Missing Teen Sends Letter to Mom 5 Years Later, Revealing She’s Still Alive.

Prayers were answered for the Florida family of a teen who had been missing throughout the previous five years when she was discovered safe and sound. 

Emily Paul was 14 years old when she went missing from her home in Tallahassee. A letter addressed to Emily’s mother came three weeks ago. Paul’s cousin Melissa Parker expressed that Emily basically stated in the letter that she is ok, she is 19, she is secure, happy and she is where she wants to be. 

For five years, the family heard nothing from Paul but “never gave up hope,” Parker said, adding that anytime they saw a young girl who looked like her on the street, they wondered whether it was Paul. Parker remarked that she’s alive, which is the best that could have occurred. 

After receiving the letter, Bay County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Jason Daffin requested Paul to come forward so they could ensure the note was genuine and not composed under pressure or influence. He adds in the video that if Emily does this he can end this case with peace of mind knowing that she is fine. 

To everyone’s amazement, Paul, now 19, strolled into a local police station where Daffin does not work and requested to talk with a detective. 

Daffin explained that her comments to him were she’s blissful, she’s fine where she’s at and that she had a decent support system. In a devastating twist, Paul stated that she does not want her family to know her whereabouts. 

“It’s insane, yet she’s a grown-up now and she will settle on that choice,” Parker said. “I have no clue about what it could take to get her home.” 

Parker hopes that one day they will be brought together. “I’m just hopeful that one day she’ll want to return into our lives and be a part of it again,” Parker added. 

Paul’s family claims they are not upset with her and that she is free to visit whenever she wants.
