    Yes, it seems her family is quite adamant that she would never completely go off the grid/become non-responsive, no matter what-IF she was in control of the situation. MOO.

    Article describes her tattoos:

    Houston has tattoos on both of her arms. On her left arm, she has the word “strength” with the “g” replaced with a semi-colon (stren;th) and an arrow underneath it. On her right arm, near the wrist, Houston has a tattoo with the word “faith,” a friend says.

    The text message is so frightening.....especially in conjunction with her silence since the message was sent.

    I feel terrible for her family and friends.

    Unfortunately we all have a good idea of how most of these cases end...her poor family must be worried sick.

    I think when it comes to not leaving with strangers etc, we all think “it won’t happen to me”, which is (sometimes) fatal, flawed thinking.

    I know I made lots of poor choices in my early 20’s and am grateful to have survived.

    I'm not as pessimistic as most. We usually only hear about the missing cases that end badly.

    I'm still trying to understand why someone would text that they may be in trouble?

    She may have left to do something like smoke weed with the guys (MOO), which is a super common reason for young adults to leave bars with people they don't know. I wish Paighton had an app such as Noonlight, that would've been spectacularly useful in this situation, but she didn't know what to do and didn't feel like the situation was bad enough to call the cops at that time so she let a trusted friend know she didn't feel safe. I wish she would've had the wherewithal to share her current GPS location with that friend as well. I hope she is found quickly. We're almost at 4 days in with no news, and I'm scared for her.

    How did she get to the bar. There has been no mention of a car or whether she went by herself or with friends.

    BBM- I also made many poor choices in my 20’s and that was 3 decades ago! Looking back, it is a wonder I am still here. So many prayers for Paighton and her family. I just don’t think she would willingly disappear herself at this time of the year. MOO

    I'm around her age and my read is: she was probably a bit tipsy and left the bar with some people who seemed nice. Later she started to feel uncomfortable but not so uncomfortable she needed to call 911. She texted her friend to say, hey, I don't know the people I'm with and I'm starting to feel uncomfortable with them, so if I call you for help please pick up.

    As a woman, there's nothing unusual about her text, except that she disappeared after she sent it.

    She felt unsafe for some reason? In trouble like may relapse? Felt the situation was getting out of control? Felt intoxicated to the point of losing control?

    Whatever the reason, can’t be good IMO.

    There's nothing good about this scenario. A young woman is missing and it is reported that she left a bar with 2 men. Now she's missing after sending a somewhat cryptic text. Quite frankly, I have nothing positive to think about this at all.

    Bad decision; questionable decision? It doesn't really matter. She needs to be found because she's in trouble.

    I'd like to know if she was with friends or at the bar alone. CCTV?, Video Surveillance? Where is she?

    Hoping for a positive outcome but very concerned.

    MOO

    As opposed to what? Not texting, calling the cops..?

    Maybe they were doing drugs and she overdosed. They got scared and left her. If that's the case, I hope they will contact police.

    Maybe she had to sneak a quick text because she was unable to make a phone call because of who was around?

    I hope LE is/was able to find footage that shows what happened after the three of them left the Tin Roof. Did they walk somewhere? Got into a car? Which direction did they go? I hope they left in a car and LE is able to make out a number. But if they were seen getting into a car wouldn't they have released a description by now and asked the public to report any sightings of it?

    Whatever angle I look at it, it doesn't look hopeful. Very worried!
