I refrained from comment yesterday when the alert was posted avoiding consternation for saying "she will be found" because, though all Amber Alerts have to be taken seriously, it is becoming the norm (e.g. for kids in G'burg & the Village w/increase in such alerts) to take off on whim w/o telling anyone. If anyone watched Towne Hall mtg other nite when question was asked by Councilmember Floreen "how many of you have curfews", not one 17 or under raised their hands. That was an eye opener! We don't have a 'teen problem'; we have a 'parental (lack thereof) problem' Parents, know where your children are; learn who their friends are; set boundaries. And, when boundaries stretched, impose restrictions. We ARE the adults. Not our preteen & teenage children!
