A bit confused

Just now I updated the case of the missing Luhk sisters from the Northern Mariana Islands: Faloma and Maleina. I added new age-progressions for them. In the process I noticed that the NCMEC now refers to Faloma as “Sa Luhk.” Nowhere else have I ever seen her called by that name. All the news accounts about the missing girls, as well as the official website about them, call her Faloma Luhk. But the name Faloma has utterly disappeared from her NCMEC poster.

I am not sure about this. I am thinking that perhaps her legal name is Sa Faloma Luhk, or perhaps Faloma Sa Luhk, and everyone called her Faloma. But until I get this figured out, assuming I ever do, the little girl is going to be called Faloma on my website.

[EDIT: The NCMEC is now calling her Faloma again. Shrug.]

And this week’s MP is….

Maleina Quitugua Luhk. Maleina was nine when she disappeared with her ten-year-old sister, Faloma, from the Northern Mariana Islands on May 25, 2011. I don’t have much on them; they were just gone. Authorities have said that a relative by marriage is considered a person of interest in the case. Maleina is short for her age and has a distinguishing birthmark on her cheek; it kind of looks like she smeared a bit of chocolate there.

Until I heard about those girls I didn’t even know the Northern Marianas, which are in the south Pacific, were part of the US. I think this may very well by the first MP of the week to come from a territory of the US, not a state.
