>Video, audio as follows: So many children disappear. It is a sad fact of life in 2075. Yet this child is special. This beautiful little girl has an intellect, skills and talents that were developed and have been honed at an Aztechnology training school. My husband and I have worked long and hard to raise her, and we love her dearly. I’m sure that she was taken by those who have a desire to use her as a tool against her parent company. She was seen last at the shipping yards in Downtown Seattle, and there was a sighting in Salt Lake City recently.
(the woman in the video pauses, tears streaming down her cheeks)
>I beg your pardon, I…my husband and myself are scientists, we aren’t really used to…I’m not used to…this. Being driven by an emotional appeal, this heartache. My daughter…my Ashley. We just want you home, safe, warm, fed. Whoever’s doing this to you, whoever’s taken you, I can assure you they will pay. We’ll find you! Please, if anyone has any idea of where my sweet Ashley is, we are offering a reward for information about her whereabouts. And we will pay handsomely for her safe return.
-A reward has been posted: 50,000¥ for information leading to the safe return of Ashley Marie Thomas to her parents, Hannah and Jürgen Thomas. 750,000¥ for her return, safe and unharmed. The poster of this message has a private commcode.
EDIT: Ashley was last seen in this video clip departing her home with this girl. They seem to be close in the video clip; it is possible they may still be in each others’ company.
EDIT: A recent sighting placed Ashley in Pueblo Corporate Council unconscious inside of a semi truck at a Mega Shack!. There are several individuals who were sighted with her. Two of these individuals, Bartholomew Reynolds and Zeke Dimell, are former UCAS military personnel and should be considered armed and dangerous. One is an unknown, SINless individual with strange eyes and an active magical aura. And the last is another SINless individual with a strong magical aura and several spirits in his presence. It is possible that these individuals may have kidnapped Ashley, although no demands have been presented at this time.
We at AzNet Central hope that reason will guide these individuals into returning Ashley to her home before more extreme measures must be taken to recover this poor lost child. As a result of the dangerous situation, we caution all non-security cleared personnel from attempting any recovery action. The reward for Ashley’s return has been raised to 999,999¥. A 1¥ bonus will be awarded for the names of the other individuals involved in her heinous abduction.
