    IN - Abigail Williams, 13, & Liberty German, 13, Delphi, 13 Feb 2017 #1

    MISSING: Two 13-year-old girls dropped off to go walking at Carroll County trail

    Carroll County Sheriff Toby Leazenby said Abigail Williams and Liberty German were last seen around 1 p.m. when they were dropped off to go hiking at High Bridge, just east of Delphi.

    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."

    Was this hike something they did often? Apparently, their high school was out on some type of winter break yesterday.

    That bridge looks dangerous! I hope they didn't run into trouble there. Searching Google for Monon High Bridge Trail provides some pictures of the area.

    They are resuming the search at daybreak.

    I saw this in one of my homeschool groups. Maybe a dumb question, but that railroad is no longer active, right? This place seems like the perfect place to use heat detection at night! I wish they would have done that search tonight. If they are hurt, tomorrow could be too late. The girls seem fascinating. I really hope they are found soon.

    It was an abandoned railway. But these photos scare me. I wish they would have done an air search at night. I'm super scared for them

    "Based on the information given by family and friends, police do not believe foul play is involved and have been given no information that would lead them to believe the girls are in any immediate danger, other than exposure to outside elements."

    Voluntary missing or not these girls are still in danger but I wonder what leads them to think this.

    This is my community Another search is being organized around the bridge area, and dogs are expected from Illinois at any time.

    Schools were closed Fri & yesterday because they didn't have to use any snow days this year. This is a place that people of all ages hike and explore, but also a teenage hangout spot. We had very nice (for February in Indiana) weather yesterday, but so cold last night and this morning.

    “Missing, abducted we don’t know for sure,” said Patty.” The cell phone has been pinging around town and here – there is a cell phone tower – but the ping was last noted around five to six hours ago and they say the phone is now dead.”

    The last Snapchat from one of the girls was from 2:07 p.m. on Monday."

    Patty is grandfather to one of the girls.

    I'm scared for them. It's said that the bridge is a common hiking place but the pictures that Liberty took still make it look so desolate when they were there. And for both of them to go phone silent doesn't speak to an accident to me. It speaks of #1 running away or #2 foul play.

    It seems very very hopeful that these two girls have run off for an adventure. The dangerous things that can befall them on the railroad tracks are highly unlikely to happen to BOTH girls - kidnapping, falling and getting injured, becoming disoriented, etc. These are the things that are more likely to happen to one person, not two.

    Additionally, the grandfather is saying the phone was pinging in town? The last "snapchat" posted is the one of Liberty on the railroad tracks - and that was posted at 2:07 - I'm guessing that was the "in town" use of the phone? If so, it seems it's very very likely they'll be located today somewhere in town.

    Hello fellow Hoosier! I'm not too far away (Parke County near Turkey Run State Park). I was really concerned about last night's cold weather if they were indeed lost, but it seems more likely they are voluntarily missing now. Hope they find their way home.

    Interesting. One of the girl's mother's facebook profile picture appears to be that very bridge, chosen as her profile pic a couple years ago. Must be a special and familiar place for them.
