Even more Facebook

Although this isn’t Monday (and I’ve kind of discontinued my Make-a-List Mondays cause I just don’t want to do them anymore) I thought you guys would appreciate another list of Facebook pages out there created for specific missing persons cases.

These are the ones I know about which weren’t on my previous two lists of this. The first two lists are here and here. This is not meant to be an exhaustive list; it’s just cases on the Charley Project where they have currently existing Facebook pages that I know about. Some people have more than one page for them.

I would also like to state that social media’s a great resource to publicize missing persons cases, and you don’t need to be a relative or anything to make a Facebook page or group for a missing person; you can just be an interested party.

A funny thing happened at the sea lions exhibit

So Michael and a friend of ours and I visited the zoo yesterday and we were looking at the sea lions when someone behind me touched my arm and said my name. I turned around, confused, as both my companions were in front of me. A guy I didn’t recognize said, “I’m [name of a true crime blog I read.]”

This person, whose identity he’s pretty big about keeping secret, writes a crime blog I really admire. And he really admired my work too; in fact his blog was inspired by the Charley Project.

We knew each other but only slightly. Before yesterday I didn’t even know his real name or anything about his personal life. And then he randomly recognized me at the zoo.

He says he’s constantly studying people’s faces, by habit, cause you never know when you might run into a missing person. I’ve posted plenty of photos of myself on this blog.

The crazy thing is he doesn’t even live anywhere near my local area. But he just happened to visit my local zoo that day, on the same day I happened to visit it, and happened to recognize me. We were both gobsmacked.

It was quite a day.

Um…wut

Per the NamUs case for James Charles Stanford, “James had told family members before he went missing that he wanted to move to Texas or California to join a convent.”

But James is male. And not even a little child, a teenager. I’m pretty sure they don’t let teenage boys join convents. That has got to be frowned upon at the very least.

Do they mean a monastery maybe?

*Headdesk right through the desk to the floor*

So I wrote up a runaway case off the NCMEC. Her name is Breanna. After I wrote up the basics from her poster, I was doing more research on the case for details to add to her casefile. She wasn’t in NamUs. I soon discovered why: an article saying she was found safe in August 2016.

I called the NCMEC about this and yup, she was found safe almost two years ago. But she’s still on their website. This is like the sixth time this has happened.

NamUs did have another Breanna listed, a young woman, so I decided to post that case instead. And the same thing happened: I wrote up the case with the NamUs details, then on further research discovered this Breanna had been found murdered in January 2017, only a few months after she disappeared. And she is still on NamUs.

I am seriously fed up.

Awesome Indianapolis Star series on human trafficking

I just wanted to give a shout-out to a wonderful ten-part series exploring human trafficking around the world that the Indianapolis Star did early this year. Here’s all ten parts in order:

*A Latin American follower on Facebook tells me that, contrary to the information in that part of the series, prostitution isn’t legal in Bolivia, merely tolerated. She referred me to this Spanish language article about Bolivian sex workers organizing and campaigning to legalize sex work so it can be regulated and they can get protection under the law.
