    Lord keep this young girl safe, but people 14th was she schedule too, start high school or just wanted too, hang with her wannabe friends she in someone house, or apartment phones, still work in Illinois buses are running, and trains see when you think you grown thenwhen you do grown up things like not letting anyone know you are ok. safe and don’t worry the girl didn’t do that now she listed as missing person good luck with this one. The choices this young girl makes now will determuned where she be in the next 4 years if she don;t get her head on right. It is dangerous out onthe south side espically in the area they stated she hang out at go home girl while you have a chances before your lie is no longer your are you working, in school which will start next month , Got Mother worried.

    God bless her Ilet’s just hope that she is pulling one of those teenage games,wanting to be with friends and maybe a boy(gsmith ans Tammy has some points).
    But in this day and time that could also not be the case. It could be a worst case scenerio where this girl isn’t coming home because she could be held against her will somewhere. Too many sick minded people out here in this world…not just that neighborhood. Too many missing children that are never found or found dead. Hope to God she isn’t going to be another victim.

    Probably with a predator boyfriend or relative

    She is most likely with one of her boyfreinds. These young black girls will spread their legs at the drop of a hat. Happens all the time. Hope she is OK!!!!!…!!!!!!
