Is there any word on the missing 12 year old girl? My daughter goes to the same school. This is very sad and scary..

Not sure. The police log only gave vague and limited details. The girl also could have returned home after the call went out. It's not clear, and I haven't received any press release from the police department. So hopefully this has been resolved.

Thank you Martin for always responding so fast. I hope all is well with the young lady and her family.
