A bandwagon you WANT to be on!

We are all becoming painfully aware that even the news has become a glamour industry. The recent disappearance of Latoyia Figueroa is a prime example of how the mainstream news media will conveniently overlook those stories without the glamour of say, a rich debutante. This is where we, the new s media come in.

Latoyia Figueroa of South Philadelphia has been missing and needs your help. She is 24 years old, 5'2, and five months pregnant. On July 18, Latoyia didn't pick up her 7-year-old child from daycare and was reported missing on July 21 by her family. She has simply vanished.

A reward has been established for the search effort, and is ever-increasing.

Because of the lack of mainstream media involvement, we bloggers need to take action now. Please visit Mr. Richard Blair of All Spin Zone for more information on this search effort. Pass this on, read the articles, post her picture... Get this woman HOME and her unborn child SAFE.

If the mainstream media won't take on the task, we certainly will.

Update: Fox takes on the story (finally).

Hey...came here via Queen of Ass. Just wanted to say that I'm glad you're making people aware of this situation. I'm getting very disturbed by the fact that the only way that a missing person gets noticed is if they're blond females. Good for you. I hope this story ends well.

This is a horrific story and one I am almost afraid to follow. A town only twenty minutes from me, Ravenna, was world reknown not even two years ago when a pregnant woman went missing only to have been found weeks later dead, her baby cut out and living with the woman who killed her. I hope with all of my heart that this isn't another such story.
