    A map of where she was last seen:

    You can read more if you link to her sister's FB page from that article.

    Tori's FB page - https://www.facebook.com/tori.long.9

    Tori graduated from PHS the year after Chelsea King was murdered.

    PHS had a lot of difficult situations and loses of students the year before and after that, and I know Chelsea's murder, especially, really impacted many of the students there.

    I pray this isn't going to end in another tragedy for the PHS alum of those couple of years to have to deal with!

    Tori and her sister were well known PHS students as both were exceptional water polo players.

    There’s been a Long family tradition of excellence on the Poway High girls water polo team.

    First, Allie Long joined the varsity. Then her younger sister, Tori, did likewise. Now, after playing two seasons together, Allie is off to college and Tori has stepped into her sister’s former role as a team captain.

    Like her sister, Tori has a record of All-Palomar League recognition over the years.

    I'm too old to have crossed paths with her, but I'm from Poway. It's so weird to see it mentioned here.

    I hope she just needed a break and returns home.

    Did Tori attend college or have a job?

    From what I found she had been at SDSU (which wouldn't be all that far from her apartment) and playing water polo there until at least 2013 (and in Philosophy in spring of 2013) but I haven't been able to tell since then.

    Here's an article about Aztec water polo that mentions her being a sophomore in 2013 and playing http://www.thedailyaztec.com/36225/s...t-in-the-pool/

    And here's her athlete page from that same sophomore year http://www.goaztecs.com/sports/w-wpo...ng_791172.html

    But like I said, I can't find anything since then.

    Ditto all of what you said! (Though I am seeing this all over FB from old students or their family members since I had a lot of both Chelsea and Tori's peers in my classroom over the years when they were younger.)

    There's a surprising number of us on WS with ties to the area!

    Unfortunately every time there's a local case where any of us are or were, more turn up!

    And I'm trying to hope you're right and she only needed a break. This one worries me though

    BBM

    I don't know where they got the photo of her for the news story, but that location is the first place I would look for her. Sounds to me like she was possibly suicidal. It appears to be a secluded area overlooking a neighborhood/town/city. She looks happy there and she would have a connection to the spot. (If it is within driving distance and not from some trip abroad etc)

    Praying she's ok and will come back home.

    Missing Poway High graduate found safe
    http://fox5sandiego.com/2015/10/13/m...te-found-safe/

    "The search for a missing Poway High graduate ended Tuesday (...)
    Long called her sister from a hospital room in Utah and said she was doing alright..."

    Police aren't providing any more details at the moment. Sort of an odd update and the nosy part of me wants to know more. Whatever transpired though, I'm just glad she is safe and obviously getting the help she needs.
