Pray for Micah Rine Pate

I received a facebook message early this morning from Melody Benton.  It said:
Micah is missing.  She went for a walk last night at 8pm and has not returned. Please pray!
She and her husband live in Bartlett, TN.  
She is originally from Searcy, AR, and is the daughter of Coach Dennis Rine (Harding Academy), and Terri Rine, who is a teacher at Harding University.  Her older brother is Casey Rine.
Jordan and I had Coach Rine as a high school teacher, and Jordan graduated from high school with Casey.
Our families worshiped with the Rines at Cloverdale and College church.
Please pray for Micah, her safe return and her family.
Here's the link to the "Pray for Micah Rine Pate" on facebook.

Another email from Harding University:

Micah Rine Pate, the daughter of Dennis and Terri Rine and wife of Thomas Pate, is missing.  She and Thomas live in Bartlett, TN, a suburb of Memphis.  A missing persons report was filed late last night and the police are searching for her.  She went for a walk at 8:00 last night and has not been heard from or seen since. At this time all we know to ask for is your prayers and prayers of others that you know.

Update from Bartlett newspaper:
The Bartlett Police Department is looking into the report of a missing person, Micah Denise Pate.
The initial report was from her husband who advised reporting officers that on Thursday, April 30 at approximately 8:30 PM, Ms Pate had left her residence in Bartlett to go running in the area and at 10:30 PM had not returned.

I, too, received an email this morning about Micah. We are all praying. I just cannot imagine what her family is going through right now.
