Stolen Children

During the past month, the Toledo Blade has run a series of hard-hitting stories on the miseries of teen prostitution. In the latest installment, "Reports of Runaways End up at Bottom of Investigation Pile," Roberta de Boer and Robin Erb describe how the Toledo Police Department has only two detectives who investigate missing person reports, compared with seven 20 years ago. As a result, reports of missing teens can get lost in the shuffle, leaving them increasingly vulnerable to pimps and other predators. Al Tompkins of the Poynter Institute gets credit for letting me and his other readers know about this story.
