Well, that's a relief. Too many others (can't count them all but Sierra comes to mind) end with no info ever or with a dead girl found in some remote area.

Too many male predators are walking around unnoticed and arrogant. We need to pay attention people.

Seems like the family should contribute for the police effort to clear this domestic problem.
