Ideabird 4/4/12

She finds the gym bag with torn clothes and shredded papers of the missing college student, but for some reason can't summon the will to call the police. Every night for a week she watches the news of the student's family & friends crying, pleading for help in finding the missing person. The more she watches, the more she is depressed. But still she cannot call.
