    Police ask help finding missing woman
    DEADWOOD | Authorities are asking for the public’s help in finding a 32-year-old Rapid City woman last seen in Deadwood in the early morning hours of April 21.

    Kristin Mercy, who also goes by the last name Krull, was reported missing April 22 when she failed to return home, according to Deadwood Police Det. Alex Hamann. He described her as 5-foot-2, 145 pounds, with blond hair, hazel eyes and a fair complexion.

    She last was seen was on Main Street in Deadwood, Hamann said, and her phone was pinged when she was on the Mickelson Trail in the area of Deadwood Gulch Resort and Thunder Cove.

    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."

    Just my opinion, of course.

    Here's her FB https://www.facebook.com/kristin.kru...=browse_search

    Looks like she has 3 kids (her daughter is posting about her on her own FB - getting lots of "we're praying for you guys" etc. comments; oldest son is on FB, not seeing recent posts)

    Kristin looks like a very happy lady - beautiful smile in all her pictures and seems to adore her kids. She doesn't look like she'd purposely leave them.

    I hope they've searched well where her phone pinged. Seems like something happening at/near the trail is likely.

    Guessing her kids may have told someone? From posts on FB it looks like the kids are going and staying with people on weekends, and seems like they live with her and so are kind of getting 'shipped out' a bit when not in school.

    The article said she had just been released from jail that morning. Getting arrested and going to jail can be pretty damn traumatic for some people, especially the first time. Although many of us would not see her infraction as that big of a deal, she may have viewed it as a VERY big deal. Her Facebook page indicates that she also worked within a school district.

    The shame of that event may have caused her to do something to herself, but let's hope not. She looked happy and content in her Facebook photos, but some people can be very fragile without it being obvious. The details of her being arrested and going to jail and it being found out by her employer and family, may have been completely overwhelming to her.
