    I checked mapquest and North Potomac Md is 343 miles from Charleston WV. That is a long ways. I don't really understand a daughter calling her mom from that far away pretending to be going to the movies. If a child is running away they usually won't call to buy time.Perhaps one of the girls had met a boy from that area or was going out of state for a secret she didn't want anyone to know about. I hope they have just run off and will be back.

    Being as Rockville is a community of DC, it is all over the DC news. One of the stations actually ran a picture of what one of the girls parents found in her hand-written diary. Though the picture of the diary page is not posted with this article, it does sum it up:

    http://www.wusa9.com/news/news_artic...?storyid=55208

    The parents did an interview and said that their daughter was suicidal in the past. Other news stations are reporting that officials asked them to not reveal what was in the diary.

    Charlestown, WV, is maybe an hour to an hour-and-a-half drive from here, if the traffic isn't bad... that was the last place her cellphone registered from.

    It sounds like they were more then friends. And you know what? That is ok. Let them be and just let them come home. I hope they didnt run away due to pressure and are going to do something drastic.

    i saw that earlier,, and i wonder why the parents revealed to the media what the girl said in her diary. i know the situation could be urgent.. but somehow it seems like a cruel invasion of privacy. was that really necessary?
    still.. judging by that it does not sound good.. hopefully it's just the usual hormonal-induced epic end-of-the-world drama that young people go through... and she didn't mean anything serious by it...........?

    Teenage girls can be so dramatic. I sure hope that's all this is and the girls will be found safe.

    Goodness, do I know that... having raised teens, I couldn't agree with you more, on the drama. And I too, hope the girls are found safe... my heart goes out to their parents...

    I would call what clearly appears to be a form of a suicide note, written by a teenage girl who has suffered from depression no less, as something VERY URGENT.

    Quote: "wherever I end up laying, whether buried or cremated, I want to stay with my true love, buried next to her. This is my choice. Iím sorry." End Quote

    The parents obviously feel it is of utmost importance to release this--they are afraid for her LIFE. If I was in their shoes, I would risk my daughter feeling like her privacy had been invaded if it meant more exposure for her missing persons case and possibly saving her life. I'd rather her feel that, than be dead and not feel anything at all.

    The last part where she says "This is my choice. I'm sorry" makes me feel that she KNEW it would be found, and maybe even WANTED it to be found. As a parent, you stop at nothing when the safety and well being of your child is being compromised.

    True... very true.

    In an interview from WJZ (B'more station), her father expressed that he is scared: (the video interview is on the upper right side of the page)

    http://wjz.com/local/local_story_022225721.html


    About him finding her diary: the way he described it, he found it right on her desk, under a book. While I don't want to jump to conclusions, I do know how protective girls can be of their private diary and will do what they can to keep it hidden well away... but with him finding it so easily, it sets off red flags... it does give cause to think that she meant for it to be found.

    But I am curious about why she wrote it in the diary?
    Why not just write a note and leave it on the desk or somewhere out in the open?
    Rest in Peace to my best buddy and baby, Buster ~ He crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Jan. 3, 2011. I miss you, Buster and love you with all my being.

    I agree, most teen girls have their diaries locked and well hidden. I just hope they find them soon.

    While there were no signs of trouble, Rachel Crites was still undergoing counseling for depression, her father said. She had attempted suicide in March because of problems the family was going through, according to her father. In September, he and his wife ó Critesí stepmother ó separated and in October his daughter moved in with him, he said. He has called her mother, who lives in Italy, and her stepmother, about Rachel being missing.
