How could she have been a student at MVHS "several years ago" when she is only 17. I am pretty sure 10 year olds cannot attend the high school.

several years ago, probably meant she attended freshman (maybe soph) year but left/dropped out/quit?

Sorry for the confusion. School officials told us this morning that Tamara attended Mountain View High School as a freshman.

Hi, my name is Jamisha Davis. I am 18 years of age, and Tamara and I were best friends from middle school up until she was... We had become distant over the last year after I moved from Mountain View to Oakland. She would often times come out here and call me once in awhile, come see me and we would hang out and she would be gone again, sometimes days, sometimes weeks. She never really would tell me what she was up to, but after various signs i knew. The only thing i thought i thought i could do was just show her that I was her friend regardless and assure her that she could still become the doctor that she always said she wanted to become. Tamara was a sister to me and I lost alot when she left us.... Continue to pray for her family her Mother, Father, Sister and Nephew especially. We have all suffered a great lost.
