Glad she is home safely, but this is a really weird deal.
During an interview on tv (I wasn't paying a lot of attention at first) a police officer was rather evasive when answering questions, but she ended up saying that the girl had been seen by some of her friends on the 17th. The interviewer was sort of having to drag answers out of the LE. Must have been on NG or Greta. What else do I watch on tv? Not much.
So it was either: her mother was in the hospital, the girl was visiting her, and girl left home to get a change of clothes, and never made it home, or this way: she did make it home, and her mother was released from hospital, and went home, and girl left after mom got home?
Still, the most important thing was that she wasn't murdered.
