    Doesn’t Metternich of the skin color she just took off from her own house blame the parents and stop with the bull…t . Don’t remember the last time I have seen article for a white girl a boy yes . But it’s all about the parents they have to approach the media and as we can see they didn’t cops had to.

    Too bad this news coverage will be the only thing this poor little girl will ever get, she’s not white, so therefore, the coast guard, the FBI and all the districts police, blood-sniff hound dogs and helicopters search 24/7will not be used here.

    A 13 yr old child should be in bed at 10:45 on a school night! Where are the parents and what have they got to say about all this? I notice in all these reports of missing children, they are always last seen in their homes, so something in very wrong with this picture.
