Raven Furlong, missing teen, found -- but she refuses to return home to her family
Earlier this year, we told you about the search for Raven Furlong, a missing seventeen-year-old from Aurora. Like Kara Nichols, nineteen, and Kelsie Jean Schelling, 21, two other women whose whereabouts remain unknown, she had a profile on a modeling-related website. Furlong's car was found in L.A. last month -- and now, police say they've made contact with her. But because she's turned eighteen, she doesn't have to return home, and declined to do so, even though her mother fears she's in danger. Photos, video and details below.
Big photos below.
Here are the details Furlong shared about herself on the website Model Mayhem:
located in Denver/Aurora
will travel if expenses are considered
My hair is short and pink right now, but it changes a few times a year.
no tattoos or piercings except my earlobes and a star on my wrist, but I am interested in alternative modeling, and I have tattoos on the way (shoulder & rib piece).
My ethnicity is not "other". :) I am European (Irish, French, Swiss, German) and Native American.
I love to do make-up and art.

A bit more about me:Furlong's loved ones coordinated a search for her through the Help Find Raven Cassidy Furlong Facebook page, and this past month, her car was found in the Los Angeles area. In it were a number of items that concerned Furlong's mom, Tonja Mahaffey, including a pair of men's shoes:
I'm pretty much a newb, but I believe I have great potential.
I'm looking to build my portfolio, and I want to explore many different types/styles of modeling.
But while area police continued their search, they noted a potential rub: At the time the car was found, Raven was about to turn eighteen. If she was found after that point and didn't want to return to Colorado with her parents, she'd be within her legal rights as an adult.
And that's precisely what happened.
