I didn't get to say thank you this morning, but waking up and finding a mailbox full of kind thoughts was wonderful - thank you!

And now - trying to spread a little good karma by helping out cyloran, and using the power of the Internet to get the word out; I hope you don't mind:
PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD!
On Sunday, Sept. 18th, 17-year-old Monica Rose Sharp was walking her dog in Richmond, VA's museum district. Her dog returned home to the 3100 block of Grove Avenue without her, and Monica hasn’t been heard from since.
My family has known the Sharp family for many years, and Monica is a friend of my nieces Amy and Emily. Understandably, they are taking Monica's disappearance very hard.
Monica is a sweet, friendly girl. She is African American, 5'2" tall and weighs about 210 pounds. She also has clinical depression and has now been without her medications for over a week. Without that medication, she is in an especially fragile state of mind.
Richmond police believe that Monica may be the victim of an internet predator. Monica may be with Jeffery Nichols, 57, who may be driving a green, four-door 1999 Oldsmobile Alero with Illinois tag 6219015.
PLEASE help us to find Monica and bring her safely home!!
If you have any information, please call Richmond police at 804-646-5100. Or contact the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST.
