Whenever I see those “Have you seen me posters?” I feel a sadness wash over me. I wonder where they are. Reading through the list of people on Wikipedia who “disappeared mysteriously” there are so many cases like this. And it’s way worse if it is a child, because you think of the fear they must have felt and what it must be like to be a parent of a child who disappears never to be heard from again. That lack of closure must be terrible. If the child is killed, as sad as that is, you have closure, but when they disappear, there is still that chance that they were abducted and raised by someone else — that part of you is still out there. It must just be an awful experience.
