Family of missing First Nation teen fears for her safety

Members of a Winnipeg family say they’re afraid for the safety of 15-year-old Pretty Plume Cobiness.

According to a post on Facebook, Cobiness was last seen leaving Studio 393 in Portage Place wearing a black T-shirt with a white logo. The First Nation teen is approximately five feet six inches tall, weighs about 170 pounds, and has long brown hair.

Her brother, Pete Cobiness, says no one in her family has heard from her since Saturday. 

"You never know and if you’re in the city, that’s what really worries me — some crazy stuff goes on out here," he told CBC News on Tuesday.

Winnipeg police confirm that Cobiness was reported missing on Saturday, Aug. 16.

Her disappearance came just one day before the body of another 15-year-old girl, Tina Fontaine, was discovered in the Red River in Winnipeg.

This is tragic. ANOTHER missing aboriginal girl in Canada. Not even a day after Tina Fontaine was found, murdered.

Please signal boost!

everybody has that one game that completely ruined them like for better or worse there’s that one game with a plot that destroyed your insides and characters that stole your heart and art and design that reduced you to tears and you just want to hold the game in your arms and cry like a small child bc it’s your game

plus, the comic he linked to was fully pornographic. a gross human being.

Yeah, I saw the comic he tweeted. JonTron conveniently left out the five naked guys she’s depicted as having sex with at once. That is what I would call pornographic.

Pornography is “intended to stimulate erotic rather than aesthetic or emotional feelings.” That comic was not intended to be stimulating; its purpose was to comment on controversy.

I really couldn’t give a crap about the literal definition of pornography. The point is that it would be against Twitter’s rules, and that it’s a lot worse than someone being “depicted naked briefly.”
