Last June, 15 year old Alisa Wheeler ran away from home. I actually remember this story because someone was blathering on about how if she went to Mexico she would be sold into a sex slavery ring. Really? I got the feeling that the man who was interviewed for it was someone who wanted that for his own life rather than the reality. The teen had allegedly run away with her much older boyfriend who is Mexican. Well, after four months no one had heard from Alisa until this week. Her mother received a message from Alisa on Facebook. Huh. I wonder if anyone tried that before. Alissa said she is down in Mexico, but when she came down with her boyfriend she found out he was married so she left him and found another guy in his 20's and now she is married to him and three months pregnant. That is a crazy four months. She has since spoken to her mother again, but does not want to come home because she thinks her husband might be arrested. In Mexico, she is legally married at 15 so I guess when you are 15 there you do not need your parent's permission to get married that young?

The good news in all this is she is alive and her mom must be really thankful just for that.
