Beyond crazy...

Friday night Ray and I went to his work's company Christmas party. It's always held after Christmas because people have less going on then. His brother who works with him, John and his wife, Cathy, went too. We took separate cars and stopped by their house when we went home.

Imagine our surprise when they found their 17 year old daughter missing. Her dinner was on the table and she hadn't taken a coat. The only thing gone was her purse and cell phone. The police were called and a missing person report was filed when we were unable to locate her anywhere.

We spent the entire weekend making calls and searching for her. Saturday seemed like an day of endless calls and waiting for return calls. Cathy and I spend a lot of time crying and trying to support each other. Sunday morning I got up and got 100 copies of a missing child flyer made up and delivered them to all kinds of places. More calls. More searching the computer. More waiting for return calls. And more calls. It was emotionally exhausting.

We finally got a different name thrown at us late Sunday evening. No last name, just a first name this time. Wow...lets make it hard, huh? More searching on the Internet and I found two guys in Facebook with the same name. I did some searching and phone calls. I finally got a name of a street. Ray and John went there this morning and waited for officers to arrive. Courtney was found inside and returned to her parents. As of right now, they are downtown dealing with the legal side of it all.

If the information I have is correct and this guy is 20 years old...well, he has a LOT of explaining to do. Not to mention the relative who knew all a long where she was and did NOT tell anyone! I know who not to trust, especially with my child, from now on. This family went through hell thinking that someone had snatched this girl and were doing terrible things to her. ANYONE who had ANY information is less than a fleck of the white on dried dog poo. I'd use stronger language, but I think you get the idea. Let's just say I will have absolutely no respect for or trust for this person/people ever again. Their behavior was just despicable and absolutely UNFORGIVABLE!

I will never ever understand someone IN THE FAMILY having knowledge about her whereabouts and not telling anyone! Her mom and dad were going through hell! UGH! I know, because I was there and I was feeling the fear and terror too, and I'm not even one of her parents. I feel nothing but disgust towards the person who lied to us and told us they knew nothing while they knew where she was the entire time!

I'm glad that the girl is home with her parents for now. Unfortunately, I suspect she will do this again. I hope that her family and some counseling will help.
Regards, Bill
