let's kill this. Listing the name was not a good idea.

I'm very glad that Brittany Brown is home safe today. As a warning to other teenagers who might find themselves in that situation, I hope she has the strength and courage to tell others what happened to her.

Yeah, I hope she has the "strength" to stand up and say she got completely wasted and spent the weekend with a random couple she met in a bar. Or maybe she should just leave that one alone.

The cops should have known better. You don't investigate missing adults until they've been gone for MORE than 24 hours, not less. Every teenage girl's mother thinks they are very close and that she always knows what's going on with her kid. And they are almost all wrong.

She disappeared on Friday night. The police didn't publicize the case until Tuesday, which is 4 days later. I assume she missed work on Monday and Tuesday.

I'm so glad she made it back safe. Now the police need to find out the whole truth and get to the bottom of it

"Now the police need to find out the whole truth and get to the bottom of it"

Yeah? Why's that? Did *she* call for help? Did she require permission to "go missing?" Is she on parole or probation or something that requires her to check in with somebody before she has a wild weekend? Why exactly does she owe anyone any explanation of what she did with her time?
