As we approach the 5 year anniversary of Tabitha’s disappearance this post seems to be getting a fair amount of traffic. Most of it is coming from the UK. Did the America’s Most Wanted episode just re-air? Is there news about this case taking place in the UK today? Please leave me a comment and let me know.
A 13 year old girl has gone missing in my neighborhood, and the Metro police don’t seem to be too concerned. This raises all kinds of questions.
The main question is of course where exactly is Tabitha Tudors, and how did she get there? Was it voluntary, or is this foul play. I also can’t help but wonder why this is not getting more attention by the media.
Granted, I first heard about it on the news, but it is not the top story. Why is this kind of story a really big story sometimes, and not others? Does it have to do with the victim’s financial status? Does it have to do with their appearance? Maybe it simply has to do with a lack of "better" news stories at the time.
Another thought that is circling around in my head is whether the family knows more then they are letting on. This is not because of the family, but mostly because of the recent history in these kinds of cases. It is all too common that a child goes missing only to find out that the family did the "missing".
Regardless of any of the periphiral questions, the question that concerns me most is where the hell is Tabitha Tuders? I hope she is found safe and sound.
