    This girl right here is one of my best friends. Please, Please if anyone heres anything let the LCSO know. Her family and her two best friends are desperate. I just want to know if she's safe. I miss her so much. She was a great girl with a lot of potential and I want her back with us in Live Oak. It would mean the world to me and her family. So don't hold back any information. -Thank you.
