Stefanie Mills now missing 5 years, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Stefanie C. Mills does not seem to have gotten as much media coverage as some missing people do. Some might say it is because she is African American, but I think it is more likely that it is because she is listed as a "runaway". People tend to not pay as much attention to runaways--they're the largest category of missing children and teens, and people probably figure they're all right because they left home voluntarily. Indeed, most runaways do seem to make it home safe--sometimes within days, other times not for years. It may be important to know why they are running away, but one thing is certain: All runaways have family and/or friends who wonder where they are and what they are doing and when they can ever see them again.
Do you think you can help Stefanie C. Mills' loved ones? Do you recognize her?
