Panama City, Florida: Have you seen Emily Paul? The 16-year-old girl hasn't been seen since April 13, 2013 -- but her story is just now hitting media headlines. There are very few details in this developing case, which is disappointing considering she has been missing for three days. With each day that passes the urgency in finding her increases while the likelihood of finding her safely decreases -- as are the statistical facts. Hopefully this disappearance turns out to beat those statistics.
It should be noted that this young girl doesn't have a history of running away from home or disappearing, which is probably adding to the worry her loved ones are experiencing. The 16-year-old Florida teen was last seen Saturday morning in the Edwards Road area of Southport. It was very early morning -- around 6:30 a.m., -- but details regarding why she was seen this early or any other circumstances are not yet being clarified to the media.
Jerrie Dean at Missing Persons of America can be credited for her work sharing this story, but it needs more attention than what she and one or two media sources are currently doing. So please share the flyer and return to Gather News for frequently updated coverage on this missing teen's story.
