Alexis Murphy, Missing

NoteBlogger Suzicate from the Water Witch's Daughter asked if I would publicize the following case of a missing teen in Virginia.

Also, I am preparing to travel to Padre Island, TX for a week at the beach so I won't be around too much. My apologies.

Missing: Alexis Murphy

Seventeen-year-old Alexis Murphy was last seen last Saturday night (August 3) when she indicated to family that she was going shopping in Lynchburg, VA.

She has not been seen by her family since.

Authorities publicized her vehicle and license plate, and the car was found late Tuesday night abandoned in an old Carmike movie theater parking lot in Charlottsville, VA.

Alexis' family is concerned since she has no history of previous disappearances, appeared to be excited about starting her senior year of school later this month, and was scheduled to play in a volleyball tournaments this week.

The Nelson County Sheriff's Office (VA) is being assisted by the Virginia State Police and the FBI with the investigation.

The missing girl was last seen "wearing a pink blouse, floral-print spandex pants and brown boots. She was also carrying a dark and light colored grey purse."

She is described as being a black female with black hair and brown eyes. She stands about five feet, seven inches tall and weighs about 156 pounds.

My prayers are with Alexis and her family during this trying time.

A very sad story...I too hope for a GOOD ending to this.
And I suppose our 24/7 news media makes it seems like we're seeing MORE of such things.
Perhaps we REALLY are, and the technology makes it easier to bring MORE stories like this to light.

Maybe a citizen will spot her.

We can hope.

Stay safe.
