Articles about other kids in the wake of Jayme’s recovery

As often happens when a high-profile missing child is found, especially when they’re found safe, news agencies are dusting off their local missing kid cases and being all like, “Hey, you know how Jayme Closs was found? Here’s some kids missing in YOUR area and their parents hope they’ll get found too.” So far we’ve got:

I highly doubt Adji or Diana is alive. Adji is a special needs child and if he was abducted, I don’t think the abductor could have kept him long without attracting some attention. As for Diana, a suspect has been charged with her murder.

I finally did it!

I finally sat down, bit the bullet and wrote up Kyron Horman‘s case. It didn’t take as long as I thought — only four or five hours. Whew! Glad that’s done and over with. Cross that off on my mile-long list of Things I Really Should Get Around To Doing. (Another item on the list is “Donate clothes to the St. Vincent De Paul Society.” Got a basket of clothes that’s been in my car for about six months.)

The two other cases (yes, alas, only two) that I added today are also exceptional due to their age: Dennise Sullivan, a Connecticut girl missing for 49 years, abducted from rural Utah after a holdup and shooting that killed her mother and wounded the man that was with them, and Solomon Rose, missing from Maryland for 38 years and just added to the NCMEC.

Worldcat says there’s a book called Whatever Happened to Denise Sullivan? which is supposed to be about Dennise’s abduction. Gotta wonder how accurate it is if they didn’t spell her name right. There’s only one copy available and it’s at the Wisconsin Historical Society (?). I requested it through inter-library loan but they want $5 to ship it to me. I think I’ll bite.
