    Why has this girl been missing for 2 weeks and we are just now hearing about it?

    It appears that Joy has gone missing before - 3 years ago....

    This is close to where I work. And I have heard nothing. It is reminiscent of the mother-daughter who are also missing in DC: no publicity.

    My posts are meant to help think through possibilities and are strictly an additional opinion under circumstances when many points of view need to be considered. I apologize in advance to anyone whose potential involvement is contemplated in error. Please understand that much of what is happening is merely brainstorming during unfortunate events.

    Seem like the only reason any of us locals are hearing about Joy is because of Bryan's case. I only found this because I was looking for info on his case. Why didn't this go out three weeks ago. So frustrating! There is little to no information on these cases. Then there was the woman who went missing SIX years ago whose remains were found off the Stafford exit of I95. I never heard about her case either!

    Aww, SHe looks like a little 80s girl, with all her neon on! I probably looked much the same way ca. 1989

    I know DC police are busy, but a 15 year old on the street is in danger, runaway past or no. They need to publicize these cases IMMEDIATELY, not wait a week or so before getting it out to the press.

    And I'm afraid, as usual, that missing children and adults of color get short shrift on media attention and police action too.

    Come home soon, Joy. I hope you are somewhere safe and warm tonight.

    CBS local is also reporting she is in need of medical attention.

    I hope she is someplace WARM, as our temp here fell dramatically over the weekend to the 40s.

    Yes, the northeast has gotten chilly.

    I hope they have checked all her friends, I don't see a 15 year old going to a shelter, or anything like that. Someone has to know where she is, or have an idea.
