The 16-year-old daughter of a San Diego County homeschooling family has been missing since May 19th. Helena appears to have left voluntarily with an unknown person or persons, possibly someone she met via the internet.
Her family is desperate to find Helena, a much beloved daughter and sister. They have set up a website to help spread the word. Because she is classified as a runaway, law enforcement agencies do not do the kind of widespread searching that would be the norm for a kidnapping case. Helena’s family, however, believes she was lured from home; she left behind her iPod, wallet, phone, jacket, and other personal items.
The family is organizing a Missing Child Team in the San Diego area. Please visit the Find Helena website for more information, and if you are too far away to help by distributing flyers, your prayers for Helena’s safe recovery will surely be appreciated.
