At last, some Aleacia Stancil news

You’ll recall that last year (almost exactly one year ago, July 28), I got an NCMEC notice that Aleacia Stancil had been found alive. No details. I had blogged about the case in 2009.

Well, almost a full year later there is finally news about it! See this: Missing Phoenix girl found alive nearly 24 years later.

It is about what I expected. I’m sorry Aleacia’s life has not been a happy one, though she might still be better off than she would have been if raised by her biological mother. I hope she has a happier existence going forward and can at least get ID now.

    Leaves me with more questions than answers. Why was she disoriented? And why wouldn’t she have id, if she was legally adopted?

      I don’t think it said she was disoriented, just that she knew almost nothing about her background, which of course she wouldn’t have.

      You don’t need ID to get adopted. She would probably have been adopted before she reached the age for a driver’s license or anything, and that’s usually the first government ID people get. To get a government ID you have to prove where and when you were born, and for her that was impossible.

      She would have been on her adoptive parents’ health insurance though.

    My heart breaks for Aleacia. When will people finally stop being so damn mean?
