Big update today

I’m trying to make up for my six days of silence. I think I added like 15 cases and updated another 19 or so, plus three resolves. I added five runaways. Normally I go through the alphabet of regular cases to add, then add runaways and family abductions once I reach Z, then start the alphabet again. But it’s been months since I added any runaway or family abduction cases, and I’m only at M right now, so I decided to add a few.

As for the Headache…today will be day 3, the last day of my second course of dexamethasone, and I’m honestly not sure whether the stuff is doing its trick or not. I think it’s too early to tell. Last night I was in a great deal of pain. I took a lot of Ultracet and it had no affect at all. I was at the movies watching Pirates of the Caribbean IV with Michael (to celebrate his birthday), and I didn’t want to be a party pooper, so I was trying to contain it all and not fuss. Midway through the movie I got up, left the theater, went outside, removed one shoe and sock, found a large rock and deliberately dropped it on my foot several times — on the theory that a greater pain might get rid of a lesser one. Then I re-shod myself limped back inside (and now my foot is black and blue). I think my head did feel a little better for awhile. Early this morning it didn’t hurt so bad, but I think it might be starting again. Sigh. I really, really hope the steroids work.

    Hey Meghan. Take your time and make sure you get yourself better before you go working on anymore updates. That’s an order. 🙂

    Hi Meaghan,

    I just saw that you updated Jeannette Kamahele page but I noticed that you continue to get one fact wrong.

    Yokohama High School is not in Hawaii, its in Japan.

    Yokohama American High School was established in 1947, at the conclusion of WW2, to educate the children of American’s who were living in Japan during the post war occupation.

    On April 19 1960 the Yokohama American High School was renamed as the Nile C Kinnick Jr. Navy Dependents School. It was named in honor of Nile C. Kinnick Jr. a renowned football player killed in WW2, but is still called Yokohama American High, YOHI for short, by its alumni. The photo I have of Jeanette (you have it also) is taken for her yearbook.

    From: Motivated About Missing Persons
    By Carole Moore

    “My first missing person wasn’t someone I came in contact with as a result of my job as a police officer. Instead, it was a girl with whom I attended high school.

    My father was a Navy lifer, so I grew up on military bases. It was a good way to live – we moved often and I had no problem making myself at home wherever we went. When Dad received orders to Japan, I enrolled in Nile C. Kinnick High School, named for a famous college football player who died during World War II.

    We called the school Yo-Hi because it was located in Yokohama. I had lots of good friends there and, because it was a small school, everybody knew everybody else.
    One year behind me was a girl named Jeannette Kamahele. Thin, with long, black hair parted down the middle and of Hawaiian extraction, I saw Jeannette often in the halls. We weren’t close friends, but we spoke and I liked her. She had dark, sparkling eyes and a reputation for being a happy, upbeat person.

    Unlike schools stateside, the graduates and attendees of Department of Defense schools usually scatter to the four corners of the world once they graduate. So when it came time to engineer a reunion, former Yo-Hi students representing many different years came from all around the country.

    One person was missing: Jeannette Kamahele. There were mentions in classmate chatter that she had disappeared years ago. But when I attended the reunion, I found out the details: She had gone missing in Sonoma County, after leaving Santa Rosa Community College, where she was a student“.
