Nebraska family in fear after teen beauty queen disappears

1912255_788182414535428_1083824482_o
Authorities are searching for a teenage beauty queen who vanished at at 8:37 p.m. Sunday (03/02/2014) without a trace after she took out the trash at her Bellevue, Nebraska home. Michaela Wells, 16, had just spent the day shopping with her mother for the gown she’d wear in the upcoming USA National Pageant in Florida. ”She couldn’t be happier,” Theresa Norris, her mother, told FoxNews.com. “Shecouldn’t get a smile off her face because she was also asked out [on a date].”

Norris explained that her daughter was planning to attend a high school “military ball” for students involved with the junior ROTC program. Wells told her grandmother, who was visiting at the time, that she was going to take out the trash from her Bellevue, Neb., home. ”It usually takes her 10 minutes,” she said.

Time passed at the family began to panic. The teen’s dad drove through the neighborhood and the mom called friends. It was late Sunday night and the girl was last seen at about 8:30 p.m. Norris said her daughter was not dressed for the weather and even left her cell phone inside the house. ”Her friends are in shock as some of them had just talked to her the afternoon before she vanished to make plans for the week,” Norris said in a Facebook post.

A police spokeswoman said the teen was entered in the database as a missing juvenile, the newspaper reported. Bellevue police do not believe that a pageant winner who was reported missing Monday was taken against her will, but the girl’s parents do.

Wells is home schooled and has a USA National Miss Pageant scheduled for June. According to a Nebraska State fair biography, the teen has used her crown to promote awareness of her younger brother’s disease called Food Protein Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome. Wells, the 2013 winner of the USA National Miss Nebraska Teen competition, is about 5’6” tall, weighs 120 pounds, has long brown hair and brown eyes. She was last wearing blue jeans, black slip on pumps, black tank top with teal overshirt and a red floor length coat with fur around the hood..

If you have any information please contact the Bellevue Police Department at (402) 293-3100 or 911.

NEW: Anti-Rape Underwear

Posted by Sandra On January - 20 - 2014 Comments Off

AR WEAR Invents “Anti-Rape” Underwear 

images (1)

We developed this product so that women and girls could have more power to control the outcome of a sexual assault. We wanted to offer some peace of mind in situations that cause feelings of apprehension, such as going out on a blind date, taking an evening run, “clubbing”, traveling in unfamiliar countries, and any other activity that might make one anxious about the possibility of an assault.

We believe that the tools of self-defense currently available are not effective in many common settings of sexual assault. Training in martial arts or products such as pepper spray, tear gas, stun guns, etc. can only help if the potential victim is extremely alert and bold when an attack occurs. Worse still, products of self-defense can be taken from the victim and used against her.

We read studies reviewing the statistics of resisting assault, whether by forceful or non-forceful means. We learned that resistance increases the chance of avoiding a completed rape without making the victim more likely to be physically injured. We concluded that an item of clothing that creates an effective barrier layer can allow women and girls to passively resist an attacker, in addition to any other form of resistance they may be able to carry out at the time of an assault.

Our goal is to offer a wide range of wearable items, which will include assorted types and styles of underwear, running shorts, traveling shorts, etc., suitable for different situations and the styles of individual users. The challenge was to design products that can be worn comfortably while still being able to frustrate an assault effectively. The garments must be very difficult for someone else to remove by either force or stealth (in situations where the victim cannot resist because she has had too much to drink, was drugged, or is asleep). They needed to be resistant to pulling, tearing and cutting while being comfortable to wear during normal activities and, as in the case of underwear, fit smoothly under form-fitting outer clothing…and we think we’ve developed that!
