WTF!?! I understand, but I don't believe in, the praying part but what's with the fasting?
WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah — Friends and family of a 28-year-old Utah mother who disappeared nearly a week ago are fasting and praying for her safe return as volunteers post thousands of fliers with her image on it.
Susan Powell was reported missing Monday under what police are calling suspicious circumstances. A prayer service attended by about 100 people was held for her on Saturday in West Valley City.
Authorities searched a desert area where husband Josh Powell says he took the couple's two young children, ages 2 and 4, camping last weekend in freezing conditions.
Josh Powell returned Monday night, after police had already received a call from relatives who had not heard from the Powell family.
He declined to answer questions from reporters Saturday.
