As a sister and daughter, her disappearance has left us devastated. We desperately need to find her. Not only for her sake, but to educate and warn other families and young women so this doesn’t happen again. Her journey is surreal and heartbreaking. It involves the details and documentation behind a very unusual live-in internship, what we believe to be questionable oversight by the University she attended, a tuition refund being offered under the condition we not talk about it, coercion, mental abuse, signs of other abuses and cult-like activities. In sharing these details and telling her story, we hope to find her. But we also want this story to educate and caution other parents, students and young women to keep them from falling prey to the same potential danger.”
