Carol Sullivan Smiley wrote Unfortunately, I believe this young lady has passed.
Wanda Smale wrote MANY emergency responders, including a dive team, have been out on a search detail since 6:30 this morning. They are searching the area about 5 miles just northwest of me near/in the Welsh Mts. It’s a heavily wooded area. I’m hoping she has been hidden and kept alive up there.
Sarah Robinson wrote If they found her clothes buried in the woods, I seriously doubt that she’s still alive.
Danielle Marie wrote I drive through there often to visit my parents. This past week I saw many signs with her name. You can tell the people of Bird in Hand miss her, love her, and want to find her. So sad and terrifying.
Carol Sullivan Smiley wrote I pray to almighty God…to bring however, back to her family and May God grace them with his glory.
Erin Zig Gomulka wrote Well good job police, sounds like they have a lot of evidence as to who did it. Hope her parents can have some closure by having this monster admit where her body is. How extremely tragic, my heart goes out to her family.
Chieu Nguyen wrote The man sure got a long police rap sheet. He was relieved from prison too soon !
Linda Brooks Morton wrote The kidnapper had been in prison and was released because of covid. So they were concerned about his life and he goes out and does this. He needs the death penalty!!!
Shirley Goldberg wrote Heartbreaking so very sad prayers for a safe and speedy return Terry Bugden wrote Put him in a room & pour honey all over him & give him two choices: 1) Tell us where she is or 2) We let the 500 lb grizzly bear in the room with you. Hmmmm wonder which he would choose? When it comes to finding missing children-there should be no rules as to how to get the information out of these monsters.
Linda Lettau wrote Perhaps she has decited to live the English life. Alot of them leave after their year is up living English. And some go back home after they had their life experence. I pray she is safe and happy and not being missing or killed.
