NJ - Meaghan McCallum, 30, Oakland, 10 March 2015
Family searches for missing Oakland woman
A 30-year-old Oakland woman with a history of mental illness has been missing since Tuesday night, prompting her family to fear the worst. Meaghan McCallum was last seen by her grandmother, Betty Sidow, 85, at about 11 p.m. Tuesday night, said Heidi McCallum, the young woman’s mother. Meaghan lived with her parents in Oakland, but had been staying with Sidow at her Montvale home since Saturday. When Sidow woke up at about 3:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, Meaghan and her car were gone, the missing woman’s mother said.
McCallum, 58, and her husband James, 59, reported Meaghan, who attended Indian Hills High School in Oakland, missing to Oakland police on Wednesday. No family member has heard anything from Meaghan since Tuesday. “This is really, really scary to us. ... We’re frightened,” Heidi McCallum said. The woman, a graduate of Montclair State University, had stopped taking her medication last fall, and had quarreled with her parents about that.

"Meaghan has gone missing in the past, but usually was found quickly, her mother said. Meaghan made a call on her cellphone at 8:11 p.m. Tuesday, but her phone has since been turned off, her mother said."
I hope she is found soon and safe. I hope she knows people care about her and what happens to her.
Be safe and get in touch, Meaghan, if you see this.

Family seeks answers after daughter’s disappearance
Douglas Clark, News 12 NJ, Mar 16, 15 5:35 pm reports
that LE's investigation is ongoing. He talks with Meaghan's mom and dad, who ask for help to find Meaghan and that she contact them, if possible.
"left with only the clothes on her back."
[...and that they are]
“really concerned right away because Meg goes everywhere with her dog. They are attached at the hip,” says her mother Heidi McCallum. “She even takes her dog to work with her. So right away, we felt there was something not right.”
She's a very warm person who works with the elderly.
Missing in America has a FB page for her to spread the word and is liaising with the McCullams. Her friends are posting on it.

Ok--lets be positive----maybe there is a real long footprint left from the on-line date?The greatest trick the Devil ever played was convincing the world he didn't exist.
Three candles that illume every darkness: truth, nature, knowledge.
"There, isn't this a beautiful piece of cloth!", exclaimed the swindlers, as they described the lovely design that didn't exist.
