Diamond Wall's Cryptic Facebook Status Update Adds To Puzzle Of Missing Teen (UPDATED)

Police in Pennsylvania say a missing teen's cryptic Facebook status update has caused heightened concern for her safety.

UPDATE: A spokeswoman for Pittsburgh police told The Huffington Post that Diamond Wall has been found safe. The teen, according to police, walked into a East Liberty school on her own today. She was unharmed. A fight with her mother had allegedly caused her to run away. No further details are available at this time.


The message on 16-year-old Diamond Wall's Facebook page is just three letters long. However, police say it speaks volumes to the dire need to locate the missing girl.

The message-- "R.I.P." –- the common abbreviation for "rest in peace," was posted as Wall's status update on Sunday. It remains unclear if Wall herself posted the message.

Police say Wall, a resident of Pittsburgh, was last seen at about 10 a.m. Saturday, in the East Hills region. Her current whereabouts remain a mystery and she has not been seen since.
