Perhaps you've heard of her, perhaps not, who is she? She is a twenty four year old female who has been missing now for some months. She was arrested back in September I believe for not paying an 89.00 resturant bill, she was clearly suffering from mental illness as she had proclaimed herself to be from "mars" here to avenge the death of Michael Jackson. She was released in the middle of the night with no i.d or anything else and has not been seen since. Now if this storyhas recieved any national coverage I have not seen it, I know Greta Van Sustern who covers alot of missing women cases has not that I have seen reported on it and if so it definitely has not seen the nightly coverage that alot of her missing women cases recieve.

The FBI has declined to get involved saying they dont have jurisdiction, the FBI doesnt have jurisdiction and they are a FEDERAL agency??????Correct me if im wrong but didnt the FBI send investigators to Aruba to look for Natilie Holloway? OK all of this is fine and good, if the media doesnt feel that her disappearance is worthy of coverage thats fine. But remember this, I found out about this case by reading a black newspaper, so the next time should anyone feel the need to ask the question "Why do you all need black newspapers, are BET, or Ebony Magazine", or "why do you always talk about racial stuff" you'll have your answer, peace.

It sounds just like a case of missing persons. I do not mean to come across as cold, but hundreds if not thousands of people go missing each year. The FBI does not have the resources to track down each one. Unless there is evidence of foul play or a federal law has been broken it should be outside of the FBI's jurisdiction. After looking up the name and doing some investigating it takes place in California. This is a local authority problem. Aruba was different in that it was an American citizen who disappeared under suspicious circumstances in an area that thrives on tourism. Authorities would want any questions answered.

I am not saying that just releasing her was the right thing to do. I do not know to what extent this case has been covered. I do not bother watching the news (I keep up with things in general online). On the website about the search it has a press release so I assume one was released in the local community. All in all this is what is seems to be done in most missing persons cases. I don't see anything racial about it. I don't know enough about it to really comment anymore.
