GothRNB's Religion News BlogVampirism:
In an unusual story about three missing kids, CBS Atlanta has learned three Cobb County students all disappeared within a few days of each other.

The three McEachern High School teens were said to be involved a Goth lifestyle, had an obsession with vampires, and then they disappeared each within a week of each other.

Two of the teens turned up over the weekend. But Shelby Elllis, a 16 year old sophomore, is still missing and her parents fear the worst.

Shelby has been missing for three weeks. On Oct. 11, she took the bus to school and never came home. Her last known activity on the Internet was logging onto the website “Vampire Freaks,” where her parents say she lived a double life.

“You have the obvious thoughts of pentagrams and candles and the crazy things that you see on TV that are associated with the darker cult lifestyle,” Rich Ellis said.

“A lot of them are in this dark, ‘let’s be gothic, let’s be different, let’s suck blood.’ All kinds of dark stuff,” Wendy Ellis said.

She said the three girls were fascinated with vampires and the dark side of life.
