    First posting & not sure exactly how/where it's done... but "LISK Hodge Podge" seemed appropriate. After looking at the "last sighting" timelines for the Gilgo Beach 4 & Shannan ('07, '09 & '10 respectively)… Does anyone know of NYC / NYC adjacent escorts / sex workers who went missing in 2008, with their last call/ties being that of Long Island? (Or might someone point me to the thread with this info?) Thanks!

    There are individual missing person threads here. There are not missing "escort" threads here. Is that what you are asking?

    But wouldn't it be more regulated and the women looked after better?

    Dee, thanks for knowing me well enough to curb my foot in mouth.

    Appreciate the reply! I'll try to clarify… I'm wondering if there are LISK threads that have looked into others (resembling the Gilgo Beach 4) that went missing in 2008? I can imagine someone here saw the timeline of GB4 disappearances ('07, '09 & '10), saw that 2008 was "quiet", and researched missing persons within that year/time period, with similar profiles and even perhaps "last eyewitness" accounts as the GB4… Basically, other potential LISK victims yet to be discovered. (Hope that makes more sense…?) Thanks.

    I have a side project I'm working on. (not complete yet, but getting close).

    I feel that there is a bunch of missing women from NYC and the surrounding areas that are not reported. How could they be? Nobody knows. If I'm right in my calculations, it will be astonishing.

    I'm starting to get some real data to back it up. As soon as I get some real concrete data I might need help on what to do with it after that.

    If the key does not fit, it's the wrong key.

    Also, cases possibly of interest to LISK, if that helps

    Backpage shuts down adult section

    https://www.google.com/amp/www.latim...?client=safari

    I'm so glad she and her sister are out of that dangerous world. I don't judge or look down on prostitutes--especially not the ones that are doing on their own volition, but it is tragic to me how many women are pulled into this lifestyle with little to any say in it. I had no idea how prevalent that was.

    I naively thought the sex worker sought out the pimp to get started. How blind I was to the way some parts of this industry operate!

    Great news regarding the back page shut down! I wonder what will happen? Will sex workers go back to the streets to find johns or will another site inevitably pop up?

    One would hope they'd change professions. Some might go back to working the streets temporarily. But in all reality, a new version of Backpage will spring up soon. Same game, different name.

    I don't use Snapchat is that a possible hook up place and would it be harder to track down anyone then say craigslist or backdoor? I know they are impossible enough
