No Longer Missing

February 8, 2012

I had deleted this post and made another post A Person Frame of Mind, but I notice people were still being directed here because this was the only link everyone had, and the post was not permanently deleted thank goodness. Cherise has been found, her mother is picking her up in the Midlands. Thanks everyone very much for your help!

    So good of you to post this, Lora.

    Let’s hope the right people see it.

    Stories like this always get my stomach in knots.

    *praying too*

      I hope so too! I worry greatly over my friend’s daughter. I know how her heart must be soar just wondering what is happening with her daughter and if she is okay. Stuff like this physically make me feel sick and make me wonder what is going through people minds for them to have to abduct someone. I am waiting for updates from her and hope she get good news.

    I am alerts co-ordinator for and was passed this article via twitter. Hopefully I can find a police/verified news link to confirmed your information and then issue an alert via our system and through our contacts.

    • February 8, 2012 6:22 pm

      Sounds great every single help will count. If you have any questions please contact Cherise’s mother Mel via email or FB.

      • February 8, 2012 6:27 pm

        Unable to find anything reported via the police or news at the moment. If her mother could email us or contact me through Facebook with permission to issue an alert that would help. Otherwise we will have to wait until the police issue an appeal. Has the mother been in contact with the Missing People Charity yet? (

  19. February 8, 2012 6:32 pm

    Sarah, I just copy and paste your comment and email Mel also place it on her wall. I do not know all that she has done as yet. I woke up with the news that her daughter is missing and the information above and doing my part as a friend to ask others to help, ofcourse with her permission. All I know at the moment she is waiting on the police for updates regarding her daughter. I hope that she contact you soon so that you can help. Every single help counts.

    • February 8, 2012 6:33 pm

      Thank you. I hope we are not needed and she is found quickly. 😀

      • February 8, 2012 6:35 pm

        You are welcome and thank you…I hope so too. It has been a long day and longer for the Trueman family.

    also could anyone tell her what she was last seen wearing?x

  27. Susan Wood permalink
    February 8, 2012 7:38 pm

    You haven’t answered my request – how can you verify what you say? If it is as urgent as you claim, the local police would have it everywhere – they haven;t even tweeted it, but they have managed to tweet about some lass getting her leg touched the same day……something doesn;t stack up.

    • February 8, 2012 7:42 pm

      Susan you ask how can you verified my post. I have answer your question. Contact the source. Cherise mother Mel is the source. I am just doing my part as a friend and asking for anyone to help when they wish.

  28. gemma permalink
    February 8, 2012 7:38 pm

    just thought it would be easier to notice her if shes wearing the same clothes.

    • February 8, 2012 7:42 pm

      Very true, once Mel as reply back I will let you know and add it into the post.

      • February 8, 2012 8:10 pm

        Gemma this is the info Mel just wrote. I am trying to figure out how to make a Page on Fb since a few people have objection of me helping out my friend blog wise. But here is the info about the clothing: She was wearing black jeans and a grey South Wilts Grammer School Hoodie, it is distinctive in the fact that it has a list of all the girls names in her year at school in the shape of the number 11 on its back the whole length, she also had trainers on.

    1. No Wiltshire Police report
    2. No media release
    3. Facebook page 48 hrs old
    4. “” previously linked to a different FB page
    5. No other evidence to verify the story.

      February 8, 2012 7:44 pm

      I’m with TheTruthWIllOUt……….somehow I don;t see Salisbury Journal putting in an article about a hotel going into administration before a missing kid………

      • February 8, 2012 7:46 pm

        Then maybe you should ring the police yourselves to verify it. Police dont always release the info for many reasons. Asking the media and public for help is normally the last step when all else fails. Instead of crying Fake, look into it yourself.

    • February 8, 2012 7:44 pm

      Sorry, but you can believe what you want and that is not true. Her page is not 48 hrs old.

      I don’t understand a few of you. Why would a mother make up stories about her daughter being missing? What would she gain from it? I am sure she have better things to do. Why would I not believe my friend on what she say. She is asking for help and some of you are ready to bash her and call her a lie. Amazing!

  31. Susan Wood permalink
    February 8, 2012 7:53 pm

    Sarah…….you don’t know what angle I am approaching from………I am not crying fake, merely asking people to be careful until the story is verified. Especially as this person has released personal details to the whole world about her ‘friend’ – leaving them open to abuse from all kiinds of cranks and the email account then flooded with spam – making it impossible for the police to trace genuine emails – which may come from her allegedly missing child or the people who she was last seen with…….
    If it were you in this situation, how would YOU deal with it – perhaps set up a facebook group (see Sian O’Callaghan) and people can get the info there……..

    If this is genuine, the friend is not helping the situation, but making it VERY difficult for the authorities to do their work.

    • February 8, 2012 7:57 pm

      That wasnt just aimed at you Susan as you werent the one who actually said Fake and I completely understand which angle you are coming from. I also remember Sian and know the lady behind her Facebook page. I work for Social Alert Me (SAM). You do have a point as we have been told the police dont want the media involved so therefore although we arent the media we also dont have permission to release an alert. We now have to wait but as I have explained to the Mother, it’s already hit most of the Missing groups and spreading like wildfire through facebook and Twitter. Now it’s out of the police’s hands with regards to keeping it from the media

    Wlitshire Police notified of missing person hoax
    Facebook Page reported
    Your blog reported

    • February 8, 2012 7:57 pm

      You’re truly is a sad person. IF you have ever read any of my blog posts you would see that I am a genuine person and have no time into wasting people valuable time.

  33. Susan Wood permalink
    February 8, 2012 7:55 pm

    Ok then, Startingoveringermany – if you are genuine. Remove this link. Set up a facebook group and administer it from there.
    Keep your ‘friend’s details secret – do not leave them out there – they are PERSONAL.
    You should have thought more carefully before diving in – there are more effective ways of getting word across……..

    • February 8, 2012 8:02 pm

      Police contact details should have been the only contact supplied.

    • February 8, 2012 8:02 pm

      I did not thought about setting up a group page on FB. I am a blogger and I wanted to target the area that Cherise is missing to help find her. I am indeed a genuine person and is not trying to hurt the case but help. I had asked Mel for permission and she gave me the go. I have no problem in opening a group and you can join if you choose to do so. Once I have done so I will replace the post into a link for people to join if they choose so and we all can wait for the news there.

      • February 8, 2012 8:04 pm

        Page would be better, although groups you can add friends to with a page the person posting updates shows up as the Page name and it also shows up on peoples walls after they join, whereas groups dont do that unless you keep All notifications on

  34. February 8, 2012 8:13 pm

    Can someone tell me how to set up a Page on FB?

  35. February 8, 2012 8:26 pm

    A reader mention that it is not right for me to blog this story of helping my friend to have her daughter be found. Instead she said I should make it a Page on FB which I just did. The page link is

    A couple of people is saying this story is fake in which my heart knows it is not. No mother in her right mind will scream her child is missing and blast it online for help or mention it to others. My heart says my friend is sincere and I will follow her 100! and pray that her daughter return home safely.

    If you would like to join in the crusade of helping my friend I thank you if not no hard feeling. I sincerely thank all of you for helping.

  36. February 8, 2012 9:44 pm

    I had deleted this post and made another post A Person Frame of Mind, but I notice people were still being directed here because this was the only link everyone had, and the post was not permanently deleted thank goodness. Cherise has been found, her mother is picking her up in the Midlands. Thanks everyone very much for your help!
