    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    This girl is still missing. Please share her information so we can bring her home. It is believed she is in the Southern Illinois area. Thank you.

    This case is local to me. I've seen her picture passed around Facebook, but didn't realize until I watched an update on the local news tonight that I went to high school with both of her parents. I had no idea whose daughter she was, or that those two people happened to have a child together. Color me a little stunned here.

    This case is fairly big news around here, but the details are kind of scarce. The rumors are that she cleaned out her mother's bank account and took off, probably with a boyfriend.

    Also, the title of this thread is incorrect. It should read "Fairfield," not "Fairview."

    The search for 16-year-old Megan Nichols isn't over but there's still no sign of her.

    From Fairfield Police and the Wayne County Sheriff's Office, to the FBI and the Illinois Attorney General's office, lots of agencies have been looking for Megan...

    That night all Megan left behind was a note telling her mother she loved her but would never be happy here. She also left her cell phone, which had been factory restored.

    The same article made the NBC "Missing in America" site. http://www.nbcnews.com/feature/missi...ichols-n178011

    I do wonder if this was more than just a case of teenage angst. Maybe there really was something going on at home.

    Mother Kathy Jo Hutchcraft has been keeping her now 16-year-old daughter next to her heart on a necklace. "Megan and I were incredibly close," said Hutchcraft. "I mean we did everything together."

    Hutchcraft had dropped Megan off at their house on July 3rd. She had been complained about an upset stomach. Mom returned late that night from running errands. "Sick feeling you know came over me and said shut the stove off and go check on your daughter," said Hutchcraft. "When I went upstairs, she was gone"...

    The Fairfield Police department gets several tips each week. Their search with the State Police, U.S. Marshals, and the FBI stretched to Oklahoma. Megan's biological father, John David Jackson Nichols, was arrested for being a non-compliant sex offender. However, the arrest did not lead to Megan.

    Is this the only page now active for Megan? I wonder if she could have been pregnant?

    The body of an unidentified 15 year old has been found in Indy. I hope it's not Megan.

    Doesn't sound like Megan:

    Authorities say a 15-year-old girl whose badly burned body was found dumped in an Indianapolis backyard was a student at Ben Davis Ninth Grade Center on the city's far west side.

    Well, I'm glad. I think she could still be alive, but I also think it's very possible something could have happened to her after she ran away.

    I'm confused by the mother's statement. If she just sent her daughter home because she wasn't feeling well, why did she immediately have a sick feeling when she came back into the house? And why did she first think "shut off the stove?" I'm not implying the mom had something to do with her disappearance, but her statement doesn't make sense. I wonder if she was misquoted or they left something out of the article or something.

    I took that to mean she had a sick feeling when she returned to find the kid gone.

    And re the kid having an upset stomach, I wouldn't necessarily take that as anything meaningful, unless it was simply a fib to get away from mom.

    Surely Megan would show up by her 16th birthday, I thought. Earning a drivers’ license and the freedom it brings should be enough to bring anyone home. Her birthday came and went. Still, there were no confirmed sightings, and no one heard from Megan... I believed Megan would surely show up by Aug. 18, the start of school. As Megan’s friends and classmates filled the hallways of Fairfield Community High, she remained missing.

    I talked to Chief Colclasure last week. He said that in the beginning, Megan’s case file was spread out over an entire desk. Documents generated from the search have since been placed in a large file box. The file continues to grow as every lead and every sighting is fully investigated.

    It will soon be two months since anyone has seen or heard from Megan Nichols.

    it always amazes me how a runaway of that age isn't considered "endangered" :/
