    More police PR. Have the parents and police spoken to her friends. Why is this being treated as serious news?

    This missing of young females is ridiculous..Kids decide to leave home and police manpower has to be wasted…parents should ne held accountable. And if they were lured away by men that too should be investigated..

      Parents should be held responsible when they intentionally use the police service as a sitting service to let their kids know they want them to come home. The kids should be made to do community service when they leave to have a good time. With all these false alarms the RBPF needs to perhaps have stricter rules and regulations for putting out a missing persons request. Someday someone (hopefully not) may pay the ultimate price due to all those crying wolf.

      The people harbouring them should be held responsible as well.

    The RBPF may be partly responsible for all these false alarm notices being published by not have strict enough guidelines for filling missing persons reports. There should be a certain criteria which has to be meet before a person can be determined missing. If there is none this will continue to happen.

      I am speaking from laws in the states here. An adult has to be missing for 24 hrs before it can be reported. A child odes not have to meet the criteria. Not sure of how long.
      What is the criteria there?

      There is a certain time period here as well. Not sure how long though.

      The 24 hrs wait in the US or anywhere else for that matter is a misconception, you do not have to wait 24 hrs.

    And why no photograph to help people easily identify her if they see her? uh mean who de hell remembers a written description of a person? Plus a written description could apply to many individuals, but a photo is far more reliable.

    You are absolutely right. Also the silly editors who run the nonsense as news stories. Since it is not public information.

    Kathy ann not anymore. it used to be 24 hrs but that was changed. its as reported now

    I’ve read some of the post. I do not agree with the 24 hours wait. That is why so many children are not found or found dead. I would rather waste the RBPF time and find the child out with a boy or ran away than to find that child dead. The first 24 hours is very crucial. Kids will be kids some crazier than some but we owe it to them and ourselves to protect them and so we have to find them if they are lost.
    “Hold the parents responsible” that is not right. Some parents do their best for children but this generation is different. Some of them are never satisfied. They want but don’t want to do what they suppose too to get what they want.

    The big question is why teenagers run away from home.
