It's a beautiful September day, just the sort of early autumn Friday that makes you feel happy and carefree.
But there's a young teenage girl from our neighbourhood that has simply disappeared, practically from our doorstep. The media's camped out in the front of the school - I noted this morning from 5 different channels - and every kid I walked by this morning was talking about it. Now mind you, the media only grabbed hold of it yesterday and she has been missing since Monday morning. Mounted police were out searching the running trail yesterday - Charlie was delighted with all the horse poop on the basketball court.
It's all questions. Why do the police take so long to step up the search? And, the biggest question - where is she? Please let her be okay. That's all I got. Please let her be okay.
