    IN - Melissa Rhone, 16, Portage, 21 March 2017

    Family, police looking for missing Portage girl, 16

    Melissa Rhone left work at a Chesterton thrift shop at 6 p.m. on March 21 with a friend and hasn't been in contact with her family since then.

    The Portage teen's father, Mike Rhone, and aunt, Linda Rhone, are trying to piece together where she went and, more importantly, where she is now so they can find her and bring her home.

    "It's rough," said Mike Rhone. "It's hard to sleep, with everything else. And telling the story 100 times, it gets old."

    The family has been in contact with the Portage Police Department since the day after Melissa, 16, disappeared, and the department has assigned a detective to the case.

    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."

    Her friend can identify the boy I'm sure.

    These runaways are out of control lately. Seems like every thread

    Isn't 16 a little old for a feshman. I wonder if she's bounced around between mom and dad.
    I understood every word you said. It was the order that you said them that has me confused.

    My thoughts, too. Usually freshmen are around 14 when they enter 9th grade -- she could've just had a b-day and started school late, possibly. But bouncing around could be why, as suggested.

    This worries me a bit. She could still show up okay, but she's missed some school days...

    Possibly missed some school if she has gone missing before and was unable to advance to the next grade.
    Moo. I do not know if she has gone missing before though.

    I have a relative that used to teach at the high school; 16 is definitely on the upper age of a freshman but she was probably held back in early grades. This is a fairly small town; hope they find her safe.

    She still has ONE active Facebook account. I bet the person she went with was named Steven. Check out the link and go to the about section.

    Melissa was adopted at birth. I am very close friends with her bio-mom. She still sees her bio-mom but not regularly since she lives in Alabama. She has run away once before when she was 13 but she was found that evening. It sounds like Melissa left in anger since her father did say that they had fought over a Facebook posting and she was supposed to come home that evening and "face the consequences". I do not know her adoptive family so I'm not sure what her home life is like there.
