Let's see, in that little time (last two weeks) many so-called missing persons turned out to be runaways and others not missing at all. These kind of searches take manpower and MONEY. How much money are YOU willing to put forth? The money used for searches is contributed by taxpayers. So, do you agree to increasing your taxes to do more searches without more information? I highly doubt it. Therefore, rules and procedures must be made and followed.

The police do not have any control on what Facebook does or doesn't do with their website. Facebook reserves the right to maintain and or remove private and public posts at their discretions. They also have internal rules and procedures they follow.

I know that it involving a child pulls at your heartstrings, but these events must be handled properly. If and I do mean IF there was any misconduct on the part of any authorities, that will be scrutinized and if need be investigated by state authorities. You, as well as 99% of the public at large are not privy to internal information concerning this event and to attempt to Monday morning quarterback it is wrong.

Yes, Amber Alerts have guidelines for when they decide to create an Alert. This case did not present such a cause, especially at the beginning. To bog down such a good helping system with hundreds of alerts would ruin it's purpose and ability.

A note this scared girl left in a hurry, WAS A LIFE AND DEATH CLUE!!
MONEY? YOU ARE NOT PUTTING A PRICE ON HER HEAD?
WAIT TILL THE LAWSUIT HITS THIS CITY!
If it takes more funding, NOW is the TIME to beef up on that account.
I NEVER HAD A GUN POINTED AT ME BUT AT 14 YRS OLD, I WAS PRESSING MY SCHOOL CLOTHES. The person took the steaming hot iron out of my hand and threathen to burn every inch of my body! THAT FEAR and the THREAT HE MADE, I had to give in to agreeing to get BAPTISED and join the s. Baptist Church.
I got baptisted 10 years ago for the right calling, when I was 50, in this city.
THREATS OF FEAR CAN MAKE YOU FORGET YOUR PHONE, HOW TO SCREAM, AND THIS girl JESSICA PARHAM WAS FOUND BY AN ANGEL OF THE LPD. GIVE THAT oFFICER A RAISE TO GO WITH HIS DUE PRAISES OF NOT IGNORING HER.
We haven't much but we can share a few dollars to the fund to be more involved in finding runnawys and missing people of all ages in Lewisburg.

Wow... now you are showing how uneducated you are and are responding with knee-jerk reactions. No one is putting a price on ANYONES head. It is called reacting rationally. Something you would not understand. Nobody said anything about a note in public reports. What are the grounds for a lawsuit? Again, it is not some budgeted account, it comes from the city/county that pays for the services, in paying overtime, gas, equipment and so on. To "beef" up what is paid to officers and other searchers, it can only come from increasing taxes. Wasn't it you that was just complaining about taxes being raised??? That your budget could not handle it? Your little story is so totally unrelated, why did you even bother to include it? No one had any idea of any fear the child may or may not have experience, then or even today. You are going way overboard as you usually do.

She was not found by any angel, she was found by someone familiar with the case who just happened to be at the fair with his family. Had he not gone to the fair he would not have seen her. Have your ever heard of coincidences?? And you wonder why people think of you the way they do. You over exaggerate everything. He doesn't deserve anything more than a pat on the back and a job done well entered into his employment record. Don't get me wrong, I am thrilled he was able to break the case, but it wasn't because he was working on it at the time. Anyone vigilant could have done the same thing. She was lucky someone who was trained to look, saw her. But let's give him a big fat raise and raise YOUR taxes.

Lets see, he took her to the zoo and then to a very public fair. Doesn't sound very kidnapping to me. He was charged with contributing to a minor, hello?
And wasn't it Mae who claimed about this so-called "intelligent girl", "She has a child's mind and hasn't matured in her critical thinking skills."? Which is it Mae? She just makes it up as she goes.

Trust me on this one: you have zero clue about any of this.

I know the authorities put allot of effort into this case and I know they did all they could have done. You are not "in the know" and neither am I but I'm calling BS on the whole "taken at gun point" crap. People taken at gun point do not leave notes saying they're leaving nor do they go with their abductors to the zoo or a fair. I bet everything that this whole story of abduction is crap and when the truth comes out we'll know she ran away with this guy, got caught, got scared, and made a big lie up to cover her butt. If she was truly abducted she would have made an effort to escape at some point but instead she was living it up. The guy she was with was wrong and deserves to be charged with something but I so do she cause she's not innocent in this.

I prayed and fell asleep. Life goes on even when we sleep.
JESSICA is ALIVE and a MAN is in jail.

GOD IS IN CHARGE.AMEN.
WE LOVE AND WANT TO RUSH TO HELP AND IT ISN'T WITHIN OUR REACH TO DO SO, SO WE DO WHAT HUMANS DO AND THAT IS SHARE AND SHARE AS WE WILL NOT KNOW THE TRUTH OF THIS CASE, TILL IT IS OVER.

Everything in life is a lesson.
What have you learned from this?
What is GOD trying to teach you?

Let me ask the cops who may be viewing this.
Has that MAN been in our city more than once in looking for someone to pickup?
What does he look like?
This may be important.

A person will not have all their critical thinking skills by age 15. Some, but not all. It is that "some" that helped this teen.

GOD USES PEOPLE FOR HIS OWN PURPOSE.
We all are HIS PEOPLE. AMEN.

Love goes out to her mother for telling the police. My mother did not get the police for me. Jessica has a good mother. Thank GOD they are together, again. AMEN

LPD take care. You are loved and don't feel like it, I guess. FORGIVE ME. I DON'T WANT TO ADD ANY DISCOMFORT TO YOUR LIFE. Please know that you are always in prayer. No one knows what's next and you dear souls are our protectors. Not everyone protects the ones they love. We do have you and I will eat crow and say, thank you from my heart.

If what I heard from some of the family is true then she was trolling the internet dating sites saying she was over twenty in her profiles. I was told this is how she hooked up with this illegal Hispanic guy. I was also told her story about being abducted isn't true and had left a note saying she was running away. I do know was charged in Marshall Co with being a run-away.
