I saw this at Carla Rolfe's blog today and thought this is the necessary and right post for today.
I am a single dad with five kids (three boys, two girls - ages 18-12). My youngest had her 12th birthday yesterday; and so this story was ringing in my heart all day. I cannot begin to imagine the desperate pain I would feel if something like this happened to any of my kids.
Please read the complete story and visit frequently the family's web page. If you know anything, or know of anyone that might know anything, or saw anything, or even think you might of seen something - speak up.
From the family's website:
PLEASE, please let the police know any information you might have. The slightest detail may turn out to be critical to helping Kelsey return home. If you were at the Target store, or at Oak Park Mall any time late on Saturday 6/2/07 - and can think of *anything at all* that would help the investigation, please call the TIPS hotline with *any* information at 816-474-8477, or the Overland Park Police at 913-895-6300.

As a Christian blogger and minister of the gospel, it is imperative that we use these blogs to help others in this time of crucial family need. May I encourage you today that have blogs to copy this information and post it on your website and blog or even your churches website and blog as well.
Be praying beloved for Kelsey's safe return; and may we continue to pray for the safety and protection of all our children. We live in uncertain and violent times; remember to encourage others in the hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ today.
In His unfailing love,
