Beth called her Dad. Praise God and all your prayers! Where there is life there is hope.
It took a lot out of us to think that she was dead. We are fully aware that she was on a run and or manipulating us but it did take it's tole.
She did not have a good explanation. She did not ask for money yet but did mumble some half of an apology and promise to get back in touch soon. Dh told her that we thought she was dead.
I had an important meeting which I was just on my way to attend when she called. I cried my eyes out on the way over there. That is the way it is for me. I hold strong most of the time until the situation is somehow resolved, then I cry uncontrollably.
I left a message for the detective. I will call him again tommorrow to thank him. I think that knowing that the police were looking for her might have flushed her out faster. An active addict does not want the police after them that is for sure.
I do not feel very strong right now. I am just greatful to all of you and greatful that she still lives to try another day.
