Saturday, members of the Maryland State police and volunteers searched for a missing teenager in the state park near my parents' house. A part of the park I've walked my times in the past 38 years.
They found the body of one missing person, but not the teen.
Her mom remains hopeful.
The now 17-year-old disappeared from her half-sister's Northwest Baltimore apartment on Dec. 28 while visiting from Monroe, N.C. Reached by telephone, her mother Janice Sallis called the results of the search "good news. It's good news that they didn't come up with anything. My baby might still be out there."
