There is a 25 year old pregnant mother of a 7 year old missing from Philadelphia, PA. Her name is Latoyia Figueroa.
Q:Why aren't the 24 hour news networks and major metropolitan newspapers providing wall-to-wall coverage and updates every fifteen minutes?

Even the story on the CBS 3 website seems half-hearted, saying, "If you have any information, call police." No phone number was given. No special tip line, not even a number for Crime Stoppers.

"He know a lot more than folks think."
It would be funnier if it weren't so frighteningly close to the truth.
