Each year thousands of young people disappear never to be seen again. Although many teens run away due to abusive households, drugs or simply because they don’t want to follow house rules, it’s becoming an epidemic when thousands are missing especially minorities because the media tends to ignore it when the victims are not majority white.
According to Farrah Gray, People go missing virtually every day in the Washington DC metro area. There is a population of more than 6,000,000.
But when so many of the missing persons are children, the police go on high alert. According to media accounts, the disappearance of five teenage girls in the last month have led DC Police to suspect there is a serial child abductor in the area.
Police are reportedly asking for any information on these missing girls:
