If she is back why hasn’t anyone seen her. Or why haven’t we heard anything in the news.Really the community is really worried about this missing girl. And about letting our children out alone.

Hey “someone who cares” if that’s true what your comment says you need to report that to the proper agency’s so the situation there can be handled . If your making that up because you have a grudge with the mom you need to stop that because leave children out of “adult” arguments. Thats serious stuff. With that said pray for the child. Hope she’s found safe.

My thought exactly.
People want to come out the wood works when tragedy happens. If she is “some one who cares” she should have said something before. Not wait till its too late.
Or she just wants to be heard, probably knows none of them.
I pray for her return, safely. I’m a mother of 6, oldest, 19 now, ran away once, I knew where she ran too, not that sneaky, but still the feeling is terrifying I pray no mother ever has to go through that.
Praying for the child, parents, and family.
Get home home sweety

Someone who cares!

I know the girl she’s such a sweet girl her mother does not care at all. The girl takes care of her brother and sister and her mother does nothing. I hope she is found save and no harm done to her and she gets put to a better home acs should do to the mothers home and take her two other kids to a better home, something should be done to find Leslie because her mother isn’t doing nothing, I’m going to print out missing posters and put them up because I have not seen any it’s been a week since she is gone and nothing has been done

Signatures are being taken. It seems like her mother is not doing anything because from what I heard the little girl left with an adult male. So the signatures are going to be taken to the police so they activate the Amber alert.

Hello, If this is not allowed please delete. I am a parent and I am mad as heck! After my child was victimized by people that had been met online, I looked online for help. What you find online is …”Take away phones’ as well as ” Know all their passwords”. That is a joke when it comes to sneaky teens.
When we were young and our parents said “no”, we still found away. It is much worse now. Any device can be used as a phone and have social media apps. Everything can get deleted before you even know what they are up too. That was the case for me, I did not know what kik was. I regret everyday not being informed.
Between “Cyber bullying”, “child pornography” and human trafficking our children are available 24 hours a day. If they are getting bullied at school the safety of home is no longer there. I started this page to help other parents, caregivers and grandparents a sounding board. It is a non judgmental and informative page for anyone who cares about the young people in our lives. Education is the key. The internet is constantly changing and so are the threats. Lets help each other keep current.We cannot make te internet a safe place, we can make our kids more internet safe.https://www.facebook.com/ICPofWisconsin/

Miss lady, that’s some sound advice! That “kik” was what that lil 12 year old girl was on, when she met her first “bf”..her secret bf, ughh huh! She told her little friends, who were much younger than her, they were like 8, that she had a secret bf, and she was going to met him that night. Well, she did. She did just that. She fooled her parents into thinking she had gone to bed and went to sleep, but she crawled out her bedroom window, and left with that “secret bf”, a grown man, who was in college. He killed that little 12 year old girl that night, called his friend up to help get rid of her body! They dumped her on the N.C side of the state line. They were from Virginia. His ‘friend” was a NASA student…and friend was a girl! That POS that helped the boy get rid of the body, had kept the small childs little blanket she had took with her that night she snook out to met her secret bf! They in jail now!

I think that there are persons doing this, I say that because there were two boys and one girl and Leslie lost this week and my sister told me that a person call her friend and tell her to go outside, but she didn’t that’s lucky, but maybe are just other people doing this!!

She probably did. Face it, cops say “13 year old Hispanic girl, she is a run away”
Don’t make a comment if you have no idea what this kid has done or said before posting it here. Maybe she is trying to make some one listen.

Really some parents are worried and need to know if she is safe and safe enough for children to be out. Plus we are a community and I’m pretty sure many parents are willing to go out searching. My heart goes out to her parent whatever the situation might be.

Honestly, I know that the police have more connections than just this and should be able to find things in a snap. Why don’t they get off their butts, and start freaking searching for clues! This girl has been missing for more than a week already, and they haven’t found a SINGLE CLUE. They put cameras everywhere, so why don’t they just look into those cameras and find those clues?? If you don’t know why, it’s because they want money. Those police care more about money than a life in danger. Yes, sure, there may be some officers who are actually searching for the poor girl, but they can’t do much without the cameras. God pray for Leslie, and that she would be found soon. I hope she hasn’t gone through anything traumatic.
