This is Raven's mother, Tonja. Myself and my husband traveled to Venice Beach in March to try to locate my daughter and bring her home before she turned 18. We found the car, but not her. We spent a week wasting our time with the LAPD. We spent numerous hours walking, searching and hoping we would find her. When we had to leave to return to work, My sister Tobi went to CA to take our place. She spent many days and countless hours searching for our beloved Raven. She walked hundreds of miles in search of Raven. Then when Raven was located and her location was relayed to my sister, it was also relayed to police because Raven's safety is a concern. Sadly the police beat Tobi to Raven's location. They took Raven to the police station to question her and be able to finally wash their hands of her.Look below to see a 7News report featuring comments from Furlong's mother. That's followed by our previous coverage. Continue for our previous coverage, including more photos.
Now that the police are "off" the case, they will no longer be a stumbling block for us. AS HER MOTHER, I WOULD NOT SPEND THE TIME AND MONEY AND ENERGY THAT I HAVE OR THAT MY FAMILY HAS, IF I DID NOT BELIEVE THAT SHE WAS TRULY IN DANGER!
I am not doing this to be controlling, I never have been that kind of person. I am doing this to SAVE MY DAUGHTER'S LIFE!
