My parents called me earlier today to tell me that my best friend from elementary school through high school has been "missing" since Wednesday.

Some of you might remember me telling you about Tracy after Hurricane Katrina. We had lost touch with each other right before I got married and 10 years later - almost to the day - she saw the story in my hometown newspaper about my sister relocating back to Omaha and called my parents to get my number. We have been emailing and talking to each other like nothing ever came between us ever since.

I talked to her mom earlier this afternoon - as much as I could 'cause we were both bawling - and she said her husband has been beating her and she has been hiding it. There's all kinds of other stuff, but her dog was also found running loose in the neighborhood and she would NEVER allow that to happen. Her car, purse, keys, cell phone and wallet were all left at the house. She has disappeared.

I went home from work today and looked on my caller I.D. She called me Monday afternoon from her cell phone. I'm so pissed now that I don't have an answering machine. I'm so scared that something has happened to her. I just found her again. When we were in school you would never see one of us without the other one. Everything that happened to me Tracy was there with me.

Please pray for a safe return for her. I hope she is just in hiding from her husband. Please keep your fingers crossed. You all have such wonderful shoulders to lean on and I really need them right now.

OMG! This is so sad. I will keep my eye out. Is this the same Tracy that helped me get Kitana?

Yes, April! I'd forgotten about that - it's the same Tracy. Please watch for her or pray for her or whatever you can do.
