    I think it is so absurd when people feel the need to jump to conclusions and make assumptions and comments about this young lady and or her family without knowing either! No one knows what transpired between her and her family or what her hormones were so STAY OUT OF IT and have some respect!!

  • maria lambert

    I hope she is found SAFE AND SOUND no matter what the reason for her disappearance! I cant imagine what her family and friends are going through right now! I wish them the best and will be praying!

  • Djones

    Do any of you know the family no!! They are worried sick they have posted all over facebook, they have contacted all of her friends they have searched everyday for her so don’t jump to conclusions. They need everyones help not negative bashing comments!

    She ran because even though her family loves and caress about her she doesnt like it there. Shes running from those problems and until those problems are solved shes gonna keep running. She knows shes in trouble now. Thats the only reason she wont come back. If there was a way for her to be told she wouldnt get in trouble by broadcast from her parents then it may just be a possibility she would come home.

        Mr. Gray, Sierra, & other friends and family, I will not say I even remotely begin to understand your pain & grief. The people who claim to “know” the problems or the answers, or claim to know how to resolve this or the reason for your daughters reluctance to come forward, they are not in your shoes. I have 3 daughters and a son, and I’ve have my difficulties. Recently divorced from a women, after 24 yes, that shared drugs with the kids. Even tried to convince them it was OK. The ones that temporarily went along with it, decided on their own to come live with me & my more strict rules and give up the “Freedoms” they had with her. I know that rules are tough for kids, but kids, and people without kids, do not realize how hard it is to be a parent, make the decisions that are unpopular with the kids, and still try to convince them its because you love them. I’m praying for strength for you and your family, as well as your daughters safety. People are either CLUELESS or KNOW SOMETHING. I send prayers you are sent the strength you need to help you in your struggles. May God be with you, your family, and your daughter, and may you all feel precious His love.

    THIS IS MY NIECE WE ARE WORRIED SICK ABOUT HER IF U DON’T KNOW US LEAVE YOUR NEGATIVE COMMENTS TO UR SELF. WE LOVE HER VERY MUCH I WISH I COULD BE THERE BUT I LIVE IN WEST VIRGINIA.

    Really? jump to conclusions and assumptions? Really? this young lady is not on a camping trip and i doubt shes sleeping under a bridge. whoever is harboring her risk the chance of being charged with kidnapping, coersion or worse. 15 is below the age of consent unless you have forgotten. she wasnt abducted, she walked out of school on her own but her actions could endanger whoever it is thats helping her. i had a teenage daughter thats grown now and its like trying to hold a hand full of sand, the tighter you squeeze, the more it slips through your fingers. i dont know this girl and i dont know her family but i have seen the same situation and i recognize it for what it is.

  • jeff massey

    I do feel for the parents and I sympathize as it must seem like a nightmare with all that can happen to a young female alone in the world today. If I could talk to this young lady, I would tell her that she is in no trouble and all will be forgiven if she would only go home. If she cares about her friends and family, she would not put them through this. young one, I swear that if you contact your parents, you will make someone that loves you happier than they have ever been since the day of your birth. I promise you that you are not in trouble but the people that love you are worried sick.

    Ik her parents they have always beem good to her anf. Talked to her after the 18th so really have respect u dont know her mom and dad

  • John Gray

    Ok apparently youve never had a run away daughter before there is things that the investigators ask you to do and as well not do . But as for freakingout oh yeah freaked you dont know the half of it. I wish that i could do more like take some folks and “twist” what they know out of them use your imagination

  • Sierra

    Cheyenne is my sister and all of you that think it’s because of her parents and all the problems at home .. well news flash , she skipped school just to do bad things that she is not allowed to do. Well the vice principal found out and so did our parents and she knew that they had found out so she didn’t want to come home and get in trouble so she didn’t come home at all. We have wonderful parents that treat us right so yeah.. and all of you with the negative comments get your facts straight before you run your mouth .. Also our whole family is worried sick .. I mean let your sister go missing and then let me know how you feel about negative comments.. If you really think that our family doesn’t care then go on facebook and check it out foreal. Okay, well hopefully you get the point and if you don’t let me know and I’ll try to get it across to you.

      Keeping you and your family in my prayers sweetie. I pray for your sisters safe return. Some people can be so cruel and post negative comments they have no idea about. Glad you set them straight. Most importantly your sister is missing and the reasons why or who or what happened is not important. We need to get this baby home safely. Good luck in your search and prayers she gets home safe. God Bless your family.

    • Jessica

      I know she’s safe at home now, and I’m very thankful for that. But, you don’t have to explain yourself to anyone!!! It’s no ones business about what really happened. Let the ignorant, judgemental people (and there are plenty of them) think what they want. All that’s important is that she is home safe now.

  • anette ware

    I LOVE YOU CHEYENNE ….. IF U SEE THIS PLEASE GO HOME BABYGIRL…. U ARE MY MIRACLE BABY TO SAY THE LEAST. I LOVE YOU… AND I PRAY THAT UR SAFE AND GET HOME SAFE. DADDY AND.JENN AND. ME ARE. GOING CRAZY. WE ALL ARE. EVEN JAX WANTS U HOME. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE CALL SOMEONE

  • Regina

    I don’t know the family, but I do want to say people need to back off them. My prayers are with them as they go through this trying time. May God keep your daughter safe and bring her home.

  • GHinAR

    Mr. Gray and Sierra, you all are handleing this the right way. With a calm head. No one knows what you are going through so don’t let the comments here of the ignorant get you down. My daughter was much in the same place as yours many years ago. I was afraid she would die before she straightened her life out. But, she did. I am sure you have parented her to the best of your ability and I am sure you offer a loving environment and family. Never second guess that. Be there for her and find her help if that is what she needs. She may not cooperate, be prepared for that. I’ll say a little prayer for all of you tonight.

  • Jeesy

    I don’t know the family or the reason this young lady left school but I pray she is found safe and sound. People need to realize how they would feel if it was their sister daughter cousin or niece that had disappeared and leave the negative comments to themselves. My prayers are with this family.

  • Brenda

    Dear Lord, please bless this child and help her to return home soon. Please be with all concerned and especially help all to understand. Amen

  • casey

    I hope she is found safe. Maybe that comment about her being scared to come home is true.. little girls need live and support so it may be best to reach out and let her and everyone know she will not be introuble.. All that matters is her safety any other problem can be solved…

  • KB

    I hope the family finds her soon and that she is not harmed. The waiting is the hardest part and I have been there! Can’t sleep, can’t eat. You can’t do anything but pray, cry and plead with God that she is ok. My prayers go out to you all.

  • Kim

    Cheyenne you need to go home. I ran away when I was 15 ( I am now 58) the world was much different then. Today anything can happen to you. If your parents didn’t love you they would not have the police involved. And believe getting punished at home is a whole lot better than was the crazy people will do to you these days.

  • Kim Minor Dutton

    has she been found yet? saw one of the pictures of aryana that we (fb) have been forwarding and one of the comments said she is home now. i pray that this is true for all involved.

  • Jen

    CHEYENNE CAME HOME AROUND 1:00 YESTERDAY!! A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT HAS PRAYED & HELP GET THE WORD OUT IN ORDER TO LOCATE HER!! WE APPRECIATED ALL THE PRAYERS & HELP MORE THAN YOU KNOW!! AS FOR ALL OF YOU CONCERNED WITH ONLY THE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS & COMMENTS, I WILL BE PRAYING FOR YOU!! GOD IS AWESOME!!

    • GHinAR

      Wow, Wow, Wow, such awesome news. Welcome home Cheyenne. You are one lucky girl to have a family who loves you so much. I know they feel very lucky to have you home, and safe.
