    I wish they would tell us that they looked on other buses as well.

    I dont know if she was seen far away from school when she was walking or if she walked to another bus.

    14-Year-Old Atlanta Girl Missing Since 1st Day of School

    Reward increased to $100k for North Atlanta High student missing after not making it home from school

    She was photographed leaving the school, but she did not get on her assigned bus.

    There is video of her entering school that day and a picture showing Caitlin leaving the building. Her parents say she did not get on her assigned school bus.

    The school also told the Winchester’s that they reviewed video footage on Caitlin’s bus and did not see her on it.


    Did the school review video footage from all the buses or just Caitlin’s assigned bus?

    I woke up thinking about her. So glad I checked the thread early so I can start my day on a positive note. Looks like one of her friends or friend’s parents might have thought that reward would sure come in handy. I’m positive we are not the only ones that would like to hear some answers. I just know her dad and folks are beyond the moon she’s home safe. I sure do hope Caitlin is willing to be honest with her dad. More honest than she’s ever been. She has to come up with some mighty fine answers to quickly quell dad and the FBI. She scared him so badly; he was probably on his knees more than once. I don’t think she had any idea how seriously traumatic it is for a parent to have their child suddenly go missing. My heart breaks for this dad. I’m relieved for him and fully expect him to handle the end of this saga properly and swiftly.

    Wondering if the 100k reward worked some magic?
    Such a relief!

    Did she run off or did someone snag her?
    I’m soooo glad she’s home, either way.

    Arlington, Texas?!

    For reference, the distance between Atlanta, Georgia and Arlington, Texas is appx. 800 miles / 11.5 hour car trip crossing 4 states / 2-2.5 hr. flight to Dallas-Fort Worth Airport & 20 min drive to Arlington

    I am sooo glad she was found, but texas? I would like to think she decided to walk away and not come back, opposed to being prevented from going back home.
    all speculation

    I’m not picking this up from msm reports but I do think she left on her own accord. I think she had a plan to meet up with someone. She may have rode another bus and wasn’t noticed on that bus; or maybe she discreetly walked to someone waiting in a car. COVID, summer break, online activity, social media, first day of school, her age and gender are all factors leading me to think she met someone online and a romantic relationship budded. Maybe she previously had unpleasant experiences at school or didn’t have many friends she could relate to anymore. Maybe this new guy/girl is older and made Caitlin feel older too. Maybe he capitalized on that emotion. Caitlin could have thought she was much more mature than she is and she no longer fit in with her school friends. I’ve seen and heard about so many of my kids and grandkid’s friends sit and tell me about some pretty wild stories over my many years. You know, like the preacher’s kid was always the stoner or thief. I had a 4.0 GPA all through high school. Yet I took risks, tested boundaries, ditched school, conspired with my friends, met up with boys, crawled out my bedroom window, experimented with alcohol and drugs and lied to my folks. I was still a normal kid with raging hormones. I was just smart.

    She was almost in the human trafficking triangle in Texas. So happy they found her on time.

    The Problem — Arcadia

    The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, sits at the dark intersection of two major sex trafficking corridors: The Texas Triangle (DFW, Houston, San Antonio) and the I-20 Corridor (starting in DFW and stretching East to South Carolina). Despite the pressing problem, the state of Texas has less than 30 specialized beds available for minors recovering from this traumatizing lifestyle. Thirty.

    It can't be confirmed with MSM and parents probably won't release the inns and outs, but yesterday we heard through the grapevines she was groomed through social media and met the wrong person who took her, maybe even willingly in the beginning. FBI involvement IMO says enough, most of the time they are not show up in "a girl just took off" scenario, there must have been aspects to the case that were alarming. The fact that she was found in Arlington Texas is telling. I wonder who was with her when she was found. Nothing about any arrests made.
