Today on The Ed Morrissey Show (3 ET), we’ll have an all-Salem lineup! Townhall’s Guy Benson joins me first to discuss the stories he’s tracking, including the latest polling news from the campaign. Tina Korbe joins me in the second half to talk about the latest on Sarah Palin, and about Barack Obama’s request for a joint session of Congress to lay out his new jobs plan — coincidentally on the same night as the Republican debate.
We’ll also cover the the case of Marizela Perez, who has been missing in the Seattle area for more three months. Marizela’s case has a connection here at Hot Air, as she is the cousin of the Boss Emeritus, Michelle Malkin. Michelle is trying to spread the word through Facebook and Q13Fox/KCPQ in Seattle. We want to encourage prayers for Marizela’s family, and also try to reach anyone in the area who knows where Marizela might be and ask them to contact the police.
The search has its own website now, Find Marizela, for the latest in the efforts to bring Marizela home. There is also a fund for the family to keep the search efforts going. Be sure to check there and at Michelle’s site for further developments, and keep the family in your prayers.
America’s Most Wanted is now on the case, too.
Michelle offered an update earlier this month:
Five months ago today, my 18-year-old cousin Marizela Perez vanished from the University District in Seattle near the campus of the University of Washington, where she was a freshman.
The police have made no new progress in her missing persons case. Since I last updated you in July, we’ve had no new leads or breaks — and there still has been no sign or word from Marizela.
We thank everyone around the country who continues to keep their eyes and ears open — and everyone who continues to keep Marizela and her parents in their thoughts and prayers.
I want to call attention again to the NAMUS database as an invaluable yet underutilized tool for families of the missing and law enforcement agencies …
Be sure to read it all and to keep the family in your prayers.
