MP of the week: Claudia Tinsley

This week’s featured missing person is Claudia Tinsley, a 24-year-old missing since September 8, 1996. Like last week’s case, she’s an Ohioan; she’s from Toledo (which I always mix up with Dayton for some reason).

Claudia, a mother of three, was using crack cocaine at the time of her disappearance. Police believe she met with foul play. The most recent news I can find that mentions her is from 2006, ten years almost to the day.

In other news, the internet mysteriously went dead yesterday and was remained so; nothing was working, not even the weather app on my cell phone. Frankly I welcomed it, because it kept me from the nonstop election coverage drenching the news and social media. I hoped it would remain dead until the morning — I really don’t want to hear about the winner until then. Otherwise I’ll be hyperventilating and generally tearing my hair out all night.

But then the internet came back on shortly after ten and my hopes were dashed. I’m trying to stay away from Facebook but I’ve got some apps on my computer that automatically notify me of the headlines. I also had to beg Michael to change the channel away from the news when he got home. So he turned over to Cops. We always love Cops. As Michael says, no matter how bad a day he’s had, the Cops people are having a worse one.

I have these anti-anxiety pills I take as needed; I don’t take them very often, probably not as often as I should. Like, I don’t carry them on me, so if I have a panic attack away from home I just have to ride it out unassisted. I might take one of them tonight though. In fact I have half a mind to take about five and just sleep through the storm.

    Wow. Tinsley was my maiden name, though I don’t think we are related and have no known relatives in Ohio. I do hope she is in a better place.

      Someone with the surname Poling, from Ohio, is a regular viewer of the Charley Project’s Facebook page. Not only did this person “like” the page, they also react to and sometimes comment on posts regularly. The person is from Ohio, and so am I, and I am related to a lot of Polings by marriage. I sent a Facebook message to this person about my Poling relatives and asked if we might be related, but got no response.
