Missing 15 Year Old Emily Lalinsky Found Alive with 37 Year Old Family Friend Robert Messer in A Michigan Field
15 year old Emily Lalinsky and 37 year old Robert Messer had been missing since Sunday, October 27, 2013. The two have not been seen since Sunday, when they were thought to be going on a day trip to Ann Arbor, MI. Robert Messner was a friend of the family for 10 years. Police believe hat the teen is endangered based on the ongoing investigation as they believed that Mr. Messer’s mental state may be in question. This might serve as a example of caution to all parents when a 37 year old man starts taking such attention in a 15 year old girl, friend or no friend.

Police found notes from both Lalinsky and Messer at the man’s Salem Township home along with the pair’s cell phones. Both notes apologized for leaving.
“Please don’t ever doubt or forget that you are an amazing and wonderful mother and person,” Lalinsky’s note said. “I am so sorry I hurt you and if there was any other way, we would have done it.”
Messer’s letter had a similar theme.
“We are going today, she and I, because we have to — not because we want to leave you,” he wrote. “We are in love and cannot be apart from each other.”
Emily Lalinsky and Robert Messer were found on Tuesday in a field near 7 Mile Road and Chubb Road in Salem Township northeast of Ann Arbor, Michigan in Washtenaw County.
Emily Lalinsky is being treated at a hospital for minor, superficial wounds and Robert Messer is in custody.
