If this had been a four year old of any race...

people would have been out in force to actively look for him. Volunteers with orange vests, flashlights, candlelight vigils, the works. If you're gonna vanish, you'd better be a kid or a relatively attractive woman to get a lot of attention. Otherwise, you're just one more mention on the evening news or, if you're elderly, a silver alert. It's unfortunate that people are what we are but you'd better be a child or an adult woman who is pleasing to the eye to get the citizenry actively looking for you. There was an article on Yahoo a while back about a man who committed suicide in his house in Wisconsin four years ago and was only found when the city started inching toward claiming the house for zoning violations and unpaid taxes. He had an ex-wife, an adult daughter and friends. But because he casually mentioned that he thought about moving to New Mexico, no one ever looked for him again.
