Corporate policy does not care about missing children

I took posters of my daughter issued by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to my local Walmart. They told me they could not post it because they are only allowed to put up the poster that is sent to them from corporate Walmart sent to them from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. This poster is only updated at the store every few months. The best chance for finding your child is in the first 48 hours. It has now been 4 days since my daughter disappeared. I know Walmart cares nothing about the communities it is in. I think it is hypocritical of them to hang a missing child poster and refuse to put up the most current posters of local children brought in by distraught parents.

Instead of blaming the store why not put the blame on your self for either being a horrible parent whose child went missing because she ran away, or a negligent parent who was not watching her child.

Keep a better eye on your child, teach them stranger danger.


Dear Distraught Mother,

I just stumbled upon your posting a few minutes ago. First of all, I want to say: I hope you were able to find your missing daughter alive and well. If she is still missing, please don't ever give up on her........even if she is missing for decades. You keep flooding the airwaves and newspapers with her picture and story because eventhough people and organizations ignore you, her information will be in newspaper archives and on the internet so that if she is still missing when she is an adult, the chance is greater that she will find you when she researches because of questions she has about her identity.

I say this because I found out a few years ago from the couple that raised me, that I was abducted. They refuse to give me any information on who and where my family are. The Prince William County, Virginia Police refuse to help me. A cop even told me that "if you were 16 it would be important to return you to your family but because you're 46, it's not important and you shouldn't rock the boat."

I contacted the National Center For Missing and Exploited Children TWICE. I called their (703) area code headquarters # instead of the 1-800 hotline # both times out of consideration. When I called them, I wasn't sure if I was abducted and I didn't want to tie up the hotline incase a lead came in for another child that was abducted. So, I called the (703) # just to ask them what I needed to do first to determine if I was abducted. Well, the first time the lady asked me what year the possible abduction took place. Apparently the National Center For Missing and Exploited Children has a cutoff date of who they will help (1984)and they meticulously screen their calls to *** people out. I knew I went missing sometime between April 1965 and possibly as late as 1968. They wouldn't even answer my question, even when I called the second time.

You and your daughter have a very valuable asset that my parents and I did not have when I went missing: social media, newspapers, tv, radio. USE THEM.

I just recently started a blog (http://www.yourabducteddaughter.wordpress.com/)which I am shamefully illiterate concerning starting web pages and blogs. My past attempts have been failures because eventhough they say "free", I can't seem to figure out nor succeed at getting it in the search engines for people to find. I am hoping that I can find my parents before they die.

If you have your daughter back, I am happy for you and your daughter. If she is still missing: DON'T EVER GIVE UP and USE THE RESOURCES even if they call you names. THIS IS YOUR DAUGHTER THAT IS MISSING. This is not a case of trying to get the last Elmo at Walmart' Black Friday.
