  1. Tongue piercing? Nose piercing? Belly piercing? Dyed blonde dreadlocks? I say good riddance. Why are we bothering to look for people who are clearly trashy losers??

  2. Were u looking in the mirror when you wrote your immature remarks? I bet you are a barrell of fun to hang out with.. pray you are never in a position of being missing because someone could be writing the same thing about you.

  3. We need you Lord to rescue this young lady or to rescue the distressed hearts and minds of her family and friends by bringing closure. It has been too long. Show your loving kindness and tender mercies. You said in your word that a good shepherd cares enough to bring one lost sheep back. We believe in you and only you for her return in 24 hours of this message. Bless also that individual who is hurting so deeply that he or she can only offer malicious words on behalf of Stevie. In Jesus Christ's name we pray. Amen.

  4. Your coMpletely disgusting. This is someone I knew personally. A great person with Such a Big heart. She loved her friends and family with all of her. What she dressed like…. how many pierCings she had … mean NOTHING to the character that she is. I hope you find peace in that hateful heart of yours. And seek forgiveness.

    Stevie … please come home. Contact ANYONE anyway you possibly can. Your mother misses you terribly and we all want nothing but your safe return. We Love you. I pray you are safe and can make it home soon.
