PSA — Check on your friends and family!

Over the weekend I came across an unsettling amount of kidnapping posts on Facebook. I know that kidnappings happen, but most missing persons cases I have followed are mostly due to a few things: someone known to the victim has murdered them and hid the body, drug overdose/suicide in a remote location, or runaway.

Please, please, please, check on your friends and family if you haven’t heard from them in a while.

Also, always be aware of your surroundings.

*Note: times on posts are from when they were screenshot and not in real time

Little Elm, Texas

This woman made it out. Her identify hasn’t been released, and I’m not sure if the man has been caught yet.

Knoxville, Tennessee

Thankfully, the woman pictured has been found and she is safe.

Las Vegas, Nevada

A woman took to Facebook to try and locate her teen daughter. She said she was dropped off at the airport in Vegas but the teen never boarded her flight. Her mother later announced that her daughter had been kidnapped from the airport and was in California.

Chicago, Illinois

Thankfully, the little girl was not taken and the suspect caught.

St. Louis, Missouri

A woman was shot at and forced into a stolen vehicle. The woman nor the drive in this case have been identified. They are still on the lookout for this vehicle and the suspect & victim.

Since this has been posted, the suspect and victim in St. Louis have been located!
