On April 27th, 2018, 13 year old Kyleigh Frost entered a vehicle with two adult males near her home around 10:00pm, in Springfield, Ohio.
Kyleigh is a girl that I had known since I was 16 or 17 years of age. I was coworkers with her mother and grandmother, her family was filled with wonderful people, including some that have served our country. I would describe Kyleigh as a very respectful young lady with a cheerful, quirky personality. She was goofy, I never saw her without a smile, she was always laughing, and she was a personality that people flocked to, she was a great kid.
Kyleigh’s family loves her, and they have been trying everything to bring Kyleigh home, with myself included. Since her disappearance, she has been spotted in Yellow Springs, Ohio, and possibly Hamilton, Ohio. I have been contacting her mother on a daily basis since the event, providing her with any information I could find, messaging pages and local groups to spread the word about her disappearance.
The hardest obstacle that we have had to face yet, is the police will not issue an AMBER Alert, because Kyleigh willingly left with the two males. The way that her mother worded this was, “the police don’t think she’s in danger”.
Although there is a lot that we don’t know about Kyleigh’s situation, the fact of the matter is, that we all believe that Kyleigh deserves as much consideration and effort as someone who has been kidnapped when it comes to AMBER Alerts. I am choosing to be the first of us to stand up and say that any minor that has not been emancipated from their parents in the court of law should have the same sense of urgency regarding their safety and well-being, as someone who was taken against their will.
Doesn’t it make sense to automatically assume the worst about a child’s condition to aid in their recovery, than to be nonchalant and end up being wrong about the child’s condition, and find out that they have suffered at the hands of their captors, and potentially to the extent where they need professional assistance to be able to carry on with their lives?
Isn’t it better to be safe than sorry? I would rather take all the necessary measures, and end up being wrong, rather than have all the faith in the world, and end up being wrong.
The harsh reality that nobody wanted to mention is that we could’ve been too late. We could’ve been too late, because millions of phones didn’t receive a notification regarding a missing 13 year old girl from Springfield, Ohio, hours after she was believed to be missing.
This is every parent’s worst fear. The least that we can do, is make situations like Kyleigh’s, easier on the family in a situation that is already a nightmare.
Before ending this, I have a very important announcement. Kyleigh Frost was found alive on May 1st, and Alex Brown was placed under arrest. Thank you for reading this petition and taking the time to hear myself and Kyleigh’s family out.
