Angela Drake Missing

I don't know how widespread this news is, but some of you from Wisconsin might have heard about Angela Drake. She's a girl my age that has been missing since late Thursday night. She is from Oregon but went missing from a bar in Madison. She was last seen leaving with a man that she didn't know very well. Her car was left at a bar called the Dry Bean. No one has heard from her since then.

I knew her -- my friend Katie is one of her best friends. I have hung out with her on occasion. I just kind of wanted to share some things about this because it has me upset lately. I wasn't one of Angie's best friends, yet I knew her well enough to know that if she was okay, she would have contacted someone by now. She is a VERY social person, but she's not an "Audrey Seiler," a name some of you might recognize as the girl whose craving for attention drove her to fake her own abduction, and end up owing the Madison Police department a crapload of money. Anyway...

I just know that Angela is not okay. I know she won't be found alive, and I hate to say that. I have to get some confessions out, but it feels really weird. I can't help but thinking that I have always thought of Angie as someone who didn't monitor her alcohol well, and needed to be the center of attention. And I can't help but think that those undesireable qualities got her into this mess. I just hate to think that many people who are too wrapped up in themselves to realize that they could be doing serious damage to themselves...could wind up the same way. I hate thinking so negatively, and of COURSE I hope she is found alive. But the whole situation makes me really wish that people would use her as an example, and be more responsible when drinking. I also wish people would stop thinking that making people attracted to you is more important than dignity or safety.

I feel so sorry for Angie's mom and her sister, who she was very close to. I feel sorry for my friend Katie who has been a wreck all week. This is very close to home -- not only did I know Angela but I used to go to the Dry Bean every Thursday. I've met plenty of new people there. I have prayed about it and I will keep praying until I hear anything else. But I just had to get these feelings off my chest.

Here is an article if anyone wants to read: http://www.channel3000.com/news/5536668/detail.html

I was just thinking about alcohol drinking because I drop people off for their daily anti-buse pills.

You can chose alcohol to be your ally, but it's bound to make life more difficult. Kind of like choosing your friends, I guess.

I hope your aquaintance does turn up okay, that's got to be very hard for her family.

That is so scary and it's even scarier that this kind of thing happens all the time. I hope she returns home safe and sound

I've heard about that and I hope she's found.

I understand what you're saying about the alcohol...I know too many people that rely on it to have a good time and it really can make your life a lot worse.

Thats really heart-breaking, the one time when no news is not good news.

That's frightening. Both this mystery with the poor girl, and that there are those kinds of people out there.
