This is exactly the reason, when you have an emergency concerning a lost child, or, relative.. the authorities wait 24-48 hours to determine whether your missing person is actually a missing person... the frivilous antics of crazy people acting out their own "movie"- what a waste of taxpayers money.. perhaps they could total up the hours versus people working to find her, and charge her a "frivilous fine" for "disappearing on her own violition"
