Melissa Graves, the fifteen year old Borger girl who went missing last Monday night has returned home to her family.
Graves, who left her home in the middle of the night a week ago, was spotted at a home owned by relatives of her alleged boyfriend, according to Debbie Goforth, the girlâ€™s mother. After police were contacted, says the mom, Graves panicked and left through a back exit, making her way back home around 1:30 p.m. on Sunday afternoon.
A mother of two from Connecticut has contacted the Borger News-Herald with a plea for her husband, Michael, who left home two weeks ago and has not returned.
â€śTwo weeks ago today my husband and my childrenâ€™s daddy got up to go to work, kissed and hugged me goodbye told me he loved me. He walked out the door and never came back...â€ť said Susan Cox of Kensington, CT, in a letter to the News-Herald.
