    Bumping for Sarah. I wish I could profile her on my site but I only do American cases -- I'd like to do foreign ones but I'm swamped as it is.

    She has a sweet face. I don't know if I'm convinced that she's dead. I was just reading a book called "The Missing" by Andrew O'Hagen where he writes about British missing people -- not specific cases per se, but the phenomenon in general. Apparently there are a lot of people in England who are missing and don't know, or they do know and simply don't care. O'Hagen interviewed a girl who said she knew she was missing and had seen her posters, and didn't make a great deal of effort to hide herself, she just didn't use her real name and didn't call home. I wonder if Sarah might be in that faceless crowd. It's certainly better than the alternative. You can never give up hope.
