I found this article and this one about the 2002 disappearance of Kathrynn “Katie” Seefeldt from Independence, Missouri. She ran away from home, but she was only twelve at the time and no one has seen or heard from her since then. The police haven’t found any evidence of foul play, but nearly nine years of silence speak volumes.
I hope Katie is all right. I hope hears about herself and decides to call home. She’s 21 now and doesn’t have to actually return if she doesn’t want to, but her mom would love to at least hear that she’s alive.
