    You gotta love it. White lady missing for a bit and its all over the interwebs. Other minorities missing for weeks, months, etc…and no whisper. No disrespect to her family and I am very glad she was found.

  • People always have to turn it into a whites vs. minority thing. Sigh.

    Agreed, Velvet. How ridiculous and inappropriate.
