Reported the Daily Beast: ‘Friend Cheyenne Fry, 18—who calls Britney “the most fearless girl I ever met”—says she spoke to her hours before she vanished. Fry says Britney was dropped off at the high school by a mutual friend, and that she’d told Fry her dad was supposed to pick her up. All Fry knows about the truck’s driver is that Britney had told her he “was one of her new friends.’
No bail had been set, according to information released Friday afternoon by the jail.
