This Tuesday, May 5, 2015 photo provided by the Ada County Sheriff’s office shows a message "Destiny, Prom?" painted in large pink and blue letters on the side of the Black Cliffs east of Boise.  Authorities are looking for a teen who wanted a date with Destiny and hoped to get it by spray-painting a prom proposal on an Idaho cliffside. The person could face a misdemeanor charge of injury by graffiti, which is punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of $1,000.
