Origins:   This e-missive from a grandmother concerned about her missing granddaughter was lacking some basic information (such as the girl's last name), but it did correspond to a genuine missing-child case.

Ashlyn Sarkies, a 16-year-old girl from New Iberia, Louisiana, went missing on 8 November 2004. Ashlyn's grandmother, Patti Gagnard, had custody of her, but earlier in the year Ashlyn was sent to live at the Evangeline Christian Home in St. Martinville, Louisiana. Ashlyn disappeared (and presumably ran away) from that facility around 5:30 P.M on 8 November, evidently by climbing out a window.

Ashlyn was found on Wednesday night, 10 November 2004, and returned to her home.
