Searching for a Loved One
By: Holly Brantley
A missing loved one is enough cause for concern, but that may not be the worst part. Some run into more red tape than help, while searching for someone who's vanished.
For example, Tonya Rider, a Washington state woman disappeared on her way home from work. Amazingly, police found her alive Thursday night eight days later. Her husband, Tom Rider, tried to file a missing persons report, but questions of jurisdiction, and doubts about his story slowed things down.
