    Mattern texted a detective and stated that she was suicidal

    Strange. Why would she text a detective?

    I think the silver alert is great, but I wish they hadn't released all of the information about her mental state, because there's never going to be any getting it all off the internet, and this is going to haunt her at college and when she tries to find a job. I pray that they find her!

    I think they have to, in a way, since so many teens are runaways. We have been seeing lots of teens simply running off with a friend, male or female, this year, which is dangerous enough, but if someone is suicidal, there needs to be an extra push to find them at once. People do not pay much attention to "runaways" as a rule, Imo.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Right.
    Also, why is she on texting terms with a detective?

    Text to detective re: suicidal Lindsey

    The Suffolk County Police Department has issued a Silver Alert for a missing teen who is believed to be suicidal.

    Lindsey Mattern, 15, of 1403 Potters Blvd., Bay Shore, was last seen at her home on June 9 at 10 p.m. At 4 p.m. today, Mattern texted a detective and stated that she was suicidal.*

    Seen by parents, last on 6-9-14.
    Texted det. on 6-25-14 therefore not 2 wks before making public.

    I saw SILVER alert on Southern State Pkwy on the 25th on the overhead electronic sign.

    No mention of when parents reported her missing, IF they did.

    Why would she have a det. #? Either given her by front desk in PCT. or had it from a prior encounter or incident?

    Oddly, the other night, while driving taxi, I came across a girl holding onto another, stopped to inquire & learned that her friends stopped her & another girl from running in front of the train. The one girl texted she was going to kill herself. The friends called 911. I waited till the police came to make certain they didn't brush it aside. Ultimately, they took the girls home to their parents & I questioned why not take them to the hospital. I'm going to call the friend to see if all is well cause the friend said her father was very angry.

    That sure is VERY odd!
    (unless one of her close relatives was in LE, working at the police station she texted)

    Maybe it wasn't her who sent the text message?

    Is it known if the parents or friends have confirmed that she was suicidal, and/or if there was some kind of suicide note?

    IMO can't be 100% sure that this young girl has not been a victim of a violent crime.

    Not indicating that the Long Island Serial Killer have taken/killed her but killers sometimes do strange things with their victims phones; the LISK used one of his victims phone call and text to the victims relatives.

    From a post on the Long Island Press FB page, her sister said that the detective was working with the family as she had run away in the past.

    There is no update. No further info.
    I, too, find the text to a detective very strange. Also, the length of time from when her family last saw her, the text and the alert.

    I hope she is safe somewhere and just needed space.

    Thanks!
    Just read the comments. According to the sister LM has run away many times before (this is the 8th). Also, she has a phone but it is untraceable and LM is using an untraceable chat app. She sounds like a smart girl. I hope she gets help.

    Found this worrying profile of 15 year old Lindsey Mattern from NY.

    Im 99,99% sure it IS her.
    If you klick on her profile photo, 3 additional images show up, and the second one of them, compared that with photos of LM from her facebook and it indeed confirm that it IS her, IMO, she is just a bit younger in the photos in the .exploretalent.com profile :

    http://www.exploretalent.com/profile/acting/3275833/

    Could someone please post this info on this facebook page (link below) or maybe better inform the police?

    Thanks in advance.
