Maybe it will be a lucky day and some great news or a lead..? People check your security cameras last week 3/2- present to see if you have any video of A.J.

    Why does this article refer to her as a girl? She is 18, that’s an adult. I am sure she is just fine. Probably just chilling with her “bae”. This isn’t really even newsworthy.

      Do you even personally know anything about this story…her bae as you call him is sick with worry…use your head…no wait your heart this is someones loved one . Every thought has been given to every possible idea of what could have happened…the family is just trying to get everyones help to find an answer of peace. If it was your mother, sister , girlfriend, or “bae” that no one had heard from in almost two weeks, its nice to the kindness of everyone would pull together to help you as well. From the ignorance of feeling from your response to the article i expect no less then a cold heartless response to this…alls that i am asking is please consider the feelings of the family. Sometimes whats thought doesnt always need to be spoken.
