As a community we must be on the look out for children and the children in our vicinity. There is no reason why this trend of abducted young girls have not reach media airwaves. The girls are young, the article stated, between the ages of 12-19 years old and they are predominately African American and Hispanic. There is no surprise about the lack of coverage concerning missing children of color. But there are too many missing and not enough attention placed on their case. This is so sad, because these young children are being preyed upon and it’s not right. No monster should be able to abduct kids and possibly force them into prostitution. There has to be something we can do. I don’t know if its calling our kids while they are walking to their destination, teaching them how to be aware of their surroundings, ensuring someone is home when they get home, maybe even driving them to where they need to go. I just want kids to be safe.

But King fears the girls suffered a far worse fate, and is appealing to the public to help get the word out.”
