Have You Seen Morgan?



liminalia's 16-year-old daughter ran away. Her mother says: "Friends say she hopped a Megabus to the Carbondale, IL area to attend the upcoming Rainbow Gathering Oct. 1. She may change her destination if she knows she is being looked for. She's supposedly traveling with 2 guys named Tim and Josh, both Caucasian, early 20s or late teens, one with a "cholo tear" tattoo near his eye. She's 5'5", 120#, reddish-blonde hair, long bangs and sidelocks, short in back, always wears her jean vest with studs and patches on it. She may be begging for spare change. If you see her, *please* contact me and the police! 16 is too young to be running around the country on her own. I'm very worried for her safety. Thanks in advance."

ETA: "The bus she was on does not actually stop in Carbondale. She may have gotten off in St. Louis or Columbia, MO, so any extra eyes in those areas would be welcome. She may go somewhere else entirely now that she knows we are looking for her at the Rainbow Gathering. I have heard that some of her gutterpunk friends are wintering in Texas. She could, frankly, be headed for any city anywhere in the US at this point."

ETA 9/9: "Mo was spotted by a couple different people in Murphysboro IL tonight headed for the gathering near Harrisburg!! Please keep looking near there! She is with 2 guys, Tim and Josh. Tim has a tear tattoo and a white supremacist gang tat on his arm. They are probably hitching. Mo is using the alias Valia O'Donnell.

CALL POLICE. Then call me 630-508-0112!"

ETA 9/9 11:30AM: "Safe, in Carbondale, wants to come home. On my way now. Thank you internets, you were a major help!! Love u all!"

Two Ways to Help People!
* sihaya09's beloved kitty is sick, and she needs money for exorbitant vet bills. No, there's no PayPal button - she wants to sell things before she turns to asking for donations. Her Etsy shop is Sihaya Designs, and her stuff is completely gorgeous and makes great gifts for yourself and all the women in your life. It's not too early to shop for $WINTERHOLIDAY! She also does equally stunning custom work!

* hammercock and taura_g are doing the Komen 3-Day walk; taura_g has made her minimum fundraising goal, but hammercock hasn't yet. She needs less than $500 to be able to do the walk. What are you waiting for? Sponsor her!

Knitting Argh
I need to buy DPNs for hats and wristwarmers.

Pretty much everything in my queue needs a different size.

AUGH.

Another crazybusy workday, and this one's overlong, too. Might be time for a nap when I get home? I didn't sleep well again last night. feste_sylvain and I are hanging out at taura_g's tonight.
