I just dont understand how a girlfriend just leaves her bf get kicked out of the bar and not check to see if hes okay until 4am. That speaks volumes on how she really cared about him, especially his friends. My prays to his family. I really hope they find him safe and sound.

Kiii, there are certain things that can happen within a night of drinking, clearly she didn't know this would happen so don't sit here and put blame on her. How dare you. Do you not think she feels terrible already?! People like you really piss me off to even question how much she cares about him.

Kiki, I agree. I cannot even fathom what would possess someone to let their partner/friend be kicked out of a bar and not go with them!

Katie and Kii, this is not a time to pass judgement! Very easy and ignorant thing to say. You two must be perfect in all aspects of life. I'm sure the victims girlfriend is struggling every second of every day, although she did NOTHING wrong. I hope that something is solved and the true story comes out. This happens too often and needs to end!

Katie isn't passing judgement--i agree with what she says. but you are correct as well, Ben (and hypocritical as well, considering that you passed judgement on katie and kii, calling them ignorant and belittling their words). God Bless this missing man and his family. :(
