    I am so grateful for your efforts I am in Iraq and I am the sister of Ada Marie Odell and I just found out about my sister being missing. No one notified me about this and I am so upset. Is it possible to post her case in the newspaper again…I recently found out that her ex husband did not live so far away from her and he was convicted of Heroin charges previously too… please contact me at
