So NamUs 2.0 has been launched and I have to say, I personally like the improvements a lot. It’s nice to have everything on one page, for example, instead of having to keep clicking through multiple sections. You can search for more than one state at a time.
Best of all, you can now follow more than 50 cases! I’ve spent the last day or so going through cases just following them. It’s going to take awhile obviously. But being able to follow more cases is just great for me.
In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, I am profiling one Asian or Pacific Islander MP for every day of the month of May. Today’s case is Tilana Catarina Williams, a 20-year-old who disappeared from Auburn, Washington on July 1, 2014.
This is another case about which I know nothing about the circumstances of her disappearance. I did find this Google Plus account and this MySpace that I think might be hers; the photos resemble her, but I’m not sure and I certainly don’t want to accidentally use pictures that are of someone else.
If Tilana is alive — and I’ve find nothing to suggest she is not — she would have turned 25 last week. If that MySpace is hers, she may go by the nickname Lana.
If anyone happens to see this blog who knew Tilana, I invite them to comment below or shoot me an email.
