Snow Globe was at the College off Al Tahoe, located 5 miles from the casinos FYI. I just hope she didn't pass out in the snow walking back to her hotel, that was a 3 day RAVE so it is a possibility. God Bless her and her family, I will be praying for her

earth420 don't be so naive. If you knew anything about the Reno/Tahoe area, you would know there are plenty of family concerts that are for all ages. Yes, under 21 can't be on the casino floor, but most casinos have arcades, family areas, it's not just a "Casino". So yes, she was where she was allowed to be and hopefully someone finds her soon. Temperatures were -2 degrees, and it's an outdoor event, not the best combination.

What is a 19 yr old girl doing in a casino in the 1st place???? Where are the ID checkers?? I know there was a music festival, but it was DIRECTLY tied to a casino event .... and NO ONE under 21 should be allowed to go to these events. Sorry that I'm getting a little off the subject ... but if we take control of the age requirement for these things, perhaps young girls would not find themselves in "situations". I wish I could help you locate her ... but she shouldn't have been there in the 1st place. Ok I'll get off my soapbox now. I sure hope she has not met up with any foul play. My God assist those in search and rescue and find her quickly and not in harm's way.
