    From the link above:
    According to police, she left a note stating she would be home "in a couple of days." Police found she had been picked up by a Capital City Cab, and was dropped off on the 400 block of East Main Street, York, where the driver states the girl was met by an Hispanic female who was about 35 to 40 years old and of medium build.

    Swatara Township Police believe Saniecharan may be with 32-year old Edwin Antonio Vargas, Jr. of Harrisburg.

    Investigators would like to speak with Vargas. They say he knows Saniecharan through a family relationship.

    According to police, Vargas has a warrant for his arrest out of Dauphin County Adult Probation.

    my heart sinks every time I read of a 12, 13, 14 year old and so forth girl who runs off with an adult male. Teens that age are certainly not able to make wise informed decision and any adult male participating in harboring teen girls is very shady and suspect in my view. I pray this young lady is alright. Her FB page features comments and photos of younger siblings. Praying for her family. her siblings are probably confused and worried right now.

    I've been reading Kathryn's FB and there is some very vicious bullying taking place.
    I am shocked as I have kids that also go to school in Hburg (different school) who are the same age as Kathryn. I can not fathom what some of her "friends" are saying. It makes me so sad.
    Perhaps I'm over protective but none of my kids this age have a FB account. If they did it certainly wouldn't be carelessly left open.
    I'm puzzled about Kathryn's connection to Mr. Vargas. Looking for clues

    Yeah, mom2four, it kinda makes me feel like I didn't miss much by being a loner in high school. Not that I feel bad about it anymore really, but I have always felt like I was on the outside looking in...so maybe that was for the best.

    According to her FB page the guy she is sitting with eating looks like the guy in the picture on the news report.

    She comes across as a responsible 13 yo. Not many teens her age would have so many pictures of their siblings on the FB, nor would they constantly say how much they mean to her. I wonder if she wasn't too responsible - I saw no mother in the picture, and the dad came across as awfully young. Her mother is clearly Indian, and I wonder what happened to her - as far as I know, mothers are considered very important in India, and the bond with their children is crucial to the culture.

    This is incredibly sad. I agree about young kids and facebooks, especially public facebooks that don't appear monitored. She does seem to be very close with her young siblings. I fear she's given too much freedom on a computer or smartphone and had access to meet an older man who took advantage of her.

    The guy she is eating with is her father.
    The suspect in the news report isn't him.

    I agree. It sounded almost like she was separated from a few siblings as well. Hard to tell.

    I'm so glad she was found safe, although that's different from unharmed. I do hope if this Vargas fellow was a predator, that her parents are understanding, and seek treatment for her and not shame her. She's going to need a lot of therapy. Prayers for her.
