This is not something I would typically post at MHH.....

A friend of mines daughter disappeared on her 17th birthday September 18. It is most likely that she snuck out to meet someone she made contact with on the internet. We all know how dangerous this can be. She has not returned home, she took her cell phone and laptop with her but has not had the cell phone on so can not be traced that way. We are very worried about her. She's adopted and there are quite a few reasons she doesn't use good judgment but no matter what her family is frantic. Their most important concern is to just hear from her and know she is ok.

No one knows who she meet or where they are. I suspect she is no longer in this area and could be anywhere in the USA. If you feel inclined please take a look at the following link and take note of her. If you feel so inclined you can post the link on your Facebook. Honestly looking for a 17 year old in the USA is almost impossible because no one even knows where to start. Since she took the lap top they can't use forensics to trace sites etc she has been on although it is known she has been on at least two "dating" sites (not the best ones either)

While I wouldn't want us using MHH for an endangered missing child alert base all the time........at the same time I feel I must use whatever resources I have available to help my friend. Thank you for your kind understanding.

She has been found. We always knew she left with someone or met someone to leave but not who. So hard to know if she was "safe". She is with someone of not the best character but because she is 17 there is not a lot to be done about it.

It is so good to at least know she is alive and where she is. The rest will hopefully work itself out over time.

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers!!

Glad to know she has been found! Hope the situation can be worked out to her best interests. Seventeen is still young.

Thanks for the update. They think they know it all at 17 and it's sad she is making such choices that put her in danger. I am thankful to hear she has been located.

I pray there will be communication between her and her parents, so the issues can be worked through. Right now, at least she is safe.

Just saw this thread and relieved to see she was located!!! I remember making a lot of risky decisions when I was a teenager and shudder to think about how trusting/lucky I was now!
