  • A relief to hear a good outcome.


  • Thank God she is safe.. cant imagine the stress her family would have gone through


  • A good result. It is marvellous that she has been found safe and well.
    When a youg girl goes missing you tend to think of the worse case senarioes


  • 11 is young to go on an adventure like that. A lot of stress for her family. I’m glad she has been located safely.


  • yes it is a stressful time for the family but lucky for them that she is safe and that is the most important thing.


  • Glad that she is safe. Must have been a terrible time for her family wondering where she was. Kids just don’t realise the stress they put their family through.


  • Luckily! A little bit young to make such a decision not to come home, don’t you all think?


  • I’m so glad she was found safe
