A bit of general MP news

I finally finished writing up the resolved cases — well, almost all of them. They can go with the next update.

Two non-profits in Europe have started this thing where 404 Not Found pages become missing children posters. They’ll say “Page not found, neither is ____ _____” with a photo and vitals. I think that is an impressively clever idea and hope it catches on.

Bianca Jones‘s dad has been found guilty of killing her, in spite of the fact that her body hasn’t been found. Barely two years old at the time of her disappearance, she’s been missing less than a year. The authorities believe her father, D’Andre Lane, killed Bianca in anger after she had a potty accident. He says she was kidnapped during a carjacking.

Also in Detroit, they’ve put out an appeal to identify John D108 Doe, who was found wandering around the streets and has been living in a group home since 2008. He may actually have been homeless in Detroit as far back as 2004. John Doe isn’t violent, but he can’t take care of himself and needs constant supervision. He has schizophrenia and is nearly mute. From his picture I’d guess he was in his late thirties or his forties. His state guardian says if his family is identified but can’t or won’t take care of him, she’ll continue to do it.
