    GA - Mercedes Nwogbo, 14, Columbus, 28 August 2015

    Mercedez Nwogbo

    Family searching for missing Columbus teen
    "COLUMBUS, Ga. – A Columbus family is asking for the community’s help to find missing 14-year-old Mercedez Nwogbo. The police report spells her name ending with a z, but all documentation News Three received from the family spells her name Mercedes. Her mother, Lolesha Nwogbo, said the eighth grader never came home from school Friday afternoon.
    She said Mercedez goes to AIM Middle School and usually takes the city bus. Nwogbo said her daughter does not have a cell phone, making it harder to find her."

    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."

    Mercedes is tall for her age (5 feet 7 inches,) very pretty, and could pass for someone older. From the article:

    The family passed out fliers in Eufaula on Sunday afternoon after a friend of Mercedes said she mentioned to her that she was going to Eufaula with a man to drink.

    Mercedes' mother is asking her to just come home.

    Oh this doesn't sound like some good choices are being made. I hope it's just that and she's home soon!

    Poor choices indeed. This is alarming!

    Daily, "Mercedes takes a shuttle bus to the library on Macon Road from school and then takes a Metra bus home."

    Mercedes "was seen at school all day at the alternative school on Forrest Road but she didn’t not ride the Metra bus home."

    The parents checked all 3 buses and Mercedes wasn't on any of them.

    A friend of Mercedes said Mercedes "mentioned to her that she was going to Eufaula with a man to drink."

    When, where, how did she meet a man? Internet? I sure hope they figure out who this guy is before it's too late.

    From Columbus to Eufaula is pretty far. How did she get there?

    Family thinks missing teen is being held against her will

    Mercedes Mims Nwogbo, 14, was last seen getting on the school shuttle at Edgewood Student Services Center where she attends an alternative school.
    “Right now I’m really worried that she met someone on social media on her own free will, left with them but now that she is in trouble. It’s been over 48 hours and this is out of character for Mercedes,” said Lolesha Nwogbo, Mercedes’ mother.
    Lieutenant Dent-Fitzpatrick says at this time the Columbus Police Department doesn’t have any evidence to treat this case as an abduction or a kidnapping.
    “It looks like it could be a runaway based on what we are gathering from family and social media,” Lt. Dent-Fitzpatrick said.
