Dear friend,

I have a 17 year old daughter named Jackie Yardhard. We are from Southern Minnesota. She has been missing since 4pm Oct.11, 1999. The Police were notified shortly after. I hope I have covered enough East Coast, Midwest, and West Coast people to spread out the search for this little girl.

It only takes 2 seconds to "forward" this on, if it was your child, you would want all the help you could get. Please. I am asking you all, begging you to please forward this e-mail on to anyone and everyone.

If anyone anywhere knows anything, sees anything, pleeeeaaaase contact me if you have my number. The Police don't recommend I put my number online, but you can contact the Police, a missing persons report has been filed.

All prayers are appreciated!!

Thank you,


After a few weeks search??
Dear Amy:

We are delighted to report that we have located your daughter - in Africa of all places! It is unknown how she got here, and she is unable to tell us because she is presently suffering from lockjaw, the cause of which we have been unable to ascertain. We are under the impression, however, that she does not want to leave.

We have tried for several days to bring her back home, but she is insistent on staying here. We have enclosed a photograph to reassure you that she is okay, and so that you do not worry about her because she is perfectly safe in the village of Mmmbadingo.

Please contact us if there is anything else you might want to know.

Minnesota Police Department
