in fact Vinny.... if someone in your family or if you ended up missing wouldn't you want the media involved in the search??
or do you feel like hey.. just another crime.. next channel..
we need to value human life more than we do...
For your information, I actually WAS kidnapped when I was younger, by my family from Greece, they wanted me to go back to Greece with them, but the police had headed them off at the airport. Which was good I guess, but it didn't need to be in the news, and was not.
I think some people feel that their missing family member isn't important enough if they aren't on tv, but that just isn't the case.
