@fir4ufor3rd Thanks for your question. I published the article with the information the police gave the media right away, as I thought people should know about her missing as soon as possible, and am working on getting additional details. I'll update the piece as soon as I know more.

Is there no update on this article? or on the article about the two teens that have been missing since January.

@lois, thank you very much for your comment. I'm looking into both cases and will update the stories once I know more.
