    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.

as an aside i think it's pretty cool that the black newspaper decided to report this, as no one else did; but i don't think it's a racial issue just because the feds didn't get involved, or because it received no national coverage. missing persons occur way too frequently for each one to get national press. that's just a sad truth.
