Sixteen-year-old Eden Fulmer was last seen on Tuesday at her residence in Paulding County, Ga. So far this doesn't appear to be a criminal disappearance as police believe the young woman is heading to Florida with her boyfriend, willingly. Nonetheless, it's important that her whereabouts be found out so as to eliminate the possibility of foul play.
Eden Fulmer stands at 5'2" and weighs around 120 lbs., with blonde hair and brown eyes. Police have "exhausted all leads" in this case and are seeking public assistance in finding her. With it being only a couple days since she vanished, it's odd that police have "exhausted all leads." This is indicative of a well planned disappearance whether she was willing or not.
Teen runaways are a dime a dozen it seems, and people often disregard these types of news stories because they're not "mysterious" enough to them. However, when a 16-year-old woman runs off on her own anything can happen. It isn't known whether or not her boyfriend is someone with whom she can be safe. There have been cases of girls running away only to be sold into human trafficking by the men they trusted. That is why cases like these are still important. Hopefully Eden has the maturity to call her family and let them know she is safe. If not, the search needs to continue!
