Yes, Virginia, there is an Andrew Malcolm, and he joins me today on The Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET)! The Prince of Twitter and I will talk about the intersection of media and politics today, including the slow news week we’re currently enjoying, the consequences of failing to qualify for the Virginia ballot, and the twists and turns of 2011. Plus, we will also take your questions in our Lightning Round in the last 20 minutes of the segment — so make sure you’re registered at Ustream to be one of our Chatizens!
Marizela Perez has been missing in the Seattle area for more than nine months now. 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 has an update on the case:
She disappeared from the University of Washington campus area in Seattle at the age of 18 exactly seven months ago today. Spring and summer came and went, along with Marizela’s 19th birthday. Autumn is now upon us. Her university friends are back in school.
Life goes on, but remains at a standstill.
Grief deepens and settles without the ability to mourn.
There are no new developments from the Seattle Police Department. Nothing to report.
The family is moving forward on the legal front to try and obtain information from Marizela’s Internet/social networking accounts that the Seattle Police Department refuses to share with her parents. Internet lawyers tell us the case is complicated, but they’re willing to help and we are grateful.
Continued thanks for all your prayers and well wishes for Emem and her parents.
Keep the prayers coming.
