I agree some standard language should be posted "confirmed runaway" if there's a note or "suspected runaway" if unclear.
ALSO, in the event it's a child custody or abuse situation, perhaps a seal of endorsement from local police a report has been filed- what if the person reporting the missing is someone a protective order has been filed against & they're merely trying to suss out where the victim/complaintant is?

I get a weird feeling about the step dad. I don't know, I feel he should be blasting that his step daughter is missing all over his face book but he isn't, not accusing but I just get a funny feeling about it. I hope I'm wrong and I hope I don't come across as judgemental. Have they looked into it as foul play at all? Or are they still sticking with the runaway speculation? I swear these laws are all tWisted, it's almost as if they give priority to certain cases. I hope she is found safe and sound and that this family has peace. God is a good God and a loving God. She is in my prayers and I can't get this situation off my mind. Prayers are with the family and beautiful Deshon.

Brilliant, just cast aspersions on a man because of your "funny feeling". Perhaps he is trying other methods, as opposed to "blasting it on facebook" which would probably be a waste of time anyway.

he doesn't blast it because when he isn't working 10 hours a day he knocking on doors hanging fliers and being an awesome husband and dad the only thing step here is you stepping over boundries he never gets on face book if you haven't been in this situation then you have no clue and God forbid it ever happens to you people like you are sick and should offer prayers not sick oppinions

Damn for someone who is so GODLY like you sure are quick to get vindictive huh? Did you not even bother to read the rest of my post? I am not in any way trying to be judgemental, I just feel that as a husband maybe he should be more supportive, and no I would never want to be in that situation if I had kids, but I'm pretty sure my husband would be at my side doing ALL that is needed to be done and work would be the last thing in his mind! Seriously, there is a missing child here! And the focus should be on her, and why the hell would anyone make such a dumb remark as to Facebook being a waste of time? It is and has been a very effective tool at spreading an important message! Like I said God bless Deshon. There's certainly more to the story, but the story only God knows.

Go on FB and READ Mellisa Crawford's Posts. This goes back further into May 2013, so something is up. Also look up Deshon Crawford on FB n see her lookin' STONED, n that FB Profile is from 11/22/12. She looks ALOT older than these pix n something is up with her mother. Too many things son't make any sense!!!

Don't see on her Fb page where this goes back to May

You know how she looks on a social site picture, whether she has used marijuana or what you think her relationship with her mother is like is pretty irrelevant when a 16 year old girl is missing. Especially with sex-trafficking being what it is. Why don't you lay off suggesting something that you have no proof of and offer up concern, prayer and hope?
ceshons momma melissa September 9, 2013 at 7:47 PM
thank you and to add to it our relationship is great she will be 17 in a few weeks this is the first time I have never spoke to her for more then 24 hours and in may they found lumps in my brest and we moved into a new home deshon doesn't even take medication for her tourettes so people can assume and be evil and cruel if they want because the devil is a liar and people like that are pathetic

Tried to go to Tennessee news on this young lady and saw AN ALERT WAS ISSUED....but it was for a DIFFERENT GIRL 1 YEAR YOUNGER than Deshon missing since only FRIDAY - WHAT THE HECK????
**I also went to that Deshon Crawford on Fbook, I was battling whether that was her or not...I think it is.
deshons momma melissa September 9, 2013 at 7:25 PM
well seeing deshon didn't have a face book in November your rong and the picts she took were on a camera that is broken as far as may goes it was and had nothing to do with anything like this I am the mother and deshon is a great funloving child with tourettes syndrome shes a good student awesome daughter and amazing big sister im so sorry that people gotta twist things and be negative but let me tell you Gods got this and Hes a mighty God and I pray he has mercy on your sick demented twisted blame throwing life God be with you
Anonymous September 9, 2013 at 7:36 PM
I am sorry you are forced into defending yourself and your daughter at a time like this. Try to ignore the negatives and focus on Deshon! Good luck and prayers your way.
Anonymous September 9, 2013 at 7:37 PM
Don't get all bent out of shape. .just trying to get the FACTS ... You never said b/4 she has Tourettes. Did she leave a note saying she was running away, or could some one have taken her?
deshons momma melissa September 9, 2013 at 7:51 PM
she left a note saying she was going for a walk /run would be back in a little while and didn't come home the police classified her as a runaway not me
Jerrie Dean September 9, 2013 at 8:06 PM
Thank you for clarifying that. The media sometimes gets it wrong. Teens are the ones most ignored by the police BECAUSE they label them runaway, not the parents.

To: "Deshon's Momma Melissa" - The Person You're calling sick & demented - Is the one that was actually UPSET about an Alert issued in YOUR STATE for a Young Girl recently - but it wasn't for Deshon. I NEVER DID ANY BLAME THROWING? I've POSTED on my Fbook a Notice so everyone can look for Your Baby and it's been shared (as many others are doing as well). *In the meantime..If You're reading this - Please TRY and get some SLEEP, don't put Yourself Out Like this Girl. You can continue searching in the Morning if she's not home by then. Blessings - Praying.
Anonymous September 9, 2013 at 9:49 PM
And just to clarify - I didn't mean "Don't put Yourself Out Like this Girl" for you to think I'm talkin 'bout Your Baby. I'm Saying - "Don't put Yourself Out THERE Like this - GIRL" Hope You understand that, and more importantly get your baby back tonight..Blessings

So you told the police she left a note, but also that she climbed out of a bathroom Window. So im confused. If she went out the window it wasn't for a run.
