    Haven't been heard from since Sunday night. Police are searching a 30-mile radius from the cell tower where their last phone call was transmitted from.

    Rarely do stories like these end happily.

    I have a question.

    2 of these girls are from California, and 1 from Canada.

    The girl from Canada, I can understand, but what in the world is the reason from leaving warm, sunny California to North Da-dam-kota?

    And they play softball. In North Dakota. Their softball season must last about a week.

    This is sad and I have a bad feeling it's only going to get worse. Stories like this never seem to end well.

    What level is Dickinson State, though? D-II?

    Man. I know some people at the Dickinson newspaper. And was just reading some of the comments on their site about their disappearance (why there'd be comments allowed on a story like this, I don't know, although it looks like the "worst" that happened was a fight between people blaming police for not searching enough).

    Anyway, here's a tame one, but still, especially that it appeared likely it was an accident from the start, it's like, "Thanks, Detective. I'm sure the authorities weren't thinking of this until you posted it on the newspaper's site."

    Man. Reading the wire story, and all three were in the car, 12 feet of water, and no one got out?

    Something's missing, here.

    I don't know. There was a 20/20 special once that had what to do if your car is submerged. Even in a small amount of water, the panic that hits usually does people in.

    The three often would go to the lake to star gaze:

    Even in shallow water you can't open the doors. If you can't roll down the windows (electrical short), then you need something to break a window like a hammer, spark plug or one of the tools they now sell.
