Ok im autistic I really hope for her safe return. Wish her the best. Oh crap "last seen northbound on Industrial, approaching Michigan Ave um I used to work over near there lets really hope for her safety" that doesn't sound good, I truly hope people have heart and do not take advantage of her. I have had that happen to me a lot in my life and I think its wrong.
