    These girls have been missing all afternoon and the search was suspended tonight now that it's dark here. We're a small town next to a larger city but a small police force that has likely never dealt with missing kids.. Bikes found on the trail and purse and phone had been thrown over the fence near the bikes but the other side of the fence is a hill leading to the highway. Right now the search is very disorganized and there aren't any flyers .

    Things to know before you post:
    Leave the snark -- and the rumors --at the door.
    Treat other posters with respect.
    Do not sleuth individuals who have not been mentioned in MSM either as persons of interest or as suspects by LE.
    Choose the links you post wisely; don't link to sites which feature bizarre speculation, etc.
    If you have questions or concerns about a post, alert on that post and contact a mod. Do not quote and/or reply to the post. If you do, and the post is subsequently deleted, your post is subject to deletion, as well.
    If you have other questions in general, scroll to the bottom of the page and find "View forum leaders." There you will find a list of moderators available if you need to PM one.
    Remember: you can disagree with a post and address it, but you do NOT attack the poster.

    No one has been named by LE or MSM as a POI or suspect in this case.
    The parents, whatever you may personally think about them, have not been named.
    That means that they, and their families, their neighbors, and their friends and "associates," are not to be sleuthed or badmouthed.
    bumping this up.. and this warning lands at random: several more posts that involved sleuthing the family have been removed just from today alone. From this point forth if you sleuth the family or post speculation about them you will be put on the timeout list. The rules are easy to follow. If you have any questions about them please pm a moderator. Again, this lands at random.

    Does anyone have a direct link to Misty's comment on AMW? When I clicked the link it didn't show comments on it.

    the reason we do not allow copy and paste of comments is because we have no way of knowing if it was actually Misty making the comment. I will bring over the amw link for you.

    I am just jumping off your post winterrose :-)

    Thank you Nurse, I know, I just wanted to read what she had just posted, even if it was paraphrased. It's so sad, I can't even begin to imagine.

    I usually keep some emotional safety distance from the families because I want to protect myself. It is a failing and I work on it but it is certainly true I am a work in progress.

    There's something about Misty, though, that grabbed my heart right away. I'm hoping that she's getting the sort of help she needs. It's not easy to find a therapist even in non-crisis times, let alone in a situation like this where there's both too much time and not enough.

    I hope something in her life is going easily for her.

    Oh no re:MCM.

    Although I will say I am not an addict and can easily see self-medicating myself to the gills in her situation.

    I can't imagine how awful it must be.

    Maybe this is a symptom of the emotion everyone thinks she is lacking. I don't wish her any harm and I am not glad that she had this issue, but I am glad to know that she feels something.

    She was offered therapy thru the FBI. Granted it was surely based on dealing with her child missing, but the substance abuse issues could have been addressed as well. She's a danger to herself and that needs to be addressed.

    OT: There is a new development in the Laureth Mays case.

    We also have a wonderful low/no cost mental health center open to all residents of black hawk and grundy counties

    Here is the website (it's in the middle of being redone right now so doesn't look the best and is missing a lot of info)

    http://www.bhgmhc.com/

    Also for addiction there is Pathways behavioral health services and they are also very good at what they do, also sliding fee scale low cost (most of my clients pay $5 per visit)

    My heart goes out to this family, I can't even imagine how much stress and pain they are in.
