    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."

    Turned up unexpectedly? What does that mean? Maybe she just went home after having a day at camp?

    The missing girl is not camper but had been one in the past and is familiar with the area. Polanski told News 4 the girl was dropped off at the campgrounds by a taxi around 11:00 a.m. and walked into some nearby woods. Polanski said the girl lives more than one hour away from the campgrounds. A St. Louis County Police helicopter is being used in the search.

    So, I'm not a taxi driver or anything, but wouldn't your average taxi driver find it odd to have a 13 year old girl taking a taxi by herself (especially if it was from home an hour away), then just wandering off into the woods? I think I'd at least make sure she got into the camp okay. Although I can't quite tell who reported her missing either, so maybe it was the taxi driver? What an odd story.

    She was
    transported by taxi from her Mt. Vernon home to the camp without her parents’ knowledge. The taxi driver told police the girl had three bags with her and “was not acting normal” during the drive. She was dropped off about 11 a.m. near the maintenance shed of the camp — located across the street from the main camp office — but never reported to the office.It is believed that the missing teen ran away from the camp immediately after drop off, officials said, leaving some bags behind.

    OK, I don't post much, but where is this child's parents? Who paid for her taxi fare? An hour's drive for a taxi was surely more money than a 13-year old would have, I would think.

    ETA: Just saw GigTu's post which addressed one of my questions.

    So a 13 year old takes a taxi with 3 bags to a camp. Then never goes in the camp office.
    So she paid an hrs fare. And then took off.
    Was she at home? Didn't the parents miss her? Did someone noticed she was missing? There just have to be more to this story.
