Went Missing - 04/03/14
Let's call it a pet peeve. I wish the phrase "went missing" would just disappear. I don't know when it became fashionable to describe a missing person as went missing. Example: "John Doe went missing Tuesday." I heard it a lot in the past week when people were discussing a missing teenage boy from Nolensville. I'm glad to report he was found and is safe.
We're beginning to understand why he "DISAPPEARED, VANISHED, DIDN'T COME HOME, RAN AWAY.'' I'll keep you posted unless somehow I "go missing" after which someone will almost certainly write or report "Couch went missing."
