FOUND Marie posted:

“The Seattle police found an abandoned computer along with numerous personal ID documents including passports and social security documents for both Vivian and Jake in a café. This is what triggered the concern for the young couple. The police found Vivian and Jake in Oregon. The local police made a wellness visit. Vivian assured the police she was fine and plans to stay with Jake. The family is relieved to know both of them are OK. The kindness of so many towards this situation is heartwarming. I’d like to thank the Facebook community for your diligent support over the last few days.”

Vivian left a message on her Facebook page:

“Wow, this is so ridiculous. I’m alive and doing very well. The police knocked on my door last night to do a wellness check and informed me that I was reported as a missing person. I left town and changed my number on purpose. My overbearing, control freak of a mother disapproved of my boyfriend and my life choices, so my parents harassed us to the point where my father now has a warrant out for his arrest (on top of his DUI) because he threatened to kill Jake, all due to the fact that I refused to speak with them. But heavens forbid I not want to talk to my “concerned” parents. So Jake and I left town and changed my number out of fear for my boyfriend’s life, as my father has a license to carry a firearm permit and keeps a Glock in his car at all times (in case he runs into trouble in the “hood” while location scouting for NCIS etc)… but don’t forget he’s an alcoholic as well. My mother is jobless, purposeless, friendless – a complete hermit. She doesn’t leave the house and makes my dad do all the shopping for her while she sits at home day after day and watches the media. I’m her only connection to the outside world, so when I took that away from her because I was tired of dealing with her constant beratement about my life choices, she lost her mind. After a few days of camping in a beautiful location outside of the state, and some much-needed peace and quiet after all that bullshit, I sign back into my email to find all this. If anyone is truly concerned for my well-being, they can look into my missing persons case and see that it’s been dropped, now that the police have confirmed I’m alive and happy. This is a huge embarrassment. I can’t believe my mother did this to me. Please delete these posts about me so I can move on with my life.”

Is there a serial killer in New Orleans East?

Since you’re here

I have a small favor to ask. More people are reading Missing Persons of America than ever and asking for their family member to be shared. I do it because I believe that every single missing person matters, and they all need equal attention. It can’t be done any quicker, and with less boundaries than social media. Last year, I was bombarded daily with more and more cases to share.  I found myself falling behind as I work 10 hours a day to feature missing people. Also, the network has grown so large that we are in need of an internet host that can serve the growth, so the website does not go down. Many don’t realize that Missing Persons of America independent, investigative posting takes a lot of time and hard work to produce. Frankly, I need funds. If everyone who reads this website, who likes it, can help, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support Missing Persons of America and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
