RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I would like to thank Think Out Loud for bring to light this important subject. Unfortunately this is all too common an occurrence. On any given day there are over 100,000 active missing persons cases, not to mention the many, many more that have fallen out of the public spotlight.
Unfortunately, there are not nearly enough resources for the families of the missing. I was upset to see unkind inferences made about the case on various websites. I wish that people were more interested in helping and less in being "armchair" detectives. One of the best things that the public can do is to spread the word. Each time a missing persons face is passed along, the chance of finding them increases.
For people who wish to actually help in the search for missing persons, here are a few important resources in addition to Facebook and Myspace.:
Finally, to Kyron's family, know that you are in our prayers.
