  1. Please everyone keep Karyn and her family in prayer. That's about the most effective weapon we have right now to guard her safe return. It's awful for all of the McConnells and Hancocks to have to deal with such a crisis during the holiday season. Toledo, let's rally behind this family and help them bring their daughter, wife and mother home.

  2. I will continue to pray for this sista's safe return to her family.

  3. She ran away voluntarily. Took her luggage with her to Six Flags Atlanta to have a good time.

  4. I am just glad she has returned. Why would a woman leave her child? I say there is more to the story. Look at the husband for answers.
