I was over at Tattered Coat, when I noticed Matt had a blogad up for the Latoyia Figueroa Reward Fund. After I smacked myself in the head for not thinking of it myself, I created a free ad and posted it in a few minutes.
Anyone who’s read the blog for a while knows stories like this are a pet peeve of mine. I blogged about Figueroa earlier this week, after reading about her case over on All Spin Zone, where they’ve been on a sort of crusade to bring Figueroa’s case to media attention. It’s been a succesful campaign thus far, in that sense, yielding a Philadelphia Daily News article and a front page article on CNN.Com, where the Natalie Holloway case has been getting pretty much non-stop attention. Another case of the blogs leading the media, but I’ll concentrate on the positive and be glad that the case is receiving more attention.
Of course, Latoyia’s case isn’t the only missing persons case you haven’t heard much in the media about. There’s Tamika Huston, whose case I blogged about earlier, when the "Runway Bride" case was in the media.
I wonder if there isn’t more bloggers can do here, when the media doesn’t necessarily see a hot story. I think the example set by All Spin Zone, proves that there is. By the way, if you haven’t dropped by there to contribute to the reward fund, consider doing so.
