No good news

Runaway update: They found his cell phone in Charlestown. It had all of our messages on it. Someone turned it into the police station there. His mom called this morning and spoke to the Girl for a few minutes. She's looking for any leads. He's been to Lowell and hopefully back, and he might be going to Somerville. It's like the kid is drawn to bad neighborhoods or something.

I was up almost all last night in a state of panic. This brought back a lot of the anxiety of when the Girl went through her skanky Russian phase. Thank God she came out of it OK and stronger for it. But the panic and anxiety I was feeling then came right back. I cried a lot last night, worrying for this poor boy and for his family who is so worried and scared.

The Girl is so upset and scared for her friend. All the kids in her 'group' keep calling each other for news. Nobody has heard much of anything, but they're all hanging in there. This is just so terrible.

Please pray that he gets home safely.

Oh my God... I tend to over react, but to me its a scary thing finding his cell phone, but not him. I will keep this poor boy in my prayers... (and his poor family as well!!)

I'm praying. Thankfully we have technology and networks today that make tracking someone a bit easier than it might have been in the past.

But it's no less of a heartbreak for those left behind.

I pray not only for your daughter's friend, but for your daughter and her peer group as well. And for you: parenting never seems to get easier, and you've had more than your fair share of challenges.

Shavua tov....I'll be reading and hoping.

That is scary, Margalit. It makes you wonder what goes on inside his head to make him run away like that. I've only known one person to do that and she had schizophrenia--which often results in that sort of behavior. Of course most runaways have other reasons to scoot out of home. Some inside themselves and sometimes the environment. It's so hard to know what to think...

Here from Michele.
We certainly will pray for this young man's safety, that he will come home and that he and his parents can work out their differences.

Wow, this is so scary. I will keep him in my prayers. Where was the cell phone found?

My parents are selling their townhouse in Charlestown. I'm pretty mad about it.

Sounds like a very stressful and scary time. I hope everything works out for the best and everyone becomes stronger from it all.

I know exactly how Girl is feeling. My sister ran away from home at 14, when I was 9.

She ended up safe, but she never came home.

I pray for the boy, and think of your Girl.

Ironic - our 16-year old daughter took off with friends Friday evening, hasn't been home since. We believe she's still around here, and hope it's a weekend stupid-binge. She's threatened to do this before but always chose to not do so. She recently found an "enabling" friend, one who apparently skips out for days at a time. So hard when one does this kind of thing.

"Michele sent me."

I haven't heard from my boyfriend in three weeks. I don;t think hes in danger, because this is just something he does, but I am still, to use your phrase, "outta my mind with worry." As well as anger and sadness.
