  • How do you know that I am not like Brad Pitt? Though to put things right I am more like arm pit. Still a mug shot.

  • Sorry if it came across that I was making light of the situation. I'm certainly not criticising the girl's looks in any way. What I was pointing out was that every time someone goes missing the Ipswich Star always seem to be able to find the worse possible picture ever taken of them.

  • What is wrong with you people? A young girl goes missing and all you can do is criticise her photo and where she lives?. I bet you lot don't look like Brad Pitt either? How would you feel if this was your daughtersister that was missing? I hope she is found safe and sound.

  • Maybe it's the most recent picture which is a good likeness to what the girl looks like.
