I have posted in the past about certain missing persons who I feel have gotten short shrift from the media, owing to their not being pretty white girls.
I have been getting search engine hits like:
missing little girl from Milwaukee, Wisc., Alexis Patterson
where is my son amos mortier
Ouch. I can't imagine what it must be like to be in the shoes of Amos' mom or Alexis' parents. If one of my kids went missing, I would burn down the world to get him or her back, and I can imagine few torments worse than waiting for months (or even years) while resorting to searching for my child on yahoo or google.
