    There are absolutely no leads no she is not been found nor has she contacted us know a no Amber Alert has been made either. I have requested for this to be put on the news and Amber Alert and every time I do I get told no I can’t have this done because the situation doesn’t meet their criteria. That’s bull she is a 14 year old child that has been abducted even though she might have walked out the door she was still taken regardless please help me fight these news people and get her picture posted on that TV so that she knows her mom and dad are looking for her again thanks for everything

      I have been asking the same question..We are having a 20 mile radius walk around Springfield tomorrow (Sat) at 11:00am. We are meeting at the Waffle House in Springfield. We will be passing out flyers and searching for any leads hoping to get her back home safe.
      Anyone that would like to join us or help in any way will be greatly appreciated. Let’s get this child back home safe.

    She has not been found. We have been helping the family pass out flyers all over Springfield and surrounding areas all afternoon. Trucking companies scanned the flyer and sent it out to all their truck drivers.
    Why is there not an Amber alert put out for this 14 year old child? Why is there nothing being done for this child?
