Did missing Moody teen Rachelle Brom run away from home? The latest details in her disappearance indicate that she willingly disappeared, but they could also be indicative of an endangered 16-year-old girl getting into something way over her head. She vanished on Friday evening, and with it being Monday, it's hard to imagine what she had on her mind the last time she was seen. Was she intending on coming back home before the end of the weekend? Was she planning on disappearing like so many other runaway teenagers?
Hopefully detectives investigate this disappearance to the fullest extent of their resources. It's not often that a young beautiful girl disappears from Moody, Alabama, so it's necessary to pay attention to this case so as to gauge what could be important in her disappearance. Were there any warning signs before she vanished that would indicate a desire to run away? Was her relationship environment at home strained? Did she have an "older boyfriend" who her family didn't approve of?
Did she have a history of disappearing or of being a juvenile delinquent? Was Rachelle Brom in any way known to meet guys off the internet or date less-than-nice boys? These kind of details could all point to what happened to the missing teen. Until the truth is known, it's important to look at all the possibilities.
