    why didn’t the cabbie question picking up 2 young people such as these at such an hour? hope the kids are found safe. parents keep a sharper eye on your children. the technology age has weakened our society. both families need alot of supports.

    I’m in NYC – what do we call if we find them here? Won’t do much good for us to call the Massachusetts police departments listed above really, right?
