Here’s a question for the MP devotees out there: at what point do you think law enforcement should just give up? By which I mean, not just make the case inactive, but close it and donate the files to the local historical society and announce they’re not going to spend another dollar of public money on it because too much time has passed?
This past spring I wrote in astonishment about how the NCMEC had put up a poster for Noel Elijah Davis, who disappeared in 19-fracking-15. I have not put up a casefile for Noel, and do not intend to, because I really don’t see the point. I even joked about it with my friends, suggesting the NCMEC might make an age-progression of him to his current age (which would now be 116), and the picture would of course be of a skull.
Yet, there is a Reno Police Department phone number on the poster, so I assume they must have a file open for him.
