THIRD MISSING TEENAGER INCIDENT REPORTED IN LAWRENCE CO.
ALL 3 CASES INVOLVING TEENS RUNNING AWAY AFTER COMMUNICATING WITH ADULTS 2 TO 3 TIMES THEIR AGE; LATEST MISSING CASE REVEALS HIGH NUMBER OF LAWRENCE TEENAGERS, ESPECIALLY TEEN GIRLS, HAVING “ONLINE RELATIONS” WITH LURID ADULTS
SEPTEMBER 26, 2017 – WRITTEN BY WADE QUEEN
In the wake of the continuing investigations into recent separate cases of two Lawrence County 15 year old kids disappearing earlier this month, with recent information implying possibly both teens are in the consensual company of much older adults (READ ABOUT BOTH MISSING TEENS HERE, HERE, HERE, & HERE); unbeknownst to nearly the entire Lawrence County community, there is now a third case of a reported missing Lawrence County teenager.
While the teen was found in 12 hours and returned home, afterwards the case unfolded in a bizarre manner and finally ended and came to law enforcement’s attention after a third party intervention. This latest incident was told directly to me (author of the article) by a relative of the teen involved last week ( who was also the person who intervened ).
The Lazer will not divulge the identities of the teenage girl or family members involved in the case, as the investigation continues, with as yet no criminal charges, in Kentucky.
On the the morning of Saturday, September 16, a 16 year old Lawrence County girl was discovered missing by her aunt, who is the girl’s custodial guardian. After contacting various family members, and also her niece’s friends via phone, email and social media, they searched the missing teen’s computer and made a shocking discovery.
The 16 year-old girl has been for a lengthy period, contacting a 40 year-old predator via email and social media in Charleston, West Virginia.
The continuous contacts between the two had ‘blossomed’ into an ‘intimate online relationship’ that finally reached the critical stage when it reached into real-world actions when the girl had agreed to be picked up in the Louisa area by the 40 year old man.
The missing girl’s aunt was able to discover the man’s phone number in Charleston in their online conversations and
immediately called the man at a residence. Once they were able to speak to the Charleston man, they demanded to know if he had their niece, was she okay, and demanded she be returned to their home immediately.
They were told that while the niece was at his residence and that she was okay, he (the 40 year old) had not picked up the 16 year old, but that she was instead picked up by the 40 year old man’s father! ( The reason for that will revealed later in this article)
The family then told the Charleston man that they were setting an immediate deadline time and that if their niece was not returned safely home by that time, they would contact law enforcement. The man said he would return her home by the deadline if the family promised not to call law enforcement.
The family then demanded to speak to their niece on the phone, and once they were able to, the 16 year old told her aunt that she would NOT return home unless her aunt promised not to contact any police. The aunt stated she would consider it if she immediately came home, by the set deadline.
After being gone for a little over 12 hours on that Saturday, the girl was returned to her aunt’s home in Lawrence County at around 11 P.M., just shortly before the aunt’s deadline. Once at home the 16 year old had a very heated confrontation with aunt and other family members, with the teenager manically pleading that her aunt and other family members not pursue criminal charges against the man and his father in Charleston, claiming that she was in love with the 40 year old.
When asked why she went to Charleston when she knew that she was going to be picked up not by the 40 year old, but would be instead transported by the man’s father, not even knowing if that were the truth of his identity, thus putting belief and faith of not one but two individuals she essentially did not know, basically strangers for even though all the teenager allegedly knew of the alleged situation.
After hours of heated arguments between the 16 year old and her aunt and other relatives, and with the niece implying she would run away if her aunt or other relatives contacted the police, they all relented and the aunt agreed not to press any criminal charges against the Charleston man and his father. It seemed the incident would be over, at least for the immediate period.
However, things took a different turn when the next day, a different relative of the teenage girl ( another aunt ) found out from the girl’s caretaker guardians about her niece’s disappearing act to Charleston involving the 40 year old and his father, and then got incredulously stunned when was told that the 16 year old family were not going to file any criminal charges, this second aunt went ballistic on her kinfolk for not immediately calling local police agencies, due to the severity of the case that the girl’s family apparently intending to sweep it under the rug.
Contacting the police
Soon thereafter the second aunt went home and began contacting the sheriff’s department, city police and Kentucky State police. Those agencies began an investigation in which they also contacted police agencies in Charleston and Kanawha County. It was then that those agencies discovered the complete scope and the seriousness of the entire plight of who the teenage girl had come in contact with.
The 40 year old man who the girl met on the internet and finally traveled with the man’s father to Charleston was a registered sex offender. He had been a past conviction of having raped his 12 year old cousin, He was recently on probation and was in home confinement and was not allowed to travel ( thus the reason why the man sent his father to pick the young girl up near her home).
But it gets worse. The 40 year old sex offender was not supposed to have any contact with any minors, especially on the internet. When police reviewed his computer they discovered he had been in contact with a large number of underage girls throughout the region, including several more teenage girls from Lawrence County, one of whom was the best friend of the 16 year old who went to Charleston.
On Tuesday September 19, the 40 year old sex offender was arrested by law enforcement in Charleston. His idenity has not been released publicly as the investigation is still continuing there, with the potential of federal charges being filed due to the Lawrence County teenager being taken across state lines.
However, no charges have been filed as yet in Lawrence County, because the teenager and the family members who have custody of her have not fully cooperated and Have not been forthcoming with local law enforcement, with the aunt who reported her abduction telling me that her niece has been ‘belligerent and unstable’ with her and the rest of her family since the police became involved with the matter.
This latest teenager disappearance incident, added with her friend and possible other teenage girls being involved, as well as the earlier runaway disappearance of the 15 year old girl and 15 year old boy from the Point Section of Louisa, who as of now allegedly traveling in the company of adults, has revealed that it is likely that an unknown but apparently high percentage of Lawrence County teenagers, especially local teenage girls, could be involved online via social media and on the internet with adults who are seducing them for the opportunity to have them undertake the same actions as the 16 year old Lawrence County girl who got taken to across the river up to Charleston.
However, they would be more than likely not to get as lucky as the 16 year old girl did for taking such a dangerous chance. Instead, they could find themselves in a terrifying scenario they could have never dream of, as if from the plot lines straight out TV crime dramas such as Criminal Minds or Law and Order: SVU.
Police strongly advise parents of Lawrence County who have teenaged children who have internet access, keep 110% knowledge of what and who they are communicating with emails, and on social media and other outlets on the internet.
Because if and when we have a fourth disappearance of a teenager from here in Lawrence County doing who ends up doing the same stunt to unleash the carnal desires with a mystery individual or adult they met online; that potential next time, they will likely not be as lucky to get an easier happy ending. Sadly, it is more than likely to come to a tragic ending.
The Levisa Lazer will keep monitoring for the status updates for the two missing 15 year old Lawrence County teens, as well as any more additional information as to the case of the 16 year old Lawrence County girl taken to Charleston, W.Va.
