  • Damn. Hope that they’re found safe.

  • Sure been a lot of girls gone missing from northCal. Sex trafficking? Whatever the cause let’s hope we can put in end to it soon. I’m appalled.

    • Honeydew Bridge C.H.U.M.P.

      Bohemian Grove does those sacrifices there when the world leaders meet and worship the owl.

  • Picturing them home safe

    Oh please let them be found safe very soon!!
    Theres a definite issue with girls and women going missing, there are some sick dudes out there. Plus a lot of value questions as to why the cases go cold and seem barely worked on by authorities.
    Unfortunately it seems like we need to start teaching self defence to girls age 10 and up.

  • I’m so praying these beautiful young ladies are found. I hope their not run aways.

  • Praying for them to return home and a good outcome to this story. Praying also for the family and friends of these girls. This is happening all too often these days πŸ™ Sickening and scary. Even when the kids run away or stay away from home on their own it is a terrible feeling of fear in wondering what could have happened to them. Heart breaking.

  • Kym, I am trying to update my image but can’t get it to post even after choosing file. ????

  • Phew!!!! GREAT news!
    Hope it is a teachable situation for those girls and other youth.

  • Outstanding!!!! SO Glad to hear these young ladies were found, hopefully uninjured!!!

  • Best news!!yay. πŸ’•

  • They did not get kidnapped They ran away because their parents wouldn’t let them be together, they are bi. I go to school with the one in the white Katrina and I can’t believe this happened

    • Many children that are LGBTQ + COMMUNITY run away or are kicked out by their identity. Putting them at risk. And I think that the parents really need to know that their issues with a child who identify as LGBTQ + ; are putting their children at risk.

  • Glad to hear they are safe!

  • I am so happy they have been found with the help of everyone and the police. I hope these girls have learned a hood lesson. It is a jungle out there and animals, not the ones who live in the jungle. I am so happy they are home safe.

  • Blessings their home safe and sound .
