Please Call

 

Someone I’m friendly with has gone missing.
Their family have involved the police and social media is clamouring for news.
Things are worrying
As a Samaritan I have listened to many people who have ‘vanished’ from home for a variety of reasons 
A non judgemental, ear and a voice in the dark is what the volunteers can provide.
If you read this, Samaritans can be reached on freephone  116 123

    I hope your friend is soon found John. It's so sad that there are desperate people who get to the end of their tether and feel they have nothing left. Desperation is a totally overwhelming all encompassing emotion. Your compassion and kindness as always shines out from the page and I hope your friend contacts you today.
    Peace and love to you.

  26. I sincerely hope there is a good ending to this and the missing person shows up, or contacts someone. Sometimes desperate times aren't quite so bad with the passing of time. Thinking of you, and your friend. -Jenn

  27. I do hope she sees this or the Facebook posts and realises there are a lot of people that care. A phone call to her nearest and dearest would set minds at rest and at the best least leave her to wander or move on with her plans in peace.

    1. What good news! This triggered me a bit. When I was 17 a kid I dated a bit went missing. We looked for him for two days and nights, until he was found dead on his grandparents’ farm. He left a note telling everyone (naming 33 people in all) that they weren’t to blame. It seems he had mental issues that he hid from everyone, and he finally succumbed. I felt guilty for years for not seeing his problems.
