Ok, please calm me down. I am freaking out. I hope I can explain this accurately. Saturday night I went out with my sister and a couple of friends. About 10:30 my sister noticed she had a missed call from an 800 number. She assumed it was a bill collector, she did think it odd for them to call that time of night on a Saturday. But we went on with our night. The next morning she noticed she had a voice mail. Here's where I panic!!! The call was from an IT Relay company. A company that the hearing impaired use. This call was from an automated service. The voice mail is as follows: - Hello, this is Shelly - I am looking for M**** C***** (my sister's FULL name) - I am calling in regards to your niece Brandie (notice she used my daughter's real name, not her alias) -Please call me at this number ********(the number is not in service, we tried to call) After we received this message of course we got very scared. We noticed that who ever this person is knows my sister's full name, cell phone number and used my daughter's real name. So my sister called my daughter (as you all know she knows my daughter's cell number) She spoke to my daughter as did I, she said that she doesn't know anyone named Shelly or anyone who is deaf. We prodded her for a while but she swore she knew nothing about this phone call. Ok, so we go on about our day a bit perplexed but not to scared as my daughter sounded fine. But my sister did call the Relay company and tried to get some information. It turns out that you do not have to prove to be deaf to utilize this service, you can download it on to your home phone, cell phone or computer. They could not give us any information. A few hours later we get phone call #2, as follows: (this time it was not an automated service it was a live operator translating) -Hello, this is Shelly My sister: Hello -Please know Brandie is not well My sister: How do you know Brandie? - I met her in a bar last week My sister: What do you mean she is not well? -Please call her at ******* My sister: Whose number is ******* - A friend, she was hurt last night and was asking for her Auntie My sister: How was she hurt? - She is in Jacobe Hospital, it is imperative My sister: Whose number is ***** and how was she hurt? - I have to go, please go see her End of call. Okay, so we noticed that she referred to my sister as Auntie. My daughter calls my sister Auntie. She used words in both phone calls that require some education or knowledge. Like, "in regards to" and "imperative". I don't know what to make of this. I believe who ever this is had good intentions and really wanted to help my daughter. So, we called the hospital and gave my daughter's name and her aliases but there is no record of her being there. We called the phone number of the "friend" and it was a man, well spoken, he didn't know anything. We are thinking he might know something, he might be a danger to my daughter, he might be her pimp, drug dealer, who knows, there are many possiblities!!!! We researched the phone number and actually paid for a service to get information on the computer. It is a Sprint cell number, the bill goes to a Manhattan address. We of course wrote everything down. After the second phone call my sister called Brandie again. She swore nothing happened to her and that she was fine. My sister begged her to meet her and promised she would come alone. Brandie refused. My sister kept her on the phone as long as she could, questioning her and trying to read the sound of her voice and hear what ever she could in the backround. Brandie swore she was safe and no one hurt her. I don't believe that for a second!!!! She told my sister that she was in Queens. We also researched the phone number that "Shelly" gave on the voice mail during the first call. The number she wanted my sister to call her back on. It is disconnected but at one point was a Queens number!!!! I called my SW and spoke to her for a while. She calmed me down but told me to call the police. I did. They said there really isn't much they can do. The detective on her case won't be in until Tuesday!!!! I asked him if they could investigate the information I have and subpeona(SP?) records from this Relay company. He said that was a possibility but he doubts they would go that far because she is 18 and the crime she is charged with is only a property crime. I cried and begged for a while all to no avail. He wouldn't even send an officer to my house. So I then called the detective and left him a voice mail in the hopes he checks his messages today and calls me back. If not, I have to wait until tomorrow to speak with him. We wrote everything down. I am freaking out. I am a nervous wreck!!! I am shaking, pacing the floors, my knees are weak, I feel as though I am going to vomit any minute, I am scared to death. Something happened to my baby and at that very moment she wanted her Auntie and then the next day she probably felt better and changed her mind about reaching out. But I believe there just has to be some truth to this as this girl knew too much. My daughter does not give her real name to ANYONE and how on earth would this person know my sister's full name and cell number and also know that Brandie calls her Auntie????!!!!! I don't even think she is really deaf. I don't think Brandie was aware that she would be calling. I think this person has a moral compass and felt that my poor girl needed help. She utilized the service so she didn't actually have to speak to us and it would be easier to just give the information that she was willing to give and then hang up. I am assuming someone dangerous hurt my daughter and this person is afraid to get involved but felt that human nudge to do something!!!! Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God!!!! Please let her be okay!!!! I am so scared. And I am so mad at myself for not being here when that first call came in. She needed us and we weren't there!!!! I did not sleep neither did my sister, we just went nuts trying piece all of this together and come up with something, anything that would ease our minds. We just don't know what to think!!! My poor baby!!! I just want her to get caught already, at least if she is in Jail I know she is relatively safe!!! I am just beside myself with worry. My son is home sick today from school and I just can't focus on anything but my daughter. I can't sit still and I can't stop crying. I just can't take anymore. I can't do this. This just hurts too much!!! What do I do now?? How do I live, not knowing what is happening to my baby out there in the mean streets of the city??????? This is pure torture!!! And I am so angry at her for doing this. Doesn't she care what she is putting her family through?? I haven't even told my mother, she can't handle this. Her husband is in the hospital with lung disease and not doing well. This will kill my mother. She'll be next to end up in the hospital. My sister just called. She called my daughter. Brandie is sleeping. My sister asked her if she was okay. Brandie said "yes Auntie, I am sleeping, I'll call you back later". My sister said "promise me that if you need me you'll call me". Brandie said "yes Auntie, I promise". Okay, so I feel a tiny bit better, knowing she is alive at this moment. But something happened to her. She is not safe. She is in some sort of danger. What if she is with people that are controlling her and she is afraid to tell my sister anything. Oh my God, she is going to end up DEAD!!!!! How do you prepare for that?? Help!!!!!
