I know this is alittle unusual to post in the lounge, but a young girl in a town nearby hasn't been seen since Friday after school and they really have no idea how far away she could be as she had contact with someone from FL minutes after she was last seen. I am hoping posting this here that someone somewhere across the country may see her and be able to help with a safe return.

Here is the Facebook page that has been set up (if you accept the invite and "attend" it will show up on your page so others on FB will see it so we can get the message spread even faster) http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=127265887295824

Here is a link to helpfindmychild.net page also set up with some information.

If I see any new information/updates I will try to remember to post them here.

Thank you for everyone that reads this and takes a look at her picture.

Oh, how sad and scary for both her and her family. I'll say prayers for her safe return. Please let us know what happens.

As I am sure everyone knows, she was found yesterday (Sun 6/6) in Jax Fl with an adult male she met on Facebook.

this just confirms how naive children are. She met this guy on facebook and left to met him. I just have to say Parental controls!! Facebook is NOT safe! Glad her parents got her home safe though. This could have ended very bad.

So glad she is ok!!!

This is precisely the reason why I can't access Facebook (oh the friends and conversations I miss) and can't see youtube videos (oh the tutorials I miss), because I have children who have internet access and everything is blocked from our computers!

CC is the only "social networking" site allowed on the computers in our house (thank God my DH allows that lol)...my kids go on neopets.com and they have email on there that is pretyped, so they can only send preworded messages...........well, the kids found a way around it and were emailing (my 10 yr old son) a 43 yr. old guy who said he was "taking over his son's account" on NEOPETS (aimed at 4-14 yr. old kids)..........Our filter intercepted the email and sent it as an alert to me and my dH's email and we saw the guy's email to our kids......it was harmless but CREEPY........his email said.........."I've been busy all day cleaning up this computer getting rid of viruses so it doesn't freeze up when I'm playing games, other than that it's been boring....how was your day?? You guys been up to anything interesting??"

WHY would a 43 yr. old want to talk to my 10, 8, and 6 yr. old??????? CREEPY!!!

Parents can't be TOO careful these days!

I get annoyed when I get friend requests on facebook from people I haven't talked to in 20 yrs. because I SOoooooooooooo want to be on there..........but my children's safety is more important and if that's a sacrifice I have to make, then I'll make it!!

My kids are good kids and don't TRY to get on sites we tell them to stear clear of, but they're kids and sometimes they don't have to look for trouble.....sometimes it finds them (which was the case with this guy emailing them!)

Oh My! This is so scary. I often think that I shouldn't let my son open or use such social media sites. The internet gives us great great information about lots of things although it can definitely be a disadvantage, if we're not that careful. Good thing though the girl was safely returned to her parents.
Thanks for the update!

I am really glad they found her! Now, I wish they would find that little boy in OR! It has been 5 days!

Wow, good thing she was found safe. Parents should constantly warn their children about talking or going somewhere with strangers.

Khalstead, not sure if you're aware of this or not, but if you set up a seperate user account for your kids and another one for you, you can set up the internet access differently for each account.

My BF is in the IT field and when he does personal computers he ALWAYS suggest that the kids are on a different account and then you can block the social networking sites on their account (plus a lot of other things) but you can have them available on your account.

Our kids are not old enough yet, but we have one computer set up with an account for his nephews so when they come over they can get online, but they can't access most of what we can. We limit it even for them when they are here.

we have it that way too............they have a separate log in and honestly they can only access about 2 websites and we get a log of everything they "try" to access. However, my 11 yr. old has found his way around the separate login once so just to be doubly safe it's blocked completely.

My DH and I don't want porn popping up when we're online either, so I appreciate the protection most of the time!

You tube is too broad, if you search for something innocent you almost always get something X rated popping up along with it, that's why it's blocked.

I kind of snooped around asking questions, I wanted to know where he had pitched a tent for her (I live not too far away). I was appalled, he lives in an area of town known for drugs, rapes, and drive-by shootings. This child probably doesn't realize how vulnerable she really was aside from this pervert she was entrusting her life.
