Kyree, I did tell the police, and I stayed after school and talked to the detective. So i think you should learn the info before accusing people.

Btw. People have talked to her..but she wont tell anyone where she is. So i suggust you learn all the info before telling people they will be going to jail etc The people that know anything actually have been talking to the police

Now im assuming Destiny wasnt late to school becus the bus dropped her off in front of the school with the rest of the kids on time. Now y was the father dropping her off a second time at ten?

I find it weird that she was dropped off a little before 10 when we only had 1 midterm and was leaving by 9:15 ish. So either with with friends somewhere or just bounced. This is my opinion.

Just keep the family in prayer.......theirs nothing for everyone to figure out. That why that have police and detectives to do that job... It's obvious that she's a run a way........now everyone can get back to their own life with their own family problems ...(cause I'm sure everyone over 18 have many)
