Missing Girl

What in the world is wrong with people? There is a seven year old girl missing in my town. They believe she was abducted walking home from school on Monday. My heart breaks for her and her family. I really have no words, but I wanted to put this out there for all to see.

Amber Alert

Update: They found a child's body, but are not positive it is Somer's.

Update 2: They are now saying it was a little girl's body they found in a landfill. Although they have not come out with a positive id, they have changed this from a search and rescue to a criminal investigation.

How does this happen? You are walking home from school Monday and they find you in a landfill Wednesday. What kind of horrible person could do something like this?

Last Update: They did ID the body as Somer Thompson. Horrible.


  1. How sad! I hope they find this little girl safe and sound!!!

  2. how very scary! i hope she's okay and is found soon.

  3. I just found your blog, read this article and got sick to my stomach. For the life of me, I can't understand how anyone can treat the precious life of a child as disposable. It breaks my heart. I have a 3 1/2 year old and stories like these make me terrified to let her out of my sight or even turn my head away from her while we are shopping together.

    I'm so sorry for Somer's family and for the life she will never get to experience.


  4. Stories like this always break my heart. :-(

  5. It goes without saying that this is a senseless tragedy, but I'm wondering why parents let a seven year old walk a mile home from school alone?

    I don't have children, and I don't know the situation, but I have a hard time understanding how they would allow that to happen. I'm not saying it's the parents fault, I just can't believe they'd let her do that.

  6. Stacie- I have always said that when I have kids, I will be driving them home from school. I guess what happened is that she was walking home with her brother and sister and got into an argument with her sister and ran off. She dissapeared after that. Here, if you live less than 2 miles from the school you have to walk or have someone drive you. There were over 70 sex offenders in the 2 miles they had to walk to school.

  7. Heartbreaking. Prayers for her family and friends...
