Friends of Bailey's have said she and Stout had a relationship, The Associated Press reported .They were reported missing on Friday by her family after Bailey failed to show up for work.
Im still holding out hope. Presumed doesn't mean she is, right? This makes me so sad. And her dad... I can't imagine what he is going through and he is absolutely helpless in this. He can't do anything but sit there with this on his mind 24/7.
