    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.

I don't always agree with Thorfan but you know black people (and other minorities) are right to be annoyed. When minorities go missing you almost never hear about it on Nancy Grace (I was shocked she touched the recent Shaniya Davis case) or any of the other talking heads who litter our television channels. How many times do we get to endure the missing white women stories that stretch on for months on Fox News or CNN but missing black women and children get one mention and we never hear the story again.

My former next door neighbors were an interracial couple. When their daughter went missing they tried to bring the story our local news stations but they totally ignored it. I don't know all the details but the child was eventually found in another city committing acts of prostitution (she was 12).

Personally I think there should be some sort of organization that exists to put pressure on the media to cover missing minorities with the same fervor they do for missing white women.

True connection: My second cousin Brett was college roommates with an ex-boyfriend of Natalie shit.
