It’s pretty amazing to see the power of social media being used the way it has to return the young woman, who ran away, back home to her worried parents. Great News!


I I don’t care about the details I’m just happy that the child is safe there are too many children that come up missing and that are never seen again or when they are found their found dead thank you Jesus that this child is found safe and alive

Looking for Mike and Destiny to take a walk through the neighborhood and take down the “Missing Child” posters.

Or, you know, you could just take down the ones you see. As a concerned citizen.

No details on where or how she was suddenly “found”? Was she really “missing” in the first place?


Her boyfriend was also missing, they came back together, apparently they both run away together. Her boyfriend was saying all over facebook that they both have problems with her father and they only came back because of his family. His family was also sharing the post so it must be true. By the way, a missing person report was also filed against him, the police were looking for both of them.
