Claim: A 13-year-old girl named Charlotte Iglesias is missing from her Fitzgerald, Georgia, home.
Example: [Collected via Facebook, August 2015]
I have been asked to repost the pictures of my missing granddaughter, Charlotte Iglesias, age 13. She was on a family trip with her mom and they arrived in Fitzgerald Georgia on Sunday afternoon. Monday morning when they woke up, Charlotte was gone with her luggage. She was seen walking along the street by a convenience store clerk. There is an all points BOLO out throughout the state of Georgia and the Georgia Bureau of investigation and the FBI have been notified. All of her friends have been contacted to see if they know anything. They say they do not. Charlotte does not have a phone, tablet, or computer with her. For the 90 people who have already shared this post, thank you! For those of you that have not yet had the opportunity to do so, would you please share this so that more people will see it? For all of those that have been praying, please continue to do so. Please message me over Facebook if you have any information. Thank you. If you see Charlotte Iglesias, please remind her that she is loved and we want her to come home. Thank you for your help!

Glory Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! My granddaughter, Charlotte Iglesias, is safe! She is back in the arms of our family! Oh, the relief! The family is back together!
