    i find it quite harrowing tbh.. i hope it's nothing but just to make sure.

    edit: apparently she's ok so not too much cause for alarm. i wonder why she's been signalling help though..

    Not saying nothing has gone on, but there's some serious straw clutching going on on Twitter. Just lots of people going 'OMG THIS IS SO CREEPY' and looking for stuff that isn't there/makes no sense.

    Still haven't managed to find out how/why this started. Was it just some people who watch her videos putting 2 and 2 together and getting 5?

    Lmao dude there's definitely something wrong with her mentally just watch her recent videos, she's fked up. She definitely isn't taken hostage though as police have confirmed the latter.

    Nothing life threatening though. She's just a junkie it seems.

    yes that's likely true to some extent. apparently she was acting very strangely in recent videos by like repeating herself over and over and seeming constantly distracted by something in the background (in multiple videos). i think drugging is most likely but it still seems suspicious.

    do you even live near it ? i would agree BG is residential, as is much of that area of east london. but it also has a shop street ( wouldnt go as far as to say high street ; actually i take it back its a high street, it has super chains, small indie shops and cloth shops ), well used by the asian population, and its high street is one of the few in the area, you have mare street ,bethnal green, whitechapel and other areas.. Bg also has pubs a tube station and is pretty packed some nights.

    claiming its a shady area is like claiming whitechapel is since jack the ripper was killing people there.. if your gonna compare it atleast compare it with the areas around it, ( it is in tower hamlet but most see it as hackney, since they mins apart and most dont know where one ends and the other starts ), so hackney, islington,camden and haringey, most those ares have place and areas much much worse than BG, where if your caught thre after dark on your own, the chances of getting robbed are high.
    Yeah I live near there and I've been there. It's shady compared to most places in the UK. I've never been to Hackney but I'm pretty sure islington's not shady... isn't that where the Emirates stadium is?

    Yeah I'll just assume she 's on drugs then. I didn't know who she was but then realised she was in a video with ComedyShortsGamer.

    I didn't know who she was until I saw it in the news. I went to her YouTube channel and watched a few of her early videos, then some more recent ones then the most recent ones. The way she changes is so strange. Looking through the YouTube comments there are all sorts of conspiracy therioes from her boyfriend is abusive and holding her hostage to she whispered help me or whatever. Tbh it sounds as if everyone's looking way to deeply unto the matter. It could be drugs and I feel as if the whole kidnapping idea is a bit far fetched. The whole thing does seem a bit off but it could also be a big hoax, you just don't know with youtubers now...

    SaveMarinaJoyce, number 1 trending hashtag.

    There is definitely something wrong going on. In her recent videos she appears to have sever bruising on her arms and legs. Could be from drug abuse, or physical abuse ?

    If you watch her recent videos she repeats a lot of what she says and just acts unnatural and is shakey. These are symptoms of Speed usage.

    UPDATE:
    @MPSEnfield
    Officers have visited YouTube user Marina Joyce. She is safe and well. #ETeam #savemarinajoyce

    I was reading around and apparently although she is safe and well, she does have problems [not life threatening] but due to privacy issues the police have not disclosed that information.

    Safe to say she is not being kept hostage. I think she's got on drugs and is an addict now. Bruises are from needles.
    Why should we care about a junkie?
