Update-There is no way to word this that makes this statement less painful. A female body was found tonight by rescue crews in the Canal in Lambertville that does match the description of Sarah. It's excruciatingly hard to say that the search for Sarah might be over but we can not abandon the family that we have created over the past 4 days and for most - over the past 16 years. This community is testament alone to the overwhelming Love that we had for Sarah, the same Love that she showed all of us day in and day out. We ask that you reflect and grieve and reach out for support if you need it. Please reserve any rhetoric outside of those lines and instead convert that energy into a positive force and send it to her family and closest friends. As involved as we feel - it is unimaginable how they feel. Thank you everyone for everything - we did this together - Stay Strong for Sarah. Rest in Piece kind soul.
Thank you everybody for the support. This was truly one of the most special people I've ever know in my entire life. Just a gentle kind soul who has helped a lot of people.
She was walking home from the bar we worked at around 2 am Friday and made it within a couple blocks of her house and vanished. This person is about as close as anybody could be to me. We've worked together for most of a decade, she has been at every holiday party I've been to, my niece considers her a second mom. She is my little sisters heterosexual lifemate (I love that term). I was going to go home and look for her, but my sister has asked me to wait until she is found.
I don't know if making this thread will help, maybe if y'all want to repost some stuff on FB or anything, I'd appreciate it. I want my friend back and this is a heartbreaking nightmare.
