I can't imagine why friends of the missing girl thought this thread might make things worse.

Hope you get your junior detective badge soon!

Please keep comments to well wishes only. This is taking some dark turns with some VERY insensitive comments and speculation.

If it turns out to be nothing I'm okay. I just can't believe people are harping about such a thing on a board and not wanting anybody to find out about it.

Yeah...because reporters, you know, like Nancy Grace, are always extremely cautious about making sure they have the facts straight before they report anything. Just as you made sure you had a solid rumor from a message board before you contacted them. Regardless or what the facts end up showing, I wouldn't feel good about setting this wheel in motion.

I don't agree with what you did, but I am going to stop because I don't want to be disrepectful to the people involved. I just wish we all could have stuck with prayers and concern.

For me, right now, the main thing I'd like is information. The speculation is just causing debate. So, if contacting CNN results in a public statement from DCL that is good. This message board can be accessed by anyone...so chances are a reporter has already read it; regardless if a poster sent the link to CNN. Maybe a reporter with decent contacts can persuade DCL to make a statement and put an end to the guessing and rumors. Help us out media....do your magic and inform the public.

That's what needs to be done.

this is the reason the crew members wanted this down. becuase it has snowballed into something horrible.
please refrain from passing judgement till an official statement comes out. untill then please continue to just keep her, the crew and family in your prayers.

This needs to stop! I asked nicely earlier but was completely ignored.

I do believe this should remain on the board as it is a concern and is regarding Disney Cruise Line but to continue to debate, make rude comments and personal attacks is not necessary.

Please feel free to post your concerns, prayers and best wishes as well as any facts but keep the bickering and rude comments to yourself.

After this post, any additional comments like this will be deleted.

Well I see it's now on Facebook, from the DIS so I guess it's not so private anymore. I just hope she is ok, or if not, that they have answers soon, so her family and friends don't have to wonder anymore.
