Body of honor student missing since December found, father says

The body of a 17-year-old honor student from North Carolina - missing since December - has been found in a Maryland river, her father said Thursday.

Russel Barnes said that a female body found Wednesday in the Susquehanna River in Maryland is that of his daughter, Phylicia Barnes (pictured). The father said he'd learned as much after talking with authorities.

The teenage girl said she was going out to get something to eat and maybe a haircut when she left a residence in Baltimore where she'd been staying with her half-sister, according to that city's police.

Later, authorities said they feared that Barnes - who is from Charlotte - had been abducted or otherwise harmed. She'd left her debit card where she was staying, and hadn't answered her cell phone since her disappearance, her mother, Janice Sallis, told HLN's "Nancy Grace."

  1. God (If I were)

    I think when I sentence Lucifer to punishment I will not give him what he wants which is being the head honcho in hades. I'm just going to lock him up in a tiny little space by himself forever with no light, noise or other souls to torment. Those that were seduced by him will obviously need to be punished, but eventually they should try to be saved. Satan is in for a boring existence. I think I will dangle stuff he likes in front of him to tease him before casting him back into darkness. Why not have fun with the guy.
