skylar's case and a lot of things have been discovered and revealed. The number one and main factor is that the law considers a missing child a runaway instead of a missing person until it is proven otherwise. We have lost valuable time and progress in that 2 months time because nothing was done and the Chief was waiting for her to return home. We now have a petition to enact Skylar's law that will hopefully go to the legislature in January for approval to reverse this law and make it that a missing person is a missing person until it is proven they are a runaway. This law will ensure that local law enforcement do everything at their disposal to find a missing person before the trail is cold. We have the approval of State and Federal law enforcement to enact this law and they are behind it 100%.
    At this point the investigation became top priority for the State Police and the FBI. Interviews were being conducted and investigations were done into cell phones, computers, ipods, etc. I must make note that the Apple corporation was contacted at this time with subpeonas from the FBI to disclose the last location that Skylar had used her ipod and Apple refused. They were contacted several times by both the State and Federal levels and to this day they have refused to cooperate. We have been told that this could have been over months ago if they were willing to cooperate. Through these investigations it was discovered that Skylar's 2 best friends that she had snuck out with were not telling the whole truth. They have continued to withhold information to this day and have been caught in multiple lies to both the State and Federal authorities. The original belief was that they were in fear of retrubution or the consequences of others. At this point both girls have been offered immunity and still refuse to cooperate. The supposed bestest friend of Skylar's has even failed her lie detector test. The other best friend has not shown up for her testing or last interrogation. She conveniently disappeared and did not show at her lawyer's office for her last appointment. These girls seem to believe that they are invincible and nothing will happen to them but subpeonas and warrants are being issued for the next Grand Jury in January.
    Throughout all this nightmare, the girls have withheld information. In the beginning her best friend would come to the house and cry with us and say that she wanted Skylar home. I loved these girls unconditionally and would have never dreamed they could be capable of things such as this. I felt about them as my daughters. This is truly the ultimate betrayal. The other friend never showed at our house and has only contacted us on a couple of occasions throughout these past 5 months. It is appearing at this point with all of the investigative information that these girls are more guilty than originally suspected. It just sickens me to know that anyone at this young of an age could sit by and let their supposed best friend disappear in this way. If it was truly something that happened as an accident they have had every opportunity to come forward with this information and have even been offered immunity. At this point it looks like foul play has occurred and murder has not been ruled out. I cannot stress enough what this has done to not only Dave and I but to the entire community. There has been a huge outpouring of love and support for us and we truly could not have come this far without all this love and support. It is time for these girls to come forward with everything they know. Our family needs closure to move on whether it be with Skylar's remains or the best scenario is that it be Skylar herself.
    Just wow.
    I hope those subpoenas warrants and the Grand Jury will lead to the truth.
    I'm lost for words about Apple. They won't cooperate in helping to locate a missing (minor) girl???

    ETA: Would Apple really be able to pinpoint a location of an Ipod?

    I read on TS that a Private Investigator offered his services at no charge to the parents, and they declined when he said he would need to access the girl's room.

    That's not true the Neeses take any help they can get. I sent a letter last night to WTAE and copied Mary's letter, they are very interested in the story along with Apple refusing to help. I called the father and is waiting for the call. So I doubt very seriously they refused any type of help.

    I don't know much about getting cell phone records but if Apple was subpoenaed wouldnt they have to release information or am I wrong about that?

    I am not by any means saying its untrue I just didn't realize you could refuse information if subpoenaed by the FBI. This makes me want to bombard Apple with calls!! This infuriates me because this could help find Skylar!

    This is very interesting. It sounds like they may be on the right track, and may be getting closer to finding Skylar. I am betting someone is going to "crack" soon. I hope so anyway.

    BBM From your mouth to God's ear. I wish someone would crack and tell the truth.

    Phone was not Skylar's. What the parents ask was that they contact police with information. Pleople were sending PM's and they were at work and wouldn't see them until they got home. Lost time

    I hope the police interviewed local sex offenders. I only found 2 from Star City on the WV Police website. One of them is a 59-yo black male convicted of assulting a pre-pubescent family member. The other is a 60-yo white male who assulted a female acquaintance aged 13-17 (preference is correct). His house looks shady too. There is a shed in the back. Do police need a warrant to search the property of a registered sex offender that is no longer on probation?

    Offender (DDM) has address on Herman Ave, which is about a mile to everywhere in Star City.

    Although, my intuition would lead me to believe it a student at WVU that she may have befriended.

    I'm a Morgantown native and resident. If the "best friend" is telling the truth about dropping Skylar off down the street from her apartment complex (which I think she is not being honest about), the odds of her being abducted by a stranger as she walked down the road to her apartment building in this town are slim to none unless someone was actively stalking her. I don't think she fell victim to a crime of opportunity. I'm not saying it's an impossibility, but it's not where my gut would lead me. If she met with foul play, it was most definitely by the hands of someone she knew - or at least someone who knew her.

    IMO, there is also still a chance that she did run away from home for whatever reason. There are almost no posters of her (I've never personally seen one) and I have noticed little to no publicity about the case locally. I did hear about it on the radio when it happened, but it's not like her face and name are plastered all over town or anything like that. She could blend in very easily and stay hidden as long as the people around her were unaware that she was missing, or were willing to keep her secret. There is endless student housing she could crash at here.

    I honestly don't know what to make of the case. There just aren't enough details. I'm starting to get a bad feeling about it, though...

    A Tarot reading?! Could you offer more insight as to why you're saying that and who asked for the reading? I'm really intrigued. To the best of my knowledge, Tarot is much better at providing readings about abstract concepts than specific locations. Although some cards can refer to concrete things like people's appearances, I've always heard that reading like that was less accurate since it shutted down most of the meanings the cards can have. It's the difference between getting the Queen of Swords in a reading and reading it as someone who is persuasive, knowledgeable, and so on (or applying this to a happening and not a person) versus an adult woman with dark hair.

    I don't think Apple can track down an iPod's location very easily. For stolen devices, there are some apps you can use to track it down via GPS but they can be unreliable. Maybe on cases like missing people Apple themselves can do it and just won't bother with stolen devices.

    If it's an iPhone it may be easier since it's also a phone and has more features and connectivity options. The iPod Touch also has more features like that unlike old iPods so maybe they could do it too.

    I'm not a fan of Apple devices so I could be wrong about all this and hopefully someone else can provide more explanation. Assuming it's impossible, the only conceivable reason they'd refuse it would be to save face but then people who own iPods already know that they won't track stolen devices for you by default and if it's a technical impossibility people who are big fans and know all the technical details would know that already. If it's possible the only reason would be if they thought that was a breach against their costumer's privacy.

    I'm not that familiar with US law but correct me if I'm wrong, you can't refuse a subpoena (only maybe contest it) but not flat out say no and ignore it. Lots of websites and prodcuts specifically say they won't hand out your information unless it's required by the law.

    The lack of posters and publicity is odd, reading about this case from a distance would led me to believe that her parents and everyone else have been spreading posters and pleas for help tirelessly. Weird. I too think there's a chance that she just ran away and is staying under the radar. I hope she's safe.

    To me the foul play option seems very likely by this point, not from a stranger while walking back home but somewhere else. An accident at a party or a stranger hurting her while she and her friends were doing something they weren't supposed to, or even an adult in her life like a relative (not necessarily from her immediate family) or an authority figure. There's just a lot that could have happened and made people with leads too afraid to speak up, especially as far as teenaged friends go.

    As an aside I think we can safely ignore that twitter. Clearly the hypothesis that she ran into foul play while out with her friends are not new to her family and local people so this twitter could be anyone who is convinced that it's true and that her friends will crack this way. Especially if it's based on that Tarot reading it's just not someone with insider knowledge IMO. I also like to hope that someone who did know that and was so strongly against her friends would come forward and say something rather than post anonymously on twitter of all places.

    I wanted to post here earlier but got sidetracked. Anyway, I hope that the Grand Jury hearings help in finding Skylar and those that are responsible for her missing are brought to justice. IMO there are a few people who know exactly what happened to Skylar and where she is at.
