I think I’m getting back in the saddle

The past week has been a bit unproductive as I was afflicted with what was either a severe cold or severe allergies, not sure which. I was pretty miserable with coughing and general yuckiness and couldn’t get much done.

In the meantime, people have disappeared, people have been found (including Delilah Dawn Hopkins, finally identified after being missing almost twenty years), the wheel turns.

The good news is that, per FBI data, the rate of missing persons and missing kids in particular is at its lowest since 1990. It’s the start of a lovely summer, people. Let your kids play outside, provided the pollen count’s down.

    Meaghan, would it be better if you add the donation link at your front page? So we don’t have to scroll all way back to find that link

      It is on the front page of the blog. Look at the strip across the top, above “The Charley Project” header. The PayPal link is at the top of every casefile.

    A few years ago, my hayfever was so bad that I couldn’t open my eyes.

      Wow. I’ve never had it that bad.

    Something hit me when I read about Krista Maria Dela Rosa’s disappearance. For some reason it reminded me of Katie Eggleston’s disappearance.

    Krista disappeared on August 3, 1990. Katie disappeared on August 2, 1993. There are some similarities. Both were young, happy with their jobs, and both were last seen in cars driven by African American men. Both seem to have gotten into the cars voluntarily, at least initially. Katie was (probably) abducted from a place she went to as part of her sales job. Krista was last seen leaving home.

    Meaghan, with the crazy weather and all the rain, warm and then cold and cool temperatures, we are all dealing with something. I cut my grass and my neighbors grass more then a week ago. I finally called it a day, and went in the house, and had a cup of tea, bowl of soup, and turned the heat up. It was the almost the end of May, and I still have the heat on. I still waiting to drain the snow blower.

    I came across this YouTube video by a vlogger who was abducted by her noncustodial father when she was 7. An Amber Alert was put out immediately because her father was schizophrenic and had previously made statements about wanting to take her to heaven. I haven’t watched the whole video, but she seems to believe her father was planning to kill her that day.

    She says she made the video because she wants to get rid of people’s preconceived notions of child abductions and show people that a child isn’t necessarily safe just because the kidnapper happens to be a parent. It’s a very good listen.
