    This is a scary one--missing for this long, how much did LE do in the beginning? They prob just thought she was a drug addict on a binge, who lied about going to rehab. But she could be with some very dangerous people doing very dangerous things.
    **Caveat : A young lady I taught in preschool, only 35 yo, just died yesterday of drug OD and her organs had been failing for months :( (Due to long-term drug use)

    You can google her name with her legal name and "mugshot" to pull up the records (they are numerous) but it looks like her arrests and jail time all end in 2019. Nothing for 2020.

    It's a hard read as it seems this article slipped right on by the editor's desk. :confused: MOO Nonetheless, it's filled with important information regarding Krista. I hope the reward money will get folks to start talking.

    Awww, this breaks my heart. And it's so true. Too often we see cases that get too little attention, if any at all. Krista sounds like a sweet soul. I hope they find her and that she gets the help she needs. Unfortunately though, statistics show it's likely that won't be the case after all this time. :(

    Nearing one year since Krista Garrett went missing, family finally talks
    Krista, an introvert, did not have any friends. Her family was all she needed. Lowe describes her personality as shy and quiet. Although Garrett has run into trouble before, she wants her to know she is not the sum of her past.

    “She has had a history of drug abuse and she kind of always been wayward, but she’s still a human, she still has a heart, she still has a soul and we she deserves to be found and we deserve to know where she is,” she said.

    Snip

    Yet through it all she wants Krista to know, “That I love her and that we want her home, and we are not going to give up, the detectives are not going to give up, we are not going to give up until we have answers.”

    And the saying is true with this family, " Love knows know reason, no boundaries, no distance”.

    You make a very valid point, imo. She could very well be in a dangerous situation. I hope they get some traction under this story.

    **Sorry to hear about your former student. My condolences to you and her loved ones.
