Booneville, AR – Young mother Kelli Renee Rice, 25, has been missing since March 2, 2008, but you wouldn’t know it from reading the papers. There’s no widespread search for Kelli. No press coverage, no t-shirts or angel-winged photoshopped pictures circling the internet or the globe. Nobody, it seems, really cares that much what happened to Kelli Rice – except her family. Kelli’s mother, Rhonda, has asked us to feature Kelli on our site in hopes that someone – anyone – will know what has happened to her. Kelli Rice was born on August 1, 1983. A tall, slender girl with light brown hair, she’d run with the same small group of friends since grade school. She hung out with them, partied with them, did drugs with them at times. Kelli was not a saint, her family will tell you. But she was a sweet girl, and trusting – sometimes too trusting, they believe.…Continue Reading

Tucson, AZ – It’s a relatively common phenomenon–someone signs an agreement for a rental storage unit, gets assigned a space, stows his stuff…and then doesn’t keep up with the payments. It happened in Tucson at a rental facility called the U-Store-It, and in February 2007, the unit in question got cleaned out.
Among other items, employees found a plastic tub. A plastic tub that smelled horrible. The tub and the unit’s other contents went into the trash dumpster. Apparently at least one employee worried over that tub overnight, because the next day, police were called to investigate.…Continue Reading

Lynn, Mass. – Giovanni Gonzalez is five years old.He’s been missing since Sunday, and now Giovanni’s father, Ernesto Gonzalez, won’t tell police where his son is.Sound familiar? On Friday evening, Giovanni’s mother, Daisy Colon, took her son to a scheduled weekend visitation with his father.But on Sunday, when Colon went to pick up Giovanni, Ernesto Gonzalez wouldn’t answer the door. When police arrived and entered the home, they found Ernesto, but no Giovanni.

The Lynn Police Department and Massachusetts State Police have issued an endangered child advisory for Giovanni.
