Letter America Dear Doctor Guy, My friend recently stopped taking my calls because I’m dating her ex-boyfriend, but they broke up like over two years ago. I don’t know what to do.—Helpless Hottie ... More
I looked into my rearview mirror and saw my ten year-old daughter sitting in the backseat. She had known Jodi her entire life. Jodi and her sister had babysat for her until we moved to New Mexico. They were the older girls that she looked up to. How would I tell her?
I asked my father to clarify. He responded, “They have someone they are talking to.”
I still thought it must be a misunderstanding, but got off the phone and told my daughter that Jodi was missing. With concern in her eyes she nodded her understanding. During the twenty minute drive home I shook my head in disbelief that something like this could happen in the small town of approximately 12,000 people that I grew up in. This was a typical small town where people may or may not lock their doors. Jodi had never met someone who wasn't a friend. Who could possibly want to harm her?
