    The post is from Nov 28, supposedly from San Francisco. She went missing on Dec 9. Was she in San Francisco the entire time?

    Her friend has some leads. She might have gotten involved with the wrong people.

    Questions: What was her planned destination? A different city? Did she have her own accommodation or was she staying with people she knew? Were those people contacted? Who saw her last, where and when? Did anyone speak to her after her arrival?

    The missing poster states that she might be wearing the same clothes like on the first photo and that she was last seen on Dec 9. The photo in question was published on Nov 28 and was purportedly taken in SF, so she must have been in the area for 10 days before she went missing. Did she have any interaction with her friends or family between Nov 28 and Dec 9? How come that she "never arrived to her planned destination"? When did her phone go dead? Did they try to find out where it last pinged?

    Some of the answer can be found on SM. This was not a stable situation to begin with. I hope she is found soon.

    She went there to connect with 2 males who previously lived in Winchester VA. One of them approx 24 yrs old stated to the mother, he dumped that "btch" in a doorway or alleyway.

    Her last known whereabouts was McAllister St.

    I contated SFPD this am, they have yet to receive a case file from Winchester VA.

    She relocated to SF to start a new life, she knew 2 males Caleb Smeltzer approx 24, and his dad Raymond Lineburg 40s, I am a previous resident of Winchester Va, am familiar with these fellows, and I was assisting Nichole a few months ago to seek rehab resources in Virginia. I understand she met up with these fellows and Caleb stated he dumped her on a door way or alley. That is per a text to her mother.

    There is an official case but it can take up to 30 days to be forwarded to San Francisco.

    It is claimed she sold her phone for $20, I doubt she would cut off her lifeline like that.

    Best case scenario is she checked into a shelter.

    I reached out to Caleb but no response back. The guys have quite a criminal history, hoping Virginia has outstanding warrants on them.

    Oh man, I am so sorry you must be frantic about your friend.

    Is there any way possible she got herself into treatment anywhere despite what these guys say?

    Praying and hoping Nichole took herself to treatment and can't call from such due to long distance!

    RaeLee made it to SF but isn't associated with those guys anymore. The dude who left her in an alley was angry she wouldn't have sex with him.

    As of late Jan she was pursuing the new life as mentioned before. Very kind soul...
