Do you have children? Regardless of race any child going missing and god knows what happening is a worst case scenario that can leave a community in shambles. Thank goodness this little girl turned up. And Long Branch, of which I have been a resident 7 years, is a huge town and we would no doubt need more than one school to accommodate all the children whether some where "dream kids" or not. And we all immigrated from somewhere to get to America. Have a heart.

On a side note, why is the moderator deleting my comments. Was it because I referenced an article in another paper that had more details?

A parents worst nightmare is a missing child. Everyday i see children that walk alone who should have a parent with them. Not only at school. I work retail and see it dailey. When this happen it made me sick to my stomach. i pray that parents wise up and start paying attention. I can imagine the stress the principal and teachers went thru. Thank god the child is alright.

Thank God she's is alright, but there are questions, how does this child who is not home all night, then end up in the school the next day. That sounds like a safety issue, and the parents of this child report it 1:30 in the morning, something does not appear to be right, unless the story is wrong????? My heart and prayers goes out to this child.
