    How’s about a permanent blog entry where readers can note things like “age-progression pic looks nothing like person who disappeared,”* and other notions, thoughts, ideas, helpful hints, etc., about the excellent missing-persons entries? (*see Heather Janelle Lewis, who might look like if she had time traveled back to 1991 and appeared in a yearbook photo after a car accident had changed her appearance and, probably, her whole personality, based on the actual pix of her, dramatically)? Not being catty but some of those age-progressions do more harm than good.

      An interesting idea, but I rarely form an opinion on APs. My visual memory is very poor and I have a hard time telling faces apart and recognizing even people I know (I once had to be introduced to the same person three times in the same day), so I don’t take much notice of whether APs look like the missing person or not.

      I do think the AP of Megan Emerick turned a very pretty girl into a frumpy rather hideous-looking woman.

        AP Megan looks like a chronic alcoholic troll-woman who probably is living under a bridge right now – yikes. Another type of comment for a blog entry of that nature might be along the lines of, “Rachael Garden and Laureen Rahn, who both disappeared within a month of each other in New Hampshire, look enough alike to be sisters or, at least, first cousins, so I am hoping NH authorities really took that into consideration, and didn’t just write off both as possible runaways, or Rachael as having been probably raped & murdered by the three guys in the car she was last seen taking to, unless the guys in the car were serial killers operating in New England at the time.” You do make that point anyway, but a permanent entry would allow people to comment further. A mini-WebSleuths might spring up.

    The note I made about this in their casefiles is perhaps the only time I’ve ever inserted my own personal observation into a Charley Project file. But the circumstances of their disappearances aren’t that similar. It looks like Laureen might have run away, at least at first.
