  1. Shame on this girl for bringing so much stress and heartache to her family. She's lucky they will take her back. I'd personally let her butt stay on the streets, make her BEG to come home.

  2. whoever you are that wrote this you shouldn't listen to the news, not everthing you hear is true we love her very much and if you truly knew her you would know she didn't run away.if you have nothing nice to say please don't say it……

  3. We love you emily and hope your safe wish you would let someone know your ok and I pray you are you are on my mind allways ever since you were little and helped me cracked eggs for bay county every morning

  4. is there any updates on Emily? I agree with the post above… shame on you for writing such nonsense! you should of kept your fingers off the keyboard… you are looking like a total idiot who knows nothing about why children leave or get taken… prayers to all involved and please never mind the small minded people…

  5. Okay is it just me or do we have a large amount of missing young girls, all similar in appearance and age, 5 from Pensacola in less than 3 years and now in and around the Southport, Callaway and Panama City area with another 4-5 girls vanished since 2004!?
    It alarms me that the investigators have yet to solve a missing person case and are too quick to label these poor girls as runaways then take days sometimes weeks before these lost girls are reported on the news. I understand it must be hard to investigate these cases but I truly believe the public are given minimum information and it clearly results in dead end leads because your not able to jog peoples memories with just a date and location, maybe its the things that you don't think matter that can help the public cast their minds back to coming forward with information they didn't even think was important!
    This girl did not runaway, somebody would have seen or heard something by now, shes 14………running away is one thing but leaving Facebook,Ttwitter, Instragram etc behind is no believable, especially as 2 of her pictures are 'selfies'…..so I feel we need to rethink her reason for taking a bag!? No girl is gonna pack a bag unless she knows she is going somewhere and that she has a ride! Somebody would have seen a 100lb girl walking down a highway with a packed bag don't you think?
