    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."

    I just looked at a satellite map, and there are bodies of water nearby, and the police are asking people to avoid Plays Lake area.

    She went missing about 3:00pm Amarillo time, so I think it's been 6.5 hours. And I imagine it's dark now too.

    How far is the water from the hotel? Would it be easily found by Alexis, since she didn't know the area? Since they are searching Plays Lake I'm assuming so... ugh, sick to my stomach about this one...

    "The search for a young girl last seen Tuesday afternoon will continue into the overnight hours south of Interstate 40, according to the Amarillo Police Department."

    There is one directly behind the motel. I think I counted 3 or 4 others that appear to be a few minutes walk.

    At 4:47 p.m., police were called to La Kiva Hotel at 2501 East Interstate 40 by parents searching for their missing child, Alexis Wartena.

    "They lost sight of her for a second," Amarillo Police Department Ofc. Jeb Hilton said. "She is nonverbal autistic and she gets around very well, but doesn't speak."

    TX Wildlife Department and Texas Department Criminal Justice search and rescue dogs, along with horses from Randall county are being used.
    Again, police are asking for people to stay away from the area.
    The APD Dive team will start a search in T-Anchor Lake soon.

    From above,"she is nonverbal, but responds to her name."

    Of course we know about all the little sweeties with autism who are found in the water; however, imo, in addition to the water and known autism connection/potential, I wouldn't rule out the possibility of an abduction in this case as well. The motel...of course all the guests would be checked out, but who knows if anyone has already left with her. And the freeway being right there...

    Hoping for Alexis' safe return.
