Original story: Prince William County police are asking for the public's help locating a 16-year-old girl who left the Youth for Tomorrow facility in Bristow early Saturday morning.

The other juvenile also remains missing but is not considered endangered at this time, Perok said.

It's time to stop looking at the children and time to start questioning "Why are these kids running away and what are they running away from?" These places were designed to help our youth. However my boyfriend spent 6yrs of his life in one (I won't name the place), the entire time he was beaten, molested and treated very harshly ....all because society gave up on his troubled self!!!

An investigation needs to happen but it needs to happen in the right area for the madness to stop!

These children have their voices taken away from the moment the get sent there, someone needs to be their voice and do what's right!!!


They need to close this place down. Someone almost always goes missing or endangered from there. Tomorrow's criminals featured today.


Isn't this at least the fourth teen to run away from this facility? Why does this keep happening? Perhaps Youth for Tomorrow needs to ramp up supervision so that these kids can actually be safe. Hoping she's found safe!
