Charley mentioned in news articles again

This article that mentions the Charley Project is about the disappearance of Eric Wayne Pyles, who disappeared from Pennsylvania almost twelve years ago. Its kind of a strange case.

Anyway, the article says, “The nonprofit National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, missingkids.com, and the independent group, The Charley Project charleyproject.org, both have profiles of Pyles on their websites.” With actual clickable links there.

Which is nice, but I wish the news people would stop calling me a “group” or an “organization” or any of a number of incorrect appellations. I prefer to just call Charley a “missing persons database.”

Charley was also mentioned in this Washington Examiner article (I’m showing the cache of it, since the original link doesn’t work anymore) about Sherry Walker, who disappeared from Alexandria, VA in 2003. She had schizophrenia and had talked about checking herself into a hospital, so when she vanished, her neighbors thought she’d done just that and weren’t worried. The article quotes me saying she “had a habit of dropping out of sight.”

    Charles Randall Wood III (Trey) from the Charley Project is my son. He’s been missing since April 2, 2000. When the phone rings or someone knocks on my door — just for a minute I think it might be him. I just read the story from Oregon about Esther and it made me both happy and sad, but it does give me hope. If Trey never comes home I want him to at least be happy. But of course I do want to KNOW what happened. So many other families need closure for their sons or daughters too. My heart goes out to them and I do understand their heartache. Thanks to this project and blog our children are not forgotten.
