Laura Lynn Thompson now missing 14 years, New Castle, Pennsylvania

One thing I have noticed about "runaways" is that they may be gone for a while, but they are usually found safe. However, when someone has been gone for this long, it seems very serious indeed. Also, teenagers can sometimes be presumed to be runaways when it is not necessarily the case. Or, someone might leave home voluntarily, but they can be put into danger. (Case in point: Tanya Kach.) So, please, take time to get to know Laura and study her picture before you write her off as just another runaway, and please call one of the numbers below if you think you may have seen her.
