Was Charice Beaumont kidnapped

Was Charice Beaumont kidnapped, Provo teen Sarah Charice Beaumont vanished on Monday morning, and over the past several hours her case has rocketed through media headlines. As of 11:00 p.m., April 15, 2013, she still hasn't been located -- and the fears for her well being are clear and present. Was this straight A student kidnapped or did she break unexpectedly from her routine and disappear voluntarily? Deseret News shares that several neighborhoods have already been canvassed to no success, which is just another let down in the several hours that she has been missing.

Charice Beaumont was last seen at 8:30 a.m., by her parents before they left for work and she left on foot for school. However, she never made it and her family was not able to report her missing until 3:30 in the afternoon. That's an eight hour gap where anything could have happened to the petite teen -- who is not even 70 lbs. This post points out the similarities between this disappearance and another extremely high profile case from last year.

Like Charice, Sierra LaMar was last seen by her family before embarking on foot to her school bus stop, but she never made it. After a couple of months Antolin Garcia Torres was arrested and charged with kidnapping and murdering the Morgan Hill teen, but her remains have never been found. The disappearance of Sarah Beaumont, aka Sarah Charice Beaumont, is strikingly similar in that her parents were also unaware of her disappearance until the late afternoon. As long as an eight hour day passed before any action was taken -- and this is more than enough time for something horrific to happen to a person who has been kidnapped.

  1. I saw reports a few minutes ago, on the Find Charice Facebook, that she has been found. There were no details. They said it was confirmed wit the school secretary. She was found in Pleasant Grove.
