last time i was on myspace it said 22nd but still WE MISS YOU SHELBY! and she may have left her cell behind cuz she dont want to be found and she very smart she knows that a way to track people if they needed to (im not saying thats what happened but its a possibilty) and also maybe she didnt think it through very well she was just in a hurry and grab the main things that important that she thought she might need (money might be helpful though) depending on what she planned on doing though

From her dad's FB this morning

Steve Coatney: There will be another search this morning for shelby in the woods near her moms home. I am petrified once again. I believe she is still alive, that is all I can accept. I also think there is a possibility she is in the claremore area. Someone also has reported seeing her walking around the streets of salina. Please any...body and everybody, watch for my little girl and listen to your kids.

It's been confirmed, she's been found dead from a self inflicted gun shot wound. My heart aches for these parents. I'm praying for you ALL!

I do not know this girl or her family but I was raised in Pryor and graduated highschool there. I recently had a baby girl and this story made me very sad for her parents and friends because I can not even begin to imagine what pain they are going through. I will be praying for everyone affected by this tragedy and I hope God brings you some comfort. RIP Shelby, you have so many people who care about you.

There is nothing in Pryor worth killing yourself over. The parents and authorities need to physically walk all these 'I know but I ain't telling' kids through every possible place this child could be lying dead or hiding out. I bet her home life was nothing unusual, working parents with an assortment of bills and worries just like the rest of us. Teenagers need to concentrate on school, and indulge in less drama. Help around the house and keep busy in a positive way.

My daughter is one of the friends people have been cutting down for telling what they know. I think these girls are brave for helping the investigation. It angers me when I see negative comments. You do not know what has been going on in this town or in the homes of the girls closest to Shelby. So I beg you to please keep your negative comments off of here. The kids are going thru enough! Thank you! REST IN PEACE SHELBY COATNEY!!! Your friends love you and you will never be forgotten and they will all honor you and your name!!!! Lime green will never be the same. Nor will reeses!
