She has now been missing for about 24 hours.
Yesterday was already a rough day because of the Boston Marathon bombing. News of a missing girl was also very hard to hear. This girl lives in and disappeared from my neighborhood. She goes to school with my daughter. It’s very difficult to wrap your head around, because it hits so close to home.
A large volunteer search committee was organized last night and started canvassing this morning. Let’s hope for the best.
POST UPDATE: Police found Charice Beaumont alive in Pleasant Grove, UT today. Apparently she rode a bike to Pleasant Grove yesterday and slept in a church last night. Today she knocked on the door of a house to use the phone and called her mom.
