My Girlfriend left here (Texas) on the 14th to visit her home town (Tennessee) with her sister for personal reasons. Anyway turns out she never showed up and just found out they found her car 30 miles out of town with the back of the car wrecked and all the windows busted out. Shes not been reported at the hospital and there are no signs of them anywhere.

I have no idea what to do.

Hope they find her man, shit's scary.

30 miles out of the city she was going to visit in Tennessee. Her friend from there said she found her car when they went looking since she never showed up.

Yeah the cops have been called, I won't know more till later.

Edit: The city was Ashland.

Well, I'd start by not wasting time asking the peanut gallery what their views on the situation. If it were my Missus, I'd be out there searching like nobody's business, despite that being the effort of extreme futility.

Is this even real? I hope it is, but I hope it's not if you know what I mean.

Call her? Call her sister? Search the area? Call their friends? Bring a recent picture of her, start from the car and work your way around to gas stations to ask if they've seen her?

If you care for her, get out there.

Yeah I am concerned since the back of the car was beat up and all the windows busted out. I have no idea of if the car was working, I hope not otherwise I fear there are more problems than just a wreck. Maybe I've just seen too many movies though.

Christ, I can't imagine how you must feel. The situation you described is more or less my worst nightmare.

I assume you've more or less been calling her phone nonstop? Is it off or ringing?

I hope it turns out ok.

Then I will join with the others in wishing for the best. The lack of phone call is disturbing, but at the worst case scenario, I hope it's just a case of the car getting nicked and your Missus and her sister in the middle of nowhere, but safe and sound.

...running around in another state with a flashlight isn't going to help when she has disappeared 3+ days ago. Nice stealth edit btw

I just got pissed imagining your girlfriend tied up in someones basement while you're on GAF. Seriously, I don't know your financial or social situation, but if it was my girlfriend I'd tell work what was up, get out there, get a hotel room near where she went missing and start asking questions right away.

Same here. Don't watch the french version. It's an even worst ending(worst as in more horrible, not as in crap-tastically bad or anything).

I'm broke, and when I mean broke I mean broke. Though I can probably come up with some money for this. If nothing shows up by the morning I'm gonna see what I can do. I'm feeling pretty out of control of the situation right now with the distance away.

She lost her parents at age 16 and came here to Texas to live with her Sister. They had to go back and deal with the parents belongings like the house and restaurant.

The things to do:
— Call her
— Call her friends and family
— Contact police
Police should help you from there.

I'm sure you're at this point right now.

If you want to go beyond what the police does, these are additional options:
— Search hospitals in the area
— Put posters up in towns near the incident
— Put up a website about the incident with contact information
— Contact relevant news networks to get coverage

Good luck!

Keep as calm as you can and make calls like mad. Call in favours from friends, do what you have to do. As stated above, the fact that two people are involved kind of lessens the chills, so at least keep that in mind.

Hope it all works out, brother.
