Saying he is alarmed by the rate of attempted child abductions in the Chicago area -- as well as by the perceptions that the cases are handled less vigorously when they involve black and Latino youth -- U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Ill., tomorrow will convene an “Emergency Summit on Missing and Endangered Children and Teens.”

Summit on missing children seeks answers
By Gary Marx and David Jackson
5:35 p.m. CST, January 22, 2011
At an emotionally-charged hearing on Chicago’s South Side Saturday, U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush grilled top law enforcement officials about whether they respond forcefully enough when African-American and Hispanic children are reported missing or potentially abducted.
“I want to find out if there is a double standard and if there is, we want to erase it right here, right now,”
Rush told a panel of officials from the Chicago police, FBI and other agencies at the three-hour hearing.

And sadly few media outlets outside of the Chicago Tribune and WGN are even reporting on this summit.
I'm not even finding anything reported about this in the Chicago Defender.

Found one more. Much of the same info, but CLTV is an affiliate of WGN.
Hopefully as more of these meetings occur more Chicago media outlets will cover this issue.
