Witnesses did nothing to save missing girl with autism!!!

A 9 yo autistic girl went missing, there were witnesses, and they did NOTHING… — Single Mom on a Budget

At around 3:30pm on Monday night a 9 year old autistic girl, Kristina, went missing from her home in Arvada. I saw news reports, I saw the tweets coming from the local news stations (here is the news story)…

Tuesday morning at around 8:30am I was taking Jonesie to school and had Joe with me too. The DJ’s on Alice 105.9 were talking about the girl and the fact that she was still missing.

And then…

And then a woman called. And she said something along the lines of “I saw this girl last night at around 4:30ish at 58thand Kipling.” (Let me tell you, this is a very busy intersection.) BJ (radio DJ) asked her if she was wearing a red Mickey Mouse t-shirt, as the missing girl was reportedly wearing, and the woman said she was. She went on to say how the girl looked lost, and she was kind of in the street. AND THEN she said she honked her horn. You know… to get the girl out of the street so she didn’t get hit.
