    What gets a person outside in her pajamas with her cellphone? CNN never gives enough information. Was there bad cellphone reception in the house? How come we are just now hearing about this. Why tell us something after 24 hours has passed? So we can tell you where to find her body?
    Throughly search every house within 2000 yards. Tear apart walls. There's a psycopath nearby.

    When did the missing young woman arrive at her parents? Is that her real father and real mother? There's no way she would leave without telling someone. A stranger or not? No stranger and did she have enough time to meet someone near her house? Go out 3000ft with a circle then one at 2000 ft. Search every house and building in 1000 foot ring. If you find nothing then something happened in that house on Thursday night.
    I can say this because I don't have smoke screen. Plus if someone is picking her up, she would be prepared and means telling her family she is leaving. They can not make up a suspect because the police could prove that as being false so they say she left with her cellphone.
    Who was the last person outside the father and mother to see her?
    Yes I am making them number one suspects and I think something happened the night before. Sorry, her leaving without saying anything doesn't make sense. It gives the parents the ability to hand the police 150 million suspects though.

    Thank you Ernie. I asked a similar question hours ago. He's an attention seeker and a good subject for follow up not just by CNN but also law enforcement. No idea why CNN permits his posts; he is easily traced & blocked.

    Because you see Ernie, this is America, if it were China or Saudia Arabia CNN would not be allowed to let regular Joes like you and me do any posting that those governments found offensive. Bloggers have been saying nasty things about America, but you know Ernie, its ok. We have freedom of speech and CNN's willingness to allow us to express ourselves. And yes Ernie that includes Mehdi General Dr Bad.

    Cesar, I suppose I must agree with you. On the other hand, the saying, "freedom without responibility is doomed to fail" would seem to be fulfilled before our eyes. Thankfully I still believe that good does trump evil in the long run & there are more "good people" in the U.S. than evil. But I would defend any website's "right" to reject posts that were over the top in offensive language. But "freedom" is more important than my secnitivities, so I concede the point.

    I usually do not even respond to things like this but YOU are way out of line in your comments. by the way...FAR too much time on your hands to make so many comments! Take the time to know what you are speaking about and also put it all together and try to get some fresh air and exorcise really works for the anger that is coming across.
    Sincerely....Mehdi General Dr Bad......
