I’m purging SO MANY cases

Yeah, I worked on the letter F today, doing the vehicle thing. Yesterday it was D. And as I go along I keep checking if the person is still listed as missing with the original source, because if they aren’t, there’s a good chance they aren’t missing anymore. In which case I purge (just delete) the case.

I’ve deleted SO MANY cases. I hadn’t done a full-on purge in awhile and it shows. The number of cases listed on the site has dropped below 15,000 again. And I’m far from done. I’ve got the letters G, H, J, K, L, M, N, P, R, S and T left to do.

But I am happy with how things have been going and am happy with my life in general so far. I hope you are happy too.

    The won’t be listed as resolved?

      No, because I don’t know when or where they were found or in what condition (alive or not), and if they’re alive I want to protect their privacy.

    I appreciate your tireless efforts and what you have done for the past nearly two decades, Meaghan. I have to worry though if this may mirror what happened to the former Michelle Knight: she was abducted, her family never bothered to look for her and while she was on an official missing database, she was removed less than two years later. Granted, plenty of pitfalls, missed signs and other factors lead to what happened there, but it’s still worth considering. Keep in mind this is not a criticism of you and I hope it doesn’t come off as such.

      There’s always that risk. But the greater risk is that they’re going to find themselves listed on my website and get angry at me. It’s happened.
