Where is Ebony Peters? The 14-year-old Oregon girl vanished last weekend, and her loved one are concerned for her welfare. Her mother is especially worried since the girl not only has the mental capacity of a five-year-old child, but she may be in the company of “two older men.” This is undoubtedly a frightful experience for any mother to go through.
With each day that passes, the concerns for her welfare grows–and that’s to be expected. That’s because the first couple of days are the most important in any disappearance. Statistically speaking, with each day that passes that a missing person isn’t found, the chances of finding them safely diminish. If Ebony Peters, operating under the mental faculties of a child, is in the custody of two males, then what could they be doing with her? Are these two males her friends? Is one of them a boyfriend of hers? Or are these two males predators? There simply aren’t enough answers to the numerous questions in this case.
Ebony could be in the Portland Metro area with these two men, but it’s just not clear where she is or whether or not this story will have a positive ending. Hopefully everything does end up well for Ebony’s family and this young girl is returned home.
